Fresh Autumnal Look

Today's post will be a product breakdown of a look i posted on Instagram yesterday, focused around fresh highlighted skin and a statement two tone lip.



Key product breakdown of the look is listed below:

Complexion

Firstly i prepped my skin with the MAC Strobe cream in 'Peachlite'. The new colour extensions are gorgeous, i was really excited to try them especially as the original would come up a bit too ashy on tan-deeper skin tones.
I followed this up by using MAC Face & body foundation in the shade C4 mixed with a touch of prolong wear concealer in NC42 applied down the
t-zone for 'controlled glow'. As i have an oily skin type i have to mix in a matte finish concealer otherwise face & body on its own is a tad too shiny and wont last.


My concealer routine is as usual, first i corrected my dark circles with the dermacolor corrector in the shade DF2 and then apply my LA Girl concealer in light ivory. I also use the shade beautiful bronze to add colour to the perimeters of my face and blend out using a dense buffing brush.

I set my skin with my Dermacolor fixing powder, this is a finely milled loose setting powder that you can pick up from the Charles fox store in covent garden. It comes in a variety of lightly tinted shades and truly helps your make-up last the test of time. I apply this with my beauty blender firmly pressing it into the skin, for this particular look i avoided powdering the cheeks to maintain the dewy glow.

On the cheeks is the MAC Versicolour lipstain in 'Constant Craving' dabbed on as a blush. To highlight i used Smashbox La Lights stick in 'Hollywood & Highlight' .


Eyes

Firstly i prepped with a touch of the MAC Layin' low Paint pot blended all over my lids followed by a new pigment from the Christmas collection again by MAC called 'English Gilt'. Touches of a few shadows from the Smashbox Photo Matte Eyes palette in the crease & lower lash line for soft definition. (Grounded, desert & earthy)
To polish off the eyes i added lashings of my trusty Maybelline Lash sensational mascara.


Lips

For the lips i used MAC's Blue-Brown Pigment mixed with clear Lipglass to create a gorgeous two tone earthy autumnal shade. This colour reflects either brown or greeny/blue dependant on the light. I thought this created the most gorgeous unique lipstick that commands all the attention in this look.



I hope you like the look and enjoyed this post. As always thank you for stopping by, until next time.
