Helllooo My Lovelies!

I know it’s a bit late but as promised here I am with a Adriana Lima Inspired Look from the Met Gala this year. I’ve been sick and then I was in Melbourne and I’m still feeling a bit under the weather but things need to be done! I really enjoyed doing this look and even tried to do a faux bang but failed miserably LOL !

Oh she’s so stunning I can’t even! Obviously our shapes are different. You can barely see her eyelids from the photos but I looked through as many photos I could and got a general idea.

Just a side note: My only regret is I think the highlight looks a bit too silvery/greyish…It wasn’t like that face to face and when I was doing the makeup but maybe I’ll choose a different shade for the highlight if I had to do it again.

~Start off with a grey base all over the lid – Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe

~Go all over the lid with a grey color – Lorac Stone

~Take that grey to the crease and blend – I added Lorac Lilac with Lorac Stone

~ Then apply a light/white matte shade to the brow bone just to keep in check that you are not taking the grey too high up – Lorac Vanilla

~Add a smokey grey tone with a satin or shimmery finish on the lid – I mixed MAC Satin Taupe and Makeup Geek Moonstone

~Don’t forget to blend everything together at the crease with clean brush or with a little bit of the crease color

~Now comes the fun part with the black eyeshadow – firstly with kohl pencil make a wing starting halfway the lash line

~With a smudger brush, start smudging that wing liner until it has a blurred effect

~Then with a crease brush (MAC 217/ Zoeva 227/ Sigma E25) take some black eyeshadow – Makeup Geek Corrupt – make sure you dust it off so that there is no excess product – and start going over that lining blending upward towards the outer crease and outer edge – go slowly and take as little product as possible at a time and build the black

~ Blend it with the lid and crease colors – you can go and add more of the greys if it helps you to blend

~Go with the black kohl pencil on the bottom lash line (NOT THE WATERLINE) and line halfway – leave a space on the inner third part

~With a pencil brush and black eyeshadow, smudge that liner and smoke it out

~Smoke it out farther down with a grey eyeshadow and a crease brush so there are no harsh lines

~On the inner corner, go with a shimmery champagne/pearl highlight – take it upward to the inner lid and on the inner third of the lower lash line

~Apply a little bit of that shimmery highlight shade on the brow bone as well

~Apply a nude or white eyeliner on the water line

~Curl your lashes, apply mascara on top and bottom and lashes and apply falsier! I used Social Eyes Vamp Lashes but to be honest I should’ve gone with the style Delight instead 😦

Metallic Blue and Purple Smokey Eye

IMG_5390

Hey Hey My Bunnies!

Today I’m rocking this grungy smokey eye with this stunning metallic blue and purple duo-chrome eyeshadow on the lid….I’m head over heels for this eyeshadow…it’s from Colourpop Cosmetics and it’s called BAE! Totally appropriate considering how I feel about it! And can I just say, these eyeshadows are incredible, they are like a hybrid between a cream and powder eyeshadow and they almost feel wet to the touch. My bestie gave me a bunch of the eyeshadows as a birthday pressie and I can’t wait to get my hands on more! I’m also wearing one of their lippiestix on my lips today…keep reading to find out the name!

~After priming, I started with MakeUpGeek (MUG) Creme Brule (soft brown matte) on my upper crease and crease as a transition shade

~Then I applied MAC Hepcat (pinky purple) with a slight denser crease brush all around my crease from outer edge to inner corner – Hepcat is a discontinued shade but any pinky purple shade will do

~Then I applied MUG Bitten (burgundy matte) on my outer corner and inner corner pushing it towards the crease leaving a blank space on the middle, I applied more to darken until I was happy with it

~Make sure to blend blend blend

~On the middle of the lid I first applied a teal colored cream shadow (Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tenacious Teal). I applied a teal in order for the blue glitters on our main eyeshadow to stand out

~Then on top I applied Colourpop BAE. I used a wet brush to intensify the color even more.

~Then to darken the outer corner a little bit for more definition, I applied MUG Corrupt and Mocha together in a pointy crease brush and blended it out with Bitten

~On the browbone and inner corner I applied MAC Ricepaper

~I applied a teal eyeliner on my waterline

~On the bottom lashline, I applied Hepcat and Bitten and darkened the outer corner with Corrupt

~Applied mascara on top and bottom lashes and then applied falsies – House of Lashes Iconic
