Back to Basics: Make-up for Glasses Wearers

Hi everyone, Happy New Year!

We have a new video up on our channel, something a bit different this time. The lovely Danielle from the fashion and beauty blog, Fashionista Barbie agreed to come and do a video with us and we decided to do a make-up look for glasses wearers.

I loved the colours I used on Danielle as they complimented her skin tone nicely, you’ll find a full product list below the video. I’ll be doing more make-up looks for glasses wearers so watch this space.

If you’re a glasses wearer, do you struggle with eye make-up? Or are there any tips and tricks you’d like to share with us?

Tomato Crayon

This is RMK’s Spring Matte Lip Crayon in Orange 05, which is a beautiful
tomato shade!

Pros? Easy to apply with its rounded nib, with a nice creamy finish. Not as drying as other matte lipsticks.

Cons? Less vibrant than I had personally hoped for and it didn’t last very long on the lip without fading.

Verdict? Still extremely pricey at £18 – but a great shade and worth having in your bag. Lets hope they bring the price down! As long as you don’t mind topping up and prefer a more subtle shade then this is for you.

Another celebrity inspired video…

If you’re a keen youtube viewer then you’ll have noticed how many ‘celebrity inspired’ make-up videos there are! So, here at MadeUp we thought we’d try another one out as Fran has already done a Kardashian one so this will add to the collection. I really enjoyed making this video as I would never usually wear this much make-up so it was fun experimenting.

We really wanted to find a wig for this video but we didn’t have time, however, we did try spraying my hair black but it was such a disaster Rich had to go in really close for the intro shot to try and hide it! It was another really fun filming day but we did eat pizza AGAIN! :/

Fran did a beautiful Rita Ora and Taylor Swift and I did a Zooey Deschanel so lots more videos to come…
