fotd: day in, day out

27 September 2011

Just a normal day at school today. The boarding house is busy with girls worrying about UCAS, personal statements and predictive grades, and so I seem to have turned into a form of agony aunt! I've not been too well recently with what appears to be a kidney infection, so had a nasty blood test this morning. I'm fine with blood tests and needles, but blood tests don't really like me and I often faint (thankfully I didn't today!) However, I now have a lovely fat raised bruise on my arm. Beautiful.

Just a quick FOTD today. I was in a rush to get to the blood test so didn't do much..was pretty basic! Since Autumn has arrived, I'm using my Sleek Original palette so much more, as I'm loving the greeny and ambery shades. (Apologies for quality of these photos. I have a fab camera but like I said, was in a rush, lighting was bad and just clicked 'take'! Hello grainy-ness!)

Foundation: Diorskin Forever in 022
Powder: MAC Loose Powder in Natural Flare
Blush: MAC Pinch O Peach
Eyeshadow: Sleek Original Palette
Mascara: Collection 2000 Skyscraper
Lips: MAC Sweet and Single Barbie

I'm not a massive fan of these 2 photos as I was in a rush and I think it's fairly obvious I was! However, I want to start doing more FOTD's so will try not to mind so much..we all have our good makeup days and bad makeup days! 

For those who don't follow me on Twitter, I mentioned yesterday that I've updated my blog sale! There's a couple of bits of Benefit, Dior and Clinique for sale. Have a browse! Hope you're all having a lovely week.

  1. Sooo pretty! Your eyelashes are amaze! :D xx

  2. You are stunning!!! I wish I could just 'click and go' gaaahhh.

    I know how you feel about blood tests! I had a bruise on mine for weeks after :( Boo. Hope you feel better soon though xx

  3. I need to try out that mascara, your lashes look amazing! Do they do a waterproof version? Normal mascara never holds the curl for me!

    Looking lovely.


  4. Wow Tamsin! You look stunning. And those eyelashes have seriously got me envious!x


I appreciate each and every little comment I get. Thank you.
