FOTD | feat. Bourjois Healthy Mix & Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo

Hydraluron Moisture Booster, No.7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream, Seventeen Stay Don’t Stray Primer, Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer, Benefit Rockateur Blusher, GOSH Brow Pen, Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo in Pomegranate, Maybelline Master Smokey Eyeliner, Maybelline Felt Tip Liner, MaxFactor Masterpiece Max Mascara, Maybelline Fit Me Powder, Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum.
This is one of those photos that was achieved after around 234343545422189867.654 attempts, and even now I’m not feeling it at all so I have resigned myself to thinking that it was a bad day for taking blog photos.  Anyhow, this is my current everyday face!  It is made up pretty much entirely of drug store products, which isn’t unusual for me since I can only buy high end make up as a treat.  I have been using Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation for a while, which I love but then I stumbled across this Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation and became curious.  I love everything about this base, I can see why Healthy Mix is very hyped amongst bloggers!  The coverage is good, which is the first thing I always look for, and I love the dewy but not shiny finish it leaves.  The only thing is that I am paler now than when I bought this back in the summer so I probably be better off with a shade lighter than this one. 
Maybelline is getting a lot of love from me lately, as you can see from my list of products.  I think they have some really good eye make up lately and the 24hr Colour Tattoos are my latest favourites.  I am wearing the shade Pomegranate and in my opinion it brings out the colour of my eyes, which was a bit of a surprise at first but not an unwelcome one! 
My trusty Revlon Lip Butter is on my lips, and the best thing about wearing these is that they keep your lips moisturised all day.  I suffer from ridiculously dry lips all through the year so when I discovered these I was so so happy, and I pretty much chucked my boring vaseline tin out of the window with glee.  I actually still have the Vaseline, but it sits unloved in a distant drawer for now. 
What have you been loving in your daily make up lately?  Do you love any of the same products as me? xx
