Makeup of the day

Monday MOTD: Stoplight Eye ❤

Hi beauties. 🌞

So I’ve been super super busy this week,  where has it gone? Time just seems to fly these days!!! I hope you are all well & haven’t missed me too much 😉

Due to my lack of posts I’m going to make sure I get back into the routine & create a blogging schedule. Don’t worry I’m still here. 🙂

Anyway, since it’s Monday I’ll be doing a Monday Makeup of the day (this is going to be a weekly thing!) ❤

So the other night I had a couple of hours free, so I decided to create a makeup look of the ‘Spotlight Eye’ trend. I really liked how it turned out;  so here it is…

Eyes
I started off by cleansing my skin, Iused a new product, Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Face Mask (review coming on Friday!). I then moisturised my face. To let that sink into the skin I decided to do my eyes before skin. 🙂

image

To even the skin tone on my eyes I used a bit of concealer. To set that in place I used the lightest shade in my Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette (all shadows used are from this palette!). To create a transition through my crease I used a medium toned brown as my transition shade!!

image

To add more definition I just kept building the intensity of the medium toned brown all throughout the crease, even the inner part of the eye. Just make sure you leave the centre of the lid nice and bright! Hence the name, spotlight eye. 🙂

image

I decided I wanted to deepen the look further, so using the darkest matte shade in the palette I blended this through the crease from inner corner to outer corner.
Remember. Blend blend blend!!!!
To brighten the centre I reapplied the lightest shade and a small amount of the lightest shimmery shade. Keep this in the very centre for that strong focus on the eye!

Makeup of the day

Smokey Liner Sort’a Day!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

The other day I experimented with a different liner look. Here’s what I came up with…

image

It may seem very simple, which to be honest it is, but this smokey black shadow liner is very effective & something I don’t do a lot. It’s an easy/quick alternative to an intense winged liner 🙂

image

To achieve this look I just smudged black liner into my upper lash line, to do this I used an angled liner brush then blended it upwards to smoke it out. It creates subtle definition to the lashes, which for an everyday look, is gorgeous!!

image

The red lipstick I used was Topshop Lips in Screen Siren. I adore this colour & have found myself reaching for this & beguiled (dark burgundy shade) a lot these past few months 🙂

Let me know if you’d like to see a makeup tutorial on this look & I’ll be quite happy to film it for you ♡

Lots of Love Natasha

Holiday snaps! ☼

Hi beauties. ☼

I know I haven’t been very active recently, sorry about that, but I’m back with those highly anticipated holiday snaps you guys wanted to see 🙂

As you know I went on holiday to Kavos, Greece (Kavos is in Corfu btw!) with my twin sister (beautifulbreakable) & bestie at the beginning of August. I asked whether you’d want to see any snaps, so here are some of my faves…

On the way to Kavos, who else finds the airplane journey exciting?

San Marina Hotel.We definitely chose the best hotel on the strip, it was about 2 mins away from the strip (clubs, bars, etc..)

Super Paint Party 2014. What an epic night. Got covered in paint while having the time of our life!!

My hair & makuep for the paint party. Obviously didn’t stay looking like this, but we went out for a meal before going to the paint party.

What do you think of this look? I loved it ❤

Foam party, had such an awesome night, cold but awesome 🙂 Pictured with two friends who we met on holiday!!

We also went on a booze cruise, but I didn’t take my phone or camera in case of losing them so I don’t have any pictures 😦

But on the booze cruise, we obvs drank a lot, had a good ol’ time & saw some amazing sights. We went to mainland Greece for a BBQ, had a rave in a cave with foam, jumped into the Blue Lagoon & sailed back playing party games & drinking some more 😉

We had such an amazing holiday, but all good things must come to an end. I hope to go back in a few years, but for now I think it’s time to save the dosh! (boringggg…)

Have you got any holidays planned? If so, where?

Thank you for reading beauties, have a fabulous day! ☼

Lots of Love Natasha ❤
