Aishwarya Rai Cannes 2015 Jazbaa Photocall Inspired Makeup Look

IMG_7426

Hi Dolls!

Aishwarya was fabulous at this year’s Cannes film festival! There were a few different looks to choose from but I asked you guys in Instagram and Facebook and looks like this one’s the winner! And I personally love this one more than the others. It’s a very simple eye using all matte brown shades. The star of the show is the deep red wine lips….stunning!

EYES

I’ve got a step by step pictorial for you guys today and I’ll try to make a habit out of that! I understand it makes it easier for you lovelies to learn the look. The eyes are super easy to do for this look!

1.Prime your eyes using a tinted primer or concealer all over your lid.

2.Then with a crease brush apply a light matte ‘nudey’ brown shade all over the lid and up to the crease. I mixed MakeupGeek Creme Brule with Peach Smoothie to make it even lighter.

3.Then with a crease brush, intensify the crease using a warm caramel brown shade. I used MAC Saddle and I took it from the outer crease all over to the inner crease in a circular motion. Aishwarya seemed to have warmth on her inner crease.

4.This is an optional step. As I was looking through pictures I felt that there was a smokiness peeking through her eyeliner. This may just be an illusion but I still wanted to add that. So I took a kohl pencil and smudged it along the lash line. Used a pencil brush to further smudge it and take it a little up to the outer corner.

5.Then I took a darker more cool toned coffee brown ( MakeupGeek Mocha ) and mixed it with a little bit MAC Saddle and intensified the crease and outer corner using a circular motion. The eyeshadows in this look are applied in a more rounded shape as opposed to a cat eye winged out shape.

I also added MAC Brule which is matte cream shade on my brow bone and inner corner

6. I used Inglot gel liner in 77 to create a semi thick but short wing. I kept the thickness of the liner pretty uniform all throughout the lash line. On the waterline I used a brown kohl pencil. On the bottom lash line I added some MakeupGeek Creme Brule.

I curled my lashes, applied Mascara on top and bottom lashes and added Falsies (KOKO Lashes – Ariel)

Hellooo My Bunnies!

If you read my blog, you can probably tell that nothing is as sweet as a sultry smokey eye for me! So here I go again with another smokey eye look ! This time I used dark bronzes and browns and paired it with this sexy hot pink lip! VA VA VOOM! Summer nights just got hotter! So if you’re like me and just can’t resist making your eyes smokey for an evening out, then be sure to try this look!

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

Fall Glam Smokey Eye featuring Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette

IMG_1422

Hey Hey My Bunnies,

I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette couple weeks back and I’ve finally gotten around to play and do a proper look with it…if you don’t already know, Amrezy is an amazing makeup artist and she’s big on instagram and I am a massive fan! The colors in this palette could not be more perfect! They are right up my ally! My two favorite shades are caramel and morocco! There are some great shades for fall so I thought I’ll do a fall smokey eye as the season’s approaching in the northern hemisphere.

P.S. If you follow my instagram you’d know I’ve been obsessing over these reflection apps! Will probably have photos like these in every post I make now ^_^

EYES:

IMG_1434

~After priming my eyelids, I applied Caramel (warm yellow brown matte) on the crease and outer crease with a fluffy blending brush

~Then I applied Morocco (reddish brown matte) on my crease with a narrow crease brush (MAC 217) and packed most of the color on the outer portion of the eye and then swiped across towards the inner crease blending it back and forth; I also took it down slightly to the outer lid

~Then I patted Glisten on the lid keeping a small area bare right in the middle

~Then I took Legend on a wet lid brush and placed it in the middle bare area

~Make sure to go back and forth to blend Glisten and Legend together so that there are no harsh lines

~Then with a crease brush I applied Deep Plum on the outer corner of the lid blending it with Morocco and the lid colors

~I took Deep Plum slightly up and inwards to the crease

~Then with a clean blending brush (or you can slightly dab it into Morocco), I blended the crease so that there are no harsh edges

~I applied Vanilla to the brow bone and Legend on the tear duct area

~Made a fairly thin line on my upper lash line with a black gel liner but did not make a wing

~Curled my lashes, applied mascara and then falsies

~On the bottom I diffused Caramel first with a fluffy brush, then with a pencil brush I applied Morocco on top and then I lined my water line with a deep purple eye pencil from Australis called Grape Cake

~Then with a pencil brush, I took some deep plum and smudged it along the bottom lash line

HOPE THAT MADE SENSE! LOL

LIPS: 

Option 1: Nyx Deep Purple lipliner and MAC Heaux lipstick LE (MAC Rebel can be another option from the permanent line)

Option 2: MAC Runway Hit lipstick with Nyx Creme Brule Butter Gloss

**So I threw in an option with a lighter shade of lipstick. With a more muted lipstick I think this look can be worn in any time of the year! There are no set rules in makeup so do what your heart desires!!

March Favorites 2014 !

Helloo my bunnies!

So the weather change has really gotten to me and now I’m sick at home, bored and lonely :/ Really wasn’t feeling like putting any makeup on my face so thought it’s about time I actually do a monthly favorites post! I think of doing this every month but I never get around to do it but here I am today!

MAKEUP!

LORAC PRO PALETTE: this palette has been around for awhile now and has been one of the  most hyped palettes ever. Unfortunately you can’t get it here in Oz…I went above and beyond to get my hands on this….more like my Aunt in Canada did….cuz it was sold out in all the sephoras! Anyway it’s been over a year that I had this but this past month I’ve been reaching for it soo much! 16 eyeshadows- 8 matte and 8 shimmery….all neutral shades, very buttery and pigmented…a little powdery in my opinion but overall a perfect a go to palette especially since the packaging is so thin! Really convenient to travel with!

HOURGLASS AMBIENT LIGHTING POWDER IN DIM LIGHT: I’ve got the limited edition palette that actually has three shades but the Dim Light is a permanent product….and its AMAZEBALLS! Seriously when you apply it after your foundation and concealer, it just finishes your makeup so nicely…kinda like blurs imperfections and makes your skin look flawless and glowing from within…it’s just beautiful…can’t describe it….you gotta try this first hand!

L”OREAL NUDE MAGIQUE EAU DE TEINT: new product to hit the Australian drugstores….it’s a really nice lightweight foundation …very liquidy but very easy to use…it has a silicony feeling to it and its just melts into your skin….it’s a really nice texture…it’s recommended to use your hands to apply which works fine and is very quick but I feel when I use a buffing brush (Real Techniques Expert Face Brush) I can get more coverage.

REAL TECHNIQUES MIRACLE COMPLEXION SPONGE: I love this sponge! It’s a close dupe to the beauty blender in less than half the price….I haven’t really closely compared the two sponges but all I know that I love this sponge…the shape of it is amazing and it applies foundation flawlessly.

BOURJOIS BEAUTY FULL VOLUME MASCARA: omg this mascara has become holy grail! Shout out to my friend Farah for recommending this! It creates so much volume to my wimpy lashes…it’s quite unbelievable! The wand is quite standard nothing to fancy but I think that’s what works best!

MODELS PREFER INFINITE COLOUR EYE PENCILS: already done a review on these pencils…awesome stuff…check it out here: https://lovecraftnwitchheart.wordpress.com/2014/03/27/mini-review-models-prefer-infinite-colour-eye-pencils/

NYX BLUSH IN PINKY: just a nice pinky rose color…its not entirely matte has a slight sheen to it when you swatch it but on the face it looks matte….just a good everyday blush that I’ve been using a lot especially for work.

MAC SIMMER BLUSH LE: it’s a limited edition blush from the MAC Tropical Taboo collection so I was a bit hesitant to include this but I’ve been using it a lot this month…it’s quite similar to NARS Orgasm and Deep Throat maybe slightly darker.

MAC GEM OF ROSES LIPSTICK LE: another limited edition product from way back…..but I love this lipstick…my go to lipstick for work…a really nice rosy nude with a lustre finish

 SKIN AND HAIR

CETAPHIL GENTLE SKIN CLEANSER: so this one’s for all skin types and it lives up to its name…it’s a very gentle cleanser…it doesn’t lather up or anything but don’t be fooled by that…it actually cleans very well but of course don’t expect to clean off all your makeup…it works best after you’ve actually taken off your makeup.

CETAPHIL MOISTURISING CREAM FOR DRY SENSITIVE SKIN: I’ve also been loving this moisturiser…I’ve got very dry skin and it just gets dryer with the change in weather but this product has really kept my skin hydrated…I also moisturise my hands with it aswell…it’s a very good moisturiser and it’s not greasy or sticky at all…LOVEEE IT!

GARNIER MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER: okay so this is apparently the drugstore dupe for Bioderma which I’ve never tried because it’s super expensive…so when this came out I wanted to give it a shot and I really like it. It’s pretty good at removing all my makeup…definitely needs a bit more when it comes to removing mascara and the thicker foundations i.e. Estee Lauder Double Wear but for the price it’s pretty good…I think its about 12 bucks for the 400 ml bottle compared to Bioderma which is about 40 bucks for a 500 ml bottle.

SCHWARZKOPF (yes I had to stop and check the spelling a couple of times) EXTRA CARE NORMAL BALANCE LEAVE IN TREATMENT: i really like this product for its price. Again shout out to my friend Monica for recommending this…it makes my hair very soft…I use it right after I shower on wet hair and my hairs feels really soft after its dry….pretty good and it’s just 7 bucks!

TONI & GUY NOURISH RECONSTRUCTION MASK: this is actually a really hydrating mask for your hair…It’s a creamy texture and smells pretty good….I do go a little overboard with it because my hair’s just soooo dry it’s like the Sahara! I just leave it on for 5 minutes after I shampoo my hair and then rinse off…and it works quite nicely…again good for the price!

After all that rambling I’ve finally managed to reach the end of this post…I did wanted to include some miscellaneous favorites but I’m sure you’ve had enough by now so until next time!  XO XO

 

 

Warm Gold Holiday Makeup

holidaymakeup

 

Hello my bunnies!

T’is the holiday season and this time of the year is all about the glitz and glamour and GOLD! I love a warm gold smokey eye with a bold red lip and today’s post is all about that! I just bought the Nyx roll on shimmer in Almond today and the color really inspired me to do this look. Its much more shimmery then it’s showing up in the photos and it has some micro glitters as well. I’m quite impressed and might do a review once I get my hands on some more of these!

And let’s not forget that pop of color – whether its on your eyes or your lips…summer is all about the brights! Today’s look features the Australis 10 hour wear eye pencil in Aqua Attack! As you can see it’s a beautiful azure-aqua shade…reminds me of the clear blue sky on a warm summer day!

Two Last Minute Halloween Looks: Pop Art Comic Book Girl and Stretched Lip

image1391750_10153465779055347_805548273_n 1395397_10153465771490347_1447838251_n

Hi my lovelies,

I know it’s been a long time! So many things have been going on in my life but I promise I’ll be back with a bang very soon! Today I’m just doing a quick post. I wasn’t planning on doing anything for halloween because I’m very busy with uni and work! It’s just hectic! But my friend in the photo here convinced me to go to this dorm halloween party in the last minute! The comic book look took about 15 minutes and the stretched lips about 10 minutes! Really easy stuff.

Comic book girl: I used the Nyx Jumbo Pencil in milk for the white bits, a marker style eyeliner pen for the outlines. Rest are just colorful eyeshadows and bright pink lipstick. Oh and I used the jumbo pencil underneath the eyeshadow for it to pop. If you don’t have white pencil or paint for the dots…you can always go for red dots on your face with red lipstick/lip pencil ! Red or blue dots look awesome! (Took inspiration from images in google and Shaaanxo )

Stretched Lip: Used black gel liner for the stretched mouth. Outlined it with lipstick and the teeth are Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk! (inspiration from Promise Phan)

Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you try some outrageous makeup and costumes this year! XO
