FOTD Feat. Annabelle & Almay

Today I have a Face of the Day (FOTD) featuring Almay's Smart Shade range & new products from Annabelle! I'll also be sharing individual reviews on these products over the coming weeks, but I thought that it would be fun to give you a sneak peek at the products that I'm currently using.

FOTD Feat. Annabelle & Almay


For my base, I started off with Almay's Smart Shade Skintone Matching Makeup in 100 Light*. This product provides light to medium coverage, and I think that it matches my skin tone quite well! I used Almay's Smart Shade CC Concealer + Brightener in 100 Light Pale* to cover up any spots, and to brighten up my undereye area. On my cheeks I used Almay's Smart Shade Powder Blush in #10 Pink*, which brings a sheer wash of pink to my cheeks. This is a formula that you do have to layer because it is so sheer, but the end result is very pretty and glowy. 

Almay Smart Shade Range

On my eyes I started with Annabelle's Smoothie Eyeshadow Pencil in Mokamirage* all over my lids. This shade has a lot of depth and dimension to it, so it's one that you can easily wear on its' own. I then used Annabelle's new Stay Sharp Self Sharpening Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in Go Black* on my upper and lower lash lines. This liner is very similar to Smashbox's Always Sharp liners, so it's a great drugstore option! For my lashes, I used Annabelle's Big Show Waterproof Mascara*, which gives good definition and length. This mascara holds my curl all day long, and I haven't had any issues with flaking or smudging! The waterproof formula is a bit tricky to remove fully at the end of the night though. 

Annabelle Eye Products

On my lips I started off with Annabelle's new Stay Sharp Self Sharpening Waterproof Lipliner in Glam Red*. This liner has the same amazing packaging as the eyeliner, making it super travel friendly - no sharpener required! I filled in my lips with Annabelle's TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayon in Flirtini*, which is a gorgeous true red colour. I love this formula - it's creamy, incredibly pigmented, and long wearing! This lipliner pairs beautifully with the lipstick, and definitely helps extend the life of my lip colour!

I always love trying out new products, and I think Face of the Days are such a fun way to quickly show you a bunch of products in action! Like I said, I'll be back with individual reviews on all of these products, so you can learn a bit more about them. What products do you love from Annabelle & Almay? :)
