Video: Green & Silver Christmas


One Christmas themed make up tutorial is never enough, so I've done another! I figured I had to do something with green and red, and I've seen sooo many gold and brown ones (naturally those were all done after I did mine, haha).

Video: MAC Christmas Pigments Look

Hi!


I realised I've owned the MAC Christmas pigments for over a week and hadn't used them so I decided to just get in front of a camera and have a go. I had a vague idea of what I was going to do, but wasn't sure how well it would work since the pigments are so difficult to use and tend to blend together into one big sheen, which makes it hard to even tell what it's supposed to look like.


I usually would have made the crease of my eye darker to prevent the 'one big sheen' thing, but I wanted to mostly just use the pigments for those that have them and aren't sure how to use them.



I found it impossible to photograph it for some reason, so the photos are even more useless than normal today!




Also I'm gutted cause I did some pro skills with my eyeliner, didn't mess up once, but you can't tell at all from the photos :/

Eyes
MAC Paint Pot - Bare Study
MAC Crushed Metallic Pigments - Maribu, Femininity, Prettified, Dusty Desire
MUA e/s - Shade 2
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil - Asphyxia & Zero
Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner - Perversion
Too Faced Glitter Liner - Freak Show
No 7 Extreme Length Mascara - Black  

Lips
Collection Cream Puff Lipstick - Cotton Candy

  

I am having second thoughts about the lip colour, I reckon a pink lipgloss might have been better, especially if it was glittery since that would be quite festive.



Thanks for reading (:

Video: Pretty Grunge

Recently I remembered how much I love Smog eyeshadow by Urban Decay so I decided my next video had to feature it. It's one of very few eyeshadow colours I love to wear alone. Normally I'll use a good 3 or 4 colours in an eye look, but this one features just Smog (excluding the highlight colour).

I decided to call it 'Pretty Grunge' because the eyeshadow is relatively dark and smudgey, but then the lips are quite a light girly pink to balance it out. I quite like them together.

I wondered if it was even worth doing a tutorial on this, but I thought what the heck I'll do it anyway.

Jersey MAC & OPI Haul

Because I don't think I can ever have enough make up (apparently) I went and bought some more.

MAC Haul


As you can see, I got three lipsticks and two lipliners (how on Earth do you photograph lip liners, I just can't figure it out, they're so long so you have to be far away, but then the photo is so empty because they're thin! Plus they roll around).

Illamasqua Haul

Because I have no self control when it comes to make up I have decided to buy some more. This post is going to only be about Illamasqua since I got quite a lot, and there are quite a lot of photos for this brand alone, let alone other stuff I've bought recently.

Review & Tutorial: Lime Crime Aquataenia Palette

Hello!


 I haven't done a tutorial or written a blog post in far too long, so I'm endeavouring to resolve this.

Video: Cocktail Inspired - Mojito

Hello!

Newer Version Here 

Today I decided to do another cocktail inspired make up look, and this time went with mojito. The liquid itself is clear, but because traditionally limes and mint leaves are added, I thought this could be a really exciting white and green look. Again I decided that I had to use glitter because it makes anything look more exciting.

Video: Disco Mermaid

Since moving back home I've not known how/where to film a video and be able to get sufficient lighting and space to make a tripod and stand a mirror. I decided I would just get on with it and at least test some places after I got a suggestion on youtube from Kirstie

Tips :D

I recommend reading this post on it's own page (click the title) rather than the main blog page because it is text-heavy and image-heavy, which your computer/web browser may not be able to handle.

Yellow, Orange & Pink

I haven't posted in a while, but I consider that to be OK since no one reads this anyway (;

I'm feeling summery and happy because it's been SO warm, so I decided to match my makeup to my mood with some pretty colours.

Today's Look: Smokey Brown & Ombre Nails

Just a quick smokey brown eye look, and a look at the gradient/ombré style blue nail varnish I've been wearing.

Video: Silver & Purple

I've gone and done some more makeup! This time I was in a lilac mood, and decided I would do purple eyeshadow to match the lilac lipstick I've been desperate to wear! Ever since buying those Sleek Pout Paints I've been very excited to make a lilac, and I wasn't even sure it would work, but thankfully it did.

Video: Inspired by Alesha Dixon

 After watching the first couple of episodes of Britain's Got Talent I actually gave up on continuing to watch it, which is strange for me because I do like reality TV competition shows (The Voice, BINTM, ANTM, etc.). Nevertheless, in the first episode or two (I don't remember) Alesha Dixon was wearing a colour combination of black, white and yellow, which I LOVED.

Inspiration

So here are a bunch of pretty pictures. I won't be able to credit them really unless I happen to know the makeup artist. Just assume I found them through tumblr, since that is most likely. I'll probably do a post full of photos of my own makeup at some point.
