AD | Hello my lovelies, happy Wednesday, I hope that you're all doing amazing and having a wonderful week so far! While summertime gives us a license to be
- Quick big tip? Emphasize one feature, and emphasize it right.
| A Simple Smoky Eye | Smoky eye make up is typically associated with night time, but working with brighter colours can make it daytime appropriate. Starting on the lids, sweep a deep teal shadow like Barry M Cosmetics' 'Snow Leopard' Wildlife Palette in shade 'Ice', up to the crease. Smudge the colour along the top and bottom lash line with an eyeliner brush as it will help intensify the eyes.
| Perfectly Flushed Cheeks | Bright, bronze skin is gorgeous and won’t make you look overdone, so try and create a flawless canvas with your foundation then follow with a bright blush on the apples of cheeks for a pop of colour. If you have Snow White pale skin like myself a good one to try is Revolution 'Blushing Hearts' Triple Baked Blusher, which has a creamy, sinks-right-in texture. Top with a light dusting of bronzer to create contrast.
| The Notice - Me Lipstick | For a twist on classic red lipstick, bright pink and berry shades are a welcome summer trend. A bold lip is a go-to look that always makes a statement, regardless of whether you’re wearing jeans and a tank or a summer cocktail dress. For ultimate staying power, outline your lips with a liner in the same shade as your lipstick. Barry M Cosmetics' Matte Me Up Metallic Lip Kit (shade Allure MLKA) is great for this and come in lots of great shades! Smile a little so the lips are tight and the liner glides along smoothly.
With love, Alisha Valerie. x
