Eyeliner magic ft. Ted Baker

Uncategorized

Ssssshhhh, Im going to let you all in on my little secret to the perfect winged eyeliner…..

Applying any kind of eyeliner to the eye can be tricky. However I have some extremely simple hints and tips to help make your eyes stand out from the crowd to get the perfect winged look.

1. Once the eyeliner is applied, set it with a similar colour shade to keep it in place.

2. Use a pencil eyeliner first as a guide for drawing the perfect flick.

3. Use the edges of a spoon or business card to create the perfect shape for your winged eyeliner look.

4. Always line your flick towards the end of your eyebrow.

5. Use small precise movements to prevent the eyelid from creasing and your eyeliner being uneven.

Ted Bakers felt liner is ideal for me, its felt tip is not flimsy, allowing for a more accurate application. It is highly pigmented and lasts all day without  budging.

Festive Maroon Smokey Eyes

Uncategorized

Happy New Year!

The festive season means plenty of parties so here is my festive look for the season.

I love anything maroon as it just reminds me of christmas. Its a bold colour that works well for all skin types and can be easily dressed up or down.

I began by priming my eyes with Urban Decay’s primer potion and began by applying the first shade from the Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette,Strange‘, all over my lids. Using Makeup Revolutions ‘I heart chocolate’ palette, I used the shade ‘What a way to go’ which is a gorgeous maroon colour, in the corner of my eye and crease. I blended this out with a fluffy brush to really create the smokey effect. Using a smaller detail brush I applied the shade ‘Love Torn’, which is a red/brown colour, in my crease and outer V, I then used another fluffy brush to blend this all together.

Using Ted Baker’s gold eyeliner, I lined my bottom lashes to add some sparkle and pop to compliment the festive deep red colours.

I then used Ted Baker’s liquid eyeliner in Black to line my upper lash line into a winged look. I use small strokes to get the perfect and precise detail. Once finished, I curled my lashes and applied my favourite mascara, Max Factor’s max volume and high definition mascara, making sure to get right to the base of my lashes to lengthen them further.

Natural glam New Years Eve Makeup tutorial

Uncategorized

It’s almost here!

Another year almost over, and it has been amazing!
Now, I love New Years Eve, welcoming in the new year with family and friends but when I have a large amount of makeup on, I feel a bit self conscious of it getting all over my face after one too many cocktails……..

So, I have come up with a natural glam look that is fuss free and is easy to maintain all night without it being too heavy and needing constant touch ups…

Let’s begin!

To start, I applied my favourite foundation by Maybelline in the shade True Ivory using my Mac 187 brush to create a flawless base.

Then using my Makeup Revolution concealers in the lightest shade, I covered my dark circles and it also acts as a great highlight to add more definition to my cheekbones.

I filled my brows in with my ELF brow kit in the shade dark and began work on my lids…

To start, I used a shimmery white base all across my eyelid, not going up to my brow bone…

I then used a champagne colour in the centre of my lid and blended this towards the corner. I then chose a shimmery dark brown and concentrated this in the outer corner of my eye in a V shape. Using a fluffy blending brush, I softened this out to create an elegant smokey eye.

Using my Ted Baker felt tip eyeliner, I lined my lash line into a cat eye using small strokes to create a flawless line.

And finally, I used my favourite mascara by Max Factor to really add some volume to my lashes… And I didn’t even have to curl them!

Now I love this look as I am not constantly worrying about my face all night! It’s natural and light but created amazing definition and sparkle for a celebratory day and night!

I wish you all a very happy new year always remember to follow your dreams..

The Classic

Uncategorized

Eyes are extremely important in everyday life. They are the first place to look. So a classic eye makeup helps emphasise and put focus on the actual beauty of our eyes.

For my everyday eyes, I use two things.

Mascara and Eyeliner. Simple.

My favourite mascara is the ‘Benefit- They’re real’. It is unbelievable.
I do a first coat, making sure to get right to the base of my lashes then let it dry for about 30 seconds before applying my second coat.
I find that applying a second coat when my first coat is still a bit tacky helps make my lashes look elongated, longer and flawless.

I then apply my eyeliner, I love Loreal’s ‘Superliner Luminizer’. Its felt tip is flexible to it moulds itself to the curve of your lash line which makes it super easy to apply.
Not only does it create an effortless everyday look but can be turned from day to night extremely easily by intensifying the cat eye!

I cannot wait to use this look for my upcoming parties and events, it will go along perfectly with a smokey glittery eye…. Look out for that look very soon.

Love C x
