Midnight | Eye Look

Hello lovelies,

How are you all doing today, i hope you have all had a fabulous weekend.

Today I wanted to step out of my comfort zone a little bit and create a little bit of a darker smokey eye look. As you will know if you have been with me for a while i like really bright summery sort of colours for example peaches and pinks and golds, so this look is definitely a new one for me.

I am 100% not a pro or MUA but i just love makeup and really want to venture out with my makeup journey and start trying new looks. I really hope you enjoy reading and seeing the look i created.

The smokey eye is not something i have had a lot of practice with but i wanted to give it a go. I used a couple of different palettes one called “day to night” by Avon and another from makeup revolution called ” …….”.

For my base i started of with just a simple primer and white shadow to even out my skin tone and create a good base for the rest of my makeup.

To start this look off i went in with a browny sort of colour in my lid which was quite cool toned, i thought by starting off lightly it will be easier to build it up instead of going all in and then not being able to correct it as easily!

After going in with a brown i went in with a darker shade that was almost black but not quite, i applied this onto the outer corners of my eyes making sure to be very gentle. I then blended out that colour a little bit further onto the eyelid and through the crease, this really helped to bring it together and soften the look a little.

Next very lightly i went in with a  black eyeshadow from the Avon palette again, i applied this with a smaller brush to ensure i didn’t pack too much product on. I very lightly put this shade into the outer corners which darkened up the look a lot but i think it definitely added to the smokiness.

Now onto my favourite part of this look, the pop of purple! I wanted to add a but if vibrance to this smokey eye and these revolution pallets are perfect for the job. This palette was only £4 and for the amount of pigment these shades have i think its 100% worth the money.

I used two different glitters from the revolution pallet, the blue and the purple. I think both of these shades are gorgeous and really suit the smokey eye i saw going for. For these glitter shadows i find you get the most pigmentation out of them when they are applied using your finger.

I went in the the blue first in the outer part of my eyelid, i thought because this was a darker shade it would blend nicely out with the darker colours around the outer end of the lid. After this added the purple shade and it really just made the whole look pop, i especially love how it looks underneath on the lower lash line! I really love the vibrancy of it and how well it works alongside the blue.

To finish off this eye look i added a wing using the Seventeen liquid eyeliner and a little bit of Benefit Roller Lash mascara. I think the wing really adds to the look and makes it a little more dramatic.

I think this look would be great for a night out paired with a sparkly top and a pair of black jeans!

I would love to know your thoughts on this look, do you like a smokey eye? Let me know in the comments!

Matte Peachy Eye Look

Hello lovelies,

Today i wanted to show you how I created this particular look, I did a poll on twitter and most of said that they prefer matte eye looks so i want to try out more in the future and thought I would start with this one.

I used the  Revolution Reloaded Neutrals 2 palette I have shown you another look using this palette before and love using it so I thought I would use it again but show you a different sort of look.

I love this look and I am by no means a makeup artist or professional I just really enjoy getting creative and wearing different looks.

Primer

Before I started I applied a little bit of primer onto my lids, the primer I used was also makeup revolution. It is a light porcelain shade so creates a good starting point. I like using this primer as I find it helps my eyeshadow to stay on all day.

Base

As my base colour I used the lightest shade in the palette which is a creamy white colour. As most of the shades in this palette are quite pigmented I didn’t use much to cover my whole eyelid.

All over colour

For the main part of the look I used a peachy pink colour all over my lid. I used a flatter sort of brush so I was able to pack the colour on neatly.

Outer corners

For the outer part of my eyelid I used a slightly darker browny shade to darken up the look a bit and give it some depth. All of the matte shades in this pallet are really pigmented so only needed a small amount on my brush.

Inner corners

For the inner part of my eyelid before I applied any colour i went over it with a bit of concealer to really help the colour stick. I used the collection lasting perfection concealer in the lightest shade they have called ….. After I added the palest shade in the palette on top, I thought it would brighten up my eyes and complete the look.

Finishing touches

After I had finished with the eyeshadow I applied some mascara, this particular one is by Maybelline and is called lash sensational I am sure you have all heard of it. I went around the outside of my eyes with a wet wipe to sharpen up the lines and then put a little bit of powder on after cleaning up the lines.

Spring Evening Eye Look

DSCN1057

Hello lovelies, today I thought i would show you an eye look that I’ve been really enjoying doing throughout the spring.

This look is subtle and I like the warm tones within it, i think that this look is good if you’re going out somewhere on an evening throughout spring or summer where you’re sitting outside. The glitter is lovely when it catches the light and i think that it finishes off the look really well.

The first thing I did to create the look was apply a primer to my eyelids, i used the Freedom Eye Primer. I like this one as it blends out nicely and it leaves a nice base and evens out the skin tone on my eyelids. To blend this out i use my real techniques miracle completion sponge which is great to use on eyelids because you can use the rounded part on the main part of the lid, but then for the inner corner to make sure it’s all blended out i use the flat side as i find it good for getting into corners. I’ve also used the collection lasting perfection concealer underneath my eyes to brighten them up.

For this eye look I’ve used the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette which I’m really loving using, I’ve been using it a lot more as the weather has been getting nice it makes me more motived to make more of an effort with my makeup.

The first shade I use is White Chocolate, I put this all over my lid using the real techniques deluxe crease brush as it’s quite a bit eye brush so it’s easier to get the product across the whole lid quickly. This shade is very pale and it’s just a bit lighter than my skin tone so it give me a good powdered base over the primer.

The next thing I do is get the base shadow brush and swipe it into the shade salted caramel. I love this shade, it’s so wearable and you can build it up gradually to how you like it. I put this colour in the outer corner of my eye and then drag it through the crease.

Using the same brush I dip it into milk chocolate which is a slightly darker shade which I find I have to be careful with as it can come out very pigmented, I put the colour back into the outer corner on top of salted caramel. This darkens the look slightly and adds more warmth.

For the glitter I use my finger as I find I get can the most pigment out of the shadow this way. I use the shade Creme Brule and pat it onto the centre of my lid and towards the inner corner. This shade is really warm and gives the look a really lovely glow which i think looks lovely for this time of year.

In the inner corner I use my finger again to pick up some of the shade Marzipan which is a lot lighter the Creme Brule and I think by adding this to the inner corner of my eye it gives the look a pop and it brightens my eyes up.

I think by adding eyeliner to this look it finishes it off really well, if I’m wearing this look in the day time I might not add the eyeliner as I think it helps to make the look more suitable for the evening as it darkens it up. This eyeliner is from Essence, its a felt liner and i have gone over it with a gel liner that I found in Primark which is really good as its super black and stays on all day/night. The last thing I did was apply some mascara, for this look I’ve used the Maybelline lash sensation.
