Hey everyone! Sorry for the lateness of the post and for the lack of one last week. I was just incredibly busy with A LOT of stuff! And this week, I couldn’t get a decent internet connection in Portstewart so I had to upload it at home in Belfast. Hope you can all forgive me as I plan to do Kristen’s Leno look for next week.

Start off with the usual facial routine. Here I’ve mixed the two foundations as the Gosh is too pale and the Rimmel a shade too dark. I applied the foundation over my lips as there will be a lip colour going over it. You may use a powder to achieve the matte finish, but since I have used the STAY MATTE foundation, I didn’t need powder. No bronzer or blusher is needed. If you want, you can add a light coloured brown blush to the cheekbones.
Start off with a primer potion. Next, add the silvery colour from the Rimmel palette to the eyelid and as a liner colour on the lower lid. Next add a black shadow to the lash line in a medium thickness line from the inner to outer corner. You don’t want the black to be too dark, you want a dark grey colour. Be careful as black is a tricky colour to apply. Apply it gradually and not all at once. With a blending brush, blend the silver and black. Apply the colour so the is a gradation of colour; the black on the inner corner should be lighter than the outer corner.
Next apply a black liner to the outer half of the lower lid and smudge the colour downwards and inwards towards the inner corner. As an extra step you can add more of the silver to the lower lid but make sure it doesn’t interfere with the black liner.
For eyebrows, all you would need is a clear mascara to hold them in place. Keep them natural or add a light brown colour to them (before the clear mascara).
Finally add mascara and you’re done with the look!
Keep it natural. Stick to pink and peach tones for lipstick and lipgloss. Whichever you prefer.
