Oxblood Lips with a Soft Cut Crease Eye–a makeup tutorial

oxblood dark red lips neutral eye makeup tuutorial

Today’s video tutorial is the look I was wearing in the Rusk Miracurl. As I mention in the video below I love dark lips and for us in the southern hemisphere its the perfect time to experiment with them. I paired the Oxblood lips with a soft cut crease eye in neutral browns to define the eye area trying not to take too much focus off the lips.

Brown Smoky Eye with a Pop of Colour for Fashion Addict–product’s and pictures

 

Back with a  wearable makeup look tutorial for an easy brown smoky eye with a pop of colour using some products that were sent to me from Fashion Addict and some others I already had. Before I post the video I thought I’d list what I used. As usual you don’t need to have all of these products to create the look but its good to be able to compare shades. The look is fairly budget friendly too which is always a bonus in my opinion!brown smokey eye fashion addict product photos (more…)

Soft Smoky Eye a Tutorial

Back with another pictorial, (kind of really loving these lately). But this time its for a soft smoky eye (or smokey?) . Products will be listed under the pictorial. One thing I forgot to add below was that if you want your eye’s to ‘wing up’ kind of like a cat eye don’t slope the eyeshadow in the crease like I have, ‘pull’ it up towards you temple instead.

So lets get started on the Smoky Eye, shall weSoft smoky eye smokey

Fun Double Buns with Scunci Pin Twirls

I recently jumped at the chance to participate in the 2012 Scunci Blogger Contest, besides it sounding like a bit of fun I was intrigued by the Pin Twirls we were asked to use in our hairstyles. When I first opened the box, I’ll be honest, I kind of thought ‘they look like some sort of mini torture device, how are these going to work?’.

They are odd hair pins, but after using them I’ve found them to be great at keeping my hair done! Ill you do is twist them into the middle of your hairstyle, kind of like a screw actually. I easily came up with a few quick and simple styles, (I decided to separate the posts because these pictures could end up a mile long!)

I’m so glad I got the chance to try these because they aren’t something I would have immediately rushed out to buy myself but now that I’ve used them I really like them!

Get Happy with Physicians Formula

physicians formula productsA couple of weeks ago I tweeted an instagram picture of a couple of fun new products I got sent to try out from Physician Formula. The products included:

the new Happy Booster powders in Translucent, Bronzer and the blush in Rose- these powders all have a soft satiny finish to them which I like and have a light floral scent. Cute packaging, (i just love the hearts) with a mirror and brush and are very wearable. Oh and they claim to be mood boosting, now I’m not saying that these products don’t make me happy because theypowder totally do. I actually love the products and have been wearing them on a regular basis but its more from the colours and hearts than some ‘endorphin mimicking formula’ so as far as mood boosting goes its no morning dose of Zoloft put it that way.

Organic Wear mascara in Ultra Black Organics – is yes you guessed it has 100% naturally derived ingredients. It also has a massive brush my favourite kind. Oh and its all 100% recyclable which is nice.

and the Eye Booster 2 in 1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum in Ultra Black this is a great liquid pen style liner. I can’t really comment as to whether it has a lash growing effect as I haven’t been wearing it daily but as a liner is very easy to use and very black!

To show you all how wearable they are I thought I’d try out a look only using these products (except the powder on my brows , leftover white pencil on my waterline, clear lip gloss and foundation).face4

I used the Translucent powder all over my face, Contoured slightly with the Bronzer including my eyes, I then used some of the Translucent powder on my lids (its not completely translucent, it gives the skin a bit of a glow)> Next up was winged liner and Mascara. I finished off my look with a bit of the blush on my cheeks and on my lips mixed with a bit of gloss. side face
