What's On My Face #5

This is the makeup look that I wore on a cinema date with a gal pal. We were going to watch Maleficent so we both felt pretty inspired to wear a red lip! I decided to go for a matte red lip and matte eyeshadow that I balanced out with a dewy complexion.

To prime my skin I used the Bare Minerals Prime Time Foundation Primer, which always gets the job done in terms of makeup longevity and for my base I used the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation in 40 Beige for quite a dewy and natural finish. I used the Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach under my eyes to counteract dark circles and on any blemishes. I then lightly powdered down my t-zone with the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder in no. 40.

The eyeshadow I applied was from the HD Brow Kit in Foxy; I used the shade Warm Brown all over the lids and Dark Brown in the crease. I then used the Chanel Automatic Liquid Eyeliner in Black on the upper lash line and applied lashings of my Clinique High Impact Mascara. I filled my brows in with the Eylure Brow Pencil in Dark Brown and locked them into place with the Eylure Brow Tame & Define Wax.

To contour my face I went for the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Deep and to highlight and further bronze my cheeks I used the Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer.  

Finally, for the lips I went for an Amelia-enabled purchase that’s one of my favourite lip products of the moment – the Sephora Cream Lip Stain in no. 1 Always Red. It’s a gorgeous matte red colour that’s opaque in one swipe, doesn’t require a lip liner, feels so comfortable on the lips and is really long lasting. I’ll be writing a detailed review on this soon and for outfit details from this look check back this Friday!
