FOTD: Everyday Makeup Products + New Blog Design

It has come to my attention that  I've never ever posted a FOTD post before, so I thought it was about time I do one now! As you can see I've also changed my blog design to a more minimalistic, simple and clean layout. 

I decided that the new year should bring in some changes and that's exactly what I've done. I've not only changed my blog design, but I've decided to add more variety to my blog posts by doing more FOTD's and maybe some fashion posts(?). Please let me know if you like the new design and what other posts you would like to see from me this year!

Although some of these products are switched out with other products (e.g. blush & lip colour) I pretty much use everything else on a daily basis. These products have been my go-to products for the steamy hot summer weather - especially the L'Oreal Foundation which I've completely fallen in love with (would anyone like a review?). My Everyday Makeup Routine usually takes about 20-30min to apply as I often get distracted by watching YouTube videos/other tv shows. 

Oh and excuse the appearance of my MAC Mineralise Skin Finish - I dropped it a few months ago and a large chunk of product fell out, but luckily most of it stayed intact.

  3. Gorgeous look Dawn! Don't worry about the state of that powder, I prefer seeing a well loved product over one that looks brand new :P I love that L'oreal foundation! It's so gorgeous on the skin :)

  12. Wow, you applied your eyelashes flawlessly! I would never know those weren't your real lashes.

  15. Love the new look blog - look forward to some new posts too :) you look gorgeous, love the lip colour x

  16. Beautiful FOTD! I hate it when I drop products and big chunks break off, lucky it was not too bad. I would love to see some more FOTDs and perhaps fashion posts too. x

  17. I love your new layout. It looks great! (:
    I also love that garnier rollerball. It's saved me so many mornings. haha.
