Autumn/Winter Makeup Inspiration :)

Friends!! hello! and sorry for being MIA for so long!! In all honesty I've just been so busy with life that I haven't had the time (or should I say, I haven't MADE the time) to write posts, but anyway, I'm BACK and I'm going to make every effort to be more consistent and get back on track with doing waht i love to do :)

So today I was inspired by a lovely 'Winter' makeup look that I saw on Pinterest, it consisted of a gold smokey eye, with white eyeliner on the inner crease (yes, WHITE) and a deep red lip.

I contoured with my new favourite concealer (it's actually a foundation that I use as a concealer) in Heavenly Honey by Black Opal, I then went over that with Ben Nye Banana Powder.

The look that inspired me is below as well as my rendition of it, and as per usual I've listed all the products that I used :)

Products used:


Swiss Chocolate by Mac in the crease

St Tropez HD eyeshadow by Artist of Makeup Cosmetics (AOM Cosmetics) all over the lid

I then used a dark brown eyeshadow mixed with a little black in the corners

I used a Maybelline mascara and some false corner lashes

I used a white eyeline from NYC


I used Carob stick foundation by Black Opal

I then highlighted with Heavenly honey stick foundation also by Black Opal

I went over the highlighted areas with Ben Nye powder in Banana


I had to mix Barry M #156 with a deep purple colour by Jenny Packham, followed by Decorative Lipglass by Mac. I didn't quite get the plum colour I was after, I think I need to look for a nice plum lip liner to fill my lips in first, to get that intense colour; but I'm still happy with the outcome

Thank you for reading and I hope this inspires you :)

Have a good week
Love, you

p.s. my website is on its way, so keep your eyes peeled :)
