Rihanna – Wild Thoughts Inspired Makeup Look

Hello there beautiful people! Summer is almost at an end here in Namibia and I therefore decided that I need to do one more summer makeup look, before it is actually officially over.  I chose to create a Rihanna inspired makeup look from her music video Wild Thoughts, because I think it is the perfect summer look and I absolutely LOVE the color combo.  It is something I wouldn’t normally create and wear, but I need to step out of my comfort zone a little bit and I loved how it turned out.  Also, I do know that this is not the exact shade she used for her look, but it was the closest I could find in my makeup kit.  Without further ado, here is how you can create this makeup look:

All the colors I used are from the ELF Little Black Beauty Book (Warm Edition) Palette.

The eye makeup

I started off by filling in my eyebrows with the Catrice Eye Brow Stylist Pencil in the shade Date with Ash-ton.

I then applied the LA Girl Concealer all over my eyelid to prep my eyes and then set the concealer with some translucent powder.

I started off by applying the main color, which is this teal shade all over my eyelid.

I then took this black color and applied this onto the outer corners of my eyes and blended it out.

To darken the look a little bit, I further went in with this brown color and applied this in the crease area and extended it upwards.

I then applied the Essence lash Princess Mascara to my top lashes.

After I finished my face makeup, I went back to my eyes and just put a bit of the teal shade, followed by the black shade under my lash line and applied the Essence Lash Princess Mascara to my bottom lashes as well.

 

The Face Makeup

I started by applying my foundation and used the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 220 (Natural Beige)

I then went in with my concealer and used the LA Girl Pro Conceal Concealer in the shade Creamy Beige.

To set my foundation I used the Yardley Absolute Translucent Loose Powder.

I then did my contour with the Absolute New York Pro Contour Palette and used the Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder in the shade Light Infusion only on the bridge of my nose.

For blush I used the Jordana Blush Powder in the shade Rose Silk.

For my lips I used the Wet n Wild Lipstick in the shade Cherry Frost.

And that concludes this makeup look.  I hope you love this look as much as I do.

Until next time!

Old School Glam Prom Makeup Look

This is my third and final prom inspired look and this is definitely my favorite out of the three looks that I created.  I like to call this the old school glam look, mostly because of the red lips.  This makeup look is therefore for my girls that likes a bold lip.   I really hope this little prom series on my blog has been useful in helping you make your day extra special.  I do have a prom tips and tricks post, as well as two other prom inspired makeup looks on the blog, so be sure to check those out as well.  I kept my face makeup the same, so I did not include it in this post, but you can check it out here.

The eye makeup

For this look I used the ELF Little Black Book (Warm Edition) Palette.

  • I started off by applying my concealer all over my eyelid, just to give it an even color.
  •  I then applied a beige color all over my eyelid, just to set the concealer.
  • I then went in with this light brown shade and applied it in the crease and worked it towards the inner corner, as well as the outer corner of my eyelid.
  • Next I applied a darker brown color and again applied it in the crease as well as the inner and outer corners of my eyelid.
  • I then took this plum color and applied it to the same areas.  You also just want to make sure to blend everything out as you apply it.
  • I then went in with this copper color and also applied it to the same areas.  This time I focused more towards the center of the eyelid.
  • To finish the look I applied a little bit of this shimmery color on the center of my eyelid and simply used my finger to dab it on the eyelid.
  • I then applied the Essence Lash Princess Mascara to my top and bottom lashes and took the darker brown shade and placed that under my lash line.

 

The gorgeous red color on my lips is the Wet n Wild lipstick Cherry Frost Silk Finish Lipstick.

This is the finished makeup look:

And that concludes this makeup look, as well as the little prom series I have been going on, on my blog.  I might do it again next year and include some hairstyles as well. Do let me know if that is something you would be interested in seeing.

Thank you so much for stopping by…until next time!

Soft and Elegant Prom Makeup Look

I am back with another prom makeup look and this time around I went for a softer look.  This is for my girls that don’t want too much going on, on the eyes, but still want a bit of glitter, because it is after all prom – the time to get all glitzy and glamour (even if it is just a little bit).  I did a previous post on tips and tricks for prom, so if you haven’t already, be sure to go check it out here.  I did not include the face makeup this time around, because it is the same routine as in my previous prom makeup post which you can find here.

The eye makeup

For this look I used the ELF Little Black Book (Warm Edition) Palette.

  • I started off by applying some of the Essence Stay Natural Concealer as a base to ensure the makeup stays and to have an even tone over the eyelid.
  • I then applied a beige color all over my lid just to set the concealer.
  • Next I applied this light brown shade all over my lid and focused it on the outer corner of my eye and took it up to my crease, as well as the inner corners of my eyes. Be sure to blend this in to make sure the color is diffused.
  • I then went in with a darker brown color and this I applied on the same areas as the light brown shade.
  • To add more definition I added this black color also on the same areas and blended everything together.
  • I finished off the look by applying this shimmery color on the eyelid.
  • I then applied the Essence Lash Princess Mascara (I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I am going to say it again, I LOVE this mascara.) You can absolutely add some false eyelashes; I decided to just add the mascara.

 

For my lips I used the Essence Long lasting Lipstick in the shade Barely There.

And this is the finished makeup look:
