Happy Monday! This week I have embarked on a challenge from the lovely people at NYX – I was challenged to do a ten minute makeup looking using NYX products. Firstly I was a little worried, under pressure always equals bad results for me but I thought I’d embrace it as it is certain to create entertainment for you all. I ended up opting for a slight smokey look which I hope you like!
NYX is one of my favourite affordable makeup brand, they really have some amazing treasures at amazing prices and the introduction of NYX products to NEXT stores here in the UK was a genius decision in my opinion. Previously I was ordering online or buying at trade shows and I really have amassed quite a bit of NYX in my makeup stash. However now I can go in store and try products rather than just second guessing shades online and looking for swatches on blogs. Let’s get onto the products used for this look.
- NYX Shine Killer
- NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium
- NYX Illuminator in Chaotic
- Cargo One Step Concealer in 02
- NYX Wicked Dreams Palette
- NYX Gel Eyeliner & Smudger in Scarlette
- NYX Cosmetics Propel My Eyes Mascara
- NYX Lip Pencil in Fuschia
- NYX Round Lipstick in Thalia
- NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige
I think super quick makeup is really achievable, this was the first time of me attempting it as I have never really timed myself before however next time I think I will be even better. I think multi use products really help, like the NYX Gel liner which I used on my brows as well as for liner. Also use your fingers, they get the job done faster. If you are a foundation wearer I would suggest applying and blending with fingers. I was actually really impressed with the Shine Killer, it’s a great primer and so silky and definitely a must have in my opinion. It is almost half the price of Benefit Porefessional and in my opinion better, it works both on dry and oily skin whereas Porefessional doesn’t merge well with dry skin.
