To some of you, you already know I have been away for quite some time due to maternity leave so to speak. I have been recovering from birth whilst also managing a newborn. Although I love my little bundle of joy there is one thing for sure I don’t miss and that is the sleep deprivation, the endless washing up and the new found scent of baby puke! But I ask myself would I change this? The answer is hell no! I secretly adore the late night feeds, the endless washing up and smelling of baby puke? Hmm Maybe not so much that side of things.
Another point I have to make is these days looking glamourous and makeup perfected to look like a supermodel are long gone, ok slight exaggeration there, as there will come a time when I can get back to spending hours in the bathroom. So when and where I can I try my best to look my best.
Which brings me onto my makeup for the day.
I decided to add some colours, my mood in the morning was actually rather a good one. When I am in a good mood I love to add colours (A recent thing for me, as I was never the daring type and stuck to neutrals, but since i found experimenting with different styles rather enjoyable I stepped well out of my comfort zone, that’s what life is all about right? Stepping out of that zone) So here is what I did:
I first applied my foundation, starting off with a primer, then mixing together my favorite foundation and then my lightening serum. Once applied and blended well I then started with the eyes!
Applying the eye primer, so the shadow sits nicely on top and appears more bolder and vibrant I took a copper shade and applied it on the lids, blending out a little.
Taking a purple shade I then applied this on the crease of the lid and blending it upwards to about half way.
Taking a green eyeshadow, (or eye pencil) I then applied the shadow along the lower lashline. (I did dampen the brush so the colour applied more bolder.
Taking an eye pencil I then applied lined the upper lash line with a bold line adding a flick. Finally finishing off with some barry m dazzle dust no.27 to create a shimmer just below the brow bone, finally taking a white pencil I drew I line on the water line.
To complete whole face I applied my favorite mascara and blush before applying pink lip liner and lipstick!
