Face of the Day - Weekend Away

Face of the Day Weekend Away Glasgow Girls Guide

When I'm heading away for the weekend I try and pack fairly light when it comes to make-up. I pick products from my make-up collection that I know can be dual purpose if necessary and that way I don't have to heave around a ridiculously heavy make-up bag when travelling. It also saves more space in my bag for other important necessities..... like clothes and wine ;-). 

This is the make-up I chose to wear while away for the weekend in North Berwick. I was spending a lot of time out and about so while I wanted to look nice, I didn't want to be too over the top for a stroll on the beach!

Starting off with foundation I took my Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation and concealer. This foundation is a really nice colour match for my face in winter, when I tend to be a little paler than usual and it lasts the majority of the day without wearing off which is always a must for me. I always set my foundation with a powder, I just happen to be using the Rimmel Stay Matte powder at the moment, I'm not sponsored by Rimmel honest! I also took the Nars Laguna bronzer with me which is one of my all time favourite bronzers. This is probably my fourth or fifth time re-purchasing and while I use other bronzers on and off, this is always the one I come back to. It is really good for fair skin and gives a nice light brown glow without being too orange or packed full of glitter which I hate! I used a Estee Lauder Soft Smudge brown eye pencil to fill in my eye brows. This is technically an eye liner but its a nice match for my eyebrow colour and despite being "soft smudge" lasts for just as long as any of my other brow pencils.

 For blush I used Nars Roman Holiday which is a cool-toned pink blush with a matte finish.This was part of a holiday set I was given for Christmas and it came with the matching Roman Holiday lipstick which I also took with me. For eyes I used a Mac 'Reelers and Rockers' eye shadow palette. This is a really old palette from one of Mac's collections but I like to take it with me whenever I'm away from home as it has both gold and silver toned light and dark shadows so gives lots of different options for day and night looks. I used a little Gaelic Gold (middle of the bottom row) for my eyelid with Crown and Sceptre (bottom right) for the corner and crease and finally a little White Rabbit (top left) for the inner corner of my eye. I finished this with some Lancome Crayon Kohl black eyeliner and the Benefit They're Real mascara.

And that's it. A quick, easy and really low maintenance look.
