Look : Power Purple

Purple is a great colour for both night and day so I decided to go with this look tonight as I’m hoping a meal out with Mr.Retro (& Master Retro) is on the cards. If you want to wear this in the day just leave the Charcoal colour until your ready to go out.

Me Me Me Cosmetics : Flawless Finish Tinted Moisturiser SPF15 Review

With summer here there is nothing worse that cakeing on your make up and feeling hotter than ever as your make up is too heavy. Even though the sun is shining you still want coverage and if its not to much to ask SPF15 included. BB Creams are a huge hit at the moment  but one of my favourite products of summer has been Me Me Me Flawless Finish Tinted Moisturiser SPF15, this has been my go to product now for the last couple of weeks as its convenient, provides the cover I need and is a light enough formula for summer weather.

It’s a light tinted moisturiser that comes in 4 different shades, I personally use Porcelain Pure which is the lightest shade. The formula has light reflective pigments and microspheres which deliver a flawless finish as well as a soft focus effect on your skin. The jojoba oil gives your skin the moisture it needs while the SPF15 provides you with essential UV protection. The result is a natural dewy complexion and their personal tip is to apply along the t-zone or oil prone areas to control shine. An inexpensive item at £9.99 and currently on offer on their website for £7.49. A great item that I really do recommend.

Naturally Naked – Urban Decay Naked Palette

In this sunny weather were experiencing its always nice to have a day with a nice subtle look that doesn’t take long to do but gives you that brighter look. I decided to use Urban Decay’s Naked Palette as it has the perfect colours to create a natural look.

Date Night – MUA Dusk til Dawn Palette

Continuing with my love of the MUA Palettes I used my Dusk Til Dawn Palette to create a look for a night out with my other half. The plan was the cinema to see The Dark Knight Rises but it was sold out, so we had a lovely tapas meal at La Tasca and this palette had the perfect colour to match me dress.  The result of Smokey Teal Look and what I used to create it :

Me Me Me Cosmetics : Dew Pots Swatches

High performance ultra long-stay rich colour eye defining cream, perfect for using as a primer to get a richer colour or can be used alone. 11 shades to choose from and here are a few of them. They were quite hard to swatch as they had dried out as the store had removed the lids permanently (stupid I know). I’ll get the rest at another time.
