Hi everyone! How are you all feeling today? I’ve been super busy sorting Christmas out lately, I’m so excited but there is so much to do before the big day arrives. Today though, I am going to share with you a full glam makeup look that I wore for drinks with my boyfriend & some friends. I’m such a pink/purple lover, and they’re my fave shades to wear on the eyes, so I thought I’d write a step by step guide on how to re create this look. It’s quite a dramatic look which is perfect for this time of the year. Hope you enjoy!
Step One – Base: To prime I used the Too Faced Hangover primer (£26). I recently spoke about this one in my ‘Paint The World Pink set’ review post, so check that one out for more detail. But I am loving this primer for a smooth hydrated base! I then applied Kat Von D Lock it foundation (£28) with a real techniques beauty sponge. I’ve recently fallen back in love with this foundation and tend to choose it for full glam looks.
Step Two – Eyes: First I filled in my brows using the Benefit Brow Zings palette (£27) as usual. I then applied Collection Lasting Perfection concealer (£4.19) on my eyelids to prep them for eyeshadow.
I used two palettes for this look, both from Revolution (£5 each): the Reloaded Provocative & the Reloaded Newtrals 3. I took the cream shade in one of the palettes and set the concealer on my eyelid with it. Then on a Morphe s21 brush, I packed on the shade labelled 1 on the inner portion of my eyelid. I did the same with shades 2, 3 and 4 going across my eyelid, packing on lots of pigment each time. I went over the shades packing and buffing, until I was happy with the gradient blend! For a full glam look it is very easy, although it is time consuming as you have to go back over the shades blending and adding pigment until you are happy with the look.
I applied a thin line and tiny wing using the Benefit Roller Liner (£18.50), added some Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara (£8.99) then applied Eyeronic false lashes in the style Elsa (Discontinued).
On my lower lash line, I mirrored the eyeshadow look I did on my eyelid.
Step Three – Finishing: I used some micellar water to remove fall out from the eyeshadow under my eyes. After this, I used a small amount of the Becca Under Eye Brightening corrector (£21) under my eyes, using my finger to apply. When I first got this, I really didn’t like it, but now I am starting to figure out how best to use it I am beginning to like it a bit more, but it’s really important to only use a tiny amount. I used the Too Faced Born This Way concealer (£25) on top of the Becca product under the eyes, and a little on the chin, nose & forehead too. I blended this out with my beauty sponge. I set my face using the Too Faced Born This Way loose setting powder (£22) on a Real Techniques contour brush.
I then used the Zoeva Contour Spectrum palette (£17) to contour and bronze my face – I used a Morphe s13 for this. For blush I took the Clinique Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop (£18) on a Wet n Wild blush brush. To highlight I used a few of the lighter shades in the Revolution x Soph highlight palette (£8) on the high points of my face. For this I used a new brush in my collection; a Morphe m500.
To complete the look I added Mac Honeylove lipstick (£17.50) and Too Faced Lip Injection Extereme lip gloss (£22).
That’s the completed full glam look! What do you think? Let me know below!
