For my signature look I started with a tinted moisturizer, added secret camoflauge #4 by laura mercier as my concealer and used Maybelline's honey beige powder. I have a new favourite highlight shade I used (Bourjois illuminating touch in Rose Essentiel). I used a bronzer as a contour shade and then mixed Bobbi Brown's Tawny and Dessert Rose blushes. On the eyes I started with Navajo as a base and applied Cement shade on the lid to crease (both bobbi brown). I then used one of the palettes in the 'Naked Eye' collection by Too Faced - I used 'Lap Dance' in the crease and then smudged 'Stiletto' a deep black shade into the eyeliner (I used MAC's Teddy). For the lips, I used Bobbi Brown's Blondie Pink lipliner (which has been discontinued, but MAC's Nice N Spicy is an 'exact' dupe). I then applied Blush lipstick by Bobbi Brown (or you can use Laura Mercier's Brown Sugar glossstick - another Bobbi Brown dupe). I then used my finger to dab on Dessert Rose blush onto the lips!
I've always wanted to embrace that chic, elegant yet natural look - I am so inspired by woman who have this classic, signature look. I've packed up all my 'impulse buys' and have decided to put them to good use in my makeup artistry kit - that way I'm still putting the makeup to good use, but for my own personal look, I've decided to embrace a signature look. I'm giving myself a limit on the makeup I have - I feel I only really need two lipsticks for day, one for evening and one for a more glam evening (which I already know is going to be a red shade). I look forward to sharing the rest of my journey with you and I hope to expand the things I write about on this blog - fashion, tibutes to style icons and anything new and upcoming in the beauty/makeup world - stay tunned to a whole new chapter!!!
