I was feeling fresh faced and happy as the sun was shining outside my window. I had just painted my nails a glossy pink and metallic periwinkle blue, and I thought ‘this looks great I should do this on my eyes’ and that’s exactly what I did.

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

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 .)
