Face Of The Day - FOTD

20 years ago we were heading out to visit some family friends when my dad (a keen photographer) noticed the gorgeous blossom on one of our trees and stood me in front of it for a photograph. He loved that photo of me, aged 13, so much that he had it enlarged and it has been on display ever since.

Yesterday, I had a phone call from my dad asking me to come over, the tree looked similar to that day 20 years before and he wanted to take another photograph of me standing in front of it.

Now aged 33 I am looking forward to comparing the two pictures :-)

As a 13 year old I was fresh faced with not an ounce of make up on,  a major difference will be that yesterday's photograph will have me wearing it...

Here is a picture of me as I left my house. At the moment I am really loving strong lip colours.

Unfortunately my hay-fever has set in and I think I have rubbed my eyes a little too much (evidence is the bags under my eyes)

What I am wearing - 

Clinique Redness Solutions Makeup
FYF Cheeky Blush in Country Fresh
Estee Lauder Signature Hydra Lustre Lipstick in Apricot Sun
No7 Intense Volume Waterproof Mascara in black
L'Oreal Paris Colour Appeal Eye Shadow  in Smoky Beige  - This is by far my favourite taupe base colour ever - sadly my dad got this for me when he was in America :-(
L'Oreal Paris Chrome Intensity Eye Shadow in Cacao Mania 
Clinique Cream Shaper Eye Liner in Chocolate Lustre
