Hello my cheeky chai lattes, how are you doing?
I’ve seen this tag floating around the internet before but a couple of days ago one of the bloggers I follow (Jess from https://sunshineandteacups.wordpress.com/) did this tag and it inspired me to have a go. To be honest most days I wear slightly different make up but I’m judging this on a fairly average day where I just went to the shops but it’s the kinda thing I’d wear to lectures or going out for the day.
Okay so as you may have guessed, this is my face, ta da!! I would like to point out that yes I do have spots, great observation. I’ve had spots/acne/whatever you want to call it since about that age of 10 and I’m now 19, they’re annoying but I’ve just kind of accepted that I have oily skin so it’s gonna happen and I haven’t really found anything that manages to keep them at bay. Oh just for reference too, that bad boy in-between my eyebrows is definitely a firm favourite. 😉 Also the second picture is just there to prove that I don’t always look moody, haha.
On to the products! *Disclaimer* I will be recording the full price of these items but some I did get in a set, on sale or as a gift. So for most of these I didn’t pay full price but I cannot tell you what I actually paid because frankly I don’t remember!

Foundation-Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour in Light Porcelain (£7.99 at Boots)

Some people may think this is a lot but I know I didn’t actually spend this amount myself and it wasn’t all in one go, so that’s how I’m justifying it haha. I’m thinking about trying the £20 make up challenge, for someone who needs contour to not look like an egg and doesn’t feel like herself unless her brows are filled in, it would be quite the test! Let me know if you’re interested!
Lots of love
