MAKEUP MONDAY 05: The beauty of eyeshadow.

Hey hey my beauty babes!

I am literally buzzing about this post because I feel like I am on my way to mastering eyeshadow! I am no pro of course and to be honest I am lacking some serious tools and brushes in the beauty department. My collection is close to basic in terms of blenders and applicators.

That just make me more pleased that I was able to create this makeup look yesterday!

I have first blended orange and pink tones into the upper eyelid, before cut creasing THE HELL out of it with some concealer. I then applied some blue tones over the concealed area gradually getting lighter towards the middle. This is the first time I’ve done anything like this so I was super happy with how I did!

I also have a brand new appreciation for the skill that goes into makeup artistry and I hope I will be as good as some of the MUA’s I admire one day!

I kept it nude with the lipstick and added some matching lip gloss to give me a little shine. I obviously had to throw on a blue dress to match!

Of course as there is with anything, I can see room for improvement. But for my first full attempt I think it went surprisingly well!

What do you think of this weeks makeup Monday?

MAKEUP MONDAY 04: Fruit Salad

HEYYYYY TO ALL MY BEAUTIFUL FOLLOWERS! And hey if you’re new to my blog! I am feeling super happy this week and I think it is because for what seems like the first time in my life, everything is falling into place!

Today I introduce my fruit salad makeup look. And I’m not talking about a bowl of healthy treats, I’m talking about these sweets of course:

So if you didn’t know, now ya know! And if you did know, how good do the taste 😍!

This makeup makes me happy, because it’s vibrant, it matches my complexion, it’s warm and it reminds me of sugar so ya know winning all round! Did you notice my lips are two different shades? It’s pretty funny because to create the bottom shade I used some of the orange eyeshadow over the lipstick I had on πŸ˜‚! I didn’t have the shade I wanted in an actual lipstick and I’m so happy with it because it made the original lipstick into more of a matte finish which is beaut!

I used this Makeup Revolution Palette on my eyes. I literally love their makeup range because having a makeup hobby can actually become really expensive. So I just think they are wonderful to charge so little for products that are so good! Here are the shades I used:

I just love these colours as you can probably tell because I’ve done a similar look in one of my other makeup Monday posts!

I really enjoyed creating this look and sharing it with you guys so let me know what you think of it?

Have you ever done anything weird like putting eyeshadow on your lips? πŸ‘€ Let me know!

MAKEUP MONDAY 03: Mermaid πŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Today I am sharing with you my Mermaid Makeup Look!

I’ve got to be honest folks. I’m not 100% pleased with it as a whole. I just feel like I was kind of having a bad makeup/hair day and it didn’t quite live up to my expectations! I thought I would share it with you anyway because there are still some aspects of the look that I do like!

I like the mix of purple, blue and green. I feel like it really does look mermaidy (lol well that word is made up for sure).

I added some gold glitter to the lids to make everything a bit more magical and I think that these colours compliment my hazel eyes.

I was playing around with an app called musically and I came across this beautiful sparkly filter. This blog post has actually made me like the look more as a whole now I’ve reviewed the photographs and thought about it a little 😁! That’s just one of the things I love about blogging. It makes you reflect!

What do you guys think?

I would love to know what other colours or makeup looks you would like to see me try!?

It would mean the world to me if you could follow me if you don’t already! Also my Instagram is @lollyhm.fashion if you’re particularly interested in my photographs!

Makeup Monday 02: Sunset

Hey everyone! I have been working hard on improving my makeup game lately and I’m so pleased because I can actually see my hard work starting to pay off!

Because my last look was so cold I decided to contrast with some warmth this time and took inspiration from the sunset!

What do you think!?

The main feature of this look is the eyes! It’s my favourite part of my makeup routine. I used the Jolie Beauty, Luxe Glitz Palette on my eyes. Along with some black eyeshadow, black pencil eyeliner and black liquid eyeliner.

Here’s a closer look!

I worked really hard on the blending and I am extremely pleased with the results, as you can’t really tell where the pink ends and the more orangey tones begin!

I’m writing about what I used for my lips in a separate blog post tomorrow so look out for that if you’re interested.

I also realised that I had been keeping my eyeshadow too low on the eyelid. Now I am starting to push colour up further towards my brows I really feel like it is making a bigger impact.

I used some copper gold glitter from the Jolie Beauty palette to make the inter corners of my eyes look pretty 🀩!

I’d love to know what you think of this weeks look, I had so much fun doing it!

Lots of Love

Makeup Monday 01: Ocean Vibes πŸŒŠ

Happy Monday People!

Well it’s a happy Monday for me anyway because I work Tuesday-Thursday haha!

So today I will be sharing with you my makeup look of the week! I tend to shy away from the colder shades in my eyeshadow palette, but lately I have been challenging myself to be more creative and step outside of my comfy neutral box!

I actually think these shades compliment my hair colour somehow! I honestly felt like a mermaid all day.

Moving shot πŸ‘‹πŸ» why not! I started by layering the lighter blues in This Palette all over the eye lid. I guess it’s more of a beauty box than a palette. My husband bought me this years ago! Although it looks a little bit childish and it’s got a very small price tag it is absolutely amazing!

As you can tell it is extremely pigmented for the price of Β£20 for the whole set! But I will do another review entirely for that because I would be here all day!

Once I got done layering lighter tones, I focused some darker shades at the corners working them around the lid until I could see a contrast between light and dark. I added a turquoise colour to the bottom eyelid and hey presto!

I finished off the look by applying some beautiful silver glitter from my Jolie Beauty Luxe Palette , some black eyeliner and some beaut false eyelashes, which I will also do a separate review of in a later post!

What do you think? Would you consider adding more blue to your next makeup look?
