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,

Carnival makeup

Good day beauties, let’s hope we all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for a productive week.

Carnival has been in full swing in some countries, it’s a time of fun and enjoyment, showcasing beautifully made costumes with vibrant colours. Let’s just say it’s a celebration of art, whether for makeup or the design and making of the costumes.

One of the most interesting parts of carnival of course is the makeup, you can choose to go minimal or all the way out! Personally i’m obsessed with all the rhinestones, gems, glitters and paints that are used to create fabulous looks. Even though i won’t be a part of the celebrations, i wanted to share my look, you might get some inspiration as well as ideas on what you can create if you are planning to be a part of these festivals.

Now this look is bold, playful and fun! I have done looks like this before but to me this one stands out. Here it is guys!

I loved the combination of pinks, oranges and purples. For me blending these colours together takes time and patience, especially if you want a seamless and flawless finish.

For the lips i opted for an ombre effect, i’ve paired Coloured Raines ‘Berri Raine’ liquid lipstick with LA Girl’s liquid lipstick in ‘Dreamy’. Such a superb look, which you can achieve.

St.Patrick’s Day makeup look/green smokey eyes

FullSizeRender-98FullSizeRender

Hello everyone, happy Friday!

Here’s a look i did, you may know that green is synonymous with St.Patrick’s day and to add to that it’s one of my favourite colours. Yes i’ve said numerous times, i love neutrals but i do like stepping out of my comfort zone sometimes.

Fairly easy to achieve and suitable for any skin tone! I’ve also managed to use the Nyx Soho Glam palette to complete the entire look. I did a quick review of this palette, where i stated that i was a bit disappointed in the pigmentation, this isn’t one of the best palettes from Nyx, however i did what i had to do to make it work.

If you’re planning on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day then feel free to try this look. There a tutorial on how to achieve it. You can also use any green, black and brown in your collection.

Click link below. Have a great day.
