Fabulous Mascara - Benefit's they're Real!
We already gave this product a shout out in our Latest In Beauty Box picks. Here you can go order a full size of 'they're Real' mascara, can fully recommend gives a really natural look. The more you layer the more extreme but one or two coats is really enough. If you're looking for a bit of added volume and length and that 'real' look rather than a set of falsies which isn't always the look you're after. After trying this recently this will be the go-to mascara and haven't heard any complaints from other users either. It's currently priced at £21.50 so at the higher end of the market but you'll quite possibly not use as much as usual in which case it's well worth a try.

Step By Step Makeup Cosmetics Guide
Step 1 To start off you want to prime your face.
Step 2 Next you want to put your foundation on, Nicki’s look here is more natural so you want a lightweight yet full coverage foundation. Make sure your foundation matches your skin tone to ensure your face looks as natural as possible.
Step 3 Begin to highlight, you can do this with a lighter shade concealer only go 1-2 shades lighter at the maximum. Firstly make a triangle shape under your eyes and colour it in, draw a line on your nose and a small amount on the chin. To blend this all in use a cosmetic sponge or beauty blender and dab until there are no harsh lines, make sure you fully blend it in.
Step 4 Now begin to Contour take a natural bronzer and apply to your cheekbones. When applying make a fishy pout face to make the application easier. Apply your bronzer with either a right-angled powder brush or a standard powder brush. The face is now done and it’s time to move on to the eyes. Nicki’s eyes are simply tanned colour on the outer corner fading into creams and whites on the inner corner with bold false lashes and a thin eyeliner.
Step 5 Apply a light brown to the whole lid next a cream/white to your brow bone for a highlight.
continue step 6 -10
Step 6 Try a tan brown eyeshadow, apply this to the outer corner and into the crease. We would apply this using a medium size eyeshadow brush and then blend out with a fluffy brush.
Step 7 Using a strong pigmented white apply to the inner corner to open up the eyes and then using a fluffy brush blend everything together and make sure there are no harsh lines.
Step 8 Add a liquid or gel liner apply a thin line along your lid. Nicki looks like she has tight lined (put eyeliner on top of waterline) this is optional.
Step 9 Apply false lashes. Nicki’s are pretty big, they start off small and gradually become huge on the outer corner. Then blend your lashes with the false lashes by applying mascara over the top. If you do not wish to use false lashes then go ahead and just use mascara we recommend Benefit they’re Real mascara or Maybelline’s the falsies volume express, in the colour black drama.
Step 10 Finally the lips, Nicki looks like she is wearing her own lipstick colour which is mac’s viva glam Nicki 1. This colour is just a pretty pink and looks super natural, the lipstick is great as it can be built to be intense or worn lightly as Nicki has. If you cannot get this mac product a good similar lipstick would be Maybelline’s colour sensational lipsticks in the shade pink lollipop.
PRIMER – a foundation primer aids in applying your foundation more evenly and with a nice smooth finish it also increases the longevity staying beautiful all day long.
Another tip use (men's) Nivea Post Shave Balm as a primer before make-up calming and cooling skin ridding of irritation they have a sensitive cream which is the one we used rub into skin it should feel a little tacky like a primer does and that is the finish that helps grab and keep your make-up in place everything stays smooth and glides into place and it's another inexpensive discovery we wanted to share with you. We first heard about his via youtube artist NIKKIE TUTORIALS who shared the tip after using as a moisturiser later realising her makeup had stayed in place for the whole day. It is believed the ingredient glycerine is what grabs the foundation and keeps it in place. We have tried it and love it too.
