Hi guys today I had a bit of spare time before I had to be in Uni so I decided to play around with some of my makeup and I made a pretty look which I wanted to share with you all. I hope you like it!
Step 1 – Base: I started off using my L’oreal infallible primer all over my skin. I then went in with my Rimmel wake me up concealer under my eyes. I know you’re typically meant to put concealer on over foundation, but I like to use this Rimmel one under my foundation on my dark circles to conceal them a little more – They need it!
After this I applied Estee Lauder double wear with a foundation brush. I thought about using a drugstore foundation but in the end I went with my EL one because I wanted my look to be a little more flawless. You can use any foundation if re creating this look though.
Step 2 – Eyes: I first did my brows using the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade. I used the Morphe s25 with this. To create my eyeshadow look, I used the NYX Beauty school dropout palette, which is an amazing palette which a lot of lovely colours. First I used my Morphe s27 brush and took the pinky nude shade labelled 1 on the picture above all over my lid, this evened out the colour of my lids and created the perfect base. Next, using the same brush, I used the deep mauve shimmer (2) in my outer V and brought this up into my crease. I blended this out using my brush. Then I took my Morphe s12 and added a little of the purpley taupe colour (3) over what I had just done and took it further into the crease. I then used my s27 brush again to blend all this together. Once I was happy with this, I took my Morphe s30 brush and packed the dusty pink shimmer (4) shade all over my lid. Again, I blended everything together with the s27. Then, using my s30 again, I put a little of the deep purple shade (5) – which kinda looks a bit reddish on the picture, but isn’t in real life – on the edge of the brush and applied it to my lower lash line, gently smoking it out. Finally I used the Morphe s21 with the white shade (6) to highlight my brow bone.
Once I was happy with my shadow, I used the Rimmel liquid liner to create a small wing and then added my Eyeronic lashes in the style Jasmine. I adore these lashes, they are new and definitely worth checking out! They can be used up to 25 times and are so reasonably priced. I used the Duo lash glue to apply these. I then added MAC 3D extreme dimension mascara on my lower lash line.
Step 3 – The rest: I added collection lasting perfection concealer under my eyes to highlight and to conceal those awful shadows a bit more. It also helped clean up any fall out from the shadows.
I lightly dusted Rimmel stay matte powder all over my face to set it. Then taking the NYX Beauty school dropout palette again, I used the lightest contour shade to contour/bronze (labelled 7 on the picture). I used the Morphe s13. Then I added the blush (8) with my real techniques blush brush. Finally, using s27 I using the gorgeous pale pink highlight (9) to highlight my cheek bone, nose, cupids bow and inner corner of my eye. I LOVE this highlight, it’s stunning. I wish it came through better on the picture of the palette.
I added Lime Crime velvetines liquid lipstick in the shade Faded. This is a new one for me and I adore it. The dusty lilac colour works perfectly with my pale skin and it stays on all day.
That’s it!! I hope you like this makeup look.
