Last year I created an Arabian style makeup look on my eye, and I uploaded the image to my social media accounts as well as on here, which proved extremely popular - so I decided to do a tutorial on my channel, recreating the eye makeup. And here it is!
I LOVE these Mink eyelashes that ESQIDO sent me today!
They have a handful of beautiful handcrafted mink eyelashes within their range.
The sets I have been sent are;
I will be using these within some upcoming tutorials!

New makeup tutorial is up - I’m looking for someone to find me a fitting title for this tutorial.
I have done a write up on a previous post on how to get this eye makeup.
All products used in this tutorial are listed in the description bar.
I created this Cranberry coloured eye look today and I paired it with an Aubergine dark lip.
To get the look;
I used ‘Soft Ochre’ paint pot, by MAC, over the eyelid. This neutralises the lid & also prevents the shadow from shifting.
To give a smooth and tack-free surface to apply the coloured eyeshadow to, I swept Vanilla eyeshadow from MAC over the entire lid up to the brow bone.
Though the socket line I added a light transition colour; I mixed a matte Red eyeshadow with a matte Camel coloured eyeshadow, and on a blending brush I softly shaded through the crease of the eye. The purpose of this was so that I could place a darker colour through the socket line afterwards and it would make light work of the blending.
On the very centre of the mobile eyelid I patted on a soft satin finish eyeshadow from Anastasia Beverly Hills. This colour is the lightest shade from an eyeshadow duo they created back in 2012. This duo was called ‘My Bedford’
Next, I placed Cranberry eyeshadow from MAC, on the inner & outer 3rd of the eyelid. So, this emphasised the lightest shade I placed on the centre of the lid, making it appear larger just in the centre.
On the outer ‘V’ of the eye I placed the darker eyeshadow from the ‘My Bedford’ duo palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills, which is a deep purple colour. This deepened the outer edge of the crease, and created more dimension. I used a fluffy blending brush to soften the placement of the purple eyeshadow, so the colours blended seamlessly.
Underneath the lower lashes I mimicked the top lid, using the same colours but in a smaller amount so it just smoked the lower lash-line.
After the eyeshadow was complete, I used a cream liner by Kryolan in the colour Aubergine. I painted this across the waterline & I also tightlined the eyelid. This means to paint underneath the top lashes, to rid any pink fleshy tones, which makes the eye look even more smokey.
And lastly, I applied a top set of eyelashes; M102 by Eldora Eyelashes And a bottom set; ‘Precious’ by House Of Lashes
Further to my last post regarding my ‘lived in’ eyelashes; here is a before and after photo so you can see the difference and what to expect once they’ve been soaked and dried.
I’ve left the glue on them from yesterday so I could stick them back into the casing, then I remove it when I next wear them.
As you can see, they become a little wispy & almost scruffy compared to the pair at the top, which are crisp.
BUT they will most certainly look SO much more natural & real once they are on your eyes. These are the pair I was wearing in the photo previous to this post.
Some of you asked on here and on my Instagram, what product I soak my falsies in; I use hot tap water (not boiling) and Johnson’s Baby shampoo in a small pot.
It’s a great way to remove old glue that’s attached to the lashes.
The glue goes white when it’s been soaked, and peels away so easily.
Selling my Kryolan HD Micro Foundation Cream palette - 15 colors.
HD Micro Foundation Cream is a micronized foundation with unique light reflection.
Optically, it significantly reduces the shadow effects of wrinkles. Which means that it enables natural, youthful appearance especially with make-up for high-definition camera techniques for film, TV and photography.
Also a great palette for natural highlighting & contouring.
At the same time, special ingredients protect the skin from ultraviolet radiation and from harmful environmental influences.
HD Micro Foundation Cream is ECARF certified.
Thinly and evenly apply HD Micro Foundation Cream with a very fine-pore make-up sponge or foundation brush and set it with HD Micro Finish Powder or a generic translucent powder.
As you can see I’ve used two of the pans a fair bit, but the rest are either untouched or have a small scraping from them.
Ideal for any makeup artist kit!
The front of the palette is a little battered due to being carted about.
Its been hygienically used by scraping out the foundation with the use of my palette knife.
I’ve used this palette on A-list celebs such as Formula 1 driver Jenson Button, for TV & interviews.
RRP - £89.00 selling for £55 plus P&P.
