Breakdown

Hair

Tonight I went for a sleek straight hair look. Firstly I straightened all my hair, I choose a middle parting and added some volume by using a TEASING COMB. I  took the front section of my hair on both sides and tightly secured it with a elastic band underneath my main bulk of hair. I then applied a bobby pin on each side to secure this just behind my ears, I apply hairspray to make sure it stays in place all evening and keep my flyaway’s  under control. I then complete this look by using my TRESEMME FINISHING SPRAY.

Make Up

Eyes

 I started off by applying concealer on my lid, I blend this out with a beauty blender and apply a setting powder to seal the base.

I place MAC PAINTPOT on my lid, as a primer and then use my lightest eyeshadow shade white/cream (1) to cover fromactual numbers mac pal my lid to brow bone. I then go in with a custard/beige (2) shade to make it easier to blend at the end, I apply this below my brow bone. In my crease I then go in with a burnt orange shade(3), apply a little and then blend and repeat in till you get the colour you desire.. (You can always apply more, so take your time.)

I then chose a cranberry purple shade for my outer v(4), again apply a little, blend and repeat. Finally, I used a gold glitter shadow on my lid(5) to add a bit of sparkle,  to get the perfect consistency I always wet the brush as this will give off a higher pigmented colour.  I suggest MAC FIX+ or URBAN DECAY SETTING SPRAY.

I went with a winged liner however did not fill in my water line as it sometimes can close off my eyes making them look small. I always apply shadow below my lash line with the dark cranberry and burnt orange over the time. I curled my lashes and applied some mascara before I put on my false lashes.

(I have used the MAC palette in this post so its nice and easy for you to relate and follow the steps.)

Brows

I used my KIKO Eyebrow Sculpt Automatic Pencil and go over this with the MAYBELLINE GEL LINER (BROWN.) Both these products are dupes for Anastasia Beverly hills browwiz and pomade. I then go in with my LA GIRL PRO CONCEALER to tidy up my brows.

Face

On my face I went for a full coverage foundation, I mixed ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR  and MAKE UP FOREVER to give me my base. I went for a strong contour using ANASTAISA BEVERLY HILLS contour palette and bronzed with ESTEE LAUDER SUN GODDESS. A pale pink blush on my cheeks from the BH COMSETIC BLUSH PALETTE and plenty of highlighter from the BALM cosmetics MARY LOU.

Lips

I applied MAC STRIPDOWN lip liner over my entire lips and then went in with a dark brown liner to intensify my lip line. I choose to wear one of my favourite nudes  MAC BLANKETY and INGLOT 263 lipstick with a shiny gloss.

Outfit

 The dress code for this event was all black, but that always seems to be my dress code!

My outfit is a two piece however it does give the impression of it being a jumpsuit. I am wearing a body suit and high-wasted wide legged trousers with slits on the side both from BOOHOO, paired with a belt I got from ASOS years ago!

WARM BROWNS AND NUDE LIPS

This look is one of my favourites of all time, in fact its my go to look for most occasions!

The look I will show in this blog post is my day look, I would wear this look in the evening however I would ‘glam’ this look up by including lashes and liner and overall a more defined face.

morphe palette warmOrange tones, especially a dark burnt orange is one of my favourite eyeshadow colours, the reason being It is a great contrast with my eyes. Me, having blue eyes with an orangery tone shadow is a good combination as it enhances my eye colour. Brown shades are also one of my favourites as I find them very warming on any eye colour but also adds definition. mac warm palette

My go to palette for this look would be the MAC Warm Neutral Palette (which includes my favourite burnt orange shade as you can see on the Right) or  Morphe Brushes 35W 35 Colour Warm Palette (Left) both palettes are extremely pigmented and blend seamlessly.

I love a nude lips and my favourite nudes are “MAC Fleshpot, MAC Honey Love and Mac Barely There” I also find Maybelline lipsticks the perfect dupes for a cheaper alternative that are super pigmented and nourishing. Always pair your lipstick with a lip liner first, think of it like a primer for your lips it will help your lipstick stay on longer like a primer helps your foundation last all day!

I will do a tutorial on this look for my ‘glammed’ WARM BROWNS AND NUDE LIPS that will walk you through the progress step by step in case you’d like to follow.
