Catherine's Plum Makeup Look (Guest Post)

Thursday 6 February 2014

hey! my name is Catherine and i blog at beauty is in the eye of the beholder, i always enjoy guest posting so when Courtney asked on twitter i jumped at the chance!

If you have seen my blog, you will see i like darker makeup,and i lead towards the more gothic side of things. this time of year is always when i enjoy playing with my plums eyeshadows and colours. so ive put together a bright plum look, with as close as i could get lips to match! wanna know what i used and how i did it? read on!

EYES 024 023
started with elizabeth arden eyeshadow primer.

next, i took wet 'n' wild eyeshadow palette in lust, and using the bright pinky/purple/plum i patted this onto my lid. then i blended this out using a tiny bit of the shadow and a fluffy brush. take your time with this! i went as far up as i wanted, you want to go above the crease.

then i took the glittery plum/black from the same palette and pressed it into the crease and outer corner before blending this too.

then, i felt i needed some shimmer so i took my urban decay dangerous palette, and using rockstar, a shimmery pinky plum, i patted this onto my lid, and blended it in, i didnt go to far above my crease with this.

then i used rockstar again, this went on my lower lashline, then i blended the bright pinky plum into this.

i then used nyx nude matte eyeshadow in i have a headache (a matte shadow, same shade as my skin) and this went to blend any edges out and as a "highlight".

i used virgin from the dangerous palette, as a inner corner highlight.

next, i used maybelline master precise liquid pen eyeliner and drew a normal ( for me) line and flicked it out.

then i lined my waterline and tightline using barry m waterproof eyeliner in black.

finally for the eye i applyed bourjois volume glamour mascara.

028first i primed using NYX pore filler.

next i used NYX HD foundation in nude,i buffed and buffed this in.

NYX concealer wand in porcelain, i used under my eyes and on any spots.

i used my maybelline dream matte powder in rose nude to set my t-zone and the concealer.

for blush, illamasqua powder blusher in hussy, a tiny bit!

to contour i used daniel sandler sculpt and slim, using the contour side.

MUA undress my skin highlighter for my highlight.


LIPS 021
i used illamasqua lipgloss in a dark purple (names rubbed off sorry!) and rockstar eyeshadow!!
