Baby its cold outside Look
Winter time just looks magical, doesn't it? Miles and miles of snow, people wrapped up warm and twinkling lights everywhere.Todays look is inspired by all of those things and is just perfect for the colder months, switching classic red lips up for a frostier feel!
We're going to start with our eyes for this look. After popping in some lilac lenses for a wide eye effect, we begin by priming the lids with some Stay Dont Stray by Benefit, working it over the lid and up to the brow bone to stop our shadows from creasing and allowing them to pop more.
We follow this by using our Bella&Bear Sand cat brush to work a matte ivory shadow over the lid and right up to the brow bone. We use the MUA Elysium palette for the powder shadows in this look.
Then we are using our Bella&Bear Golden cat brush to work some Maybelline 24hr colour tattoo shadow in 'On and On Bronze' over the lid and up to the crease of the eye.
To set this in place and intensify the colour we go over with a similar colour powder shadow. We're using the same Elysium palette now, pressing a shimmer brown shadow over using our Bella&Bear Jaguarundy brush.
Now, lets line the eyes. Taking our Bella&Bear Caracal brush and some Essence cushion liner, we create a wing along the upper lash line to define the eyes.
For some pretty lashes we start by curling them using our Bella&Bear Eye and Mighty curlers.
After a coat of mascara to lock in that curl, we use our Bella&bear Angled tweezers to place some GWA Unicorn falsies as close to the lash line as possible.
Lets work on our brows now. We are starting by brushing through the hairs using the spoolie end of our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx brow brush.
Then, using the brush end we work some ABH dipbrow pomade through the brows to fill in and define them.
We finish the brows by 'carving them out' - we outline them with some Collection Lasting perfection concealer and then blend that concealer out using our Bella&Bear ocelot concealer brush
We're going with a glowing, smooth base for this look. So, after moisturising and priming with some Gerard Cosmetics BB+ illumination creme, we are going to work some UD Naked skin foundation all over the face using our Bella&Bear Jaguar angled kabuki. We also blend this slightly down the neck to avoid tide lines around the jaw.
Next, to add to that porcelain complexion we are going to conceal. We use our concealer to disguise any problem areas - like dark circles or blemishes, and to bring light to the face. We work some Collection Lasting Perfection concealer onto the underneath of the eyes, the hollows of the cheeks, the forehead, down the centre of the nose and on the chin using our Bella&Bear Ocelot and Golden cat concealer brushes; the Golden cat is perfect for work on smaller areas like the centre of the nose.
Although we want a dewy finish to the skin for this look it is still important to set that concealer to prevent it from creasing and sliding around the face as the day goes by. So, next we pick up our Bella&Bear Tiger brush and we use it to dust some Laura Mercier transparent powder over the areas we just concealed.
To lock that all firmly in place we're going over with a generous spritz of the UD all nighter setting spray
Lets add a little structure to the face with bronzer. Using some Hoola by Benefit on our Bella&Bear Bobcat blush brush, we dust the cheekbones, the temples and the hair line.
We also want to add a flash of colour our highlight, so, we take some of the blue powder from the Revolution Unicorn Heart Highlight and our Bella&Bear Margay cat brush and we dust it along the high-points of the cheeks, the tip of the nose, the inner corners of the eyes and the brow bones.
As for our lips, we want to keep them neutral too, so we are going to paint some Gerard Cosmetics lipstick in Underground onto the lips using our Bella&Bear Rusty Spotted Cat lip brush
To make the look super Winter-y we are popping on our fave silver wig. but first we need to brush through the natural hair using our Bella&Bear Brush on you detangler to make the hair tangle free and smooth.
We then pull all the hair back and secure it tightly to the back of the head using bobbypins before pulling on the wig.
