Makeup Trial - Smokey Eyes

This outfit was what I had chosen to wear at a friend's wedding. I looooove the intricate embellishments and I balanced its show-stopping glamour with nude kitten heels. I wanted to try out two different smokey eyes to see what would look best - blue grey or black gold. I opted for the blue grey since it was also the theme of the wedding.

This look was inspired by Janet Jackson's Runaway. It's a beautiful song that sounds very cheerful and awakens the wanderlust spirit in all of us. Makes me want to dance, see the world and have a good time! Yeaaaahhhh!!!

Products used:

  • Bourjois Healthy mix serum foundation in 53 Light Beige
  • Liole Carry Me blusher in Cutie Peach
  • NYX Round lipstick in Tea Rose
  • NARS Smudge Proof eyeshadow base
  • Blue grey eye - UD Evidence, Madness, Prank, Shellshock, Ace and Blackout
  • Black gold eye - Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo metal eyeshadow in Barely Branded, UD Strike, Stash and Blackout
  • Maybelline Great Lash mascara in Blackest Black

Datenight! FOTD inspired by Bel Biv Devoe's Poison

This date-night FOTD is a little bit punk/grunge/rock but for some reason the song that kept popping up in my head while I was creating this look was Bel Biv Devoe's classic dance track Poison. 

Maybe it's something to do with the emerald green tones of the eyeshadow I used (including one called Poison!). I initially finished the look off with a beige lippy but somehow it didn't tie the overall look together - it looked too prim and proper - so I changed to a darker aubergine stain. 

Products I used:

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix gel serum foundation in 53 Light Beige
  • NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
  • Urban Decay Vice 2: Smokeout, Poison, Damaged
  • Urban Decay Naked in Virgin to highlight browbone and inner eyes
  • Essence kajal pencil in Black
  • Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof kohl kajal eyeliner in Nude
  • Maybelline Illegal Lengths mascara in Very Black
  • Lorac Pro powder cheek stain in Rosy Glow
  • Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Black Cherry (used as a stain)

Smokey Brown Eyes and Red Lips FOTD

This look was inspired by Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You".

It may be an overplayed Christmas holiday tune but you can't deny that it makes you feel excited to buy presents for your loved ones and happy like a giddy little child. 

I kept the eye very simple but dark enough creating a sultry, smokey look to balance the bright pop of cherry red lips. It's a look that can be dressed down or up depending on how you style your hair, clothes and accessories. 

Products used:

  • Maybelline FIT ME Foundation in 210 Sandy Beige 
  • Revlon Colourstay Pressed Powder in Medium
  • Bourjois Cream Blush in Healthy Glow
  • UD Primer Potion
  • It's Judy Time eyeshadow palette (sorry can't say the exact shades since it's unlabelled - mostly the brown ones and bronze)
  • Covergirl Clum Crusher Mascara in Very Black
  • Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof  Kohl Kajal eyeliner in Nude
  • Bite Beauty Line & Define Lip Primer
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Moss Lipstick in 111 Kiss of Life

    FOTD - Inspired by Lorde's Royals

    This look was inspired by the chill sounds of Royals by Lorde. It's a pretty simple, quick and easy look that one could put on in a mad rush!

This look was made for lounging around in, while listening to the hauntingly smooth sounds of Lorde - singing "Life is great without a care..."
