I’m going to start a new mini series on my blog called go-to look were I will go through my favourite products to use for a particular makeup look. I’m going to start of with my essentials for my daytime glam look. This makeup look is perfect for shopping trips, daytime parties and events.
- Light fresh skin
- Natural contour
- Glossy lips
- Glowing completion
For this look I love BB creams and light coverage foundations, if I was to wear foundation I would always go for the Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation as it looks like second skin and gives a semi-matte finish. Also a BB cream is perfect for this look as most contain SPF and have a light coverage that evens out your skin tone. One of my favourites is the Garnier BB cream this one doesn’t have an SPF but I usually wear an SPF anyway, but this BB cream really does blurr out imperfections while making your skin look natural and flawless. Another product that I love to use is the Lush Skin Tint in Jackie Oats this is a light skin tint that is made from natural ingredients that are good for your skin, also contains a natural SPF.
Contour with this look I tend to keep it light, I go in with the Hoola bronzer as it has more of a cool toned finish and no shimmer, so I can use it to contour my face slightly and give me more of a healthy glow. Blush for a healthy glow has got to be the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick in rose, I love this as it just looks so natural and makes your skin so glowy. Highlight is a must but not too full on for day time, the Benefit watts up highlighter is my go to for a champagne glow and is natural but still beautiful.
My go-to shadows are definitely rose golds and mauves, so the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette is perfect for a daytime glam look. I actually use this palette most days. Also I love to apply a little bit of eyeliner just to give the look something extra, ever since I got the Urban Decay Razor Sharp Liner I can’t stop doing winged liner, it just makes it so easy. I have the shade snakebite which is a bronze shade, so it looks less harsh than black but still gives you that flattering effect of winged liner. Lashes have to be big for me lashes can change your look dramatically, so I always curl my lashes and my favourite mascara right now is the Kiko luxurious lashes. For eyeshadow I start with the shade LIMIT in the crease, then the shade NOONER to add depth to the crease. On the lid I apply a mixture of BUZZ and TRICK. On outer-V I put LIAR then I add some winged liner with the Urban Decay Razor Sharp liner in SNAKEBITE. I then curl my lashes and apply lots of Kiki luxurious lashes mascara.
I love lipstick for everyday but for daytime glam I like to use lipgloss because it makes your lips really shiny and goes with the glowing look and brings the whole makeup look together. Right now I’m loving the Tanya burr lipgloss in champagne toast. It’s a sheer pink gloss with shimmer. Super pretty and also smell amazing too.
To finish the whole look and to set my face I use the Mac Fix+, this will make my highlight stand out more, make my foundation look more like skin. It also feels really nice to apply during the day, especially to freshen up your makeup.
