One of my very first posts was a Lottie Tomlinson inspired look, I bloody love her hair, makeup and style and so when she posted THIS video on Instagram I had to get hold of her blue eyeliner!
I’ve always wanted to try the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils, but at £15.50 they aren’t exactly budget friendly! That being said I simply couldn’t resist treating myself to one! The beautiful shade of blue that Lottie used is called Deep End. I will just note that the pencil appears as a baby blue matte shade in the video whereas in reality it is a slightly darker iridescent colour. This doesn’t bother me particularly as it is still a beautiful pencil but I felt that it was worth mentioning if like me you choose to buy it online. The quality of the 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil is outstanding, highly pigmented and long lasting. What more could a girl ask for?!
I wear this on my lower waterlid and keep the rest of the look pretty simple. I’m obsessed with using MAC Saddle eyeshadow as an all over eyeshadow, for a cheaper alternative you can use a matte bronzer (the Seventeen Contour Kit is amazing for this). These two products together are heavenly for green/blue/grey combination eyes! For brown eyes I would suggest trying a purple like the Maybelline Master Drama one in the shade Dark Purple which I also absolutely love!!
Basically this is just a post to say thank you Lottie Tomlinson for inspiring me to venture into the world of coloured eye pencils!! I am officially converted, when it comes to makeup bright colours really aren’t such a scary thing after all! What do you think? Is coloured liner something you would try?
We all get it, right?!
There’s nothing I love more than scrolling through Instagram accounts belonging to the likes of Anastasia Beverly Hills, Urban Decay and Charlotte Tilbury in order to gain inspiration in an attempt to switch up my makeup. The problem is I know what I like and despite owning a large number of vibrant lipsticks I always reach for a light pink/nude shade in the end.
Every once in a while I will stumble across a picture of a famous face that instantly makes me want to rip open my makeup draws and desperately trawl through products, in the hopes that I can come close to mimicking their look. This was the case recently, when I followed Lottie Tomlinson on Instagram.
Lottie is the younger sister of One Direction member, Louis. Her makeup is amazing! Below are videos she featured in on Tanya Burrs YouTube channel:
More recently her look has changed, she has ice white hair and wears a much fuller makeup look, something I personally lean towards. The focal point of Lotties look is really her eyes, the stunning pink pigment on the lid is complimented by what looks to be a dark brown shadow on the lower lash line. Lashings of black mascara add a dramatic finish, yet she still achieves what is actually a very wearable daytime look. Naturally, I was desperate to try it out and after a few attempts I think I have achieved a fairly similar result. Let me know what you think, are you someone who takes inspiration from others? I’ve listed all the products below!
