‘Simplistic Yet Unbeatable’
Oxford Meets Fifth’s makeup advice and fashion tips for women
Whether it is for a wedding, black tie event, date night, a job interview or for an 18th, 21st, 30th or even just to do the shopping; you want to be looking your best. This simple make-up advice creates a look which will elevate any appearance and showcase your features without taking hours or costing a fortune!
A simple concealer is the one cosmetic every woman shouldn’t leave the house without. ‘MAYBELLINE NEW YORK’s Fit Me concealer’ comes in 10 different shades ensuring a perfect colour match for any skin tone and type. Apply this concealer under your eyes, on any blemishes or larger pores.
Apply the BODY SHOP OIL FREE FOUNDATION (posted here) next with the 4pc Pro Beauty Flawless Makeup Blender Foundation Sponges for a flawless finish! You may wish to set your foundation with a light powder but be careful to not ‘cake’ too much powder on.
Next moving on to the eyes; a component which many say is the hardest part of any make-up look! Using the ‘PHYSICIANS FORMULA shimmer eyeshadow strips (universal collection)’ apply a nude colour to your whole eye lid and slightly up towards the brow bone. Next take a small eye shadow brush and apply a dark brown or silvery shade to the creese of your eyes and for a more dramatic look, just under your lower lash line. Take a liner brush, slightly wet it and use the black shadow to line your upper lid and slightly fan the colour outwards. Once again for a more dramatic look repeat this step on your lower lash line.
To further enhance and professionalize your look, take your ‘STILA stay all day waterproof liner’ in black (also available in a range of colours) and line your upper and lower lash line and also bring the line slightly out for a winged eye effect. Slightly blend all of the eyeshadow colours with a blending brush until you are happy with the colour balance. Finish off this perfect eye with COVERGIRL’s Lashblast mascara’ for added length and volume. Apply from the bottom of the lashes to the top. Apply a second coat for thicker, darker and ,once again, a more dramatic look.
To finish this look add ‘MAC lipstick’ in ruby red or plumbery for a day or night look. Ensure when applying this lipstick to achieve even distribution on each side of your upper lip, which will showcase a plump, juicy lip.
This look is perfect for any occasion and can be slightly altered to suit any outfit or mood while also being timeless and trendy. Throw your lipstick, concealer and mascara in your clutch for those midnight touch ups! I highly recommend these products and couldn’t go without them. They are high quality, affordable and long-lasting. As a make-up enthusiast products such as these are unbeatable! All of these products are easy to apply and can be used separately or grouped for a professional sophisticated look.
