I don’t normally write beauty posts but I wanted to tak about something a little different this week.
For my birthday weekend I decided to get my makeup done by the talented Kaeleigh Baister who you can find on Instagram @kaeleighbaister.
As I don’t usually don’t wear a lot of makeup I wanted to go for a look that stood out … and what stands out more than glitter and shimmer? With that in mind we decided on going for a smoky look with gold and silver glitter on the crease and underneath my eyes.
For the base we went for a matte 24 hour long lasting finish. I usually rely on brands like Nars or Mac for long wearing foundation. I have sensitive skin too and I still find these brands to have great results. My skin never gets dried out or irritated either which is a plus.
The foundation I am currently using is Nars all day luminous foundation. I couldn’t recommend it more, especially because of the various shades it comes in to match your completction. You can find it here:
I tend to mix and match my makeup with drugstore brands as well as more high end ones like Bobbi Brown, Charlotte Tilbury, Urban Decay, Mac and Nars.
I always rely on Bobbi Brown for a good bronzer. It is always lightweight on your skin and leaves a great finish. You can find the link to this below.
For eyes I definitely love Urban Decay! I tend to use all the Naked Palettes and I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Naked Heat one. All the warm tones are perfect for fall coming.
If you are ever looking for affordable eye shimmer/glitter, you should check out Kiko Milano’s glitter eyeliner and shimmer pots. They are amazing. The eyeliner only retails at £6.90 and the shimmer pots £12.90. It should definitely be on everyone’s wish list.
Finally, for lipstick I tend to use gloss or pencil liners. However I do love Charlotte Tilburry’s lipsticks. They come in the most amazing shades. Currently I wear Stoned Rose which is the perfece nude/red shade. You can find it below:
You can see my final makeup look for Saturday. I loved it! Definitely check out Kaeleigh Baisters work on Instagram for makeup ideas and bookings.
