3rd Doctor

Jon Pertwee... what a name! Anyway he was our 3rd Doctor, and in colour so full colour today :D he wore a teacher-ish kind of jacket, black with red trim, so that it how I have done my eyes, nothing fancy but then, understated is the Drs middle name eh ;)
Simply get hold of a red eyeliner (Barry M does one, or I made my own liquid liner, that how to is at the bottom of the page) and a black eyeshadow.

Cover your lid in the black eyeshadow and using a fine brush draw the shadow out slightly around the inner corner of the eye and slightly under the lower lashline. Line the gap on the lower lashline with red and around the edge of the black shadow with red liner.
The liquid liner recipie!
Squeeze out a baby wipe into a small lid, add a drop of facewash and a teaspoon(ish) of still water. Mix it all together. Load a brush with this water and swirl it in the eyeshadow you want to make a liner and voila! Haha :) Using a think brush, like a nail art brush works best for good clean lines!

2nd Doctor... bloody tartan...

Right tartan... not the nicest of materials to try and recreate as makeup, might have a good practice before I reattempt it ever. OK, so onwards to the second doctor on our journey through space and timelords!
Doctor number 2
Patrick Troughton
OK, fetch yourself: a dark brown eyeliner (I used one by sleek, "molasses" I will vlog about why you must not buy this product later), a cream coloured eyeliner, gold glitter eyeliner, mid brown matte eyeshadow, dark brown eyeshadow (doesn't matter if this is matte, but it looks better if you keep them both matte), your favorite mascara and a matte brown/nude lipstick.

This Dr Who also was in black and white, hence the picture being in greyscale, I'm not trying to be artsy-fartsy honest! OK, here's how you do this;
First off apply the mid brown eyeshadow all over your eyelid, not past the socket, then in the crease apply the dark brown and blend that up! Next you want to line under your lower lashline with the brown eyeliner. To do the tartan get hold of your creamy eyeliner and draw 3-5 vertical lines above and below the lashlines and do the same with vertical lines intersecting the horizontal lines. Go over a few lines or areas with the gold glitter liner to make them pop. Now apply your mascara as you do. Apply your lipstick and voila!
Yeah, I will practice my tartan and when I am satisfied I will do a tutorial on a look using tartan, until then I apologise for the terrible tartan I have offred you today :/
Lots of love my darlings!

I am back my darlings!

After a long absence that has seen all kinds of crazy happen to me :) I'm kicking off my return with a few Dr Who looks, spliced with some date styles and a few hints and tips pages while I am at it! There are som many sorrys I want to say to you but I have not enough space, so without further ado I will crack on with
William Hartnell
 Figured I'd go authentic, and put this out in black and white, it doesn't change the eyeshadow colour at all becauuse I used black and white eyeshadow anyway :)
Righto, this is what you're going to want to grab, a white shadow, a silver eyeshadow, a grey eyeshadow and a black eyeshadow, a black eyeliner and your best loved mascara. It doesn't matter about pearlescent  shades, or if they're matte, I used shimmer, so depends how much like mine you want this to be.

First things first, coat your lid in the grey eyeshadow and just above the socket, blend this out with a blending brush if you have one or your fingers, smudging it so it fades. then grab your silver and sweep that in your crease and the inner corner to about halfway into your lid. Then take the black, and outline the edges of the grey eyeshadow, in a thin line, and a thrid of the way into the crease of your eye, blend it in well. Sweep a small amount of white on the inner corner of your eye. Now line, trail a line of black about half way over your upper lash line, and fill it so it's a cat eye flick.
An optional extra is make the black liner glittery! GLITTER WOOOO!!

So yeah... there you have it, in colour, the first doctor :D

My absence...

I haven't been on in a while, but don't worry, I'm not gonna be gone for long. I'm having to make some serious life changes, I've just started my nursing placement :D
So from monday to friday I work from sun up to sundown and I am so tired when I get home I cannot lift brush to mush so I've not blogged.
However, I have weekends off, and while I don't have a paid job I will resume blogging on the weekends. If I get a weekend job though, please understand I have to get through uni and appretiate your tollerance of my erractic behaviour and timing right now.
So, I will be up tomorrow, doing my list of jobs like organising my uni society and blogging to you and other such things.
Love you thank you for being patient.

A triple one :D Some thing green's going down!

OKAAAAY, I missed some days, I'm out of practise haha, well I'm gonna let you in on a secret! I told you I'm doing Disney Princesses right? Well I extended it into any Disney heroine! AND... Their respective foes :D so tonight I have for you Fiona, Fairy Godmother and Rumplestiltskin! Whhhheeeeeeeeeeeee :)

 First for fiona, grab yourself green eyeliner, blue eyeliner and silver liner, also grab silver glitter and green glitter eyeliners as well as a lime green eyeshadow.
Super simple, on your upper eyelid, line first with green all the way across above your lashes, flick the end, then above the green, draw halfway in to the upper lid from the inner corner with the blue, finish it off the the silver and match the green flick. Now, grab the green glitter liner and line over the green liner in green glitter, and with the silver glitter, go over the silver liner. Lastly apply some eyeshadow to your lower lashline.

Pretty I think :)
Now for the madam! FAAAAAIRYGODMOTHER!
Grab a pale pink eyeshadow, a purple eyeshadow, a silver glitter eyeliner, a purple glitter eyeliner and a black liquid eyeliner and a tube of purple mascara.
First off, cover your eyelid in the pink eyeshadow, then highlight the outer corner in the purple. Next grab your silver glitter and line the lower lashline half way in from the inner corner of the eye, complete the line with purple glitter liner. Then grab the black eyeliner and starting from just over half way into the upper lid, draw a black line on the upper lashline that gradually thickens as it reaches the outer corner of the upper eyelid, DON'T add a flick. It looks like I have on the photo, but that's from making a correction with a baby wipe, it dragged the end a little, please excuse it. Finish with a slick of purple mascara
A sexy glam look that I'm sure she'd love :D
Mmmm purpley...
Now for Stiltskin tehehe
Go get your hands on some orange eyeshadow, some reddish-orange eyeshadow (or dark orange), coral eyeliner and gold glitter eyeliner. (Also, fetch your angry wig if you happen to have one ;D)
Now, all the way up to your brow, apply the orange, blend it at the edges so it's not a harsh splodge of colour, next, on the outer corner from the eyelid up again to the brow, blend the darker shadow. Now that's done, get your gold liner and draw big swirls and stuff on your lids, make sure to apply the liner so the gold is dense and easily visable, you can make a guide with non-glittery gold eyeliner before hand if you like to intensify the colour of the gold.
Tadaaaaa, I began watermarking on recommendation from a friend of mine, I keep it out the way of the pretty parts so don't worry about it :D
Enjoy shreking it up guys.

Princess Merida

Yep, get your grr face on for some Scottish slap I have for your delectation...
You're going to want a nude lipstick that's slightly darker than your own skin tone, orange eyeshadow, light blue eyeshadow and some light pink or peachy blusher.
Forstly get your face matte and flawless, I have an earlier blog post on just how to do this if you go back and check :)
Once you have that down, get a small amount of blush on an angled blusher brush and tap it onto your cheek bone (if you have trouble finding your cheek bones, suck your cheeks in and you'll see them) and blend the blush in soft circles towards the temple. Now apply your lipstick, then take an eyeliner brush and apply orange eyeshadow to the inner corner of the upper eyelid on both eyes, then using another brush (or clean the first one) and apply blue eyshadow to the outer corner and blend the two colours where they meet.
Once this is all done you have yourself a princess' flawless skin and distinct eyes to boot :)
Tomorrows princess will be a suprise :D
