(Makeup Tutorial)

Ahh soft and glowy makeup, you’ve got to love it! It’s quite easy to achieve and it looks amazing on everyone.

Face
The key is to prime and apply a light foundation to keep the skin looking natural. Light Bronzing or Contouring/Highlighting will add dimension to the face and applying a cheek colour that is close to your natural blush will give a subtle “glowing from within” look. 
Primer : MAC Prep + Prime Skin Brightening Serum
Foundation : MAC Face + Body Foundation (C7)
Concealer : MAC Studio Finish Concealer (NC45)
Contour/Highlight : Sleek Kit
Blush : MAC Peaches
Powder : MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
Eyes
Oranges, golds, greens and browns can be used on the eyelids to add some colour. Here I have a browny gold on the lids, and a hint of a bluey/green on the lower lash line. I kept the lining minimal, and went for volumised lashes instead!
Primer : Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Lids : MAC Woodwinked
Brow Bone : Benefit Eye Bright
Upper Lash Line & Waterline : MAC Smolder
Lower Lash Line : Sleek Humming bird (Monaco Palette)
Lashes : L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes & GA Cheryl Lashes
Lips
Nudes, peaches and soft pinks are great for looks like these!
Lipstick : Sleek Peaches & Cream
Lipgloss : MAC Mimmy (LE)
