Midweek Makeovers

Wednesday 31 July 2013

Hello my lovelies!

As you know I've been fairly busy with clients the last couple weeks in the run up to Ramadan (everyone rushes to get married before or after Ramadan!), so I thought I'd do a post showing some of the makeup of clients I actually managed to capture.

Party makeup eyes:
coral smokey look
gold-green look
gold-pink-purple look
gold-maroon smokey look
silver smokey look
I also had a few brides and managed to get a picture of two bride's makeup; one wanted a simple look for her day and the second wanted a classic asian bridal look:
simple glittery asian bridal look
classic red asian bridal look
I also had a few prom bookings in June; proms are getting much bigger as time goes on (my school didn't even have one!) but I loved doing these 16 year olds' makeup.. they're surprisingly mature and it was fun introducing them to makeup that some had never tried before!
antique gold and navy look
silver smokey look with pink lips
smokey gunmetal with red
I'll be adding these pictures (and more) to my facebook page, don't forget to like it and follow me on Instagram too if you'd like to see more of my work and up to date!

Which looks were your favourite?


FFF: Electric Blue makeup look

Friday 12 July 2013

Hi guys!
First of all I want to apologise massively for the lack of posts, I've been feeling uber guilty about it, but I've been so busy it's just been impossible to blog.
But I am back. I have some more free time over the next few weeks so I shall be catching up with reviews and makeup looks amongst other posts so feel free to email or tweet me your requests!

This week the FFF is back (FOTD Frooti Fridays), it's one I did before my holiday to Malaysia in May but has taken forever to upload as I wanted to upload it with the video tutorial.. Hope you enjoy it!

After priming the eyes with UDPP & NYX JEP, I marked out the crease with the RT Detailer/Multi tasker brush and Blackout eyeshadow, creating a tiny flick at the ends and filling it slightly with the shadow.
Using a rounded blender brush, I used Evidence in the triangle filled area and blended inwards slightly; I then blended upwards and inwards with a longer haired blending brush.
Add more Evidence with the fluffy blending blush if needed.
With a flatter eyeshadow brush add Peace eyeshadow (Deluxe Shadow box) to the inner corner of the eyes. Then add Deep End (Anniversary Palette) to the rest of the eyelid with a flat shadow brush.
Next add La Femme eyeshadow in Bisque to the brow bone and blend inwards to the inner corner of the eye. With a long haired fluffy blending brush, add Junkshow (Anniversary palette) just above the navy blue Evidence. With a tapered blending brush, add Blackout (Anniversary palette) in the crease and blend upwards and inwards. Go back in with Bisque on the browbone if needed.
Clean up under the eye and on the outer corner, pulling upwards. With the UD Electric 24/7 pencil, line the inner bottom lashline, a third of the way in, then the middle part with Flipside pencil and lastly with Deviant pencil on the outer bottom lashline. Blend slightly with a multitasker brush.
Perversion eye pencil was used on the inner waterline and Inglot AMC gel eyeliner in black (77) was used to create the extended top liner and bottom wing from the bottom lash line.
Using the same angled liner brush, use the remains of the gel eyeliner to carve the bottom and top eyebrow lines and fill in with the remaining colour or brow powder/matte eyeshadow if needed.

Make sure the under eye area is cleaned before applying concealer; I used Khuraira ACC in Light and finish off the eyes by curling the lashes and applying Maybelline Falsies Black Drama mascara:
For the rest of the face I striped the Urban Decay concealer in ATF where needed and blended with a flat foundation brush, then applied Makeup Forever HD foundation in N153 and blended with a damp beauty blender sponge. I set the under eye concealer with a little Ben Nye Banana powder and applied the Urban Decay Toasted bronzer in the hollows of the cheeks with the RT contour brush. I then added MUA Undress Your Skin highlighter on the top of the cheeks and Benefit Bella Bamba blush on the apples of the cheeks.
Finally for the lips I used UD SSLC in Lovechild:
I then thought I'd try it with a brighter lip and wanted to try my newest purchase - Illamasqua lipstick in Eurydice; here's the two side by side:
Below is the video tutorial, so if you would like to follow step by step, please feel free to show me how yours looked!
