This weekend I am finally back into my blog routine again and I finally had time to do a makeup post for you. These are my favourite posts to do for you, as a makeup artist I am wanting to practice all the time and doing makeup on myself really helps me, and this is what I like to share with you.
L'Oreal True Match Foundation
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
MAC Prep and Prime in Light Boost
No7 Translucent Powder
Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
L'Oreal Blusher in Sandalwood Pink
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle
I used more products then usual on my face today, as it is more of a going out look and I wanted more highlight and contour. I started by applying foundation all over the face then concealed my under eyes and eyelids with the pro longwear concealer. I then used the prep and prime highlighter in areas I wanted to highlight therefore, the under eye area, centre of the forehead, down the nose and chin. I then blended this out but keeping it in the areas I put it.
I then used the cream bronzer to contour the hollows of the cheeks, top of the forehead and jaw line. Again blending it out put keeping it in those specific areas. I then set the T-zone with translucent powder as I don't usually need to set having dry skin.
to finish I applied bronzer over the areas I applied the contour to emphasize it the applied blusher to the cheeks and the highlighter on the tops of the cheeks and nose to finish.
Eyes: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil Benefit Gimme Brow No7 Eye Shadow in True Gold Illamasqua Multi Facet Palette in Aura Maybelline Black Gel Liner MAC Teddy Eye Pencil Ardell Demi Wispies False Lashes Maybelline The Falsies Mascara Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
I started with the brows filling them in with the pencil then setting them with the gimme brow. By applying the concealer when doing the base earlier to the eyelids it creates the perfect base for eye shadows. I started by placing a bit of tape to either side of the eyes to make sure I created perfect lines. I then applied the gold eye shadow all over the eye lid. Secondly I used the gel liner to create a strong line and long wing. I then used the brown eye shadow out of the palette to the crease and blended out. To finish eye the eye shadow I applied the black shade in the crease only in the outer corner to add definition. I then applied the Maybelline mascara and false lashes.
For the bottom lash line I used the gold eye shadow in the tear duct and the inner third of the lower lash line. I then used the black shadow from the outer part meeting up to the gold, then blended it all together with the same brown used earlier. I used the teddy pencil in the water line and roller lash mascara for the lower lash line. I then took off the tape and I had perfectly neat lines.
Lips: Bare Minerals Lip Pencil in Thrilled Urban Decay Lipstick in Liar No7 Translucent Powder MAC Lipstick in Fleur De Coral
I lined the lips and filled the uter corners in with the pencil then applied the UD lipstick all over. To make this matte I applied the translucent powder over the top. To finish I applied the MAC lipstick to the centre of the top and bottom of the lips to make them look a little fuller.
So that is my weekend glam, let me know what you think, I hope you like is.
