#BeautiesOnFire Week One | Classic Beauty

Remember last week when I posted about a new collaboration I'm taking part in, #BeautiesOnFire? Well, it's time for our first posts! The theme chosen for our first "proper" week was Classic Beauty. You can check out Elisabeth's post here for the link-up with all the other #BeautiesOnFire, and read on below to see my take on the theme!
#BeautiesOnFire-Week-One
For me, classic beauty means porcelain skin, black eyeliner and the timeless red lip - not a look I wear very often, so I decided to keep things pretty simple! I kept my skin pretty basic with just foundation and concealer, opting to skip blusher and highlighter so that the focus could be on my features. I then whacked a thick layer of lipbalm on to prep my lips.
I've filled in my brows because to me, a strong brow is so important to frame the face. I then went for a slightly winged liner using a dampened angled brush and a black powder eyeshadow, with a tiny bit of kohl blended under my lower lashline too. Plenty of mascara finished off my eyes (Chanel, darling!), and for my lips I tissued off the lipbalm before using a nude lipliner beneath a matte red lipstick.
#BeautiesOnFire-Classic-Beauty
Overall, I quite like the look I ended up with, but it's not one I see myself wearing on a regular basis. If anything, this has reminded me why I don't wear a statement lip very often - it really emphasises how wonky my lips are! What does "classic beauty" mean to you? Do you wear a "classic" look often? Remember you can find all the details of the #BeautiesOnFire collab in Elisabeth's post here, and check out the other posts on the Classic Beauty theme here!

  3. I love this look, your lips aren't wonky at all. I am hugely into the 'classic' look, but sometimes add some glitter eyeliner instead and wear a paler lip colour.

  6. I think this is a gorgeous classic look, you look fantastic! With my freckly face it doesn't really work for me, but perhaps I should try a nod towards it.

  15. I really love this look on you. I think the red lips actually make you look very doll like in a good way. If you ever need to get your way, play up that adorable card 100% girl! ;) I went blush free for this week's look too. But I'm never sure if it's because I like my other features or because I'm a little lazy unless I'm Trying to use up blush...
