New Year’s Eyes

Heyyyy guys!

So I wanted to make this gif tutorial. I’m just testing how does it work and I also want to know what you guys think! The quality is really bad, I know… And there are obviously watermarks from the video edit program I used, but it’s because I didn’t want to spend money on something I wasn’t sure would work, but I’m feeling really positive about this and I think it’s a cool way to write a blog. If this works and you guys like it I will continue posting gifs (and make the quality better), not just makeup tutorials, but all kind of stuff!

Enough talking, lets hop on to the tutorial!

I like watching other people’s makeup tutorials, especially when they are about holidays and other special events, but I often feel like very few would actually have the courage to go out wearing the makeup look. So that is why I like to do really subtle looks  that are easy to create and suit everybody!

Start by tapping on white eye shadow to the whole eyelid and to the brow bone as well. (Ah, I hope the gifs work!!)

Then direct a light eye shadow colour of your choice right to the upper outer corner of your eye in a window wiper motion. Create a soft cat eye like in the gif above. I used the shade “Liar” (shimmery baby pink) from the Naked 3 palette, as usual.

Do the same thing again but with a dark brown or black eye shadow. Don’t blend the colour as much as in the previous step.

After that lightly tap on any kind of loose glitter eye shadow.

I used the one from Gosh, it’s a mixture of gold and silver glitter.

I love lining my eyes and I think lined cat eyes go with every look. I lined my eyes the same way I did in the Autumn Eye Makeup I post, you can go check it out if you’re interested!

And of course the last thing is to curl (optional) your lashes and put on some mascara. If you want to make your eyes stand out even more glue on some fake eyelashes!

Winter Makeup II

Oh hey there beautiful!

I’ve been super busy with all the deadlines at school and Christmas shopping and other stuff like that. I hope you understand, I don’t want to post anything that I haven’t put any time and effort in. I actually made a makeup look a week ago but the pictures were so bad that I decided not to post anything at all. Obviously I could have posted something else instead, but I always take so much time to write these… Even if I would just talk about my day. Oh, and the Finnish weather is driving me crazy as well (I need light to take pictures and here in Finland the sun is shining about 3 to 5 hours per day…)

Okay, this look is really similar to the Winter Makeup I, but there are new techniques etc. and I really think that this is a perfect look for Christmas! And don’t worry, I’ll do something completely different for New Year’s day!

Start by applying eye primer (pictures on the left). Then tap white matte eye shadow to the whole eye lid with a brush (pictures in the middle).  Lastly apply light matte pink eye shadow to the outer corners of your eyelids to create dept to your eyes (pictures on the right).

I used the shade “Limit” from the Naked 3 palette. The main goal is that both of the eye shadows are matte, unlike in the Winter Makeup I, where the eye shadows were shimmery.

This technique will make your life easier. Just tape a piece of masking tape under your eye and start applying black matte eye shadow just like in the picture above and you’ll create a perfect cat eye.

I wanted a bit smokier look so I faded the cat eye a bit and added some of the black eye shadow to the lower outer lash line as well. Oh, and don’t forget to line your water line with a black eyeliner pencil!

After all that I curled my eyelashes, applied mascara and put some fake eyelashes on.

For this look leave out the bronzer and only use blusher! It gives you that “I’ve been outside playing in the snow” look, if that even makes any sense…

And that’s it!

I really love this look. I think it’s really Christmasy! It’s also really easy to create and it works with any lipstick.

Tomorrow I’ll write something as well, not sure what though… You will have to come back tomorrow to find out!

Till then…

Christmas Playlist

Just because it’s December tomorrow I decided to create a Christmas playlist for us all to enjoy. You may not like all of them but they make me feel very christmasy and I hope they do the same to you.

(I probably will add new songs to the playlist trough out December so don’t worry if it seems short!)

Now go get yourself a big cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream and a Christmas hat and enjoy!

Winter Makeup I

Heeeyyy guys!

I haven’t been writing for a while because I’ve been super busy with school… Essays, exams, homework and stuff.

I got really exited on Friday because it was snowing A LOT! CHRISTMAS IS COMING! And that also means that I can take better pictures because the snow outside of my window gives me better lighting. Yay!

I’ll start doing lots of Christmas/winter blog posts as well! Here’s the first one, I hope you guys like it.

I have explained how I do my brow many times before, but I like to change the techniques and I always try to find the best one. Obviously If you already have perfect brows you can skip this step.

I use brown matte eye shadow and a transparent eyebrow fixing gel.

Start from the arch like in the second picture and continue by drawing the outer line like in the third picture. Do short strokes with the brush making it look like hair. Then use what ever is left in the brush to make the lower inner line like in the fourth picture and then fill in the rest of your brow. Finish it up with the fixing gel.

The eye part is really easy in this look! Start by applying eye primer. Then use any white eye shadow and tap it in the center of your eyelid and what ever is left in you finger/brush tap it all over the eyelid.

I used the shade “Liar” from the Naked 3 palette, but you can obviously use anything similar. Apply the shade like in the Paint picture and fade it.

Line your upper waterline with black eyeliner pencil. Then apply any dark eye shadow to create a cat eye and fade it as much as possible. Also apply it on your lower outer lash line.

These fake eyelashes are from Home Bargains and they are SUPER cheap! I also like how light they are. I have cut the one in the picture, because the original one looks way too perfect and it’s a bit too long for my eyes.

Glue them on!

I made the lips by using the same technique I did in the Autumn Lips tutorial. The texture of the lip liner I’m using is a bit like lipstick’s so I only applied that and the shadings are made with dark purple lipstick. Yes. Purple. It’s amazing.

And that’s it!

I skipped all the foundation, contour, etc. steps because they were exactly the same as in my previous makeup tutorial posts, so you can go and check them out.

Halloween Makeup – DIY Wound

Heeeey guys!

I’ve been super busy with school etc. but I had to make at least one Halloween blog post. After all, Halloween is my second favorite holiday after Christmas!

I need sunlight when I take pictures and the Finnish autumn is quite dark. I rushed home from school (sun goes down FAST) and started immediately but the sun had a mind of its own so I’m sorry for the variance of the lighting in the pictures.

I LOOOOVE Halloween so much and it sucks that we don’t really celebrate it here in Finland…  I noticed that the Halloween make up accessories (fake wounds, fake blood etc…) are quite expensive, so I decided to write this. I think it counts as a “last minute costume” as well, because I’m sure you have all that you’ll need already.

You will need:

– Tissue

– fake eyelash glue

– red lipstick

– Brown, black and purple matte eye shadow

– Honey

– Cream textured foundation/concealer

Start by applying the glue the same way I did in the first picture. The point is to leave a clean spot in the middle for the wound.

Then tear a piece of one of the layers of the tissue and glue it on. Make sure that the edges of the paper are glued on smoothly. I added another layer of the tissue on top of the first one but it’s not necessary.

Wait for the glue to dry and then start covering the tissue with foundation or concealer. Try to find a cream textured one because liquid ones will make the tissue wrinkle.

After covering the whole tissue with the foundation/concealer start tapping brown and purple matte eye shadow on.

This is the fun part; cutting the wound! You’ll need scissors like the ones in the picture above to prevent hurting yourself (round tips).

(I’M NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU HAPPEN TO CUT YOURSELF!!)

This is why we didn’t add any glue in the middle. Carefully poke a hole in the paper with the tip of your scissors and then just continue cutting the tissue paper. (Seriously though, be super careful!)

Then colour the inside of the wound with a red lipstick. To give depth add brown and black matte eye shadow as well.

This is something I discovered myself today; FAKE BLOOD MADE WITH HONEY AND LIPSTICK! Yes, honey. How awesome is that?! (P.s. it tasted bad.) Just blend those two together and that’s it.

And there we go!

Autum Eye Makeup II

Heeeey guys!

I couldn’t make only one autumn makeup look so here we go. This one’s for a bit more fancier events. Go check out the first one if you haven’t already; Autumn Eye Makeup I.

Brows, foundation, blusher, contour etc are the same as they were in the first one so I’ll skip those steps and I’ll go straight to the eyes.

The eye shadows are from Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette. If you don’t own this makeup palette you’ll just have to find shades similar to the ones I used.

I added the Paint drawings again to show where to add the eye shadow.

Step One

Tap the shade “Trick” on to the whole eye lid.

Step Two

Add the shade “Liar” on to the hollows of you eye lids.

Step Three

Add the shade “Darkside” the same way as in step two, but cover a smaller area. Also add the shade on to the lower outer corners of your eyes.

Step Four

Tap a light champagne shade in the middle of your eye lid.

(Channel, 82 Émerveillé)

Step Five

Start lining your eyes the same way I did in the first picture. Then just connect the two lines together like in the second picture.

(Easiest way to line your eyes is by using a gel liner and a brush.)

Step Six

Then take a blending brush, dip it into the black gel and add it to the lower outer corners of your eyes. Also add the gel liner on to your upper waterline.

Step Seven

Add your favourite mascara on to the upper and the lower lashes and then glue fake lashes on. Use the black gel liner also to hide the shine from the fake eyelash glue.

VOILÁ!
