I thought I’d keep it pretty simple creating a sort of smokey eye look focusing on the colour Fly Dragon Fly from the Chinadoll Palette.
The main colour I’m going to be using for this look is Fly Dragon Fly – the fiery red – so it’s a perfect look for those of you with green eyes as the reddy / orangey tones will really make your eye colour stand out!
I love Deborah Lippmann nail varnishes, sadly I still don’t own any! But I saw a lovely manicure on Facebook the other day done by her team at the Badgley Mischka Autumn 2012 show. I know it’s a jumping the gun a bit, but it’s still cold here in England and the design cheered me up and took me right back to Christmas! Here’s the actual Deborah Lippmann design.
I wish I could offer some makeup tips on how to get the tips straight, but all I can say is just keep practising! I don’t use manicure strips as they tend to leave marks in the varnish or don’t sit flush to the nail, leaving an uneven line. Make sure you’ve got plenty of time and keep at it, you’ll get there in the end.
All this week has been Winter Varsity at university and I’ve been getting into the spirit with some black and gold nails! Showing my support in a beauty related way. I used Chanel Le Vernis in Peridot for the gold colour and Nails Inc Nail Varnish in Black Taxi for the tips.
Classic combo of black and gold!
A very simple yet effective look! Tomorrow I will be doing a contouring/skin sketching tutorial, so keep an eye out
The lovely people at Sugarpill included a sample of their Chromalust Loose Pigment in Goldilux with my recent order. I’ve been meaning to try it out for ages in an eye look, so I thought I’d go for the classic combination of purple and gold using all Sugarpill products – Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette and Sugarpill Chromalust Loose Pigment in Goldilux.
I was in the mood for experimenting the other day, so I came up with this very subtle gold look! I usually just go for a neutral smokey eye then black eyeliner to finish, play it safe, but I thought I best make use of all the make up I’ve acquired over Christmas. I picked a product at random to base the look on, so here it is, my eye look based on Nymph!
Nymph by Lime Crime is a loose powder eyeshadow, it’s very easy to layer and blend to achieve the look you want. It’s a creamy ivory colour with a gold shine to it – lovely on it’s own or with other colours. I decided to use different gold tones to make this eye look, but with Nymph as the main colour all over the lid and towards the brow bone.
