Concealer in 15 (not shown)|Eylure Urban Tropics Lashes in Rough Utopia (Not Shown)

Sometimes I hate the fact that the camera smooths and blanks out some of the make-up which is so vibrant in real life, but the show must go on and here I am showing you my face inspired by the beautiful Kylie Jenner – yes I am aware I look nothing like her!

Base

Now I am very pale compared to Miss Jenner so getting that warm glow is a little bit more difficult and the camera wiped out all the careful contouring I did; however for foundation I used the Rimmel Wake Me Foundation in Light Porclain which has light reflecting particles which on paler skin can look a little like you’ve smothered glitter on your face so don’t let people get too close; however it has a good coverage and blends easily. To concealer I used the Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer in 15 which helps hide dark circles and blemishes with a creamy texture which blends like a dream.

I can’t be bothered to spend hours on my contouring so I applied some of Illamasqua’s Cream Pigment in Hollow which is the perfect contour colour for paler girls. Kylie is not the biggest blusher fan so instead I attempted to get that warm glow she seems to effortlessly have by using the NO7 Skin Illuminator.

Eyes

Recently there has been a lot of shimmery gold on her eyes so I immediately went with my Inglot Quad using 11 all over the lid and 401 in the crease with a little bit of 330 to highlight underneath my brows. It’s a super simple shadow look which is right up my street for the coming autumn months. For liner I used the MAC Gel Liner in Blacktrack just to create a thin band for the false lashes to sit on and with a tiny flick to give the whole look a slightly more feline feel.

Two coats of Rimmel Wake Me Up Wonder’full Mascara on both my top and bottom lashes before popping the Eylure Urban Tropics Lashes in Rough Utopia which are a choppy lash which adds a slight grunge look to the whole thing.

Finishing Touches

Lips was an easy choice; MAC Lip Liner in Whirl all over the lips without over drawing them because I look like a clown every time I try. I love this lip colour because I think it’s perfect for every season and occasion.

I will never look like a Victoria Secret Model, I don’t have washboard abs or great boobs and I have accepted this fact, however there make-up is pretty easy to re-create and you can do it without caking your face in make-up.

Base

I am wearing no foundation for this look luckily I have been working on location recently and the sun has given me a healthy glow so i’ve only had to slightly conceal under my eyes using the Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer in the shade 15 which conceals but also slightly brightens. On my cheeks I wanted to enhance the sun glow so used a bronzer in replace of blusher and opted for the MUA Mosaic Bronzer which warms up my complexion.

Eyes

As a base I used the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Permanent Taupe to create a wash on the lid and then to brighten the inner corner I patted Illamasqua Shadow in Stealth which is a gorgeous matte cream colour. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a VS Model go down the runway without a black liner on the lid so used my Rimmel Scandaleyes Liner and added a flick. Then for the lashes I used my Clinique High Impact Mascara on both the top and bottom lashes.

Finishing Touches

I’m going through a phase of hating lipstick so wanted something that was pretty light on the lips and the No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Day Dreamer delivers with a sheer slightly frosted pink which hydrates the lips.

MAC Painterly|NARS Tinted Moisturiser|Sleek Contour Kit|Clinique High Impact|Maybelline Fit Me!|Carmex|No7 Skin Illuminator.

Summer calls for less make-up on a day to day basis, I don’t know why it just does and these products really haven’t left my face since the sun started shining.

Base

If I wear a base at all I will reach for my NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser mixed with the No7 Skin Illuminator which adds a very subtle glow from within look to your skin. The concealer that I can’t stop reaching for is an old classic the Maybelline Fit Me! it’s a perfect colour match, not to thick but still creamy enough to glide on seamlessly. To contour out those cheekbones I am loving the Sleek Contour Kit its not too muddy on my fair skin and blends easily. The Contour Kit also comes with a highlighter which adds a little more shimmer to the face without letting you look like a glitter ball.

Finishing Touches

MAC Painterly Paint Pot as a base all over the lid, to get rid of any discolouration on the lid and then lashings of mascara, i’m currently using the Clinique High Impact Mascara which adds a lot of length to the lashes. Due to laziness i’ve just been applying Carmex to my lips to keep them moisturised.

Do you wear more or less make-up in the summer?

My Current Go To Face|FOTD

L’Oreal Volume Million Excess Mascara|Inglot AMC Bronzer |17 Blusher |Collection Extreme Liner|Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick|Maybelline Colour Tattoo Leather Effect |Maybelline The Eraser Eye Concealer |Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation.

This has been my go to make up look recently I love the colour combination of the teal on the eyes and the mauve pink on the lips.

Base

Currently using up my Maybelline Fit Me! foundation as it’s a little too dark for my skin tone but it gives a great medium coverage and blends really nicely I just wish they had it one shade lighter. Too conceal I used my Maybelline The Eraser Eye; this is an amazing high coverage concealer which blends really well and hides bags as well as blemishes. I know a lot of people don’t like the sponge but it doesn’t bother me at all. On my cheeks I have an old favourite 17 Blusher in Plum Puff a classic pink for the cheeks that brightens and adds colour paired with Inglot AMC Bronzer in 76 this is a great matte bronzer for contouring.

Eyes

The eyes are super simple; as a base I used the Maybelline Colour Tattoo Leather Effect in Creamy Beige which gives the eyeliner something to grip of but also gives a subtle sweep of colour on the lids. The eyeliner is this amazingly inexpensive felt tip liner from Collection, I love the teal colour as it really makes the eyes pop. For mascara I used the L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Excess which is a great mascara for both length and volume with the added plus of being waterproof.

Finishing Touches

On my lips is my current favourite lipstick Rimmel Vintage Pink it’s a Moisture Renew formula so is super hydrating and creamy packed full of pigment – think M.A.C Cremesheen. It’s more of a mauve than a pink but it compliments the teal so well.
