Is it weird that a 40+ old woman likes One Direction? They Stole My Heart! (See what I did there? That's my fave song of theirs.)
I'm excited to show you the One Direction makeup collection, "Up All Night" from Markwins!
The kit comes packaged in a collectible, reusable tin with some picture suggestions on ways to use all the goodies inside.
Of course, the first thing I had to do when I opened the collection was play with the nail polish! This is Na Na Na, an iridescent marine blue.
On my ring finger, I layered it over black, which makes it more turquoise. On my other fingers, I did a black French tip, and then painted everything with Na Na Na - so the top part of the nail is three coats of Na Na Na by itself, and the tip is over black, with a black stripe. I freehanded the logo.
Now, lets get on with all the makeup, and two makeup looks I did to show you what it can do!
Kids still Rave, right? Glowsticks and housemusic... ok, I'm old. The pink lipstick on its own is drying on my craggy old lips, but I like it much better with a swipe of the gloss on top.
Stand Up, the denim blue eye and body crayon, is my favorite part of the kit. It's creamy and highly pigmented. I used it as eyeliner in both looks, and it didn't irritate my eyes. You can also use it with the cool stencils that came with the set to make some One Direction body art!
Wow, did I get a tan? or maybe it's just my weird lighting. My first look is more of a party look, with glittery blue eyeliner and bright pink lips.
I wish the kit had come with a glitter fix and MOAR glitter!
The second look I created was a no-makeup makeup look to go hang out with my friends.
I still used some Stand Up on my eyes, but instead of using the pencil directly on my face, I used a push brush to get just a little bit off the pencil at a time, and just tightline with it.
I paired the Markwins One Direction kit with more prestige makeup for this look, including Laura Mercier face primer, Tarte Smooth Operator eye base, Smart FX Smart Eye Wrinkle Lift, It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation in Light/Medium and the CC Radiance Palette. I also used the ELF brow kit in medium again.
