So as promised I did a makeup look right after re doing my hair colour! Now, the only bad thing, is that I wasn’t having a good selfie day?! What are the chances! The day I need a good selfie day I just can’t do it! So after an aching arm, a lighting and an outfit change I came out with two selfies that are passable and gives you an idea of the makeup look I created!
However, on the brighter side, the products I used were having a really photogenic day so we can look, and talk about them a little bit more!
First here’s a couple pictures of the look I created…
Now for the important part, as to what products I used and how I achieved the look! I created an image which really helped me as I was doing my makeup, and gave me a more detailed idea of the products I would be using! This being…
Now for the best part, the products!!!! (I feel excited when I write that! I just love cosmetics so so much!!)
Primer – I used No7 redness control, green in colour primer, I used this as I have a lot of red tones to my skin which I like to neutralise and cover up before I add foundation!
Concealer – I used bare minerals concealer to hide my dark circles! Fortunately for me I didn’t have to use much product, as at the minute my blemishes seem to be hiding away, I’m sure that won’t last long, but a woman can dream right?
Foundation – wise I used FIT Maybelline in 115, and I mixed it in with a little of 120 to add a bit of colour!
Bronzer – I used my favourite bronzer in the entire world for this look which is MAC in Medium Deep. This is the worlds most amazing bronzer, I’ve mentioned this in a previous post Summer Essentials! It’s just great for a natural look, but you can also build on it as much as possible!
Powder – I use the Maybelline Matte Maker powder in 20 Nude Beige it’s just a really great light powder and great for setting your foundation!
Highlighter – I used benefit high beam to give my cheekbones a little glow as I love this subtle shimmer!
As well as this I used my Maybelline FIT foundation stick in Classic Ivory 120 as a highlighter under my eyes in a triangular shape and along the bridge of my nose as it’s just the perfect shade against my foundation.
Eyes – I used a new palette I found at my local drugstore that is absolutely incredible! It’s so inexpensive and its full of natural colours for a subtle or smokey dramatic eye! The palette is called – undress me too by MUA and retails around £5 what a buy? They are surprisingly good, very pigmented and really long lasting I would highly recommend if you’re searching for a cheap palette that has great potential!
In this look I used Pro Black (090) – DIOR mascara. The brush in this mascara is great for creating a really natural look, but if you’re looking for a more dramatic look you could use this a couple of times and it doesn’t get clumps! How great it that, round of applause DIOR well done! I used an eyelash curler to just spruce my lashes up a little bit beforehand as well!
I used a Maybelline black kohl liner in Black, just to dramatise the outer corners of my eyes! These are great for a quick and easy application and are so easy to get hold of!
Eyebrows – For my brows I used two pencils, I used Maybelline brow drama pencil in dark brown, and a little of Revlon 002 Hazel to create the faded effect as I feel these two colours complement each other really well!
Lips – I used A Boutique Lip pencil in Chinese Whispers and used it to over line my lips and I like to pencil in my lips with the same colour before applying my lipstick as I feel it adds a really great depth to the look! I then added a little of the No7 Tranquil Rose 45 before adding my favourite shade ever Maybelline Honey Beige 728! This lipstick smells of heaven! I’m smelling it now, I just love it so much!
Brushes – I used a mixture of bare minerals brushes to apply my foundation and to buff it into my skin and for my bronzer, I used an Eco Tools brush to apply my powder and highlighter! I used an old Elf Eyeshadow brush for my eyeshadow and voila my face was done!
I hope this satisfied your needs and you are happy with the look created by these products! Any questions or comments just leave them for me to have a little read! I love a good comment I do!
