Sunsets and Raspberry Kisses

66 comments
It's been a while since I did a makeup look on the blog, so I have one for you today! It was inspired by the Deluxe Lip Lacquer I received from Collection recently, called Raspberry Kisses. This beautiful lip gloss reminded me of the deep pink of sunsets, so I decided to put together a sunset inspired look. Hope you like it!

Sunsets and Raspberry Kisses 1 - Collection Deluxe Lip Lacquer in Raspberry Kisses

Base

I'm currently really enjoying Clarins Extra Comfort foundation again. I've always loved the finish of it - probably more than any other base product I've tried so far. My main gripe with it was always that the staying power wasn't the greatest, but as my skin has been quite dry lately, I've found that it's lasting a lot longer on me. Every cloud has a silver lining, right?! I've also applied Collection Lasting Perfection concealer to cover any blemishes, and I've used Clarins Instant Concealer under my eyes, as it's very good at not settling into any fine lines - again, this is better for me while my skin is feeling dry.

Brows

Nothing special here, I just defined them as I always do using Benefit Brow Zings.

Eyes

Over a base of Urban Decay Anti-Ageing Primer Potion, I applied the shade Snobby from theBalm NUDE'tude eyeshadow palette*. It's a really pretty light peach shade and I love wearing it all over the lid. I blended a bit of Sultry into the crease, curled my lashes and added lashings of Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash mascara*.

Bronzer, Blush and Highlight

I swept Benefit Dallas all over for a nice sunkissed glow, then applied Laura Geller Baked Blush-n-Brighten Blush in Tropic Hues* to the apples of my cheeks. This is a really beautiful product - a swirl of pinks and oranges and hints of gold. It basically looks like sunset in a pan so it's perfect for this look! As well as a gorgeous sweep of warm colour, it also has a subtle sheen to it, but even so I dabbed on a little bit of Mac Soft and Gentle for extra glow. You can never have too much glow. Especially when you're trying to look like a sunset.

Lips

As I mentioned at the start of the post, I'm wearing Collection Deluxe Lip Lacquer in Raspberry Kisses*. It's a really beautiful, buildable gloss with plenty of shine. I'm wearing it on its own here, which just shows you how pigmented it is once you've piled on a couple of coats, but they're designed to compliment the Deluxe Lipsticks, which I imagine would give an even more intense result. There is a very slight stickiness to this product, but it's still comfortable to wear and isn't drying at all, probably due to the Vitamin E it contains. It also lasts reasonably well, although you'll probably need to reapply after a meal or after four to five hours of wear. All in all it's a lovely lip gloss with a really nice finish.

And here's the finished look! I love the idea of this makeup on a warm summer evening, sitting at a little restaurant somewhere by the Mediterranean... just need to book a holiday now!

  1. Loving this look and the range of products you've used to create it. I've sworn by Mac's 'Soft & Gentle' for years but I recently got Charlotte Tilbury's 'Bar of Gold' so I'm loving that for a nice glow at the moment! x

  8. The result looks great, you did an amazing job! I usually go for light pink lips and cheeks and I use green/brown eyeshadow. I like to wear lots of mascara to make my lashes as long as I can :)

  18. You look absolutely gorgeous, hun! That lip colour especially was just made for you! :) <3 I also really enjoyed reading about all the products you've used. I've had my eye on the Nude Tude palette for a while, as I truly love anything by TheBalm. <3 I love the shades in it, I'm currently using their Nude Dude which is quite similar, and absolutely lovely. Thanks for sharing this look with us babe, I adore posts like this! <3 <3
