My ‘everyday’ look from Napoleon Perdis


Two weeks ago I completed the ‘Paparazzi Ready’ course at the Napoleon Perdis Makeup Academy. You can read about my experience here.

One thing I wanted to get out of the course was to create an ‘everyday look’.  I like wearing makeup and wear it most days but sometimes I want to look like I’m not much wearing makeup at all.

I wanted neutral colours on the eyes, a little bit of colour on the cheeks and a pop of colour on the lips.  A look I could wear to the shops, to work or out with friends. Up until that course I think I did the same makeup look for every occasion and I was getting bored.


My Napoleon Perdis everyday look


too close?


How I created this look:

1. After you’ve done your usual daily routine including cleanser and moisturiser apply Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer using a foundation brush.

2. Then apply the Napoleon Perdis Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation

3. I had some dark circles to cover up which was easy to do using Napoleon Perdis Mighty Concealer Pen.

4. For blush I used the Amazon Jungle (Colour Disc).

5. I highlighted the cheek and brow bone using Skinny Dip (Colour Disc) then used Orange Sherbert (Colour Disc) over the lids.  In the socket I applied Espresso To Go (Colour Disc) and blended using a blending brush.

6. On the bottom of the eye (bellow the inner rim) I use Brown Sugar pencil set then using a small shadow brush I dabbed espresso to go over the top of the pencil to set.

7. To make the eyes pop I used Peepshow Madame Beyond Mascara

8. For the lips we used Devine Godess Lipstick, colour Harmonia for a little pop.
