FOTD: Inspired by Adele

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Hey!!

So I have wanted to do a look inspired by Adele for a long time now.  Adele is an amazing chanteuse! I love her voice, her look, her style, vibes, everything!   Her albums are full of true, true tabanca songs.  She’s just stunning to me!

Adele’s signature style seems to be modern 60’s makeup.  The focus is always the eyes, winged out liner, full, flirty lashes and the rest of the face is understated. Nude lips, matte foundation, cheek contouring and not a lot of shimmer.  She also follows this up with full, sexy, voluminous hair and spiked nails.  I love it all! It matches her personality and curvy figure well and I hope she does not succumb to societal pressures.

Anyway, I saw the October 2011 cover of Vogue UK and had to a look based on it.

Hey!

Here is a bright look for the summer!  I used one of the most popular colours for the season, coral, but made it wearable for everyone with a light application.  Of course, you can intensify the look by adding a bright liner on the lower lashline, like green, gold or turquoise.

Bright, summer look!

LOTD: Easy, everyday work look

Hey!

One of the most requested looks is the neutral, everyday look.  Something that makes you look polished for work.  I used my trusty Naked Palette from Urban Decay, but you can use any neutral, close-to-your-skintone colour.  I chose shimmery, bronzey makeup, but you could also use champagnes, taupes, pale pinks, whatever works for you!

Here’s the look!

LOTD: MUFE Smoky Rock inspired!

Two LOTDs in one week?? Wheeeeeey!!

Browsing the MUFE boutique and saw this promo image for their Rock For Ever collection.

Rock For Ever by Make Up For Ever

Close up

Hot, right??? I had to recreate this look.  It’s certainly not an everyday look but if you are wearing a black or silver Carnival costume, this would be a stunning look! Add some glitter on the lid or rhinestones and it would be all over!

The Rock For Ever collection was released late last year and is a series of trial-sized mini sets of Aqua pencils, Star Powders, mascara etc. housed in a studded container. Cute. Especially the Best of MUFE collection set.

This features a smoky eye, cut crease and winged liner, and I was up for the challenge!!!

Here is what I came up with…..
