Today’s post is about the makeup that I wore in my recent Wedding lookbook video.
It was very much a peachy themed look and if you are looking for a long wearing makeup look I’d defo recommend starting with Illamasqua Skin Base foundation (I wear shade 04). I have lots of freckles so I like it because it’s high coverage and evens out my skin tone and provides a really good base for my makeup. It’s a good foundation for normal and combination skins. If you’re dry like me, you’ll need to use a good moisturiser beforehand. I use Oilatum Natural Face Repair Cream because my face is dry
as a desert.
I concealed with my favourite Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (I wear Custard)- this is not only good for under the eyes but also blemish concealing. I like it because it’s quite moisturising and not drying. It’s also really easy to blend which is a must for me.
I popped MAC Springsheen and Milani’s Luminoso on my cheeks. Recently, I like mixing my blushes together as when I blush I’m never just one colour. I like creating a bit of depth to the cheeks with two blushes.
I then cracked open my current eyeshadow palette Lorac Unzipped Palette and used a mix of Unattainable, Uncensored, Unspoken and Unreal on my lids. These shadows are highly pigmented so a little goes a long way and they are buttery and super blendable. This is my second Lorac palette and I’m a total convert.
I curled my lashes, wacked on a whole load of Maybelline the Falsies and a pair of false lashes. I wanted my lips to look a fuller so lined then with my faithful Boots No 7 Lip liner in Nude, followed by Limited Editions lipstick in Melba Blush and Tanya Burr’s Picnic in the Park gloss.
I think this is one of my favourite makeup looks that I’ve done recently. I am flirting with the idea of doing makeup looks on my Youtube Channel but don’t feel brave enough yet!
