Early start, early finish. The 7am shift is my fave cause you open up and get shit done then before you know it your finished and you still have the rest of your day. But it’s tidieous when it comes to make up, cause you want something quick and easy to do but you don’t want to look like you’ve just rolled out of bed and arrived at work. Plus, if you’ve got plans after work then you need a look which can do both….. Although nobody probably thinks about make up in this much detail, just me? Okay cool.
FACE: I went for a subtle contour and more of a highlight as I wanted to brighten up my face. I’d fake tanned the night before (I used Bondi Sands) so my face was quite bronzed. I used my usual Sephora foundation (although I really need to find a new foundation as this is running out, any suggestions?), Sephora creamy concealer and Make Up Forever HD translucent powder to set everything in place. Then I used Topshop Bronzer in Mohawk and the NYX contour palette to give a light contour. I went HARD with highlight, I used the Topshop Glow Pot in Polished, and both Topshop Highlighters in Sunbeam and Crescent Moon. Love a glow. I used them above my cheekbones, on my nose and on my Cupid’s bow.
EYES: I used The Balm Voyage palette in shades Bienvenue, Tervetuloa and a little bit of Valkommen to do a light warm brown smokey eye. I then used Topshop gel liner to do some eyeliner flicks. Im so bad at eyeliner I have to use sticky tape to line my eyes so my ticks are even! For my brows I used my ultimate fave Topshop brow gel in Form.
LIPS: I used both Topshop Lip Contours to do my lips, I used Frame to out line my lips and Outline in the centre to do a nude matte ombré. I dust a bit of contour powder under my bottom lip, I learnt this trick on Kylie Jenners app and it really makes so much difference! Also works really well with these lip liners.
HAIR: I got me some extensions, blog post to follow! I styled my hair with Balmain sea salt spray to create a beachy texture.
So overall, my face is pretty much Topshop! I do fully recommend all the products mentioned. The Balm palette I bagged in TK Maxx for £8, RRP £37.50!!
