No foundation glam

Hello my lovelies, long time no see, how are you all?

Im sorry i’ve been inactive for a while i’ve been super busy on other projects and GCSEs and silver DofE… but im back now so will be posting a lot more. Anyways dont want to bore you but i felt i needed to address my absence and apologise.

This is my no foundation but still glam makeup look for lazy days, or days you just want to let your skin breathe without looking 100% gross, Hope you enjoy…

This is my everyday makeup when i dont want to look like a gross egg, but want to let my skin breathe with no foundation. I start with my Radiance face wash by Burt’s bees then my Neal’s yard ‘Daily moisture’ so im glowy af because if im not going to wear foundation i want people to know im not.That sounds weird but do you get what i mean? Im like yes i have got foundation on but yeah i still look bomb it’s like a satisfaction thing… although i normally dont look bomb i look dead. Anyways the only other things i put on my face are some natural bronzer by Rimmel in sun bronze, my natural Lancome rose blush and my highlight.

For the glam part i like to wear bold but simple eyeshadow so i dusted a yellow eyeshadow from kiko in the shade 19 all over my lid. To darken the eyes i put tiki hut by makeup geek in my outer third, on my lower lash line and lightly in the crease. After some winged eyeliner (which is a killer to do) and some brown eyeliner in the water line, i top it off with mascara and bam it’s done. It is super simple and takes 5 mins max so i love it as im lazy, and its bold so looks like a tonne of effort when it really isn’t.

The last steps i do is put some Carmex on my lips and fill my eyebrows in like normal with my Anastasia dip brow in dark brown. Some days i will shove on a bold lip to but as i still have acne scaring a pink or red would bring out the colour of them making it more obvious. Plus not having a lip focuses the attention on my eyes not my naked skin, which is great and kind of what i want.

Thankyou for reading again im sorry ive been inactive for so long hope you have a lovely summer and week. love Abi xx

Festival makeup

Hello my lovelies, how are you all? At festivals glitter is your best friend and the bolder the makeup the better, nothing is to much! So this year i went to a local festival near me called latitude and had the time of my life. Comment below if you went to a festival, if so which one. I camped there for 4 days and this was one of my looks i hope you all enjoy.

For this makeup as there is alot of glitter its best to start with the lips and eyes. Bit of a weird order but i found it worked best. So for the eyes i primed them with my mac pro long wear concealer amd set them with my translucent powder. Then i put a burnt orange in my crease and created a wing with my maybelline 24hr colour tattoo in the shade endless purple, bit of a random colour i know but it made the blue pop so i went with it. Over the top of this i used one of my strictly pigments in sky blue to set it. After the face we will come back to the eyes. 

Next i did the lips i outlined them and filled them in with the same maybelline colour tattoo as it is a cream eyeshadow the glitter sticks to it i used this as an alternative as i didnt want to use glue on my lips. I covered my lips with dark blue glitter also from a strictly set making sure to be carefull not to slip, as im not a fan of a blue moustache. I then cleaned the edges up using my foundation. 

Now for the fun bits i used my rimmle natural bronzer on the perimeter of my face focusing on my non existent cheek bones, then went over it with my shimmer bronzer from my makeup revolution palette in golden sugar; from the same palette i took the highlighting blush shade and the purple highlighter and mixed them together to create a blush/highlight. For more highlight because my life goal is to blind people, i took the white highlight from that palette and put it in all the places id previously placed the concealer, so pretty much everywhere to be honest. Then i took my body shop roll on glitter and placed that on my cheek bones and a tiny amount on my nose. I didnt want to have coloured glitter on my face as the eyes and lips where the main attraction, however this glitter does have a blue and purple reflect.

Now back to the eyes i placed the orange i used in my crease on the lower lash line and then covered that in the blue pigment, this turned out a aqua colour however you sadly cant see it from the pictures. For the inner corner i used the same white hightlight and a bit if the glitter. Finally i coated my lashes in my maybelline lash sensational mascara then filled in my eyebrows like normal and that was it. If you want a more indepth routine of the brows i have a blog post on it. 

Thankyou all for reading, i wont be active for a while as im away for another week with no wifi (this post was pre uploaded) but have a lovely week love you all thankyou! 

Love abi xx
