Makeup must haves for Autumn/winter 16 

Following on from yesterday’s post… I thought I would share some of the products that were given to me at the seventeen bloggers network event. 

It was all about staying on trend for Autumn/winter makeup with seventeen. We were able to play around with some new and old seventeen products and had some beauty chats to keep us up to date with the upcoming beauty trends for this season. 

Vanessa Guallar talked us through how to create the ‘Sci-fi’ makeup look which is based on a timeless and classic natural makeup look with a futuristic twist. Blending highlighter anywhere possible to give a shimmery, metallic sheen over the skin. I absolutely loved this look and can’t wait to re create it at home! For the look Vanessa used these three seventeen products;

Seventeen skin wow! Highlighter (£5.99) – this is a 3 in 1 product. You can use it to prime your face, mix it in with your foundation for a healthy glow or add on top of your foundation as you would with a normal highlighter. Vanessa used this as a highlighter along the cheekbones, eyelids, cuspids bow, bridge of the nose and chin. First impressions of this is very good… I have fallen in love with this highlighter, it is the absolute perfect shade of highlight and blends like a dream. A little goes a long way. 

Seventeen skin wow! Concealer (£4.99) – this reminds me of the YSL Touche Éclat concealer in terms of the packaging and they style of the product. It will definitely look goregous in your makeup bag and it’s one of the cheapest concealers out there. Vanessa used this to touch up the makeup at the end, cover any imperfections and under the eyes to brighten. I like the brightening effect this has, it’s definitely a good one for under the eyes. 

Seventeen brows that! Brow kit (£5.99) – this is such a good brow kit with everything you need (apart from a spoolie) and has a perfect sized mirror. Vanessa gave us all a tip that by doing your brows it pulls a look together and also helps to make you look younger. I have been using the brow kit every day since getting it and have to say have been loving my brow game! It’s the perfect shade of brown, it works into the browsperfectly and holds in place all day!  

All of these products are under £10 each and honestly such great quality. Make sure you are keeping up with the makeup trends with seventeen! And keep your eyes peeled for a post of me recreating a makeup look from the event  and more on trends for Autumn winter soon!
