I did this look a couple of weeks back, took all the pictures, wrote all the notes of what I used etc and then I forgot about it! So I thought I’d post it today because I actually love the look and want to share it with you.
Step one – Base: Recently, I’ve been using the Nivea Soft moisturiser (£4.29) to prime rather than an actual primer as my skins been dry so my usual silicone based primer just hasn’t been sitting nicely on my skin. Once the moisturiser had sunk in, I went in with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (£32.50) in the shade Cool Bone, on a Real Techniques buffer brush.
Step two – Eyes: First I drew my eyebrows on with the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade (£15) using a Morphe s25 brush. I set this with the Rimmel brow this way brow gel (£4.49). I took the Morphe Bronzed Mocha Palette (£19) and applied the shade labelled 1A all over the lid using a Morphe s27 brush. Next mixed the shades 2A and 5C and applied it in my crease. I used the same Morphe s27 brush for this. Next I took 3D on my finger and applied it all over my lid. I added 2A along my lower lash line on a pencil brush. Finally I took 5E and applied it to the outer v of my eye, including on the lower lash line on a Morphe s12 brush.
Once this was done I curled my eyelashes and added a mixture of L’oreal Miss Baby Roll waterproof mascara (£7.99) and Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara (£8.99).
Step three – Finishing: Using a Real Techniques flat foundation brush I applied Mac Pro longwear concealer (£18) under my eyes and on any blemishes. I chose not to set my face with powder today as I don’t usually need it with this foundation and concealer combo.
I took the L’oreal Bronze Duo Blonde Harmony bronzer (£10.99) and bronzed up my face using a Morphe s13 brush. I added the Milani baked blush in luminoso on a Real Techniques contour brush. I applied the Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl illuminator (£21) in the shade charming pink. I used a Morphe s26 brush.
Finally, I went with a bold lip and applied the Mac Flat Out Fabulous retro matte lipstick.
What do you think of the finished look?
