#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!

Try It Out Tuesday : Mykie’s Smokey Rose Gold!

This week I’m going back to one of my favourite YouTubers; Mykie, or as she’s better known – Glam&Gore. She recently uploaded a tutorial base around rose gold which is such a popular shade now and is right on trend for autumn and the rise of the metallics.

I was surprise by how easy this tutorial was. I’m still perfecting my blending skills but the placement and blending of these colours was really easy and worked well. I think these colours are also great shades for any skin tone. Mykie’s a lot paler than me so I figure the colours might not work, but actually, they’re a bit less pigmented but still compliment my skin tone.

What I also really love is the added shading in the arches of the nose. It’s not something I’ve really seen before and I was slightly fearful of it, but now that I’ve tried it, I really love the dimension it adds and it also makes the eye look a lot bigger.

Mykie also played to my weak spot with this look. She added glitter! It really does make a difference too. It adds so much more glam to the look, but I think it really ties it together.

Here’s Mykie’s look:

And here’s the list of products I used:


If you try this look out and love it too, let me know in the comments! I’ll leave the original tutorial at the bottom of this post.
