1 makeup look - 3 ways ...
Lipstick can instantly change up a makeup look. I was lucky enough to have the blummin' lovely Jenna from the country girl bible (self confessed country bumpkin ;D) over to practice some makeup looks using different lipstick shades.
I wanted to create a glamourous evening look, not too over the top, and show how the same base can look different when applying three contrasting lipstick shades - nude, classic red and autumnal brown ...
Chanel Vitalumiere foundation in Cendre / Shell - £36 (one of my favourites, a buildable light to medium coverage that still leaves the natural skin visible and looking healthy and not 'caked').
L'Oreal true match, Vanilla - £6.99 (under the eyes - I really like this as an under eye cover up, it blends really nicely over foundation).
Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow gel in medium brown - £15
Benefit Gimme Brow - £15.70 (great for adding volume).
Eyes - Anastasia Beverly Hills contour palette - £39 (banana all over the lid then following with Havana in the socket for definition).
MAC tete a tint eyeshadow - £13 I think this is now discontinued but any matte peach / light brown eyeshadow will work.
Bobbi Brown long wear gel liner in Espresso - £19 (slightly less harsh option than black).
Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow - £49 Two complimentary colours for subtle contour and highlighting (I would highly recommend Charlotte Tilbury's powder and sculpt brush for this).
Clarins bronzer - £30 Applied to cheeks and temples.
Bobbi Brown blusher, Apricot - £19.50
Laura Mercier translucent powder - £29 - to set her make up.
Max Factor false lash mascara - £6.50
Red - For the striking red lip, I lined using Lancôme liner in Rouge Tulipe followed by Illamasqua in Maneater. Illamasqua's matte lipsticks are really long wearing and don't smudge. A great choice for bolder colours.
Brown - For this look I used NYX soft matte lip cream in Berlin, a brick / brown colour, perfect for autumn. Matte lipsticks can be drying to make sure you invest in a good lip balm ;)
So why not try a daring new shade the next time you are off anywhere special ... 💋
