Hi Everyone! My family got me the best souvenir ever from their holidays - the Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Palette! I didn't realize they even sold it anymore! This is just a look using mainly that palette, hope you like it!

Hi Everyone! Sorry about skipping these swatch posts this past few weeks, I haven't had a laptop! I'm currently loaning one of my friend, so I'm trying to get as many posts ready to go as I can and have them automatically post later. So, that said, this week's swatch is the infamous Darling by Gosh. This was my first nude lipstick (which I recently repurchased, €11.95) and at first I thought it was going to be completely unwearable. Then I discovered the trick to making it look nice is to gently pat it on with your finger, not slapping it on straight from the bullet. It is a creamy texture with absolutely no shimmer (yay!) that goes on quite opaquely. The colour itself is a very pale beige with a pink undertone. It's perfect with a smokey eye, I love it!

Hi Everyone! I've been in such a rut trying to think of new looks to do, and while the finished look itself isn't anything special here I thought I'd do it a little differently. This is really 2 looks in one, the first is the general way I wear my make-up during daytime mainly for work (on my days off I prefer to wear none). It's just a super simple defined eye using matte neutrals and the second look is one that I do if I don't have a lot of time to get ready for going out after I finish work, so I'll show you how I just tweak what I have already on to turn it into a night-time look :) Enjoy!

Hi Everyone! So I know I'm a bit late hopping on this wagon, but I got around to buying the They're Real mascara (€25) about a month ago and have been testing it out ever since. Here's my thoughts;

Hi Everyone! This is not a full-on tutorial as such, mainly because there's not very much to it, but I'll briefly tell you the type of products I reach for on those rare sunny days. So first of all I still apply my urban Decay Primer to make sure everything stays in place, as nothing seems to stay on my lids without it. I then go for a cream shadow in some subtle shade- this is Clinique 8 hour Antioxidant Cream Shadow in 04 Ginger-ly. You can barely see it in the pic, its very subtle but it helps to even out colouring on the eyelid. I used Sketch by Mac to line my top lashline, this helps make the lashes appear thicker and I like the subtle pop of colour. Clinique High Impact Mascara. I filled in my brows with Catrice Brow Kit. Products Used on Skin; -Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation -Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer -Mac MSF in Light and Medium Dark -Benefit Coralista -Urban Decay Urbanglow Cream Highlighter in Sin On Lips I like to go for something simple like Sleek Pout Polish in Bare Minimum.
