Hello bright eyes! Mastering the art of colourful eyeshadow
Monday, June 2nd, 2014

Unsure how to use the Makeup Revolution Palette in the latest British Beauty Blogger Dream Box? Let me walk you through it.

MURESEBMAKE

The first thing most people think when they see super bright colors like the ones in this palette is, “WOW what do I do with those!? Fancy dress?”, whilst the first thing a makeup artist thinks is,  “What’s the pigment like?”

I am going to teach you how to use the bright colours in this palette without you taking them off before you go out! The Revolution palette in sticks and stones, went to the top of my list when I turned it over and saw it using one of my fave words… “AWESOME eyeshadow and eyebrow palette”. There are two good eyebrow shades at the bottom of the palette, and when you use the little angled brush to fill in any gaps rather than paint your brows on you get a really natural effect. The pigment in the eyeshadows is quite strong when layered, but can also be toned down so they aren’t frighteningly bright if you aren’t used to coloured shadow. You could always use a cream shadow underneath it, either Bobbi Brown Cream Shadows are good or MAC Paint pots, to strengthen the colour.

Now I won’t go through all the different combinations of colours – I’ll leave that to you to play with them – but I would recommend just building and blending the colours as you play.

 

So for playtime, here’s how to get the look:

The Smolder Eye:

To make it somewhat different to the typical smokey eye, I didn’t put colour or black on the bottom lash line. So it’s a smolder just at the outer edge. Put whatever colour you choose all over your eyelid and use the highlighter in the similar colour on the inside of your eye. Then for the outer edge using the bronze, grey or black blend it in with a little bit of the brown to create a soft fade through the colours. You can also use the bronze in the eye crease to blend the edge of the colour so it doesn’t stop too abruptly.

Now if you want to make this stronger you can add a gel, liquid liner, or blend kohl liner into the lash line top and bottom, blending the bottom outer edge the way I did the top outer edge to create the fade.

 

The Bright Eye:

I have created a coloured eye look for you to have a go with, and I did this using purple (to show how it doesn’t always look like a black eye!) and my fingers. If you just layer the colour bit by bit, you may find it easier.

Start by putting the eye shadow all over your eye lid while tipping your head back so you can see your eye socket. Take the colour just above your eye socket  Now pat some more of your darker shade colour onto your eyelid only so it creates the fade out effect.

Using a brush or your finger drag some of the same coloured shadow along your lower lash line to meet the top at the outer edge. Then with your ring finger, press some of the highlight colour or a brighter colour on the inside of your eye (where I’ve put the pink). To keep it fresh and modern just apply mascara or a deeper purple liner only on the top lid.

My last tip for these looks is to wait and apply your foundation/BB cream or concealer after you’ve created your eye look, as eyeshadow drops! 

Have fun!

Tried & Tested: Balmain Hair Silk Perfume
Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Balmain_Styling_Mood_05_LR

Nowadays we wear more than just perfume to scent ourselves. Our body lotions have a different scent to our facial moisturisers; our shampoos vary from fruity to clean. Our nail polishes, our hand lotions, our anti-bacterials, our dry shampoos, and the list goes on!

Balmain Paris, who are famed for their couture clothing, shoes and bags, created a hair styling range inspired by the hussle and bussle backstage at their own shows. Now Latest in Beauty are giving you the chance to try one of the gorgeous Balmain hair styling products in the new BeautyMART BeautyBOX!

Balmain Silk Perfume is a beautifully scented multi-functional spray, which can be used on either wet (leave-in conditioner), or dry hair (shine spray/perfume). I have had the privilege of trying this beautiful product on both a model during a photoshoot and myself. I must admit it brings an extreme sense of elegance to hair anywhere; it brings summer to your follicles! It comes in a well-sized spray bottle and is easy to apply. When I used it on the model, I sprayed it into dry hair then braided it while I went on to do makeup. At the end of the session when the braid was taken out, the hair had a beachy wave, smelled amazing and was super glossy. Having damaged ends due to bleach I used it on myself; I applied it to freshly washed hair instead of my conditioner and let it air dry. It totally hydrated my hair and gave it a glossy shine as if it were freshly dyed! Just be sure to spray it with some distance between your hair and the bottle.

Not only does this product smell powder clean and sophisticated with its gardenia and white musk tones, but it also nourishes your hair with silk amino acids and argan oil, giving it a healthy, conditioned shine and leaving it feeling silky soft without making it greasy. So if you’re having one of those rush around mornings with breakfast on the go and makeup on the tube, give your hair a Balmain spritz and you’ll be ready for your own catwalk!
