Summery lips to match the summery weather here in the UK! 

On my lips I have Kryolan Lipstain in ‘Pop’ which is a hot Pink. 
And on the centre of my lips I have ‘Marilyn’ which is a High Gloss with glitter in, also by Kryolan. 

This will last all day as it’s a Lipstain.

House Of Lashes have landed on the ShowMe MakeUp desk this morning! These are the new ‘Iconic’ lashes, and a set of bottom lashes to go with them. I can’t wait to use these in a tutorial. I don’t usually like thick banded lashes, but I’ve heard great reviews on these, so I will give them a go and let you know how I get on. 
*TIP*When using strip lashes with a thick band, warm them up with a hair dryer and then bend into a ‘C’ shape while they cool down. The warmth from the hairdryer warms up the glue on the band which makes it moldable. So they should cool off into more of a curved shape which will sit better on your eyelid. There’s nothing worse than a strip lash that keeps pinging-up one side! 

You can purchase these lashes at www.houseoflashes.com

*IN LOVE*I recently received these Liquid Metal Liners from Eyeko to try out, and I am in love with these two!! I have Black Onyx & Rose Gold, and both are well pigmented. The Rose Gold as you can see is extremely reflective, and the Black Onyx has gold pigments reflecting through it which is simply stunning! These pens have an ‘easy-to-use’ twist dispenser at the base of them, and this releases the product through the soft brush tip. The colour of the product is viewable through its see-through barrel at the base, which I like. You only need one turn of the bottom for a nice amount of product to be dispensed. My initial thought was that the product was quite watery, which led me to think it was going to require a few layers in order to build up a good opacity, but I was wrong; watery it may be, but the pigment is great and it dries very opaque. It doesn’t shift, flake or fade based upon my first trial with them.You need to apply this evenly to make sure it dries evenly. The above picture is based upon one twist of the pen and one layer of the product onto my skin, and as you can see its great! The Rose Gold is like foil, its super metallic and reflective. It takes about 20 seconds to dry, so make sure not to look up when applying this to the eye as you don’t want to ruin the liner you’ve applied.
What I also love about these pens is that you can swipe them onto your lashes once your mascara has dried, and it with give the ends of them a dip-dyed effect! I removed this with a facial wipe and it came off fabulously. There’s nothing worse than using a product that doesn’t shift at the end of the day. So it’s rather perfect in my eyes! What more can you ask for in a liner pen? It doesn’t shift when you wear it, but comes off with ease when you’re ready to remove it. These are available to purchase from a variety of places online, but here is a link to Eyekos website; www.eyeko.com

*Bright Neon Lips*
I created these using Kryolan Aqua Colour Liquid.
Fantastic under UV lighting. 
These are SO bright they look stuck on.

I started with a white base on my lips - NYX pencil in Milk. 
Then I applied the Yellow paint in a stipple motion with my brush. Concentrating on the centre of the lips and feathering outwards. 

Next I applied the orange shade from the rim of the lips feathering towards the Yellow. Once that dried, I went back in with the Yellow and blended it over the seam of the orange just to create a more subtle transition. 

Lastly I applied the Pink paint. 
I spent a little time defining the edges of the lips, and then I patted that colour onto the Orange to create a gradient.
