Bonfire Night Inspired Rainbow Eyeliner β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

Hi there lovely people!

I can’t believe it’s already November!!  Time absolutely flies by and I don’t like it haha!  πŸ˜£

As you know it was November 5th yesterday.  Bonfire night!!  I absolutely love watching fireworks and seeing all the different colours (even though it was chucking it down πŸŽ†).  I thought I’d do a fun and vibrant rainbow eyeliner tutorial for you guys!  I think it’s very wearable and glam!

For this tutorial I used my trusty BH cosmetics day and night palette due to the wide range of vibrant colours!

πŸ’₯ I first primed my eyelids so that the colours would look more vibrant.  I also used some water on my brushes to make sure the colours were really pigmented (as a few colours in this palette aren’t extremely pigmented).

πŸ’₯ Next, I did some winged eyeliner with the kiko ultimate pen long wear eyeliner.  It doesn’t have to be winged.  I just thought it was a nice effect 😊 (if you’d like to see a winged eyeliner tutorial let me know!)

πŸ’₯ Next comes the slightly tricky bit. Adding all the colours.  Take a very small detailer brush to do this part.
Wet your brush a bit and take each respective colour.  It doesn’t have to be rainbow either!! You could do different shades of green or blue and build a gradient.  Have fun with it!

Apply the colour above the eyeliner in small strokes.  A small square is sufficient for each colour. Keep going until you reach the wing and slightly wing out the last colour you use.

If you do get eyeshadow over your eyeliner don’t worry about it!  We can over the eyeliner again and sharpen it up.  If you smudge anything simple take a q tip and some makeup remover and wipe away.

If you struggle with eyeliner, you can buy eyeliner guides these days!  Simple apply the stencil to where you want to apply your eyeliner and fill in.  Remember, practice makes perfect!  It’s just eyeliner.  You can remove it and start again in no time 😊

To complete the look, I added some lovely green eyeshadow to my bottom lash line making sure to blend it.  You can also add a highlight to your inner corner and brow bone to add an extra dimension.

Finish off with mascara and voilΓ !!  A gorgeous, fun and vibrant look that believe it or not, is extremely wearable!

Berry Inspired Eyeshadow Tutorial πŸ“

Welcome back to ibeautytalk lovely people!

Hope you’re all doing wonderfully! ❀️

It’s definitely big fat sweater weather here in the North of England!  My favourite time of the year!  All cosy on the sofa with a cuppa! β˜•οΈ

I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do an eyeshadow tutorial inspired by berry/purple shades just for fun!  It brings a lovely pop of colour to the eyes (especially if your a brown eyed gal!)

Berry toned eyeshadow

I’ve put up a collage above piecing together the whole look for those of you who want to get straight to the point!   For those of you who want to know exactly how to achieve this look, keep reading!! 😊

For this berry inspired eyeshadow, I used the BH Cosmetics Day and Night Palette.  This is a gorgeous palette consisting of 60 versatile shades (not all of them are super pigmented but it’s definitely a fab palette for the price!)

BH Cosmetics Day&Night palette

The left side of this palette has some beautiful pastel shades perfect for daytime and the right side has some sexy dark shades for the evening!  I prefer the ‘night’ side because I love me a good smokey eye!
So, the first colour I took was from the left side (first colour of the third row).  It’s a lovely mauvey brown shade perfect for my transition shade with which to blend the rest of the colours out.

  

I tossed it into the crease with a big fat fluffy brush (you don’t have to be too neat).

I then took the brown shade from the right side of the palette (last row, second shade) and deepened up my crease a but more with a slightly thinner blending brush.  This will create a fabulous gradient effect.  Remember to keep blending!

  
  

I then took the tiniest amount of black mixed with the red shade and focused this mainly on the outer corner of my eye, bringing it slightly into the crease again with a more precise brush.

  
  

Don’t worry if it looks a bit messy.  We’re going to clean it up at the end!

I then took more black and focused it right at the outer corner, blending it out with small circular motions with a blending brush.

  

Next, I took a light shimmery purple colour (not the most pigmented colour so forgive the quality) and tapped it on to my lid.  I also added a highlight colour right in the inner corner of my eye to give an extra pop!  To clean up at the edges, take a wet wipe or some makeup remover on a q tip and neaten the edges and blend it once more so you don’t have any harsh lines.

  

You can now go ahead and add your eyeliner and mascara (whatever style you wish, wings or no wings!) and a browbone highlight to give an extra dimension.

  

And there we are!  A lovely purple, berry undertoned eyeshadow look with some lovely red undertones!

  

If you would like me to a post explaining exactly where to place eyeshadows and how to do this for different eye shapes please let me know!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and let me know if you decide to recreate this!

Hope you have a wonderful day lovelies!

Smokey Eye Tutorial πŸ’œ

Heeeey lovely people!!

Hope you’re all fab! ❀️

  

Today I wanted to push myself and do something a bit scary that I would never have done a few months ago.  An eyeshadow tutorial.  Dun dun duuuunn!  You’re probably thinking that’s not a big deal…but for me it’s huge!  I’m not amazing at applying makeup but it’s something I love to do.  It’s my happy place 😊 So I really hope you find this helpful and I know you guys will support me however it turns out because you’re a lovely bunch 😘

So without further ado…

  

Eyeshadow may seem terrifying at first.  You see all these gorgeous looks on Instagram and Pinterest and think how on earth did they do that?!

The key is blending.  Blend blend blend.  I would invest in a good set of eyeshadow brushes.  They don’t have to be expensive at all, just something nice and fluffy to blend, a brush to pack on shadows etc (if you want me to do a in depth post on brushes let me know 😊)

The palette I’m using today is the Sleek Au Naturel palette.  This is a gorgeous drugstore palette with beautiful neutral colours perfect for a sexy smokey eye!  Sleek palettes are definitely my favourites from the drugstore.  They are incredibly buttery and pigmented and blend like a dream! 

  
I have shown which shadows I’m using where just to make it easier to follow.  

  

If you want to prime your eyelids go ahead!  I don’t usually primer them.  A primer will help to make the colours more vibrant and prevent them from sliding about and fading.

First, I took a very fluffy brush and used the shade ‘cappuccino’ as my transition colour.  A transition colour helps all the other colours to blend in.  

  

I then took the shade ‘bark’ on a different fluffy brush and swiped it in my crease.  I take very little product and build it up.  To get a nice gradient, use windscreen wiper motions and keep going back with your fluffy brush with the transition colour just to keep everything nice and blended. 

  

 

Next, I mixed the shades ‘regal’ and ‘noir’ just to darken up the crease a bit more.  Then, with a stiffer blending brush I took just ‘noir’ and applied it to the outer corner of my eye.  You want to make sure you don’t take it past the crease colour.  Don’t worry if you look like a panda!  We’re going to be going back in with our transition colour and blend everything out softly so there are no harsh edges! 

  

I’m darkening the outer v even more whilst blending at the same time.  You don’t want to bring the black too in as we need some space for our lid colour!  
  
Last of the eyeshadows.  I applied the gorgeous ‘taupe’ on the remaining lid space with a flat brush, packing it on.  Don’t worry if you get any fall out!  We can clear that right up!  I tend to do my foundation after my eyes but if you do it first you can buy some shadow shields or just place a tissue under your eyes to capture any fall out!  

Make sure to blend out where the outer v and lid color meet, as we don’t want any harsh lines.  Think Jaclyn Hill vibes!  Flawless!  Just blend it all seamlessly 😍

  
To finish, add your eyeliner and mascara to make it even more dramatic.  A highlight under the brown bone and inner corner will make your eyes pop even more! 

  

VOILΓ€!

There’s the finished eye.  Wasn’t too hard was it?! 😊 

I realise it’s not a perfect smokey eye but I tried my best ☺️.  Eyeshadow is my favourite part of applying makeup!  Hopefully, I’ll continue improving 😊

I really hope you enjoyed this small pictorial and hope you try it out!  I’d love to see what you guys do!

I do want to try and do more eyeshadow tutorials, with different themes. Let me know if that’s something you’d like to see!  

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day wherever you are!
