Smokey Blood Orange + Giveaway Sneak Peek

Hello dolls, I have a makeup tutorial for you ladies. This week, I created another Smokey Eye Look - "Smokey Blood Orange".


Why smokey look you may ask? I am actually polishing my smokey eye makeup skills. I was once told that the shape of my eye cannot accommodate smokey/cat eye. In the effort of proving the nasty lady ( not mentioning names here) wrong. I am going full fledged in perfecting the smokey eye looks. This is what happens when you walk around makeup aisle without makeup on, people are so judgmental and they think we are ignorant just because they are. They were suppose to help us enhance our beauty and product knowledge.

If I have the time, I really want to do more looks to share with you guys. I am not a social media addict, I still have no Twitter or Snapchat (lol) but every like on the other social medias that I get, just motivates me to do more. I am so blessed to have found ricedolls, is truly a platform to showcase your talent and learn for many other makeup enthusiast out there. If you have not visited them, stop what you are doing right now and head to over to : http://www.ricedolls.com/  and of course come back and check out the rest of my rant here.

If you are someone new to this makeup world, you are not alone and we all came from there to where we are now. You can head over to Youtube and Instagram to get inspired and stay inspired. There is always a beginning / starting point. I would also caution you about addiction issues, once you are on this side of the realm there is no turning back.

Okay now ladies, let's get down to the tutorial part:


They face routine is pretty much the same, just prime you face, eyelids and lips before you start on that perfect canvas, your face. I am keeping the same routine for face priming - Nivea Post Shave Balm & Sephora Primer. These 2 mixed together give me a almost wet/sticky base that makes foundation application effortless. 

I mixed both Mary Kay Timewise Mate Foundation in the shade Bronze 1 and my Holy Grail Foundation Revlon Colorstay. I wanted a medium - full coverage for this look.  I also used the NYX Conceal, Correct & Contour Palette to contour and highlight my face. 



Now for the eyes, I did the same priming routine. If you want to know how to make your pigment give you the color payoff that you well deserve?  Apply a white based primer. I used the NYX Jumbo Eyeliner in the shade Milk. For more details, read my previous blog post. 


To create a good clean outer V line, use tape. I get mine from Mr.DIY. It comes with a dispenser so you don't have to be manually cutting strands of tape. Next, I drew a outer V line using NYX Jumbo Eyeliner in the shade Black Bean. Using a make up brush I blended the color out. I then took Elianto Eye shadow from the Splendor Shadow Series in the shade Thunder Black and blended it in to darken and deepen the outer corners of my crease, with a light hand I dragged in the color just a little inwards at the crease. This softened the defined outer corners.

Now comes the colors, I bought this palette 4 to 5 years ago from a makeup seller via Facebook. I did not know that it was a dupe/alike product then. Jokes aside, the color payout is just brilliant and I truly hope is wont hurt my lids bad in the future (fingers cross). I don't know the make, all that is written over the cove is MAC eye palette (lol).


The 2 main colors used are the Brick/Blood Orange Tone  & the Dark Burgundy Tone. I packed in the Orange shade before blending, like a several times to get the vibrant color to pop. Once satisfied with the intensity of the color I started blending away the harsh lines. 

Next, I took the Burgundy shade and applied that to the crease area. I have hooded lids I din want the scary black and notorious orange shades to transfer when the hooded area touches the rest the of lid area ( hope I make sense ).  

To complete the look I applied my new found favorite false lashes from Shye Lashes in #Demi 120.


And that completes my Smokey Blood Orange Tutorial, have fun trying out this look. Do let me know if you want a specific eye look. I will try my best to do them. Stay tuned for my next blog post.

Before I forget, as promised more details on the giveaway. I want to share with you ladies, some of the things that I love. Here is a sneak peek on brands involved. Giveaway is just a blog post away. 

Stay tuned me loves.

Smokey Rose

Hello Dolls, how are things with you? I have been a little busy in the past weeks, hence my MIA. Well, this has been the longest that I have gone without playing with what I love most...MAKEUP. So here I have for you, my latest smokey eye look; Smokey Rose. I was inspired by the picture below (Burgundy Rose) to create this look. If you are someone who loves roses and their rich rustic burgundy tones you will also want to wear these shades on your lids.

This beautiful picture ( rose ) is from Pinterest.



This look can be worn as both day & night time look. It didn't take long, but proper blending is needed as the shades are a contrast to one another. Do you use tape to create a clean line at the outer corner of your eyes.



Let's begin, before you start applying your makeup....do not forget to prime and moisturize your face. This time a mixed both Nivea Post Shave Balm and Sephora Face Primer and generously applied the mixture on my face using my hands. 

It gave a very nice and smooth finish and the layering of subsequent products was super easy as it adhered well on my skin. Do prep your eyelids and lips at the same time. I used Urban Decay Eye Primer on the lids and Mary Kay Satin Lips Balm on my lips.


After priming the entire face, eyelids and lips, I went ahead and applied NYX Jumbo Eyeliner in the shade Milk all over the lids. My eyelids as you guys may have already known, is pigmented and darker than the rest of my face. A good white base is a must to make the lightest/brightest eye-shadow pop and give a good color payout.


I then applied tape, on both outer corners of my eye as an outline. The first colour/product that I used is Maybelline Colour Tattoo in the shade Bad to the Bronze on the brow bone. The mild shimmery finish is beautiful and just what I needed to brighten up this rustic look.

Next, was the battle of getting the perfect V at the outer corners of the eye, the key to a beautiful smokey eye. I took the colour in just a little in the crease area. I went in with a light hand as I did not want the pigment transfer to be as bold/dark as the outer corners. I used the shade Forever in Florence from the Vintage Romance Palette.


For the inner corners and other lid areas, I applied Mary Kay Mineral Eyeshadow in the shade Pink. You will want to pack the shadow on your lids as thick as possible to get a good colour payout before you blend them out. 


Add your favorite liner (mine has to be Loreal Black Lacquer) and falsies and your eye look is complete. I used falsies from Daiso, they were nice actually, they are good to be worn for a long event or a stage shows cause they are durable. They help open up your eyes and keep them lively. Inexpensive you get 2 falsies for RM 5.30, so you do the math.  And that my ladies completes the Smokey Rose Eye Look.


Stay tuned, in my next blog post...I will be sharing with you a review on Shye Lashes. Last but not the least, there is going to be a giveaway coming your way. There will be 3 winners for this giveaway. Stay tuned and happy always my loves.
