Top 5 Nude Lipsticks <3

So these are my top 5 holy grail nude lipsticks and swatches. I could not live without them, and you guys know how much I love a nude lip ❤

  • 5: MAC – Hue 

I am in love with colour! It was introduced into my life by one of my best friends and I have thanked my lucky stars that I found it. It’s creamy and the perfect colour to go with any makeup look, whether you want to dress it up or down 🙂

Spring/Summer 2014: Pop of Colour <3

Hello loves, this is going to be a very simple, quick everyday bright look. All you will need is a matte brown eyeshadow, your favourite blush and some colourful lipstick! I am loving it, especially since it very summer orientated. So lets get started…

First set your face with a primer and apply your foundation, concealer, bronzer and fill in those brows ;). For my blush, eyeshadow and highlight I only used my Kim’s Kardazzle palette 🙂

  • Prime your eyes using a concealer or eyeshadow primer.
  • Taking a matt brown colour and a blending brush gently blend this into the crease from outer corner to inner corner. Blend upwards towards your browbone and apply on your outer ‘V’ also.
  • Apply some winged liner and mascara. *Also false lashes if comfortable!
  • Highlight your browbone and cheekbones using a white highlighter.
  • Using a pink blush, apply to the apples of your cheeks and pat upwards towards the top of your ear.

Moving onto the lips, use any bright coloured lipstick that you own! I used MAC Show Orchid.

  • Line your lips with the lipstick using a small pointed lip brush and apply the lipstick all over the lips.
  • Remember to mositurise your lips before you apply anything using a chapstick 🙂

I hope you enjoy this look and try it out! ❤  Stay Beautiful! Xo

Lets jump in 😉 First you’ll need to prime your eyes with a concealer or eyeshadow primer.

  • Then, take the matte brown colour and gently blend this into the crease as a transition colour. Keep blending until your comfortable with the result.
  • Taking a flat eyeshadow brush mix the light brown and gold shimmer shadows and press all over the lid, keep building this up until you comfortable. You can so as light or as dramatic as you want.
  • Blend this out into the crease and keep BLENDING. Take the matte brown again and blend more into the crease. Remember to BLEND,BLEND,BLEND.
  • Taking the urban decay eyeshadow brush on the larger side mix some of the grey onto the outer corner of the lid and blend up into and across the crease once more. Again, build up until you like what you see.
  • Finally take a small bit of the copper colour and lightly blend this over what you have already done above the crease. This part is optional btw 😉
  • For the under eye, just take some matte brown and blend under your eye along with the copper colour or gold shimmer colour. Whichever you think will suit you most!
  • Apply a thin band of black liner and do a small wing to emphasize the eye as well as the lashes. Use this liner on the lower lash line also and if you can tightline.
  • Apply some falsies and blend them with your own lashed using mascara.
  • Highlight the inner tearduct with the hightlight colour and the browbone.

Now onto contouring and highlighing and blush, my favourite part ❤ You can use any bronzer and concealer you wish for this I used the CrownBrush cream palette and the blush colours from the Kardazzle palette.

  • Contour your cheeks, forehead, jawline and nose (all completely optional) and blend, blend, blend. We don’t want any harsh lines!
  • Highlight under the eyes, forehead, center of the nose and chin (again, optional)
  • For blush, mix the two pinks in the Khroma palette.
  • To highlight the cheekbone use the highlight colour in the Khroma palette

Use a stippling powder or any blending face brush to blend everything together for the airbrushed appearance.

Use any setting brush to help your makeup stay on and last longer!
