Superdrug's Winter Wonderland Looks

Thursday, 24 October 2013

A little while ago I was approached by Superdrug to create some looks for their 3 for 2 Winter Wonderland feature. I've worked with Superdrug before and it was an absolute pleasure, so I was ecstatic to be asked again. You can find all the looks and the products used here, but I thought I would talk you through them on here as well! 

Barefaced Beauty
I was a tad apprehensive about creating this look as I hate how I look doing 'minimal', but I'm actually really pleased with how the look turned out. I really loved using the Bourjois Happy Light Primer* as it completely mattified my skin, and I was amazed with the coverage the Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation* achieved. I really love this foundation and will be popping up a full review very soon. Finally, I finished off the look with a bit of L'oreal's Color Riche Julianne Rosewood Lipstick in Beige*, which is a really pretty neutral shade.

Bold Brows
I really enjoyed doing this look as I wanted to go for really in-your-face Cara-esque brows. I usually do my brows fairly bold anyway but I took things up a notch here and really made them stand out. I was taken aback at how much it changed my overall appearance and I actually really love it. The Beauty UK Hi-Brow Kit* is amazing (another great dupe for the HD Brow Palette), and I finished it off with a slick of Maybelline's Gel Liner* and Rimmel's Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara*, both of which I'm really impressed with. The liner is something I've always wanted to try and I love it. 

Definitely my favourite look, Oxblood is really on trend at the minute and I really like how much it differs from my usual 'pretty pink' palette. I used the Vintage Romance Palette from Sleek* and it is seriously stunning. I was going to opt for the usual neutrals but I thought I'd really embraced the purple oxblood shade and go all-out, and I really like how this smokey eye turned out. I also absolutely adore the lipstick I used for this look, Collection's Gothic Glam lippy in Scorned*. It's a seriously amazing colour that would be ideal for Halloween. I painted my nails using Gosh's Nail Lacquer in Frosted Purple*, which is the most amazing matte-glitter polish I have ever seen. 

Ice Maiden
I had so much fun creating this look. I wanted to channel the Snow Queen and I think I achieved the look I was going for! I used MUA's Luxe Glitter Palette in Rock Chick* to seriously glitter up the look, using it on my eyes and my lips for the ultimate Ice Queen factor. I used Revlon's Lash Potion Mascara* and finished off the look with Barry M's Textured Nail Paint in White Pearl*. This polish is so pretty and will be perfect for over the winter.
