My Signature Makeup Look
This is my fail safe makeup look I do when I know I’m going to be out all day meeting people, going to events etc. It lasts all day without the need for touch-ups. It’s so quick, so easy and gets me out the door in under ten minutes! See the breakdown of the contents of my face below or watch my GRWM Video.
I like to prime my face to smooth out any lumps and bumps. My favourite is Soap and Glory One Heck Of A Blot Primer it blurs pores,controls oil and creates the perfect canvas for foundation application. Estee Lauder Doublewear is my ‘ride or die’ foundation. It holds up incredibly well through heat, sweat, humidity and weather and always looks flawless. I get the most compliments on my skin when I’m wearing this. For concealer, I’m loving Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage as it’s exactly what it says, doesn’t crease or settle into fine lines. I set this with my Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder which is literally like an invisible cloak for undereyes. It doesn’t look or feel like powder at all. It’s magic! Then it’s onto setting the rest of my face and for that,I love Rimmel Stay Matte it does the job without ever looking overdone or cakey. For bronzer or more like warming up my face, I use MAC Studio Fix Powder which is a shade darker than my skin tone, I find it gives a really subtle contoured effect which looks so natural.
I always start off with my base blush, Benefit Dallas, this just creates a soft natural blush and slight contour that will compliment any other blush. Over top,I applied my new favourite, Nars Orgasm a peachy pink with delicate gold flecks that bring cheeks to life making me look fresh and vibrant. No need for highlighter here as this alone gives an incredible glow to skin.
This has to be the easiest eye look ever. It’s so simple to achieve and looks so pretty for day or night.Priming my lids is imperative for me as mine are mega oily. I swear by Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. This creates a smooth base for shadows and keeps them in place without a crease in sight! I use Urban Decay Naked and Buck in the crease and lower lashline then pat Sin on the centre of the eyelid for a bit of sparkle. I then use Sexpresso from the Too Faced Natural Eyes palette as my eyeliner. This just gives a softer look to the eye and I love it. I curl my lashes with Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curlers and then apply Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara in black which gives lovely fanned out lashes.
I keep my brows pretty simple as I get them regularly tinted and shaped at the Benefit Brow Bar ( best brow shapers ever!) In between I use a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow called Slate topped with Benefit Gimme Brow to keep them in place. This is the perfect brow combo for me.
Urban Decay All Nighter is the mother of all makeup setting sprays. This is a step that is essential if you want your makeup to not only look freshly applied all day but to be bullet proof throughout the night. I do not leave the house without using this. Spritz over face liberally and fan dry vigorously with said Birthday card.
I hope you found this helpful.
