Life can often be hectic leaving us constantly on the go but it’s important to take a step back and fit some me time into your weekly schedule.
Me time can consist of anything from curling up with the latest blockbuster to sitting in a bubble bath till your skin shrivels up like a prune. With most of my life spent working I like to spend my me time giving myself a makeover, combining the latest makeup looks and products on the market. Without makeup my skin looks quite plain so for today’s makeover I wanted to come up with a look that really embraces colour and glamour.
For the Collection Bias shop I visited Boots, a High-street favourite who stock a lot of my favourite High-street makeup brands. With Maybelline launching so many fantastic products recently I thought they’d be fantastic to create a new look with products I’ve never used before. With my focus on colour I picked up a gorgeous sheeny pink nail varnish, the brand new Big Eyes mascara with top and bottom lash brushes, the gorgeous 24H SuperStay Lipgloss in Glowing Garnet and most importantly the new Big Eyes 4 colour eye palette.
First I covered the bases with Maybelline’s brand new SuperStay better skin foundaiton in Light Beige gently blending it in so my skin was warmed up and any blemishes were covered. The new SuperStay better skin concealer worked well alongside the foundation, eliminating any darkness that the base didn’t cover. To make my eyes stand out I used the Maybelline Master Drama Kohl Liner, a easy to use crayon that gave my eyes a glamourous cat eye flick. To make this different from my typical work look I ran the liner along my lower lashes as well so my eyes were framed.
With so many good reviews on the new Big Eyes mascara I can’t tell you how excited I was to use it. The upper lash brush has a special design that helps to push up lashes with its uniquely shaped brush. The lower lash brush is absoloutely tiny and perfect for coating even the tiniest of lashes. My lashes looked long and curvy and really accentuated the eyeliner. The Big Eyes palette has four colours that work well together and add a really feminine, sparkly look to my eyes. I love how well the shades of purples work with the gold bouncing off each other. With my face done it was time to give my lips a little va va voom to really complete the look. The 24H SuperStay Lipgloss works like a lipstick giving intense colour that lasts for hours. Last but not least a makeover is not complete without a complete set of nails. Maybelline Color Show in Pink Slip works well in conjunction to the other products I used and helps to seal that Girly glamour makeover look.
With a makeover you really want to create a look that is different to your normal style. As I often have my hair straight I decided to create some waves, these worked really well along the new look showing just how glamorous you can be with a little bit of effort.
The makeover was great fun and gave me a good bit of time to myself focusing on stuff I want to do rather then stuff I have to do. Depending on the brands you buy you don’t have to spend a lot on your makeover and can even focus on just jazzing up your nails with a new colour or some nail art.
You can find these fantastic products at Boots
