15 Minute Face for Friday Night Drinks

Hello everyone!
I'm Lisa from Scatter Brained Blogging and I'm so excited to be holding down the fort while Anita is on a well-deserved break!
I thought I’d bring you a quick-and-simple look I sported for casual drinks on Friday night. I wanted something that made me feel refreshed and put together after a week’s working. So I cleaned off what was left of the day’s makeup and got to making myself look alive again.
  • First up I used my Inglot makeup base to prime my skin. It’s nice and light and helps my foundation last for hours.
  • I used my Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in 010 Light Porcelain – possibly the palest foundation I’ve ever found in Boots, it’s the perfect colour for my skin tone. It’s a good medium coverage and a satin-skin-like finish, so it’s possible to achieve a near-flawless finish with it.
  • For concealer I used Collection 2000 Lasting Perfectiong in 02 Fair, I used it under my eyes too because after a weeks work I needed something heavy duty!
  • I used my Revlon Photoready cream blush in Pinched, I reviewed this on my blog recently – it gives a lovely warm glow to the skin with the slightest shimmer. I think it really livens up my complexion. I contoured with Nars Laguna, which was my first ever bronzer and I'm still very much in love.
  • For eyes I used my Urban Decay Glide 24/7 Pencil in Demolition and Benefit’s Peek-a-Bright-Eyes. I was looking for something that would brighten my eyes and give a little definition. For mascara I used Maybeline The Falsies – I picked this up on a whim and I'm still trying to figure out how I feed about it, it’s not unlike Benefit’s They’re Real but a little less defined.
  • I quickly ran Catrice Eyebrow pencil in Date With Ash-ton through my brows and for lips chose my newest Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya as a subtle pop of colour and I think it compliments the cream blush really well!
And that’s it – nothing too out there, just something that made me look a little more alive and presentable for an evening in the local.
I hope your enjoyed what is actually my first every FOTD post!
What’s your look of choice for a casual Friday drink?
Do you go subtle like I do or do you go for something fancier?
