Weekend soft glam!

On the search for a soft, pretty glam look? Look no further, so i saw Rihanna’s Grammy makeup and i fell in love, it’s beautiful, and can be worn anywhere.What i’ve realised is that most of the makeup looks at the Grammys were soft and pretty, i guess that’s the trend right now and i’m really loving it.

This is a very easy to achieve look and is suitable for any skin tone. If you’re planning to do anything special this weekend, try this look! It’s very similar to one of my Valentine’s Day looks now you know how much of a fan i am of warm, subtle shades.

Edgy purple makeup look

Hello there, hope all is well. When it comes to makeup looks, i’m such a creature of habit! I love sticking to more subtle, wearable looks but sometimes i like to step outside of my comfort zone and do something a little more dramatic. Now i’ve posted a couple of Valentines’ Day looks that were soft, romantic and very much wearable, however i decided to do another look that’s a bit more out there, even though Valentine’s Day has passed haha. Makeup is art and i love mixing it up, we don’t need to be mundane. I use makeup to express myself as well as a way of entertaining and sometimes teaching others. This look may not be everyones taste but i liked it a lot, purple is one of my favourite colours and i have so much fun when i play around with bold, vibrant shades.

To achieve this look, i’ve used several different shades from the Shany and Morphe palettes. I’ve also used the Revolution 144 eyeshadow palette as well. For the lips i mixed LA Girls liquid lipstick in Stunner and Black Currant, so it’s somewhat of an ombre effect.

I’ve done a video, so swing by if you’d like to see it step by step. Thanks for stopping by

Lovely Antigua (Fun in the sun)

beach-bum1df52d57-06a9-40bc-adb9-152638d8c150img_1277p1010703

Just having the ability to enjoy the beautiful beaches, and sunsets are just two of the many reasons Antigua is the place to be! What a lovely time with some of my closest friends? we played cricket which is a very popular sport on the island, we splashed about in the ocean, drank cocktails and did a bit of yoga whilst watching the sun set.

Check out vlog on my channel, i hope you get some inspiration as well as entertainment. It may be cold where you are but warmer days are ahead. Stay safe and have a great day or night.

Easy & effortless Valentine’s Day look

img_4503fullsizerender-91fullsizerender-90fullsizerender-92

Hello beauties, i’m showing off another Valentine’s Day look, so if the first one wasn’t up your street, perhaps you’ll prefer this classic look. Red lips are quite popularly worn on Valentine’s Day, just because it’s sultry, sexy and goes perfectly with any eye look and skin tone.

This is hands down one of my favourite combinations! I’ve kept the eyes quite simple and neutral, then went in with bold lips. If you know me, then you know that i tend to gear towards more simplistic, easy to achieve and wearable looks, so this one is no different. Whether you’re dark or fair skinned, you need not worry, i’ve made sure to cater for both.

I do hope you like this look as much as i do, i’ve also done a video, so be sure to check it out. There you’ll see the products i’ve used and how i went about creating the look overall. Thanks for indulging me, have a wonderful day.

 

Love, Shaunz xo

 

Affordable and Cruelty free palette-Shany Cosmetics iLookbook

Hello everyone, i was on Amazon the other day searching for bits and pieces when i came across a palette that caught my attention straight away! I’m always on the prowl for affordable makeup and beauty items, and i also like to support any brand that’s cruelty free and caters to the masses.

Now this palette is so cleverly made, it resembles a mini ipad which made me chuckle a tad bit, i thought it was the sleekest thing i’ve ever seen, so naturally i purchased it. I love anything that’s different and standouts. Most of all the palette was inexpensive, and i’m all for a good bargain. I’ve used Shany Cosmetics eyeshadows before which i’ve spoken about in previous posts, i’ve mentioned how much of a fan i am because of their quality in terms of pigmentation and their price point. The palette i speak of is their iLookbook, sheer genius, i give it a thumbs up for packaging!

This is how Shany Cosmetics site described this palette:

“This sleek laptop design includes 35 handpicked trendy shades by our team of professional makeup artists. The colours range from neutrals, purples, blues and other vivid shades. This hypoallergenic product is great for sensitive skin and won’t cause irritation. The lightweight laptop can fit almost anywhere and is a great palette to take with you to school, work, or wherever life is going to take you. High quality products don’t have to be expensive. Shany is a member of PETA and all of our products are cruelty-free.”

Romantic Valentine’s day makeup look

img_4376img_4375

This is such a feminine, soft and romantic look, very fitting for Valentine’s day. I loved the fact that it can be worn on any skin tone as well. I used all Drugstore, affordable products, so basically this look is very budget friendly. Who needs to break the bank when there are amazing products out there that are inexpensive!

For my face i used L’oreal’s Tru match foundation, then L’oreal’s translucent powder to set everything in place. I used Sleeks contour kit in medium, LA Girls concealer for highlighting under my eyes, forehead, top of my nose, cupids bow and chin, the Sacha buttercup powder to set the concealer in all the areas i just mentioned. For Highlighting the top of my cheeks, City Colour highlight trio and Nyx blusher in Mocha.

I used the Shany 7 layer masterpiece kit for my eye look, honestly this kit is so worth having, i also used the brown from the Wet N Wild vanity palette to intensify the crease area. Then for the lips LA girls matte liquid lipstick in dreamy, but i used  NYX lip liner in cocoa to outline my lips and make sure that i fill them in a bit so the lipstick doesn’t look crazy, this shade when used on women of colour has to be used with a brown lip liner to tone it down a bit.

I’ve done a video on the entire look so be sure to check it to get a more in depth look. See video down below.

Thank you for stopping by, have a wonderful Monday.
