#100DaysOfMakeup : Day Twenty Three!

I was trying to think of some fall looks to add into my 100 Days challenge and I knew I wanted something with browns and golds, but also something a little arty. Weirdly, I found my inspiration on Snapchat and it came from the butterfly filter which definitely has to be my favourite. If you don’t know what it looks like, here’s a little picture for you:


And here’s the list of products I used :


This look was actually super easy to do, it didn’t take me long at all. And, not to blow my own trumpet, but that wing I did today is slaying!

If you have any ideas for me, please put them in the comments.

#100DaysOfMakeup : Day Twenty Two!

Today I really put my artistry skills to the test. It took a few strips of cello tape, a steady hand and a lot of concentration, but I have to say, the end result looks so much better than what I’d originally thought up in my head.

The products I used were:


I have to say, I’ve noticed my placement and blending skills have improved so much already. At the beginning of this, I wouldn’t have been able to get that precise stripe of white going through the centre of the purple. I also wouldn’t have been able to blend the black shadow so well. Just shows that practice really does make perfect!

#100DaysOfMakeup : Day Twenty One!

Yet another eye look because I’m suffering from a rather horrible break out around my chin area, but this one draws inspiration from one of my favourite YouTubers (you should be familiar with her name by now) Mykie a.k.a Glam&Gore and her very first NYX Face Awards Challenge where she did and Aphrodite inspired look (I’ll post the video below).

The products I used were :


My top tip for this look would be that nail art brushes are your best friend. I find it very difficult to control the product on the brush that comes with liquid liners and nail art brushes are the perfect size to be able to do tiny details. You get so much more control not just with the design, but also the amount of product of the brush meaning there’s less mess!

Another eye look today and this one has a little bit of sparkle added to it! It’s a bit more of a fun look, and I finally got to try out some glitter tears.

Here’s the products I used :


This look is mostly about blending and product placement. My tip for a good halo eye is to use your iris as a guide for where to put that central colour, which in my case was green.

#100DaysOfMakeup : Day Nineteen!

Back to eyes today and I’ve gone for a really simple look using my favourite eyeshadow palette. I also played around a bit with my eyeliner to come up with this kind of yin-yang monochrome type look.

The products I used were:


This look is really just a simple case of pairing opposites. Wherever there’s black eyeshadow goes white liner and vice versa. I also used some cello tape for a super sharp winged edge.

#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 Seven!

So I’ve made it a week in! I can’t believe it. I didn’t think I’d be able to think of different looks for every day so I’d imagined that I’d have already given up at this point but if anything, I find myself feeling more and more creative and ambitious.

Today is something slightly Rock Chick-ish if you will. It’s darker than I would usually go for, but change is good for the soul as they say.

The products I used are as below:


So firstly I went ahead and did my brows. Then with a small fluffy brush, I dusted a light brown shadow over my lid just to give it some warmth. Then I took my eyeliner and drew a wing, keeping it thin and long. With a tiny packing brush, I smudged electric blue eyeshadow underneath my lower lash line as well as extending it up underneath the winged liner. Finally, again with the eyeliner, I added a small wing in the inner corner, then with the same blue brush, I smudged in the edge of the liner to blend with the blue. Mascara, eyelashes and done!

It’s a simple look that again, is totally interchangeable and completely wearable on an everyday basis. It’s a great way to add a pop of colour to any outfit.

Here’s to another 93 days!

#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.

Is anyone else undertaking this challenge? Let me know in the comments so I can check yours out too!
