HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: HERMIONE GRANGER INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: HERMIONE GRANGER INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

I have finally created a Hermione Granger inspired makeup look to add to my Harry Potter Makeup Series! If you do not know who Hermione is, then you might not know that much about the Harry Potter universe. But you might know that Harry (see my Harry Potter inspired makeup look HERE) has two best friends; a redhead male friend named Ron Weasley (see my Ron Weasley inspired makeup look HERE) and a female friend named Hermione Granger. I create these makeup looks based on what characterizes the person/animal, like red hair, a scar or something like that. Hermione has brown hair and brown eyes, so I definitely need to include brown. But I do not want to do something all brown, that might not be that exciting to see. I, therefore, wanted to include some yellow and red as she is a Gryffindor (see my Gryffindor inspired makeup look HERE). And again, if you do not know what Gryffindor is, then it is one of the four houses at Hogwarts (the school) which has yellow and red as their colors. Okay, I think that is enough explanation of my thoughts behind this look.

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used some translucent powder to set it. I then used the Classic Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to blend out the eyeshadow “Punch Me” from the Morphe x James Charles Artistry Eyeshadow Palette. To darken up the crease, I used the Classic Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to lay down some of the eyeshadow “Benny” from the Morphe x James Charles Artistry Eyeshadow Palette. To blend out the edges of “Benny” I used the same Classic Crease Blender Brush as previously.

To cut the crease, I used the Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation and the Classic Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents. I used the white eyeshadow “Flashback” from the Morphe x James Charles Artistry Eyeshadow Palette to set the cut crease. And now for the “fun” part hahaha. I was inspired to do this kind of eyeliner by the talented Lucy who is known as @lsgmakeup on Instagram. I swear, she makes it look easy. I started out by drawing on the yellow eyeliner. For the yellow eyeliner, I used the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner in Halo. I did not use the applicator it comes with as I prefer one of my own liner brushes (which I got from a craft store) as I can hold on the handle of the brush where ever I want which I cannot do with the NYX eyeliner as over half of the applicator is covered in product. To make sure that the yellow blends nicely into the red eyeliner, I mixed the yellow NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner in “Halo” with the orange one in “Delight”. The reason why I did not just use the orange eyeliner by itself is that I thought it was a bit too dark. For the red eyeliner, I used the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in “I’m Shook”. To clean up the eyeliner, I just used some concealer.

In the blank space where a winged eyeliner normally would be filled in, I wanted to apply some shimmer shadows. In the inner part of the blank space, I applied some of the light gold eyeshadow “Ring Light” and on the outer part, I applied some of the gold eyeshadow “Wig”, both from the Morphe x James Charles Artistry Eyeshadow Palette. To make sure they stayed put, I applied down some lash glue to the blank space before applying the shadows. Looking at the pictures of the makeup look, I now wished I had only used the dark gold eyeshadow.

To tie the look together, I applied both the eyeshadow “Punch Me” and “Benny” underneath my eyes. I used the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in “Golden Light” (*) to highlight underneath my brows and in my inner corner. To finish up the look, I applied the Eylure Lashes in 117 (*, **) and used the MAC Cosmetics In Extreme Dimension Mascara to blend my lashes and the false lashes together.

And there you have it! This is how I created this look – I hope you liked it! I am only going to create four more makeup looks in this Harry Potter Inspired Makeup Series before starting another series. Let me know in the comments if you have something particular you want to see in my upcoming series! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: PHOENIX INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: PHOENIX INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

Okay, so it has been a while since my last Harry Potter Makeup Series post. It has actually been six months since the last one! I don’t know why it took so long but I am ready with a new one for you! This look is inspired by the phoenix. If you don’t know what a phoenix is, then here is what they describe is as in a Harry Potter wiki: “The phoenix is a large swan-sized scarlet bird with red and gold plumage, along with a golden beak and talons, black eyes, and a tail as long as a peacock’s. Its scarlet feathers glow faintly in darkness, while its golden tail feathers are hot to the touch.” The photo to the right is also from the same Harry Potter wiki page. I was mainly inspired by the colours of the phoenix (red, yellow, and orange) so I wanted to create a look containing those three colours. Since it is a bird, I also wanted to include some kind of a wing. If you want to learn how I achieved this look and what products I used, then please keep reading!

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used some translucent setting powder to set it. I then laid down some of the yellow eyeshadow “Bee” from the Morphe x James Charles Artistry Palette with the Classic Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I wanted to do a cut crease so I made sure that the yellow shade was laid down in a somewhat cut crease shape. I then laid down some of the orange eyeshadow “518” from the same Morphe x James Charles Artistry Palette with the Classic Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I placed the orange shade “518” lower than the yellow shade “Bee” to make sure you would be able to see a pretty gradient from orange to yellow.

I then used the Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation and the Classic Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents to do the cut crease. I used a very small detail brush which I got from a craft store to make sure the cut crease was very sharp! The brush has the shape as a liner brush but is a bit smaller. I then used some of the white eyeshadow “Flashback” from the Morphe x James Charles Artistry Palette to set the lid. Where the cut crease cut the eyeshadow, I laid down some of the red eyeshadow “You’re Kidding” from the Morphe x James Charles Artistry Palette with the Real Techniques Accent Brush which I cannot find anywhere but it is very similar in shape to the Classic Detail Round Brush from Coastal Scents. I used the Morphe M149 Brush to blend out the red eyeshadow “You’re Kidding” into the orange “518” eyeshadow. I kept going back and forth between the red “You’re Kidding” and the orange “518” to get the effect I wanted.

I then wanted to create something to resemble a wing where a winged eyeliner normally would go. I started out by drawing some strokes with the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Bright Eyeliner in Halo. Next, I wanted to do some orange strokes but I did not have an eyeliner that was vibrant enough so I mixed some of the orange eyeshadow “518” from the Morphe x James Charles Artistry Palette with some of the Inglot Duraline to create the perfect colour. For the red strokes, I used the NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Barcelona. I wanted the majority of the strokes to be red and only some accent ones beneath the red to be seen as I think a phoenix is more red than orange or yellow. To connect the wing, I used the same NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Barcelona and applied it along the lashline. I then dabbed some translucent powder over the “wing” to mainly set the Barcelona shade as it did not dry down to a state where it would not transfer.

On the lower lashline, I started by laying down some of the yellow “Bee” shade with the same Classic Crease Blender Brush. I then laid down some of the orange “518” with the same Classic Pointed Blender Brush and made sure that the yellow and orange was blended nicely together. I then applied some of the NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Barcelona on my lower waterline and connected it to the line I had made on my lid. I used some of the red “You’re Kidding” to set it on the waterline.

To finish the look, I applied a mixture of the highlights “Golden Dawn”, “White Sand”, and “Snow” from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Glow Kit to my inner corner and brow bone. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the MAC Cosmetics In Extreme Dimension Mascara to my upper lashes.

And that is the completed look! Let me know in the comments what you think about it! I also soon want to wrap up this Harry Potter Inspired Series as I have been doing it for a while now, so I will only be doing about 4-5 more looks. Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: RAVENCLAW INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: RAVENCLAW INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

Yet another look in my Harry Potter Makeup Series where I get inspired by characters etc. from the universe! This time I took the colours of the Ravenclaw house as my inspiration! This is far from my favourite look and while creating this I really wanted to wipe it all off soooo many times. I do not think a half cut crease is hard to do, but the blue shade really bugged me as it came off rather patchy. But I think I made it work. I was tempted to do an actual ravens claw where the wing of my eyeliner is, but I did not want to push my luck so I just went with a normal winged liner.

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (*) to set it. I then went in with the dark blue “Swallow” eyeshadow from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette and used the Base Shadow Brush from Real Techniques (*) to lay down the shadow. I then blended out the edges of “Swallow” with a clean Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I then applied “Swallow” under my lower lashes with the same Base Shadow Brush (*) and blended it out with the Pointed Blender Brush.

I then made a half cut crease using the Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation and the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents. On top of the wet half cut crease, I applied “Déjà Vu” from the Androgyny Palette using the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques to apply it. The reason why I used the dark blue and the bronze shade is that it is the house colours of Ravenclaw. I then made a winged liner using the NYX Matte Liquid Liner (*). I finished up the look by curling my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara to my lashes.

I hope you enjoyed this Ravenclaw inspired makeup look. Please let me know if you have any characters or creatures you want me to be inspired by next! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: ALBUS DUMBLEDORE INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: ALBUS DUMBLEDORE INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

Yet another Harry Potter universe inspired makeup look! This time, I chose to let Albus Dumbledore be my inspiration. Dumbledore was one of the most powerful wizards in the history. I think the character is very inspirational, and I can only understand why you would want to look up to someone like him. Please keep on reading if you are interested in learning how I created this look!

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre. I then went in directly with the shadow Ash Grey from Coastal Scents in my crease and outer corner, and I used the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to pack it on. With the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents, I blended out the edges of Ash Grey with Snow Bunny from Coastal Scents. With the same Pointed Blender Brush, I applied some of Ash Grey to my lower lashline and made sure it was blended out using the same brush and Snow Bunny.

Because Dumbledore has blue eyes, I wanted to include something blue in this look which ended up being my inner corner. I therefore first applied some of Cornflower Blue from Coastal Scents to my inner corner with the Detail Pointed Brush from Coastal Scents. I will later apply some shimmer to it, but I then made a half cut crease using the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents and the Dermacol Foundation. I did not set the concealer with powder but applied the Make Up Store Eyedust in Surface directly onto the wet lid.

I then continued the work on my inner corner, and I applied some of Alpengeist from Coastal Scents which have an icy hue to it, using the same Detail Pointed Brush. To make it even more shimmery, I applied some of the Snow (*) shade from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit (*) on top of Alpengeist using the same brush.

All that is missing now is the elder wand! To make the elder wand as my winged liner, I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics x Manny MUA Velour Liquid Lipstick in the shade Daddy. I applied Daddy as a thin, normal winged liner. When it had dried, I used a bobby pin to create some dots on the wing of the liner. I also used Daddy to create the dots. As you can see on the photo of the elder wand to the right, the “dots” have some tiny black marks on it so I used the NYX Cosmetics Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Scandalous (*) to darken the dots a bit and I then went in with the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner (*) to create the tiny black marks. I then finished up my makeup by curling my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara to my upper lashes.

I enjoy making these Harry Potter Inspired makeup looks! So if you have any recommendations on a character or creatures you would like to see me inspired by, let me know in the comments! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: DOLORES UMBRIDGE INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: DOLORES UMBRIDGE INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

Yay! Finally, another makeup look in my Harry Potter inspired makeup series! This time, I chose to be inspired by one of the evilest characters in the Harry Potter universe, none other than Dolores Umbridge! If you are not familiar with Umbridge or maybe have watched the movies once, then just to help your memory; she is the lady dressed in pink who the Ministry of Magic send of to Hogwarts as the professor in Defence Against the Dark Arts in Harry’s fifth year (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix). She later became High Inquisitor of Hogwarts and then Headmistress. One of the things I remember Umbridge for is how she punished Harry and some of the other students. She used a quill which used the blood of the writer as ink while it carved the written words into the writer’s hand. The first time you see Umbridge use this form of punishment is when Harry dared to contradict the Ministry of Magic’s stance. Umbridge told Harry to write the sentence “I must not tell lies” which has inspired this makeup look. If you are interested in seeing how I created this, then please keep reading!

To start off this look, I primed my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and I used a translucent powder to set it. For the pink shadow, I used the Makeup Revolution All About Pink Blush Palette (*). I started out with laying down the hot pink blush in the middle of the top row with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I then dipped the Blender Crease Brush from Coastal Scents into the lightest blush in the palette (top row, far left) and blended out the edges of the hot pink shadow.

To deepen the crease a bit I used the first shade from the right on the second row from the BH Cosmetics x Carli Bybel Eyeshadow Palette with the Blender Crease Brush. I only used a tiny bit and it might not even be noticeable, but I see it hahaha. For the pink shimmer, I first applied the pink highlight shade from the BH Cosmetics x Carli Bybel Eyeshadow Palette with a sponge tip applicator. As the shimmer did not pop as I wanted them to, I went over it with pink/purple highlight shade from the Makeup Revolution All About Pink Blush Palette (*) with the same sponge tip applicator. I think this look would have looked better with a pink glitter instead, but I do not own one so I had to go with this.

For the liner with the word “lies”, I used the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner in the shade Fire (*). If you want to recreate this look, then try to do the liner before you do the eyeshadow to make sure you know where to write the letters and how to control the liner. I am also not sure if this is how the word should turn if you want people who look at you to be able to read it, but it looks cool haha.

For the lower lashline, I went in with the NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Prague (*) on the waterline and used the hot pink from the blush palette (*) to set it. I do not know if the lip product is eye safe, so I would not recommend doing this! I am such a good role model, aren’t I? I then used the Pointed Blender Brush and the same hot pink shade to blend out the lower lashline.

For highlight, I used the same pink/purple highlight shade from the Makeup Revolution All About Pink Blush Palette (*). On my lashes, I used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara.

I really hope you enjoyed this makeup look, I had a great deal of fun while creating it! Let me know in the comments which characters you want to see next! Thank you for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: RON WEASLEY INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: RON WEASLEY INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

This is my third makeup look in my Harry Potter Inspired Makeup Series. I think these looks are so fun to create as the colours that inspire me often is something I don’t normally would go to. Like in this look where I chose to let Ron Weasley inspire me. Ron became best friends with Harry Potter in their first year at Hogwarts. Ron’s entire family is known for their red hair which inspired me to use the orange shade. Ron also has blue eyes, hence the blue shades in my makeup look.

Before I started playing with any eyeshadow, I primed my lids with my trusty MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used a translucent powder to set it. For this makeup look, I wanted to make a blue crease and use an orange shadow all over the lid. For some extra drama, I wanted to apply a blue, winged eyeliner as well. I started off this look by applying some of the blue shadow Electric Blue from Coastal Scents (which I can’t find on their website.. I don’t know if they have had a clear out as this is not the first shade I can’t find). I used the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to apply the shadow. I knew I wanted to do a cut crease, so I layed down the blue shadow in somewhat the shape I wanted. I then blended out the Electric Blue shadow using the same brush but dipped it into the light blue Cornflower Blue from Coastal Scents (which I again can’t find…) and used small, circular motions.

The next step was to cut the crease! I here used the Dermacol Foundation (I bought mine off eBay) and the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents. When I had cut the crease, I made sure to set the foundation I had used with powder so it would not transfer anywhere. I then applied the orange shade Orange Crush from Coastal Scents (couldn’t be found either…) on my lid using the Accent Brush from Real Techniques. I used this small brush for precision. Next, I used the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner (*) in the shade Sapphire for my winged eyeliner. I have only used this liner for small details on my winged liner before and have not used it for an entire wing until now. If you don’t have a blue eyeliner, then I wouldn’t recommend this one as it is very flaky! I had the same issue with their white eyeliner. You can make it work though. After I made the wing I used some of my Dermacol Foundation (which I use as concealer) to clean up under the wing.

With the Accent Brush from Real Techniques, I layed down some of the shade Electric Blue under my eyes and used the Pointed Blender Brush dipped into Cornflower Blue to blend it out. Then, I finished up my makeup! I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown for my brows and used the NYX Cosmetics Control Freak Eyebrow Gel to keep them in place. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (*) to my lashes and added a couple of the Eylure Individual Lashes (*) to the outer part of my lashes. I highlighted my inner corner with the shade Golden Dawn from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit (*) and I used the shade White Sand from the same kit to highlight my brow bones and my cheekbones.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look as I really enjoyed creating it! I think these colours really pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me experiment a bit more. I hope to see you back soon! xxx

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: GRYFFINDOR INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: GRYFFINDOR INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

This is the second makeup look in my Harry Potter Makeup Series and I cannot tell you enough how much I have been looking forward to creating the next look in the series! This time I chose to create a Gryffindor inspired makeup look as the last look was a Harry Potter inspired one. Gryffindor is one of the four houses at Hogwarts which students like Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, and Hermione Granger was sorted to. The houses are named after the ones who founded Hogwarts; Godric Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, Helga Hufflepuff, and Salazar Slytherin. I chose to be inspired by the colours that represent the Gryffindor house which is red and gold. If you want to see how I used these shades, then keep on reading!

I started off by priming my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used translucent setting powder to set it. The first shade I used for this look was a warm yellow shadow called Cantaloupe Slice from Coastal Scents (which I for some reason can’t find on their website so I can’t link it). I placed the shadow in the crease using the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. Next, I layed down the shadow Red Ochre from the Modern Renaissance Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills (*) all over my lid using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To blend out the edges of Red Ochre, I used the same brush but made sure it was clean before I used it again. I like to wet a cotton pad with micellar water and swirl my brush around on it to get the excess shadow of my brush when I need to use it again. When the brush is clean, I just swirl it on the back of my hand to dry it. With the clean Pointed Blender Brush, I dipped into the shade Charm from the Androgyny Palette from Jeffree Star Cosmetics and blended out Red Ochre with small motions. Every time before I dipped into Charm again, I made sure that the brush hadn’t picked up any red shadow from the lid. If it had, then I would clean it again to make sure I would not have red shadow all over the crease.

I wanted to make a halo eye, so I now applied my concealer (I like the Dermacol Foundation as my concealer) on the lid where I wanted the halo to be (I, unfortunately, forgot to take a picture of this part, but it is literally where you want the gold shadow to be). After I had applied the concealer I used a translucent powder to set it to make sure it didn’t transfer anywhere. For my halo, I used the shadow 18 Karat Gold from Coastal Scents with the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents. To make the gold shadow pop, I wetted my brush with some setting spray. When you have applied your gold shadow you have to make sure that the edges of it are blended. To do this I used the Accent Brush from Real Techniques and some of the Red Ochre shadow. I dipped the tip of the brush into the shadow and then blended out the gold. I then kept going back and forth until I was satisfied with the result.

With the same Accent Brush, I applied a bit of the Red Ochre under my eyes and used the Pointed Blender Brush dipped into Charm to blend it out. Then I finished my makeup! I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. When my mascara had dried, I applied some of the Eylure Individual Lashes (*). For my brows, I used the NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomades (*) in the shades Blonde and Brunette. For my highlight, I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics x MannyMUA Skin Frost in the shade Eclipse.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look as much as I loved creating it! Let me know if you have something from the Harry Potter universe you think I should get my inspiration from! I hope you all have a wonderful week so far! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xxx

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: HARRY POTTER INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: HARRY POTTER INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

I came up with an idea of making a series of Harry Potter inspired makeup looks. I have never seen this done before and I am so excited to get started! I want to be inspired by both characters, animals, the houses and maybe even events? The universe of Harry Potter has always meant a great deal to me which is why I think this should be the first series I do on my blog – I have a lot of other makeup series in mind 😉 So why not start this series off with a makeup look inspired by the man himself? Keep on reading if you want to see how Harry Potter inspired me to create this makeup look.

As you can see on the finished look above, I used black, green, and red. If you know Harry Potter then I am sure you know why I chose these colours, but I would like to explain it as well for the readers that haven’t watched or read Harry Potter yet 😉 The reason I chose black is because he has black hair, I chose green because of his green eyes, and at last I choose red because of his scar. The black eyeshadow looked way darker in real life, and for some reason, it looks kind of blue? I don’t know why but my camera translates my shadows really strange…

I started off by priming my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used some translucent setting powder to set it. I started out with the black shadow. I used the shade Incognito from Coastal Scents and layed it down where I wanted it with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To blend out the edges of Incognito, I used the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents and dipped it into the shade Ash Grey from Coastal Scents to help the black shadow blend.

I wanted to create a spotlight cut crease which I used the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents for with some Dermacol Foundation (I buy mine off eBay, but any full coverage concealer will do). After I have cut the crease I used some translucent powder to set the concealer/foundation to make sure it didn’t transfer. I then went to do the undereye shadow where I layed down some of the shade Incognito with the Accent Brush from Real Techniques for precision and then blended it out with a clean Pointed Blender Brush dipped into Ash Grey.

I wanted the spotlight cut crease to be green to resemble his eyes looking out through his hair. But before I applied the green shadow, I wanted to complete the eyeliner. I wanted to create some kind of a winged eyeliner with a lightening at the end instead of the wing. I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics x MannyMUA Velour Liquid Lipstick in the shade I’m Shook as my liner as it had the perfect colour! I cleaned a wand from an NYX Cosmetics Eyeliner as I needed a thin brush to do the work. Just take your time when doing the lightning and try to imagine it in your head before doing it and draw it in the air. Then I applied some of the shadow Balsam from Coastal Scents with the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents which I wetted with some setting spray. I blended out the edges of Balsam with the Pointed Blender Brush dipped into Ash Gray. If you got some of the Balsam shadow onto your red liner, then just paint it over.

Then I finished up my makeup! I applied some of the Lancôme Le Crayon Khol Eye Liner (*) in black on my upper and lower waterline. Then I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara to my lashes. For my brows, I used the NYX Cosmetics Tame & Frame Brow Pomade in the shades Brunette and Blonde and used the NYX Cosmetics Control Freak Eyebrow Gel to keep them in place. For my highlight, I used the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in the shade Golden Lights (*).

When doing a “heavy” eyeshadow look like this one, I think it is important to weight out the rest of your face as well which is why I always contour and bronze my face when doing this kind of look. If you are new to makeup and are looking for a great contour kit, then I would recommend you take a look at THIS BLOG POST by Elle who blogs at labeaute.org where she gives you 5 great examples of contour kits. Be sure to check her out as she has some top quality content on her blog!

I hope you enjoyed this makeup looked and are just as excited about this new series as I am! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask them in the comments! Let me know who your favourite character from Harry Potter is, I have two; Dumbledore and Snape! I hope to see you back soon xx
