Make Up Look: Romantic Autumn

As soon as I start to see leaves on the floor, I'm all about Autumnal make up. I LOVE warm tones, oranges, cranberry shades and deep smokey purples and ambers. Get em all over me eyes. I dug out my Sleek Vintage Romance palette after having a bit of a clear out the other day and finding some unloved gems I hadn't used in a while and thought to myself, why on earth haven't I used this in a look before. So here is the consequence of such thinking. Enjoy.

I added a picture of my face because its been a while since I've actually included it on le blog. I'm kinda loving this look, gonna try and recreate using some MAC shadows soon for work! Also dug out the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I'm all about MAC 24 hour eye base, but this has gotta be used. I'm no waster! And thats about it! 
Any questions or requests feel free to leave below for me! Until next time!

Smokey Eye Series: My Go-To MAC Smokey Eye

Well I'm bringing it back. Smokey eyes are my most heard request as a make up artist, whether I'm freelancing or at work, there is a 90% chance clients will ask for a smokey eye. And why not? They really are one of my favourite looks to do (I remember when I couldn't do a smokey eye and hated them on myself) and I think personally, they are the looks that flatter my eye shape and face the most. So I'm bringing back my smokey eye series with my go-to look. This look takes me about 30mins (doing my full face) so its one of my quicker ones but super easy to do! It also only requires a couple of eyeshadows, a slick of eyeliner (pencil or liquid) and some falsies to really glam it up. Let me know what you think!

Right there we have Handwritten, Brown Script and Dance in the Dark (all MAC) eyeshadows. I used Brown Script in the crease, such an amazzzzing transition colour I can't even! Then handwritten in the crease with dance in the dark all over the lid. Literally 3 colours and 5 minutes. I grabbed a little bit of black pencil too and just smudged it into the lashes to add a bit more depth with some falsies for extra jazziness. 

So tell me, what palettes would you like to see a smokey eye from?? I'm taking requests!
