#100DaysOfMakeup : Day Seventeen!

I’m giving my eyes a rest today so my skin can recover so I’ve gone back to my lips instead. This liquid lipstick is my new favourite, mostly because it actually smells like watermelon. Jeffree Star hit the nail on the head with his lipsticks (and is anyone else super excited for the Lip Ammunition range?).

The products I used were:


I’m all about using liquid eyeliner as lip liner. It works so well and means you can have super vibrant colours and even a few sparkles, hope you like it!

#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 5!

Today sees the first full look that I’ve done. In the post this morning I received a lovely package that contained my first ever liquid lipstick from Jeffree Star Cosmetics and I was so excited to try it that a whole look had to come from it for my 100 days challenge.

Here’s everything I used:


Firstly, I apply a pea-sized amount of primer all over my face and then I go in with my foundation and use a large oval brush to apply it. I then take a small, angled brush and carve and fill in my brows before going in with my concealer to clean up the edges. Then with my concealer, I paint triangles beneath my eyes, a stripe down the centre of my nose and a v on my chin, before blending all of that out with a damp beauty blender. For contouring, I first get my base with a cream contour, drawing a tiny stripe beneath cheekbones and then blending it out with a beauty blender. I then draw three small lines around my forehead and blend those out too. With a flat bronzer brush, I take a powder contour and set the cream and add extra definition. With a small oval brush, I use the same powder and contour my nose. I then use a powder brush and add blush to the apples of my cheeks, and then a fan brush to apply highlighter to my cheekbones, tip and bridge of my nose and my brow bones. Base : done.

For my eyes, I drew a simple wing with my Vivid Brights liner and added three dots with a small dotting tool of white liner underneath the wing. Add some mascara and I’m done!

For the lips, I just applied a generous coat of the Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick. I love this shade and I love the fact that it actually smells light watermelon even more. To finish I applied some highlighter to my cupids bow.

So there we go. I hope you love it. What shade of Jeffree’s Liquid Lipstick should I invest in next?

#100DaysOfMakeup : Day Four!

Today is something completely simple, but something that’s sure to get you plenty of compliments! I’ve gone for a simple ombre lip from pink to purple. Of course this is totally interchangeable so feel free to let your imagination run wild.

A short list of products for you today, but nonetheless, here’s what I used:


To create this, all I did was take the purple liquid lipstick and use the very tip of the wand (though you could use a brush if you prefer) and lined my lips, adding in a bit more colour in the corners but leaving the central part of the lips bare. I then took my pink lipstick and filled in the blank space. To get the perfect blend it was just a case of smacking and rubbing my lips together a few times, and that was it, lip look complete!

I love ombre lip looks. I think they’re a great way to start experimenting with colour but it also allows you to create something a little more unique.

#100DaysOfMakeup : Day One!

Well hello there! It’s the first of September and so I have decided that from now until the 9th December I shall be taking on the #100DaysOfMakeup challenge over on my instagram!

For those of you who don’t follow my instagram (though you totally can here), I’ll be posting the looks here with a mini step by step and the list of products I used so you can re-create them if you wish.

So today I’m kicking it off with a look I’ve named Rocky Road because the colour scheme reminded me of the sweet treat. My product list is as follows:


So for the eyes, I firstly drew my wing in black liner. My top tip would be to draw the height of your wing first i.e from the outer corner of your eye up towards your eyebrow, and then, with a sponge so you don’t get grubby fingers on your makeup if you’re the kind who does foundation first, gently pull the skin taut. Then draw a line from the most hooded part of your eye until it meets the line you’ve previously drawn. You should then get the perfect flick and its just a case of joining it to your lash line.

I then took a pink liquid liner and lined the top edge of the wing. With a white liquid liner, I placed a splodge on my hand and dipped a small dotting tool into it to create the dots in my inner corner and underneath the wing.

For the lips, I first outlined the lips in a brown liquid lipstick. I then took a light pink lipstick and a small lip brush and painted in the middle. To add more colour and shimmer, I stippled on some pink pigment and it was as simple as that!

I hope you’re going to join me on this journey and are looking forward to it as much as I am. There’ll be a category on here so you can find all my looks easily.
