Makeup of the day

MOTD!

Hey lovelies 😘

Ahhhhh, I’m super excited to be back! Just trying to get my shizz together; growing a human is hard!! *laughs*

Today I actually wore makeup, so thought I’d show you my go to look at the minute 🙂

Each time I go to put on makeup I gravitate towards these products, well the face products at least 🙂 eye products vary depending on my mood & what look I’m going for that day 🙂

Today I just wanted a quick look that I could throw on before the school run! So here it is… let’s get started…

Ever since becoming pregnant I haven’t really wore a lot of makeup, my skin has changed so much! BYE BYE Mrs oily, hello dry desert face 😂😂 I’m thinking an updated skincare routine is in order so definitely let me know if you’d like to see that 🙂

Anyway, for my face I’ve been keeping it simple! As this NYX Mineral Stick Foundation is pretty moisturizing I have been loving it, paired with my trusty collection lasting perfection concealer & you can’t go wrong! 😍 Using the stick foundation all over & the collection concealer under my eyes I then blend both in using my FOREVER TRUSTED Real Techniques buffing brush!!😃

As my face has been dry I haven’t been bothering to use powder; if I do set it I’ve been loving using a setting spray!!

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE EYES!!

I wish I had some ground breaking look to share with you, but sadly it’s an easy peasy one today!! Be to be honest, I sometimes prefer these sort of looks, how about you?🙂

Today I used just 2 shadows!! Whaaaat!? Yes, only 2!! & I love how it turned out😍

I used the shade optimistic all over my lid, love this as a base, such a nice consistency & balance of shimmer! 😍 On the crease & outer edge I used the shade agile.. these mauve/burgundy shades are my fave for making my green eyes POP!!😃

No eye look is complete without mascara & brows so I just popped on a small amount of mascara & defined my brows with my fave brow gel🙂

What mascara have you ladies been loving??🙂love trying new ones!!

These next products are probably my ALL TIME FAVE!! ❤ each time I have done my makeup these last few months I’ve reached for these… absolutely loveeeee how they make my skin look!! 😍 what are they you ask?….

Soap & Glory love at first blush, this just gives you the most natural, radiant looking blush/sunkissed glow😍 I then top it off with my FAVE highlighter, Younique a la mode highlight in iridescent 😃

Here’s how they look on my skin…

How beautiful do they look? Love how naturally glowy they make me ☺😍

For my lips I just threw on my maybelline baby lips, think it’s the cherry one so it’s slightly tinted!!☺ I’m living for anything nourishing & hydrating at the minute 🙂

Get The Look: 50’s Inspired!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

If you follow me on instagram (if not, follow me @heyaitsnat) you’ll know that about a week ago I posted a picture of a 50’s inspired makeup look. I asked who’d like to see this look & it got quite a few likes so I took that as a yes. To be honest, I’d have done it anyway as I’ve wanted to do this for a while now but never got round to it 🙂

Inspiration photos…wpid-photogrid_1406395770393.jpgClick here for the website I found my inspiration pics on 🙂 Taylor Swift is also a huuuge inspiration when it comes to a look like this, as this is like her typical, everyday, makeup look 🙂

So I’m going to run through how I achieved my 50’s inspired makeup look. I really like how it turned out, I hope you do too…

1. I first start with a freshly cleansed, toned & moisturised face (for my morning skincare routine click here). As you can see my bare face is far from perfect, I have quite a lot of redness & dark patches. So lets begin & solve this problem…

wpid-20140725_194924.jpg

2. I started off by applying my L’Oreal True Match foundation, I didn’t apply concealer as I am going to do this after.I just wanted to get an even-ish coverage first before perfecting my skin later.

wpid-20140725_201441.jpg

3. I then went in with two light shades from my ELF palette all over the lid to brighten up my eyes.

wpid-20140725_201150.jpg

4. Using the same ELF palette I then mixed a light brown shade with a darker brown shade to act as a transition colour for the crease. As this is a 50’s inspired look there won’t be many shadows involved, just neutral colours to contour the eye a little.

wpid-20140725_201205.jpg

5. To darken up the crease & give a bit more definition I went in with my Hoola Bronzer with a fluffy tapered brush, from ELF. This just gives the look a bit more depth & dimension, which is fab for this style of makeup look!!

wpid-20140725_201324.jpg

6. This is what the eye looks like with subtle definition ready for the best part, the eyeliner!! I have slightly winged the shadow out to add to the cat-eye effect that we’ll be creating later in the look.

wpid-photogrid_1406395734532.jpg

7. Using my beloved L’Oreal Super Liner in Black Lacquer I lined my lash line & winged it out slightly at the edge. We all know how important a good cat eye was back in the 50’s! So practice, practice, practice girlies 🙂

wpid-photogrid_1406395674634.jpg

8. The picture I was inspired by had a sort of double wing look going on, so I just had to copy it, I loove it! To achieve this I used my Rimmel Kohl Pencil in White, make sure it’s sharp & draw a line parallel to the black one of the wing you just created. To define the double wing, add more black liner underneath the white. To do this I used my Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl in Black! To complete the eyes I then popped lashings of my Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara on.

It didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. But for my first time, I was pretty pleased!

wpid-photogrid_1406395614165.jpg9. To finish the look I concealed my dark circles, blemished & redness with my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I then set the base with my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent. To add more life to my face I contoured my cheek bones using Benefit Hoola & to warm the face a but more I used my Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba. For my brows I just kept them natural & set them with clear mascara.

No 50’s inspired look would be complete without a red lip, so I of coursed finished this makeup look off with my Topshop Lips in Screen Siren. I don’t know why, but these pics make it seem a pink-y red. I assure you it is a true red 🙂
