Flawless – Make-Up Look

Hey guys,

A while ago I bought the “Flawless” tshirt from Beyonce’s new Album clothing line. As most you already know I am quite a huge Beyonce fan and as a Woman and quite a  feminist I am really in love with her song called Flawless.  The song Flawless is about us women believing in our true natural beauty and to always work to better ourself and not to please men but to please ourselves. With that motto in my head, I put the shirt on, wore some fancy jewellery and wore a fearless and “flawless” make up look. Some of you might have thought I would do a more natural look, because indeed we are all beautiful naturally. But nothing makes me feel more flawless than an edgy make-up look, cause in the end we should feel free to express our self the way we like. 🙂

The look is very edgy, smoking but still feminine, check out my step by step instructions below:

Eyes

F4

Instructions:

  • For the eyes I basically did a normal Smokey eye look with a twist underneath. I started off with the black eye shadow onto the crease and blended it out on the mid lid with a beige/white colour. Very easy and simple to do.
  • I also used a brown colour on the crease to blend the black with the white, which unfortunately isn’t that visible due to my low quality camera.
  • What makes the look stand out is the purple cream eye-shadow which I applied under the lower lashes moving further out, under the black eyeliner.
  • Of course you cannot finish the look without the usual eyeliner and mascara

Products:

  • NYX Palette
  • Wjon purple cream eye-shadow
  • MAC gel liner
  • Benefit They’re real Mascara

F2

Cheeks and Lips

  • For the cheeks I used a little bit of bronzer (but not as much as it looks in the photo hehe which reminds me, to but a good camera) and then applied a reddish tone blusher.
  • As for the lips I used the natural pinkish colour lipstick

Well I hope you liked this look, it is a very simple look so you can try it easily at home. If you love Smokey eyes but want to try something different use a pop or colour under the lower lashes, believe me you will look great. Remember if you have small eyes, it is better to use coloured eyeliner, and make it very thin.

Beyonce Partition – Inspired Make-Up Look

If you know me, you would probably know that I am a major Beyonce fan. She is truly an amazing singer and performer and now with her new visual album I couldn’t but steel some of her looks. Partition is definately one of the sexiest song in her new album and whenever I hear it, It truly gives me good vibes, I feel sexy and powerful. The make-up reflects all of this femininity and sex appeal, which is why I wanted to try it out myself.

P1

Of course I am not beyonce but hopefully my look will help you to do something similar yourselves, if you want to be a little bit daring. The look its pretty simple, she has some bold black liner and smokey eyes that blend out on the crease and some glossy red lips. The look is not exactly as hers in the photo above but its my inspiration, but do see the photo below of the look I was mostly going for. Keep reading for further information 🙂

Eyes:

(I do apologies for the low quality of the pictures, I do hope to invest in a professional camera in the future 🙂 )

P2

Instructions:

  • I always start with a primer however right after I chose a black eyeshadow and lined my eyes like applying an eyeliner and blended it out upwards towards the crease
  • Then I used a creme colour on the crease to blend the black shadow and some light shade under the brows.
  • I also highlighted the brow and then applied some liner and mascara. I don’t think you would need any fake lashes with this look due it its dark shadow, but you can always do so. Something I learned recently is that her make-up artist rarely applies fake lashes on her.

Products:

  • Two face eyeshadow primer
  • Fraulein 38 nude eyeshadow palette
  • Make Up store Microshadow in desert and white
  • NYX the curve eyeliner
  • Revlon Scandalous eyes Mascara

Cheeks and Lips:

P4

 

Instructions:

  • As for the cheeks I used a bit of bronzer to highlight the cheek bone and then a nice pink toned blusher on the cheeks. Finally I applied a little bit of highlighter on the T zone to give a nice glow to the skin. I find that with such a dark look a highlighter is very useful to balance things out.
  • With regards to the lips I used first the matter red lipstick then on top of it a lovely red lipgloss.

Products:

  • ELF Baked bronzer
  • Make Up store blusher in Glam Rose
  • MAC Ruby Woo
  • Make Up Store in Cleo

My make up is mostly inspired by this look however it is very similar to the first image of Beyonce however the shadow is a bit different.

Well I do hope you like this look, I would really appreciate a thump up or like trough facebook. Also feel free to comment down below I do love hearing your opinion 🙂

Lot of Love

XOXO

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.

B3

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

20 Random Facts About me

20130905-195436.jpg

Hey guys,

  1. The first time I put make-up on was when I had 12years old. My sister applied some lip-gloss and eye-shadow on me and I felt I looked so pretty and I wore make up ever since.
  2. My older sister thought me a lot about make-up and application, she even did make-up for small fashion shows in Malta.I used to tell my sister to do my make-up all the time, now I do it to her because I keep myself updated a lot and have a lot more make-up than she does. 😀
  3. When I started this make up blog, I was in a bad place. I had lost my feminine side, but I found it back again thanks to this blog.
  4. Apart from Make-up I love to sing and have always dreamed to make it big since I was a little girl. Still dreaming 😀
  5. At the moment I sing in a lovely choir called Symphonik, they are the best.
  6. I have always loved the color blue but I am seriously loving the color red. Everyone complements me when I wear a red top or lipstick.
  7. I love Movies and have become an Tv show addict, I watch a lot of them everyday, from girly shows like girl code or 2 broke girls, to funny ones like big bang theory to action and thriller shows like Game of thrones, Dexter, Arrow and Much more.
  8.  I love tea, I must be half British or something because I have tea in all the seasons, yes even in Summer. I have from normal tea to green tea and I even had Moroccon.
