Glamorous Make-Up Look

Recently I went to a party where I wore this make-up look. I couldn't decide what to wear so I did this simple, yet glamorous make-up first which would fit into any outfit. The key is well defined eyes paired with a neutral, yet sparkly shimmer base, topped off with a stand out bold lip in this luscious fuchsia colour- perfect for next season.


To obtain that perfect feline eye look, I used my new Maybelline gel liner in intense black which is my new make-up staple; a product which has totally transformed the way I wear eye liner. It is also an amazing dupe for the classic Bobbi Brown gel liner for half the price, and the two are practically the same. This product comes with a brush already, however I like to use my own as it is much thinner and thereby makes the line much more precise and controlled. I would recommend the Real Techniques fine liner brush for a super defined line. Start right in the inner corner and carefully take it across the lash line, getting slightly thicker as you do so. What's great about gel liner is it is so easy to work with if you struggle, much easier than liquid eye liner which often takes a few attempts even for the most experienced pros. When you get to the end of the lash line, follow where your bottom lash line curves up and then join the two lines together. Take this as big or as thick as you wish, depending on the look you are going for. As I am wearing a bold lip, I went for a subtle flick to create a look that was both wearable, yet glamorous. I also took this along the bottom waterline and right along the tear duct to extend the eye and create a look that was somewhat edgy. I love this product because it makes my eyes look so much bigger than without it, and makes your lashes appear longer too, win win! 
On my lips I am wearing my new favorite lipstick, Mattene Lipstick by MAC in shade 'Rare Exotic'. I love everything about this product down to the bright daring colour, to the matte texture, but also the durability of this product as it stayed on all night without any need to reapply. What's more, it smells unbelievable which is always a bonus.
Add your favorite cream sparkly pigment on the lids, and finish the look with highlighted cheeks to enhance your cheekbones and create the perfect pretty luminescent finish- my favorite is High Beam from Benefit- pricey but it is a good investment as it lasts for ages. I've had a mini version of mine now for well over 6 months and there is still more than half left, you only need the slightest bit of it so it will last you forever. It leaves a beautiful radiant shimmer on the cheeks, yet manages to appear somewhat natural. One of my beauty favorites of all time I think!



To go with this make-up I opted for my favorite crop top from ASOS, teamed with this printed blue skirt from H&M.

    2. I was thinking the exact same thing! Lucy, did you use any product to get your brows to look so perfect?

    3. Thank you hehe, I always use a brow brush to shape my brows and then fill them in with a soft powder from MUA in a dark brown shade(19) and sometimes use a brow gel- my favorite is from No7. In this post I detail how I fill in my brows-

  7. That skirt is gorgeous, i love it! And as for gel eyeliners, for Christmas I got a black Rimmel London one. I love the texture of it and all, but I feel like it wears off so quickly, and smudges easily. Even though it is waterproof - i don't know what I'm doing wrong wahhh :(

    1. Thank you! And maybe try using a good primer before you lay it on, and make sure you apply the liner quite liberally. Maybe try the Maybelline one next time though, I highly recommend it and I've had no problems with it yet :)
