MAKEUP LOOK: GREEN GLAM!

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing well!

Today’s blog post is a makeup look which I must say, is a little experimental ^-^. For some reason, I’ve become obsessed with the colour green lately. Not a particular shade of green, anything green really (lol). It’s a colour I’ve been incorporating in makeup looks, my lifestyle and just deco overall – only subtly.

I felt like just adding small touches of green palettes here and there could not only make outfits, makeup looks and deco pop but also add some sort of refreshing texture for this spring. I’m here for working with bright colours/tones, and for this look, I’m going all out with green!

Oh! I almost forgot to mention that for the past few weeks I’ve also been trying out bleached brows… Not actually bleached brows, but lighter brows filled in with light brown eyeshadows – combed out with a thin layer of my foundation or light brow gels. A lot of steps, yes, but I kind of like them – especially for dramatic looks!

 

PRODUCTS USED

SKIN:

A thin layer of foundation – Fenty Beauty Foundation in 440

Concealer – Fashion Fair (Full Coverage Soufflé Foundation) in Pure Brown

To brighten/clean up – Elizabeth Arden Foundation in Ivory 01 (with a very light hand)

Contour/bronze – Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Chestnut (hence I look quite bronzed lol)

Highlighter – Any Cream Highlighter perfectly does the job, mine is unfortunately discontinued. I like to apply mine with a fluffy blush brush for a diffused look.

Powder – Nip + Fab Contour Palette

The best powder for setting brightened areas! – L’Oréal True Match Powder

EYES:

1. Any dark brown eyeshadow well blended into the socket line of the eye and up into the crease – I used Too Faced’s “Panther” eyeshadow from their Cat Eyes Edition Palette.

2. I actually used tape to align the sharpness of the eyeshadow + liner duo look. If you do consider this step, (which is not required) I’d advise only to put a small piece of tape on the back of your hand – gently remove it and repeat it twice again before using it as an eyeliner guide.

(Using tape enables you to achieve a sharp finish with your liner or eyeshadow. I only like to use this method for dramatic looks only.)

Green Eyeshadow

Palette – Urban Decay’s Full Spectrum Palette

3. I buffed in Hatter all over the lids to lay the main base colour down.

4. I then blended in Hundred + a dark brown eyeshadow on the outer corners of my eyes to also act as a base for the liner I was about to apply.

5. Next, came in Mean (a gorgeous shade 😩) applied with a pencil brush on the inner third of my eyes and bottom lash line. This step really brought out the contrast in my eyes!

6. The Liner (from Poundland) was focused on the outer corners of my eyes rather than covering up all the eyeshadow on the lids.

7. Mascara – Poundland

LIPS:

Since the eyes are bold, I really wanted to pale out the lips whilst still, keep them slightly defined.

Lipstick – Primark (not sure of which name, but it’s a pale/peachy pink – more on the nude side though.

+ lip balm for a slight sheen

Any eye colour will go beautifully well with these particular green eyeshadows. Bright, pigmented green eyeshadows also work incredibly well against dark brown eyes.

Brown Tones ‘90s Supermodel Inspired Makeup Look

Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope you’re all doing well!

For this blog post, I wanted to focus on a particular makeup theme that still inspires my makeup looks to this day. The ’90s Supermodel Look, brought to you by ‘The Trinity’ of supermodels Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington respectively. The ’90s supermodel era embodied the sculpted, magnificence and sultriness in Makeup. All matte, all defined and all bronzed – brown tones were all the rage when it came to really enhancing your inner cat-eyed bombshell, a timeless look that soon paved the way for a lot of the shapes/styles we see in makeup today, (besides drag in the ’90s of course ♥️).

In my rendition of the classic style, I focused on the contour of the skin and the eyes (as blended in as I could get it), the liner and the sort of, one tone look to the skin without looking too flat in the face with my foundation. I also combed through my brows with a lighter brown shade to lighten them a little for a more dated effect (optional) but I liked how it turned out. This method can really change the way your entire face looks (be warned, lol) but it was so much fun! ^-^

PRODUCTS USED:

EYES

Brows-

A black pencil (used to lightly feather in my brows)

TooFaced Eyeshadow In Panther to fill in more sparse areas

L’Oréal True Match Foundation to lighten them

Used the Nip+Fab Contour Palette in Dark as eyeshadows to enhance, define and contour the eyes. Shaded in a little higher than my natural crease definition.

I then went in with “Tempera” from the Modern Renaissance Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette to lift the shadow on the middle of the lids to the inner corners of the eyes.

Liner-

This part was pretty straightforward considering I did most of the work using different tones of brown eyeshadow. This step definitely defined the eyes since it was the only black that I used on the eyes (+mascara).

Poundland

Mascara-

My current fave: Poundland (purple packaging)

SKIN

Nip+Fab Illuminator in “Dark Golden”

Foundation- Fenty Beauty Foundation in 440

Concealer/Highlight- Fenty Beauty Foundation in 440 mixed in with Elizabeth Arden Creme Foundation in Ivory 01 (a tiny bit)

Powders-

RCMA No Colour Powder (Still a fave and I absolutely love the blurring effect this gives, however, if you’re looking for a powder that will keep you matte all day… this isn’t the one ^-^)

Nip+Fab Contour Palette “Dark” (I legit used all the 6 shades including this bright orange as a blush!)

Added blusher-

Sleek Blush Palette in “Sugar”

LIPS

You all may have seen me talk about this method here and there, but I actually used a brown pencil from Elizabeth Arden, applied a nude lipstick from Primark and topped it off with my concealer of choice to really achieve that pouty, skin-toned nude result.

I hope this post gives you a little inspo for your looks this Spring-Summer, I’m currently loving this creative expansion that nostalgic images are bringing in a lot of our modern looks!

Is this a look that you’d wear, will wear or have already have worn? Let me know in the comments as I’d love to know!
