Classic Michty! My Go-to Smoky Eye Makeup Tutorial ft Sugarpill & Inglot

This is my go-to eye look since way back and I thought I would do a tutorial showing you the ins and outs of Classic Michty, while going through helpful hints and steps that work for any smoky eye in any style.

I either use one of two creamy black bases for this eye, Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Perversion or Inglot matte gel eyeliner in #77. This time I went for the gel eyeliner and showed how you can use the same product for your lid, waterlines and lower lashline and go through a good few techniques of blending and smudging cream and powder products.

The black eyeshadow I always use is Sugarpill Bulletproof and I swear and die by this blackest of blacks with a smooth formula that lets you blend to your hearts content. And as with any eyeshadow look I suggest a transition shade and layering to help your smoky eye look perfectly blended and airbrushed.

If you love an opaque, deep dark black as much as I do, check out Bulletproof, the blackest black ever, from Sugarpill here, along with many other gorgeous bright shadows!

Enjoy!

GRWM Persian Gold Makeup & OOTD ft Urban Decay, Inglot, Romwe & Dolls Kill

I wanted some gold in my makeup to go with the gold covered Persian "God King" and also a fierce winged liner with black, inspired by the makeup Eva Green wore. I'm a big fan of hers; she was totally sexy gorgeous in the movie and a mega badass to boot! Her sharp features and menacing stare was fierce and so powerful and I loved her unapologetic black lids which reminded me of how I used to wear my makeup back in the day. 

For my movie inspired makeup, I used Inglot #34 & #430, as golds for my eyes with some Eye Kandy Bananarama glitter for some sparkle and Urban Decay Perversion and ElDorado liquid liners for the extreme winged liner.

I chose a matte red lip cause it's my favourite way to wear them, and for a lip that withstands an assault of popcorn, choc-top ice-cream & drinks you can't go past Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet.

I went for yellows and golds in the Unif leopard Idol dress & Ed Hardy Hoodie I wore and paired that with my Romwe mental studded leggings & Jeffrey Campbell the Spike Litas for that tough edge I gravitate towards.

Enjoy!

Maleficent inspired Oil Slick Eye Makeup Tutorial ft Sugarpill Cold Chemistry Palette


I was pondering the coming Maleficent movie with Angelina Jolie and excitedly so, because my favourite Disney princess since I was a child, was always Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. 

I thought I would create a makeup embodying her evil and representative colours from the old movie. So I accessed the dark power of the Sugarpill Cold Chemistry palette with the wicked shades Subterranean and Elemental Chaos. I added the Sugarpill Spark False Lashes for her spiky demeanour with their crystal stones as hard as her heart.

I really liked how the eyeshadows blended together without becoming muddy, which can be a risk with green and purple blended together. And using the Inglot light peach rainbow shadow #111, the shimmery shades blended out into the crease with ease. The Cold Chemistry palette works really well over dark bases and using black lets the reflective shimmer shine through over the darkened base of the shade. I'm really enjoying this dark release from Sugarpill.

And I always think a creamy base is a must for strong eyeshadow looks. I loved using my new Milani "liquid-like" eyeliner pencil in Perfect Purple, and I think I may have actually found my perfect purple pencil! It's more opaque than Urban decay Ransom and the tone is dark with lighter glitter in it than most purple pencils I've tried and I've tried many! Plus it goes on the skin & blends easily and seriously resists rubbing off when it dries and stays on unless you use makeup remover.

I think the overall look came out looking like an oil slick, which is still cool and you could even increase this effect with adding some black in the outer corners or a spot of yellow to the centre of the lid. 

Have fun with the tutorial below or view it here on my YouTube channel and the Lip Art tutorial can be found here.

GRWM: Eminem gig Makeup & OOTD ft Sugarpill, Cyberdog, Romwe & Dolls Kill

I went to the Eminem gig and instead of dressing in a thematic Hiphop fashion, I decided to go for my new Dolls Kill Holo skirt, Cyberdog Orbit vest and Romwe Cut-out white leggings. 

This gave me a great excuse to use the amazing pink neon Love Buzz pigment from Sugarpill and added some extra pink sparkle with Eye Kandy Cotton Candy, then to match the holographic skirt I used MAC 3D Silver glitter and Eye Kandy Confetti with Sugarpill Tiara for a silver eyeliner and inner corner highlight.

I went for the fabulous shimmery metallic "Yaoi" lip tar from OCC to have lips that matched it all. The pink is a brilliant colour and the lip lasted all night through singing along, munching on snacks and walking around the city in the rain.

If you are fascinated by the magnificently metallic silver pigment or hot, hot neon pigments, check out Sugarpill here, along with many other gorgeous shadows!


Enjoy!
