Makeup Revolution Bold Eye Look // Let Your Eyes Do The Talking.

Helllooooaaaaa.

I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's weekend?! Mine of course involved pizza, cake and horror movies (as promised in my previous post). I did however get ghosted by my lad mate for no reason whatsoever, so that's made me feel amazing and I got given a pity gift from Lush on Sunday. Ha. 

Onwards and upwards and all that. :) 

Most people know that I like to experiment with my look and makeup,I never like to look the same. If I am out and about I like to stand out but not in a 'in your face' kind of way. 

I get a lot of compliments on my makeup and me being me don't take compliments very well. So I always get shy when someone compliments me. I don't watch tutorials and I am 100% not the best ever at makeup, but I just go with what I am feeling on that day. 

Practice makes perfect you know. 

Seeing as I am job searching (still) at the moment it's giving me a lot of free time to play with my makeup. 

This look at I am presenting to you today is one of my favourite bold eye looks which I tend to fashion in Spring/summer. 

It's all about the eyes for me because they are my stand out feature, so I like to make most of them. 

If you are like me and like a bold eye then follow these steps to creating the perfect stand out look. If you want to know what I have used on my face then check out my 'Smokey Eye & Nude Lip' post that I posted the other week.

 For my eyes I will always put concealer and foundation on first, some people prefer to leave this step out but for me it works best to have a covered base. I will then apply my MUA nude shadow to use as a base to block out any redness.

The next step for this look, and I like to switch this process up, will be the eyeliner. Here I am using my trusty Rimmel 'Exaggerate' Liquid eyeliner and their 'Scandaleyes' Kohl pencil. I will just apply a chunkier cat eye along my top lid and then apply the Kohl pencil through my tight line and water line.

Next, apply a good coat of mascara. I am using Maybelline's 'Lash Sensational' and MAC's 'False Lashes'.

Now that this part has been completed it's time to move onto the eyeshadow. This is 100% the fun part!!!


For this look today I will be using the Makeup Revolution 'Mermaids vs Unicorns' eyeshadow pallet.

 I will be using this aqua green shade first of all, in the crease blending it outwards out of the socket.

Next I will be moving onto this lighter blue shade, building the colour up from the crease but only ever so slightly.

 Finally I will use the bright blue shade as the main vocal point which I will be blending in from the outer corners of my crease towards my brow. This is what finalises the look.

 Because I have put eyeshadow on after my eyeliner I will then go over the liner and mascara to ensure that the shadow dust disappears.

 On this look today I wanted to deepen the crease. So I decided to put a little liquid liner into the crease and blend to the outer corners of my eye with my shading brush.

Now that the upper stage is basically done I move on to my lower eye with the Bourjois 'Intense Metalic' eye pencil in 'Bleu Clinquant 54'.

 Next you go back in with the bright blue shade in the Makeup Revolution pallet, across the lower lash line to make that blue pop and sparkle.

After this step I will just touch up the liner and mascara again.

As if this isn't stand out enough I like to make my look really different. I used to wear dots above my eyebrow which people thought were tattoo'd on. Ha. That grabbed a lot of attention. 

Today, I am going to take the dot inspiration from my past and put one dot on my lower lash line, on each eye, just directly under where my pupil sits.

 The dots add more glamour to the look I feel and it reminds me of a butterfly. Super pretty and feminine. 



 And that's the eyes done. I will then do my usual highlighter and blush to finish the look and add my favourite nude lip which I use MAC's 'Honeylove' matte lipstick and the Primark 'Nude' liner.

There you have it. My finished bold eye look. 

I always reach for my Makeup Revolution pallets as they are super pigmented and the colour pay off is amazing. They have so many colours available and their pricing cannot be beaten, end of. 

This look is pretty simple to re-create and with LFW coming up (very quickly) this is a sure fire way to get noticed. This will be the eye look I will be sporting when I head down to London on Monday!!

Go on have a play!!

Love
