Dior Makeup

I know in the beauty world we have all seen this makeup look before at least one time-it's from a dior runway show.. but I'm not too sure what year it was done. I have a picture folder on my computer filled with makeup inspiration photos, and photo's of makeup looks that I want to try out, so finally after several months of having that folder, I opened it up two nights ago and grabbed a bunch of makeup and recreated the look. I don't mind the way it turned out, I know I can do better then that but for now I'll leave it at that. Let me know what you think of the look, it's super easy & if you want to see a tutorial on the look then feel free to ask. I obviously don't have all of the products that they used, but I tried to just use what I had. I didn't have any lashes close to the ones that the models had on so in the photo I'm wearing THREE pairs of falsies (my eyes were so heavy LOL)!

Fly- Rihanna & Nicki Minaj Inspired Makeup

Once I saw the makeup that Nicki Minaj had on in her and Rihanna's most recent music video I fell in love. This was the first makeup tutorial I have done that I re-created from a music video. I loved all the makeup in the video, but my all time favourite look out of all of them was the one Nicki Minaj was wearing in the beginning, with the glitter on her eyelid, bottom lashline then a warm slightly defined crease, & a baby pink lip. It was just stunning!
