2014 #FIFAWorldCup Inspired MakeUp #3 - GERMANY





Through Beauty Eyes 2014 FIFA World Cup Inspired Make Up - GERMANY



I am putting my bet (not literally) on Germany to win this World Cup although they are currently sitting on a draw at 49 minutes as I write up the post!


EYES 

Urban Decay Primer Potion 
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk 
Dolly Wink Eyebrow Pencil
Benefit Australia They Are Real Liner
 Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil in Black

STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:
 2014 #FIFAWorldCup Inspired MakeUp - GERMANY



1. After applying my Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer and NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (this would intensify the bright colours and keep them in place), gently pack on the any vibrant yellow eyeshadow from your collection (I am using Illamasqua Powder Eyeshadow in Hype from the Fundamental palette) across the inner third of your upper lid.

2. Then, apply a matte brown eyeshadow (mine is from LILY LOLO Mineral Cosmetics) on the outer third of my lid and along my crease and meet the end of my yellow eyeshadow (leaving the centre part of my lid free).

3. This is probably the hardest step and if you're fairly new with makeup, maybe apply your foundation after you have done the eyes. Apply your blackest eyeshadow (using Black Dog from my Urban Decay Black Palette), creating a "V" at the outer corner of my lid (make sure the "V" is smaller than the area of the matte brown eyeshadow!) and slowly blend them together.

4. Finally gently pack on the brightest red eyeshadow you have on the centre of lid (I am using I Nuovi Eyeshadow in Siren Red ) and blend all three colours together. Gently. You may need to go back and reapply the yellow & red eyeshadows as they might lose some intensity whilst blending!


5. I used Benefit Australia's new #BenefitRealLiner on my upper lashline and Milani's Liquif'eye Pencil Eyeliner in Black to line my lower lashline. I then set it with the same Black Dog eyeshadow and to soften to look. 

6. To finish off, apply a few generous coat of your favourite mascara. As always, you have the option to apply falsies to further intensify the look.

2014 #FIFAWorldCup Inspired MakeUp #2 - Netherlands


Howdy! 

How are we with the whole world cup fever? I bet many of your body clocks are going through a roller coaster ride at the moment - in a way, I am glad my football-obsession-days were over! ;)



N E T H E R L A N D S  is the second instalment of this series - just in time before the Socceroos V Netherlands match tonight! 

If you have missed the first instalment for Brazil, check it out HERE

This look is way more straight forward and easier to create compared to the Brazil look! :)

INGLOT Freedom Palette & NYX Eyeshadow in Africa
These are the colours/ palettes I used to create this look but as per always, feel free to make use of whatever colours you have in your stash - all the colours you need today are Orange, Matte Coral Red, Matte Peach (to blend) and a black eyeshadow.

 EYES 

Urban Decay Primer Potion 
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk 
Face of Australia Eye Brow Kit 
Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil in Black
Dolly Wink Volume Mascara in Black 
ORANGE (#1) | NYX Eyeshadow in Africa
MATTE CORAL RED (#2) | INGLOT Freedom Palette
MATTE PEACH (#3) | INGLOT Freedom Palette
BLACK Eyeshadow | Urban Decay The Black Palette in Black Dog

STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:

2014 #FIFAWorldCup Inspired MakeUp - Netherlands



1. After applying the eyeshadow primer and cream eyeshadow (I used NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk), gently pack on the orange (#1 in photo - NYX Eyeshadow in Africa) across the first 2/3 of your upper lid and 1/3 of the inner corner of your lower lashline. 

2. Then, apply a matte coral red eyeshadow (#2 in photo from my INGLOT freedom palette), creating a "V" at the outer corner of my lid.

3. This is where the magic happens, pick up some of the matte peach colour (#3 in photo from my INGLOT freedom palette) using your blending brush and apply it across your crease, blending the orange and matte coral red eyeshadow together to remove all harsh lines. 

4. Using an angled brush and pack on the black eyeshadow, line 2/3 of your lower lashline and wing it out. I reapplied at least 3 times to give a smokier effect, to balance out the bright colours on my upper lid. 

5. As for the upper lashline, I just tight lined using Milani's Liquif'eye Pencil Eyeliner to make my lash appear fuller. I skipped the liquid liner step as I think it would be a little overkill with the bright lids. 

6. To finish off, apply a few generous coat of your favourite mascara.


 As an alternative, you can always add on falsies to give a more dramatic effect. I think my HG Dolly Wink Volume Mascara does its job pretty well. ;)

2014 #FIFAWorldCup Inspired MakeUp #1 - Brazil

So, World Cup fever doesn’t necessarily have to revolve around the actual soccer ball (or football) itself.

 Especially for us chicas, the FIFA world cup gives us more reasons to rock bright and colourful looks during the tournament. (Not that we need any reasons to – but as I grow older, I tend to stay on the “safe side” and haven’t been exploring colourful FOTD as much as I used to do. Is it just me or are there anyone else with me? :P) 

So,after a random playtime and experiment last Friday in conjunction with the open ceromony of 2014 Brazil FIFA World Cup, I decided to create this ThroughBeautyEyes 2014 FIFA World Cup Inspired Make Up series. 



This series will consist of make up based on the World Cup theme over the couse of this tournament - not neccessarily in the order of countries I support! 


ThroughBeautyEyes 2014 #FIFAWorldCup Inspired MakeUp - Brazil




Of course, Brazil will be the first instalment in this series, being the host country and all ;)

Illamasqua Fundamental Palette | INGLOT Freedom Palette | Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Palette in Pride
These are the palettes I used to create this look but feel free to make use of whatever colours you have in your stash - all you need is bright yellow, green and dark blue eyeshadows. AND of course, a very good blending blush!

EYES 

Urban Decay Primer Potion 
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Edgy Emerald
Face of Australia Eye Brow Kit
Dolly Wink Liquid Liner 
(I replaced it with Face of Australia Budge Proof Gel Liner in Brilliant Blue in my step-to-step tutorial guide)
Dolly Wink Volume Mascara in Black
YELLOW (#1) | Illamasqua Fundamental Palette - Powder shadow in Hype (#1)
GREEN | INGLOT Eyeshadow (#2) + Wet n Wild eyeshadow palette in Pride (#3)
BLUE | Wet n Wild eyeshadow palette in Pride (#4)


STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:
2014 #FIFAWorldCup Inspired MakeUp - Brazil 



1. After priming your eyes with a primer and set the base with a cream eyeshadow (I used NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk and Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Edgy Emerald here), gently pack on the green eyeshadow on the centre of the lid, leaving out the inner and outter corner of your eyes.

2. Then, apply the dark blue eyeshadow at the outter corner of your eyes, creating a "V" shape and bringing it slightly into your crease.

3. Next, apply a bright matte yellow eyeshadow (using Illamasqua Hype from the Fundamental Palette) at the inner corner of your eyes, dragging it down to your inner tear duct area/ lower lash line.

4. BLEND, BLEND & BLEND all three colours together. You may lose some of the intensity of the colours, just go back and pack on more colours and blend it until there are no harsh lines and reached the intensity you are looking for.

5. Line your upper lash line with either a black or dark blue eyeliner and create a wing.

6. Then, line 1/3 of your bottom lash line with the same eyeliner and connect it to the wing.

7. Set the eyeliner with the same blue eyeshadow that you use on your outter V.

8. Line the middle (1/3) of your lower lash line with the green eyeshadow you used on your eyelid.


To finish off the look, apply a few generous coats of your favourite mascara (mine is Dolly Wink volume mascara - no surprises here) and to magnify the effect of this look, you may add on some falsies but I wasn't quite up for that. ;)

I am quite lucky to be work in a rather casual environment - that means no warning letter for rocking up to work with these colours. :P

PRODUCTS I LOVE #4 (Haul from M'sia/ SG)



It's been a while since I my last #ProductsILove edition and its time to share a few of my new (and old) love. These are the products that I (re)purchased during my (not so) recent trip back to Malaysia/ Singapore. So, its kinda a combination of fav products AND haul. :P 


Essential Nuance Airy Hair Mask: BEST hair mask ever and it only costs approximately AUD10 a pop! Stumbled upon my first tub whilst I was in Singapore as I left my conditioner at home and fell in love since! I even got a friend who was in Thailand at that time to grab me 2 extra tubs as they don't sell it in Malaysia! I use this hair mask every 2-3 days and it leaves my hair super soft, shiny AND bouncy! 
I have seen them around random Asian cosmetic store in Chinatown but you get grab them from Sasa.Com (free shipping over $75!).

NYX Blush in Mocha: Got this from Sephora, Malaysia (yes they stock up NYX products there!). This was one of the very first products that I have heard a lot about when Youtube tutorials weren't quite a thing yet. This is the perfect neutral shade that gives you a healthy glow. And this is quite pigmented to so a little go a long way! Mocha has been my to-go-to blush all summer! 

Maybelline SO Nude By Colour Sensational Lipstick in NU32S: This is the ideal coral shade for everyday wear - just the right amount of colour, pigmentation and shine and not too OTT. I got this in while I was in Malaysia - not sure if they will be available in Australia anytime soon (or ever) though. 


Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner: THE eyeliner that gives me the perfect flick/ cat eye in less than 30 seconds, dry almost instantly and long lasting. I have gone through at least 8 of these over the past 2 years. HG status in my books when it comes to liquid eyeliner.

Dolly Wink and Kiss Me Heroine Volume Mascara: Just like the Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner, these 2 mascara has been high on my repurchasing list ever since I started using them. I love them both equally, so I alternate between tubes. They make my Asian lashes looks longer and more luscious. MAJOR LOVE. I have previously raved about the Dolly Wink mascara HERE

Etude House Vivid Popstick: My name is Adeline and I am a lipstick addict. Especially the bright, bold ones. (Heck, even wrote a post to talk about my favourite bar with lipsticks :P) and orange is one of my favourite especially in summer (which is now, sadly, over.)! Not that I need an additional lipstick to my orange family but this lip-stick (see what I did there) is extremely pigmented, matte finish and stays on longer than my Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick, what not to love there??

What not to love, RIGHT?

Have you tried any of the products?
What are the current products YOU love?

XOXO,

2014. (A tad late, but better late than never)


Ooops, I did it again.


Last post - 31 December 2013.
None since we have emerged into the new year and we are already 2/3 into the first quarter of 2014.
(How did time flew by THIS quick?!?!)

Dee Why Beach, Sydney, NSW
There was the Christmas - New Year break, the whole back-to-work-new-year-she-bang, me going through (yet another quarter life crisis - having 24792874329 ideas but 0.01 execution. #truestory), swiping right on Tinder hoping to find my Australian Ryan Gosling (which btw, still to no avail if any of you guys are wondering), yours truly feeling absolutely unmotivated and living in the summer bubble. 

CCoconutWater
All I wanna do is lay in the beach, toes between sand, drink coconut water, catch some waves and rays - Eat, beach, sleep, repeat. And, train of course. 

Homemade vego breakfast, EATTHISBURNTHAT style
And, cook

But HEY, after a 5km swim (and my first olympic pool laps ever) yesterday, I think I have finally accepted that writing is not my calling. I used to enjoy blogging before it became an industry of its own. I used to blog way more frequently where editorial calendar becomes the new diary. I think somewhere along the way of meeting new people (some of which are the top bloggers in Australia), attending different meet ups and conference, I got carried away and thought blogging was the next path I would like to pursue.

 I know I crave the freedom lifestyle - where I'm my own boss and I get to work on my own terms and see whatever projects I take on grow like a baby.
 Blogging to me, is probably the least risky option compared to the other ideas I have in mind. (From the initial capital outlay to technical knowledge required and human resources required...)
 That was probably why I went from a "hobby blogger" to wanting a career from blogging. Or thought I wanted it anyways.


 Truth to be told, I think I am more of a number nerd.
 THERE, I SAID IT.
 Playing with data and numbers excites me more than letters or writing beautiful phrases.
#truestory


Don't get me wrong.
 I enjoy random musings about beauty (and life in general) but not writing writing.
I enjoy the friendships that formed through blogging/ random IG & twitter stalking
(you know who you are :p)
I enjoy the socializing and networking.
 I enjoy the excitement to share when I find a cheap & awesome product or I spotted the new Happy Hour spot in Sydneytown filled with men in suits.
 I enjoy these little things but not passionate about them to make it a career.

 So, I am going to stop focusing on my blog "strategies" and stop making writing a chore. I am going to start focusing on what I enjoy doing and continue doing it. Then perhaps, the updates will be less sporadic :) 



Health and fitness on the other hand though, is a different story.
It's something I'm passionate about and talk about all the time.
People often wonder how do I go to work, drink & party up yet still hit the gym and meal prep amongst all these.
 That's because I love it!
Love it so much so that I created a whole new site to talk about it. (EatThisBurnThat.Com is still undergoing identity crisis at the moment but if you wanna find out more on how I went from someone who hates exercise [and bullimic] to someone who loves training, you can check it out HERE)
At the meantime, to get quick tips and updates on all my recipes and meal prep, hop over to FACEBOOK & INSTAGRAM & TWITTER :)



HERE's a sneak peak into my next post (and yes, beauty related) on my next edition of Products I love ;)


XOXO,
A
