Since the weather here in the UK has finally started to brighten up I thought it was about time I filmed a spring/summer inspired look, so if you’d like to check-out my video for this look below then click here, all products & brushes used are also listed in the describtion box of the video.
As always I started with a fresh, clean face (see my Morning Routine for more info) before appying any makeup on my skin. Before applying my foundation I used the Gosh Velvet Touch Primer, I then mixed together the L’Oreal True Match Foundation with the MeMeMe Beat the Blues Highlighter, this is so I get a nice dewy finish to the look as the foundation itself sets quite matte!
To conceal my undereye circles I used Maybelline The Eraser (this also gives a nice highlighted effect under the eyes!). To conceal any blemishes/redness I used Collection’s Lasting Perfection Concealer, this concealer is a very full coverage & just about covers everything you wish to be covered.
To ensure my base doesn’t slip & slide everywhere throughout the day I ALWAYS set it with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, I then used Benefits Hoola Bronzer (click here for my review!) and Sleeks Shimmer Blush in Rose Gold to bring back life to my face!
As this is a spring/summer look I wanted to keep the eyes simple & natural looking, so I went for a neutral winged liner look. To create this look I used MACs Eyeshadow in Naked Lunch all over the lid and both matte brown shades from the Avon True Colour Eyeshadow Quad in the crease & blended it out. I love this neautral look as it makes my eyes appear brighter and more awake. To make this look a tad more dramatic (but wearable for the daytime) I used the L’Oreal Superliner in black to create a winged liner, I then used Rimmels Soft Kohl in white in the waterline and Maybellines One-By-One Mascara to brighten up my eyes further.
Although I don’t really need to fill in my brows on a daily basis as my brows are naturally quite full, I choose to, I prefer the look it gives as it ties any makeup look together! As I have full brows anyway I make sure to fill in sparse areas more than anything, for this I used my ELF Studio Eyebrow Kit and combed through the brows with a makeup spoolie!
YAY. The fun part!! So for the main feature of this look, the lips, I used Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 220 Showy Flamboyante. This colour is absolutely gorgeous & just brightens up any look (for a swatch of the colour click here).
