Date night makeup!!♡

Hi beauties ♡

Even before we had Rylie we, me & matt my fiance, found it hard to find time just for us. So now baby is here we are trying to make an effort every couple of months at least to have us time! Last week we went on our first date night since little man was born. So of course, I made an effort!🙂 I’m obsessed with how my makeup turned out so thought I would share it with you all 😘

If you follow my instagram you’ll have already had a sneak peek, follow me here! (I follow back)💜

For this look I just did my normal go to base, if you’d like me to do a post on my go to base routine comment below 🙂

I wanted to look like I’d made an effort but not spent ages, I love a smokey look so decided on this look, which I’m obsessed with!!

To start I used my Hoola bronzer in the crease of my eyes as a bit of warmth & definition. I then went in with a light & dark brown on the very outer corner of my eyes! Start by using the lighter brown to make it easier to blend the dark shade on top. Smoke out where you will be putting liner. Then once your happy go in with the darker brown to intensify the smokiness even more & to add dimension to the look. Don’t worry if it looks messy it comes together in the end.

I then used a black shadow along the lash line & roughly softened this for a smokey effect. Build up the shadows to your desired intensity of smoke, I left it quite soft & added winged liner to finish off the look! The winged liner really pulls the look together.

Since we are in autumn I decided that I was going to crack out my fave autumnal/winter lip! My matte liquid lipstick in the shade sensual!

This shade is my ALL TIME FAVE, I love it & really loved how it complimented this makeup look! Since the lip is dark I did use a liner first, applied the lippy & then blotted the excess off for a long lasting finish!!

Let me know if you like these shorter posts? Or do you prefer a more in depth tutorial style post?🙂

Love hearing your feedback!❤

Monday MOTD: How I contour & highlight!❤

Hi Beauties 🌞

I’ve been writing my blog for a little over a year and I’m yet to do a my contour and highlighting routine. So today I’ve got that for you.. I can’t believe I haven’t done one until now!!

Anyway, let’s get right into it…

image

As always I start with a clean, well moisturised base. I then went in with my Revlon Colorstay Foundation (shade buff) as I wanted a more full coverage. I blended this in using my Real Technique Miracle Complexion Sponge.
To highlight my under eye area I used my L’Oréal Lumi Magique Highlighting Concealer (review to come!!).

image

If you are new to contour & aren’t really sure where it goes, suck in your cheeks to make a ‘fish’ face (as you can see marked by my brush here!!).

image

I applied Benefit Hoola with my Real Techniques Cheek Brush, make sure you blend it well so it isn’t just a harsh line. I also apply it to the temples and forehead to warm up the rest of my face!

image

I don’t have a ‘fat’ face as such, I just like to contour my jaw line to add extra definition and warmth!

image

My favourite part to my face makeup is definitely highlight, it adds so much definition and life into the face.
Once again, when you suck in your cheeks your cheek bone should stick out, this is where the highlight is placed!

image

I absolutely adore this highlighter, can you not see the glow? I used Makeup Academy’s Highlight in English Rose! My favourite way to apply this is with my Real Techniques Blush Brush. It distributes the perfect amount to the cheek! 🙂

image

Here’s what my contour and highlight looks like finished. PLUS this purple smokey eye is coming up for next weeks MOTD :)❤

Do you contour & highlight? What are your favorite products?

Monday MOTD: 90s inspired ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

The other week I was feeling a 90s inspired makeup look,  so I thought I’d show you all how I achieved this simple; but effective, 90s look!!!

L’Oréal True Match Foundations in W1.
Rimmel Stay Matte powder in translucent.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer.

Eyes/Brows
Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara in black.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in black.

Lips

I often wear simple makeup looks like this and switch up the lip colour. I don’t usually have that much time to create dramatic looks. – hoping I’ll have some soon though!!!!

Monday MOTD: My go-to look! ❤

Hi Beauties 🌞

I’ve been working so much recently that I haven’t had time to really wear much makeup! But when I do this is the look I ALWAYS steer towards…

image

I love wearing a simple eye look with fresh,  dewy looking skin and pop of red on the lips. It’s so flattering & perks me up! 🙂

What’s your go – to feel good makeup look? ❤

Monday MOTD: Stoplight Eye ❤

Hi beauties. 🌞

So I’ve been super super busy this week,  where has it gone? Time just seems to fly these days!!! I hope you are all well & haven’t missed me too much 😉

Due to my lack of posts I’m going to make sure I get back into the routine & create a blogging schedule. Don’t worry I’m still here. 🙂

Anyway, since it’s Monday I’ll be doing a Monday Makeup of the day (this is going to be a weekly thing!) ❤

So the other night I had a couple of hours free, so I decided to create a makeup look of the ‘Spotlight Eye’ trend. I really liked how it turned out;  so here it is…

Eyes
I started off by cleansing my skin, Iused a new product, Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Face Mask (review coming on Friday!). I then moisturised my face. To let that sink into the skin I decided to do my eyes before skin. 🙂

image

To even the skin tone on my eyes I used a bit of concealer. To set that in place I used the lightest shade in my Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette (all shadows used are from this palette!). To create a transition through my crease I used a medium toned brown as my transition shade!!

image

To add more definition I just kept building the intensity of the medium toned brown all throughout the crease, even the inner part of the eye. Just make sure you leave the centre of the lid nice and bright! Hence the name, spotlight eye. 🙂

image

I decided I wanted to deepen the look further, so using the darkest matte shade in the palette I blended this through the crease from inner corner to outer corner.
Remember. Blend blend blend!!!!
To brighten the centre I reapplied the lightest shade and a small amount of the lightest shimmery shade. Keep this in the very centre for that strong focus on the eye!

image

Face
– L’Oréal True Match Foundation in W1
– Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 1
– Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in translucent
– Benefit Hoola Bronzer
– Catrice Blush
– Mua Highlighter in English Rose

image

Brows/Lips
– Maybelline Brow Drama in Medium Dark
– MAC Creme Cup – nude lip option
– Maybelline Colour Sensational Shocking Coral – bright lip option

I really loved how this looked in the end. 🙂

What do you think of the spotlight eye trend? ❤
