My Younique Journey..

Hi beauties ❤

As you all know, if you read my last post, I’m now a YOUNIQUE PRESENTER 😊 I’m so excited to start this new journey!!

First things first. I know your all probably thinking “oh god no. Not another person spamming us to buy their products!!”. Well beauties, that’s not what I’m about. If you want to buy the products, you can & by your own admission!! 😊❤

Collab: Taylor Swift ‘Bad Blood’ Inspired Makeup ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

I’ve collaborated with my beautiful twin beautifulbreakable on two different makeup looks from Taylor Swifts Bad Blood music video,  if you haven’t seen the video, you need to!!! 🙂 To see how Jess created her look below head over to her blog now!! ❤

image
Jess' Taylor Swift inspired look...

Anyway the look I chose to recreate was the one at the end where she’s sporting a ginger wig, bold winged liner & red lips…

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!

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 smoking the sh** out of your eyes 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 just use products you know work for you & suit 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…

What dya think? Not bad ey.. 🙂

Sleek Makeup 3 for 2!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

So Sleek Makeup was on 3 for 2 & I couldn’t resist buying a few things 🙂

So to show you which 3 products I bought I have done a makeup look. If you’d like to see how I did this look comment below (I could also do a YouTube video!!)
image

image

The first thing I bought was the Luminaire highlighting concealer, from this first impression it’s not what I was hoping for! But I’ll keep you all posted about it 🙂

image

The second was the ‘oh so special’ I divine palette. This is the most beautiful palette ever!! It has a mix of both glittery colours & matte shades, it is a pinky palette, but is very unique. It is also very pigmented & don’t crease on the lid (even without a primer, on me!!..

image

Last but not least it’s the Matte Me lip cream in Rioja Red. Wow, what can I say these are great. They go on like a cream but dry to a matte making them long lasting. It is also very  pigmented 🙂

image

As I said, let me know if you want a tutorial on this, either on here or YouTube (or both!). Just let me know below beauties ❤

Have you tried any Sleek Makeup? What do you think of the brand?

Thanks for reading beauties, have a fabulous day xo

Lots of Love Natasha ❤

Get The Look: 50’s Inspired!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

If you follow me on instagram (if not, follow me @heyaitsnat) you’ll know that about a week ago I posted a picture of a 50’s inspired makeup look. I asked who’d like to see this look & it got quite a few likes so I took that as a yes. To be honest, I’d have done it anyway as I’ve wanted to do this for a while now but never got round to it 🙂

Inspiration photos…wpid-photogrid_1406395770393.jpgClick here for the website I found my inspiration pics on 🙂 Taylor Swift is also a huuuge inspiration when it comes to a look like this, as this is like her typical, everyday, makeup look 🙂

So I’m going to run through how I achieved my 50’s inspired makeup look. I really like how it turned out, I hope you do too…

1. I first start with a freshly cleansed, toned & moisturised face (for my morning skincare routine click here). As you can see my bare face is far from perfect, I have quite a lot of redness & dark patches. So lets begin & solve this problem…

wpid-20140725_194924.jpg

2. I started off by applying my L’Oreal True Match foundation, I didn’t apply concealer as I am going to do this after.I just wanted to get an even-ish coverage first before perfecting my skin later.

wpid-20140725_201441.jpg

3. I then went in with two light shades from my ELF palette all over the lid to brighten up my eyes.

wpid-20140725_201150.jpg

4. Using the same ELF palette I then mixed a light brown shade with a darker brown shade to act as a transition colour for the crease. As this is a 50’s inspired look there won’t be many shadows involved, just neutral colours to contour the eye a little.

wpid-20140725_201205.jpg

5. To darken up the crease & give a bit more definition I went in with my Hoola Bronzer with a fluffy tapered brush, from ELF. This just gives the look a bit more depth & dimension, which is fab for this style of makeup look!!

wpid-20140725_201324.jpg

6. This is what the eye looks like with subtle definition ready for the best part, the eyeliner!! I have slightly winged the shadow out to add to the cat-eye effect that we’ll be creating later in the look.

wpid-photogrid_1406395734532.jpg

7. Using my beloved L’Oreal Super Liner in Black Lacquer I lined my lash line & winged it out slightly at the edge. We all know how important a good cat eye was back in the 50’s! So practice, practice, practice girlies 🙂

wpid-photogrid_1406395674634.jpg

8. The picture I was inspired by had a sort of double wing look going on, so I just had to copy it, I loove it! To achieve this I used my Rimmel Kohl Pencil in White, make sure it’s sharp & draw a line parallel to the black one of the wing you just created. To define the double wing, add more black liner underneath the white. To do this I used my Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl in Black! To complete the eyes I then popped lashings of my Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara on.

It didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. But for my first time, I was pretty pleased!

wpid-photogrid_1406395614165.jpg9. To finish the look I concealed my dark circles, blemished & redness with my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I then set the base with my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent. To add more life to my face I contoured my cheek bones using Benefit Hoola & to warm the face a but more I used my Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba. For my brows I just kept them natural & set them with clear mascara.

No 50’s inspired look would be complete without a red lip, so I of coursed finished this makeup look off with my Topshop Lips in Screen Siren. I don’t know why, but these pics make it seem a pink-y red. I assure you it is a true red 🙂

wpid-photogrid_1406395575470.jpgWhat do you think of my 50’s inspired makeup look?

Let me know in the comments below, or on any of my social media (listed below). I love hearing from you guys & as ever, have a fabulous day xo

p.s. I challenge YOU to re-create this makeup look 🙂 Let me know if you’re accepting the challenge…

Lots of Love Natasha ❤

MOTN: True Love!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

I really liked the makeup I wore last night, so I thought I’d share it with you 🙂

More importantly, I rediscovered my true love. Yes, by true love I mean the lipstick I’m wearing. Want to know what it is? It’s the one & only Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie

image

OH MY WORD. I can’t explain how much I love this colour, I ALWAYS used to use it, until it got broke on a night out. However, a month or so ago I decided to repurchase it & I can definitely see why I used to love it so much.

It’s a dark red/burgundy type shade, it suits my skin tone perfectly & goes with almost anything I wear 🙂

Look no further, here is what this beauty of a product looks like on the lips…

image

For the rest of my makeup I kept it simple, I did a subtle smokey eye & flawless base with a bit of a contour/bronzer 🙂

Let me know if you’ve tried this lip butter (or any others) & what you thought about it xo

Lots of Love Natasha
