This week I'm bringing you a make-up look I created using some products I received from Lisa Blur London. There's also a fabulous discount code further down so you can get your hands on some of the lovely products too! Lisa Blur London is a make-up brand which provides professional products at reasonable prices. The collection is described as bringing 'luxury as well as practicality' to you.
I used the Metallic Ultra Eyeshadow in 'Fierce' (£10) and Cheek Blush in 'First Blush' (£15) from the range. I wanted to create a smokey look that was wearable from day to evening to show how practical the products really are.
To create the look I applied my foundation base as usual and those all important brows. I contoured using the L.A. Girl Concealer in Espresso and used MAC bonzer in Matte Bronze, as I wanted a sun-kissed look.
For the eyes, I applied Urban Decay Primer Potion to hold the product in place. The first colour I applied was actually a dark matte brown colour (Kiko Infinity Eyeshadow in Metallic Rose) for Fierce to sit on top of. I did this as I wanted to deepen the colour for a more dramatic look. If you wanted to go a step further you could even apply a black eyeshadow first and then apply Fierce over the top. This really brings out the true colour of the green gold. I made sure to apply the brown quite high over the lid so it would blend into the transition colour too. Next I applied a liberal amount of Fierce over the top. If you watch my snapchat or Instagram Stories (aminaali_mua) you would have heard me say that there was a little bit of fall out. However it was a very small amount and is expected with the amount I was applying. I used a clean brush to brush it away. Overall I was happy with the pigmentation and the eyeshadow performed as I would expect an eyeshadow to in the price range. It was long lasting and blended easily.
Through the crease I then applied a Kiko High Pigment Eyeshadow in Sienna (a matte orange colour) and blended it through with a blending brush. I applied a Rimmel Kohl liner to the upper and lower lash line and to the water line and smudged using a smudging brush. To complete the look I added Nouveau Lashes in Natural Style 1. If you wanted more of a dramatic look you could add lashes from their Glamour range.
I then moved onto the blush. I have to say I love the colour of First Blush. It is such a beautiful peach and perfect for my skin tone. It has tiny flecks of gold glitter in it and kind of reminds me of Chanel Joues Contrast Blush in Reflex but for a fraction of the price.
On the lips I applied MAC Spice lip liner and Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Nude. The combination of these two is perfection.
Lisa Blur cosmetics are definitely something I can see in my kit and looking at the whole range I also like the look of their Contour Palette (£29) which looks comparable to the Anastasia Beverley Hills one, and their Sheer Glo Illuminators (£15), which come in four colours and can be mixed in with foundation or used on their own. I think I will be trying these next!
