Face Friday: Holyhead Face

ff-holyhead-thHaving been to Holyhead during the week, and knowing it would be a long day, I was looking for three things from my makeup for the day – that it would be simple to do (complicated and 5am do not mix), that it would look good, and that it would last. I think I got the right combination with this face.



  • Primer: Gosh – Velvet Touch Line Perfector
  • Foundation: Maybelline – Superstay 24 hour foundation (020 – Cameo)
  • Blush: New York Color – Cheek Glow Blush (649 – Prospect Park Rose)
  • Powder: Maybelline – Fit Me Powder (125 – Nude Beige)


  • Brows: Maybelline – Brow Drama (Medium Brown)
  • Shadow: Wet n Wild – Coloricon Eyeshadow Trio (E380B – Walking On Eggshells)
  • Liner: Wet n Wild – Coloricon Eyeliner Pencil (E655 – Charcoal)
  • Mascara: Lancome – Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara (01 – Black)


  • Lipstick: Bourjois – Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick (05 – Ole Flamingo)


  • Blank Canvas – F20 – Foundation
  • Real Techniques – Buffing Brush – Blush
  • Ecotools – Powder Brush – Powder
  • Ecotools – Shadow Brush – Shadow (lid & browbone)
  • Real Techniques – Essential Crease Brush – Shadow (crease)

I can safely say that the look was long lasting, having lasted more than 18 hours with only minimal touch-ups. It was easy to do, which was great at 5am, and looked fresh and well put together, just what I wanted from the look.

Note: It must be said that this is a recreation of the look, not the look itself, again going back to the 5am thing.
