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?

Lots of Love Natasha

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!!!

image

Face
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.
Benefit Gimme Brow.

Lips
L’Oréal Colour Riche Lipstick in beige au nu  (360).

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!!!!

What do you all think?
What’s your go to look? 🙂

Hauls

Mini haul ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

Last week I decided to nip into town since I needed a few skincare items. Obviously I didn’t just buy what I needed, haha. So today I’m  sharing with you what I picked up from Boots and Superdrug!:)

L’Oréal had a 3 for 2 offer, naturally I took it upon myself to buy 3 items. I’ve been wanting to repurchase the True Match foundation for agesssss now, so decided to pick it up. I got shade W1 as N1, the shade I got before, was a bit ghostly.
Click here for an in depth review.

The second L’Oréal product I picked up was the Brow Plumper;  my twin beautifulbreakable adores and highly recommends. Definitely look forward to a review!

image

Thirdly, I got L’Oréals Lumi Magique Concealer. I’ve not tried this so I’ll keep you all posted 🙂

image

I was running low on my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, so repurchased it. LOVEEEE this. Definitely my go to concealer!! 🙂

image

I recently discovered how much I love this Soap and Glory Sugar Crush scent so had to pick up the body wash. If you haven’t smelt it. YOU NEED TO!!

image

I was in need of a new face cleanser so decided to give this Soap and Glory Peaches and Cream Deep Cleansing Milk a try. I’ll keep you posted on it!:)

image

I’ve already done a ‘First Impression’ on this Soap and Glory No Clogs Allowed. Click here to find out more about it!

image

I’ve always been curious about Micellar Water so I decided to try this Garnier one. A review will be on its way! 🙂

image

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them? ❤

Makeup of the day

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

image

I really loved how this looked in the end. 🙂

What do you think of the spotlight eye trend? ❤
