St. Patricks Day is here! Its time to get glammed up and celebrate with friends and family! Todays look is filled festive greens, a bit of bronze and a classic nude lip - just perfect for your festivities!
Lets start with the brows here. We're using the spoolie end of our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx Brow Brush to work though the hairs, brushing them into a neat shape.
To follow, we use the brush end and some ABH Dipbrow pomade, working the product through the brows to fill in sparse areas and to give a defined shape.
Next, lets 'carve out' the brows to make them super sharp. Using our Bella&Bear Golden Cat concealer brush and some Essence Camouflage concealer we outline the brows and blend the product upward and outward.
Now, moving onto the eyes. Lets prime them first with some Benefit Stay Dont Stray to lock in our shadows and make them really pop. We work this over the lid using our ring finger.
Now, we're going to even out the tone of the lid with a base shadow. Taking our Bella&Bear Sand Cat brush and a matte ivory shadow we fill in the lid and work up to that brow bone.
Lets add in a defined crease. We are now taking a matte taupe shadow on our Bella&Bear Jaguarundy cat brush and we begin to work it along the top of the crease in a windscreen wiper motion and upward for a soft line.
Now, using our Bella&Bear Bornean Bay cat brush and a matte chocolate brown shadow we fill in the outer corner, working the shadow slightly inward on the lid
We're spritzing that Golden Cat brush now with some H&M Daily Brush Cleanser to clean it off, then we use it to press a bronze cream shadow onto the lid. We love the ELF smudge pot in Crusin' chic for this.
Its lash time! Emma is wearing eyelash extensions but if you're working from natural lashes then first, we would curl our natural lashes using our Bella&Bear Eye and Mighty lash curler for lift and a fanned out effect. We would then lock that curl in with a coat of Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara.
For a more dramatic finish, you could add on a pair of falsies. We always use our Bella&Bear Angled tweezers to place falsies as close to the natural lash line as possible. We recommend Ardell Demi Wispies for this look.
Its time to work on that radiant skin. We start with a primer, this will minimise the appearance of pores for a more flawless look, and will give our base makeup something to grip onto, to prevent sliding and creasing. We love the Bodyshop Instablur primer.
Now, taking our Bella&Bear Jaguar angled kabuki we are applying a mix of the Estee Lauder Double wear foundation and Gerard Cosmetics BB+ Illumination creme onto the face and lightly down the neck. The addition of the illumination creme will give our skin a beautiful lit-from-within glow!
We want to cover any problem areas next. Taking some of the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer and our Bella&Bear Ocelot concealer brush we begin to disguise any areas of concern such as dark circles or blemishes.
Finally, lets set that concealer to lock it in place and prevent it from creasing. We use our Bella&Bear Leopard Face brush to press some Laura Mercier translucent setting powder ontop of our concealer only. If you prefer a matte finish to the skin then go ahead and use your Bella&Bear Tiger brush to dust powder over the whole face.
Let's add a little colour to the face. We're starting with a healthy glow of bronze! Taking our Bella&Bear Tiger brush and some Benefit Hoola Bronzer we are dusting it over the hollows of the cheeks, the temples and the hairline.
We're also going to finish off those eyes with a festive green now. We're using our Bella&Bear Margay cat brush to smudge some Emerald green shadow along the lower lash line - we're using the Revolution Mermaids Vs Unicorns palette here. We also apply a coat of mascara to the bottom lashes here.
To finish the look we're going to add in a nude lip, letting our eyes do the talking. We're first lining the lips with some Charlotte Tilbury in 'Iconic Nude', then using our Bella&Bear Rusty Spotted Cat Lip brush to paint them with some 'Velvet Teddy' lipstick by MAC.
And lastly, lets highlight. We're dusting some TooFaced Ray of Light Highlighter (or any other champagne tone highlight) over the high points of the face using our Bella&Bear Cheetah Duo Fiber powder brush.
As for our hair, we're going auburn! We starting by brushing through our locks using our Bella&Bear Brush on you detangler to make it sleek and smooth.
Then, we brush our hair back into a low, tight bun, sticking down any flyaways with some hairspray.
Finally, we pull on our fave auburn wig - don't you think it just compliments the eye colours perfectly?!
