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.

Olympic Team GB Inspired Look – MUA Dusk til Dawn Palette

I’m neither the most athletic or healthiest peraon you will meet so that counts me out for a medalist of any kind but of course I want to show support to our athelits that are out there giving it their all.

  • MAC Studio Fix Foundation – NC15
  • Vivo Baked Blush – Rouge Shimmer

MUA Mosaic Blusher – English Rose Review

I have never been a huge fan of blush but I do have my favourite go to products. In the summer I have never bothered much as I have never found a colour subtle enough but at the same time can still be seen. I saw this during my recent MUA haul and couldn’t resist, MUA is quickly becoming one of my favourite brands, not only are they great quality but they are also much cheaper than todays leading brands. This is definitely my latest must have from them.  The Mosaic Blusher in the shade English Rose is a beautiful shimmery blush that is the perfect colour for summer.

 

A must for everyone a quick swirl with the brush round this and you have the perfect colour. It will suit everyone if your pale or tanned. I’d be happy to wear this blush everyday and the shimmer is just right for summer evenings. Shockingly only £2.50!

Think I may stock up on this.

Date Night – MUA Dusk til Dawn Palette

Look: Down To Earth ( Green People, Flick Tips, Lux Box )

In my Lux Box this month I received an eco eye shadow trio from Green People, this little compact has three beautiful shades to create the perfect look. The shade I recieved in my box was Earth and I think this will create a lovely down to earth look, hence the name.
