At the beginning of the month, I attended my boyfriend’s brother’s wedding. I was rather happy with the make up I did for myself on the day, so I thought I’d do a post all about it. The photos above are of my make up from the day and all of the products I used.
I began with my eyes to prevent mistakes from ruining my base. First I applied Benefit Puff Off eye cream under my eyes and applied Benefit Air Patrol all over my eyelids and up to my eyebrows. I then started on my eyeshadow, using the Naked Smoky palette which is my favourite. I applied ‘Radar’ all over my eyelid, ‘Whiskey’ in the crease and popped ‘Dirtysweet’ in the middle, to brighten up the eyeshadow look. I used my favourite L’Oreal Perfect Slim eyeliner before applying Le Volume De Chanel mascara to my upper lashes.
I then applied my favourite lashes, Ardell Demi Wispies, with Duo Lash Glue and fused them to my own lashes with a coat of Le Volume De Chanel mascara. After doing my base, I applied Le Volume De Chanel mascara to my bottom lashes. For my brows, I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Auburn with a MAC 266 brush, finishing them off with L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper gel in Light/Medium.
I started off my base by applying the NARS Illuminator in Copacabana over my cheeks. I then applied Revlon ColorStay foundation in Sand Beige all over my face with a flat foundation brush, it is the perfect foundation for me when I have tan on and it makes my skin look flawless. I then applied Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer under my eyes and Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer around my nose, and blended everything in with my Real Techniques sponge. I finished off my base by applying Bourjois Healthy Balance powder all over my face.
My make up would not have been complete without these few finishing touches. First I applied my Clarins Aquatic Treasures bronzer to contour and also add a bit more colour to my face. I then applied my NARS blusher in Isadora, to add a splash of colour to my cheeks, this colour goes perfectly with a tan. Afterwards, I popped Becca Cosmetics Champagne Pop highlighter on my cheekbones, under my brows, on my cupids bow and the tip of my nose. To finish off the look, I used my all-time favourite lipstick, which is Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution lipstick in Bond Girl.
