Summer Makeup

3 September 2014

Hey guys! Although summer is basically over now, well actually I don't think there is any 'basically' about it. It is over. Woah. At least here in England anyway. But the other day when I was doing my makeup I tried something different and actually quite liked the result. I thought it looked quite summery, but now thinking about it although it is summery it just made me feel like I looked really fresh. Anyway, I thought I would show you all because it looked quite nice in the end and I will definitely be doing this again. Also, it didn't take long at all. Although I'm writing this quite a while after I done this so I've kind of forgotten what makeup brushes I used and what not, but I know the products I used. This is mainly focusing on eyes since there was nothing extraordinary about my face makeup, but I'll tell you what face products I used anyway, just in case you want to know.

If you're looking at this and getting mad that some of the things are wonky, I know. I tried. I will improve next time, I just realised. 
On my face I used Rimmel Match Perfection because it's the only shade dark enough for me at the moment. I was always too scared to actually buy it in case it made me break out or I didnt like it but then I borrowed my sisters after the holiday and I really like it! I thought I would but I always feel nervous trying new foundations, this one is so great though. It has a good overage but could be built up and I think it smells really nice, personally. I also used the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer which is alright, if I had my way I would be using it but its the only thing that remotely matches my skin tone at the moment. Then I used the Bourjois Cream Blush in shade 02 on my cheeks, I got this ages ago and really liked it but just kind of stopped using it because I have nothing to apply it with. I use my hands at the moment which I don't really like to do but I love this shade especially on tanned skin. Then I used the Bourjois Bronzing Powder, woah a lot of Bourjois here.

Wonky again, I know. I'm sorry. I feel nervous that you may have not even realised they're wonky and now I've pointed it out you're like 'Damn' but I just need people to know if they had realised that I realise it too, I'm not blind, just bad at getting things straight. Also hello little astronaut off my tshirt that you can see in the mirror!
On my eyes I didn't bother using a primer, even though I really should. It was pretty simple what I done anyway, but it was cute. I don't know what brushes I used where, but I know I used a mix of the Real Technique ones and the one that came with Naked palette. I began by covering my lid in Sin, I'm assuming by using the Real Technique Base brush. I then put a tiny bit of Sidecar in my crease, using the Deluxe Crease Brush. In the corner of my eye I used Virgin, I usually do this when I'm wearing eye shadow and blend it in because it makes your eyes look bigger. or something like that. I'm not really sure the exact reason but I do it because I think it really helps to open up my eyes.

 Then on my lower lash I used Collection Work the Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in Vanilla Sky. I really like using white eyeliner on the lower lid, again I think it helps open my eyes and I also think it looks quite cute. On my eyelashes I used the usual, Maybelline the Falsies. I got this one from the airport and I'm not sure why but its different to all my other Falsies, the brush is different and I actually much prefer this one, but I'm not sure why its different. Its called the exact same as all the others and it has a different pattern on the outside but it has a different want which I much prefer than the other ones. I forgot to put black eyeliner on my top waterline, but normally I do and I think it would have made this look much better because its all so light, it needs some bold darkness.
Then it ended up looking like this:

Excuse my messy eyebrows and the fact my eyes are just staring at you. InCpTIoOn.

I rarely do makeup posts but I really should do them more often because I find them so fun to write. I guess its because I never do any 'woah' makeup but still. its enjoyable. Anyway that's it for today, Ill see you soon. I actually will this time though, I have a schedule! Finally! I also think I will keep to it, I hope so anyway. This year will be a stressful one,  but everyone goes through it and I think I'll blog as breaks for in between my work.  But yeah, thanks for reading and let me know in the comments if you liked this post!?
