Make Up My Face...


- The summer months have seen me discover, disguard and repurchase a whole host of new makeup products and I don't mean for the purpose of  a summer holiday or supremely hot days in the UK.
I have simply felt adventurous.


 As the kind of girl who always has her 'firm favourites' that she never really sways from, I have been rather excited to be trying new products. Some great, some rubbish.
But that's the fun of it non?

To begin, I use my Murad 'Skin perfecting primer' to even out my skintone and eradicate the redness from around my nose and chin.
I then use my foundation of choice at the moment, the Rimmel 'Wake me up' foundation in the shade 200 Soft Beige followed by a touch of my Collection 2000 concealer in medium 3 to cover any blemishes and dark circles underneath my eyes.
Secondly, I use the CCUK 'silk finishing' powder in 01 to set my foundation and concealer.
After using the finishing powder I comb through my eyebrows using a spooly and use my w7 'Brow bar' brow shadow quad to fill in my eyebrows using an angled brush.
I then run a brow pencil from MUA in 'dark brown' through the tails of my brows to make them a little more defined and shapely.
Next up it's onto the cheeks where I use the Bourjois 'Delice de Poudre' bronzer in the shade 51 to contour my cheeks and add warmth.
I follow on from this by using a Bobbi Brown 'Shimmer wash' eyeshadow in the colour 'Rose gold'.
If I am feeling like a highligh is needed a dab a bit of 'Virgin' from the Urban Decay naked pallette along the tops of my cheekbones.
After finishing prepping my face, I begin work on my eyes.
These days, I pat 'Naked' from the UDNP all over my lid and pull 'Buck' through the socket line and the outer portion of eyelid. I then use a liquid liner from MUA to line my upper lash line and use a black eye kohl to line my tightline and water line.
Next I pat on a small amount of black eyeshadow along my upper and lower lash line and blend it all together to create a smokey look. I finally put on the shade 'Half Baked' from the UDNP in the inner corners of my eye and sweeping it up to the middle of my eyelid.
Finally I use the W7 2 Step mascara to build volume and legnth into my lashes and apply a generous helping of my favourite lipstick MAC's 'Girl About Town' and use a splash of Lipcoat to prevent the colour from feathering and to keep my colour long lasting.

Although it may look like a long winded process to read, I have dramatically simplified my makeup in the past few weeks and I am enjoying a much fresher and simpler makeup look.
Love, Holl
