FOTD: Full Coverage and minimal eye makeup


I know, I know... Another neutral look... I apologize, but I really wanted to mention my Holy Grail Full Coverage Foundation. I can't imagine my life without it! It is the amazing Vichy Dermablend!!! I have been using it for over 6 years and it always saves me when I have problems with nasty breakouts. It gives the best coverage I could ask for and it is just incredible. I will dedicate a full review to it soon (and the Vichy Dermablend powder), but today you can see a little preview of the product on my face. Due to lots of stress, I got a new wave of breakouts on my neck and jawline again and it is driving me crazy!!! Without this corrective foundation I wouldn't be able to go out of the house. If you suffer from acne- you will LOVE it and it will change your life. It covers everything, without clogging your pores and looking cakey! 

Anyway.... :) Let's get cracking with the look. I was going for a flawless base, simple eye makeup and glossy lips, because I only had 5 minutes to get ready.  I cleansed and moisturised my face and applied a generous amount of Vichy Dermablend allover my face and neck, using it as a concealer under my eyes and on any imperfections as well. 
I set the foudation with a Loose Powder from Liz Earle* and added some colour to my cheeks with the NARS Orgasm blush. Flawless base - done! 

On my eyes, I smudged an Urban Decay Glide On Pencil in shade Bourbon and added one coat of a natural Occhioni mascara by Neve Cosmetics*. I also tidied up my eyebrows with an Etude House pencil. On my lips I am wearing a very affordable plumping lip gloss by MUA in shade Peach Shimmer.  I feel a little bit naked without my signature winged liner, but I really didn't have time for it :)  

Please excuse my bushy eyebrows, I am growing them out :)
