Okay so I went for a classic natural look that would be easy to work with, easy for beginners and also versatile enough to change around and do other looks with just by changing a few colours around!
First up another retarded picture of myself with no make up on, also showing my iPhone case which I love by the way!
Ah, no make up... How awful lol. I think I have a thing with pulling that face when I take pictures, even when im with friends, someone points a camera at me, and that's my go to face... Hmmm...
Anyhoo's first I concealed all my scabs and warts lol using whichever concealer I plucked out first, I'm pretty sure it was MUA conceal and brighten kit which is uh-maze-balls! Primed my face with Seventeen Photo Flawless Primer and then I went ahead with foundation.
Again this being a natural look I wanted a natural finish but let's not kid ourselves here, I still wanted good coverage. So another one of my tricks is to mix my foundation with a tinted moisturiser! Sometimes I just use foundation and a normal moisturiser on days when I don't need much coverage and am in a hurry, but for this, a tinted one did just the job and I mixed then about half and half.
Next up I started on my eyeballs. Using my 'go to' base.
Ta dah!! I made sure to blend it out up to my brow using a flesh toned eyeshadow around the outside edges to help it blend better. I also applied mascara.
I then went ahead and darkened the crease using MUA Matte Eyeshadow in Shade 19.
I should probably mention the brushes I used were Barry M Eyeshadow Brush, Revlon Angled Contour Brush and H&M Fluffy brush. (Who knew H&M did make up brushes?)
I then decided enough was enough as otherwise this natural look was just not gonna be natural enough and so I left my waterline and cheeks clear of makeup.
I then went ahead and applied Seventeen Mirror Shine Lipstick in 'Camisole' just for that tiny hint of colour and a bit of shine and tried to take a photo without pulling the duck face or laughing.
But the great thing is with this look is you can change it up! I changed the lipstick for Seventeen Mirror Shine Lipstick in 'Cheeky Secret' and BAM! You got yourselves a flirty summer look!
I also thought, well hey, I could make this slightly gothic by adding purple to my lips! Now I didn't have a purple lipstick in the shade I wanted, this was the closest one I had:
So I used that as a base and mixed together a dark purple eyeshadow with some clear lipgloss and plopped that on top and I got this:
3 looks 1 eyeshadow application! Oh how versatile are we! Yeah baby!
