Tutorial: Spring/Summer Inspired Makeup Look

(Make sure you watch the video in HD!!)
This week’s tutorial is super easy, colorful and fun 🙂 I really hope you guys like it!!Last week Belinda and I headed down to  Yellagonga Regional Park for a fun spring inspired photo shoot. I had this vision of running through the tall grass looking all romantic and fun…of course reality hit when I remembered that I’m actually allergic to grass and so ended up being SUPER itchy! 😛 haha. Oh well, it was worth it because I love the photos 🙂 I will be posting the some very soon!!For my makeup I wanted something bright, but not too bright, fun and easy, as who wants to spend hours doing their makeup when a beautiful spring/summer day is beckoning?!I checked out the recent 2013 Spring/Summer fashion shows and when I saw the models’ makeup for the Christian Dior show I decided that was going to be my inspiration for this look.Here is the photo I came across:


My version is a little different. I skipped the black liner on the upper lash line, and instead of red lips I used a pretty pink lipstick. I also added some gold liner to my waterline and smudged a darker purple on my lower lash line.

Do you like my hair? It was so long and boofy I wasn’t sure what to do with it! So I put some product through it and then twisted bits of hair and pinned it back randomly. I was quite pleased with the result hehe. 🙂


Today is another fabulous spring day…made even better by that fact that my boy is coming home this afternoon!! I’m so excited 🙂 I woke up about 3 times last night ha ha.

So I shall sign off now as I have to head off to the airport soon!

Tutorial: Old Hollywood Glamour Makeup


 
Hola!!

I’m very excited to start up my video tutorials again 😀 Thanks to my family for buying me an awesome new video camera for my birthday!

I can now make my way through the list of requested tutorials! Starting with a look requested by one of my followers, Suzanne. She asked me if I could create an old hollywood glamour look. I decided to create a 1940’s inspired glamour look, soft eyes and bold red lips, rather than a 1950’s bold black winged liner and red lips. (I will be creating a 1950’s Marilyn/Dita look very soon though!)

This was meant to be a photo tutorial but I could not take good photos last night so I decided I’ll just take some pics at the end and I will create this look again for a video tutorial 🙂 

Speaking of tutorials I have to apologise for not bringing out a video last week! It was my goal to bring out a video once a week but I just have not made the time to sit down and start editing this Taylor Swift video. So I’m sorry about that. I shall edit it this week 🙂

Can you believe I only managed to take two goodish photos?! My face was not cooperating with the camera ha ha. It’s ok, I will take better pictures next time 🙂

What did I use?
Face: 

  • Morgan Annie Mineral Foundation in Light/Medium.
  • Peach blush from coastal scent blush palette.
  • Barry M Natural Dazzle Matte bronzing powder for contouring.

Eyes:

  • Barry M Kohl pencil in White on the lid and water line.
  • CS 88 Warm palette White over the top of the liner.
  • CS 88 Warm Palette Black in the crease and upper lash line.
  • Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid liner in black over the upper lash line and to draw on the bottom lashes
  • Inika eye liner pencil in black over the the shadow in the crease.
  • Inika mineral eye shadow in Smokin on the lower lash line.

Lips:

  • Elusyion lipstick in Blush.

And that’s it! This is a very monochromatic look, just black and white. It is a fun look and I am going to practice it so I can get the crease line a lot neater and the drawn on lashes more even.

If you like this look please share it with your friends!!

Lots of love,
