I just thought I’d do a quick little makeup post for you because all the products I used for this look are things I’ve picked up at fab events this week.
I started off with the brand new Ideal Flawless foundation from Avon that the lovely Sam Chapman from Pixiwoo chose for me aboard the Avon bus. I’ll be posting about that really soon.
It’s a gorgeous foundation (my shade is Medium Wheat) it’s super dewy with excellent coverage and comes in a whopping 16 shades (that’s a first for Avon). It costs £12.50 and will be launching in February 2012 with Alesha Dixon fronting the campaign.
Next I used a gorgeous new bronzer called Holiday Glow (Hollywood Shade 1), £8 from Look Beauty which gives a lovely subtle colour and very flattering shimmer.
Also from Look Beauty was the beautiful goldy shimmer eyeshadow – Charm shade 7, £4. It’s so easy to apply – I used my fingers – and looks super pretty. Check out my post on the Look Beauty launch here.
Avon is up again next with the Glimmerstick Diamonds in Flashy Copper which I used to line my eyes, and then a good slick of the Supershock Max mascara. I picked both of these up on the Avon tour bus too!
Love the mascara – it lengthens and volumises and reminds me quite a lot of the Max Factor False Effect Fusion. It definitely ranks up their with some of my fave mascaras. Loving it!
Last but not least was the lipstick from Youngblood. When I saw it at the press show, it was love at first sight and I was not disappointed. The shade is casablanca – a beautiful pinky peachy goldy colour that lights up my face. Really loving lipstick at the moment! Youngblood is a gorgeous mineral makeup range and the lipstick costs £14.
