Today’s post is one I have been very excited for. I spent a lot of time deciding on what makeup look to do but I have decided just to do a casual glam look. I hope you all enjoy this look and I really enjoyed creating it!
Products I used
I always do my eye makeup first so I started with my brows and drawed the shape of my brows by a line on the top and bottom and then just blended inwards. I made them a bit bolder tha usual to give them a bolder look as you can get away with it more in winter.
For my eyes I started by priming them with concealer and added powder over. For my crease I used ‘Tease’ from Naked 2 and deeply worked that into to my outer crease. As I wanted the look to have a big shimmer on my eyes I used my color tattoo and applied this with my finger all on my eye up to my crease. I gave a fair coat on each eye however added a bit more on the center of my eye with a brush to intensify the shimmer. To blend out the edges I took ‘Suspect’ from Naked 2 and just lightly used this around my crease very lightly. Too finish off my eye makeup I took my Mary Lou Highligter in the inner corners of my eyes so I looked bright and awake.
Moving on to my face I first primed my skin and I used my 3 way highligher to do this as it gives a really glowy look under my foundation and is the perfect base. I then applied my foundation with my foundation brush as I wanted it full coverage so I didn’t use my beauty blender for this look (shock horror)!
I then used my concealer and drew on a big triangle under both of my eyes and on my nose, chin and forehead to highlight. And then took my Collection concealer on any small imperfections on my skin. Before my powder I used my contour kit to scuplt out under my cheekbones, I only did this lightly as I didn’t want it too heavy. To set this all in place I used my Stay Matte powder all over my face and made sure my under eyes were completely set.
After my base I used my Rimmel bronzer to bronze up my cheekbnes and forehead which I only did with a light hand. To clean this up I took my NYX powder to bake under my bronzer, I applied this with my small beauty blender and after a couple of minutes and brushed it away. For my highlight, I used my all time favourite which is the Mary Lou, I took this on the top of my cheekbones and on my nose and cupids bow. To add some more colour, I really lightly took my blush to the apples of my cheeks.
To finish the look I took my lip liner to line my lips and then took Brave all over my lips which I love!
That’s the finished look! It’s so easy and I really like the way it looks.
