1 Product 2 Looks: Maybelline Colour Tattoo

Hello beaut's! Last week, when I posted the second part of my Spain beauty haul (read HERE), one of my lovely readers asked me to post a look using this beautiful and bright Colour Tattoo by Maybelline in the colour 'Turpuoise Forever'. So today I figured why not sit down for an hour or two and try to come up with a few looks using this product. Now I'm necessarily not one to sit down and take some time to try new looks however this was actually quite fun. I think I'm gonna do this more often now. Before I start I just wanna say that I'm in no way a trained makeup artist, I also never posted some kind of tutorial before but I still hope that the pictures and my description are of any help. Anyways enough rambling onto the finished looks. 

1. Ombré Eyeliner


You Need: 
  • Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'Turquoise Forever'
  • eyeshadow primer
  • black gel eyeliner
  • liquid eyeliner 
  • angled brush 
  • pointed eyeliner brush
  • Blending brush 
  • Shader brush
The first look I that came to my mind is this winged ombré eyeliner. I first primed my eyes with the Urban Decay Primer Potion to get rid of any oils and shine. I then used the colour 'Naked 2' from the NAKED Basics Palette and a fluffy brush to give my crease some definition. On my lid I applied a bit of 'WOS' just to brighten it up. You could use any eyeshadow you want at this point but I'd advice you to keep the eye area all matte cause we want the eyeliner to get the most attention (I hope that makes sense). 

Next you want to use some kind of angled eyeliner brush. I used a random one I got in Sephora. Dip the brush into the creme eyeshadow and apply just like you would apply any eyeliner. I started it the middle of my eye cause that's where I wanted it to be the most pigmented. Don't worry if you don't get a lot of pigment straight away, just dip your brush into the shadow and build up the colour. 

I then went onto my inner corner with whatever was left on the brush. I didn't pick up any more product because I wanted my inner corners to be the lightest. You could also apply a white eyeliner as a base to really make that area stand out. I didn't have one with me, so I just tried to use as little product as I could.

To create the ombré effect in the outer corner I used gel eyeliner and blended it with the turquoise. I also switched the angled brush with a regular eyeliner brush - the soft liner brush by Zoeva. If you want the transition to be seamless go back and forth with the black and the turquoise. And finally, because I can never get a sharp line when using a gel eyeliner, I used my tried and tested liquid liner by Essence (any liquid eyeliner will do) to create my wing - that's your ombré eyeliner complete. All you need to do now is to apply your usual foundation routine and you're ready to head out the door. I chose a nude lip for today (Patisserie by MAC) but if you were to feel a bit adventures you could easily wear a bright lip with it. 

2. Smoked Out Bottom Lashline


You Need:
  • Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'Turquoise Forever'
  • black eyeliner (I used liquid) 
  • blending brush 
  • large shader brush 
  • angled brush 
  • small shader brush/pencil brush
The second look I chose is a smokey bottom lashline with a pop of colour - which is actually way easier than the first one. All you need to do is apply your usual foundation routine and some kind of neutral eyeshadow look. 

I used my NAKED Palette by Urban Decay, which I've fallen back in love with. I applied 'Naked' as a transition colour, 'Buck' to define my crease, 'Sin' all over the lid and 'Virgin' on my brow bone and inner corner. I feel like I mentioned this eyeshadow look before, but this is just my standard every day look. I then went ahead and applied my winged eyeliner like as usual and applied two coats of the Benefit They're Real Mascara. 

Now onto the fun part - the smokey lashline. At first you want to take your angled brush, pick up some of the product and run it through your bottom lashline. Next, to smoke it out, you want to take a pencil brush or a small shader brush (I personally prefer to use a small shader brush for this but both of them will do the job just fine), a little bit of 'Naked' or 'Buck' and blend it with the turquoise. Using a natural eyeshadow, close to your skin tone, will help to blend the colour and make it look all soft and smokey. Lastly feel free to add some black or white eyeliner in your waterline and some mascara on your bottom lashes and you're good to go. 

I hoped you liked my attempt of a tutorial. Like I said this was my first time and if you have any tips for me, feel free to leave me a comment. If you end up recreating one of these looks I would love for you to tweet them to me (@_marielovely_) or tag me on instagram (@mariesophie93). Thank you so much for reading guys. xo, Marie
