This super simple Summer coloured liner look has been one of my go to makeup looks over the last couple of weeks.

Simple Summer Liner Look Nyx Vivid

There is really not a whole load going on on the eyes. It’s a little bit of definition in the crease, because I need it. A slick of this NYX Vivid Brights Liquid Liner in ‘Vivid Envy’, which I talked about in my recent NYX haul here.

I don’t find liquid liner the easiest to work with personally, but I think these fun light colours are a little bit more forgiving on the eyes. And, I do use a little shortcut to help the process a little bit too πŸ™‚

Simple Summer Coloured Liner Look

I just finished the look off with a light layer of pink lippie, some pink blush and a sweep of highlighter too. I also used a nude pencil in my waterline to open up my eyes a little bit more and make me look more awake.

This Simple Summer Coloured Liner Look. That’s what I decided to call it, catchy, right? ;p I think it makes a great day time look. It’s light on the products, but still pack a fun makeup punch.

These NYX Vivid Bright Liquid Liners come in array of shades. I got this one in Boots and now I have a real urge to buy more. I really love this makeup look because I still feel myself in it, even though it has a bit of an unusual twist πŸ™‚

Ok, I’ll stop rambling πŸ™‚ You can click on the video on the top of this post, to see how I apply my liner or you can head straight to my Youtube channel and watch it by clicking here.

As always, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read and watch. It’s always much appreciated.

Let me know what you think πŸ™‚

I’m like a broken record, I know, but I have pretty oily skin and as a result of this makeup, as much as I love it, doesn’t particularly love me. It sinks into my skin, oxidizes and just doesn’t hang around too long. So, as a result, over the years, I’ve tried and tested lots of different ways to make it last longer on my visage. I’ve done a post about this in the past, but I’ve updated and added some different steps, so I thought I would put together all of my Long Lasting Makeup Tips in video form and demo them on my mug πŸ™‚

After Makeup

There is a lot of long lasting makeup steps in the video, I don’t expect anyone to do them all, unless of course you’re really oily like me. But if you struggle with your makeup slipping and sliding, or have a special occasion, some of them might help you a little. You can click on the video up above or go to my YouTube channel here to watch.

As you probably know from the title, this is just a casual Makeup Get Ready With Me Video. Myself and John went to a screening of Rocky in the Tivoli for the Jameson Cult Club and I had to slap a bit of…slap on, so I thought I would turn the camera on and film it πŸ™‚

Casual Makeup grwmWe actually had loads of fun at the Rocky screening, they had scenes out of the movie set up in the Tivoli, and throughout the film, actors came in and reenacted some of the most memorable parts.

jameson cult film clubrocky jameson cult film clubirish blogirish bloggerSo onto the makeup, I went with a really simple, typical me eye look, using theBalm Meet Matte Nudes palette (full review here) and the Essence Shape & Shadows palette (full review here). I had a bit of trouble blending out one of the matte shades in the crease as you’ll see in the video, but sure none of us are perfect and I got there in the end πŸ™‚

All the products are listed in the video, I managed to edit the names in as I went along! Go me, that means my editing skills are progressing ha!

This is really just me doing my casual makeup, no funny business, I didn’t speed any of it up either, so if you don’t like seeing alot of blending, this video might not be for you πŸ™‚

Any questions on any of the products, as always just holler, I have posts on alot of them here, so if you see something you like, search for it in the search bar on the top right hand corner, and there might be already a full explanation with pictures to boot!

As always thanks for taking the time out of your day to click πŸ™‚

It’s monthly favourites time again here on Beautynook. It’s crazy, I spent so long not doing them and now my month doesn’t feel complete without rounding up some of the things that I’ve been using either freshly for the month or some old favourites that I’ve found a love for once again. So just click on the video above to see the things that made it into my June Favourites video πŸ™‚

June favouritesAnd like always, I’ll link anything I can here too, in case something takes your fancy and you want to know more. I know monthly favourites are more rambly videos so less info is given generally while I’m in waffle mode πŸ™‚

June Favourites

First up we have the pom pom sandals from River Island. These will definitely divide opinions I know. Unfortunately these were limited edition and don’t seem to be on the website anymore. Asos have similar styles here though if you want to check them out.

The Kind Shower Gel from Cocoa Brown. I have a full a post all about the new Kind range here, if you want to check it out.

I’ve never done a blogpost on the Lorac Pro Palette for some weird reason! I had to buy it from Amazon, but that was a couple of years ago now.

Mac Whirl Lip liner can be bought from Brown Thomas in store or online here

The Rimmel Kate lipstick in number 45 is here on the Boots website.

I have a full post on the Sleek Solstice Palette here and you can pick it up from Boots (hopefully) in store or online here

The L’Occitane Verveine Cooling Hand Cream Gel is on their website here. I actually thought it was more expensive. €10.50 is ok for a 30ml tube, right?

And….we’re done πŸ™‚

As always thanks for taking the time to click and watch. If you liked the video, you can keep tabs on when I upload by subscribing to my Youtube channel here πŸ™‚

Have you any particular June Favourites? Let me know.

The day I filmed this video I was heading to the Irish Beauty Blog Awards where I was casually up for an award…no biggie like πŸ™‚ Unfortunately I came home empty handed, but we had a good night regardless πŸ™‚

 

I love handbags, but I am a lazy git and don’t always carry one. However, for a night out a bag is a completely necessary addition to my outfit. Us girls bring an arsenal of ‘just in case’ items in our handbags. We just make it a little smaller when we hit the town so we don’t have to lug around the big everyday bag. I think this makes what we bring that more important and it’s stuff we actually use and love πŸ™‚

what's in my handbag

So tonight Matthew I bring you ‘What’s in My Handbag’ the night out edition. Just a bit of fun. I love having a nosey into other people’s handbags so I though it was fitting that I let you have a nose into mine. Click on the video about to watch me waffle up a storm and then I’ll have everything I talk about listed below and anything that I can link linked πŸ™‚

So…what’s in my handbag?….

Too Faced Kabuki brush. I can’t find the exact one. This is a similar one from Too faced here.

You can get the Exaggerate Lipliners like the eyeliners in store or from Boots online here. I also have swatches of it here if you’re interested πŸ™‚

Thanks for checking out what’s in my handbag πŸ™‚
