#MOTD: Stunt Lads

This is my makeup I wore to a small family meal whilst I was back in Cardiff!

I started off by tackling my eyebrows – I used my Goof Proof Brow Pencil in Dark to define and shape, and set my brows with the Ready! Set! Brow! clear gel.

For my eyes I did a rose gold smokey eye, using my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, my Clionadh Cosmetics highlighter, and my Sleek i-Divine Eye Palette in Storm. For my crease I used Tease from my Naked 2 and blended out – I love using this shade to add warmth to my smokey eyes. I used the shade Snow Storm to define my inner eye, and as a base for my eyelid and layered Perfect storm on my outer eye lid and blended the two together, to create a transition shade. I layered my Slaine highlighter from Clionadh on top to add the rose gold sparkle to it. I used my Kat Von D Ink Liner in trooper to do wings, and added my false eyelashes – as I didn’t want to go full haul for the meal I used my Fleur de Force 3/4 lashes from Eylure. I used my Urban Decay Perversion mascara to blend my natural lashes to the falsies.

For my foundation I used the NYX Angel Veil primer to prime my skin ready, and used my NYX Stay Matte Not Flat in Ivory as my base. I used my Bourjois’ Blur The Lines concealer in Ivory under my eyes and as my highlighter. I used Bourjois’ Mat Illusion Bronzer in Hale Clair to define and contour my cheekbones and nose. I set my concealer and foundation using my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Transparent. To add my glow, I used my Clionadh Cosmetics Llyr to highlight using both the pink and blue shade – as it matched my top, along my cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and temples.

My lipstick is from my Sleek Makeup Matte Me Mini Collection – in the shade Birthday Suit! As usual, I set it all using my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

Sleek MakeUP – Say The Magic Word – Mini Matte Me Collection

The ultimate stocking filler for Matte lip makeup beauty addicts! 

I’m an absolute sucker for Christmas present gift sets – every year is exactly the same. I go out shopping for other people – and somehow come home with goodies for myself from Boots’ 3for2 offer! This was one of my latest items in my “Xmas pressie to myself” haul.

In my defence, I was purposely looking to get this due to the incredible value! I’ve been eyeing up the Sleek Matte Me in ‘Birthday Suit’, as its the ideal dupe for Huda Beauty Liquid Matte in Bombshell! But as I was heading to the Sleek MakeUp display I stumbled upon this gift set that has a mini version of Birthday Suit in it, along with three other shades for just a £5!

Top to Bottom: Birthday Suit, Rioja Red, Velvet Slippers and Old Hollywood.

These lipsticks are mini sized, all sporting 3ml of product – which makes them a lot more Clutch friendly for a night out!

They’re highly pigmented which makes them long wearing – even after my eating and drinking test – only had to reapply once during the whole evening.

Bottom Line: Truly pigmented, high colour pay off matte lipsticks! Plus 4 matte lipsticks for £5?! How can you resist!

Price: £5 at Boots.com.
It’s currently part of Boots 3 for 2 green sticker-ed Xmas pressies!
