Soft & Pretty Make-up

IMG_0335 2


V-day is almost here and lets face it, less is always more when it comes to makeup! No man wants lipstick all over his face or (as my boy refers to) “sticky shit” on his lips. It’s a day to embrace imperfections and making the skin look as radiant as possible. Soft airy textures always look best in my opinion and need little to no touch-ups throughout the day. Here’s my take on Soft & Perdy. . .

I started out by priming the skin with the *Burberry Fresh Glow in No. 1 Nude Radiance to add some glow to my face. For base I decided to skip foundation and opt for the *Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint in Bronzed, this looks undetectable on the skin and gives it a tone of moisture. I set the base in place with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light. I then did some cheek action with my trusty *Jouer Bronzer in Suntan which is a very natural shade for me and gives shape to my face. I used the new *Jouer Luminizing Liquid Highlighter in No. 01 Nude Light to highlight the skin even further applying it to the tops of the cheeks, bridge of the nose, cupids bow and brow bone (this stuff is amazing). To finish the face I dabbed a bit of the *Jouer Tint in Petal for some color with a stippling brush, Jouer is my go to brand when I want my skin to look its best.

For the eyes I wanted the lashes to be the main focus (there might be some fluttering action going on at dinner time). I used the Chanel Illusion D’ombre Shadow in Emerveille as a base for M.A.C All That Glitters. These are both peachy pinky neutral shades that will look great against dark lashes. I then lined my waterline with Illamasqua’s Medium Pencil in Hex which is just a basic nude shade to open up the eyes even more. After the eyeshadow was blended I then curled my lashes and added 2 layers of the Maybelline Full & Soft Waterproof Mascara. Finally the lips! I prepped them by using a lip scrub from Lush and wanted to apply something moisturizing but still with a hint of color. Keeping it very simple I used the *ByTerry Baume De Rose in Rosy Babe to complete the look.

    Looking gorgeous! I’ve added so many of these products to my wishlist – I’m all about the ‘no makeup’ makeup look, so some of these should be perfect.

    hello Tamira! I was wondering what base you like the most of the Nars tinted moisturizer, the Jouer illuminating tinted moisturizer and the Chanel aqua vitaluminere foundation? I am torn between which one to buy. Thank you 🙂

    • I’d have to say the Jouer is the most natural out of the bunch but the Nars TM has a bit more coverage! The Chanel VLA is very similar to the Nars TM. If I had to choose I’d say it’s the Jouer Luminizing Tint but it does have some shimmer in it, it’s very subtle so if that isn’t something you like go with the Nars one!

  • Laura Neuzeth

    You look absolutely stunning! I love how soft this look is. My boyfriend is also not a fan of gloss at all. He’s never commented on my makeup except for one time I wore a Maybelline Color Elixir. He was not a fan at all. lol

  • Lydia B.

    Ah, you look GREAT! Love how soft and pretty your lashes look. xx

    Hahaha your first paragraph reminded so much of my boyfriend! He has a total aversion to lip balms (which I put on every night of course), and he always complains when he kisses me good night AFTER I put it on, lol.

    Beautiful look Tamira!
