Happy belated New Year Everyone!
So sorry I wasn’t able to blog towards the end of the year as I’ve had lots of work to catch up on. But as we’re now in the first month of 2019, I’d like to turn over a new leaf and talk about the first makeup mood of January 2019!
Out with the cut creases of 2018 and in with the old school 60s eye-shapes in 2019.
Now, if you’re a long term subscriber to THE BELPER, you’ll notice that this makeup theme (that being inspired by the era of the 60’s) isn’t new. However that’s pretty much the point of what I wanted to talk about.
Makeup Trend Alert:
Look out for the old school cut creases and 70s inspired eye shadings peaking through in 2019. As well as natural brows I’m sure we’ve all observed during the past year, we will be veering into a more natural/skin like territory with foundation and concealer again.
On that note, if you’re a full coverage foundation lover like me, you may find that trying out more lightweight foundations could actually help complete the mood of a lot of new eye-looks you’d like to try out this year. You’d be surprised at how most times natural result foundations can flatter the skin more than full coverage ones. (Foundation reviews will be coming soon!)
Now, back to the eyeshadow, I shot this edit focussing on the eyes and chose a pale blue shade this time as I felt like it represented a refreshing sense of the new year this – 2019. It’s very expressive and carefree, which I love!
Foundation – L’Oréal Total Cover Foundation & Primark My Perfect Colour Foundation
Concealer – L.A. Girl HD Concealer in ‘Cool Tan’
Powder – RCMA No Colour Powder & KIKO GreenMe Loose Bronzer in ‘Raw Sienna’
Blusher – NIP+FAB Contour Palette in ‘DARK’
Contour – Sleek Contour Palette in ‘Medium’
Mascara – Technic Mascara
Eyeshadow – Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette (mainly using: ‘Metamorphosis’ & Bump’ mixed)
Lipstick – A dab of L.A. Girl HD Concealer in ‘Cool Tan’ to create a blank canvas in the centre of my lips. Followed by a pink nude lipgloss by NYC Cosmetics (discontinued).
That’s all for this short editorial! Do let me know what you think of this eye-look and if it’s something you’d actually try out for the spring of 2019!
I’m wishing you all a wonderful, prosperous and eye-opening year in 2019.
Thank you all so much for stopping by The Belper!
Lots of love,
