My ''Smokey Sparkly Night Effect'' versus ''Engagement Wedding'' Makeup Looks

Hi people, I'm here again today. Been a few days since I dropped a line ;) . I've been working on preparations for my Makeup & Jewellery training which has been taking a lot of mind work.

I haven't been writing but my brushes definitely haven't been on strike. So, today I'm going to be sharing some pictures of some of my work & my brushes & colour palettes in action. Will also tell you how I achieved the look and the products I used, so sit back and enjoy but don't forget to drop me a comment or commend my work & please do ask questions.

The first look I'm going to share is what I call the ''Smokey Sparkly Night effect''. This look should be worn only on night outs or for photo shoots by models.

I'm sure you all are already waiting to read how I achieved this look. Well, its easy. I primed the face with Mary Kay foundation primer, then I applied Mary Kay Timewise foundation after which I set the foundation with TARA professional pallete powder. I used Tara eyebrow pencil to fill in her brows, and BH cosmetics concealer to define the brows. Eye shadow by BH cosmetics, I used midnight blue from the inner corners of the eyes and I smoked it out with black shadow. Then to give it that sparkly effect, I used lilac disco shimmers by Claire's. Fixed Mac eyelashes and lined her eyes with Black Opal black liner.

Lips: Pink Lip liner by Mac, fuscia & rose pink lipstick by BH cosmetics and i finished with clear lip gloss by Hard Candy. Blush by TARA.

The second makeup look I'm sharing today is the Traditional/Engagement Wedding look.

I used basically the same products as the first to achieve this look also but in different shades. Foundation by Mary Kay, powder by Tara. I filled her brows with Tara eyebrow pencil, then for the eye shadow, I used BH cosmetics shadow in silver(for the inner corner), orange & gold(middle) and I contoured with black & midnight blue. I used light & mid brown matte shadows for her crease and to highlight, I applied a mixture of silver & gold highlight eye shadows. The trick to achieve this flawless look is proper blending.
Lips: Hot red lip liner by Mac, and red lipstick by BH cosmetics. I skipped the lip gloss ;). Blush by Tara.

Well, well.....that's how I got these looks. Lots of products? Yes! It takes more than one product to achieve that perfect look. More pictures for your viewing pleasure?
