MY LOOK ON THE 19/05/16
Yes, I was out on a school night but who’s keeping track!
The break down of my look; Make-Up, Hair and Outfit!
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.
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 from 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.)
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.
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.
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.
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!
