Back to Work FOTD

Today was my first day back at work since finishing up before Christmas. I had a 4.48am start, so please excuse the slightly gormless look, but it was sooo early!

I wanted to keep it natural and uncomplicated so just whacked a Benefit cream shadow over my lids & a slick of mascara & I was done. I was also trying out my new Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, which I have quickly fallen in love with!


I'm going to try do more of these, so need to get a bit of variety into my work makeup!

  9. Beautiful look. Wish I looked that good at 9.00am let alone 4.48am. Still you have age on your side ;-) 2nd request for shade name please.
    Thanks for this. Jan

  11. ladies, thank you - I will get a big head!

    the shade is '2W1 Sand'

    I found a very pale shade, but it seemed very chalky. I thought the shade ranges were quite good, but not sure about their categories. I actually though the shade i bought was quite yellow, which i'd categorise as 'cool neutral' the same as mac does, but the fact it has a W in the name suggests they think it's warm. V confusing. but I'm not a big believer in cool/warm - go for what suits your skin!
