Date night makeup!!♡

Hi beauties ♡

Even before we had Rylie we, me & matt my fiance, found it hard to find time just for us. So now baby is here we are trying to make an effort every couple of months at least to have us time! Last week we went on our first date night since little man was born. So of course, I made an effort!🙂 I’m obsessed with how my makeup turned out so thought I would share it with you all 😘

If you follow my instagram you’ll have already had a sneak peek, follow me here! (I follow back)💜

For this look I just did my normal go to base, if you’d like me to do a post on my go to base routine comment below 🙂

I wanted to look like I’d made an effort but not spent ages, I love a smokey look so decided on this look, which I’m obsessed with!!

To start I used my Hoola bronzer in the crease of my eyes as a bit of warmth & definition. I then went in with a light & dark brown on the very outer corner of my eyes! Start by using the lighter brown to make it easier to blend the dark shade on top. Smoke out where you will be putting liner. Then once your happy go in with the darker brown to intensify the smokiness even more & to add dimension to the look. Don’t worry if it looks messy it comes together in the end.

I then used a black shadow along the lash line & roughly softened this for a smokey effect. Build up the shadows to your desired intensity of smoke, I left it quite soft & added winged liner to finish off the look! The winged liner really pulls the look together.

Since we are in autumn I decided that I was going to crack out my fave autumnal/winter lip! My matte liquid lipstick in the shade sensual!

This shade is my ALL TIME FAVE, I love it & really loved how it complimented this makeup look! Since the lip is dark I did use a liner first, applied the lippy & then blotted the excess off for a long lasting finish!!

Let me know if you like these shorter posts? Or do you prefer a more in depth tutorial style post?🙂

Love hearing your feedback!❤

Everyday Purple Smokey Eye ♥

Hi Beauties ☼

Recently I’ve been loving purple liner, yes, I’m being more adventurous with colour, hooray! 🙂 I have found having a subtle pop of purple on the eye really brings out my green eyes, which I LOVEEEE!!

How to get the look…

Face

For the face I used my beloved Revlon Colourstay Foundation in Buff, I applied this using my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. This is my favourite way to apply this foundation as it looks most natural & pretty flawless! To cover my under eye circles & any blemishes I used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair (love this bad boy!!) To set those in place I used my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent. Even though my skin is drier these days I still set my base so it stays all day! To add dimension back into the face I lightly contoured my face using my Benefit Hoola bronzer.

Eyes

To achieve a subtle purple smokey eye I started off by lining my upper & lower lashline with the Gosh Velvet Touch Eyeliner in Funky Violet. This is such a beautiful colour & compliments green eyes really well! To add a bit of smokiness to the eye I pushed the colour ‘Regal’ from my Sleek Au Naturel Palette into the upper lashline. I then used a fluffy blending brush to smoke this out, theres no technique to this, just apply a line of the shadow on your upper lashes & smoke it out towards the crease of your eye. Most of the colour should be at the base!! To finish off the eyes I added lashings of mascara.wpid-20150508_125816.jpgwpid-20150511_212241.jpgBrows

As usual I just brushed through my brows with the fabulous Benefit Gimme Brow. I love how amazing this looks in my brows, it’s so natural & defining! 🙂

Lips

For the lips I used a new product, Bourjois Rouge Edition in the shade 18 Violine Strass. I absolutely love this colour, its a pretty berry shade with a shimmer through it (not very noticable on the lips!). I can see this being my new favourite!! 😀

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!!

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
