Summer Makeup Haul

Hi lovelies!

I recently bought a bunch of things from a local Canadian store and Sephora. I was so excited when I got the packages I just had to share these beauty items with you.

From Sephora:  

stila This stila lipstick is the deluxe sample they were giving out on Canada’s Day, so to get it I bought the Urban Decay Naked Flushed.

naked final Now for the really exciting part. I found this adorable site called FTB Beauty. It sells all these amazing brands that are hard to find in Canada! They recently had a promo code for their Instagram followers, so I had to buy some things.

Summer Ombré Lip

As I enjoy the lazy summer days I thought I would try out an ombré lip for the first time. I only own a nude, and clear lip liner so I decided to use lipsticks to create the look.

NOTE: if you want to wear this lip out, or for a long period of time I recommend using lip liners instead of lipstick.

What I used:

products

Step One:

Conceal your lips

one Step Two:

Carefully outline your lips with the darker lip liner/lipstick (Quince by Bite). It’s okay to mess up a little because your can always conceal it when you’re done

two Step Three:

Okay, I know it seems like I skipped something but this look is super easy. You’re then going to take the lighter lip liner/lipstick (Elusive by Revlon) and fill in the center part of your lips. After rub your lips together for a blended look. Working with lip liners you may have to use a lip brush to blend the colours together.

And you’re all done! Super quick and super easy to achieve 😀

Perfect Smokey Liner

Hello beauties, sorry I haven’t been posting very frequently. To make up for this I decided to try out this super simple smokey liner. I’ve been trying to practice my smokey eye and honestly this look is ten times easier and gives you a similar look to the smokey eye.

Let’s get into the tutorial!

Products Used: 

products

eye 1

  1.  Concealed, primed and patted on “Vanilla” all over the lid. As well as filling in my brows
  2. Take tape and press it on the back of your hands a few times (so it doesn’t pull your skin when you’re taking it off) Try to line the tape with your bottom lash line
  3. Use “Carbon” and the angled brush to draw your wing
  4. BLEND. Add more Carbon onto a blending brush. Keep adding and blending till you have your desired look
  5. Line your lashes
  6. Try to blend the liquid with the shadow
  7. Remove the tape and curl your lashes
  8. Add your favourite mascara, or fake lashes
  9. The final look eye 2 I hope you enjoyed the simple look. If you try it out make sure to tweet me a picture! or post it on Instagram and use #beautybycatherine

The foundation shown in this picture does have SPF but it is low so it’ll still wash you out but not as much as a higher SPF
