Eyes using Naked 2 & Undress me too palette

  1. Use a white or cream shadow as a base and apply it all over the lid. For this i used Foxy from Naked 2.
  2. Take a deep purple and blend it all across the lower lash line and then up through the crease blending it outwards into a subtle flick. I used Busted from Naked 2
  3. Take a gold highlighter or glitter and apply a small streak in the middle of the lower lash line. I used Illamasqua illuminator in Glimmer.
  4. Highlight the inner corner of the eye with a shimmery white or silver and blend a light brown through the rest of the lid. I used Verve from Naked 2 on the inner corner and a mixture of lavish and obsessed from the Undress me palette across the lid.
  5. Line the whole eye top and bottom and go out into a flick in the corner with a black liner. I used Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner for this.
  6. Finally apply fake eyelashes, coat your bottom lashes and the falsies with mascara. Then as a finishing touch darken the tail of your eyebrow with the gel liner. I used Red cherry lashes in DW and volume flash mascara from Rimmel

  3. Take the lip liner and colour in the edges of the lips and blend in with the lipstick
  4. Finally take a highlighter on concealer and pat it in the center of the lips. I used Illamasqua concealer.

Limecrime velvetines review & dupe!

There has been a lot of hype over Limecrime’s new velvetine lipsticks which come in two shades, Suedeberry which is a coral colour and Red velvet which is a very deep red. For anyone that isn’t aware of velvetines, they are Limecrimes new lipsticks that go on like a lipgloss and dry completely matte. Everyone has been raving about them and they looked amazing so i had to buy one, which was a slight struggle because due to the popularity it had sold out everywhere. But eventually I managed to find myself one at Cocktailcosmetics.co.uk I purchased Suedeberry which including p&p came to about £16. So when it arrived i was super excited and couldn’t wait to put it on, the packaging was beautiful, the lipstick itself is quite small but I personally don’t mind so much. It’s easy to apply, drys fast and the colour is beautiful but you may need to apply a few layers to make the colour a bit more bolder. Now this lipstick claims to be long lasting but if you drink a lot of hot drinks like me then that will not be the case. After drinking a hot drink or eating food that is slightly greasy the lipstick will just smudge and wear away which i wasn’t happy about but i cant complain to much because the best way to remove this lipstick is with oil, so in a sense its doing its job but it doesn’t make it any less annoying when i have lipstick smudged all around my mouth and have to keep re-applying if i need to eat or drink.  I haven’t yet used a lipstick sealer over the top so it may stay put after that so i will have to let you all know. So in all the packaging, the colour, application and finish is beautiful and i would highly recommend the only thing as i said i don’t like is that for me it isn’t long lasting.

Now also when i put it on for the first time it reminded me of a lipstick that i already owned and that is Rimmel in Kiss me 140. The colour is pretty much identical if there is any difference in colour i would say Limecrime is a bit more pinky and the Rimmel is more orange. The finish is pretty much the same the Rimmel is a velvet finish like the Limecrime but Rimmel has the slightest bit of sheen. The price however is a fair bit different to Limecrime I purchased the lipstick for £6 and you can get it from most places, Superdrug, Boots, Savers etc. This also for me is extremely long lasting compared to Velvetines.

So if you don’t mind paying for Limecrime i would definitely recommend it it is a very beautiful lipstick but isn’t long lasting but if your’e looking for a cheaper lipstick that does the same then i would also highly recommend Rimmel its a lot cheaper, beautiful colour and long lasting.
