My Make-up Transformation


Hello beauties! Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of make-up transformation posts in the beauty bloggersphere so I decided to put on my brave face and show you my make-up transformation. The picture on the left is of me without make-up, yes I know I look hella tired haha! The picture on the right is after make-up. No filters or editing have taken place in either.

I genuinely enjoy the process of putting on make-up and playing around with different looks by matching it to my mood and outfit, I’d say it’s one of the things I love about being a woman. However, that’s not to say I don’t like the way I look without it. Overall, I quite like my features and use make-up to enhance them; my favourite feature is my skin which I invest a lot of time into keeping it healthy and clear. The only thing I’d say I really dislike are the pesky hereditary dark circles which make me look a bit sick and tired! Also my eyebrows are in the process of growing out after years of over plucking so I have some bald spots in them (oops).

The look above is a simple one I’ve been wearing a lot recently as it takes less than 15 minutes to do and it makes my skin look so warm and glowly, perfect for the Summer.

Products used:

Foundation – MAC Studio Sculpt (NC44) + Estee Lauder Double Wear (4N2)

Concealer – L.A. Girl Pro-Conceal (Medium Beige)

Setting Powder – Nars Pressed Powder (Mountain), Ben Nye Pressed Powder

Eyebrows- Anastasia DipBrow Pomade (Ash Brown)

Mascara – Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde

Bronzer – Elf Baked Bronzer (Los Cabos)

Highlight – MAC Cream Colour Base (Hush)

Lipstick – Gerard Cosmetics (1995)

So to all beauty bloggers reading this post I invite you to show me your make-up transformations. It can be a bit scary posting an “au naturel” picture of yourself on the interwebs for the whole world to see, but feels incredibly liberating at the same time.
