Hi all! I’m so sorry for not posting in all these months, it’s been super hectic. However I do have a review for you all that I did today 😘
So I came across this amazing #swiitchmix and thought that I had to buy one! What attracted me towards this product is that the size is absolutely perfect and it’s extremely versatile. As you see in the below image, when I hold the bottom part, it fits almost perfectly into my hand which works wonders, so instead of leaving the house with foundation, lipstick and colour corrector marks all over my hands, this spares me that extra time and also saving me all the looks people give me as if I’ve just finished an art project of some sort 😂. I also found that this product fits into my makeup kit without taking much space, in fact I usually put my contour comet between the #SwiitchMix and add it to my kit. I would recommend this to any of you who leave the house in a rush with realizing later on that your favorite white shirts are marked in foundation and hundreds of other colours, not withstanding all the makeup artists out there, in fact I recommend this to ALL of you ❤️
I purchased this on Swiitchbeauty which is a South African online store!
Hi all! 😘
Sooo… I’ve been playing around with makeup looks often and I came across something very different. It was a light cut crease with a full on gold glitter!
I used the Revlon Photoready Eye art in the color Topaz Twinkle.
I also used the brown eyeshadow which I found in my NYX love in Paris eyeshadow palette for the cut crease.
This is a very simple yet elegant look, which can definitely be done for any night out or function.
Simply end off the look with a red lip!
Hope the holidays were amazing!!
Since early Jan, I was back at work and studies have started again.
Today I’m doing a review on the new MAC Faerie Whispers foiled shadow that I recently purchased.
These shadows come in 8 colors, all of which are based on fairy colours, which are pinks, purples, bronzes etc.
I bought the colour ‘Joy Toy’ which was the only one that actually grabbed my attention. It’s a shimmery pink colour which could pass as champagne in different lighting.
It goes for R280 per shadow and comes in a 3g container, which is extremely strong.
The reason why I bought this shadow was because it was foiled and it’s very difficult to find them over here in South Africa, and buying them online works out too expensive due to the rand-dollar exchange.
Below I have two pics on which I’ve done two different types of eye makeup to show you how it looks when applied with MAC fix it spray, and without.
This product was worth every cent as there wasn’t fall out and a little goes a very long way! I just gently dabbed a bit on my brush and applied it to the eye 😍 and this was the results!!
As you can see without the Mac fix it spray, it’s pinkish, and with it it has a goldish tone to it!
Hope this review helped you decide whether or not you would purchase it.
Hope you all are enjoying the final stretch of 2015. It’s been pretty hot over here in South Africa, with temperatures reaching up to 39 degrees Celsius. ☀️
Today I’ve done a look that can be easily done on brides, it’s more of a natural look, with a touch of smoke to the ends of the eyes. This look will go as a dramatic bridal look, and once the ends are abit lightened, it goes perfectly for a natural bridal look. What I Used-
For the face- MAC studio fix liquid foundation.
Eyes- Prepped the eye with the NYX eye primer, then I used the Diamond Glow by Maybelline in number 6. I used a waterproof based eyeliner to complete the look, and the MUD mascara for the lashes.
Please note- in most of my images, I do not use fake lashes, it’s the actual lashes of the person once I’ve used mascara.
For the rest of the face, (which is cropped out) I used the MAC mineralize blush in the colour ‘Cheeky Bronze’ and I completed it with adding the STILA all day liquid lipstick in Beso. (both examples of these can be found in my previous blogposts)
When I have the permission to add full pictures up of a person, I will definitely do so.
What are your comments on this look? Would this be something you would go for on your wedding day?
Do any of you think I should start an Instagram account for shadesofbeauty?
