Nothing’s changed…

oh my blog

Hi there,

How are you?

If you have read my blog in the past you may be confused as I have now changed the name and layout of my blog. Having finished my studies and been in and out of hospital recently, I took the decision to review my blog and where I’m going with it. Indeed, studying has made it hard to blog but now that I’m working full time I still believe that it is important to blog as a way to relax away from work plus improve my writing and my creativity skills.

Step by Step Golden Bronze Prom Eyeshadow Tutorial

Dear readers,

Today I will be sharing with you a prom night look that was inspired by my experiments with my urban decay eye palette.

For me, gold is the colour of luxury so when I created a golden make up look using the colour ‘half baked’ I couldn’t resist thinking that this would be perfect for a prom night or a special occasion.

Hope you enjoy the look and don’t hesitate to share your own make up tutorials.

Urban decay naked palette going out eye shadow tutorial

Hey all, I hope you’re all doing great!

Today I will be posting my first tutorial using the urban decay naked palette, which I absolutely adore. I got this palette as a gift from my boyfriend and now I am addicted to using eye shadow.  This look is really great for going out so here we go:

The look:

final

Essential items for this look: urban decay ‘naked’ palette, an eye shadow primer (I am using a NARS one), any mascara and eye liner.

Step by step guide:

Step 1: Prime your eye lids using an eye shadow primer. This is essential to ensure that your eye shadow will last longer. With the NARS one I am able to keep my eye shadow on for the entire day.

step

Step 2:   Apply the colour ‘naked’ to about half of your eyelid. This will be the lightest colour, which will be blended with the other colours of the palette.

step 2

Step 3: Apply the colour ‘buck’ in a round line above the colour ‘naked’. Don’t worry if it is not neat as it is our transition colour that will be blended in to create the whole look.

Step 4: Next draw a small line in the middle of the colour ‘buck’ using the colour ‘gunmetal’. Try to make this as thin as possible as you don’t want this to be the main colour.

step 4

Step 5: Above all the colours add the colour ‘half baked’ up until your eyebrows.

Step 6: Blend all together and you have created this going out look. Blend as little or as much as you want to get your desired look.

Step 7: Add eyeliner and mascara

 

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Do send me links to any of your tutorials.

Lots of love,
