I wanted my lips to do all the talking with this look so I opted to wear a bold and bright pink lipstick (Fuchsia) by Sleek Makeup. This is my favourite lipstick of all time but I haven't used it since I left uni so I decided to bring it back especially after seeing Marcus' pink celebration on Xfactor last weekend.
The rest of my face is very simple with a little cheek and nose contour using Sleek's contour kit (dark) and winged out eyeliner using Rimmel's liquid liner in black.
I just got back from an interview, fingers crossed but I think I did good. On today's look, I decided on a very nude look ( in my opinion) using matte eye shadows from Inglot and the Sleek Storm palette.
On my face, I am wearing:
Mary Kay medium coverage foundation (600) & face powder
Mac select cover-up concealer (NC45)
Sleek contour kit
Barry M blush (no5)
On my eyes, I used the following:
rimmel's eyebrow pencil (004)
NYX eyebrow kit (brown/black)
eye lid - Inglots eye shadow (357matte)
crease - Matte brown eye shadow from the Sleek Storm palette
Maybelline gel liner
MUA eye pencil (black)
Maybelline's great last mascara and Mary Kay black mascara
Finally on my lips, I have:
Rimmel lip pencil (Tiramisu) and Mac Lip pencil (chestnut)
I love doing tags so I decided to do this as well.

MAKE-UP What foundation do you use? I use Mary Kay's medium or full coverage foundation in shade 600. How about concealer? I use a combination of Mary Kay's concealers and Mac's select cover concealer. I use Mac to brighten under my eyes and Mary Kay to actually conceal and cover up blemishes. Do you know your undertone color? I have yellow or golden undertones What do you think of fake eyelashes? I love them. I was never into them but sometime last year, I tried my first pair and haven't stopped ever since. I don't wear them daily, just when I want to feel glamorous. Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months? Yep. I definitely don't want an eye infection so I toss mine. What brand of mascara do you use? I love Maybelline lash stiletto, Maybelline great last or Mary Kay. Sephora or MAC? Well since we don't have Sephora in the UK, I'll go for MAC Do you have a MAC Pro-card? nope. Not a Pro yet. What makeup tools do you use in make up application? I use brushes mainly for my make up application. Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes? Yep. I use Urban Decay Primer Portion, Mac Paint Pots or NYX Jumbo Pencils. For the face? I used Mary Kay face primer for a while but currently using Milk of Magnesia What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)? ahhhh!! I have so many but I love all the colours on the Sleek storm palette, my Inglot duo palette, Macs carbon, texture and the Frontcover eyeshadow palettes. Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner? I use pencil most of the time but also use liquid and gel liner.How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil? I don't any more. When I was learning, it was a daily occurrence but as they say; practice makes perfect. What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? I don't mind them. Do you use mineral makeup? I've never used one and don't think I'll ever use one. I love my liquid foundation too much. What is your favorite lipstick? I really can't choose one. How about lipgloss? i am not a big fan of lip glosses, i am more of a lipstick girl. What is your favorite blush to use? I love Sleek sahara and Barry M's no5 Do you buy your makeup on ebay? I've never bought any from ebay but I've looked and wouldn't mind buying from their in the future. Do you like drugstore makeup? I love drug store make up. Most of my collection are from drug store.

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes? Yes Yes Yes. I thought about it for a long time but haven't done it because I don't have the funds to pay for the class but it is still in my wishlist.Are you clumsy in putting on makeup? nahhh. I like to take my time when am doing my make up Name a makeup crime that you hate? There are too many but the one I hate the most are using black pencil or black eye shadow to fill in your brows, people that use black pencil on their lips and don't blend it out properly or people that shave off all their eyebrows n then tattoo it back on. Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones? I like colour in lipsticks and eye shadows but I also like neutral colours. It really depends on how I feel on the day. Which celebrity always has great make up? Mrs Kim Kardashian always looks amazing. Also my sister Beyonce never disappoints. If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use? I will choose mascara to open up my eyes and make me look more awake. Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on? Yes. I do most times. Do you think you look good even without any makeup on? ofcourse. I think I look just as good. In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line? I will say Mac and Sleek because some of the Mac products are just amazing but not very purse friendly whereas Sleek is just as amazing and very purse friendly. What do you think of Makeup?? I think it is the best thing ever invented. It can transform anyone from drab to fab and it is just an exciting way of expressing myself.
Citronella Crush is an eye shadow from the FrontCover To Go palette that can be found here. A lime green eye shadow with little shimmer and it is one of my favorite shadows to use for a little colour on the lid during the day.
I decided to lightly sweep it across the lid, line the lash line using a gel liner and finish by adding mascara to my lashes.
Mary Kay medium coverage foundation (600) and Powder.
Mac light over dark mineralize blush & Bourjois brun illusion (11) blush.
Rimmel eye brow pencil (brown/black 004)
citronella crush eyeshadow
Maybelline gel liner
MUA eye pencil (black)
Mary Kay mascara (black)
Mac lip liner (chestnut)

I really love this eye shadow. It is very pigmented and pops when paired with a good eye shadow base underneath. Perfect for day or night look.
Firstly, I outlined my eyebrow shape using Rimmel eyebrow pencil in black brown (004) and then filled in the brows with NYX eyebrow kit in Dark brown/brown. I used MAC's select coverup concealer (NC45) to further outline the brows. I do this first so I can blend out the concealer using my foundation.
Face: I am wearing Sleek's Foundation in Terracotta and used Mary Kay's powder as a setting powder. I used same concealer as above under my eyes to cover dark circles and also brighten my face. I also used Sleek's contour kit in Dark to contour and highlight the cheeks and nose.
Eyes:I am wearing Rimmel's Glam'eyes liquid eyeliner on my upper lids, a black pencil on the upper and lower lashline and a black waterproof mascara on my lashes.
Cheeks:I am wearing BarryM's blush no5 on the apples of my cheeks.
Lips:Lined my lips using MAC's lip pencil (chestnut) and topped of with a natural collection lipgloss from Boots (no name on it).
