You may have seen our classic red lip Valentines look earlier this week ... but how about something for those who would like to go a little 'extra' this holiday?! Today we are showing you how to get this adorable cherub inspired look with sparkly eyes, dainty freckles and a chubby pout!
Lets start with our brows for this look. We are first going through them using the spoolie end of our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx brow brush to lightly shape the brows and tame the hair.
Now, using the brush end we are going to work some Collection brow powder though, defining the shape further and filling in any sparse areas.
We then go over the brows with a little clear brow gel to lock them in place.
Taking our Bella&Bear Golden cat concealer brush and some Essence Camouflage concealer now, we are going to carve out the brows - outlining them with the product and then pulling it outward to blend into our foundation later.
Lets think about the eyes now, we start with a primer to lock our colours in place and make them extra vibrant. We're using the Kryolan Eyeshadow primer here.
Now, taking our Bella&Bear Sand cat brush and a matte ivory shadow we are sweeping it over the lid and up to the brow bone.
We are going to use our Bella&Bear Bornean Bay cat brush now, with a matte dusty pink blush - we're using the Essence Mosiac blush here, and we are working it onto the outer and inner corners of the eyes, leaving the centre of the lid blank.
Picking up our Bella&Bear Golden cat brush again, and that same concealer, we are going to press it onto the blank area of the lid.
Next, using our Bella&Bear marbled cat brush and we are going to spritz it with some Urban Decay All nighter setting spray, and then use it to pick up some golden shadow and pack it ontop of the concealer. You can spritz over the eye to lock that in place if you'd like! We're using the shade 'Sun' from the BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic palette here.
We then take our Bella&Bear Eye and mighty curlers and we curl those lashes for some lift, keeping the tool on each eye for 20-30 seconds. We lock that curl in with a coat of the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara - keeping the bottom lashes bare for now.
To take things up a notch we are going to apply a set of super wispy falsies. We use our Bella&Bear Angled Tweezers to place some GWA Interstellar lashes as close to the natural lash line as possible for an undetectable finish.
Its time to work on the skin now - we want it glowing and flawless. But, we have to start with a primer to mask those pores and make our base smooth. Were using our fingers to work some Bodyshop Instablur primer over the face.
Now, we are going to go in with a full coverage foundation. We love the Toofaced born this way foundation and we are mixing it with a few drops of the Bodyshop Drops of Light highlight before applying it to the skin with our Bella&Bear Jaguar angled kabuki.
We want to keep the skin dewy for this look, but we must still set our concealer to prevent it from creasing and sliding. So, we take our Bella&Bear Tiger brush and some Laura Mercier Translucent powder and we press it over the areas we concealed. If you prefer a matte finish or have a particularly oily skin then you can dust the whole face with setting powder.
Lets go over with a spritz of the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray in a 'X' shape over the face, followed by a 'T' shape. This will lock that base in place!
To follow, we take our Bella&Bear leopard face brush and a matte pink blush and we are swirling it onto the apples of the cheeks for a cute rosy glow!
Now, we use our Bella&Bear Caracal eyeliner brush and some more of that Limecrime velvetine and we are going to create some lovely Faux Freckles across the cheeks and nose! Try to do different size freckles for a more lifelike look.
Then, we are using our Bella&Bear Jaguarundy brush to apply some more of that pink blush along the lower lash line, followed by a coat of mascara on those bottom lashes!
We also decided to add a little glitter to the cheekbones to make this look extra cute! We spritzed our Bella&Bear Marbled cat brush with some more setting spray and then used it to lightly dust some champagne glitter over the cheekbones!
Lets work on the lips now. We start by outlining them with some liner - over lining slightly for a precious pout.
Finally, we are going to take our Bella&Bear Cheetah Duo Fiber powder brush and a pink highlight - we love the IHeartRevolution in Iced Hearts - and we are generously dusting it over the high cheekbones, down the centre of the nose, on the cupids bow. We also use our finger tips to dot some on the inner corner of the eye.
For our hair, we use our Bella&Bear Brush on you detangler and we brush through the hair for smooth, knot-free locks. We then pull the hair into 2 braids and pin it to the back of the head as flat as possible.
Finally, we pull on our pretty auburn wig to really finish the look off!
