Sultry Purple – Make-Up Look

Hello Everyone,

A few months ago I posted this picture of myself on Instagram, this was me all dolled up before a wedding I attended with my boyfriend. I haven’t had many weddings this year, and it was a lovely opportunity to look and feel my best. The dress I wore was a simple but yet lovely purple dress, which got me inspired to do this look.  Everyone I know loved this look, and my new colleagues being  still unaware that I am an artist myself, thought I went to a professional make-up artist. I was however very flattered as it means I did a good job 🙂 2

  •  The eyes are the main focus of this look. I wanted to create a nice sultry smokey eyes, but still having a soft feel to it all.  Make up can entice you, but it can also put you off especially when it’s not done the right way.
  • I made sure that the inner corner of the eyes where a light colour, then mixed a couple of purple and violet shades together to create a nice mid tone colour. Finishing off with a deeper purple colour and black shadow and blend it all with a brown shadow in between the crease and the brow bone.
  • Of course a nicely done winged eyeliner, some mascara and fake lashes will complete the eyes.
  • For the lips I used a nude pink tone lip liner and lipstick and as for the cheeks a peachy toned blusher does wonders with a purple look.

Beyonce Inspired – Make-up look

Hey guys :),

I thought before leaving for a week, I will do a make-up look for you guys. I wish to thank you all for the support I’ve been having and so I will do my best to post something next week if I get some internet and let you know how I will be doing. But if not, you can still follow me on Instagram,  there is the link to it on the right.

As you might have already noticed, this look is inspired by a true talented singer, performer and entrepreneur, Beyonce. I have been a fan of hers since Destiny’s child launched their first single No No No. Women at that time needed to see independent women in music industry that empowered us and made us feel able to achieve anything we want. This look was inspired by the early stages of Beyonce’s career, she used to wear this look many times both on stage and in photo shoots. It is a subtle smokey eye look that makes any woman feel like a diva.

Here are my step by step instructions and products used:

  • Instead of a Usual primer I used the white Jumbo pencil by NYX, and applied it all over the lid. This will make your lid that perfect white canvas that every artists loves to have.
  • Then I started by applying a dark brown eye-shadow using the Fraulein Nude palette, on the crease and blended the color further down on the lid. This creates a nice gradient effect in which you can blend easily with a lighter shade of color, for which I used the nice shimmer white by the Make up store
  • I used the same color and applied it under the brows. To give a more depth to the eye I applied a tint of black onto the crease and blended it with the rest. Fraulein Nude Palette.
  • Finally to complete the eye look a nice winged eyeliner on top and even below the lashes. For this look I used the Maybelline gel liner, which I will try to post a review of after I get back :).
  • Please note that these aren’t the usual steps of applying the eye-shadow but for this look this is the best way for it to look good.
  • For the cheeks I used the E.l.f contouring bronzer and the Nars Deep Throat. As for the lips I used a Rimmel creme lip gloss. I forgot the name of it as I had it for a long time and the name rubbed off.

Well guys that is all for today 🙂 I do hope you like this look, feel free to comment down below or like this post. I really do enjoy reading your lovely comments and thank you for following

Vamp – Make-Up look

Hey guys,

So I did this Make-up look this yesterday and I loved this look so much that I thought of showing it to you guys, before some of the other looks I have prepared already. Being that fall is here and even Halloween is soon to be, I thought of doing a sexy Vampire inspired look. I have been a fan of vampires since I was a teen and at that time there wasn’t such a hype about them. People used to be scared of vampires or find them ugly but now since Twilight came out, everything changed. The actual vampires are known to be very pale because they are dead and their eye lid is quite dark with a red tint. Also watch out for a more natural look for fall below.

Vamp1

So here is my version with my step by step instructions and list of products that I used:

Vamp2

  1. First thing I applied a the face primer by MAC on the lids and then I started the eye-shadow by applying a matte red colour all over the lid. The red colour on the lid, gives the impression that you are sick or even dead in this case and it makes the face look pale. Elf Palette
  2. Then I used a dark purple colour and blended it with the red colour. Elf palette
  3. For the crease I used a black and a dark brown from the Fraulen 38 palette.
  4. Finally I applied the eyeliner using the NYX curve liner (which I will review soon) and Revlon Mascara.
  5. For the cheeks I only used a contouring bronzer by E.l.f being that vampires are pale I didn’t apply any blusher.
  6. As for the lips I used this lovely dark purple colour lipstick which I bought at a flee market, so it doesn’t come from any particular brand.

Vamp3

I also did a more natural look for you guys, basically all I did was remove the dark lipstick and applied a baby pink colour lipstick instead, from MUA. I also added a bit of peach blusher on the cheeks, and there you have a nice look for fall:

Vamp4

I hope you like my version of female version of Vampire make-up.If you wish to wear this look for a night out leave it as it is but if you are interested in wearing this look for Halloween, do add some blood drops next to you mouth and of course some fangs. Also If I find a male model, I will actually do the male version make-up of a vampire.

That is all for now, keep posted for more and thank you for following and feel free to like my Facebook page. Also have any make-up suggestion or you want me to do a particular look for you with step by step pictures, do let me know in the comment below.

Eclipse – Make-up look

Hey guys,

I hope you are having a nice weekend so far. So as promised, here is another make-up look for you guys. This time I decided to do a different smokey eye with a mixture of blue and black. I decided to name this look the Eclipse because it reminded me of the colours you see during the eclipse. During an eclipse all you see is total darkness but there is also a tint of blue, white and brown.

Eclipse2

So here are my step by step instruction and also the list of products I used:

Eclipse1

  • The first thing I applied was my 2 faced primer, which I will review further on and then my make up store shimmer white colour under the brows
  •  I started off my eye-shadow look with a vibrant blue color from the e.l.f 100 palette on the middle of my lid and then blended it out with a darker blue color on the crease and on my waterline.
  • I also applied a tint of black colour onto the crease and finished of the look with a light brown colour on top of the crease. Very important to blended all the colours together.
  • Finally I used my maybelliner gel eyeliner and did a double eyeliner and  then I used the Revlon grow luscious plumpin Mascara.
  • For the cheeks I used the Elf contouring blusher called Turks and Caicos and Marbert peach colour.
  • As for the lips I used the Catrice Color stay – light my fire lipgloss, a very natural peachy colour.

Eclipse3
