An Affair With Fashion Fair

So if you have been reading the blog for a while (which hopefully you have haha), I have always had the biggest beauty crush on Fashion Fair products since the age of sixteen, when I knew absolutely nothing and couldn't tell the difference between eyeliner, eyebrow pencil and lip liner..... oh how things have changed. After working and reviewing Fashion Fair products on the blog several times, I thought it was only right to put together a makeup tutorial, focusing and featuring majority of products from Fashion Fair of course. So on this occasion, I thought I would put together an everyday look and hopefully soon a nighttime/evening date look.
To achieve this look I made sure to have exfoliated my skin the night before by using Nip+Fab's Glycolic fix scrub to ensure on achieving a smooth base for my makeup application the next morning.  After cleansing my face with the Harley Medical Gentle Cleanser in the morning and moisturising with Amie Skincare Morning Dew Matte Moisturiser, which helps to keep my skin matte before makeup application, I choose to matte my skin before as I suffer with Oily/Combination. Even after this step to avoid shine I use the Laura Mercier foundation primer. (I have not yet found a primer better than this one, but if you could send me recommendation of your primer of choice that is on par with this one,  I would love to look into it).
My base follows a pretty simple routine something I can do in a jiffy, so I can pop out as quickly as possible. Using a stipple brush I apply my Fashion Fair True Finish foundation in Alluring Cocoa all over the face ensuring to build coverage over those blemishes, I then highlight under eyes with the True Finish foundation in Rich Toffee (a slightly lighter shade) to give dimension to my face. On an everyday look I reach for my Makeup revolution Focus and Fix Eyebrow Kit in darkest shade, to achieve my desired look I use long soft strokes following the natural shape of my eyes (nope no HD brows in this post, I am aiming for something natural), then I neaten my brows with the La Girl Concealer in fawn, And that's how quickly I achieve my base,
Powdering is as simple as 1,2,3. By applying Fashion Fair loose powder in Golden Dore, with a beauty blender- I use the powder in the same way I would my banana powder (for evening looks), under my eyes, my temple, chin and the button of my nose to act as a highlight and let it bake slightly (ensuring I'm not using lots of product) and the rest of my face, I dust lightly using a powder brush and a light hand of Vichy Dermablend Translucent powder.
As I wanted to use a spectrum of browns purples and golds in this look I opted for using the Fashion Fair Eyeshadow in Plum Sunset as my blush on the apples of my cheeks, to give me that ever so sought after flushed rosy cheeks. Many people love to highlight and even I do on an everyday basis but with a light, light hand so it's not very noticeable, to achieve this I use the Fashion Fair compact powder in Air and tap that onto my cheekbones, cupids bow and on my eyebrow bone.
My eyes and lips are my favourite of them all, using a combination of Fashion Fair Eyeshadows in Safari Brown and Ginger Snap, I worked and blended Safari Brown into the crease of my eyelid and worked it upwards, then applied Ginger Snap over the eyelid for a copper glint in the middle and viola, a perfect everyday eyeshadow combination. My winged liner was created by using the Collection 24 felt tip liner- as it gives such easy precision when creating lines and gives a deep black that doesn't budge. To elongate my lashes I used the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara to give the illusion of long separated eyelashes.
The beautiful lip colour is by Fashion Fair in Royal Orchid, I first applied this beauty by using a lip liner brush to outline my lips and then filled in my lips with lipstick on top. To make my lips pop I used a smaller concealing brush to neaten my lips with a little concealer. And to finish the whole look I blend with a powder brush to tone down my highlight baking of Golden Dore and make sure everything is blended and I am ready to WERK IT!
