FOTD: First Day At Work + New Job

Hi everyone!

I’ve got some very exciting news to report – I’ve got a job! After more than a year and over 50 applications I have been lucky enough to be given a chance. I’m working in a pharmacy five days a week (Monday to Friday) for roughly five hours a day. At this stage the job is fixed term for two months but it’s still good experience and something to add to my CV.

I don’t think working should affect blogging too much, I’ll still be using the weekend to write upcoming content and trying to post three times a week.

Seeing as today was my first day at work I thought I’d do a FOTD post. I haven’t done one of these in a while and it might give you inspiration for your work makeup!

FOTD MakeupProducts used and featured above:

1. Rimmel Lasting Finish Fix & Perfect Primer

This primer combined with my Rimmel foundation is a match made in heaven. I use about the size of a pea and dab it onto my face before massaging it in with fast, fluid motions. When I wear primer I find my makeup does hold better.

2. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in 081 Fair Ivory

I am in LOVE with this foundation! I think the colour matches my skin tone extremely well and it does seem to give a traceless coverage as it says on the bottle. The foundation is very light on my skin and doesn’t feel like I’m wearing anything on my face.

3. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – 15 Fair

I took a wee risk using this for the first time today but luckily it paid off. This shade is a really good match for my skin and the product feels light and airy while also providing coverage. The doe foot applicator is easy to use and I simply blend the concealer in with my finger.

4. Thin Lizzy 6 in 1 Professional Powder – Light

This versatile compact can be used as a blusher, bronzer, eye shadow, face framer, contour and lip colour. I use this over my face after I’ve applied my concealer and foundation to give my skin a healthy glow.

5. Chi Chi Billion Dollar Wallet Heiress Palette

I used a white shade as a primer all over my lid and a black glittery shade to blend with the white and create a subtle smoky eye. This helps to give my eyes slightly more definition.

6. Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara

This is a great day time mascara as it coats your lashes well and it allows you to apply as much as you want to get the desired effect. The brush is quite small which makes it easy to get into each individual lash. The mascara doesn’t clump or smudge and stays put all day which is good for work.

7. MAC Syrup

Syrup is the perfect everyday lipstick and it’s such an easy colour to wear. It’s a lustre finish so won’t dry out your lips. I have been reaching for this colour pretty much everyday since I bought it a week and a half ago.

Of course, no FOTD post is complete without showing you the finished look!


Be sure to let me know what you thought of this look and if you have a go-to work look of your own!
