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

ACHIEVE FIERCE BROWS WITH BENEFIT COSMETICS

ACHIEVE FIERCE BROWS WITH BENEFIT COSMETICS

 

 

Fierce brows? Yes, please! I love strongly defined brows. I definitely love how brow pomades make my brows look. I have recently been gifted a lot of brow products by Benefit Cosmetics, and I must say… I am in love! My favourite of their brow products (that I have tried) are the ones I am displaying for you in the video above! It is the ka-BROW! Eyebrow Cream Gel Colour and the Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Tinted Eyebrow Gel both in the shade 3.

I am amazed about how little product of the ka-BROW you need to get pay-off. A little does really go a long way! It is a stiffer product which is why I like to use the applicator it comes with as my own angled brush is a bit too soft to pick up the product. But I really like it with the applicator! The product applies so easily and I could imagine it would last a lifetime with that amount I am using!

The Gimme Brow+ is a brow gel which contains microfibers that will adhere to your skin and hairs and thereby create a fuller brow. I am normally not that into tinted brow gels as I think they give my brows a weird colour. But this one… Gosh, I love how it looks hahaha. It makes the front of my brows look even fuller and darker which ties my brow together as I do not apply brow pomade to the front of my brow so it is nice to have something that gives it a bit of definition. If you do not want to or have time to apply much to your brows – or do not need to – then this product is wonderful as well! It makes your natural brows look so gorgeous and full while keeping them in place!

Please, let me know in the comments what products you use for your brows if any! I would love to know! Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed the mini tutorial 😉 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

TUTORIAL: EASY CHRISTMAS MAKEUP LOOK

TUTORIAL: EASY CHRISTMAS MAKEUP LOOK

Christmas is just around the corner! The most of us tend to gather around with friends and family, which is why you might not want to use all of your time on your makeup, but still, want to look cute. For this reason, I have created this tutorial for you; an easy makeup look which only requires two eyeshadows! You can use whatever colour of eyeshadow and glitter, this was just what I would feel comfortable in. Keep scrolling if you want to see the full makeup pictorial and find out which products I used!

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre. Then I used the Pointed Brush from Coastal Scents to lay down the eyeshadow “Dominatrix” (*) from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette (*). To blend out the edges of “Dominatrix” (*) I used a clean Crease Brush from Coastal Scents. For the gold glitter on the lid, I used the shade “Golden Dawn” (*) from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow – Glow Kit (*). To apply “Golden Dawn” (*) I used my finger to get a more sparse effect as I wanted a more subtle look. I gently swept a clean Crease Brush from Coastal Scents through my crease to distribute any glitter particles there. I did not want them gone, but I wanted a sort of faded effect of the glitter if that makes sense.

As I wanted to apply some lashes, I applied a thin eyeliner across my eyelid with the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner (*). If you are not intending on wearing lashes, then you can skip this step. Before I applied my mascara, I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and then applied some of the MAC Cosmetics In Extreme Dimension Mascara to my lashes. For my false lashes, I went with the Eylure Texture Lashes 117 (*, **). After I had applied the lashes, I used the Lancôme Le Crayon Khol Eye Liner (*) to tight line on my upper waterline.


And voila! How easy is this?! In Denmark, we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve where we eat delicious food, sing around the Christmas tree, and open presents. I definitely think that I myself are going to recreate this eyeshadow look on Christmas eve, maybe I will try with a silver glitter this time and a pink nude lipstick! Thank you so much for reading, I wish you all some happy holidays! Let me know what your favourite part is about Christmas! xx

TUTORIAL: SPOOKY HALLOWEEN GHOST WINGED LINER

TUTORIAL: SPOOKY HALLOWEEN GHOST WINGED LINER

I wanted to do a Halloween makeup tutorial this year. I have seen a lot of full face Halloween makeup looks, but not that many “subtle” looks which don’t include the entire face. This is why I wanted to create a Halloween makeup look which is very wearable if you don’t want to go all out. I really love how this turned out and I hope you guys love it as well! If you are interested in learning how to recreate this, then please keep reading!

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre and used the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (*) to set it. I then layed down some of the “Orange Crush” eyeshadow from Coastal Scents with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To blend out “Orange Crush”, I used the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents lightly dipped into “Charm” (*) from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette (*). After I was satisfied with the blending, I went in and created a cut crease using the Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation and the Real Techniques Detailer Brush (*). I used some of the “Tempera” (*) eyeshadow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette (*) to set the wet cut crease. You can also use transparent powder if you want, I just wanted the subtle shimmer the “Tempera” (*) eyeshadow has.

After I had set the cut crease, I reintensified the orange eyeshadow by going back in with “Orange Crush” on the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques and blended it out with a clean Pointed Blender Brush. To deepen up the orange eyeshadow a bit, I went in with “Realgar” (*) from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette (*) with the same Smudge Brush. I only applied a tiny bit at a time. The next step is to create the ghost! I used the NYX Cosmetics White Liquid Liner (*) for this part, and I started out by laying down the white eyeliner as it is easier than covering up black eyeliner. When I had the shape of the ghost I wanted, the next step would be to outline it with a black eyeliner. But before I did that, I applied some of the Lancôme Le Crayon Khol Eyeliner (*) to my upper and lower waterline. The reason I did this before applying the outline with the liquid eyeliner, was because I then would be able to see where to apply the liquid liner at my inner corner. I used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner (*) to make the outline.

To finish up my lower lashline, I applied a bit of the “Incognito” eyeshadow from Coastal Scents to smudge out the liner on my waterline a bit. I used a clean Smudge Brush to apply it. I then blended out the black eyeshadow with the Pointed Blender Brush dipped into “Orange Crush”. To finish up my look, I applied a mixture of the two highlighters “Snow” (*) and “Golden Dawn” (*) from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit (*) to my browbone and inner corner. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied the Eylure The Luxe Collection False Eyelashes in Bauble (*, **) and finished it off with some of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara.

I am so in love with how this turned out! If you are not that keen on orange, then you can, of course, go for another colour for the cut crease. A purple cut crease would look great as well and still keep it in the colours of Halloween! Please let me know if you are going to dress up for this Halloween, and if you are, then please tell me what! Halloween is not that big in Denmark so I am not going to get dressed up in anything spooky. Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

TUTORIAL: ORANGE & GREEN CLEAN CUT CREASE

TUTORIAL: ORANGE & GREEN CLEAN CUT CREASE

I will be the first one to say that I am a bit tired of doing summery eyeshadow looks. So since fall is just around the corner, I wanted to start early on the fall eyeshadow looks and this will be the first one! I was inspired to do this look by @alicekingmakeup but I wanted to use some more fall appropriate colours even though I still think you can use the colours she used for fall. I do not think this is the typical kind of a cut crease which is why I chose to call this look a clean cut crease. I don’t know if that makes sense haha. Please keep on reading if you want to learn how I created this look.

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre and used the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (*) to set it. I then went in with the eyeshadow “Charm” from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette with the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I applied “Charm” in the shape I wanted my eyeshadow to be. I made sure the edges of “Charm” was blended with a clean Classic Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I then made the cut crease using the LA Girl Pro Conceal and the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents and a brush I don’t know where’s from but it looks something like the Fine Liner Brush from Coastal Scents but I know it is not. I used the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (*) to set the cut crease.

I then applied the “Military” eyeshadow from the Androgyny Palette around the cut crease using the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques and blended it out with both the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents and the Base Shadow Brush from Real Techniques (*). You do not need to be careful with the blending as you can clean up the cut crease again. When I was happy with the blending, I used the same Smudge Brush to apply the eyeshadow “Pinehurst” from Coastal Scents as close to the cut crease as possible and made sure I did not apply too much. I used the Pointed Blender Brush to blend out any harsh edges of “Pinehurst“. I then cleaned up the edges of the cut crease with the Fine Liner Brush and some of the LA Girl Pro Conceal.

I then finished up the look by applying some of the “White Sand” and “Golden Dawn” from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit to my inner corner and brow bone. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (*) to my upper lashes. I felt that some false eyelashes were appropriate for this look, so I applied the Eylure Luxe False Lashes in Solitaire (*, **).

I really love how this look turned out! I can’t believe summer has already passed! I am so ready for all of the upcoming fall looks! Let me know if you have any specific looks or ideas you think could be interesting for fall! 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

TUTORIAL: MONARCH BUTTERFLY EYES

TUTORIAL: MONARCH BUTTERFLY EYES

This might not be the most wearable makeup look you have ever seen. I was inspired by @arielmakeup on Instagram and the monarch butterfly to create this look. @arielmakeup made a look inspired by a blue butterfly where mine is inspired by the orange monarch butterfly. I wanted to create a look inspired by the monarch butterfly as it is one of the most common butterflies here in Denmark. I then found the work of @arielmakeup which inspired me even more to do it! If you want to see how I created this look, then please keep on reading!

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used some of the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (*) to set it. I used the monarch butterfly on the right as my inspiration. I outlined the wing on my lids using the Lancôme Le Crayon Khol Eyeliner in Black (*) as it is easier to cover up with concealer than a liquid eyeliner if you want to change anything. You can use any black pencil eyeliner, this was just the first one I grabbed. The outline does not have to be pretty or precise as you can clean it up afterwards. But you do want to make sure that your outline isn’t too thick. When I was happy with the outline of the wing, I used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner (*) to draw on top of the initial outline and to make some of the thicker lines in the wing.

Now it is time to apply some eyeshadow. As you can see in the photo I used as inspiration/guideline, the wing of the butterfly is not all one colour. Near the body of the butterfly, the wing starts out yellow, it then transitions into an orange shade, then a deep orange which at last turns into a red-orange. I started out by applying some of the Bright Yellow eyeshadow from Coastal Scents to the inner part of my lid using the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents to apply it. I used the Pointed Detail Brush to apply all of the eyeshadows on the lid as I wanted to be precise. I then applied the Orange Crush eyeshadow from Coastal Scents to the rest of the wing and made sure it was blended into the yellow eyeshadow I first applied. To deepen up the outer part of the wing I used some eyeshadows from the Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills (*). I applied some of the eyeshadow Realgar to the part which is a darker orange. I then went into both Red Ochre and Love Letter for the parts which are redder. I then lightly brushed the Classic Blender Brush from Coastal Scents over the liner parts to get excess eyeshadow off. In some parts, I also reapplied the liquid eyeliner (*).

Next, I applied some of the Matte Liquid Liner (*) as an actual eyeliner at my upper lashes. I did this so the lines in the wings would have something to connect to. I then used the same Matte Liquid Liner (*) to make the thinner lines of the wing. I tried to somewhat follow the pattern of the photo, but you can do it however you want. To finish up the wing, I applied some white and yellow dots with a somewhat similar placement as seen in the photo. I used the NYX Cosmetics White Liquid Liner (*) and the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner in Halo (*).

To complete the look, I went in with Orange Crush on my lower lashline with the Pointed Detail Brush and used some of Bright Yellow and the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to blend it out. I used the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) to curl my lashes and applied some of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara.

So there you have it! This look might be my favourite look I have ever done! I really loved doing it even though it took a lot of time and patience. If you ever try to recreate this, then please share it on Instagram and tag me @simonehjulmand as I would love to see your take on it! Let me know in the comments if you like these more creative and graphic makeup looks! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

TUTORIAL: HEATWAVE MAKEUP LOOK

TUTORIAL: HEATWAVE MAKEUP LOOK

It has been a hot summer this year! In Denmark, we have had a much hotter summer than witnessed in many years due to the heatwave. I wanted to do something “inspired by” the heatwave and I wanted to do a fairly wearable look as my last ones have been not so wearable but more creative. If you want to learn how I created this look, then please keep on reading!

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used the eyeshadow Chamois Nude from Coastal Scents to set it. I then applied some of the Warm Taupe eyeshadow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette (*) to my crease with the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. With the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents, I layed down some of the Cyprus Umber eyeshadow from the Modern Renaissance Palette (*) on my lid. I blended out the edges of Cyprus Umber with the Crease Blender Brush and a bit of Warm Taupe. When the edges of Cyprus Umber were blended out, I lightly applied some of the Burnt Orange eyeshadow from the Modern Renaissance Palette (*) to my crease with the Crease Blender Brush.

I cleaned the Pointed Blender Brush and applied some of the Warm Taupe eyeshadow to my lower lashline. I cleaned up the edges of the shadow with the Chamois Nude shadow and the Luxie 209 Large Shader Eye Brush. With the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques, I applied some of the Atomic Apricot from Coastal Scents to the middle of my lid. On the very centre of the orange shimmer shadow I just applied, I layed down some of the 18 Karat Gold from Coastal Scents using a sponge-tip applicator.

I then finished up the look by applying some of the NYX Cosmetics Wonder Pencil in Light (*) to my waterline. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Essence Cosmetics Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara to my upper lashes.

Even though the weather has been extremely hot this summer, I hope you enjoyed it anyway! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

TUTORIAL: SUMMERTIME SPOTLIGHT CUT CREASE

TUTORIAL: SUMMERTIME SPOTLIGHT CUT CREASE

I can not believe that it is August already! There is only one month left of the official summer months which makes me so sad as summer is my favourite time of the year. I want to keep making summery makeup looks for a while, so I wanted this to be a very colourful one. This does not only remind me of summer but also of the 80’s because of the funky colours hahaha. I hope you enjoy this colourful makeup 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 on top of the unset primer with a pink shadow. I used the blush to the right on the bottom row from the Makeup Revolution Blush Palette All About Pink which I no longer can find on their website, so I don’t know if they don’t make it anymore, but I found it somewhere else (linked on the name of the item) if you are interested. I used the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to pack on the pink shadow. I used a piece of paper on the outer edge of my eye to get the sharp edge. I will not keep the sharp edge for long as it just was to get the right shape of the shadow. I then blended out the edges of the pink shadow with the lightest blush from the same Blush Palette (the one to the left on the top row) with the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. With the same Pointed Blender Brush, I applied some of the same pink blush under my lower lashes and I blended it out with the same Crease Blender Brush and a bit of the lightest blush.

On my inner corner, I applied some of the Bright Yellow eyeshadow from Coastal Scents with the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents. I then went on to do the spotlight cut crease. I used the LA Girl Pro Conceal in Porcelain and the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents to carve it out. I then applied Blue Zircon from Coastal Scents on top of the still wet concealer with the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques. Before dipping into the Blue Zircon eyeshadow, I used some NYX Cosmetics Setting Spray with Dewy Finish (*) to wet my brush so the shimmery eyeshadow would go on even more vibrant than if I applied it dry.

To complete the makeup look I applied some of White Sand (*) from the Ultimate Glow Kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills (*) on the yellow inner corner to make it pop even more. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (*) to my upper lashes. I also applied some of the NYX Cosmetics Wonder Pencil in Light (*) on my waterline to brighten up my eyes.

I hope you enjoyed this rather 80’s look hahaha. I think it was so fun creating it with all of these bright colours! Let me know if this is something you would dare to wear out! I don’t think I would wear an eye look like this unless it was for something like a party where it would fit in. Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx
