Beauty Haul <3

Hello my loves! ❤

If you follow me on social media you will already know that yesterday I was a model at the Limerick launch of Benefit’s They’re Real Push-Up Liner! Because of this I received a bag of goodies 🙂 I also went to do a bit of shopping and bought a few things from L’oréal so I thought I would share them with you!

Kim Kardashian Inspired Look <3

Hello Loves 🙂 ,

In light of the recent wedding between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, I thought that todays look should be in honor of the beauty queen herself. I took inspiration from a picture she recently posted on her Facebook account and re-created it for you! I loved how this look turned out even though I look nothing like her. I  think it is a look that anyone can pull off and all you need is the basics 🙂 So lets jump in..

This is the photo that I copied from:

First apply your primer, foundation, concealer and bronzer. For blush and highlight I used Kim’s Kardazzle Palette 😉

  • Using a flattop brush and any matt brown shadow (I used the Kardashian one) apply all over the crease. Blend this under your eye for a smoke-out appearance.
  • IMG_3706
  • With the same brush apply a light shimmer colour, ‘Bootycall’, above the eye itself in the center of the crease.
  • Blend a shimmer brown colour, ‘Snakebite’, above the crease in windscreen wiper motions all the way from inner to outer corner.
  • IMG_3710
  • Apply black liner to the top eyelid and white liner to the bottom. Extend the top liner into a small wing. Also extend a black wing from the outer corner of the bottom waterline. Then in the space left between the black lines, use the white liner and extend a white line. Apply mascara and/or lashes.

For lips I used a nude lipstick and pale pink gloss to finish off! 😀

Spring/Summer 2014: Pop of Colour <3

Hello loves, this is going to be a very simple, quick everyday bright look. All you will need is a matte brown eyeshadow, your favourite blush and some colourful lipstick! I am loving it, especially since it very summer orientated. So lets get started…

First set your face with a primer and apply your foundation, concealer, bronzer and fill in those brows ;). For my blush, eyeshadow and highlight I only used my Kim’s Kardazzle palette 🙂

  • Prime your eyes using a concealer or eyeshadow primer.
  • Taking a matt brown colour and a blending brush gently blend this into the crease from outer corner to inner corner. Blend upwards towards your browbone and apply on your outer ‘V’ also.
  • Apply some winged liner and mascara. *Also false lashes if comfortable!
  • Highlight your browbone and cheekbones using a white highlighter.
  • Using a pink blush, apply to the apples of your cheeks and pat upwards towards the top of your ear.

Moving onto the lips, use any bright coloured lipstick that you own! I used MAC Show Orchid.

  • Line your lips with the lipstick using a small pointed lip brush and apply the lipstick all over the lips.
  • Remember to mositurise your lips before you apply anything using a chapstick 🙂

I hope you enjoy this look and try it out! ❤  Stay Beautiful! Xo

Everyday Look <3

Hello my loves,

I know this was meant to go up yesterday but something came up and I didn’t have the time 😦 anyways, its better late than never right? 😉 This is my go-to everyday look when I’m going to college and don’t have a lot of time to get ready. It takes me between 15-20 minutes depending. Let’s jump in!

NB: I didn’t use any foundation with this look, I just used cream concealers!!

  • Prime your face and apply concealer in a triangular shape on the forehead, under eyes and chin. Down the bridge of your nose and along your jawline. You can blend all this out, or you can then use a darker cream concealer to contour your cheekbones, nose and forehead. Blend this all out and keep blending until everything is airbrushed looking and perfect 🙂 
  • Apply peachy or pink tone blush and some highlighter!
  • Fill in your eyebrows and prime your eyelids with eye primer or concealer.

Before you start on your eyes, you will need a fluffy eyeshadow brush, a flat top brush and a small blending brush.

  • Taking the fluffy brush, blend a soft brown colour into your crease from outer corner to inner corner and blend upwards.
  • IMG_3471IMG_3473
  • Using setting spray or eyedrops, wet the flat brush and then apply an eyeshadow highlight all over the lid.
  • IMG_3474IMG_3475
  • Go back in with the fluffy brush and go over just the crease area.
  • Using a medium brown shadow and the small blending brush, apply this to the outer ‘V’ of your eye and up into the crease and blend back and forth.
  • IMG_3478IMG_3477
  • Use the bigger blending brush to blend some more and add more depth!
  • Apply some eyeliner (not necessary), mascara and falsies which again are not necessary!
  • IMG_3480IMG_3481
  • If your comfortable with it, blend either of the brown shadows under your lower lashline.

For lips you can just apply some chapstick or a nude lipstick!! ❤

Stay Beautiful, XO

This is a look I created for a friend yesterday, it is using only the Naked3 and Naked Basics pallettes and some lashes for that something extra. It is very easy to recreate and looks gorgeous on everybody. To create this look yourself just keep reading..

Lid: Walk of Shame (all over)

Crease: Naked2(BLEND, BLEND, BLEND)

Naked3 Colours:

Mix both Nooner and Liar on the same brush and BLEND this all the way from inner corner to outer corner of your crease. (Keep blending until you are happy with the result.) Also, blend these colours into your bottom eyelid to open them up and complete the look.

If you want jazz it up and add a bit more depth to the eye take a little bit of Factory and blend this down the outer corner of the eye and up into the crease again.
