Metalic Eyes

Hello there,

Do you like metalic colours in your makeup? I do! In fact I *LoVe* them & my favourite right now is Gosh Forever Eye Shadow Stick.  £5.99

There’s a whole range of them, I’ve 3 at the moment, but gradually building up my collection every payday.

They’re very pigmented & have some serious lasting power.  I love how you can build them up & make different colours as they’re so blendable.  I also use them as a base for dry shadows to help make their colour pop more.

Have you tried these shadows? Let me know what you think!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Perfect Eyeliner In A Flash

HellO there lovelies,

Today I’m talking about that never ending struggle we all face, liquid eyeliner. Why is it one always turns out ok then sure enough when it comes to doing the other eye it looks as though a toddler drew on you while you were asleep.
I’d pretty much given up hope of ever doing a decent lined eye until I started using something that lives in every single one of our homes. Cellotape.

Here’s what I’m using. MUA Gel Eyeliner (£3). Like it says on the bottle it’s a gel, so careful with how much you add when dipping the brush in as it can get messy quickly.

image

Cut maybe an inch of tape off, stick it down on a towel & peel off, do this a few times to dull the stickiness.  Now line it up just under the corner of your eye & pat it down.  Run the gelled brush along the tape then up your lash line, make it as thin or thick as your wee heart desires.  Let it dry for a minute then peel it off slowly.
Et voila!  A perfectly straight line!

image

Now that the base is down it’s time to have a bit of fun.  I’m still in love with my MakeUp Base pallette so I brought out the rainbow eyes again.  

image

As you can see from both angles the line is perfect.  It really is impossible to mess this up, believe me! If I can do this anyone can. 
Again the only things to remember are to make sure you’ve lined the tape up under the corner of your eye.  Take your time applying the gel & also go slow when taking the tape off. 
You’ll have the perfect foundation that’ll really make your eyeshadow pop. 
You could do this with glittered or coloured liner also, there are so many options with this one. 
Give it a whirl & have fun with it.

Thanks so much so stopping by.

Rainbow Eyes

HellOo,

Apologies for missing my post on Friday you guys, naughty blogger.

AnyhoO I’m back today talking about big bright bold eyes.

image

Are you a fan?
I reeeeeeally want to be so I got this Beauty UK Posh Pallette In ‘Festival’ (£4.99) to see if it’s a fan of me.

Don’t worry I haven’t ran out & bought yet another mascara, my pal let me try out her Benefit They’re Real.  But I probably will go out & buy it at some stage because it’s a bit amazing.

image

There’s some really vibrant shades in the pallette, but if I could’ve I would’ve swapped the black for red, before you say, the top left if orange, it does look a bit red here.  There is some fall out so in future I’ll do my eyes before foundation so it’s really not a bit deal, plus you’re getting 10 colours for under a fiver.

I *LoVE* these colours.  There’s so many to mix & match.  I think they’re super fun, they’d definately brighten up any outfit, if you’re like me you don’t have a massive wardrobe to draw from these are most definately a way to add an extra element to an old favourite.

Would you do tropical eyes? Or what colours would you pair up?

Thanks so much for stopping by.
