Something a Little Different.

Thought I'd do something a little different aka I was really bored and decided to play with my make up and face!
I realise I haven't got much make up, or even very good products. And I definitely do not have a clue how to apply it 'technically', I just watch tutorials, realise I have none of their products, and pretend I know what I'm doing and begin throwing things on my face!
So on a Monday afternoon, when I've done all I was supposed to do, and I'm alone in the house..this is what happens.
At first I was just going to clear out my make up, I had a lot of stuff that I'd collected over the year and either never touched or just don't use I laid it all out, and thought 'I know, I'll just wing it and see what happens'
The products I used:
  •  Eyeshadow Palette (was bought as a present and there's no label/brand on it)
    • Light yellow/neutral colour
    • Lilac-y colour
  • Rimmel Gel Eyeliner
  • Scandeleyes Collection 2000 Mascara
  • The Body Shop Cheek and Lip Tint
  • Barry M Thick Eyeliner Pencil (came free in a magazine, not sure if it's actually for sale!)
  • Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
  • Revlon Get Glossy Lip Palette
 A little bit of what I did:
  • I used the yellow/neutral colour in the corner of my eyes to open them up and look brighter (nice little tip I learnt from FleurDeForce's £20 Make up challenge, thanks Fleur!)
  • I used both ends of my eyeliner pencil, the darker purple over my black eyeliner on my top lid, and then used the lighter pinky/shimmery shade over the ends, I used it on both my top and bottom lids to give it a little shimmer :)
  • I think mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow are self explainitory haha..
  • The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Tint served me well, I used it on my cheeks first - putting 3 dots of it and blending it in with my finger.
  • I also used it on my lips as a stain, and put the pale pink shade of gloss over the top just to make it a little more exciting. (I'm aware the picture of the gloss is gross, I've used it a lot..)

You can see the eyeliner pencil well in the top right hand corner picture!

My products :)

Finished article!
(before and after, hopefully the first..and last time I'll be on the internet face naked!)

Oh and as I was on a roll, I also used my Tresseme Heated rollers whilst I was doing it...gave my hair a little boost :)

Like I said, I don't have the first clue about the proper ways of make up, I'm learning and building a knowledge through beauty blogs and such, but my blog really isn't about make up at all haha..I just though I'd give it a go!

What do you think?

Love, Elizabeth xx
