Hi guys – Hope you’re all well! I know my blog has been a bit quiet lately, and that is mainly due to getting a new job up in London which I am absolutely loving! I am now in the crazy/interesting/fascinating world of advertising and marketing for a brilliant company and I am just so happy. Now that I’m getting settled with the daily commute and have sorted out a schedule for my blog, there will be regular posts! I will be aiming for two a week 🙂
So today’s makeup tutorial isn’t one of my regular ones – This is more of a review as most products I have used are first impressions. I just thought it would be fun to create a look at the same time, which I hope you enjoy!
The look I wanted to create was a really brightening, dewey look. One that makes you look like you are ‘glowing from within’.
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Fatigue Blur Primer (Warm Apricot) – I really enjoyed this primer. It’s more of a moisturising primer but just makes your skin feel incredibly soft and it smells lovely, which is a bonus!
Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation – If you are a regular reader of my blog then you will know this is one of my most used foundations. It gives a beautiful natural look and suited the look brilliantly.
Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer – This is a bloggers’ favourite. I had been meaning to try this out for god knows how long, and I finally got around to it! I couldn’t recommend this enough – It’s pigmented, easy to blend and comes in extremely practical packaging for application and travel.
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder – Another of my ‘holy grails’ – I never really venture away from this powder as I know it works and it’s affordable! I only applied this on my t zone as I wanted my cheeks to glow.
Smashbox Shape Matters Palette – I recently purchased this palette for half price (£30) in Boots as it was their Star Gift, and boy am I pleased I did! This product has multiple uses; brows, face and eyes. I used the ‘Taupe’ shade for my eyebrows, as well as the bronzer, contour and highlight for my face. It is extremely pigmented – I would highly recommend, especially if you can find it for a bargain like I did!
Stila In The Garden Palette – This palette is very unique; it consists of a mixture of shimmers and mattes, in shades such as olive tones, bronze tones, and more dramatic shades such as a purple and a blue. I started with the shade Chinois (Matte white) all over the eye, followed by Nectar (matte beige) in the crease to help with blending. I then applied Honey (Shimmery gold/copper) onto the lid, and Sage (light shimmery green) through the crease. Lastly, I finished with Moss (Dark shimmery olive green) through the crease and also on the bottom lash line. This palette really did impress me with it’s beautiful easy to blend shades which looked stunning on the eyes.
Benefit Rollerlash – I actually ended up having to use this mascara as it was annoyingly the only one I brought with me on holiday! It is one of my most used but I wished I could have tried a new mascara for this look.
Nivea Lip Balm – I didn’t want to take the focus away from the dramatic eyes and due to being on holiday my lips were fairly dry, so therefore I just applied some of my Nivea Lip Balm in Raspberry.
And here is the final look!
