Hi, and welcome to the start of a new series on this blog. I’ve seen a few of these types of posts floating around, and in the form of YouTube videos too, so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon.Read More »
(I was about to say “Happy Saturday everybody!!”, then I realised that it’s Friday, and just because I have a day off doesn’t mean it’s the weekend…. result!)
Happy Friday everybody, I hope you’re doing well. For today’s blogmas, I felt like carrying on with the beauty theme from yesterday, and I’m going to be showing you guys my every day Winter makeup look, because I myself am the nosiest person ever, and I thought you might enjoy it! So without too much waffling (but let’s be honest, there will be a bit, it’s me), I’ll get right into it!
First, I use Rimmel’s Stay Matte foundation in the shade 100 Ivory as my base (I did moisturise before this, don’t have a go), and use my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (yes, I’m on the bandwagon) to cover my dark under-eyes and any horrific spots or red patches. Then, I’ll set this with the matching Rimmel Stay Matte powder in the shade 100 Transparent (like see-through, not like the hit Amazon series).
With the base of my face (weyhey) done, I’m going onto brows. At the moment I’m loving my Makeup Revolution HD Pro Brows kit which I reviewed yesterday on the blog (here’s the post), and using a small and flat angled brush from a set I bought from eBay a while ago, I’m going to chuck on some brows (there’s an image).
Next, onto eyes. In an everyday look, I don’t tend to put shadow on, which is just because I’m lazy and haven’t mastered the art yet. But what I lack in eyeshadow, I make up for in a shit ton of liner. So using my Primark P.S pencil black eyeliner I line both my waterlines (top and bottom) and smudge it out a bit (the reason why I do this is in this post).
Then, onto liquid liner. I’m currently using up the last of this Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner in Black 1, but I’m not a huge fan of it. If anyone could recommend some cheap but cheerful liquid eyeliners to try, it’d be greatly appreciated! So using this, I’m gonna do a heck of a wing (just my style).
In an every day look as well, I don’t tend to go overboard on the face defining and contour, etc. So I’m going to be chucking on a bit of bronzer from this Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt and Contour Kit (which I featured in my Summer Favourites), just to add some warmth to my face.
Then adding some blush to my cheeks with my MakeUp Revolution (you’d think I was bloody paid by them or something.. I promise I’m not) Dream Blush Palette (also featured here) to add some colour.
As I said, for every day, I don’t go overboard, so I won’t add highlight or anything too extreme, but I do like to have a little lippy, and today I was using my MUA Intense Colour Lip Liner (yes, all over my lips) in the shade Caramel Nougat, for a nice nude addition to a bit of a plain look.
Here’s the finished look! (Apologies for the horrific quality)
And there you have it, my Everyday Winter Makeup Look for 2016. I hope it wasn’t too average and boring. I’m thinking of creating a Christmas Party/Christmas Day Makeup Look to follow on from this, if you want to see that, please let me know! Have a great weekend, guys, see you tomorrow!
