Practicing with some Purple for tomorrow’s photo shoot!
It’s all about the pout, it enhances the gradient I’ve created - that’s my excuse ;)
To create this lip I coloured in the entire surface top & bottom with NYX jumbo pencil in ‘Milk’
Then I took Sugar Pills Purple eyeshadow to outline the lips.
Using a clean flat brush, I pulled the purple down towards the centre of the lips, and upwards on the bottom lip to meet the middle.
On the centre I placed Sugar Pills Pink eyeshadow and blended it into the Purple.
Once I had a nice gradient, I took a white eyeshadow & just patted it into the very centre of the lips.
I used concealer to clean up around the edges and make the colour really stand out.
I received these eyeshadow samples from Sigma Beauty today, and I absolutely loved the Coppery Peach shade called ‘Reveal’
So, I decided to have a play, and I created a cut crease using the darkest shade ‘Eiffel’ to contrast against this beautiful colour! Shame the photo doesn’t do it justice.
I love nude eyeshadows, with a softly defined socket & a hint of shimmer on the lid. It’s the best way to create fresh looking eyes without looking like you’re wearing tons of eyeshadow.
I used Honey Lust mixed with All That Glitters, both by MAC, on the lid up to the socket.
And on the centre of the lid, I placed a touch of Shroom over the top of those colours, also by MAC - this makes the eye appear larger.
Using a Brown gel liner as opposed to a Black one is so much softer. Especially on a mature eyes.
To softly define the socket, I used a matte Brown eyeshadow by Louise Young.
I prefer to use a matte Brown as this sinks the socket where you place the colour, meaning you can create any eye shape you wish.
If you were to use a shimmery Brown it would reflect light, which pulls that area forward, defeating what you are trying to achieve.

I had a play this morning with some Lit Cosmetics glitter in ‘Beach Baby’.
I used a cream eyeshadow by Illamasqua called ‘Intrude’, to define the socket like crease, and I used Anastasia Beverley Hills ‘Brow Wiz’ to define my brow.
I also applied their highlighter ‘Duality’ on my brow bone to make the brow appear cleaner & enhance its shape.
To line my upper & lower lid, I used my Black liquid liner by Lime Crime in ‘Quill’.
If anyone has the Benefit ‘Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows’ or Maybelline ‘Tattoo 24HR Cream Eyeshadows’ that have dried out, check out my photo on how to fix it! I just revived my Benefit shadow.

Thought I’d have a play with some colour this afternoon.
I used Hypercolor in Pink by Anastasia Beverly Hills through my brows, and I added a purple eyeshadow at the base to enhance the line.
Then, I used NYX jumbo pencil in Milk across the lid to give a nice light base for my eyeshadow to pop against.
I push a pink colour across my lid from the Sleek Acid palette.
And I used Purple from Sugar Pill to create a cut-crease in my socket. I blended a Black shadow from the Acid palette into the Purple. This created a lovely gradient, and really stood out against the Pink on the lid.
I topped up the White under my brow with Sugar Pill, and also tapped a little of it on the inner corner of my eye.
I lined my lid and waterline with a kohl pencil in Smolder, from MAC, and used a Maybelline mascara! www.facebook.com/showmemakeup
I like to just play up my eyes as opposed to wearing too much foundation & intense lips.
So, I created a soft smokey eye & tousled hair, on myself for my sisters hen do yesterday.
I opted for some large lashes being as we were off to a cabaret evening. I usually wear something a bit more subtle.
On my eyes I used Benefit creaseless cream eyeshadow in ‘Birthday Suit’ & I used two browns by MAC to define the outer corners. On top of those, I used Bobbi Brown Black gel liner on the waterline & across the top lid.
This was quick to create.
I don’t like to wear foundation, so I just used a light mist of airbrush so it didn’t cover my freckles too much, and went for a more natural look to my skin. I added a touch of bronzer around my temples & cheekbones, and finished off with a bit of Harmony blush!
For my hair, I used a large Babyliss conical wand.
