#100DaysOfMakeup : Day Sixteen!

Calling anyone with a sweet tooth for this look. This one is inspired by my favourite flavour of cake, cupcake and Oreo; Red Velvet.

The products I used were:


For this one, it was kind of like doing a cut crease. I used a deep burgundy in my crease and then used concealer to clean up the lid. I then left a little gap and packed red shadow onto my lid, creating a small wing at the outer corner. I filled in that gap with white liquid liner and then got a little creative with it!

Hope you like it!

#100DaysOfMakeup : Day Nine!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, or if you know me personally, you’ll know I have an obsession with unicorns, so much so that I actually have a unicorn tattooed on my arm. So, when I saw the latest eyeliner trend started by @glowawaymeg on instagram, I just had to give it a go, but by putting my own magical twist on it.

I have to admit, this was not as easy as I originally thought or planned, I had to redo the unicorn horn so many times, but alas, I finally perfected it and I’m so happy with how it turned out. I’ll do my best to explain how I did it, but I apologise in advance if it sounds confusing.

The list of products I used are as follows:


So in order to create this, (after I’d done my brows) I took a small angled brush and marked out where I wanted my cut crease to be with each colour of the rainbow. Then, I took a small packing brush and went along with each colour to add a bit more and blend it out to how I desired. I cleaned up the crease with concealer and then edged the cut crease in gold liquid liner.

Next, I drew the white wing. Then I took my gold liquid liner and used that to fill in the rest of where my eyeliner would usually be before pressing gold glitter into it before it dried. In order to make the wing look like a horn, I took a dotting tool and dipped it in the white liner and I added dots each side of the white to round it out, gradually bringing the dots closer to the centre as I reached the tip so that it would sort of taper. I then took some grey eyeshadow and created the ridges of the horn so that it look like a spiral.

For the helix part, I took my gold liner and created S shapes so that it looked like the gold glitter was wrapping around the horn.

On my lower lash line I copied the rainbow from the cut crease, and then in my inner corner I made a star out of white liquid liner. After some mascara and lashes, I was finally done.

Hopefully you can sort of make sense of this and I hope you like this as much as I do.

#100DaysOfMakeup : Day 6!

For today’s look I’ve dipped into something seasonal. Right now it’s the time for warm browns, rusts and gold. It’s coming into autumn! But of course I couldn’t resist adding a bit of glitter and sparkle. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t!

It’s a long list of products today, but here you go :


Yesterday I gave you the run down on how I do my base, so I’m going to jump right into my eye makeup. Today I went for another cut crease, so with a light brown colour (shade 6), I shaped out the crease with an angled brush. Then I took a fluffy brush and blended it out a little. Then I took a bronze colour (shade 12) and blended upwards towards my brow from the inner corner of the crease to the centre of the crease with a small fluffy brush. With the same brush I dipped into a darker brown that still had some shimmer to it (shade 27) and blended from the centre of the crease to the outer corner. To define the cut a little more, I took a tiny packing brush and dipped into some black (shade 26). I blended that out with the fluffy brush that still had the dark brown shade on it.

I then took some concealer and carved out and cleaned up the cut crease. With the first brown shade I used, I laid down a base on the lid, leaving a few millimetres gap between the cut and the shadow on the lid. I then covered this with some glitter primer and patted on some brown glitter from the inner corner to the centre, and from the centre outwards I patted on gold glitter.

Next I took my felt tip eyeliner and drew on a small wing, also adding a tiny one in the inner corner of my eye. With a white eyeshadow (shade 1) I added an inner corner highlight. With the tiny packing brush that had the black on, I ran that underneath my lower lash line, before taking the fluffy brush that had the brown on to blend and smoke it out a bit. Some mascara and false lashes and I was done!

For the lips I first lined my lips with a dark brown liquid lipstick. I also over-line my lips because I have a small top lip so I like to try and make it look fuller. Then I filled in the middle of my lips with gold lipstick, smacked my lips together for a good blend and the look was complete.

What do you think? What are you thinking for your fall looks?

#100DaysOfMakeup : Day Two!

Today I’ve decided to stick with the current trend and go for metallics. I’ve created a rose gold cut crease defined in gold glitter liner which is really simple but will go well with the upcoming autumn wardrobe!

The products I used are as follows:


Firstly, I drew out my cut crease with a really light colour just so I could get the over all shape to follow, and then with a small packing brush, I went in with a bronze colour to define the crease. I then took that same brush with the rose gold colour and blended over a bigger area towards the brow before going in with a fluffy brush to get the blend I wanted.

I then got my concealer and a concealer brush and carved out the crease to make it really defined and clean. To set it, I then went back in with the bronze colour and put it all over my lid.

To add some sparkle, I took a gold glitter liner and followed the shape of the cut crease as well as drawing on some winged liner. I went over a good few times so that it was maximum sparkle, but of course that’s all personal preference.

Then all that was left was to add mascara and lashes and I was done!

The good thing about looks like this is that they’re completely versatile and interchangeable. You can pick whatever combination you like. I think a blue and silver version of this would look really cool.
