It’s kind of been a long long time since I put a make up post on my blog. I think it’s my fear of uploading hugely zoomed in photos of my face to the internet that holds me back. Because let’s face it, unless you’re really good with Photoshop these photos ain’t gonna be flattering. No matter how good the lighting is. Trust me.
Anyway I’ve braved the camera and went for what else but a smokey coppery eye and some deep red lipstick. It is getting to the festive season after all! AND just FYI it’s been snowing today. So I’ve decided to mix things up and go for a different base to my usual old products. I’ve used Urban Decay Primer and Smashbox Liquid Halo Foundation which is a bit heavier than what I’m used to but works well on camera. On my eyes, I’ve taken Urban Decay Naked 2 and applied Half Baked all over my lid. I’ve used Chopper in the crease and underneath and Snakebite to add a bit more contrast. Naked 2 is my favourite of all the Naked palettes for my colouring. On my lips I’m wearing my (very) well loved MAC Viva Glam I and a little Topshop Velvet Lips in Velveteen Ribbon as it gives a super matte finish. I do think a glossy lip would work really well with this look too if that’s your thing.
Let me know what your favourite look of the moment is!
