All girls have a daily routine they apply before heading out of the door in the morning.
This is a short summary of our normal daily natural makeup look. We have done two different looks here, Ella’s is first:
1. I begin with a clean face, moisturised and toned.
2. Using foundation, I covered my entire face and blended it into the neck. It’s a medium-coverage mineral foundation, so it doesn’t look too heavy. I like to mix two shades of foundation, one light and one darker to make sure I adjust the foundation to my true skin tone. I added a bit of bronzer right below my cheekbone to add a bit of contour to my face, and a natural peach blush (this is great for day-looks) right above the bronzer. Half-way look below!
3. OK, so we have got the base done. Now I move on to the eyes. I covered my eyelids with a base that was a shimmery beige shade. On top of that I added a soft bronze shade into my crease, to emphasise the colour of my eyes. To add a bit more depth to my eyes I put a bit more darker brown eyeshadow on top of the bronze in my crease, halfway through the eye. I add a bit of gel-liner onto my waterline and smudge it a bit (just two-thirds the way, not entirely up to the inner corner of my eye). I just add a good coat of mascara on my top and bottom lashes. For my lips, I lightly used a natural lip pencil without going over my natural lip line. I smudged a bit of a nude lipstick on top and voila! the look is finished. Here are a couple of shots of the finished look and a closeup of my eye. 🙂
1. As usual, I start with a clean, moisturised face.
2. My base is as follows. My biggest problem is the circles around my eyes so I use concealer around my eye area in a lighter shade than the rest of my face. I use concealer the same shade as my skin tone around my mouth, and a shade lighter down the bridge of my nose. I apply blush to my cheeks, right below my cheekbones (I don’t apply blush on the apples of my cheeks too much). To top it off, I apply highlighter with a soft shimmer in a C-shape, starting from my cheekbone and going up to the arch of my eyebrow.
3. Now the finishing touches. I apply liquid liner to my upper lids, and I make the flick at a point higher than the natural corner of my eye. (This gives a false effect of the outer corner of my eye being more raised). I then apply two coats of mascara to my upper eyelashes only. I finish off the look with some tinted lipgloss. There you go 🙂
And there it is!
Do tell us what you think 🙂
Until the next post, stay fab! xx
