Highlight, blue waterline, simple smokey eye and neutral lips for a dinner in Athens in Greece...
These past few weeks of summer have been so busy!
Here's a quick update since this post; I got a medal for my Speech and Drama exam (!!), I had a lot of fun during my french course, and I am just back from my trip to Greece with my parents and sister.
We spent seven nights on the beautiful Mykonos island, then another three in hot Athens. This makeup look is from one of those evenings in Athens city. I didn't wear makeup during the day at all throughout the whole trip (constant sun, heat, pool, beach ≠ any cosmetics whatsoever). Since I brought an extensive amount of products with me, I had to make the most of them every night for our meals out. This was the generic look I sported on those Grecian evenings, and I thought I would share with you what products I used to create this look!
To prime my face, I applied my Smashbox Photo Finish primer, and then I put my Kiko Eye Primer on my eyelids. I buffed my Mac Face and Body Foundation into my skin, and applied my Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer under my eyes and on my blemishes. Usually, I use my face powder to mattify and set my makeup, but I'm into the dewy skin look right now, so I gave the powder a skip. I left my brow products at home annoyingly, but it was all good as my sister lent me her Browzings set from Benefit, which I really like. When I've used up my brow pencil and mascara I may check out Benefit's updated eyebrow products and give them a go!
At night, I loved using shimmery greys and whites for my eyes. This Kiko Colour Fever Eye Shadow Quad in Grey Night Blue that Sarah got for me (thanks Sarah ;D) is a dream - each shade is so pigmented and the quad just looks so pretty! I applied the white colour to my lids, then blended the grey shade into the crease. For a pop of colour, I drew my Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Electric (not pictured) onto my waterline. I lined my eyes with my Crown Ultra Skinny Eye Marker and put on my trusty Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.
From Evelyn and Lauren for my birthday I got some Tanya Burr products, including this adorable Peachy Glow Cheek Palette, and I've been using the 'Champagne Shimmer' highlight like crazy. Under the highlight I lightly brushed on my Clarins blush in Soft Peach. To finish, I slapped on some Flormar lipstick in Cinnamon Tea.
I'll be letting you all know about my recent trip to Greece soon; stay tuned!
