So, funnily enough, I barely ever wear makeup anymore. Tragically, it's not because my skin has improved so much I feel like my naked face is way better to show to the world. It's more because I live over an hour away from where I work these days and have to get up obscenely early and sleep takes precedence over makeup application.
However, watching this video has made me miss wearing makeup a lot! Back in December, I received the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette for Christmas and it was true love at first sight. At the time, this was one of my favourite looks I created centred around the palette so I thought I'd film a "How To" type video about it. It's not a tutorial because I'm fully aware my makeup application skills leave a lot to be desired...
After applying my based and eyebrows, I add some blusher to my cheeks. In this case, it's Benefit's Sugarbomb blush, I lovely pastel peachy blush that I adore. Naturally I paired it with Benefit's High Beam highlighter on my cheek and brown bones to add a bit of light to my face.
For my eye makeup, I start with the shade X-Rated from the UD palette and sweep it across my lid. Then I take the darker pink shade, Coax, and apply it to my crease. I finish the eyes off with a flick of black liner on my lid (Rimmel Scandaleyes Micro Precision Liner) and the kohl pencil version on my waterline. Add Arbonne It's a Long Story Mascara and the job is done.
The lipstick I used for this particular look is the MUA One Direction Kiss You Lipstick - this shade is Moments, which is Niall's shade.
There we go, pretty simple. Pink and winged eyeliner is pretty much me down to the ground! Or it was, in my makeup wearing days!
