Monday MOTD: 90s inspired ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

The other week I was feeling a 90s inspired makeup look,  so I thought I’d show you all how I achieved this simple; but effective, 90s look!!!

Face
L’Oréal True Match Foundations in W1.
Rimmel Stay Matte powder in translucent.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer.

Eyes/Brows
Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara in black.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in black.
Benefit Gimme Brow.

Lips

I often wear simple makeup looks like this and switch up the lip colour. I don’t usually have that much time to create dramatic looks. – hoping I’ll have some soon though!!!!

The Power of Makeup ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

After seeing Nikkie Tutorials’ ‘The Power Of Makeup’ video I was inspired to create my own makeup transformation!!:)
Nikkie wants to show how makeup can be fun, but these days it’s attached with a negative stigma. Her message to people who wears makeup is ‘have fun & don’t be ashamed!’

Watch Nikkie Tutorials’ video here.

Nobody’s perfect. We all have our imperfections!

The Power of Makeup

My makeup transformation above shows how I look without makeup (right) & how I look once I’ve applied a fair amount of makeup (left). I haven’t applied a ton, just a ‘summer look’ which is quite light on the skin!

image

Use makeup to enhance your features. Not mask them.
Every single one of you is beautiful. ❤

If you’d like to see how I created this look show me some love by liking or commenting on this post 👍

I challenge you all to do this. Its so fun to do but has such a strong message!

At the end of the day,  it’s your life. LIVE IT ❤

Lots of Love Natasha

Competiton: House of Fraser Beauty Ambassador ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

As you can tell by the title this post is dedicated to the House of Fraser Beauty Ambassador Competition.. I heard about this from the lovely Nina of Ninarossbeauty 🙂

I know I posted this look not long ago, but I loved it so much I wanted to use it for my entry. As you all know Taylor is a massive inspiration for my makeup looks & outfits 🙂 So here it is, my Taylor Swift inspired makeup look…

image

If you’d like to know how I achieved this look, then keep reading..

Eyes

image

☆ I started off with the eyes to ensure no fallout ruined my face makeup.

☆ I used some sticky tape to create a sharp line;  position this just under your lower lashline as if it’s being extended!

☆ To achieve this eye look I only used shadows from the Sleek Au Natural Palette.

☆ I took the black shadow & marked out where I wanted the liner. Lining from the inner corner to the tip of the wing,  just carry on your lower lashline to create the wing, & stop at the tail of your brow! Also line the lower lashes.

image

☆ I then intensified & thickened the liner by going over it with more black shadow. You could use gel or liquid liner,  but I liked the look of shadow.

☆ Be sure to extend the liner into the inner corner too, to create even more of a feline eye!
The more cat like, the better!

image

☆ To add the sultry smokey look to this makeup I smoked out the outer corner of the eye with a dark brown shadow & the same black shadow used before!

☆ I also used the same dark brown to smoke out the lower lashline. Just keep blending & adding colour until your happy!

☆ I did apply black Kohl in my waterline and tightline after I did my base.

Face

image

☆ Once you’re happy with the eyes it’s time to perfect the skin! For my foundation I used my Revlon colourstay with my Real Techniques Buffing brush 🙂 But use products you know work for you & your skin type.

☆ To hide any dark circles & imperfections I used my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. To set the face I used my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte powder 🙂

image

☆ To add some life into the face I applied my Benefit Hoola Bronzer as a contour & on my cheeks as a bronzer to warm up the face!

☆ Also to add some shape to the brows I filled in the tails with my ELF Brow Kit & set them with Benefit Gimme Brow.

image

☆ As the finishing touch I used my Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in 24 red diva to line my lips. I then went over that with my Urban Decay Lipstick in ‘F-Bomb’.

Finished look…

I hope you all love this look as much as I do 🙂

Celebrity Makeup Looks

Hilary Duff ‘Sparks’ Inspired Makeup ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

So this was meant to get posted yesterday, but I was super busy & totally forgot…
So today I’ve got something different for you. A celebrity inspired makeup look 🙂 I’m thinking of doing an inspired look each week, so if you’d like to see that let me know! ❤

Anyway, today I’ve got a Hilary Duff inspired look, I’ve taken inspiration from her new music video ‘sparks’ 🙂 Click here to see the video.

image

Anyway onto the makeup look…
Base

image

Firstly I started off by priming my freshly cleansed skin with Benefit Porefessional. I let each product sink into the skin for a few mins before going onto the next.

After primer I move onto foundation,  to get a flawless base I decided to use my Revlon colourstay foundation, it feels lightweight yet offers amazing coverage.

To brighten the eye area I used my new love the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer! Then to set it all in place I used my Rimmel Stay Matte powder 🙂

image

Cheeks

image

To bring back dimension to the face, as always, I used Benefit Hoola to bronze & contour my face. (‘Like’ if you’d like to see a post on how I contour/highlight!!)

As Hilarys eye makeup is quite subtle I made sure my highlight was quite strong & glowy, as I think this looks beautiful & fresh. So to do this I used my MUA Mosaic blush on a fluffy Real Techniques brush & applied it to the high points of my face!

image

Eyes

image

The eyes are pretty straight forward, tons of lashes & good strong brows. To achieve this look I used my Kiko VolumEyes Mascara & Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara, these add volume & length 🙂 To make my eyes appear bigger & brighter I applied my Rimmel Kohl in White to the waterline.

For my brows I used my Benefit Gimme Brow,  I didn’t want a too heavy brow, but I wanted them to be defined!

image

Lips
Finally it’s the most important bit. The LIPS. Hilary had an amazing bright pink lip & I think this colour, Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Showy Flamboyante, is pretty similar!!

image

Here is the finished look…

Do you like this simple look with a pop of colour?

Disney

Disney Series: Belle!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

So when I asked which Disney Princess you’d like to see, Ariel & Belle won. As I did an Ariel inspired look last time, it’s time for Belles inspired look 🙂

If you’d like to know how to create this Belle inspired look then keep reading…

Base

base

As always I started off with a freshly cleansed face. To prime my skin I used MACs Prep & Prime (review will be up soon!!). I then went on to apply my Revlon Colourstay Foundation with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. To conceal my under eye circles I used a small amount of Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, I tapped this into the skin using my ring finger. This is the most delicate finger & the warmth from your finger helps the product melt into the skin better 🙂

Eyes

eyesFor the eyes I wanted to keep the look simple so I decided to just use this quad from Avon, it’s the True Colour Mocha Latte Quad! I used the light pink shade all over the lid, I then took the light brown shade in the crease as a transition shade. To deepen the outer corners I sketched in a  winged sort of look to the outer corner & blended inwards but not past the half way point on my lid. To make this look even smokier, I used the metallic brown shade in between the pink & dark brown colours, this is so the colours transition nicely from light to dark. As this is how you achieve a great smokey eye!!

To emphasise the lashline I used my Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl in Black along the upper & lower lashline & the tightline. I drew a very thin line on the top & smudged it out slightly to add to the smokey effect! I then did the same to the lower lashline & carried the liner up towards the brow to create a cat-eye effect to the look. To open the eyes I applied my Rimmel Kohl in White to the lower waterline.

This wouldn’t be a flirtatious Belle look without fluttery lashes, so to top the eye makeup off I used Benefits They’re Real Mascara!

Brows, cheeks & lips

browcheeklipBrows

To start off with I combed through my brows with the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara (medium deep), this gives quite a bit of definition so you could stop here. But to ensure my brows where nice & precise I went in with my brown brow pencil to fill in any sparse areas!

Cheeks

For the cheeks I kept it very simple, Belle always looks blushed in the films but not overly pink. So I went with a peach blush, the one I used was Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba 🙂 I placed this on the apples of my cheeks (to find where this is, smile & it’s the high bit you get under your eyes!) & swept the colour back. I find this application method to be the most flattering.

Lips

To Complete the look I opted for a simple lip. I just decided to line my lips with my ELF Long Wear Lip Liner in Mauve Luxe!

Hair

hair

To make this look more polished I put my hair into a bun. I then added in a small rose hair grip into the back of my hair as this look wouldn’t be complete without a rose! I also pulled out some short strands of hair around my face to frame my face a bit!

Here is the completed look. I hope you all enjoyed my Belle inspired makeup look! This is such a wearable look, either day or night, I think it’s timeless (very fitting for the Disney story!). Let me know what you think 🙂

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

Lots of Love Natasha ❤
