I love experimenting with make up, it’s one of my favourite things to do!

A few nights ago I decided to put my skills to the test and try out something more daring, so I rummaged through my collection and applied what I could find and this is what I got!

 I love the result!

 I used my beauty blender to apply the base, normally I’m not a fan of beauty blenders but for cream foundations I can understand why people love them, it gives such a flawless finish. I think I’ll be using it more often with my Graftobian foundation.

I also think I’m getting there with the winged eyeliner.#Winning!

All details to what I have used can be found below.


Tony Moly Egg Pore Silky Smooth Balm

Make Up For Ever Camouflage Palette in No.4  – No.21 to correct, No. 20 & No.16 to highlight my brows

Graftobian Hi-Def Colour Palette in Warm #3 – Ginger for base, Winter Wheat for under eye highlight

Ben Nye Translucent Powder in Topaz

Sleek Contour Kit in Dark

Cover Girl Queen Bronzer in Ebony Bronze Q120

Milani Baked Powder Blush in 04 Terra Sole

Mary Kay Make Up Finishing Spray


Wet N Wild’s Vanity Palette – Dark Brown E/S to fill in brows

Generic Matte Brown E/S for base

Makeup Geek Eyeliner in Immortal

Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama Mascara

AVON Supershock Liner in Black


Lime Crime CandyFuture Lipstick in Styletto

Bellapierre Shimmer Powder in Celebration

Styletto is a really gorgeous colour! I matted it out by blotting to give the desired look above.

I am also really loving using make up products for other uses then intended.

The Shimmer powder is fab and can be used as eye shadow, highlight and bronzer too!

I’ll be creating a post soon with products that can be used several ways so stay tuned for that!

What do you think of the look?

Anything you would change?
