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.

Ethnic Gypsy Princess Makeup Look

IMG_2109Hiya My Bunnies!

So this is a little last minute halloween look. There’s nothing gruesome happening here. It’s very feminine and super easy! It didn’t come out as amazing as I wanted it to because I had to race against the sun! If I had more time, I’d probably tweak some things and definitely would’ve embellished myself with more accessories!

For the headdress, I just wrapped my head with two different scarves and placed two necklaces on top. I did not pin anything down but ofcourse if you will something like this to a party you definitely need to pin everything.

EYES

~ After I primed my eyes, I added MakeupGeek (MUG) Chickadee on the outer crease with a fluffy brush

~Then I added Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) Morocco closer to the crease with the same brush swiping it inward

~Then with a denser fluffy brush, I mixed Lorac Mulberry and an Oxblood shade from a BH Cosmetic palette, and started buffing from the outer lid to the inner lid and also blending it with the crease colors

~Then I added MUG Corrupt on the outer corner taking it slightly up to the crease

~Then I went back and forth with Morocco and the Mulberry shades to make sure everything is blending with the black

~I added ABH Vanilla to the brow bone and mixed the same color and MAC Ricepaper to add to the inner corner taking it downward to the inner third of the lower lash line

~I lined my waterline with a black pencil and then smudged the liner with the same mulberry and oxblood shades

~I also smudged in some black on the outer third of the lower lash line

~Then I took Morocco on a fluffy brush and blended any harsh lines on the lower lash line

~I lined my upper lash line with a black gel liner and made a wing

~Added mascara to both my upper and lower lashes and then added some falsies!

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
