Pop of Colour

For a colour-phobe like me, florescent eyeshadows and glitter eyeliners are not my cup of tea BUT I've recently been adding a touch a colour in to my daily makeup and I have to say, I'm really enjoying it!

Here's two of my looks from this week:

BLUE EYESHADOW with pink lips:

Yes it's true, I used a bright blue eyeshadow from the Seventeen Midnight Jewel Heist Palette. I simply followed the line of my black eyeliner and created a second flick, to add a comfortable pop of colour. 
I went all out and chose an electric pink lip, using the Rimmel Colour Rush Balm, in the shade I Want Candy.

Big Lips NO Injections - FULLIPS REVIEW

If you haven't seen or heard about Kylie Jenners lips recently then where have you been???!

The trend for big lips has truly blown up over the past few years, not only with lip injections on the rise but there has also been a huge surge in lip-liner products being made and sold, and countless blogger tutorials on this subject.

I'm personally not overly-concerned about the size of my lips - they aren't extremely thin but they aren't big either. I do over-line them every so often to create a slightly fuller effect when I'm wearing lipstick but I try my best to make this look natural. Sometimes I find it tricky and time consuming, so I was searching Google for alternative lip enhancers, when I came across FULLIPS.

Sexy Vs Sweet Valentine's Makeup

Valentines Day Makeup Looks

Whether you're having a romantic dinner with your loved one or an anti-valentines night out with the girls, either way I have two very different makeup looks for February 14th. They both have the exact same face and eye makeup but the different lip colours create two very different looks. 
All makeup used is listed at the bottom of this post :)

Makeup Brush Series - BASE

I don't know about you but I've found buying makeup brushes rather frustrating and some what confusing at times (not to mention the disappointments ...oh and expense!). I've wasted quite a bit of my well earned cash on this area over the years and I still maintain the fact that brushes aren't always essential, however, there are a few that have stood out from the crowd and these are the guys that have come up trumps when I'm applying my base makeup:
