Vintage glamour part 2!

Hello!

So this is the second look from the vintage glamour shoot, as you can see the makeup i did is quite bold & exotic. You guys may have noticed that my makeup style is heavily influenced from the Arabic/Middle Eastern style of makeup. I really love the vibrant colours they use and to me Arabic makeup is just so beautiful :)
Thats why i love creating Arabic looks on my clients & Models.

For this look I created a heavy cat liner on the bottom lash line to really accentuate the models amber eyes. On the lids I used golds & blacks with a hint of turquoise.
I created a big beehive with the hair & kept the lips a strong baby pink colour to add a twist of 60's glamour to the images.
 


While putting these pics up, i thought i would add a quick review on a fantastic product i have just discovered. Its these gorgeous lipsticks by Accessorize!
I bought them on a spur of the moment while i was in Superdrug.
I never really paid much attention to the Accessorize cosmetics line before coming across these. 

So when i got them a few weeks ago they were on offer at 2 for £5 so i thought why not give them a try, for that price you cant go wrong.
Now after using them i love them! The colours are so pretty and pigmented.
They retail for £4.95 each but i believe Superdrug have a 3 for 2 offer on at the moment. So im hoping to pop in and pick a few more shades up.

The colours i have are Lovestruck a bright fuchsia & Besotted a more lighter baby pink.




Lovestruck (left) & Besotted (right). 

I used these in the makeup for the shoot above, i mixed both colours together to create the perfect pink for this look.

The staying power is good, i would say they last 2-3 of hours before you need to reapply but for the price that's not bad. The formula is also quite creamy & easy to apply on the lips.
They kind of remind my of NYX lipsticks which i also really like.
These belong in my kit so as you can see Ive been scraping the bullet, to apply with a brush.
 
Aside from the actual product, i totally love the packaging! Its floral & pretty, so it really makes them stand out from other high street cosmetic brands.
 
 
After my positive experience with Accessorize lipsticks, I'm looking forward to trying out more products from this range.
Have you tried Accessorize cosmetics lately? Xxx
