Secret Garden

Today I asked on Instagram what kind of makeup you wanted to see, I got some answers saying statement eyes, greens, grunge.. So I merged as many wishes as possible together and did this! The turqouise KIKO pencil on my waterline and blended over the lids, Makeup Geek Secret Garden all over the lids and blending it all out with KIKO Olive Green. Same thing on both top and bottom lid.

By the way, I featured a picture of the main products in this look at the bottom of the post. Good thing, boring thing?

Cher

I’m back betches!! I took a break from the blog and travelled north to visit my parents for about a week. Now I’m back in the south with some new energy, let’s kick it off with some pinky purples and holo glitter, ok?

Can you believe that all the colour shifts on the eyelid is from the same eyeshadow? Cailyn Fantasy is such a trooper. The top lid was primed with a lavender concealer to enhance the cool tone of the shadow, when dusted on top of a black liner it turned bright pink and on the bottom lid it turned into a neutral peach on top of the soft brown. So versatile!

Some days when you don’t have much time to do your makeup you just start mindlessly whacking makeup on your face hoping for the best. Or am I the only one doing that?

Today I started blending a medium brown shade from my neutral Viseart palette all over the top and bottom lids thinking that it would be my look for the day, but of course I couldn’t resist MOAR SHADOWS. So I got my new Makeup Geek Duochrome Eyeshadows out (I will show you soon!) to add some shimmer on top. First a soft sweep of Ritzy focusing on the center + inner corner of the lid realizing that it turned into a weird greenish mustard shade, so I deepened it with cool toned dark green Secret Garden, applying it on the outer corner softly fading inwards. Magic happened and it turned into the most PERFECT reddish golden green look? Yeah, I’m surprised too.

Deadbeat

Happy new year friends, hope you had a great one! Last night I celebrated at home with Jerry and the animals, cooking and drinking frozen strawberry daiquiris while wearing sweatpants. I wore my new years glam at work earlier in the day instead! A basic black smokey cat eye (very similar technique to what I did in this video tutorial) with a bunch of sparkly glitter on top. How much glitter did you wear last night?

The glitters I wore were both from Lit Cosmetics, I patted dark grey Gunsmoke in size #3 all over the top and bottom lids to give it a deep glimmer, then holographic silver Cher in size #4 in the center to give it that harlequin/oil slick look. Hyperdimeeensionaaaallll!
