This is the story of a modern city woman; she is elegant, roaming the buzzing streets of Paris, she is cosmopolitan, a true traveler living between big cities, and she is natural in her purest form. For my second collaboration with Lin&Lo Mineral Makeup (see our first one here), I wanted to take you on a journey of transformation and of beauty, which is the perfect mix for the contemporary big city girl like myself.
Lin&Lo is a refreshing, effortless and versatile beauty brand that is all about the modern day woman who is constantly on-the-go. She is chic and subtle during the day, and fierce in the evenings. This look was shot in the midst of one of the busiest times of the season: Paris Fashion Week! To head to the shows, which that day was Leonard Paris at the Grand Palais, I wanted a fresh, light and feminine look to contrast with a beautiful black jumpsuit. Beauty to me is about experimentation, but it also about your true self and most importantly feeling confident in your own skin! I love trying new makeup looks and Alina, Founder of Lin&Lo Mineral Makeup, has given me a soft and effortless look to attend the shows!
FIRST LOOK: Soft Seduction and Natural Elegance
The first makeup look we went for was pure and natural, perfect for attending the shows in the day and with just enough elegance to catch some attention! To give my skin a nice and glowing complexion we went for the Moisturising Liquid Foundation with the Sun Tan Bronzer in shade ‘Natural’ on top. I wanted the focus to be on the eyes, so we went for a shimmering smoky eye using the Mineral Eyeshadow Palette in shade ‘Pearl’, which consists of gorgeous tones ranging from purple, blue and black hues. Top it off with two coats of Instant Love Mascara, and you’ll have gorgeous big and beautiful eyes! To finish off the look and give it a really feminine, soft vibe, we went for a neutral peachy-pink Matte lipstick in shade ‘Sandy’ – and I was ready to go!
SECOND LOOK: Glamour and Burgundy Power
Something I love to do quite often, especially during Fashion Week when I’m constantly heading from one event to the next, is to change up my makeup for a completely different look. Lin&Lo products are so versatile and natural that it is really easy to go from a day to evening look by simply refreshing your makeup and switching up the lipstick shade to completely transform the look! For the evening I wanted a more dramatic look, so using all the same products we just needed to find a bold lipstick color that really stood out – and we found it using the Matte lipstick from Lin&Lo in shade ‘Rubis’; an elegant mix of red and burgundy. I put on a pair of sunglasses to match, and there you have your evening look!
I hope you enjoyed these two makeup looks, and my tips on how you can easily change it up from day to night with only a few simple steps! All of the items used are linked below, and you can check out more of the Lin&Lo range on their site www.linandlo.co.uk!
