One thing we’re going to introduce as a regular feature here on the blog is our #GetTheLook. It makes sense seeing as I get to do lots of lovely faces and you guys are always wondering what I used to create them!
Ill be sharing looks from Fashion Factories and Masterclasses so you can pick up some tips on the products I use, what I find works and what doesn’t work and overall just how to apply makeup without becoming overwhelmed!
Today I’m going to go through the gorgeous Gracie’s look that we did for a Poco by Pippa shoot.
Here’s how we achieved that glow!
First of all I used Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream all over the face. I love this moisturiser but yes it does have a price tag. I think it feels fab on and it is packed packed full of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins C & E, Aloe Vera & Shea Butter etc etc for radiant, healthier-looking skin. Do I think it’s the absolute best on the market?..No but I do enjoy it.
Next up I applied Benefit Porefessional down the t-zone. This works wonders at minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines allowing makeup to glide on over it but only a small amount is needed.
Love this foundation and it has a little bit more of a matte finish than the NARS Sheer Glow so it was perfect for Gracie’s skin which is on the oilier side - It builds full coverage but is extremely lightweight and blends really well.
Bronze & Glow
I used the Sculpted Custom Edition Palette filled with: Medium Bronze, Pearl Pop Cream Highlighter, Golden Glow Powder Highlighter and Sunset Sheen Blush.
Top tips for using the Custom Edition Palette;
Using the Sculpted Double Ended Brush apply the bronzer into the cheek bone beginning at the ear and moving inward towards the apple of the cheek where your bone should end, dust a little around the hairline on the forehead, down the sides of the nose and along the jawline.
Next pop the cream highlight along the tips of the cheekbones moving towards the temple - in a V or C shape if you like - applying with the ring finger and tapping the product into the skin. Pop a little down the centre of the nose and cupids bow. Follow this with the other side of the double ended brush and use your powder highlighter in the exact same places as the cream highlight.
Finish the look with sunset sheen blush applied to the apple’s of the cheeks. You can smile as you’re doing this and just Mayer as you like!
Gracie has insane skin anyway but just look at her glow!!
For Gracie’s brows I used the Nars Brow Perfector Pencil in Calimyrna, perfect for blonde colouring. I love this brow pencil as it’s really soft to work with so it gives natural hair like strokes and is super easy to blend. The spoolie helps to work your brows into shape before or after application.
Here I used MAC All That Glitters eyeshadow all over the lid and worked MAC Saddle in to the crease and also brought this below the eye for added definition and warmth. I also used a little of the MAC Brown Down at the outer edges underneath the eye for a smokey effect. I couldn’t live without this eyeshadow
I then used Inglot gel eyeliner and The Angle brush from the Sculpted Reloaded brush set to create a side flick with a thinner line on the inner corner of the eye. To finish the eyes I popped on three of the Penney’s individual lashes to give some length on the very outer corner of the eye - so handy!!
And there you have it, everything you need to achieve Gracie’s gorgeous look!
Lots of love,
