Wow, I haven't done a beauty related post in so long! And no, there's no Burberry product in here (I wish though). I love looking at fashion shows and there's one look in particular that has been on my mind since the last Fashion Week: Burberry Spring/Summer 2015 look, the glowy skin with the red lips *sigh* Ever since I saw the makeup look last year ( and especially after I saw the official Burberry tutorial here), all I can think about was 'I can't wait for Spring to arrive and try on this look!' I know it's not Spring yet, but the weather has been so lovely lately that I just had to give this look a shot.
As I mentioned in my January favorites post, I have been in love with the Tarte foundation, it gives amazing coverage but it's light weight and it still looks very natural. For my post jet lag under eye circles, I use my Bare Minerals concealer that I have been using for quite a while now, it works wonders for me. Another key to the look is the glowy skin which is why I sometimes add Well-Rested by Bare Minerals (that I actually got in a set with my concealer) on the high points of my face or just any highlighter that I've got around. After being done with all that, I realize, oh dear, I look very pale and dead, and that my friends, is where Honey Bronzer from The Body Shop that my aunt got me as a Christmas gift saves the day! Most of the time, I won't bother with blushers because I think having a bold red lip and blusher at the same time is a little bit too much. I use Naked2 Basics palette for my brows and eyes. For my eyes, I simply have Cover from the same palette all over the lid, Skimp at the inner corners of my eyes, and Undone on my lash line. And for my brows, I use mix Undone and Primal. My eyelashes are basically nonexistent and they are extremely straight (like a toilet brush) so of course, I need a good amount of mascara on my eye lashes. Last but certainly not least, the star of the show, the red lip, and here I use Revlon Matte Balm in Striking, I love the minty feeling and the matte finish of this lip crayon.
It's so simple and wearable, not something that you see all the time on the runway. I often change the red lip with other colors as well, because red lips are not the most practical when you're going out to eat.
Would you wear this look?
