Tips to remember:
Don't be afraid to use a colour your not use to, it's good to try out things for a change and if you don't think it suits you or not comfortable wearing it.. have a face wipe at the ready! Always, always,always.. apply face moisturizer before applying makeup!
Foundation can often look cakey when the skin isn't moisturizer and it is very noticable.
The key success in having flawless looking makeup is too look after your skin! Don't try cover up all that redness and blemishes look after your skin so you won't have that problem!
Always use a base colour no matter what, something similar to your foundation, not too bright or pale. I used Ricepaper by Mac. It's by far my fave, most people opt for Brule but I feel its just too pale I can barely see it and I don't like that although I use it under my brows. I then applied Arena all over the lid lightly. Then lightly using a blending brush towards the brow with cork and blend really well. Using a smudge brush under the lower lashers apply a mix of arena and handwritten. Apply your eyeliner whatever way you want but I went for a little wing to make it a soft simple look. Using a contouring brush sweep a medium or dark bronzer across your cheeks and a highlighter above your cheek bone right underneath your eyes.
Try a nude lipgloss or a light pink with this look. I tried out a cherry lipgloss I bought from H&M awhile ago but still not confident yet too pull it off as it's such a statement colour. I love statement lipsticks/lipglosses they can really pull a look together if you wear them right! But for the occasion I was going to I wore a nude Mac lipgloss as I wasn't going anywhere fancy!
The Finished Look: A Simple soft look, perfect for everyday! Any colours you'd like to see let me know & I'll pull a look together!
