Break Up Make Up Tutorial

As soon as I started playing with my new camera, I was so excited to film a make up tutorial. I knew I’d be able to zoom in, show you what I was doing much more clearly and that the colours would be much more vivid too.

I decided to film a request I received AGES ago – a Break Up Make Up Tutorial. I took this to mean a make up look for when you’re dealing with the rubbish time after breaking up with someone, and I put my own spin on it.

I wanted to create a bold, confidence-boosting look for those moments when you feel like sticking a middle finger up to the bad situation you’re in and feeling defiant. The make up won’t change the world, or ultimately resolve the situation, but it might make you feel better for even 10 minutes. And to me, that’s totally worth it.

The look combined a smokey black and gold eye look (note the dark shades and non-waterproof mascara) and a striking pink lip. In the video, I instructed you to grab your favourite lipstick and wear it proudly!

The products I used were:

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • FashionistA Chyaz Palette
  • Jemma Kidd Stay Put Define Eyeliner
  • Barry M Lash Vegas Mascara
  • Natural Collection Green Concealer
  • BB Cream
  • Mac Show Orchid Lipstick
  • Smashbox Powder

I really hope that you loved the look – I had a blast creating it. I’m so excited to do more!

Stay Creative,

    This has really cheered me up. I totally agree that make up does help improve a persons mood and when you’re feeling depressed we all need little things to cheer us up. I’ve been in a rut for a while over a break up. I think I need some of your tough love chyaz!
