Hi everyone hope you're all doing well. I've been meaning to do this post for a while after posting up a photograph of this look on my Instagram a few weeks ago! Now that winter is well and truly here (I can't believe its less than a month till Christmas now) I've been wearing much darker makeup looks and this is one I've been wearing a lot recently. Its perfect for christmas parties or those days when you just want to look and feel a bit more glamorous. So heres how I created this look:
Face: For this look I wanted a foundation that would last all day so I went for MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW20. I won't rave on about this product again as I'm aware I already have several times on my blog but this is my go to foundation! If you want to hear me ramble on about this foundation you can read my review here! Once my foundation was in place I used MAC Prep and Prime Highlighter in 'Light Boost' underneath my eyes in a triangle shape to brighten up this area. This is a relatively new product to me but I absolutely love the finish it creates. (You can read my first impression on this product here) It really does create that Kim-K highlighted look that so many of us lust after! To set my face makeup in place I used Rimmel Stay Matte powder in '01 Translucent'.
Eyebrows: For my eyebrows I used Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow in 'Blonde' for the inner portion and 'Soft Brown' on the outer portion. This is another product that has quickly become a part of my daily makeup routine and I've also done a review which you can find here..
Eyes: To create this berry eye look I used the Urban Decay Naked palette, again one of my all time favourites and have been featured heavily on my blog. I applied 'Toasted' all across the lid and 'Hustle' into the corners to give me eyes some definition. I then applied my trusty Collection 2000 liquid eyeliner, topped off with Benefit They're Real mascara on my top and bottom lashes. To finish off the eyes I applied Rimmels Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl in 'Nude' which makes your eyes look wide and awake making them appear much larger.
Cheeks: For the cheeks I used MACs 'Harmony' blush underneath my cheekbones, around my temples and underneath my jaw line.
Highlight: The highlighter I used in this look is the Sleek Contour Kit in 'Light'. This highlight is a gorgeous champagne colour with hints of gold in so it complimented the berry colours well.
Lips: For this look I chose Rimmel's Kate Moss lipstick in 107. My last blog post was all about the Kate Moss lipstick range and you can find that post here!
I hope you enjoyed this makeup look. I would have filmed this look for you all but I did this look while my camera was being repaired. Thankfully its fixed and I'm trying to upload on my YouTube channel regularly for you all! I've got a few makeup looks planned and I'm also going to vlog when I go to the clothes show in Birmingham; I'm going on Sunday the 7th and I'm so excited!
Please feel free to send me a photograph if you recreate this look - I would love to see!
