Hey beauties, I hope you had a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend and enjoyed the springy weather we finally had in London, although I am not sure what you are supposed to call the season we are in, as it is the end of spring and we only had a handful of lovely springy days yet it is too cold to start calling it the summer, hey hoe! I just came across these images, and realised I totally forgot to do a blogpost on this look! This look was inspired by the Modern 'Baby Bardot' Makeup look Lisa Eldridge has done a tutorial on, if you want to see how she created the original look click here! I instagrammed a pic of this look and it was super exciting when Lisa Eldridge herself liked it!! I love Brigitte Bardot and her iconic make-up so of course I adore this look, it's perfect for the Spring and Summer!
So the products I have used on the Eyes: MAC Paint Pot in Nubile as a base, the lightest eyeshadow shade from the Chanel Les 4 Ombres palette in 42 Seduction all over the lid, MAC Wedge and Cork mixed just in the crease-line, Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in 01 Black, and Ardell Individual Lashes in medium length just in the middle and outside-corner. On the Lips: I have firstly lined Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Pencil in 08 Spice making sure to draw the line thickly and then blending the edges with a lip brush filling in the rest of the lips to get that gradual faded effect, and on top I applied my all time favourite matte nude lipstick, which is Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick in 001 Nude Attitude. This lipstick is super flattering, although it's nude it has that mildly detectable pearlescence to it which gives you that seductive Brigitte Bardot lip!
