Look : Vintage Romance Sleek MakeUp

There are many different eyeshadow palettes out these days, you can buy a huge palette with 100s of colours or build your own palette buying single colours. I like creating my own palettes but you can’t go far wrong with Sleek Makeup palettes. Each uniquely different, perfectly named and highly pigmented.

Available in Superdrug, Boots aswell as other retailers. I have a number of these palettes and thought I would show you a daytime look using the Vintage Romance Palette.

  • Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
  • No7 Brilliantly Bare
  • Rimmed Match Perfection – Ivory
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • MAC Eyeshadow – Vanilla & Soba
  • Sleek Makeup : Vintage Romance Palette – A Vow in Venice & Love in London
  • L’Oréal Super Liner – Black Lacquer
  • Benefit Kohl Pencil – Onyx
  • L’Oréal Mega Volume Mascara : Miss Magna – Black
  • Model Co : More Brows – Medium/Dark
  • No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick – Brick Red

If red lipstick is too much for your daily look swap it out for something more subtle or a nude lipstick. To tone down the eyes skip the winged eyeliner and just use mascara.

Look: Dusky Pink (Autumn)

Dusky Pink is the colour to have this autumn, its on the catwalks in all forms but most importantly its inspiring beauty looks and nail varnish trends. As the lips go bolder is shades of berry eyes go softer is pink hues. I created this look with neutral lips and slightly smokey eyes instead of my usual black eyeliner.

Dita Von Teese Inspired Make up Look

A Sunday night with no kids and hoping to go out somewhere nice with the other half. I’m hoping a romantic meal but either way I have plenty of time to get ready as the other half is still stuck in work. What better way to relax and get in the mood for a great evening than doing my favourite pin up girl look. Nude eye shadow, black eyeliner with a flick and red lips. This time I went for a Dita Von Teese inspired look with minimum products but maximum results. Here is what I used:

  • Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Sensitive – Light
  • MAC Select Moisturecover – NW15
  • MAC Blot Powder – or any anti shine powder you tend to use.
  • Diego Dalla Palma Snow White Palette – Destiny and Battleground
  • Illamasqua Eye Liner Cake – Mislead
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil – Yeyo (Use this on the lower lash waterline to open your eyes up making them look bigger)
  • MAC Lip Pencil – Redd
  • MAC Lipstick – Russian Red (Simply the best red ever, I love all my red lipsticks but this is my go to colour.)

Back To School or Back To Work – Natural Beauty ( Vivo )

It’s time for school to start back, the summer holidays are coming to an end but that doesn’t been you have to look dull. Here is a natural back to school or back to work look that is simple and quick so you can have an extra 5 minutes in bed. The best thing about this look is you only need three shades of eye shadow, you could even get away with using just two.
