Yesterday over on my Snapchat (Keeleysomers) I created this St.Patricks Day inspired look below. I used mostly drugstore/more affordable products for a change. I am very active over on Snapchat so if you want to see what I get up to daily head over there. Now onto the tutorial.
To prime my face I used the Nivea Men After Shave Balm in sensitive, I have been using this for about 3 months now and I am in love with this product if you have not tried it yet you need it in your life. For my Foundation I used my EX1 Invisiware foundation in the shade F200, I found this foundation through Nikki Tutorials on youtube a while back and oh my lord this stuff is amazing, the best part is it is only €16.95 from LookFantastic.com
Next for my concealer I used a new product from Catrice which is their Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer, My shade is 020 which has a slight yellow tone so it is perfect to highlight the face. I normally highlight the inner portion of my face as you can see by the picture below.
I then used a liquid highlighting pen also by Catrice. This was my first time using this as oh my god it is amazing it gives the most beautiful natural sheen to the face. I blended this in with my fingers as you can see below.
To set all of that in place I used the shade levetation from the Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette to set everywhere I put the concealer. I also used the Nyx Powder Foundation in the shade Soft Beige to set the rest of my face.
Next up I bronzed my face using the Essence Sun Club Shimmering in the shade 20. One of the girls that follows me on Snapchat told me about the bigger version of this bronzer which is a dupe for Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Give Me Sun. I like to use the Real Techniques Blush brush to apply my bronzer.
To contour I used the Essence Shape Your Face Contouring Palette in Ready, Set, Peach ! The contour shade is perfect in this for a natural contour. I used a small contour brush similar to the Blank Canvas Cosmetics F15. I like to chizel out my cheekbones and then blend the contour with my Blush Brush from Real Techniques.
I also used the blush from this palette to add a bit of colour to my cheeks. This blush is a beautiful peach shade with golden shimmer running through it. I applied this using my Blank Canvas Cosmetics F04.
For my eyes I used my Mac Soft Ochre Paint Pot as a base for my shadow. I also set this using the powder from the essence palette above.
As a transition shade I used Makeup Geek Peach Smoothie & Chickadee. A transition shade will help the shades you use to blend perfectly into each other. I am blending this into my crease.
Next I am blending Inglot shadow in the shade 383, this is a slightly darker and more orange toned shade than Chickadee. I wanted to keep the crease completely orange toned. I also blended Rule and Red Brick by Mac into the outer part of my crease.
On my lid I wanted a nice gold shade so I used this eyeshadow by Catrice Cosmetics in the shade Talk Like An Egyption. I placed this onto my lid using the flat side of the Blank Canvas Cosmetics E25/26 Blending Duo.
Under my eyes I wanted a pop of green so I used a Makeup Revolution single eye shadow in the shade Temptress. I applied this using an E23 by Blank Canvas Cosmetics. I later added the shade Chaos from the Makeup Academy Smokin’ Palette.
For my Liner I used the Essence Superfine Eyeliner to map out my wing. I then filled it in with the Primark Felt Tip Liner.
To finish up I added some mascara and applied Velvet Teddy by Mac to my lips. I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial. I tried my best to take screen shots from my Snapchat. I hope you all have a lovely St. Patricks Day for those of you who celebrate it and as always thank you for reading <3.
