Gradient Lips...

The finished look! (Hair down)

Finished look (Hair up) Couldn't decided which one I rathered, haha!

Hey guys, another quick little post!

I bought Kate Moss Lipstick from Rimmel, it's No4, a dark purple, almost black! I bought it to experiment with mainly, then I thought it would be awesome for Halloween. 

I did a quick little look with some gold and lilac colours on the lid, with a mossy green on the lower lash line! I contoured the cheeks, with very dark bronzer and used a lighter BB Cream for the skin, to make the look more dramatic and Halloween-esqe!

To get the gradient lip look, I lined the lips with an eyeko eyeliner pencil in Plum (got to work with what you got, ey?) I then added the Kate Moss lipstick around the edge and I then added Pink Punch from maybelline in the centre of the lip! 

More looks coming soon... Hope you enjoyed :)

I'm a barbie girl...

The Finished Look

Hey Guys...
Yet again i've got inspired by none other than the pixiwoo sisters. Using my Sleek Acid i Divine Pallette and BH Cosmetics Pallette, I re-created the look.

I NEVER wear this much makeup on a daily basis, but then it's always fun to do for a blog post!

As for products I used...
Revlon Colourstay Foundation - Sand Beige
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - Transparent 001
MAC Blush - Pink Swoon
Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil - Hazel
Sleek Acid i Divine Palette - Pink Eyeshadow
BH Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette

Bourjois Volume Clubbing Ultra Black Mascara
MAC Eyeshadow - Carbon, Charcoal Brown
Eylure Naturalites Lashes
Collection 2000 Lipstick - Bubblegum 6

Hope you enjoy this look, it was fun to do, as pink eyeshadow is always a challenge to work with! Think the blonde hair helps too!

Kirsten Stewart Inspired...

The finished look.

Hey Everyone!

My kind friend Catherine, yet again let me borrow her face for me to experiment on, and i got inspired by pixiwoo from youtube to do the Kirsten Stewart inspired look! I love using Catherine as her deep eye sockets and large lids are very easy to work with, as the product can be blended and you still have the highlight space under the brow!
I love recreating these looks and love sharing them on my blog for you guys, to give you inspiration for night outs, weddings, and any other occasions.

As for the products I used, I tried to keep them as close as I could to the pixiwoo tutorial. I will list them below:

Revlon Colourstay Foundation - Sand (was not happy with the flashback from this product)
MAC eyeshadow in Charcoal Brown for the Brows, using Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown for the end of the brows.

Maybelline Gel Eyeliner - Black, all over the lid
MAC eyeshadow - Cranberry, over the black gel liner
Bourjois Delice de Soleil - 12 Fair/Medium Skin, in the crease to blend
Maybelline Gel Eyeliner - Black, to line, waterline, under the eye and tightline
Smashbox Mascara - Black
HD Brows Pallete- used black shade for outer corner of the eye

Bourjois Delice de Soleil Bronzer
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder

Barry M Lipgloss - 11
Collection 2000 Cream Puff - Fairy Cake 3

Thank you for reading...
