FOTD: simple and sleek items and explanations

Hey guys, I can't apologise enough for not posting over this week. It's been a pretty crap week to be honest, getting bad news, good news, then more bad news, I just couldn't find much motivation to do anything at all, but after spending some quality time with my boyfriend, Anakin and Obi Wan, and of course my beautiful best friend, I'm feeling a bit better :) 
So, let's find out what was on my face yesterday!

Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown
Maybelline One By One Mascara
Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Eyeliner
Elf Natural Eye Palette 
Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer
MaxFactor FaceFinity
Collection 2000 Concealer
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
MUA Shade 3 Blush
Avon Arabian Glow Shimmering Bronzer
No7 Creme Touch Face Powder
MUA Shade 11 Lipstick

My make up needed to stay put from around 11am till 10pm yesterday, but it also had to battle against the atrocious weather! I wasn't feeling too confident about wearing too much eye make up with the rain and wind, but I was desperate to try out the palette. I'm not too sure what the shades are called, and you can't see them at all, but I wore a copper colour all over my eyelid and used a darker, woodier brown on the outer corner and in the crease. I blended them well into a lighter shade which I put on my brow bone to highlight. For some reason, my eyelashes NEVER look nice. They always look flaky and horrible, can anyone give me any tips? :(
This foundation is my absolute favourite at the moment, it has a full coverage which I need and stays for ages. I tend to wear this when I have to look nice/have a long day and it never fails me. A bit of concealer is used under my eyes, down my nose and any other blemishes. I blend this in with a blush so I don't have any ugly lines! Obviously, I used the powder to keep me matte throughout the day and help my foundation stay as long as possible. 
I used this bronzer as a bit of a contour, it is quite shimmery though, but I'm on the hunt for a new one. This one works okay so long as I used a blush to blend it into as much as possible. 
The No7 powder is very light, which I personally like as I can build it up to use as a highlight on the top of my cheekbones/under eye, a bit underneath the bronzer/contour, down the center of my nose, my cupid's bow and on my chin. I love using this powder as I definitely think it gives me a more flawless look.
This lipstick is a go-to everyday lipstick, it's moisturizing and is a gorgeous colour, natural and not too glossy. For £1, you can't go wrong.

This is a great look when you're constantly on the run, all I had to do was top up on my powder on my nose and my lipstick. This isn't a very 'in' look considering the season, but you can always change it with simple eyes and berry lipstick. 

Sorry again for the lack of blogging, I really do feel awful, I don't want to lose my audience as blogging gives me such a good confidence boost. 
Take care, guys.
