makeup look


I meet with a lot of clients and its always in offices and a lot of the time I notice women in the office aren’t wearing any make up or its been done in a rush so its not going to last. What we want its to look as fresh and pretty as possible and have a little pop of colour. I have created a look incorporating a fresh face, a purple gel liner on my eyes and a fresh pink matt lip.

Here is how to create the look:

  • Moisturise/Prime
  • I buffed into my skin Max Faxtor Face Infinity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Liquid Foundation all over my face
  • I concealed under my eyes using Hourglass Concealer
  • I applied with a foundation brush Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector on the top of my cheek bones
  • For a little bronzing I used the smallest amount of the Stila HD Bronzing Beauty Balm and buffed under my cheek bones
  • For a little shimmer on the eye I applied with my fingertips the Mac Paint Pot in Bare Study
  • Along the lash line I applied with an angled brush the Macroviolet Fluidline Gel
  • I filled in my brows with Mac Brow Pencil in Lingering
  • For my lashes I applied the Gosh Boost Your Lashes Mascara
  • I lightly dusted on the apples of my cheeks Mac Sheertone Blush in Pink Swoon
  • To finish off the look I applied Revlon Super Lustrious Lipstick Matt Lipstick in Stormy pink.

You don’t have to use the same products exactly to create the look but gives you an idea of a fresh pretty look.

I recently did hair and makeup for a beauty trend shoot for a local South African retail client. One of the looks was a natural flawless face and a bold red lip and for the hair a simple top knot. Here is how I created the look.

Face: I applied Estee Lauder Day Wear Cream all over the face and then buffed in Benefit Oxygen Wow Oh So Flawless Foundation and for concealer the Bobbi Brown creamy concealer under the eyes and around the nose.  I highlighted using a cream highlighter (no longer on the maket so try one of Topshop’s cream highlighter’s) on the top of the cheek bone up to the temple, on the bridge of the nose and on the cupid’s bow. For contouring I buffed in Benefit Hoola under the cheek bone, along the jaw line and on the temple.

Eyes/Brows: I applied Benefit cream shadow in birthday suit on the lid with a Mac 239 brush, I blended Mac Scuplt in the crease of the eye with a Mac 219 blending brush and then for extra intensity I applied Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in sable in the outer corner of the eye. I applied Inglot AMC Pure Powder pigment in no 14 on the lid and in the inner corner of the eyes. I brushed the brows upwards filled the brows using Benefit Browzing in light with a Mac 266 angle brush. I applied 2 coats of Maybelline Falsies Express Mascara.

Cheeks: I lightly dusted Mac blush in Peaches.

Lips: Applied lip balm, then traced the outline of the lips using Mac lip liner pencil in Brick and then applied with a lip brush Mac lipstick in Ruby Woo.

Hair: I spritzed the hair with Osis hairspray and then brushed the hair upwards into a high ponytail. I secured the hair and teased and then twisted the hair into a bun and pinned.

Nails: I applied Ciate Nail polish in Sand Dune.
