The Face Edit #2: Oh Honey

4 April 2013


It's been a while since I posted my last Face Edit, and recently I managed to drag myself away from my basic day to day face and jazz it up a bit for a wedding. The lipstick and blush have stayed the same, but the overall look was completely different.

On a daily basis I lean towards a very sheer base, so for nights out I like to up my coverage with Nars Sheer Glow. Neither sheer nor glowy, my foundation looked perfect every time I checked it. Under eye circles were brightened with my Estee Lauder highlighting pen, and for my pesky chin spot I brought out the king of concealers, MAC Studio Finish.

Because I was wearing false tan, after contouring my cheeks with Nars Laguna I also dusted it lightly over my face to spread the bronze. For blush I went for MAC Pink Cult again - although I've surprisingly not worn it much this month - et voila, my base was finished. I didn't bother with highlighter just in case I got a little hot (attractive, I know).

I'm weird and like to do my eye makeup in reverse, so I started off by applying a set of Katy Perry's Oh Honey lashes (not pictured, because I figured you probably want to avoid seeing my already used eyelashes). I really liked them, and will likely make a repurchase soon. For my base I used the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Tough as Taupe, which the lovely Michelle sent me. I blended MAC's Carbon in to the crease, and applied Bobbi Brown gel liner across my upper lash line, finished with a quick coat of Chanel Inimitable mascara. I didn't put anything on my lower lashes because they're really long, and look a bit spidery with mascara on them.

My lip combination was my favourite part of my face! I never bother with liner or gloss, but I threw this YSL and Chanel pair on along with MAC's A Perfect Day, and I absolutely loved it. My pout looked so much fuller, and because I'd used the liner it lasted longer too! Perfect for dancing the night away.
