Adriana Lima Met Gala 2015 Inspired Vampy Look

IMG_7144

Helllooo My Lovelies!

I know it’s a bit late but as promised here I am with a Adriana Lima Inspired Look from the Met Gala this year. I’ve been sick and then I was in Melbourne and I’m still feeling a bit under the weather but things need to be done! I really enjoyed doing this look and even tried to do a faux bang but failed miserably LOL !

Oh she’s so stunning I can’t even! Obviously our shapes are different. You can barely see her eyelids from the photos but I looked through as many photos I could and got a general idea.

Just a side note: My only regret is I think the highlight looks a bit too silvery/greyish…It wasn’t like that face to face and when I was doing the makeup but maybe I’ll choose a different shade for the highlight if I had to do it again.

~Start off with a grey base all over the lid – Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe

~Go all over the lid with a grey color – Lorac Stone

~Take that grey to the crease and blend – I added Lorac Lilac with Lorac Stone

~ Then apply a light/white matte shade to the brow bone just to keep in check that you are not taking the grey too high up – Lorac Vanilla

~Add a smokey grey tone with a satin or shimmery finish on the lid – I mixed MAC Satin Taupe and Makeup Geek Moonstone

~Don’t forget to blend everything together at the crease with clean brush or with a little bit of the crease color

~Now comes the fun part with the black eyeshadow – firstly with kohl pencil make a wing starting halfway the lash line

~With a smudger brush, start smudging that wing liner until it has a blurred effect

~Then with a crease brush (MAC 217/ Zoeva 227/ Sigma E25) take some black eyeshadow – Makeup Geek Corrupt – make sure you dust it off so that there is no excess product – and start going over that lining blending upward towards the outer crease and outer edge – go slowly and take as little product as possible at a time and build the black

~ Blend it with the lid and crease colors – you can go and add more of the greys if it helps you to blend

~Go with the black kohl pencil on the bottom lash line (NOT THE WATERLINE) and line halfway – leave a space on the inner third part

~With a pencil brush and black eyeshadow, smudge that liner and smoke it out

~Smoke it out farther down with a grey eyeshadow and a crease brush so there are no harsh lines

~On the inner corner, go with a shimmery champagne/pearl highlight – take it upward to the inner lid and on the inner third of the lower lash line

~Apply a little bit of that shimmery highlight shade on the brow bone as well

~Apply a nude or white eyeliner on the water line

~Curl your lashes, apply mascara on top and bottom and lashes and apply falsier! I used Social Eyes Vamp Lashes but to be honest I should’ve gone with the style Delight instead 😦

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

Deep Teal and Mulberry Smokey feat. the LORAC Mega Pro Palette

IMG_3076

 

Hello My Loves!

So I’ve finally gotten around to do a look with the LORAC Mega Pro Palette which has been a super hit among this year’s holiday palettes (and it’s sold out everywhere!). When it came back in stock for the second time in Amazon, I didn’t waste a minute to get my hands on it! I used some of the jewel tones in the palette to create this look as its holiday season. Bare in mind, I used artificial light for my photos and I’m still trying to figure the lights out so I’m not too happy with how the photos came out.

EYES

~After priming my lid, I put Fawn all over my lid

~Then I applied Camel and Sepia on my outer crease and crease with a fluffy brush

~Then with a precise crease brush, I applied Mulberry on my crease dragging it all over to the inner crease

~Then with a wet brush, I applied Deep Teal on my lid

~Then I with a little bit of Mulberry on the crease brush, I blended the outer edges of the lid color

~Then I used Makeup Geek Corrupt (the black in the palette isn’t intense enough) on the outer corner with a short shader brush and start blending it out with a crease brush

~Then I popped Sand and Copper on the tear duct as a highlight and Cream on the brow bone

~I lined my upper lash line with MAC Black Track fluidline and made a wing

~I used the same gel liner on my waterline and bottom lash line and then with pencil brush I smoked the bottom lash line

~I applied Deep Teal on the bottom lash line and then blended the bottom with Camel and Sepia

~I applied mascara and falsies : Social Eyes Vamp eyelashes

~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

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

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!!

Amber Goddess – Warm Copper and Gold Smokey Eye (EID 2014)

IMG_9897

IMG_9899

 

Hi my bunnies!

The reason I decided to name this look ‘Amber Goddess’ is because of the two BEAUTIFUL eyeshadows I used — the stunners of the show – MAC Amber Lights and MakeupGeek Goddess! I’ve been wearing these colors constantly for the last couple of weeks, just changing up the intensity here and there. I also think it’s perfect for the upcoming EID celebrations…most people love to dress up during EID and I think these shades would compliment many different eye colors and outfits! Everybody loves glitz and glam during EID and nothing screams out glamourous more than GOLD!

*PLEASE EXCUSE THOSE UNKEMPT EYEBROWS! I really need to do something about those! Just too lazy ! 😛

EYES

~Start off with MakeupGeek Chickadee and Creme Brule on the crease taking it upward just below the browbone and across to the upper inner corner.

~So the same windshield wiper motion with MakeupGeek Country Girl all across but this time closer to the crease…take the shadow downwards to both the inner and outer corner

~Add MakeupGeek Goddess to both the inner and outer corners layering it over Country Girl (don’t completely cover it – Country Girl will be peeking through slightly)

~Add MAC Amber Lights to the center of the lid…spritz the brush with Fix + or any other mist or water  before applying the shadow to intensify the color

~With a more precise blending brush, take MakeupGeek Mocha and Corrupt and lighty start dabbing and blending in the outer corner taking it slightly up to the crease…don’t take too much in one go…layer it slowly until you get your desired intensity – Remember less is more!

~Add MAC Ricepaper to the browbone as a highlight

~Line your eyes with a gel liner and make a slight wing

~Quickly before the liner sets, take a pencil brush with a little bit of corrupt on it and start layering it over the liner, pushing it upwards as you go and smudging it

~ Tightline the upper lashline

~For the water line, I only added a black eye pencil on the inner and outer bit leaving the middle empty

~In the middle waterline add a gold eye pencil or Amber Lights eyeshadow

~On the bottom lashline do the same thing with a black eyeshadow on the outer and inner corner and MAC Amberlights in the middle

~Blend everything with a blending brush!

~Add Mascara on top and bottom lashesh and Falsies (Miss Adoro Demi Wispies)

WHEW that was a lot to explain! Hopefully I can start doing videos soon so its easier to understand! Fingers Crossed!

Slate Smokey Eye with a pop of Pink Opal

pinkopalsmokey

Hey Hey My Bunnies!

Long time! I’m back in action with this smokey eye that I created using mostly the Lorac Pro Palette with the exception of two eye shadows. The highlight of this look (no pun intended I promise! ^_^) is the Pink Opal pigment by MAC, which is a shimmery white pigment which casts a pinky opalescent duo-chrome, hence the name! The only other eye shadow that I used is Make Up Geek Moondust which is a beautiful shimmery taupy silver but to be honest this look can totally be done without it.

pinkopalsmokeydiagram

 

What to Do:

~ After priming eyes, apply Lorac Mauve in the crease with a fluffly crease brush

~Apply Lorac Pewter on the lid leaving the middle bit empty (you can apply pewter all over n skip next step)

~Apply MUG Moondust on the middle of the lid

~Apply Lorac Slate on the outer corner blending it up to the crease

~Apply Black with a pencil brush to the outer corner and blend it with the Slate color

~Blend the edges with a clean brush and add a little bit of Mauve if needed

~Dab Pink opal lightly in the centre on top of Moondust

~Apply Lorac White to the browbone and then apply Pink Opal at the highest point

~Apply Models Prefer eye pencil in Silver Lining on the water line and drag it slightly down to the lower lash line

~Smudge the liner with Lorac Slate

~Blend the lower lash line with Lorac Mauve using a fluffly crease brush

~Apply Pink Opal as a inner corner highlight and bring it down to 1/3 of the lower lash line

~Line your eyes with black gel liner and make a wing

~I decided to do a thick eyeliner with this look

~Apply mascara to both upper and lower lashes

~Add falsies for a more dramatic effect! These falsies I used are amazing…it’s an Asian brand that I picked up from Malaysia and they are sooo soft!
