Guest Week | A Spring Make-Up Look by Lucy Jayne!

Hello Lovelies. Welcome back to Beautiful You!

Today's guest post is written by a fellow beauty blogger called Lucy, I shall link her twitter here if you would like to follow her! Over to Lucy...

Hey everyone! Its Lucy here from lucyyjayne and today as part of Megan’s week celebration of her 6 months blogging (here's to many more!) I'm going to be showing you one of my favourite looks for an evening out in Spring. As you've probably guessed by the title it’s a Pink Smoky Eye look. Before we start can I just say I do not call myself a make-up artist and I don’t think I should be a make-up artist this is just how I like to do this look and I think it looks pretty. Enjoy!





 So I start off the look by using my Fix & Perfect PRO Primer to even out my skin and make my make-up last even longer. Next I take my Phwoarr Paint, which is a heavy under eye concealer from Seventeen, and blend it in with the Deluxe Crease Brush from Real Techniques. I don't blend it in fully because I feel you start to lose the effect of its full coverage, which is why I apply it before my foundation. I then take my Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation and apply it all over my face with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Next I use my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and apply that to any spots, redness or discolouration I have on my skin and take my Deluxe Crease Brush again to blend that in. Then I take my Stay Don't Stray Eye-shadow Primer from Benefit and apply it all over my lid and blend it in with my finger.


Now on to eyes, I started by applying my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pink Gold all over my lid but leaving the inner corner blank. Then using my Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush I take the first colour in the inner corner to give a subtle highlight. Then using the same brush I take the second colour all over my lid to make the pink tone brighter. Next I take the third colour on a Blending Brush from H&M in the outer corner and through the crease to add depth. Next, using the same colour, I take the Brow Brush from Real Techniques along my lower lash line to add to that smoky effect. Then, to keep the pink tone running through the look, I take the fourth colour on a Shading Brush from Models Own and lightly tap that over the brown.

Next I used the Cosmopolitan Eyelash Curlers because I have annoyingly straight lashes. Then, before applying the Falsies Mascara, I used the Collection Extreme 24 Hour Liner to line my upper lash line. Finally I took the Rimmel Scandal Eyes eye-liner in Black on my tight line to make my lashes look fuller and making the look more dramatic.


To fill in my eyebrows I used the MUA Pro Brow Kit and an Angled Brush from Models Own, but first I brushed them through with the brush that comes with the Rimmel London Brow Pencil. I used the light brown shade in the palette because I didn't want my brows to be too strong.



Next I took a Models Own Powder Brush and applied a quick dusting of Rimmel London's much loved Stay Matte Powder. Then using the same brush and the Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer I gave a subtle warmth to my skin tone in the hollows of my cheeks and on the temples of my forehead. Then using the same brush again I took a tiny amount of blush from Natural Collection called Pink Cloud as it is a lovely pink colour perfect for spring. To complete the face I used Benefit's High Beam Highlighter on the tops of my cheek bones to add a beautiful glow to my cheeks. 


Finally on to lips, I wanted quite a subtle lip because the main part of this look is the eyes. So after I applied Carmex Lip Balm to moisturise my lips I took Rimmel London's Kate Moss Lipstick in 03, which is a lovely nude shade. Though to keep with the pink trend I added a No7 Lip Gloss over the top in Allure to complete the make-up look.


And this is how the look turned out...



OK, I hope you enjoyed this post and like the look! Thank you for reading, love you all x
