On My Face #2

Image

Here is my second FOTD post, the first from way back in October. I am trying to do these sorts of posts more often as I learn to sort out the macro function on my camera. It is incredibly difficult to take detailed pictures of my makeup but I think I have been slowly figuring it out. Hooray for gradually developing camera skills!

A standard look of mine, including some old favourites, some new gems and the Kylie Jenner inspired nude lip look that I cannot stop wearing.

My “I’m lazy but I want to be tanned” Routine

Image

As bare leg weather approaches, self-tanners re-emerge from the back of my cupboards to aid in providing some colour to my pale and lifeless legs. When it comes to self-tanning, I’m pretty much a no frills kind of person and I usually can’t be bothered to deal with anything too high maintenance. I like gradual tanners because they can be applied like a lotion and they provide a nice but not too dramatic tan.
