Video: Cheryl Halloween X Factor Makeup

I’m not 100% happy with this video, but seeing as though I’ve been MIA on YouTube for a couple of weeks I thought I’d do a double upload this week! My camera wasn’t loving the black and white split background or the pattern wallpaper, so I apologise for the iffy focus and colour in some parts.

This look is perfect for pretty much any eye colour, but will really accentuate green eyes as the purple will really contrast with them. If you wanted to you cold pair this with a nude lip for a slightly more subtle look.

4 Step Winged Liner

I get asked a lot how I get my winged liner so pointed. Believe me, it ain’t easy. I’ve been practising for a long time and when I apply my liner I’m still always as close as I can get to the mirror. If I don’t like it I’ll take it off and start again – no concealer, no cotton buds – just time and patience.

A while back I wrote a post for Tales of a Pale Face about how to wear colour which included a liner tutorial. The images on Kat’s blog are bigger and with the format there’s more detailed instructions, but here is the 4 step tutorial I put together for Instagram. I hope you like it and find it helpful!
