Step By Step Make Up Tutorial

The smokey eye is always something people fear, but starting with a simple brown smokey eye is the easiest way to build your confidence. So here is an easy step by step tutorial on how to achieve it :)

Products Used-
The HD Brows Palette in the colour "Foxy"
Rimmel Volume Flash The Max Mascara in the colour Ultra Black 3
L'Oreal Paris Superliner Blackbuster

Step 1- Firstly I cover the lid with the colour "Dark Blonde" using a fluffy brush to even out skin tone.

Step 2- Using the same fluffy brush I use the colour "Medium Brown" to define the crease and create a triangle shape on the outside of my lid.

Step 3- With an under eye shadow brush, take the "Dark Blonde" shadow and line the lower lashes from the middle of the eye to the tear duct. With the same under eye shadow brush, take the "Medium Brown" shadow and line the lower lashes from the outside of the eye to the middle and blend both colours together.

Step 4- Using a fluffy brush and the colour "Carbon" darken the triangle shape you created with the "Medium Brown" shadow and blend all colours together so there are no harsh lines.

Step 5- With the L'Oreal Paris Superliner, line above your top lashes. 
TOP TIP- to keep your liner lasting all day, layer the "Carbon" shadow on the top using an angled brush to set the liquid liner.

Step 6- Use the highlighter from the HD Brows Palette in the inner corner of the eyes and on your brow bone for a professional effect.

Step 7- Coat your top and bottom lashes with mascara and your look it complete! 
TOP TIP- to make a more dramatic look, apply some fluttery false lashes and apply a black kohl liner in the top and bottom waterline. You also don't need this exact palette to create this look, you can adapt it with other shadows you have at home!

I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial!!

Professional Beauty 2014

So guys, on the 24th February my Mum and I attended Professional Beauty at ExCel London. I was very excited as the HD Brow's team kindly invited me for a preview and tour of their new make up collection, which will be launched in the Spring. It is going to consist of 76 key pieces, which will include lip, skin, eye and brow products.

 A lovely lady called Tissy did my eye makeup, which I LOVED! She used the new 'Vamp' eye shadow palette which was absolutely amazing! I will definitely be getting my mits on this when it's launched as it has the most beautiful cranberry shades, I cannot wait to show you guys! I also really loved that all the eye shadow palettes come in colours that complement each other, which is great if your not good at knowing what colours should go together. I think these palettes are going to retail for around £25.00, which I personally think is a really reasonable price for 5 eye shadows.

I can't wait to try more of the HD Brows make up range when it is launched in the Spring! I had such a great day and the HD Brows team were all so lovely. And a big thank you to Brett for doing such an amazing job on my brows :) 

I really hope you enjoyed this post!
