I get extremely excited whenever my friends ask me to do their makeup. This time, my friend requested a simple yet glamorous look with lady danger by MAC. You can try this look during any season, its quite the versatile look 🙂
Many of you have asked which products I used to create this look so I made a list and added a brief summary of each below!
Makeup Up For Ever HD Foundation
This foundation is amazing if you’re going to be taking selfies all night. I used a damp beauty blender and evenly applied this foundation. For a simple look, I did not apply too much foundation since my friend wanted a not so heavy kind of look.
Radiant Creamy Concealer by NARS
For the concealer, I used this one by NARS. I absolutely love NARS cosmetics since you get what you pay for. This creamy concealer goes a long way. I love that you only need a little bit, dab it with a damp beauty blender and you’ll be golden! I applied this just above the cheek bones, bridge of the nose, between the eyebrows, and on any red areas.
Cover FX Pressed Mineral Foundation
Since my friend was going out, she needed some extra coverage but also natural looking coverage. The best product in mind was the Cover FX pressed Mineral Foundation. I love this powder because it also sets your foundation for you and does not look overdone. I evenly applied this powder after both the foundation and concealer had a chance to sit on her skin for a few minutes. I used a blush brush to apply this product because it does not pick up too much product all at once.
Maybelline Facestudio Master Contour V-Shape Stick
Contouring is a must if you want to add some definition to your face. I love this contour stick because its all in one and it’s incredibly easy to use. I applied the darker side under the hair line, on the nose to create a slimming look, and on the cheekbones. I always make sure to blend this product very well or else there will be visible lines and that is not a flattering look.
Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Pomade
I have an obsession with this product. It creates a natural look for your eyebrows. I used a thin angled brush to fill in any sparse areas. I also love this product because it lasts all day long even when you sweat.
Kat Von D Ink Liner
To create a flawless winged liner, I used the Ink Liner by Kat Von D. This is the ultimate liner of all liners out there. Unfortunately, this liner ran out as I was doing my friend’s makeup but I got it to finish the job by dampening the tip of the pen with a tiny amount of water and I shook that pen until my wrist started to hurt. Love this liner because it lasts and lasts! It won’t go anywhere if that’s your concern! I also love how easy it is to draw a wing using this pen. The finishing look is flawless and has a slight shine to it. I created a simple winged liner, she did not want a dramatic winged look for that occasion.
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
For this look, I only used two eyeshadow colours. The first one was nooner, and I applied this in the crease of the eyes and blended with a medium eyeshadow brush. The key is to apply a small amount of product to the crease and blend, blend and blend! The other colour that I used was trick, I applied this to the lower lash line and the inner corners of her eyes. This is such a beautiful compilation of shimmery and matte eyeshadows. Love it!
Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara
No need to curl your lashes, this mascara already does it for you. This mascara creates a sexy and wide eyed look that is perfect for a night out! I applied two coats of this mascara on the top and lower lashes.
Lancome Bronzer: STAR
I used this bronzer to add some lift and colour to my friend’s face. I love this bronzer because it doesn’t just sit on the face, it brings it to life. I applied this bronzer on the forehead, cheekbones to create that simple sun kissed glow.
Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder
As a highlight, I chose this one, and it is by far the best highlighter on the market. You must try this and you’ll see for yourself. I love the texture, and I love that it adds that needed glow to the skin. I applied this lights just on the apple of the cheeks.
Lady Danger by MAC Cosmetics
To finish the look off, I used this beautiful red lipstick by MAC. Since my friend has full lips, I skipped the liner and simply applied the lipstick by itself. This is a creamy but matte finish. I absolutely adore this lipstick since it can take a simple/natural makeup look to a classic/glam makeup look in just seconds!
