Warm Orange and Copper Toned Eyes with Contrasting Fuchsia-Magenta Lips

IMG_8146

Hello Hello!

So as you can see today’s look is perfect for your weekly grocery run and everyday chores – so natural and simple NOT! Haha didn’t mean to shock you guys there but just checkin to see if ya’ll are paying attention! So actually as you can tell from the photo and the title of this post that this look is a bit unconventional using contrasting tones on the eyes and the lip. I love the look of clashing colors especially the contrast between warm orangey tones versus really cool toned pinks. I’m quite pleased with how this came out and ofcourse it’s not everyone’s cuppa tea and that’s completely okay – makeup is art and all about experimenting and that’s what I love about it!

IMG_8188So let’s get on with the pictorial!!

1. After priming my lid, I mixed a matte lighter yellowish orange shade and a deeper more true orange shade (Makeup Geek Chickadee and Inglot 383) and applied it all over the upper crease in a windshield wiper motion with fluffy crease brush. You have to make it as blown out as possible.

2.  I decided to apply a little bit of a matte yellow shade (Inglot 323) just on top of where I applied the orange colors and blend it out. Then I applied Anastasia Beverly Hills Morocco, which is a warm terracotta brown, on my crease with a denser crease brush. I swiped it from the outer to inner corner of the crease.

3. Once everything is nicely blended out, I applied Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadow in FlameThrower, which is a super shimmery copper with a foiled finish, on my lid. I dampened my brush for it to get maximum intensity. Then I blended out the edges for a seamless transition with the crease colors.

4. Then I applied Anastasia Deep Plum on both my outer and inner corner to darken these areas and blended upwards towards the crease. Blend Blend Blend – go ahead and apply a little bit more if you have to at this point.

5. For more dimension, I applied a pop of shimmery orangey gold (MAC Melon pigment) on the centre of my lid.

6. I highlighted my brow bone and inner corner with a pale shimmery gold shade (Anastasia Legend). I lined my waterline with a gold eye pencil. On the bottom lashline, I darkened the outer corner with some Deep Plum and then placed Melon pigment in the middle and Legend on the inner corner. Blended it all out with Chickadee and Inglot 383. I curled my lashes, applied mascara to top and bottom lashes and then applied falsies : Koko lashes in Risque.

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

~Then I deepened the crease with MUG Cocoa Bear (warm reddish matte brown)

~Then I took Maybelline Improper Copper pigment and applied it all over the lid blending it with the crease color slightly

~Blended any edges with the fluffy brush

~I lined my eyes with a gel liner but before it set, I took a angled brush and Lorac Espresso and smudged the eye liner

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!

Kylie Jenner Inspired Modern 90’s makeup look

Inspiration Picture:

Browny nude lips was an iconic trend of the 1990’s and Kylie Jenner seem to have brought back this trend! Everyone’s going crazy for it and I have to admit I am one of those people!

The standout factor of this look are the lips so everything else is pretty neutral and basic except for the lashes which just adds that extra ‘va va voom’ factor!

** ALL THE EYESHADOWS AND FACE PRODUCTS I USED ARE MATTE …this is an all matte look

 

IMG_0968

The eyes are super basic…I tried to use avery neutral color palette unlike my usual warm shades.

~I primed my lid with Mac Painterly Paint Pot

~Then I mixed Mac Soft Brown and Wedge and dusted slightly over the lid and then put a wash on the outer crease as a transition shade

~I used Lorac Espresso to slightly deepen out the crease and outer corner…this is a very pigment dark neutral brown shade so you have to use a very light hand while using it because we want a subtle contour of the crease not too dramatic

~I used Lorac White on the brow bone and inner corner.

~Then I made a very thin line on the lash line and a slight wing

~Added mascara to my lashed and some dramatic falsies…I used the KoKo lashes in Risque

~I rimmed my waterline with a black eye pencil

~Slightly smoked the bottom lashline with soft brown and added mascara to the bottom lashes

FACE: 

CHANEL Matte Lumiere Foundation

MAC Prolongwear Concealer

BEN NYE Banana Powder to set and brighten the underye

CLARINS Splendours Bronzer for warming up the face (replacing the blush)

BENEFIT Hula Bronzer for contouring

LIPS:

now for the best part!

~I used AUSTRALIS Stay Put Lipliner in RAISIN to line my lips, fill them in and slightly over draw them so that they look fuller

~You can just use the lip liner and it still creates the perfect shade but I had to use my favorite lipstick MAC Velvet Teddy on top and I’ve heard that Kylie Jenner actually uses the same lipstick

Love you all! XO

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!

IMG_0856

 

IMG_0865

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!
