OH BABY HARAJUKU !

My niece was asking me what eyemakeup would she wear and she sent me a picture of the dress she was going to wear. I would usually advice someone to wear neutral shades browns, blacks, greys, champagnes nothing too crazy I suppose all depends on how you apply it too…blend blend blend all makeup artist and makeup guru will advice you to do just that.

This is the dress correct me if I’m wrong but to me this looks like baby pink but my niece said its nude ooooppsss am I colour blind or what. So I went through my eyeshadow palettes looked for baby pink shades can’t find a baby pink but there was HARAJUKU shade from my  Gwen Stefani palette so I used that one.

STARK -for my base colour helps to blend all colours easier 

ZONE & PUNK- for definition  since I will do a cut crease not a very harsh one though.

HARAJUKU ,BABY & STEADY-3 shimmer shades used but the main player is HARAJUKU 

The eyeliner is by MAYBELLINE gel liner in black. 

Let me guys know what you think of this makeup look?

Would you try wearing some pink shimmer as well?

Hugs & kisses

GWEN STEFANI is on SPOTLIGHT!!!

It’s becoming my favourite eyeshadow base it’s inexpensive and it does the job it might not last 24 hours like other primers would claim but it does last for hours.

My W7 concealer in medium deep applied all over my eyelid as eyeshadow primer.

For this look I’m using Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette 

  1. Stark is my first transition colour
  2. Zone for a bit of depth 
  3. Punk outer and inner corner part of my lid
  4. Pop placed in the middle of the lid its a SPOTLIGHT look I wanted to create  i think it ended up more like a Halo though
  5. Blonde used to highlight the innermost corner of my eyes

    For my brows NYX tame & Frame in Espresso and Chocolate  the darker shade is used for more definition. 

    Rimmel Scandaleyes in black for my waterline and tight lining my top lashes.

    The maybelline colossal extreme volume in black waterproof.  It can get very clumpy but i like it for my very short eyelashes I don’t think it’s suitable for people with very long eyelashes.

    This is one my favourite eyelashes the shape and length is flattering for my eye shape.

    So here is the SPOTLIGHT eyemakeup using Gwen Stefani palette. Moving on to my face products. 

    Maybelline fit me in 220 applied all over my face the I used the 355 to contour I find it a bit harder to contour with liquid but I will still try to use this foundation maybe mix it with my lighter one next time.

    SLEEK sugar blush palette uses Turbinadp and Demerara since they are Matte finish.

    MAXFACTOR lip liner in  brown n nude & mauve moment.  Very good formula glides perfectly doesn’t tug and good staying power beautiful shades one my favourites. 

    RCMA no color powder this is what I use all the time to set my makeup I even dust a small amount over when I apply concealer on my eyelids it makes it easier to blend the eyeshadow. 

    Maybelline super stay 24 hours setting spray. Now it doesn’t last 24 but it did last all day while I was out and about I think I even prefer this over my URBAN DECAY all nightet setting spray.  Great product and I’m sure I will purchase this again.

    I’m neutral today what harm I might do a colourful look tomorrow again. 

    Makeup wear it your way💋

    Can you spot where BECCA Champagne Pop by Jaclyn Hill is???

    I always enjoyed reading blogs about makeup products looking at pictures and colour swatches. Watching you tube videos on how to highlight & contour and how to do the perfect wing liner. A you  tuber named Jaclyn Hill took highlighting to a different level I watch her videos by the way and she is very very good at what she does. The picture above shows a swatch of 3 highlighters, 3 single eyeshadows and an eyeshadow palette. My question is can you guess which one is Jaclyn Hill’s Champagne pop by BECCA which on its first day of launching was sold out straight away.

    I love shimmery makeup products in general even when I swatch makeup products I always tend to fall in love with something very shimmery now that’s just me I still love MATTES though.

    Now going back to highlighters I myself can’t really wear them well specially on my cheek area because I definitely don’t want to highlight any large pores I own. When I use highlighters I would mainly apply them on my cupids bow , brow bone , bridge of my nose (made up one) 😘 on my cheeks i do it ever so lightly.  But yeah some girls can ROCK the highlighting game me nah not really I still love them though.

    Moving  on…..


    Tadaahh here are the products and truth be told I reach for the cheapest one to wear myself nothing against BECCA Jaclyn Hill Champagne pop lovers.. I love this highlighter too just want to let others know that you have other options as well. Now they say its universally flattering maybe that us true. Maybe it does look well on most girls. It does go on nicely very buttery and the pigmentation is just amazing having said that the cheaper alternative also performs well.  

    And if you think you can’t wear eyeshadows as highlighters you’re wrong if you can apply it on your eyes then surely you can use it on your cheeks, brow bone & cupids bow only be careful what shade to use as Highlighter make sure it compliments your skin tones 😘😘

    Tell me which of the swatched shades above is your most preferred?.

    Makeup wear it your way😘
