Hey guys! Recently I’ve been going for a chilled out, peachy glow. This is my usual face, in other words the make-up that I’ve been wearing everyday to uni! Quite natural, fresh and springy. I’ve been leaving my hair in it’s natural state to try and restore it to a decent condition. I like the fact that my ombre from last year is still kind of visible!
♥ Peach dream touch mousse blush from Maybelline in Apricot
♥ MAC lipstick in Shy Girl, a warm peachy brown
♥ Gel eyeliner blacktrack from MAC
As you can see my eyebrows are – ahem – being left as naturally “bushy” to keep in line with the natural look. Definitely need to groom them up a bit soon!
Also think I should talk a bit about the E-Magazine I have recently published along with Tamara from The Glam and Glitter, Victoria from Victoria’s Vintage, Marie, Holly, Kitty and Laura from Barcelona…olé! In it you’ll find fabulously fresh Spring and Summer trends as well as some beauty tips all lovingly topped off with a gorgeously girlish dreamy design by myself! Every sale we make will send 10% off to the lovely folks at Marie Curie. So if that floats your boat, download it here!
So my mum came to me today asking for a new look as she has a Christmas Party at work tonight. She has really gorgeous blue eyes so we wanted to do something that would make her eyes really striking. We found makeupgeek’s tutorial to make blue eyes popand, using our own variations of the shades, this is what we came up with….
No7’s Stay Perfect eyeshadow in 35 Comet
No7’s Stay Perfect eyeshadow in 65 Truffle
Mac’s All That Glitters (sorry it looks a state, almost panned cos I love it so much!)
Mac’s Blanc Type for the eyebrow highlight
Mac’s Powerpoint eyepencil in Prussian
No7 High Shine Lipgloss in Smile
Maxfactor lip base (lasts for hours).
Here is the pictures from the purple smokey eye I did. It’s not a strong look as far as the S.E spectrum goes, but it’s a nice toned down look for summer evenings.
I really like the smokey eye concept as it can be applied to so many colours. Bourjois do a great range of 3-tone smokey eye pallettes ranging from pink to brown to green and to turqoise. The best thing to do is think about your skintone and hair colour.
I’ll also be doing a brown smokey eye seeing as autumn is coming up next, and a proper black full-extent smokey eye because us girls still love it!
Until next time,
