Tutorial - Hitting the Town

Hey Girls,
 So today i decided to do a tutorial which i feel would be perfect for this coming Winter when your out and about greeting friends and family, or prehaps you could tone it down and wear it to work too!

To begin we're going to Prime our eyes in order to, not only make sure the makeup stays on all day but also the Primer brings out the pigmentations in the eyeshadows used.

Urban Decay has the best Primer so make sure you pick one up!

Next, take a white based eyeshadow, this will guarentee the bold colours put on afterwards 
stand out a lot more - to do this I used Urban Decay "Sellout" which I used all over the base and underneath the bottom waterline

Next you take the darkest shade, which here is "Mushroom" by Urban Decay and "AC/DC" again by Urban Decay, in order to blend you began outwards placing the darkest colour and building it along the lash line, then you take the second darkest shade and use this in your crease and  blend the two colours together.

Make sure you dont go all the way to the edge as we still want "Sellout" to be visible to give the fade out effect on the eye lash.

Following on, take a dark black pencil and draw along the lash line ending in a winged effect, this will extend your eye and give the illusion that they are bigger!!

Apply a generous amount of your favourite mascara and use any remaining eyeshadow on your  rush to sweep under the bottom water line to continue the glitter/shimmery Winter effect.

Hope you guys like it!! xoxo

Mineralize Mac SkinFinish - 'Sunny By Nature'

Hey girls,

As you may have just read i visited an Outlet Mall whilst on my Holidays this year, and whilst there i found a bargain Cosmetics store which have reduced prices for a number of Branded cosmetics.

Next on my list to try was a Mac Mineralize Skinfinish which i was intending to use to keep my summer glow! I would 100% reccommend this product! It contains little pieces of glitter inside and instead of having one complete matte colouring it contains a number of different bronzing shades and golden shades to make it look natural when putting it on your skin.

There were a number of different colours to choose from, whether you wanted to use it as a blusher, bronzer or prehaps just a finishing powder. I believe the pricing for this item was around $20 opposed to around £25 in the UK.

Hope you've all had an amazing summer!! xoxo

Clinque Superbalance Foundation

Hey girls,

Sorry its been a while! I've just recently got back from my holidays, i visited the US of A and i must admit it is defoo somewhere i would recommend!! It's gorgeous and lovely and HOT :)

So, whlst there i saw a Cosmetic Store which is situated in Outlet stores across America who take the products which have not been sold in regular branded shops, for example Boots, and they take the spare stock and sell it at cheaper rates.

This is when i decided to spend a bit of my holiday money! For starters i needed a new foundation, i had been using Estee Lauder Double wear but felt it was a bit too 'Cakey' for the summer and decided to get a ligther foundation - my friend had suggested 'Clinque Superbalance' so i decided to try it for the small price of only $14.60 which came out to about £10 opposed to £20 if bought over here!!! REAL BARGAIN

I've worn this product once or twice and although it definetly is a lighter cover, i cant help but feel that it does not always give you the complete FULL coverage and concealer is needed to hide any deep red pigmentation on the skin.

If you dont tend to break out and want a lighter covering though i would DEFO recommend this product for those who are looking for a new foundation!!

What kind of foundation would you guys reccommend for a MIDDLE grounded coverage for Autumn?

Urban Decay Vol II...Tutorial?

Hey girls,

I was just wondering if you would like me to take pictures of some of the eye makeup you could do by using the Urban Decay boxset? Here is a teaser...let me know if you would want anymore and i'll ask my model to assist (my little sister lol) xoxo


Hey girls,

I was lucky enough to get the chance to see the Lovely boys - The Wanted!! They sang 4 songs including there NUMBER 1 'All Time Low'

It is an experience i will never forget...the crowd were so lively and the boys are just sooo GORGEOUS! Afterwards my friends and I had the opportunity to head over to HMV and even get our CDs signed!! Upclose and personal style.. ;-) I just Love each and everyone of them and was crazily excited when i found out they had Hit the No.1 Spot...

I'm getting to the stage where im beginning to feel like a stalker lol:
  • Twitter follower
  • Joining there Facebook
  • Watching there Youtube (WantedWednesday woo!)...and not forgetting
  • Playing there songs Over and Over and Over...

I Really hope they make a name for themselves...if not in Music Maybe as an Abercrombie Boy ;-)

What do you guys think to there music? Keepers...Tom is for Defo!! hehehe xoxo

Destroyed Shorts...

Hiya girls,


I know I know, Summer is nearly ending and with this English weather who needs a pair of shorts...Right? Wrong!! I have been searching endlessly for a "Destroyed" pair of shorts and Finally!! I went into my local Vera Moda and found this Gorgeous pair! They are Super comfortable and Exactly what i have been after...

The only fault is id have liked them a bit more Damaged ;-)
Do you still think this style of shorts are 'In' if not, what style have YOU purchased? xoxo

Urban Decay Vol II

Hiya girls

I recieved this item during Christmas '09, but unfortunetly have not had the time to experiment with it as much as i wanted to...until this Summer.

I am absolutly in LOVE with this item, the colours are the perfect combination for your typical smoky eye and comes with:
  1. Mini Eye Primer
  2. Black Eyeliner
  3. Brown Eyeliner
  4. 16 Pigmented Eyeshadows

Which again, i am in love with, the only problem i find is that once a tiny bit has broken off they do start to become very delicate (as you can see) but no biggy as the colours are gorgeous and VERY well pigmented.
I would DEFO recommend this for a stocking filler this Christmas or prehaps a Cheeky Treat for yourself!

Who else has purchased this item? I LOVE it xoxo
Oops you can see the smashed Blue, "Jinx"

Collection 2000

Hey girls,

I recently went into my nearest Drugstore in hope to pick up a new, fast drying nail varnish! Seeing as summer is coming to a close i wanted to get something a bit different to your typical pastel colours as Autumn is fast approaching.

Whilst browsing the lot to try and see the most affordable, yet at the same time had the fastest drying rate... as im quite impatient. I came across "Collection 2000" which i know my older sister raves about!

Thats when i saw it...this beautiful deep sky blue, which i can only describe as a couple of shades darker then a pastel colour which was PERFECT for what i was after! It not only looks nice for the upcoming months.. but it drys in a Flash! The colour is in BMX Rebellious!

I will DEFO be purchasing more "Collection 2000" in the near future...
What do you guys think? xoxo

Black XS Paco Rabanne

Hi girls

This is my first post and thought that I would start with a review of my new perfume.

I purchased this last week and loved it as soon as I got it! It has a sweet smell but still quite strong and would suit those who dont think they are girly enough enough for Britney Spears! i

It lasts all day and therefore can be worn as either as a day time perfume or on a night on the town...
The bottle is quite rock chick with a feminine tone with the embossed flower on the front of the bottle; complimenting this is the font 'Black XS' which is in the style of rose thorns. Gorgeous!

Like it? I know i do.. xoxo
