Trying out white eyeliner!

Hello Everyone,

Last week I decided to try out white liquid eyeliner, I have noticed it has been a trend on social media and makeup artists are creating beautiful looks. It was a little harder to apply than black eyeliner, you have to apply a few layers as it can look patchy. I created a glitter light smokey eye to go with it. To make the glitter look more pigmented I used Mac Pro fix +! But you can damp a flat eyeshadow brush to get the same effect.

Lashes are by house of lashes in siren. For my brows I have been using Anastasia dip pomade. Super easy to apply with a angle eyebrow brush.

Pink Smokey Eye Makeup

Hello Everyone, I have create a pink smokey eye look using the Huda beauty mauve makeup obsessions palette and a makeup geek eyeshadow. I love these two brands and they have such great pigmentation to their eyeshadows.

I haven’t used a pink eyeshadow in a while and wanted create a makeup look which stood out a bit more. I think it’s really important to have a blending brush when using bright or dark colours this will even it out and get rid of harsh lines. You can get some amazing brushes at beautybay.com

I love using false eyelashes when using eyeshadow, it gives my eye a nice look and puts everything together, I always use a pencil or liner to create a wing and like using a pencil in my water line.

Thank you for reading. I hope you like this makeup look💄🎨👄

 

Makeup Revolution + Free Makeup

Hello Everyone, I have came across a makeup brand that I REALLY wanted to try out. Alot of beauty gurus on youtube have been raving about how great and affordable the makeup is. The Makeup Revolution concealer is the most spoken about because of how great coverage it gives and people have compared it to the shape tape concealer by Tarte. Many people are saying it is a great dupe. The concealer is thick but creamy and easily blendable, works great with a small buffer brush or damp beauty blender.

TIP: To make my concealer last longer, I spray some Mac Pro Fix + onto my damp beauty blender before blending. This makes the concealer stay on and last through out the day.

I went on to Superdrug.com and purchased their concealer which was £4, an amazing price as this concealer is great quality, this has to be my new favourite and will be buying it in more shades as the one I purchased is a bit light for my skin tone but I can work around that by applying a darker powder on top.

I wanted to get a new liquid lipstick kit as I just love how they are long lasting and you do not need to keep applying after you eat or drink. I purchased a makeup revolution lip kit which is are great dupes of KYLIE JENNERS Lip kits. I purchased one in the colour NOBLE. It comes with the lip pencil which is super easy to apply as its creamy and soft and goes great with the liquid lipstick. I would recommend if purchasing this, to put on a lip cream or vasiline before applying this product, just to get some moisture on the lips as this can be a bit dry, depending how much layers you put on.

The next item I got was the contour palette which has a great range of colours to choose from. I love this palette as it has cool grey tones which are more natural looking when sculpting the face and contouring those cheekbones. The powders are really pigmented and feel amazing on the skin and gives a good coverage if you are setting your under eyes. 

The palette cost me £8 which I think is a great price as some well known palettes are over £20 and that is just for one product. I was so happy that I got some amazing product all for under £20.

When shopping on Superdrug they was doing a deal if you spend over £12 on Makeup revolution products you recieve a free palette. I have looked on the website this morning & they have taken off the deal which I am sad about as I wanted to share with you guys! This palette has eyeshadows and highlighters and are soo pigmented. I have found a great palette which is similar to this palette Love conquers all at just £4. Click link to see ALTERNATIVE.

The next thing I want to purchase from this brand is their £4 eyeshadow palette. I have researched about this product and watched many youtube videos and people cannot believe how great and pigmented the eyeshadows are. Smooth and easy to apply which is what I LOVE.

Searching for the best liquid lipstick!

Hello Everyone, I have been researching online for the best liquid lipsticks, I love using liquid lipstick to ordinary lipsticks as I find them more long lasting and the product does not come off after you eat or drink!

I recently purchased a soft matte creme liquid lipstick from Nyx in the colour ‘Stockholm’ I like nude/pink tones for an everyday look and this colour if perfect and you can glam it up for in the evening by applying a gloss over the top.

nyx liquid lipstick

This lip creme is £6 which is an amazing price compared to other liquid lipsticks out there. You can buy this product in Boots/Cult Beauty/Debenhams & many more stores and online websites. What I love about this product is that it is not too drying on the lips but I would always recomend you exfoliate your lips before applying or appyling a lip balm before just so the lipstick does not crack or look super dry.

 

Jeffree Star has a collection of velour liquid lipsticks which I have two of in the colour Gemini & Calabasas. These lipsticks are slightly more expensive at £16 which is a little pricey for a lipstick but its worth it if your looking for a good quality liquid lipstick! These lipsticks have a nice scent are smooth to apply and not too tacky or drying on the lips.

 

 

 

I love the Kylie Cosmetics Matte liquid lipstick, I have purchased the lip kit before and find it so handy that you get the matching colour lip liner. I find it so hard to find a lip liner  that matches my lipsticks so purchasing this was a life saver!

‘The Matte Liquid Lipstick has high intensity pigment for an instant bold matte lip. The extremely long wearing lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel that does not dry your lips out’ – Kylie Cosmetics

You can also buy Matte singles with out the liner, which is more cheaper at $17/£12.13. Sadly you can only purchase these liquid lipsticks on kyliecosmetics.com. Which you have to pay abit extra for shipping if you are out of the states.

All three of these liquid lipsticks I am pleased with and would definalty recommend if you are looking for a new liquid lipstick or if you havent try out one and looking to purchase one. I tend to stick with lighter colours when using a liquid lipstick just because I personally prefer the way it looks wearing nude/pink & brownish tones.

How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Screen Shot 2018-01-19 at 19.41.17.png

Hi Everyone, Today I wanted to share with you on how I clean my makeup brushes, I try to do this once a week with the brushes I use everyday. With the brushes I rarely use, I tend to clean them when I know that I have to use them. I love to have my brushes feeling soft, I use to get worried that my brushes would get damaged by cleaning them but it is so important to sanitise your makeup tools. Especially when using for foundation, this can make your brush become dry and then gradually will make the application more hard to blend and can make your foundation to appear more caked and not so fresh looking. I believe it helps keep breakouts away, makeup brushes can hold bacteria which is not good so trying to avoid germs by cleaning your brushes can help keep those spots away!

Unknown

You can buy products that clean your makeup brushes but if you haven’t got time for that or want to use what you have at home then, I would to share with you how I clean my brushes at home.

  EASY … EASY … EASY 

I would suggest running your brushes under lukewarm water making sure you are getting most of the product off. Then I would fill a bowel with Lukewarm water and squirt some shampoo into the water, I personally like to use a shampoo with no harsh chemicals. I use Simple – Kind To Hair Shampoo. I would also recommend a gentle shampoo like a baby shampoo.

pout lips

I would gently swirl the brush tip into the water, this will help get all the products out without damaging your brush. If you feel that your brush still has product on it, You can empty the bowel at repeat the steps until you feel like all the makeup is out of the brush.

After this I would run my brush under the tap with lukewarm water again to rinse out the shampoo. I would take a clean flannel or towel, whatever works best for you, gently drying the brushes as I am reshaping the bristles on the brush into place. I would place my brushes on top of the flannel and leaving them to air dry. I like cleaning my brushes at night so I when I wake up they are dry, so no waiting about! .. Happy Days.

If you would like to buy a product that will help scrub your brushes clean, you may heard of these cleansing palettes that are used to deep cleanse your brushes. I myself have not yet purchased one of these, but I am willing too as the reviews are all positive and by what people are saying, it can save you time!!

How To Get Full Natural Looking Eyebrows

Hi Loves, Today I wanted to share with you a few products that I use to get full natural looking eyebrows. I love making my eyebrows look more fuller as I think it can really change the way you look. I use three products to achieve my brow look and would recommend all the products I am going to tell you about. I hope you can take something from this post and helps you, if you are looking for new brow products.

Screen Shot 2018-01-13 at 11.12.31

When it comes to sorting out my brows, I always make sure I pluck any hairs that are in between my brows, but only in the centre no where else. This is because I don’t like to over pluck, I use to get carried away when I was younger and I ended up having hardly no eyebrows left lol. I use castor oil on my brows to help them grow and this also makes your eyebrows thicker which has been a life saver for me!

Everyday I use my Revlon Colorstay Eyebrow Pencil, this is a great pencil to use as its smooth and easily to apply. I have this in the colour Soft Black. I start off by using the brush pulling my eyebrow hairs upwards, this just helps me create the shape I want much easier. I then use the angled tip to define and sculpt my brows.
I would recommend this product as it is good quality and only cost me £6.99.

After applying my Colorstay eyebrow pencil I then go over my brow using Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip brow Pomade in the colour medium brown, using an angle brush from Morphe. This just helps fill out the brows and covering any places I have missed, It also keeps all the products together and lasts through out the day.

The next cosmetic I want to talk about is a peel off, semi-permanent tinted eyebrow product. Once a week I like to apply Maybelline Tattoo Brow to my eyebrows this is great to help create a nice shape for your brows and lasts up to three days. This item cost me £12.99, I have to say for me that is a good price as each application lasts up to three days. I tend to use this the night before if I go out somewhere the next day.

Here are the steps to create your perfect brow!

Step 1:
Clean your brows and apply our Tattoo Brow tinted semi-permanent eyebrows over your existing brow hair. If any mistakes are made or you need to reshape, use a
cotton bud to easily remove your Tattoo Brow before it sets.

Step 2:
Leave your new brows to set for at least 20 minutes.
For super long wear, set the product for up to 2 hours.

Step 3:
Using your fingers to peel off the Brow Tattoo semi-permanent eyebrows by starting at
the inner corner of each brow.
The tint will be revealed underneath, giving you naturally fuller
looking brows.
Please note: To make the most of your long-wear tint, try
to avoid exfoliating or harsh cleansers

Soft Eyes & A Red Lip – Makeup Look

Hi Loves,

Today I wanted to share with you a makeup look which I think is perfect for work or school.

If you fancy changing up your everyday look I think a dark/bright lip colour than what you normally go for is fun idea.

I love using a soft brown eyeshadow when I have a dark lip on just because I don’t want to look too over the top for in the day. But it’s what ever best works for you!!

I love using my Gerard cosmetics lipstick in the colour fire engine. This is such a pretty colour and can really put an outfit together! This lipstick is moisturising and smells lovely.

When wearing a red lip, I think a cut crease eye look is great, it gives you a classy look and is great for all occasions.

I have came across a great eyeshadow which I think will go well with a red lip, it is matte and will give your eyelid a contoured look which will add definition.

This eyeshadow is in the colour bake sale by makeup geek, I swear by this brand as I know I am going to get good quality eyeshadows!

To keep the eyes natural I would just add a mascara, I use my Dior DiorShow. This is a lovely mascara and gives my lashes a nice length.

To add a nice glow I would recommend Becca cosmetics highlighter, this is very popular and this product is on various online beauty websites. I am using Gerard Cosmetics highlighter in the colour grace in the picture above.

Top Three Beauty Products I Use Everyday

I thought I would share with you guys the top three beauty products that I LOVE and use everyday! Before applying my makeup I love using award winning manuka doctor gold dust firming serum. This adds a lovely glow to the skin and makes my skin look my healthy and fresh. I like to use serums as they have a less greasy feeling on the skin and they absorb faster. I have combination skin so using a serum is perfect as this will stop my face from looking and feeling oily.

  1. Manuka Doctor Gold Dust Firming Serum
  • Clinically proven, after just one application skin looks more radiant, smooth and more even toned
  • Clinically proven, in 28 days skin feels firmer and facial contours more defined
  • Noticeable long lasting moisturisation

2. MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick

For my everyday look, I always apply MAC velvet teddy lipstick, it moisturises my lips and has a nice scent. It is a very pretty colour and makes your lips have a bit of a tint which is what I love! Kylie Jenner is also a fan of this lipstick when she first got her lips enhanced this was her go to lipstick, in the picture below shows Kylie wearing the lipstick along with the lip liner by MAC in the colour SOAR.

3. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

Nars radiant creamy concealer is perfect for concealing dark circles under the eyes and hiding imperfections. I love this concealer because it lasts through out the day, I do like to add a translucent powder over the top to give a nice smooth look to your skin. NARS Radiant creamy concealer has been voted the best concealer in the US.

Soleil Tan De Chanel – Chanel

Soleil tan deChanelis a great product if you want to look more bronzed. As its winter time I still want to have a gorgeous glow. I recommend this product if you feel the same, you can apply this under your foundation or over the top. I normally apply this over the top and use it as a bronzer. I contour my cheekbones, around the edges of my forehead and jaw line. This makes my face appear more slim which is what I like doing as my face is round/square shaped.

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 19.17.57.png

I have had this product for some time and it still looks brand new, you can get so many wears out of this product. The price of this product is £36.00 which is on the pricy side. As Chanel is a luxury brand it is expected but I have to say this is very long lasting and I won’t need to be buying any more bronzers for a while.

NYE Makeup Look

I love getting ready for NYE, I have created a look that I think will be great for a night out. For my eyes I have created this gold/green shimmer eyeshadow going into a black smokey eye. I thought to do something different for a change as I am always using the same eyeshadow colours. The gold and green tones made my blue eyes pop and to finish off the eye look I applied some full wispy lashes.

I started off by applying a base colour to my eyelid, this can be any white/creamy tone eyeshadow that you have. I used my  25A Copper Spice morphe palette for this and applied the product using a flat brush. As always I use my MAC Fix + and spray the product on to my brush as this makes the eyeshadow stay on longer and gives more of a pigmented effect. Continuing using my morphe palette I applied a light warm orange/brown eyeshadow using a crease blending brush.

For the centre of the lid I used the Makeup Geek Dirty Martini Eyeshadow, this is a light green colour. I would highly recommend makeup geek eyeshadows, they are known for their great pigmentation and are easily to blend. It is important to keep blending your eyeshadows together, this will give you a smoother look to avoid any harsh lines. I went back to my morphe palette and picked up a slightly darker brown tone to apply into my crease, this will give my eye more definition and over the top of my green eyeshadow I used a gold shimmer eyeshadow, you can use a flat brush or your finger and lightly apply this over the centre of the lid. I then went in with a grey/black tone eyeshadow only applying a little bit to my crease just to put the eye look together. I picked up my blended brush once again and blended every thing out.

To give me a glow on my face I used my Gerard Cosmetics Highlighter in the colour Grace. For foundation I used my born this way foundation by too faced, the reason I used this foundation is because it gives a full coverage which I think is great for a night out as it will last longer and look great in photos. For my Lips I applied Benefit Sugar Bomb Lip Gloss, I adore this product it is really glossy and has a lot of moisture. Plus it is not sticky like some lip glosses you get.

 

To get full wispy lashes, Lily lashes have the best lashes you can get plus you can get 20+ wears out of them, thats very long lasting! I have the lashes ‘Miami’ the popular style and most sold as Kylie Jenner uses these lashes!

‘An ultra-wispy set of false lashes, ideal for achieving an Insta-worthy finish. The Miami lash has been seen on Kylie Jenner on the red carpet over and over. This 3D Mink Lash is the perfect way to gain a seductive finish to your favorite glam moments. Ultra-long, yet incredibly lightweight, these lashes sit seamlessly along the lash-line for a comfortable wear.’ – Lily Lashes
