Tone It Down

Now the time to celebrate is over I've been reluctant to let the dramatic bronze metallic shades and dark lips go, instead I've replaced it with this toned down version that looks just as pretty but is far more appropriate for the gloomy months.

I pair Le Blanc de Chanel together with the Laura Mercier Mineral Powder to create fresh, healthy looking skin, using YSL Touche Eclat to lighten and highlight key areas. NARS Penny Lane produces a subtle warmth to the cheeks, which is a soft, natural nude-peach shade. From the Inglot Freedom Palette I apply 402, blending outwards a little and then reapplying to the center of the lid for a boost of colour; I apply Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara for long, well defined lashes. For the lips I use Korres Lip Butter in Wild Rose, which can be built up to create a gorgeously deep red shade or worn lightly for a slight flush of colour.
