Hey there my loves, hope you all are having a good week so far! How are you guys liking the time change ? I am loving the waking up an hour later thing, but not really digging the whole darkness at like 5 thing… that really blows! At least in reality I can get up at 7 now instead of 6….. yay for adulting probs! Anywho, so I decided to write this blog post today on an “Instagram baddie makeup look“. Some of you, including myself at the beginning, are probably thinking, “what the hell is that?”. I literally thought the exact same thing when I first heard of the term. I actually had to google what the heck this even meant because it became so popular recently over Youtube and throughout blog posts. An “Instagram Baddie” literally means an individual who has their eyebrows on fleek, the dark lips, the rebellious and on point clothing, as well as the matte eyeshadow. So! I decided to try out this neat look for myself, and went to Shoppers to grab some black intense lipstick. This look is deff intense and not my usual “go to” that is for sure, but I mean why not move out of your comfort zone once in a while? Alright, shall we get into this badass post or what?
So, to start off this “baddie” look, I decided to just wip my hair up out of my face… get that shit out of the way first, then went on to applying all of my face makeup. For my eyeshadow, I decided to use my lovely “Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Palette”. I stayed away from any shimmery eyeshadows because this whole “baddie” thing is not about that life haha. I literally love every single one of these beautiful shades and thought this would be super appropriate for this intense look that I was going for. I focused more on the last few shade located towards the right end of the palette such as the maroon and orange colours. I decided to not gear towards the black eyeshadows for this look, as I wanted to stay away from the “dark” and “gothic” look, focusing more on the “dramatic” and “intense” look instead.
I purchased this gorgeous palette at Sephora for $55.00 but honestly guys, it is literally worth it. The pigmentation is unreal, however, that being said, you need to make sure that you are properly taking the time to blend the eyeshadows all together nicely. You do not want to be left with any harsh or dark lines whatsoever.You want to ensure that your lids are all primed up before applying any of these shades.
First , you are going to take this gorgeous and subtle cream colour, and apply this on the entire lid. This is a very gentle colour and suits well for a base shade.
Next, you are going to apply this orange shade into the crease of your eyelid. I literally am inlove with this colour. It is so intense but once blended looks beautiful on your lid. I make sure to use my blending brush to blend this shade well into the crease, acting as a transition shade.
Afterward, you are going to take this intense maroon shade and apply this in the crease as well, making sure you only keep it within the crease and not exceed this. The orange and maroon look absolutely beautiful blended together and create just the right amount of intensity for this “baddie” look. I also applied this maroon shade to the outer corner triangle of my lids as well, creating a bit of a smoky look.
After applying these beautiful shades altogether in your crease, you are going to take the exact same maroon colour and line the bottom of your lashes. This helps to add more depth and definition to your eyes without them looking too intense. I then went in with my “L’oreal Voluminous Liner Noir Liquid Eyeliner”, and applied this to the top of my lids, ensuring that I focus a lot on my “winged look”. I really wanted to create an intense winged look for this specific makeup look and I absolutely love how easily it is to apply this liner. I purchased mine at Shoppers for I believe around $10.00.
I then also went in with my lovely “L’oreal Telescopic Mascara in Carbon Black” and applied this to my top and bottom lashes. Once my lashes were dry I applied a second coat to the tops of my lashes, helping to create more volume and length.
Now, this is the fun part. I literally had so much fun applying this lipstick it was insane. If any of you beauts know me well enough, you know I love sticking to my nude lipsticks or pinky shades….. never black…ever. I went hunting at Shoppers for a black lipstick and surprisingly it was more difficult than I thought it would be! After searching for a solid 10 minutes I finally came across an intense shade that I absolutely fell inlove with. This shade is called “Stone Fox“and is by NYX Cosmetics within then Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Collection. I paid around $11.00 for this guy, but it is literally gorgeous. It is super easy to apply considering it is an extremely dark lip shade, and feels amazing on your lips! I also bought a lip liner as well… well actually…. I realized it was an eyeliner once I bought it but I mean come on… it’s waterproof you can’t go wrong. I bought the “NYX Retractable Eye Liner” in the shade “Gray” and lined my lips before applying my lipstick. Guys……..GUYS. Like I literally look like a bad a** b*tch. I could not even get over the finished look of this! I do not know if I will ever have the balls to actually wear this in public, but it turned out SO well. I then threw on some ripped jeans, cut a slit just under my bum for that rebellious look, and put on a black bodysuit. I also found a choker as well and threw this on cause…. well why not!?
Voila, you are not ready to hit the streets as an Instagram “baddie” . I really hope you guys enjoyed this look as much as I did creating it. What would also top off this look would be applying some false lashes just to create more of a dramatic effect.
