Two Bronzed and Glowing Natural Makeup Looks…

chanel rouge coco lipstick review

Thank you so much to those who commented on my makeup in the Chanel Rouge Coco photographs; it’s actually part of a look that I was filming for an upcoming Max Factor video! To give you a sneaky preview of what I had on my skin; I buffed in the Skin Luminizer foundation in shades 55 and 75 (75 in the “contour areas” and 55 elsewhere, to give a kind of natural glow) and then I used the new Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in “Nude Mauve” as a brightening, subtle bronzer. There’s also a bit of Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow going on in there, with highlights on top of the cheekbones and over the top of the brow bone, and the luminous colour on my eyelids is Lady Godiva from Sunday Riley. I did a final flush of pink blush using the Creme Puff in Lovely Pink. (The lipstick in the photo above is the Chanel Rouge Coco in Catherine – read the post for more info.)

There will be a full video of this look next week at some point, so keep an eye on my Youtube channel if you want to see it unfold. It’s actually quite similar, skintone-wise, to the bronzey, natural makeup look (above) that I wore for my Topshop Maternity post – though that used Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow over a base of Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in shade 20. (The Chanel foundation is possibly my most-used makeup product in the last twelve months. You can read the review with close-up pics here.)

I went with a bit of a heavier shadow underneath the cheekbones in the Topshop look. I’ve been playing about with the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Brush recently and there’s definitely a bit more sculpting going on here! (I also have the Kat Von D contour makeup palette, I’ll report back on that soon. Seeing as though this contouring craze shows no sign of abating.)

In the future I will try to remember to cite full product lists when I do a post; sometimes, though, I’ve taken the pictures a week or so before and haven’t got the foggiest what I had on my face…
