Hi my bunnies!

The reason I decided to name this look ‘Amber Goddess’ is because of the two BEAUTIFUL eyeshadows I used — the stunners of the show – MAC Amber Lights and MakeupGeek Goddess! I’ve been wearing these colors constantly for the last couple of weeks, just changing up the intensity here and there. I also think it’s perfect for the upcoming EID celebrations…most people love to dress up during EID and I think these shades would compliment many different eye colors and outfits! Everybody loves glitz and glam during EID and nothing screams out glamourous more than GOLD!

*PLEASE EXCUSE THOSE UNKEMPT EYEBROWS! I really need to do something about those! Just too lazy ! 😛

EYES

~Start off with MakeupGeek Chickadee and Creme Brule on the crease taking it upward just below the browbone and across to the upper inner corner.

~So the same windshield wiper motion with MakeupGeek Country Girl all across but this time closer to the crease…take the shadow downwards to both the inner and outer corner

~Add MakeupGeek Goddess to both the inner and outer corners layering it over Country Girl (don’t completely cover it – Country Girl will be peeking through slightly)

~Add MAC Amber Lights to the center of the lid…spritz the brush with Fix + or any other mist or water  before applying the shadow to intensify the color

~With a more precise blending brush, take MakeupGeek Mocha and Corrupt and lighty start dabbing and blending in the outer corner taking it slightly up to the crease…don’t take too much in one go…layer it slowly until you get your desired intensity – Remember less is more!

~Add MAC Ricepaper to the browbone as a highlight

~Line your eyes with a gel liner and make a slight wing

~Quickly before the liner sets, take a pencil brush with a little bit of corrupt on it and start layering it over the liner, pushing it upwards as you go and smudging it

~ Tightline the upper lashline

~For the water line, I only added a black eye pencil on the inner and outer bit leaving the middle empty

~In the middle waterline add a gold eye pencil or Amber Lights eyeshadow

~On the bottom lashline do the same thing with a black eyeshadow on the outer and inner corner and MAC Amberlights in the middle

~Blend everything with a blending brush!

~Add Mascara on top and bottom lashesh and Falsies (Miss Adoro Demi Wispies)

WHEW that was a lot to explain! Hopefully I can start doing videos soon so its easier to understand! Fingers Crossed!

Hiya there my beauties!

Today’s look is revolving around my favourite eyeshadow of fall/winter 2013: Inglot Pearl 605! I’ve been obsessed with this eyeshadow and have been wearing it a lot the last couple of months. This color looks amazing smoked out with some dark browns and the pop of yellow on the tear duct makes it unique!

– After a using an eye primer (I used LimeCrime shadow helper), apply a black base on eyelids: any gel liner or black jumbo pencil

– Blend the edges of the black base with a clean brush and smoke it out

– Apply a orangey shade or a medium warm brown on your outer crease blending along the smoked out edges: Inglot Matte 383

– Leaving the tear duct area bare, apply the coppery shade on the lids over the black base to get a vibrant color payoff: Inglot Pearl 605

– Using a pencil brush, outline the crease with a very dark brown or black: Lorac Espresso

– Blend and smoke that out

– Apply the darker brown on the outer corner as well and blend that out with a warmer brown: Lorac Sable

– Apply a shimmery but sheer gold color on the center of the lid towards the outer corner. I used a cream shadow: Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Apparence

– Apply a bright yellow color on the tear duct taking it downwards to the lower lash line

– Starting from the yellow on the lower lash line, apply the coppery shade on two thirds of the lower lash line

– Smoke out the remaining lower lash line with a dark brown

– with a gel or liquid liner create a winged liner on the upper lash line

– with a dark black pencil line the water line

– finish it off with mascara and falsies for the added oomph! : Maybelline Falsies Mascara and Red Cherry lashes # 203
