This week my makeup bag has been dominated by Naked 3. I've chosen the rest of the products to compliment the tone of the palette. I am very much in love with naked skin at the moment. I don't want and need coverage. I want my skin to show. So I started testing a brand new tinted moisturiser by Bare Minerals. Complexion Rescue is something else. I only wore it few times so I'll leave my thoughts for a full on review but so far so good, I'm very impressed with it. I wear it in shade Opal . That's a perfect shade for me (phew!!! as this was an online shopping indulgence). It's light, it feels great on my skin and is surprisingly long wearing. I can pat myself on a shoulder for deciding to take a plunge on this one.
I already gave you my first impressions on Correct and Conceal Palette from Freedom Makeup (check out my previous post here). I continue to use it and I'm really liking this palette. I've been using it non stop recently and it has few matte highlighting shades that I'm enjoying at the moment. It gives me a coverage and a highlight in one, which is always great.
The Balm Desert Bronzer is also very new in my collection. It's a sample, I only just received in my August Birchbox (for a review click here) and I love it. It's a perfect summer bronzer. It's got a stunning colour with a satin finish. Perfect to give your complexion just a little bit of tan.
The Matte Blush from Makeup Revolution is a brand new add on to my collection. I'm hard in testing and I hope to have a review for you this weekend. I decided to use Divine as it's got that light pink shade that's surprisingly fresh on the cheeks. Perfect pigmentation, easy to blend, matte. I'm impressed and there's 5 more to feast your eyes on. I'm loving it !!!
I decided it's time to try this whole "my lips but better" trend and join in. I chose Freedom Makeup Pro Lipstick in Whispers. It lasts 2-4 hours, it's moisturising and gives me that perfect pink nude pout. Love it !!! Also for £1 per shade it's a sin not to get at least 1.... or 10 :) I reviewed lip products from Freedom before, for a review with swatches click here :)
I created a light, almost angelic look inspired by the gorgeous Chloe Morello latest tutorial using Naked 3 palette(watch here). I wanted naked skin look. Glowing skin with defined yet light cheeks. Lips that are my colour just a little better and eyes that are full of sparkle. It's a very daytime look, it would look gorgeous as a wedding makeup if what you're going for is delicate and natural.
For my base I used my fingers to blend a little of Complexion Rescue in Opal. I added some coverage underneath my eyes using Correct and Conceal Palette from Freedom Makeup. I also used the lightest pink shade to highlight my nose, chin, cupid bow and forehead. I then lightly added some The Matte Blush from MUR in Divine on my cheeks. Then to bronze up my complexion i lightly dusted The Balm Desert Bronzer on my forehead, nose and on cheekbones - not contouring, just adding some colour and glow.
I created this look using 4 shades from Naked 3 palette. I firstly applied Urban Decay Original Primer to my lids and dusted Strange (matte) all over the lid to help me with blending. I then started to blend Limit (matte)just above my crease (I don't tend to blend in the crease as much because of my hooded eyes - so the good trick is to create an illusion and blend just above). I then intensified the "crease" with Nooner which is another matte shade. I also blended it in the other corner, very lightly just to add dimension to the eye. The sparkle you see in the inner corner and middle of the lid comes from Dust. Dust is a gorgeous shimmery shade but also very tricky. I won't lie to you, there's a lot of fall out. I applied a little of UD primer and then pressed Dust on it with my finger. I then finished the lower lid by applying Limit all over and dust in the inner corner, slightly blending it outwards. Little coat of mascara and voila. I applied a little of Freedom Makeup Pro Lipstick in Whispers to complete this angelic look.
I hope you enjoyed browsing my current makeup bag. I plan to switch it up weekly from now on to show you a little more of my collection and create some looks that I tend to opt for during that particular week. Hope you enjoyed it and I'll see you next time :)
