Makeup of the day

Makeup Of The Day!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

YES! Finally a makeup of the day, oh how I’ve missed these! *like this post to see more!!* 🙂

So, yesterday I decided to have a play around with my eyeshadows, well my beloved Sleek Au Naturel palette. The look I came up with was quite simple looking, but I LOVE it. I created matte eyes, with a flawless base & nude lips!

To be honest, I’ve been obsessed with matte eyeshadow over shimmers recently. It looks more subtle & wearable for everyday wear, especially as I wasn’t going anywhere fancy, just running some errands.

Right, enough babbling, lets get on with the look…

wpid-20150311_105957.jpg

I didn’t picture each step, it is that simple, there’s a few colours used but only with a light hand, as I wanted a subtle matte contour to the eye!

Firstly, I put a wash of the colour ‘nougat’ all over the lids, right upto the brow bone, this just gives an even colour to work on top; making blending so much easier!

I then went in with ‘toast’ in my crease as the transition shade. This just gives darker colours a transition, making blending (yes, you’ll see the key to this look is blending!!) effortless. I use windscreen wiper motions to blend the colour into my crease, I blend this colour to the point where my eyebrows start (shown below).

To deepen up the crease a bit I went in with a mix of ‘nubuck’ and ‘cappuccino’ over the top of ‘toast, I only used a small amount at a time & built up the intensity until I got to the desired effect. With this look (& most other eyeshadow work) blending is the absolute key, also building up colour is essential, as the end look will look far more seamless than if you try blend a ton of colour from the get go!

Once you’ve reached your desired intensity I like to go in with an even darker shade; just to give that extra definition to the very outer corners. To do this I used ‘regal’, this is my favourite shade in this palette, it makes my green eyes POP! I place a small amount right in the outer corner & blend it into the crease, but not all the way into the inner corners like the other colours, only about half way!

wpid-20150311_105948.jpg

To finish the look off I but ‘regal’ along the lower lashline & added a generous amount of my Kiko mascara (comment if you’d like to see a review!!) to my top & bottom lashes. This just defines the lashes & balances the bottom of the eyes with the top half.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Beauty Blogger Of The Month Award!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

OH MY WORD. Am I dreaming? I’ve only gone & been nominated for the beauty blogger of the month award! This award was created by the beautiful Cecilia of ‘ceciliascorner’, Cecilia also nominated me for this amazing award & for that I cannot thank her enough. So a MASSIVE THANK YOU to Cecilia for nominating me, it really does mean a lot. Oh, and beauties if you’re not following her go FOLLOW her now her blog is fab!! 🙂

1. Where does your makeup inspiration come from?

Since I can remember I’ve always had a passion for makeup. For years I’ve been obsessed with watching beauty gurus on YouTube. Also, in my early teenage years I had quite bad spots & problematic skin, so makeup was a sort of comfort blanket for me!

2. What are 3 of your makeup Holy Grail products you cannot live without?

  • Some sort of base, if my skin is being good I may only wear concealer & powder, but if I’m having a bad skin day I’ll wear foundation.
  • Mascara, ALWAYS! Cannot live without it, I look so naked & squinty eyed without it (haha!)
  • Bold lippy, it just brightens your look & makes you look more polished & done.

3. What is your makeup signature look which you have on most of the time?

Big lashes (lashings of mascara, no falsies here!!), bold lipstick & contoured face.

4. Let us know your favorite makeup brands?

Maybelline, Revlon, Benefit, Rimmel & Sleek.

5. Your ultimate makeup pet peeve?

When people don’t blend eyeshadow properly or you can see the tightline of the eye lashes when wearing black liquid/gel liner.

6. You’ve heard about all the hype on this makeup item, bought it, tried it and don’t understand what all the fuss is about…Name that product!

Rimmel London’s Kate Lipstick collection, I really don’t get the hype. I hate the lipstick I bought from that collection, it has put me off Rimmel lipsticks altogether!

7. Concealer OR foundation ONLY for the rest of your life. Choose one and tell us the reason!

Concealer. If I could only have Collection’s Lasting Perfection Concealer for the rest of my life I’d be happy. I can usually get away with just applying this under my eyes & on any blemishes, powdering & I’m good to go! – it’s a miracle product.

My nominations

1. BeautifulBreakable

2. HenryFaceBeauty

3. NinaRossBeauty

4. Plus+Beauty

5. PsMeganElizabeth

6. RandomnessILike

7. IAmSereneL

So that’s the end of this Award post. Once again, THANK YOU to Cecilia for nominating me, to know I’ve got such amazing readers that love my posts means so much to me you wouldn’t even believe! ❤
