Bold Lip and Eye Flick Tutorial



It's that year where me and my friends are all turning 21, and yes you guessed it, time to have some major celebrations. Now, as your well aware, no one wants to turn up to all the parties in the same outfit you wore last time, and same goes to hair and make up. I wanted something different each time and to experiment more with the products I own and last weekend I created a look which I actually quite liked and felt like I want to share it with you all.

So here goes the tutorial...

How To Create:

1. As I do each time I apply my make up, I take my Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer in 002 and applied it to face, eyes and down the neck a little.

2. I let that dry a little and then went in with the Mac Studio Sculpt Foundation in NC20 with the Real Techniques Face Expert brush blending it down the neck so I don't have any lines across my jawline and it blends it better with the tone of my skin. To make sure it was fully blending I used my Mac 187 Stippling brush.

3. Focusing on the eyes next, I used a range of shadows, firstly the Mac shadow in Sweet Satisfaction across the whole lid, then I used the Nooner and then Liar from my Naked 3 Palette across the crease, make sure you don't rush and it has blended in well.

4. I then took Buzz from the palette and placed it across the middle of my eye lid making sure it blend into the crease and outer of the eye. For the inner of the eye I took Buzz which is the perfect shimmery light pink to brighten the look.

5. Taking my Soap & Glory eye liner pen, I drew a small line on my top lash line and added a thick flick at the end. I'm quite rubbish at this step so take your time, and practice!! (F.Y.I use small cotton buds to remove any mistakes.

6. If you have any eye lash curlers, then use these to try and make your lashes look nice and big and then apply the mascara. I used Maybelline Great Lash Mascara but obviously you can use one of your choice.

7. Once your are happy with your eyes, take a concealer and put over any blemishes or problem areas and under your eyes to brighten them up. My choice was the Collection Concealer in Cool Medium 2. 

8. If you use any powder, I took the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 006 Warm Beige to set my foundation and to remove any oily areas.

9. At the minute I am loving he contour effect, nothing too drastic though, I used a couple of products here, my Benefit Hoola and the bronzer from Benefit 10. I sucked in my cheeks and using my Real Techniques blusher brush I swept it just under my cheekbones, however only go part way down your face.

10. Once this has blended well and going to your temples slightly, your ready for your blush. I used my new favourite product No7. Sunkissed Moasaic bronzing powder and placed it on the apples of my cheeks sweeping upwards. The most important part is that it doesn't look too dark and is fully blended.

11. A little bit of shimmer is important here, I have just discovered a Body Shop highlighter amongst all my products, I put this on the top of my forehead, down the arch of my nose and across the tops of the cheekbones.

12. For some reason I always leave my brows til last, so if your not one for filling it in then just miss this step out. Take whatever brow product your loving at the minute, mine being Benefit Brow zing and fill in those brows!!


 13.  Now, this is something I do not normally do so I decided it was about time I took my Nars Velvet Lip Pencil and make a bold statement. Obviously any red lipstick will do the trick here.

VoilĂ  you have one finished look!!

I hope that these steps were helpful and easy to follow, I'd love to hear what you think and also see your attempts at it.
