The (Affordable) No Foundation Makeup Look

beauty blog makeup tutorial

I think that this has to be the most random video I’ve ever filmed. I just switched the camera on and waffled away and it was only because the eyeshadow palette I tested was so good that I added a proper intro to the start of the video and decided to make a go of editing it. It really is a bit of a “warts and all” sort of thing, but actually I love the finished makeup look and the products that I was playing about with all work really well together.

I said recently that often my best makeup looks were done off-camera: maybe I should just leave the camera casually rolling away more often. The banter isn’t very professional (Ray Winstone impression anyone?) and I’m wearing a towel on my head throughout, but I think I’m in a more relaxed frame of mind and so up for mucking around with textures and finishes.

So here we are; my No Foundation Makeup Look using high street (or “drugstore”) products. The No7 skin illuminator and Bourjois concealer I bought this week are fabulous – very fresh-feeling and perfect for the spring and summer – but the piece de resistance has to be the Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette by Jane at British Beauty Blogger. It’s a tenner and has just about every flattering shade you’d ever want. (Find it here.)
