Now, I'm not a beauty buff by all means but I do like to ponder over the odd cosmetics counter from time to time, especially when I accidentally find myself stumbling into a department store... or three. Whilst rummaging through my makeup collection the other day, I came across a wicker basket full of once loved palettes and lip products temporarily abandoned for its newer and shinier cousins.
I vowed to put them to use more often which resulted in the snaps above. After a brief stint of reviewing products and posting amateur makeup tutorials on YouTube a few years ago, I decided that beauty blogging just wasn't for me and felt a little out of my depths if I'm perfectly honest! I enjoyed other bloggers' posts and videos though and particularly loved the 'FOTD' feature so thought I'd gingerly step my toes back into the beauty waters again and start up 'A Dressed Up Face' - a series of snaps practising a few different looks from an everyday smoky eye, dramatic liner to berry lips for autumn/winter. Getting experimental here, folks!
