Festive Glitter


When Christmas time comes around, everyone starts feeling festive! It’s time to break out the glitter and even though I don’t celebrate Christmas, I enjoy glitter! The easiest way to incorporate it into your makeup, is by using eye liner! Take a look at some of my favourite picks:

20131217-154054.jpg

I’ve tried to include as many different colours as I can! These shades are definitely my favourite and ones that I use all of the time!

20131217-154241.jpg
* Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in ‘Denim Diva’
This isn’t even meant to be an eyeliner but I love drawing a line on my lash line and blending it out! It’s a beautiful cold blue colour with a lighter blue glitter running through it. It has amazing longevity and looks amazing with any eye colour.. It’s a super festive colour, too!

20131217-154248.jpg
* KIKO Super Colour Eyeliner in ‘110’
I go on about these eyeliners a lot but I truly love them! This shade is a beautiful purple colour with glitter running through it! I love using these on my too lash line and also smudging them under my eye too! It’s a gorgeous deep purple and is really long lasting.. As the name suggests!

20131217-154255.jpg
* KIKO Super Colour Eyeliner in ‘102’
For the same reasons above, I love this eyeliner too! Because it’s a liquid, you can get real precision and the brush is immaculate for drawing on the eyes! This brown is a gorgeous rich brown and perfect for those people who want to try something other than black! It has a gold glitter running through it and often looks like a copper colour in some lights.

20131217-154302.jpg
*AVON Supershock Gel Eyeliner in ‘Blackberry’
I’ve loved this colour for years and I can never get ahold of another pencil in this shade so sparingly use this one! This is a fantastic deep burgundy with a red glitter running through it and although the colour initially sounds scary, it looks amazing! This is another one for those of us who are used to black eyeliner.. It makes a gorgeous change to wearing black because of its subtlety! It’s really long lasting and creamy, too!

20131217-154309.jpg
* Barry M Kohl Pencil in ’10’
I bought these recently and have already got so much use of them! This gold colour is definitely one of my favourite! One that would look great on darker skin tones but suits anyone! These are creamy and long lasting and add a gorgeous pop of colour without looking too OTT! I love applying a black eyeliner and then this on top, on my waterline which gives me eyes definition and a pop of colour at the same time!

20131217-154317.jpg
* KIKO Perfect Eyes Duo Highlighter Pencil
This pencil is actually meant to be used on the brow bone one as a highlighter pencil but I love using this on my inner corner, cheekbones and even on my eyelid as an all over colour! This trick is great for those people who don’t wear eyeliner but still want a subtle shimmer! Just dab this on the areas of your eyes where you want some brightness and rock!

20131217-154323.jpg
* INIKA Certified Organic Eyeliner in Green Lagoon
It’s not often I whip out this colour because I’m not usually a fan of frosty colour but this green definitely gets my blood pumping in Winter! It’s a beautiful aqua shade which has a mega frosty finish! It’s not the smoothest pencil but after warming it up with a hair dryer or in my hands, it’s fairly easy to use and I love applying this with a black on my waterline or just above my black winged eyeliner for a pop of colour on my eyelid!

My Top: Autumn Nails


20131130-145440.jpg

So recently, I decided to do a winter time series where every day this week, I’ll show you my favourite beauty products of a certain category and today.. It’s nail varnishes!

I’m a HUGE fan of painting my nails and hands are a real big thing in my books..

Clean hands, clean body and soul.. That’s my moto (which I just made up now).

Keeping your nails clean, shaped well and looking natural is also fantastic but if you fancy a bit more colour, look no further than my favourite fall nail polish guide!

Top 5 summer pink lipsticks!


20130721-234537.jpg

Now that we’re in the middle of the summertime, it’s time to pull out our bright colours! Some people aren’t too confident in wearing bright clothing and they love a bright lip so here’s my favourite summertime pinks! Stay tuned in the next few days for my other favourite summer tones!

YSL Rouge Pure Shine Sheer Lipstick in 31 £21
A beautiful sheer hot pink colour that glosses wonderfully. Makes your lips look juicy and plumper

20130721-232240.jpg

20130721-232246.jpg

Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon £20
A matte deep pink colour that looks lovely on any skin tone. Fairly natural but makes lips look plumper and really immaculate

20130721-233538.jpg

20130721-233545.jpg

MAC Impassioned (amplified) £14
A vibrant coral pink with a satin finish. Like a less matte version of YSL lipstick. Really flattering bright pink colour.

20130721-233421.jpg

20130721-233431.jpg

Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie £7.99
A smooth and moisturising pink shade. Although not uber sticky, glitter glistens beautifully in sunlight and is a lovely muted pink without being garish.

20130721-233710.jpg

20130721-233716.jpg

Barry M in TMLP (turn my lips pink)
A melanin changing lip colour that adjusts differently on every person. It’s a moisturising pink colour that goes deeper as you do (when tanning etc) Lasts really well because it’s a stain.

BLOGGING DAY #6


The end of the day is here and it’s been lovely today! I really like blogging like this because when I look over it, it reminds me of the lovely things I did!

Little things people take for granted a lot! Today when I woke up and the sun was shining, I went straight into my garden and just sat in the sun for half an hour before enjoying an amazing breakfast!

20120909-222835.jpg

Watching the movie! I had Tania (my little qu’ran student), over watching it with me! We had a lot of fun watching the movie and playing games too! Look at some of the stuff we made with yarn!

20120909-223110.jpg

As well as that, I got to do some pampering too! I love pulling out my facial masks, creams and lotions and potions to treat myself at the end of the week! (No, I don’t use ALL of this stuff, LOL).
