Bourjois Velvet Rouge Edition

Testing out Bourjois Velvet Rouge Edition I paired the lipstick with dewy skin and matte chocolate smokey eyes. 

I used Velvet Rouge Edition in 07 Nude-ist which is super matte, highly pigmented and long lasting. It does promote a 24 hour stay however I would say 5-6 Hours, which Is still pretty good! As far as matte liquid lipstick goes this has a beautiful soft velvet texture and not as drying as other liquid matte lipsticks. It is also called "Nude-ist" which would suggest a nude tone, however it is very much a bright pink, It did look brighter in some pictures than others.(see below). 

The application brush allows you to glide the product on and create a defined look. It applies evenly and definitely on the generous side when using the applicator. I found by priming my lips and applying with a lip brush, I had more control on the amount of product. I also tried it with a balm on top and wowee it looked beautiful. 

Overall, I love this product, its long lasting, smudge proof, a beautiful colour, doesn't crumble like some other matte lipsticks. It does lie slightly in the name (naughty Bourjois) Nude and 24 hour not so much but for Β£8.99 its a winner in my eyes!

I can't wait to buy and test the other colours in this range... Check them out at boots: http://www.boots.com/en/Bourjois-Rouge-Edition-Velvet-lipstick_1459266/

"La Raffinee"

Testing out Chanel Matte Lipstick in La Raffinee and I have to say I looooove it!

Matte lipstick with rich colour in just one coat (here I have applied clear lipgloss on top).

I find matte lipsticks can really dry out my lips but this glided on and left my lips soft and velvety, it really is so beautiful!! A quality lipstick and a makeup bag staple that can be worn day or night. Worth every penny. (Β£26)

This look is really quick and easy for anyone to achieve. 

Start by applying eyeshadow primer then MAC Plumage Eyeshadow all over the lid blending out at the crease. Also apply eyeshadow below the bottom lashline. 

Using the glitter eyeliner apply in the same routine as the eyeshadow but avoid going over the crease.

Blue/Brown Smokey Eye

A popular look over the wedding season for my clients has been a brown smokey eye. So I thought I would add a twist with blue/brown Pigment. 

Here's how I created the look..

Skin

I prepped my skin with MAC Prep + Prime then applied Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in N53 Leight Beigh. I used Maybeline FIT ME Concealer to conceal around the eyes and on any blemishes. Highlighting with Touche Eclat in number 2 under the eyes, on the brow bone, down the nose. 

Contouring with MAC PRO Conceal and Correct Palette Medium Deep NW43 in the hollow of the cheeks, down either side of the nose and to the temples.  Setting with MAC mineralize skin finish in natural on the T-zone and Ben Nye Banana Powder under the eyes. 

Using Anastasia Beverly contour kit to go over the contour and highlighted areas, I then applied Chanel Blush in Red Rose. 

Eyes

To prep the eyes, I used Urban Decay Primer Potion. I feel by using a primer the eyeshadows appears smoother and higher pigment.

To create the smokey eye looks I used Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette and applied MAC Pigment in Blue/Brown. 

To start I used white chocolate from the chocolate bar to cover the whole lid then milk chocolate to the outer corners along the crease and under the eye blending well followed by semi-sweet in the same routine. I blended salted caramel along the crease to add warmth. 

Dampening an eyeshadow brush I applied MAC Blue/Brown Pigment to the lid avoiding going above the crease. To finish I applied triple fudge to the outer corners.

Finishing with a good coat of Mascara.

Lips

I used MAC Lipliner in Spice and MAC Lipstick High Tea finishing with MAC lip glass on top. 

Eyebrows

I have always used Chanel - Source De Chanel Perfect Brows Palette. It creates a soft natural look without it looking to harsh. I then add Anastasia Beverly Hills Pomade along the bottom of the brows to create a defined shape. To apply the brows I use MAC 208 angled brow brush.
