So yesterday was Easter, and my one day off over the bank holiday, so I wanted to have fun with my makeup!
I started with my L’oreal Infallible Total Coverage foundation in Porcelain and applied with a dry Real Techniques Sponge as my base, and spot concealed with my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light. I also dabbed this over my eyelids and under my eyes to cover the bags from not sleeping much Friday and Saturday. After this was covered, I used MUA Professional Ultra Fine Loose Setting Powder in Translucent.
Eyes were the best bit of this look! This whole eye look was completed with Makeup Revolution Unicorn Love Palette. I as ever used the matte white (1) all over the lid, to help the other shadows glide on and for the colours to pop! After, I use the red tones brown in the top row (2) as a transitional colour in the crease of my eye. I blended this out then went in with the light purple shade which has a light shimmer all over the lid and into the crease. I had to go over this a couple of times as o wanted the colour to be really vibrant (3). I then use the darker purple shade that is a very shimmery shade all over the lid, again I applied a couple of layers to really make the shimmer noticible (4). (5) is where the fun begins, I used the dark turquoise shimmer in the outer corner of my eye, though the outer of the crease and under the lash line.
I then lined my eyes with Soap and Glory Supercat Eyeliner in Carbon Black and used MUA Amplification Statement Lash Mascara in Black to coat my lashes
The rest of my face, I used Benefit Hoola Bronzer to sculpt out my cheeks and to warm up my forehead and temple. I use a Real Techniques Core Collection Contour brush for this, and use upward motions on my cheeks to help them blend nicely.
For blush I used the nude shimmer in the Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice all over the apples of my chubber cheeks, then Makeup Revolution Vivid Bakes in Golden Lights to highlight my cheekbones, my nose and my Cupid’s bow, coz shining is fun!
My lips are the MUA Velvet Liquid Lipstick in Reckless. It honestly lasted so well through a roast dinner, mint sauce, chocolate cake, wine and tea! So I think I might have judged this harshly in the past.
Let me know of you liked this look, if you try it, drop me a tweet @amytoriabeauty of the outcome!
