Rihanna of Arabia Harper’s Bazaar Cover Inspired Makeup

Hey Hey My Lovelies!

I’ve been a a fan of Rihanna’s fashion and makeup for a while now! She never ceases to amaze me and this one’s no exception! I was blown away by each and every photo of her, featured in Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. I just had to recreate the makeup she wore!

EYES

IMG_1671

The eyes are a super dramatic winged eyeshadow….you need to be a bit patient with it but you can always go back and clean up 🙂

~After priming my lids with MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, I applied Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH Amrezy) Caramel on my crease

~Then I applied ABH Vanilla on my brow bone and tear duct

~Then I used the L’oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim (the best felt tip liner I have ever used: highly recommended) to start making a wing

~Following the shape of the crease, I outlined the crease curving it inward

~Then I outlined the triangle on my tear duct and then bringing the line upward I connected it with the crease line

~After perfecting the outline, I used a black gel liner to fill in the rest of the space inside the outline

~Then to make the wing crisp, I used a concealer and cleaned up the edges

~I used a Makeup Geek Corrupt (intense black) eyeshadow to set the gel liner on the lid and make it even blacker

~In the photo, Rihanna seems to have a navy grey tint on the lid..it could be just the lighting but I just thought it looked really nice so I added MAC Deep Truth on the lid

~Then I added ABH Morocco on the lower lash line and blended it out

~Then I liner the bottom lash line and water line with black liner

~Then I curled my lashes, and applied mascara to my top and bottom lashes

~Then I added falses lashes : KOKO Ariel

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

Shimmery Taupe Smokey Eye with a pop of Beautiful Iris!

beautifuliris

beautifuliris1

This makeup look is inspired by two makeup gurus…Julie San Augustin aka Pala_Foxxia from Instagram who is one of my favorite makeup artists of all time and Still Glamorous from Youtube who is just sooo flawlessly beautiful ! I really like this combination of silvery taupe and this amazing bright lavender color. The lavender really brings out the green in my eyes (even though they are hazel :P) but I think this color would look gorgeous in any eye color. Sooo let’s see how I achieved this look!

Beautifulirisdiagram

~I primed my lid with Nars smudgeproof eyeshadow base and then applied Maybelline color tattoo in Tough as Taupe on my lid

~I then applied  MakeupGeek Moondust sprayed with Fix+ on my lid keeping a gap in the inner corner

~I blended any harsh lines with MakeupGeek Creme Brule

~Then I applied MakeupGeek Cocoa Bear on my crease blending out inwards and up

*As you can tell I can’t live without my MakeupGeek Creme Brule and Cocoa Bear!  Use them on almost all my looks!

~Then I applied LORAC Deep Purple which is a shimmery dark purple on the outer corner (you can totally use a black or dark brown)

~Don’t forget to blend!!

~Then I applied the color of the day- MAC Beautiful Iris on the inner corner taking it down to the inner part of the lower lash line

~On the lower lashline I then mimicked what I did on the lid- applied Moondust in the middle and Deep Purple in the outer corner

~Applied Mac Brule on the browbone

~Lined my upper lash line with a liquid liner ( I think this one was a Elf one) and made a semi thick line and a wing

~Lined my waterline with a black pencil

~Applied mascara (Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express) and applied falsies (Miss Adoro Demi Wispies)

 

*I have two lip options for this look ! Check it out below:

 

MAC Brave (left) and MAC Diva (right)

You can wear this look with a pinky nude lipstick for the daytime and it’s very appropriate for Spring. I’m wearing MAC Brave, one of my favorite nudes!

You can also pair this look with a dark lip and vamp it up for the night…a great look for the Fall here in Australia. Here I’m wearing MAC Diva but you can go even darker maybe do a ombre lip with a dark lip liner!

I just love the versatility of this look and how it can be both a Spring and Fall look (the current seasons in the two hemisphere)!

EOTD: Neutral eyes with Royal Blue Winged Liner

blue liner eotdblue liner eotd 1

 

HELLO MY BUNNIES!

Today’s look is all about bringing a fun twist to an everyday neutral eye. Pairing a colorful eyeliner with neutral eye shadows is a great way to wear color on your eyes without looking too over the top! This is something I do pretty often because I easily get bored of my neutrals :/ meh! I used the Models Prefer Infinite Colour Eye Pencil in Blue Lagoon for the brilliant blue winged eyeliner and Gold Star and Nude Appeal on the waterline. And let me just say, I LOVEEEE THESE EYE PENCILS! They are amazeballs ! Stay tuned for a review post! blue liner eotd diagram

WHAT TO DO:

~ After priming my eyes, I highlighted my browbone with Lorac Pro Palette White and Cream mixed together

~Then I applied the light brown shade from the Sleek Storm Palette (any light peachy toned brown i.e.  MUG creme brule or peach smoothie) all over my crease up to a my brow bone with a fluffy brush

~I applied Make Up Geek Cocoa Bear (no surprises there!) on my crease with a slightly denser crease brush (like MAC 217) bringing it down to the lower lash line

~Then with a smaller detailer brush (or pencil brush) I applied the dark brown shade from the Sleek Palette on my crease making a subtle cut crease

~Blended the edges with a little bit of MUG Cocoa Bear

~Applied Lorac White and Cream on the lid and MAC Ricepaper on the inner corner, blending the colors for a seamless transition

~Lined my eyes with the Model’s Prefer eye pencil in Blue Lagoon and made a wing (make sure it’s sharpened properly or you can use an eyeliner brush)

~Lined my waterline with MP eye pencil Nude Appeal and then topped that with MP Gold Star

~Applied loads of mascara and then falsies!!

Warm Gold Holiday Makeup

Hello my bunnies!

T’is the holiday season and this time of the year is all about the glitz and glamour and GOLD! I love a warm gold smokey eye with a bold red lip and today’s post is all about that! I just bought the Nyx roll on shimmer in Almond today and the color really inspired me to do this look. Its much more shimmery then it’s showing up in the photos and it has some micro glitters as well. I’m quite impressed and might do a review once I get my hands on some more of these!

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!
