Hello m'fellow Trustinvoguers and newbies! I'm trying to post much more daily now, so there should be plenty of posts going up this month! Following on from my previous post of my 2 OOTDs due the 2 birthdays (my nephew's 1st birthday and my mum's 51st). If you like, you can check out that post by clicking here! Anyway, I'll be showing you one of the looks, how to achieve it, and what products I used. I tend to stick to similar products throughout my regular makeup routine.
MAKEUP LOOK NUMBER ONE:
This is probably my most favourite makeup look for the Summer, so starting off with the best! Due to the crazy hot weather that Britain has been experiencing, I couldn't wear lots of makeup because, let's face it, it'd just melt off. So, I tend to go for the 'bare minimal' makeup look, but without looking like I haven't made any effort at all. Something as simple as applying mascara and a slick of colour from a lipstick can make you feel and look pretty much made up.
What I used to achieve this look
(excuse the card, I passed my driving test!!)
1. Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay - £36
2. MUA Pro-Brow Kit - £3.50
3. Volume Million Excess Lashes by L'oreal Paris - £10.99
4. White Eyeliner Pencil by MUA - £1.00
5. Lumi Magique Highlighter by L'oreal - £8.50
6. Double Take Long Hold Lipstick by Fashionista - £3.00
How I achieved this look:
Although I didn't photograph the foundation that I used in both of these makeup looks, I used the exact same foundation so it doesn't matter too much. Firstly, I used my everyday go-to foundation which is the L'oreal True Match foundation in 'Rose Ivory'. I then proceeded to do my eyebrows, in which I used an square/flat ended brush (bare minerals) with the MUA pro-brow kit. After doing this, I then went onto my eyes. First, with the MUA white eyeliner pencil. Let me get this straight, it is AMAZING what an white eyeliner can do for your waterline. Like, seriously. White eyeliners really open up your eyes, make you look so much more fresher and alive for Summer! I don't usually wear white eyeliner a lot in the winter, but in the Summer it's a definite must. I then applied my L'oreal Volume Million Excess Lashes (GOD WHY ARE HIGHSTREET BRAND NAMES SO LONG?!) to my eyelashes which i'm actually quite pleased with as a mascara, it's quite similar to Maybelline's falsies I find. After concentrating on the eyes, I focused on my lips and cheeks. I just added my Revlon cream blush in 'pinched' to my cheeks, and a slick of my new favourite lipstick, the Double Take lipstick by Fashionista in Raspberry. I shall be reviewing this soon so look out for that!
