Blonde Hair. Blue Eyes. Fairy Skin.

Updated: Apr 22, 2019

Welcome back! This week, I had an opportunity to work together with this beautiful girl. She's the first girl on my blog with blonde hair and blue eyes. It was an experience to make a makeup on her light skin with freckles. I always wanted to make a similar makeup, like this. I'm glad I didn't have to draw freckles, because they were already there naturally. I'll describe in detail how I worked and what products I used.

I cleaned her face with micelle water, before applying the makeup. It was the very first step, as always.

The work started with face products. I picked the Face and Body foundation from MAC for this makeup and I applied it with a Zoeva brush (117/PETIT DEFINED BUFFER). It's a lightweight, water-based foundation. It was the perfect choice, because her skin was clean and healthy, so I didn't need full coverage. I didn't want to hide the freckles, I want them to be seen and this foundation didn't cover them completely. I didn't use powder after the foundation, because I didn't want a matte finish at the end and I was striving for the natural effect. The next step was contouring the face. I used the the same foundation again (it was a darker shade this time) and I marked the places (under the cheekbones and on the forehead) where I wanted to work. I applied this foundation with my Zoeva brush (117/PETIT DEFINED BUFFER). I used the Contour Cream Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills to finally sculpt her face. As many of you may know, this product comes in four versions. I was contouring with the Light Sculpt shade from the one called Light. I applied it with the same Zoeva brush as mentioned above. I like to use this brush for the cream contouring, because of its perfectly angled bristles. For the next part I used the Lip Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills to blush. Yes, you read it right. I mixed up the Vibrant Pink shade with the Nutri-Gold oil from L'oreal and applied it with my fingers. The last creamy product I used on her face was the highlighter. I chose the 3D highlighter palette from Huda Beauty. The Capri shade is the only one from The Pink Sands Edition which has a creamy finish, so I opted for this one. I applied this shade with my fingers again. I do that usually with all my creamy highlighters. Now comes the powder products. The Natural Face palette from Too Faced was perfect to fix the creamy shades of the contour and the blush. I used the Sunny Honey and the Pink Wink shade. I applied them with Zoeva brush (101/FACE DEFINER). The only face product which is still missing is the powdery highlighter. This was the first time trying out the Sun Dipped Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I was satisfied with it, but this experience is not enough to write a review so I will try to use it more often. The Moonstone was a perfect shade for her skin tone. I hope you like it.

Let's talk about eyebrows. At first I used the Brow Spectrum palette from Zoeva. This brow powder gives a good base. The second step was using the Dipbrow Pomade's Medium Brown shade from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It's perfect for drawing the missing eyebrow threads. I used ABH-Brush 12 for that part. The final step was to shape and comb the threads with my transparent Brow Set from MAC. The result is usually a beautiful, but natural eyebrow.

The next part was the eyes. I needed two palette for this look, the Naked Smoky palette from Urban Decay and Textured Shadows Palette - Rose Gold Edition from Huda Beauty. I used the Naked Smoky palette first and blended the Thirteen shade on the whole eyelid with Zoeva brush (228/LUXE CREASE). I continued with the Dagger shade on the outer eyelid, but this time with Zoeva brush (234/LUXE SMOKY SHADER) and blended it with a different Zoeva brush (227/LUXE SOFT DEFINER). I preferred the Maneater shade for the middle of the eyelid from the Huda Beauty palette. I worked with the same brushes I used with the Dagger. I decided to apply the Moon Dust on the inner eyelid with Zoeva brush (237/DETAIL SHADER). The next step was completing the eye with an eyeliner. I draw only a thin line to make her eyelashes look longer. The product I used was a brown eyeliner gel from Anastasia Beverly Hills, the Waterproof Créme Color. It was applied with Zoeva brush (317/WING LINER). I used the same product for the waterline. She had her false lashes on and I thought they are ok what means the eyes were done.

We are coming to the end of this makeup look and the final but very important step to describe is the lips. I decided to use the Lip Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I chose the Red Oak Brown shade and draw a precise lip with my Zoeva brush (331/PRECISION LIP). It was essential to chose an intense colour to emphasise her beauty.
