I’m back in the blogging game! You have no idea what I’ve been through to get online on my laptop. Let me spare you Loves the details but it involves a sacrifice of a dead body, a diamond and a walk to Timbuktu!
For this make-up look I used the strobing technique. For the ones who don’t know what it is, it’s basically the same as contouring but without accentuating the highlights with a dark foundation. You only use an illuminating highlighter for the contour. Strobing make-up gives you a dewy glowy look, perfect for summer!
Most Loves use foundation as a base. I did not use foundation because it is so hot in Morocco. No need for it, I will look as a melting vanilla cookie. Instead I used Etos Mattifying Primer #501. After the primer I used Essence Stay All Day 16H Long Lasting Concealer in the colour #10 Natural Beige. I applied upside down triangles under my eyes for a natural look. For my eyes I used W7 Naked Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. In particularly the two colours on the left. I applied it as a smokey eye. In details: the first colour on the left I applied it on my waterline and the colour next to it on my eyelid. I did not use mascara.
To highlight my cheekbones, my nose and my cupid arrows (the little hills of your upper lip) I used Maybelline New York Blush #77 Rose. No need to be careful with the strobing technique. So I applied a lot for a summer highlight!
During summer I have sometimes dry lips so I used New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm #351 Caramel Apple to still have the benefits of a balm and the colour of a lip gloss/stick.
What do you think about this look?
