My Bronzed Holiday Makeup with Hot Red Lips


Evening Bronzed Holiday Look with Hot Red Lips

I’m supposed to be on a self-imposed work ban on this holiday (I’m in Greece), but the other afternoon it started to pour down with rain and Mr AMR was watching old cowboy films on the television and so I decided to kill some time and make a quick beauty video. There’s only so much Kindle-reading a girl can do! (I’ve polished off three huge books now – for my full reading list see yesterday’s post.) I chose to film an evening makeup look with red hot lips (NARS Heatwave) and a little bit of a smouldering eye.

I started the look with just bare, moisturised skin – no foundation, but I had been prepping with the Clarins Radiance-Plus tanner (here) to give myself a gorgeous bronzed glow. Then, just a touch of concealer (Dior BB) and a dusting of Guerlain bronzer before I went in for the main event…

Can I just say right this minute that Illamasqua’s Vintage Metallix cream eyeshadow from the new collection is amazing? You can see in the video that I apply it in one fell swoop with my eye brush and it looks brilliant and perfect with very little effort. It doesn’t budge once it has set and the metallic finish is stunning. You can find the shadow at Selfridges here. £16.50, which I don’t think is too steep at all for such a brilliant little makeup morsel.

And then the lips, lined in a red KIKO lipliner and filled in with dangerously bright Heatwave from NARS, which is a great colour to slick on when you feel a bit bronzed and sexy. You can see the whole step-by-step in the video below – all of the product links are at the bottom of the page. Enjoy – I’m going back to my glass of Rosé!
