Beige to Red | Make Up LookMonday, January 27, 2014
I'm not much of a beauty blogger so please excuse the quality of some of these pictures - but I'm trying ay?!
It's always a good make up day when my winged eyeliner turns out looking great. I used my trusty Maybeline Eyestudio Gel Eyeliner to achieve the look. I love this eyeliner but I do find it a bit tricky when using it to get that perfect flick but apart from that there's nothing I could fault. Everyday eyeshadow is new thing for me and even now, I still don't generally wear shades on my lids from day to day, I'm all about the eyeliner. When I do wear eyeshadow, I usually opt for a neutral look and with the help of my new MUA Undressed Palette there's always plenty of shimmer to choose from - I mean look how pretty all of the colours are! They're super pigmented too, there is literally no way you can go wrong for the bargain price of £4. Eyebrows are another thing that I don't tend to tackle everyday but on special occasions when I decide I need more defined brows I grab for my MAC quad and use Concrete to lightly fill in my brows.
I'm a big fan of the bronzed look, it's a rarity that I wear blusher instead of my usual bronzer. For this look I used a light application of the Miss Sporty bronzer as I use this mainly for contouring my nose. The main product that I applied to my cheek bones is the gorgeous mineralized bronzer I got for Christmas that was included in a make up set from Superdrug, it's so pigmented and gives a gorgeous sheen of gold shimmer to the cheeks that isn't too overpowering.
For the lips, I opted for my favourite red lipstick, Rimmel Kate Lipstick in Shade 1 it's is such a gorgeous red and looks great with everything. I think it compliments the eyeshadow well even though you wouldn't necessarily pair the two together.
I'm thinking of doing a review of the MUA palette and maybe more make up posts, I'd love to hear your feedback on this idea!
