Eylure – Enchanted Limited Collection – Power Flower

IMG_7714

Wispy, lightweight eye lashes that create a naturally but full look!

These lashes balance volume with length due to the mix of long and short lashes. As they’re spaced out and not compacted into a black block, these are stunning for use with daily outings and events without making you look over done – subtle but noticeable. They’re wispy and very lightweight which makes them comfortable to wear, and the band flexes easy allowing a better fit to your natural lash line.

As with all Eylure eyelashes – these come with the adhesive included. The thing I love about Eylure’s adhesive is that it comes with an easy to use applicator to allow precise application of the glue due to its flat and tapered end!

These are very easy to apply and remove – I can apply these using my fingers alone or along with a pair of tweezers, or using the Eylure applicator tool.

Bottom Line: These eyelashes are perfect for a daytime event, or for everyday wear as opposed to their more glamorous, fuller luxe collection eye lashes.

Eylure – Luxe Collection False Eyelashes – Trinket

FullSizeRender

A beautifully, wispy, full length lashes!

As you know I am a huge fan of the Eylure and Fleur De Force collaboration eyelashes, so I decided to try some others from the Eylure range as I wanted to have a bit of variety with my falsies to suit a wide range of my makeup looks.

The first thing I noticed about the Luxe range, is that they’re advertised as their more premium lashes, with faux mink effect, to add a dash of cruelty free glamour! As they’re premium, they come with a higher price tag – but so does everything else so no surprise there. The one thing I noticed about these eyelashes is that the range is a lot more thin and wispy than the others which I found to be thick and cumbersome.

This style I feel is the best for a light glam look where you’re worried your lashes will hide in your eyeliner in photos, as they look false, yet not overly so that you look like you’ve just attached two black caterpillars to your eyes…

I also picked up their Luxe Bumble eyelashes which are a lot more va, va, voom than these – so keep your eyes peeled for my review on them! In the meantime, you can catch all my false eyelashes reviews here!

Bottom Line: These eyelashes are easy to apply, and the adhesive included in the package is so simple to use. Gives a wonderful, premium wispy look!

#MOTD: Panic! At The Disco

img_4766

This is my makeup I wore to see Panic! at the Disco at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff!

I started off by tackling my eyebrows – I used my Goof Proof Brow Pencil in Dark to define and shape, and set my brows with the Ready! Set! Brow! clear gel – I’ve stopped using my L’Oreal Brow Artist brow gel when I’m drawing my eyebrows more defined.

For my eyes I did a gold cut crease over a grey smokey eye using my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. For my crease I used Tease from my Naked 2 and blended out – I love using this shade to add warmth to my smokey eyes – and went over with Pistol and Blackout. I cut my crease using my NYX Concealer Jar in CJ01 – Porcelain, which helps define the cut of my crease and eyelid. I layered over the concealer my favourite shade from the Naked 2 – Bootycall!

I then used my Kat Von D Ink Liner in trooper to do wings, and added my false eyelashes – as I didn’t want to go over the top for my gig with large eyelashes,  so I used my subtle Fleur de Force 3/4 lashes from Eylure. I used my Urban Decay Perversion mascara to blend my natural lashes to the falsies.

I did my usual; for my foundation I used the NYX Angel Veil primer to prime my skin ready, and used my NYX Stay Matte Not Flat in Ivory as my base. I used my Bourjois’ Blur The Lines concealer in Ivory under my eyes and as my highlighter. I used Bourjois’ Mat Illusion Bronzer in Hale Clair to define and contour my cheekbones and nose. I set my concealer and foundation using my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Transparent. To add my glow, I used my NYX Strobe of Genius palette in the light gold to highlight  along my cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and temples.

My lipstick is from my Sleek Makeup Matte Me Mini Collection – in the shade Birthday Suit! I then finished off using my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

#MOTD: Stunt Lads

img_4689

This is my makeup I wore to a small family meal whilst I was back in Cardiff!

I started off by tackling my eyebrows – I used my Goof Proof Brow Pencil in Dark to define and shape, and set my brows with the Ready! Set! Brow! clear gel.

For my eyes I did a rose gold smokey eye, using my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, my Clionadh Cosmetics highlighter, and my Sleek i-Divine Eye Palette in Storm. For my crease I used Tease from my Naked 2 and blended out – I love using this shade to add warmth to my smokey eyes. I used the shade Snow Storm to define my inner eye, and as a base for my eyelid and layered Perfect storm on my outer eye lid and blended the two together, to create a transition shade. I layered my Slaine highlighter from Clionadh on top to add the rose gold sparkle to it. I used my Kat Von D Ink Liner in trooper to do wings, and added my false eyelashes – as I didn’t want to go full haul for the meal I used my Fleur de Force 3/4 lashes from Eylure. I used my Urban Decay Perversion mascara to blend my natural lashes to the falsies.

For my foundation I used the NYX Angel Veil primer to prime my skin ready, and used my NYX Stay Matte Not Flat in Ivory as my base. I used my Bourjois’ Blur The Lines concealer in Ivory under my eyes and as my highlighter. I used Bourjois’ Mat Illusion Bronzer in Hale Clair to define and contour my cheekbones and nose. I set my concealer and foundation using my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Transparent. To add my glow, I used my Clionadh Cosmetics Llyr to highlight using both the pink and blue shade – as it matched my top, along my cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and temples.

My lipstick is from my Sleek Makeup Matte Me Mini Collection – in the shade Birthday Suit! As usual, I set it all using my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

#MOTD – Gig time!

img_4366

This is my makeup I wore to see Bring Me The Horizon at the Bournemouth International Centre!

For my eyes I did a cut crease, as they’re my favourite at the moment, using my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. For my crease I used Tease and blended out, and layered Busted over the top and blended that out too. I used the shade Blackout to define the outer corners, and to define my crease.

I whited out my eyelids using my NYX Concealer Jar in CJ01 – Porcelain, which helps define the cut of my crease and eyelid. I set the concealer using my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Transparent. On top of my eyelid I used YDK and Verve– to create a silvery, pale pink shade. I used my Kat Von D Ink liner in Trooper to create a classic wing.

img_4362

I added my falsie, which were my Eylure x Fleur De Force Fleur Loves 3/4 lashes, full review here – these are my fave for not looking OTT! I used my Urban Decay Perversion mascara to blend my natural lashes to the falsies. For my eyebrows I opted to draw them in, using my Benefit Goof Proof pencil in Dark, and my Ready, Set Brow! in clear.

For my foundation I used the NYX Angel Veil primer to prime my skin ready, and used my NYX Stay Matte Not Flat in Ivory as my base. I used my Bourjois’ Blur The Lines concealer in Ivory under my eyes and as my highlighter. I used Bourjois’Mat Illusion Bronzer in Hale Clair to define and contour my cheekbones and nose. I set my concealer and foundation using my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Transparent. To add my glow, I used my NYX Strobe of Genius palette to highlight using the light shimmery shade, 4th shade clockwise from top left, along my cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and temples.

My lipstick is the amazing Studded Kisses by Kat Von D in Magick – I love this lipstick as it is a beautiful shade with a purple tint and glitter!! As usual, I set it all using my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and it lasted the entire gig!

#MOTD: Harley Quinn

img_4269

This is my makeup I wore for my Halloween shift in work – we were doing a fancy dress competition! Seeings as I’m the store manager of an entertainment and gaming store I decided to go as Dr Harleen Quinzel aka Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad.

For my foundation I used the NYX Angel Veil primer to prime my skin ready, and used my NYX Stay Matte Not Flat in Ivory as my base. I used my Bourjois’ Blur The Lines concealer in Ivory under my eyes and as my highlighter. I set my concealer and foundation using my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Transparent. To add my glow, I used my NYX Strobe of Genius palette to highlight using the purple shimmery shade, 3rd shade clockwise from top left, along my cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and temples.

 

For my eyes I first used my Urban Decay eye shadow primer to ensure the shadows didn’t crease during my shift. I mainly used the pink and blues from my MUA Poptastic palette, which is £4 – available here.

Formy dark pink eye I used my Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick  in Outlaw and blended it out, and layered the bright pink shade from my MUA palette over it and blended that out too. I used all four blues in the MUA palette for my other eye, and blended them together to get the correct bright blue that Harley wears. I used my Kat Von D Inked Liner in Trooper to do a standard winged liner to add definition to my eyes, and used Benefit’s Badgal lash eyeliner on my waterline and lower lash line.

img_4256

I added my falsies – this time it was my EYLURE X CHERYL – Girls Night Strip lash – review here! I used my Urban Decay Perversion mascara to make my eyelashes blend. For my eyebrows I opted to not draw them in as Harley’s are more natural looking so instead I used L’Oreal’s Brow Artist Plumper in Dark to define and set them without going over top.

I used my Kat Von D Inked eyeliner in Trooper to draw my heart and ‘Rotten’ on to my face – both set with a fine brush and Blackout from my Naked 2 palette.

My lipstick is the ultimate matte lipstick my Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw – my  favourite blood orange/red shade. I set it all using my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray – to hold it all in place during my 9.5hr shift!

For my eyes I did a cut crease, that wasn’t so darkly defined, using my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. For my crease I used Tease and blended out, and layered Snakebite over the top and blended that out too. I used Blackout to define the outer corners. Using my NYX Concealer Jar in CJ01 – Porcelain, I cut my crease and eyelid, setting it using my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Transparent. On top of my eyelid I used Bootycall – I’m currently obsessed with this shade – it is such a lovely glittery, pale gold shade.

I added my falsies – this time it was my Eylure x Fleur De Force Fleur Loves 3/4 lashes, full review here! I used my Urban Decay Perversion mascara to make my eyelashes blend. For my eyebrows I opted to not draw them in, instead I used L’Oreal’s Brow Artist Plumper in Dark to define and set them without going over top.
