So After my post on the Nude lipsticks which I did on Wednesday it made me realise I need to be more adventurous. I personally don’t think it suit me but I think it’s just because I’m used to Nudes.

So moving onto my other exciting news. Well a few things.

Firstly – I bought my first Lime Crime Lipsticks

Secondly – I’m doing the valentines Box Swap hosted by Lucie from Fatbeautyx and Samantha From Mascara And Cakes so I received the email today with the name of my Beauty Valentine and bought her some lovely things.

Last but definitely not least I bought myself another camera to help me get better pictures for my blog and for trips out. So a Friend from School was selling the Canon 450D for £200 with lots of goodies with it so I was straight on it. So I picked it up this morning and I am so so happy snapping away in my room getting used to the camera.

I am so so excited to get used to using my new camera and taking lots of new pictures with this baby for my blog. If anyone has any tips or can help me anyway with this badboy then please let me know! 

Thanks so much for reading this little post tonight. 

Love.

FOTD #2

Hello Hello Hello! 

So this evenings post is a FOTD. I love these posts so I hope you enjoy this one. 🙂 

Also Exciting News! Well for me.. I’ve finally finished my 15 shadow Palette from MAC. So so happy with it. This is what I’ve used to create this natural look.

So with my make-up look today I used my usual make-up. Products used below; 

MAC Pro longwear in NW20

MAC Studio Fix Powder in NW20

Crown Brush Concealer Palette 

 Bourjois Paris Delice De Poudre Bronzing powder

Sleek Contour Palette in Light – highlighter used

MAC Eyebrow Duo in brunette

Anastasia beverley Hills Brow Wiz in Brunette

MAC Eyeshadows in Wedge and Honesty

Lancome Hypnose Mascara

Image

So Above is my baby! My little baby and my pride and joy. 🙂 In depth post with swatches will follow. 🙂 

Wedge‘ is such an amazing shadow to use as your transition colour or Crease colour. in this instance I used ‘wedge‘ in the crease with ‘honesty‘ all over the lid.

Wedge‘ is a light brown matte shade slightly darker than my skin tone. ‘Honesty‘ is a sheer brown glitter shadow that is nice to apply onto the lid to add a bit of something to my eyes. 

Image

My eyebrows are wonky. I swear this is not natural!! 😉 The Eye shadow shows up more now on my eyes rather than the first picture so you get more of an idea with this shot. 

I love the MAC brow Duo for my eyebrows using the darker shade on the end of my brows. Then as I get to the inside of my brow i used the lighter shade to fill in as my eyebrows are sparse in this area. I then used my Anastasia Beverley Hills brow wiz pencil in brunette to just tie everything off and touch up. 

I then added my Sleek Contour palette in Light using the highlighter to highlight the tops of my cheekbones, nose and cupids bow. 

Then just applying the Studio fix powder on my T Zone just to set any concealer and foundation.

 

I hope you enjoyed having a good nosy at this FOTD post. Let me know in the comments if you have done a FOTD post recently. 

love.

FOTD : #1

Hello Hello Hello! 

So today is the beginning of what will be a weekly post called ‘Face of the day’ Now FOTD and OOTD are constantly floating around the Beauty Blogosphere. So why can’t add my little 2 cents in as well hey? ;]

Well Today I decided to use my Sigma warm Neutrals palette for the second time. I take a lot of inspiration from Jaclyn Hill and anyone who hasn’t heard of her well check her out HERE!! Now she’s a fan of Warm Neutral tones and I love the looks that she creates. When I got my hands on this palette as a present for Christmas I was so excited to try it out.

Image

I went for a Simple look using only 2 shadows and 2 Sigma Brushes. The shades I went for are both Matte. ‘Cinnamon‘ which is a warm toned clay colour and ‘Sugar Milk‘ which is a creamy beige colour. The brushes I used was the Sigma Tapered Blending Brush – E40 and the Sigma Large Shader Brush – E60.

Image

I used the Sigma Tapered Blending Brush to apply the shadow ‘Cinnamon‘ in my crease as a contour. I blended right up to my eybrow just leaving enough space to highlight my brow bone. 

I then took the Large Shading brush and applied ‘Sugar Milk‘ to inner corner of my eye and along the lid. 

I then took the Blending brush again and blended the 2 Shades together. 

I then used ‘ Sugar Milk‘ again on my Large Shader Brush to apply to my brow bone to add a subtle highlight.

Image

I absolutely love this look! I think its so wearable on a day to day basis and any of the colours in the ‘Sigma Warm Neutrals Palette’ will be able to create this look.

Image

I then added my usual foundation which is the MAC Pro Longwear and my bronzer which is the Boujois Paris Delice De Poudre bronzing Powder. I used my MAC Brow duo in Brunette taking the lighter shade to fill in my brows. 

I applied quite a lot of mascara to make my eyes pop so I used the Lancome Hypnose Mascara and the Avon Mega Effects Mascara.

Thanks so much for reading this post & I hope you enjoy this. Let me know below in the comments if you’ve tried any other looks using the ‘Sigma Warm Neutrals Palette’. Or even any FOTD.
