Hello, hello :)! How are you keeping my darlings?
I am keeping well (in case you were wondering), I hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa brought you all the goodies you had on your lists. My husband was hospitalized for a few weeks, so that's what Santa brought me: my hubby back home, which is the best gift ever!!!
Moving on from the 'serious' stuff and onto more shallow side of things (Man, I missed worrying about shallow stuff!), today I thought I'll show you a little trick that you guys might already know, but still wanted to share with you, just in case. If you love your smoke eyes but sometimes feel that blending the hell out of your brush just doesn't cut it, or else you have a crappy blending brush (like in my case, ahem), here's a little simple trick to help you in those 'tough' times:
Step 1: Apply your medium-dark shade on the entire eyelid, and go above the crease
Step 2: Apply the darkest shade on the outer corner of the eye in your usual 'V' shape
Step 3: To achieve the perfectly blended look with no hassle, take a matte light colour eyeshadow (skin toned works the best) and apply on the edges of the medium shade- up to the browbone, leaving some space for the lightest shade, as usual (see below)
Step 4: Smudge an eyeliner on the upper lash line (the NYC Showtime Glitter Eyeliner in 'Black' is amazeballs), apply your lightest highlighting shade on the inner corner and under the brows, and then mascara.
And there you have it...the perfectly blended effect ;)
In case you missed me, cause it's been a while let's face it, here's a mug shot for your entertainment with the finished result:
And that's that! Tomorrow is New Year's Eve, so exciting! I already know what I'll be wearing, but by God what make-up am I going to do? Decisions, decisions....
I will announce the NYC goodie bags winners shortly, my sincere apologies for the delay to everyone that entered the competition, December hasn't been my best month I'm afraid :(...
I might do a quick post showing you my outfit & face of the day tomorrow, just for the craic :D!
Have a lovely night babes, Man, it's good to be back!
