A little bit of glitter never hurt no body, in fact a lot of glitter never hurt no body either…
My good friend and makeup artist, Charlee Elizabeth and I put our thinking caps on and came up with this shimmery dewy makeup look. With hints of purples and pinks, this look is the perfect way to spice up a black and white outfit.
Now, you’re probably wondering how Charlee achieved this fabulous shimmery dewy look. Follow the step by step guide below!
STEP ONE: SKIN PREP
Charlee used a range of skin care products to prep my skin. These include, two Dr Dennis products; Moisture cushion and clinical hydrating booster, Perricone MD Cold Plasma Eye, Mario Bedascu Facial Spray and Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
STEP TWO: PRIME
Hourglass no. 28 Primer Serum is Charlee’s go to product for a dewy base
STEP THREE: FOUNDATION
Charlee used the Hourglass Viel Fluid Makeup and Too faced Born this way concealer. This is currently my go to foundation for my skin!
STEP FOUR: POWDER
Napoleon Camera Finish Close Up Complexion Perfecting Powder was then used over my T-zone and where contouring was going to be applied. This keeps that dewy glow but helps control oil and stops the contour from going patchy on the dewy skin.
STEP FIVE: EYES
Using shades from INGLOT, Shade 440 was used in the socket of my eye and shade 447 on the lid. Charlee then swapped to the Sweet Peach Palette by Too Faced. Shade candied peach was used under my lower lash line. Shade, Delectable was used on my top lash line to define the eye. Finished off with Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.
STEP SIX: CONTOUR + HIGHLIGHT
To shape my face, Charlee contoured with Too Faced Chocolate soliel and added a little NARS Lugana bronzer on the cheeks and forehead. She then added eye shadow shade 301 by INGLOT to the apples of my cheeks. The Mecca Cosmetica Enlightened Lit From Within Highlighter, was added to the top of my cheeks bones, my cupids bow and a little on my nose.
STEP SEVEN: BROWS
Charlee shapped my eyebrows using the hourglass arch brow sculpting pencil and Set them with Makeup Forever Eyebrow Gel.
STEP EIGHT: LIPS
We kept it simple with the lips and used the hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in the colour Fortune
STEP NINE: SET
Urban Decay all night setting spray is Charlee’s go to setting spray (mine too)
Step out of your beauty comfort zone and play with colour and glitter this season. You won’t regret it, I promise.
