CALL ME MAYBE; WEARABLE, EASY TO ACHIEVE STYLE!


I’m all about keeping things simple when it comes to makeup. Less is more and simplicity is definitely the key when it comes to looking young, effortless and carefree. In this story, I show you just how easy it is to get this look with a few key products and the right application techniques.

I’m really enjoying Becca Cosmetics Sheer Tint Lip Colour in Black Currant at the moment. This creamy stain looks and wears with complete ease. (See above image).

Pump up your lashes top and bottom Jane Birkin style, with Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Flare. Don’t be afraid to really layer this mascara as it builds beautifuly. Just be quick about it and don’t let it dry in between layers.

Keep your tan topped up all year round whilst keeping your skin looking and feeling hydrated. Dove Summer Glow Body Lotion has one of the most natural colours that I’ve tried and tested. *Tip; Apply this gradual tan after you shower, while your skin is still warm. It absorbs and blends more evenly over the skin.

For a two in one, lip and cheek stain you can’t go past Stila’s Convertible Colours. I used the colour Fuschia which I applied with my fingers on the apples of Gabby’s cheeks and lips.

You all should know by now how much I love a nude lip. Well I have just discovered a new favourite nude and it’s by Laura Mercier. Caramel is the colour and it’s part of the Créme Lip Colour range.

Kevin Murphy would have to be one of my favourite go-to hair brands when it comes to creating sexy, effortless undone hair and Hair Resort Spray is always at the top of my list. Spray it straight onto dry hair and scrunch or apply to tonged hair to give it a more worn, bed hair look. Either way this product is a winner and the smell will make you feel like you’re on a some tropical island. Pina Colada anyone?

If the occassion calls for a red lip try Revlon’s Just Bitten Lip Stain in Twilight. This two in one lip stain and balm will keep your lips looking and feeling good all night.

Jane Birkin eat your heart out, this cute sixties liquid lash looks hard but with the right product and applicator it’s as easy as it is cool. Illamasqua Precision Ink Pens are my secret weapon. There super fine pointy tips and quick drying liquid means you only need a flick of the wrist.*Tip; Apply loose powder over the area before to remove any moisture.

    Hey max, just wearing what foundation was used on Gabby in this editorial and how it gets that dewy sheen?

  3. max says:

    I mixed a little MAC Face & Body in with some Becca Shimmering Perfecter. I had also Preped Gabby’s skin with a very hydrating fluid to give her skin that extra glowy bling since the MAC F&B is so light. x MM

VICTORIA’S SECRET LIPS FOR LIFE


No need to get your lips surgically enhanced to achieve that famous “Victoria’s Secret” pout. Look closely at any one of the girls backstage – or even any red-carpet-ready celebrity for that matter – and you will see a carefully placed liner, framing their lips to enhance and exaggerate. So, how does one choose the right shade and perfect such a desirable pout without your own personal makeup artist? I’m glad you asked!
