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

TUTORIAL: PINK & BLUE CUT CREASE

TUTORIAL: PINK & BLUE CUT CREASE

By the name of this tutorial you might think this is a tutorial for a very fancy pink and blue cut crease with some mindblown details, but it is actually just a very simple pink and blue cut crease hahahah! I just have been loving the colours lately so I thought I wanted to use them in a makeup look and try to make it as wearable as possible.

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used a translucent powder to set it. For the pink shadow, I used the Revolution Blush Palette in All About Pink (*) which is seen on the left. I started out by laying down some of the shade which I numbered “1” with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I then dipped the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents into the shade I numbered “2” and blended out the edges of “1”. Keep reintensifying the first shadow until you are satisfied. To make sure that the edges are seamless, I used a clean Classic Blender Brush from Coastal Scents which I just swiped over the edges.

Now it is time to cut the crease! I used the Dermacol Foundation (I bought mine off eBay) with the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents and used a translucent setting powder to set the concealer afterwards. I then reintensified the pink shadow just above the concealer with the Pointed Blender Brush with some of the shadow at “1” and “3” mixed together. The next step is to apply a winged eyeliner and here I used the Vivid Brights Eyeliner by NYX Cosmetics in the shade Sapphire (*). If you are in doubt of how to master a winged eyeliner, then I have a full tutorial for an easy winged eyeliner right here!

To finish up the look I applied the highlighter shade numbered “4” from the All About Pink Palette as my highlight. I did my brows using the NYX Cosmetics Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade (*) in the two shades Blonde and Brunette (see a full tutorial on my brows here) and used the NYX Cosmetics Control Freak Eyebrow Gel to keep them in place. For mascara, I used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara and my lip colour is the NYX Cosmetics Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in the shade Silk Indulgent (*).

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look! I really enjoy the mix of pink and cobalt blue and I think it is such a summer look! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon xx

TUTORIAL: CRISP & WISP BROWS

TUTORIAL: CRISP & WISP BROWS

This is my second brow tutorial on my blog and as the last one I did was for the bold and angular brows, this one is for the (in my opinion) more natural crisp and wisp brows. Benefit Cosmetics is right now hosting a competition called “Brow Search” where you have to recreate at least two of their five brow styles; Bold & Angular, Feathered, Crisp & Wisp, Natural, and Straight. Everyone can join this competition! Recreate two (or more) of their brow styles and share a picture of them on Instagram where you tag @benefitcosmetics, #benefitbrows and #benefitbrowsearch. The competition is ending April 30. I hope you will enjoy this tutorial!

To do these brows, I use the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow Pencil in the shade Brown. I always start out by brushing through my brows with a clean spoolie. Then, I go in with the pencil at the top of my brow and draw the top line and afterwards fill in my brow underneath the line I just made. I will then start filling in the part of my brow closest to my eye.

When the biggest part of my brow is done, I move on to the tail. Here I draw a line on the top part of the tail starting from the part of the brow I have already finished to where I want the brow to end. Then, I draw a line from the arch of my brow and connect it to the line I made before. Then I just fill out the eventually blank space between the two lines. At last, I use the NYX Cosmetics Control Freak Eyebrow Gel to keep my brows in place.

I hope you enjoyed this little eyebrow tutorial! Let me know in the comments what eyebrow shape is your favourite! I hope to see you back soon! xxx

TUTORIAL: ROMANTIC & SEDUCTIVE MAKEUP LOOK

TUTORIAL: ROMANTIC & SEDUCTIVE MAKEUP LOOK

Ugh… I don’t know why my brows look so washed out… Anyways.. All I had in mind when doing this look was that I wanted to try the only ColourPop eyeshadow I own and I ended up with this look which I think is very romantic and seductive! My boyfriend thought it looked kind of vampire-like, but I guess they are a bit seductive? I dunno hahahah. Keep reading to find out 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 and used a translucent powder to set it. I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Eyeshadow Palette (read my review HERE) for most parts in this look. I applied the shadow Safe Word in my crease with the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. Next, I layed down the shade Dominatrix with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents and blended it out with the Crease Blender Brush and a bit of Safe Word.

I then dived into the ColourPop Super Shock Eyeshadow in the shade Muse which is a stunning rosy metallic shadow! I used a sponge tip applicator to apply the creme shadow as I didn’t think a brush did it justice and a sponge tip applicator works just as good as a finger but is much more precise! Next, I used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner to apply a winged liner (see my tutorial on a winged eyeliner HERE). I then used the Real Techniques Accent Brush to apply some of the Fetish shadow from the Androgyny Palette and used the Pointed Blender Brush dipped into a bit of Charm to blend it out.

Next, I finished up the makeup look by applying some of the Lancôme Le Crayon Khol Eye Liner (*) on my upper and lower waterline. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*), used the MAC Cosmetics In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara (read my review of the mascara HERE) and applied some of the Eylure Individual Lashes (*). For highlight, I used the shades Amber Gold and Snow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit (*).

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look as I had so much fun creating it for you! I hope you all have a great weekend so far! xx

TUTORIAL: BOLD & ANGULAR BROWS

TUTORIAL: BOLD & ANGULAR BROWS

For long I have wanted to do some tutorials on both full glam brows and more natural brows. Benefit Cosmetics is right now hosting a competition called “Brow Search” where you have to recreate at least two of their five brow styles; Bold & Angular, Feathered, Crisp & Wisp, Natural, and Straight. Everyone can join this competition! Recreate two (or more) of their brow styles and share a picture of them on Instagram where you tag @benefitcosmetics, #benefitbrows and #benefitbrowsearch. The competition is ending April 30. This tutorial is for the Bold & Angular brow style which is my personal favourite!

To create bold and angular brows, I use brow pomade as it gives a nice edge to the brows. I used the NYX Cosmetics Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade (*) in two different shades; Brunette and Blonde. The reason I use two different shades is that one of them is too light and the other one is too dark. When I only use Brunette, I think my brows get a bit too dark. When I only use Blonde, you can clearly see that I have used a brow pomade because my hairs are darker than the pomade. To make the brow pomades creamy, I use the Inglot Duraline as I don’t think the pomades are creamy enough by itself. For brush, I use the Small Angled Liner Brush from Coastal Scents.

I started off by brushing through my brows with a clean spoolie. I had already dropped one drop of Duraline into both pomades so they would be nice and creamy when I should use them. I always use the lightest brow pomade, Blonde, at the… ehh… body of my brow? I don’t know what it is called, but you know, the thickest part of my brow. I always use the darkest brow pomade, Brunette, at the tail of my brow (the slimmest part of my brow). I started with the shade Blonde and worked my way from the top part of the brow to the bottom part and I applied it all the way out to the arch (where the brow bends) of the brow.

I then went in with Brunette on the tail. Here I always start with a straight line down the middle of the tail which will serve as a guideline. I then fill in the tail around the “guideline” and all the way up to the arch where I will blend the two shades together. I then clean up with concealer around my brows, mostly around the tail as that is where I need the most cleaning up to do. To complete the brows, I use the NYX Cosmetics Control Freak Eyebrow Gel to keep my brows in place!

I hope you enjoyed this brow tutorial and I would love to see a lot of you enter the competition as well! I hope you are having a great week so far! 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

TUTORIAL: MIXING METALS GOLD & SILVER EYESHADOW LOOK

TUTORIAL: MIXING METALS GOLD & SILVER EYESHADOW LOOK

If I am honest with you, I actually hate mixing metals, especially with jewellery! I don’t know why but I always have! I used the shades Vermeer and Primavera from the Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills (*) as the silver and gold shades in this look. Vermeer is not straight up silver but it is a very icy shade with a pink undertone while Primavera is a very subtle gold. I came up with this “mixing metals” idea as I often see people using different shades of shimmery shadows on their lid, but it is often different shades of the same colour. If you want to know how I created this look, then keep on reading!

To start of this eyeshadow look, I primed my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used a translucent powder to set it. Next, I dipped straight into the Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette (*) from Anastasia Beverly Hills! The first shade I used was Golden Ochre in my crease with a Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. Next, I dipped the same brush into the shade Raw Sienna from the same palette and placed it a bit lower in my crease. I wanted to make the eyeshadow more warm-toned, so I dipped into the shade Burnt Orange with the Classic Blender Brush from Coastal Scents and lightly swept it over my entire crease. Then I applied some of the shade Raw Sienna to the outer corner of my lid using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to lay down the shadow but used the Crease Blender Brush to blend it out.

Before I started on the shimmery shadows, I layed down some of the shade Raw Sienna under my eyes with the same Pointed Blender Brush and again I used the Crease Blender Brush to blend it out but this time I had dipped the brush into the shade Burnt Orange. To make the shimmery shadows more metallic, I dipped my brush (Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents) into some NYX Cosmetics Dewy Setting Spray (*) which I had sprayed into the cap it comes with. I started by applying the shade Vermeer to about half of my lid, then I used the same brush and applied the shade Primavera to the middle of my eyelid, so I applied it a bit over the Vermeer shadow and into the shade Raw Sienna I had placed on the outer part of my lid. I used the shade Raw Sienna to blend out the edge of Primavera and then I just kept going back and forth until I was happy with the result! To do this I used the Pointed Blender Brush for Raw Sienna and the Pointed Detail Brush for Primavera.

Then I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied the Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara from Essence to my lashes. For my brows, I used the NYX Cosmetics Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade (*) in the shades Blonde and Brunette. And believe it or not, but I actually forgot to put on highlighter!

I hope you enjoyed this makeup tutorial! Let me know in the comments if you are mixing metals or not! I hope to see you back soon! xx

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

TUTORIAL: ROMANTIC VALENTINE’S DAY MAKEUP LOOK

TUTORIAL: ROMANTIC VALENTINE’S DAY MAKEUP LOOK

I am so sorry that I didn’t blog during last week but I was so stressed due to school which is why I only made two Valentine’s look instead of three as I said I would in my last post. I am sorry this look gets online so late, but I ensure you, it is pretty easy. I wanted this look to be a bit more “natural” and more everyday like if you don’t want something wild like my previous look with a dangling heart. If you want to learn how I got this look, then keep on reading.

I started by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used a translucent powder to set it. The first shadow I used was a Coastal Scents Shadow Pot in the shade Redwood which I layed down in the desired shape with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I blended out the edges of Redwood with the Natural Blender Brush from Coastal Scents which did not have any product on it.

With the same Pointed Blender Brush, I dipped into the shade Maroon Berry from Coastal Scents and applied it to the outer V of the eye and blended it out with a Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents without any product on the brush. I now dipped into the shade Vermeer from the Modern Renaissance Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills (*) with a sponge tip applicator and applied it to 3/4 of my lid. I blended out the edge of Vermeer (closest to the outer V) with the Pointed Blender Brush and a tiny dip of Redwood. I then applied some of the Redwood shadow under my eyes with the Pointed Blender Brush and blended it out with the Natural Blender Brush.

I then curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler and applied my favourite mascara, the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. For my brows, I used the NYX Cosmetics Tame & Frame Brow Pomades (*) in the shades Blonde and Brunette and used the NYX Cosmetics Control Freak Eyebrow Gel to keep them in place. For my highlight, I used the pink shade from the Makeup Revolution Highlighter Palette (*).

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look and I wish you all a lovely Valentine’s Day! If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask! I hope to see you around soon! xxx
