Just a quickie to show you the make-up I went for yesterday…
I wanted something quick but long lasting as I had a busy day of a road trip to Weston-Super-Mare, gardening and we planned a sunset picnic and I didn’t really want to be touching my make up, up all day.
Face: Make Up Academy Brightening concealer, I used Maxfactor Lasting Performance foundation in Natural Beige, applied with a foundation Brush, more concealer where it was needed (I’ve not got the best skin at the moment), finally True Match pressed powder in Golden Beige.
Cheeks: Make Up Academy Mosaic Bronzer in Sunkissed Glow – love this! Such a bargain at just £2.50 and gives the best contouring!
Eyebrows: Body Shop brow kit 03
Eyes: Mac Peek at you eyeshadow over the entire lid up to the brow, applied with Mac eyeshader brush 239 – this shade gives a bit of a glow without wearing full eyeshadow. Mac Brown Eyeliner under the eye for a less harsh look. Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in Brown. Again I love this product it comes with a brush and as you can see from the picture has a slight shimmery bronze look to it. It’s really easy to apply with the brush in small strokes. I went for the double eye flick look. Simply start with the lower flick on each eye, as big or as small as you want, using the brush and gently flicking it outwards. Use a cotton bud to mop up any mistakes. Then follow the line of the eye further up to add your 2nd flick. It’s really feminine and girly, and almost gives the illusion of fluttery lashes from afar! Give it a go it’s not that hard honest!
Lips: As it was the day time I went for a simple lip light lip colour. I’m loving Revlon Cappuccino Lipstick at the moment, the shine on it is great and it’s really long lasting. Apply a liner (I went for Maxfactor Mauve Moment) use this generously along the edges of your lips and blend into your lips gently with a brush avoiding smudging the outer line. The fill in your lips with the lipstick with a lip brush and blot well. Your lipstick should last you a good 4 hours.
Of course this could be made into an evening look by switching the brown liners for black, enhancing the flicks to make them bigger and a bolder lip!
