For my first beauty blog I decided to review my new favourite make up line by Rosie Huntington-Whitely. I am obsessed with Rosie- she has great style and I have been a fan of her lingerie and sleepwear line for a while-so I knew her make up collection would not disappoint. Her line can be bought at Marks and Spencer’s and it’s not too pricey for the great quality. The collection comes in beautiful rose gold packaging, so it looks fab in your make up bag! The make up line is created for “women on the go” so it’s great for me as a student when I am rushing to get to class in the morning. It is a very natural collection, with lots of neutral colours- which I love! I created the below look on friday for a night out with my girlfriends. I used Rosie’s ‘Insta Lash’ mascara, the ‘I Feel Like A Million Dollars’ eyeshadow palette and the ‘Silk Rose’ lipstick.
First up I used the eyeshadow palette. The colours on this palette are so pretty and glamorous. I started by filling in the inner corner of my eyelid with the top right colour and worked my way into the middle of my eyelid where I used the top left colour to fill in the second half of my eyelid out towards the outer corner. I then filled in the outer corner of my eyelid with the darkest colour on the bottom left and then used my fingers to blend all three colours together. A tip I got from reading about Rosie HW’s make up routine was that using your fingers to blend make up is a really great alternative to brushes as you can actually feel the products yourself. I used the bottom right colour to highlight the inner corner of my eyelid and under my eyebrow. This colour is a great highlighter and really brings out the eyes. I also added a bit of liquid eyeliner to give my eyes a bit more structure.
I followed up with the ‘Insta Lash’ mascara. I don’t know where I would be without mascara- it’s an everyday essential for me so I am quite picky with what mascara I use. The Insta Lash however does the job perfectly. It doesn’t give those dreaded clumpy eyelashes which is a bonus and it applies brilliantly. Always remember to curl your eyelashes before applying mascara as it makes such a difference! I have been without an eyelash curler as I lost mine last week and I have noticed how lifeless my eyelashes have looked without it.
Finally I used the ‘Silk Rose’ lipstick which is hands down my new favourite product. The colour is so classic and can be worn both during the day time and evening time. Before applying I lined my lips with a lipliner that was a similar colour from No7 and as I was heading out for the night, I wanted the colour to last so I filled in the rest of my lips with the liner to almost create a base layer. The lipstick applies so smoothly and easily. I highly recommend it!
I also wanted to mention how amazing the Rosie for Autograph perfume is. I bought this perfume last year and have been using it since. It’s such a beautiful, fresh scent and I have had so many compliments on it. It’s not too expensive and definitely worth a try!
