Lookbook - Wet and Wild, BeautyUK looks
So im going to start doing a weekly look-book at what products I've used and how I've achieved these, plus the finished result. Then if you like any you can see the relevant post from that week or brand to see the full review.
So we will start with the basics of what i used to prime my face on these looks and that would be these
Elemis Pro-radiance Flash balm (Primer) - review to follow this week
BeautyUK - New matte FX Foundation (Suited more for normal to combination skin)
BeautyUK - Blush and Brush - I used both mixed with the Pink giving the flush of colour and the more peach to give a light bronzer effect and highlight, they are really great products to use and you need a tiny amount.
Eye-Primer as always my Urban decay primer potion
Palettes used are Wet and Wilds - Don't steal my thunder and BeautyUK- Glitz
YSL - Volumise and lengthen mascara
Now i have done separate look charts and if you want any thing added to these look books please leave a comment and il be happy to answer or if you want any looks to be done.
So the first will be the BeautyUK look i achieved with the Glitz palette
I started by using the lightest pink on the eye and a touch of the silver to the inside corner of the eye as highlight, then taking the darker pink fill the lid with this colour so the light pink still is present and makes the eye pop. Then with the lightest blue i blended a little in the crease and it made this amazing purple shade when blended and also made the lid pink have a purple tinge to it.
When all is blended take some of the black shimmer and pack a little into the outer "v" and blend inwards so you just have more definition to the eye and the other colours will just look like they have faded making the lid the focal point. I then used the BeautyUK jumbo pencil liner (Black side) to lightly line the eye and make it pop. As you can see in the bottom left picture the BeautyUK blushers being used as a pop of colour to the cheek and the rustic peach as a gentle highlight. When doing a bold eye that has a lot of shimmer i don't like using a more pearl highlight as i find its too much.
So the rustic peach blush was a fine and lovely highlight. Also the turquoise side of the pencil i just lightly used it under the waterline to the outer V then continued into the inner V with the black side.
I really like how these shadows blend and work well together, so many variants can be used with this palette.
So look 2 was done with Wet and Wilds - Don't steal my thunder ONLY, bar the eye-pencil which again was the beautyUK one, I started from the inner crease with the brow-bone colour at the top as a base for the whole eye then i cover the lid with the silver colour. I then used the define and packed it along the lid till half way in, then i blended this until it was a fluid colour and even, it must have a duo-chrome in all the shadows as it looks dark blue but i assure you i used none. Then going in again with the define black colour i used a pencil brush to define the crease and V. Then again lined my eyes with the Black jumbo eyeliner.
So what do you think ?
