It was my birthday last week (wooooo whoooo) and I ended up receiving some wonderful gifts from my friends and family. I think they must know me very well as all together I received 3 lipsticks, and a lipstick gift box.
This is a review on The Illamasqua Lipstick Tramp. My friend pointed out she bought it because the name of the product reminded her of me ( and then she did her evil laugh), I am sure she was joking atleast I hope so! Continue reading
This look is about having sultry eye’s and a focal point of red “Valentines” Lips.
This is the kind of “date night” look I would wear, when I want to keep my make-up looking light but I also want add an little extra oomph to enhance the natural appearance of my eye’s, whilst keeping the focal point on my lips. After all that’s where the kissing happens……
This is the before of my eyebrows.
Recently Kate over at Glitz and Glam Guru , remarked on how she thought I had rather nice eyebrows. Of course when someone gives a compliment, like most women I’m sure, I tend to think “what on earth are they on about” but then I realized my eyebrows were drawn in, in the photo Kate was looking at of me.
Yes Valentines day is coming up. No I don’t have a Valentine but I do have my make-up!!!
This is one of the idea’s I came up with inspired by the day of love and there for extra pink. I have named this look “Lover’s Pink”, as there will be another look coming up I thought I should name them. I hope you enjoy
This eyeshadow by L’oreal is in the colour 172 Beige Shimmer. I bought this last year, as the job I had at the time I had to look glamorous but not overly made up. I thought this product was perfect. This is a very shimmery muted golden shade.
Make-up loves…….. sleek’s Candy cane this is an intense eye popping hot pink.
Annoyingly this is not conveyed in the photo’s I took. I think I need a better light, I played around with my settings for ages and this was the best picture I ended up with! You’ll have t trust me on this one, it is not a colour for the faint hearted. It would be great for summer, or to look extra funky on a club night out. Continue reading
Once upon a time we all watched our beloved Disney cartoons in a distant land called childhood (and perhaps we still do from time to time despite being “all grown up”). One thing I noticed was that Purple seams to be the “bad guys” colour. The evil Queen from Snow White has two hues of purple eyeshadow, as well as Ursula from The little mermaid who is quite literally purple!
I created this look inspired by, the badies of Disney.
How I did this:
- First press Inglot No.39 a light pink/purple into the centre on the eye lid
- Next take Inglot No.439 (a deeper purple) and place on the outer and inner third.
- Create a high winged shape
- Blend out well above the crease.
(Insure that the deeper colour doesn’t make the lighter pink too murky .)
