Hey guys! For all of you who are hanging around here patiently waiting for me to finally write a beauty post, then its your lucky day.I’ve created this brand new spring make-up look just for you!
That glow though, right? perfect for spring to match all of your brightly coloured pretty spring time outfits!
first off I start with primer – MAC, prep + prime natural radiance base lumiere. I put a few pumps on the back of my hand and apply it to my whole face using a beauty blender.
While I wait for it to soak into my face ready for me to apply foundation, I do my brows. I start with taking my Anastasia Beverly Hills angled eyebrow brush and dip brow in ‘chocolate’. I put the tiniest little bit of product onto the brush and start from the bottom inside corner. I use the brush to follow my natural brow shape and then start another line from the top inside corner, slightly further over from the very edge leaving a blank space about 1.5cm long on the top brow line. This creates the ‘faded’ effect. afterwards. adding a little more product onto yours brush and filling in between the lines leaving the blank space still with product. On the other side of your Anastasia Beverly Hills brow brush should be another brow brush to set all your brows in the correct place. I use this after applying the product to my brows to make sure my brows are in tact and to brush my lower line upwards making that ‘faded’ effect complete. To finish off the brows I use the ABH tinted brow mascara also in the shade ‘chocolate’ and just brush it through my brows to keep them set in place throughout the day. Afterwards, I take the ABH cream contour palette and a concealer brush, I apply a little bit of product to the brush (in the shade soft light) and carve out my brows, bottom and top, to make the shape as perfect as I want it.
Next, it’s finally time for foundation. I used the Make up forever ultra HD foundation for this make up look. It’s medium/high coverage with a slight glow, perfect for taking pictures with. I use the shade Y225 if anyone is really interested in my shade. I use my Morphe flat foundation brush to apply this and my (damp) beauty blender to blend it in.
Then, I start with my eyes. I used my Morphe 35P palette for this look. First, I applied a transition shade using a Morphe tapered blending brush. The shade I used for this is the first shade in the 3rd row of the palette. Next, I took a regular shadow brush from Morphe and applied a lighter pink shade (second in the 1st row) and used another blending brush to apply a deeper pink shade to my crease (4th in the 1st row). I then applied a dark purple sparkly colour to the outer corner and a white highlight colour to the inner corner (4th row 3rd in and 1st colour on the 1st row). To finish off the eyeshadow look I applied a bright pink (last colour in the third row) just to make my eyes really pop!
No eye look is really complete without eyeliner and mascara, so next is liner! I used a liquid liner from beauty bay, with a thin pen on the end to apply it with. I start from the edge of my shadow on the outer corner of my eye and draw a thin line down and along my upper lash line to make a cat eye and then fill in the rest. After that I use my Maybelline lash sensational mascara in intense black to colour my lashes and make them look longer and fuller. The only thing missing from this look is a pair of fake lashes to make them stand out a bit more!
After I’ve finished my eyes and I’m more than happy with the results, I use a high coverage foundation that’s a few shades too light for me -illamasqua skin base in 02 – as a cream highlight. I apply it below my eyes down the bridge of my nose, on my forehead, on my chin and a little bit on my cupids bow and I blend it in again with my damp beauty blender. Afterwards, I use my MAC Studio fix powder in the shade NC15 to set my foundation and concealer in place with my real techniques powder brush!
Next, instead of using a contour shade to define my cheekbones etc I used my MAC Studio Sculpt defining bronzer in the shade Delphic instead, this shade makes your face look more ‘sunkissed’ instead of just contoured. I used my bronzing brush from Morphe to apply this to underneath my cheekbones, down the sides of my nose to create a ‘slimming’ look to my nose, and around my forehead to make it appear smaller, oh, and under my chin, gotta hide those double chins you know.
Then, it’s time for blush. I apply this over the top of my cheekbones to add a bit of colour into my face. I used my MAC powder blush in the colour ‘painted canyon’ for this look. and blended it out to blend in with the bronzer and foundation surrounding it. Then, I apply a little bit of highlighter, using my sleek highlighting palette in the colour hemisphere to add that glow we’ve all been waiting for to my cheekbones, nose and cupids bow.
Just to finish everything off, I go in with my Jeffree Star liquid lipstick in the colour Sagittarius and slightly overlined my lips and filling in the rest.
I hope you all loved this make up look as much as I did! I’m thinking of making a youtube channel and starting to do make up tutorials on there for you all, let me know if any of you would like that, and let me see your results! thank you so much for being here
lots of love xo
