Hi loves, I thought I'd create a make up look based entirely around my recent purchase of MACs Cyber Lipstick, a beautiful vampy lipstick that definitely requires a nice smokey eye to accompany it.
Here is the step by step of how I created this look:
1) Now with my other recent purchases, I do have a new foundation routine. I start by moisturising with my Nivea Day Cream (for combination skin) and then applying my L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Primer all over my face. Then I took my beloved MAC Studio Fix Fluid (NW13) and applied that all over, then concealed with MACs Pro Longwear Concealer (NW20) underneath my eyes, down the bridge of my nose and over any blemishes. Then I set that all in to place with my Kiko Soft Light Powder (02). This eye look was created with my favourite palette which is the "What You Waiting For?" Palette by Makeup Revolution, find a run down of the colours included in my Smokey Red look. I use the colour Super Hot Female as a contour, underneath my cheek bones, my temples, under my jaw bone and the sides of my nose.
2) As a base for my eyes I used MACs Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterley, this blocks out my veins and any redness and allows the shadow to stay put longer. I started by defining the crease with the colour Stupid H.. which is a stunning shimmery brown, and over the rest of my lid I used the colour Tick Tock, a beautiful muted gold which created a lovely shimmered smokey eye. I then created a small cat eye flick with my trusty Seventeen High Drama Liquid Liner, and then took my favourite mascara combination which is the Bourjois Max Volume Mascara and the Rimmel Lash Accelerator, the Bourjois one created volume whilst the Rimmel one really adds length and gives great separation to the lashes.
3) My eyebrows are done with L'Oreals Brow Artist Palette, I use the wax to outline and create the shape, then the powder to fill those babies in, to set them I simply spray a spoolie with some cheap hairspray, does exactly the same job as expensive setting gels.
4) This lip look was created with my newest favourite lip liner, which is the Collection Extreme 24HR Felt Lip Liner in the colour Purple, this really is an amazing lip liner, it's a nightmare to remove but it really does have the best staying power and prevent the lipstick from bleeding. And, of course, over the top of that I used MACs Cyber lipstick, which is a Satin finish, so it's not completely Matte but it's also not too glossy.
