Everyday natural with a twist


I cannot believe how difficult it is to take a photo of makeup on my own in my parents house, it's impossible! There's no light anywhere apart from right in the window and then I can't see what I'm doing. I'm going to have to ask Alex to teach me how to use her professional camera for taking pictures of makeup I think, this just won't do!

After my post on Frida Gustavsson I decided to use the second picture of her as inspiration for my makeup today, I kept my eyeshadow simple and really blended to get a seamless look, bronzed and contoured my cheeks and applied layers of red lipstick blotting inbetween to get a laid-back matte red lip.

On my eyes I have MAC Wedge on my lid, with a darker brown colour from the Sleek Natural pallet in my crease. All that glitters on my inner corners and Mylar as a highlight. I then smudged some Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner in black along my lashline for definition.
On my lips is Exotic Orchid Pure Colour Lipstick by Estee Lauder.

I hope you like it!

    1. Thankyou! Although it was easily vamped up by just darkening the colours when I went out last night, so it's quite versatile! x
