It’s the silly season, people! Packed with celebrations and unusually busy for most of us, it’s also the time we want to enjoy the warm nights and see family and friends.
With more sparkle in the wardrobe it’s fun to up the makeup game a little this time of the year and for special occasions. I just created this bold yet romantic look for a white magazine editorial, which is perfect for the holidays! I have received many requests on how to achieve the look. Now I will share a little tutorial along with the best cruelty free products I have used to create this dreamy makeup look.
I hope my tips will help keep you looking fresh as a daisy in these times of less sleep and more Champagne:
- Base: A great high coverage but glowing base is Jane Iredale Glow Time BB Creme. Only a tiny amount warmed into the skin with your fingers achieves instantly flawless skin. Use Active Light Concealer by Jane Iredale to brighten the under eye area.
- Cheeks: Use a soft bronzer and sweep underneath your cheek bones with a contour brush. Ere Perez Pure Rice Powder Bronzer is great to warm up the complexion. Blend Jane Iredale Blush in “Whisper” on the apple of the cheek.
- Highlight: RMS Beauty Living Luminizer creates that extra highlight on top of the cheek bones, along the bridge of the nose and on the cupids bow of the upper lip.
- Brows: The Bitty Brow kit in Brunette fills in any gaps in your lashes and the clear wax holds them in place.
- Eyes: I used Jane Iredales Getaway Eyeshadow kit using “Silence” as a Base colour and adding some “Tea On The Porch” for golden/copper shimmer. Jane Iredale Mysstikol in “Dark Topaz” creates a soft smokey eye, by running the liner along the lash line on top and bottom and using the light side in the inner corner as highlight. Apply a few layers of Longest Lash “Black Ice” Mascara to finish of the look and create some extra definition.
- Lips: A beautiful deep berry just adds the right amount of glamour to the look: I chose ILIA Beauty “Femme Fatale” which is very rich in pigment and can be used as a stain.
