What I used for this look:
Makeup Revolution Ultra Flawless 2 Eyeshadow Pallet
Makeup Revolution Sculpt and Contour Kit
Maybelline Master Ink Liquid Eyeliner
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream – Athens
L’Oreal Infallible 24hr Stay Foundation
Kylie Lip Kit Metallic – Heir
L’Oreal Infallible Setting Spray
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Lets Get Started:

I firstly primed my face with Nivea moisturiser and started with my base makeup. I applied a layer of my Infallible 24hr Stay foundation and left that to sit whilst I applied my eye makeup. Tip: applying eye-shadow before concealer allows you to wipe away any dropped eye-shadow from underneath your eye!
I firstly set my whole eye with the lightest colour in my eyeshadow pallet and moved onto the crease. I took three matte shades of brown, going from light to dark to define my crease and create a transition colour. I ensured the outer corner of my eyes had the darkest shade as this helps almost “create a new crease” for my hooded eyes, allowing me to apply more product to the other sections! Once I had blended all of my shades together I moved onto the pop of pink. Taking time blending in your crease is crucial as this can really make or break your whole look, so spend time allowing all the colours to merge together nicely. I primed my eye with some concealer (who needs an eyeshadow primer?!) and applied the top right salmony pink colour to my eyelid. I then applied the pink-shimmer over the top of it, the concealer helped the shimmer shadows to appear more pigmented and stay on my eye lid longer. I then took a white-shimmer and applied it to the inner corner of my eyes, this opens up my eyes and make them appear larger. I then blended the whole of the eye together and applied more transition colours to the crease so everything blended together well.

Once I was certain my upper eyelid was done I applied a thin stroke of eyeliner on my lash-line and moved onto the rest of my base. Using my holy grail concealer the Collection Lasting Perfection I covered my dark circles and set with a loose powder. Whilst “baking” the powder under my eyes I filled in my brows and contoured with my Makeup Revolution Sculpt and Contour Kit. I packed on the highlighter on my cheek bones, the bridge of my nose and my cupids bow for an extra shimmery look! I then set everything with my Infallible Fixing Mist Setting Spray, which btw is a product hand-crafted by angels and sent from heaven.
Using a light brown and the salmon shade I applied a small amount underneath my eye and finished the eye-makeup off with some mascara on both the upper and lower lashes. Lastly I moved onto lips, after moisturising and exfoliating my lips (essential when wearing matte lipstick) I applied my faaaaaave Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Athens then over the top I used Kylie Jenners Metallic Lip Kit in the colour Heir. This is a gorgeous salmon toned pink with golden shimmers, which was perfect to match the eyeshadow.
