Mummy's Makeover

Hello my lovelies!
I don't know if  you remember, back in December I did my Granny's makeover and it was so fun to do. If you haven't seen it the link is just here. Today I've got my mum's makeover for you. Now I'm not saying I'm a professional at this but its just something fun to do isn't it. Plus if you're passionate about something you should just practice it all the time.
So this whole thing came actually from my mum, I've already asked to do her make up but she didn't really want me to do it. When she suggested it I was really surprised but hey ho, I've got a new blog post!

Now I don't normally do other people's makeup so when you get to it you see that it's actually really hard. Most of the time you're just trying not to scare them or put anything in their eye. My least favourite is doing the mascara. That sucker is so hard to do! What are the supposed to do?! Look up? Look down? I don't even know. I think it's really good practice either way. Who said makeup isn't an art form? I think it's so hard, but I'm determined to learn.

I think it's interesting when you see on Instagram people doing their makeup and it seems so effortless and you think I can do that but when it comes to it you have no idea how to perfectly blend these two shades together. You can blend all you want but these eyes just aren't gonna be perfect.

To start off, I used the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum all around the face and moving down to the neck slightly. I then used the NYX Dark Circles concealer under the eyes and on some blemishes on the face to even out the complexion. My mum has quite a pink complexion so I wanted to use more yellow shades to even out the colours. To set everything in place I used the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder all over the T zone and focusing on setting the under eye area as well as the lid. To bronze the face I used the Bourjouis bronzing powder just under the cheekbones and a little on the forehead. To prep for the eyeshadow, I used the Maybelline 24 hour Colour Tattoo in the shade Creme De Nude all over the lid and a little bit under the eyes to make sure the shade doesn't smudge and stay in place all day.

Moving on to the eyeshadows. I'm using the Naked 2 palette for the eyes and the brows. I started off with the shade Tease as the base colour and then used the shade Snakebite in the crease to smoke out the look. I also put a little bit of this shade on the outer lower corner of the eye to accentuate the smokey effect. Lastly I used the shade Bootycall for the inner crease for that slight pop of shimmer. For the brows I used the shade Tease with a flat eco tools brush. I wanted to keep them quite natural so I only filled them in a little bit. To finish off the look, for the lips I used LA Colours Lipstick in the shade Champagne.

So that is my finished look, I hope you like it. And don't forget to check out the post where I did my granny's makeup. Thanks mummy for letting me do this hehe, love you!
