Smokey Eye Makeup with LOLA

I was challenged by the lovely people at LOLA Makeup by Pearse to create The Dark Angel also known as smokey eye makeup using makeup products from the new collection of Autumn/Winter Hypnotic. I had an amazing time creating this look. It took me out of my comfort zone, as I usually go for softer eye makeup but I like this smokey eye look. Its is dramatically channelling a futuristic femme fatale, and I am so in love with the look.

To create this Dark Angel Makeup with LOLA Makeup by Pearse, I used Eyeshadows 012 and 019, Highlighter Powder 01, Ultrashine lipstick 034 and Nail Polish 012 Pebbles.

I found the products very easy to use as always. They looked great on my skin as well, which was amazing.

The whole idea of the look was to draw attention to the eyes by going for a metallic shade combines with an ombre lip to create a modern and edgy look.

Here are the swatches of the Highlighter Powder, Ultrashine Lipstick and Eyeshadows.

A little more about the products –

 

Highlighter Powder

This light-diffusing creamy powder highlighter instantly illuminates and gives skin a a sheer glow that brightens the skin and blends easily into the skin for a light and delicate finish. The sheer glow can finish off any look beautifully.

 

Eyeshadows

Both eyeshadows are rich and have intense colour coverage. They are perfect for a natural everyday look or to provide a base colour for building, blending, highlighting or contouring. They are dead easy to apply and look fab!

 

Ultrashine Lipstick

This Ultrashine Lipstick 034 is a high-performance lip gloss compressed into a lipstick format. It has a high gloss effect and a divine wet-shine finish. So it is very light and there is hardly any visible colour on the lips.

 

Nail Polish

This nail polish has been formulated with Expert Gel III technology which is especially engineered to ensure fluidity, as well as high gloss and resistant wear. It is super easy to apply and dries pretty quickly.

The whole idea behind this Dark Angel look is to draw attention to the eyes, and keep the focus on there.  So I started off with the eyes, once the primer, foundation, and concealer have been applied. I used an angled eye shadow brush to create a dark frame outline with the LOLA Eyeshadow 012. Then I blended in the Eyeshadow 019.

For the lips, I went almost nude with the Ultrashine Lipstick 034, and applied the Pebbles nail polish to my nails.

Being a Blogger Seemed like a Huge Joke

There was a time when being a blogger seemed like a huge joke. People called bloggers fools for making blogging their main preoccupation. Back then, the thought of making a living through your blog was nothing more than a fantasy. Nobody thought it was possible. No one was familiar with the concept of working from home. How could sharing your thoughts on a blog be something of interest?

When you fast forward to our world today, the perception of bloggers and blogging has changed. Bloggers now make a comfortable living just sharing their ideas and giving value to people through their blogs. More and more people read blogs everyday and a good number of people have embraced blogging all together.

We were once considered as foolish but unknown to society we were wiser than they thought we were. Does this mean that bloggers are free from criticism or being looked down upon? Unfortunately, no. There are still many who think blogging is a waste of time. But if you’re a blogger or intend to start your own blog one day, here are some reasons why bloggers are smarter than many people think them to be.

 

A Blogger is self-made

As bloggers, we put in a lot of hard work to build our brand and elevate ourselves to the stage where we will earn a comfortable living through our blog. At first, it seems crazy to put hours into writing, editing, and consistently publishing and promoting your blog posts, but we bloggers had a goal in mind.We see opportunities where others see “too busy to blog”.

 

Bloggers have great influence in the industry

Who would have thought anyone would care about a common blogger’s opinion? Today, many people do. In fact, bloggers are among the most influential people online. There’s hardly an influencer who doesn’t own a blog of some sort, whether it be written or in video.

Most bloggers have a target audience they relate with on a level big companies would only dream about. Which is why we how we have become so relevant. Now people seek out influencers to promote their products or chip in a good word for their brand, products or services.

 

Bloggers made their blogs great resources

The answer to almost every question you need answered can be found on a blog. This makes blogs go-to resources for their readers. Bloggers are dedicated to giving loads of value in their blogs and making sure that there are actionable steps or are jam-packed with useful information. If you’re learning something new, you can always find a step-by-step tutorial to guide you through the process.

Blogs rich with information are highly consulted and bloggers are seen as experts in their niche.
