Halloween - Glowing goddess - Tips for an easy look

10.16.2014

What is more fun than Halloween? Here are some of my favourite tips for an easy to do golden goddess look.


TIP #1 : 

Highlighting key points on your face such as your eyebrows, cheekbones, collar bones, etc, will really change your entire look.


TIP #2: Dab gold shimmer on to your lips to create a golden lip colour



TIP#3 : You can also add glitter to your hair by hairspraying first and dabbing glitter on



TIP #4 : Contour! Make sure to contour strongly as a gold can make all of your features mash together.


Lastly: Just have fun with it!! It doesn't have to be perfect by any means. I was really just doing a test run with my little sister when I was doing this post. Make sure to check back for a couple more looks in the next couple of weeks as we figure out what we're going to be for Halloween!




Concrete Jungle - NYC with Revlon

10.05.2014

Hi everyone! Long time no chat! I've come back with a quick and easy makeup post using a couple of Revlon products perfect for my favourite concrete jungle New York.

Check out the CONTEST details at the bottom to find out how you can win the products in this post!!



STEP ONE: EYES - "the window to the soul"

I used four products on the eyes. First a simple white and black to create a little definition



FIRST - Put "OYSTER" all over lid


SECOND - Blend "CHARCOAL" in an outer V


Next I used the Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black



THIRD - Extend eyeliner a bit past the natural eye shape




That's the hardest part done!! Don't forget to tightline by using the same Revlon Colorstay inside the eyelid as well as topping it off with mascara! (Revlon Bold lacquer is the one in my kit)


The last part is a stay all day red lip stain. There's no better way to make a statement than a red lip!


Finish up with some elongating nude nails and your all set.



Here's my final look:






Here's how to win the following:

Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks - Oyster
Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks - Charcoal
Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - Black
Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara - Blackest Black
Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain - New York Scene

I love this sleek palette. I think that it's by far my favourite palette by sleek. It has a lot of wearable colours as well as colours for nights out. The shadows are all really great and have great colour payoff. I would definitely put this on my list of things to check out when abroad. I got mine at Boots in London.
