Hey everyone, I hope you’re all well! Today I want to share with you my current ‘go to’ easy glam makeup look. I haven’t posted a makeup look/tutorial here on my blog since May when I shared 2 Looks Using The Morphe x James Charles Mini Palette + Review, so I wanted to update you all on what kind of looks and products I’ve been going for lately.
Step One – Eyes: I first used Collection Lasting Perfection concealer (£4.19) on my eye lids to prep for eye shadow, I blended this out with a Real Techniques brush. I know Collection have recently changed the packaging of this concealer; I’m unsure if the formula has changed too or not. I’m currently still using an old one (& have an old back up too). I kept the eyeshadow incredibly simple. Using a Morphe s27 eyeshadow brush I applied a cream shade all over the lid, and then buffed a light brown shade into my crease. Both shadows came from the Morphe Bronzed Mocha palette (which looks as if it may have been discontinued?!), however any shadows would easily work.
I used Benefit Roller Liner (£19.50) to create a wing, which is the statement of this glam look. Only recently have I gotten back into liquid eyeliner, I now wear it pretty much every day! I love this Benefit eyeliner, I have had it quite a while now & it hasn’t dried up at all! I’ll probably need to repurchase soon though.
I opted for Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (£8.99), and also added some Eyeronic Lashes in the style Aurora. Unfortunately this brand doesn’t exist anymore, which is super sad as they made my fave lashes… but I still have quite a few pairs left as I bulk bought them!
I’ve recently had HD brows for the first ever time (I love them!) so I didn’t do much to my eyebrows. I did however use the new Benefit Brow Microfilling Pen (£22.50) to fill them in a little bit! I’m loving this pen at the moment, however I think it would maybe be a pain to use this to completely fill in my brow if I hadn’t just had HD brows.
Step Two – Base: To prime I used the ARK Skincare Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer (£36). SPF is so important even when it isn’t super sunny, & since my skin is kind of dry lately I’ve been reaching for a moisturising one like this. For foundation I went for Clinique Beyond Perfecting (£28.50), I’ve definitely fell more and more in love with this one the more I’ve used it – it is full coverage but gives a healthy skin look finish. Most full coverage foundations I’ve used have been more matte and drying; this one looks flawless and doesn’t dry my skin out. I used the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection brush (£36) to buff this out, which is expensive but in my opinion it’s so worth it as it’s really upped my makeup game!
I used the Too Faced Born This Way Concealer (£25) in two shades both to conceal & contour. I don’t know how I ever lived without this concealer – it’s now a ride or die! I used a Real Techniques beauty sponge for this.
I then set the concealed areas with Too Faced Born This Way Loose Powder (£22) using a Real Techniques contour brush, & set the rest of my face with the Too Faced Born This Way Pressed Powder Foundation (£28).
I used the Benefit Hoola Bronzer Mini (£14.50). I’ll definitely purchase the full size once I’ve used up this mini as it’s the perfect shade and goes on so smoothly! I used Clinique Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop (£18) to blush up – this is such a gorgeous blush shade and the perfect level of pigment.
To highlight I used the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in champagne pop (£30). I don’t reach for this all that often, it can come off a little too dark depending on which foundation I’m wearing, however it works well with the Clinique one I chose.
To complete the look I used the HUDA beauty contour and strobe Lip Set in Muse & Angelic (£24). These mauve toned shades are right up my street, & have been for quite a while. HUDA lip products are some of the best I’ve tried! A bolder lip definitely makes the look more glam in my opinion.
That’s the completed look! What do you think? I think it looks pretty simple but glam. Let me know your thoughts!
