Natural (ish) Face Of The Day !

I've finally acquired some samples of natural cosmetic brand INIKA as well as a new natural blush and decided to try them out this morning.
While I was applying them I suddenly though all you lovelies might be interested in seeing the finished result in a 'Face of the Day' post.
Today's face is a mixture of natural and normal makeup, my transition across to natural make up is still a work in progress so I do still have to use conventional make up to fill the gaps where I haven't found a suitable replacement yet.

So that's everything I used this morning from cleansing to the final slick of lipstick!
It's the first time I've used the INIKA and Studio78 blush, what do you think to them?
I will do a proper review as always of them but I was happy with my 'face of slap' today' ~ I'm only doing the housework and writing this post, so don't need to look all that glamorous!
I might make this a regular post ~  what do you, my lovely readers think?
Do you like to see products actually on a 'face' or are swatches on body parts enough haha!

  3. This looks great on you, I swatched the studio 78 blush and thought they were great, I have far too much blush though :(

  4. Thanks chick :-) xx I'm really liking the studio 78 blush so far will use it a bit more though before making final decision :-)
    I've got far too many foundations :-( must none of them natural either lol must make an effort to use them all up ! Xxxxx

  7. You look lovely! The lipstick is a gorgeous shade on you :-) I prefer seeing peoples makeup on their face, swatches are good too but I can never envisage the transition from arm to face lol xx

  8. Thankyou Dana ! I really love the dr haushka pink lipstick I've had it a year now and it's still going strong lasts well on the lips too :-)
    I know what you mean about not able to picture swatches actually on, I'll keep up face of the day I think - it was more difficult than I thought taking a photo my face at arms length though it took 45 photos to get the three ok ones lol! Thank god for digital cameras xxxxxx
