Did you see this beauty on the British Vogue Cover this month? There is nothing that beats such a classic beauty embellished with minimal makeup and simplicity. I was seriously crushing on this look the first time I saw it, it really is right up my alley.
So as my calling for makeup took over, I got my brushes out and did myself a little tutorial.
The key to getting this look is skin-like foundation and rosy cheeks. The eyeliner and brows are minimal in a flattering sense. To add another point, this makeup would suit any skin-tone as well as eye-shape/face-shape. Even those who find reasons not to do makeup will find themselves utterly awed at the results! Pinky swear!
Let’s get into this, shall we?
Firstly, moisturise your skin with an emollient but matte moisturise. Avoid glossy products as the look is very glowy not illuminating (And yes both are different, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!). I started with my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation in the colour 22 Beige Rose, a purchase I’ve been loving recently. Using the Maybelline Fit Me concealer in the colour 15 (that is light for my skin but works great to add some light). I loosely set this with my holy-grail Laura Mercier Translucent Powder.
For the eyes, I used the colour Nooner from Naked 3 Palette all over the lid. With my Ellis Faas eyeliner, I lightly lighted my top lids (not adding a flick). I used the shade Faint and Crave from the Naked Basic Palette and brushed it lightly on my brows (They should stand out, but balance out the look). One coat of Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara finished the look off.
Now for the best part, the cheeks! I used my Estee Lauder Cheek Rush in Pink Patent + a light dusting of Nars Orgasm finishing it off. The key to the cheeks is taking the blush a tad bit over the cheekbones as well and not just the apples. Nigella is a curvy woman and this blush is flattering for rounder faces.
The lips were dabbed with in Chanel Rouge Allure in Romance.
