Graphic Liner

A little bit of graphic liner for you today (And good lighting! The sun is out in England! Yay!). This looks straight-forward but was a huge pain in the ass. 

Thankfully, concealer and a small flat brush is a great way to clean up your edges if you mess up or things don't turn out as clean as you'd hope... 




EYES:
  • Tarte Tarteist Clay Paint Liner to line eyes and upper waterline 
  • MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC15 to clean up the edges 
  • Motives by Loren Ridinger Lustrafy Waterproof Mascara 


BROWS:
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in 'Caramel'
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in 'Auburn'
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in 'Brunette'

Amethyst & Belize

I went back to my Makeup Addiction Cosmetics 'Flaming Love' palette today as I hadn't yet played with the brightest shadows that are inside. 

These are definitely some of the most pigmented shadows in the palette, and I found that they blend out very well for shimmery shades. I love the balance of colour, neutrals, and finishes in this palette and it's well worth the price of £25 for 8 great shadows so check it out if you haven't already seen it!

Makeup Addiction Cosmetics also just released their new false lashes which come in 4 gorgeous styles up to now, so be expecting to see those in upcoming images very shortly! 




EYES:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion in 'Eden'

Blue & Black Glitter

I'm almost a week late but Happy New Year everybody! I hope everyone enjoyed themselves, and here is my first look of the year! 

I usually try and steer away from using blues - especially mattes - as I always find they come out rather muddy looking when I blend them. So I decided to use just that today to see how it would turn out.

It didn't turn out too bad, I still found it a lot more difficult to blend than any other colour, but I persevered and stuck with it. I've used this shadow from Concrete Minerals before but almost always in a way that didn't need to blended out. CM loose shadows are wonderful so I thought this one would be my best bet at getting a smoother application. 

I didn't want to do anything over complicated as I anticipated it coming out a big ol' mess, so I just teamed it up with a chunky black glitter and kept it simple.

Let me know what you think. Are there any colours that you struggle to work with or are likely to avoid? 





EYES:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Concrete Minerals Pro Matte Eyeshadow in 'Bulletproof' blended into crease and lower lash line
