So before I begin, I’d like to get one thing straight. I’m very much a ‘brows and base’ kind of girl. My foundation and the shape and colour of my eyebrows and something that I focus on mostly as personally, I think it gives quite a natural and minimal make up feel.
On occasion, I am very much known to jazz up my eyes with a touch of liquid liner and maybe if I’m feeling very sophisticated I would attempt a cheeky red lip, but on a day to day basis, my brow kit and foundation are all I need.
To form my base, I prep my skin before using my YSL Touché éclat foundation, I buff this all over my face with a real techniques expert face brush until I’m happy with the converge. I then go in with the collection lasting perfection concealer if my skin isn’t looking too fab. And now it’s time for the contouring (skip this step if you already have beautifully prominent cheek bones *sigh*). I just take my sleek contour kit, suck in my cheeks and try to create the illusion of more chiseled features by tracing the hollows of my face with the brush and the tan coloured powder. I then highlight the tops of my cheekbones, bridge of my nose and Cupid’s bow with the highlighter in the kit.
Next, I move onto my brows. I take the medium brown and the darker brown colour in my brow palette and mix the two together before creating a brow shape that I personally think, frames my face.
I then like to add a tiny bit of definition to my lashes, for this I firstly curl them with my Eyeko eyelash curler, before adding either the Eyeko lengthening skinny brush mascara or the Revlon grow luscious mascara.
Now, if I’m not in a complete hurry I’ll add some lipstick. My current favourites are-
Revlon (shade- mauve it over)
Topshop (shade- innocent)
Mac (shade- plumful)
And that’s how i construct my face! I hope you enjoyed.
lots of love
