All fired up!

Another face of the day for you, this time from Thursday. No special occasion, just work but I've been wanting to do a red based look for a while.

Revlon Photo ready foundation, NYC face powder, Mac blush in Peaches

Urban decay primer potion
Sleek Sunset palette
Mac embark (eyebrows)
Collection 2000 fast stroke liner
Cover Girl lash blast length.

The more I blended this look, the most flame like it appeared. I really should make more use of this palette, the colours are really unusual and beautiful.

Every day face

I start work at 8 most days so I normally only give myself 10-15 mins to do my hair and make up. This doesn't leave much time for experimenting with looks.
I went to lunch with my mum the other weekend and I spent a little longer on my everyday make up. Here's the make up I used.
Face- Bourjois healthy mix foundation, Rimmel stay matte powder, Nars orgasm blush.
Eyes- ud primer potion, Mac paint pot in soft ochre, mac eyeshadow in vanilla(highlight) wood winked(crease) embark(eyebrows), Collection 2000 fast stroke liquid liner, cover girl lash blast length
Lips- collection 2000 cream puff in Fairy cake.

Normally I just use the same face products and a slick of liquid liner but it was nice to do this "properly"
I also had my hair cut, can you tell? My lovely friend Kirsty cut off the really long side and just evened it out, leaving it in a long bob that I can grow out. Hurrah!

Neutral glitter notd

I know the two words don't normally go hand in hand but pale pink glitter is probably going to be the most neutral colour you can get in glitter form!
My good friend Kirsty got me some nail polish from New York including this treat from Milani.

Disco lights is a really pretty glitter. As it's not too dissimilar to my skin tone, it doesn't feel as in your face as other glitters. It took 3 coats to achieve this. I'm definitely more into different colours and textures in the same mani at the moment so I added some metallic silver (no7 sunshine) to break up the look.

The only girl in the world

I went to see Rihanna on Tuesday and wanted to make an extra special effort with my make up as hers is always gorgeous.

I recently saw this tutorial and look on Fancy face and really wanted to try it out.

Sorry, still taking photos on my iPhone so the quality isn't amazing but I was quite pleased with this. The white base needed to be blended more before adding white shadow on the top but it was 6am and I wasn't too fussed. It's the first time I've used Mac liquid last in Aqualine for ages. It's a stunning colour.
Here's what I used-
Mac soft ochre paint pot
Sleek circus palette
Mac chrome yellow
Mac chill
Mac Yogurt
Mac Romping
Mufe- 18
NYX jumbo pencil in Milk
Lashes are eBay.

Birthday nails

I'm going out to celebrate my birthday tomorrow, along with my good friend Kirsty and I offered to do her nails for her. I thought I'd show you the end result.

She wanted bright, clashing colours so I did a little nail art on each one using my dotting tools and konad.

What do you think?

Has re-instated my love of make up and inspired me to start blogging again.

I did my own make up for the evening, as the Black Swan and a zombie for my friend Jolene.

I watched a few tutorials but mainly just did this free hand, using pictures and footage of the scene, and reading interviews with the make up artists who created the look.





Jolene’s zombie mouth was created following Robyn’s zombie mouth tutorial.


I had so much fun creating these two looks that I realised that I can’t just give up on my blog.  I need to put 100% more effort in to it, I want it’s main focus to be on make up looks from now on (with the odd haul and NOTD.)

Unfortunately, I broke my camera at the party so it may be a few weeks before I can take decent pics again but I will try my best.
