Orange orange orange....

Another look i created on the spot and wore out to a party.

Me and my wee Madam (my niece)

Sadly i dont have any more pics but i write down everything i use in these looks for future reference.  I might recreate this look too and do a tutorial on it soon.

Playing with dazzle dusts

Just me playing with Barry M dazzle dust in n.98 and some purple eyeshadows and pink/purple lips.  If you want a tutorial on this look and the next one i will be posting just ask!



Really dont know why the purple is showing up bronze...

Wooo you can see my little nose stud. I got my piercing about 3 weeks ago so thats part of the reason i havent done looks on myself.

Hope you like the look and i may do a tutorial, just ask if you want to know how i did this.

Emma Watson inspired tutorial

Todays look is about 2 weeks old!I keep forgetting to post it.  I took inspiration from both Emma Watson's makeup worn to the HP premier in NYC and the recreation look done by one of my favourite beauty gurus on Youtube - Misschievous.  I hope you like the look!





Face:

Mac Studio Finish concealor
NYC Bronzer

Eyes:

120 palette from ebay - matte black e/s and the yellowey gold
Mac Technakohl eyeliner

Howto:

  • Prime the eyes with a primer prior to eyeshadow application
  • Apply a matte black eyeshadow to the outer half of your eyelid going into the crease
  • Apply a yellow toned gold eyeshadow to the remaining half of the lid and blend the yellow and black together to avoid any harshness.
  • Use a skin coloured eyeshadow to blend out any harsh lines under the brown bone.
  • Using a black gel liner or kohl pencil, colour in your waterline and tightline and apply mascara.
  • Apply foundation and concealor as normal (i didnt use foundation as it was way too hot outside) and a small amount of bronzer to the cheekbones for some warmth to the face.
  • Apply a pink lipgloss and voila!

How to: Apply Blush

Its been a while since I've posted a "how to" blog post so I'm back with another.  I've seen way way way to many disasters out shopping, at school and many other places with people with blush/bronzer applied in the following manner;

Case 1: Clown Cheeks

Case 2: Strip of bright blush

Case 3: Overdone Bronzer

Case 4: Graffitti (not JLS in particular but hearts and whatnot)

To help anyone who either fall into those particular categories or need help on where to apply blusher i have drawn on Asma's face to help (i didn't physically draw on her! i used paint).





In basic terms, you apply your blush inbetween the hollow of your cheekbones to the tops of your cheekbones.  To help you find feel your face to where there is a dip on your cheeks and where there is a higher bit of your cheekbone.  When you find that apply your desired blusher. The finished result with end up like this;


I hope you find this helpful!

Blush Brushes i recommend:

e.l.f stippling brush
e.l.f powder brush
e.l.f bronzing brush
