Morphe 35O Makeup Tutorial.

Makeup

Welcome back to my blog! I hope everyone is doing well! In the past two weeks, as you may have noticed, I have been MIA from my blog; I have been very busy going here, there & everywhere with University Interviews! But, I am back today with a makeup tutorial using my Morphe 35O palette that I featured on my blog just before Christmas! I have included step-by-step instructions as well as pictures, which I hope help you if you want to recreate the look below. So, if you would like to learn how I created the eye look that I have been loving lately, then please keep on reading! fullsizerender-36

  1. The first step I take when creating any eye look is to prime the eye using Mac’s Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre; this cancels out any discolouration, giving the lid one solid & neutral colour. I then set the lid using the lightest colour of the Morphe palette, which is going to make blending the shadows out in the next step a lot easier.
  2. Next, I take a fluffy blending brush to start applying the transitional shades into the crease. For this, I use the two warm toned light brown shades highlighted below, and keep blending and building up the colour until I am happy with how it looks. fullsizerender-37
  3. I then begin to deepen the crease using the dark orange shade in the palette; this helps to ensure that the shadows all blend seamlessly together, whilst also intensifying the crease’s colour ready for the next step. After this, I then add the darker shades to the eyelid. For this, I mix the two red/orange shades (my favourite colours from this Morphe palette!), and pack them onto the outer corner of the eyelid. I again, keep blending and swapping brushes until I feel the colours transition into each other, whilst trying to keep the centre of the lid as neutral as possible.fullsizerender-38
  4. After this, I take the gold shimmery shadow on a flat brush and apply it to the centre of the lid in the space that has been left shadow free. I repeat this until there is a good coverage of shimmer, making sure it blends into the red/orange colours on the outer corner (it’s all about the blending!). On the inner half of the lid I then use my gold glitter liquid liner, which is actually from Pound Land! This liner is jam packed with flecks of gold glitter, and has surprisingly good coverage (although the pictures aren’t doing it justice 😦 I do recommend trying it out!). I have been loving doing this step recently as I think it adds a lot to the look, and that the gold compliments the warm tones very well. fullsizerender-39
  5. I then do my face makeup, including foundation, contour and highlight; which I also apply (generously) to the inner corner of my eye and underneath the brow bone. For this particular look I chose the Revolution Makeup highlight in the shade ‘Golden Lights’ as I think the gold tones matched the eye look perfectly! (for more information on this highlight then check out my last blog post). I then use a mixture of all the orange/red shades to apply underneath the eye to balance out the lid shadows. This is a step I definitely never miss and think it makes a real difference!
  6. To finish the eye look off, I take my black liquid liner (which works best over glitter) and create a wing on the top lash line. Finally, I apply a coat of my favourite mascara to both the top and bottom lashes, making sure to curl them first before I do so! This last step completes my Morphe 35O tutorial!

Eyebrow Tutorial.

Makeup

Welcome back to my blog! It’s Friday, woo! For today’s post I thought I would share with you a step-by-step tutorial on how I do my eyebrows! I often get compliments on my brows(which are always the best type of compliment!), and think I have finally figured out how to create the perfect gradient brow! So, if you want to find out how I do my eyebrows, then please keep on reading. fullsizerender-35

1. The first step I take when doing my brows, is combing them through with the spoolie end of my eyebrow brush (Makeup Geek). I comb the front of my brows up, and the outer half sideways to create the shape I desire before I apply product. This only takes a few seconds, but is a step I definitely wouldn’t miss!

2. Next, I take my Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in the shade ‘Ash Brown’ and my Makeup Geek brow brush, and begin to fill in my eyebrows. I like to start with the arch/ outer half of my eyebrow as this is where most of the product will be. I then use little brush strokes to apply the pomade so the brow will look as natural as possible ( like real brow hairs). To create the tail of the brow I use more pressure so it is opaque and defined. I usually like my brows to be quite thick, so I draw on a new brow arch that is darker than my natural eyebrows, as you can see in the image below. fullsizerender-32

3. After this, I lightly draw a line underneath the front of my brow which will allow me to create the gradient effect I desire. I then, without applying anymore product, gently fill in the front section of my eyebrow, making sure to get lighter as I reach the front. I also like to check at this point that I am happy with the overall shape and colour of my brow; if not, I go in with my of the dipbrow until I am!

4. When I have created the brow I want, I then like to define it and clean it up using concealer (Freedom Concealer palette in shade’Light’). I use the lightest shade on a Morphe ‘M75’, which is a flat ended brush, and apply it underneath the brow. This gets rid of any mistakes, and really does make a big difference! I blend the concealer using my Real Techniques ‘Deluxe Crease Brush’ which defuses the product and blends it nicely into my Mac Paint Pot in the shade ‘Soft Ochre’, that I use to prime my eyes.

5. The final step I take when doing my eyebrows is setting them in place. I use the Maybelline Brow Drama mascara in the shade ‘Medium Brown’; it ensures that all of the hairs stay in place throughout the day so I don’t have to worry bout them smudging! And that completes my eyebrow tutorial!fullsizerender-34

I hope you enjoyed this post, and let me know if you would like more of these makeup tutorials! I will be back with another post soon.

Makeup Haul.

Makeup

Welcome back to my blog… and another haul post! This time I thought I would share with you what I recently bought from the my favourite makeup site, BeautyBay.com. So, if you want to know what I spent my money on this time, then please keep on reading!

For this online order, I only bought two pieces of makeup ( the rest being brushes etc.); Velour Liquid Lipsticks from the brand Jeffree Star Cosmetics, that were £16.00 each. The first shade I picked was ‘Unicorn Blood’ which is one of his best selling shades, soI am very happy I managed to get my hands on it! It is a classic dark red colour, with his usual pink packaging… definitely a good addition to my growing collection! The next shade I bought was ‘Sagittarius’ which is a cool toned purple from his 2016 Christmas collection. I love this colour for my skin and think it will compliment lots of different makeup looks, I also thought the red packaging was a great touch! I can’t wait to buy more! ( I have been eyeing up his new metallic liquid lipsticks). fullsizerender-23

The next items I ordered were two makeup brushes from the brand Morphe Brushes. The first is a highlighter brush that I have seen a lot of YouTubers use and love; the M501. It is slightly pointed, so perfect to achieve an intense glow! Plus it only cost £6.95, which I think is great value for a makeup brush. The next brush I purchased was the M527, it was slightly more expensive at £14.00, but I have to say it feels so soft and amazing quality! Again, I have seen lots of beauty gurus use this brush for contouring the face, so I can’t wait to give it a try for myself. fullsizerender-22

I also ordered myself a pair of false lashes from Ardell in the style ‘Natural Lashes Demi Wispies’. They look fluttery but still quite natural as the lashes get longer towards the end… I think they will finish off an everyday I look very well! Although I don’t normally wear false lashes, I have heard great things about this brand so for £4.95 I thought I would give them a go!fullsizerender-21

The last purchase I made from Beauty Bay was the Makeup Geek Travel Vault. It has the ‘Makeup Geek’ logo engraved on the metal lid, and is magnetic on the pan inside; I definitely loved the packaging! It will be perfect to keep my collection of their eyeshadow pans in and I look forward to filling it with more! The vault was £14.00, which is quite pricey for a empty palette I know, but it does feel expensive and it was a good investment piece for me!fullsizerender-24

I hope you liked my purchases, and no doubt their will be another makeup haul in the near future… I know, I’m addicted! But I am sure most of you share my passion for makeup and beauty, and might even be as obsessed as me! Let me know! I have lots of ideas for blog posts coming up so keep a look out!

Morphe 35O – 35 Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette.

Makeup

Welcome back to my blog, and my second makeup post! Today’s is going to be short and sweet, but I couldn’t resist sharing my latest beauty buy… the Morphe 35O-35 Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette. Despite the fact that it is nearing Christmas, I couldn’t help myself when I saw that BeautyBay (my favourite website to buy makeup from), had restocked the Morphe Palettes. When I went on the website all three palettes on my wish list (35o-35, 350M-35 and the Fall into Frost palette) were still in stock! So, I thought I would treat myself to one… it’s Christmas after all! I am pretty impressed that I didn’t order all three, it was very tempting. After a lot of debating, I settled on the popular 35O-35 Nature Glow Palette (pictures below).

I love the colours  as they are perfect for this time of year, not to mention that warmer tones are my favourite for creating makeup looks, especially the orangey brown shades. Additionally, it has a mixture of both shimmer and matte shades, definitely a good balance between the two! However, I have promised myself that I will wait until Christmas day to try out the palette, which is torture looking at the gorgeous colours and everywhere I look people are using it to create makeup looks! It’s safe to say I can’t wait to try it out and will definitely be doing a review on my blog after Christmas, so keep an eye out!
