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.


Review: L’Oreal Paris Miss Manga Mascara

Starting in my teens I like every other teenage girl grew and unhealthy obsession with mascara. Its almost a girls first makeup love and walking into a shop with a sales person handing out free samples or money of a brand new mascara was heaven. It was hard to say no to a mascara that did more than your last one and came at a discounted price. Whether they lived up to there claims or got put in a draw with the rest… nearly every girl is on the hunt for the perfect mascara. I have found many products over the years and will have to do a 5 best post for you but this is one I had to review as it quickly topped my list of daily essentials. I recieved this item as a bonus item in my latest in beauty box, as I explained mascara is one thing I cannot turn down. Already a huge fan of the L’Oréal Paris Superliner I was excited to try another eye product from the range.


The Miss Manga as you’ve probably guessed is the mascara to give you that anime / manga look. This means big eyes, volume to the top and the bottom lashes. The brush is designed with a 360 degree flex for easy application,  use zig zag movement to coat the top lashes using the brush like you would normally use a mascara wand, then use the cone shape top of the brush to coat the lower lashes to open up your eyes.


I love this mascara for several reasons but mainly because it is a great mascara. It’s perfect for daytime eyes if your running short on time, a coat of this and your ready to go looking much more awake. It’s great combined with eyeliner for a more intense or classic look and still only needs one coat. If you prefer more colour it also comes in turquoise and violet aswell as black. If your looking for a new mascara that doesn’t cost you over £10 this one will set you back just £8.99. MsRetro
