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!

EYES

~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

EYES

~After priming, I added Makeup Geek (MUG) Creme Brule (light matte brown) to my upper crease area with a fluffy brush

~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

~Then  with a small precise brush I added Lorac Expresso (dark matte brown) on the outer corner and slighty on the inner corner and then with a crease brush I blended the color

~Then I used the Illamasqua Sealing Gel (you can just use a wet brush or MAC Fix +) and mixed it with NYX Roll on Shimmer in Chestnut and applied the pigment on the middle of the lid

~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

~If you need to reapply the Nyx pigment on the middle lid you can add this time

~Then I applied MAC Amberlights on the inner corner and Urban Decay Virgin on the brow bone

~I lined my waterline with a black pencil and applied the Nyx pigment on the bottom lash line and blended everything with MUG Cocoa Bear

~Applied Mascara and Falsies

Haifa Wehbe Inspired Arabic Makeup

Inspiration Photo:

I’ve been wanting to do a Haifa Wehbe Inspired look for ages now. So when I bought this new headpiece from Lovisa with a blue droplet couple days back, I immediately thought of this photo of Haifa. For those of you who don’t know, Haifa Wehbe is a Lebanese singer and actress. She’s a glamour icon in the Arab World. All of her looks are gorgeous, but this particular one is so unique and goes really well with the headpiece!

IMG_1278

The blue purple gradient is sooo beautiful! I added my own touch to it by changing the black eyeliner in the waterline to a royal blue one! I think the eyes pop even more with that and creates a beautiful gradient from blue to teal to purple!

IMG_1291

 

EYES

~After priming my lids, I applied a gold cream eyeshadow as a base on the lid (Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Apparence)

~On top of that cream eyeshadow, I applied Urban Decay Half Baked from the Naked palette on the lid up to the crease and also brought it all the way to my tear duct

~I blended out the edges with Urban Decay Buck (Naked Palette) with a fluffy crease brush and applied the color to the crease and outer crease, stopping just below the brow bone.

~I then applied Urban Decay Smog (Naked Palette) on the outer corner with a MAC 217 brush dragging it upwards towards the crease and dragging it outwards making a elongated v shape

~I applied MAC Ricepaper on the browbone as a highlight

~I lined my upper lashline with a gel liner and made a thick cat eye

~On the bottom lash line, I first applied Maybelline Color Tattoo in Painted Purple and on top of that I applied Iridescent Purple from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette

~I then took the Models Prefer Eyeliner in Teal Maybe and applied it just below the waterline, making sure that the teal does not completely hide the purple – the purple must peak through

~I applied Urban Decay Flipside to set the eyeliner and make the color more vibrant

~Then I lined the waterline with Model’s Prefer Eyeliner in Blue Lagoon. I have a mini review on these liner here

~Lastly I curled my lashes, put mascara on both top and bottom lashes and then added some falsies for more drama. I used the KOKO lashes in Ariel.

Shimmery Taupe Smokey Eye with a pop of Beautiful Iris!

beautifuliris

beautifuliris1

This makeup look is inspired by two makeup gurus…Julie San Augustin aka Pala_Foxxia from Instagram who is one of my favorite makeup artists of all time and Still Glamorous from Youtube who is just sooo flawlessly beautiful ! I really like this combination of silvery taupe and this amazing bright lavender color. The lavender really brings out the green in my eyes (even though they are hazel :P) but I think this color would look gorgeous in any eye color. Sooo let’s see how I achieved this look!

Beautifulirisdiagram

~I primed my lid with Nars smudgeproof eyeshadow base and then applied Maybelline color tattoo in Tough as Taupe on my lid

~I then applied  MakeupGeek Moondust sprayed with Fix+ on my lid keeping a gap in the inner corner

~I blended any harsh lines with MakeupGeek Creme Brule

~Then I applied MakeupGeek Cocoa Bear on my crease blending out inwards and up

*As you can tell I can’t live without my MakeupGeek Creme Brule and Cocoa Bear!  Use them on almost all my looks!

~Then I applied LORAC Deep Purple which is a shimmery dark purple on the outer corner (you can totally use a black or dark brown)

~Don’t forget to blend!!

~Then I applied the color of the day- MAC Beautiful Iris on the inner corner taking it down to the inner part of the lower lash line

~On the lower lashline I then mimicked what I did on the lid- applied Moondust in the middle and Deep Purple in the outer corner

~Applied Mac Brule on the browbone

~Lined my upper lash line with a liquid liner ( I think this one was a Elf one) and made a semi thick line and a wing

~Lined my waterline with a black pencil

~Applied mascara (Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express) and applied falsies (Miss Adoro Demi Wispies)

 

*I have two lip options for this look ! Check it out below:

 

MAC Brave (left) and MAC Diva (right)

You can wear this look with a pinky nude lipstick for the daytime and it’s very appropriate for Spring. I’m wearing MAC Brave, one of my favorite nudes!

You can also pair this look with a dark lip and vamp it up for the night…a great look for the Fall here in Australia. Here I’m wearing MAC Diva but you can go even darker maybe do a ombre lip with a dark lip liner!

I just love the versatility of this look and how it can be both a Spring and Fall look (the current seasons in the two hemisphere)!

EOTD: Neutral eyes with Royal Blue Winged Liner

blue liner eotdblue liner eotd 1

 

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!!
