Prom makeup tutorial! – 2 lip options.

Published March 8, 2014 by majormakeupmadness

Hey guys, So I couldn’t decide whether to do a colourful spring tutorial, or a prom tutorial. But as me and my friends have been scouting around for dresses recently I thought this was more relevant. Despite my prom not being til late june, I know some peoples are as early as april, so I thought it would be a good time to do one.

For this tutorial ive included 2 options, the eyes aren’t colourful so I though youcould get away with red lips or a soft pink. Id personally go for the pink, but each to their own. Here’s the 2 looks:

Look 1

Look 1

Look 2

Look 2

Both looks are exactly the same apart from the lips, so lets get started!

1) After doing your base and eyebrows, prime your eyelids. Make sure you use a long-lasting primer. SAM_6570 2) Next apply a pearl-finish ivory colour across your entire eyelid. SAM_6578 3) Next apply a warm matte brown in your crease and blend. SAM_65864) Next apply a bright gold underneath your lashline. I applied quite a lot but go with the amount you’re comfortable with.SAM_6594 5) Next apply a shimmery white eyeliner in your inner corner. This really brightens up your eye, and if you dont do this step usually- you should! I think it’s universally flattering. SAM_6596 6) For my top lashline I draw a medium-thickness line across my line and get thinner towards my inner corner. If you want to wing the liner out, go ahead. But winged liner isn’t flattering on me personally. For the waterline, use a gold eyeliner. I didn’t have a gold liner so I used white then put the same gold eyeshadow that we just used, and patted that on  top carefully. SAM_66007) Next curl your lashes and apply 2 coats of black mascara to your top and bottom lashes. Afterall, A girls gotta have her mascara! SAM_66048) Next  apply long fake eyelashes to my top eyelashes. I use black eyelash glue, however its quite fiddly so if you’re new to false eyelashes I suggest you use a clear glue so you can tell if you got it everywhere! SAM_66079) Next contour your face with a matte bronzer. Please, please, PLEASE do not use an orange-toned bronzer. It will make a classy look appear tacky and unflattering. SAM_660910) Next apply a blush which looks natural with your skin tone, for me its a light peach. Here’s what id recommend:

.Fair skin- matte earthy brown

.Light skin- matte peach

.Medium skin- matte coral or bronze

.Dark skin- matte muted plum SAM_6611 11) If going for look 1, line your lips with a nude lipliner (and slightly exaggerate your lips if needed) and then apply a lipgloss slightly lighter than your natural lip colour.SAM_6623SAM_6627 12) For look 2, use a matte red lipstick/lip crayon and apply to your lips.SAM_6617SAM_6613   Those are the finished looks! I hope i’ve helped you out if you’e looking for a prom look. Oh course, this isn’t restricted to prom, it could be a going out look or Im just wearing it normally today!

Pick Me up Pink- A makeup tutorial! (Featuring the Naked 3 palette)

Published January 12, 2014 by majormakeupmadness

Hey guys,

So happy 2014…doesn’t feel any different does it? I’m still getting over the fact that its not the end of the year anymore. A whole 12 months left of 2014, it seems a little daunting.

So recently ive been boring about my makeup, maybe that’s a mini resolution for this year. Branch out into different shades of makeup shades. It sounds strange but I quite fancy getting a blue lipstick..weird I know…

Pinks can sometimes make your eye area look really red, however light pinks look really feminine and pretty, and can sometimes make you look younger.

Anyway on with the tutorial- here’s the finished look: Image



So lets start!

1) first prime your eyelids and apply a cream eyeshadow. I pretty much always use a champagne colour as it can go under anything. Image

2) Next apply a pinky-champagne to the inner third of your eye. (‘Dust’ from Naked 3)Image

3) Ok this shadow is not from the naked palette, its an MUA eyeshadow. Apply a medium pink to the rest of your eye. Image

4) Next apply a matte pink-brown to your crease and blend upwards towards your brow. (‘Nooner’ from Naked 3)Image

5) Next apply a shimmery pink to your crease and blend. (‘Buzz’ from Naked 3). Then apply a light ivory to your browbone as a highlight. (‘Strange’ from Naked 3)Image

6) Next apply black liquid liner to your top lashline. The black makes a nice contrast with the pink… AND black goes with everything. Image

7) Next I apply a purple eyeliner to my waterline. SHOCKER- IM NOT USING BLACK ON MY WATERLINE, SOMEONE CALL THE COPS.



8) Next curl your lashes and apply mascara. Image

9) I was almost going to skip the lashes, but come on, its the weekend…  So I applied black lash glue to my t-mart lashes and popped them on.


10) Next I contour and highlight my face. Image

11) Next I apply light pink blush to the apples of my cheeks for that ‘doll’ look. Image

12) Next I apply pink lipliner and a pinky nude lipstick. And here’s the finished look! Image
