6 Ruth's A/W'12 Must Have Beauty Looks...


Lauren has asked me to do a spot of make up blogging for you all so here it goes...
This A/W season my must have looks are dewy skin and bold lips!!

Look One: Dewy Skin.

In the cold months ahead I think it's important that we don't let the weather take the glow out of our faces and the best way to do this is with a light reflecting foundation. Here is a list of some foundations I recommend for this look:
  • On a budget? Why not try Rimmel Wake Me-Up Foundation.
  • Little bit of extra cash in the bank? I really recommend M.A.C Mineralize Satinfinish Foundation.
  • For those of you that want to splash out, I love Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation.
  • If you usually like a matte face, why not try SLEEK Luminous Pressed Powder over the top to cover those shiney T zones!

Look Two: Bold Lips.

It's really important when doing a strong lipped look to remember that your eyes should stay to a minimum, as you don't want the attention from your lips to be lost. So keep it simple a touch of eyeliner and mascara can go a long way! 

The colour you go for will depend on your skin tone but my favorite places to buy lipsticks from are No.17 (available at Boots in the UK) and M.A.C however an item I have not been able to live without is my Bobbi Brown 1991 lip palette which is still available in some stores if you ask! It has such a wide range of colours and comes with a cute little lip brush so easy to change my look from day with a neutral pastel colour to night with a strong burgundy red!

Here is a little example that I have done on Lauren. Products used are as follows:

  • M.A.C Mineralize Satinfinish Foundation.
  • Benefit Boi-ing Concealer.
  • No. 17 Brow Pencil.
  • Marks & Spencer Limited Collection Loose Powder.
  • Marks & Spencer Limited Collection Liner in Gunmetal.
  • Topshop Cheeks Highligheter stick in Bay on the hollows or the cheek and luminescence on the appels.
  • No.17 Blow out masscara.
  • No.17 Lasting Fix lipstick in black.

Happy Make-uping
