Makeup Monday: 100% GLAM

Hey everyone!

Holla at all of my new followers! Seriously love you guys!

It’s Makeup Monday and I’m pretty excited because if you have been following my makeup Monday’s you will know that last week I wasn’t all that happy with the look I produced! But it is a new week and I am feeling great about this one!

Tadaaa! So yeah I went FULL GLAM! I loved working some glitter into the eyes because it just makes you feel like a princess.

I also used a little more blush than usual to really make my features pop.

I blended my eyeshadow from pink to purple to blue and added matching pink glitter to the inner lid. I also used some of the pink eyeshadow on top of my lipstick and added gloss so I could get the colour match on point. Slightly odd but it works haha!

I look slightly dewy which wasn’t something I was planning on, I’m more of a Matte with Glow gal but hey!

I hope you like this one, and if you do let me know in the comments below! I would also love to know which colours/themes you would like to see more of!

Lots of Love

Makeup Monday: Is it a halo though?!

Hey everyone!

Today I’m going to be sharing a makeup look with you, and I’ve gotta be honest, I’m not sure if I like it. I put a lot of effort into it and on this particular occasion I don’t really feel like it shows!

I really wanted to get a Halo Cut Crease down on the first attempt. I didn’t haha. Obviously, because these things take time.

I do like the look, but compared to the picture in my head it just isn’t living up to my expectations unfortunately!

I wanted to match the white dots I added to my brow line with a white line on my lip. I added some gold glitter to the outer line of that and it ended up looking like I smudged the white everywhere on the photos so that’s another reason why I’m not 100% happy.

I re-applied the white lip line without the glitter and it looks a lot cleaner so that made me feel better!

Obviously though this is the process. Some looks I love and others I learn how to improve them for next time!

I feel like I need to be a bit braver and blend some darker shades into the halo to make the lighter colours pop!

Let me know what you think! Any advice is always greatly appreciated!

Lots of Love

Makeup Monday: Glam On Full

Heyyyyy blogger beauties 😍!

Today is MONDAY and it’s one of my favourite days because I get to upload another makeup look! I wanted to go full glam, in a royal sophisticated kind of way… So the colour ‘royal blue’ seemed to be the obvious choice.

What do you think? Personally I really like this look, and I think the colours fit really nicely with my hair.

I also tried a few curls in my hair to see how that would change my appearance as a whole,

I really like both to be honest with you!

I realised I’m normally quite plain and nude in the lip department but I thought the blues deserved a strong colour to go with them so I went with a deeper plum shade.

I’m 100% planning to re-do my makeup exactly like this when I have a fancy meal or ball to go to.

I have been contemplating starting a YouTube channel for a while now and was wondering what you guys thought of the idea? Would you like seeing step by step videos on how to create these looks?

Could you bare to listen to my Birmingham accent πŸ˜…!

I’d love to hear from you so let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Makeup Monday: White Liner, a Beauty first!🀩

Good Morning! Happy Monday to you all!

I am excited about this post. I am reallllllly excited, because I feel like I have stepped out of my comfort zone with my makeup and done something a little different!

I did a makeup haul recently and I was on the hunt for one item in particular. White Eyeliner. And indeed I found a White Liquid Liner in Superdrug for an amazing Β£3… I mean what a price.

I am a black liner gal through and through. So white was a whole lot different to what I’m used to but I am so happy with my results!

I’m literally in love with this look. It’s my favourite to date. In terms of application I would say you have to go over the white a lot more than you do with black, this could possibly be to do with the price.

Do you like the little dots I put on my nose? I feel like they add a slightly boho touch.

I think the lip colour fits really well with the look as a whole, using my Primark Liquid Lip Kit, again Β£3.

I actually felt a little self conscious going out like this, mainly because you don’t see many people out and about rocking the white liner. But I did it anyway, and I actually got so many compliments! Lots of people said I looked really pretty! Which was really nice because generally I wouldn’t class myself as pretty.

Makeup Monday 09: Revolution Pro Eyeshadow Look

Happy Monday bloggers! + My non blogging readers of course!

I went on a little bit of a makeup spending spree over the weekend and as you saw by my Primark Beauty Haul Post! I like to keep my spends cost effective because as you can imagine makeup can be an expensive habit!

I actually got sucked into a stunning Kiko Cosmetics shop where a single eyeshadow will set you back Β£5.90! The price was reflected in the quality of the makeup, the pigment and texture was out of this world! But if you’re on a budget, luxury has to wait! I will be back though 😏!

Anyway… I picked up this beautiful Revolution Pro Palette for Β£8!

Β£8 FOR 18 SHADES ARE U MAD!

I love all of these shades and will post a swatch pic at some point on my Instagram @lollyhm.fashion

So today it’s only right that I show you an eyeshadow look I created using this palette!

I used shades, Riches, Personal and Discrepancy 😍! I only managed to take a few selfies before we went out so sorry you can’t see the whole eye but I think you get the picture 😏. Here’s a video too…

Who do I think I am haha! Peep the matte lip gloss too from my Primark Nude Lip Kit for Β£3! I think I killed it this month with the bargain buys to be honest!

Let me know what you think!

As always hit that follow button if you think I’m worth it, and if you’re following already, thank you so much I love u 😘!

Makeup Monday 08: Cut Crease on the Horizon!

Holla hollaaa πŸ™‚

Monday means makeup, and to be honest I had a bit of a bad selfie day πŸ™„! But I’m super happy none the less because I have seriously improved my Cut Crease game.

I have been watching YouTube videos in the hope of learning a few tips on how to create the perfect Cut Crease. It’s safe to say I have a long way to go as one of the key ingredients to mastering the perfect Cut Crease is practice!

So I shall keep going!

Here is today’s look! Ya’ll know I love the pinky shades. I just feel like warm tones compliment my complexion. I know I have a long way to go to retrieve my eyeshadow black belt ( yeah I just made that up) but I am willing to put the work in so I can’t see why I won’t be a pro this time next year.

Thought I would go for a pink lipstick and matching gloss for this one to keep it fun! What do you guys think? Also I’ll post the link to the helpful YouTube video I watched at the bottom of this post!

Makeup Monday 07: Glitter Beauty

Good Morning Everyone! I hope your bank holiday is just fabulous!

It is Makeup Monday none the less and today I wanted to show you a glitter look I created!

I wanted to use glitter in an elegant and sassy way so I hope that comes across. I have been working hard on my precision with eyeshadow and also the highlight between my brow and eyelid and I can see some good progress in these photographs!

I blended from pink to gold using the pressed glitter from my Jolie Beauty Palette

I got loads of compliments on both how I looked and the skill of it so yeah 😏 feeling pretty snazzy what can I say!

Let me know what you think of this look!

MAKEUP MONDAY 05: The beauty of eyeshadow.

Hey hey my beauty babes!

I am literally buzzing about this post because I feel like I am on my way to mastering eyeshadow! I am no pro of course and to be honest I am lacking some serious tools and brushes in the beauty department. My collection is close to basic in terms of blenders and applicators.

That just make me more pleased that I was able to create this makeup look yesterday!

I have first blended orange and pink tones into the upper eyelid, before cut creasing THE HELL out of it with some concealer. I then applied some blue tones over the concealed area gradually getting lighter towards the middle. This is the first time I’ve done anything like this so I was super happy with how I did!

I also have a brand new appreciation for the skill that goes into makeup artistry and I hope I will be as good as some of the MUA’s I admire one day!

I kept it nude with the lipstick and added some matching lip gloss to give me a little shine. I obviously had to throw on a blue dress to match!

Of course as there is with anything, I can see room for improvement. But for my first full attempt I think it went surprisingly well!

MAKEUP MONDAY 04: Fruit Salad

HEYYYYY TO ALL MY BEAUTIFUL FOLLOWERS! And hey if you’re new to my blog! I am feeling super happy this week and I think it is because for what seems like the first time in my life, everything is falling into place!

Today I introduce my fruit salad makeup look. And I’m not talking about a bowl of healthy treats, I’m talking about these sweets of course:

So if you didn’t know, now ya know! And if you did know, how good do the taste 😍!

This makeup makes me happy, because it’s vibrant, it matches my complexion, it’s warm and it reminds me of sugar so ya know winning all round! Did you notice my lips are two different shades? It’s pretty funny because to create the bottom shade I used some of the orange eyeshadow over the lipstick I had on πŸ˜‚! I didn’t have the shade I wanted in an actual lipstick and I’m so happy with it because it made the original lipstick into more of a matte finish which is beaut!

I used this Makeup Revolution Palette on my eyes. I literally love their makeup range because having a makeup hobby can actually become really expensive. So I just think they are wonderful to charge so little for products that are so good! Here are the shades I used:

I just love these colours as you can probably tell because I’ve done a similar look in one of my other makeup Monday posts!

I really enjoyed creating this look and sharing it with you guys so let me know what you think of it?

Have you ever done anything weird like putting eyeshadow on your lips? πŸ‘€ Let me know!

If you’re thinking of following then please do! It means so much to me as I am working on making this my part time job!

MAKEUP MONDAY 03: Mermaid πŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Today I am sharing with you my Mermaid Makeup Look!

I’ve got to be honest folks. I’m not 100% pleased with it as a whole. I just feel like I was kind of having a bad makeup/hair day and it didn’t quite live up to my expectations! I thought I would share it with you anyway because there are still some aspects of the look that I do like!

I like the mix of purple, blue and green. I feel like it really does look mermaidy (lol well that word is made up for sure).

I added some gold glitter to the lids to make everything a bit more magical and I think that these colours compliment my hazel eyes.

I was playing around with an app called musically and I came across this beautiful sparkly filter. This blog post has actually made me like the look more as a whole now I’ve reviewed the photographs and thought about it a little 😁! That’s just one of the things I love about blogging. It makes you reflect!

What do you guys think?

I would love to know what other colours or makeup looks you would like to see me try!?

It would mean the world to me if you could follow me if you don’t already! Also my Instagram is @lollyhm.fashion if you’re particularly interested in my photographs!
