MAKE-UP LOOK: Bronzed Rose

When I was round my mums house the other day, I rummaged around my make-up draw which I haven't done in a LONG TIME! I found lots of treasures and two particular eyeshadows who screamed at me to put them together in a make-up look! (Not really, but it's nice to be creative... But they did go together beautifully!)

I don't really wear eye-shadow much, simply because when I was going to college, I just didn't have time to 'faff' about in the mornings (usually because I was running late) and it's that kind of place where it's just relaxed and chilled. However, I do like to spend time on my make-up especially if I am going out to a party or clubbing with my friends.


These are the face products I used.

Firstly, I prepped my face with my usual moisturizer and allowed that to sink in to my skin. For foundation, I used Rimmel's 'Wake Me Up' Foundation (there is a review on this product on my blog) and using a sponge, I applied this all over my face, starting in the center around my nose and then my chin as this is where most of my redness and blemishes are that I want maximum coverage on.

I then set the foundation with my powder. I used Maybelline's Dream Matte Powder and I really like this powder because it takes the shine out of your skin and makes it look flawless!

To tan my face up a bit, I used Guerlain Terracotta Tan Booster in 02 Medium. I used this on the hollows of my cheeks, nose, chin, a little on my forehead and my neck to ensure I don't have any tide marks.

For my blush, I used Body Shop's Cheek Colour (the colour has rubbed off on the label, so I have to use their website as a guide) and I believe it is the colour '10 Sweet Nutmeg'. However, any blush you have will look good with this look.

For my eyebrows, I used Body Shop's Brow and Liner Kit in '01 Blonde and Auburn'. I simply filled in and arch my eyebrows to darken them ever so slightly because my eyebrows are naturally very light. 

Moving on to the eye shadow, I used two from the No. 7 range. The pink is '42 Antique Rose' and the brown is '65 Truffle'. I used a Body Shop eye shadow brush to colour the outer lid and then used a Jemma Kidd rounded brush to deepen the crease with the same eye shadow. I then used a clean Jemma Kidd colour brush to blend the edges to make sure it didn't look to harsh and more natural. With the Body Shop eye shadow brush (which I wiped off on a piece of tissue), I put some of the pink on my inner eye lid and blended across into the other colour to make it more natural.

For my eyelashes, I just used my usual Maybelline 'The Colossal Cat Eye's Volume Express' mascara. I usually do two coats to make sure my lashes stay long and voluptious!


Lastly, for lips, I used an Avon lipstick in 'Pout'. I got this from my friend who is an Avon representative. My mum has this and I tried it out on myself and loved it so I had to buy it! It's a really cute, girly pink but in person, it has elements of a nude lipstick.

Please excuse my bad skin! My chin is a real problem area at the moment!

Here is the final look! What do you think? I feel like this is perfect for everyday and this will definitely be a look that I will do when I'm on holiday because it is so easy to do!

Let me know what you think!
