Bold and Glowing Makeup Tutorial!

It was one of those days where I told myself I was going to do a pretty, subtle makeup look…yet somehow ended up with teal blue lips. I had some new products that I hadn’t found the time to really play with so the subtle makeup was promptly thrown out the window and instead I created a bold, glowing look with clashing colours. Honestly, this isn’t a look that I could wear out, not unless I was going to fancy dress party, but it was definitely fun to do and despite the odd colour combinations I actually liked the outcome!


I did my eyes first for once as I was using the Revolution Soph X Eyeshadow Palette which I knew had quite a lot of fallout. Since buying this palette I’ve only used it once so I was pretty excited to experiment with the other colours.

  • First I primed my lips with my trusty Urban Decay Original Primer Potion.
  • Then with a Spectrum fluffy brush, I used the shade Peaches for my transition.
  • Next, I dipped into Strawberry Sweets and applied this to my outer corners and blended it up into the crease.
  • I then used Petrol and pressed this onto the outer and inner corners of my eyes.
  • Using the shade Pine Tree I applied this to the centre of my lid.
  • Lastly, I used Luna from the ABH Aurora Palette and with a small Spectrum brush patted this in my inner corners.
  • I then attempted to create a wing with the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, I can never seem to create a decent wing!
  • For mascara, I used my favourite Benefit BADGal Bang mascara and applied just one coat.

For my lipstick, I used the ABH Liquid Lipstick which I recently purchased in the shade Requiem. I had been lusting over this colour for ages but knew I wouldn’t be brave enough to wear it! It’s a really pretty, metallic teal blue shade and I love it. It’s my favourite part of this whole look. I’m making it my goal to be brave enough to wear this lipstick out in public.

Finished Look:

    I love this look!!! I’m the same – i always say I’m going to do a natural look and it NEVER happens hahahah? Also, how fab is the Soph palette – I kept on telling myself I didn’t need it, but then it accidently slipped into my basket a few months ago and I’m very glad it did ;). And I totally agree with you about that brow pomade – I really wanted to love it but I did really struggle with it – I end up just adding a few drops on bio-oil to it when I use it to make it easier to use!!xxx
