Autumn Smokey Eye + Youtube?

So I’ve been really getting into Autumn makeup and dark colours and lately I’ve been rocking a dark brown smokey eye and paring it with a grey lip. Every time I wear this look I get compliments on it, so I’ve decided to post on it and also film a YouTube tutorial on it.

I’ve had youtube for a while, but took a break because life is busy and I’ve just not been very inspired to film anything, but with Autumn makeup filling my life with joy, I’ve been itching to record. So I’ll include this video for you. I’m not an MUA nor do I have a fancy studio, its just me so don’t get judgey.

I wore the look with one of my favourite lipsticks ever which is this gorgeous grey by Shanghai Suzy, its the shade called ‘Dove’. I never would have expected to like a grey lipstick but I find myself reaching for this all the time. This might be one of the first lipsticks I’ll use up in full!

This was the first time I’d done my makeup like it. I was totally feeling it and felt flawless. Its amazing how makeup can enhance your mood and give you such a confidence boost.

I used my Stila – Eyes are the window – Soul palette to achieve this look. But once you see what shadows I’ve used you can swap them out for something else in your collection. Try using the Chi Chi Mattes Palette as an affordable alternative!

Its really easy to get this look. If you watch the video you can see what I’m doing, but if you use this diagram as a reference you still know what to put and where!

I love dark smokey eyes for the cooler months and I have been experimenting a heap with different looks so I hope you’re excited for that coz I sure am!

Easter Week: Makeup and Outfit Inspo!

Welcome to the second post of Easter Week! I figure, now that I’ve given you some nail art ideas I might give you some ideas for outfits and makeup, because why not?

Easter is usually a busy time for a lot of people, family commitments, Easter get-togethers usually an arguments about who is hosting this year etc, etc. If you’re someone who doesn’t celebrate Easter then just sit back and get some inspo for makeup and outfits because: Pretty.

MAKEUP

Minimal Effort:

basic

This is probably what I’ll be rocking on easter. Minimal effort, easy and casual. Defined brows, glowy skin and nude/pink lips. I kept this look without any liner but feel free to add it, I probably would. Its fresh and youthful and low maintenance! To achieve this look I used my Urban Decay Naked 1 palette – A good dupe is the ‘chi chi nudes’ palette.

Easter Night Out:

going out

When people think of Easter, their first thought isn’t usually clubbing. But I’ve done my fair share of Easter themed nights in town. Free entry if you’re wearing bunny ears etc. I’d personally rock this look on the daily because I think its super pretty and its just so simple! I used my Naked 3 palette only to achieve this look. This is still dramatic enough to be worn out but also pretty and pastel enough to be worn to a day time event!

Floral fun:

flower

This look might not be what some think when getting ready for Easter, but in my time I’ve known a lot of Easter parties put on for kids where people have face-paint and the Easter Bunny is there along with big egg hunts and lots of fun! I’d totally wear this to that type of event. (If I could wear it on the daily, lord help me I would)

I used my Stila – Soul palette and the inglot white eyeliner on the eyes, the floral work is TAG body paints. Super easy to use and last really well. They’re water activated so really easy for beginners!

OUTFITS

Pastel Pink Easter outfit.

<br/>

This is something that I’d love to wear all the time because its just so pretty! But for those who tend to dress up for church / have a more ‘formal’ family affaire this is perfect. Its girly and fun and perfect for the weather (sprint time/ end days of summer).

Easter Morning

<br/>

If you don’t have plans for the Easter holiday then might I suggest this comfy ensemble! Its probably what I’ll be wearing if I don’t have to leave the house. Spend all day in your PJs eating waffles, pancakes and hot cross buns for breakky!

Easter night out

<br/>

If you’re going out for a night on the town for some Easter festivities, I think this is really cute. (I say that because its basically what I wore when I went out) I’d pair this with the dramatic makeup. The dress is simple but pretty and super comfy, if heels aren’t your thing go for some flats. The ears are what makes it, though. You’ll look adorable and sexy in this outfit.

Boho/chic Easter outfit.

<br/>

If I have to leave the house, this is what I’d opt for. A maxi skirt (because who can be bothered shaving their legs) and a low cut crop wrap top – because my body looks bangin’ in those. Pineapple earrings because: me. Cute strappy flats and a signature scent! I love the hair style for this too. Just so pretty… AND EASY! I’m all about that life! I’d pair this with either the minimal makeup or the more dramatic one because go hard or go home, right?

I hope you’re enjoying Easter week so far. If you missed the first post, click here!

2 for 1 eye look!

I’m pretty sure we all have what we call our ‘go to’ make up look. Something simple but striking that we know we can 100% ace when we’re in a rush and need a little pretty pick-me-up or when we over indulged on our beauty sleep and need to get ready in 10 actual minutes.

My go to look is a simple gold/brown smokey eye. It can be toned up or down depending on the occasion. I used my Stila eyes are the window – Soul palette.

The eye look as I said is so simple. Follow the pictorial above to get the look! So many palettes come with shades like this, I reach for my Stila palette, Naked palette and also the Chi Chi Nudes palette.

EverydayLook

For the first look I used a nude lip colour. This is one if the Maybelline color drama lip pencils in the shade ‘Nude Perfection’ I think the nude colour gives the look a “sweet and innocent” vibe, especially in contrast to the purple. It is quite a peachy nude, I would like to maybe use a cooler toned grey nude (or even just a grey) to match the outer corner eyelid shade.
purple

For the ‘second’ look, I added some lashes and changed out the lip colour for this bright bold purple! Its one of the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lips in the shade ‘I’m Royalty’ I LOVE this shade (I love purple lipstick) and I think it works really well with this look. Not to mention going great with brown eyes. I felt more like myself with the purple lip. I felt more confident and it shows when you see the two ‘looks’ compared with one another in the next photoset. I look happier and more confident.

I also showed a photo with my glasses on, to prove that A) The eye look can be for anything, work, uni, looking good with glasses and B) If you’re a wearer of glasses, use them to enhance your face and your makeup! I’ll be doing a few ‘Makeup for glasses wearers’ posts in the future!

BEFOREAFTER

As I said above, you can tell that I feel more confident (werk it) with the bold lip. But that just proves (to me) that one should embrace their makeup, and use it to enhance themselves not to use it as a mask.

Its amazing what a pair of lashes and a different lip colour can do! It also goes to show that when you’ve got confidence it really shines through, and that is what I think is most important!  I love purple lipstick, especially with brown eyes, it gives me a cadbury chocolate vibe that I don’t even hate!
