Eyes and Lips #1

Recently I have been absolutely loving wearing this make-up look, so what better thing to do at a time like this, than to share it with you guys?!
Just a little side note here, please do excuse the filthy packaging!


 1. So the very first step to this is to prime the lids in some way, I just applied a tiny bit of my Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation, this does a wonderful job of neutralising any redness or discolouration of the lids, I also find that any eye-shadow sticks beautifully to it, ensuring that the look lasts all day long. 

2. I then take an old flat eye shadow-brush which I normally have lying around in my stash, to apply the first pale gold/champagne-y shade of my Estee Lauder Duo in 'Raisins' over the entire lid. 

3.The next step is to take a blending brush, to apply the next colour, which is a sort of gorgeous burgundy, with a little mix of purple-y pink shade, I like to take this little by little, to build the colour up to the intensity that I like without any risk of going too over board. I also applied a bit of this shade to my lower lash line, which just makes this whole look appear so much more polished, which you'll definitely see at the end.
You can always intensify the look further by adding a little extra touch of matte black to the outer corners, ensuring that its blended well with no harsh edges.

4. Next I applied the shade Foxy, which is the first colour in the Naked 2 Palette, this is a lovely pale yellowy skin toned shadow, just below my brow bone, I find that by doing this, you can make the over all eye area look a lot cleaner and brighter. Its amazing what a difference this simple step makes.

5. Now to make my eyes look both, more wide awake and bolder, by adding a bit of my Loreal Super Liner Perfect Slim in Intense Black, just on my upper lash line, I do like to ensure that there's a little flick at the outer corners, but I find it sooo hard to get both eyes to turn out the same, does anyone else have this problem??!

6. This is by far my favourite step of any make-up look... the lippy of course! Its the Rimmel Apocalips in the shade Luna, (I think I may have a slight obsession with orange lips at the moment, you just cant beat them).

So here's the finished look;

PS, I know that my pupils look quite large and honestly a little cray, I'm Type 1 Diabetic and had an annual eye screening appointment to go to this morning, I got home and honestly it seemed that it was taking hours for my pupils to get back to normal, I just couldn't wait, I really wanted to get another post up for you guys, I hope you don't mind and also that you enjoyed this little read:)
