Almost Neon Makeup Tutorial- photo’s, products, tutorial & more!

 

limecrime makeup tutorial

Back with another super bright almost neon look for you all today! Makeupnet sent me a couple of new Limecrime products (they are the distributors for the brand in Australia now) to play around with and I kind of felt the need to go all out. Partly because I’ve been catching up on RuPaul’s Drag Race (love it!) and partly because I know that Mint to be Lipstick isn’t going to be for everyone. In my mind if you are brave enough to wear this lovely shade on your lips your also probably confident enough to pull off the rest of the look too. Plus I just love bright makeup! But I have to say this is one of those looks that you can take one feature and leave the rest kind of ‘blank’ if you aren’t feeling so daring.

 

Products-

(Off camera)

Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation (do not understand why people don’t like this, I love the finish it gives!), Illamasqua Disobey as contour (I use this all the time), Mac Mineralise Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle.

(On Camera)

Limecrime Eyeshadow Helper (awesome! nothing usually compares to TFSI but this does, I like the thicker texture)

Limecrime Magic Eye Dusts in Pink Poodle, Circus Girl, Royal Purple (not telling the name till the comps over!), Nymph and Troubadour.

MAC Paint Stick in Pure White

White eyeliner pencil (not sure which one I picked up, sorry!

Limecrime Mint to be (brows and lips)

Limecrime Loop-de-loop (mainly on outer corners of lips, they are a bit wonky though)

BYS Liquid Liner (such a good buy!)

eBay cheap lashes (top and bottom)

Duo Glue

Now onto the fun part, the video.

In the video I mention that you can win the mystery royal purple shadow, all you have to do is go to Makeupnet and find it in the Limecrime eye shadow section, go back to the video and comment the name of the colour! Its that simple. Australian subscribers only and it ends 19th March 2012. Winners will be selected randomly from the correct answers!

Onto some pictures of the finished look. (I look a little drunk in the eye shot but you can see what’s going on better)

Disclosure- Makeupnet sent me some products for the look but I’m not being compensated and I wouldn’t feature them if I didn’t like to wear them myself!

Medusa’s Makeup Lip Gloss in Smooch–A Review

Here is another bargain buy from the Medusa brand ( actually everything they make seem to be a bargain!) the lip glosses. I have for review the gloss in Smooch that retails at $8.99 (AUD).medusa lip gloss smooch

Its a stunning rose/mauve with gold shimmer, with a great colour payoff light and non sticky in texture and smells like strawberry candy. Smooch hasn’t dried out my lips and looks great over just a nude lip liner.

Wear wise I would say that its similar many other glosses, I’ve never had a problem with re-applying gloss, and it probably lasts a couple of hours on average (without eating or drinking).

The only downside for some may be the scent but I wouldn’t say that it really lingered too long. Can’t wait to checkout the other colours!

Medusa’s Make Up Waterproof Mascara–Majestic

mascara4The Medusa mascara in Majestic is a fun and easy way to add a pop of colour to your look.
Used on its own for a subtle purple colour or layer over a white lash primer for a really intense look. This will also pump up the volume, so to speak.

The mascara wand itself is a regular sized bushy wand and easily coats all lashes to create an everyday look with a twist. Besides the gorgeous deep purple/plum colour this mascara has the price is awesome at only $8.00 each or $20.00 for three colours (green, purple and blue).mascara1

The only thing that kind of disappointed me was that its waterproof and can be harder to remove. This is a plus as it seriously doesn’t budge but not so great for everyday wear, unless of course this is something that you look for in a mascara.

So if you have been looking for a coloured mascara, or wanting to try one without spending too much money then here is your answer. (Especially if you wanted to try one after the MAC Wonder Woman collection but missed out, wanted something not in a limited edition collection or didn’t want to spend that much!)

Full Sized Brush Set from MakeupNet – A Review

 

all brushes
MakeupNet sent me this nifty little brush set to review. It contains 15 different brushes for eye and face use and I would recommend this set to those trying to start their brush collection.

brushface1Four  of the brushes in the set are for the face. A large powder brush, a blush brush, a small face brush great for highlighting or contouring and a fan brush for light blush or bronzer application, plus a small lip brush. The face brushes aren’t the softest I’ve tried (by no means the roughest either) but they are ok for the price and the real gems in the set are some of the eye brushes.

The eye brushes that I found the most handy are the spooley, eyebrow and lash groomer, small, medium and large shadow brushes, large angled brush, and the eyebrow/ liner brush. There is also a sponge brush (I’ve never liked these for shadow application) and two small brushes that look similar to the lip brush, I’m unsure what these are for exactly but found them great for placing shadow on the lower lash line, waterline or a larger lip brush. The three shadow brushes are great for packing on colour over a small or larger area and the large angled brush us great for crease work. rest brushes
The only two brushes kind of missing in this set in my opinion would be a pointy eyeliner brush and a large fluffy blending brush. Other than that your pretty much set for eye brushes if your a beginner.

The set retails at $25.99 (AUD) and I think is a bargain for 15 brushes (around $1.75 each!), even if I only really love some of them!

I used these brushes in my "Who Said Neutrals Can’t Be Dramatic" Tutorial so you can see how well they work for yourself.


All in all I would say thee are some misses in the set but some hits as well and at this price you really cant go wrong. It even comes in a handy brush roll.
