With the sun finally making somewhat of an appearance over the last few days and the snow eventually seeming to disappear, it is fair to say that I do feel much more seasonal for this time of the year. With this in mind I really wanted to glam my everyday style of makeup up and with this also, put on a nice style of bardot top – which also, just so happened to be fleece-lined! So nice and summery but also super cosy at the same time!
For my makeup on this day, I wanted to achieve a look that I know I usually love to wear and also feel super comfortable in.
I was aiming for a natural yet flawless base that was dewy in appearance and just really lovely and healthy looking. I wanted an eye look that was fun yet slightly over the top and just really quite metallic looking.
Now obviously this makeup look isn’t one to be described as ‘oh so natural’ or simplistic now you come to mention it! Some may say that this look is just far too over the top for everyday wear. Although, I must say that I actually really like this style of look and don’t see any issue in wearing it during my day-to-day life. After all, makeup is here to be enjoyed and worn in whatever way you see fit. There are no rules only guidelines.
Since discovering that I absolutely LOVE the new COVER|FX Shimmer Veils, I thought it would be wise to pick up another fantastic shade whilst shopping in Birmingham last week with birthday money. I decided to go for the shade: Moonstone, as you may know, that I do have and already adore the shade: Amethyst. Moonstone is a slightly deeper more topaz shade in comparison, which actually compliments Amethyst perfectly when worn in combination and together.
For lashes, I definitely wanted to keep it quite ‘me’ and with this quite simple yet effective. As you may know already, I am not overly keen on false lashes, although would also say that I am getting more used to applying and wearing them. If you’re someone who likes to wear false lashes on a day-to-day basis, then by all means feel free to skip my mascara step and with this apply whichever pair of falsies that takes your fancy
Before applying my mascara of choice though – which is the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume, I HAD to first give my natural lashes a good curl with my trusty Charlotte Tilbury Eyelash Curlers. I curl my lashes each and everytime – before applying mascara, and definitely notice a good difference, so would certainly recommend this step!
As for lips, I often like to change and mix things up quite a bit – because there is no right or wrong when it comes to your choice of lip product! I, sometimes like to pair this style of glam (look) with a simple, classy nude or even a vibrant hot pink! For this look in particular, however, I really wanted to wear my new Giorgio Armani Esctasy Shine Lipstick, in the shade: 510, as I recently got this product for my birthday and was eager to try it out!
