Step 1 – Face
As I didn’t have enough money for a primer I made sure I moisturised my skin to give a base for my foundation (not included in budget). Next I took my foundation NYC – All Day Long Foundation and pump a large pea sized amount onto the back of my hand then blended it into my face using my finger, as your fingers are free. I then pumped a small pea sized onto the back of my hand and used this as a concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes.
Step 2 – Eyes
I am just using a tiny bit of my foundation to prime my eyes as I don’t have any money within the budget for an eye primer or a concealer. For my eye shadow I am using the NYC – Colour Instinct, Eye Shadow Palette in Picnic in Central Park (what a cute name!). I used the little eye shadow applicator to put the light gold all over my lids, and the Elf – Defining Eye Brush to put the mid toned brown onto the outer part of my lid and then the dark brown into my crease and then I blended them together. I then lined my upper lash line with MUA – Liquid Liner and then curled my eyelashes with my Primark Eye Lash Curler and put MUA – Mascara onto both my top and bottom lashes. I also filled my eyebrows in with MUA – Eye Brow Pencil (Yes this is in blonde and I do have dark brown hair but it was the only one they had and it works alright!). Then brushed though my eyebrows with the attached brush.
Step 3 – Lips
I applied MUA – Lipstick in Juicy onto my lips straight from the tube. I love this colour and it is very pigmented for just £1! I then put a clear lip gloss over the top to add shine, I used MUA – Lip gloss Shade 1.
Over all I am very happy with the look I created I just wish I could have used a primer and concealer but apart from that I am very happy with it! I am also very proud of myself for being £1.04 under budget!
