MOTD: Emilia Clarke Inspired

I have been lusting over this gorgeous makeup for a very long time and I’d always wanted to try it. Seeing as I’d just received the NYX white liquid liner from the USA, I thought it was the perfect time to give it a go and spread some love for my Khaleesi. Now I will preface this post by saying that white liner is much more unforgiving than black liner and I think it will take me a bit of time to get used to doing it but I will still share my attempts haha.

This is the look that I was inspired by:

eyeliner (1)

So here is my attempt at this look:

For the eyes, I used Shiro Cosmetics Alpaca Picnic from the New Leaf collection, I’ll be writing a review of the collection in the next week or two. I blended it in with Shiro Cosmetics Little Bird and a few medium brown eyeshadows. I used Too Faced’s Marzipan from the Chocolate Bar Palette to highlight the inner third of the eye. As I mentioned earlier, I used NYX White Liquid Liner to line my eyes. Initially, I drew quite a thin line on my lid and then when the white drowned out my lashes, I applied falsies and it completely covered the line and this is where I really went wrong haha. I tried my best to draw a line again beside the lashes but even though I moved the lashes out of the way, they still managed to get some eye liner on them. I had to do two layers of liner to make it very opaque and one eye had a more opaque wing than the other. Hopefully my next attempt will be more successful!

MOTD: Graphic Liner!

Over the last few days I’ve been totally inspired by Val Garland and I really wanted to try to recreate one of her looks. I had a really touch time choosing because she has produced some amazing work so I think I’ll be doing some more of her looks in the future but for today, I will be trying to recreate this one:

I’ve been wanting to do some sort of graphic liner look and Val Garland has done some amazing work with liners and I was so in love with this photo. It is definitely harder to do than I first thought. You have to make straight lines in a curved area. I tried my best and here is what mine turned out like:

The lines are a bit squiggly in the centre and I can only blame poor control of my eyeliner for that. I think this might be easier to recreate on someone else’s face than your own but it can definitely be done. I wish I’d added more to the top of the wing because I can see now how curved the top looks in these photos haha. Ah well. You have to start somewhere!IMG_1319

I like these side pictures better because they show the liner better.
