Summer Makeup 🌞

Hi everybody,

For this blog post I’ve decided to put together some of the best summer makeup looks. If you want to have a look at some easy looks that don’t require too much hassle here are a few I’ve put together.

For my first look I decided that I would create a bright, yet natural look that will be perfect for everyday and holidays. All you need is bright red lips and winged eyeliner on white and brown eyeshadow.

image

For the next look I chose to have a light brown/gold eyeshadow. This is a very natural eye makeup look and if you want little hassle when creating a makeup look, then this would be good for you. Combining it with light pink lips, completes a summer makeup look.

image

For the next makeup look I decided to create an evening look, that would be perfect for going out and give a smokey eye effect. For this I used black eyeshadow, black gel eyeliner and black eyeshadow pencil with deep red lips.

image

For the final look for summer I created a purple and blue eye look, so that your eyes look bright and vibrant. This look makes your eyes pop and combined with a nude lip colour, brings attention to your eyes making them stand out.

Hope this has helped to give you some more makeup ideas for summer!!!

Stay awesome 😉

Red Eyeshadow!!!

Hi everybody,

For this post I wanted to do a step by step for red eyeshadow. This eyeshadow shade would be perfect for going out or even prom, with the right dress!!

For this design I looked at many different styles and then with the colours I have, I created this look.

Now before every look I prep my eye using the maybelline Baby Skin primer and follow that with foundation and concealer. I use the Bare Minerals lightest concealer and Rimmel London ivory foundation.

On to the fun part, when creating this look I decided to use the most natural colour that would be a base for the eyeshadow. I chose an off white, browny colour but anything similar will do.
image

From there you want to now add the red, which will help when blending and adding in darker shades. I decided to use a red lip crayon by Colour Institute. This is because I didn’t have any bright enough reds, but you can use whatever reds you have to create this look.

image

You want to create a think red line that will go just above the crease on your eye and then underneath on your lower lash line. Don’t worry if it’s too much red you will be blending it out which will soften the colour.

Now you will want to take a slightly darker red and blend that into the crease and above, as well as taking a little bit underneath the eye. You’ll want to blend it well and make sure to blend out the other red with it. I used a fluffy brush for this as it blends the best.
image

After this I now add deeper reds/purples to create a smokey red effect. I decided to blend in two different colours to make it darker. I kept the same brush which was firm and fluffy when combining the two colours. I then blended them in the corner of my eye and slightly bringing it across.
image

After muh blending and adding a few layers of colour, I then moved onto adding a golden center to my eye. This will really make the eyeshadow stand out and will blend well together. I really like this colour as it is so glittery!!
image

Now after adding the gold eyeshadow and blending it with the rest of the colours, I will now add a much lighter eyeshadow toward the inner part of the eye.
image

After adding the silvery eyeshadow, I now add my black eyeliner as one of the finishing touches. I use gel eyeliner in Noir Black by Maybelline. Just add a simple flick to the edge of the eye and line all around the top and the water line. You’ll want the line to be quite thick but not covering too much of your eye, so that you can still see the eyeshadow.
image

Then just add mascara and if you want false eyelashes, there you have it a dramatic red and gold eyeshadow look!!

image

Perfect for going out or maybe you want to experiment yourself with different colours, if it’s your prom here’s a good idea to get an eye catching eyeshadow!!!
image

Hope you liked this idea and give it a go yourself. You don’t have to use the same products, anything that is similar will work too!!! Leave a comment if you want to see something else and let me know what you think or if you have tried it yourself.

Stay awesome!!!!! 😉

Spring Blogging

Hi everyone,

I realise it has been a really long time since my last blog and I apologise for it being so long. The reason it’s been so long is because I had no idea what to write and I’ve had so much college work.

But I’m back! Now for ages I have been looking at the different techniques on how to apply makeup, as well as what type of makeup is best for applying. I have found that there are so many techniques, from using tape to get makeup even, to using special brushes that will get your look spot on.

Now everybody is different with these types of techniques, some will work and others, well not so much. When I looked at these techniques I wanted the easiest and simplest way to do them. I am going to share this with you all and hopefully you’ll find it easier too.

My first lot of techniques are going to be for eye makeup, but there will be more for face and if you have any suggestions on what you might like to see comment below or if you like or don’t like just let me know.

Now with every technique I have found that priming your face it definitely what you must do for the best looks and it does help protect your skin. The primer I use is by Maybelline New York and is called Baby Skin, which is an instant pore eraser but is a good lightweight primer that makes you skin smooth.

image

I apply only a small amount on my eyelid and around my eye to make it appear smoother. My makeup will also go on nicely as well.

image

I then apply concealer on and around my eye, which is by Bare Minerals and is part of their Ready to go kit. This is really good as it is a palette of all the key makeup, such as foundation, bronzer and concealer. I only use a little concealer as too much will make my eye heavy my makeup won’t blend as well.

image

Now onto the eyeshadow part, I love doing this and experimenting with colours. I’m going to do a simple smokey eye look that will be natural and more for day makeup. Now the palette I’m using is by LaRoc and is the beginners collection, which has 120 natural eyeshadow tones.

I bought this off amazon along with the brushes I’m going to be using. I found that these are amazing to use and I really do think they are worth checking out.

Now I am going to apply the first layer, with a medium soze brush. You don’t want the brush to be too big or too small and then from there you want a light colour. I’m using a very light brown which is a little glittery, but you can use a matte light brown as well.
image

image

Next I’m going to take a smaller brush and just above my eyelid I’m going to apply a darker shade. For this im using a matte brown colour, as this will be better for creating a dark line, which we can then blend. You also want to take the brush and move it from the outer corner to roughly three quaters. So not too close to the inner corner of your eye. This creates a brown line that can then be blended.
image

You will want to take a fluffy brush now and blend the line down towards your eyelid, but not too much. Just lightly and also you’ll want your eye to stand out more by doing this. If you feel that maybe its too light now, simply go back over the eye using the smaller brush and same brown colour and very lightly apply the colour to the same place.
image

Now from there you want to add a very dark brown, which can be matte or glittery depending on what you want it to look like. I’m going to be using a glittery, dark brown that is darker than before. I am also going to use a slightly bigger brush than before, but not as big as the first brush I used.
image

I will then apply the shade to the outer corner of my eye and move towards the inner corner but leave space for the lighter shade so that you can see the change in colour. I will also use the fluffy brush again to blend the colours together and give a smokey effect.

For extra effect I will also use the same dark, glittery brown and underline the eye using this colour.
image

Also I’m going to use a brown eyeliner pencil to keep the makeup looking natural. I use the Double Wear eye pencil by Estēe Lauder, which is really good.

image

Now you could stop here and apply mascara, but I am going to apply a little wing to finish off the look. Now I am going to use Maybelline New York, Lasting Drama Gel eyeliner in Noir Black. I really love this eyeliner as it is really easy to use and is great for defining your look. This also comes with a 2 in 1 brush, which means you can smudge as well as create your wing.

image

Now I will also do a step by step for how to do wing eyeliner soon. But for now I will give a brief idea of my winged eyeliner. Now after drawing on a wing, if you wanted, add mascara after curling your eyelashes. The mascara I use is by Estēe Lauder and is Sumptuous Extreme mascara. This is great for making your eye lashes appear bigger and longer.

There you have it a smokey eye look!!
Hope this was easy for you to follow and please let me know if you liked it or not and leave a comment for a look you would like me to do.

Stay Awesome!!! 😉

Trick or Treat

Hi everyone,

Now I bet most of you will be excited for Halloween, which is tomorrow!! I enjoy this time of the year as the leaves are just falling of the trees and turning orange, yellow and red it’s amazing.  But of course I love Halloween whether it’s the trick or treating around neighbourhood, or going to Halloween parties or even staying at home and having your own mini party of eating sweet treats and  watching movies. I think all three are great!

There will also be some last minute buying for pumpkins, food, decorations and even costumes. I luckily finished getting my last pieces for my costume yesterday, but if your still looking sometimes little things can make a great outfit, especially fake blood.

Now in my previous blog I mentioned I would be going as a zombie Princess Peach so I have focused a lot on finding out the best zombie looking makeup that would be perfect. For my ideas I turned to pinterest as that has the most creative ideas for everyone.  I also know that I needed to make it look gory.

Here’s my gory hand makeup attempt.

There are some great tutorials on pinterest for scary makeup ideas. But here are some ideas I found that really let’s you play with makeup and are super easy to do if you want to only use makeup.

Fuller lips

Hi everyone,

I have been noticing that everybody recently have been changing their lips to look much more fuller and also making them appear ombre. Now I know Kylie Jenner is kinda the whole reason behind this and there is so many ways you can make your lips look fuller.

Kylie Jenner fuller lips and makeup.

This is my attempt in more neutral colours, the lighting not too great I can say though they didn’t turn out too bad and did look fuller. I followed a simple tips pin from pinterest to help me get started.

image

From pinterest.

I found this really useful and does help you to get fuller lips. I used my MaxFactor lip liner which is in the colour blush and Sally girl lipstick in the colour cuddle, that is in a pinky colour. It’s great for day makeup and once you know how to get fuller lips you can do it with any of your lip liners and lipsticks.

I also decided to experiment with other colours and designs including trying out ombre techniques.

image

I different colours of lipstick and this golden colour is so cool and very shiny, I wore it with my prom dress a few years ago and I still love it now. This colour is called Solid Gold and is from Nina Ultra Pro, they do some great lipsticks that really look amazing on.

image

I also tried this purple colour, which doesn’t look as deep on camera but does in person. This is great for the fall weather as it goes with the red eyeshadow. I also think that as it is coming up to Halloween would go create with a costume. This lipstick is by Estee Lauder and is called Wicked Wine.

image

This was my red lipstick which I think looks really bright and vibrant, I love this colour and is really shiny on. This lipstick is called Scarlet and is by P.S. Love… and is my favourite.

I also decided to experiment a little with a different red lipstick, this one is another by Nine Ultra Pro and is called Radiant Red. It is a stunning colour but I decided to give this a twist and added golden glitter to the bottom lip for a golden shine.

image

It shines a lot in the light and is great if you’re also experimenting like me and what something interesting to wear when you go out.

image

I did also experiment with an ombre look and attempted to make my lips a deep purple on the outside and a red on the inside.

I am also putting designs that you may want to try out that I have seen online. You should give it a go and take some stunning pictures with your experimental lip designs.

image

These images are from pinterest, if you want more designs that’s a great app for you to check out if you don’t already have it.

Hope you liked my lip designs and experimental lips, stay awesome!!
