Beauty | Bare Minerals Make Up Lesson Part Two
On Tuesday I wrote about my trip to the Bare Minerals counter inside Debenhams at Intu Milton Keynes. You can read the first part here.
Once my foundation, concealer, powder had been done it was time to start on my eyes and lips.
I opted not to have any eyeshadow applied, it's one thing that I just don't wear, for someone who can't see much at all without my glasses applying eyeshadow can be really tricky and it never looks good.
I did go for some eyeliner, but rather than going for my usual black or brown and even more recently Navy blue, I chose a gorgeous purple, the lasting line in Endless Orchid. It was really subtle on but you could definitely see the definition it added to my eyes. Another product on my list of must haves!
Mascara was a must for me, I always find that it makes my eyes stand out from behind my glasses and also makes me look a little less tired! The mascara used was the Flawless Definition in black. It gave me a good amount of definition and didn't make my lashes too long, there is nothing more annoying that having my lashes brushing against my glasses and leaving smudge marks.
Last of all were lips! It's only in the last couple of years that I've started wearing lipstick, I'd always been so self conscious of my big lips the last thing I wanted to do was draw attention to them. Nowadays I can't get enough of reds, pink and nice dark berry. Josephine first of all used a lip pencil in the shade Vibe all over my lips and then went over the top with a lipstick in the colour Queen, it was this gorgeous dark plum colour. I loved it so much I had to purchase it straight away!
The final look!
If like me you are a bit of a novice when it comes to make up I would highly recommend one of these make up lessons. I learnt a lot and now feel more confident about applying make up - especially highlighter and blusher, two things that I've stayed away from before as I had no idea where to apply them. I'm looking forward to my next lesson. Thank you Josephine!
