MakeUp Birmingham

..Bold Eyes;

Seen on: Versace, Chanel, Christian Dior, Donna Karen.

The Look.

Using either metallic shades of gold silver and bronze or neon bright’s to create a strong, block colour look teamed with a 60′s vibe winged eyeliner. Simply prep and prime your lid with your choice of eyeshadow primer then apply colour from the lashline to the brow fanning the shape out slightly to create a winged effect.

Keep your hair simple and your lips nude and let your eyes do the talking.

Nude Makeup; 

Seen on Versace, Alexander McQueen, Rick Owens

The Look

Minimal effort and products required, just concealer to hide any imperfections and dark circles, a little tinted moisturiser or BB cream applied with your fingertips and a light dusting of powder…thats it.  This look is all about natural velvety skin so no shimmer here.  Bleached eyebrows were also featured, do not attempt this yourself at home!

Soft Grunge;

Seen on Versace, Diane Von Furstenberg, Marni, Phillip Lim

The Look

Dirty up your smokey eyes by making the liner a little more smudgy (like you have just got home from the night before) and clump your mascara.  Keep your hair loose and tousled and apply dry shampoo to give it that undone sexy look.

Lining of the lower lid only featured heavily on the catwalk, be aware this can drag your eye down visually and make you look tired (not in a sexy way) a small hint of on trend pink toned blush will balance the look well and keep a hint of girlishness under your cool grunge chick exterior.


Seen on Giules, Dries Van Noten, Donna Karan

Strip back all other makeup and show off a pop of colour on either your cheeks or lips. Pink is this season on trend colour so a sexy Nikki Minaj style lip looks incredible.

60’s Glamour;

As seen on Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Moschino.

The look.

Flawless velvety skin, retro bold black liner and va va voom lashes all make a comeback.  Hair should be big and bee hived!  Groovy Baby yeah!!!!
