Look : Toasted Marshmallow (Pinks & Browns)

If the name makes you hungry then I apologise in advance, the name is a mixture of the eye shadow names and the colours. I also used BB Cream for the first time in this look so I will do a full review about that later on. The look is mostly pinks with some browns, subtle enough for say and just use a brighter pink and smoke the browns out for a night time look.

Beautiful Blues

As I had my friends wedding reception to attend on Saturday night I needed to work on a blue look to match my dress. Now blue for me must be the hardest colour to do as it never seems to go right but I’m hopeing to conquer this and find a nice blue look which will encourage others to try colours they have never got to work for them before.

Summer Ombre Look

If you haven’t seen the Ombre trend lately heres a look at it as a make up look. I’ve seen it mostly on nails this summer but I thought a look like this couldn’t hurt especially with the make up trio I was using which I will get to later. Ombre is french for shadow / shade / shaded, in the fashion world it basically means anything stating out as one colour and morphing into another. Ombre has been everywhere so far, we’ve had hair, clothes, nails so why not Ombre eye shadow?

Hunters Eyes – (Daytime Green)

A new look for you guys using a few new things that I received in my E.L.F. Cosmetics order this week, as well as some of my favourites. I wanted to do a look that was quite dramatic but could be used in the day too and in all honesty I am really happy with how it turned out… Greens look lovely when you have brown eyes. This can easily be done for a night time look as well just darken it into a smokey eye look with a bit more black and intensify the colour to make it pop out.  This what I used:

Rainbow Eyes – Sensationelle Flicktips ( Lux Box )

Thought I would do something bright as I haven’t for a while now and when I go bright, I go Bright!. So I broke out the pinks, purples and blues and I loved the results especially with the Sensationelle Flicktips. I love these Flicktips they really are awesome, so easy to use, loads of designs and quick for the mornings you don’t have much time. I also added bubblegum coloured lips just for a kick.

Smokey eyes are perfect for a date night or even a night out with the girls, its also a look that can be used with many different colours and easily updated. I went for greens and browns this time no blacks were needed and I only used basically one palette. I also added the lashes from my She Said Beauty Box will have to review.

Snow White & The Huntsman Palette : Look & Review

I had been waiting to see Snow White & The Huntsman for months when I came across this exclusive Palette by Diego Dalla Palma. I originally saw it advertised by She Said Beauty in a give away which I entered so I could have ended up with two.  The palette has 6 neutral shades, 3 sparkle and 3 matt, eyeliner and lipstick. I will swatch this later so you can see the colours on their own. I have never used Diego Dalla Palma make up before but I am impressed.

 Here was what I used and my overall look:

Eye liner: Dark Knight

Mac Mascara x – Black

Boots 17 Photo Flawless Mascara – Black,Gold

 

 Lips

Mac Lip Liner – Cherry

Diego Dalla Palma – Snow White & The Huntsman Palette : Lipstick – Wicked Queen

 

I loved using this palette, the colours were so soft and bendable. The eye liner was soft and could hold a line as well as work with a smudged smokey eye look and as for the lipstick this is a beautiful colour red which I will happily add to my collection, creamy and has staying power.

Enjoy x

FOTD Summer Pinks

Today’s FOTD was inspired by yesterdays pink lips, I wanted more colour today as summer is on its way even though sometimes we can tell by the weather we receive. On my way home from work yesterday the sun was shining and a neighbour of ours had these gorgeous pink flowers that where just a few shades pinker than my lipstick. They looked and smelled gorgeous so I thought today would be a pink look for a change.
