My Saturday Face

Hello and a very happy Saturday I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.Now anyone who knows me in real life will tell you that I have a tendency to be a bit of a disaster zone when it comes to make up (even my husband nags me about it!!) so I am trying to get better with the whole make up malarkey.

My mission started last weekend when I decided that maybe I needed some new foundation as the one I had been using (Maybeline) was probably a tad to too dark for my skin tone. So this led me to wandering around Boots in Solihull like a lost soul getting more and more confused with a multicolured hand where I had dabbed loads of different foundations on to see if I liked them!! Thankfully husband noticed a big sign advertising a new service from No7 which aimed to match you with your ideal foundation shade so I approached the sales lady and asked if she could match me. So to do this they wipe a small bit of your make up off from your jaw line then hold some weird meter to your face which tells them the right shade for you. Now I am very fair and freckled so I nearly always buy the lightest shade but no I am actually the second lightest!!

I was OK until I had to then choose which foundation I actually wanted as there were loads in the end I decided I wanted a dewy look but also with some anti ageing as lets face it I am not getting any younger these days!!! So here is what I chose:

I have now been using it for a week and I have to say I do love it and whilst it wasn't cheap I know now that its the right shade for me and I finally have the look I wanted!!
They also happened to be doing a buy one get one half price offer so I picked up a mascara as well which then meant I also got a free gift to boot!!

I have to say I love the mascara it is waterproof and rub proof ( I am terrible for rubbing my eyes when I wear make up!!) up until now I have been using Maybeline but it was quite clumpy! The free gift was a lipstick, eye shadow, eye liner and eye shadow!!

So here goes the before and after this is me just out of the shower and totally make up free and then me with all my new make up on!!!

Just for good measure I then treated myself to some new nail varnish today which is MUA in Bold Blue which was a bargain £1 and a Barry M Sequin Nail effects in White.

So there you have it I promise from now on to make a proper effort on the make up front but I still cannot for the life of me put eyeliner on my eyelid!!!
