The skincare tag

I've seen the skincare tag going around on other people blogs so I decided I would give it a go so I hope you enjoy...

1.  How many times do you wash your face daily
 I wash my face twice a day. Once when I wake up just after I brush my teeth, and then again right before I go to bed after I take my make up off.

2.  What skin type do you have?
I have dry skin in the summer and the slightest bit of warm weather. My face just peels but in the winter my face is more normal just oily enough to stop me from peeling but not too oily.

3.  What is your current facial wash?
I currently use the Simple skincare facial wash as I honestly think it does wonders for my skin.

4.  Do you exfoliate?
No, not really. I have in the past before fake tanning but not normally no I don't.

5.  What brand do you use?
I always use Simple. Simple all the way!

6.  What moisturizer do you use?
guess what...I use simple skincare.

7.  Do you have freckles?
Yes, I have lots of them.

8.  Do you use eye cream?
No, there is a lot of debate about whether it benefits you or not and I don't feel the need to use it right now.

9.  Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Nope, I've never had any problems with acne.

10.  Did you ever have to use pro-activ?
No, I've never had any problems to use this.

Autumn make up

I decided this year to do a autumn make up look. I think make up is a very personal thing. I do make up with one main rule which is heavy on eyes or heavy on lips, this means if I go particularly heave and bold on either my eye make up I would go light on my lip make up less dramatic. I know some people in autumn go very dark on the lips but I much prefer to go dark and dramatic on they eyes, so here is how I achieve my autumn look. I hope you like it as much as I do. No make up \/

To start of for my foundation/base I use the max factor pan stick, I used the pointed foundation brush by real techniques. I applied a really thing layer on my skin so it is still light and not to harsh on my skin as I'm only fourteen I much prefer to keep it light as otherwise it doesn't look right on my face.

So I am not one to pretend I have perfect skin so I used the Rimmel wake me up concealer to try hide or "correct" my imperfections. I just dab a bit of the concealer under my eyes, on the red around my nose and any other areas with little blemishes or any unwanted spots. I gently buff this in using the real techniques contour brush (I am aware there is a buffing brush I just slightly prefer the contour brush).

To stop the shine on face in real life and especially in pictures I just dusted a little bit if the Miss Sporty stay matte powder I just dusted this in with a Primark brush as I think goes on really nicely, and again I am applying this really thin onto my face.

Now moving onto eyebrows, I never find eyebrow products that I love or stick with so I was very happy I bought this product. I naturally have very dark eyebrows anyway so I don't need too much on my eyebrows but I watch a lot of the YouTubers so I though I would try the Tanya burr perfect brows palette. I use the hot cocoa shade (bottom right) to fill my eyebrows and give them a tiny bit more shape and I use the shade pebble (top right) on the inner part of my eyebrows where the hair is naturally lighter. To finish off I use the highlighter fairy cake (top left) just on my brow bone.

For the actual eyes I used a new brand for me I had never heard of them until now, I used the Kiko eye shadow in the shade infinity completely across the lid and into the crease, for most if my make up looks I used multiple eye shadows but this one was bold on its own so I just added a little bit of black pencil eyeliner in my water line.

To make my eyes just a bit bolder I used my favourite the Benefit They're real mascara on my upper and lower lashes.

To finish off the look I used one of my mini 17 lip glosses.

I hope you like this autumn inspired look, I have been wearing it so much recently and though I would share it with you.
