Everyday makeup.

Makeup

Welcome back to my blog! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Today, I thought I would share with you my ‘go-to’ makeup look that I opt for on a daily basis. It is simple and quick to achieve, which is great for days where I am running late, but still want to look put together (basically everyday!). All product details will be listed below along with some pictures of this natural and glowing look! So, if you want to find out more, then please keep on reading!

Face: For the face I wanted to keep it as simple as possible, whilst still having some coverage, colour and of course, a glow.

  • LA Girl Pro Conceal – shade Green.
  • Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – shade 1.
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder – shade Transparent.
  • Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette – shades Subconscious and Shadowplay.
  • Bourjois Paris Bronzing Powder – shade 51.
  • Benefit Rockateur Blusher.
  • Mac Extra Dimension Skin Finish – shade Double Gleam.

Eyes: For the eyes I opted for a shimmery but natural look that would match perfectly with the dewiness of the skin, with minimal use of shadows in order to save time. I also attempted to make the brows look more natural rather than structured. I did this by using feathery strokes rather than sharp/ harsh ones, as well as making them thicker & lighter.  I love the way they turned out!

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade – shade Ash Brown.
  • Freedom Pro Conceal & Correct Palette – lightest shade for under the brows.
  • Mac Paint Pot – shade Soft Ochre.
  • Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette – shade Bitter Start and Substitute for Love.
  • Loreal Paris individual eyeshadow – shade Wild Gold.
  • Benefit Roller Lash Mascara.
  • Maybelline Brow Drama – shade Medium Brown.
  • Mac Extra Dimension Skin Finish – Double Gleam ( for the inner eye corners).

Lips: For ease I chose to apply some of my Rosy Lips Vaseline; it provides a subtle hint of colour, whilst also moisturising the lips! Not to mention it can be easily reapplied throughout the day.

To finish, as always, I used a few sprays of my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, to make sure that my makeup stays on throughout the whole day!

So, that completes my natural everyday makeup look! I hope you enjoyed this beauty themed post! More to come soon.

Eyebrow Tutorial.

Makeup

Welcome back to my blog! It’s Friday, woo! For today’s post I thought I would share with you a step-by-step tutorial on how I do my eyebrows! I often get compliments on my brows(which are always the best type of compliment!), and think I have finally figured out how to create the perfect gradient brow! So, if you want to find out how I do my eyebrows, then please keep on reading. fullsizerender-35

1. The first step I take when doing my brows, is combing them through with the spoolie end of my eyebrow brush (Makeup Geek). I comb the front of my brows up, and the outer half sideways to create the shape I desire before I apply product. This only takes a few seconds, but is a step I definitely wouldn’t miss!

2. Next, I take my Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in the shade ‘Ash Brown’ and my Makeup Geek brow brush, and begin to fill in my eyebrows. I like to start with the arch/ outer half of my eyebrow as this is where most of the product will be. I then use little brush strokes to apply the pomade so the brow will look as natural as possible ( like real brow hairs). To create the tail of the brow I use more pressure so it is opaque and defined. I usually like my brows to be quite thick, so I draw on a new brow arch that is darker than my natural eyebrows, as you can see in the image below. fullsizerender-32

3. After this, I lightly draw a line underneath the front of my brow which will allow me to create the gradient effect I desire. I then, without applying anymore product, gently fill in the front section of my eyebrow, making sure to get lighter as I reach the front. I also like to check at this point that I am happy with the overall shape and colour of my brow; if not, I go in with my of the dipbrow until I am!

4. When I have created the brow I want, I then like to define it and clean it up using concealer (Freedom Concealer palette in shade’Light’). I use the lightest shade on a Morphe ‘M75’, which is a flat ended brush, and apply it underneath the brow. This gets rid of any mistakes, and really does make a big difference! I blend the concealer using my Real Techniques ‘Deluxe Crease Brush’ which defuses the product and blends it nicely into my Mac Paint Pot in the shade ‘Soft Ochre’, that I use to prime my eyes.

5. The final step I take when doing my eyebrows is setting them in place. I use the Maybelline Brow Drama mascara in the shade ‘Medium Brown’; it ensures that all of the hairs stay in place throughout the day so I don’t have to worry bout them smudging! And that completes my eyebrow tutorial!fullsizerender-34

I hope you enjoyed this post, and let me know if you would like more of these makeup tutorials! I will be back with another post soon.
