PLAIN AND SIMPLE: MAKE UP


This year has been my year of discovery and experimentation with make up and I have finally discovered the products perfect for an everyday make up look for myself. I prefer to have a very natural look and i don't like to use too much foundation or tinted moisturiser to achieve this (that is just my preference). Below are a list of what I use to achieve the natural make up look in the the image above!

Products used:

Bobby Brown Tinted Moisturiser in Deep Tint
Bobby Brown Tinted Eye Brightener in Dark Bisque
Loreal Paris Glam Bronze Mineral in 102 Brunette
Smashbox Limitless Liquid Eyeliner Pen in Jet Black
Topshop Liner in Black
Collection 2000 Super Size Fat Lash Mascara
Eyelure Naturalites Lengthening Eyelashes
Vaseline Lip Therapy
Body Shop Born Lippy Lip Balm in Raspberry

Everyday Make up

How?

1. Apply Bobby Brown Tinted Moisturiser in Deep Tint over skin lightly and evenly. I tend to use a small dot on my forehead, both cheeks chin and a little on the bridge of my nose and then using a foundation brush, I blend it all over my face in circular motions.

2. Apply Bobby Brown Tinted Eye Brightener on the darker areas underneath your eye. This works as a good concealer to hide dark circles and works wonders for me. Using my my finger I pat this evenly for maximum coverage. (You can also you a concealer or blending brush to apply, but i just use my finger to softly pat it on)

3. Sweep a bit of Loreal Paris Glam Bronze Mineral to highlight your cheekbones - I only discovered this in my shade a few months ago and it is good if you love blushes and do not want to use them all the time in the day time. It is so subtle and provides a beautiful glow to the skin and can also be used as a contour!

4. I apply my eyelashes next, using a tweezers. You can snip you eyelashes to size and for an even more natural look, cut you eyelashes in half and apply them only to the outer corners of your eye.

5. Sometimes the eyelash glue shows up, so at this stage I take my Smashbox Limitless Liquid Eyeliner Pen and sweep it over my eyelid to create a small flick and conceal any white glue that shows up. (On days when i'm a little excited I bring the eye-liner further down into the corner of my eyes to create more of a dramatic look and a twist to my natural make up, like in the image above. And yes, most of the time I am pretty excited lol!)

6. I press my finger lightly in the tin of Vaseline Lip Therapy and sweep it over my lips so that acts as a base moisturiser for my lips and then apply the body shop lip balm over the top.

7. At this stage, my eyelashes a pretty securely dried so I can sweep a little mascara over, I use the Collection 2000 Super Size Fat Lash for this - I like using a cheap mascara in minimal amounts over my eyelashes because mainly because they are not real so I don't want to waste my more expensive ones on them and also this particular mascara is great for a natural look when used lightly - Cheap & Cheerful!

Hope you enjoyed! Love Tolu x
