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!

Christmas reindeer

Uncategorized

Ok, so for Christmas Eve my family chose to have a fancy dress night – christmas edition.

So I began looking on youtube for some makeup inspiration. I came across some reindeer makeup tutorials and absolutely fell in love!

To create the cute reindeer look, I began by applying a light foundation all over my face using my Mac stippling brush. Then, using my NYX eyeliner in a matte light brown, I detailed my nose and filled it with a white eyeliner. I also covered my forehead and cheekbones with the same white colour to create a main focal point.

Using my Benefit Hoola bronzer and a large fluffy brush, I covered my cheekbones and my hairline to darken my skin but keeping the focus on the white areas. I applied the same white dots to my cheeks and forehead the created a nose and mouth using my Revlon liquid eyeliner in Black.

My favourite part of this look was the eyes, I kept it quite minimal with light eyeshadow and white eyeliner but added a set of Katy Perry Lashes to emphasises the Bambi like appearance! I added a simple cat eye look with the same liquid eyeliner and finished of the look by adding a set of antlers.

This makeup look was so simple and easy to do and is a great and fun look using makeup that Everyone has in their draws.

Merry Christmas everyone!
Stay tuned for my christmas makeup haul…..

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
