Beautiful Creatures Inspired Make-up (Dedicated too Inez) & Two Reviews

Firstly had like to give my apologies for my mush being on your screen. I do not take photo's of myself because I'm not a very photogenic person. I take photo's i am NEVER in them. But for months now the wonderful Inez has wanted me too do a make-up look (something else I'm not very good at) and she asked again so i decided to do one for her. During this conversation we actually was speaking about Beautiful Creatures so i thought that would be the look i would aim for. So of course i used mainly Barry M, (due to winning the Beautiful Creatures competition with them and the make up being very much inspired in shades by Beautiful Creatures) some Rimmel and a little Benefit & MUA.

Make up that was used is:

  • Rimmel - Wake me up foundation in ivory.
  • Rimmel - Matte powder in peach glow.
  • Barry M - Natural dazzle bronzer.
  • Barry M - Eyeshadow in shades E2 (black with shimmer) E4 (purple) and E6 (green). (sorry the photo of my eye's not great - bad lighting)
  • No7 - Stay perfect eyeshadow in innocence for a base.
  • Mascara's - Benefit they're real & Rimmel london lash accelerator endless mascara (yes two lol)
  • Lipgloss - Make up academy doin good lip boom & Barry M Lip gloss wand in toffee.
I used two different shades of lip products because in majority of the film Lena's look is simple and neutral but in parts of it when the films dark and gloomy there's stages of a dark look which is where the doin good lipstick comes in.

Benefit ther're real mascara

I got this free in this month's Elle magazine, I was really excited because have never tried Benefit before and have heard so much about them has a brand all positives. I really like the mascara it lengthened my lashes beautifully ideally i would of preferred more volume wise because i felt they stuck together a little in places. The only negative for me is the wand, the brush is so large considering the size of the pot it being only a mini and i don't dare get it anywhere near my bottom lashes which is why Rimmel mascara came in. This costs £9.00 at most stores that sell Benefit but i go it free.

Barry M lip gloss wand in toffee

I really like this it doesn't bring a whole lot of colour to the lips, it's very neutral and glides on really smoothly making it perfect for everyday use. It's not sticky and has quite a glossy feel to it. And the scent is so amazing. The wand is just your average wand.
