Urban Decay “Naked 3” Palette

The “naked 3” palette was in fact my first ever palette and i got it because i had very light pink and purple hair and wanted to do eye makeup that would match it. I thought it was an amazing palette then and I still think that to this day.

The palette comes with 12 different colours, most are soft pinks, greys and browns but there are two highly pigmented shimmer shades , ones called “buzz” and is a lovely pink that isnt too harsh and the other is called “trick”and is a gorgeous copper colour. There are other shimmer shades but all quite muted compered to “trick” and “buzz” witch really stand out.This palette also comes with a double ended brush with a fluffy brush on one side and a compacted flat brush on the other.

I find that all the colours are very easy to control and you can create a very quick look with them. There is also very little fallout and most colours are so soft its very easy to get rid of when there is any.

The brush that comes with the palette is also surprisingly good and could be used for the whole look if wanted. The packaging is very pretty and compact so would be easy to take around if you travel a lot.

In conclusion I really like this palette and cannot find anything I do not like about it, I really recommend getting one if the colours are for you. Thankyou so much for reading X

Huda Textured Rose Gold Palette

I’m going to say straight away, I really really like this palette. The colours are absolutely stunning! and you can really build he colours up witch some people don’t like because they are all quite subtle until you work at them so they are not the most pigment but you wouldn’t think that it had n pigment.

Something that really stood out to me with this palette was how soft the actual shadows are. When i first got this palette i was going to swatch one of the glitter colours and to stop my finger going right through because of the unexpected softness. When you are also getting one of the matte shades on a brush you leave a lot of loose powder in each shadow, because of this you really do get a lot of fallout when applying it.

whenever i have used this palette to do a look for the day i always think at the end that it really did hold its own ans has stayed pretty much exactly how i applied it at the start of the day all day.

It sounds like i do not like this palette but, i honestly do love it and when you are use to it it really is a lovely palette to use but, you really do need to get use to it in my opinion because it is very unlike anything i have used before. A huge positive is that with some eye shadows they all seem to blend out to mostly all look the same but, with this one you really can see the different shades witch i love.

overall this truly is a gorgeous palette witch i know i will be using a lot but, i do think the price point on this is quite high and i would prefer it to be slightly lower just because of the things I have mentioned about the fallout and slight lack of pigment. Anyway I do think of you are a pink lover defiantly get this palette and also if you have a passion for gold. It is stunning!

Thankyou for reading i hope this was helpful X

Kylie Jenner Lip Kit “Dead of Knight”

I am afraid to say that i did jump to conclusions on this brand, I thought that it would be shit and it was just getting lodes of hype because it was Kylie Jenner but I have to say I am actually so impressed with this liquid lipstick. I don’t watch The Kardashians or any of them shows really and have only really been shown a negative side of them but, now I have completely changed my mined after I was given this lipstick as a bday present.

I love a good matte lipstick! I never really wore lippy before they really became big and popular. “Dead of Knight” is actually so a gorgeous its just so deep but, there is one thing that annoys me slightly, the lip liner doesn’t seem to be able to be sharpened even though your meant to put it over your lips, that is going to run out quick and I think that is actually really unfair because that’s going to be gone way before the actual lipstick is. Although I do love this lipstick it dose start to chip and go from your lips much faster than others I have tried, I find myself constantly topping it up on my inner lips witch dose get annoying when your just trying to look mint when out or just strutting around the house. Something I do love about this lipstick is something i think a lot of people do really like in a liquid lipstick and that is that it is not tacky or sticky at all! That is a huge yes to be because i cannot stand the slight stick of a lipstick.

I find myself liking Jeffree stars liquid lipsticks more than Kylie’s, there just so much more long wearing and comfy on your lips, i actually have a review of Jeffree Stars liquid lipstick in “Designer Blood” https://wordpress.com/post/abeautybitch.wordpress.com/444

Over all i really do like this lip kit, but i do not think it is the best and is slightly over priced for what it is and what you get. I really hope you enjoyed this post. Thankyou X

Sculpting your Face and what Works for you

My Horrible Embarrassment

When i first started out doing my makeup I was completely clueless about where to apply a shadow and highlight. I also did not know what colour I should be using. I am incredibly pale myself I should have been using a very cool toned colour to create shadows on my face but, I decided that what I should be using was a shimmering bronzer that looked straight up orange on my paleness. To at salt to the wound I really slapped it on, to the point where powder would fly everywhere when I tried to make it look neat applying it with my huge fluffy brush. At this point you must have realized that i had no idea what I was doing but, know I do and am trying to save people from the same horrible embarrassment i put myself through.

What you should use + My fave products to use

I am ghost pale myself so I have to use very cool toned products on my face and have actually used a highlighting powder as my normal face powder so yeah I am as pale as you can get. So if you are like me my favorite palettes to use are ether the “NYX pro highlight and contour palette”or what i am using and loving at the moment witch is the “Kat Von D shade and light palette” I have also written about this product so if you would like more information heres the link to that blog post https://wordpress.com/post/abeautybitch.wordpress.com/366

If you are of a darker completions you will need to use a more warm toned product. If anyone if having a problem telling if they are warm or cool toned, look at the vanes on your whist or where they are most visible, if your vanes appear blue you are cool toned and if they are more green that means you are more warm. I am sorry I do not have any suggestions of products good for darker completions seeing as i do not use them myself and do not feel right about saying somethings good or bad without trying it out myself.

Brushes + Where to apply

I am a complete Morphe Brushes addicts and cannot get enough of them so I have to recommend them. Good brushes can take your makeup skils to the next level and pretty much all there brush sets will have a good contour brush.

To make your cheekbones look more pronounced apply the shadow just under them in the hollows of your cheeks but not all the way by your mouth. Keep it concentrated to the edges of your face. If you believe you have a prominent forehead and would like to minimize the look of it apply the shadow by your hair line, gradually drawing i down your forehead but of course not all the way down. Also do this at the sides of your forehead to bring it in. If you want to reduce the size of your chin or hide a double all you have to do you have to do is apply some on your jawline adding shadow to parts you want hidden and reduced the most.

I hope this was helpful and shad a little light. Be sure to follow my Instagram and twitter Thankyou X

New Hair + Future Hair

So over many years of dying my hair i have finally gone black and green to my parents disgust, I personally love it but, I also miss my light hair so much and am always tempted to go back. (I had white hair for any years) I plan on having this colour hair for at least 2 months so it has some time to rest and have nothing done to it seeing as it is quite chemically damaged already.

15878473_763465147138750_216045036_o

So this is what my hair is looking like currently, because i had blue in my hair previously i had to bleach part of my hair to try and remove some of the colour witch had stained my hair so i could get the colour i wanted out of the green. I wanted it very vibrant and not dirty at all and i am very happy with how it came out. Seeing as i bleached it i do not want to bleach again straight away (I have now had this hair for 3 weeks) and to be honest i am scared of trying to remove permanent black dye out of my hair.

 

Future Hair Plan

Permanent black hair dye should take me 3 bleaching using volume 40 and i should also weight at least 1 week between bleaching and i will also need to tone my hair also to get platinum blonde hair witch i can start to work with and colour again. After this long and tedious process I will be dying my hair something very different to what i have now.

At my roots traveling partly down the lengths of my hair there will be a very soft lavender, slightly more pink than that actually lavender colour. This will then be leading on to a baby pink witch will continue through the rest of my hair. the reason I have chosen these colours is because blue and pink are not n the same colour palette so they would look slightly off if together, that is why i will be making the lavender rather pink .

I really hope you like my future hair thoughts and what i have going on now. If you were wondering the green i have now is Directions Hair dye in ‘Spring Green” mixed with a very small amount of “lagoon Blue” I have  post written about directions hair dye already if you would like it find out more. https://abeautybitch.wordpress.com/2016/11/19/directions-hair-dye/

Jeffree Stars Liquid Lipstick “Designer Blood”

I have been watching Jeffree Star on his YouTube channel for many years now but to be honest with you I am fairly new to his makeup line but, oh my god this one lipstick has transformed me in to a Star enthusiast!

When i first came across this colour i wasn’t o sure, i felt it was too much like his very popular “Alligator Blood” and that he just brought out one very similar just because he knew it would sell well but, I have now been made to eat my words. This is a totally different colour and oh so beautiful. In its container you cannot see its true self and i don’t even cameras can do it justice! At first it just looked a slightly dirty, deep red but then I watch some swatches of it and I just had to have it. Unseen before to me there was a gorgeous gold tint and glow to it that was just so unexpected and stunning.

The formula, oh my god the formula! Okay so I’ll have to admit I was worried of how it would feel on my lips because I do not know why but my other Jeffree Star liquid lipstick witch was “abused” felt so incredibly thick on my lips and I still do not know why. Everyone raves about how light your lips feel with it on and how pigmented and long lasting it is. Wow do I understand why people are in love with it. I have honestly forgotten I was wearing it at once point and got shocked when i looked in the mirror.

This is a ineradicable liquid lipstick! I cannot be more happy with it and it is so my new favorite, I highly suggest you get this seeing as i cannot find even one down fall of it.  Thankyou for reading and what the lipstick looks like on me will be on my Instagram so please follow and also follow im twitter to know when i have a new post out

 

Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette

As i am falling more and more in love with makeup i am at the same time falling more and more in love with the incredible Kat Von D. This palette has signal handedly taken my contour skills to a whole new level.

I am extremely pale myself and very cool toned so finding a nice cool toned contour palette was a struggle, for a long time i used NYX pro highlight and contour palette but even that was to warm for me (very good though) but, wow this Kat Von D one is just gorgeous! All colours are very cool toned and incredibly easy to control . Tey just create such a perfect natural looking shadow other than an orange streak across your cheek.

katvond_shadelight001

I think this about every single one of Kats products but the packaging to just amazing! I love how unique it is and its attention to detail, as she is a tattoo artist first i think this gives her such a great edge when it comes to packaging. I’ll have to admit that i am someone who will more likely pick a product with amazing ascetics over one without but, i feel like many people are like me in that way so that Kats packaging looks the way it does it must draw more people in. There is such a nice touch that comes with this, its a little instruction card saying where you could apply each shade, dark and light. Its the small things that i think make such a difference and i think it is just such a nice addition to the palette even if you do not need it.

Over all i am just in love! i cannot find any fold with this at all and i will definitely be getting more when i have used this one up, i highly recommend getting one if you are a fellow pale person.

 

Mermaid

So this look is inspired by a beautiful mermaid, To me it is wearable but to many not> wear what you like but just remember to have fun with it and wear it because you like it. So this is the look…

img_1242

I personally loved doing this look! i think it is so much fun and easy to do. You cannot see in this picture but my hair is also blue underneath that is the reason for the blue and purple.

Many people would say that this look isn’t something that is wearable and you could wear on a daily biases, but in my opinion that is ridiculousness, anything that you are wearing is in definition wearable  and what you wear shouldn’t form peoples first opinion of you, but unfortunately that’s the way it is and i am also responsible for doing thatt, but it shouldn’t makeup someone shy away from talking to you. just be happy being you.

Lips

For the lips i used a light, bright blue liquid lipstick from NYX, witch i LOVE and so will be doing a review of soon. I then ombre with a gorges pastel purple lipstick ( i got this lipstick a long time ago and  dont know what it is, but any purple will do). At the top of my lips at the cupid’s bow and at ether sides of the lips i did a thin outline in only them areas with Jeffree Star’s liquid lipstick in “abused” just to add a bit of definition and difference to this look.

Eyes

The eye makeup for this look is also simple using just one makeup palette witch is the Picasso palette by Morphe, yes i know i know i use Morphe in so many looks and i use there brushes everyday, but they are amazing that is why i use them. Anyway, this is how you do it. To stat i use the Kat Von D eye liner to start the wing then i full it with a normal black liquid eye liner to complete the cat eye. Leave the water line with no liner on it so the eyes look wider and not to heavy and dark seeing as we are going for a light magical look. After the liner has dried apply the white shadow from the palette I mentioned before, this is so all the other shadows we are going to put on top blend seamlessly and evenly, the next colour used is the purple, blend this in to your crease and up to the end of the liner, you will then apply the light blue the same as the purple just not as high so the purple is still visible. Next mix the blue and black to make a new colour witch will just be in the crease and closes to the liner (don’t apply to much). Repeat this on the bottom lashes keeping the darker colours only reaching the middle of the eyes. Add mascara or light lashes.

Overall

Of course do your foundation, contour and brows as you would normally. I really hope you enjoyed this look and go follow my Instagram for sneak peaks of what i may do next.

 

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

I love Kat Von D myself, I even watched her show before i even thought about wearing makeup and now i do, I cannot get enough of her! She was the reason why i am really in to an alternative look and have been planning and designing my own tattoos for the future for many years. Even with my love for Kat and her work i am so disappointed with this product!

Thoughts

I love a cat eye and will wear the sharpest, largest wing with every looks. I honestly feel naked without my wings, so i have used a lot of different liners, liquid, pen and gel, it all.

I was so excited when i got this liner and was just praying for it to live up to the hype, but for me it so didn’t. I found that drawing the first line was so dark and so sharp i was amazed but then as i started to do more it just faded drastically and very fast, it became hard to get anything out of it.

I am someone who apples my eyes after foundation, could this have something to do with the decrease in pigment? Hasnt happened before to me but, maybe.

The Brand

I think that the reason I felt so let down was because of my love for all her other products. I respect and love her so much and that may be why i was so disappointed.

I believe it was overly hyped. I guess still a good liner, Very good for drawing the initial lines to mark out where the other liner is going but i think its not great for a full look.

Very sharp at the start but not as dark.

 

Directions Hair Dye

Over many, many years of dying my hair lots of “crazy” colours, I have used lots of different brands and types of hair dye. I have been bleach blonde, red, brown. green, blue, yellow, purple and currently black with blue underneath.

Image result for directions hair dye

After all the stuff i have done to my hair i have found that my favorite brand to use is Directions. It is a semi permanent hair dye with a huge range of colours to choose from ranging from bright and pastel colours to dark and vibrant ones. Without highly bleached hair I find the colour will last for about 2-3 weeks but with bleached damaged hair i have had it last for months at a time without a top up of colour. The reason the colour lasts so much longer on bleached damaged hair is because the hair is much more pours so it almost sucks up the colour so it’ll last a lot longer and can stain the hair, especially with darker more vibrant colours over pastel colours.

If you go to my Instagram you will see some of my resent colours and also some makeup looks i have done.
