Please,please, please don’t do that!

Don’t do that mistake and try to find 10 minutes for putting your working face on, mean the part and feel confident!  This is the easy quick morning look for the working girl that I will be very soon sharing with you with my video tutorial. We all deserve to have our own 10 minutes in the morning that will make our day!

Sun Kissed look explained

Good morning everyone, happy Monday and hope you all have a great week ahead. I love when my precious followers ask for more details on one of my blog posts / looks and this time I was asked to give more details and tips on the sun kissed look that you all so enjoyed.

BeFunky_DSC_0048 sunkissed explained

The steps to do this look are easy because you are already basing it to your tanned complexion, but here are the details….

1. Moisturize  – The first step is to have a well moisturized face, and around the eyes area. A well moisturized face means that the products will be easier to apply and give a smooth effect. collage beauty products

{My moisturizing products at the moment}

2. Foundation & Concealer – The secret to this look is the foundation. For the summer months that our skin goes a bit darker I would advise to invest in a darker shade than the one you use for winter time, it just makes things a lot easier and you don’t have to be blending it with your bronzer to match the colour. Although, if owning two products is too much to ask, then your bronzer will have to work a bit harder to avoid that white ash look. For this look I went for the Mac Face and Body NC3. Make sure you use a round brush to blend it in well and start from the nose area where the redness is usually gathered.

For the concealer the only thing that you have to pay attention to is not to go too light. Blend well with a brush, step back and check, is there a big contrast to the foundation, if yes blend again.

3. Bronzer – Bronzer is the hidden ace on your sleeve for this look. For my sun kissed look I used No7 Dual Bronzer. From the very start of my make up career I tend to use dual bronzers, I just feel that I have more of a choice and I don’t need to carry many products with me. Depending on your complexion blend the two or just use the most appropriate shade. Remember the no3 trick. Shape No3 on your face starting from your cheeks going up to your forehead and the going down to your cheeks again and last to your chin, with gentle strokes. The result should be subtle and natural.

If you get these top 3 steps right then the rest is easy. For the blusher I went for a natural healthy pink colour and the same for the lipstick. Your eye shadow should be of a natural beige colour reflecting your skins natural shade. Finish up with black mascara.

An easy look for all times – you don’t need expensive products or hundreds of brushes to have a look that will make you feel confident and yourself.

Always here to answer your questions!



Natural sun kissed look

As far as my summer / tanned look lasts, and the calendar is still on September, I will try my best to stretch this summer feeling, although the temperature has dropped dramatically today!

Contrasting to the grey skies that have not decided to change colour yet, a natural sun kissed summer look is the perfect way for your first autumn make up looks, keeping the summer glow till it fades away. BeFunky_DSC_0046.jpgHow did I achieved this? Easy, using the water based foundation by MAC Face and Body, No 7 Compact Dual Bronzer, and a light pink blusher along with a light pink lipstick from Korres (Natural pink).BeFunky_DSC_0048.png

For the eyes I used a matte light purple eye shadow by max factor and black mascara, don’t be restrained in the eye shadow colour, try something close to your skin tone or to a beige tanned tone, keeping it always fresh.

I decided not to fill my eyebrows as I wanted to achieve a very natural look, if you feel that you want to emphasize your eyes more then do go ahead with filling your eyebrows.

If you have any questions feel free to ask, I am always happy to answer!
