Soft Glam Eye with Bold Lip Makeup Look || Collab

Hey everyone, today’s post is in collaboration with AlixKate. We’ve decided to collab again on a neutral eye-look with a bold lip and Alix is filming this for her youtube channel which you can watch here. We have actually collab'd before, so if you would like to read that post you can click here.

So let’s start with how I created this look. I decided to primer with the MAC Fix+, as I wanted something light, hydrating and refreshing and I knew this would do exactly that. For foundation I used the Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation in F1 and mixed it with the EX1 Invisiwear Foundation to give myself a really glowy, lightweight yet full coverage look. The Revolution Stick Foundation itself doesn’t last that well on my skin so I mixed it with the EX1 one to keep it on the skin longer and also to help blend it out.

The MAC PRO LongWear Concealer has become the one that I find myself reaching for more and more and today was no exception. Although it’s a little full coverage and cakey, I find with using the slightest amount and blending it out with a damp beauty blender, that it takes a lot of the excess product away and if I set it properly by baking with the RCMA No Colour Powder that it looks really good and flawless. I then set my face with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.

Because all the attention is going to be on the lip in this makeup look, I used the Hoola Lite Bronzer by Benefit to give a light bronze-y, summer glow and finished off the face with a mixture of the Dallas and the Dandelion Blush, both of those also by Benefit. I also baked underneath the bronzer to give a little bit of a contoured look and to make my cheekbones pop. To get rid of the powdery look to the skin, I then spritzed my face again with some Fix+.

Just a quick note to say all the shades used are marked on the picture above. 

For the eyes I decided to use the Morphe 35K Palette, which I haven’t been reaching for as much since I bought the sophdoesnails palette, but I knew this palette would be perfect for this type of look. To start the look off I went over with the closest shade to my skin colour and blended that all over my crease, just to set the concealer to make the other shadows easier to blend. I then mixed Cloudberry, which is the orange shade from the sophdoesnails palette, with the warm nude shade in the Morphe palette and blended them into my crease and slightly down onto the lid. To deepen the crease, I then blended the brown shade on to the outer part of my crease. And there we have it, the most simple eye look. To finish off the eyes, I picked up the Rimmel Miss Baby Roll Mascara which gives really nice volume and curl to the lashes, without looking like spiders legs.

My fave part is next and thats the brows. I still find myself reaching for the MAC Deep Dark Brunette Gelcreme and I haven't been able to find something that works better than this yet, so I imagine it'll be my go-to for much longer. I then set them in place with the Natural Collection Clear Mascara.

Lastly, to finish off the look, I decided to go with a lip colour that although it’s bold, it also screams summer and this is The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid in Cali Gerbera which is a bright coral-y, orange shade. I went with this lip colour because it’s quite bright and really summery and I know I’m going to be reaching for it a lot over the next couple of months.

So there we have it, the details of how I created this look. I really hope you enjoyed this post and don’t forget to check Alix’s Channel and Blog out!!
