My first FOTD (and OOTD)!!

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are all having a splendid week! Today I have decided to do my first official Face of The Day post. I see so many of these cropping up on Bloglovin' and I am just so nosey I love to read about what products people have been using. I must admit that this is not always a good thing, as I am the queen of impulse-buying and as soon as I read about the next 'miracle' product I HAVE to go out and get it- like, RIGHT NOW. This is very dangerous when you're a blogger and spend pretty much every spare minute reading about new products- and it's left me quite spectacularly out of pocket recently!
Anyway, enough of my rambling and on to my face of the day. The reason I chose today for my first FOTD post was mainly to show off my amazing new 'The Bronzed & The Beautiful' palette from Too Faced, which I got yesterday. As if to prove my earlier point, I borrowed the same palette off my friend on Saturday night before we went on a night out, and fell so instantly in love with it that I immediately ordered one for myself the next morning!

My make-up for today is:
Bliss Peeling Groovy Facial Serum
GOSH Eyebrow Palette (and a bit of Vaseline to set!)
Too Faced The Bronzed & The Beautiful Palette (which I bought from ASOS) - today I used Chocolate Soleil and Powdered Sun
Urban Decay Naked Palette using colours Virgin up to brow line, Toasted over the lid and Sin in inner corner
Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Black (on my lide and under my lower lashes)
The brushes I used were Real Techniques Stippling Brush for foundation, Real Techniques Buffing Brush for bronzer along my forehead and jawline (from the Core Collection), MAC 168 Large Angled Contour Brush for contouring, MAC 129 Powder/ Blush Brush for blusher, Real Techniques Blush Brush for highlighting. For my eyeshadow I used the brush included in the Naked Palette.
I hope you like my Face of The Day! I was pleased with the fresh-faced glow that it gave me without being too OTT for work. I did my hair in a casual side bun to finish the look, but that was more for convenience than anything!
I also thought I'd include a snap of my Outfit of the Day, so that you could see the complete look. I was feeling the Summer vibe for work this morning, and I am wearing H&M White Skinny Jeans (£9.99!), ASOS Gold Sandal (from last Summer), Topshop Strappy Cami in Nude (£18) and River Island Gold Kimono Cardigan (£25). The watch is a Michael Kors look-a-like from M&S, and the necklace is an ancient one from Topshop. Ring was an 18th birthday present (many moons ago now!).

So, there you have it- this was today's look! I hope you enjoyed reading my post, and feel free to leave me a comment below. I will do a proper review of my Too Faced palette in the enxt few days.
On a separate note, I am delighted to have reached 50 followers on my Bloglovin' account! This is a huge milestone for me and means so much, so thanks to everyone who follows. I have got plans underway to do my first giveaway to mark the occasion- watch this space!!
