Recently, I kind of treated myself to a lot of new make up. I'm still waiting for some bits to come before I do a haul post but, I wanted to test some of these products out. Some products are new and some have been out for awhile that I've had my eye on and had my friends rave about them. It's almost a full face of impressions but not really since it isn't a full face of make up.
The products I already owned that I used for part of this look include -
Soap & Glory Speed Plump (£13) - I constantly use this before I apply my make up and I think I've gone through so many tubes!
Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation F1 (£9) - I love this foundation. It doesn't feel too heavy and covers up the redness on my skin and I just adore it.
Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer C1 (£4) - Love this concealer and does what it says on the tin.
Revolution Conceal & Correct White (£4) - I add a bit of the white concealer when I apply the other under my eye just to brighten it a little.
Benefit Ka-Brow (£20.50) - I don't think I use anything other than Benefit on my brows tbh.
SO! For the new products.
So, to start of the look I first started with my eyes. I never really know what eye look I want to do so I always start with them first as I tend to make mistakes. I first did my eyebrows and then went in with the Jaclyn Hill Morphe Palette (£37). I've only ever tried this as my Sister In Law has it and I knew I had to get it and I have not been disappointed whatsoever. For my eye look I used the shades Hunts in my crease and then put a bit of Jacz on top to deepen the outer corner of my eye. I then cut my crease and then used the beautiful shimmer shade Queen with a bit of Beam on top to brighten it a little. These shades are PIGMENTED! I only tapped my brush in the pay off was amazing. I am already obsessed.
I then did my foundation and concealer then used the Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Powder(£28) in the shade Cupcake. My friend raves about this powder and I can see why. No creasing, sits nicely on top of my foundation and concealer and I just already love it. There is a scent to it but it didn't really bother me.
For contour I used the Revolution Contour Palette from the 12 Days Of Christmas Box Set (£40) I really like this palette! The shades are gorgeous and I they blended so easily. They are pigmented so watch out as I swirled my brush a little bit and then had to keep blending. I also used it for a bit of bronzing and overall impressed. I'm excited to use the rest of the products in the box set.
For highlight I used the MAC Shiny Pretty Things/Extra Dimension Skinfinish Snowflushed(£25.50) THIS HIGHLIGHTER! It is gorgeous. I wish it showed up more in the pictures as it is gorgeous in real life and when you see it up close. It looks gold in the pan and when the light hits it at different angles it goes a little pink. It is so cute and applies nicely to the skin.
For my lips I used Jeffree Star Cosmetics Holiday Collection 2018 Velour Liquid Lipstick (£16) in the shade Hi How Are Ya? I've only recently started using Jeffree Star Cosmetics and as soon as this shade was announced I knew I had to get it. Is is the perfect Christmas red with specks of glitter in it. It is gorgeous and doesn't feel heavy on the lips!
And to tie it all together I finally used the Morphe Continuous Setting Mist (£15). It felt refreshing and really set everything together.
All in all, for testing new make up I can honestly say nothing disappointed. It's been a few hours since I applied the make up and it is still looking so fresh and nice and I can tell these are products I will be using a lot more off! This is the finished look and I love it and I feel very festive.
