Pride Makeup 🌈

Hello everyone! I’m back with yet another beauty related post, and this one will be about Pride Month!!! 🌈 Honestly, I couldn’t be more straight haha but this is my way of paying tribute to this month, because I believe that no matter what your sexuality, religion, race, or anything is, everyone should still be treated with love.

I think that even if you do not believe or agree with someone else’s views, you should at least respect them just as others respect your views. I know it is so easy to just stereotype a certain race, or religion, but honestly, if you’re going to be that narrow minded and over generalise everyone with that certain race/religion, you’re really missing out on meeting some incredibly amazing and kind people in this world. And, I feel, there’s no point spending so much of your time hating on another race/religion, which doesn’t help anything in the world.

Anyway, this is just my view on this matter, and I hope you can understand my point of view even if we don’t agree on this issue. SOOOO, let’s move on to the makeup look I did in honour of Pride Month!! 🤗

So, I decided to do rainbow eyes, with silver glitter tears as I thought it’d be a good pop of glitter without adding more colours to the look as it is pretty colourful already haha. I also thought the glitter tears would symbolise, like, happy tears instead of sad tears ✨

I placed all the warm colours on the top lid and the cool colours on the lower lash line, and I thought it was really good contrast altogether. I used a slightly warm medium brown to help to blend all the colours into my crease, which also helped create a transition from all the colours into my skin. I also only decided to tight line my eyes without winged liner (shocker, I know) so that the eyeshadow will be the star of the look 👀

I thought of going with a bold lip for this look, like maybe, black or something? But ultimately decided on a glossy terra cotta-ish nude lip as I thought it complimented the eyes really nicely 💄

I think this look would be great for a festival, or events to support loving one another despite our differences ❤️️ This is a super fun look, and you can switch it up according to how you’d like your makeup, you could swap the colours out and put the cool toned shadows on the top lid and everything!! Ultimately, just do whatever makes you happy as long as you’re doing it with love 😊

Anyway, I’d like to thank you for reading!! I hope you’re having a great week, that you choose to do what makes you happy, and also help make the world a better place in your own unique way 🌏 Thank you so much for reading, I hope to talk to you again soon!

Peach 🍑 + Green 💚 everything

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Hello!! I am back with yet another beauty post. My past week has been pretty crazy, I was working almost everyday and because of some personal reasons, I decided to quit my job 😔

SO, now I finally have time to write a new blog post and this time, I did my take on a mythical fairy, inspired by the colours of my flower crown 👑 It is actually really simple to do this makeup look, feel free to change up the colours and add your own spin on yours! Here’s what I came up with:

I generally wanted a very monochromatic look, however, I decided to add the green on my inner corners and cupids bow as I thought it gave a really nice contrast to the peach on my eyes and cheeks 💚

I also added freckles because I personally feel that freckles give a very innocent vibe and I thought it suited this look perfectly. It’s actually my first time trying out freckles and I really like it!! I used a mixture of brow gel and brow pencil to make my freckles hehe.

I just felt like I needed a break from life. After deciding to quit my job, I was so scared and worried about what would come after that, but I am so relieved that I left because I know I will do well in a better environment. And no matter what job I decide to take up next, I’m still going to chase my dreams!! ✨

I hope everyone has had a better week than I did, but if you didn’t, you managed to get through it!!! Take your time to escape from life once in awhile, as for me, makeup is my escape haha 💅 I’ll see you all next time!!

Burgundy eyes + Black lips 💄

Hello everyone! I’m back with a new post, and this one is beauty related!! Recently, I felt really stuck with my makeup, always doing the same neutral looks. I mean neutral looks are great and all, but it does get a little boring when all the colours you stick to are just browns and champagne.

Recently, I came across an instagram account @junecrees and this picture she posted, where she had maroon on her eyes and a dark purple lip, and that inspired me to come up with a look using my Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick from Colourpop in the shade ‘Friday’. And if you don’t know, the shade ‘Friday’ is just pitch black 💄🖤

I wanted to stick to more purple-y tones, so decided to use the Lorac Pro palette in the crease, and the Jeffree Star Beauty Killer palette mainly to help with blending.

For the lids, I used a Colourpop Super Shock shadow in Sequin, it is so BEAUTIFUL✨. According to colourpop.com, it is a ‘rosy penny copper with mutli-dimensional Ultra-Glitter finish’, and I have to agree. It is so metallic and reflective in real life, it is just gorgeous, and I thought it’d be a great colour to bring back some warmth into my eyes with all the cool tones in the crease!

SO, this is the look I came up with!!

This look is fairly simple, however, it did push me to do a look outside of my comfort zone and I am kinda digging the grungy vibes this look is giving me. I hope this inspires you to try out different makeup looks, because makeup is all about expressing yourself! SO, go ahead and express yourself however way you like, be it through fashion, drawings, you do you ❤️️

Thank you for reading, till next time!!
