I’m pretty sure I’ve not done one of these for ages so having a long weekend seemed like the perfect excuse! Unless it completely passed you by, it was Easter Sunday yesterday so I looked on Google and Pinterest for an Easter inspired makeup tutorial to try out!
I thought I’d brighten up my blog with a little bit of colour!
Well as promised, now I have some beautiful Halloween-y colours, I thought I’d attempt a makeup look with a Hallowe’en theme!
I’m excited to try out my new palette and as it comes with a handy guide on how to do different smoky eyes, I thought I’d try out a couple of looks from it!
So remember when I said I really wanted to do a green eyeshadow tutorial? It turns out I don’t really have any green eyeshadows, oops!! It does mean I’ll have to go shopping for some though which is such a shame 😛
Anyway, I found a brilliant substitute for now, so I’m going to attempt a blue eyeshadow look I found
So whilst looking for a new tutorial to copy, (I was aiming for a green eyeshadow look, but I’ll cover that another time) I stumbled across this beauty tip.
So today I have to wait in for the nice Anglian man to fix the window lock, so while I’m waiting, (any time between 8am and 5pm!) I’m going to attempt to follow a tutorial for a gold eye look!
As I mentioned in my smoky eye look post, I really need to practice applying eyeliner (liquid and gel) to my top lash line and also the flick/wing at the end. I do often cheat and use Kohl liner first to make the line, then draw over it with gel or liquid. Does anyone else do that too or are you all awesome eyeliner experts? 😀 I’ve found some different tutorials which I’m going to attempt to copy and see which ones are easy or difficult to follow.
So as promised, I’ve just finished my first attempt at recreating a make-up tutorial I found on Pinterest. I wanted to do this because there are so many tutorials out there and a lot of the vidoes/blog/photos assume that we know all the terms and have all the right brushes and kit etc. I find that I use a lot of baby wipes/make-up remover when I’m trying a new look as it always goes a bit awry, but no one really shows that part or the hours of practice it takes. So if you’re not very confident at putting on make-up or it never really looks like it should, don’t worry, you are not alone 🙂
Hey everyone, I’m Closingwinter (a random name given to me when logging on to my Xbox for the first time and it’s now firmly stuck!) I wanted to start a blog so I have somewhere to share my journeys and a place to meet like-minded people. I’m currently learning how to do make-up properly (for my own personal interest) so I’ll be sharing links of tutorials I found helpful and also attempting to recreate them and posting the results. I’ll also be sharing what make-up I have and what I’m coveting.
