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!!

FOTD/EOTD: yellow and warm brown smokey eye with red lips!

yellowbrowncollage

Tonight I went for a yummy Vietnamese dinner with my friend Monica. I thought I’d do a fotd/eotd on the makeup I was wearing. Was intending to do just a simple neutral eye but ended up using this beautiful yellow eyeshadow by Inglot.

Breakdown of eyeshadows:

– After priming my eyelids I used Mac Soft Brown on the outer crease as a transition color

– Then I used Mac Saddle in the crease blending it with the Soft Brown

– Then I patted Inglot 323 on my eyelid

-Then with a clean brush I blended the edges with Saddle

-With a pencil brush I applied Lorac Sable precisely on my crease

-With a fluffly crease brush I blended Lorac Sable

-I applied a black kohl pencil at the outer corner and blended it with a pencil brush

– I lined the upper lash line with a gel liner and created a wing

– I applied Inglot 323 on the tear duct and Mac Saddle on the lower lash line

– I applied a kohl kajal in the waterline and smudged it with a pencil brush

– Applied Mac Brule on the brow bone as always 🙂

– A couple coats of Maybelline Falsies mascara and ALL DONE!

THE LIPS:

Makeup of the Day: earthy fall/winter eyes!

earthy colors perfect for fall /winter

earthy colors perfect for fall /winter

We’re still stuck in winter here in the Southern Hemisphere and fall is fast approaching the North, so I thought why not do a fall/winter look today. I chose very earthy yet bright tones because the most intriguing part of fall for me are the rich hues of fallen leaves: fading olive greens, burgundies, vibrant yellows and oranges!

breakdown of the e/s I used

breakdown of the e/s I used

In the photo above, I’ve just pointed out the eyeshadows I used on each area just to make it easier to understand.

Lid: Mac Sumptuous Olive described as a shimmery golden khaki color. Any shimmery olive color would do.

Transition: Mac Soft Brown: a matte, warm, light to mid tone brown which is my go to transition color! Just can’t live without it!

Outer Crease: matte Ox-blood burgundy shade from the BH Cosmetics 26 Neutral Eyeshadow and Cheek Palette….pheww that’s a long name! Have been obsessed with this shade and been using it a lot this fall/winter!

Crease: the matte black and dark brown from the Sleek Storm Palette. I gotta say guys, this black is one of the most intense black I’ve come across. Beats Mac Carbon anyday. It is extremely pigmented and sooo black!

Browbone: Mac Brule which is just a matte off-white creamy color…this is also my go to matte browbone highlight.

Tear Duct: Mac Amber Lights….a shimmery peachy bronze….so beautiful!

Underneath I’ve used the burgundy color in the outer 2/3 and the inner third I used Sumptuous Olive and a little bit of Amber Lights coming down from the tear duct.

Eyeliner: Maybelline Eye Studio gel liner in blackest black – really good drugstore gel liner

Waterline: Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 001 Black – my new favourite !

Mascara: Maybelline the Falsies – cult favorite !

Falsies: Red Cherry false lashes….i’m really sorry I don’t have the number 😦 lost the actual packaging it came in.

REMEMBER blending is key !!! You can always use a soft transition color to tone down the burgundy or any bold crease color.

a different angle :)

less clear photo but I like the angle 😛

the whole face :D

the whole face 😀 – wasn’t wearing falsies then

Foundation: L’oreal Lumi Magique in W5 – just got this foundation recently and have been loving it so far!!

Powder: Chanel White Essentiel in 50 Beige Dore – rediscovered this powder and don’t know why it was stashed in my drawers….i love it!

Cheeks: Mac Ripe for Love blush LE from Temperature Rising collection

Bronzer: Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze

Highlight: Dior Amber Diamonds…..to die for!!!

Lips: Mac Ruby Woo – a cult favorite again!!

Till next time lovelies XO !
