Pink Glitter Smokey Eye – Super Easy + Perfect for Beginners



It’s no secret that pink really is my favourite colour. I believe that you should always leave a little sparkle wherever you go and I think I did just that when I envisioned this look. As most of you know, I graduated last week Tuesday and I did this look on my eye (with a different set of lashes, which I regret – deeply) but nevertheless I loved how easy this was to do.

I did a series of different looks for graduation, but I feel that this one would be perfect for a date night or a prom look!

Purple & Orange Sunset Eye (Perfect for medium to dark skin tones) | Collab with Nydia Nel



If there is one thing I love, it’s a dramatic eye look. I’ve done a few in the past, however I’ve never experimented with colour before. I was approached by a fellow South African YouTuber, Nydia Nel on Instagram who asked me to recreate an eye look. I asked her why don’t we both do our take on this eye look so that we can do them for different skin tones (my skin tone is relatively darker than Nydia’s). Needless to say, with a week of preparation and a few struggles here and there, we both pulled it off and I could not be happier with the results. She put a lot of hard work into the video and it really shows in the stunning look she put out. Don’t forget to check her out below and subscribe to her channel!



For this look, we both had different takes on it. I went a bit more dramatic whereas Nydia focuses on more neutral mauve tones in her look. This is the beauty of make-up, it’s different for everyone. With that being said, I think both looks are definitely a great take on our recreation.

Make-Up Tutorial: Sultry Smokey Eye & Red Lip Valentines Day/Date Night Look

Ah, and as “single awareness day” slowly approaches, Deeanne decides to throw out not one, but two valentines day inspired looks! In case you missed it, I did a girly fun Essence One Brand Tutorial: Bubblegum Pink Valentines Day Make-Up look and today I wanted to do something a little bit out of my comfort zone, so I went into my sultry side and did a sultry smokey eye with a bold red lip!

I think that this week I will try one more make-up look before I start my back to school/varsity series. I am so excited to be going back to university because it is my final year and the year I have to start job hunting. I am nervous but calm at the same time because I know that God has a plan for me. I really want to go into journalism but I have been looking into teaching English abroad.





Gold Christmas Inspired Make-Up Tutorial With A Red Lip

It’s been a while.

Hello lovelies and welcome back to my blog. I am proud to announce that I have completed my third year of university (God willing, I really don’t want to qualify for a supplementary exam). I am so ready for Christmas and what better way to kick off the festive season than with a stunning red lip and gold eyeshadow combo?



I know that not all countries have access to YouTube so for those of you who don’t (or you’re too boring and don’t feel like watching my amazing video), here’s a quick run down of the products used in this video:

♡ Isabella Garcia Day Defense Moisturizer to prime the face.

♡ Benefit KaBrow in 04 for those brows, cleaned up with LA Girl Pro Conceal in Natural.

♡ The Body Shop All-In-One Tinted Concealer Primer/Instablur

♡ Decided to give SwiitchBeauty another try, so I used the SlaysForDays Palette on my eyes (the smell still bothers me though).

♡ Eyeliner from The Body Shop (it’s a star stamp liner but I wasn’t feeling that adventurous)

♡ False Lashes are the Eylure lashes (Kimberly Lashes)

♡ Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation in True Nude

♡ LA Girl Pro Conceal in Natural to conceal

♡ Catrice Cosmetics Sun Glow Bronzer

♡ Essence Cosmetics Matt Touch Blush in 010 Peach Me Up

♡ The Body Shop Drops of Glow highlight

♡ Essence Cosmetics Red Lip Liner

♡ L.O.V Cosmetics Kristina’s Red Lipstick

I have a few make-up tutorials coming your way very soon (I’m trying to finish up my Rimmel London foundation because I hate how it makes my skin look). I actually have one going up on my channel tomorrow so make sure you’re subscribed so you can be part of my little family. I am having a giveaway launching before Christmas which only applies to my subscribers and Instagram followers so be sure to keep an eye out! I have a new Instagram account too, called sincerelydeeannetheblog so please give me a follow!

Love and really missed you.

Kendall Jenner Inspired Red Lip Tutorial


Hi everyone!

I know that I’ve been away from my blog for quite some time but I just wanted to clarify that I am not dead, just under the weather and about to embark on September break which means more posts to come. I have been extremely busy in preparation for my driver’s license (pray for me because sometimes I drive and the car isn’t even in gear) and also this term was probably one of the most hectic since it was only 3 weeks and my lecturers just decided to leave me with a bunch of work to complete before final exams.

2 weeks ago I celebrated my 20th birthday and I felt so inspired to recreate this extremely mature look from Kendall Jenner. You can watch the full tutorial on my YouTube channel below, don’t forget to leave me a like and subscribe to my channel if you want to (please want to). If you don’t have access to YouTube, don’t worry about it I have the full low down here on my blog!

The Video — Press Play


I know YouTube isn’t widely available to everyone for a number of reasons so here’s the low down of what happens in this video. P.S: Yardley London SA has asked to repost this recreation on their social media channels so go follow them on Instagram and leave me some love when the photo goes live tomorrow! x

This was the look I recreated inspired by the gorgeous Kendall Jenner:


Primer — For Primer I opted for the Maybelline Baby Skin pore eraser, just to conceal my pores to give me a photo ready face. Kendall has absolutely flawless skin here so this just provides a good base to work with.

Moisturizer — Isabella Garcia Day Defense moisturiser came to my rescue, giving me a healthy glow so that powder and foundation does not dry me out.

Foundation — I used the Yardley London Airbrush foundation in the shade “Natural”. I built up the foundation, applying 2 coats instead of 1 for more coverage.

Concealer — I have been loving the L.A Girl Pro Conceal HD for concealing imperfections as well as brightening my under eye area. I’m not too sure about the shade I used but I will edit this post again so just stay tuned.

Powder — To set my concealer and foundation so that it didn’t cake or slide around everywhere I used the Design Compact Powder from Edgars in Soft Beige.

Eyeshadow — I used the Be Beautiful Cosmetics palette and a very dark brown to define my crease, however I just went all over my lid because I have hooded eyes and dragging the eyeshadow upwards would have smoked the eye which is what I didn’t want. I merely wanted to soften the look.

Eyeliner — I have a new favourite eyeliner! I love the Michelle Ori Paris “Feliner”. The tip is great and super sturdy as I hate applicators which move and can’t give me a sleek edge.

Lashes — I wanted the look to be as natural as Kendall’s but at the same time still give the lash impression so I went with Eyelure in 118/114.

Contour — I loved how harsh but strong Kendall’s contour was so I went in with my Design Compact Powder in the shade Mahogany. This made such a difference to my face as it slimmed it down and really defined my cheekbones, which are my best feature.

Lip — This bright red lip is thanks to Edgars Design Chubby Stick and I couldn’t find a number on the packaging so I do apologize but hey, what can you do?

The Finished Look:
