Models Own Chestnut Kohl Pencil Tutorial

Hello everybody ūüôā

Firstly, thank you soo much for my followers who have been giving me feedback and commenting/liking my posts it really means a lot to me, please feel free to give me any sort of feedback you feel about my posts or any suggestions on what I should post. Today`s blog posting is centered around a gift I received its the “Models Own Kohl Eyeliner Pencil”, Models Own is a British company that has a lot of branches around the world but is vastly expanding in the middle east particularly in places such as Saudi Arabia and Dubai, they`re products contain a vast range of nail polishes as well as a makeup range. I really like the pencil, particularly the chestnut color, I like the thought of a potential sultry embellished look. So i decided to experiment a little bit and use it as a tool to sharpen my eyebrows.

The products I used to complete my look were the following (in order of usage):

1.Models Own Kohl Chestnut Eyeliner Pencil  (3.99 Pound Sterling)

2.Revlon Photo Ready Concealer

3.Mini Bourjois (light brown) Mascara

4.The Body Shop Extra Virgin Mineral loose powder shade- 102 natural ivory

Eyebrow Tutorial

1. Make sure your face is dry and clean below is a photo of me without any makeup on at the start.

3. Start by using a brush or in my case the smudger to align next to your nose so you have an idea of where the edges of your eyebrows are. In addition, you could line the brush to an approximately 65 degree angle if that is easier !

4. Use the pencil and do gentle pencil strokes from the beginning of your eyebrow to the ends depending on your eyebrows. I have quite bushy eyebrows so for me 2 strokes of the pencil was enough to maintain a natural but stylish look, for thinner eyebrows you should shape accordingly. Ideally you want the inner part of your brow to be thicker, then taper to a thinner line as it goes toward your temple.

5. I then used the smudge part of my pencil (or the brush) ,to smooth over my brows and blend in the pencil.

7. Because my hair is distinctively dark and so are my eyebrows I used a little bit of Bourjous mascara to lighten my eyebrows.

6. This is optional but you could use a nude lighter shade of an eye-shadow palette to highlight your brow underneath.For instance the nude colors in the Naked 2 palette would be perfect. I used a concealer to just roughly blend underneath my brow bones.

7. Just to finish off I applied a little splash of powder over my eyebrows to give it a fresher and natural look ! I used a loose foundation powder but it doesn’t really matter which one you use just that it should not darken or lighten the eyebrows just give it a hint of freshness.

8. Thats it ! I hope you enjoyed the mini tutorial that I created ūüôā Here is the final look

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 ‚Äúshaded.‚ÄĚ 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.
