A new year has arrived and it provides us with a fresh perspective and different priorities in life. This is a time for reflecting on the old and focusing on the new, learning from past mistakes to implementing change. A year of new beginnings to fulfilling your hopes and dreams. We have the opportunity to explore new goals and plans, this could be buying your first home, travelling to Europe or anywhere else exciting, spending more time with your loved ones, taking time out for yourself or even a possible career change. There is no better time than the present. May this year be filled with so many great opportunities and milestones for you all. What an adventure this will be.
Now let’s talk about makeup and the products that were used for this look:
Apply Prep + Prime Fix + Spray (MAC) all over face
Charlotte's Magic Cream (Charlotte Tilbury)
Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado (Kiehl’s) under the eyes
Face & Body Foundation (MAC)
Add Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 (MAC) to any areas that you are wanting more coverage
Pro Longwear Concealer (MAC) under the eyes
Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder in Light Plus to set the foundation (MAC)
Hoola Bronzer (Benefit) to contour
Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul (MAC)
Cream Colour Base in Pearl (MAC) which creates a soft highlight. I put this on the high point of my check bone with my finger or you can use a sponge
Lastly to intensify the highlight I applied Mary-Lou Manizer (The balm).
Did you know: The Mary-Lou Manizer is such a beautiful highlighter for fair skin. I find some highlighters can look too golden or bronzed on my skin. Another great highlighter for fair skin is Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle from MAC. However, when I am tanned I can wear other beautiful highlighters like Iconic London’s liquid Illuminator in Original and Jaclyn Hill’s Champagne Pop by Becca.
Apply Pro Longwear Paint Pot (MAC) all over the eyelid
Then use Soft Brown shadow (MAC) in the crease
In the outer corner of the eye apply Swiss Chocolate (MAC) shadow
Add Tan Pigment (MAC) on the eyelid
Then to intensify, I used Vanilla Pigment (MAC) in the inner corner
Apply Teddy Eye Kohl pencil (MAC) in the inner rim and take it a little lower than your lash line
Then smudge this with a pencil brush and use soft brown shadow to blend product
Apply Lash Blast Volume Mascara (Covergirl) on both top and bottom lashes or use another mascara you love
Then to complete the eye makeup I used Ardell Lashes in Natural.
Maybe one day soon I will try some different brow products on myself.
Clear Brow Gel (Anastasia Beverley Hills)
Brow Wiz in medium brown (Anastasia Beverley Hills)
Did you know: These products are just amazing.
Carmex or a lip conditioner that works for you to hydrate your lips
Apply Lip Pencil - Soar (MAC) all over the lip
Modesty Lipstick (MAC)
I hope you enjoyed discovering what products were used for this look. I hope you have a lovely week.
