Get your barbie on! Collab with Halimam27

Hey blog readers/followers


HAPPY NEW YEAR! 


I recently did a collab with a beautiful makeup artist on Instagram. For you guys who don't know what a collab is- its basically where we both do a similar or same look- but our own interpretations. Me and Halima both agreed on Barbie as its a little more creative using fun colours. 


Have a browse through our pictures and let us know in the comments below if we did barbie any justice! If you would like me to do more Collabs let me know which ones you would like to see. And just a quick update for you guys- hopefully my makeup tutorials should start soon as I have just ordered my new camera eek! So excited! 

This was my inspiration picture I found on google. I loved the contrast of lime and pink and this barbie was a brunette too! I decided to recreate it as I hardly use this colour green shadow and it can be quite daring to pull of. The eyeshadows I used were from the sleek ultra matt brights and dark palette. I love sleek palettes they are so pigmented and blend so easy. 


My inspiration picture.
Heres a picture of my 'barbie' without flash

without flash

With flash. I used Illamasqua intrigue blush to give a highlighted effect underneath the eyes and on the tops of the cheekbones. I applied mac silver dusk on top of this to add some shimmer and dimension to the look to avoid the face appearing flat. 
For the cheeks I used a bright almost florescent blush by sleek (the middle shade in the blush by 3 in pink sprint)


with flash, for the brows I used Illamasqua eyebrow cake in thunder





Halima used mac studio fix foundation and powder in nc25 to achieve a flawless finish. For the cheeks accesorize blush in starlet was used to give that bright pink flush. She used collections 2000 lip pencil to line her lips and boots 17 lipstick in pink power to get her barbie pout. For the shadow she used mac golden lemon pigment, the sleek acid palette and a loreal shadow in platinum beige. Halima used a gorgeous pink glitter to add sparkle to the eyes and the tops of her cheekbones. To open up the eyes and give the look the finishing touches she used Eylure lashes in 107.
