Dewy vs. Matte Makeup Looks

Hello there my little product (mainly palette) hoarding beauties, (oh wait that’s me who has the palette obsession)!

Today I thought I’d try something a little different. Rather than comparing individual products and recommending my favourites, I’m going to compare entire looks! This is because you never know how a new lipstick or blush is going to look until it’s on your face with the rest of the products!

So it’s time to get comparing… Dewy or Matte?

A lot of people prefer a dewy look in the summer, but then on some skin types this might not work, equally matte looks can be quite drying on some people, so it’s all about finding the right balance of products for you! These are two fairly simple looks, no major eye or anything, just bog standard with a couple of new lip products!

Let’s get going…


Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid in Ivory: very light but buildable coverage, not great under eyes, but a nice finish.                                                                                                             Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Cool Medium: awesome, my favourite concealer EVER!                                                                                                                                      Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown: apply lightly for a lovely natural look.  17 Eyeshadow in Statuesque: apply all over the lid for a subtle shimmer, just enough to pick up the dewyness of your skin.                                                                                          Maybelline Falsies Waterproof Mascara: elegant seperated lashes for a simple lash look.   Sleek Blush in Rose Gold: perfect shimmer, a completely stunning colour and works nicely as a highlighter too.                                                                                                                 Clinique Chubby STick in 07 Super Strawberry: very moisturising for every day and add a little gloss to take you from day to night!

I give to you my DEWY LOOK:

Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse in Ivory: lovely consistensy, looks far more orange than it actually is so make sure you try before you buy, not great coverage, but fab for this sort of look.                                                                                                                                         Rimmel Stay Matte Concealer: not mad about this one, better over blemishes than under the eye as it has a balm in the middle to help heal blemishes.                                                Technic Eyeshadow Palette (brows) Top Right Colour: lovely for a very natural look but overall similar to the pencil.                                                                                                     MAC Paintpot in Layin’ Low: perfect for a matte look, as this primer stops any sort of shine on your lids and also keeps you makeup in place for an absolute age (ahem… night out essential)                                                                                                                                 Technic Eyeshadow (which seemingly has no name) all over the lids for a super natural look, showing off your no-shine lids to everyone!                                                                    Collection Extreme 24hr Felt Tip Liner: my favourite liquid liner as it’s so easy to apply for the perfect cat eye to give this super simple look a little something!                                       Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara: more voluminous than the falsies but similar in separating your lashes leaving you clump free.                                                                        Maybelline Dream Sun Triple Bronzing Powder in Blonde: lovely for a spot of contouring with three colours in one, also it smells like holiday!                                                               MUA Lipstick in Nectar: what can I say, I’m a coral convert. stunning colour that stays put, and all for £1!
