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!

Thank you so much for reading, and don’t forget:

Beauty Book

Beauty Diary

No, I’m not an author bringing out a new book.

If you like to write lists, and doodle on pages, this might be something for you.

I thought I might share with you a project that I’ve been working on lately. Its something that I hope you’ll enjoy, you can take this idea and put it towards all of your hobbies. One of my hobbies happens to be playing with makeup, so if this isn’t one of yours, I hope you can apply this idea to something that suits you.

I am someone who loves to write things down. I’m a list maker. I love art, and I love working with ink – be in calligraphy or just your general pen, I enjoy the art of handwriting so I decided to combine all of these things and create a work in progress called my ‘Beauty Book’.

It is a place where I keep wish lists, and blog/video ideas all nice and neat – I’m not one to use the ‘notes’ section on my phone. I find that very impersonal and I like to talk (to myself) in notes. It is no way complete, but I’ll show you what I have so far. I hope you like it.

Front Cover; Title Page; Videos to Film

The book is actually from Ikea. I think it was about $4? ish, not very expensive, otherwise I wouldn’t have picked it up. The main reason I liked it is that it has blank pages. It comes with an insert that has lines on one side and a grid on the other so you can slide it under the page you’re writing on so you can write in a straight line etc. I think thats pretty darn cool. (it took me a while to figure out what it was for though) The name of the book from Ikea is the ‘Tjenis’. It comes with a few different colour schemes on the front cover.

Wish lists / Products I want to buy; Ideas for Blog posts

As I said, you can take this idea and apply it to your hobbies. Its basically a place I can jot down my ideas and keep track of the lists of things I want to buy. Now yes, there is a hell of a lot of stuff on there and don’t worry, I’m not a massive spender, I believe in moderation and I have recently purchased things from the ‘Makeup Wishlist’ page so I will have to cross them off! I have many pages that are the same ‘Makeup Wishlist #2’ etc but for the sake of boring photos I didn’t include them, I just wanted to show what the pages look like.

Now, whilst I love art, I’m no artist and my hand writing is a little messy at times (times like in this book  it seems) I love typography and that style and yeah.. thats why I have it how I do. On the blank pages (because I’m not writing back to back) I think I might cut out things from magazines / catalogues and make arty fancy mural pages to bring some colour to it.

I hope you like this idea and if you do use it for something, be sure to send me a pic because I think that’d be just awesome!

Thanks for reading this short but sweet little post; and don’t forget:
