Shimmering Shamrock look
Top of the mornin to ya! St Patricks day is coming up fast, so today we thought we would show you how to get this cute shamrock inspired look! Its perfect for all of your festivities; from brunch, to drinks with the girls or parties!
Lets start with the brows for this look. We begin by taming the hairs by brushing through using the spoolie end of our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx Brow Brush.
Next, using the angled brush end we are going through the brows with some Revolution brow pomade to fill in the sparser areas and give a more defined shape.
Now, we are going to carve out the brows to make them sleek and sharp. We take our Bella&Bear Golden Cat concealer brush and some Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer and we outline the brows with the product pulling it outward so we can blend it into our foundation later.
Lets think about our eyes now. Of course we want to begin with some Benefit Stay Dont Stray Primer to lock in our shadows and make them poppin'.
Now we are going to use our Bella&Bear Sand cat brush to work a matte bone shadow all over the lid and up to the brow bone. This will even out the tone on the lid.
Lets pick up our Bella&Bear Bornean Bat Cat brush now and a matte dark green shadow - we are using the Colourpop Just My Luck palette for this look and this shade is 'Act Natural'. We work this into the outer corner of the eye and along the crease of the eye with a windscreen wiper motion.
We are going to use our Bella&Bear Golden Cat Concealer brush and that same concealer again now. We are using it create a dome shape on the lid to give a cut crease look and to give our next shadows a super-strong base.
We take our Bella&Bear Jaguarundy brush now and a grass green shadow - we're using 'Kiss my Hass' - and we're going to press it onto the concealer we just applied.
Lets add some sparkle now. Picking up our Bella&Bear Marbled cat brush and spritz it with some Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. We then dip it into shade 'Big Banks' and press it directly onto the centre of the lid for a halo effect. You can go back in with the Jaguarundy brush and do some blending here if you need to.
Its time to line! We are using our Bella&Bear Serval Angled Liner Brush and some Elf Cream Liner and we are drawing in a wing along the upper lash line. This brush is perfect for creating a precise liner design thanks to the bent design on the head.
We are going to add a metallic flash now! We use some Essence Liquid Ink Metallic liner and apply it just above our black liner for a double wing effect.
Lets think about the lashes now. We first curl them with our famous Bella&Bear Eye and Mighty Curlers for beautiful fan and lift. We lock that curl in with a coat of the TooFaced Better Than Sex mascara.
We want to go one better for this special occasion so we are going to add some falsies. We are using our Bella&Bear Angled tweezers to place a set of the GWA Unicorn falsies as close to the natural lash line as possible.
Its time to get that base in place. Lets start by working on some MUA Banana primer to make our skin flawless and poreless.
We are then going to think about foundation. We want a dewy skin for this look so we are mixing some TooFaced Born this Way foundation with some Bodyshop Drops of Glow luminiser and we are working it over the face using our Bella&Bear Jaguar angled kabuki.
Lets work some magic now and disguise any problem areas. We are using our Bella&Bear Ocelot Concealer brush and some more of the UD Concealer and we are blending it over any dark circles or blemishes we may have on the skin.
As mentioned, we would like a dewy skin for this look but we still need to set our concealer in place to prevent it from creasing and sliding, so we are using our Bella&Bear Leopard Face brush and some Essence All About matte powder. If you have oily skin or prefer a matte finish you can apply light dusting of powder all over the face.
Lets lock that base in place with a spritz of the Revolution Oil control fixing spray.
Its time to finish working on those eyes now. We are taking our Bella&Bear Marbled cat brush again and 'mo bamba' shadow and we are working it along the lower lashline.
We are also using some Charlotte Tilbury Rock&kohl liner in bedroom black on the lower waterline here to intensify the eyes.
Lets add some depth to the skin now, We are taking our Bella&Bear Bobcat brush and some Hoola Bronzer by Benefit and we are dusting it into the hollows of the cheeks, around the hair line and onto the temples.
We are going to add some cute freckles now! We take our Bella&Bear Caracal liner brush and we dip it into the Revolution brow ink. We then use it to create some Faux Freckles over our cheeks and nose. We set these by dusting over them using our Bella&Bear Leopard face brush and some more of the Essence All About Matte powder.
Next, lets get festive! We are using this Shamrock stencil and we are pressing it into the cheeks and around the eye. We fill in the stencil using our Bella&Bear Margay brush and some 'Olive You' shadow. You can add as many or as few as you like.
For a little extra sparkle we us our finger to top the shamrocks with some Waterfall glitter gel by colourpop.
Time to think about the lips! As our eyes are so ... well... eye catching, we want to keep the lips neutral. We are first lining them using some Spice liner by Mac.
We then take our Bella&Bear Rusty Spotted Cat Lip Brush and we paint the lips using some Velvet teddy by Mac.
For our hair we want it fiery and fierce. We start by brushing through using our Bella&Bear Brush on You Detangler to make it sleek and tangle free.
We then create 2 tight braids in the hair and pin them to the back of the head as tightly as possible.
Finally we pull on our Beautiful auburn wig!
We hope you enjoyed this look - and that you have a happy and safe St Patricks Day!
