I have been sooo extremely busy with uni lately, and have had hardly any time to post, so I thought I would make an update about my photography assignment I have been working on. We weren't given many specifications, so we could basically choose our own theme and do what we wanted, which was nice for a change :)

Of course I wanted mine to be related to makeup, and here is what I came up with:

The theme is basically something like... My Perception of Beauty :)

I posted some of these makeup pictures on Specktra and was thinking of making tutorials on the most liked ones. Good or bad idea?? Let me know what you think :)

Hot Pink Smoke

Hey guys! This is a look I did for a contest on youtube where we had to use hot pink, gunmetal grey/silver and/or black. I was inspired by a look Juderivera had done a while back, and this is what I came up with :)

I used:
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil- Milk
  • 120 Palette- Hot pink, Pinky-purple
  • NYX Eyeshadow- Black
  • Naked Pigment- #IV-04 (shimmery pink/purple-ish glitter)
  • Rimmel Kohl Eyeliner- Black
  • Sugarbaby Pink Blink Eyeshadow (lower lashline over black eyeliner)
  • Bourjois Mascara
  • Bourjois Blush- #34 Rose D'or
  • Lips- Covergirl Nude Shine lipstick with Covergirl Slaphappy Amazemint lipgloss (3rd pic)
  • - Combination of a few OCC Lip Tars I made (2nd and last pic)
Please leave feedback :) Thanks for looking!

Blackened Violet

This is a look I did on the weekend before I did makeup for a friend of mine. I really like the way it turned out. A rather easy look, but I love it. I think gold over purple looks beautiful and that was the main idea I had in mind at the time.

Here's what I used:
  • Covergirl Trublend foundation
  • Covergirl Trublend Concealor
  • Australis Ready Set Go Translucent Powder
  • Bourjois Blush #16 Rose
  • Mac Mineralize Blush Duo- Moon River
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil- Milk
  • Mac Violet Pigment
  • NYX Black Eyeshadow
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil- Black Bean
  • Naked Pigment #IV-04 (gold)
  • Bourjois Liner Effect Mascara
So I went and did the makeup for a friends brother's wedding. She was a bridesmaid and I also did makeup for her mum. Everything went well except I forgot to take photos :(
Thanks for looking!!
