bobbi brown ultra nude EOTD with naked velvet lip & dollskin cheek

Another neutral, simple, work-appropriate FOTD today, wearing the Bourjois Healthy Mix over Revlon's Color Correcting (and not labelled as such but definitely mattifying) Primer and under It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Loose Powder using Kevin James Bennett's / Wayne Goss's roll-and-press-with-a-puff method followed with a spritz of makeup finishing spritz. This quite happily lasted all day without requiring touch-up, providing a surprisingly fairly matte finish on my oily-combination skin. I think the choice of primer and powder have a lot to do with this and I'm looking forward to trying it with some strobe cream underneath it mixed in for some more glow next time.

Also, I'm always so surprised how often the least amazingly eye-catching products can be so effective on the face (MAC Harmony blush or Tarte's Exposed anyone??!!). Bobbi Brown's Ultra Nude Eye Palette is so plain in its packaging and yet so absolutely perfect in so many natural, neutral ways. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again- Loreal's Million Volume Lashes (gold tube) is firmly one of my all time favourite mascaras- amazing volume, length, curl, that doesn't flake or smudge at all throughout the day. It seriously checks every single box for me and with an affordable price tag to boot.

Finally, the lips- I am seriously loving my new nude lippies, with Coral Colours' Naked Velvet lipstick fast making it's way into my current faves (along with Loreal's Color Riche lipstick in Nude- not pictured). More on those later...

Adios mamacitas, Happy West Australia Day, Happy Birthday my dear sweet hubster Tony, and may you all have a beautiful, blessed week,
