This is my favourite type of post to write about, a make up look. I love to try out different make up looks with different colours or products.
So I decided to write up my ‘glam’ make up look. I like this look because I feel like the colours all match really well together and it all just blends through nicely.
So I hope you enjoy reading …
Before doing any make up, I like to prime my face. For this I first of all, use a moisturiser. It doesn’t matter what moisturiser you use really just whatever one you want. Once that’s all Applied I then use a primer. My favourite primer is the one from benefit. A primer is really good for preparing the skin and making make up last for longer. So I would 100% recommend!
The first thing I apply to my face is the rimmel London match perfection foundation in the shade 100 ivory. I really like this foundation because of its coverage. It gives a full coverage but it doesn’t feel like you’ve got any product on your face. It’s feels really light. Some foundations that give a full coverage can feel really Cakey and I hate that type of feeling. Especially because it’s on my face. I like to blend this out with a normal beauty blender, you can pretty much get these from any where.
Then I put on my concealer. I use the Rimmel wake me up concealer. I really like how this brightens up the skin and conceals redness but I feel like it doesn’t do much for dark circles. So if any of you have any recommendations for good concealers for dark circles, let me know ! 🙂 Oh, and I also like to blend this with a beauty blender.
I like to set all of that with my powder. The powder I use is the benefit hello flawless powder in the shade ivory. I don’t use a lot, just a small bit to blend everything out. And for this I use one of my unicorn brushes. Which can I just say are like the best things to ever be invented. I actually got these for a Christmas present so I don’t know where there’re from exactly but I’m sure they won’t be that hard to find if you want some!
After that’s all done, I like to contour. For my contour I use the revolution London pallet of powdered contour. I much prefer a powdered contour to a creamy one. I feel like it’s much easier to blend. I put this on my cheek bones, forehead, chin and sides of my nose. And to apply this I use 2 different brushes. The small one and the slightly angled unicorn brush. I’ll put a picture of them below.
Then on my cheeks, on top of the coontour, I put a little bit of bronzer on just to give a bit more definition. I like to use the Rimmel London one in Shade 022 sun bronze. And to apply this I just use a basic puffy brush.
Then i like to do my brows. For my brows I use the benefit ka-brow kit in shade 03. And I don’t actually use the brush it comes with, instead I use a slightly thicker angled brush, which I’ll add into the picture below. I feel like the brush it comes with is quite slim and narrow so it’s hard to get the exact shape you want. I just find it much easier to do that with a slightly bigger brush.
One the brows are done, I like to do my eyes. This is my favourite part without a doubt! I start with eyeshadow. For this look I like use use a few different pallets. I start with the Mäc burgundy times nine pallet. In the crease of my eyelid I use the shade in the middle on the top row. Once that’s blended out in the crease, I use the shade 1st on the bottom line just to add some definition. Basically I put this in the outer corner of my eye, still in the crease. By doing this it just makes your eyes look so much bigger.
Then on the actual eyelid, I use the pinky shimmer shade from the revolution pallet. I love how this blends with the other colours. It’s super glittery as well which is a bonus!
Then on the bottom lash line, I use the shade ‘lumbré’ from the urban decay heat pallet. To apply this I use a thin angled brush. And for the rest of the eyeshadow I just use the brush that comes with the heat pallet.
To highlight the inner corner of the eye I use the first shade in the Mac pallet.
For eye liner I use rimmels exaggerate eyeliner in shade 001 100% black.
For eyelashes I really like to use false ones. And for this look I actually like to use these bambi lashes from primark. There only £2!!
And for the bottom lashes I use this ted baker mascara. It came in a gift set for Christmas so I don’t know if you can buy it separately or not. If you know, let me know!!
Then for my highlight I use 2 different ones. On my Cupid’s bow, brown bone, chin and nose I use Kylies highlight ‘kylighter’ in the shade French vanilla. Then on my cheeks I use this revolution London one. Which is a rose Gold sort of colour. Personally, I really like it. And to apply this I use the brushes in the picture below…
lastly, I do my lipstick. For this specific look I use the Kylie lip kit in the shade Leo. I love this colour so much! Although I do find that it dries my lips out a bit and none of her other kits do that to me. So that’s a bit strange. But I still love the colour!
And that is my ‘Glam make up look’! I hope you all enjoyed this post!
