The Classic Look

Is there a girl out there who doesn't love a classic red lip & liner? I don't think so. 
Personally, it's one of my favourites but is one I leave for special occasions.

The good thing with a classic look is that it's versatile & can be made dressier or more casual. Use this look for your wedding day, a beauty blogger event, a party or even for every day life!

The Base




                                       





For your base, you want a good sturdy primer to keep this classic look in it's place. I love this Hourglass 'Veil' primer which you'll find a review for here. 



Another thing to remember is that if you're using this look for an evening do or a wedding then you'll want a foundation without an SPF. No one likes a shiny face in photo's!

Next stop to brighten & fix those little niggles is a great concealer & eye brightener. Bobbi Brown have this amazing tinted eye brightener which also acts as a concealer & the NARS creamy concealer is as good as it's foundation & really covers those blemishes.

The Eyebrows


                                                             

Before you start the statement eye look, frame your face by adding some umph to your eyebrows. I love these MAC pots & use a variation of the two in order to get the look I'm after.


The Eyes



                                                       

Get yourself a good liquid liner that you're confident using & create those statement flicks.


The Lips



                                                                 

Find your boldest red liner & lippy & go crazy!




Complete The Look




                                                             

                         To finish off your look, add some contour, bronzer & power.


Et voila - complete!
