Recently I’ve been getting a lot more interested in the makeup world. Even though I am very much an advocate for self love I genuinely enjoy the process of putting makeup on. Since my last everyday makeup post my look has changed a lil bit particularly since I have been a lot more into K-beauty recently.
So with out further adieu her is how I create this look!
I start by exfoliating my lips with Lush’s Mint Julips and moisturising them with my all time favourite lip balm Carmex. I moisturise with the Nip + Fab Dragons Blood Fix Plumping Serum followed by sunscreen (even on cloudy days!) and the Benefit Porefessional. I have two powders that I like to use depending on my skin that day so I go between Rimmel Match Perfection and the Ettusais BB mineral powder today however I went with the first option. A smooth as silk translucent mattifying powder. I then like to brush my brow into place and fill them in with the Benifit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in the colour 3. Another product which, for me, achieves a similar look is the Sweet-Sweets Lasting Brow Marker which by the way is amazing. Continuing on with my face is my #1 favourite product at the moment, the Nip + Fab Blusher Pallette in whisper. For my highlight I actually use a eyeshadow. After testing a bunch of different highlighters my fave is this which is the Makeup Obsession Eyeshadow in Champagne. Ok, Last two (favourite) steps. With my Rimmel Eyeliner Pencil I line my upper waterline and lash line finishing it of with a baby baby wing. With a white eyeliner I line my lower lash line from the corner of my eye to the centre focusing mainly on the corner. LIP TIME! I start of by applying my NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream into the centre of my lips and blending in out to the rest of my lips. I follow that up with my NYX Lip Lingerie in Honeymoon right onto the centre of my lips and blend it out. I then powder the edges of my lips to to soften it up and bam. I am done. Super easy, super quick. Also for a final touch I like to spray on my Lush Eau Roma Water to set it.
Like I said loving your self before deciding to use makeup is so important! Those of you trying to clear your skin try wearing sunscreen everyday. Whilst it may not clear all pimples it will help to prevent premature skin ageing, sun spots and unnecessary pigmentation. Although it is better to go for 30 SPF and above if you really really want to tan go for something lower, anything is better than no sunscreen.
Oh and by the way! My top and pinafore are from H&M and my earrings are from Topshop.
That is all! BYEXX
