Hey Internet Friends, So this weekend my city Sheffield is playing host to popular music festival Tramlines! This gave me the perfect opportunity to write my first make up walk through, this is a look that I think is perfect for the evenings when you want to make a bit more of an impression but also a look that will last all night and is super easy to apply! Please be kind in the comments as this is the first time since I was about 14 that my face will be on the internet completely make up naked!
In order for my skin to look nice enough for both this walk through and my finished look I followed a skin routine similar to THIS one.
The Mask of Magnanimity is always my best friend when it comes to getting a great starting base.
I start by applying Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to my trouble areas (redness, blemishes, uneven skintone) and blend lightly with my fingertips.
Then using Real Techniques I blend my No7 Beautifully Matte foundation all over my face really working it in to the skin for a full and even coverage.
I realise I look a little more ghost girl then party princess right now but hold on, it gets nicer!
Bronze, Blush & Highlighter
To make myself look less ghost girl I used the Rimmel Bronzer to gently buff around the areas the sun would naturally hit.
Time for that Fish face ladies!
I find as I am rather pale this does take a lot of blending on my skin but the lasting power of this product is A M A Z I N G making it perfect for a night out!
The Blush that Ive used is a massive favourite of mine and its the sleek plush in the shade pomegranate. I just apply this to apples of my cheek using the Real Techniques expert face brush and I feel the little sparkles in it do wonders for my complexion and really makes me look healthier!
I am a strong fan of the latest trend for strong brows, I cant get enough of the defined lines and thick fill and actually receive a fair few compliments on my eyebrows.
The products I use involve a Rimmel Brow Pencil to create the strong lines and then the Benefits Brow Zing’s to fill them in for a strong yet natural look.
The Brow Zings kit has amazing staying power as it involves a wax to really set the eyebrow hairs in place.
The Top Image is just the one shade from the Naked 3 Palette called Mugshot which I simply blend across the lid using the brush provided, I do blend this a lot to get the ‘smoked’ effect you can see here concentrating highly on the crease.
The inner highlight colour on the bottom image is Pistol from Naked 2 and the dark outer colour is Darkside.
I use a clean brush (provided with the Naked Palettes) to apply Strange from Naked 3 above the brow bone and then to blend the whole eye look together.
Ohhh its all starting to come together!
The Finishing Touches to the Eyes
Im calling these finishing touches because you can take or leave the liquid eyeliner, it looks good with or without I just prefer it. We’re obviously not going to leave out the mascara, nobodies that much of an animal.
I use the Mascara Lash Impact by No7 and a simple liquid eyeliner line close to the waterline with a Kohl Pencil Liner on the lower lash line to complete this glam evening eye look.
I always feel more confident on an evening out with a gorgeous Bright Red Lip and tonight I am using the infamous Rimmel Kate Moss 107. I absolutely adore this colour and practically radiate confidence when Im wearing this share making me feel ready for any night out!
I do find it important to use a lip liner with this lipstick for longevity throughout the night as it can bleed a little bit..
I really hope you enjoyed this little walk through, sorry if I missed any bits or rambled a little. This is my first time doing a detailed post like this and I really wanted to make my points clear.
What cosmetic items makes you feel extra confident on special occasions?
I’d love to hear your reccomendations
