The Matte Beauty Edit

September 18, 2016

Hellooooo! How’s your weekend been? I was looking through my blog the other day and realized that I hadn’t done many beauty posts recently, my last one being my ‘ Travel Friendly Makeup‘ post. I feel like the whole matte lips look has been trending for some time now and the simple matte eye look too. So I thought that I would do a little beauty edit, based around the ongoing matte trend. I know that sometimes shimmery eyeshadows can be quite daunting so matte shadows are a great alternate option. Since Autumn is just around the corner ( oooohh I’m getting excited! ) I thought that a nice little beauty roundup would be the perfect transitional post. I will be showing you things matte so I hope you find a little something that takes your fancy!

EYES


Staring off with the eyes. I absolutely adore matte eyeshadows, I feel like they are so universal and easy to work with. You could just simply blend a few matte shadows into your crease and already have so much dimension added to your look. Some of my ultimate faves include:

LIPS


Now of course for lips you’ll probably expect me to talk all about matte liquid lipsticks, but as it goes I’m still yet to jump aboard the whole matte liquid lipstick trend, but there are quite a few lippies that I’ve had my eye on for some time that look absolutely GORGEOUS!

FACE


For the face there are so many products that I love, from powders to bronzers and even a few base products. Though when I looked through my collection, these were the ones that really stuck out for me:

  • Matte Perfect Foundation – MUA
  • Mat Velvet Foundation – Make Up Forever
  • Pressed Powder – MUA

 

So I hope that you enjoyed reading! Let me know what are some of your favourite matte beauty items and if you have any recommendations be sure to let me know and I shall be back with you again next week!

end

 

 

 

 

P.S: I was just wondering, do you prefer matte eyeshadows or shimmers? I feel like matte shadows are more wearable for me personally but I do love to incorporate some shimmers every now and then too. Byesies! Xxxx

They really are great, they are a little bit expensive but totally worth it because of the amazing quality.

Sin is such a gorgeous autumnal colour. I think I will check out the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks soon since I’ve heard some nice things about them.

Revolution shadows are just such amazing quality and really high pigmentation too.

I’ve heard so many good things about the Make Up forever foundation- I’ll have to give it a try. I currently use a NYX one and I’m so impressed, especially for the price. The Body Shop one is also really good too but I bit more expensive. Great post lovely. X

Thank you! Ohh I may have to try out the NYX one! As it goes, I’ve actually had my eye on the body shop foundation since it’s so full coverage and smooth.

I am a huge matte person! I can’t seem to get shimmer right so just stick with the matte aha, but I don’t mind, and it’s perfect now we’re coming into autumn! These all look so nice, love the look of the face and eye products! Wonderful post lovely!

This is such a great post! I usually wear shimmery eyeshadow but I also have matte which I normally use as more of a base! 🙂

Thank you! I love using matte shadows as bases too, I find they help shimmers blend out so much easier.

This is a great post! I’m not a massive fan of matte eyeshadow shades but they do all look great! I haven’t had a change to try out the colour pop matte shades, I begrudge paying for the super expensive shipping to England! But I am a massive fan of the mac matte lipsticks, I also really love the shade sin as well.

Thank you Kayleigh! The shipping for Colourpop really does put me off aswell. I love the matte lipsticks by MAC too.
