Who says you cant wear yellow? 

Hello ny lovelies so recently i was in kiko and i saw this bright yellow and i was just like i’ve got to have it its stunning! My mum said she didnt think it would suit me and it would look silly, so i decided to get it and prove her wrong and im so glad i did. 

This wont be everyones cup of tea as they say but hope you enjoy anyways.

First i started with my urban decay primer potion in eden then my bronzer as a transition colour. I blended tiki hut by makeup geek into my crease and half way across my lid. I darkened this with a dark orangy brown from my morphe 35W palette, then a cool toned brown colour on the outer corner of my eye. For the lid i took the shade 19 from kiko (the yellow), then a champagne high light in my inner corner also from kiko in the shade 16. To finish of i created a wing with my seventeen black eyeliner and tight lined my top and bottom lashes with a brown liner from maybelline in the shade matte occhi. After running tiki hut along my lower lash line i applied my lash sensational mascara and i was done. 

Thankyou for reading hope you enjoyed; oh and what would you like to see next a q&a or a challenge? 

Love abixx

 

Christmas party GRWM

​Hello my lovelies this is my christmas party look option 1, for those parties when glam is essential but you dont have much time. Im going to just skip straight into the tutorial hope you enjoy and MERRY CHRISTMAS, hope your tree is perfect and your lights dazzling that wasn’t meant to be an innuendo dont worry! 

AH i apologise for the very gross face and my pjs hope you enjoy anyways.

So first i started with the eyes and placed my naked skin concealer in fair all over my lids and set it as a base. I then put unexpected by makeup geek in my crease as my transition colour, on top of this i blended Nooner from the Naked 3 palette. for the main colour i put Makeup Geek’s Bitten in my crease and inner 3rd of my eye then smoked it out with a dark plum from my Morphe 35W palette keeping it concentrated in the outer crease. On the inner 3rd i placed a white reflective gold colour and put my gold glitter on top. 

Next i started doing my face i placed my natural collection green corrector on my spots which as you can see my face has decided on giving me loads of recently, lucky me right. Then i put my Morphe yellow corrector under my eyes. For foundation i used my Bareminerals original foundation and put this everywhere apart from underneath my eyes as its powder, then i use a smaller brush to cover blemishes with my foundation. Next i put my Naked skin concelear under my eyes on my nose and cupids bow then blend it out with my real techniques sponge. After setting this is i put on my Rimmel bronzer and then my Lancome blush. I attempted to slightly contour my nose which kind of failed but lets ignore that and move on to my highlight, so i tried a new makeup brand called Makeup Obsession called … and it is honestly stunning an the pigmentation is incredible! Anyways i placed it on my nose, cheek bones, tear duct brow bone and cupids bow. 

Next i did my brows like normal with my Anastasia dip brow in Dark brown and finished my eyes off with my lash sensational mascara. I also ran bitten along my lower lash line to tie the look together. My lips were very simple  just placed my Rimmel lip liner in shade 1 all over and left it at that.

Hope you enjoyed thankyou for reading love you all lots, have a lovely week.

Love you, abixx

Green halo smokey eye

Hello my lovelies, how are you all? Guess what… I HIT 700 FOLLOWERS i know it’s insane thankyou SO much for once i’m actually speechless you guys are amazing!! 

So this is a smalo (halo + smokey) eye thats not a thing im pretty sure but im just going to pretend it is. This look was inspired by the shadow venom from makeup geek, which is a beautiful shimmery dark green. As you all know im rubbish at smokey eyes but i attempted one for you i hope you all enjoy. Oh and have a lovely weekend i hope the weathers better than it is here in typical rainy, stormy England.

Im just going to go through how i created the eyeshadow look and skip the face because you’ve all read me do that a million times, then i will give you some tips on doing a smokey eye.

The look…

So first most importantly especially for when you’re going to be using dark colours, because panda eyes aren’t a cute look on humans to be honest, you should apply a base for this i used a morphe concealer from lid to brow bone then set it with a translucent powder. 

For the crease i applied peach smoothie by makeup geek on a big fluffy brush followed by a burnt orange from morphe 350 palette on top blending it quite high. To darken up the crease i added a dark brown also from my morphe 350 palette and focused that mainly on the outer v and the outer third of my crease. 

For the lid i took a black eyeshadow on a flat brush and applied that all over being careful not to go to high, then i buffed this out dragging it  into the crease to give the smokey effect. When that was as dark as i wanted i went over it with peach smoothie to blend the colours together and leave no harsh lines. 

For the halo part of the eye i took venom by makeup geek on a wet small flat brush to get more pigment, and put that on the lower center part of my lid, so it doesn’t mix giving me a shimmery crease which i dont want because im not about that life. 

Under my eye i put concealer cleaning up the edge of the eyeshadow and concealing dark circles. As always i set that with my lancome translucent pressed powder. Under my lash line i put peach smoothie followed by the black eyeshadow, blending it out on a small fluffy brush with the burnt orange to make it mirror my eye look. In the inner corner and brow bone i placed a white highlight from makeup revolution to make my eyes pop; add a few coats of mascara its finished.

Top 5 tips… 

  • When creating a smokey eye blend blend blend if you think you’ve finished you aren’t blend again, this will make the look appear so much nicer and put together. 
  • When using dark colour apply concealer after so you can wipe away any fallout, so you wont look like a panda.
  • Only apply the dark colour in the outer part of your crease and blend inwards creating a soft sexy effect.
  • Always apply a bit of the darker colour on you lower lash line to tie the look together and balance it all out. 
  • When using a green shimmer apply a black eyeshadow as a base because it makes it more vibrant.

Thankyou for reading hope you enjoyed it was something a bit different if you prefer this type of makeup please let me know. Have a lovely day thankyou again so so much for 700 means the world! 

Love you, Abi xx

Everyday makeup collab

Hey guys so this is my everyday makeup collab with the lovely @beautytriggers on instagram, go check out her channel its so amazing. She also has a blog called beautytriggers which is really funny so go show her some love please and tell her i sent you thank you guys!

So back to me i’m kidding i’m kidding, i’m not allowed to wear much makeup at school so i try to make my makeup a discreet as i can. You guys already know i’m a bit weird so this probably wont phase you but i like to theme my looks like if it’s winter ill wear a lazy/grundgy look, and in the summer i lean towards bronze and gold, but as it’s spring i thought of fresh and bright colours so i went for pinks and yellows. Snapchat-1861168633288117569

Starting off with my face base (loving the sound of that not going to lie) i prime my face with Nivea men post shave balm + hydrate. On top of that i used my  blemish ready powder foundation by Bareminerals, i swear by this foundation it makes my skin look wearable if that makes sense, but yeah it really is a life saver. I used to wear the original Bareminerals foundation which is just as good but the colour match isn’t as good so i wear it in the summer. I buff this all in then take a small concealer brush and buff some onto my spots.

Under my eyes i use my mac pro long wear concealer and bake it with baby powder. I lovee this hack it works so well and is so cheap! Also if anyone accidentally smells your face at least it’s going to smell nice ok that was a bit weird but yeah it’s amazing.

while this is baking i contour my cheeks and jaw to do this i use my seventeen thats brow kit, i use the powder by the way not the pencil or wax just because i think this is the perfect shade for my skin and is the best i’ve found. I have medium to dark by the way. I sometimes bronze my face but it wasn’t feeling it for my spring look so i just wore extra blush. For blush i use the Lancome blush in rose sable and just apply this to the apples of my cheek and where i would put bronzer on my cheeks. I now brush off the baby powder and apply the makeup revolution vivid baked highlighter in pink lights, i put this on the highest points of my face, most of it on my nose.

For my eyebrows i use Anastasia dip brow pomade in dark brow, i’ve just started using it so don’t judge if they’re are unfleeky it’s hard sorry. I use a Maybelline eye liner brush to apply them.

Next i do my eye makeup, for the base i put on my left over mac pro longwear concealer can i just say does a lot come out or is it just me?  I then use my naked 3 palette and put the shade liar on the outside and trick in the inner half. In the crease i put the same brow contour powder and blend blend blend. To highlight my brow bone and inner corner i use my white eyeshadow from body shop called dazzling sand. Then to finish it off i curl my lashes and put on my Maybelline lash sensational mascara on the top and bottom.
