Makeup Tutorial: Glamorous Eyes!

"The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion 
but cosmetics are easier to buy."
Yves Saint-Laurent


-Monday night called for a jug of 'Sex on the beach', some cheesy 90's music and my best friends.
Myself, Stanford Blatch and the lovely Charlotte got our gladrags on and went out to
celebrate the end of sixth form with some serious partying!

I posted a few photos of our night out on my Instagram and on my Twitter page and a few people left a few questions about my dress and imparticular my eye makeup. With this in mind I decided that I would re-create the look I wore for you in a tutorial.

OOTN.
My dress was from a 'pop up boutique' in Leeds, it was a barginous £10!

FOTN.
The lipstick I am wearing is a gorgeous Body Collection shade (available at Bodycare for 99p) and the shade is 'Hot pink'. 

If you would like to create this look for yourself then keep on reading.

1.
The Eyes.
Because of the nature of black eyeshadow and it's momentous fall out, I decided to put on my eye makeup first to keep the dark powders from ruining my face makeup.
For the look I used the following products:




I firstly used the Urban Decay primer potion to give my eyeshadow a good tacky base, preventing creasing and the eye makeup from moving.


I began by sweeping the shade China Cup from my Frontcover pallette (available at Boots) across my eyelids using a No.7 blend and contour brush.



Next I used the chocolate brown shade from my MUA extreme metallics pallette and placed this on the outer corner of my eyelid pulling the excess shadow through my socketline.



I used a gorgeous MUA eyeshadow in the shade 24. 
 It is a lovely heathery, lilac shade with a pearl finish, I placed that above my socket line and through the crease.


Lightly tracing my upper lash line, I used a black kohl liner to line my eyes, slightly winging it out a little. I then used a pencil brush to lightly smudge the line. I didn't line my upper lash line all the way across as it tends to make my eyes which are already quite small look even smaller. I finished by traced the kohl line with a Vivo cosmetics black eyeshadow in the shade 13. Black Sparkle



I then used Half baked from my Urban Decay Naked Pallette 1 in the inner portion of my eye and applied the kohl liner to my tightline and waterline. I then curled my eye lashes and applied two coats of the Loreal Lash Architect 4d mascara and one coat of MUA water proof mascara.



I finished the look by adding my favourite lashes of all time which are the Girls Aloud, Eylure Kimberley lashes.



2.
The Face Makeup



I kept the products on my face very simple as I wanted the statement eyes and lips to do the talking.

1.I used the Rimmel Fix and Perfect foundation primer in the shade 001. 

2. I appled the Bourjois 10 Hour sleep effect foundation with a foundation brush and then buffed it into my skin using a MAC 130 stippling brush.

3. Finally, I powdered in my eyebrows using an MUA dark brown eye shadow and used a Maxfactor 'Facefinity' pressed powder  to set my foundation and applied a light dusting of Loreal Glam Bronze  in Blonde Harmony to contour my cheeks.

Resulting in something that looks like this.


Love, Holl
