beauty

Get the ultimate multi-dimensional lashes perfect for lift, in triple thicknesses with extreme volume and curl with Kiss Triple Push-Up lashes, £7.99. They are tapered to give you a super full yet fluttery look combining three styles into one lash set, with a super structured lash band too. The lashes are proving popular already – Cardi B wore them herself to the 2018 Mat Gala! Buy them in Superdrug stores nationwide or online at superdrug.com

I also took a trip to search out a new foundation. Souring the beauty counters of Debenhams and John Lewis to find a matte or semi-matte finish and a shade that doesn’t take fair skin to orange tinged levels as it really doesn’t look good on most let alone a ginger! I finally found a really helpful counter assistant who took her time to really match my skin, and introduced me to Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Liquid Foundation, £35. The coverage is seamless and can be built up depending on your preferred coverage. I really love the fact that I can wear this lighter as well as full coverage – taking my look from day-to-night without changing product. (Plus you don’t need a primer either!)

Devoted to your liner? We try this for Spring!

Day in day out we wear liner, generally black, and we hope to get a good baby flick at the end… if this happens… Hooray!!! I’m sure like all of you – it doesn’t always happen that simply! 

Now we usually don’t stray from black liner but we were really intrigued by Rouge Bunny Rouge and their Devotion Ink Quartz Eyeliner in ‘Tanzanite Essence’. This is a gorgeous bluey lavender shade alike the gemstone – Google it! Its rarer than a diamond and we’re obsessed!

This liner is metallic and has a shimmer – just like you’d get with a stone! The application is ever so easy with a sponge tipped wand and it glides straight on with no need for extra lining for colour depth! We’d love it to be waterproof, that’s our only wish for this – and for it to be available as an eyeshadow too! 

It’s going to be out big wear for the spring. Pastel perfect and subtle (sort  of) but perfect for day to day wear, meaning you can transform your day makeup to a nice evening smoky look maybe by creating an ombre liner (Tanzanite to black) into a blue smoked eye! *WHY DID’NT I THINK OF THIS BEFORE*

The ugly beauty of Halloween!

Once a year, we get the chance to play in the dreamiest of beauty products to get us to the ugliest pretty we can be in preparation for One, yes just one night! The big fright night, Halloween!

Beauty can be as diverse as that luscious lip look, and amazingly showstopping eye looks. That we all dream to be, with the perfect brow and look for you. Yet it can create stunningly ugly beauty looks, that of Halloween, of vampires, skulls, animals and ‘dead’ people. Here we have found the perfect palette from SEVENTEEN Easy on the Eye Palette in the Big Smoke, £7.99.
Full of perfect purples for subtle to striking shading, and deep blues plus marvellous metallic eyeshadow creams which provide a primer and a blending base as well as a shadow colour to form new and exciting looks, this is provides the diversity for a trick or treat look.

Here we have used this palette and NYX The Curve liner in Jet Black, £12 to put together two completely different looks for fright night! (Please excuse the skull (image on Social media channels) look it started out fantastically and then I got tired 😂 so didn’t end up so well!) 


The ‘Treat’ look consists of the lighter purple blended into the entire eye and into the crease, delicately and softly. The light natural shade across the brow line, then using the deeper sparkly purple shade top left I added a smoke on the outer eye and into the edge of the crease. Then layered on top from the inner eye and across the lid I blended the silver eyeshadow cream across, bright and pigmented in metallic sheen so much more than I expected, I then reblended the dark purple on the outer crease into the wing, the silver creating a deeper denser purple pigment with spectacular sheen. I then lined from the centre of the eye out into a small win from the top and bottom lid. The curve liner being dark and densely charcoal and perfect for any Halloween look.

The Trick look (not the best is it 😂 however this gave us the perfect playtime to test the depth, blendability and pigment strengths of the

SEVENTEEN Easy on the Eye Palette in the Big Smoke, £7.99. Finding that the light purple is the perfect shadow play from the palettes with the three other purple shades being perfect to add depth and shadow to any look you try.
