Blogmas 11 - Family Dinner Make-up

Tuesday, 24 December 2013
This time of year usually everyone has a lot of dinners or lunches with family and friends.  To me these are usually laid back, nothing to fancy so a party make-up look is not necessary.  I would dare say it would be a bit to much for such a situation.  This will be a tutorial of the make-up look that I am wearing for these lunches/dinners.  

Base: First using my fingers I applied the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in the colour ivory.  Then I went over the areas that needed more coverage with some more but this time using the  Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.  I applied the  Essence Coverstick Concealer on any blemish and breakouts that I wanted to cover. Then using an Artdeco Powder Brush I sealed the base with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in transparent shade.  

Eyes: I first put on my eyelids some ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer which I then spread out using my fingers.  Then, I took a gold shadow from the Elf 100pc Palette and put it all over my lid as the base colour.  On the outer corner I then used some Mac Woodwinked Eyeshadow which I blended out and re-applied until I obtained the desired effect.  Being an antique gold colour this created a natural transition accentuating the depths and contours of my eyes.

Then I put some Rimmel Wake Me Up Under-Eye Concealer (I did not do this before so that I would be able to wipe off any shadow fall-out).  Next on to the liner, I lined my upper lid with the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner with a fine liner brush which I smudged a little bit in the outer corners using a tiny pencil brush.  On the outer corner of the bottom waterline I used the Revlon Colourstay Liner and smudged it towards the inner corner. 

As a final touch on my eyes, I took the Pop Beauty BlushBeam which is a glittery highlight and put some on the golden parts of the eyes to make it slightly more shimmery, lighter and more festive. Also, on top of the blended out shadow, as a transition, using a Blending Brush I put some Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer. 

Cheek: Using the same bronzer I contoured lightly the hollows of my cheek.  On the apples of my cheeks I then used the Bourjois Blusher in the colour healthy mix and took in circular motions towards the hairline. 

Lips: Finally, on my lips I used the Rimmel By Kate Matte Lasting Finish in the shade 107 which is a blood red colour.
