Today I’m going to be sharing #GetTheLook on the gorgeous Jess from the Fashion Factory last weekend. It’s always a great weekend, so I’m going to share some of the tips and the products used from both looks!
Here’s the lovely Jess before makeup... beautiful anyway!! (And yes that’s all her pain hair!)
I used the Hello Fab Coconut Skin Smoothie Primer on Jess. I love this primer it is like a two in one - moisturiser and primer - that brightens and smoothes pores and blurs imperfections! It’s super hydrating and leaves the skin glowing! You can find this one here
I followed this with the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, which is a really lightweight foundation that you can build coverage with - if you’ve been following the blog you’ll have seen this before! It’s almost like a second skin foundation and allows the skin to look like itself - just better, leaving the skin glowing. You can find this one here
To add a little coverage I used a full coverage concealer - a nice one would be the MAC studio finish concealer. Using just a tiny amount to cover any problem areas, it’s lovely and lightweight and finishes off the base perfectly. You can find this one here and to set the face I used the Bourjois Java Rice particularly along the T-Zone area.
Onto contouring next - don’t worry you don’t need loads of product to achieve definition. On Jess I’ve started out using Light Bronze from the Custom Edition Palette and just work the bronze into the hollow of the cheekbone, lightly around the hairline and along the sides of the nose.
I then applied Golden Hue Cream highlighter popping it along the tips of the cheekbones, down the centre of the nose and cupids bow. The thing to note about cream highlighter is to pop it on first before your powder highlighter, just by tapping it onto the skin using your finger. And I followed this exact pattern with the Golden Glow Powder highlighter! These golds are fab together!
To finish contouring the face I used Sunset Sheen Blush on the apples of Jess’ cheeks and just angled it slightly towards the bronze contour using an angled brush (The Setter from The Essentials Brush Set) Sunset Sheen is a great choice if you like a bit of glow in your blush.
I actually got loads of messages about what eyeshadow I used on Pippa on day two of the Fashion Factory so I have to say - All I used was the Golden Glow Power Highlighter from The Custom Edition! Any powder highlighters can be used as shadow and are usually fab on.
But back to Jess!! I used MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot as the eyeshadow primer and Medium Bronze from The Custom Edition to blend it out. I then blended all over with the Charlotte Tilbury Amber Haze creamy pencil, and that’s what created the smokey eye look on Jess. And to finish the look I topped a tiny amount of Stila Yellow Tales glitter on top and blended this out. To give the brows some definition I used Benefit Kabrow in Shade 4, which is a cream-gel to fill and define the brow.
I’m going to share the two looks that I did with Jess on the lips from the Fashion Factory! So if you’re more inclined to wear a nude I’ve used the Buff Lip Liner from the Nude Edition Lip Quad popped on the outline of the lips and then applied Charlotte Tilbury Penelope Pink on top.
I hope you loved the looks and thanks so much for reading!
Lots of love,
