BeautyCon London 2015: My Makeup

Blue and yellow eyes

This is what I wore to BeautyCon London 2015. This will be a long one – I don’t know how I end up using so many products but I just do!

Base

I applied Benefit the POREfessional primer with my EcoTools foundation brush.

I mixed my No7 Instant Radiance foundation in Deeply Honey with my No7 Stay Perfect foundation in Mocha (because I am in between shades) using my EcoTools foundation brush.

I used the EcoTools brush to test the shade and then dab the foundation all over my face once I was happy.

I blended the foundation using my e.l.f. stippling brush.

I prepared my eyelids for the eyeshadow using my Kiko Eye Base Primer applied with my No7 eyeshadow brush.

I used my Bobbi Brown cream blending brush to apply Benefit Boi-ing concealer in shade 4 under my eyes. I blended it out using my Real Techniques pointed foundation brush.

Eyes

I wanted to do something a little different with my eyes.

Using my Teez flat stiff brush, I applied the matte yellow shade from my Sleek Ultra Mattes V1 730 (the brights) palette to my eyelids only, stopping at the crease.  It didn’t look very bright so I used the same brush to go over it using the matte white shade. I then built up the yellow colour over the top using the same brush.

Using my MAC eye shader brush 239, I then applied the darker matte blue on the eye socket bone, from the inner corner of my eye to the outer corner. I had to be very careful not to let the two colours overlap or they would have given me a green crease, which I did not want. I very gently blended the blue shade out to create the arch shape using the same brush.

Using my e.l.f. eyeshadow ‘C’ brush I applied the yellowest matte shade from the Sleek Au Naturel 601 eyeshadow palette from my brows to the blue arch.  I used this shade to perfect the line of the blue arch.

I finished the eyeshadow by putting a little matte white eyeshadow from the Sleek Ultra Mattes V1 pallet into the inner corners of my eyes using MAC pencil brush 219 to give a little pop.

I used my Bare Minerals stiff bristled angled brush to define my brows using my Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Mahogany.  I then used L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper in medium/dark to comb through my brows and neaten them.  To finish the brow area, I used my Real Techniques detailer brush to apply YSL Touch Eclat in shade 5 above and below my brows to perfect the arch and highlight.

I applied my lashes (not pictured but see this post) then lined the areas that the lashes didn’t reach using MAC eyeliner brush 209 and MAC fluidline gel eyeliner in Blacktrack. I also lined over the top of the false eyelashes. I lined my lower waterline using Soap & Glory waterproof eyeliner in Superblack.

I applied one coat of Givenchy Phenomen’eyes mascara to my top lashes only to open up my eyes.

Contour

Using my Models Own angled brush and my Sleek Face Form in medium, I applied the darkest colour to the hollows of my cheeks, sides of my forehead and nose and along my chin.  I then used the tip of the Models Own angled brush to highlight the tops of my cheekbones and I used the same brush to apply a sweep of the bronzer on the apples of my cheeks to give a little colour. I roughly blended this using the same brush.

I highlighted under my eyes, the middle of my forehead, the bridge of my nose and my cupids bow using Givenchy Mister Light in shade 5 and my Real Techniques pointed foundation brush.

Lips and finishing touches

Lips and final touches

I wanted to wear natural lips so I shaded in my lips using my Bobbi Brown lip pencil in Cocoa and then applied Bobbi Brown lipstick in Cocoa over the top.

I blended all of the contouring powders one last time using my e.l.f complexion brush and then I applied a very light dusting of Bare Minerals Mineral Veil to my nose to combat shine, using my Real Techniques Duo-fiber face brush.

I set my concealer using the Bare Minerals Mineral Veil and my Real Techniques setting brush.

Finally I set my make-up using the Urban Decay All Nighter Makup Setting Spray.
