What's On My Face #6

This is a party makeup look I created for a night out on the town! I wanted to for a strong brow, shimmery eyeshadow, winged black eyeliner, lashings of mascara and quite a pinky/nude glossy lip.

To prime my skin I used the Benefit Porefessional Primer to ensure my makeup lasts all night and for my base I used the Chanel Perfection Velvet Lumiere foundation in 40 Beige for quite a matte 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.

I primed my eyelids with the KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in no. 5, which is a gorgeous icy purple/brown/taupe colour. For the rest of the eyeshadow I used the Naked palette – I swept the shade Toasted all over the lids and used Hustle in the socket to add depth. I used the Maybelline Gel Liner in Black on the upper lash line and then applied lashings of my CODE Beautiful Volumising Lengthening Mascara. I filled my brows in with the Eylure Brow Palette in Dark Brown and locked them into place with the Maybelline Sculpting Brow Mascara in Dark Brown.

To contour my face I went for the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Deep and to highlight I used The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer. In place of blusher I used the Collection Mosaic Shimmering Glow Powder on the cheeks.

Finally for lips I went for my favourite pinky-nude glossy lip combination of the moment – I lined my lips with the Maybelline Colour Sensation Lip Pencil in no. 630 Velvet Beige, which matches my natural lip colour exactly. I topped this with the gorgeous Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lacquer in High Society, which is the perfect pinky-nude shade for my skin tone – absolutely loving it at the moment!
