Hi everyone, I’m back for my second blog this week. Today the focus is taking some inspiration from the lip trend at the moment and using some tips and tricks to emulate the Kylie Jenner lip look.
I love it when my base looks flawless, so the bareMinerals Bare Skin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation (in the shade Bare Beige) is one of my favourites at the moment. It applies beautifully and manages to even out my skin without feeling heavy.
For the eyes we used something quite neutral, to complement the final lip look. We used the bareMinerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer all over the lid which acts as a base and helps to allow any colour to last longer. We then applied the lightest shade from the bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadows 4.0 Quad in The Comfort Zone.
For concealer we used the brilliant Shiseido Sheer Eye Zone Corrector highlighting pen in a paler shade than my skin tone to add some light to under the eyes and on the top of the cheekbones. If you apply concealer in a triangle shape, it provides the best coverage. Kylie Jenner can often wear a lot of contouring, but by using this highlighter it’s an easier way to sculpt the face without being too strong.
The Guerlain Terrazotta Bronzing Powder is the perfect shade to add some shadow to my skin tone, and it manages to make my cheek bones look a lot more prominent.
The focal point of this look is the lips – we used a lip liner and a lipstick to fake fuller lips. The Guerlain Lip Liner in Bois Des Indes has the loveliest texture and doesn’t drag on the lips. With a lip liner, it’s easier to overdraw the lips slightly which can help to make the lips look bigger. Another tip for lips is to use a small bit of the same brightening concealer on the cupid’s bow to make your lips look more voluptuous.
We then filled the lips in using the Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipstick in Air Kiss, which is the perfect shade for recreating the popular 90s lipstick trend. The lipstick really steals the show in this look.
