GRWM Godzilla Makeup Tutorial ft Sugarpill, Inglot & Girls With Attitude

I went to the new Godzilla movie and thought while I was at it I'd record a get ready with me tutorial. I based my makeup on Godzilla himself and used some green lizard-like colours from Sugarpill such as Subterranean, Absinthe and Lumi, along with some exotic eyeliner using Urban Decay Perversion and Inglot's ever smooth matte gel eyeliner.

I also tired these amazing false lashes that the gals from Girls with Attitude sent me and I instantly fell in love with them. They flare out at the edges to accentuate the cat eye liner and fit superbly, with easy application using the glue included in the box.

I also created some dark and glittery lips and you can check out the lip art tutorial when it comes out soon...

Nail Tutorial: How to Fix a Broken Nail

I had cracked my nail and wanted to forgo the big chop off, so I employed this great method for holding the nail together and thought I'd share it with you. It works very well and uses a few items you should have lying around the house. And if you use non acetone nail polish remover it can last 2-3 nail polish changes and otherwise it holds your nail together until you change your manicure.

By the way, so far it has latest for 5 days as has my latest manicure and I really recommend the method if a nasty crack befalls your nail.

Enjoy!

GRWM Maleficent insp. Lip ft Lime Crime & NYX

Come get ready with me for the new Maleficent movie! These are the quick and easy lips I created to contrast with my old school Maleficent inspired eye makeup.

I chose to use rich juicy red shades like Lime Crime's Retrofuturist and their glosses Candy Apple plus Cherry on top to give a full glossy pout and added some darkness and definition in the corners with NYX Cosmetics Black Berry pencil.

The tutorial for the eye makeup is here and you can see the video on this quick hot red lip below.

Enjoy!

GRWM Maleficent Inspired Eye Makeup ft Inglot Sugarpill & Girls With Attitude

Come get ready with me for the new Maleficent movie!

I chose some colours to play with that are from the old Sleeping Beauty character including Inglot shadows #439 and #441 which are so gorgeous and I wish I wore more often. I also created a purple gradient across the lid with Sugarpill Paperdoll and added a pigment sample on top for a delicate bright brightly shining inner corner.

The awesome darkness with magenta sparkle on the outer corner of the eye came from MAC Young Punk which is a fantastic mineralised shadow that just gets me off! That's something else I should dig out of my collection more often too. 

I had to use a splash of green so I tried out my new Tipsy pigment from Sugarpill on the lower lashline and liked the way it came out in contrast to the purple on the upper lid.

For the lashes I chose the amazing pair from Girls With Attitude called Raven and I couldn't go past them cause of the name and the fluttery appearance which was both perfect to represent Maleficent's crow in the makeup.

And you can check out the lip art tutorial here!

Jafar Lip Art: Disney Villains Collaboration with Makeup Frenzy

This is a fun first time thing for me where I'm collaborating with the fabulous Makeup Frenzy on Facebook and Instagram. We decided to choose Disney Villains and create looks based on their evil tendencies and delightful disney colours.

I took inspiration from Jafar from Aladdin and as the Disney wiki says "Jafar is portrayed as an amoral psychopath who'll not hesitate to destroy anyone"... "gaining the trust of those around him, despite his rather untrustworthy physical appearance."

So I drew from his curved and uplifted eyes and the menacing shoulders of his costume which materialised into the joker style smiling corners I drew with the inglot gel eyeliner and also the very pointed cupid's bow of the lip art. The bright red shade from Yves Saint Laurent gave a lovely shiny look and the centre highlight gold from Sugarpill Goldilux was perfect to represent his magical staff and other gold embellishments.

And if you are in need of pigmented awesome matte shadows or beautiful sparkly pigments check out Sugarpill here, along with many other gorgeous shadows & lashes!

Enjoy!









And here's Makeup Frenzy's Cruella DeVil inspired lip art! Check her out on Facebook and Instagram.
