Makeup Revolution – Pink and brown

Hi there!

Since I’ve been having trouble with my eyes and eyelids for a couple of days I haven’t had the chance to try out all the makeup I got from Makeup Revolution the other day. But yesterday everything seemed fine, so today I was ready to give it a go. I’ve used eye shadows from the Ultimate Eyeshadow Collection, and was really happy with how they came out. The pigment was good, and they were easy to build up and blend. The lipstick is also from Makeup Revolution and is Liphug in colour She’s up all night. The lipstick also has great pigment and is easy to apply. I think it lasts good for a £2.50 lipstick, so I will definitely be buying more of these in the future.

Before I started I had decided for a neutral look, with matte brown shadows, since I was just staying at home. When I picked up my palette that was an impossible mission though. There were so many fun colours, and I just wanted to play around. I ended up with something in between and went for brown and pink.

I know these pictures are far from the best out there, and I’m really struggling to catch the eye makeup on photo. The colours just won’t come to it’s right. I truly hope they will help us with this in school since a lot of our work will be done at home and photographed to show the teachers. If you have any good tips and tricks how practice until then, please let me know!

1920’s look

Good evening!

This weekend me and Martin was invited to a party with a 1920’s theme. A theme I liked since it meant all in on make up. I spent quite a lot of Unfortunately we were working under real time pressure since both of us were working all night, so pictures of the whole outfit and a pictured walk through on the make up fell out of the schedule. You will be able to follow my thoughts in text though.

The 1920’s were much about a light colored skin tone, so I went through my make up collection to find the lightest of my foundations. The choice fell on my Matte/FX foundation from Beauty UK in color 01 Ivory. A light coverage was all I needed to my pale winter skin for this look. A bit of Collection’s Lasting Perfection concealer in 01 Fair was used to brighten up under the eyes. I’m a big fan of bronzer but that was left out this time and I only used a little bit of blush on the apples of my cheek. I picked 2true No.1, which is probably my most used shade.

The eyes got a lot of attention. Starting with the brow, I used my Kohl Pencil from Kicks (Single Espresso) and More Brows from Model Co (Medium/Dark) to shape and draw the eyebrows downwards. With eyeshadows from MUA – Undressed I created a really smokey eye. I used Rose Ash as a base, and Cool Grey and Fuel for the smokiness. Fuel is the darker color of the two, and that’s the one I used for the inner corners and faded out to Cool Grey in the outer corners. The other way around from how most people wear their make up now. To frame the eyes I used a black inliner from Färg and a felt liner from P.S.Love (Primark). With the felt liner I created a wing as well. For the upper lashes I used Diorshow mascara and for the lower lashes I chose False Lash Architect from L’oréal Paris. I find the L’oreal mascara perfect for the lower lashes since the brush is thin and the color is quite dry, which makes it easy to catch the small lashes without painting everything else around the eye black.

The lipstick was deep red applied with a fair Cupids’s bow on the upper lip. I used my YSL lipstick in 204 and a small lip pencil for application.

I was very happy with the look, and I got so much nice response from people at the party. Will definitely go for this look again if I get an opportunity to, or just for fun! It’s really not something I would go for for every day use.

What do you think of the look?

I made the picture black and white to catch the 1920’s feeling, but if you click it you’ll see it in the original colors.

Tutorial – Green eyes

Hey there!

The other day I got the question if I had an olive green eye shadow to recommend, so I thought I’d share what eye makeup I use when I want to match my green wardrobe.

To this look I’ve been using the following: 
1. Undressed Palette from MUA, colours Puff and Hazle.
2. Eye shadow from Sephora in colour Python bag No 45
3. H&M eyeliner in Soft Green
4. Felt Eyeliner Pen from Primark
5. Black eyeliner from Färg
6. Diorshow Mascara
7. Lip pen from Makiash in colour 2 cold plum
1. I’m starting off with Puff from MUA all over the eyelid, up to the eyebrows.
2. MUA Hazel over the lid
3. Sephora Python Bag in the outer corners and the crease.
4. Closest to the lash line I use my felt liner, and just above it I use the Soft Green eyeliner from H&M to make the green colour pop a bit more.
5. For the final look I’ve added black eyeliner from Färg inside the lower lashline, the Diorshow mascara and my absolute favorite lipcolour at the moment, Cold Plum from Makiash.
Did you enjoy the tutorial? Something I should keep doing? Anything I should do differently? Comment below to let me know your thoughts. 
Also, do you have any favorite colours of eye shadow that isn’t the black/grey smokey eye or the more natural brown/beige look? 
See you again soon! 

Makeup Academy – Undressed

Hi there!

When me and my sister were in London in June I picked up an eye shadow palette from Makeup Academy. Since I spend quite a lot of time at M’s apartment I felt like I needed some basics to leave there, so I don’t need to bring the big makeup bag every time I go there. Since it was only £4 I thought it would be worth to give it a try, and not spend a whole lot of money on buying duplicates. And was I impressed? HELL YEAH!

I chose the Undressed palette, with 12 different shade from a light beige to dark brown and grey, some matte and some with shimmer. I thought it was a perfect combination for a basic collection. It’s well pigmented and easy to blend. I like that I don’t have to work forever to get it to look nice. I like to sleep in in the mornings, so big plus! First time I used it I was a bit stressed and didn’t find my primer, so I worked it directly on to my eyelids. When I got home from work about 12 hours later it looked like it was just put on.  Another great plus is that it didn’t irritate my eyelids. I can be quite sensitive, and might get a little itchy when I use eye shadow. None of that with this one! The only regret I have is that I only got one, and not the other palettes as well.

I would highly recommend this product if you’re looking for a good palette that doesn’t burn holes in your wallet.
