*Bright Neon Lips*
I created these using Kryolan Aqua Colour Liquid.
Fantastic under UV lighting.
These are SO bright they look stuck on.
Blue Ombré Lips
To achieve this look;
*Colour entire lip surface using NYX jumbo pencil in Milk (any White kohl pencil will do)
* Use Dark Orchid Cream Liner (Purple) to line the lips and the outer 3rd of the lip circumference.
* Below that purple, pat on Aqua Cream Liner (Blue) and fade off towards the White.
Simple and easy to achieve!
Sport these are a Festival this summer and you won’t go unnoticed!!
1. Apply BarryM lipstick in No.52 ‘Shocking Pink’ over the entire lips.
2. Then apply a White lipstick / kohl pencil in the centre of the lips and pat in to create a gradient.
3. Use a Red lip-stain along the line of your top lip, and again, pat into the Pink - I used ‘Rock’ by Kryolan.
4. Take an orange colour to do the same but along the bottom lip line. I used an Orange Paint Pout by Sleek!

I’ve tried to edit the ‘postID’ but for some reason it doesn’t work on Tumblr.
*Kryolan Shimmering Vision Interferenz Palette*
I have had this palette for a while now but I haven’t had the chance to sit down and have a play with it.
It’s a cream based make-up that is aimed for use as an eyeshadow, but they’re safe for use on the body as well.
They are all shimmery and the pigment is pretty good. They take a couple of swipes for a good opacity but taking into consideration that they are cream - its pretty good.
This palette is the only colour combination it comes in, but it covers all the necessary colour groups.
You have the top row which are the cool toned colours; White, Silver, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Purple and Gun Metal Charcoal.
The middle row are the warm toned colours; Yellow, Gold, Bronze, Copper, Bright Orange and Brown.
And then the last row contains colours including; Light Rose Pink, Red, Blush Pink, Light Purple, Teal and then Green.
I’ve tested these colours on the eyelids on their own and they look beautiful, BUT we mustn’t forget that these are cream and this means they do crease when worn alone.
When worn with an eyeshadow over the top they do grip to the skin a little better, but again, once the skin warms the product they will crease in the socket.
I’ve found over the years that less is more, and that if you apply the product to the lower part of the eyelid and drag the excess upwards (and do-not apply it close to the socket-line) then it wears better.
My favourite cream eyeshadows are Maybelline 24HR Tattoo Eyeshadows - these stick to the eye without creasing and the pigment pay-off is immense!
But the shimmer and glow of these Kryolan ones are hard to beat, it’s just a shame they aren’t durable like the Maybelline ones.
Overall all, I do like this palette and LOVE the colours!!! I would recommend it to makeup artists for photo shoots as you can keep an eye on the product and do touch-ups as necessary. AND it would be a fab product to place on the face & body in other areas, such as the cheekbones for avant garde looks!
But I don’t think this palette is suited as an eyeshadow as its too creamy to stay in place.
Easy Masquerade / Lace Mask MakeUp Tutorial
People go to balls throughout the entire year not just halloween and fancy dress parties, so I decided not to wait until such time to upload it.
I’ve recreated this look on clients many many times.
It’s ideal for those of you who don’t want to wear or carry a mask with you. And also if you can’t find one in your colour scheme, you can adjust the colours to suit!

Younique Moonstruck Minerals Pigment
I was sent these two pigments to try, and I have to say I really like them.
The two colours I received are ‘Curious’ and ‘Confident’
I particularly love Curious as its a beautiful iridescent Opal shade. And being as it is iridescent, when the light reflects off of the product it gives off a subtle Lilac / Pink appearance.
Usually with pigments I find they can be a little overpowering and often with this kind of tone they diminish any base colour they are placed over.
But this Younique Curious pigment is quite sheer which I am a massive fan of. You could place this pigment over any eyeshadow base and it will simply add an iridescence to the colour as opposed to covering it up and making it look Silver - which most other brands usually do.
The other shade, ‘Confident’, is like an Antique Gold colour. Again, very beautiful when the light hits it, the Gold pigment reflects wonderfully and is so eye-catching.
This is strong enough to be worn alone or over a dark eyeshadow colour such as rich dark Brown or a Black, for added depth & dimension.
The pay off of this particular shade is extremely good. You only need a small amount to gain full opacity.
If you wore this alone you may find it would crease in the socket line after a while as a lot of pigments do-so due to their texture, so I would advise using a good eye primer beforehand.
You can purchase these pigments online; www.fantasticlashes.net
They have a wide range of colours available in both shimmers and matte colours - 15 shades in each category.
Organising ‘some’ of my makeup kit!
I really do need more storage.
