Summer in Arabia: Colorful Eye Look feat. Sleek Snapshots Palette

IMG_7894

Hi lovelies,

Yesterday I sat in front of my vanity having something totally different in my mind but I stumbled upon the Sleek Makeup Snapshots palette and the colors totally blew my mind. I had to do something colorful, something vibrant, perfect for upcoming summer festivals, parties, and weddings in the Northern Hemisphere (You lucky people! It’s freezing cold here in Aussieland :S). I’m calling it ‘Summer in Arabia’ because it is somewhat Arabic inspired with the wing and the vibrant colors.

1. After priming your lid – apply Washed Ashore on the upper crease area. Then layer on Magenta Madness with a fluffy brush on top of the previous color and go back and for on the inner and outer part of the upper crease in a windshield wiper motion to diffuse the color. Don’t pack on the color all together. Layer slowly, building up the intensity until you are happy with it.

2. Then add Purple Haze with a denser crease (MAC 217) on the outer crease bringing it inwards at the crease.

3. On a flat shader brush, take the color Green Iguana and spritz some fix plus (any facial mist) on it to give it more intensity. Add that color all over the lid stopping at the crease and leave some space at the inner corner.

4. Blend out the harsh edges between the crease and lid. Take some Purple Haze to deepen the crease. Don’t forget to take a little at a time and build up the intensity.

5. Take the color Humming Bird on a flat shader brush and spritz with fix plus. Add that color right at the middle of the lid. The golden sheen of the shadow will give the eye dimension.

6.  ~Apply the shade Martini on the brow bone. Mix Martini and Lotus Flower and apply at the inner corner.

~With a gel liner, line your upper lash line and make a wing. I chose to make the line quite thick. With the gel liner, define the        inner corners and create a triangular point and connect it with the lower water line.

~Use a navy blue eyeliner on the water line. I used Model’s Prefer eye pencil in Blue Lagoon.

~Smoke out the lash line with Purple Haze. Then diffuse that color with a combination of Magenta Madness and Washed             Ashore.

~Apply mascara on top and bottom lashes. Apply falsies. I used my favorite pair : House of Lashes Pixie Luxe.

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

Warm Rustic Eyes feat. the Sleek Sunset Palette

IMG_2367

 

HIYA MY BUNNIES!

I was just experimenting with the Sleek Sunset Palette today and came up with this look. The lighting killed me as there was barely any sun at my end and the photos really doesn’t do justice to the actual intricacy of the eyes. I wanted to upload it anyway and share the details with you all! 🙂

EYES

~After priming my lid, I started off with Makeup Geek Chickadee on the outer crease with a fluffy brush

~Then with a slightly denser crease brush, I applied Inglot 383 (matte orange) on the crease

~Then I applied the shimmery orange shade from the Sleek Sunset palette (refer to photo above) on both corners of the lid keeping the centre bare

~ Then I mixed the two shimmery terracotta shades and applied it with a crease brush on the outer and inner corner of the lid taking it slightly to the crease (inner crease aswell) and blending out the orange shade

~I applied the gold shade from the palette with a wet brush on the centre of the lid

~Then with a more precise crease brush I applied MAC Hepcat and MAC Fig. 1 to the inner corner and outer corner of the lid blending out *make sure it is precise enough not to overpower the shadows on the inner corner

~Then with a pencil brush I applied Makeup Geek Corrupt (matte black) on the outer corner and slightly upward to the crease

~Then I took MAC Hepcat and Fig. 1 once again on the same crease brush and blended the black out

~I applied MAC Brule (matte cream shade) on the brow bone

* if there are any harsh lines make sure to go back and blend everything out

~I applied Australis Grape Cake eye pencil on my waterline and slightly on the lower lash line

~blended it out with a pencil brush and MAC Hepcat

~I applied the gold color from the palette on the tear duct area

~Then with a crease brush, I took Inglot 383 and blended everything on the lower lash line

~I lined my upper lash line with MAC Blacktrack fluidline and made a wing

~I darkened the line with Physicians Formula Eye Booster eye liner pen

~I used Maybelline Falsies mascara on the top and bottom lashes and then added false lashes (KOKO lashes in Ariel)

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!
