Makeup Look

Hi everyone! Lately I've taken more of an interest in makeup in addition to my love for clothes. Although I wear a lot of makeup, I've never been particularly interested in it because I'm not very good and I don't use a great variety of products. However, my love is starting to grow given that I've purchased a couple of amazing products recently. In particular the discovery of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo gel eye shadow has made make up increasingly enjoyable. for me I've wanted to write about this product for awhile now and now seems like the right opportunity given that this is a post about makeup. I've always loved eyeshadow but have very limited skills when it comes to its application. I've been so frustrated with powder eye shadows due to their limited durability; I hate it how I have to apply so much to get a vibrant colour and I'm always annoyed how its practically disappeared by lunch time. As a result I decided to try gel eye shadow and it is perfect. I never want to return to the powder variety. This particular Maybelline product stays on so well. It claims to last for 24 hours and I can definitely say that's true. I was very bad and slept in it (I was so tired one night after work I fell asleep before taking it off) and the next morning it still looked as intense as the day before. It's very easy to apply with a good consistency. I have this product in six different colours now but so far it's only the gold and silver I use frequently. 


I'm sure I'll grow to like the others after experimenting a little more. It's interesting because the purple and blue (which is a really fun and vibrant shade) appear to have a different consistency and don't stay on as well.  They appear creamier and lighter, if that makes sense. I went a little crazy purchasing these products. I often find myself in Priceline during lunch time on a work day so that's how all the damage was done. After years and years of eye shadow disasters my new product is amazing. I can happily say that this product, in combination with  the new lip products which I posted here, give me so many more makeup opinion. For years I used to wear random assortments of eye shadow and red lip stick each day. While red lip stick is certainly still my absolute favourite, I'm having such fun combining my new eye shadows with my new lip colours. Apart from that I like to keep my mascara, blush and face powder consistent. I like to break some of the traditional makeup rules and wear eyeshadow, vibrant lips and blush all at the same time because that's just me!


The products I've used are:
-Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eye Shadow in Bold Gold
-Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black
-Savvy DB Ultra Matte Lip Colour in Icon
-By Terry Growth Booster Mascara
-Clinique Almost Powder Makeup in Fair
-Clinique Blushing Powder Blush in Precious Posy

I'm wearing:
-Hello Sailor Spot Top from Kitten D'Amour

Flawless makeup


Launna said...

I love the gold eye shadow... I've always had issues with powder eye shadow... a primer really helps the color to be vibrant as well as lasting longer. You are so cute Imogen ♡

Oh wow! The eye shadow is so vibrant, looks so pretty.

Aren't the Maybelline Color Tattoos fabulous! I have found if you use one of the beige/nude shades on your lid as a base it helps powder eye shadows last much longer. :)

Great look! Xx


Vita said...

Judging by the photos I always assumed you were really good at make-up, I would have never thought you felt insecure about it! I really like your eye make-up actually. As for the eyeshadows, are you using eyeshadow base? It makes powder shadows last much longer and the colours are a lot more vibrant too. And you can make your own gel eyeshadow by mixing a your powder eyeshadows with eye gel. :) I've been making my own eyeliner like this for some time now and it stays on perfectly. ;)

Blush can be tricky- but it's one of my favorite beauty products to buy! Happy Tuesday!


Panty Buns said...

You chose pretty colours of lipstick and eye-shadow and applied it. Your eyeliner and mascara also look pretty as do your eyes. I've never used gel eyeshadow but remember getting the powdered shadow on my mascara, so factoring in lasting longer as well as the gel sounds worth a try.Your Hello Sailor pot Top from Kitten D'Amour looks pretty as well. It must be fun coordinating your different new lipstick colours with your outfit of the day.


Unknown said...

you look great! <3


Unknown said...

It definitely looks like you know what you are doing when it comes to makeup! You are rocking this look! Your eyes are gorgeous and piercing...and those cheeks. So pretty!
