Brown Cut Crease & Arabic Inspired Liner | Video Tutorial

Hey everyone ! Sorry I haven't been uploading as much recently ,currently moving away from home & got a new job (might do a video or blog post explaining) so once I get back into a routine I'll be uploading consistently again .

Todays video tutorial is an in-depth longer video just focusing on how I created this brown cut crease . Cut creases sometimes can be a little harsh / borderline drag queen if you use loads of colour and glitter etc but this cut crease with browns in my opinion is quite wearable .

Cut Creases are very daunting to do but if you have time to spend on your make up you should definitely give it a go . Wouldn't recommend trying if your in a rush though !

St Patricks Day | Make Up Tutorial

Watch on Youtube : Click Here .

Considering I'm Irish , I kind of had to do a tutorial for St. Patricks day as it is such a big day in
Ireland . Whether you're going to the pub for ' a few casuals' (which lets be honest, never goes to plan) or planning on partying the night away this look is perfect . Its in theme with the day but not over the top .

Lip wise I just wore some lipliner (Penneys Nude Lipliner) & ligloss (Benefit Lipgloss in Hervana ) .

A tip for applying the glitter would be to do it before your foundation just so its easier to remove fall out . If you don't like the look of the orange on the bottom lash line you could use green and it would look just as nice . If your feeling super festive you could draw some shamrocks on your face as well .

Bargain Beauty Buy | PS Individual Lashes

Well you could say this weeks bargain beauty buy post is very last minute this week as its half ten on a Sunday night . I wrote this one out in my notebook but just never got a chance to sit down and type it up , until now .

These lashes are one of my all time favourite beauty products . They are just so handy . Usually individual eyelashes can be a little time consuming but these lashes make applying individuals a little easier & faster.

Instead of being just one strand of hair there is little clusters of eyelashes together . This also means you wouldn't use up the whole pack trying to get the desired look (like you might have to with other individual eyelashes).

What I like about them is they can be built up to quite a dramatic lash or you can do a nice subtle lash. The hairs look natural too , because I know some cheaper eyelashes can look fake & plastic looking .

I prefer them over any of my other individual eyelashes and all my friends are big fans of them too. If Penneys ever said that they were discontinuing them I would be in like lighting buying them in bulk (which I already do , but I mean buy the whole shop out of them hahah ) .

They retail at €1.50/£1 in Penneys/Primark all over the country .

Thanks For Reading .

5 Commonly Asked Make Up Questions | Answered

Watch the video in HD/Full Screen : Click Here .

1 . Do you need to use face primer ? (general questions about face primer)

Face primer makes a huge different to the finish and longevity of you foundation . Just like building a house your need to prime the walls first to have a good strong base . Moisturiser works well as a primer too because it acts as a barrier between the foundation and your skin while also moisturising your skin helping the foundation apply smoothly .

You can get water based & silicon based primers . If your foundation is water based make sure your using a water based primer . Likewise for silicon , if your foundation is silicon based use a silicon base primer. They will just be more compatible & work well together this way .

Silicon based primer smooths out wrinkles , reduce the appearance of pores & is amazing at keeping foundation on all day/night . Water based is more gentle on the skin & more suitable for everyday wear .

2 .What order should you do your make up in ? Eyes or foundation first ?

I would do eyes first mainly . This just makes it easier to remove any eyeshadow fallout before applying your face primer & foundation . If your doing a natural eye you could get away with applying your face primer & foundation first. Just up to you and what your think works better for you.

3. How to remove/get rid of wrinkles with make up ?

Sadly , you cant . You just have to use products to make your skin more youthful looking & minimize the appearance of wrinkles but nothing will make them completely disappear .

4. Concealer or Foundation first ?

Personal preference . If I was going out on a night out I would apply foundation first then concealer . Just because I know I would be applying foundation anyway then if there is areas I want to conceal more (under eye and blemishes ) I would apply concealer  . For daytime makeup though I would apply concealer first just too see what can be covered with the concealer , if I am happy with what the concealer is covering I can leave out the foundation .

5 . How to choose the right foundation for your skin ?

You need to figure out what kind of look you want from your foundation (dewy, matte , silk ?) , what kind of skin tone you are (warm , cool ,neutral ?) , skin type (oily, dry ,combination?) & what kind of coverage you want (light , medium or full ?) .
