Hello beautiful people & happy Sunday!
I don’t know about you guys, but I love Sundays. You can be cozy and stay in all day, or you can run errands, or have brunch with friends – Sundays are just the best for so many lovely and relaxing things; including a lazy make up look.
This is a look I usually do on Sunday’s if I’m going to be leaving the house, and just want to highlight some of my natural features without all the contouring and winged liner (which I absolutely love, don’t get me wrong), but sometimes it’s just nice to have a “less is more” kind of day!
This look is super fresh and pretty, but also super fast if maybe you slept in for a little too long, or you’re a mom on the go – or if you’re like me and just want to have a little something going on to run errands and do laundry!
For my complexion I used: Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation in the shade 0.5 – to even out my skin tone Urban Decay Naked skin concealer in the shade fair/neutral – for blemishes and under my eyes Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow – I only used the bronzer from this duo to add a little colour to my face MAC blush in the shade Warm soul – To add a little flush and shimmer to my cheeks Laura Mercier loose setting powder – To make sure there’s no shine where I don’t want it
For my eyes I kept it super simple and only used a few products: L’oreal brow style definer in the shade brunette – To add some definition to my brows and fill in any sparse areas MAC Teddy eye kohl – Just smudged along the upper lash line to add the illusion of volume Covergirl Full lash bloom mascara & Clinique bottom lash mascara – To make my lashes look as fab as possible Rimmel Scandaleyes kohl kajal in 005 nude – I used this on the water line to make my eyes look bigger and more awake
Finally for the lips I used Tanya Burr’s lipgloss in the shade Chic to add a nice natural juiciness to my lips!
I absolutely love the way this look turned out, and really you could wear this any day of the week because it really emphasizes your natural beauty – but I particularly like it for my lazy and lovely Sunday’s!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!
Until next time my loves,
Valentine’s Day is this weekend, and wether you’re celebrating with your sweetie, spending the night with your girlfriends or going on a first day, I have a look that will make you feel fabulous and wow whoever you’re with!
I wanted to create a look that was playful and flirty without being too glam, because then it can really suit any outing!
I went for a more natural eye look with some glitter and winged liner to add that flirty feel, with some really natural wispy lashes to play it up just a little bit more. I wanted my skin to be glowing and flushed, with a nice rosy matte lip which is transfer proof if you’re going to be doing any smooching this v-day!
For my complexion I used:
Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in the shade 010 porcelain
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly for my blemishes
Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer in Fair Neutral for under my eyes
Laura Mercier loose setting powder in translucent to set everything in place
Burberry Earthy Blush in No.7 to contour
Hourglass Ambient Bronzer in Bronze Light to bronze up my face
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in fetching to add a really pretty flush to my cheeks
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone to add that glow I was going for on the high points of my face
For my eyes I used:
L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer in Brunette to fill in my brows
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani palette for shadows – I used baby all over the lid, with anaheim and punk through the crease and lower lash line, then I pressed a bit of pop glitter all over the lid to add some sparkle
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper for my wings
CoverGirl Full Lash Bloom mascara for my top lashes
Clinique bottom lash mascara for the bottom lashes
I used some of the Tanya Burr Limited Edition false lashes that came in her advent calendar and unfortunately don’t have a name
Finally for lips I used the new Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip colour in the shade devotion which is a gorgeous dusty rose that just added the perfect pop of pink for this look!
I’m so happy with how this look turned out, and I’ll definitely be re-creating this on Sunday for whatever Carmen and I decide to do!
Let me know what you’re planning to do this v-day!
Until next time my loves,
