Get ready with me- winter smokey eye 19/12/2014

Published December 19, 2014 by majormakeupmadness

Hey guys,

So guess who’s really bad with consistent posting? Yep, me.

You know when life suddenly engulfs you, and you feel like you have no time? I’ve had a serious case of that over the last month. And especially for blog posts, I need a good 2 hours just doing the makeup and getting the pictures, and if im going to all that effort to get ready, I feel i should go out. And when do I get the time… Never!

But yeah, I’ve mainly been busy with school. That’s kind of what you get with taking Maths, Biology, Physics and Chemistry for A-level. Woops.

But anyway, today i went out to see some friends and exchange presents, so I felt like getting all glammed up.

Here’s the ‘no makeup photo’  *shudders* SAM_7677

Mmmm the sexiness of undereye circles….

1) First I apply foundation to my face and neck, followed by a mountain of concealer under my eyes, and powder to set it all.

2) Next I fill in my eyebrow with powder. I really need to do my eyebrows, they’re a bit dysfunctional at the moment. My apologizes.

SAM_7689

3) Next I apply a primer, then a paint pot over the top. The primer is to help the eyeshadow stay on, and the paintpot provides an opaque base so the shadows appear more vibrant.

I also apply a pearl eyeshadow stick to my inner corner to make me look more awake, and to lighten up the whore makeup that is soon to follow…

SAM_7699

4) Next I apply a dark brown to my crease and outer corner, and bring this down to the outer third of my lower lashline. What a mouthful. SAM_7707

5)I then apply a lighter, metallic taupe on my lid in all the areas where there’s no colour.SAM_7709

6) Next I apply a matte, cream colour under my brow as a highlight shade. SAM_7711

7) Next I draw a thin line of black liquid liner along my upper lash line. I bring the line all the way into my inner corner.SAM_7714

8) Next I apply black eyeliner to my waterline. Because yano, that’s UNEXPECTED OF ME.SAM_7716

9) Next I apply mascara, and my favourite, lashes! However I don’t look particularly enthusiastic here. Im internally smiling, trust me. 🙂

I just love how in the background, there’s a picture of my cat and a poster of curve transformations.

SAM_7718

10) Next I apply matte bronzer to contour my face. I apply it: below my cheekbones, along my temples, down the sides of my nose, and below my chin.

I also apply matte pink blush to my cheeks and sweep backwards.SAM_7727

11) Next I overdraw my lips with a mate pink lipliner. I fill in my lips with the lipliner too. SAM_7731

12) Whilst I think matte lips photograph really well, I find them so uncomfortable, so I apply lipstick over the top.

It’s a moisturing lipstick from clinique which i apply and blend in with my finger.

Prom get ready with me 26/06/14

Published June 27, 2014 by majormakeupmadness

Hey guys,

I appologize for not posting in forever, long story short I had lots of exams and have really bad anxiety, so I had about a month of no sleep. But the exams are over now and im gradually dealing with anxiety.

Now for the exciting stuff, yesterday I had my prom. And whilst prom is often built up to be more than it is, I enjoyed getting ready and 4 hours with new and old friends at prom.

As always, I’ll post the finished makeup look first. SAM_7149

Now to start with no makeup!

Image

Foundation (believe it or not I tried not to over-do it with foundation).

 

Image

Concealer, under my eyes and a bit on my cheeks so ‘blank out’ my skin colour so I could add in colour later with bronzer and blush.

 

Image

 

Translucent Powder

Image

 

Eyebrow wax,powder and setting gel.  This is a monumental moment because I actually like how my eyebrows look here.Image

Eye primer

Image

 

All that glitters eyeshadow all over the lid and on my lower lashline.Image

Woodwinked in the crease.

Image

 

Satin taupe in the outer crease and lid. I also put it on the outer half of my lower lashline.Image

 

Browbone highlight with Brule.   *unexpected lighting change*Image

 

Now for an inner corner highlight!Image

Now for liquid liner on my top lashline and black gel liner on my waterline (Because yano apparantly I cant do anything different with eyeliner).

Image

 

Next for my favourite part, Mascara and eyelashes. I can even tell you how much I love Ardell demi wispie lashes.

Image

Bronzer time.

Image

Neext I apllied a darker contour colour and placed it under my cheekbones and under my chin (because I dont recommended double chins for prom).

Image

Now for a bit of matte coral blush on the apples of my cheeks. I blend it back into the contour so it all blends into eachother.

Image

All thats left is lipstick. Im not the biggest fan of lipgloss so I skipped on that. Image

For my hair, I curled it in sections and back-combed the hair surrounding my face. I then used a ton of hairspray, potentially enough to create another ozone layer.

Image

 

I promised to show what I was wearing in an earlier blog posted when I briefly talked about prom. I had a bit of an adventure finding dresses. The one im wearing was actually my third prom dress. The first I saw in person but they didnt have my size so I ordered it online (it was by Jane Norman by the way). The next I got from Victorias dress, £25 shipping (I almost died when I saw that) and £70 for a custom made dress which was completely different from the picture and made me look like an obese fairy it was this one > http://www.victoriasdress.co.uk/a-line-high-neck-sleeveless-tulle-party-dresses-with-ruffles-fj921.html

In a third attempt for a prom dress, I went shopping in person and despite it not being very prom-like I bought a flamingo dress by the brand Henry Holland.

So here are some pictures I took before I went to prom:

SAM_7161

SAM_71591Dress- Henry Holland   £45   (Size 18 if anyone was wondering…)
