Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner by Urban Decay

midnight cowboy

Hello lovelies! Here we have the Urban Decay Heavy Metal eyeliner in ‘Midnignt cowboy’. Urban Decay glitter eyeliners are my go to eyeliners for a glittery eye look, although I usually end up using gold & silver most of the time. You can pair it with loose glitter for that amped up shiny look or you can use it on it’s own over any eyeshadow. Best part is that it’s already got a gluey formula so you don’t need glue separately. They have a range of awesome colours. A must have in every makeup lovers kit! 👍🏼

Midnight Cowboy by Urban Decay's Heavy Metal glitter Liners

 

Who has the time to mix glue and glitter and apply it with a seperate taklon eye brush? It’s just too much work and fussy! I adore the fact that it has a liquid liner’s applicator. You can control how much glitter you actually want on your eyes without going overboard. The heavy metal range retails in Sephora  and the Urban Decay website for $20.

(P.S. Apologies, I haven’t had a chance to take a picture whenever I have used this liner on my eyes but I shall make it a point to insert one soon!)

Blue eye makeup using Accessorize Bejewelled eyeshadow palette!

IMG_3446

Hello lovelies!

Hope you’re all having a fab day so far! 😊  I mostly used the Huda beauty Rose gold palette & the Accessorize Bejewelled palette to achieve this look. And for those who didn’t know, Accessorize have some amazingly pigmented eyeshadow palettes. I currently own 3 and they’ve never let me know. Hope you like this look! 💙

This look wasn’t inspired by anything in particular but this blue taupey colour in the Accessorize palette was so unique that I couldn’t wait to try it out so I just sat down on my makeup chair and just started blending and I was really pleased with how it all came together in the end 🙂

In the pursuit of perfection..

Hello lovelies! Happy Thursday 😊

Hope everyone’s having a nice day so far. We are constantly trying to perfect ourselves in the pursuit of making everything perfect. But in the process we lose so much valuable time. Seize the moment and just do what you have to do. Don’t let those nagging & doubtful thoughts take over and ruin your momentum. Just go for it!

A step towards progress is far enriching than a step towards perfection 😊

Great Gatsby inspired makeup

IMG_3662

Hello loves!

This look was inspired by the movie The Great Gatsby (which is a great movie by the way!). I just really love the 20’s era and the whole allure of that generation. Some see those times as turbulent and unstable and I do agree to some extent. We have come a long way since then but speaking purely from beauty and makeup perspective I feel the 20’s were so mysterious and hauntingly beautiful!

 

 

For this look I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay matte palette for the eyes and the Zoeva Cocoablend palette to darken the edges.
