THE MAKEUP CHRONICLE: MAYKE-UP

The Makeup Bag




- Since moving back home last month I have had a serious shake up in the beauty and makeup department. 
My everyday makeup favourites are now nicely reunited with their pals that didn't quite make the move and my makeup storage is blossoming.
In the occasion of a clear out, I decided to switch up some of the contents in my makeup bag for May.
Whilst my face products have stayed practically the same,
(You can read my most recent 'Everyday Makeup' post HERE)
I have had a little move around in the eye makeup department as I was growing a little bored of my routine application of shadows from the Urban Decay 'Naked Palette.
A few weeks ago I spent my day in an archaive.
I discovered lots of old Vogue magazine's


I was really drawn to the makeup featured in the 1960's Vogues.
A strong, bold eye made up of super black liner and green eyeshadow.

Something about this whole look interested me so it was time to whip out the perfect products to create a 1960's inspired eye.

To begin I prime my eyelids with the Urban Decay Primer Potion I then take a light touch of some vintage eyeshadow that belonged to my Nana, a lady who back in the day was never seen without her striking 1960's green eye.
The colour is' Polished Teal' by Yardley London, it is a beautiful muted, matte turquoise shade that I apply all over my eyelid.


To enhance my ill defined eye socket I contour using MAC 'Green Smoke' shado, the shade complements the lid colour beautifully.


I then line my outereye with an emerald green Eyeko eyeliner and use the Laura Geller waterproof gel liner to add character to my tightline and waterline.
To complete the colour combination I pat a little L'Oreal 'Chrome Shine' in 'Dazzling Khaki' in the inner to middle portion of my eyelid.


This shade is actually a near as damn it dupe for MAC 'Green Smoke'.
To finish I apply lashings of the L'Oreal Double Extend mascara to my upper and lower lashes, the more the better.



I am currently really happy with this eye makeup routine and I am pretty sure that it
will be sticking around for June also!
