Purples…and All Sorts.

22 Jan

Hello Parfait beauties, Happy new year. I know I took so long to post this and I apologize. Last year was a struggle in terms of my blogging game but this year I have promised to take this more seriously and bring you guys all the beautiful things beauty has to offer. And now that I have been forgiven (I hope) lets kick off with a look I have titled “purples and all sorts”
I like purple not exactly sure why and I feel I don’t get to use it on myself enough these days hence the birth of today’s look. For a step by step picture tutorial, please continue reading.

TRIBAL BLUE….

31 Oct

Hello parfait beauties, first of all, I sincerely apologise for being M.I.A. Been very busy with work and fell ill a couple of times but I am back and ready to play. Today’s tutorial is inspired by this neck piece I got. From the moment I saw it, I was inspired but never really got round to creating to look. I have however defeated the laziness and we have ourselves what I like to call….THE TRIBAL BLUE look. I created this look using the 120 eyeshadow palette which I got a while back. For step by step pictures on how I created this look keep reading.

  3. 2. Next I applied a midtone brown to my crease and slightly above it.

  4. 3. I applied a bright purple eyeshadow to my crease.
  5. 4. Next, I applied black to my outer V blending it into the purple.

7. Next I applied a silvery grey eyeshadow to the middle of the lid.

8. On the lower lashline, I applied some purple and the silvery grey eyeshadow.

9. I applied a black khol pencil to the waterline.

10. Then I highlighted my brow bone with a flesh toned gold from the same 120 eyeshadow palette.

I applied falsies, mascara, black gel eyeliner to the top lashline.

I finished the look with blush and glossh nude lips.

Green day…..The green smokey look.

19 Feb

Hello my parfait beauties. I come to you today with one of my favourite looks of all time…..the smokey eye. I have gotten quite a bit of requests asking for this look so I will indulge :D. I must confess that I am no longer a fan of eyeshadows (shocking I know) but I am slowly getting back into it. However when I do wear eyeshadows they have to be smoking hence the smokey eye 😉
Forgive my ramblings….let the fun begin.

P for pink – Pink for Valentine.

11 Feb

And valentine is upon us…..the season of love and the celebration of love. I am not anti-valentine, I don’t get overly excited about it either. Love to me is something that should be celebrated everyday, not just with that special someone but with everyone from family to the lady sweeping the streets. Red is a colour very synonymous with valentine but lets be spontaneous, lets try PINK….:)
