Burgundy?

Hey Beauties…I don’t know what to call this look. It’s a blend of burgundy I guess 😂👌.

Mind the eyebrows 😶😧.

This post will be short n sweet 👄.

Tutorial:

1. Apply concealer to your eyelids and set it with translucent powder.

2. In your crease, thoroughly blend out brown eyeshadow. Apply this shade strictly to your crease.

3. Take maroon eyeshadow and apply this to your eyelids. Blend it out on your eyelid as well as to your crease. 

4. I then took a sort of pink shimmer highlight shade and placed it on the centre of my eyelid. I used this same colour to highlight my inner-corner and brow-bone. It isn’t quite visible, but in person you can see it 😌.

6. Use that same maroon shade and blend it underneath your eye. End the look off with a sharp wingliner and voula 🔥.




I know I don’t post a lot, I basically abandoned my blog but I do plan on making a return 😓. 

Pink Glow!

Ladies and Gents, I present to you a fabulous pink-nudish look 😌.

I’m back with another makeup look; using my Essence Nudes palette, HD palette and this bright-coloured shimmers palette that has no name 💪.

The HD palette are all shimmers except for the black shade, which is a matte. It is a great palette for highlighting.

Let’s get straight into it:



1. I first primed my eyes with concealer and set it with a white powder.

2. From the Essence Nudes palette, I took the two brown matte shades (top row, the 3rd & 4th shade). Tapping the excess powder off my brush, I blended the two thoroughly in my crease.

TIP: The lightest brown of the two, can act as your transitioning shade.

I did not do my eyebrows nor have I put on mascara or eyeliner, simply because I was lazy 😐.

3. I then took a hot pink shade with slight shimmer and packed that on my lid, not going anywhere near my crease. I blended that out. With the brush I used for my crease, I blended the browns with the pink so that no harsh lines were apparent between the two shades.

The browns appear more lighter in real life. I showed which colours I used by labeling the shades with pink blocks.

4. Using my HD palette, I took the first shade (white highlight) and put that on my brow bone as well as the inner corners of my eyes.


5. Mixing the browns from my Essence palette with the pink shade, I blended the two on my lower lash line.


TIP: Wet your brush when applying your highlighter, it makes it more prominant and gives that blinding effect.

Sorry I haven’t been posting a lot. I’m in my final year of highschool and my life has been hella busy lately. Holidays are coming up soon, so I hope to be posting a lot more.

Eyes Lookin’ Snatched

Here is a fabulous eye makeup look that anyone can pull off. It is beautiful and can add that extra bit of oomfff to your look. I did not fleek out my eyebrows for this look, I hope to do a separate tutorial on that. If you on a budget this makeup look is for you as the products are affordable. 

What I used: I used the Essence Nudes eyeshadow palette and Ralo Cosmetics Blusher in the colour Amber.

If you can not find these products in stores then simply purchase colours that are similiar if you want to achieve this exact look. Ralo Cosmetics only retails in South Africa, but there are other brands that do sell this blush in a similiar colour.

To get a sharp eye look, simply place cellotape from the outer corner of your eye, up to the end of your brow.

The order in which I used the colours: 3rd colour from the top (left to right), last shade of the top row, 1st colour from the bottom, blusher in the colour Amber and 2cnd colour from the bottom row.

How I got this look: Firstly I set my cellotape in place. Using  my blending brush, I took a bit of the medium-dark brown colour (dab off the excess) and blended that only into my crease. It’s the third shade from top row.

With the dark brown colour, I blended that on the outer corner and inner corner of my eyes, bringing a little of that into my crease as well. I blended it thoroughly, keeping the centre of my eyelid blank in the process. 

Using the blusher, I took that to my crease as well and blended. I blended all 3 of the colours together so that there aren’t any harsh lines. At this point you won’t really see the brown that was applied first, but it will give an undertone.

The centre of my eyelid that was left open, I filled it with a smokey brown colour and kept it only in that one spot. I dusted it off so that it doesn’t come off as chalky, leaving it faintly on my eyelid.

With the highlight shade, I took quite a bit and only put that on my eyebrow bone. I blended that so it didn’t give a harsh look. I added this to my tear ducts as well, only a little. Topping the look off with a flirty cat eye will add sexiness to the look. 

Note: Prime, prime, prime ! Before I done this look, I used foundation as a primer (it was 1 shade lighter than my skin), then I took the 1st colour (top row)  and put that all over my eyelids lightly. If you medium to dark skinned black eyeliner in your water line will pull the look together👌. If you lighter skinned, I suggest a brown eyeliner. Black eyeliner is fine, but apply lightly.

P.S I will do a tutorial on how I do my cat eye. There will be more make-up tutorials so stay tuned 😌☝.

Makeup Basics

This is a beginners guide to makeup and what you should typically have when starting off on your makeup and beauty journey…

Foundation- ofcourse foundation is the first thing you need to buy. It is the starting point for any makeup look.

Mascara- mascara will be your best friend, it gives your eyelashes great volume and boldness but that’s only if you buy from a good brand ☝.

Eyeliner- if you don’t want to look dead just a bit of eyeliner will wake you up and make your eyes pop. Any cheap eyeliner will do the trick.

Lipgloss/Lipbalm/Lipstick- every girl should have a staple lipstick that gives your lips great colour and moisture, because nobody likes crusty lips. 

Eyebrow Pencil- know your brow shape firstly and then fill it in, brush it to your desire then you are on your way with brows that are on fleeek.

Eye Palette and Brush- just like your go to lipstick, you should always have your go to eye palette. Buy a palette with a range of colours so you can experiment and find your favourite eye look that suits you. A great blending brush will help bring your look together smoothly.

This was just my take on the makeup basics and what you should have starting off. Thanks for reading ❀.
