Revolution Amazing Lipstick Shade Crush
Starting with my actual skin and the usual base makeup routine I have. I started with adding my primer and with very porous skin, I have to be generous with it. Once dry I add a little red lipstick under my eye. Now, this may seem crazy but this is to colour correct the darkness under there. I’ve tried lots of colour correcting concealer but none of them work as well as red lippy, so there you go. Adding some green concealer on my nose and chin area as I am prone to red skin there. If you are also prone to red spots or areas this will help defuse the rednesd. Once applied I use a buffer brush to buff out the product. Being careful to not rub it off just make it more opaque on the skin.
It’s time to lay the foundation. I have used Revlon colour stay foundation which is a new product (I bought) that I will be reviewing soon! Grabbing my damp sponge and just buff this all over my face in a gentle pressing motion. I always worry when I’m done as you look a little odd and ghost like.
Next I will add my under eye concealer and I used collection Lasting Perfection concealer today. Again, I’ll buff this out with the sponge and add my powder to bake this area. Baking is great as this area can crease and move the makeup. Adding baking powders makes that not happen so your under eye makeup is on point all day. Mum of three boys, lacking in sleep, I need to bake! For a simple look I’ll only bake my under eye. Just to have a more relaxed look. Here I used the Revolution banana baking powder (Which again I bought and am reviewing for you soon).
Contour and Blush
You can add a contour or some blush. I added both as I am a pale person. Sis needs the colour back in my face and skin to look normal!
I contoured my side’s of my face, my chin and my forehead. Simple apples of the cheeks and buffer brush it outwards towards the top of your ear. If needed you can add a little circular motion. Be careful not to add brush marks. I used the Barry M make me blush blush. Fpr thr contour I used the Revolution duo face sculpt but only the darker shade.
So I kept the eyes makeup routine REALLY simple. I chose one light colour from the MUA Undressed pallet. Then adding a darker shade to the outside upper corners. Including the crease and a small way into the eyelid. I then grab my blending brush and went in small and light circular motion to blend it out. Taking care to get rid of any harsh lines but not rub any off.
Added a lick of L’oreal tattoo liquid eyeliner and also lined my top waterline with Rimmel black eyeliner. I also used Rimmel white liner on the bottom to give my eyes a brighter look. Finished with a coat of Rimmel mascara Wonder’ful.
I should mention that I used Collection pomade on my eyebrows. Which are in need of a good reshape but hey ho, caterpillar eyebrows we go.
At this point I always add my powder just to meld everything together and dry any moisture of my skin. One powder I’m enjoying is the Rimmel perfect match powder. Which again is a new product I will be trying and reviewing soon for you.
Again, I kept the lips SUPER simple. Just a quick coat of Makeup Revolution lippy in shade Crush.
That is it. Twenty minutes TOPS and your ready to roll. Simple, quick and perfect if you’re late for work, on the school run or just are lacking in time of a morning. Mix up the colours and it looks completely different. Add some lashes and a lock of clear gloss and take it to a more glam look. You can really mix and match this look to suit you.
