Army Inspired Drugstore Makeup Tutorial

Hi everyone, how are you all today?

For drugstore week, I wanted to do at least one tutorial, and embrace all my khaki colours love. I did use a few old favourites as well as some newer purchases.

I hope that you enjoy the look.

 

Face

For foundation, I used the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation, which I’m still not convinced is my correct shade. It might be ideal for me in the warmer months, although it’s not too bad at the moment. Under my eyes I used the Superdrug BB Eye Cream as a concealer. I set everything into place using the Maybelline Matte Maker Powder.

To contour slightly, I used The Body Shop’s Honey Matte Bronzer, which blended out beautifully. To diffuse the highlighter slightly, I applied it before blush, and I used the W7 Glowcamotion, which reminds me of The Balm’s Marylou Highlighter. And finally, for blush I dusted a light layer of Model’s Own Rock n’ Rosy Blush in Warmed Almond on the cheeks, blending into the highlighter to create more of an inner glow.

 

Eyes

On my brows I used the Maybelline Brow Drama and Fleur de Force Brow Mascara. These actually work really well together. I love them!

For the eyeshadow, I first used the matte brown shades in the I ♥ Makeup Parental Guidance Palette to define my crease, and then took Neobrass from the Zoeva Mixed Metals Palette, blending out the edges using Bronce. On the lower lash line, I buffed out the bluer shade Ore Stone. Together these actually looked really pretty. In the tear duct area, I patted a small amount of Platinum, which is such a pretty colour.

For liner, I took the Bourjois Feline Liner and created quite a dramatic flick, connecting it to my upper lash line. To tightline I used the Models Own  black Kohl Liner.

To finish off the eyes I used quite a few layers of my Rimmel Volume Shake mascara.

 

Lips

I wanted to go very bold with my lips and wear an earthy dark brown. I used both the lip liner and liquid lipstick from the Glory Makeup Revolution Matte Luxe Lip Kit. Just to warn you, moisturise and exfoliate your lips prior to applying this. The formula for these are very drying! But other than that, it’s a beautiful colour!

 

What are your thoughts on this makeup look? Please let me know any ideas for future tutorials in the comments.

Thanks again for reading, and I’ll see you tomorrow.

Bye for now!
