Golden Eyes || Guest Post

Aloha, I'm Natalie from itsNMC a beauty & lifestyle blog. When i saw that Megan was looking for guest bloggers on Twitter,  i jumped at the chance! I've only recently got back into blogging and I'm currently really enjoying it. With quite a fair amount of extra time on my hands i thought it would be the perfect opportunity for me. So today as you can tell, I'm doing a makeup post. I don't often do these, or at least i haven't for a while so i thought, why the hell not! Its nothing too special but i found an eyeshadow I've had hidden away in my drawer for almost a year and i thought i should give it a whirl! After priming my face and eyes with Benefit Porefessional i applied my everyday foundation which is Bourjois Healthy Mix in the shade Light Vanilla. To conceal under my eyes, down my nose and to highlight my cupids bow i applied Collection Lasting perfection concealer in the shade Fair. Everyone knows how good that concealer really is, and how it covers almost anything so its a must have for me. To set my base i applied Natural Collection pressed powder in the shade Neutral. I speak about this a lot on my blog, as not many people turn to it. But it works wonders for my skin and I've never gone elsewhere. Now its time to get my brow game on, as with them finished i already feel 100x better. I start by using Avon Glimmerstick brow definer in the shade Blonde to draw the guide line across the bottom of my brows right down to the tail. Then i take Vivo Ultimate brow & eye kit along with the brush inside and fill in the spaces with the middle shade right up to the start of each brow, whilst trying to make sure they blend evenly.
It's here that i start on my eyes. I lined the lower part of my eye and covered the whole of my eye lid in my Bellapierre Cosmetics shimmer powder in the shade Celebration. I was amazed by the pigmentation, the shimmer and the over all colour of this shadow. Its like nothing I've ever used before & I just wish i had got better photographs of it for you. As to the eye, its beautiful! The great thing about this powder, is that you can use it all over the face for several things such as bronzer or eyeliner when using the correct applicators. For the inner half of my eye lid i applied L'Oreal Infallible in the shade Hourglass beige. They both blended well together as they have a similar finish and this helped to brighten my eyes. Next I applied a very faint amount of eyeliner along my upper eyelash line by using my Rimmel Soft kohl in Jet black. I find pencil is less precise than liquid and isn't as harsh when i want the look to be more about my eyeshadow than the liner. I then coated my lashes in my trusty Soap & Glory Thick & fast mascara.
To continue my bronzed look i used Vivo Baked bronzer in shade number 2 along my cheek bones just to slightly darken my face and almost contour. The bronze shimmer on this is a perfect match and i would highly recommend Vivo products if you have never tried any. On my lips MUA Intense kisses lipgloss in shade Kiss and make up. This gloss is non sticky and stays in a place longer than some lipsticks i own! So that's my guest post finished, so thank you for reading and thank you to Megan for allowing me to post on her blog. She's such a lovely, genuine person and I'm really grateful.
