On Sunday I attended the ITWBN event in the Galway Bay Hotel. The weather on the way over was absolutely atrocious which I suppose we must expect in November can’t complain!!
I had been very bad last week for doing my makeup, I spent most of it makeup free which is unusual for me!! So when it came to dressing up a bit on Sunday I wanted to do a nice makeup look and I reached for the Pippa Palette to see what I could achieve. Here’s a step by step of what I used:
Primer – L’Oreal Infallible mattifying base
Foundations – Rimmel Lasting Finish shade 200 Soft Beige mixed with Maybelline Fit Me Shade 220 Natural Beige (I did this because I wanted to slightly darken the Rimmel because I had tan on). I used my Blank Canvas F20 in a stippling motion for good coverage.
Concealer – Catrice Liquid Camouflage shade 010 with Blank Canvas brush F02, I like to use a concealer under my eye area that is much lighter than my foundation as this really brightens your eye area and makes your eyes pop. I set it with the lightest powder in the Blank Canvas Contour palette.
Contouring – Blank Canvas Contouring palette Buy here using blank canvas brush F04 (I find this brush great for contouring because of the angle).
Blusher – Blank Canvas Contouring palette, I really love this peachy shade its subtle but gives you a healthy warm look, I use the Blank Canvas F15 brush to apply this, I also use this for my illuminator which was LULU from the Pippa Palette.
Close up of the eyes
Eyebrows – Catrice Eye Brow Stylist shade Don’t Let Me Brow’n
Eyes – Pippa palette Lily (all over eye), Susu (all over lid), Dodo (on outer corner and socket line and well blended with my P.S. love eyeshadow brush) I used the Blank Canvas brush E24 to do all this except blend of course! Then I used K.D on the lash line instead of eyeliner. I like to do this as it gives a much softer look again I used the angled end of the P.S love eyeshaow brush. NYX wonder pencil shade WP01 on water line again to refresh and open up the eye. I then used Maxfactor Masterpiece Transform on my bottom lashes.
Lips – NYX wonder pencil to outline lips. NYX lipliner pencil in 854 Pale pink all over lip (will make lippie last longer). Rimmel ‘the only one’ lipstick in shade 700 and then I used Maxfactor gloss in shade 10 Pristine nude.
To some people this might seem like a lot of effort but you would be so surprised how quick it is, Ok its not 5 minutes but sometimes its nice to spend a little longer on your makeup, especially if your doing something nice.
I hope you like and as always if you have any questions about anything feel free to comment and I’ll reply.
