I had one of my biggest blogger 'pinch me' moments this week when I opened a copy of GRAZIA magazine to find my face taking up half a page in the 'Beauty Hunter' section! The photo was from London Fashion Week when my minimal girly make up got snapped at Somerset House, but I never imagined it'd end up in one of my favourite weeklies! So seeing as GRAZIA branded my 'glowing barely-there' beauty look as one of 'Spring's hottest trends' I thought that I'd show you how I achieved it...
I started the fresh Spring look with a base of my beloved Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix in '52' which provides a gorgeous dewy finish as well as flawless coverage with a sunkissed yellow toned shade. I then added a pop of peachy colour with the Bourjois Cream Blush in 'Healthy Glow' and a champagne sheen with Benefit Watt's Up! because this is the ultimate glowy healthy cheek combo. As this look is more about the base I kept the eyes very minimal, just adding a bit of definition with a flick of Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Liner and a few coats of my holy grail Bourjois Volume Clubbing Ultra Black Mascara, making sure to also define my brows nice and naturally with the brand new 'brow wow in a bottle', Benefit Gimme Brow. The finishing touch came in the form of my favourite nude lipstick of all time, MAC 'Shy Girl', which is the prettiest peachy pink that gives you a bit of shine with it's cremesheen finish and also makes your lips smell of vanilla. Always a plus.
One person very excited by this GRAZIA appearence was mama gunn who went out and purchased multiple copies immediately! I had a really lovely weekend with her actually as she came to stay and we did lots of shopping and gossiping before going for a roast with my dad on Sunday. I had lots of fun last night too hosting a Bene-style pancake party at my flat to create content for this Benefit blog post and tonight I think I'll be doing/eating much of the same so have a very happy pancake eve!
