Cool Toned Smokey Eye – Grey

IMG_3923

 

Hello My Bunnies!

It’s been so long that I’ve done a post. It’s been hectic with the holiday season and work. On top of that, I’ve been feeling super uninspired lately but nonetheless I have a look for you today. It’s a pretty simple cool toned smokey eye with a peachy nude lip. I love using warms colors most of the time but there are times when I gravitate towards greys and taupes. I think they pair beautifully with a lot of different skin tones and you can match them with many different lip colors aswell.

EYES:

~After priming I used MakeupGeek (MUG) Creme Brule per usual on the outer crease with a fluffy brush

~Then with a denser crease brush (MAC 217) I used MAC Saddle on the crease blending with Creme Brule

~With a fluffy brush I gently blended Saddle on to the outer corner in a circular motion towards the crease

~Then I used MUG Slate and with a MAC 217 and blended it in a circular motion from the outer corner bringing it inwards and stopping 1/3 of the way

~Keep blending in harsh edges with a clean brush or with a teeny tiny bit of Saddle

~Then I took Lorac Gray and started applying from where I stopped with Slate (mainly on the middle lid)

~Blend Blend Blend!

~Then for the inner one third I used MUG Rockstar which is a greyish silver with pearl pink duochrome

~For the tear duct I used Urban Decay Virgin and I also applied that to my brow bone

~Lastly I decided to deepen outer corner and crease so I first used Lorac Espresso which is a dark brown and then to deepen further I used MUG Corrupt (Black) and blended it on my outer corner very carefully so that I don’t muddle everything

~Again go with a little bit of Saddle and blend any harsh edges

~I lined my waterline with a black kohl pencil and then with a pencil brush I took a bit of Corrupt and Slate and smudged the bottom lash line

~I dragged a little bit of Virgin from the tear duct to the inner one third of the lower lash line

~I applied Mascara and Falsies – Ardel Demi 120

Spring/Summer Pastel Eyes

pasteleyes

 

Hey Hey My Bunnies!

So today’s post is all about fun pastel shades for the spring/summer season in Aussieland!  Wearing pastel shades on your eyes may seem quite absurd or scary to some of you but trust me you can do beautiful looks with these colors! In this look, I chose to use a pretty minty green, a pastel baby pink and a bright purple!

~ I prepped my eyes with MAC Painterly paint pot

~ I applied Maybelline color tattoos in edgy emerald on the centre lid, inked in pink on the inner corner and painted purple on the bottom lashline. They will work as bases to brighten up the eyeshadows.

~ Then I applied MAC Steamy eyeshadow on the centre lid and Urban Decay (UD) Coax and X-Rated from the VICE 2 palette on the inner corner taking it downwards to the lower lashline

~ I blended the edges with a clean brush and then added Makeup Geek (MUG) Creme Brulee on the crease

~I applied Lorac Sable on the outer corner and upwards to the crease

~I darkened the outer corner with Lorac Espresso eyeshadow

~On the bottom lashline, I applied UD Betrayal from the VICE 2 palette

~ With a liquid liner, I lined the lashline and created a wing making sure the line isn’t too thick

~I lined the waterline with a black eye pencil

~Applied mascara on top and bottom lashes and applied falsies (Ardell 102 demi)

And VOILA! You’ve got a fun, flirty, colorful pastel eyelook for spring/summer!

Since it’s a fun summer look, make sure you keep the skin dewy and glowing! I did not use a dewy foundation because I wasn’t sure what look I was planning to do so I added a liquid luminizer and topped it off with a powder highlighter! Ways to achieve a dewy look is to either use a dewy foundation (something’s that’s not matte), add a liquid luminizer with your foundation, or highlight your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, and/or chin, and centre of forehead with liquid/powder highlighter or both! You can always use a shimmery champagne/light gold eyeshadow if you don’t own a highlighter!

 

Foundation: CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 foundation in 857

Concealer: Mac Prolongwear concealer in NW25 and Maybelline Age Rewind in Medium

Powder: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light

Bronzer: Mac Refined Golden

Blush: MAC Modern Mandarin

Highlight: L’oreal Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Incandescent Light

Lipstick: Wet n Wild Dollhouse Pink!

Hope you enjoyed this post loves! Until next time XO XO !

 

 

Eid Look 2: Celebrate with Colors!

 

2eidlook2

This is the 2nd Eid Look that I came up with. I was confused between a colorful eye and a dark smokey eye but my friend Farah suggested color, so here we are! Eid is a very joyous occasion, therefore spread some love, happiness, and color to all your loved ones this Eid. I know Eid has already been celebrated in some parts of the world and I apologize for not being able to post this look earlier. However, Eid celebrations do not end in one day ! Eid Mubarak everyone.

The photo above do not do justice to the beautiful colors that I have used. Here’s a photo taken with flash:

A breakdown of the eyeshadows I used:

2eidlookdiagram

 

Step By Step:

– First use a primer: Nars Smudge Proof Eye Shadow Base

– Then use a white base so the colors show up more vibrantly: Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk

– Then sweep Mac Sushi Flower or any coral or pink eyeshadow on the out crease creating a transition for the other eyeshadows

– Then wet an eye shader brush with Mac Fix + (or water or any other face mist) and dab Mac Stars N Rockets (duochrome purple and pink) on the lid. You can spray Fix+ after you have eyeshadow on the brush aswell.

– Then with a fluffy crease brush (Mac 217 / Sigma E25) diffuse Mac Hepcat (discontinued – you can try Mac Plum Dressing) on the outer corner up to the outer crease .

– Take a pencil brush and outline the crease with Mac Fig.1 (dark matte purple) and blend it out with a fluffy crease brush.

– Use Mac Beautiful Iris (lavender color) on the inner corner

– Use Urban Decay Virgin from the Naked Palette on the brow bone and tear duct.

– Line the eyes with a black gel or liquid liner. Make a elongated wing.

– On the bottom lash line, use Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tenacious Teal or Edgy Emerald as a base. Drag it underneath the black winged eyeliner.

– Go over the teal/emerald base with Mac Steamy or Shimermoss (shimmery blue green).

– Line the waterline with a black kohl liner.

– Coat both your upper and lower lashes with mascara and use falsies to make the look even more dramatic. I used Ardell 120 demi lashes even though I feel these weren’t best choice for this look.

Here’s a couple of full face shots:
