A natural make up look

This is an ideal make up look when your wanting to look natural and youthful so it would be ideal for when you've got work or for school as it doesn't take much time. On my skin after I had cleansed and moisturised I massaged the Laura Mercier oil free primer into my skin, you don't need to use a brush for this just use your fingers. Then I applied Bare Minerals matte foundation as this is a powder foundation I used quite a large powder brush to apply it then blended it in with my real techniques buffing brush. I find that all you need is two quite fine layers of this is all you need for daytime. I then used my Rimmel wake me up concealer under my eyes to hide any dark circles this concealer is a creamy texture and illuminates so its perfect for under the eyes. It comes with a applicator so I dot it under my eyes and then blend it with my finger. For any blemishes I use my benefit boi-ing concealer as this has much more coverage, just lightly pat this down on any spots you may have  theirs no need for blending in as this will wipe the concealer away from the area you need to disguise. I then just lightly contoured my face with the bourjois bronzing primer I applied this using my Real Techniques Contour brush just under my cheekbones blending it right up to my ear.

For my eyes I used both of my Urban Decay eye shadow palettes, I used Foxy from the Naked 2 palette over my eyelid and slightly under my eye using a blending brush this is just a pale nude colour. I then slightly contoured my eye by used the Naked eye shadow from the first Naked palette which is just a light brown shade, I blended this using the same brush into my socket and blending it slightly upwards until I got my desired effect. To create a bit of definition I used Smog which is a mid brown with slight orange undertones (which makes blue eyes stand out more) just on the lash line using my Real Techniques Detailer brush. Lastly I coated my top eyelashes with Loreals False Lash Flutter Mascara, I left my bottom as I wanted my eyes to appear larger and more fresh faced. For my eyebrows I used Elfs Eyebrow kit in Ash it is a complete dupe of the Benefits eyebrow kit and only £3.75! It comes with a powder, wax and a angled brush. Then to complete the look a slapped on a little bit of Loreals Glam Shine 6 hour lipgloss in Forever Nude.
