Sorry I have been missing in action for a while, I am still studying at university and it is now my final year and I am working so hard.. (not) but I WAS finding it difficult to post often and so I apologise my blog has been on the back burner.
So really the inspiration to make a new post came after seeing this picture of Hayden Panettiere on the Daily Mail recently which featured a fuschia lip and a peachy gold eyeshadow that I think just looks incredible due to its fresh and simple nature (perfect with tanned or darker skin).
How to achieve this super simple look:
Face: Hayden is lucky to have great skin that is tanned and probably doesn’t need much coverage. I recommend if you are doing this for a night out or special occasion tanning your face with a facial self tanner such as St Tropez. Then you can use a concealer for any redness or breakouts as the tan does a good job at correcting your skin tone.
My favourite concealer at the moment is Pro-Longwear concealer from MAC as it doesn’t settle in lines and wrinkles (not that I have many at 22) but it is less likely to crease and has full coverage whilst still looking natural if you apply it just where it is needed. You can also add a bronzer to the places on your face where you would usually tan such as the bridge of your nose, forehead, cheeks and chin and then a liberal amount of Nars Orgasm Blush or something similar which will greate a really dewy fresh look. You can also add a highlighter if you have a favourite one as it looks like Hayden has used a highlighter with gold shimmer.
Eyes: Hayden has used a one wash eyeshadow all over the lid into the crease and under the eye and from what I can see it almost looks like a bronzer with shimmer. I like Amber Lights from Mac which is a peachy gold with shimmer which you could use alongside a bronzer to get that sunkissed eye look. and of course apply a couple of coats of mascara.
Brows: Hayden’s brows are groomed possibly just with a brow set and minimal product as she is lucky to have thick, full brows. If you don’t have brows like hers simply fill yours in using light brush strokes to mimic real hairs with a pencil for a more natural look.
Lips: The other focal point of this look is lips and Hayden has chosen almost a frosty fuschia. I think for this look on all skin tones Mac Full Fuschia is a great lipstick that will go great with the bronzed eyes but i suspect Hayden has mixed a couple of lipsticks to get the frosted look and so mix up the combination that will suit your skin tone.
Reply with photos if you try this look. I think it is a great look for spring and summer and something that is so easy to do. Let me know what you think in the comments below x
Nars Chihuahua Lipgloss
Nars Deep Throat Blush
For those of you that haven’t tried Nars before I would like to introduce you to my new two favourites! It is my birthday on Tuesday and I have just been given as a birthday present these two items above by my two best friends.
For those of you that follow my blog you know how much I love Nars. They do some great colours obviously with the most famous being Orgasm which comes in a blush, highlighting stick, lipgloss and illuminating fluid due to its popularity.
The Nars products I love so far are there powder blushes of course my new Deep Throat blush which is a pink with a gold shimmer running through it which is great for pale skins. I love the lipglosses because they last well and also don’t make your lips stick together like I sometimes find with Mac Lipglosses. I love the colour of Chihuahua lipgloss it’s a muted pink which goes great with Deep Throat and doesn’t have any shimmer, so perfect for every day or night.
If you are pale skinned then Deep Throat blush is a great one for you, if you are darker then something like Orgasm or Super Orgasm will look amazing. A lot of people love the Turkish Delight lipgloss but it’s just a bit pale for me so I am happy to have received the Chihuahua lipgloss which I prefer!
For those of you wanting to get into Nars there blushes and eyeshadows are a great place to start, they also do great lipcolour. A lot of people have mixed reviews about their foundations and whilst I can’t find a colour for myself I do think that Nars foundations are great if you are darker skinned or tanned.
Wow- how beautiful is Kendall Jenner? For those of you that don’t know who she is, I have blogged about her before and it is safe to say I have a little make up and style crush when it comes to this girl. First of all look at that hair! So long and gorgeous and her make up is always so flawless. She is obviously inspired by her older sisters and has been taught at an early age how to get that Kim Kardashian look!
I love this everyday look she does, I found this picture on her twitter its an instagram shot but you can see the make up a bit better than in other photos. I think this make up is great for every day and perfect for a first date if you want to look like you didn’t spend hours in front of the mirror and you actually just look naturally great!
Get the Kendall Jenner look:
1) Eyes- First of all sweep a primer such as MAC Bare Study Paint Pot over the lid and up to the brow. Next apply a light slightly shimmery beige over the lid such as Shroom by Mac. Contour the crease with a fluffy blending brush and a warm gold eyeshadow such as Woodwinked by Mac. Next fill in your brows with the eyeshadow colour you usually use, not too thick but defined enough to give the eyes some drama. Then apply a liquid or gel liner along the lash line in a moderately thick line without flicking out at the end. Apply lashings of mascara and if you like more definition do as Kendall has done and use a charcoal grey pencil on the waterline or a soft black.
2: Face- All of the Kardashian girls love their foundation. To copy this look if you don’t have flawless skin and you need to recreate this perfect skin look I recommend Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua which has such a thin texture but a great coverage. Just smooth on with fingertips or use a brush if you prefer.
3: Cheeks- Kendall is just wearing a soft pinky peach blush and it looks like instead of wearing a powder she has a bronzer all over. My favourites to use for this look would be Nars Laguna Bronzer and Nars Orgasm Blush.
Lips: For lips use a tinted lip balm such as the Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait.
And now all we need to do is grow our hair so it goes all the way to our bums and practise that model pout, well we are halfway there at least!
