Cherry Blossom Inspired Look

 Hello everybody,

Honestly it feels pretty weird to be making a cherry blossom inspired makeup tutorial when it is the middle of summer in Australia or winter in the rest of the world. But, I could not pass on this look when i saw it on Pinterest, it was too cute not to try out.

Eyes

  1. Start off by applying a light gold shimmer shadow on the eyelids. I use a dense wide brush and I sweep the product back and forth in a windshield wiper motion, to ensure even coverage. I also drag any left over product on the brush onto my lower lash line.
  2. Using a crayon matte black eye liner I create a small cat eye, making sure that the wing is not too long. Using a small angled brush with a matte grey shadow on it I go over the cat eye I made with the crayon eye liner and I smudge the line creating a kind of hazy effect.
  3. In addition, I apply the crayon eye liner on the outer third of my lower lash line and then using the grey shadow and the angled brush I then apply the shade on the outer third of my lower lash line and smudge the eye liner.
  4. With a hot pink eye shadow I apply it on top of eye liner only covering the upper half lid. Then in the centre of my eyelids I apply a lighter pink shade making sure it blends with the hot pink shade.
  5. Using a shimmer tan shade I apply it along the inner corner of my eyes, in an attempt to make them sparkle and pop.
  6. Finishing touch is to apply a black mascara on the bottom and top lashes.

Lips

  1. To make sure those lips are not chapped apply lip balm.
  2. Using a pink/orange shade apply it on the centre of the bottom lip and smudge it out and smack your lips so that the colour can transfer onto to the top lip.

That is it that guys and the look is complete. I hope you guys enjoyed it and if you did please like this post or share your thoughts with me in the comments section. In addition, I have put a video version of this look on this post and I hope that you guys support my YouTube channel too.

New Earrings

Hello everybody,

I know it has been a long time since my last blog post, but I have finally graduated from high school! I must admit it was a very tough year for me, but I made it and I only have three more exams left to sit. Once those exams are finished I will finally be free!

Anyway if you have been following my blog for a while some of you may know that I adore earrings (earring collection post), and my Mum just came back from Europe and as a gift she bought these adorable earrings.

They are very cute statement earrings and I believe that they would be perfect for spring and summer especially since the weather is hot and humid and for girls with thick hair like me, the hair is always in a bun during those seasons. In addition, wearing statement earrings can make give an extra depth to an outift.

Also, please excuse the lighting and quality of the photos where I am wearing the earrings. It’s pretty obvious I have been out of commission in terms of blogging. But anyway this is the end of my very quick update to you guys about how I have been going lately. My last exam is on the 21st of November, so from them on please be patient for my regular return.

Soft, Unique Makeup Tutorial

Hello everybody,

Today I’m going to be sharing with you all how to create this makeup look which is very soft and unique as it incorporates both warm and cool tones.

Eyes

  • To begin with apply a tan shade all over the eyelids using a big fluffy eyeshadow brush.
  • Using a small eyeshadow brush apply a shimmery brown shadow on the inner corners and outer corners of the eyelid.
  • In the centre of the eyes apply a matte neutral pink shade on the centre of the eyes. You can build the colour up until you get the desired shade.
  • Using a flat eyeshadow brush apply a hot pink matte shade on the outer corner of the eyes by first creating a ‘v’ shape and then blending the colour in.
  • Using a small eyeshadow brush apply a light blue shimmer shadow on the lower lash line only on the inner and outer lower lash line.
  • Using a black eyeliner line the upper lash line (try not to make the line too thick) and only creating a very small flick

Lips

  • Using a purple/red dark lipstick apply it on the bottom of your lips.
  • Smack your lips and distribute the colour evenly using your finger.
  • You don’t want your lipstick to be harsh but rather soft.

I hope you guys enjoyed reading my post and if you want to see the YouTube version of this post I have posted a link down below. Also, please share with me your thoughts on this makeup look in the comments down below.

Yellow Sunset Makeup

Recently I have been seeing all over Instagram and YouTube that everyone has been obsessed with yellow eyeshadow. To be honest I love this trend and I hope it lives, and is not just around for this spring/summer (or winter if you live in Australia).

Eyes

  • Start off by applying a light brown matte shade all over the eyelids.
  • Now apply a yellow eyeshadow all over the eyelids. In order to ensure that the colour is bright you may need to apply a couple of shades onto your eyelids. I personally feel that a cream eyeshadow would work best instead of a powder eyeshadow.
  • Using a hot pink matte shade and a blending brush apply the product on the outer third of your eyes making sure that it blends in with the yellow eyeshadow. When the two colours meet they will create a dark orange colour which will then act as a gradient with the yellow and pink.
  • With a pearly shimmer shade apply it on the inner corner of the eyes. This will allow the eyes to pop.
  • Using a medium brown shade apply it halfway along the lower lash line. By doing this you are creating a balance with your eyes so they don’t look too top heavy.
  • Time for eyeliner, in order to capture the softness of a sunset I would actually suggest that you use a black crayon eyeliner. For this look I applied my eyeliner by starting out and then working my way halfway in and then going back out in order to create the flick.

Lips

  • Using a mauve lip liner apply it all over the lips. This will act as a base and allows the lipstick to stay on longer and not crack.
  • Using a bright orange lipstick apply it all over the lips.

That is it guys. The makeup look is very simple to do and does not take that much time to complete. Please make sure to check out the YouTube tutorial version of this makeup link, which I have linked down below. Also, don’t forget to check out my giveaway, which will be finishing soon.

Peachy Keen Makeup Tutorial

Hello my lovelies,

Today I’m going to be sharing with you all this very girly and feminine makeup look inspired by peaches. It incorporates a variety of pinks and tan colours in order to create a soft yet vibrant look. So let’s gets started.

Eyes

  • To start off with apply a light brown matte shade all over the eyelids.
  • Then going in with a shimmer tan shade apply it on the centre of the eyelids.
  • Now using a fluffy blending brush use a light pink matte shade and apply it on the outer third of the eyes. Make sure it blends into the shimmer tan shade on the centre of the eyelids.
  • Use a hot pink matte shade and apply it on the outer third of the crease and the eyelids and blend it into the light pink shade. This will give your eyes more depth. In addition with the same shade apply it on the outer third of the lower lash line.
  • Now to make your eyes pop out some more use a medium brown shade and apply it on the outer crease of the eyes and blend. This will just add a nice colour to seperate the pinks.
  • Using a crayon eyeliner tight-line the outer third of your eyes and the inner third. Using the same eyeliner create a very subtle and thin cat eye. Do not extend the cat eye all the way across the eye only do it half way.
  • Using a matte black shade and an angled brush go over the cat eye and blend it out so it does not look harsh, but soft.
  • Using a pearly white shimmer shade apply it to the inner corners of the eyes, so they pop out.
  • To finish off the look apply generous coatings of mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

Lips

Pretty in Pink Makeup Tutorial

Hello my lovelies,

Welcome back to my blog and today I’m going to be showing you guys who to create this really soft and delicate makeup look, comprised of pinks and gold. It is a really sweet and subtle makeup look that softens the facial features and is perfect for a spring day. Let’s get started!

Eyes

  • Using a flat eyeshadow brush apply a light beige shimmer shade all over the eye lids.
  • Using a fluffy blending brush apply a matte pink shade on the outer third of the eye and blend the colour out. With the left over powder apply it to your lower lash line. For this look I’m technically using a blush shade, but I like how vibrant this shade of pink is.
  • Now using a small eyeshadow brush apply a lilac shade on the centre fold of the crease on the outer third, and with the same fluffy blending brush used previously blend it into the pink shade. What this does is it gives more depth to the eyes so they don’t look flat.
  • With a pale gold shimmer shade and a flat eyeshadow brush apply the colour all over the centre of the eyelids
  • Using an angled brush get a brown or dark purple eyeshadow and line your eyes creating a cat-eye.
  • Now it’s time to add highlight to your eyes. Apply a white shimmer shade on the inner corners of the eyes and halfway across the inner lower lash line. Also do not forget to apply the white shade onto the brow bone.
  • Using any mascara load up your lower and upper lashes with them.

Lips

  • With your ring finger apply a cherry coloured lipstick on the inner most part of the lips and with your your ring finger spread the colour out, this will create a gradient lip effect. Of course if you guys don’t want to use your finger you can use a flat makeup brush.

Thanks for reading this post and please check out my YouTube video on this look.
