Fall Glam Smokey Eye featuring Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette

IMG_1422

Hey Hey My Bunnies,

I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette couple weeks back and I’ve finally gotten around to play and do a proper look with it…if you don’t already know, Amrezy is an amazing makeup artist and she’s big on instagram and I am a massive fan! The colors in this palette could not be more perfect! They are right up my ally! My two favorite shades are caramel and morocco! There are some great shades for fall so I thought I’ll do a fall smokey eye as the season’s approaching in the northern hemisphere.

P.S. If you follow my instagram you’d know I’ve been obsessing over these reflection apps! Will probably have photos like these in every post I make now ^_^

EYES:

IMG_1434

~After priming my eyelids, I applied Caramel (warm yellow brown matte) on the crease and outer crease with a fluffy blending brush

~Then I applied Morocco (reddish brown matte) on my crease with a narrow crease brush (MAC 217) and packed most of the color on the outer portion of the eye and then swiped across towards the inner crease blending it back and forth; I also took it down slightly to the outer lid

~Then I patted Glisten on the lid keeping a small area bare right in the middle

~Then I took Legend on a wet lid brush and placed it in the middle bare area

~Make sure to go back and forth to blend Glisten and Legend together so that there are no harsh lines

~Then with a crease brush I applied Deep Plum on the outer corner of the lid blending it with Morocco and the lid colors

~I took Deep Plum slightly up and inwards to the crease

~Then with a clean blending brush (or you can slightly dab it into Morocco), I blended the crease so that there are no harsh edges

~I applied Vanilla to the brow bone and Legend on the tear duct area

~Made a fairly thin line on my upper lash line with a black gel liner but did not make a wing

~Curled my lashes, applied mascara and then falsies

~On the bottom I diffused Caramel first with a fluffy brush, then with a pencil brush I applied Morocco on top and then I lined my water line with a deep purple eye pencil from Australis called Grape Cake

~Then with a pencil brush, I took some deep plum and smudged it along the bottom lash line

HOPE THAT MADE SENSE! LOL

LIPS: 

Option 1: Nyx Deep Purple lipliner and MAC Heaux lipstick LE (MAC Rebel can be another option from the permanent line)

Option 2: MAC Runway Hit lipstick with Nyx Creme Brule Butter Gloss

**So I threw in an option with a lighter shade of lipstick. With a more muted lipstick I think this look can be worn in any time of the year! There are no set rules in makeup so do what your heart desires!!

Kylie Jenner Inspired Modern 90’s makeup look

Inspiration Picture:

Browny nude lips was an iconic trend of the 1990’s and Kylie Jenner seem to have brought back this trend! Everyone’s going crazy for it and I have to admit I am one of those people!

The standout factor of this look are the lips so everything else is pretty neutral and basic except for the lashes which just adds that extra ‘va va voom’ factor!

** ALL THE EYESHADOWS AND FACE PRODUCTS I USED ARE MATTE …this is an all matte look

 

IMG_0968

The eyes are super basic…I tried to use avery neutral color palette unlike my usual warm shades.

~I primed my lid with Mac Painterly Paint Pot

~Then I mixed Mac Soft Brown and Wedge and dusted slightly over the lid and then put a wash on the outer crease as a transition shade

~I used Lorac Espresso to slightly deepen out the crease and outer corner…this is a very pigment dark neutral brown shade so you have to use a very light hand while using it because we want a subtle contour of the crease not too dramatic

~I used Lorac White on the brow bone and inner corner.

~Then I made a very thin line on the lash line and a slight wing

~Added mascara to my lashed and some dramatic falsies…I used the KoKo lashes in Risque

~I rimmed my waterline with a black eye pencil

~Slightly smoked the bottom lashline with soft brown and added mascara to the bottom lashes

FACE: 

CHANEL Matte Lumiere Foundation

MAC Prolongwear Concealer

BEN NYE Banana Powder to set and brighten the underye

CLARINS Splendours Bronzer for warming up the face (replacing the blush)

BENEFIT Hula Bronzer for contouring

LIPS:

now for the best part!

~I used AUSTRALIS Stay Put Lipliner in RAISIN to line my lips, fill them in and slightly over draw them so that they look fuller

~You can just use the lip liner and it still creates the perfect shade but I had to use my favorite lipstick MAC Velvet Teddy on top and I’ve heard that Kylie Jenner actually uses the same lipstick

Love you all! XO

Gold and Greens Makeup

IMG_0862

HI My Bunnies!

I’ve been stuck at home with a sore ankle and what better time to do a post than now! This is an absolutely gorgeous gold and greens eye makeup with a bronzed face! I used three different shades of green for an ombre effect even though it’s not too visible in the photos but in real life it’s stunning! This will look beautiful on brown, hazel and of course green eyes!

EYES

~After priming I started off with MakeupGeek Creme Brule on the crease and outer crease(soft warm brown matte) with a fluffy brush

~Then I went with MakeupGeek Cocoa Bear (rich warm brown matte) on the crease with a tapered crease brush

~Then with a flat shader brush I patted on MAC Amberlights (bronzed gold shimmer) on the middle of the lid …I used Fix + to wet the brush for intense color payoff (you can do this whole step last really depends on preference)

~Then I added MakeupGeek ShimmerMint (light minty green shimmer) on both sides of Amberlights and just went back and forth with both the colors until the edges blended nicely

~Then I did the same thing with MAC Humid (rich forest green shimmer) on both sides of ShimmerMint and blended the edges

~Then on both the outer and inner edges I went with MakeupGeek Envy (deep metallic green) and I used a pencil brush

~Make sure to blend it with Humid and keep a little space in the innermost corner for the highlight

~I went with MakeupGeek Cocoa Bear again to blend everything in the crease

~Used Mac AmberLights as a inner corner highlight and Mac Ricepaper for the brow bone highlight

~On the bottom, I did the exact reverse of what I did on the top starting with Envy in the middle, then Humid, then ShimmerMint and lastly AmberLights – blended all of the with Cocoa Bear

~Line the waterline and tightline with a black eyeliner

~Line your top lash line and make a wing

~Put mascara on your lashes and add falsies!

Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid Makeup

radiantorchid

radiantorchid1

Pantone is the worldwide authority of color and color systems and every year they nominate a particular color for that year. The color for 2014 is RADIANT ORCHID…it’s a beautiful purple which is actually the color of the typical orchid flower…As orchids are one of my favorite flowers I really wanted to do a look based on this color.

radiantorchiddiagram

I wanted to keep it colorful for spring but still wearable…here’s how I got the look:

~After priming lid with MAC paint pot in Painterly, I applied MAC Sushi Flower on my upper crease with a fluffy brush

~I deepened the crease slightly by taking MAC Hepcat on a denser blending brush and blending it into the crease and upper crease without completely covering Sushi Flower

~Then with a even denser domed brush, I applied MAC Fig 1 to the outer corner of my lid slightly taking it upward to the crease and blending with Hepcat

~I applied MakeUp Geek (MUG) Peach Smoothie on the inner third of my lid and on top of that I applied LORAC IT Bronze which is more of a light shimmery gold color

~On the middle portion of the lid I applied MAC Stars N Rockets blending it with the colors on both sides

~I lined my upper lash line with a liquid liner and created a thick line and a wing

~I applied Australis 10 hour wear eye pencil in Grape Cake on my waterline

~Then I mimicked my lid colors on my lower lash line accordingly.

~I applied MAC Ricepaper on my brow bone and also on my inner corner as a highlight

~Applied mascara and falsies and VOILA!

If you reside below the equator then you know the temperature’s going off the roof! Perfect time to whip out the bronzer, the warm eyeshadows, and sport a glowing sun-kissed face! And let’s not forget that pop of color – whether its on your eyes or your lips…summer is all about the brights! Today’s look features the Australis 10 hour wear eye pencil in Aqua Attack! As you can see it’s a beautiful azure-aqua shade…reminds me of the clear blue sky on a warm summer day!

I love a bronzed glowing face in summer! And blue on my waterline is one of my favorite looks! I think it makes brown/hazel eyes really pop! But I also think it looks good in all eye colors and looks beautiful on tanned skin!
