So recently I’ve been playing more and more with my makeup, especially when I was off ill for three weeks. I had a LOT of time on my hands. I was inspired by Michelle Diaz but put my own much less glamorous twist on it.
Starting with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance, I applied Buon Fresco into my crease, gradually darkening with Love Letter and Red Ochre, taking it right into the inner corner of my eye. Once I was happy with the depth of my crease, it was time to cut. Taking my Zoeva 226 Smudger brush, I load it up with my Tarte Shape Tape concealer and get to business.
I cut out my crease all the way to my outer corner, even though I’m about to cover half of it up. Pressing Tempera into the inner corner, over the concealer to set it, I also add more Buon Fresco as I move towards the centre of the lid.
Next, I move onto the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette. I pat Gossip onto the centre of the lid and blend it into Delirious as I move outwards, blending it into the Red Ochre. Next, it’s time for the inverted eyeliner. Taking my 226 Smudger Brush again, I go in with my concealer in the same way I’d go in with my eyeliner, it’s a lot less scary than it seems. Building it into a strong colour, I also blend it out towards my cheekbones to cover any fallout. Taking Love Letter and applying it to my lower lash line, I whack on my Tarte Centre of Attention lashes and that’s the eyes done. Sort of.
Because next is highlight. Taking Spectra from my Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora, I apply it GENEROUSLY to my cheekbones, as well as my inner corner, brow bone, nose and Cupid’s Bow. I also apply it to the inverted eyeliner to give it that bit of sparkle.
Finishing with my ABH Liquid Lipstick in Heathers, I don’t actually think I’ve ever looked this girly. But I absolutely loved it and totally felt like I could conquer anything.
