This is a look I came up with the other day when I was messing around with makeup (as usual).
I wanted to go for something quick and easy but still quite a glam look... I tried out some of my newer MakeupGeek eyeshadows and I must say I'm really impressed with them both as they're so wearable but not your everyday kinda shades. They both have olive undertones to them but they blend out perfectly and really make your eyes stand out without having too much colour there. I opted for a matte red lip to give that classic feel and I didn't even bother with any eyeliner but the false lashes still gave the eyes some impact so they still stood out.
I've fallen back in love with my MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme because it creates perfect defined lines and is completely waterproof. I still use the HD brow powder at the front just so it doesn't look too harsh and softens it up a little, I definitely want to purchase the Anastasia Beverley Hills Dip Brow Pomade next to see how it compares.
WHAT I USED
MAC Strobe Cream - used as a base to give some glow to the skin
Dior Forever Foundation '030' - a medium to full coverage foundation to give a flawless finish
Maybelline The Eraser Eye Concealer 'Light'- to conceal under the eyes to give a highlighted effect
Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder - to set the concealer and to brighten the area
MAC MSF Natural 'Medium Plus' - to set foundation and to keep it matte
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray - used at the very end to set my makeup into place
MAC Paint Pot 'Soft Ochre' - used as an eyeshadow base and to hide any discolouration on the lid
Makeup Geek eyeshadows 'Preppy' and 'Homecoming' - Preppy in the crease, Homecoming on the lid
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil 'Milk' - on the waterline to open up the eyes
CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara - used on lashes and to blend false lashes into real ones
HD Brows Professional Palette - used at the front of brows for a softer look
MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme 'Dirty Blonde' - from the middle to the tail of brows to define
False Lashes - I used these natural whispy lashes from ebay for a flirty look
Sleek Face Form Palette 'Medium' - the darker matte shade to contour the cheeks
MAC MSF Natural 'Medium Dark' - to bronze up the skin
MAC Pigment 'Vanilla' - on the cheekbones, brow bone and tear duct to highlight.. I love how versatile this product is
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush 'Frisky' - to add some colour to the cheeks
MAC Lipstick 'RiRi Woo' - a beautiful matte red shade which lasts for hours
Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Liner '540 Hollywood Red' - to line the lips
Maybelline Wet Shine Diamonds Lipgloss '15 Spoiled In Rubies' - added in the centre of the lips for shine
So that's my simple classic look... I love a good red lip and I think this look is great for pretty much everyone. You could also add eyeliner to darken it up a little if you wanna take this look from day into night.
