Face Of The Day


Hi Everyone,

Today I am doing my second Face Of The Day post so that I can share with you my first EVER mineral foundation (yes, I know, about time!!). This is a new purchase for me but I'm already a huge fan- the powder formula is so silky on my skin and just last and lasts. 

I am using the ELF Personal Blend Mineral Foundation which I bought as part of my recent ELF haul. I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of the packaging- the product comes with four different shades of foundation which you are meant to mix to find your 'personal blend'. Unfortunately, this makes it quite difficult to mix the exact same shade every time, and the powder does not come out as easily as I would like. Nevertheless, I still really like the product itself, and it is a fraction of the price of the other big mineral foundation brands.

On my face today I am wearing:

Prep:

Face:

Brow:
The usual - GOSH Eye Brow Kit

Cheeks:
Too Faced The Bronzed and The Beautiful Palette (Chocolate Soleil to Bronze and Powdered Sun to highlight)

Eyes:

Lips:
YSL Glossy Stain in 19 - Beige Aquarelle

I used my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush for buffing in the mineral powder, which made application really smooth and simple. The rest of my make-up I tried to keep relatively neutral so as not to detract from the nice, fresh-faced look of the mineral foundation.

And that's my face of the day, I hope you like it! Have any of you tried the ELF Personal Blend Foundation?

  1. so pretty! the foundation looks great on your skin, but it is interesting you'd have to mix the powders each time you want to use the product?

    1. Thank you! I know that is the one thing I'm not keen on about this foundation, it is a bit messy!
