5 days of makeup: glitter, glow & pop of color

It’s the last day of my 5 days of makeup challenge! I have to say, it’s been both challenging and fun.

This final look is all about the glitter lids and orange-red lips. And a bit about the skin as well. You might have noticed a slight glowy skin trend going on with me at the moment and this look is no exception.

The beautyblender Re-Dew Set & Refresh Spray

I got some more new products (in pr) and here I just had to try the beautyblender’s new Re-dew Set & Refresh Spray*. The Re-Dew Setting Spray contains hydrolized silk, hyaluronic acid as well as some light oils and even probiotics. It can be used as a setting spray, before foundation, spritzed onto a sponge or just as a refresher during the day.

It’s only been my first time trying it so I’m giving you my first impressions. First of all, I love the packaging. I also like how fine the mist is – it’s easy to spray on. I can’t wait to try it on top of my foundation and powder, since it should make them melt together nicely. But for my first time using it, I wanted to see how it works with a foundation that is quite full-coverage and semi matte, since the spray has some hydrating properties. The foundation I used was one of my favorite foundations, Clarins’ Everlasting Foundation+. I sprayed my damp beautyblender with the mist and blended my foundation with that in sections. My skin can get a bit dehydrated and right now that foundation is a bit too matte for my liking. But paired with this mist – it was perfect! It gave the foundation and my skin a nice hydration boost – with some glow.

I also got the original beautyblender in a new color: electric violet swirl*.

5 days of makeup challenge

I used NYX Glitter Goals* liquid glitter eyeshadow in my first look of this week so it’s only suitable to end this week with the same product. Here I applied it straight onto my lid to, whereas in my first look I just applied a touch of it. Again, as I said, I love how easy these glitters are to work with. No mess whatsoever, since they are in liquid form.

Makeup By Me – Classic Smokey Eye

 

I love a classic smokey eye.

A true smokey eye is really almost black and it goes on to the whole lid as well as on the lower lashline. This kind of makeup can look a bit harsh on blue eyes but for brown eyes it looks almost like it was always there. Right? If I had my model’s eyes I’d probably do this makeup every day!  I softened the black/brown shade with a warm orange that brings warmth to the look and also acts as a transition color. Since the eye shadow is mostly matte I paired it with a glossy nude lip.

Isn’t she gorgeous? How do you do a smokey eye?

I did this look at the end of the summer so I couldn’t remember all the products – sorry!
