Amethyst

I recently got a brand new stunning Amythest Nugget necklace and La Lune bangle from the wonderful Noctua, and I love them so much that I was inspired to do my makeup to go with them! 

I used purple shades inspired by the Amethyst crystal (ones of my favourites) and a subtle sparkly silver glitter (the moon!) to help really pull the whole look together. 

Here are photos of both of the pieces that inspired this look. The silver La Lune bangle can be found HERE for only £6.50, and the Amethyst Nugget Necklace can be found HERE for £10. Noctua have an amazing selection of stunning unique crystal jewelry at great prices. Check out what else they have in store because there is definitely something for everybody to fall in love with!

Electric

My favourite favourite favourite ever matte electric blue eyeshadow by Concrete Minerals! I've never found such a pigmented blue before that doesn't fade after a few minutes of putting it on but this stuff is on fiiiire! 

Also wearing my awesome black contact lenses from EyeCandys to take away some of the blue from my eyes so that the eyeshadow looks even more awesome and vivid. Sometimes the simplest of looks make the biggest statement...

Fresh Greens

Keeping it fresh today with leafy emeralds and vivid yellow seeing as it's almost summer time, yaaay!

Green has always been one of my favourite colours and I find that slightly softer and more wearable shades similar to these are complimentary to most skin tones (Not too gaudy, unless of course you're braver than I am and that's your thang!) 



EYES:
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Covet Waterproof Eyeliner in 'Absynthe' all over lid as a base 
  • ColourChase Cosmetics Ultra rich Pigment in 'Emerald' all over lid

Goth Glitter Lips

Just a little something for fun today: decided to finally jump on the black lip bangwagon! 

I don't own a black lipstick (yet!) but I was inspired to make do and mend with what I already have after seeing a lot of photos of the new Lime Crime 'Black Velvet' Velvetine and Melt Cosmetics 'Bane' lipsticks. I used my Inglot AMC Gel Eyeliner all over the lips and decided to crank it up by applying a black and silver glitter eyeliner over the top. 

I wouldn't recommend wearing a black gel eyeliner on the lips for any length of time, but like I said this was just for fun. Definitely invest in a matte black lipstick if you want something long-wearing. 




LIPS:
  • Inglot #77 AMC Gel Eyeliner 
  • Collection (formally 'Collection 2000) Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner in 'Rock Chick'



Burnt Orange

Went back to my Anastasia Beverly Hills Lavish Palette today to crease this nice and warm smokey eye, which was a very easy and quick look to throw together.

Seeing as there is only one primary colour used, the only key to getting this look right is to make sure that everything is blended out nicely. I decided to use tape for the sharp outer edge just to give the look a little bit more shape and definition, but for an even more effortless result just skip that part. 

Teamed this up with some lush long lashes from Eldora to add a little bit more depth to the look. I love love love burnt orange shades for summer!




EYES:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Orange Soda' eyeshadow (from the 'Lavish' palette) blended into crease and lower lash line
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Sienna' eyeshadow (from the 'Lavish' palette) blended into crease, across the lid and lower lash line 
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Cream' eyeshadow (from the 'Lavish' palette) to highlight brow bone
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Black Diamond' eyeshadow (from the 'Lavish' palette) to VERY lightly deepen outer corner and lower lash line 
  • Inglot AMC Gel Eyeliner in #77 to line eyes and upper and lower waterlines 
  • Rimmel Extra Wow Lash mascara 
  • Eldora #H148 false lashes
