ULTIMATE HALLOWEEN GLAM | INSPIRED BY NIKKIE TUTORIALS

Not too long ago, beauty mogul and makeup YouTuber, NikkiTutorials released a Halloween glam makeup tutorial! I love Halloween, although in all honesty, my efforts for creating a variety of Halloween looks throughout the month of October are just none existent (as you can already tell) no matter how hard I try. With that being said, watching her tutorial on this look inspired me to experiment with a classic cut crease heightened by a dark twist in mind.


My interpretation of her look includes purple eyes instead of brown as I wanted a pop of colour in contrast with my skin tone.

I also added a very thick wing inside the cut crease as a way to give the illusion of a thicker lash line and more lashes as I don’t wear false lashes.

I didn’t have access to purple glitter at the time, so instead, I went for a dark purple/burgundy lipgloss to tie the look together.

PRODUCTS USED:

Foundation – Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation 440

Concealer – L’Oréal Total Cover Foundation 33 ‘Cappuccino’ & L.A. Girl Pro Concealer in ‘Cool Tan’

Contour/Blush – Nip+Fab Contour Palette in DARK

Purple Eyeshadows Used –

Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette & Stila Eyeshadow in Compact ‘Dahlia’

To Create the Cut Crease –

Makeup Revolution Concealer ’13’

Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette (shimmery ivory shade)

Mascara – Technic Lengthening Mascara

Lipstick – NYX High Voltage Lipstick in ‘Feline’

Lipgloss – Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lipgloss in ‘merlot’

I think this look is great for anyone who doesn’t feel like doing too much for Halloween, but would like to look Halloween presentable nonetheless. For parties, this could easily be a great base for a rendition of a vampire, Chucky’s wife, Cruella de Vil, Ursula and just about any other Disney villain really lol.

I hope this mini post gave you (if not Halloween) some fall/winter makeup inspo! Let me know what kind of makeup you’ll be rocking this Halloween in the comment section below!

MAKEUP MOOD: 1940s Vibes

This makeup mood is about harnessing the delicacy of the 1940s makeup style. Fresh, clean and defined using thin strokes of black eyeliner to give the illusion of fuller lashes with simplified skin to show of the iridescence of the clear like shimmery eyeshadow, pulled together with light brows and a statement brown-nude lip.

The cohesive, monochromatic theme in this look is not only perfect for for the autumn months but is suitable for any time of the year as this can be a great starting canvas for reds, pinks, orange hues etc.

I kept the brows lightweight and feathery whilst leaving the eyes faintly shaped with a dark brown eyeshadow applied higher than usual on the natural fold of my eyelids.

THE LIPSTICK:

I think this lipstick is a true brown, therefore it carries little to no dimension at all, requiring a darker lip liner to actually give opaqueness on the lips. Other than that, this can be a lovely essential in anyone’s makeup kit who loves to substitute lipsticks for blusher, eyeshadow or even eyeliner/eye bases.

PRODUCTS USED:

FOUNDATION – Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r in 440

CONCEALER – Elizabeth Arden Foundation & Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r in 440

POWDER – KIKO GreenMe Loose Bronzer

BRONZER – NIP+FAB Contour Palette [brown shade] & [Orange shade]

HIGHLIGHTER – E.L.F. in ‘Blush Gems’

EYESHADOW (Shimmer) – Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette [pale, off-white shimmery shade]

EYESHADOW (shading) – Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour refill in ‘Carob’

MASCARA – Technic Lengthening Mascara

LIPSTICK – MAC X Patricia Bright Lipstick ‘@ThePatriciaBright’

Hope this makeup look gives you some inspiration for this fall!

MAKEUP MOOD: SHOCK WAVE

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

This look is quite an advanced glam as I wanted to experiment with graphic eyeliner in combination with a statement lip also. A very vibrant, nod to the ’80s wearable look that I think will be perfect for any upcoming festive events this fall/winter or just to try out and have fun with creating.

I gave the base a more glass finish with a higher coverage foundation mixed in with an illuminating foundation. In contrast, I used a mixture of a matte red and matte pink liquid lipsticks to create a cherry-pink based hue on the lips and made the eyes more defined and diffused with a shimmery champagne/gold eyeshadow and black eyeliner (blended in with a black/brown eyeshadow) without losing the cat eye shape I wanted. Once I had my desired shape, I took the time to extend and carve out the liner as much as possible to break up the eyeshadows a bit and stand out more.

Inspired by Old Hollywood makeup artist, Whitey Snyder‘s eyelash shadow trick he was known to use on Hollywood Icon, Marilyn Monroe, you may also notice that I drew a line right underneath my eyeliner outwards to create a more 3D effect with my lashes (this is very optional). It was my first time trying out the infamous eyelash line trick but I think it worked out pretty well for this look. I’d love to know what you think of it in the comment section below…

MAKEUP LOOK: CLEAN GLAM

Hello, Everyone! I hope you’re all well and enjoying your morning, day or evening wherever you are reading this today!

This post is yet again, another makeup edit, but more glam for the Autumn/Winter season that is upon us. With so many incredible interpretations of glam makeup available for inspo, it can sometimes get a little overwhelming when the occasion actually rises to wear a suitable glam look for an event. I simply called this makeup Clean Glam because, to me, it strikes the right balance between glamour and simplicity, updated yet timeless and flawless whilst also flattering.

So whether you’re going to a party, dinner event or even for no occasion at all and just want to look glam without looking too much out of your natural self. This is the perfect all around, special occasion makeup that can be easily adapted and adjusted to your own personal taste.

As you can see, the main focus is on the eyes. It may look plain, but in pictures, this can certainly elevate your entire makeup look based on the placement of the shimmer on the lids (centre to inner corner), I also applied an off-white eyeliner in the rim of my eyes to brighten the look.

The skin is neutral and glowy while the lips tie the makeup together with a nude lipstick and gloss on top.

PRODUCT DETAILS:

FOUNDATION – FENTY BEAUTY Pro Filt’r Foundation in ‘440’

CONCEALER – Makeup Revolution Concealer in ’13’

POWDER – KIKO GreenMe Bronzing Loose Powder in ‘Raw Sienna’

MAKEUP LOOK: “Pretty in Pink”

Happy September to you all! For some reason, I’ve fallen back in love with pink hues lately. Growing up, I rarely liked to admit that my favourite colour (at the time) was pink, however, the majority of my detailed decorations all over my bedroom, throughout my scrapbooks, perfumes and handbags all happened to be pink *pretends to be shocked*. But on a more serious note, I’ve always considered pink to be an instant mood changer for me. Whether I’d notice the colour or not, pink had consistently been my go-to mood-brightener throughout my early teens. From my paintings to colourings, magazine cut-outs for colour-moods and now – makeup.

So even though, here in England, were experiencing yet again the infamous mood swings of September weather; too cold in the morning, too hot in the afternoon. I thought why not play with some of my favourite mood-brightening pink eyeshadows and remind myself to watch Pretty in Pink again.

The main concept of this look is very simple and easy, just soft and low effort. I purposefully wanted this to be quick to do, with a fresh and awake look in mind yet using high saturated pinks in contrast. Low effort, high impact.

On the eyes, you’ll notice that the pink eyeshadow carries some dimension and weight without looking heavy. The centre points along with the inner corners of my eyes are highlighted with the brightest version of the same eyeshadow, using light, glittery shimmers mixed in with the original shade I used all over the lids. This is known as a halo eye.

I’m not sure if you can tell, but I actually applied orange eyeshadows/pigments as a blusher. I also blended this into the socket line of my eyes to give the pink eyeshadow a place to look more seamless. These two shades work wonderfully together and makes the overall look seem more put together and finished as opposed to just using a pink without any complimentary shade to go with it (even though that in itself is a look).

Skin is fresh and clean looking using minimal foundation and heavy blending as I wanted a flawless face but with only my eyes and lips on show. My best tip for trying out bright colours on eyes and lips would be to try lighter brows as it’ll allow you face more of a clean canvas to work on.

PRODUCTS USED:

SKIN:

FOUNDATION – Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r in 440

CONCEALER – Makeup Revolution Full Cover 13

POWDR – RCMA no Color Powder “Translucent”

BRONZER/BLUSH – Orange Blush from NIP+FAB Contour Palette in “DARK” + A.B.H. Contour Refill in “L’Orange”

EYES:

BROWS – Light Brown Brow Gel

EYESHADOW [BASE] – A thin layer of Irum Cosmetics’ ‘Splash of Beauty’ Liquid Lipstick in “LUSH”

EYESHADOW – Mary Kay Blusher in “CHERRY BLOSSOM”, U.D. Full Spectrum Palette “GOSSIP”, A.B.H. Modern Renaissance Palette “LOVE LETTER”

I used a mixture of shadows from the pinks in the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette to the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette as my all over lid shade (in light layers).

EYESHADOW [HALO EFFECT] – U.D. Full Spectrum Palette “PARANOIA” + Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette “Kitty Glitter”

MASCARA – Technic

EYELINER – PoundWorld

I only used mascara and liner on the outer part of my eyes and lash line. I even went as far as to adding a skin tone eyeliner to tight line the top inner third of my lash line to act as if nothing was really there.

LIPS:

Irum Cosmetics ‘Splash Of Beauty’ Liquid Lipstick in “LUSH”

Whether you’re an undercover lover of pink or not, I hope this post gives you a little inspo for this September 🙂

MAKEUP LOOK: TURQUOISE BLISS

PRODUCT DETAILS:

BASE: L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation “Cappucino” (I prefer to mix this foundation in with a liquid illuminator to sheer the coverage down just a bit.)

CONCEALER: The same foundation mixed in with a lighter one from Elizabeth Arden, lightly applied to the centre points of the face including right underneath my eyes.

POWDER: RCMA No Color Powder “Translucent”

BLUSH: NIP&FAB Contour Palette “DARK” – Orange Shade

BRONZER: NIP&FAB Contour Palette “DARK” (to add contrast)

EYESHADOW: by Cargo Cosmetics – Unfortunately, this eyeshadow came from their California Throwback collection which is now discontinued. This type of turquoise (green with blue reflects) colour is a very universal and versatile shade, I feel. You can find this in a lot of other palettes (and singles) that are currently available on most online beauty department stores or at your local drugstore. It may also be worth checking your makeup archives for an eyeshadow like this.

MASCARA: PoundWorld – So I wanted to add just a touch of Cher vibes to this look. You can certainly go crazy with this step as I think it would work with this eyeshadow very well and really make the eyes pop (as if they don’t already) – but I was just scared 🤓

LINER: PoundWorld (Only to fill in the gaps on my lashline. I wanted my lashes to appear thicker and fuller yet clean whilst making sure that there was no eyeliner in sight.)

LIPS: If you’ve read any other of my makeup posts, you’d know that my go-to nude lip combo would be a brown lip liner, pink/nude lipstick with a touch of concealer dabbed on the centre of my lips. However, I wanted something slightly different and more exotic so I replaced my normal concealer with an orange corrector/concealer to use as my lip pigment, topped off with a lipgloss and that became the look!

Brown Lipliner: MUA Brown Brow Pencil “DARK”

Nude/Pink Lipstick: Primark

Orange Corrector/Concealer: L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealer

I know this look is pretty, um, colourful but I’ve recently been obsessing over this turquoise shimmery hue as a focal point in a makeup look with a summery influence in mind. And I’m loving it!

I would love to read your thoughts on this look in the comments below and/or maybe share a colour that you’ve recently been loving as your eyeshadows this summer!

Hope this brightening makeup look gives you a little inspo towards the late summer ^-^

MY SUMMER RED LIP ROUTINE

I don’t really wear red lipsticks often (just based on personal preference). But whenever I do, it always becomes a rather strategic process for me. I made a post some time ago about my red lip routine, mentioning the time it took for me to become more comfortable and confident enough to wear red lips out when I felt like it. Now I know exactly which products to reach for and can easily figure out how to achieve the right gradient and finish more suited towards my lips, resulting into rocking a red lip without hesitation.

In this post, i’ll be introducing a not-so-new but new-to-my-blog technique on how I wear a red lip in the summer-time. From which foundation I use on that day to the application process I always have in mind when I want to achieve that near-perfect pout. This is my current Red Lip Routine (in the summer).

When I think of summery red lipsticks, I often think of a defined, saturated red colour with an orange undertone or base/hue. I use to actually stay away from orange-toned reds, however, I’ve now finally found a way to have the best of both worlds without looking out of place.

First of all, the lipstick itself is very important to get right (I’ve already done an article about this on my Top 5 Reds You Need to Try Out This Summer). Once you have that sorted out, you want to pick out either an orange colour corrector, orange cream blush, orange lip-tint or even, better yet, an orange based lip liner or lipstick. So a red lipstick and an orange based lip pigment of your choice will be the two main products you’ll be working with.

The two products that I’ve chosen:

Red Lipstick: Coloured Raine Liquid Lipstick in Cherry Blossom

Orange Based Lip pigment: Kiko Lipliner in “514” Poppy Red

Okay so, not much has changed with my red lip choice, *shrugs* but what can I say? When you know your lipstick, you know your lipstick ^-^.

This liquid lip paint, in particular, has a full coverage, which I like but I find it more suitable to wear alone during the winter seasons as opposed to in the summer (even though it can be worn alone, all year round) – which is why I enjoy this combo because the Kiko lip liner is the complete opposite in undertone, it’s very orange-based and brightening – perfect for the summer.

So now I’ve explained the tools needed, here’s my best explanation of how I use them together:

Using a very light hand, I first, faintly line the perimeter of my lips with a black eye/lip pencil – yes – a black eye/lip pencil on my prepped and primed lips. This isn’t to overline my lips, however, It’s just so I can follow a sharp line to create a more defined look. If applied correctly, ideally, you shouldn’t even see the black guideline so clearly. This is just to outline the shape of your lips if they’re not as defined. (You can obviously replace the black with a red toned lipliner for this step, completely optional and up to you.)

Next, onto the lipstick. I basically fill in the cool-toned, pink-based red liquid lip paint onto my lips right on top of the faint line that I had made prior. I then work my way nearer to the centre of my lips without covering the middle section of my top and bottom lip, so there’s quite a significant gap happening.

Here comes the pencil! Kiko’s 514, a warm-toned, orange-based red. This lip pencil camouflages seamlessly and blends in quite well, which is what you’d want when merging this method with any other red lipstick.

So this time, I start at the centre of my lips and pretty much fill in the gaps I missed out on purpose. Once the centre of my lips has now been filled in, I then faintly go over the rest of my lips to properly blend out the two lippies together.

If you’re using a liquid-to-dry lipstick (like me), I’d advise you to always have a mini vaseline tin on hand. This can be applied and blotted which will allow your lips to be more soft, supple and hydrated.

A few check-ups with a clean, flat eyeshadow brush and a skin-toned concealer to really achieve that crisp finish (more details about this on my How to Pull Off Any Lip Colour article) And we’re done!

PRODUCTS USED:

FOUNDATION – Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r in “440”

I’d suggest using a light-weight foundation that offers a buildable coverage. You want the skin to look clean and even rather than too artificial looking. The best foundations I’d recommend for this finish would be L’Oréal‘s True Match Foundation and/or the one I used in this edit from Fenty Beauty.

CONCEALER – Fenty Beauty Match Stix in “Caramel”

POWDER – RCMA No Color Powder in Translucent (has no flashback!)

BRONZER – Sleek Bronze Block  in “Dark”

EYESHADOW – Any silver-toned shimmery/metallic eyeshadow, I used one from the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette

EYELINER – PoundWorld (none-irritating in black)

MASCARA – PoundWorld

BLUSHER – The orange shade from the NIP&FAB Contour Palette in “DARK” (for my recent review of this palette, click here)

LIPLINER(S) – Black Eyeliner & Kiko Lipliner in “514” Poppy Red or Kiko’s Lip Liner in 513 (more orange)

LIPSTICK – Coloured Raine Liquid Lip Paint in “Cherry Blossom”

I hope this edit gives you a little more insight into how I like to perfect and adapt my red lipsticks to the summer season. As someone who’s once never thought of wearing red lipsticks, ever, I hope this gives anyone else who may have felt the same way a little inspo to play with reds from time-to-time.

MAKEUP LOOK: Bold Eyeshadow Inspired by the ’60s

I’ve recently been noticing this new re-birth of 60’s style makeup. Although it had already made its influence through many other modernised renditions of the 60’s look over the decades, this year has really become an interesting time for different makeup artists and non-makeup artists to experiment with the simplicity of single, bold eyeshadows. Paired with, of course, graphic liner.

For this look, I not only took some inspiration from the 60’s but added in a little bit of 50’s with the eyeliner. I used just one eyeshadow from my all-time favourite colour palette, Urban Decay Full Spectrum using their shade, “Bump” a matte white shadow. I did have to re-apply this to build intensity, though it wasn’t an issue.

Products used-

Foundation: Loreal Paris TrueMatch in 8N “Cappucino”

Concealer: Select Cover Up Concealer by MAC

Bronze/Contour: Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in “Chestnut” / “Esspreso”

Powder: RCMA No Color Powder & Loreal Paris Compact Powder

Lips: any nude lipstick w/ a dark liner & a dab of concealed (I used one from LA Girl) does the job!

Eyeliner: Poundworld [still my fave]

Mascara: ELF Lengthening

HOW TO APPLY [White Eyeshadow]:

I primed my eyelids with a concealer first. I wanted to make sure that I had an even base on my lids so I also set them with a light dusting of powder that had coverage. Next, came the fun part! Using a soft, flat eyeshadow brush – I pat-and-wiggled the pigment onto the middle of my eyelids (avoiding the outer section), evenly distributing the shadow down to the inner corners of my eyes. I then finished my shape by blending the shadow underneath the inner tear duct area of my eyes for a lifted effect.

I went over this a couple more times using the same technique with a fluffier brush to buff out the edges and after liner, I was done.

One thing I loved about this process was that it was very quick to do. Took me about 3-5 minutes to complete the shadow and move straight to eyeliner. If only all of my looks took this long… *sigh*

I significantly left the outer lids buffed out and bare to act as a natural crease shade without using eyeshadow. I feel like using a transition shade with too much of an orange undertone in it can weaken the look. The goal is for the eyeshadow to be as bold as possible in this case.

If you’re interested in experimenting with white eyeshadows, here, I’ve accumulated and linked five different alternatives that you could consider. Please note that some of these pigments have a pearly finish as opposed to matte due to lack of availability with this particular shade but nonetheless, these are my top five recommendations.

Maybelline Eyestudio 24 Hour Color Tattoo Gel-Cream Eyeshadow, 45 Infinite White (Gel Formula)

Price £7.06

I’d recommend using a product like this as a base first and then applying your eyeshadow on top for a more opaque finish.


Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow No.90 Blanc Diaphane (satin finish)

Price (on sale): £4.99


Image result for makeup geek ice queen

Ice Queen 1.8g Eyeshadow Pan by Makeup Geek

Price: £4.95


Pearl/White Ivory Eyeshadow in Oyster by MUA Cosmetics (pearl/satin finish)

Price: £3.45


Matte, Long Lasting Colourful Eyeshadow Eye Shadow in (#1) by LHWY (matte finish)

Price: £1.88

I really wish more makeup brands would expand with more colourful and pigmented mattes, kind of like SugarPill’s singles which do also come in palettes, I believe. For me, wearing white eyeshadow alone never came to mind until I actually saw it in this palette. Personally, I love this look! And I would actually wear this look again.

Please do let me know in the comments what you think and if wearing just one bold shadow would be a look you’d wear, as I’d love to know!

MAKEUP LOOK: TWO-TONE EYESHADOW

Greetings, everyone! I hope you’re all well today. **Sighs, followed by face palm** I know I have not been the most consistent with content since before my birthday back in May (btw makeup deets on the yellow look I wore will be uploaded soon). But this time, I promise I’m back on track and here to stay.

Okay – so for this edit, I really wanted to showcase a makeup look that I’ve never really done on my blog before (that’s the goal, Stacy ^-^), which is a two-tone eyeshadow look! Basically two different coloured eyeshadows on each eye. The inspiration drew from a makeup tutorial I watched about a year ago on the amazing makeup artist, JKissa (on YouTube). So this is my rendition of a two-toned eye-look!

I knew I wanted something diffused, with a pale touch of the same colour on the lids, tied together with a graphic wing in the exact same colour (sort of). As for my colour choices, I wasn’t actually sure about which duos to choose from. So I then ended up going for blue and green eyeshadows, complimented with lighter brows, bronzed up skin and glossy lips. Creating this was quite the experiment, but definitely worth the attempt.

I think one of the trickiest parts of creating this look was when I was mapping out the same shapes using different coloured eyeshadows on each eye. Although it took me quite a bit of time, the process was still so much fun and new to me!

I remember whilst I was curating the shadows I wanted for this look, I felt somewhat of a nostalgic wave come over me from the times I’d spend as a child. Searching and testing out different watercolour paints for hours on end – oh the joy. Not much has changed since then. I now have a variety of 30 different powdery swatches on both of my arms in the same colour family, hunting for as many green and blue eyeshadow combos that I can find in my collection.

But this step was actually crucial, only because you want to work with textures that won’t give you a hard time blending, just so you know which shadows work best for you.

PRODUCTS USED:

EYESHADOWS-

Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette

A couple of no-named, [discontinued] single shadows that I barely used, but were still useful.

FOUNDATION- Fenty Beauty Pro Filtr’ in 440

CONCEALER- Fenty Beauty Match Stick in Caramel (under the eyes)

POWDER/BRONZER/BLUSH- Nip & Fab Contour Kit in Dark (such a favourite!)

HIGHLIGHT- Nip & Fab Highlighter in Deep

EYELINER- From Poundland

MASCARA- Primark

LIP GLOSS- any nude/transparent gloss! Primark has great ones, the one I used is by NYC in Pink Sand, however, its unfortunately discontinued.

BROWS: Light brown brow gel by TECHNIC

What I will say is that the two-tone eyeshadow method definitely opened up my eyes to get creative and put together not only different moods with more colour but even different textures, telling the same story on the eyes.

I may be getting ahead of myself, lol, but I’d love to see more renditions of this in the near future! I can totally see this being done in more makeup edits, magazine editorials and in pretty much in general. Just something different…

I’d love to know what you all think of the ‘two-toned’ eye-look in the comments below! Would you try out this look? Have you already done this look? I’m curious, lol.

IGTV: For those of you who are on Instagram, I’ve started uploading full-length makeup tutorials on IGTV (if you click on my Instagram profile, you’ll find my video in the top left corner). You can also follow me and let me know what you think of these, or even suggest any other ideas on what looks you think I could film for you. My Instagram is stacyjang_

MAKEUP LOOK: Bronzy, Rosy Mood.

I essentially wanted to go for a bronzy look with matte brown hues, however, I ended up with a much rosier result merging with red and copper tones. I found that this look was so easy to create, only taking me up to 30 minutes to finish (not bad ^-^), it certainly gives me some nostalgic vibes of the late 90’s to the early 2000’s – just a little modernised by adding thicker brows and liner to enhance the eyes pretty much. I think this look is perfect for summer!

What do you think?

Products used:

Foundation- Fenty Beauty Foundation in 440

Concealer- Match Stick in Caramel

Powder/contour/blush- Nip+Fab Contour Palette in DARK

Eyes- Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette (copper shade) + Sunset from Nip+Fab Contour Palette in DARK

Mascara- Primark

Liner- Poundland Beauty (the only one I’ve found that doesn’t irritate my eyes lol)

Glow- Fenty Beauty Match Stick in Rum + TooFaced Cat Eyes Palette eyeshadow in Tiger’s Eye

Lips- KlaraCosmetics in 14 (as a liner) + Match Stick in Rum, any shimmery glossy lip will do (mine is discontinued).
