The Look: Autumn Glam

So I had some fun with makeup the other day and got my lovely friend to help me do a mini shoot.

If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter you’ll know I’m a big fan of the cut crease, glitter lid look. I first attempted this with an Urban Decay glitter liner as you can apply it straight from the tube and was surprise and how well it turned out first time. I purchased a few LIT glitters at IMATS back in the Summer but was a bit nervous to try them as they are loose glitter with the adhesive applied separately but it turns out they are just as easy to use. I used the Lit glitter in Rhinestone Cowboy #2 for this look. I’d alway suggest wearing a shimmery shadow of a similar shade underneath to make the glitter really pop and so you can’t see your lid underneath (although thats a look all of its own!) I used Pewter from the Lorac Pro Palette and then just some warm browns in the crease.

I then took the look “from day to night” with Too Faced Melted Matte liquid lipstick in Evil Twin which I LOVE so much! I actually thought it was dark brown at first but turns out it’s a super dark, deep plum colour with a brown undertone. Come to mama!
Even though it’s quite a full on look I think it’s quite wearable (particularly pre- lipstick).

This is such a great way to do a bit more of a “glam” look, I’ve had so many compliments on the various versions I’ve tried so far. You’ll definitely see me rocking this look more often and I’ll prob be dropping a bomb on more Lit glitters in the near future.

The Look: Graphic Liner & Neon Lips

This was a classic example of something that looked better in real life than on camera! It’s really hard when you’re taking the pics yourself and don’t have someone else directing you.

Everyone knows I’m and eyeliner kind of gal and my obsession with graphic liner is real. It’s definitely more of a fun/ editorial look (unless you’re feeling hella bold!) but I tried to do something that could be a bit more wearable. It was actually really hard to get the lines clean and even! I used an eye liner pen which I think was an error, it had more control than a brush but I do think I would have gotten a cleaner finish if I’d used a gel liner. Gotta love those neon lips doe…

Products used:

  • Estée Lauder Little Black Liner
  • Melt lipstick in Bang Bang

The Look: Blue Eyeliner & Orange Lips

I’ve wanted to try this look for ages so decided to play around and give it ago and I really like how it turned out. ‘Scuse the brows y’all, they’re in dire need of a thread!

Also a little annoyed with how the base turned out, I really wanted it to be super bronzed and glowy but my contour went slight patchy on my cheeks for some reason. Laaaaame.

For the eyes & lips I used:

  • Laura Mercier Crème Eyeliner in Cobalt*
  • MAC Matte Lipstick in So Chaud
