Barely There

The make up I used for the Gallery's Private Industry viewing, beautifully natural that would work on a everyday, casual, formal, and work basis. I've been rocking this look for the past few weeks now with different variations of shadows from the same palette (explained later) amazingly wearable for all eyes.

Here's how to replicate the look! The exact same products aren't required but I've listed what I used:

Hanskin Magic BB Cream (foundation)
Lightly applied by rubbing between hands and patting on the skin. Using your fingers dab extra on forehead, nasal, cheek, lip area's for extra coverage if required
E.L.F Studio Under Eye Concealer (medium)
Pat a few dots under the eye and dab with ring finger to blend out
E.L.F complexion perfection (finishing powder)
Swirl a powder brush into the powder and dab all over the face from the middle outwards blending as you go
Sleek Face Contour Kit (Light)
(more prominent cheekbones) Using a fluffy brush sweep a line about a third of the way from your ear canal towards the corner of your mouth, use your middle and ring finger to blend
(slimmer sharper noses) Again with the fluffy brush apply a small amount to the sides of the nose up the bridge towards the start of the eyebrows, blend again with middle finger - be sure to blend well on this as too much product will look silly
NARS Blush (Gina)
Swirl you favourite blush brush into this (for those using the same product a little goes a LONG way - be warned) and sweep just above the ear canal towards the nostrils and back and forth blend a little on the apples
E.L.F Studio Mist and Set
Spritz a little onto a flat top kabuki brush and dab all over face to set everything, this will not only take away any over powdering/caking, it will moisturise any dry patches as well as blending out any contour / blush that was overdone

GEO Angel Brown Contacts
UD Naked Palette
Outer 3rd can be filled with Smog/Toasted then blended
Outer V to be defined using either Darkhorse/Hustle
Finish upper lid by patting Virgin/Sin/Sidcar/HalfBaked (different choice gives different look results)
Outer 3rd lower lid run a little Darkhorse/Hustle (doesn't need to be the same as the Outer V)
MAC Gel Liner (Black Track)
Line eyes to preference, for this look I feel the thinner the better, be sure to get between the lashes to make the look fuller and thicker
Koji Curving Eyelash Curler
Clamp lashes at the roots, centre and tips
Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Mascara
Coat Lashes

Revlon Nude Delight
Loreal Glam Shine Everlasting Melon
