Sun and Seas – Makeup tutorial!

Published November 1, 2013 by majormakeupmadness

Hey guys,

I hope you’re all having a fantabulous week so far. So despite the cold, rainy weather here in the UK, I thought id do a brighter makeup tutorial to counteract it!

But just a few updates first:

. Thanks SO much for reading, commenting and following my blog. It makes me so happy to read all the comments and interact with people who share the same love for beauty as me.

. I love doing tutorials and stuff, but I was wondering if any of you had requests for what you’d like to see for future posts?

. And Im really excited becauseon twitter yesterday I won a £150 ELF bundle! Im so excited!!! *mini rave party*

. I also got an instagram recently so you can follow me here >

And also today im going to use my Urban Decay palette which is the same one I used in my Emerald City makeup tutorial:Image

So lets start with the tutorial!

1) Prime your eyes with an eye primer, and this is optional but I apply a waterproof cream shadow to KICK ASS to my oily eyelids which want to ruin my eyeshadows.Image

2) Next I apply the colour ‘Peace’ to my entire eyelid, I even take this down to my inner corner.Image

3) Next I apply ‘Zero’ to the outer third of my eyelid and blend so the blue slowly fades into the black. Image

4) Next I apply ‘Shag’ to my crease. This adds subtle definition and tones the look down ever-so-slightly. Image

5) Next I apply ‘Honey’ to my lower lashline. The warm yellow and the cool blue contrast and make the eyes really stand out. Image

6) I then apply a matte highlight to my browbone (as always). Then I apply black liquid liner to my upper lashline making it gradually thicker towards the outer edge. Image

7) Next im gonna swap my usual black on my waterline for a white eyeliner. Considering we’re already wearing coloured shadows, I wanted to brighten up my eyes with white. Image

8) Next im gonna apply mascara to my eyelashes. As an eyelash clump brings the family closer together. Image

9) Now for my favourite, FLASE EYELASHES. Ive been using the same eyelashes for ages. And im using the same ones now. However I ordered more and got them yesterday, so new lashes will be making appearances. They’re from .Image

10) To finish off the look I apply a warm brown blush and apply a peach tinted lip balm. Image

BB cream 101! why? what? How?

Published May 14, 2012 by majormakeupmadness

Hey guys,

Today im going to give my verdict on BB creams, as well as a little background info.

There are many names people think ‘BB’ stands for, some say ‘blemish balm’ others think ‘beauty base’…. and the list goes on.The first BB cream was made in the 1950’s in germany. It was actually made for protecting the skin after surgery or laser treatments , so the patient could protect their skin and get coverage at the same time.

But they have became more popular in Asia, and since endored by korean celebrites have dramatically increased the amount of BB creams bought. Did you know BB creams make up 13% of the cosmetic market? BB creams have now became more and more popular in Western Markets. To name a few brands stocking them: Maybelline, Clinique, MAC, Garnier, Dior, 17, No7 and many others. And who knows? – maybe BB creams with be an essential to every brands line of makeup soon!

Each BB cream may claim to have different skin benefits, but on the whole they are marketed to be an ‘all in one makeup base’ meaning they are your: sunscreen, primer, moisturiser, concealer AND foundation.  They are also compared to tinted moisturisers a lot as they have a similar ‘light coverage’, some people think they are re-packaged tinted moisturisers. I half-agree with that statement. I have been using the Maybelline BB cream to try it out and it seems good, but I havent noticed any major effects other than getting used to using it over foundation. You apply a BB cream as you would a foundation, they blend really well and leave a ‘fresh-faced’ glow.

Would I recommend BB creams? – Yes, but only if your looking for a light coverage, with an awesome sunscreen 🙂 Image

I hope you now go away with a lil extra info about BB creams!

Hope you guys are having a FABULOUS start to your weeks! 🙂


You Ready For It??? -My Makeup Collection!

Published April 22, 2012 by majormakeupmadness

Ok, so I still havent foun d MY camera, so im using my parents one, it isn’t great, but its better than my ipod or blackberry camera atleast. I personally reading makeup collections posts and videos so I though id do mine. DISCLAIMER: I am in no shape or form bragging about my makeup, I just find these posts interesting to read. I am very grateful for what I have and  have bought everything you see with my own money unless it’s a gift.

So now with the collection! Heres a full veiw of what my storage system looks like. I have clear plastic draws and every draw has 2 pink baskets in to organise my items better (apart from the top draw of each unit). I havent showed everything in their baskets as you cant see all the products sometimes as they are on top of eachother. Im not going to name everything aswell, as i cant remember all the names- I will name most of the products though.ImageThis storage thing of makeup, sits nicely on my desh next to my purfumes and lamp (if your interested in a purfume collection comment below). I keep my brushes on top of my storage, and and have some brushes in a brush belt under my naked palette. I also have a pink basket filled with random tools, leaflets and samples, here a picture.ImageThis pictures not very good, but the basket mainly contains: spare sponges, a victoria jackson makeup how-to booklet, my eyelash curlers, some samples, a colour wheel, leaflets and an empty mac concealer (for back to mac).

Here’s how i organise my brushes. ImageAs mensioned earlier I have a few more brushes in my brush belt but, I dont use them very often. These are the brushes I use the most. My collection mainly consists of: elf, ecotools, superdrug and no 7 brushes. I also have 2 pairs of tweezers here which I think both came from superdrug – Ive had them for about 2 years so I cant remember fully.
