Diffused Colour Pop Look

This Post will be a product breakdown of a look i created on instagram a while ago.The Inspiration for this look stemmed from a few images i had seen at fashion week of graphic blocked liner looks on the eyes.

As i didn't want a strong visible outline to the eye makeup i concentrated on diffusing the edges of the application to create a softer effect.Products used are as follows:


Prepped with Mac Cosmetics Peach Lite strobe cream, followed by the new foundation I'm trying at the moment Vichy Dermablend (A full coverage long lasting matt finish foundation). The strobe cream helps add a gorgeous radiance to this full coverage foundation so you still benefit from the fantastic coverage but with an added healthy sheen

As always i first correct my under eye circles with dermacolor concealer in DF2 (a peachy shade) i then follow this up with La Girl concealer in light ivory to conceal & brighten up the under eye area. I contour and add warmth to the cheekbones using the 'Beautiful Bronzeshade, i like to apply this straight from the applicator and blend in with a dense buffing style brush. 

The hollows of the cheeks are further defined with a shadow by Illamasqua called Heroine (a cool toned soft grey)


i start by applying Illamasqua liquid metal cream shadow in superior all over the lid lower lash line and squared off in the inner corner of eye. 

Touches of a few shadows from the Smashbox cosmetics photo matte eyes mini palette in the crease & on the lower lash line. Haze (blue-grey) & rosehip (rose light neutral)
I applied MAC 'Golden olive' pigment topped with a touch of their gold glitter on the lid and centre of lower lash line. To highlight I've used Vanilla pigment on high points of face and inner corner of eye.

To complete the look i applied lashings of my trusty Maybelline lash sensational mascara.

Cheeks & Brows

A touch of Loreal true match blush in peach . To highlight the cheekbone's I've used a cream stick by Smashbox LaLights stick in 'Hollywood&Highlight' topped with MAC's Vanilla pigment.


Anastasia Beverly Hills lipgloss in 'Venom' dabbed on the lips to create a soft rose bitten stain effect to the lips.

Anastasia Beverly Hills dark brown eyebrow powder duo through the brows for definition, set in place with the clear brow gel.

As always thanks for stopping by & i hope you liked the look.
