The ‘Would you rather’ Tag.

Uncategorized

Good Afternoon Beauty-ful people!

I decided to do the ‘Would you rather Tag‘ for you all! Now instead of tagging individual bloggers, I would like to tag ALL of you beauty-ful people to do this too!

So …. Lets begin..

Questions

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or Nice hair and no make-up?

Messy Hair and Nice Makeup. I would try and get away with the wind-swept look!

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?

Oh my goodness! I think I would rather shave my eyebrows because I could just draw them on with my favourite brow products!!

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?

MAC all day, everyday.

4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80’s perm?

Lipgloss/liner look definitely. I think if I had a perm, my head would be the size of an large exercise ball. 

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?

eeeeeek! worst nightmare! I would choose an obvious foundation line as I could easily blend it into my neck with my fingers!!

6.Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?

I would say MC hammer pants, they look extremely comfortable……

7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can’t be covered?

Weird tan lines that cant be covered… because I could at least try and cover them with another self tan!

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?

Bad hair colour definitely. I love my hair and to have a bad cut would probably make me cry… 

9.Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever?

Probably twitter because I dont really use it. Ive never gotten into the swing of it!

10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?

I would rather give up mascara! I prefer a flawless looking face!

So come on guys, I tag you all to do this… lets get it trending!

Mermaid shimmer

Uncategorized

So today I was experimenting with different colours in my Sleek I-Divine palette in shade ‘Vintage Romance’.

Mermaids are so majestic and beautiful so I decided to recreate this look on my gorgeous twin sister, Jess.

I began by priming her eyes with the ELF eyelid primer in shade ‘sheer’… This helps to make the eyeshadow colours pop and last all day!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2015/01/img_1105.jpg

So beginning with my first colour of ‘Lust in LA’, which is a gorgeous shimmery gold/brown, I applied this all over the lid using a a fluffy brush… I then applied the gorgeous red glittery shade to the centre of the eyelid and smoked it out towards the corner. Using the highly pigmented royal blue shade, I applied this to the corner and crease and blended all of the colours together with a fluffy brush.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2015/01/img_1112.jpg

I applied Jess’ favourite mascara and filled in her brows to finish of the look.

This is a perfect going out look, pair it with a red lip for a Glamorous feel.

Festive Maroon Smokey Eyes

Uncategorized

Happy New Year!

The festive season means plenty of parties so here is my festive look for the season.

I love anything maroon as it just reminds me of christmas. Its a bold colour that works well for all skin types and can be easily dressed up or down.

I began by priming my eyes with Urban Decay’s primer potion and began by applying the first shade from the Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette,Strange‘, all over my lids. Using Makeup Revolutions ‘I heart chocolate’ palette, I used the shade ‘What a way to go’ which is a gorgeous maroon colour, in the corner of my eye and crease. I blended this out with a fluffy brush to really create the smokey effect. Using a smaller detail brush I applied the shade ‘Love Torn’, which is a red/brown colour, in my crease and outer V, I then used another fluffy brush to blend this all together.

Using Ted Baker’s gold eyeliner, I lined my bottom lashes to add some sparkle and pop to compliment the festive deep red colours.

I then used Ted Baker’s liquid eyeliner in Black to line my upper lash line into a winged look. I use small strokes to get the perfect and precise detail. Once finished, I curled my lashes and applied my favourite mascara, Max Factor’s max volume and high definition mascara, making sure to get right to the base of my lashes to lengthen them further.

Red smokey eye

Voila! The look is complete! It’s as simple as that…

Natural glam New Years Eve Makeup tutorial

Uncategorized

It’s almost here!

Another year almost over, and it has been amazing!
Now, I love New Years Eve, welcoming in the new year with family and friends but when I have a large amount of makeup on, I feel a bit self conscious of it getting all over my face after one too many cocktails……..

So, I have come up with a natural glam look that is fuss free and is easy to maintain all night without it being too heavy and needing constant touch ups…

Let’s begin!

To start, I applied my favourite foundation by Maybelline in the shade True Ivory using my Mac 187 brush to create a flawless base.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0836.jpg

Then using my Makeup Revolution concealers in the lightest shade, I covered my dark circles and it also acts as a great highlight to add more definition to my cheekbones.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0835.jpg

I filled my brows in with my ELF brow kit in the shade dark and began work on my lids…

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0847.jpg

To start, I used a shimmery white base all across my eyelid, not going up to my brow bone…

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0839.jpg

I then used a champagne colour in the centre of my lid and blended this towards the corner. I then chose a shimmery dark brown and concentrated this in the outer corner of my eye in a V shape. Using a fluffy blending brush, I softened this out to create an elegant smokey eye.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0834.jpg

Using my Ted Baker felt tip eyeliner, I lined my lash line into a cat eye using small strokes to create a flawless line.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0845-0.jpg

And finally, I used my favourite mascara by Max Factor to really add some volume to my lashes… And I didn’t even have to curl them!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0846.jpg

Now I love this look as I am not constantly worrying about my face all night! It’s natural and light but created amazing definition and sparkle for a celebratory day and night!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0842.jpg

I wish you all a very happy new year always remember to follow your dreams..

Ted Baker and Makeup Revolution Haul.

Uncategorized

Wow, what a Christmas!

After eating way too much turkey and mince pies, I can safely say that I have had one of the best christmas’ ever.

Christmas is a time for family (and turkey) and I have thoroughly enjoyed the festive season so far.

I have been extremely lucky this year and received some amazing beauty products that I cannot wait to share with you!

Two words. Ted Baker.

OH MY GOODNESS, I received the most gorgeous vanity makeup box from my mum and dad including so many amazing Ted Baker products!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0805.jpg

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0806.jpg

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0807.jpg

I have to say, the quality of the makeup is outstanding. My favourites are definitely the deep red lip crayon that glides on effortlessly and the felt tip eyeliner that creates the perfect cat eye.

A must have for 2015.

I have also received a selection of concealers by Makeup Revolution and the pigment of each different shade is fantastic. I use the lightest shade and it covers my under eye circles flawlessly.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2014/12/img_0804.jpg

I just had to mention these few products as I have been so excited about using them everyday since christmas…. stay tuned for a natural glam New Years Eve makeup tutorial coming soon…

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone,

Christmas reindeer

Uncategorized

Ok, so for Christmas Eve my family chose to have a fancy dress night – christmas edition.

So I began looking on youtube for some makeup inspiration. I came across some reindeer makeup tutorials and absolutely fell in love!

To create the cute reindeer look, I began by applying a light foundation all over my face using my Mac stippling brush. Then, using my NYX eyeliner in a matte light brown, I detailed my nose and filled it with a white eyeliner. I also covered my forehead and cheekbones with the same white colour to create a main focal point.

Using my Benefit Hoola bronzer and a large fluffy brush, I covered my cheekbones and my hairline to darken my skin but keeping the focus on the white areas. I applied the same white dots to my cheeks and forehead the created a nose and mouth using my Revlon liquid eyeliner in Black.

My favourite part of this look was the eyes, I kept it quite minimal with light eyeshadow and white eyeliner but added a set of Katy Perry Lashes to emphasises the Bambi like appearance! I added a simple cat eye look with the same liquid eyeliner and finished of the look by adding a set of antlers.

This makeup look was so simple and easy to do and is a great and fun look using makeup that Everyone has in their draws.

Merry Christmas everyone!
Stay tuned for my christmas makeup haul…..
