Ah it feels like a long long time since I last blogged, it was only Monday, but this week has seriously messed with my sense of time ahah! Anyway, I've not done an FOTD in rather a long time, so after having a play with my makeup the other day, I though i'd share it with you lovely lot. Two things though; no idea what my hair is doing in any of these pictures, and excuse the break out I have going on.
So basically, with this look, I was working around the gorgeous MAC eyeshadow Fig- going for a slighly unseasonable purple theme. It is the lovelies plumy purple shade and I love the way it turned out! I think it really brings out my eyes and is perfectly dramatic.
I'll talk you through how I created this look. I began by smoothing the Rimmel Fix and Perfect primer all over my face. I then swiped the Seventeen Phwoarr paint under my eyes and over my blemishes. Next step was to dot my Rimmel Match perfection foundation onto my face and then blend in using my trusty Real Techniques Expert face brush. Onto contouring, I used the Bourjois bronzing primer to define my cheekbones, and also over my temples and across my jaw line. I then swept my favourite Collection Shimmer shades (which isn't actually shimmery at all) over my cheeks. I then took MAC soft and Gentle over the high points of my face. To keep thing matte I dusted Maybellines Fit me! powder all over.
So onto my eyes; I fist took my sample of the original Urban Decay Primer potion all over my lids to create a base. Next I took MAC Fig all over my lids, working to build up the colour. Then I buffed the shade Regal from the Sleek Au naturel palette into my crease and the outer corners. Next I used a little bit of Blackheart from my Naked3 palette to line my eyes and wing them out slightly. I finished with a generous flick of the Maybelline Rocket volume mascara on my top and bottom lashes. I forgeot to photograph the products (doh!) but I used the MUA brow palette and Maybelline Brow drama to do my eyebrows.
On the lips I used my Perrie lipstick from the Collection Little Mix range, and added a little bit of Rimmel's Dark night water- opps! on top.
I'm definitely going to be sporting this look in the evening sometime, it was really nice having time to play about with my makeup, not having to do it in ten minutes flat before rushing into the car!
What do you think of this look? Have you been getting creative with your makeup lately?
