♥ Leona Lewis Inspired Glitter Make-Up - Perfect for New Year's Eve ♥

Today I am going to show you a make-up tutorial that I am really excited about! If you watch the x factor in the UK, then you might of seen Leona Lewis preforming and well lets just say see looked stunning! I instantly wanted to re-create it and have finally gotten around to putting my own spin on it. I will have a list at the end of the products that Leona's Make-Up artist Jane Bradley used. This make-up is also perfect for New Years as you'll be making a statement looking amazing going into the new year!

I am going to start with my eyes then after doing the glitter I will move on to my face and then go back to my eyes and then onto my lips... make sense? If it does then well done!

- Urban Decay - Primer Potion, all over my eyelids,
- Mac - Haux all over my eyelids,
- Mac - Sketch in my crease,
- I am using Collection - Glam Crystals in 1 Glitz, all over my eyelids. My tips for doing this is take your time start from the inner corner and work outwards, also you need to do it into many layers and do little bits let it dry and go back over it.
- While the Glitter is drying I started my face, I used Benefit PoreFessional as my base,
- I am now concealing anything I didn't like the look of with Mac Pro Longwear Concealer - this has a very full coverage, which is what I wanted as Leona has perfect skin!
-For foundation I am going to use Rimmel - Match Perfection, I am using this as it gives a nice faces and lasts well on the skin. 
- To conceal any darkness under my eyes I am using Maybelline Dream Lumi Highlighting concelar,
- To set everything in place I am going to use Rimmel - Stay Matt pressed powder,
- Now the glitter should be dry were going to go back and darken up the crease with Mac - Sketch,
- Now I am using a gel eyeliner on my upper lash line, I am going to use Mac - Fluidline in Blacktrack,
- I am now curling my eyelashes and applying Benefit's They're Real mascara,
- I am now adding Katy Perry by Eyelure - Oh Honey eyelashes and then adding another coat of mascara to blend my eyelashes,
- I am then using Mac - Sketch on my lower lash line and building it up so that it is quite intense, then adding mascara to my lower eyelashes,
- I am now going to use Benefits - Hoola Bronzer, this is a matt bronzer so is great for contouring which is what I am now going to do. I am also going to take it up to my temples, cheekbones and under my chin. Then using what is left on my brush over the rest of my face,
- For my blush I am going to use Benefit - Sugarbomb, it's not the best for this look but I thought it went well.
- For Highlighting my cheekbones and under my brows I am going to use Benefit - High Beam,
- To fill by brows I am going to start with Rimmel - Eyebrow Pencil in Deep Brown and finish filling them in with Mac -Wedge eyeshadow as Leona has quite defined eyebrows.
- I am going to apply Carmex Lip balm in pink as a base for my lipstick,
- To finish the look I am going to apply Mac - Creme Cup lipstick, this is a cremesheen finish so it gives a bit of shine once applied.
I used what products I had that were the same that Leonas make-up artist used but here is a list of everything she used:
-Armani Foundation,
-Mac Select Cover Up,
-Mac Omega Eyeshadow,
-Mac Espresso Eyeshadow,
-Hustle4 Glitter,
-Mac Fluidline Blacktrack,
-Mac False Lash Mascara,
-Liz Earl Light Reflecting Concealer, 
-Mac Impeccable Brow Pencil
-Liz Earl Blossom Cream Blush
-Mac Stone lip Pencil
-Mac Lovelorn Lipstick
-Amazing Shine Lashes

    1. It's really easy as it is a liquid liner and you don't have to play about with fine glitter which can get pretty messy! x
