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 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?

Lots of Love,
Hello lovely people. 😀
Not sure about other countries, but here in South Africa we are now at the hardest part of the year, exams and studying which lasts all day and for those who can manage, it lasts practically the whole night too. 📚😐
Today I’m going to do a review on the makeup I did a weekend ago. Very simple yet elegant! 👸🏼
Since it was a night function and the dress was kind of silver, I opted for a subtle black and silver smokey eye and then included a bold red lip to finish off…
Products I used-
•MAC studio fix in NC35
•LA Girl beauty brick blush in the Glow palette
•Stila all day liquid lipstick
•Flormar rotating mascara
•Flormar liquid liner pen.
•Eyeshadows- I mixed some of my MAC as well as another eyeshadow palette I got from dubai.
This beauty didn’t need anything extra, not even lashes. She’s a natural, the makeup just enhanced her stunning features. 😘
It’s always a pleasure to work with sweet clients who put their full trust into your hands. ❤️

Hi All! 😁
So it’s been a hectic week, I’ve been celebrating Eid, and went to a small town where I didn’t have any wifi to post or to check posts. So that explains why I’ve been so MIA.
I then came back and had to attend a function the next day. So I took my time and did my makeup and dressed for the occasion.
South Africa is really beautiful around this time, it’s pretty hot and sometimes if we’re lucky, it rains so we can cool off!
Moving along to my makeup. I did a blue and gold smokey eye which matched my clothing. I don’t usually go dark on my eyes because my eyes are really small.
For the above look, I used-
MAC studio sculpt foundation in NC42
For the blue eyeshadow I used the creative glamour shimmer palette.
For the gold I used the graftobian mini luster shimmer pot.
I then used the Flormar black liner to finish off my look.
I used the Flormar rotating mascara.
I also used the LA girl blush bricks as a blusher which you won’t be able to see in the above picture.
All these products are available online, however if you would like to know where else they are available, Drop a comment below and I will be sure to give you all the details.
In order to achieve the very angled cat eye look, you can use tape, that’s how I do it or you could invest in some shadow shields, I can’t really comment on the shadow shields as I haven’t tried it out yet, but I can confirm that using tape is a much cheaper alternative which works wonders.
What do you think of this look?
Let me know if you have any questions or queries.
