My Picture Board

Hey peaches, I share with you my picture board of looks I have created just for fun.  Its nice to look back. Let me share a little about how I come up with looks.  A few ways I sometimes takes out my colours and think about what would work well, I sometime think about colour I have never used before and come up with a look around that, sometimes its situations like not wanting to wear too much, work, school etc then there is how to makes bright colours work.  Most often I can think of colours I would like to work or colours I have not used before with and go from there.

I hope you enjoy this intermission

Spring In Turquoise

Hey loves, I share with my first Spring look, simple pop of colour and this colour goes well with brown eyes and blue eyes, blues especially it makes your eye colour POP! in saying that you can wear what you like and how you like it. I loved this look, its simple and easy and a way to have colour without really spending too much time on it and off course you can use whatever colour you like.  Personally I have seen this kind of colour on Instagram a lot, so I thought I would put my spin on it and share it with you all.

Hope you like

Favourite Lip glosses

Hey beauties, an updated lip gloss favourite video. Before I got into lipstick I was an all the way there with lip gloss girl.  These are colours that I not only love wearing but have repurchased a lot of these colours.  As long as these companies sell these colours I will continue to buy them and will add more to my collection.  MAC has just been consistent for me at least, I have not 1 non dud colour by them or a colour that I really didn't like and didn't expect it to look like that.  The MAC glosses do settle a little into the lip lines but nothing to serious, I love that they are long wearing more on a sticky side which is what I prefer even though after a few wears I must exfoliate my lip!

While hands down is the Chanel Extrait De Gloss which feels like a jelly, wears so well, lasts long, has great colour pay off, doesn't settle in the lip lines and no need to exfoliate after use, thus justifying its hefty price tag.

I simply love gloss, to use them alone and along with a lipstick which is great a two in one products I love!

Hope you enjoy.

Until next time

Light In Purple

Hey Beauties, I am sorry I was away... I was in hospital unwell but I am better and back home recovering.  Here is my first Spring look, forgive the lack of Spring looks its not so Spring like in UK, in fact Spring has gone missing but I made this video because  was so inspired by the looks I see so much on Instagram.  I hoe you like this look, I loved it, just gives you some colour without looking like a clown and its really all about application and how you blend in order to make something like this work.  Ordinarily colours like this don't go but with placement and blending it all looks rather lovely.

See you all soon

March Favourites

Hey beauties, March favourites, wow how time flies, I hope you all had a great month of March and fab beginning of April.  These are my favourites, I really didn't wear too much make up to be honest.  That's what I love about make up, you can love doing full face makeup or you can cool it and put little and still look put together, which was me through out the month of March.

Please note that my collection of high end makeup took a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnng time to get what I have.  All products where not bought in one go, or I'd be broke! :)
I wanted to buy more expensive products because I wanted to see the difference between cheaper brands, and it really just depends what you buying.  

There are some products better bought more expensive while others not so much... the difference can be little but distinct e.g. a cheaper lipstick while its good for your pocket the colour range may not be wide enough, the lasting power poorer, the creaminess, texture, etc They are certain things that I would buy cheaper like Mascara, lip balms, certain foundations and powders.

Hope you enjoy
until next time loves
