How to Fake Natural Beauty (Seventeen Makeup)





So I was in my local boots the other day and they FINALLY had the Seventeen new WOW concealer in stock in my shade (fair). So I celebrated by doing their 3 for 2, and bought two more items along with the concealer (as you do, you know?)

What I didn't realise was how well this trio would work together, and how they would make me want to try a new style of makeup... *gulp* NATURAL. I know. I never wear a natural make up look, I am a very all or nothing type of girl.

So here is how I have been using them, and mini reviews/first impressions on each one.



Swatched, Unblended
On my first try of the WOW Concealer (£4.99) I must admit I wasn't a fan, I used it instead of my NARS Creamy Concealer over my Estee Lauder Double Wear. I found it way too runny, not enough coverage,.. I then huffed and went back and used my NARS.
The following day I was just running into town - so I decided to use it without foundation. This is when it became a game changer. Somehow without foundation, it just covers and blends beautifully. It is the perfect natural finish, I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a more natural look, or even for simple days, but if you are expecting high coverage or a UD/NARS doupe stay clear. I have heard others compare it to touché éclat (as the packaging is near enough the same) but in all honestly I haven't ever used it - so cannot comment, but it is a lovely finish, and worth picking up.
Swatched and Blended in using RT Sculpting Brush
Now the 3 way WOW highlight (£5.99). Oh my goodness. It is like crushed pearls. STUNNING. This is a pale girls dream, but I can see this working on pretty much everyone. Now, this can be used as a primer, mixed in with your foundation, or as a highlight. It works all ways, but I enjoy it most as a highlight.
All you do is pump it onto your hand, and I use it on the top of my cheekbones and up over my eyebrow, along my nose and on my cupids bow. Once it is blended you simply GLOW. In a non glittery way, next time you are in boots I recommending swatching this, I promise you will be admiring your hand all day. This is the best "drugstore" highlight I have found (I count Mary-Lou as Highend) 

The last thing I went for was the Cream Bronzer (£4.99), something I have never tried before (as I am usually scared of bronzers). I am surprised at how much I have loved using this. As it is cream -  it is much easier to work with than powder when it comes to blending.. and really has been giving my face some warmth - without making me look orange or dirty.



So here has been my go to look this week with the sun being out. No foundation, just these 3 items blended in with my Real Techniques Sculpting Brush. I will then add some mascara, brows and some lipgloss. Done, less than 5 minutes to do, quick and easy, no fuss and can withstand the heat. What more can a girl ask for over summer?

Oh and I have had people all week saying how incredible my skin is, and how "Lucky I am" yeah, I sure do love people thinking I look like this without any help! Thanks Seventeen!

  2. I am an all or nothing type of person as well when it comes to my makeup, but sometimes it's nice just to keep things to a minimum. The highlighter looks absolutely gorgeous, and it really makes your skin glow - so pretty!

  3. First of all, you are a natural beauty and frankly, you don't need much makeup. Your skin is gorgeous! This is another UK brand that I wish is easily available here in Canada. I swear US and UK have the best beauty products and Canada gets kick in the nuts or so to speak. LOL!

  5. I love that highlighter! I, too, saw it in Boots and almost was tempted myself if I hadn't just brought one!

    I also can't use bronzer with ought looking as though I've just found face planted a heap of builders sand! I consider myself too pale for the please of bronzer.

  8. I really like this natural look on you, your skin looks so healthy and with a subtle glow! Personally, I've always favoured natural makeup, though mainly because I don't trust myself to do anything more dramatic without massively screwing up haha!

  18. I'd love to try that highlighter! Natural make up is my favourite, especially for warm summer days :) And it takes me less than 10 minutes to get ready - I just put on my CC cream, highlighter, subtle blush, mascara and a red lipstick and I'm ready to go :D
