Hey everyone, I hope you’re all doing well & that January treated you well. I uploaded my January Roundup Youtube Video today which I’d love you to watch if you want to hear about my top faves in beauty, books, tv & more. In my blog post today I wanted to share with you a new simple glam everyday makeup look that I’ve been wearing a lot lately. I haven’t shared a makeup look/tutorial here for a while, so I thought it would be a good idea to.
BASE: To prime the skin I chose to use a combination of two primers. Firstly, I used the Urban Decay All Nighter Face Primer (£26). I find that this primer helps keep my makeup looking nice for longer! I then added some of the Too Faced Hangover Primer (£28) to keep my skin nice and hydrated.
For foundation I chose the Too Faced Born This Way Matte Foundation in Swan (£29) . It’s no secret that I adore this foundation – it looks flawless on the skin. I used the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection brush – this brush is a game changer!
To prep my under eyes I first colour corrected with two products. Firstly the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector (£21), and then the Smashbox Color Correcting Stick in Look Less Tired Lite (£18). I tapped both of these out with a finger. To conceal & contour I used two shades (Snow & Honey) of the Too Faced Born This Way concealer. Again, one of my ride or die makeup items. I used the Real Techniques beauty sponge to blend out the concealer & the Real Techniques buffer brush for the contour.
I set the concealer areas of my face with the Too Faced Born This Way Loose Powder in Translucent (£24) on a Real Techniques contour brush. Then with a big fluffy Spectrum brush, I set the rest of my face with the Too Faced Pressed Powder Foundations in Cream Puff (£29).
To bronze I used the Fenty Sun Stalk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer in Shady Biz (£25). I love this bronzer as it doesn’t add too much product at a time which means you get a lovely seamless application & it never looks patchy. I used a Spectrum A05 for this! With a Wet n Wild contour brush I applied Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Blush (£30) – I love this blush but I never seem to reach for it. I love the way it looks & applies so I need to remember to use it more. To highlight the high points of my face I used Benefit Cookie Highlighter (£27), with the brush that comes inside the box.
EYES: The star of this simple glam everyday look is the gorgeous Becca Light Gleam Primer & Topper Liquid Eyeshadow in Lunar (£21). This is such a stunning product, and it is so easy to use too. I simply swipe on the ‘primer’ side and pat it out with my finger, then do the same with the ‘topper’ side. It creates a pretty look in seconds! I added a small wing using the Benefit Roller Liner Liquid Eyeliner (£19.50). This eyeliner is just about starting to dry out, but it has lasted me SO long. After applying some Maybelline Lash Sensation Mascara (£8.99), I used the Too Faced Better Than Sex False Lashes in Drama Queen (£14). They are a new launch from Too Faced & they’re gorgeous!
LIPS: To complete the makeup look I used the NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in London (£4), paired with Clinique Pop Lip Colour & Primer in Mocha Pop (£18) & Clinique Pop Splash Lip Gloss & Hydration in Coconut Pop (£18).
Finally I spritz the Becca Skin Love Glow Shield (£22) to allow all the makeup to mesh together nicely!
That’s everything for this simple glam everyday look! What do you think of the completed look!?
Thank you so much for reading,
