Summer Sunset - Contest Entry for

This is being posted a little later than expected so sorry about that. Okay so on with the look. I love the competitions that hold. I always get excited when there's a new one. I love entering them and each theme always gives me new ideas for looks.
This competition is a summer themed contest in which you have to focus on the lips. I wanted to incorporate this summers trending colors. I did some research and the colors that i thought would look interesting was coral and mint green. I think these colors are beautiful together and contrast really well making the other pop. They remind me of a sunset during summer when the sky starts to turn pink and orange. So if you like the look keep on reading to find out how i did it :)

On the eyelid I applied Inglot's D.S eyeshadow in 467 which is a slightly pink toned nude that had some sparkle in it.I took Inglot's AMC Shine eyeshadow in 15 which is an orange/coral colour with a gold sheen. I applied this to the outer corner and sweeping it into the crease. I used just a random frosted white shadow that I don't know the name of and applied it to the inner corner and to the brow bone. 

I took a mint green liner and applied it to the lower lash line then I went over that with a mixture of Inglot's D.S eyeshadow in 504 and Barry M's Mint Green and winged it out with the liner.

For the lips I used the same mint green liner to line the lips and blend it in slightly and set it with the Mint Green from Barry M but left the centre for the the Inglot AMC Shine 15 and blended the edges.

This is my final look. Please if you guys can vote for my look on I would really appreciate it :) Hope you all enjoy :D

The Avengers Series: Captain America

OK so for my first blog post I wanted to start with an Avengers Assemble look. This is going to be the first of many series that I'm gonna do (trust me there might be a lot. haha).
So anyway this is my Captain America look. I went to see the movie today and this was the makeup that i wore. I wanted the colours to be very vibrant and noticeable. For anyone that doesn't know me I am colour mad and colour theory mad.  Just on a side note the movie was awesome and the Hulk was hilarious.

I love looks like this and would wear it out (which I did) .So if you like vibrant, in your face looks this is one is for you and there will be many more to come. I want each look to represent each one of the Avengers whether it be a certain symbol or colours or just elements of the character. So this one was obviously the star that is on Captain Americas's shield.

This is the full look. I went for the red lip to tie in with the red on the eye. It's bold and makes it look more intense.
A nude glossy lip also suits the look. It will keep the focus on the eyes which is what i wore for the rest of the day. Also the Picture below was where i pull the most inspiration.
