So I hope you guys have had an amazing week since the last Beauties on Fire post. If you haven't read that yet, you can HERE. Also be sure to check out Elisabeth's post where you can also find the link up. Make sure to leave positive comments and spread that love!
This weeks theme was voted as 'Disney Princess' which, I love and hate a little. I love because I think all the princesses are colourful and you can create some great looks with them, but I also didn't want the older readers (if you eve reading..) to feel like they couldn't recreate this.
I tweeted a poll on my twitter (feel free to follow - @hardwick_katie) to see which princess you guys would like to see. I would've loved to do Pocahontas, but the one that won was Ariel from The Little Mermaid. So enjoy!
Here are the products that I used:
- Rimmel lasting finish primer
- Rimmel Wake me up concealer
- Rimmel match perfection concealer
- Make up Revolution Affirmation palette
- Maybelline superstay better skin foundation & Maybelline FIT me, matte and poreless foundation
- Sleek 'The original' (594) palette
- Maybelline Master Sculpt duo
- Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked blush in 'Loved Me The Best'
- Sleek Solstice highlighting palette
- Rimmel stay matte pressed powder
- Rimmel London Soft kohl eyeliner pencil in 07/pure white
- Bourjois rouge edition velvet liquid lipstick in 'Nude-ist'
- Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
I used my primer and concealer for a base and used my make up revolution pallet and used the shade 'Vow' to set it all down. The shade 'Hope' I used as my transition colour, this will help the lines not be as harsh in the long run. For the whole lid I took the Sleek palette, the teal-ish colour and blended out. If the edges look weird because of the two colours, just keep blending and go back with the transition colour to blend more. I decided this wasn't as blue as I would've wanted, as obviously this is about the water. So I added the bright blue from the same palette and added this on top of the teal.
I really didn't do much for the eyes but to add the colour, and I'm pretty sure Ariel wears purple, I added the purple from the Sleek palette on my lower lash line, I also brought this up to my lid - almost like a wing.
Then I added some mascara (both, on the top and bottom lashes). I would've done some winged liner but I thought this would ruin the look. Plus, princesses have perfect lashes and adding the wing would make my eyelashes look smaller. You could always add false lashes or the wing, this is up to your preference. Also don't forget to highlight the inner corner of your eye!
I used a white eyeliner for my waterline as I think this worked well with all the colours and also made the eyes seem bigger which is always good for a princess.
I wont talk through the process of the face makeup as that is just the usual, I'm sure most of you get the point. Please, enjoy the rest of the photos:).
I can honestly say that I loved this look so much. I only did it for this post but I will definitely do this again. I don't know, it just made me feel colourful which I think we can all use. I also think this would work for the summer because of the colour use, what ever tickles your fancy I guess.
I hope you enjoyed this post, maybe even got some inspiration from this. I must say that the photos don't give the eye makeup enough justice. Trust me, it's stunning.
That's all for this post but keep an eye out on my twitter as there will be another poll soon for the next theme! See you then.
