Celeb inspired look-Rihanna ‘Wild Thoughts’

I’ve never really been one to jump on the celeb makeup look ¬†bandwagon, but i was truly inspired by this one. Rihanna’s latest song collaboration, the video that is for ‘Wild Thoughts’ was nothing short of great quality. She always brings her best to the table and that’s why she remains one of the top artistes of our generation.

Her makeup look was absolutely amazing! The moment i saw the video i thought to myself, perfection! I loved the colours, just so vibrant and bold, very fitting for Summer.

I had to recreate the look. It is inspired so it may not be the exact replica of hers. I found this makeup look so much fun to do, i’m an avid lover of bold colours, even though i’d never actually wear them out on a daily basis, but just working with them, mixing and blending puts me in a happy place.

To break down the look;

For the face i mixed Maybelline’s Fit Me foundation in Truffle and Caramel. LA Girls concealer in Fawn for the under eyes and Sascha Buttercup powder to set the concealer in place.

To set my foundation i used the usual Mac Mineralise Skinfinish in Dark deep. Sleeks contour kit in medium and to highlight the top of my cheeks, Revolution bronzer in Rock on world.

I used three palettes to complete the eyes. Revolution Redemption palette (one of the blues for outer corners), Cargo California Throwback (the teal and very dark brown for the lid and outer corners) and Morphe 25A (couple light shades for the brow bone area and a brown for the transition shade), i sort of winged it as i wasn’t exactly sure about the shades of green she wore.

The lips were a combination of Coloured Raine’s Cherry Blossom and Colourpop’s Creeper. I loved the outcome! To see the tutorial for this look, see link below.

Love,

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’.

To see how i did this look check out video! Thank you.
