This FOTD was created using my current favourite eyeshadow palette - Smashbox In Bloom. This palette has a range of pretty, easy to use shades that I find will be perfect for Summer/ Autumn.
Please ignore my hair. It's at that really awkward stage of growing the fringe out. This is probably the first post in a long while that anyone's seen my eyebrows!
Sorry for the extremely blurry shot of my products used!

To prep my skin, I used Estee Lauder's New Idealist Skintone Illuminator. It's a skincare product that is designed to perfect skintone whilst providing a subtle illuminating effect.
I've had this product for two weeks and really love it. I normally use it in the morning under my daily moisturiser and it really brightens up my skin.
I've taken a couple of holidays in the last month and though I religiously apply sunscreen, I've noticed uneven pigmentation especially around the nose area. So for this FOTD, I applied Sunplay Skin Aqua Moisture BB Cream on the notice to even out my skintone.
From the Smashbox Palette, I selected a pale rose gold shade and a moss green (top left, bottom right).
Here are swatches of the two shades:
I used the rose gold shade all over the upper lip, from the lash line to the crease. I then applied black eyeliner, and brushed the moss green shadow on top of the lash line to soften the eyeliner.
I then applied a coat of mascara to the lashes to finish of my eye-makeup.
For my lips and cheeks, I chose to go bright and pink.
I used Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pale Pink on my cheeks, and love the subtle glow cream blushes give to the cheeks. It's a Bobbi Brown filled FOTD today as I'm using Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Pink on my lips.
