Classic Red Lip and Winged Liner Make Up Look

make-up-3make-up

Hello Lovelies.  It’s been a while since my last post but time just feels like it flies by so quickly lately that I barely have time to blog. I also really wanted to do a post linked to a brand new YouTube video- my second ever you know! So here we are with another make up look. This one is super simple although you wouldn’t think it from the list of products. In my opinion its a bit of a classic. Plus I wanted to experiment creating the perfect red lip and try out my new NYX lip liner. FYI it’s awesome especially for a mere £5.  I have been experiencing some technical issues with filming so here’s to hoping I’ll get that all sorted out and can use my new camera soon. Enjoy… make-up-2make-up-5

Warm Toned Autumn Make Up Look

make-up make-up2

So I figured it had been such a long time since I’d done a make up post on here. I still love make up as much as ever so lets share the love. It’s also the first ever time I’ve branched out to film a little tutorial to go alongside my post. Yes it seems I’m moving with the times and getting acquainted with YouTube! I’ve actually wanted to try filming something for ages and  think video is by far the best media when it comes to make up tutorials. I don’t know about you but I find it super difficult to follow written instructions. Obviously my editing skills are terrible at this point so please be kind…

Of course I’ve gone for an Autumn inspired look- I mean what else would I really do? I’m all about the Autumnal posts right now. I absolutely love the Naked 2 palette for warm tones so really it was a no brainer. It’s got to be my favourite out of all the Naked palettes. Probably because its suits my colouring best. I’ve used MAC Lip Pencil  in Bittersweet all over my lips and then layered Nars Lip Pencil in Walkyrie over the top. I think it gives a really striking look and I do love a bold lip, especially for Autumn/ Winter. Although looking at these photos my lip liner looks super wobbly which makes me sad!

Sleek Highlighting Palette

Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette- Boots HERE

Let’s talk highlighters. Now I don’t know about you but I’ve always preferred highlighting way more than contouring. Maybe it’s because I love glowy glowy skin or maybe its down to my extreme paleness making contour look like weird oranges patches on my skin (no thanks!). Whatever the reason I love a good glow, especially for spring. So when I came across this little Sleek Solstice Palette in Boots I couldn’t resist it’s marbley goodness.

I’m a big Sleek fan anyway: I love their blushers, their packaging looks way pricier than it is, products come with a good sized mirror, they’re always super pigmented shades, all products are cruelty free … I could go on. So I’ve got to say after vigorous testing this is a new favourite of mine. It includes one cream highlighter (Ecliptic) one shimmer powder (Subsolar) and two baked powders (Hemisphere and Equinox). There’s also a brush included but honestly I never use the free brush so I can’t say that makes a lot of difference.

On the box Sleek suggest that you use the shades as follows: Ecliptic on the brow bone (I also used it on the inner corners of my eyes) Subsolar on the bridge of the nose, Hemisphere on the cheekbones and Equinox on the cupid’s bow. In reality the shades are a lot more pigmented than on camera and the individual colours really come through. My personal favourite is probably Subsolar (on my nose). Although I do really like the creamy texture of Ecliptic too which works really well for highlighting the corner of your eyes. Have you tried any Sleek products? Thoughts?

Super Glossy Lips

makeup8makeupmakeup4makeup5

It has to be said that I love a glossy lip. IRL my glossy lips stick to everything- my hair, food, random bits of fluff and on occasions even my clothing. But for aesthetic purposes in a blog photo I love a glossy lip…

Illamasqua Intense Lipglosses are really really intense. They go on very thick so mistakes are easily made- see my slightly overdrawn lip line for details! I’ve used shade Hermetic which is unfortunately no longer available (boo!) but they do have a big variety of colours online including a bright green- Halloween lips anyone? I’ve layered it over MAC Ruby Woo lipstick to make the red pop a bit more as the colour is super dark if applied on its own. I think it goes perfectly with a simple gold eyeshadow.

Lipgloss yay or nay? Let me know your thoughts…
