The Ultimate Beauty Icon| Angelina Jolie #HoFBeautyAmbassador ❤


If I make a fool of myself, who cares? I'm not frightened by anyone's perception of me - Angelina Jolie

Hi Lovelies!
Today's post is going to be slightly different and I'm sure excited to announce that I'm entering the #HoFBeautyAmbassador competition. I've been lucky to work with House of Fraser on a few occasions and this is such a fantastic opportunity for a make-up and beauty lover like myself. I've had a pretty tough few weeks, so the thought of sitting down to the blog and talking about my favourite beauty icons sounded like a real treat! I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section down below. Don't forget you can also use my Social icons to the right hand side if you would like to get in contact with me a little quicker :)

I remember when I left school in 2010 we had our year book made and  a few of us had look alikes! Mine happened to be Angelina Jolie when she was Lara Croft in toomb-raider. Now to me that was a HUGE compliment even though I didn't and still don't think I look anything like her (I wish) However, compliments like that should be appreciated ha! Angelina Jolie is known as one of the worlds most beautiful women and I've always had a fascination with her flawless skin, sultry charm and of course her beautiful lips. Not only that, but she is a strong woman and I do admire her majestic persona. I'm sure you know I LOVE me some make-up, but at the same time I've never really felt like I've suited dramatic looks or super defined eyes. That's why I love Angelina and pretty much refer to her on all of my make-up look searches Pinterest and Youtube. I love how simple but flawless all of her make-up looks are and I also adore the way she adds a beautiful red lip every now and then! I'm pretty sure I will do my make-up exactly like hers for my wedding day... whenever that may be! I'm actually just like WOW - She really is a classic beauty, at least in my opinion. Below I have included some of my favourite products that I use to create an Angelina Jolie inspired look.



Chanel Les Beiges All-in-one Healthy Glow Fluid
I'm a true believer that it's all about the base and for me the best way to achieve flawless looking skin is by using a healthy fluid like a tinted moisturiser under my foundation. The Chanel Les Beiges Fluid doesn't necessarily provide coverage, but it really evens and smooths out the skin for the rest of your make-up. It's a foolproof way to achieving gorgeous glowing skin like Angie has!

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer
After applying my Chanel Les Beiges Fluid I take a small pump of the YSL Touche Eclt Blur Primer and just gently smooth it into the area's where my pores are most noticeable. It does a fantastic job of smoothing them out, plus it's part of the adored Touche Eclat range so it does wonders for brightening and improving the overall look of the complexion.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation B20
Angelina's complexion is the kind of complexion you dream of! It looks 'Filmstar Esq' with or without make-up. I like to use my favourite Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation to give me a flawless complexion, which feels light and breathable at the same time.

Clarins Instant Concealer 'Light'
This concealer is absolutely perfect for so many reasons! Not only does it conceal under eye problems and blemishes... It's also super fluid and light, which makes it great for contouring too. I tend to apply it with my fingers making it into a triangle shape to help conceal an imperfections.

Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel
The Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel is a key product when I'm looking to create and Angelina esq look, as her cheekbones are just to die for. I mean seriously they need appreciation. The Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel bronzer is a great way to achieve great definition and the cream texture is really easy to work with too!

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow
The film star bronze and glow really is one of the most perfect duo's I have ever come across and also very fitting for creating a beautiful filmstar look like Angelina has. I always use the highlighter which is a super pigmented champagne highlighter just above my cheekbones, down my nose and just over my cupids bow. I also use a touch of the bronzer to strenghten my contour if I want a little more definition.

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush 'Love Glow'
From what I've noticed Angelina tends to go for quite a dusky pink tone when it comes to blush and this one is fantastic for adding just a tiny pop of colour to compliment the look, but at the same time not go over the top!

Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner & Charlotte Tilbury Classic 'Audrey' Pencil
Personally I have never been able to achieve super dramatic eye looks and that is why I love Angelina's look so much! I really feel that I can identify with the looks she likes to wear and it makes it super fun for me to experiment. Angie is famous for her cat-eye and subtle smokey eye and these two products are a fantastic way to achieve a simple but defined look. I tend to use the maybelline liquid liner for a precise cat eye and the Charlotte Tilbury pencil to gently smoke it out.

Charlotte Tilbury Super Fat Lashes Mascara
Angelina's lashes are always beauttifully fanned out and again very natural looking. The Charlotte Tilbury Super Fat Lashes Mascara is a really good way to achieve full lashes with zero clumps!

Benefit Gimmie Brow
I love to keep my brows natural, so there is no better product than Benefit's Gimmie Brow for naturally defined and volumised brows. I've also noticed that Angelina has very natural looking brows!

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick 'Bitch Perfect'
What better way to finish off a look than with a lipstick called 'Bitch Perfect' As well as her natural beauty Angelina is also well known for her 'bad ass' film roles, so I feel that this lipstick is very fitting. I also find the formula quite volumising and my lips always feel super plump when wearing this lipstick. I also use a little bit of lip liner to just add a little extra depth! (I wish I had Angie's lips) 

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder
To finish off I like to add a dusting of the Chanel Les Beiges Powder just to keep my T-zone under control.
Overall
I hope you have enjoyed hearing about what products I like to use to create an 'Angelina Jolie' esq look. It's a pretty put together look, but all the products used are very natural and glowy (without being shiny) It's a real foolproof look for me, as well as appearing natural too.
