FFF: Golden Electric Blue EOTD

Friday, 8 August 2014

So I managed to get some free time to do a quick EOTD!

I felt inspired by the blue in the previous guest post from Annie (check the post here) but teamed it with a neutral golden eyeshadow instead, with just a pop of blue on the lower lash line with electric blue on the waterline.. Hope you enjoy and feel inspired <3

Products used:
> UDPP - Eden
> Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette - Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Champagne Truffle

> Illamasqua Neutral Quad palette - all colours used
> Motives Mineral Gel eyeliner - Little Black Dress
> Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencils - Perversion, Electric, Ransom & Deviant 

> Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet mascara
> LA Girl Pro Conceal concealer - Creamy Beige
> Eldora False Eyelashes - H151

After priming the eyes, I buffed Salted Caramel and Milk Chocolate from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette into my crease, blending upwards. I intensified the crease using Wolf and Obsidian from the Illamasqua Neutral palette, followed by patting on Vintage to the middle of the eyelid and Creme Brulee from the Chocolate Bar palette further inwards. I highlighted the inner corner of the eye with Champagne Truffle and the brow bone with White Chocolate and Stealth from the Neutral palette.

I decided to not go with my usual eyeliner extended flick style, and kept the wing short using Motives Gel Eyeliner in LBD.
I then lined the inner top waterline with Perversion eye pencil and the bottom with Electric. I then used a mixture of Ransom & Deviant on the lower lashline, blending slightly down.

To finish the look I concealed around the eye area with LA Girl Pro Conceal in Creamy Beige and applied Eldora False Eyelashes in H151, using the Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet Mascara to blend the lashes and slightly coat the bottom lashes.

I hope you enjoyed this look, hopefully next time I get to do a full FOTD!

Tuesday Takeover: Epiphannie A

Tuesday, 5 August 2014

Hi my loves,

It's been a while since I've posted but I promise to be back soon! 
In the mean time I asked the lovely Annie (of Epiphannie A) to write a guest post for me. Annie is another great blogger and friend (who also attended one of my masterclasses, and blew me away with her makeup skills may I add) and she happily took this opportunity to conjure a gorgeous bright makeup look perfect for this hot summer we're having this year! Hope you enjoy the post and do check out her blog too <3

Sleek Rio Rio Palette
Hey everyone!!

I’m Annie from Epiphannie A and let me just start off by saying that I’m so grateful that Safiyah has allowed me to have some room on her blog today – I actually feel really special – I wasn’t too sure what I wanted to talk about but I just knew that I wanted it to appear natural and fit in seamlessly with the tone of this blog . . . which is why I’ve decided to opt for a makeup tutorial (despite the fact that I haven’t post a makeup look in AGES!!).

For this tutorial, I will be using the recently released Sleek Rio Rio Divine Palette which is a gorgeous palette filled with highly pigmented, tropical shades mixed with tuned down champagne shades

1)    I start off by blending Tropics; a matte orange-brown shadow shade, in and above my crease to act as my transitional colour.

2)    Once I’m happy with the way that looks, I pat a bit of Leme; dark royal blue, into the inner corners and outer corners of my eyes, leaving the inner section of my eyelid free for my to add Cachaca; a silver eye shadow.

3)    As I want this look to have a bit of tropical feel, I’m going to go over Cahaca with a lime green eye shadow aka Caipirinha

4)    I’m now going to add Leblon (matte black) eye shadow into my vee area to give my look a bit of definition

5)    Once that’s all done, a spot of eyeliner and false lashes are all you need to complete this look.

I really hope you enjoy this tutorial as I have had a lot of fun making it. Don’t forget to visit on my blog – I’m really fun (On certain days of the week lol)
