Let’s get a little bit cheeky today and create this uplifting look with a little bit of help from CHEEKY Cosmetics. CHEEKY is the new brand on the block promising to re-write the beauty rules. Their products are well priced and contain some fabulous ingredients. They are created for those who want to stay one step ahead when it comes to style.
I’m always very excited to see a new brand emerging on the beauty market. No matter how many brands and products there are out there, the arrival of something new means new ways of thinking about beauty. So, when I got my hands on some of CHEEKY products, I decided to have a play and create a bit more of a ‘CHEEKY’ look than what I would usually go for.
For this look I’ve only used 4 CHEEKY items; two skin and two hair-styling products.
To recreate this look you’ll need the CHEEKY ’Kiss ’n’ Tell’ Lip and Cheek stain in posy rosey, and ‘Freeze Frame’ Makeup Setting Spray.
To style your hair use ‘Pump It’- Hair Plumping Powder and ‘Ruffle My Feathers‘ – Hair Shine Spray.
Start with a foundation base to make your skin look flawless. For the eyes choose natural shades, but don’t be afraid to frame your eyes a bit more with some darker eyeliner or black eyeshadow applied along your lash line. This will add drama to the overall look.
Start with a pop of colour on your cheeks. I love using brushes to work with cream blushers, it makes it easy to distribute product evenly on both cheeks. However I always finish off by gently patting the blusher with my fingertips, this way it will look like it’s your skin rather than makeup.
Moving onto your lips; with a lip brush, or your fingertips, apply the ’Kiss ’n’ Tell’ Cheek and Lip Stain. This product is just stunning on the lips, not only does it looks daring, but it actually doesn’t come off when kissing – of course I’ve tested it!
Next step is your Freeze Frame – Makeup Setting Spray. I’m going to share a makeup artist’s secret with you; spritz your face just after you’ve applied your foundation and pat gently with a flat foundation brush. It’s a trick that makes even full coverage foundation look like your second skin. Follow with colour cosmetics on top and then give it one more spritz, just to set your makeup.
Apply ’Pump It’- Plumping Powder into the roots of your hair, right at the crown of your head; this will add volume and body to the top part of your hair.
Next pour some ‘Pump It’ powder onto your hands and rub into the mid- length and ends of your hair. This will add body and help your hair to stay ruffled all day long.
If your hair is straight and sleek like mine, I suggest you add a few curls, just on the very top layer of your hair, and perhaps a couple on the bottom. You’ll find it’s much easier to create this cool messy style when you have a bit more body in your hair.
Once you’ve created your curls, separate them with your hands. Then just mess up your hair a little bit more, adding a tiny little bit of the ‘Pump It’ ‘- Plumping Powder if you feel like you need extra volume.
Finish off the look by spritzing ‘Ruffle My Feathers’ - Hair Shine Spray. to give your ‘feathers’ some serious shine and voila!
