All the products I've used are cruelty free, with the exception of Collection products. Collection have an unclear cruelty free policy, and, whilst I consider them to be a cruelty free brand unless they are proven of animal testing, I know some people are dubious about their cruelty free stance so choose to avoid them.
Look 1 - English Rose - Everyday
I love how simple and plain this make-up look is. It's all about highlighting the cheeks, lips and lashes. The very lovely lady who served me in Topshop actually wrote down what lipstick I was wearing when I was shopping in this make-up!
|This is the elf. Lip Gloss Stick in Sangria Starters.|
|This blush is brighter than I normally wear, but it's perfect for this rose look.|
It's elf Cream Blush in Seductress.
I apply it with a brush as I find it gives a subtler wash of colour.
|I use two mascara's for this look. I apply Better Than Sex on my top lashes, then cover with a coat of the elf Waterproof mascara. I use the elf mascara on my bottom lashes too.|
|This combination creates a really natural finish. I apply the B. Moisture Gel first, then I massage in Lush Colour Supplement whilst the moisturiser is soaking in.|
|I use the fourth colour in (Chocolate Mink) all over my lids. This is the Collection Nude palette.|
Look 2 - Vamp - Evening
|I paired up these two lip-liners in order to create the vampy lip.|
Bottom: elf Long Wear Lip Liner in Bitter.
Top: Barry M Lip Liner in 11 (Wine).
|This is with Bitter just on it's own. It was brighter than I expected it to be, but with the lipstick on it looks lovely.|
It also works really well with Sangria Starters over it.
|I then shade in the corners and run faintly around the edges with Wine.|
|I top the whole lip with M&S Matte Mulberry. The moisturising element of this lipstick blends the lip balms together.|
|Using the same Collection palette I take the shade darker (Brown Sugar - second from right).|
|I use the darkest contour shade in the Barry M Chisel Cheeks palette to deepen the crease of my eye - taking the colour up onto my brow bone and far towards my nose.|
|I also lined my eyes with this elf Liquid Liner. However it also works well without the extra line!|
|These are all the products I used - with the exception of the eyeliner and the blusher.|
I used the same cream blush as before.
