I think we all have established by now how obsessed I am with the ZOEVA Cocoa Palette, it just has everything that I need for a quick, but pretty eye look. I won't bore you with too much detail as I have written about it in full in this post, if you fancy a read. I tried to create a glowy, flawless base. You know, the thing that all make-up enthusiasts and their friends want to achieve? however, my dry skin seemed to soak up every liquid illuminator that I applied to my skin in record time. Despite this, the Burberry Fresh Glow Liquid* was used first as a primer to provide my skin with a subtle shimmery sheen ready for foundation. The GOSH Foundation Drops* are something that I haven't put down since I got them. They are literally incredible. I haven't been this attached to a foundation since I first discovered NARS Sheer Glow, but please take my word for it, you need to try it. The foundation is ultra-light and formulated with water; providing a silky, youthful glow with medium to full coverage. What I especially love is that it doesn't cling to my dry patches and other make-up applies seamlessly on top, especially cream formulas.
To contour, very lightly, I opted for the Makeup Revolution The One Blush Stick* in Matte Malibu and blended upwards with a stippling brush. For extra glow, I turned to my veracious Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer under my eyes and Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights on my cheekbones, brow bone and down my nose. This is probably my fourth bottle of this, I quite simply adore it.
For Lips, I wanted a slightly orange-toned red, so opted for the Maybelline Color Drama Pencil in Fab Orange, which considering the name, I deem to be more red than orange. These pencils are incredibly easy to apply and provide a matte finish, lasting for a good amount of time before wearing off. I didn't use any blush in this look because I wanting to concentrate on highlight and a porcelain base. Overall, I like how it all comes together and also complements the purple of my hair.
Although more suited to spring/summer, I think this look could transition well into next season, replacing the orangey lip with a berry/plum tone, as well as adding a bit of a feline eyeliner flick. I would also matte down the complexion a bit and use a pomegranate-hued blush as opposed to the extreme highlight. What do you think?
