Hey guys, so I thought I’d do another tutorial, this time on the glowy look I put together for work today!
I started my look with the Makeup Revolution 24hr Primer. I just find that my makeup won’t last a 9+hr day without it, I am super curious to find other affordable and good primers, so hit me up! So I would recommend a primer to start, especially if its a long day.
Next you are gunna need a foundation with a dewwy finish, I used Maybelline Fit Me foundation in shade 015. Another alternative might be the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. To blend in I used my real techniques sponge, but if you have a good foundation brush this would work just as well.
If you have dark circles, or like me its 6am, you might want to add some concealer under your eyes. Today I used Rimmel Match Perfection 2 in 1 Concealer in 010 Ivory. I used this as it has a dewy illuminated finish which is just what I was going for! Its of course all optional, but I also used this on the bridge of my nose and on my t-zone.
If like me, you have combination skin, you might want to set your concealer. Using a light hand, I applied MUA Professional Loose Powder in Translucent. For ultimate glow, just powder the areas that get greasy.
To contour, I picked a cool shade, but you can pick whatever suits you. I used the Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Palette in Light to define my cheek bones and top of my forehead. I then went over my forehead and temples with Benefit Hoola to warm it up slightly, but this can be emulated with other matte bronzers. The MUA bronzer I mentioned in my wishlist looks a pretty good match, and is only £4.
For the eyes, I used a light off white shimmer as a base, the one I used was from Makeup Revolution’s Love the Revolution Palette and then used the dark matte brown/khaki colour from the same palette. I blended this into the crease and outwards to the brow bone to soften the line. I then used the dark matte brown in the Fortune Favours the Brave Palette on the outer corner, and again smoked this out to the brown bone, along the lashline and through the crease. I also used the same colour along the waterline. To finish the eye-shadow, I went in with the original off-white shimmer to the centre of my eye inwards. I also used a dab of the bright white in the Fortune palette in the inner corner and under the eyebrow to give lift.
I used Benefit Gimme Brow in 5 to keep my Bushy AF brows looking natural. I think there are definitely cheaper alternatives to this, I’m on it guys, dont worry.
To line my eyes I used my trusty Soap and Glory Supercar Eyeliner to do a super thin line along the lash line. This was probably the first and last time I dont do a flick. I wasn’t a fan of this natural eye shape haha.
I actually forgot to put mascara on, if I hadn’t I would have used my MUA Amplification Statement Lash Mascara as I actually prefer it to my Benefit one.
For my cheeks, I wanted a peachy colour, but this is all preference and would work with most blusher shades. I used the coral blusher from the Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice. I tapped on the colour then blended as it is super pigmented.
To highlight I wanted to make sure the those areas I used powder on earlier are still glowing, so I used the Real Techniques Foundation Brush to apply Makeup Revolution Vivid Bakes in Golden Lights to highlight the cheek bones, bridge of my nose, middle of my forehead and cupids bow.
For lips, I decided on a dark Burgundy colour, because it matched my dress, my hair and my soul. Just playing. I used the New Look Pure Colour Matte Liquid Lipstick in 67 Burgundy. I’m gunna have to have to do a full review on this lipstick because its just bomb, honestly.
To finish use a setting spray, you can get illuminating setting sprays, so look out for those. I just used my standard Makeup Revolution Flawless Finish Setting Spray, because it was like £6 and it works really well. Since using it, I find my face makeup lasts the full 9+hrs.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial, if you have anything you want me to test out or review, please let me know!
