Evening Make up 3/10/11 - 4/10/11

 3/10/11 - not that I ever go out at all during an evening I do often get bored and there for practice make up yesterday I did a blue under-toned smokey eye look. These looks are inspired by Andrea (teodora andreeva) and Alexandra Stan

I used bourjois shimmering shine liquid eyeshadow (35 gris platine) as a base all over the lid and then applied a light grey all over the lid then blended a darker grey into the outer corner and the crease. I then applied black into the outer corner and the crease slightly to darker the whole look (also black under the eye) I then applied a shimmering white to highlight thee browbone and inner corners before taking a concealer brush and making a sharp line and the outer corner complete with eyeliner mascara and false lashes :) 

4/10/11 - this look is basically the same as yesterday apart from that I used MAC paintpot in bare study as a base and applied the black first into the crease and outer corner making a smokey effect I then blended the black out with a matte brown shadow to lighten and soften the harshness of the black I then took a matte white/cream colour and applied this to the brow bone I then did the lid and patted on a sparkley grey eyeshadow....completed with winged eyeliner and mascara (i would of used false lashes if I could of found the glue! haha )

Make up & Hair inspired by Alexandra Stan

This look is inspired by Romanian beauty Alexandra Stan's music video for Mr Saxobeat in which she has a dark blue smokey eye and curled hair swept to one side. 

 Products used:
  • H&M Palette eyeshadows (dark blue mixed with dark silver) (all over lid)
  • MAC contrast (under eye and crease) 
  • MAC carbon (outer corner of eye blended into the crease and under the eye in the outer corner) 
  • MAC dazzlelight (as highlight on the brow bone)
  • Barry M black eyeliner kohl (waterline)
  • MAC Fluidline in Blitz & Glitz ( on the top lash line)
  • Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara (top and bottom lashes)


  1.  curl all your hair first with a side parting (I used GHD straighteners but curling tongs will also work :) oh and don't forget to use heat protector ;) )
  2. bring all of the hair onto one side and grip into place then using pins, pin any curls down that are sticking out (if you like you can leave a few pieces of hair out at the front on the other side)
  3. arrange the fringe so that it is swept across  the face and so that abit is back into the curls and then pin into place!
  4. then use lots and lots of hairspray hehe et volia!!

And yes I have dyed my hair AGAIN!!! :D hehehe back to blonde :)
