Autumn Lips

So Autumn is upon us! My favourite time of the year! With my birthday & Halloween I get a little excited to say the least! however I also get to rock my favourite dark vampy lip colours!!!! And don’t get me wrong I do still wear them in other seasons but nothing beats a real vampy lip in the fall, so today I’ll post my top 5 I hope you enjoy them and maybe try some out!!!

First is illamasqua “growl” I was lucky enough to get this in a sale but it’s RRP is £18.50, this is one of the most gorgeous rich monogamy brown with a matte finish! Extremely long wearing and amazingly pigmented!

Second pick is Limecrimes “wicked” velvetine, retails for £13.50 from cocktailcosmetics.co.uk, a deep red with slight brown undertones, this is a liquid lipstick so goes on like a gloss as drys to a Matte finish but surprisingly not drying on the lips at all! and lasts literally all day with just one application, I especially love this if I’m going out to eat as I know It will stay put!

Third on the list is a new favorite of mine thanks to the recommendation from my gorgeous girl Lois! This is Makeup revolutions vamp lipstick in the shade “100% Vamp” you can purchase this from MakeupRevolution.co.uk for just £1!!!!! this is a very close dupe of macs cyber lipstick just with more of a creamy finish! A gorgeous deep plum I just cant get enough of it!

The last lipstick of the bunch is NYX, soft matte lip cream in “Transylvania” (£5.50) This is also a liquid lipstick so apples like a gloss and doesn’t budge at all! It’s a deep deep wine colour, so pretty and will be forever a lipstick I reach for!

So my last Autumn lip essential is actually a lipliner! Nightmoth by Mac cosmetics, (£12.00) I actually wear this liner with all of the above lipsticks it’s extremely versatile great for a ombré lip effect or just lining the lips normally! I personally find it essential with any dark lip colour as you especially don’t want the lipstick smudging or bleeding all round your mouth so this will defiantly keep it looking crisp & beautiful!

So that’s my go to Autumn lip colours! I hope you all enjoy them and look forward to rocking them over the coming months

Much love dolls!

Make up Revolution – I ♡ Makeup “Death By Chocolate” REVIEW!

I’ve been very excited to try this palette, it got released the day after I’d put in an order for some other MUR goodies, and as I didn’t want to have to pay the shipping for this palette alone, I decided to wait until my next order. So its finally here, I’ve photographed it, swatched it, worn it, so now here’s the review!

I ❤ Make up by Makeup Revolution “Death by Chocolate” Eye-shadow Palette £7.99 from http://www.makeuprevolutionstore.com

The palette comes in a cardboard sleeve, with a viewing window where you can see the palette. On the back of the box there is a display of the colours found inside the palette.

So I’m sure as you can see for yourself, that this palette was probably inspired by the ‘Chocolate Bar’ eyeshadow palette by Too Faced. It’s very similar in size, and the layout of the eyeshadows is somewhat similar too, with both palettes having 16 colours in total, and both having bigger sized highlight shades. The shadows don’t smell of chocolate like the Too Faced one does, but I can live with that!

Inside the palette you will find a clear slip with the names on the shadows. I really like this, as it’s a nice touch, and allows you to easily learn the names of your favourite shades 😉 There is a mirror on the inside, and as I said before, the highlight shades are bigger than the rest of the eyeshadows. This palette is perfect for day to day wear, as it has your base colour/highlight, matte transition shades, a variety of beautiful lid colours and dark mattes for the perfect smokey eye. I’ll definitely be taking this with me when I go away this weekend, as it has everything I need!

Swatches: Natural light, Samsung s5 phone camera. No primer.

Verdict:

I’m already in love with this palette and can see myself using alot for daily neutral looks, possibly even more dramatic stuff using the darker shades. A couple of the matte shades needed a couple of swipes before there was anything to swatch, but I have found that to be a very universal problem with affordable eyeshadow palettes, and have learned to use a heavier hand. Once you swipe it a couple of times, it’s absolutely fine. The consistency of the eyeshadows are quite creamy, they’re soft and very blend-able. You can blend out the intensity of the shimmer shades quite easily, so to avoid that, pat on the shimmer shadows rather than swiping. I think this is a beautiful palette, especially for £8. The packaging is perfect, it’s good for travelling, and the eyeshadows stay put all day. Yet another amazing product by the amazing Make up Revolution.

Hi Beautifuls!

I’m Lois, you may know me off Instagram, but it’s hard to really tell you about myself on just a photo caption, so here you’ll be able to get to know me better, as well as in depth reviews and the occasional tutorial!

 I’ve teamed up with my friend Elarner and together we created “Beautiful Darkness ” The name inspired by both  being pale ladies with dark hair! We’re both in the Make up artistry industry, so we thought putting our passion for make up together in one place could be a pretty cool thing! We hope you think so too!

So more about me. I’m 22, I live in Surrey, which is on the border of London, I’m a self taught MUA. I have 2 beautiful children, both boys. When it comes to make up I am a hardcore drugstore junkie. I love me some affordable yet quality make up that doesn’t break the bank. You can expect a lot of reviews on make up under £10.

I’m also a big fan of out of the ordinary make up. I find having rainbow eyeshadow and blue lips way more fun than a neutral look! But now and again I rein it in a bit and try and go natural 😁

Other than that I can’t think of much else. But I’m sure you’ll learn more about me through reading my blog posts, and future videos. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and we are so excited to have you join us on this exciting journey! Love & Kisses

Lois.
