It’s Easter weekend and I’m sat with slippers on, hot chocolate in one hand and Cadburys creme egg in the other.
Too much chocolate?
I wanted to create a look that was inspired by Spring, but more so by nature. Everything comes alive in the Springtime, so im going ‘back to the roots’ (pardon the pun) with a beautiful green smokey eye.
So im starting off with this pretty shimmery bronze base shade from my Makeup Revolution palette and applying it all across my lid.
I’m using my fluffy blending brush which is perfect sweeping the colours and blending it flawlessly into my skin.
This little pocket palette is from Autograph by Marks and Spencers, aren’t these two colours so lovely together, very organic looking and fresh. The colours are highly pigmented and look beautiful.
I applied it using the same brush to my crease and outer corner. As I have green eyes, the colours just bounce off each other and emphasise my peepers.
Next up is this warmer green tone that I am going to apply over the top of that darker shade. This is going to brighten everything up and really turn me into a green goddess….
Or the hulk…
Im just applying that same shade to my lower lash line with a pencil brush and placed a highlighting white shade in my inner corner. This is going to brighten and awaken my eyes making them appear whiter and brighter.
Using my most favourite liquid eyeliner EVER.. the Loreal Super liner in black, im doing a simple and elegant wing emphasising on the outer corner to add drama.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate these lashes.
They’re by the brand Eylure and are possibly some of the prettiest shaped lashes I have ever used. I love how natural and feminine they look and those green lashes hidden in there are incredible. Perfect for this look.
Last step is mascara. Im using, again a favourite, the Maybelline Sensational mascara to really blend my real lashes in and to add some dimension to my bottom ones.
The Finished Results
Im so happy with how this look turned out. I thought it may be a little overpowering but it turned out quite subtle and smokey. For me, the lashes really bring the whole look together giving it such a girly and feminine feel whilst still looking very earthy and natural.
I would love to see what you lovelies think of this look and if you would like to see any more specific colour themes too!
I have been loving anything ROSE GOLD lately and jumped at the chance to create a make-up look for you guys. I think this colour combination is perfect for Spring, its so girly and pretty and looks ideal forany occasion.
For this look, I will be using my favourite palette by Makeup Revolution which includes 144 shades of HEAVEN!
If you guys have yet to get this little gem, then you can find HERE.
Here is the easy peasy video tutorial for you lovelies so you can learn step by step how to get this Rose Gold look.
Lets get Started….
And a photo montage because I love you guys….
So to start, I used a shimmery pink champagne colour all across my lid using my finger to apply and pack on the colour. I find that applying my base with a brush doesn’t give the same effect as using my fingers, its more pigmented and the colour appears more rich.
Next up I used a metallic soft pink shade in my crease and outer V, I used a fluffy brush to blend everything together and to create a seamless finish.
Using the same fluffy brush, I applied this beautiful rich gold colour to the centre of my lid and blended it out towards the outer corner of my lid. I love this shade as it adds a lovely bit of warmth to the look.
I then took a deeper darker pink shade and applied it over the colours in my crease and outer corner, this enhances and creates a depth to the look and a lovely smokey eye finish.
Using a small flat brush, I took that same shade along my bottom lash line to increase that depth and add some shadow.
As you can see, the colours blend perfectly together.
By adding a highlight colour in the inner corner, it makes the eye appear brighter and wider and more awake. I used a shimmery cream shade.
Ofcourse I had to do a winged eyeliner. This look is super girly and feminine so enhancing those eyelashes is a MUST.
Add a fave pair of lashes. Mine are by EyeCandy and are so beautiful, they are very flirty and have just enough length on the outer corner so it doesnt appear heavy.
Up next is mascara… a must. I use Maybellines Sensational mascara to create some drama compared with my subtle eyeshadow. This has to be one of the best mascaras I have ever had and I highly recommend this one!
Noticed how my false lashes and real ones blend together effortlessly?
I LOVE IT!
I added a super pretty pinky nude lipstick to my lips. Its by Ted Baker and I literally wear to every day. I thought it complimented the eyeshadow colours perfectly. The formula is really creamy and doesn’t dry out my lips at all.
I am in love with the finished result and cannot wait to wear it this Spring.
Have you guys created a look for this Spring?

Isn’t it a beauty?
So this is one of their chocolate palettes and it is actually strawberry scented – heaven.
The colours are so beautiful, from blues to pinks, it is perfection!
The palette is only £7.99 from Superdrug and it comes in 3 other colour creations.. Ps… I have the milk chocolate one already!
Ready for my Pink Fizz tutorial?!….
Let’s get started..
Begin with a primer, it’s makes your eyeshadow POP and stops the eyeshadow from creasing. I love the Too Facedshadow insurance… It works perfectly.
Place a strip of tape from the corner of the eye diagonally towards the eyebrow. This is going to create a define line and a crisp edge. I used this shimmery white shadow called bubbles all across my lid as base and in the inner corner as a highlight.
I took this pretty glittery pink shade and applied that to my crease with a fluffy brush….
To add some drama I added this bold brown shade called Cork to my lash line to contrast with the pink shade.
Using a black liquid liner, I lined my lash line to add definition and applied my fave mascara…
Want to see the finished look?
It’s super subtle and very pretty… Ideal for the upcoming festive season.
Dressed up or dressed down, this look will suit everyone.
I would love to know what you dolls think so let me know in the comments!

A dream is a wish your heart makes, la de da de da…..
The music from Cinderella gets me every time!
So for this look, I began by applying a cream eyeshadow base to my lids, then added a soft pastel blue to the outer corner. I then applied a deeper blue shade to my crease and blended everything together with a fluffy brush.
Using a small angled brush, I lined my lower lash line with this bright yellow shade which looked gorgeous.
Ready for the ball…
Who else wishes their hair was this long?
Tangled is another one of my faves. The songs are so catchy and I may just know all the words to the songs…..
For this beautiful look, I began by applying this gorgeous glittery gold shade to my lid as my base. Using a pencil brush, I applied a soft pink colour to the outer corner and crease then followed up by applying this super vibrant purple to my lower lash line and crease again, blending everything together.
3: Sleeping Beauty
Wish I looked so fresh faced after waking up from such a deep sleep..
For this pretty pink look, I began again with a cream eyeshadow base all over the lid and introduced a deep pink to my outer corner and crease. To achieve the delicate look, I blended the colour towards my inner corner and let the colour fade out.
I finally applied that same yellow shade to my lower lash line to add that pop of colour.
And that my lovelies is it! I plan on doing a lot more soon as they were so much fun to create!

You just had to have colourful eyeshadow. That meant wearing blues,purples, and pink eyeshadows…
Bravo to those who wore all three colors on at once…
So lets get started….
So looking a bit like a peacock, this look is all about the eyes and cheeks…
I started of with my Bourjois Foundation and applied concealer under my eyes to create a flawless look..
I then used a hot pink blush by MAC mixed with some hot pink eyeshadow by Wet n wild…
..alot of Hot Pink!
The blush was over emphasised so I brought the colour right across my cheek bones..
Again, I chose a lip shade to go alongside my cheeks…
I lined my lips then applied a bright pink Revlon lipstick to match.
As for the eyes, well….
I started off by priming my eyes with my Benefit primer then applied a shimmery white base.
I placed a bright blue shade in the corners and outer corners of my eyes, then applied a lighter aqua colour in the center of my lid. I blended these colours together then used a fluffy brush to apply a hot pink shade to my crease and inner corner.
I lined my lower lash line with a metallic blue eye liner and applied my fave Mascara – Benefit they’re real..
I finished the look by lightly filling in my brows, my eyeshadow and blush need to be the center of attention!
As for the hair…
