Spring flower (the aster)

Hello lovelies,

Can you believe we are actually getting closer to Summer? My second favourite season! Spring is hands down my favourite season as it represents rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal and regrowth. All the beautiful flowers bloom and the surroundings look so cheerful and happy!

I’ve decided to do a flower inspired makeup look and the flower i chose was the aster. Asters are daisy like perennials with starry-shaped flower heads. They bring delightful colour to the gardens.

This look was so much fun to create, using one of my favourite colours on both my eyes and lips. The purple is so bold and pops really nicely on my skin tone!

I mixed two different lip colours and i really liked the outcome. Sometimes having no idea of what you’re doing can sometimes lead to something outstanding and that was the case for my lipstick choice.

To see how i did this look, check out video linked below. Happy watching and thank you, always.

Soft sunset eyes

Hello lovelies,

I previously did a review/swatch on the OPV Beauty ‘Gorgeous’ palette, see here.

https://shaunzworld.com/2017/05/06/opv-beauty-gorgeous-eyeshadow-palette/ I wanted to test out the eyeshadows with a base on my lids to see if they would come off more pigmented and of course the shimmery shades worked well, with just a little bit of fall out. As for the matte shades, i had to work a little extra on them by packing them onto my lids for them to actually show up on my skin how i wanted them to. I also added some setting spray to my brush, so that i could intensify the eyeshadows some more, that my friend always work like a charm!

Here’s the first look i created from the palette, i will be using it to create other looks as well.

As you can see a very soft, simple and effortless look. If you like simple, beautiful looks then you’d truly appreciate this one.

How to achieve eye look:

Use a primer or base of choice, a white base will make the shadows pop a lot more so i would recommend that.

Use orange shade as crease colour or transition if you will, add a brown shade to intensify the crease. Blend both together very well for a seamless finish.

Add the bronze shade to outer areas of the lid, then the golden yellow to inner parts of the lids, blend ends where they both meet into each other, so there are no harsh lines.

Remember blending is your friend when it comes on to makeup application! Then proceed to lining top lash line and add lashes for a more dramatic effect. Easy lemon squeezy haha. On the lips i have OPV Beauty matte lipstick in ‘Fame’.
