Last week we were in Limerick with Pippa’s last Fashion Factory of the year! What an amazing weekend surrounded by fabulous people. I had the pleasure of doing Jess’s makeup at the event and lots of you have been wondering what products I used and how to achieve the look so i’ve put this post together to answer any queries!
All about that base;
Nars Longwear Radiant
Good coverage is an absolute must for me, but I also love a foundation that doesn’t look too heavy on the skin. I used Nars Longwear Radiant on Jess simply because it lives up to its name - It’s the perfect buildable foundation for great coverage while giving a gorgeous dewy finish. It comes in 33 shades and is perfect from daytime to evening looks.

Laura Mercier Translucent Glow
There’s a few reasons I love this cult favourite product. Basically it’s so fine it doesn’t settle into pores or fine lines like other products can, it’s completely lightweight, but also gives sheer coverage and keeps makeup in place for 12 hrs. What I absolutely love about this product is that there is no photo flashback and it gives a soft focus effect to blur the look of any imperfections or fine lines.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away
This concealer honestly is magic; it reduces the appearance of dark circles, pigmentation, redness, blemishes and imperfections in one swipe. The precision sponge is designed to roll over any imperfections and fits the natural contour of the eye. I applied this to any problem areas (not that Jess has any!!) and also applied it to the eye area by gently tapping the product with my finger

Sculpted The Custom Edition
Soo excited to use my Sculpted Custom Edition palette on the lovely Jess. Naturally, I’m a little biased when it comes to a soft and radiant contour, but I think it’s so important and really makes the base.
Using the Sculpted Double Ended Brush I used Medium Bronze to sculpt the face. It’s important to build the product - using small amounts at a time, and just tap the brush into the product to lightly build right along the cheekbone, down the sides of the nose, jawline and along the hairline.
To highlight, I used Champagne Cream and popped this on using my finger along the tips of the cheekbones, down the centre of the nose and along the cupid’s bow for a radiant finish. Champagne Cream highlight is almost skin colour so it gives a really radiant finish without being too obvious.
Using the Sculpted double ended brush I used Golden Glow powder highlight from the Original Palette on the tips of the cheekbones, down the centre of the nose, along the cupid’s bow and also on the lid of the eyes (i’ll talk more about the eye makeup look below)
And to give Jess that gorgeous pop of colour on the cheeks I used Pure Peach. This is a gorgeous full matte peach blusher which gives a gorgeous powdered finish to the apples of the cheeks. This is really perfect for any of you who might be a little afraid of blusher as it is not too pink and gives the skin a lovely matte finish.

Charlotte Tilbury; Stars In Your Eyes Palette
I just love this limited edition palette. There are four fab looks involved where Charlotte inspires Love, Power, Happiness and Confidence! The colour just stays and can be lightly layered or completely dialled up. On Jess I used the Love Look with 3 rose quartz-inspired shades in soft pink hues, applied with Sculpted the blender and definer brushes. To finish the look I popped Stila Magnificent Metals along the lash line and the centre of the lid blending using my finger and used Inglot 77 to line the lashline. This is by far the best long lasting gel liner in my opinion. My kit is never without it!
I smoked out Jess’ lash line with a brown liner too which is lovely for a sultry effect without being too dark!

Pout time :)
Sculpted Lip Quad in Buff with Mac Peach Blossom Lipstick
To achieve Jess’s gorgeous pout I used Sculpted Lip Quad in Buff. This warm brown tone is ideal for all skin colours. I used this all over the lip for lasting colour and popped some MAC peach blossom lipstick on top.
