So earlier this week for Aqeela's weekly make up tag, I transformed myself from Plain Jane to show stopping, red carpet hollywood glamour queen. Hmmm, well that was the intention. Once I'd finished, I realised it didn't look anything special at all. Just the usual but with red lips. A few of the things I used came from BBS.
|MAC ricepaper, shimmery champagne shadow, Lancome hypnose doll eyes mascara, Urban Decay Perversion, MAC paintpot and MAC russian red all came from swaps (not all items are pictured above).|
This is what I was meant to use but I ended up giving the lashes a miss (as always I chickened out) and replaced the YSL glossy stain with MAC russian red as I was worried I wouldn't be able to wipe away the pigment from the stain and I was only in the house for the day.
For the Hollywood Glamour theme I decided to go with high coverage and used the No7 Protect and perfect foundation. I didn't use the foundation brush either but went for a damp cosmopolitan sponge to stop it looking like a mask.
I went for quite bold brows, a bright eye with winged liner and lots of mascara. Last but not least the signature red lips which is MAC Russian Red.
I used the Lancome doll eyes mascara to replace the false lashes I was meant to use. On the lid I had a MAC paintpot, a champagne shimmery eyeshadow and Urban decay perversion liner.
I don't think my look really came across as Hollywood Glamour in the end but all the same and although I wasn't going to do a post on it I thought I would share it as my blog has been very review based recently and that's not always very fun. Pop over to Aqeela's blog for a gander at all the other looks. There are some fab ones.
Hope you enjoyed this.
Till next time ...Toodles! :)
