On a slightly lighter note than my previous post last night saw me get glammed up and head out for cocktails with my friends. You can read all about my bank holiday look below.
To start I prepped my face with my favourite moisturiser Dermalogica Active Moist which is perfect for oily skin. I then applied Smashbox Photofinish Light Primer to create a smooth base. For foundation I used Mac Studio Fix Fluid which is my go to for nights out and applied with a damp beauty blender. I used the shade NW30 to add some warmth to my skin.
I brightened the under eye area with Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Peach and a few drops of Macs Lustre Drops on the cheek bones to highlight. I set my foundation and concealer with Mac Studio Finish Powder in NC42.
I have green eyes and I find that the best colours to accentuate them are brown or bronze shades. I chose to use Mac Amber Lights all over the lid and used a Collection Gel Eyeliner to tight line and ran across the lid to create a subtle winged look .In the waterline I used A Rimmel black kohl liner and lashes was my go to Chanel Le Volume Mascara! For my brows I used Mac’s pencil in Spike and Brow Gel in Show off.
To contour I used a Mac Mineralise Skinfinish in Give Me Sun which I picked up from Mac on Wednesday which is really lovely. I wanted to create a warm rosy look so applied Bobbi Brown Pink Coral Shimmer Blush to the apple of the cheeks and a healthy amount of Macs Soft & Gentle highlighter on the cheek bones,down the nose and on the cupids bow.
To compliment the bronze eye shadow I opted for Macs Please Me lipstick which is a soft girly pink. The matte finis is perfect for nights out as it doesn’t budge.
I usually wear my hair down for nights out but fancied a change last night and wore my hair in a chic up do using my Balmain B-Loved. I washed my hair earlier that morning and left to dry naturally.
To start I teased my hair and sprayed short bursts of Schwarzkopf Got2b big sexy hairspray to create volume at the crown. I put my hair in a low pony tail and looped through to create a bun letting any loose bits fall down to frame my face. Clipping the Balmain B-loved over the bun I had just created I then swirled it round to create a large chignon and pinned into place. I sprayed this with hairspray to hold and pulled out a few bits from the bun to give it a messy look.
I hope you all have a great Easter
