An Easy Statement Makeup Look

| An Easy Statement Makeup Look! |

You all know by now that my favourite type of makeup looks are quick and easy ones. And seeing as it's the weekend I thought I'd share one of my favourite quick and easy statement makeup looks that's perfect for the weekend! 

1) The Base:
My hormonal acne usually flares up when my anxiety is bad and I'm currently suffering from the worst acne I've ever had *insert crying emoji* Normally I wear light to medium bases regardless of whether I have a breakout or not but for a look like this I prefer to wear a fuller coverage base. I opted for the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation as it feels lightweight on the skin but I can build up the coverage and it's one of the best foundations in my collection for smoothing over any texture from my acne.

2) The Complexion:
I always wear subtle bronzers and blushers because I think the 'barely-there' look suits me. I applied the Luminous Bronze Light Bronzer from the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 3 Palette. This adds a subtle luminous bronzey glow to the skin and it's a great shade for fair skin.

Another complexion favourite that I used in this makeup routine was the Nars Luster Blush. The peachy apricot shade adds a subtle wash of colour and radiance to the cheeks.

My highlighter of choice was the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand and this has become my favourite highlighter in recent months. The product melts into the skin, providing a luminous dewy glow that looks natural and makes my complexion look healthy.

3) The Eyes:
For my statement eyeshadow looks, I usually opt for sparkly and shimmery offerings and for this look I was inspired by one of Estée Lalonde's recent videos where Katie Jane Hughes did her makeup. In the video, she used a bronze cream eyeshadow all over the lid and applied a silver glittery shadow on the centre of the lid. To create my version of the look, I applied the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On And On Bronze all over the lid, followed by the Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Diamond Dust on the centre of the lids. And lastly, I used a little bit of Mac Cork eyeshadow in the outer corners because I felt that the Maybelline eyeshadow needed a matte shadow to help blend it out a bit better. 

4) The Lips:
The easiest way to add a statement to any makeup look is by adding a bright, colourful lipstick shade and I opted for a new favourite, Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick in Hexagram*. The rich red hue complements the silver glitter and whilst the formula of the lipstick is matte, it still feels comfortable on the lips, it applies smoothly, without tugging the lips and it doesn't transfer as much as some of my other coloured lipsticks.


What are your favourite products for creating a quick and easy statement makeup look?
