Have I ever told you I love blush? Just kidding, I know I have.

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I thought this blushed makeup look would be perfect for the occasion. This look is more on the natural side (I even skipped mascara) with a radiant base, fluffy brows and blushed eyes, cheeks and lips.

I know wearing blush on your eyes might sound intimidating, but just look how nice it looks! And it’s so easy to achieve. Keep on reading for step by step photos and instructions.

Blushed makeup look tutorial

glowy base - vita liberata beauty blur mixed with foundation

Starting with the base.
For this look I wanted my base to be very radiant and light. I mixed *Vita Liberata’s beauty blur with my foundation, to sheer it out and get an overall glow to my skin. Beauty blur is an awesome product for that.

*Charlotte Tillbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter

After that I neutralized my dark circles with *NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Custard.
To brighten the under eye area, I added a dab of *BeautyAct Concealer, shade 01C, on top of that.

I wanted my brows be as lifted as possible for this look. I think they looked nice and fresh with the look. I used a strong hold hair gel and brushed them upwards. If you’re looking for a brow gel that does that, I’ve heard *Benefit’s Brow Setter offers great hold (it’s on my buy-list).  After that I used a blonde brow powder to fill them in a bit (Clarins Brow Duo in Tawny Blonde).

Then I added blush. I recommend using a cream blush, that you can just blend with your fingers.
I applied blush on top of my cheeks and all the way to my lids. I used my favorite cream blush, Kjaer Weis Above and Beyond cream blush. Now this is optional, but I applied *Vita Liberata’s highlighter in Rose under that blush, to get a bit more pink pearly sheen to it. It wouldn’t have been quite that glowy without the highlighter under it, though the cream blush itself has some sheen to it.

How to pick the right blush color to make this look work for you?
I used a slightly warm, coral blush shade to go with my neutral yellow undertone. If you have pinkish cool undertones, I would recommend choosing a cool shade.

Finally, I added GOSH Romance lipstick to finish off the look. I also smudged the edges of the lipstick a bit with my finger to get a softer look. I’ve been doing this a lot lately, smokey and blended are not just for the eyes.

Similar lipstick:
*YSL Satin Lipstick, Nu Fatal

Sometimes as a beauty blogger I get this pressure of coming up with all these complex looks. But in reality, simplicity is beautiful. And wearable. I actually felt very beautiful in this look and couldn’t believe I hadn’t tried it before. Needless to say, I will wear this more often from now on. It even works nicely with a face mask, bringing the attention to the eyes.

Would you try this look?

 

Halloween makeup idea: ICE QUEEN

I created this ice queen Halloween look for my friend back in 2017. It’s one of my favorite creative looks, but I haven’t shared it here ever. It’s time to fix that mistake! You can recreate this look to suit your makeup skill level – so even if you were a beginner, I think you can totally pull it off. The important things are to use cool blue tones throughout the makeup, add some glitter and add your extra accessories such as blue contact lenses or false lashes.

I swear – it’s one of those makeup looks, that looks a bit more complex than it is. But that still doesn’t mean it doesn’t take time to do it. Adding details such as rhinestones, hand drawn snowflakes or false lashes is fine work that takes a bit of patience.

ICE QUEEN MAKEUP HOW TO

BASE:
First step is to add foundation to get a nice even base. I recommend using something that has a lot of coverage. For example *Estee Lauder’s Double Wear would be perfect. After that, contour and sculpt your face using a blue color. Add blue also on your neck. Then add icy highlight.

FACE DETAILS

Snowflakes
Draw on some snowflakes around the face and on the cheeks. Snowflakes are basically just straight lines that cross each other (google snowflake and learn from example). Don’t forget the neck!

Glitter
Add a touch of fine glitter on the highest points of the face as a highlight – and on the brows. I used fine, almost white glitter.

EYES
Do your eyebrows with blue eyeshadow or pencil.
As for the eyeshadow – the important thing is to use blue cool colors. If eyeshadow is not your strong suit, one color all over the lid will do. But you can also learn! I have lots of eyeshadow tutorials on my blog – you can check them out and just switch out the colors. I contoured the eyes with darker blues and left the lid quite light.
To finish off the eye look, add customized false lashes and glue on rhinestones with lash glue.

LIPS
Finally, add blue lipstick. If that is too much, you could also try to use a cool nude shade. That’s it!
