Oh So Natural!



Hi everyone hope you have all had a great weekend! I do like to post as much as I can at the weekends however yesterday I had two makeup appointments so didn't have the time, luckily I got one up on Friday tho! I have had a relaxing day today, I have been on a nice walk with the dog, and im cooking a meal for everyone tonight :) but while im sitting by the nice coal fire I thought I would write up my post for today. I did another valentines look today because I think this will be the last one I will be able to do in time. My skin still hasn't fully cleared up from my last post so I decided to do something very minimal so not to irritate anything, but with some glittery pinks to suit the occasion. I think this is perfect for day time more than night so I have not used any eyelashes. Its just super pretty and natural.


Eyes:
Benefit Brow Zings
Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Strawberry Milk
Avon Black Khol Eyeliner
Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara
Benefit Eye Bright Pencil
Naked 1 Palette: Sin, Sidecar, Naked and Creep

I started with my eyebrows, using the brow zings and setting it with the brow gel. For the eyes I began with applying the jumbo pencil all over the eyelid, round and under the inner corner of the eye. I then applied Sin all over the top. Next I took Half Baked and with a fluffy brush blended it all around the edge and into the crease. I blended out this edge with Naked so there was no harsh lines. I then lined the top of the eye with a strong line with the black eye pencil. I took Creep on an angled brush and applied it over the liner pushing upwards to smudge it all out. With what was left on the brush I gently lined the outer part of the lower lash line to add definition. I lined the water line with the eye bright pencil. I finished with a coat of mascara and one final dab of Sin to the very centre of the eyelid.

Tip: Using a cream base for eye shadow ensures it stays for longer and helps you get the best pigment.




Face:
Revlon Photo Ready Foundation
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
Ben Nye Cameo Powder
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Sleek Lace Blush Palette shade Chantilly
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

I started by applying Foundation all over the face, then concealing my under-eyes, bridge of the nose, chin and forehead. I set everything with the loose powder, then applied the bronzer to areas that would naturally catch the sun to warn the face. I finished with applying the blush to the cheekbones and highlighting the tops of then and under the brows. 



Lips:
NYX Pale Pink Lip Pencil
L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Julianne's Nude

I Filled in all the lips with the pencil then applied the lipstick

Tip: by filling in the whole lip with the lip pencil helps the lipstick last longer.

So that's my latest Valentines look for you, I like this as it is really fresh faced but with a nice shimmer on the eyes so they pop a bit more. have a great start to the week everyone and I'll be back soon.
