Pop of Pink: Eye look

Hey Beauties,

I have been experimenting with different eye shadow colors lately, and this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy.

Pop of Pink eye look
Step 1:

I applied NYX Jumbo eye pencil in ‘Milk’ as a base, so as the shadows stay on for longer and result in the color being more vibrant.

Step 2:

I chose a hot pink color and applied a number of layers all over the lid. 

Step 3:

Next, I applied a very dark blue color in the crease and blended it out. Make sure the blend this color with the pink so as not to have a harsh line between the two colors.

Step 4:

Subtly, I applied a black color in the outer ‘V’ of the lid and also on the lower lids, to create more depth to the eye look and blended it.

Step 5:

Next is eyeliner, I decided to wing it out for that cat eye look, after which I applied mascara to the eye lashes.

Step 6:

Applied quite dramatic false lashes and applied NYX Jumbo eye pencil to the inner tear duct and brow bone as highlight.

That is all for the eye look, one can adapt it to one’s own tastes and preferences, however in my case I really like dramatic and dark makeup.

Until next time,

Take Care,

Review: NYX double sided eye pencil

Hi Beauties,

One of my favourite online makeup brands is NYX. It is amazingly cheap 
and good quality. Browsing through the NYX cometics website I found these pencils in the clearing section and decided to try them out.  This product is discontinued on the NYX website,  but it can be found on cherryculture and joy cosmetics on ebay. (Links will be linked down below).  The Double Sided is an eye Liner & Shadow which makes it easier to create an easy and fast smoky look. The brown eyeshadow side is smooth, glides on and wears well without creasing with a primer.   However, the black has a hard texture but if one rolls it between their hands it will be softer and easy to apply. I use both sides as an eye liner. It stays on the waterline for good 2 hours if set with an eye shadow. I like the brown side more since it gives more of a natural look instead of harsh black. If I were to see them in different colours, I would buy them in a heart beat.

Review: NYX Cream Blush

Hello Beauties,

The cream blushes have 3.5g of product which is a fair amount for the price. I have the shades CB 02 Natural and CB08 Hot Pink. 

Natural is a light nude-pink shade hence the name Natural, while Hot flush is a fuchsia colour and really goes bright on the cheek. The cream blush is really creamy, soft and one should use a minimal amount. The blushes add the right flush to the cheeks without looking heavy or obvious that one is wearing blush. After applying a face primer, I use my finger - dotting it to my cheeks for a natural effect, then blending it with a small stipple brush. Afterwards, I set the cream blush with a powder blush or a pressed powder for staying power. Those who have dry skin may leave this step out since it creates a very dewy finish. It lasts all day and is very buildable and natural-looking.

There are a lot of shade to choose from; ranging from natural to reds, which can compliment every skin tone. These blushes do not have any scent. Nyx Cosmetics can be found on , . For our maltese viewers both websites ship to Malta. *yay*.
