40 Questions Tag

I decided I do a tag that’s been making the rounds.

(I did a tutorial for the makeup in the video I just need to edit it!)

I missed a few questions. I do have freckles and no I don’t or ever have used Proactive, (I’ve heard to many horror stories plus my skins dry enough already).

Hair Tutorial- Oscars Inspired Messy Up-do / Bun for day or night

http://www.youtube.com/user/Madamebfatale

During the awards season I noticed a few messy up-do’s. This is my version of it.

This can easily be worn day or night and is best achieved with dirty hair, (as with most up-do’s). I would recommend  using a hairspray to finish, I just seem to be losing everything lately!

This style can be as neat or as messy as you would like and is a great hairstyle to try if you don’t have much time or need to wash your hair but want a ‘pulled together’ look.

If you don’t have hair extensions to add volume to your do you can easily use a rolled up stocking with the toe cut out and thread your ponytail through it. Or you can use a rat.

The makeup worn in this video is the Napoleon Perdis Walter Runway Inspired look.

The shine spray I used was by Evo that was sent to me, I do have to say its lovely. It smells like watermelon candy!

Benefit Smokin’ Eyes palette

They say,

"Benefit Smokin’ Eyes is a complete brow and eye kit to create a sexy, smoky professional look. Each kit contains eye bright, three eye shadows in pink, pewter and deep charcoal, liner, shaping wax, a fluff shadow / hard angle brush, tiny tweezers and an illustrated lesson."

 

image I say,

Retailing at $68(AUD) this nifty little palette contains not only all you need to create that smouldering smokey eye but is also versatile enough for many other looks. I was originally planning on creating a smokey eye with the palette, but then I realised that since it already contains instructions to in a cute booklet I might as well show you that it can be used for other looks too.

 
Both the eyebright and pencil liner can be used as base shadows or the original intended use as a highlight and liner. The shadows can be used all together to create a smokey eye or individually to create other looks. Having added the brow wax, ‘tweezies’ and dual ended applicator this is also a great idea if you are staying overnight somewhere or travelling. All else you would need would be a multi-purpose lip and cheek product, such a poise-tint, mascara and maybe a gloss or a balm.

 

Here is the tutorial I created with this palette, hope you like it!

Review -MOR Little Luxuries

 

Hey dolls,

Here is my review for MOR’s Little Luxuries range, the set I’m reviewing is the Lychee Flower scent.

 

(I didn’t leave the tin at my friends, I have no idea what I did with it 🙁 )

Sorry, been MIA yet again. It has been a busy week.

Sophia Loren Inspired with Benefit Smokin’ Eyes Palette

I really wanted to do a Sophia Loren look and I also wanted to show you that palettes can be used for other looks than intended.

I wish I could have gotten great picture of the look  but unfortunately I didn’t. This is a screen cap, hence the bad quality.

So here’s the video

Sorry that the lighting isn’t great!

The Benefit Palette was given to me for PR consideration, please don’t think this influences my opinion. As you can see the palette is versatile and you can use it for other purposes than just a Smokey eye, you can see from the tutorial!
The Primer was given to me by a fellow blogger for reviewing purposes and I won the Napoleon liner.

This is a tad on the dramatic side but you know me I can’t help it!

For more about the palette I wrote up a review here http://madamebfatale.blogspot.com/2010/03/benefit-smokin-eyes-palette.html
