I cant believe this is week 6 of the beauties on fire collaboration. Really doesn't feel like it. Anyway, this weeks theme is bold, which is actually what I suggested a few weeks ago. Obviously I already had an idea in mind so I hope you guys enjoy. If you want to read Elisabeth's post to see her look and also find everyone else's posts, click HERE.
For my look I decided to make my eyes the focal point. I will be honest, it didn't turn out exactly how I would've loved, but hey ho. I will list the eye products I used below, but I will miss out the face makeup as that is just the usual. If you are interested, read a previous Beauties on fire post.
Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer - For a base.
Makeup Revolution, Fortune Favours The Brave palette.
Makeup Revolution, Eyes Like Angles palette.
Sleek Solstice palette.
Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara.
The eye look is extremely simple, which is good because if you are someone who has no idea what you are doing with makeup, you could try this. You could also make this work for several eye shapes/sizes.
All I did was take the shade 'Buffer' from the Makeup Revolution 'Fortune Favours The Brave' palette in the crease and blended it out. This is just the transition shade, you could use a similar shade or even one that matches your skin tone. This is just so that the other shades blend well and don't leave any harsh lines.
I used the shade ' Smoothie' from the palette above for the outer corner of my eye and brought it in to the crease. You can also put this all over the lid if it helps. Then the shimmery shade I added was 'Green Envy' from the Makeup Revolution 'Eyes Like Angles' palette. I absolutely love this shade, I don't think it suits me all too well but I still love it. It is so pigmented!
That's it for the eyes really, just add your favourite mascara or lashes, bring the dark matte shade down under your lower lash line (this will help it look more smoky and 'put together') and highlight your inner corner. Obviously I used the trusty Sleek Solstice palette. I guess you could also add liquid liner but I chose not too, as the boldness was the eyeshadow. Normally I don't leave out the liner but for this look I think it looks great without too!
I also did a second look but I wasn't too happy with it. I don't think the colours compliment each other well. I will still include a picture so you guys can see but I just wasn't happy with it I personally would've left it with the red/pink shadow. All of the shades for this look were from the same palettes used above.
All I can say is, experiment. Try different colours, styles, something that you wouldn't normally reach for. If you tend to reach for browns/nudes go for a red style, or blue. If you don't even reach for eyeshadow, try it! Or even try a bold lip. Because why not?
I hope you are all having a good summer. Honestly I'm more excited for Autumn!
