Get Ready With Me: Natural Glam!

How long has it been since I posted a step by step breakdown of what I've got on my face? Too long!!! So today I'm going to go through the steps taken to achieve a natural glam look.

First things first, wash them hands, girl! Then pop in lenses if you're blind like my good self! Then take some skincare over your face, I chose my Nivea 2 in 1 Cleanser and Toner, followed by my Nivea Q10 Day Cream.

Starting with the base, I primed with W7 Prime Magic Anti Redness, and went in with my Rimmel Stay Matte foundation which I applied with a round top kabuki brush and then pressed over with a cheap makeup sponge. I set it with Natural Collection Pressed Powder in Cool. For contour I took my Sleek Face Contour Kit in Light and contoured my cheekbones, temples and under my jawline. I took a Catrice Blush in Pinkerbell across my cheeks - I was going for a natural rosy glow. I didn't bother with highlighting this time around. Pure laziness on my part. 

I took an angled brush and the shade Tease from the Naked 2 palette to define by brows, and set them with my W7 clear brow gel

For my eyes, I primed my lids with Essence I Heart Stage and took Tease through the crease all the way to the inner corner of my eye on a fluffy brush. Then I took Busted on a small flat brush and carefully pressed it into the outer third of the crease and very outer corner, dragging it under my eye to my lower lashline to about halfway. I blended this all out with a clean fluffy brush and went back between Busted and blending until I was happy with the definition. To amp up the glam side of this look I pressed Half Baked onto the empty space on my lid, blending gently to diffuse it into the darker shades. This created a soft yet glam smokey eye. For my liner wings I used my NYX liquid liner in Glam Golden which is a deep antique looking gold shade. Then I lined my waterline with a black pencil liner, and applied a thick coat of Catrice Better Than False Lashes mascara. 

To finish the look, I hummed and deliberated over the lips, but in the end I opted for Mac Cremesheen in Creme Cup. This creamy nude pink makes this a great every day lip color and so it completes a great natural look for the day time.

Pardon my dorky face in the last picture, it made me laugh so I thought I would include it!! 

What do you think of this look?
