New Year’s Eve Make Up πŸ”΄βš«οΈπŸ”΅

Hi All 😘 

For my last blog post of 2016. I decided to go for my personal favorite look! 

➑️ Gold glitter cut crease with bright red lips πŸ’‹

This look is always a winner, especially if you want to steal the show at a New Year’s Eve party πŸŽ‰ 

Learn to do this eye by following the below instructions πŸ˜„ 

Products used- 
* NYX eyeshadow primer 

* Graftobian gold glitter in a pot

* Graftobian magic set 

* Essence liquid liner 

* Eylure lashes (any type that you prefer) 

* MAC paint pot in ‘paintery’ 

* Morphe 35O palette or swiitch beauty 35O palette. 

* MAC foiled eyeshadow in ‘joy toy’ 

* Any really bright red lipstick/lipliner of your choice. (I used the NYX liquid suede in the colour ‘kitten heels’ 

Method- 
1. Start off by priming the eye with the eyeshadow primer. πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨

2. Take the finest brush you have and start making a fine line in the cut crease, choose a deep brown to do this. 

3. Take a lighter brown and start blending over the line you made, this makes it look more natural. 

4. Start by cleaning off the area just below the line that you made using the MAC paint pot, covering the full eye. πŸ‘

5. Then take your MAC foiled shadow and apply it to the eye, by this you are leaving a goldish undertone. (If you want a deeper gold look, you are welcome to use something else) πŸ’«

6. With another brush, take the magic set and put it on the eye, while immediately adding the glitter before it dries. 😍 ✨✨

7. Complete the look by adding a thin black line, or make it thicker if that’s what you prefer. πŸ–€

8. Lastly add the lashes to the eye! This gives it a defined look. πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ

For the lips all you have to do is line your lips and then add the red colour of your choice! πŸ’‹

And … within minutes you have a NYE’s look! πŸ’πŸΌ 

Happy new year to each and every one of you!! ❀ 

Stay safeπŸ–€

Cut crease with a touch of glitter βœ¨βœ¨

Hello lovely people ☺️ 

So it’s that time of the year again where I’ve gotta juggle between assignments, exams as well as practicing my makeup skills.  πŸ’…πŸ»

But in the midst of it all… I’m happiest when I’m doing some makeup.  πŸ˜‹

I do it because it takes my mind off the usual routine of life. It’s a hobby and passion which I thoroughly enjoy!

Here’s some eye makeup that I did a few days ago:

Glitter Gold Eye β˜ΊοΈ

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!

Subtle Bridal Makeup Look. πŸ‘°πŸ»

Hi Beauties.  πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ

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. β˜€οΈ
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?

Lots of Love,

Spring Time Inspired Eye πŸŒΈπŸƒ

All rights to this image reserved to shadesofbeauty

 Hi Everyone 😊 

So spring has come and it’s time for bright colours, so why not take the chance and do bright makeup to match it? πŸ”΄πŸ”΅

Today I did a green and gold eye! I did this look specifically because of the season, and also because green and gold compliment each other so well! These two colours put together look great on any skin tone! πŸŒΌπŸƒ

To achieve the true colour to the eye, remember to first apply a white base or primer. This ensures that the colour that is seen is the colour that will be on the eye, whereas when the eyeshadows are applied on the skin, it sometimes loses the vibrancy and could blend in with the skin colour. 

I didn’t want to do a very loud eye, so I decided to do the normal, prepping and priming to the eye and then doing the makeup. 

In the above picture I used MAC eyeshadows, MAC liquid liner, MAC foundation, NYX primer, Flormar Rotating Mascara. 

The eyeshadows are great, very pigmented and soft when applied to the eyes, the liquid liner has glitter, finishing off this look perfectly. The primer allows the eyeshadows to stay on the eyes without any fall out, also allowing it to last hours on the eye without losing colour or creasing. The mascara is heaven sent, if you are a regular follower of my blog, you would now know that I’m a major fan of the rotating mascara. I’m so obsessed with how it gives the lashes a great boost in length and darkens it without the lumps that mascara usually leaves. 

I usually always start with the outward part of the eye, then gently fixing a colour to the middle and therefore continuing by completing the look. As you can see, I did green on the outer and top part of the eye, blending gold into the middle and taking it a bit higher. Something extremely different to what I usually try out. 

Remember, don’t be shy to play with colour, you never know how it could turn out and to your surprise it could be something that could actually work out for you. πŸ’ 

Any other spring looks you would like to know about? Or anything else that you would like me to blog about, let me know In the comments below.

Arabian Inspired Eye Makeup πŸͺ

Hello All. 😘 as I was going through images of eye makeup on google I came across the Arabian styled makeup and I think it’s pretty cool. It gives the eye a gorgeous look. It’s usually very loud colours, and mainly finished off with a thick black line. 

I decided to do this look, but went abit more subtle than what the Arabians use. 😍 I did a black eyeshadow in a ‘V’ at the corner of the eyes and extended it abit on the top to make the long line effect. I went with a gold eyeshadow on the full eye and a little silver in tear duct corner. I then blended πŸ˜›

Finished off the look with a black liner and added mascara to the lashes. 
What do you think about this look? Would you be daring  enough to do this look? Let me know in the comments below. 😘

Products used- 

β€’ A palette I bought overseas that had all the above colours. 

β€’ NYX eye primer 

β€’ Flormar rotating mascara (it’s amazing). 

β€’ Essence black liner. 

~ And that’s how easy it is. πŸ˜‰

Love,

Fairy Dust Eyes βœ¨πŸ‘ΌπŸ»

Hi Ladies…  

Here’s an eye I did today.. I went with very subtle colours on the eye, as I wanted to achieve the whole fairy colour look. I used all shimmers from my LA Girl palettes; namely ultra, and neons 😍. I love these palettes as you know the nude palette is generally compared to the naked urban decay palette. 
However when I found out that the LA Girl brand was going on sale, and I compared prices it worked out exceptionally cheap! It’s a great buy for anyone who’s looking to start out in makeup. (Beginners) 
I didn’t finish the eye off with a black line though. I quickly experimented on my gorgeous client and these were the fabulous results that I achieved. 
   

What do you all think? Would you try this look? 

Love, 

Salmaa πŸ’‹
