FOTD with NicNic's Gifts

Today's look was made using a couple of items from the gorgeous parcel Nicola gave me (original post here).

The Shiseido Integrate Gracy Eyebrow Pencil she sent me has made it to one of my most treasured beauty products. It's a perfect match for the brows, making my eyebrows looks lovely and thick, and most importantly of all - natural.

On my cheeks, I used a tiny dab of the Canmake cream blush in 11, also from Nicola.

This is a stunning pink shade...

...which on my cheeks looks soft and rosy. I kept my lips natural looking with a tinted lip balm.

A group photo of the products used in this look:

Products Used:

Laura Mercier Cake Liner in Black Ebony
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in Beach Honey
Benefit eye Bright
Clarins Instant Definition Mascara
Shiseido Integrate Gracy Eyebrow Pencil in 963
Canmake Cream Cheek in 11 Heavenly Heart
Une Sheer Lips Balm in S03

As I can never get a thin enough line with my gel liner, I've recently switched to cake liners to tightline my eyes. I find tightlining gives a more natural eye.

I almost forgot to mention, I used applied beloved Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate on my skin to give a subtle glow. I didn't mention it in the product list above as its a skincare item.

I've received an amazing response of my giveaway. Thanks to those of you who have entered. If you haven't already entered my giveaway, you can find it here.
