Face of the Night #2

Hello my lovely readers!

Todays post is a look I came up with using the products I mentioned in a guest post on Ninas blog,  Ninas Bargain beauty. I was so excited to write my first guest post and it was so much fun to work with Nina! I love Nina's blog because she finds such great bargains online. She has an expansive directory of reviews and her reviews are so honest and informative with great swatch photos. This blog is definately worth checking out. 


And now onto the post! I wore this look on a recent night out. I went for a gold smokey eye and a red lip. I love wearing a red lip in winter, it warms the whole look up. Want to try this look out for yourself? Please follow the tutorial guidelines below.

Tutorial 

Face 

  1. Apply No7 Airbrush Away  primer onto the centre of the face
  2. Apply Match perfection foundation to the face with a Real Techniques Miricle Complexion Sponge. Use dabbing motions.
  3. Apply Mac Studio Finish Concealor to any blemishes.
  4. Use Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealor under the eye and extend up the top of the cheekbones, (do this after applying eyeshadow), down the bridge of the nose, to the centre of the forehead and to the cubids bow. Blend these out with the Real Techniques Sponge.
  5. Add Elf Pressed Powder to set the foundation and concealor.
  6. I used a Real Techniques Contour brush to add Benefit's Hoola bronzer under the cheekbones, down the sides of the nose, at the sides of my forehead and under my jawline. 
  7. Apply Sleek's Rose Gold Blush to the cheeks, above the bronzer and not to the apples of the cheeks.  




Eyes


  1. Define the brows with Sleek's Brow Kit. 
  2. Apply some Mac Studio Finish Concealor under the brows to create a crisp, clean line.
  3. Add Mac's Soft Ochre Paint pot to the eyelids as a base.
  4. Stick some sticky tape under the eye as a stencil for your eyeshadow. 
  5. Sweep Velvet Revolver (a cool toned beige/brown) from the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette into the crease of the eye with a large fluffy brush.
  6. Dab Honey Pot (shimmery gold) to the entire eyelid with your finger. Also add this to the inner, under eye. 
  7. Apply Cocoa Puff (dark shimmery brown) to the outer corner of the eye and into the outer V or the crease. Blend this outwards and into the crease. 
  8. Darken the crease with Sexpresso (Deep matte brown) with a small precise blending brush. 
  9. Apply Heaven (matte cream) as a browbone highlight. 
  10. Apply Essence Liquid Ink Eyeliner to the upper lashline and create a small wing.
  11. Add Catrice Precision Eye Pencil to the upper and lower waterline. 
  12. Add a mixture of Sexpresso (Deep matte brown) and Cocoa Puff (dark shimmery brown) under the eye and smudge the black kohl pencil into the lashline. 
  13. Apply Silk Teddy (frosted light pink) to the inner corner.
  14. Add Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and Primark False Eye Lashes.

Lips

  1. Apply Rimmel Moisture Renew in 470 Glam Plum Fulham to the lips. First use a lipbrush to define your lips and then apply the lipstick from the tube. Don't forget to suck your thumb so you don't get lipstick on your teeth later!!!
