So I had a date today…..

…. With Tesco!  So what I hear you all sigh, but the difference is I refuse to consider it as only a trip to Tesco, and I got the war paint out, signature neck scarf and made as much effort in my appearance for my trip to Tesco as I intend to do every day of my life from now on in!

Since I have taken this approach to life, I have to confess to almost feeling naked without my slap on, and I absolutely have to fill in my eyebrows if nothing else!  I have even become obsessed with paying far too much attention to other peoples eyebrows now also (yes, I am slightly mad).

To top it off, it wasn’t just your average trip to Tesco, the icing on the cake was a very nice gentleman bringing to my attention that I had a flat tyre…. Now, to most ladies, panic would now set in I am sure, but not for me.  Here I was, dolled up to the nines (well not really, but looking a bit better than your average Tesco visitor – in my bias opinion), and I get out my mini compressor and pump up my own tyre.  Now how is that for feminism!

So, here are a couple of head shots of me today, and I will give you some incite into how I achieved this look (apologies for the obvious lighting differences, one taken inside, one obviously outside).


So, today’s look has been brought to you by:

Sunglasses – Prescription “Givency” from Dolland & Aitchison circa 2006

Scarf – Courtesy of a friend (thank you Paula B x)

Now the make-up:

Face – Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer; Anthony Braden Liquid Mineral Foundation (Beige); Mineral Powder (Fair 2), Mineral Veil & Blush all from Bare Face Minerals via eBay.

Eyes – Rimmel Pro Eyebrow Pencil (Hazel); concealer to highlight the brows (any will do); Avon Super Extend Liquid Eyeliner (Black); Avon Quad Eyeshadow (Purple Haze, but I only used the dark grey colour); Bronzer from Bare Face Minerals (as above); Mascara (I use a variation of around 3 all in black)

Lips – Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner (Red Diva); Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate (Moss) in shade 107

BIG Love
