FOTD - Using only samples/freebies!

Hi everyone,
Today's FOTD post is a little different from normal.
I decided today to route out all my samples/freebies of make up and then decided to see if I could create a full face of make up using what I had. 

Here are all the samples and freebies that I have...

And this is the look I created...

The products I used...
- Smashbox Photo Finish Luminizing Primer
- YSl Touche Eclat Foundation Sample in B50
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Urban Decay Stardust Eyeshadow in Retrograde
- 17 Perfect Definition Eye Liner in Black
- No7 Eyeshadow in Antique Rose - Used as blush
- No7 Intense Volume Mascara
- Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara
- Urban Decay Lip Junkie in Naked

So yeah, I really enjoyed trying to use all the little bits and pieces I have floating around to create a full look. Very satisfying. :)

Thanks for reading,


  1. Wow, where'd you manage to get so many freebies/samples?! I'm rubbish at getting them haha. Your 'look' looks lovely :)


    1. I got some free with purchases, some with magazines and applied for samples of things online. :) Thank you :) I have a couple of posts called 'This week's freebies!' that have some stuff you can request free samples of and the links to where to apply for them :) xxx

  2. This is such a cool post! Wow! I've never thought of doing that before! It just shows you how little you need to spend to create a makeup look!

    1. Thank you :) It made me rediscover the urban decay eyeshadow that I never reach for :) xx

  3. Oooooh this is a fab idea Jess! I wonder what I could come up with? :) x
