Halloween is Approaching!

  This is a look for those who like to go a bit mad or just want to use it for a Halloween look, it can be adapted to your own taste or style. As a Halloween look it can be used for a female Devil or Vampire or if you have your own idea for it use it as you please. Its a basic smokey black eye with feather lashes and a blood red lip and also red eyebrows for a little more fun! Hope you like it :)

Zebra Print in Colour!

I know its bin a while sorry guys! But I'm back with a Bang...... of colours.
I got the inspiration for this look off a make-up artist on YouTube and also a nail art tutorial on YouTube, I said I'd give it ago and I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. its quite simple and fun. Its definitely not for everyday wear but maybe you can find use for it or just try it out for fun!

I started with my everyday foundation Rimmel (100 Ivory) 16hr long lasting full coverage, then I used my neon eyeshadow pallet and placed the colours in different areas you can have fun with this and play around both eyes can be different, when your happy with the base of colours scrunch up your eyes as tight as you can one at a time (get a friend to help if you need to do both at the same time) and get a fluffy blending brush and with a matte black eye shadow (I used Calvin Klein 111 Night Dust) and softly blend it across your eyes while you have then scrunched up. When you open your eyes it'll have a zebra look too it (try your best to get it right 1st time around its hard to go back over it) It should look something like this.









When you have that finished tight line your eyes and with a gel liner, line your lash line as close as you can, then with your favourite mascara use lashings of it on your lashes. I then cleaned up my foundation with concealer and under the eyes, powder your hole face lightly (be careful around the eye area) contour your checks with a matte bronzer. Your skin is now done... you can leave your lips very natural with a clear or pink tint gloss or as i did go mad and use a very bright lipstick i used Orange by BeYu.






  Hope you like this look guys try it out for yourself and remember to

A Moment Of Madness.

As the title says this was a little "moment of madness" playing with Make-up with no idea or vision just time to play... my favourite way to do Make-up! Its a mixture of greens and yellows.


I started out with a green cream eyeshadow all over my lid then on top I used a forest green eyeshadow blended into a lighter green and I used a pressed yellow eyeshadow as the highlighter, I then filled in my brows with a brown shadow and used a thin liner brush and a gel liner along my lash line and lashings of mascara. And on the lips I used Pillar Box Red (a lush vibrant red). After that just my everyday foundation and a translucent powder and bronzer to give depth to my cheek bones.

Nails, nails, nails!

Soooooooooooo... finally I got a chance to get down and do my nails again :)
I hope you can get where I'm going with them and you can give them ago yourself. I hope they work out, I only did two nails this time and I changed it up a little so let me no how they work out for you. They are very easy to do you just need patience and a steady hand :) I have pic's and I'll explain step by step how i did them.

What you need:

White OPI Varnish
Metallic Silver W7
Jet Black NYC
(Any) Top Coat
Tiny/Thin Paint Brush
Nail Varnish Remover
Cotton Buds


1st: Start with your base coat I used metallic silver by W7 and white by OPI and change it up with every 3rd or 2nd nail painted white. Do two good coats of the two colours and let them dry completely.


2nd: Using your paint brush and the NYC jet black shape out your leopard print different sizes directions and shapes. And then patientently do the zebra print (copy the picture) and let them dry again.


3rd: When the black is completely dry fill in the leopard print with the OPI white and again let them dry completely and cover with a top coat if needed. Clean up and mistakes with nail varnish remover using a cotton bud and then FINITO your done! Hopefully they worked out for you :)

Mid Night Blue Smoke.

This lovely Mid Night Blue Smokey eye make up is perfect for night out of partying or clubbing! It would look great with both a black or blue/navy dress and for girls with blue eyes your eyes will stand out so much, i love this look and its very easy to do with only a few simple products and with loads of blending and you will have this look down to a tee! It is quite a heavy look so the rest of your make-up should look quite natural. 


Products I used in this look are listed below: 

 Navy cream eyeshadow
Black Glitter loose eyeshadow
 Gun Metal Grey pressed eyeshadow
  Light grey loose eyeshadow 
♥ Metallic White loose eyeshadow 
Bright Sky Blue pressed eyeshadow
 NYC Volume Mascara
 Calvin Kline Gel Eyeliner
 



Hope you like it.. I will have more Make-up looks up in the next few days and please keep following  and commenting and a huge THANK YOU ♥ to everyone who has followed and commented so far!


And if anyone would like to see how I did my nails please comment...
 if enough people asked for it i'll put up step by step pictures on how to do it :)

I'm Back....

Hey Guys, 
Sorry I haven't bin putting up posts in the last few weeks i was working and also had no internet :( for a few weeks but I'm back! I'm still working on my "whats next" looks, I will have 3 looks up very very soon but for now i wanna show you my March haul.... I went to my favorite make-up store in town it has some great deals and there stuff is lovely so pretty and well packaged it sells all sort of products and brands from expensive to very cheap. I love it... anyway enough talking I'm gonna show you pics of what I bought and give u a little insight to what i think of each product .

March Haul.

I bought Calvin Klein loose powder and Black gel eye liner, Velvet Lip Colour 
and Skin Essentias 24 hour Moisturizer. 

Calvin Klein Loose Powder.
This Calvin Klein Loose Powder is in Translucent its brill it really dose keep your foundation in place and unlike some Translucent powders has no tint to it some I'v used in the past darkened my foundation even tho they were ment to be translucent in colour but this one is the best I'v used so far! And i'v only had it 2 weeks and I'v used hardly any it goes a really long way. Here in Ireland it cost €7:99 and it also comes with a handy powder puff, the only bad thing i'd say is the holes at the top of the container are to big and every time u move the container powder comes out in handfuls but you can easily shake it back into the tub.

Calvin Klein Gel Liner.


I Love this Gel Eye Liner its my favorite it lasts so long and also its not to hard or soft its just right and spreads brilliantly you only need a tiny amount and is so easy to manipulate and make lines and designs with. I absolutely love Calvin Klein's packaging also its really modern and classic! I have noting bad to say about this eye liner it costs €6:99 and I love it!

Velvet Lip Colour.
This Lip Colour is like a lip stick in a tub but with more of a powdery finish its lovely to wear but very light colour its a white/pink like a baby pink wit more of a bright pink tint to it. Its costs me €1:00 and I really like it but I don't wear it to often looks great with Brown Smokey Eye or classic winged eye liner. 


Skin Essentials.
I'm really liking this moisturizer I decided to change My moisturizer up and i picked this one, I liked the look of it and its great really light and soaks in lovely to your skin and leaves a lovely smooth finish. Its only €3:95 and its last ages because you need so little of it. I have noting bad to say about this either, I was very happy with everything I bought and would recommend it all for you to try!

Circus Eyes.

A little bit of madness inspired by The Circus.... just from the colours and the craziness of the look in general and the top hat finished the look off. I used this picture in my portfolio for college and I was very happy with it! Its a hard look to put into word but just look and make what you want of it and try copy it if you like. Very long list of products used so match up and use what you have even if you chance the colours altogether... the lashes were purchased in a discount store for €2:99 and I love them, just shows not everything has to cost a fortune and can be just as good as something that cost very little... so keep your eyes open to bargains!
