Rainy Spring Greens

Hello Beautiful! Today's makeup look is inspired by the spring time with its flowers and bright luscious greens. I'm using the very pigmented and colourful Sleek Makeup I-Divine Ultra Mattes V2 Darks palette as my main muse.  


The Eyes Have It!
1. Prime your eyes with a neutral base like Ruby Kisses eyeshadow magic primer. Allow to set a bit.
2. Using a flat shader brush, pat on a shimmery pink pigment like DaVinci Cosmetics Sheneine 089 all over the eyelid right up to the crease area. 


3. Using the dark green shade called Fern from the Sleek Makeup Ultra Mattes V2 Darks palette and a small precise brush, apply the green using a cut crease technique concentrating the green towards the outer edge and fading the green as you go towards the tear duct area.
4. Next take a dark brown shade like Paper Bag and blend out the green moving upwards and concentrating the colour to the outer area of the eye fading inwards.
5. Use a skin tone shade like Dune blend out any harsh edges of Paper Bag.
6. Highlight the brow area using a lighter shade called Pillow Talk. 


7. Run NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Cucumber in the lower waterline and lower lash line area. Set the lower lash line with Fern.
8. Complete the eye look with a dark brown liquid liner. My favourite is Prestige liquid liner in Black/Brown. Add mascara and/or falsies. 
       


I kept the rest of the face pretty basic, just even out the skintone, a soft pink blush to add a touch of colour to the cheeks and a soft pink lipgloss to balance out the greens in the eye look.

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise! 

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you. I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on. But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway
