No Make Up Make Up | Video Tutorial


Ages ago I did a blogpost on the 'No make up make up ' look . Its a perfect look if you don't want to look like your make up but want to look fresh faced & ready for the day ahead . Video is differently my favourite way of learning so I decided to put together a video tutorial with an updated 'No Make up Make Up Video ' .

Cream products have a more skin like finish & work best . As you can see in this video I used a peachy pink cream blush on my cheeks & lips and a cream highlighter . They blend in seamlessly and cant be seen sitting above the skin .

First off on the eyes I applied Mac Paint Pot to remove any discolouration (veins , redness etc ) . To brighten the eye area & to make my eyes look more awake , I applied a white eyeliner in my waterline, centre of my eyelids & under my eyebrows . I then also applied mascara and lightly applied a thin line of dark brown eyeliner to give the illusion of slightly thicker lashes .

I made sure there was zero make up on my skin by using a cleanser and a cotton pad . I then applied the moisturiser & the beauty elixir mist which really helped revive my skin .

Bargain Beauty Buy | Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer


Another Bargain Beauty Buy blogpost . Today it about one of my all time favourite concealers that's an absolute steal. Its the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer from Boots . I use the colour 'Fair Shade 1' which is nice & light in colour so it acts as an under eye highlight/concealer . It was very popular beauty blogger product a few years ago but since hasn't been as popular with so many other concealers coming out . But its one that will always have a place in my kit .






                                                    

Its full coverage & long lasting . It can crease very slightly if you over apply it under your eye area due to the slightly thick consistency . That's only a minor flaw that just requires applying a thinner layer under your eye area instead of applying a thick layer . The product retails at €5.79 in Boots Store nationwide and comes in 4 shades (the shade in the pictures above is 'Cool Medium Shade 2' )  .

Great at covering dark undereye circles & spots (if I was applying it on a spot I would apply the product to the back of my hand then get another brush to apply it with , otherwise you are contaminating the wand that's with it & spreading germs (aka giving yourself more spots) . Its very similar to the Urban Decay naked concealer but not as lightweight as that one , but for the price you couldn't beat it ! The pigmentation is amazing in this product and its guaranteed to sort out those Monday morning undereye circles . A little goes a long way too so the tube lasts me quite some time .

Loads more blogposts coming your way & if you have any blogposts or videos you would like to see just send me a  message . Always happy to help .

Purple Smokey Eye With Pink Glitter | Video Tutorial


This video tutorial took agesssssssssss to upload , countryside wifi for you ! To be completely honest I am such a creature of habit that I always go with brown & gold smokey eye on myself for a night out . If I was wearing a black dress or something really simple I would dress it up with a more dramatic make up look like this one .

Its a spotlight eye so I blend out the eyeshadow in the inner & outer part of my eyelid , leaving the centre free of eyeshadow . I then apply the pink glitter to the centre of my eyelid . You can use glitter glue or eyelash glue for this .

Glitter can be messy to work with so I would recommend doing your eyes first just so you can remove any fall out before applying your foundation .
