Cloudy Rainbow

I made this look with 2 of my favourite brands: Sugarpill and MakeUp Geek. I also adore my Sleek makeup palettes so they bascially share a top 3 together.

My initial idea was to stay with the orange, pink and plummy colours from my MakeUp Geek pigments but then I added some colours from my Sugarpill Heartbreaker palette and well… that’s when things became rainbow…ish.
The MakeUp Geek pigments are Afterglow, Enchanted and a bit of New Years Eve.

I really like the combination of colours I used under the eye: Sugarpill Olivia, Mochi and Velocity. It’s not a load of colour but it’s enough to stand out. And I used Sugarpill’s Asteria on the moving lid and Poison Plum and 2AM in the crease and Diamond Eyes under the brow.

This time I didn’t use any eyeliner, I used black eyeshadow at the lashline and I really like that effect. It’s a lot more smokey. πŸ™‚

Cloudy Rainbow7

I didn’t use a lot of colour on the lips, figured I’d keep those light for a change. I like dark lips and dark eyes but I can make the whole look a bit “much”, don’t you think?

I really loved working with so many colours again. What do you think, do you like this look? With what lip colour would you have paired it?

Changing Of The Seasons

Autumn has technically passed a while ago but I still love those colours. I made this look with the colours of early autumn in mind. That time when you just notice the leaves goig yellow and golden but they haven’t fallen off just yet. I like that time of year because it’s usually still a warmer temperature but you can feel the cold starting to creep in.

I made this look with some of my Sugarpill pigments and pressed eyeshadows: Goldilux, Olivia, Subterranean and Diamond Eyes.
Hope you like it!

A have a soft spot for Sugarpill Goldilux because no matter what you pair it with, it always glows like a ray of sunshine. πŸ™‚

Changing Of The Seasons5

Honestly, the only thing I really don’t like about this look is the sloppy brows. I just didn’t pay attention to them after I added my highlighter and now it’s sparkling up my brows. Oh well, sparkly brows are fun too. πŸ™‚

Changing Of The Season6

I just did one eye and I didn’t like the pictures where I looked up or in the camera so there’s just one fullface picture. But those pictures are usually just to give you an idea of how it looked from a distance so this gives a pretty good picture of that, right?

I liked doing this look but I notice I’ve kinda lost the autumn mood, probably like I said: because it’s no longer autumn, haha.

Turquoise lashes

I was having some fun with a new mascara from Essence. It’s an awesome colour and I figured I could pair it with blue eyeshadow to make the colour pop. Well… that didn’t turn out the way I wanted it! The mascara is well “pigmented”, if you can call mascara’s pigmented, but the colours from Sugarpill are just way too strong, haha!

So the colour of the mascara really doesn’t pop anymore but you can still see it, right?

I still love the shine in Magpie, when the light hit’s it. It’s so beautiful!

I did a double eyeliner to make it a bit more fun. It’s still not my favourite look but it was nice to experiment with this coloured mascara.

What do you guys think? Do you ever use coloured mascara’s like this? I personally don’t, I always use a black one but a little pop of colour is a nice change. What colours would you pair this mascara with? Any ideas I should try with it?

Autumn Golden Purple

I told you about my idea to do more autumn inspired looks on my Facebook page and I started searching for pictures right away. I ran into this beauty pretty fast.

Purple autumn leaves with light gold

Isn’t it stunning? As you probably all know I’m a sucker for purple and combined with this light golden colour it’s really stunning to me. So I got out my palettes and tried to recreate something like this on my eyelids. Or actually, eyelid, because I only did one eye. I did make fullface pictures though.

I loved this look so much that I decided not to just upload it on my Facebook page but to also make a blogpost out of it. I really hope you like it too. πŸ™‚

Autumn Golden and Purple1 by Lisanne Blogt

I basically got out all my purples and trust me: that’s a LOT! I pretty soon decided not to go overboard with all kinds of different shades. I really wanted it to be rich and dark and… well, autumny. I also thought the colours purple on the inspirational picture were pretty warm and pink toned so I tried to select those colours in my range of purples too.

Autumn Golden and Purple3 by Lisanne Blogt

I used some colours of my favourite brand again: Sugarpill.
Their Poison Plum is pretty much the perfect shade of purple for what I had in mind. Later I also added Hysteric to the middle part of the moving lid to make it a bit lighter. And since it’s a look with some gold in it, I couldn’t resist using a tiny bit of Goldilux too. I mixed Goldilux with a pale gold from my Sleek Safari palette to get a better tone of gold.

Autumn Golden and Purple5 by Lisanne Blogt

I also used my MAC Push The Edge pigment and Urban Decay Rockstar pigments. Those are the darkest purple pigments I have and it really created some depth and tone that I was looking for. It also added the tiny bit of glitter in the outer corner and I liked that too, even though I tried to contain myself. Once I get going with the sparkles I usually tend to go overboard, lol.

Autumn Golden and Purple7 by Lisanne Blogt

As you can see I also added the gold from Goldilux to my waterline to really get that golden accent to sparkle the way it does in the picture that inspired all this. I added some liquid liner but I tried to keep it at a thin line so it wouldn’t go over all the purple goodness. πŸ™‚

And like I said: some fullface pictures with just the one eye. I didn’t feel like doing both eyes because I was going to take it all off after this anyway. But I did want to show it with some lipstick. I first thought I’d do a dark lipstick with it but when I got to the lipstick I figured that would be too much. So I used a darker shade of rose I still have from an old range of Catrice lippies called Burgundy.

Autumn Golden with Purple fullface 2 by Lisanne Blogt

I just adore this look, what do you think?

The next look in this series might have to wait a couple of days because in the upcoming days I have a lot of fun stuff planned. My love and I are going to the Efteling with both our parents tomorrow and after that we have a lot of visits to friends planned. We’re bascially going to tour through all the Netherlands, lol. We just got home from our vacation in Macedonia and we have some days off work left so we decided to use them to cram full of fun stuff. Yay πŸ˜€

I do think I’ll do another blogpost about the upcoming autumn looks. Are there any colours you really want to see in this series? Please let me know in the comments or on my Facebook page!

Prince @#$%!ing Charming

I’ve been in a “yay it’s almost spring” mood for about a week. Even though it’s quite early, the weather is great around here and I’m so happy the end of winter is in sight. I was dreading the snow and the freezing cold and somehow we skipped that part this year. It’s basically been a really, really really long autumn and I’m not one bit disappointed that we skipped the icy cold part of winter.

Anyway, because I was in a happy-happy-joy-joy-mood I wanted to do an intense look with glitterrrrrr. And some red, silver and blue. Here’s what happened.
