How to Over Draw Your Lips! (Kylie Jenner Inspired)

kylie jenner lips how to kylie jenner lip linerOverdrawing your lips has become widely popular and I think that is down to the likes of Kylie Jenner. When done properly, I think it can look great! I over line my lips from time to time, sometimes more dramatic, other times only slightly and I've learnt some tricks to make it look as natural as possible. Whatever your into, if you want to enhance your natural lips a little or achieve more of a bigger poutier look hopefully you will find some tips and tricks helpful in this post.

Step 1 
Take a lip pencil, in the photo I am using Mac 'Soar'. Start at the cupids bow and over line, you can over line a little or a lot. The important part is to over line only on the middle of your lips, so when you get to the outer corners of your lips make sure your lip liner meets your natural lip line. Make sure the lip liner is matte as a gloss will show where you have over lined.

Step 2 
Now over line the bottom, again only over line the middle part of your lips and then blend it into the outer corners of your lips.

Step 3
Fill in your lips with a lip pencil, apply more product on the space between your natural lip line and the over drawn lip line, as you don't want to be able to see the gap. If you need to make any corrections then go over your lips, so if one side of you natural lip is less full then the other you can correct and make it look the same.

MAC Haul!

MAC HaulIf you haven't seen my last post which was a Huge Sephora Haul (link here) I mentioned that I would be doing a MAC haul as I purchased some products while I was in New York. As I mentioned in my last post I haven't tried any of the products yet apart from a few swatches.

Mac bronzerMac Mineralize Skinfinish 'Give Me Sun' 
This looks gorgeous, it's a beautiful warm matte bronzer shade. It is quite orange toned and very warm which I think will look perfect to really warm up the complexion and give a really bronzed look.

Honeylove, Faux, Velvet Teddy, Peachstock

Mac Lipsticks
Honeylove - I've been into nude lips lately, this is a beige brownie nude and has a matte finish.

Velvet Teddy - This is such a pretty shade, if your into that mauve brown lips then this is for you. It is a darker nude with a brown beige undertone and is a matte finish.

Faux - This is more of a purple toned brown lipstick with a matte finish.

Peachstock - Nude peach beige shade with a satin finish.

mac eyeshadows
Shroom- creamy white shade with shimmer, perfect for highlighting the inner corner of the eye or brow bone.

Wedge - medium brown with a matte finish, great as a crease colour.

Tempting - warm copper/gold shade with shimmer.

Mac brushes haulMac 224 Brush - This is a domed blending brush, great for blending eyeshadow and it's really soft.

Mac 242 Brush - A flat densely packed brush that you can use to pack on eyeshadow.

Mac 263 Brush - Small angled brush, this one seems really nice and precise.

So that is what I purchased from Mac, let me know if you have any of these products and what do you think of them?

Huge Sephora Haul!

Sephora is one of my favourite places to shop, I'm sure my fellow beauty addicts feel the same and can spend hours in there! I recently went to New York and of course went to Sephora and purchased quite a few items, most of the things I haven't tried yet but will review some of the products soon so let me know if there is anything you would like to see.

Sephora Haul

Sephora Haul
Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturiser
A hydrating anti-aging moisturiser that comes in a tub with a pump which is great as it means you dont have to put your hands in there, you just push down and the products comes out. I have tried this  and its so moisturising! it doesn't feel thick or greasy either.

Boscia Cool Blue Hydrating Essence
I love anything hydrating so I really like the sound of this, it is a gel-serum formula which comes in a pipete style bottle. You are supposed to apply before you moisturiser, it adds hydration and is suitable for all skin types.

Tarte Marajuca Oil
This is a mini size of Tarte's Marajuca Oil, its supposed to be very hydrating which is great as i have dehydrated skin.

IMG_1193Smashbox Primer Water
This came out quite recently, its a primer water which is basically a water infused with hydrating ingredients that prep the skin for make-up. You can also use it to freshen up your make-up or if you find it looks a bit powdery.

Make-up Forever Nourishing Primer
This is also a new release, there are lots for all diffent skin types. The nourishing one moisturises the skin and is good for dry skin.

Smashbox Hydrating Primer
Another Hydrating primer, I've heard good things about the Smashbox primers so hopefully this will be good.

IMG_1200The Healthy Deodrant
This is a deodorant that is supposed to be 'healthier' it is made without a lot of the toxic ingredients that most deodorants have.

IMG_1202Tarte Lights Camera Lashes
I'm not a fan of the packaging but I've heard good things about this mascara, hopeful it will add lots of length and volume.

IMG_1197Smashbox Contour Palette
There are three powders, a neutral brown for contouring, a slightly warmer brown for brazening or you could use it too contour and a yellow highlight shade.

IMG_1201Smashbox Contour and Highlight Stick Trio
In the kit you get three cream sticks, a bronzing shade, a contouring shade and a highlight, so it has everything you need for cream contour.

Sephora HaulLaura Mercier Contour Kit
Another cream contour kit, This one comes with three contour shades and two shimmery highlight shades. The shades range is good so it will suit most skin tones.

IMG_1203Beauty Blender
The beauty blender gives such a flawless finish so I picked another one up.

Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser
I've tried the liquid version which is quite good but I've heard this Solid cleanser is better.

IMG_1204Living Proof Hair Kit
If you've shopped at Sephora you know that if you spend a certain about of money you get to pick a free same or gift, I got this 500 point kit which comes with a hairspray, a prime style extender, texturing cream and a hair serum.

Thats everything I got from Sephora, I will be reviewing lots of these products and I also have a Mac haul from New York coming up soon. Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you think of them?
