Hey there my lovelies, hope you had a great weekend. I went for a summery look today with bronze, copper and gold eyeshadows, paired with coral lips and the result came out something that would go great on blue eyes or even green ones. Because the complimentary colour for blue is orange, coppers and golds look fantastic on blue eyes and accentuates them.

I would assume that you are sick of seeing these everywhere by now (like I am), but one more review in your update list won't do you any harm now will it?
I've been wanting these ever since I first saw them featured on Temptalia.com, they looked so gorgeous and unique in formulation, just what I was missing in my ever so growing makeup collection.
First, these are bloody hard to find in stores, Boots for example always have circa four shades on stands,which for us ladies let's face it, is not enough. I for one want the entire collection right there at my reach, so I can swatch and mix and match whichever way I want. So needless to say I am not impressed to start with.
There's no secret that I treasure my Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail polish collection above all, and I find myself reaching for them all the time. I love staring at my box of nail polishes looking for one shade in particular, and just to end up using a completely different shade to the one I initially had in mind. Decisions, decisions....
So what's better than one shade of nail polish? Five shades of nail polish, that's what! See some more swatches & more shades, here and here .

Sorry for screaming folks, don't mock me for using 'OMG', I literally got this lippie a few hours ago and I had to post about it this evening, it's like I won the lottery (it's the small things in life, kids!). If you read my blog for some time now, you already know that I'm a nutter for bright lipsticks and I hereby give you the most fabulous shade of lippie ever....brand to be disclosed at the end of the post :))).

Why hello there everybody :). Apologies for the M.I.A. (Missing in Action) status of my blog lately, I've been quite busy in the past few weeks.
First things first, I have a new haircut & colour, I currently have some gorgeous shades of caramel, soft brown with red undertones going on, which I absolutely love! All this was achieved with a little help from a fab stylist (i.e. she did everything while I patiently waited for the finished result), Lucy. You can check out her Facebook page here , especially if you're looking for a colour change, she's a colour wizard, plus she'll travel to your house so that you can have your new hairdo in the comfort of your home.

Wow indeed, that is a long name for sure :). If you haven't heard of this foundation yet, then you're basically....a man, for this foundation has been featured everywhere lately and it's only the beginning I reckon. Only introduced on the market on the 31st March, this foundation from Benefit promises a lot, but does it actually deliver?

Hey guys, how are you keeping?
I was having a play with my make-up this evening and I ended up doing a Marilyn Monroe inspired look, and here's what I came up with. This was inpired by the fantastic Lisa Eldridge's Marilyn Iconic Look, a tutorial you can watch here.
