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.

Primark – £1 Lipsticks

Hello guys 🙂
A while ago in London, as I was waiting after a long line to try some of the clothes I picked at Primark, there was this beauty section full of cute make-up products and pretty stuff. Being of course the beautyholic that I am, I had to pick a few items from there and I got these 3 beautiful lipsticks and a bronzing powder. There were some other products, like small nail polishes, and cute lipglosses into the shape of a cupcake and even mascaras and eyeliners but they didn’t impress me much.
1

I chose 4 colours, not sure if they had more colours, but if they did’t take more because I either didn’t like colour or probably have something similar.  Unfortunately they have no names on them so I made names for them myself. 1 The ” Flirty Fushia” is another lovely pink colour more on the darker side, it transfer pretty well and it can be worn in any season. The “Orangy Red” is another lovely orange-red colour, reminds me of the NYX coral colour I have, but this one is shimmer and not matte. 3 The  “Barbie Pink” is a very bright pink, which unlike what it looks like in tube itself it’s a very light pink. I really like this color and would definitely prefer it on me in Summer rather than in Winter for some reason.  4 Last but not least the “Pinky Purple”, this colour is a mixture of pink and purple fused together into one gorgeous colour, I don’t have anything like this colour in my collection, it very pretty. A perfect colour for Winter and would look gorgeous in Summer too. The Flirty Fushia and Pinky Purple are very similar but the Pinky purple is lightly darker.

3

Pros:

  • I am pretty impressed with the quality of these lipstick for it’s cheap price.
  • They are creamy and most of the transfer pretty well
  • The darker colours have some pretty staying power. They don’t have the staying power as great brands like MAC but they are as good as any other drugstore brands I have tried.
  • Did I mention they only cost for £1, that pretty ridiculous. They are as good as some of the lipsticks I have tried from some other drugstore and wayy cheaper.

2

Cons:
  • I honestly would give this product any cons being that it’s ridiculously cheap, but I have to say the lid comes off very easily, so be careful how to you store them or how you put them if your handbag.

Will I ever buy this product again? Definitely, if I’m ever in London again for sure, I love the colors and they are so cheap.

Do I recommend it? I recommend it to anyone, they are very good for their inexpensive price, I used them all the time.

Indian Inspired – Make-up Look

Hey guys,

First of all I want to wish all the Maltese a happy feast while for the rest of the world I do hope you are enjoying your day to the full :). Recently I have been very influenced by the Indian culture. I am in love with the use of colours when it comes to fashion, make up and even religion. Colour plays an important aspect to their values and everyday life. Something I noticed is, that they go full out with make-up and colour on bridal make-up. In western societies we usually go for more natural colours.

1

It would be interesting, I really get to do make up in India, because I wouldn’t have any restraints. Both in Malta and other western countries I have had clients that are sometimes scared to apply different colours because they think it will look bad, but it doesn’t. It all comes to application and blending. However let’s get to my look, I have noticed the use of purple, blue, and yellow in Indian Make-up so I thought these should be my main colours.

4

For this look I used:

  1. The Two Faced, shadow insurance primer
  2. Make up store – white shimmer colour
  3. E.l.f palette for the yellow, blue, purple colour
  4. Maybellline lasting drama gel eyeliner
  5. L’Oreal extra volume colagen Mascara
  6. For the lips I used OMG  lipstick by MUA
  7. Cheek, elf baked bronzer, Mac sheerton blusher breezy

2 3Well guys I do hope you like this look. I do hope I made justice to the beautiful Indian make-up. If you like this look, I would appreciate a like or comment down below, thank you for following

Purple Breeze – Make-Up look

Hey guys,

Sorry for not posting much this week, but it was one of the busiest weeks ever. I am part of the ZHN Symphonik Choir and this weekend we had two successful concerts. This week was full of events and rehearsals, that is why I didn’t post much. But here I am with a new look for you guys :).

1

For this look I used a mixture of vibrant colours that fall under the colour purple gradient. I called this look purple breeze because it’s like that lovely feeling you get when there is breeze in the midst of this hot summer. The colours themselves look vibrant and refreshing like a breeze.

2

  • For the inner corner of the eyes I used a vibrant yellow colour, then blended it with light purple pinkish eye-shadow on the middle of the lid.  (e.l.f marble palette)
  • Further on I applied a blueish purple and a navy blue colour on the crease.
  • The eye look is definitely not complete without a black eyeliner and mascara.
  • As for the lips I used the Nicky Minajr Viva glam and for the cheeks the e.l.f bronzer and M.A.C Sheertone blusher breezy.

Well guys I hope you like this look, if you do I would appreciate a like or comment down below :). Next week I promise to be more active and post more interesting posts for you guys, keep posted
