Glowy Skin with Smokey Grey Eyes

I think we should ditch the over contouring look, let's focusing on keeping the skin dewy and bringing eyes out!

First things first is prepping your skin. If you want the dewy look it's best to use a glow primer on the high points of the face such as cheek bones and brow bone. Next use a foundation of your choice. I personally like Dior skin nude for the all over glow. Using a Beauty Blender to blend everything together keeps that healthy dewy look. Making sure your Beauty Blender is damp. At this stage you can start contouring if that's what you like, I prefer to use creams as they are much more softer and subtle looking on the skin. I am currently loving the Sleek cream contour kit, it's creamy and the colours are just right in term of tones. The formula of the Sleek contour kit goes perfectly with the foundation choice.

Next you can start concealing under eyes, I like to go between Tarte Creaseless concealer if the under eye circles are more prominent and Charlotte Tilbury retoucher concealer if theres slight eye bags or discolouration. I use a Micro Beauty Blender to blend the concealer out.

Blending your contour
People will tell you mixed things about what's the best way to blend your contour with your foundation. I think it's all to do with personal preference. If someone has more oily skin I like to use a brush to blend in the cream contour with the foundation and if someone is closer to the dryer side I use a beauty blender. This is just my own way of blending, you can try either one and see which worked better for you.

Setting your base
I like to set the whole face with a powder foundation, this may sound scary or too much but it's more to do with the tool and how light handed you are with this. I like to use a big brush to set the face foundation just so the glow is still there and the powder isn't over powering or chalky looking.

Pop of colour
Pink tone's are really pretty at the moment so opt for the pastel tones when choosing a blusher colour.
The brands and colours I usually go for at the moment are Urban Decay blusher in the colour Cherry from the Gwen Steffani collection and L'Oreal Blusher in the colour 145 Rosewood.

Extra glow?
If you can't get enough of your glow then try Nars Illuminator (cream) in Orgasm it adds that extra strobing effect that so many of us crave! Don't worry about using it over powder, gently press on to the skin using your ring finger. It will blend into your blush and dry after a few seconds leaving you with the 'glossy' look.

Save time with your eye makeup and use one palette! For grey tones I like 'Rock chick' palette by Charlotte Tilbury. Using the matte grey all over the lid and bottom lash line and the shimmery silver pressed onto the middle of the lid. I like to slightly smudge a black Kohl Pencil by Mac in smoulder and blending it out with a My brush. Adding medium individual lashes by Ardell with a coat of Lancome Hypnose mascara on top and bottom.
