My Face #1

I rarely do these "what's on my face" style posts. Day-to-day I don't really wear much make-up and, when I have myself properly made-up, I tend to be legging it out the door so, don't have time to sit down and get a decent shot. However, I do love to see them on other blogs so, I'll be making more of an effort to show my face on here, assuming it's of interest!

Today's post will be on my everyday make-up. These are the products I have been reaching for consistently over the past few months and which I really rate highly. Please do bear in mind that I don't use all of these products everyday, usually just various combinations. However, if I'm heading out after work or going shopping at the weekend, I'll usually wear this make-up; a neutral eye paired with a coral-ish lip.

If you've been reading VivaAdonis for any length of time now, you'll know that I am rather obsessive about make-up brushes and practically collect them! However, I have begun to find myself reaching for the same brushes time after time so, these are the tools which I believe are really worth having in your collection!
