To re-create this look you will need the following products from Neek Skin Organics and Ultraceuticals:
This look is all about creating a smooth flawless complexion and a gorgeous soft natural pout. The nail art is, fun, eye-catching and actually very easy to achieve using Kester Black’s dotting tool. I chose to make the eyes smoky to contrast and compliment the nude, pink toned lips.
A good foundation base is only achieved if the skin has the right moisture levels and isn’t too oily or too dry. I started by lightly moisturising my model Pauline’s skin.
Once the moisturiser has completely absorbed into the skin, I applied Ultraceuticals Complete Correction Pure Mineral Powder Foundations. These mineral powder foundations come in five shades and the darkest shade doubles as a bronzer. I used a darker shade as my foundation base and then applied the no.2 shade to highlight the cheekbones, eyelids and conceal dark shadows under the eyes.
To set the foundation and give skin a soft dewy look, I lightly spritzed over the entire face Ultraceuticals Ultra Balancing Skin Mist.
I love Neek Skin Organics lipsticks! It is really important that the products we use on our skin and especially on our lips are safe. Neek Skin Organics lipsticks are not only safe, but they are vegan and 100% natural. The colour I choose for this look was “Come Into My World”, a totally gorgeous, soft nude pink tone.
Eyes & Cheeks
Using a selection of CCF-Accredited products from my professional make-up kit, I added a champagne shimmer to the eyelids as a base shade and then used a black mineral powder, mixed with a very dark brown taupe shade, which I applied to the entire lower lid and socket area.
I then lined the top and inside the rim of the bottom lashes with a black kohl pencil and blended the line to soften using the same smoky eyeshadow mix and a small vegan brush.
The dark taupe mineral eyeshadow was used to define Pauline’s brown and was followed with lashings of vegan black mascara.
And these products from Kester Black:
When I was sent the Kester Black Nail Art Tool the first thing that came into my head was DOTS! As each end of the wooden tool has a small metal ball on it, with one end being larger in size than the other.
I also wanted lots of different colours, so I selected a range of my favourite Kester Black Vegan Nail Polishes and painted a different colour on each nail. Then using the Kester Black Nail Art Tool started dotting away to create my patterns, using contrasting colours to the base colour on the nail, in order to make the design standout.
The official Choose Cruelty Free rabbit logo I drew onto Pauline’s finger using a black tip eyeliner pen from MOMMA (MOMMA products will be featured in an upcoming look).
