Midnight Blue Makeup

I loveeeee this blue! It's not too dark but also not to bright, and it has the perfect amount of shimmer! I covered my lid in the darkest colour and used a slightly lighter shade to blend up above my crease. The white highlight on the inner corners of my eyes really makes the blue POP. I also used the deepest blue on my under eye area to tie the look together. Nude is the best colour lipstick or gloss to pair it with. Hope i gave you some ideas for your next night out :) xx

Egyptian Princess Inspired Eyes

Hellooo, so i'm not sure if any one of you reading this follow me on Instagram @shannoncarlyle, but if you do then you will notice my blog is slightly behind on pictures. A lot of people keep asking me what products I'm using ect.. So I decided it was time to keep on top of things on my blog. I'm in the process of catching up which is why you'll find my posts are more regular. 

Moving on to the juicy stuff... 
I honestly felt like i was channeling my inner Egyptian princess lol, so many wings going on! I wasn't expecting the green to be as bright and more on the pastel side but i went with it. The colour in the palette looked like a deep turquoise. By the way mind my lips, i woke up and they were mega dry, even vaseline didn't smooth that shiz out!

Lip Switch | Day to Night

Hey girls and guys!! I hope you like the looks i created above. I originally wore the first look during the day. The eyes are very simple and natural looking. I ended up going out in the evening but didn't want to redo all my makeup. Instead, i just changed my lip colour. This dark purple shade adds more drama to your overall look and makes you stand out. This would be great for anyone who has plans straight after work or something, but doesn't have time to redo their makeup. You could even change it to a red lipstick, pretty much any brighter colour will make you look more dressed up. Also that's the good thing about the eyes, they will match any lip colour of your choice :) xx

Khaki Trends: Makeup

Khaki green has been one of the most popular colours for spring, and will for sure be going on through summer. I've seen it everywhere from fashion to nails but i haven't seen much inspo for Khaki makeup. For this look i have used earth tones to pair with the green. The eyes look very neutral so i added a bright brown lipstick to finish it off. 


Colourful Rainbow Makeup | Final Jacket

Above is my final jacket that i designed and manufactured for my second year of university. This project was in collaboration with Machine A! My concept was 'fairground' and i had to manipulate this into the Machine A brief. I kept the bright colours to a minimal and decided to influence more of my concept through my styling. 

I wanted to create a grunge/sport feel but with a slight Advant Garde twist. This makeup look is great for anyone wanting to relate their look to a colourful concept or even if you just want to be adventurous! It didn't take many products to create this look, only the base and eyeshadows. Hope i inspired some of you :)

Summer Season Makeup

Orange is such a fresh, vibrant colour, ideal for summer time! Highlighting is also a must, to give you that extra glow. This complete look is probably to much for day time depending on how hot it is, but it would be ideal when your off clubbing in Ibiza. To switch this for the day, maybe a pool party ;) i'd go for tinted moisturiser or even bare faced, add a little water proof mascara, pop on the lipstick and your ready to partyyyy....

Glamours Purple Eyes

Do you ever just sit in your mirror and wonder once your ready, what the hell happened? Not in a bad way of course, but when my mega creative side comes out i tend to do looks which i wouldn't wear out of the house. Suppose it's my way of having fun :) I actually wore the look above to a meal with my boyfriend. The colour is only as noticeable when your eyes are closed or if you blink, so it's a great way to show your fun side without looking like a clown. You can always change up the colours to suit your outfit! If you're wearing such bright colours my fav lipstick option is a nude. It allows all the attention to be on the eyes.

Hey, just a little life update which will effect the frequency of my blogging. I have recently started a 4 week internship with 'Little Black Wardrobe'. They're a new online clothing business specialising in quirky fashion. My role covers everything from design to the manufacturing of the garments. I have also helped with styling, and did the hair and makeup in the above picture for their latest photoshoot. I will upload a post on completion of the internship and share my experience and advice with you. 

I will try to post at weekends if i find time, but i will be back blogging more regular in 3/4 weeks.

Speak soon xxxx
