It is taking a lot in me to even post this on my blog, I am as it happens very camera-shy. But, here is a look that I created a while back including all shades from the Naked 3, I will try my hardest to show the steps and the order, but this is my first time doing a post in this style so don’t be too harsh on me! I will be focusing on the eye makeup but I am also showing you my face makeup!
Firstly, I always prime my face usually after putting a moisturiser on. The one I am using is ‘Porefessional’ by Benefit, (this is my absolute favourite primer).
Then it is time for foundation, my favourite for summer is, I guess, called ‘The Foundation’ by Topshop, in the shade 1.0. This is a very lightweight, water based foundation and I like to blend it in with a Real Techniques ‘Complexion Sponge’, this prevents the streaks that can be caused by a brush when using a lighter foundation.
Next I use the Rimmel ‘Match Perfection’ concealer in the shade 010 Ivory and I also blend this in with my sponge! I am not going to put this in but I set all my face with the Maybelline ‘Matte Maker’ powder in the shade 30 Natural Beige, using a fluffy brush, which is usually my Real techniques multi-task brush.
Then I do my cheeks. The bronzer I use is ‘Hoola’ and the blusher is ‘Rockateur’. These work really well together as they are both very warm toned.
Then it is eyebrow time! I use the Collection Eyebrow Kit in the colour ‘Brunette’ and then I set it with the gel that comes in the Kit, it also includes a brush which I am using in the pictures above.
Time for the actual eye makeup! I use the first matte shadow you can see in the picture all in my crease, I worked this in and built it up too create a soft and deep crease look to start. Then, I added the fourth shade you can see to intensify this look.
Then I used the darker shades and put this more on the outer part of my crease. I decided for this look I wanted a sharp cat line so I folded up a round cotton wool pad, put makeup remover on it and swiped in the direction up to the end of my eyebrow, this cleaned my look up perfectly.
I added a small faint wing, using a dark brown eyeshadow and an angled eyeshadow brush. I really like this part of the look!
I always think mascara finishes a look, so I am adding my favourite one by.. funnily enough Benefit, this is the one called’They’re Real’. It is really good with lengthening and boosting, love it!!
Forget everything else! Highlighter is my favourite step during applying my makeup!! This is the highlighter that I have been absolutely loving for forever. It is a liquid, and gives a pink satin colour which is really metallic and gleams like the gates of heaven. I just blend it with my fingers!
So this is my look, I actually kind of enjoyed taking you through all of this, sorry for all the cringe-worthy photos of me. If you liked this post, please let me know so if there is a next time I do one of these I can get more prepared, haha!!
