Decades Past – 70s Inspired Makeup

The 70’s is where my interest starts to fade, probably why this has taken me so long to continue on with in the series. I say inspired because although ‘Sun Kissed’ looks were popular in the decade its not entirely era specific. So onto the video!

Lolita Inspired Look For Fashion Addict

full face 3

I got the opportunity to do a tutorial on any type of look I wanted for Fashion Addict. I chose a Lolita style which is something that I had been wanting to do for a while. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!

The products I chose for this look were supplied by Fashion Addict and are as follows:

Exhibit Ultimate Eye Shadow Palette (Bright’s) $19.95

Exhibit Eye lining Pencil (White) $10.95

BYS Smudge proof Waterproof Eyeliner $4.95

Turquoise Glitter False Eyelashes $6.95

Cover Girl Lip Colour (Smoother, Pink Satin) $5.00

I am also wearing BYS Eye Contact Lenses in Purple

 

I thought I’d add a couple of swatches of the products for you to see.

 

First up is the eye shadow palette that I’m probably impressed with most. Its full of fun colours that I can see me getting a lot of use out of!

The lighter matte colours are slightly powdery/chalky but I no problem making them work.

The next swatch is of the white eye pencil, liquid liner and lipstick.

and these are the lashes

Generally I use Duo Adhesive as I find its easier to use than most glues but for the tutorial I used the glue included and I have to say it stuck really well. The texture of the glue was different than what I am used to, kind of stringy and completely clear but it also stuck pretty much immediately where as with duo you have to wait for it to ‘set’.

Finally, the contactsbys-eye-contact-lenses-purple

I’d like to state that  I haven’t worn coloured contacts in a very long time. I was expecting to have a whole lot more trouble getting them in than I did, the first eye they went in almost immediately then the second eye was a tad more difficult but once they were in they were fine. I love how they make my eye’s look.

Now onto the actual tutorial, hope you like it! ( I just re-uploaded it with much better audio)

Hair Tutorial- Oscars Inspired Messy Up-do / Bun for day or night

http://www.youtube.com/user/Madamebfatale

During the awards season I noticed a few messy up-do’s. This is my version of it.

This can easily be worn day or night and is best achieved with dirty hair, (as with most up-do’s). I would recommend  using a hairspray to finish, I just seem to be losing everything lately!

This style can be as neat or as messy as you would like and is a great hairstyle to try if you don’t have much time or need to wash your hair but want a ‘pulled together’ look.

If you don’t have hair extensions to add volume to your do you can easily use a rolled up stocking with the toe cut out and thread your ponytail through it. Or you can use a rat.

The makeup worn in this video is the Napoleon Perdis Walter Runway Inspired look.

The shine spray I used was by Evo that was sent to me, I do have to say its lovely. It smells like watermelon candy!

Benefit Smokin’ Eyes palette

They say,

"Benefit Smokin’ Eyes is a complete brow and eye kit to create a sexy, smoky professional look. Each kit contains eye bright, three eye shadows in pink, pewter and deep charcoal, liner, shaping wax, a fluff shadow / hard angle brush, tiny tweezers and an illustrated lesson."

 

image I say,

Retailing at $68(AUD) this nifty little palette contains not only all you need to create that smouldering smokey eye but is also versatile enough for many other looks. I was originally planning on creating a smokey eye with the palette, but then I realised that since it already contains instructions to in a cute booklet I might as well show you that it can be used for other looks too.

 
Both the eyebright and pencil liner can be used as base shadows or the original intended use as a highlight and liner. The shadows can be used all together to create a smokey eye or individually to create other looks. Having added the brow wax, ‘tweezies’ and dual ended applicator this is also a great idea if you are staying overnight somewhere or travelling. All else you would need would be a multi-purpose lip and cheek product, such a poise-tint, mascara and maybe a gloss or a balm.

 

Here is the tutorial I created with this palette, hope you like it!
