Makeup Look #1: Spring Babydoll

Hi ladies! I have never posted a makeup look on my blog so I thought why not? This look has been my favorite lately: milky pink lips, baby pink cheeks and lots of lashes, perfect for spring! I am going to explain to you step by step what I did, so let's get to it!






Face:

1.I applied my foundation which is Covergirl Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 using a buffing brush. The reason why I chose this foundation is because my skin was really blotchy and I had a lot of redness, this covers them like a dream!
2.After foundation, I conceal little scars and breakouts with 
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Ivory and apply Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer in Radiant on my undereye circles, this makes them disappear in seconds! I always use my fingers to apply concealer.
3.Next, I apply a light dusting of Make Up For Ever HD Transcluscent Powder with a big fluffy powder brush all over my face to set my foundation and concealer, and also to make my blush and bronzer go on smoothly and evenly.
4.Then, I apply my all-time favorite blush Nars Gaiety, it is a bright bubblegum matte pink. Any bright pink blush will do, they are loads of alternatives and dupes for this one!
5.I contour my cheekbones, temples and nose using Too Faced Sun Bunny Light from my Too Faced Sweet Indulgence Palette to give my face a bit of warmth and definition. I apply this with a small tapered contour brush.
6.Last step is highlighter, I can never skip this step, it adds a gorgeous glow to the face. My obsession right now is Too Faced Candlelight Glow, it's a powder highlighter that has a stunning golden sheen to it.





Eyes:

1.I fill in my eyebrows with Urban Decay Brow Box in Brown Sugar using an angled brush. This is the best little eyebrow kit, it contains everything you need. I set my brows with ELF Eyebrow Gel to keep them in place all day.
2.I apply an eyeshadow primer all over my lids, I have really veiny eyelids so I need a tinted primer to cover them. I have been using Benefit Stay Don't Stray for over a year now and I can't live without it! It has a beige tint which is perfect for people like me with lots of discoloration on their eyelids!
3.You will only need two eyeshadow colors for this look, a shimmery champagne and a shimmery taupe. I use Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded all over my lids, on my tearduct area and on my browbone to higlight. I just apply it with my fingers, really simple. Next, I used Urban Decay YDK from my Naked 2 Palette on the outer half of my eyes blending it in the crease aswell with a fluffy blending brush. And that is it for the eyeshadow!
4.Next is eyeliner, you can use liquid or gel, whatever you like. I am using my favorite which is Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner to do a thick line on my upper lashline extending it slightly to create a small wing/cat eye. You can either use a small angled brush or a pointed eyliner brush, whatever floats your boat!
5.With a black pencil eyeliner, here I'm using Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Pencil and I apply this on my lower lashline (not into the waterline) and smudge it with a small pencil brush. On my waterline, for that wide eyes look, I chose a flesh toned pencil from Hard Candy.
6.Last step is the lashes! You can either put on fake eyelashes like I did, or use lots of mascara. I used some lashes that I got on Ebay, they do the trick! I used DUO Clear Lash Adhesive. For my bottoms lashes, since I wanted that big dolly eyes look, I applied 3 coats of mascara.




Lips:

For the lips, I chose to go with a milky baby pink and the most gorgeous one I have in my collection is Yves Saint-Laurent Rouge Volupté in Lingerie Pink #7. Another one that I absolutely love to wear with this makeup is MAC Saint-Germain, it is the perfect bright barbie pink.


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, I am looking forward to create more when I get some inspiration! Let me know if you enjoyed it ! Have a great day lovelies xx
