Today’s feature in this month’s “Lovely Light” series is a makeup tutorial courtesy of the talented Natalie Hunter – MUA. Here’s a step by step tutorial on how to recreate this lovely sunkissed, shimmery-eye and shiny-lip look for yourself.
Base: MAC Studio sculpt buffed into the skin with a real techniques buffing brush, Powered with a loose powder such as Napoleon translucent.
Cheeks: Nars Laguna Bronzer in the cheek contours with Napoleon Bronzer for colour on the apple of the cheeks. A light shimmery highlight on top of the cheek bone, with Napoleon shimmer dust in number 37.
Eyes: Start with a base of Napoleons shimmer dust in No 37 all over the eyelid, right up to the brow bone.
In the crease (socket) of the eye, with a dome shadow brush, add, Ben Nye medium brown Matte eye shadow, focusing mainly on the outter corner of the eye. Blend to soften any harsh lines with a MAC 217 brush….my favourite brush in the WHOLE world.
Line the upper and lower lash line with MAC eye kohl pencil in smoulder. Smudge with an angled brush to create a soft smokey line.
Coat the lashes with Maybelline’s The Falsies, top and bottom.
Brows: With a real techniques brow brush and a light brown shadow, fill in and shape the brows to suit the face shape.
LIPS: The key to this lip is to gain as much shine as possible. I used a clear MAC Dazzleglass lip gloss and added a touch of Napoleons No 37 for that extreme shimmer highlight……
Your look is complete! ENJOY and have fun recreating this.
