Autumn Golden Eye

Good Morning World!

I would firstly like to point out that is this my first ever makeup post involving my face, I know its pretty weird and I would usually avoid this at all costs but after constant persuasion from my blogging BFF Caris, I came around to the idea.

So without further ado, I present my face…

This look was inspired by a recent shoot of mine and I used Autumnal colours in my eyes to match the browning leaves. When doing my makeup in Autumn I tend to go for a high coverage foundation, this is because when the months start to get colder my face starts to develop more spots and red blemishes and so the higher coverage is more necessary. I use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24hour matte foundation and the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer to achieve my base. This foundation is matte and so I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone who suffers with dry skin as this may cause some irritation, however for anyone else this foundation is a god sent.

For my eyes I used a Ted Baker Trio Palette, and took the lighter shade all over my eye, and dark brown in my crease, I then went over lightly with the golden copper shade to incorporate the season. For my contour I used the Sleek Contour Palette, and for blush I used a MAC blusher in the shade Just a Wisp.

I did my eyebrows with a Rimmel Brow This Way eyebrow pencil in the shade light, and used the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara over my eyes. Then to finish used the MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy.

I hope you enjoyed this look and get creating yourself.

June Makeup Favourites

Good Morning World!

Throughout the month of June I have branched out and tried a lot more makeup products, and I thought I would share with you the ones that I have enjoyed the most.

The first product that I have been obsessed with this month is actually an eye shadow palette that I got for Christmas from my mum, but haven’t gotten round to using until recently. This eyeshadow trio palette from Ted Baker comes with three gorgeous colours, a pink-y nude base colour, a shimmery copper-peach colour and a dark brown. I am in love with this more peachy copper on my eyes recently, as the colour combination really compliments my blue eyes. This palette came in a beauty pack with lots of other makeup products, but you can also buy it separately. Although to me, I never thought about Ted Baker’s makeup to be that appealing but the colour pay off is lovely and it is super easy to blend.

The second item that I have been loving this month is this Rimmel Lip Pencil in the shade 063 Eastend Snob. I cannot preach enough about how much I love this product, I have never loved a lip pencil more, the pencil itself is ever so creamy and glides really well onto the lips. Also I love how you don’t have to sharpen it, you just twist the colour up. I dislike so much when you sharpen a lip pencil or eye liner and it goes really sharp and ends up hurting your lips or eyes. I have been wearing this colour so much recently, its the perfect shade for summer and it goes so well with my skin tone. Normally I am not one for a pink lip as it washes my face out but this colour doesn’t. I haven’t found a lipstick that matches this liner perfectly yet, as I don’t like wearing glossy lipstick, so I have been smothering this colour all over my lips, and I’m completely in love.

The third and final makeup product I have been loving this month isn’t actually a product but a brush. This is the contour brush by Real Techniques, this brush came with their base set, and I don’t believe they sell this brush individually but it is so worth buying the pack and isn’t that expensive for 4 brushes. I use this brush for contour beneath my cheek bones and the tapered end means that the brush gets right under your cheek bones and gives you a natural looking contour, as its also a fluffy brush so your contour line wont appear harsh.

Autumn Makeup

Good Morning World!

IMG_2977I find myself really starting to enjoy the lustful shades of Autumn. The trees are glowing with oranges, reds and gold, giving me so much inspiration to transfer to my face. When the evenings get longer and the weather gets shorter, its time to revamp your makeup bag and unleash the berry lips and gold smokey eyes.IMG_2986This look is fairly straight forward in being that it incorporates your usual base, foundation, concealer and powder. Then to warm my face up I have been using the Sleek contour kit. This is only a recent discovery of mine, for years now I have heard beauty bloggers rave about this product, but I never joined in on the hype and tested it out. So other day when browsing in Superdrug, I came across this gem, and I am never going back. IMG_2979IMG_2982My eye inspiration has come from the beauty that is moulting trees. I am seriously obsessed with golden smokey eyes. I start by applying a base coat, I used the Maybelline colour tattoo in On And On Bronze, then I cover my lid and inner corner in this gorgeous golden shadow from Revolution called Mountains of Gold. Then for my finishing touch, I add a darker sparkly brown to the outer corners of my eyes and through my crease to add definition.IMG_2978No Autumnal look is complete without a dark berry lip. This stand alone colour adds something extra to this look ,creating the perfect Autumn fairy tale. This look is quickly becoming one my everyday routine.IMG_2990Products Mentioned:
