I’m not going to waste your time by writing a paragraph detailing each one. I have listed the eyeshadow names, cost, a small description and I have also swatched all 16 for you.

IMG_1938_Fotor

  1. Mirage – (US $6) – This is the best eyeshadow if your eyeshadow is not blending out in the crease well or you’ve gone too high with your eyeshadow this colour can soften the look and blend the shadow right away without being shimmery or frosty.
  2. Rapunzel – (US $6) – This is the most gorgeous eyeshadow that has just the right amount of sheen to it, its not shimmery its also not chalky as some lighter shadows can be. It is beautiful for brighten and open up your eyes.
  3. Peach Smoothie – (US $6) – This is a matte crease colour, it might not show well on darker skin tones but I personally love to mix it with other shades such as Creme Brulee and Frappeto blend them.
  4. Creme Brûlée – (US $6) – This one is a gorgeous crease colour. It looks flattering on light to medium skin tones.
  5. Dessert Sands – (US $6) – This one is beautiful ochre yellow, earthy toned colour that can warm up any crease.
  6. Frappe – (US $6) – Frappe and Creme Brulee are very similar in tones however frappe is darker.
  7. Coco Bear – (US $6) – Coco bear is a gorgeous matte brown. Reminds me of darker version of MAC’s Soft Brown eyeshadow.
  8. Americano – (US $6) – Americano is a dark brown shade, I love to use this in the outer corner of my eyes and underneath my lower lash line to smoke out the lower lash line.
  9. Cupcake – (US $6) – Cupcake is a straight up baby pink. I love experimenting with colours and it looks very flattering for a pinky purple eye look.
  10. Vintage – (US $6) – Vintage is a purply pink shade.
  11. Bitten – (US $6) – Bitten deep burgundy purple shade.
  12. Cherry Cola  – (US $6) – Cherry cola is a matte deep purplish brown shade. Cherry cola and Americano together will look the same as MAC’s Embark.
  13. Poppy – (US $6) – Poppy is right up orange. I personally found it very intimidating but once I got the hang of using it right it is gorgeous!!!
  14. Foiled Eyeshadow – Grandstand – (US $10) Grandstand is a beautiful champagney gold eyeshadow its so flattering on all skin colour.
  15. Foiled Eyeshadow – Jester – (US $10) Jester is a green shimmery eyeshadow with gold undertones in it. I love it so much for a coloured eye look.
  16. Foiled Eyeshadow – Houdini – (US $10) – Houdini is a beautiful dark greeny turquoise,Sorry I cant explain it, but its beautiful. This and a smoked out crease is all you need for a coloured smokey eye for a night time look.

Swatched them all here for you. 🙂

Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick Swatches and Review

 

Kat Von D liquid lipsticks are a few of the trendiest things that have been raved about for quite while now. Here I have swatched and reviewed a five of the most popular shades. So lets get into it.

YES YES YES, I AM ALSO ONE OF THE FANS OF THE LIQUID LIPSTICK TRENDS.

I’m sure everyone by now knows what liquid lipsticks are and what they do, but for everyone who is new to the concept, liquid lipsticks have the same application like gloss but they are very pigmented and after 1-2 minutes they set to a complete matte. I personally love the concept sometimes people are worried if these lipsticks would dry your lips, which depends on the brand. I do recommend moisturising your lips before using the liquid lipsticks.

Coming to the actual swatches, I have swatched 5 of these for you in the shades. Starting from the bottom left corner.

  1. Double Dare
  2. Mother
  3. Nosferatu
  4. Lolita
  5. Lolita 2

I have used these lipsticks to give you a good review of the formulae and the colour and if it is long-lasting. I DO NOT LIKE TO TALK ABOUT PRODUCTS I DON’T PERSONALLY LIKE.

Now the formula of the lipstick what i felt was a bit watery which was a concern to me at first thinking it wouldn’t be opaque enough. To my surprise its extremely opaque gives you a beautiful colour and its crazy long wearing. It does not move from the lips. Gorgeous product. Nothing bad to say about it except I wish I could have the berry toned shades.

Please like & comment if cleansing oils have worked well for you and which brand & shade of liquid lipsticks do you enjoy, I’d really love to know.

Day Glam Make-Up Tutorial

 

IMG_1650_Fotor20

Hi everyone welcome to my blog. Today I’m doing a make up tutorial for you all. I wanted to do something that has sheen without it looking too glittery on the eyes. I have written down and listed all the products I used to achieve this look. Alright so lets get into it.

IMG_1590_Fotor4

I started with applying a moisturiser all over my face. Then I primed my eyes using the MAC Pro long wear Concealer in the shade NC 42 with a damp beauty blender. I used the same beauty blender to powder all around the under eye and the eye lids to set the concealer in place. This will also help my eyeshadows to blend easily without caking or looking patchy.

IMG_1603_Fotor6

I then used the eyeshadows from the Smashbox full exposure palette for transition and the crease. I used this you can use anything you have in your collections the colours are just the dark and a light brown on top of each other to add depth to the eye area

I used the Maybelline colour tattoo in the shade barely branded in the inner corner and the centre of the lid and gently blended it outward

I buffed in a bit of black eyeshadow from the same Smashbox full exposure palette in the outer corners of the eyes pulling the it outwards to lift the eyes.

I then went in with a MAC Fix plus on my brush and L’OREAL Infallible eyeshadow in the colour Hourglass Beige to intensify the colour on the lids.

IMG_1631_Fotor14

I had a emotional breakdown as my favourite eyeliner quit working half way in so I went in with Inglot gel liner to finish the look. I filled my brows in using Maybelline Master Brow Pro Palette and L’OREAL brow plumper (any brow gel would do). I used the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold volume lifting Mascara.

IMG_1664_Fotor21

I completed the rest of my face using MAC Studio sculpt foundation in NC 40. Added a bit of contour using the MAC bronzing powder in matte bronze and for the lips i used Double Dare liquid lipstick by KAT VON D.

8 Drugstore Products that every makeup lover should own

Here are 8 drugstore products that every make up lover should own. We are often looking for good products that don’t burn a hole in your wallet. Here are 8 such great quality yet, affordable products that deserve a place in your makeup drawer. Professional celebrity artist use many of these products on celebrities. In my opinion Drugstore brands have really started pushing their product quality game to new limits.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream: These gorgeous long lasting lip products feel like a buttery mousse on the lips. They are long lasting, available in many beautiful colours. It is very different lip product to a lipstick or a gloss. I’d call it a liquid lipstick that does not dry your lips and keeping it feeling and looking voluptuous.

 

Maybelline-Lash-Sensational-Mascara

MAYBELLINE Lash Sensational Mascara: Extremely dark to spread open your lashes. It can take any make up to another level without the use of false lashes. This voluminous mascara opens up your eyes and makes you look more awake.

L’OREAL True Match Foundation: Super blendable and great for all skin types. One of the only drugstore foundations that don’t clog your pores and it mimics your skin colour. This foundation offers a medium to full coverage and makes your skin look healthier.

68bc700b7185208538a1bb9cfc9eb7d1

L’OREAL Magic Lumi Light Reflecting Primer: Everyone craving for that luminous glow, look no more this beautiful primer has a light consistency with a pearly glaze to it when applied to the skin it looks like the skin is glowing from within.

fit-me-shades

MAYBELLINE Fit Me Concealer: One of the all time favourites of many bloggers and vloggers around the globe. This concealer is creamy in texture so it wont dry your skin and does not crease in fine lines under your eyes. A definite must have for concealing those dark circles under the eyes.

300

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream Gel: these are cream based products that are waterproof and extremely versatile. Can be used in many different ways as an over all eye colour, to prep your eyes for eyeshadow or can be used as a highlighter.

 

Loreal Color Infallible 6

L’OREAL La Couleur Infalliable Eyeshadows – These are eyeshadows have the best kind of pigment and shimmer. They are the ultimate drugstore pigments make your eyelids pop like nobody’s business.

MAC Techniques Class Review

Mac Techniques Class can be a very known workshop for everyone interested in beauty and make-up. Yet about 2 weeks ago I attended my first MAC Techniques class. I’m very interested in attending workshops and classes that can update my knowledge about makeup.

The class I attended was in the Mac store in Myer, Perth City.

IMG_1324

 

It was a 2 hour class which cost me A$120 (May be different in different countries). The cost of the class can be redeemed by buying products of the same amount.

The first hour in the class was demonstrations in which two senior artists taught and showed different tips and techniques of applications on two models (one each). The next hour is dedicated to one on one interaction between MAC artists and you to talk about your concerns, or product related questions etc. After which they can redeem your class cost with the products you purchase.

IMG_1325

Products I bought from the mac store. These products include the cost that got added on to the initial redemption as I ended up buying a little more.

MAC LIPSTICKS

  1. All Fired Up A$36
  2. Flat out fabulous A$36

MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation in NC 40 A$49

Mac Prolongwear Concealer in NC42 A$32

Mac Mineralised Skin Finish Natural in Medium Tan A$49

Mac Prep + Prime Highlighter in Apricot A$42

Mac Brush Cleanser A$20

IMG_1505

 

Overall It was a fun experience I would suggest it to anyone who wants to go for a update meeting on mac products and wants to buy products at the same time. I will not suggest this to you if you are looking for a first time make up class. Because this isn’t a proper makeup institute or academy class. However MAC does offer you a one on one session class if you’re just looking for something on yourself and not as a make up artist. Also, I wish there were more looks that could be shown other then that, it was a wonderful experience.

Morphe 350S (Shimmer) Palette Swatches

 

IMG_1564_Fotor

Everyone has been raving about the Morphe 350 eyeshadows after which morphe cosmetics came up with two palettes identical to the original one yet quite different as these two palettes (350M & 350S) are opposites in nature yet from the same family. The 350M contains all matte shades and the 350S has all shimmer. The palettes individually retail at US $22 and together at US $44.

Swatch and review of the first two rows –

IMG_1560_Fotor

The first two rows are the lighter shades and the most popping colours best for highlighting the lid and the brow bone.

Swatch and review of the middle row –

IMG_1561_Fotor

The middle row to my eye looks like a mixture of the darks, lights, reds, maroons. Its more like a showcase of bits of the palettes. It has gorgeous colours and my personal favourite is the fourth colour in the row. It has the perfect amount of glitter and sheen and it will add warmth to the eyes.

Swatch and review of the Last two rows –

IMG_1563_Fotor

The last two rows are mostly cool tones except for the two at the end. I love all of these colours, extremely gorgeous, very pigmented.

The complete palette swatches

Morphe Swatches with name_Fotor

Overall the palette as you can see has highly pigmented eyeshadows. These are just one sweep across with my finger and thats the pigment payoff. I have captured these in natural light as it would help you to see the true colours of the eyeshadows.

As mentioned in my previous post these pigments do have a bit of fall out. While cleansing these eyeshadows, I have noticed its very easy with a wet wipe or a cotton pad and a remover (if you prefer so), you don’t have to rub too much a soft glide takes off all the pigment without leaving any sparkles on your eyelids, which unfortunately does happen with many shimmer shadows.
