As promised in the last post, today I am bringing you a quick eye makeup look which I created using the BareMinerals The Mix Master Palette (you can read my post on it here). It’s a smokey green number, I love incorporating colour into my makeup looks but not all of them are wearable on a daily basis. However I find the green in this look isn’t too bold and the look itself is very wearable.
Products I used:
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Ebony
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duality
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- BareMinerals ‘The Mix Master Palette’ shadows: Max Volume, Panaroma, Perspective and Mixologist
- PIXI Pencil Liner in Black
- BareMinerals Lash Domination
- Eldora False Lashes in H124
Now onto how I created the look. I’ve fallen into a habit of doing my brows first so I used my trusty Brow Wiz to fill in and shape and highlighted my browbone using the Brow Duality. Next after priming my lids using UD Primer Potion I started on creating the crease and the smokey outer V using a mixture of the brown Perspective and the black charcoal Panaroma. I blended that out with Mixologist and applied the green Max Volume all over the lid. I also applied a bit of that highlighting shade Mixologist in the inner corners to help open the eyes up. After applying pencil liner to the water line and lashings of Lash Domination mascara, I applied false lashes. The lashes I used are the gorgeous Eldora lashes in H124 which come with an invisible band which meant I could forego the top liner. I think that is all that is to this look!

Recently I’ve been subjecting you to a slew of body care, skin care and pamper posts so to switch it up a little bit I thought I would throw in a little bit of makeup. Yes, I know I am meant to put up a giveaway however I promise it will be a next post. As a self proclaimed makeup addict I couldn’t just keep neglecting the makeup products. I think over the next few posts I will be concentrating on the more makeup side of things so hopefully it will satisfy the cosmetics junkie side of you all!
I have named this look the (as you can tell from the title) Smokey Glitter and Purple Power makeup and really that sums up the look pretty well. It’s a smokey base with a pop of glitter complimented with a flash of purple. Why that sounds like a dessert! I have to admit sometimes a well completed makeup look does feel as satisfying as a dessert.. sometimes.. okay maybe half a dessert is closer to the truth! Without much further ado, here are the products I used.
Firstly after doing my brows using the Anastasia products, I applied a base to my lids using UD Primer Potion and applied Ransom in the inner corner of the eye. Next I applied the brown shades Chocolight and Cappuccino to my crease area and blended with Vanilla. Then I applied Onyx, a true black, all over the lid omitting the inner corner and merged it with the brown shades to create a bold smokey look. I then went ahead and applied the glitter on the center of the lid to add a bit of dazzle. Next I lined the bottom lash line with Ransom and applied Fantasy ( a purple ) all over it and also in the inner corner. I also used the remainder of product on my blending brush in the crease to add a hint of purple to the smokiness. I flicked the purple out and went over it partly with liquid liner to create the double flick on the bottom lash line. I applied mascara and pencil liner and decided to do something I’ve never braved before. I decided to apply lashes without liner and for my first attempt, I’m really happy how it turned out. I think that because the Let’s Go Lashes were so flexible, the band was invisible and the fact that it was air light – all that made the job better. I couldn’t recommend this pair enough!
I hope you liked today’s post, let me know if you would ever dare to brave this look out! I you would like to see more images of this look be sure you check out my Instagram which has more pictures there @makeupAtoZ. I shall speak to you soon lovelies, Tanzina x
I thought I would start a new series of makeup looks, a mini series where I show you an eye makeup look and quickly talk you through what I used to achieve the look. Today I thought I would kick of the makeup look series with a green and brown cut crease which I cooked up for my Instagram page. Green is quite a hard colour to pull off I find, you can either get it right or get it really witchy looking. This shade of green however is just beautiful and I think my favourite green shadow to date.
To create the look, first I completed my brows using the brow powder gel and then highlighted under the brow using Cream. Then I took the liner pencil in Noir and drew in the crease line and ended the line at the corner of my eye, almost like a flick. I went over that with Sienna and blended upwards. Next I applied Jumbo pencil in Milk as a base all over the lid under the crease line and packed on Moss on top. I also added a bit of Cream in the inner corner to highlight. Then using Absynthe liner I used it on the bottom lash line and went over that with Moss. After applying eyeliner and mascara, I popped on a set of h160 from Eldora and the look was done!
I used quite a lot of new products for this look, such as the Anastasia products and also the lashes. Creating new looks with products helps me get a feel of the product so I can bring you all well informed reviews. I’ll be bringing you a closer look at the products soon!
