VAMP MAKEUP TAKING HOLLYWOOD BY STORM….

Hello everyone, sorry for the rather dramatic title for the blog but I just wanted to emphasis the impact vamp makeup is making past the 31st October. Vamp makeup associated with Vampires Vampire makeup do you get where I`m trying to go with this. I first noticed vamp makeup on Khloe Kardashian and I love how she balanced the intensity of it as you need some skill for that !

However this is not to say only Khloe can rock vamp lips you can too. In terms of what is currently trending from vampire makeup, vamp lips are currently being taken. In terms of colors vampire lips are usually dark black, purple,red,brown and possible grey. However all these colors must be in a dark shade to achieve the vampire inspired look.  I recently came across an article which charted lots of recent celebrities charting vamp lips, I hope it inspires some ideas within you. The hyperlink for this is below:

Below is a picture of a beautiful presentation of vampy lips using Mac`s “sin” lipstick:


I personally think its so classy and beautiful , however it can be occasionally overwhelming so its important to find the best colour that suits you ! In general a dark lipliner pencil normally needs to be draw on your lips before applying the lipstick of your preference.

This photo by NYX beautifully embraces the colours :

Ombre..Olay..Ombre Ombreee

Hello everyone, unless you’ve been hiding behind a rock for the past year, you will be aware that Ombre has taken the Hair and Beauty Industry by storm !, Ombre ranges from Ombre cupcakes to lipsticks to Hair. Firstly what exactly is Ombre ? This question has made me curious for a long time. The word Ombre is a  French term meaning “shaded.” Usually a multicolored stripe, with colors graduating from light to dark. The color effect is woven into the fabric. Generally produced by arranging different tones in the warp.

The photo below makes this obvious :

Ombre hair does not have to be necessarily blond, but purple, red too.

However Ombre makeup  roots are actually  more associated from drag queens ( yeah I know right), drag queen makeup is famous for defining the lips so they look larger than natural. Ombre lips do portray the French dip dye effect, so Ombre lips typically go from dark to light or vice versa. Elle magazine recommends using neon brights or even clashing hues such as orange and pink but you can also play it safe with colours of the same family. I personally prefer the devilish red lips or nude lips ombre lips due to my complexion.

Ombre lips are very easy to create , you will need :

1. A dark lip liner pencil (colour of your choice)- this is ESSENTIAL

2. A bright lipstick, old glossy lipsticks or lip glosses will do too

3. A lip brush

4. Concealer or foundation, mostly I have found concealer is better to work with

3. A corner of a hot towel ( to wipe off dry skin off your lips before starting)

Due to technical difficulties I am not able to upload photos of me creating the look but I will give a written tutorial below on how to create Ombre Lips.

Firstly make sure your lips are not dry, dip a corner of a hot towel around your lips getting ride of any dry skin.

Secondly, get the lipstick and apply on your lips. Paying attention to the corners.

Thirdly, take the darker lip liner pencil define your lips draw the bottom lips first starting outside then drawing in, make sure to draw in not out otherwise you will end up looking like a clown. Repeat the same process on the upper lips.

Fourthly, using the lip brush blend the two colours, making sure that the darker lip pencil colour still sticks out.

Finally, use the concealer to blend around your lips, to neaten up ! Sometimes if the colour is too overwhelming for me I put some concealer in the middle of my lips, a tiny amount only though.
