Todays post is about this neutral glam yet simple makeup look. I really love these kinda looks, they’re one of my fave kinds to do. For me this is glam because i don’t ever go all out on eyes, but for some of you, you’re probably thinking, ‘hell she calls that glam?!’ I have issues going majorly bold, i will explain later on. Keep reading y’all!
I don’t know why but i just love browns, cranberry and warm shades, even though i associate them with fall and winter, i still wear them pretty much all the time because they’re gorgeous and i don’t follow rules, boy yaaaah.
I created this look using the Laminau Eyeshadow palette. This palette basically suits me perfectly, all my fave kind of colours in one place. It costs like £8.50 and not gonna lie, that’s a pretty darn awesome price. Anything under £10 and it’s won my heart already. It contains 15 colours which all vary from whites, creams, browns and blacks.
I want to cry when i look at my brows, they make me v v sad, i have like a random sparse area the top and it’s so annoying because they just won’t grow in that one place, cry.
But anyway, For my brows i used the ABH dip brow as per usual, and afterwards i had a idea, next time i will try using the brown shade from the palette, i’m starting to like using powder on my brows which i never thought i’d say so next time, thats totally what i’m doing.My eyeliners really not on point, it was a super stressful day. No word could describe my stress levels at that point, If i had to scale the stress it would be pretty close to ice cream, joggers and back to bed forgetting existence for the day. Let me explain this palaver…
i’d just perfected my eyeshadow, like yeah i’m happy with that, colours are fab and i’ve done an okay job seeing as i’m terrible at achieving dramatic makeup, even when i try
When i was at college my makeup teacher was forever telling me to go a little more crazy, stop toning it down, you’re being assessed for a red carpet look not a daytime look blah blah blah, so yeah i was pretty content.
I decided this look just needed a winged liner, so on with it i go, so far so good, You got this abs! I come to winging it out, tense moment and boom. A knock on the door, i jump because it scared the hell outta me and poked myself right in the eye, smudged the liner completely and ruined that eye makeup completely , My eyeball had liner on it, stung like mad! I couldn’t save it, no amount of cotton buds was gonna repair that mess. Long story short, i had to do it all over again. Never ever has it taken my so long to do my makeup. (Over an hour) Ugh, the struggle of liner is so real.
On a more positive note, I love this eyeshadow though, it’s really bold, a little goes a long way. Don’t go too heavy handed, it’s not as easy to blend all out. The shades are more matte than i usually use but i kinda like it.
I primed first with the Peaches and Cream eyelid Primer because it’s all about that base gal! I then set that with the white shade, which is white. Like as white as white can get. I love it. I have a think for white eyeshadows at the moment, they’re perfect for setting the primer, prevents creasing and all that jazz.
I basically built the colour up, starting with a light brown as a transition and slowly adding deeper colours. It’s the safest bet for me because i tend to bugger it up. So i went from light to darker browns then focused the colour in the outer corners of my eye. For this i used the deep red shade, blending then carrying the colour across. I used the same light peachy kind of shade on my lid, then added a little more! Pack that colour on girl!
For liner i used the Sigma line ace which i’m loving. Even when i do poke myself in the eye with it, big ouchie. As long as you don’t jump it’s so smooth and easy to use. Heheh. I never added lashes because i was being lazy. Like seriously 45 minutes after starting my eyeshadow i could not be dealing with false lashes, no chance. So instead i used the Benefit Bad Gal lash, my faveee.
But.. That’s all for today, i’m probably asleep right now. But hope you’ve had a fab day!
Loads of love,
