Hello everyone! Happy Sunday 🙂 This week has been a long one, but I’ve got an even more exhausting one ahead of me… How’s your week been?
Today I’m showing you a subtle, glowy, dewy make up look/tutorial inspired by the Victoria’s Secret Angels and the fast approaching season of Spring. December was filled with bold red lips and piles of glitter, and now I felt like it was time to take it down a notch. Lately I’ve been wearing this look for every occasion. It adds a little healthy glow back into your face (with a perfect flawless base) and gives your eyes a little twinkle.
I must admit I am a bit hesitant with showing my face but you can’t do a make up tutorial without a selfie, am I right? 😉 Anyway, onto the tutorial!
1. Base. I used the Mac Studio Fix Foundation which is really lightweight and dewy. It’s probably the best foundation I’ve tried – I’m not a big fan of foundation so I am super impressed with this and will hopefully buy the full size soon. I dampened the Nanshy 4-in-1 Marvel Makeup Sponge* and used the flat pointed bit to apply and blend it into my face. This way your foundation looks much more subtle and natural looking – great for people who don’t want to look and feel like they are caked in make up!
2. Cheeks. First I took some Cream Blusher by Maybelline and swept this onto the apples of my cheeks. Using a tapered fluffy brush I applied Contour into the hollows of my cheeks and temples. The key here is blending – you want to look like you’re naturally bronzed. Using my fingers I swept a little bit of the Highlight from the Sleek Contour Kit onto my cheekbones and on the bridge of my nose.
3. Eyes. Using a Champagne Cream Eyeshadow over my eyelid, I blended and set that in place with a shimmery light Gold Eyeshadow from the Hard Day Palette by Makeup Revolution. Then I curled my lashes and applied a good coating of the L’oreal So Couture Mascara, ensuring that I wiggled the brush to get natural fluttery looking lashes.
4. Lips. I picked out a random lip colour (this one happened to be MUA’s Lipstick in Nectar) and blotted it onto my lips, using a blending brush to buff it in, which creates a sort of just bitten look.
The Final Look:
I love how glowy it looks! The camera was so stubborn and no matter where I went the lighting would not help to show how lovely this look is. It’s a perfect way to slip in something Spring(ish) even though it’s still January…
What do you guys think of this look? Yay or Nay? More Makeup Tutorials or should I stick to the usual stuff?
Thanks for reading,
P.S. I’m feeling so cold lately. I found this comfy women’s gilet from Woolovers in Nude, and it’s on sale too. I think it’d look great under big coats and long knee high boots, but I’m not sure if it’s very me or not. Opinions please? How do you layer your clothes?
