Weekend Makeup Look

Hello Beauties,

A few weekends ago, it was really nice and sunny in London, so I thought I'd try out a bold lip with lots of lashes for my makeup. I've not really worn a look like this before and thought it was lovely for the daytime and weather. I kept the eye makeup quite neutral and focused mostly on big, black lashes and the red lips.

I posted this picture on Instagram and got some people asking for details on what I used, so I thought I'd dedicate a post to it. I actually just ended up spending the day walking around London, shopping and sightseeing. which was lovely.

For the base, I went for the No7 Stay Perfect Foundation. I really like this foundation. I don't find it too heavy on the skin and it evens out my skintone nicely. It's a great match for me and am very glad to find this in Boots. I then used the MAC Pro-Longwear Concealer under my eyes and set that in place with the Soap and Glory Kick-Ass Powder. To complete the cheeks, I went in with the Contour Kit from Barry M and NARS Multiple in South Beach, to highlight.

On the eyes, I primed with Urban Decay Primer Potion and went for a light base of MAC eyeshadows in All that Glitters, Woodwinked on the outer corner and Saddle in the crease. I did a winged liner with the Maybelline gel liner and used the Bourjois Eye Liner in Up and Brown for the waterline. For the lashes, I went in with a coat of Maybelline Lash Sensational followed by a coat of L'oreal Miss Manga (Black Angel). I have really been liking this combination of mascaras recently and can't believe I've never thought to try out mixing them before. Together, they gave me very big, voluminous lashes with no falsies.

I then finished off with a bright, bold red lip. Here I used the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Red Diva and then MAC Russian Red. This is my new favourite red lip combo. It gives such a lovely, matte red colour that literally stays on for ages. I managed to eat 2 meals, with drinks with none of this fading at all (not even in the middle!)
Have you tried a bold lip? What are some of your favourite products for this?
