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.

Natural / Bridal Make Up – Kryolan, Vivo Cosmetics & MUA ( GlossyBox July )

Hiya All,

A nice simple elegant look today, perfect for a nice dinner out, simple bridal make up or something light to wear to work (skip the sparkle if you want). I love this light beautiful look I created because its very versatile and can be altered for any occasion. You’d be able to smoke it out for a night out, keep to the neutral colours with sparkle for a wedding or keep the neutral colours for the day. In no way does neutral mean boring.

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.
