Hey there! This post title is unusually fitting seeing as it feels like these past few weeks have been a kind of daydream.. and not always a good one. My little sister, Adele, landed herself in hospital, our flights were rescheduled and delayed, we lost our luggage… basically everything that could have gone wrong, did. But I’m back in LA and all is right with my corner of the world. And, as you may have seen on my Instagram, I’ve managed to do some awesome things (ahem, photo shoot) whilst being here and can’t wait to share them with you!
These photos are kind of a link to my last post, shot at a childhood home on the farm. The nostalgia is very real when I’m in Texas. It’s late and we’re going to Disneyland tomorrow- spose I should get some sleep? Updates coming very soon, watch this space for plenty of photos of me with Mickey Mouse ears. Much love xx
After my last post appeared on Instagram I had a couple of requests to do a makeup tutorial on the look I was wearing. Let’s just say that since being in the US, my makeup collection has doubled (thanks Sephora, thanks a lot) and I’ve had the products to switch it up. So here it is- big lashes, big lips.
I kicked it off with my base and half my eye makeup done, because I am scatterbrained and nothing I do makes sense. On my face: Urban Decay makeup foundation, Maybelline concealer, a little bit of pink blush and Rimmel translucent powder. On my eyes: Stila eyeshadow in “Kitten” all over the lid, Maybelline “The Falsies” mascara on top and bottom. Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil in dark brown on the brows.
1. Using your favourite liquid eyeliner, create a thick line across the top lashline. Don’t wing it out, and make it reasonably thick. Apply another coat of mascara for big lashes.
2. For the lips: using a mauve lipliner (I used the Sephora lipliner in Mauve) slightly over-line your natural lips, accentuating your cupid’s bow. I know what you’re thinking- over-lining is that Kylie Jenner thing- but it’s famous for a reason. Just make sure not to over-do it. If the lipliner you’re using isn’t matte, pat some translucent powder over the top.
And that’s it! Relatively simple but so effective. I’ve been wearing it every day. Let me know if you liked this tutorial. And since it’s technically NYE and I won’t be posting until tomorrow- Happy 2015. Thank you all for an incredible year, it’s been one of the best yet.
