So today I haven’t got a Cuba blog post, I wanted to do something different for a small change. I feel like the posts about my holiday can get a bit boring at times wich is why I wanted to do something a little different. And I really enjoy doing posts about make up so! I hope you all enjoy this post, and let me know in the comments what you though.
A few weeks ago I came up with this ‘summer make up look’ which I’m really liking at the Minuit so I wanted to share it with everyone. For me a summer look is all, about colour. Like a bright red or pink lip. And bright eye shadow. So that’s what this looks all about. I hope you enjoy.
Recently I’ve been avoiding wearing foundation. Mostly because the colour doesn’t match my skin because of my tan but also because I’m trying really hard to give my skin a little break from time to time. But instead of wearing foundation. I just go for a little bit of concealer under my eyes and around my forehead and cheeks. The concealer I’m using at the Minuit is the Rimmel London wake me up concealer. And I blend this out with my old damp beauty blender, which I need to get a new one of! Desperately…
Then just to give a little more coverage I put a layer of hello flawless powder from benefit. For me this is literally a life saver! It helps just give your skin the clear matte effect, which I really like. And I blend this out with this litttle brush, which I got from my number 7 beauty advent calendar last year.
Then for my eyebrows I’m still using my trusty goof proof benefit brow pencil. I swear that I go on about it all the time but I seriously love it so much. I start by brushing ,my brows into the shape I want, then fill them in, then brush the colour through. Hopefully that all made sense.
Then for a little bit of contour/bronzer. The reason I put it like that is because it is more of a bronzer but I use it as a contour. I mean it basically does the same thing. And I use a few different ones. Although my favourite would have to be the one out of the highlight and sculpt kit, which I got from Superdrug. As you can see though, it’s seen better days! Sorry about that.
Then I do my highlight. I start by using this Liquid one that I got from wish. Wish is this online shopping app which you download from the App Store. I’ll admit that when I ordered this I was a little bit doubtful that it would actually work, but honestly it’s amazing.
But just to give it a bit more definition I add a bit of my kiko highlight over the top. Well it’s a eyeshadow really, but I find it makes a really good highlight. And to blend these I again use my broken beauty blender, and a fan brush. And as you can see, my highlight has also most run out. Sad face! * And i couldn’t find my highlighter to get a picture of! Sorry!
Now for the eyes, I love doing eye make up! So for my coppery summer look i start by using the lightest colour in the pallet below. Then I just move up adding darker colours until it’s all blend through and creates a smokey eye look. I tend to but the dark brown copper colour under my eye, to give it more definition. Honestly this is my favourite look at the moment! Hands down!
For my eyeliner I use my usual Rimmel London one. This is by far the best. It’s so easy to use. I did get a mac eyeliner the other but I just couldn’t use it. It didn’t work for me.
I use two different mascaras. First I put on my number 7 volume one on, top and bottom lashes. Then my mac one over the top of that. And it creates amazing, fuller longer looking lashes. It makes your eyes pop out. Dramatic!
Lastly I put on a bit of lipstick. For this I use this number 7 one. It’s a nice mix between red and orange, so it’s very summery. And so I feel like it just completes the look.
Okayyy, so that’s my current summer look. I hope you all liked this post and sorry it went up a bit later than usual! See you later,
