I always love Rihanna’s choice in style. Its the fact that she doesn’t mind taking risks or trying new trends!

Mylah Morales used NARS Orgasm Illuminator on Rihanna at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards Salute To Icons party.

“It’s really important to me to make Rihanna look like she’s glowing, like she just stepped off the beach” said Mylah Morales of the makeup look she created.

Not many people may agree with me but I’m loving the dress!

Especially with the slightly matchy makeup which has almost forever been a no-no!

Is this the type of post you would like to see more often???

(as an added type of post to my other usuals)

Tip of the Day

After you apply fake tan wipe over your brows, ears and hair line with cotton balls so the product doesn’t build up. Do the same to your elbows, knees and feet.

Tip of the Day – Brushes and Sponges

Make sure you clean your brushes regularly. Even if it is only with a mild anti-bacterial soap, leave to dry laying down on a towel (never stand up).

If you apply your makeup with a sponge make sure you clean after every use. Sponges can carry bacteria so its a good idea to only use them a few  times then throw them out.

DIY : Palettes From Leopard Notebooks!

Ok I know I tweeted about this probably last week but I took the photo’s uploaded them, and well I deleted them. (or I can’t find them) So I just took some new ones of the project finished!!!

Here they are

100_8646

The main reason I wanted to do this was to de-palette some of my Estee compacts that I don’t seem to use because I don’t like quads. I also did the 10 pan blush palette and a few other’s I had lying around.

100_8647

This is the shadow palette. These are again Estee ones, a few pigments I pressed and some other random shadows I didn’t seem to use.

100_8648

How I made it

These notebooks I got for $2-3 a while ago and I only bought them because they are leopard. I never used them I just liked looking at them, (yes I’m aware I may have a slight problem).

So I took the paper out, saved it for notes.

Covered the inside with that plastic damask material I have so much of .

Then for the edges, I covered plain straws with the plastic and hot glue gunned them on. I added the pink ribbon to tie it closed.

Because I’m so impatient I didn’t attach the shadows/blushes with magnets but with blu-tack instead!

I literally made these with stuff lying around the house .

Hopefully I’ll use this stuff more often now!

(These are no way near air tight and will definitely not be holding cream shadows.

The Reason I chose the plastic  to cover it with is so I can wipe down and clean it, also so if I spray alcohol onto it it wont disintegrate)

Have you ever made your own palettes??

New Series! BASICS!!!

I thought it might be helpful to start a series on Basic Steps that I can refer to in other video’s. I have already started with Foundation and that video is live now.

I will focus on basic techniques, not only in makeup but hair as well!

Up coming posts/videos will be focusing on (but not limited to) Contouring, Highlighting and Blush, Eyebrows, Mascara, Liners and Lips.

With hair I will do a regular wet se, cheats set, Blow dry , and other quick tips to get a great hairstyle in a jiffy!

(I am also interested in requests for other ‘Basics’ you may be interested in)

Ok onto the First

FOUNDATION
