Make-Up Look Featuring MAC, SLEEK & Real Techniques!

Fresh Spring Make-Up

Hi guys! I'm Lizzie from 'What Lizzie Thinks' and I'm doing a guest post for Emma, which I am really grateful for. I decided to show you all my 'Spring Make-Up Look' and give you a mini-tutorial on how to achieve it - it's my first 'tutorial' ever so I really hope it's okay and you all like it! If any of you do happen to take inspiration from it or try it out yourselves, make sure you tweet me a picture or tag me on Instagram, all my links will be at the end! Anyway, let's get started!

Spring Make-Up Look MAC, SLEEK & Real Techniques!

These are all of the products/brushes I use - it looks like a lot when you put it all out and take a picture but compared to some looks, I don't think this is that much! They're all high-street products apart from the MAC lipstick which was a present; I'm a poor student who can't afford high-end products, I'm afraid!

After my normal cleansing routine, I prime my face using Rimmel's 'Stay Matte' primer which I think is going to be my holy grail this season because my skin tends to get quite oily and shiny and this is so good for preventing that! I did a full review of it over on my blog too. I then apply Collection's 'Lasting Perfection' concealer in shade 1/fair under my eyes and on any blemishes/redness and blend it in using a Real Techniques 'Expert Face Brush'. I really love this concealer, as does everyone in the blogging/YouTube world! Next up is Maybelline's 'Dream Fresh' BB Cream in the light shade which I just apply using my fingers, I don't know why but it just seems to blend much easier and gives a nicer finish on my skin as opposed to using a brush! Lastly, I add a touch of Rimmel's 'Stay Matte' powder which isn't always necessary but during the warmer months I add a bit to my T-Zone using a Real Techniques 'Powder Brush'.

Next, I move on to the eyes. If I was feeling lazy or not really doing anything special 
during the day, I wouldn't bother with my eyebrows because they look fine not filled in but for the purpose of this, I've done it properly! I comb through my eyebrows with a spoolie brush and then fill them in with an angled brush using the MUA 'Matte' eye palette in the 'Penny' shade - I don't add any extra shape or anything, I literally just fill in the natural shape for a bit of extra definition. For the actual eyes, I use Rimmel's 'Exaggerate Undercover' eye primer and blend with my fingers before using the 'Gift Basket' shade from Sleek's 'Oh So Special' palette with the rounded brush from this set. I really like this palette, it's so pigmented and has a good mixture of light and dark, shimmery and matte shades. I then blend it all over my lid a bit more with the Real Techniques 'Deluxe Crease Brush' and voila! Sometimes, I use a bronzer as a base first too. Finally, I use Maybelline's 'The Falsies' mascara in black which is just a really brilliant mascara and makes me look wide awake, even if I'm not feeling it!

For the finishing touches, I apply the Bourjois 'Delice de Poudre' bronzer in shade 51/medium to my temple, jawline and nose to add a bit of a glow - I haven't mastered the art of contouring yet! Then I use the 'Icing Sugar' blush from Sleek's 'Pink Lemonade' blush trio palette which is such a gorgeous palette. I've actually not had this long but I know it's going to be a staple over the spring and summer! Finally, I add my MAC lipstick in 'Impassioned' which is a lovely, bright pink and is one of my favourite lipsticks! If I wanted a bit of a toned down lip, I'd probably use the Revlon lip butter in 'Sweet Tart'.
