So today’s face of the day looks like this…
It has reminded me, that even I get into routines and reach for the same products daily. I don’t play with colour enough anymore, so my mission is to wear a different eysleshadow colour everyday for the next week.
What do you think? How much do you play with colour?
Morning I went Aldi shopping yesterday (this makes me smile everytime I write it because my other half thinks it’s hilarious to sing “I’m an Aldi shopper” over 50 cents Im a windows shopper haha!)
Anyways there is a point to me telling you this as I’m testing out various make up products from their Lacura range and yesterday grabbed this lippy for a bargain 2 quid!! It’s more pink than I thought but I’m liking it. I’ll obviously do a full lacura post once I’ve tried a few more bits but for now what do you think?…
I’ll review some of these products separately but for now here is my face of the day. Would love to hear your feedback in comments below.
It includes new treats like the Lord & Berry Bronzer I received in this month’s Birchbox, the Lacura eyeshadow pallette that cost £4 from Aldi! and the Benefit They’re Real Push Up Eyeliner that I got with December’s very inspirational Feminism issue of Elle Magazine. I recommend you all go grab a copy!
So today I have a new wrangle dress and I love to contrast so I’ve gone for bright pink lips and some natural eyes
Starts like this..
Then using these..
Foundation Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation in BUFF love the wayvshe uses opti-light technology to make me feel flawless and then this…
Bronzer Arbonne… Defines perfectly and blends smoothly over the top
Blusher So Susan Universal Blush to apples of my cheeks love the shimmer brick style effect of this tonal blush
Eyeshadow some naturals in a Ruby and Millie old pallette I’m neve roofing to ever be able to use up!
Mascara Dior Diorshow Extase Mascara in black love this especially after lash curlers it’s a fab mascara
Brows HD Brows Professional Brow Palette to fill in my gaps 😉
Lips a combination of Bobbi Brown Artstick Bright Raspberry toned down by NYX Gloss in Natural
To Create This…
Thoughts? Do you like to contrast? As always like and comment below nice to know you’re out there
My bin men asked me at 7am how I can say that smiling (as I put out my bins in my marvel pj’s!! Haha!!) but I’m bouncing back after a weird day yesterday and as I said to him, the sun is shining it’s a nice day what’s not to smile about?
Now just on that happy buzz I’ve done my make up, blogged for u guys, enjoyed a cuppa in the garden and I’ve listened to YouTube videos all morning that make me laugh. Including loads by Lethal Bizzle which is where I got my title from! Dench is a descriptive word in the dictionary as well as STAY DENCH being a brand! I like using the word and I really want Bizzle and Frimpong to bring out a Girls range because all the Ts are unisex and I don’t want Dan to get all moody when his looks more Dench on me!
Anyways I digress my make up today started like this
Eyes Arbonne Calm Soothing Eye Gel
Lips Dr Lipp original nipple balm for lips
Primer MAC Prep & Prime Skin Base
Cuticle Oil Nails Inc Vitamin E oil pen

Back later with my Wednesday Wishlists
Day 5 of me doing face of the day and the product list is long…
Eye Care HD Brows Eye Smoothing Serum & Arbonne Calm Soothing Gel
Lip Care Dr Lipp original nipple balm for lips = new fav!!
Face Primer MAC Prep and Prime Skin Base loving the thickness and texture of this primer that disappears to create a smooth even skintone
Eye Primer Absolute New York
Hair Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle this has UV protection so needed on sunny days like today
Make Up Products
Foundation Dior Forever Foundation 020 – was going to use my normal foundation then remembered this sachet is still going! Love it light, glides on silky smooth!
Concealer Arbonne Light concealer just enough coverage without being to thick and creasing under my eyes and helps hiding the bags!!
Bronzer Arbonne just because first one I came to again although was a lot harder to blend compared to others I’d used this week where as I find when used with the Arbonne foundation it works better alongside the optilight technology.
Eye Shadow I used MAC beaded on my whole eye then Bronzer to create a defined effect along the fold of the eyelid and finished with MAC blackberry on the very outer corners. Just something neutral and easy to go with the bright lips!
Eyeliner Eyeko London Skinny mini in black, love love love this it’s like applying Eyeliner using a fine felt tip pen so easy just glides across the lash line
Mascara Laura Mércier Long Lash
Brows HD Brows Professional Palette
Lipliner NYX Plush Red
Lipstick Bella Pierre Ruby Lipstick, OMG this smooth suturing lipstick is the most perfect shade of pillar box reds with tones that make me feel confident and bubbly this lasts ages as well, 6 hours in fact before I realised I needed a refresher, recieved in my July GlossyBox would highly recommend and my fruwnd Christie who I referred is going to let me try her orange one woop woop!
Perfume Vera Wang Princess I chose this for a number of reasons, it’s Friday and it’s one of my favourites, the waterlily, apple and mandarin make it a perfect light fresh summer fragrance and finally despite the fact I’m 28 my mum and dad still call me princess 👸
Thoughts? What’s your face of the day? Do you share it if so please share your link I’d love to see others
So today is sooooo sticky and hot, I was in work at 8.30 so my FOTD is a little late again, sorry 🙂
Face Wipes Yes To Cucumber facial towlettes, I know I said this made my skin irritated yesterday but I really wanted skin to change its mind on these Wipes they are just so thick and smell so nice!
Mask Akane Mask Cocoon Nocturne this is an overnight mask that’s like the pot of putty you stick your finger in as a kid to make fart noises, sorry I know it’s childish just really made me smile! It’s amazeballs it glides on, dries nicely without feeling like my face has been set in concrete and feels so luxurious washing off, looking forward to trying this properly tonight now I know my skin likes it.
Lips Dr Lipp original nipple balm for lips, I loved this so much yesterday I had to use it again while I had the mask on.
Eye serum HD Brows continuing my weekly trial still not bowled over by this product which surprises me as I love everything HD Brows
Eye Cream Balance Me just because I’m tired not wearing a lot of make up and my eyes need help, love the smell of this range.
Moisturiser Embryolisse makes my skin soft, supple and hydrated I recieved this in my Birchbox
Make Up Products
Foundation Dior Forever Foundation 020 just because it’s in a sachet sample so I figured I’d use it up before trying something new, a little goes a long way and it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing foundation in this thick heat.
Bronzer Arbonne Bronzing Powder love the tone of this Bronzer and the way it works with natural light
Blusher InStain long wearing powder blush in Swiss Dot, I love this sample I recieve dtgrough Birchbox it’s so cute like a little book for my make up bag, the colours perfect too.
Eye primer NYX I’m not wearing Eyeshadow just applying primer so my eyelids don’t look tired, instead brighter with a nice even tone.
Mascara Rimmel London The Max Volume Flash I wore this at the start of the week to be honest was more whatever one cane out the mascara pot this morning, this one is one of those that gets all round your lashes too… Cotton bud needed 🙂
Lip Liner Arbonne lip Liner in Ginger just because I’m applying lipstick so liners a must and this neutral goes easily with tons of colours, I love it’s precision and packaging.
Lipstick Arbonne Coral Reef this glides on, a nice shimmering coral colour lasts about 3-4 hours.
I kept it simple (still tons of products) but less of a made up look. Thoughts on today’s face? Haha 😂
So today’s make up a bit later… It’s the first day of the school holidays we had no alarm and my eldest had an regency for me to take him to get his ear pierced so delayed writing it up!
I love today’s make up, it’s not sticky, it’s not too heavy and I just feel bright, summery and fresh!
Cleansing Wipes Yes To Cucumbers soothing facial towlettes I want my skin to like these, they smell fresh and have a thicker texturebthan your standard face Wipes, I like the little handy packet too. Unfortunately my skin doesn’t like something in these, it has issues and was irritated.
Lip Balm Dr Lipp original nipple balm for lips, I was unsure of the jelly like texture of this at first but oh my its fab for lips, I put on to soak in before the whole make up procedure.
Eye cream HD Brows Eye Smoothing Serum I’m not sure on this one yet, like the wand application. Going to try for the next week.
MakeUp Products used
Primer Mac Prep & Prime, Skin Base Visage, this is beautiful creamy yet lightly whipped giving skin a smooth even tone ready for the make up
Concealer Arbonne Light this was needed today a late night plus night feeds and a lay in all the way to 8.15 woohooo I love the coverage and texture, does just what I need and smooth consistency that doesn’t crease.
Foundation Christian Dior Forever Fluid Foundation 020, a little to light but that can be fixed with Bronzer for today, it glides on smooth offering a fabulous coverage with minimal effort, it’s not too thick and doesn’t suffocate my skin in this sticky heat we have had this week.
Bronzer Christian Dior this is their old Bronzer in 030 needed to add colour to the lightness of foundation plus used to create definition perfectly.
Blusher So Susan Universal Blush same as yesterday’s I love it!
