Rewind: My Favourite Makeup Looks

Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

Today I wanted to have a little look back at some of my most favourite makeup looks! I’ve done two 100 Days of Makeup challenges and so, as you can imagine, I’ve created quite a few different makeup looks throughout my time on social media. I wanted to see what I liked best to see if I could incorporate it into future looks and see if it inspires me to get back into creating fresh, new looks!

Pandora Christmas 2016 Collections + Wishlist

Hey guys!

Because I’m lucky enough to work for Pandora, I get to play with a lot of the new release items prior to their launch and so I’ve had a lot of these products in my wishlist for a long time and I’ve been very eager to share all of the items that you might be able to pick up for yourself or a loved one this holiday season. I’m going to give a brief overview of the collections that have released for the holiday season and then share my wishlist and even the pieces that I’ve created with some of the new items! I hope that you enjoy!

MOTD: Cry Baby

Hey guys!

Today I’m going to be showing you a look that I teased a little bit on my Instagram. I don’t know if I have talked about this here on my blog before but I adore Melanie Martinez. I think that she is a fantastic musician and her first album, Cry Baby, was released fairly recently. With the release of her new album, she collaborated with Lime Crime to create a lipstick to help celebrate and I fell in love with the promo image so I thought that I would try to recreate it to the best of my ability! I hope that you enjoy!

This photo was me trying to recreate the pose but no one can be Melanie. I kind of wish that I had a split wig that looked like her hair because I’ve always admired her hair.

I also edited on the tear drops because that stuff never translates well when I create it. So I cheated a little haha.

Naturally, I also took about a thousand photos.

NYX FACE Awards: Mermaids Mermen

Hey guys!

I’m a little late with this post, I didn’t have a whole lot of time in the break to do much as far as ‘creative’ makeup goes so I wasn’t able to get this up on time but I have it here now and I hope that you enjoy!

pink-divider-no-background-md

So the theme of this challenge was Mermaids and Mermen and I did think about possibly doing a merman makeup look but then I had some other ideas and yeah. I actually was set on doing something completely different to what I ended up with! Today, I will be sharing with you my Futuristic – Galaxy Mermaid.

18

When I originally thought about it, I wanted to do a galaxy pattern on my forehead or around my eyes like a bit of a mask and incorporate bubble stars around my head but then I kinda felt like it had been done before so I thought, what about a mermaid from the future, a world where technology has really taken over and I thought it would be cool to do something natural in an unnatural setting. Well as natural as a mermaid can be, anyway. I don’t know if this is a totally original idea, I’m sure someone has thought about it before. I was heavily inspired by the Monster High doll Elle Eedee. She’s a robot and she’s going to be in the new Boo York Boo York movie and she’s definitely my favourite of the new dolls. I was even considering drawing on her little power button that sits between her eyebrows but I didn’t want to make a robot mermaid look so I stayed away from that.

215

So for the eyes, I went a little bit out of my comfort zone but still not very far. Honestly, I’d really like to do something really really wild but I get so nervous that I’ll just destroy what I’ve created so I don’t stray too far out of what I know that I’m capable of. I did a sort of halo eye look. I’m still not too certain about what qualifies as a halo eye but you’ll know when you see it. I just kept building shadows on top of each other, starting with the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, a few Inglot eyeshadows and Ice Queen from Makeup Geek.

20

I still added dots that are meant to represent stars in my dark purple eyeshadow. I wanted a little galaxy flavour haha. And a line of white liner that runs from my water line out to a wing for the ‘Milky Way’ haha. In the centre of my lid I used NYX roll on shimmer in Platinum to make my eyelids pop and sparkle. I also used it on my inner corner, there was so much glitter going on. In the future, glitter will always be on trend.

19

It doesn’t show up much in the photos but I do have some purple side burns because I tried to contour with purple and it basically looked like a line of zinc had been drawn on my face and I couldn’t blend it out for the life of me but it didn’t really hinder any photos so I suppose it wasn’t a total failure.

17

I think that in this world, humans know about the mermaids because it’s hard to hide anything with people recording everything that they see and documenting life with such ease. With the world forever changing and creatures forever adapting, merfolk can now switch between their fishy tail and a nice set of legs so that they can live in either environment. You wouldn’t be able to tell who’s a merperson either because everyone has gone all Capitol and everyone wears crazy makeup and dresses up because everyone is creative and likes to express themselves.

22

I hope that you enjoyed this post and hopefully with the next challenge, I can really push myself to be as creative as possible. I hope that you have a fantastic day!

Review: BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Palette + Swatches

Hey guys!

When I was first properly getting into makeup, this was the palette that I lusted over the most. It was cheap and I probably could have afforded it but I wasn’t earning my own money when I first started. I saw that this palette was going for only $10US on the BH Cosmetics website and I thought I’d better just buy it because I’ve always wanted it and I really had nothing to lose.

The palette looks gorgeous. I love that all of the baked eyeshadows look like little planets. I also love all of the names. It is not a secret that I really love space and space related things. This palette was just screaming at me and I just needed it in my hot little hands.

Here are the swatches:

I do understand that these are out of order but I have all of the names written there so that you can follow it easily and can refer back to the palette to see what the shades look like.

The only colour that was disappointing was Meteor. I got almost no pigmentation out of it. All of these were swatched dry and as most people know, baked shadows can be used wet or dry. If applied wet, you get better pigmentation. I haven’t yet tried these out went but I am looking forward to doing so and hopefully getting more use out of Meteor because at the moment, it looks like it is just a shimmery topper shade.

My favourite shades are Milky Way, Cosmic, Mercury, Saturn, and Prometheus. I think all of the shades are gorgeous and I’m so happy to have it. For a palette so cheap, I am pretty impressed with the quality and I can totally forgive Meteor for not really being up to standard but of course it might be my own fault because I haven’t tested it wet yet.

I hope that you are all enjoying your day!
