Hey internet Friends,
So I’ve dyed my hair a lot darker for the winter months and noticed very quickly that my previous everyday make up just wasn’t working with my new hair and complexion so Ive changed this round a little bit and Im really pleased with the results. Thought we’d talk about that today….
I use two different lip colours depending how Im feeling and what Im wearing.
For the base I start with my Yes to Moisturiser specially designed for oily skin and using all natural ingredients, I then apply my KIKO natural concealer. I find the blue in this really helps to reduce under eye circles and redness.
The foundation Im using at the moment is a mixture of Mac Studio Fluid Fix and Rimmel Match Perfection, I buff this in really smoothly using the Real Techniques buffing brush.
To begin the work on my eyes I start with the benefits brow zing kit to define my eyebrows and make them closer to my new darker hair.
For the eyeshadow base I use the KIKO cream eyeshadow in this pale shimmer colour, this really helps hold my eyeshadow in place and avoids it creasing as much.
The eyeshadow I use all over the lid is also a KIKO cranberry colour with the white blended slightly to give a softer effect.
I finish of the eye look with working a darker brown colour from my Naked Smoky through the crease and running MAC coffee through both the top and bottom waterline.
The Mascara I use daily is the Benefit They’re Real in Black.
I find this look super simple, easy to create daily and really flattering to my pale complexion and new dark hair. Im also loving the pigmentation from the KIKO shadows.
Because my hair is so much darker I really feel the need for bronzer on a daily basis so use my favourite Hoola by Benefit across my cheekbones, jawline, forehead and to accent my nose. This gives my face more definition and stops me looking like the moon.
The Blush I use is from the Benefit Real Cheeky Party pack but is also available as a single shade and when this pack runs out I will 100% repurchase, the shade is called Dandelion and its a beautiful Pale Pink.
I also use the Benefit Watt’s Up cream highlight from this pack.
I finish my skin detail with the Mac Studio Fix Powder, that way it 100% will last all day.
The two colours I have been using are from the Kate Moss Rimmel range because the consistency and longevity of these products is truly wonderful.
The nude shade is the 101 and the darker colour is the infamous 107.
I think both these colours finish of the look remarkably well and are incredibly wearable colours.
Thanks so much for reading guys and I really hope you like my new everyday look(s)!
Do you guys find a slight change in your appearance totally changes your make up game?!
