FOTN and Outfit

Project clear skin has been going immensely well, my skin is looking better for not wearing foundation or tinted moisturiser on a daily basis, I am not pulling and tugging at my skin every night to get the "slap" off. I feel much better for it! The honey has been amazing on my skin, I don't actually feel uncomfortable not wearing makeup anymore, the texture and scars are improving drastically - I have had no new spots. I also don't need to over moisturise my skin anymore as the honey is making it feel hydrated - therefore it's preventing me from getting tiny pimples on my cheeks.

I am currently using Rowse pure honey in a squeeze tub - no mess!

I must also stress that I have been on a SUPER healthy diet and exercising regularly, so basically all of these changes have had a positive impact!

Last night I went out as it was a special night, and I needed "smokey eyes", I refused to go out without my "slap" :) FYI: These photos were taken when we got back home!



Here's what I wore on my face:

BB Tinted moisturiser - Only a teeny tiny bit, usually I would use 3X this amount!
Boing concealer only under the eyes.
Mac msf natural applied with 187 brush.
Nars Laguna applied with 187 brush.
Nars Sertao as blush.

I would never normally use a 187 to apply my msf or Laguna, but I wanted a light application for a natural look. I would usually use my 134, I have to say I was impressed, as it didn't look "too much", I will be pulling this trick more often!




On my eyes I wore:

All shadows from Urban Decay book of shadows!

Mayhem all over the lid and lower lashline, Perversion in the crease and Grifter on inner corners. (Mayhem is my favourite colour from the book of shadows)

Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero, on upper and lower lashline and Mac Zoomlash mascara.




On the lips I wore, Gosh Darling lipstick, and a dab of Too faced lip injection extreme teamed with L'oreal Cappuccino lipliner.



And finally here's what I wore....




Dress/top: Zara
Leggings: New Look
Belt: Armani Exchange
Shoes: New Look
Clutch: Vintage
Earrings: DP


My outfit was not too summery as we are now having a phase of "crap" weather. I felt really comfortable in what i was wearing, my figure feels much more "me" as opposed to the uncomfortable bloated feeling I had a few weeks ago, please note: I am not on some crazy diet, but I have eliminated all junk and am eating 3 good meals and healthy snacks everyday. I haven't actually weighed myself yet but my clothes aren't as tight anymore which is highly satisfying! xXx

You go girl! It's surprising how much you actually feel better for just cutting out the crap from your diet!

I'm trying my best to do the same - I feel so bloated right now and my skin isn't behaving itself at all.

you = beautiful!!

I love honey mask (does wonders)
I've been laying low using foundation as well, because it does take a tall on the skin.

adorable outfit (did a similar look last w/ *short sleeves and no belt*).

first of all. I love this ensemble and purple looks great on you. I love that color and the dangling is very pretty ! I have that dress in black and now I wished I got the purple too. I like the belt and I think I have to find a nice belt.thanks for reminding me. your makeup is a work of art. you are simply amazing ! xoxo

P.S. I'm glad I'm not the only one trying to be in shape right now. I've been going to the gym and trying to lose some weight.Goodluck to us. your figure is very good though.

Naomi Alecia said...

Honey masks are awesome because they are hydrating like you said but also because it has anti-bacterial properties which could be why you're also noticing a change in your skin.

The outfit you wore is fab and you look so beautiful and happy.

Aleksis said...

I have to say....your skin looks the best here that I've seen so you must be doing something right! That outfit is sooo cute!
