Inspired by Fenty Beauty’s ‘uncensored’ Stunna Lip Paint (worn in this edit) I wanted to push myself a little further out of my comfort zone and add some clashing yet complimenting shadows for my eyes, specifically for the liner. I achieved this by thinly tight-lining the top lash line of my eyes with black eyeliner, gradually blended in with black eyeshadow to intensify and applied purple eyeshadow to set with.

I thought that a touch of purple would really add to the 80’s glam nod that slowly started to show through in contrast to the softness of the pink shadow I had initially.

Kept the skin simple with not too much foundation applied to give a very fresh approach and mixed in my powder bronzer and blush for a more believable flush on the tops of my cheekbones.

I Know this is quite a romantic, Valentine’s Day looking makeup look. But, I hope you all got a bit of an up-to-date glam inspo for Valentine’s Day 2019!

I’m currently loving this idea of eyeshadows as the liner. And although I know this is not so new, I feel like this just really gives a modern dynamic of softness yet sleekness to the eyes. Not to mention it takes a significantly shorter amount of time to apply than eyeliner.

I have gotten a few questions on how to achieve a soft liner without the eyeshadow looking grey in the undertone. So, if any of you would like for me to film a dedicated tutorial on that – do let me know in the comments below! Xx

This look is by far one of the most complicated eye-looks I’ve ever created and I’m not even exaggerating lol. It was inspired by a look I saw on a model photographed around the 60’s in Italy. Unfortunately, I do not know the credits to the photo – but one thing I do know is that the look was fierce and I couldn’t wait to recreate it!

The Italian’s makeup look in the 60’s/70’s was very much more experimental with their eyeliner I’d say. From the well known feline smokey eye only a few like Sophia Loren could pull off as an everyday look, to even the simplest cat eye with natural skin, popularised by not only their old Hollywood muses but throughout the imagery of some iconic fashion houses we know today such as Dolce & Gabbana.

Anyways, this is definitely less of a pictorial and more of a visual edit of the finished look. And although, in my opinion, this isn’t the most suited look for me, it sure did instantly brighten my aura and put me in such a mood to act as if I was born in the 70’s *shrugs, sighs and visualises*…

I did my absolute best to keep the skin natural whilst flawless, rouged up the cheeks with an orange blusher and added a transparent glow using one of my most favourite makeup tricks, clear lip balm as a highlighter or to put it shortly – Vaseline.

Because the eyes here are so… defined, I carried out the look by making sure the skin had a little more of a saturated glow and even dabbed on the excess of the orange blush on the centre of my lips before finishing with a thin layer of lip balm.

As you’ll be able to notice, the brows are none existent – this was achieved with a brushing of light brown brow gel and a lighter coloured concealer cleaned underneath them to leave a rather faint shape to them. I just loved the way the brows looked in this way! It’s like when you have light brows, you’re almost least resistant to trying out dramatic looks such as this one. If you don’t have access to a light brow gel, the best way to getting the closest match to a bleached brow look is by using your foundation. The trick is to not use too much of it as you apply, a little goes a long way but the end result is just as amazing.

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.

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!

I’ve noticed that around this time of year, that I begin to regularly receive questions as to how I achieve a more flawless foundation look without looking too cakey and just all-around even in tone with my makeup. Now, of course, liquid foundation and concealer play a huge part in my Autumn/Winter makeup routine but not as much as powder foundation does, as this product/step is what really makes a difference in creating that flawless face during the colder months.

I will be uploading a film on how I use powder foundations for on-the-go multitasking purposes very soon, but for now, I’ve listed down 10 different ways to use powder foundation as I consider this to always be essential in anyone and everyone’s makeup bag.

  1. As foundation (I know, but I felt like I had to mention this at least lol)
  2. To lightly set your liquid/cream foundation or concealer
  3. To cover spots/blemishes and/or hyperpigmentation
  4. To use as a powdered eye-primer
  5. To touch up makeup on the go
  6. To lighten up the colour of your brows
  7. To full proof and mattify a nude lip
  8. To use as a transition shade for eye-looks
  9. To use as a matte bronzer (if you pick up a darker shade)
  10. To sharpen a bold lipstick by cleaning up the edges
  • 1. MUA PRO Base Full Cover Matte Powder

    Price: £2.50

    Coverage: Medium to High

    Shades: 9

    2. KIKO GreenMe Bronzer Loose Powder

    Price: [SALE] £3.80 Retail Price: £12.00

    Coverage: Light to Medium (buildable)

    Shades: 2

    The reason why I love this bronzer as a powder foundation is because it actually neutralises any different undertones in my foundation to suit my skin. It has some sort of a blurring effect but it’s not shiny, nor is it matte. Kind of like a good dupe for Laura Mercier’s new setting powder but with little to no shimmers in this powder. I’ve been using it for about a month now and it has become one of my best loose face setting powders without being too heavy on the skin.

    Unfortunately, this powder comes in two shades as they are bronzers. However, KIKO sells an actual powder foundation called the Skin Tone Powder Foundation (£13.90) which also comes in 18 different shades.

    3. L’Oréal True Match Super Blendable Powder

    Price: £6.99

    Coverage: Light to Medium (buildable)

    Shades: 10

    This powder is one of my favourites compared to some high-end PFs. What I really like about this one is that it has light to medium coverage, making it very buildable but with a finely milled texture, encouraging me to use a light hand. Not to mention, this compact comes with a very good mirror, easy to travel with and throw in your handbag. If you have normal to dry skin, I’d recommend using a very fluffy face brush to set your makeup with this powder in order to avoid any dry patches. If you happen to struggle with drying makeup in general, try using rose water-based setting sprays after you’ve applied your makeup.

    4. Milani Mineral Compact, High Coverage Powder

    Price: £11.00

    Coverage: High

    Shades Available: 3

    For those that prefer a higher coverage, I’d recommend trying Milani’s Mineral Compact range (linked above). The undertones of these powders would also make a gorgeous matte bronzer and a face-perimeter setting powder. This also comes with a mirror, is travel-friendly and will come in handy if you have combination to oily skin.

    5. NOTE Cosmetics Silk Luminous Compact Powder

    Price: £13.90

    Coverage: Light to Medium (natural finish)

    Shades Available: 17

    Hope this post gives you some new access into some high-Street brands that provide powder foundations 🙂

    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.

    EYESHADOW (BLENDING SHADE) – Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Refill in ‘L’ORANGE’

    EYESHADOW (SHIMMER) – Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette in ‘ICED’ & Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette  ‘KITTY GLITTER’, ‘TIGERS EYE’.

    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 ^-^

    Thank you all so much for stopping by The Belper!

    Lots of love,


    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.



    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).

    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!




    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


    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


    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.
