Look of the Month: February

Hello everyone and welcome to my first 'look of the month'. I play around with my daily makeup quite a lot so I'll often stumble across a look I really like and I'll repeat it a few times before getting bored and trying something else. This months most regular look has been a lightly smudged eyeliner with the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Nude-ist which is without a doubt my most worn lipstick at the moment, it's so easy to throw on and goes with so many different looks. I started with Nars Sheer Glow in Gobi (not a good shade for me but wharevs) swiftly followed by the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla which has been a god send with my dry skin this month. Eyebrows are the usual Soap & Glory Archery 2 in 1 Pencil and Brush. I primed my eyes with the Mac Paint Pot in Soft Ochre and then put W.O.S from the Naked Basics Palette all over the lid to make it look clean and fresh. I then put the tiniest bit of Naked 2 and Faint through the crease and the outer corners to give a bit of definition but I wanted most of the focus to be on the eyeliner which I did using the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner (somehow not dried out even though I got it in August 2014). I then used the shade Crave from Naked Basics over the liner and just above to make it more smudged and less perfect. I've also taken to putting a bit of eyeshadow on the inner corners to make the eyes more feline looking. I finished the eyes by adding a tonne of Maybelline's Lash Sensational mascara which I really like. My cheeks were the usual routine of the Illasmasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow followed by a touch of Nars Laguna then another new product from the drugstore, the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Seductive Pink. My favourite way to use this is to have it quite high up on my cheekbones rather than on the apple of my cheeks. My favourite thing about this look is that the eyes are so neutral you can wear any lipstick and it won't look over the top. However I really love the clean eyes/ pink lip combo. I think it's really fresh and pretty. Sorry the photo doesn't really show much of the makeup but it's apparently impossible to take a decent photo of my face. Oh well. 
Thanks for stopping by! Lots of love,
