The second look I have created today and is inspired by Billie Faiers from TOWIE who always has flawless glowing skin.For those of you that haven’t heard of Billie I have posted a picture above. The girls in TOWIE always have flawless make up its all about the glamour, glowing skin and lots of tan! I have used the same foundation used by both Billie & Sam Faiers to achieve this look.
To start I prepped my face with Smashbox Photofinish Light Primer I then dampened my beauty blender and applied a pea size amount of Laura Mercier Silk Crème foundation to the back of my hand. This foundation is a crème based foundation and its really thick so a little goes a long way. Laura Mercier recommends shaking the bottle before use and using a damp sponge to apply. I wouldn’t recommend using anything other than the beauty blender to apply this foundation otherwise you tend to find it just smears and moves around your face. If applied with a beauty blender this will give a full coverage flawless satin finish. I used the shade cashew beige which I would say compares to NC40.
Laura Mercier Silk Crème claims to be a flawless light diffusing, wrinkle vanishing, long wearing base. This foundation really is flawless but oily girls need to be realistic-This is a luminous crème foundation so you are going to need to set with powder such as Mac Studio Fix and blot throughout the day. Its another one of those I keep to one side for nights out rather than a go to for every day.
As you can see Billies under eye area is heavily highlighted so I used Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Peach and a few drops of Mac lustre drops on the cheek bones. You most definitely need to apply a concealer with this foundation as it does crease in the under eye area. For brows again I used Mac Spiked & the Mac Brow Gel in Show off which is my everyday brow kit.
On the eyes I went for Mac Scene shadow as a base and used Collection black gel liner and also running =this along the lash line and smudging with a black shadow from the Sleek Storm palette. I then added a flick into the corners of the eye and applied Rimmel black kohl liner in the waterline. To finish I used Urban Decay half baked in the corners to highlight and applied Chanel Le Volume Mascara to my lashes. Of an evening I would also add some false lashes to really glam this up.
I used my favourite bronzer Mac Give Me Sun and as this is a heavily bronzed look rather than using my usual angled brush to apply I used Bobbi Browns blush brush to get a more all over glow. On the cheeks I used Clinique’s Precious Posy blush which is a deep coral which shimmering particles and really makes the cheeks pop. I highlighted with Mac Soft & Gentle which is another product that Billie herself uses.
I applied a Mac lipstick in the shade Dressmaker Dressmaker which is a lovely soft peach shade and a slick of W7 Peach Lights Gloss to finish.
If anyone has any suggestions of any other looks they would like to see then please do let me know.
