My Current Weekend Makeup

I haven’t done a beauty post in a while so I thought I would show you a makeup look I’ve been loving recently using my new Stila Eyes Are The Window palette which I was given by my friends for my birthday. I realise now that this eye look is quite similar to the one I’ve already done – Copper Evening Make Up – but I used different products and it is a little more dramatic.

I actually really like this eye look because it is an easy way to wear the recent pink eye shadow trend, which I found was a bit scary at first but once I figured out how to get it into my everyday makeup, I really warmed to it! I now wear this look most weekends and I can’t get enough of pink eye shadow.img_0129


To prime my face I used the L’Oreal Infallible Mattifying primer which is great at keeping my makeup on all day and makes my foundation apply really easily and evenly.

I then used my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to apply my Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation which I am really liking at the moment. It is very buildable so I can have it high or low coverage depending on what I want on the day but it smells like watermelon which I am not a huge fan of but I’m sure lots of other people would like it.

Lastly I used the Rimmel Stay Matte powder to set my base.img_0170-edit img_9917-editEyebrows

Next I filled in my eyebrows because I find it easier than doing it after my eye shadow.

I started by brushing them against the grain using an eyebrow brush from Boots, then I filled them in with the Mac eye shadow in the shade Charcoal Brown using the Real techniques brow brush. First I draw a line along the base of my brow, emphasising the arch, then I blend it up into the rest of my brow.

I then set them in place with the Rimmel Brow This Way eyebrow gel in the shade 003-Dark Brown.img_0177-edit img_9939-editEye shadowimg_0181-editimg_0185-edit

First I primed my eyelids with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion which is amazing at preventing creasing and keeping it in place all day.

First I applied a bit of ‘Puppy’, a matte grey/brown colour in the crease of my eye using the deluxe crease brush to contour my eyes.img_9974-edit

I then packed on the shade ‘Jezebel’ which is a beautiful pinky/coral shimmer all over my lid with the base shadow brush and blended it towards my crease.img_9986-edit

After that I darkened my crease by adding a bit of the purple shimmer shade ‘Barefoot’, again, using the crease brush.img_0004-edit

I wanted to make the look more dramatic so I added some of the amazing, rich plum shade ‘Pigalle’ to the outer third using a dense Urban Decay brush then blended out the edges.img_0011-edit

After that, I applied ‘Kitten’, a lovely pink champagne shimmer, to the inner third of my lid to open my eye up a bit and brighten up the look. I also used the super pigmented white shade ‘Chinois’ to highlight under my brow bone and in my inner corner.img_0037-edit

To finish it off, I concealed under my eyes using the Rimmel Wake Up concealer then went back in with ‘Barefoot’ under my eyes using the accent brush.img_0060-edit img_0072-edit


I used my contouring brush from the Real Techniques Bold Metals range (which I love by the way) and the contour colour from the Rimmel Kate Moss Sculpting Palette in the shade Coral Glow to contour my cheek bones.

I then applied the blush shade from the palette to my cheeks using my new brush from My Kit Co.

To finish it off, I highlighted my cheek bones using a really nice shade from a Revolution palette which has now been discontinued.img_0193-edit img_0088-edit img_0096-editFinishing touches

I don’t know why, but mascara is always the last thing I do when I do my makeup and at the moment I have been using the Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect mascara which I love because it is super lengthening and holds a curl for a really long time.

I then finished the look with my Clinique Colour Pop lipstick in the shade Nude Pop.img_0195-edit img_0105-editimg_0130 img_0131
