Extreme Gel Liner



Hey guys!

I bought a new gel liner this week so I thought I’d do a make up look using it. I’ve done something different to what I’d usually do, which is generally a 50s style feline eye. For this look I used the liner as a base and created the extreme winged shape- a lot easier to achieve than with a powder eye shadow. I then layered black and gunmetal eye shadow on top and blended around the edges. As I’m getting slightly obsessed with brights this summer I’ve used a pale pink to blend into my brow bone and underneath my eyes and a frosty pink gloss on my lips.

I was actually planning to get a Topshop gel liner as I’ve heard really good reviews but my local Topshop don’t stock the make up range unfortunately! Bobbi Brown is out of my price range until payday so I bought my old favourite Loreal (above). I bought it from Boots for just under a tenner but its available in Superdrug and big supermarkets too. I’m not a fan of the brush that comes with it for precise lines but the liner has really good staying power and I never need to reapply it.

I’m getting really inspired by a lot of beauty articles lately so I’d like to do more of these looks and maybe some face paint and special effects make up- which is something I haven’t done much of before.

So until next time…. Goodnight, have an amazing weekend!

old clothes

Hey Everyone! 

So it’s a little late for this but basically this is what I got up to this weekend… not massively thrilling but I’m heading home this weekend  as I have 4 days off which I’m super excited for! I also still need to get round to sorting out my page design but it just seems like a huge chore right now…

Cami/vest- River Island (old), Trousers- Topshop , Trainers- Nike (old but similar available), Watch- Michael Kors (old), Rings- Primark 

Chris looking freakishly wrinkly- I just don’t know….

The huge beer list- these are ALL beers!
As I’m really skint right now due to moving house and holidays; I’ve been trying to wear old clothes in a way I wouldn’t have before so I’ve dug out my Nike Air Max and paired them with some tailored trousers. I’m really loving that simple Scandinavian look right now although I’m not achieving it anywhere near as well as some of the guys on Lookbook. 

My outfit posts are taken in Duthie Park but I just thought I’d add a few pictures from the amazing bar 6 degrees North which specializes in beers- I’ve honestly never seen a selection like it. I actually really don’t drink beer under normal circumstances but I tried a cherry beer which was so good! We also got a mezze platter to eat, unfortunately I didn’t capture this moment but their homemade chutney was also so lovely. 

I’m aware beer isn’t gluten free but it was a one off and on that subject after much research I bought some Genius Bread. For anyone who suffers from gluten intolerance or just wants to eat healthier I literally couldn’t fault it so I’ve just linked their page!

Have a lovely evening whatever you’re up to!!

yellow smokey eyes

So I’ve had a bit of a sad week since I returned from Berlin. There’s no reason in particular I guess I’m just feeling a little homesick. To cheer up I’ve spent some time doing some bright make up looks on myself- this actually doesn’t look so bright but I did intend to be a yellow smokey eye. I’ve seen yellow eye shadow everywhere lately and I’ve just used a blend of two from my college palette (I did a fashion photography make up course a while back). I definitely feeling like I’ll be investing in a bright palette when pay day comes around now- one with a stronger pigment. I actually really like the yellow with this MAC lipstick so I think this purchase is very necessary.

I also did a look inspired by the make up of my teenage years but I don’t think I’m brave enough to post that one online as it’s not at all flattering….in the slightest. Even Chris was taken back by that one. I should be out and about in Aberdeen tomorrow so I’ll try and get some pictures of what I’m up to.

Until next time…. Happy Weekend!!
