So this blog post is going hand in hand with a blogger contest that has been launched by Superdrug. The challenge? To create a simple on trend look, using 3 make up products.
Just to clarify, I’m entering a contest run by them, not sponsored! I purchased the products used by myself!
Now Luke and I are popping out today, and anyone with kids will know how near impossible it is to get ready in a hurry, whilst keeping a bubba amused!
So, I chose one palette, a BB cream and a powder to keep everything in place. The weather is beautiful today, so I didn’t want to go to heavy, but I ended up with my always worn smokey eye!
So, starting off, I applied the Rimmel London Matte BB cream. This is a new purchase for me, and I love it! It does exactly what it says on the tube – perfectly matte! I don’t usually suffer with oily or shiny skin anyway, but sometimes I like to try new products to see if I like them. And this is a winner! It’s so light wearing and matches my skin tone beautifully (my shade is light) This product also has the bonus of SPF15, which is perfect as the sun is out!
To make sure my make up stays put, I set it all with another new product, the Collection Lasting Perfection Powder. It’s no secret that the Lasting Perfection range is hugely popular, and I personally love the concealer. But I saw this powder and decided to give it a go! It’s gorgeous!! The powder is ultra light, and smells like talc!! It has 16 hour wear too, which is fantastic if you want to keep your make up set all day! I went for the colour Medium, as I wanted to add a touch of colour to my face!
Finally, the eyes. With the challenge of only using 3 products, I decided on a palette, which I could be ‘safe’ with the colours, but use them in multiple ways.
So I used the NYX Champagne and Caviar palette – gorgeous for creating neutral and dramatic looks, and a perfect matte black that can be doubled up as a liner.
I used the pale pink and the glittery taupe to create the base colour, then smoked it out with the dark matte brown. This was then finished with the black shadow as the liner.
I don’t usually wear mascara, so I wasn’t bothered about not using one! And as for lips…well, I had to sacrifice something!! I’ll add something later!
So this is the final look!! It’s a little but of a pants photo, but you get the general idea!!
Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you all in my next post!!
