Earlier this week the August issue of Company Magazine hit the shelves and you might've spotted my face on one of the pages! I was asked to contribute a coral cheek look for The Fashion Five feature. Lily and Olivia covered coral lips & eyes respectively. It was such a shock to be asked & I'm so grateful for the opportunity. Its pretty damn cool to be able to flick open a magazine in Sainsburys and see your own face haha. A lot of people have contacted me to ask what makeup I was wearing that day so I figured I would put up a list of everything I used. The secret to my picture perfect skin was actually a combination of two foundations. I applied some Estee Lauder Double Wear using a Beautyblender and then finished it off by buffing in some Laura Mercier Mineral Powder using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. Now thats not something I would ever do in real life but it certainly made my skin look amazing and surprisingly it didn't look or feel like I had completely smothered my face in foundation. I wanted my eyebrows to look perfect so I used my SUQQU Eyebrow pen rather than the powder I normally opt for. It has such a precise fine tip so its ideal for creating your dream brows.

The coral cheeks were the focus of my makeup so I wanted to do something a bit special. First of all I applied a Topshop cream blush using a Real Techniques Stippling Brush. Then I built it up by blending some Benefit Coralista over my cheeks using a Real Techniques Blush Brush. Coralista is one of my favourite ever blushers and it would've been criminal to leave it out of a coral cheek look. I'm sure you all know about my slight highlighter obsession and my current fave is theBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer. I swept that over the tops of my cheekbones using a Sigma F35 Tapered Highlighter Brush to blend it all together. I also used it all over my eyelids to give them a pretty sheen. So thats my coral makeup look! You might not think that coral is colour that works on you but by layering different products you can create a custom shade that will suit you no matter what your skintone is.

  6. You look lovely! I especially love your brows, they're so defined and dark - definitely my favourite look for brows at the moment. I might have to have a hunt for the eyebrow pen you used, as it makes them look super-defined. Also yay for being featured in Company! Wooo!
