My Go To Makeup

My Go To Makeup
Recently I’ve been wearing the same general look, simple eyes with a bold lip.  I may have got slightly carried away with this face, it could definitely be replicated with less products but I was having one of those days where I decided to wear all the makeup!  This is quite a full coverage makeup look.

Base

I used my Smashbox Photo finish primer*, followed by No7 Beautifully Matte foundation.  For concealer I used mac Pro Longwear concealer on my blemishes and NARS Radiant Creamy concealer under my eyes.  I set under my eyes with elf High Definition under eye setting powder.  I did my eye makeup before I finish setting the rest of my face using bareMinerals Hydrating Mineral Veil.

Eyes

I primed my eyes with mac Painterly Paint Pot, then I took Maybelline Color Tattoo* in Permanent Taupe all over the moving part of my lid and blended it out into my crease. For my crease colour I took Naked 2 from the Urban Decay Basics* palette.  I used the eyeshadow Smoked from Almay all over my lid to intensify the colour a wee bit more.  Then I took Walk of Shame, from the Basics palette, from my crease up to my brows and Venus as my highlight just under my brows and my tear duct area.  I lined along my top lash line with Rimmel’s Scandal Eyee Kohl pencil* in black and then smudged it out, dragging it past the end of my eye and I just used what was left on the smudger brush along the edge of my lower lash line.  For my eyebrows I used an eyebrow powder from Sigma in Scarlett and set them with Benefit’s Gimme Brow* in light/medium.  I used two mascaras.  Physicians Formula Organic Wear on my top lashes and Maybelline The Rocket Volum’* mascara on the top and the outer edge of the bottom.

Cheeks

I contoured my cheeks using NYX blush in Taupe, from Benefit I used my Dandelion blush* on the apples of my cheeks blending it back towards my ears and for highlighter I used the Bourjois Java Rice Powder along the tops of my cheeks.

Lips

I lined my lips with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on lip liner* in Venom and then I used my lipstick in Vivid Violet* from Smashbox.
I set my face with my Caudalíe Beauty Elixir*
