Today on Violet Vision: How to do Violet’s Make Up.

Hi everyone and welcome to Violet Vision.

This is the first episode and today I’m going to show you how I do my make up.

Step one is to style your hair and make sure it’s out of your face.

Next I’m going to apply some foundation.

Make sure you get a good even coverage so you have a good base to work with for the rest of the tutorial.

I should also mention that the tips I’m going to give you today aren’t necessarily the best way to do your make up, this is just how I do my everyday make up.

I’m not a make up artist so there you go.

Pin your fringe back is the next step, it’s probably a good idea if you are going to put working with the top part of your head as well.

No body really sees the top of my head so sometimes I’m lazy and don’t bother but you might not have a fringe so there you go.

Next step is applying concealer, I like to apply it under my eyes. I tend to stay up late blogging a lot so there go the dark circles.

Any concealer will do the trick here but I prefer to use the ones with the little brushes and just use my fingers to smooth it in properly just because I think it gives a bit more control.

And I make sure to get it in the little creases in the inner corners of my eyes just so there are no weird dark spots.

You can use it for pimples too of course.

Next step is applying finishing powder. I prefer to use mineral powder because it goes nicely on my skin and suits the colour of my skin.

The next step is is mascara, very important!

I usually apply several coats of mascara because my lashes are non-existent. You can just apply one or apply throughout the tutorial.

I like to put on some after I’ve applied my false lashes.

You can clean up any mistakes just by getting a cotton bud and dipping it in water and then rubbing the stray mascara off.

Good as new.

Now you need to curl your lashes. I’m using the electric one from thousand hour lashes because it works for me. Whatever works well for you is good as well. You just need to heat it up for around 10 seconds before you use it.

I used to use the little scissor ones as well but I kept pinching myself so I think this is definitely the safer option.

If you want to apply blush this is the time to do it. A lot of the time I don’t use blush but if you like the extra doll like look this helps. I flush very easily so I don’t usually bother.

Now we’re going to apply the false lashes I’m using 1000 hour lashes.

You’ll need some glue as well. A good tip for false lashes is to actually fit them to your eye and cut off the extra. Some lashes are really long or even too short and you’ll look a little silly if they hang off the edge.

Basically you just apply the glue and press on. Some glues will need a few minutes to dry so wait around 20 seconds to wait for the glue to get tacky before you apply.

My glue is a bit crap so the only way to get it to stick is to put them straight on.

It’s by no means the best glue but it’s the only glue that I’m not allergic to.

So what you need to do is just apply a little bit of glue to the bone edge of your lashes.

You can either use your fingers or tweezers to apply them.

I like to use my fingers because I’m very uncoordinated with tweezers.

So just pop the inner corner on first and press it down.

Make sure that it’s in the right place and word your way to the edges. You want to get the lashes as close to the lash line as possible.

Make sure to get a glue which dries clear. You can see all of the white bits there so you’d end up with white bits everywhere.

So now we’re going to apply lip colour.

I use a lip stain or the base so I can choose how bright I want the colour to be depending on my mood.

Again I like to just put it on with my finger because I think it’s the easiest way to get the shape you want.

Of course the drawback to this is that you end up with a pink finger so make sure to wash it off.

Now applying the shine colour to the lips.

So this is pretty much just to give the lips some shine and make them pop.

Now I’m going to apply the black eyeshadow to the eye.

What you’re going to need is an angled eyeshadow brush and some black shadow. You can use eyeliner but I prefer shadow because it’s easier to blend.

So what you want to do is load up your brush and draw a line right above where you applied the lashes and extend it out a bit.

You don’t want it to be super dark, just a little bit to give a bit of mystery.

And just put a little flick at the side following the line of the lashes.

So now I’m going to apply the pink shadow.

Just the same pink blush that I sued on my cheeks but now for the eyes.

I’m going to be using a medium rounded brush to apply it and basically what I’m going to be doing is loading up the brush and giving the entire eye a sweep.

This is the main colour we’re using. So as you go just blend into the black you already put down so it gives a nice gradient.

Blending is really the key to this look.

The brushes I’m using are from EcoTools, their tagline is earth friendly tools and they’re actually my favorite at the moment.

They’re really light so you can take them traveling everywhere. So there you go, that’s how the pink goes.

Now we’re going to apply the white shadow.

And you need the angled brush again and obviously the white shadow.

Again this is where I point out that I’m not a professional make up artist and this is just how I do my make up.  Load your brush with white.

Pop some eyeshadow in the inner corner. You want to blend it in to the pink you already laid down.

And make sure you get a little tiny bit below the eye as well. This is where the angled eyeliner brush is really handy to get right into that corner.

What this will do is make your eyes appear a little wider set than they are so they look big and cute.

Now it’s time to unpin your fringe again. Obviously if you didn’t have a fringe to begin with you can probably skip this step.

Give it a good brush out and you’re ready to go to a meet up or a night on the town.

I hope you enjoyed my first tutorial and I’m looking forward to what you have to say about it.

I hope this was a useful video, please check out the blog post linked in the description for more information and tutorials.

Thanks so much for watching.


Update- 1000 Hour Lash Glue and Heated Eyelash Curler

So if you are a regular visitor here you’ll remember a few weeks back I had a horrible experience with some 1000Hour eyelash glue. Read my review here.

So after emails back and forth with the company that owns 1000Hour (ChemCorp) they were very helpful and apologetic about the allergy. They even sent me a little care package for my troubles! They refunded the money I spent on the glue originally and covered my Doctors costs and the medicine so I wasn’t out of pocket. What made me really happy was that they sent me some complimentary gifts to apologize ^_^

I received a cute little heated eyelash curler which I’ve been eyeing off for a while
Image no longer available.
And eyebrow tweezers with a built in light.
I don’t pluck my eyebrows so I gave the tweezers to my Mum. I have road tested the eyelash curler though!

Firstly I decided that the plain black was a bit boring so I deco’d it 😀 Much cuter no?
The curler comes with a cleaning brush, but there isn’t anywhere to store it so I’ll probably loose it! So here is what my eye looks like without anything on it.

The instructions say that you should apply mascara first and then turn the curler on. You wait 15 seconds for it to heat up. This is my eye with plain mascara:

There is a little light on the curler to indicate when it’s switched on and the AAA battery was supplied in the pack. I think the size is more convenient than a traditional scissor shaped curler, I can store it with my mascaras and eye pencils rather than having to find space for a traditional curler’s odd shape.

Ok so after it’s heated up you use it as if you were applying mascara. Face the heated comb on your lashes and press them upwards. Hold them there for a few seconds and you’re done! I repeated it a few times on each eye. The comb doesn’t get overly hot which was a nice surprise because I was worried about burning myself with my clumsiness XD It was still hot enough to curl and the plastic guard makes it very difficult to touch your skin with the coil. It has 2 heat settings controlled by the switch on the side.

This is after curling:
After adding a final coat of mascara:
The verdict:
I wasn’t expecting to like it because I thought the concept was a little strange but in the end I really liked the result! It was very easy to use and I think it did just as good of a job as a standard scissor one. I like that it doesn’t feel as damaging as a normal curler and the best part: There’s no way to accidentally pinch your eyelid with it! ^_^

It’s made it’s way into my standard make up kit, so that’s a thumbs up from me! Edit: You can buy one from Priceline for RRP$19.95.

Have you guys ever used one of these or have you used 1000 hour lash glue?
