Copy Cat Makeup // Dramatic Coloured FOTN

Is it fair to say I was "inspired" by Misschievious on Youtube when I pretty much copied her drugstore makeup tutorial? And although I was drooling over the Sleek Lagoon palette she used, I knew I would have plenty of similar colours I could substitute them for. I love using a darker base underneath bright colours for a bright but smoky look, as done in my Jewel Smoky Eye Makeup, as it brings them out differently compared to a lighter base.

And although this was a bored-on-a-saturday-night-playing-with-makeup-look it wasn't a waste of makeup as we ended up going out in the end. Nothing worse when you do your makeup perfectly and then nothing happens!

Ignore the eyelash giving me a lazy eye!

Face: Australis Paparazzi Perfect Foundation Nude, Rimmel Wake Me Up Soft Beige, Nars Laguna, MAC Lightscapade, Ingot blush #51
Eyes: MAC Painterly Paintpot, Essence Ballerina Backstage eye souffle [black, base], Nyx Base White [base for inner corner & higher in the crease] next as pictured;
1- random ebay pigment [coral, inner corner],
2- Bh Cosmetics Day & Night [dark indigo purple, outer corner],
3- Day & Night [teal, lower lashline],
4-Inglot AMC 60 [yellow, inner browbone],
5- Day & Night [mixed together, middle of lid].
Maybelline Master Precise, BYS Gel liner [waterline]. Manicare False Lashes.
Lips: Totally a guess, but I am pretty sure it is BYS Champagne Rain

Slightly altered, same as first pic but contrast upped.
In case you are wondering, I wore the same outfit pictured here, as you can see with the 2nd skirt & the peplum top. I found this perfect for this night, as it had been raining almost all day, but by this time it had stopped so it was actually quite humid so I did not get that horrible hot & sweaty feeling.

  1. colorful and wearable. I love this look ashi :)

  2. Omg what lashes are you wearing?! They look amazing! You're so daring to wear such a bright and colourful look out! x

    1. Thank you darling. I am 99.9% sure they are by Manicare, I bought them many years ago now, but they are quite hard to work with. They do remind me of the Eyelure Katy Perry Oh, My lashes, though. xx

  3. This is an amazing look. I mainly stick to neutral shadow looks with sometime branching out with a little bit of colour. I wish I was this adventurous with Eyeshadow. Might have to try this out for fun :)

    1. Thank you doll. Even if you slowly build up using more colour by playing with makeup before bed, you might start to get more confident as you practice, and just go off videos :) xx

  4. Very pretty and bold eyeshadow!

  5. Gorg! I've been playing a bit more with colors but I think I can do better! Love the colors, I've got lots but haven't dabbled as much, I must force myself to do so soon!! Great job and glad you got to go out and flaunt the look! ^^
