Flutter Lashes & Ronnie Red Lips

Standard

Hey Guys, 

I Went into TK MAXX recently and was really pleasently suprised to find they had an amazing re stock in the beauty department. Personally i love having a mooch in TK’s because you can find really cool stuff for half the rrp… 

Whilst i was in there i picked up some really nice Eylure lashes, im not really a fan of wearing lashes (even though i own like 50 packs.. LOL) but these i really wanted to try out! 

Image

So i had a 18th birthday party to go too last weekend, and as i was dying to try these out, a party was the best way i can showcase these stunning lashes 🙂 

PARTY LOOK:

  • First i cleansed my face with NO7 skin melting cleanser for normal/dry skin.
  • I then applied MUA matte perfect primer to the whole of my face
  • I dabbed on some concealer to a couple of red blotches – Not sure what the brand is 
  • Rimmel wake me up foundation is my favorite high street foundation! I applied this to the whole of my face, blending down the neckline ( My pet hate is un blended foundation!)
  • I then set the foundation with MUFE HD setting powder, Buffering it all over to ensure i dont have any white excess showing! (Very expensive but worth every penny!!!!!) 
  • I always contour, i swept the shader up my cheek bones only this time though! then highlighted the temples with topshop glow ( my new favorite product) 
  • I applied mua eye primer to my eye lids all the way up to my brow bone 
  • If noone has used MUA before! Then get down to your loal superdrug and have ago! its amazing, i used the MUA eyeshadow palette ”starry night” unfortunatly they havnt put the shade colours on the palette so i carnt tell you exactly what i used – BUT i applied a light silver as a base over the lid up too the crease, i then blended a shimmery dark blue into the crease blending upwards, and then darkening the edge of the crease with a darker graphite grey… 
  • I then lined my water line with mac pro longwear liner in black ice 
  • Then again under the water line with the lightest silver on the palette
  • Finally i cut the lashes down size, form the inside so they didnt loose there FLUTTER 
  • Applied Revlon lash glue (it dries clear, which is why i use this, i also used eylure lash glue) i let the glue set for a couple of seconds
  • Then using tweezers i carefully applied the lashes to my lash line, 
  • Then blended in with mac penulitium Liner 
  • Last but not least i applied a slick of ronnie red Lipstick to give my look colour and UMPH

 

NEXT TIME I WILL DO A PICTURE TUTORIAL I JUST DIDNT HAVE THE TIME

Sorry if i have babbled a bit and/or not explained myself properly, havnt tried to explain how to do my make up yet… so this is a first 🙂

Next time i will do better.. Promise 😉

London Fashion Week A/W 2013

Standard

Okay so thought i would have a look at what went on with the London Fashion Week Beauty Looks…. Im a little behind but i thought i would blog my thoughts on one particular look that caught my eye and probably anyone elses who has had a look 🙂

Image

Okay… So Make-up illustrations at Vivienne Westwood 

“As if we were drawing make-up straight onto paper,” explained make-up artist Val Garland who paled down faces, doing the reverse on the dark skin models, before drawing on black outlines and filling them in with primary blues, reds and yellows for the statement make-up at Vivienne Westwood.

I did a double take at this one, at first i thought it had been photo shopped but then looked too see it was Val Garland for Vivienne Westwood, It screams VW, it stands out, its different and its creative… I love it, it reminds me of a sort of Picasso take on make up artistry,

Hey Guys

So today iv been doing a little research on the net and came across a couple of haul vids on youtube from IMATS LA 2013.. I was intrigued as i want to go to IMATS LONDON this year! 

One item had caught my eye, i had heard of this before, as its famously known for been used by Kim Kardashian…. I Thought it would be OTT Expensive so didnt really bother looking into it! 

But she said it cost her $20 for quite a big tub! Interesting! So i had a look and its not expensive at all! But would love to know your thoughts on this item before i buy 🙂 

Im always skeptical with new products and like too hear about them before 🙂

MUA 1 POUND LIPSTICKS

Standard

Okay! Now i used these lipsticks a while back when MUA first came on the scene, and i wasnt impressed, the colours came out like lip balms than lipsticks hardly any colour not very pigmented! So since MUA became alot bigger and well known they started improving there products, LIPTICKS, been one of these products… I notice the tube is alot bigger and heard they were more pigmented! I put off buying some as i was a little let down the last time BUT i did purchase the LIPBOOM range which had the lipsticks attached and they were VERY pigmented and different to the last lipsticks i had purchased! So i went into superdrug the other day and decided it was finally time to give MR MUA another chance on there lipsticks, there wasnt a vast range as they had sold out but i managed to get 3 colours i was very happy with, Unfortunaly they do not name there colours they are simply SHADE 3, SHADE 12 AND SHADE 15!

I have to say i am amazed! They are highly pigmented, soft on the lips and long lasting… Just as good as my high end products such as MAC or BOBBI BROWN!

iv done some rough swatches so you can see what they look like! But i 100% recommend these…

Shade 12                               Shade 15                        Shade 3

Image

This is SHADE 12, its a pale pink with glitter! Very nice for a night out, i thought the glitter might not be very noticeable but it is! Its not fine glitter so if you do not like that grainy feel on your lips then you probably wont like this lipstick, i did find however it really exfoliated my lips, i have really dry lips so was really happy with this!

Image

This one is SHADE 3 my favorite as i love bright in your face colours! I will be using this one for nights out or if i need a pick me up, nothing cheers me up like a nice bright lippy!

This one i found was very shimmery, very bright but smooth and soft on your lips, it goes on perfectly you only need to apply one layer as its such a heavy pigmented colour!

Image

This one is SHADE 15

Its a gorgeous peachy pink colour unlike the others this one is VERY Matte and bright!

Its a stunning colour, and would look amazing on darker skin, it really stands out!

Same as the other you would only need one coat as highly pigmented!

I honestly carnt get over how great these lippys are!! I will most definatly be purchasing some more now iv tried them out!

Please note: i did not use a brush for these i just applied straight from the tube as these lipsticks are more intended for quick application and on the go, Plus not everyone uses a brush so i think its nice to see how they go on…

Thanks guys … More to come 🙂
