Makeup | #LOTD 3


So continuing on with my Makeup #LOTD series I bring you my third one!  This is actually a little different to what I would normally wear as I always wear liquid liner and for once I opted against it. I also didn't apply as much bronzer, so I'm closer to my natural skin colour here, well I'm still quite far off from it as my natural pale skin is just scary! Anyway let's just get straight into the good stuff yeah?!


BASE
  • I mixed two foundations together MAC Pro LongWear in NW25 which is the colour I was 'matched' up to but it's way too pink and as I didn't want to let it go to waste I mixed Clinique Repairwear in Neutral with it (this is the old repairwear that it's no longer available although some Clinique counters still hold stock) I always use my fingers but I decided to use a brush and use F22 HD Dome Face Brush by Blank Canvas Cosmetics 
  • I then used Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer under my eyes and along my cheek bone. I promise in the flesh my eye bags didn't look anywhere near as obvious as they do in this picture, so I'm totally blaming the lighting! 
  • Even though my spots have gone there is still some slight blemish marks on my chin so I used the AMAZING  Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer on my chin. How I ever lived without this I don't know!!
  • As per usual for my powder I used my MAC Studio Fix Powder in N5 and shockingly *sarcasm* used a  Real Techniques Powder Brush and dab the powder on to my skin, then run the big fluffy brush all over my face to ensure the powder is fully blended in. As if I'd use any other powder brush?!
  • I used my new most favourite contouring brush Zoeva Luxe Highlighter Brushand No7 Perfectly Bronzed Dual Bronzer and added the slightest contour under my cheek bones and just a little up on my temple. I barely put the brush into the bronzer but it added just enough colour to make me not look as dead! :)
  • I then pulled out a blusher I've not used in a while Sleek Blush In Flamingo and used my favourite blusher brush... can you guess? Yep it's the Real Techniques Blush Brush Now with this blusher you need to go in VERY light handed, I literally just dab it on to my cheek bones where the brush is barely touching my cheeks, then give the brush a quick wipe with a tissue and then blend it in as this colour is VERY bright! You can't say you haven't been warned!!! The colour is gorgeous though and gives that English rose kind of look!

EYES
BROWS

 
And finally for my lips I used NYX Matte Lipstick in Alabama. Looking at this picture I really should have used a lip liner! 

For my hair I used Hair extensions from Clip Hair which I made myself in shades #613 and #22 and used I my ghd Eclipse Styler * to add some soft waves to my hair.
And that's it! I hope my steps made sense to you guys! This look is a little different for me, the paler skin with pinkier cheeks and the no liquid liner and minimal liner under my eyes, but I did like it! This was on Sunday for a date night with my other half but I'd totally smoke this eye look out and wear this on a night out!

I've had some really great responses from the other two makeup looks that I've put up which you can find here Makeup #LOTD 1 and Makeup #LOTD 2 so will continue to try to post up a different one each week!
Until Next Time

Where else can you find me?
