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

TUTORIAL: VALENTINE’S DAY DANGLING HEART EYELINER

TUTORIAL: VALENTINE’S DAY DANGLING HEART EYELINER

Valentine’s Day is near us so I wanted to create some makeup looks to inspire you for your own makeup look for Valentine’s Day! This will be the first look out of three. I have here created a red/pink crease, applied a winged eyeliner and added a dangling heart to the wing. This look might take practice, especially if you have shaky hands like me. But as long as you have patience when doing this kind of look, then I am sure you will be able to pull it off! If you are interested in learning how I created this look, then keep on reading!

I started this look off by priming my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and setting it with translucent powder. For eyeshadow, I used the Modern Renaissance Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills (*). I layed down the shadow Red Ochre from the palette in my crease with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents and blended out the edges of it with the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents by dipping it into the shadow Buon Fresco and using circular motions along the edges of the Red Ochre shadow. I did not want to create a cut crease as I wanted the focus to be on the dangling heart, so all I did afterwards was to apply the shadow Tempera all over my lid with the Luxie 209 Large Shader Brush.

Then, I drew my winged eyeliner with the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner (*) and made sure it was long so there would be space enough for the heart. If you are seeking a tutorial on how to master the winged eyeliner, then I have one for you right HERE! The next step is the heart which I used the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner (*) in Fire for. The eyeliner did crack a bit, so if you have another red/pink liquid eyeliner or are interested in buying one, then I don’t think I would suggest this one if you want it to be flawless. You could not see the cracks of it from far away, but up close you can. When drawing the heart, start by imaging how you want it to look and try to draw it in the air so you can get a hang of it. When you feel you are ready, then just jump into it! And as I mentioned before, I would suggest to try it once or twice before the real deal. Especially if you have shaky hands 😉

Now, finish up your makeup! For my brows, I used the NYX Cosmetics Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade (*) in Blonde and used the NYX Cosmetics Control Freak Eyebrow Gel to keep them in place. For my lashes, I started by curling them with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler and then I applied the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara and applied some Eylure Pro-Lash Individual Lashes. For highlight, I used the pink shade from the Makeup Revolution Highlighter Palette and for gloss, I used the Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Diorama.

I hope this makeup look was inspirational! I can’t wait to share the other ones with you! Let me know what you are planning to do on Valentine’s Day! Here in Denmark Valentine’s Day is not something big, but my boyfriend and I are going out for brunch.

TUTORIAL: DARK HALO EYESHADOW LOOK

TUTORIAL: DARK HALO EYESHADOW LOOK

I think a halo eyeshadow look is some of the most beautiful you can create! I don’t know why but there is just something about it! You can use shimmer shades for your halo eyeshadow look – like I did here – or only use matte shadows! I really wanted to use the BH Cosmetics x Shaaanxo Eyeshadow Palette (I used the old one) and thought the shades were perfect for a halo eye! If you want to know how I created this look, then keep on reading!

I started with priming my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and setting it with translucent powder. Then I layed down some of the shadow Silhouette (if you have the old palette like me, then you can find the shade names on her new The Remix palette) using the  Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To blend out the edges of Silhouette, I lightly dipped the Natural Blender Brush from Coastal Scents into the shade Terracotta and used small circular motions. Take your time on this step.

With the Pointed Blender Brush again, I applied some of the Silhouette shade under my eyes and used the Natural Blender Brush dipped into Terracotta to blend it out. So I actually just mimicked what I just had done on my lid. With a sponge tip applicator, I apply the shade Avocado on my lid. I start out wide closest to my lashes and then I go smaller the closer I get to my crease. Since Avocado didn’t give me enough, I applied some of the shade Holy Grail on the very centre of Avocado using a sponge tip applicator again.

Now finish up your makeup! For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. For highlight, I used the Jeffree Star Skin Frost in the shade Crystal Ball.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask!

Tutorial: Natural Everyday Eyeshadow Look

Tutorial: Natural Everyday Eyeshadow Look

Even though colourful and wild eyeshadows look are fun and beautiful, it might not be what we want to wear every day and we might not have the time to be as creative as we want if we are going to school or to work. Here, I want to show you an easy and natural everyday look which didn’t take long to create! If you want to learn how to create this look, then keep on reading!

Before I applied any eyeshadow, I primed my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot and used a translucent powder to set it. Next, I applied the shadow Kokomo Cafe from Coastal Scents into my crease using the Natural Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To deepen up the crease, I applied some of the shadow Barista, again from Coastal Scents, with the same brush.

Now, I will apply some white shadow (I used the shade Snow Bunny from Coastal Scents) to 3/4 of the lid starting from the inner corner of the eye using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To deepen up the outer part of the eye, I used some of the Barista shade again with the same Pointed Blender Brush as I used with the white shadow. Make sure the brown and white shade are blended nicely together where they meet on the lid. With the same Pointed Blender Brush, I applied some Barista lightly under my eye as well.

Now, finish up your makeup! For brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara which is my current obsession! At last, I used the Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Crystal Ball as my highlight.

I hope you enjoyed this natural makeup look! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask! I hope you all had a wonderful start to the new year!

Tutorial: 2018 Winged Eyeliner

Tutorial: 2018 Winged Eyeliner

I thought I would do another makeup look for New Year’s Eve to give you some more inspiration. If you are looking for a fun makeup look to celebrate the new year, then what is better than this 2018 winged liner? If you are interested in which products I have used and how to do it, then keep on reading!

To start off this look I created a long wined liner as we want to have space enough to write “2018”. If you are in doubt of how to achieve a winged liner, then take a look at this easy tutorial I have made for you right here! For the eyeliner, I have used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner. Next, I write “2018” on the wing of the eyeliner. You want to make sure that the people who are looking at you are able to read the “2018”. I used the same eyeliner for this.

To make this look a bit more festive, I applied some gold on top of some of the black liner. You could use a gold eyeliner for this, but as I didn’t have one, I used the shade Golden Dawn from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit and mixed it with a bit of Inglot Duraline to transform it into a liquid and use it as my gold liner. To apply it, I used a toothpick as I didn’t have any brush which was small enough to give me the precision I would like. With the duraline, you can transform any shadow into a liquid and use it as a liner! So if you want this look to match your outfit, then simply use another glittery shadow or highlighter.

Now it is time to finish up your makeup! For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown. For mascara, I used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara and I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost in Eclipse for my highlight.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask! I wish you all a Happy New Year!

Tutorial: Spotlight Cut Crease for New Year’s Eve

Tutorial: Spotlight Cut Crease for New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner which is why I wanted to give you some inspiration for the perfect glam look for the occasion! I have created a spotlight cut crease using the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Eyeshadow Palette. If you are interested in a full review of this palette, then you can read it all right here! If you want to learn how I created this look, then keep on reading!

As mentioned, I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette. I started to lay down the shadow Swallow from the palette using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. Here I don’t blend anything I just place the shadow in the shape I want but don’t bring it up too high as you, of course, want to blend out the edges. For that, we will use a lighter shade so I slightly dip my Blender Brush from Coastal Scents into the shadow Poison and with small circular motions, I blend out the edges.

To make the cut crease I use the LA Girl Pro Conceal in the shade Porcelain. For brush, I use the Small Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents. After I have layed down the concealer, I set it with a bit of translucent powder to make sure it doesn’t transfer anywhere. On top of the concealer, I lay down some of the shadow Frosting using a sponge tip applicator. At the places I know I need to be precise, I use the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents. I especially want to be precise at the top of the cut crease and around the edges as I want to make sure it looks blended into the blue shade. To complete the lid, I applied a thin line of black eyeliner as close to my upper lashline as possible. I here used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner. To complete the eyeshadow, I applied some of the Swallow shade under my lower lashline with the Pointed Blender Brush and blended out the edges using the Blender Brush.

Now, finish up your makeup! For my lashes I used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown. For my highlight, I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost in the shade Eclipse.

I hope you enjoyed this look! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask! I hope you all have a wonderful New Year! Be careful! xx

Tutorial: Winged Eyeliner with Christmas Lights

Tutorial: Winged Eyeliner with Christmas Lights

A couple of days ago I showed you a full glam makeup look which I think would be stunning for the Holidays! But now, I need to share a more fun and creative makeup look with you, which I also think would be brilliant to wear for the Holidays! I have created a green winged liner and “decorated” it with Christmas lights! If this isn’t appropriate for the Holidays, then I don’t know what is hahahah! For this look, I have actually just used a bunch of different eyeliners! I made my lights a lot of different colours but you can, of course, chose the colours you want! If you are interested in knowing how to create this look, then keep on reading!

Before I started with all the liners, I applied some brown shadow to my crease to give my eyes some dimension. I used the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in the shade Kokomo Cafe and used the Natural Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to apply it. Now to the fun part! For the green winged liner, I used the Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel in 86 and used the Small Angled Liner Brush from Coastal Scents to do the liner. If you are unsure of how to master a winged eyeliner, then I have made an easy tutorial for you right HERE!

Now it is time to make the black swirl around the winged eyeliner. This might look scary, but believe me; if you have steady hands then this is not going to be a problem for you! I have really shaky hands and I made it! I think the toughest part for me and my shaky hands was to make the lights as I am concentrating so hard and trying not to shake which just makes me shake even more! Don’t be frightened, start the swirl on top of the liner and then do little by little. No one says you have to make it in one go so take your time and visualise the next part of the swirl before doing it. I have here used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner.

For the “lights” you can choose any colours you want! I searched for “Christmas lights” on google and saw a lot of lights with this pattern so that is what I have recreated. I have used the NYX Vivid Brights Liners in the shades Halo, Delight, Fire, Envy, and Sapphire. Now all you have to do is finish up your makeup! For my mascara, I have used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. For my brows, I have used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in Brown and I used the shade White Sand from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit as my highlight.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on this funny makeup look! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask! I wish you all Happy Holidays! xxx

Tutorial: Grey and Silver Glitter Cut Crease

Tutorial: Grey and Silver Glitter Cut Crease

The Holidays are some of the most festive days of the year! I wanted to make a very festive look for the Holidays to give you some inspiration of what you could do yourself. I have made this silver glitter cut crease using the Coastal Scents Hot Pots and the Make Up Store Eyedust in Surface. The Coastal Scents Hot Pots are very affordable single shadows with almost 400 different to choose from, if you are interested, you can read my full review of the Hot Pots right here! If you want to learn how to create this look yourself, then keep on reading!

Before I use any eyeshadow, I will start off by priming my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre and set it with translucent powder. I will use the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Kokomo Cafe as my transition shade and apply it in the crease with the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush. The next step is optional, but to make sure I don’t blend the shadows too high, I will apply some translucent powder around the eyes in the shape I want the eyeshadow. For this, I use the Luxie Large Shader Brush.

Next, I will go into the crease with the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Ash Grey with the same Deluxe Crease Brush as before. To deepen up the crease, I will lay down some of the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Incognito with the Coastal Scents Pointed Blender Brush and blend it out using the Deluxe Crease Brush. To help the dark shadow blend, you can dip your brush into the Ash Grey shadow again. If you applied some of the translucent powder around your eyes, then now is the time to remove it with circular motions which will make sure that the edges of the shadow are blended.

Now it is time to cut the crease! I use the LA Girl Pro Conceal in the shade Porcelain with the Coastal Scents Small Foundation Concealer Brush. A good tip for during a cut crease is to start by applying the concealer as close to your upper lashes as possible and then slightly look up, then you will know where your cut crease should go. Before I apply any glitter I made a winged eyeliner (see my easy tutorial for a winged eyeliner right here!) using the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner.

Now I will apply the Make Up Store Eye Dust in the shade Surface using a sponge tip applicator. Reapply the liner anywhere the glitter might have been applied. Touch up the Incognito shadow around the cut crease with the Pointed Blender Brush. Be sure to use a light hand. Now finish up your makeup! For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in Brown. For my lashes, I used the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and for my highlight, I used the shade Snow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit. On my lips, I am wearing the ColourPop Lippie Pencil in Love Bug and Jeffree Star Cosmetics Lip Ammunition in Unicorn Blood.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and remember, if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask! I wish you all Happy Holidays!

Tutorial: Winged Eyeliner

Tutorial: Winged Eyeliner

A winged eyeliner can be a great touch to add to a lot of different makeup looks. If you are new to makeup it might be hard to get it right and maybe you don’t know how to start or how to do it which is why I wanted to create a short step by step tutorial on how I do my winged eyeliner. You can use these basic steps and alter it the way you want so the shape and thickness of the wing suit your eye the best.

For this tutorial, I have used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner, but you can use any type of eyeliner you want and feel the most comfortable with. I start by applying my eyeliner to my lashline from the inner corner to 3/4 of the lashline. I don’t go all the way out as I don’t know where my wing will be yet. I now make the first line of the wing. I start the line from where I want the wing to end and then I drag it towards my eye where I want the wing to end. It doesn’t have to be perfect as we always can clean it up later!

I will now make the top line of the wing. As we want the wing to be sharp, I will start this line a bit further down rather than at the top of the bottom line of the wing we just made before. It is best to make your wing thin at first as you always can make it thicker, but if you have eyeshadow on you can’t really use concealer to make the wing thinner. So start out thin and then go thicker if you want. Now fill in the wing.

Now it is time to clean up! I start by cleaning up the top part of the wing; I will fill in any gaps and make the wing and the liner on the lashline look more fluent by thickening the eyeliner at the lashline where the wing starts. To clean up the bottom part of the wing, I will use my Dermacol Foundation (which I use as a concealer) and my Pointed Detailer Brush from Real Techniques. I will go from the inner part of my eye and out to get a clean line. After you have used concealer to perfect the wing, remember to blend it out.

If you want a longer wing then start the first line of the wing further away from your eye. If you want a thicker wing then make it thicker by applying more eyeliner to the top part of the wing and at the lashline.

Now apply the rest of your makeup! For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown. For mascara, I used the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. For my highlight, I used the shade Snow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit. If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask!

Tutorial: Matte orange eyeshadow look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

Tutorial: Matte orange eyeshadow look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

The Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills is one of my favourite palettes! I adore all of the shades that it comes with (especially Buon Fresco) and I love how pigmented they are and how easy the shadows are to work with. I think you can create an endless amount of looks with this palette. Here I have created an easy matte orange eyeshadow look, keep on reading if you want to learn how I made this look using the palette.

To start off I primed my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and I am setting my primer with some translucent powder to make sure the shadows I put on top will blend nicely. The first shade I am using from the Modern Renaissance palette is Burnt Orange. I use the Deluxe Crease Brush from Real Techniques to apply the shadow to my crease.

The next step is optional. I like to place some translucent powder around my eye where I will be applying eyeshadow to make sure I keep the shape I want and don’t blend the shadow too high. I use the Large Shader Brush from Luxie to apply the translucent powder.

Then I place the shade Realgar on my lid using the Shading Brush from Real Techniques. I will blend out the edges of Realgar with the Deluxe Crease Brush again. To give the eye some more dimension I will darken the outer V with the shade Cyprus Umber using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. Only apply a tiny amount of product to your brush so you can make sure it doesn’t get too dark.

If you have applied the translucent powder around your eyes, then now is the time to remove it. I will use the same Large Shader Brush to remove the powder. I go in with small circular motions which will make sure that the edges of the eyeshadow are blended.

For the lower lashline, I will start by applying some of the shade Realgar with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I will wipe my brush clean and use the shade Golden Ochre to buff it out. The next step is also optional. I applied a wing eyeliner but you can stop here and finish your makeup. I used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner for my wing. It is an okay eyeliner but I think the applicator is a bit too big to get a sharp wing as I want.

You can now finish your makeup. For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Auto Eye Brow in Brown. I curled my lashes with the Eylure London Heated Eyelash Curler and used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. For my browbone and inner corner highlight, I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics x MannyMUA Skin Frost in the shade Eclipse and applied it with the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents. I lined my lips with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Pencil and used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Lip Ammunition in the shade Celebrity Skin.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look – let me know if you’ve tried to recreate it! You can read my full review and see swatches of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette right here!
