1 makeup look - 3 ways ...

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 ...

Base -

Bodyshops Vitamin C serum - £16

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.

Ardell demi wispie false eyelashes - £3.45

Max Factor false lash mascara - £6.50

Charlotte Tilbury lip liner Pillowtalk, lipstick Penelope Pink - £16 & £24 charlottetilbury.com

Nude lips - For the first look, I applied Charlotte Tilbury lip cheat liner in Iconic Nude followed by Penelope Pink lipstick. These lip liners are fantastic, really long wear and come in great colours, especially the nudes and pinks.

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 ;)
