Simple Eyes and Bold Lips Makeup Look

It’s been a little while since I last done a makeup look post so I thought I would quickly talk you through one I created recently. This was quite a ‘simple’ makeup look to create, in the sense I didn’t use 8 different shades of shadow and 4 different types of blusher! Sometimes makeup looks get a little complicated so it is always refreshing to tone it back down a bit. However for once, I actually used foundation so hopefully that adds a more polished finish to the look.

Let’s start with eye makeup first as that is always the most complicated, and lengthiest process. Well for me anyway! Here is a list of products I used:

The first thing I always start with is brows. I shape my brows using the DipBrow and fill in any gaps. Then I fill in the brow lightly using the brow power. Finally I set it all with the Brow Gel, that way all the brow hairs are n the direction I want them in and the brows look fuller. Next I clean up under the brow using concealer. I use Anastasia Concealer 2.5 which is a creamy ‘blendable’ concealer which is a quite a few shades lighter than my skin tone so perfect for highlighting. I apply with a brush and blend out with my finger tips. Next I set and highlight under the brow, here I used Anastasia shadow in Fresh. Then I apply primer potion over my eyelid and apply UD Nooner and Anastasia Bengal to the crease to define it slightly. I deepen it further by using a touch of UD Blackheart. For lid colour I opted for UD Nooner. Under the lash line I smudged in the Avon eyeliner pencil and smoked it slightly using UD Blackheart. I also highlighted the inner corner slightly using Illamasqua Furore. I added a thin line of liquid eyeliner, filled in my waterline with pencil liner and popped on some mascara and false lashes and ta da, eye makeup completed. It always sounds more complicated than it is.



Now onto the face and lip makeup. This bit is definitely much quicker than the eye makeup and requires much less products! Find a list of all the products I used below:

Some people like to contour and highlight after applying foundation but if I am going for a slight contour/highlight look I like to opt for doing it before my foundation. The first thing is apply a light shade of concealer under my eyes, on my forehead and other areas I’d like to highlight on my face. Usually for concealer I use Anastasia in shade 3.0 but for this look I went for 2.5 as I was using foundation as well. Next I used my favourite cream contour product, the Artist of Makeup contour stick. This blends so well and is such easy application. You can get a really blended subtle look as well as a sharp contour if that is what you prefer. I blended the contour and highlight in by applying foundation on top and buffing it in well. In order to not disturb the contour and highlight I buff over those parts lightly. Next I applied my favourite highlighter, Bobbi Brown Sandstone. Finally I applied my favourite blush of 2014, Exposed, which is a very pretty nude pinkish colour on my skin tone. The last step to any makeup look I create is of course the lips. For this look I wanted to go for something bold as the eye makeup was not too elaborate so I decided to opt for a deep strong red. I lined my lips using MAC Burgundy and then filled in my lip with Tom Ford Black Orchid which is a which is a dark blackish  red. I then added a little more moisture and red back in by going over with Sheisedo RD304.

That is it for the look today, I really enjoyed creating it as it was super quick and I love the finish foundation gives. I don’t have to worry about making sure my concealer is completely blended into my skin as the foundation ensures it is. I also done a foundation review here recently if you’d like to read. Let me know if there are any looks in particular you’d like me to create any looks for you all. Speak soon, Tanzina x
