Naked eyes…

Hi guys,

I have never claimed to be a makeup artist, but I do enjoy makeup.  So I guess I’m more of a  makeup enthusiast!

So this is how I did my eye makeup the other day, using my Urban Decay Naked 3 eyeshadow palette. I wasn’t sure about this palette at first. I wondered if these colours would compliment my skin tone, but I must say,  I’m quite loving it.  I have never really worn pink shades before, but if you put the right colours together and create a smokey eye, you get quite a nice  bright finish… 🙂

I wore this look during the day at the weekend.  I wanted an understated, but made up look.

What do you think of the Naked 3 palette?

The most important thing is to blend, blend and blend some more, so the colours appear to seamlessly merge into each other.

Makeup is fun,  something to be enjoyed and we can all experiment. Mistakes may happen, but the key is to just try again…

Till next time….

Some current beauty faves..

Hi guy’s,

Here are some  beauty  products  I  use, which  have really become some of my favourite staple items.

 

Coco Chanel mademoiselle

Love this!  It’s a long term favourite of mine.  It has a classy scent… not too sweet, not too overwhelming, but potent enough to get noticed!  I get a lot compliments from both men and women when I wear this. DSC_0538

 

 

Revlon colorstsay foundation

I recently came across this and love it. It gives me great coverage and  a nice oil free finish. I mix the the caramel and the cappuccino colours to get my blend. It comes in many different shades for most skin tones.  I have combination skin, so I use this formula.  A nice liquid foundation, which is also very easy on the wallet…. DSC_0475

 

 

Victoria secret

An oldie but a goodie. If you use the lotion and then  apply some of the body spray,  you get a longer lasting fresh scent.  Love!

Urban Decay Naked 3 eyeshadow palette

Recently bought this.  The third in the  Urban Decay Naked series of palettes.  I love the metal outer case. I also have the first Naked palette. This palette has a great mixture of nice, bright, simple colours.

It’s a new season…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DSC_0501As the weather starts to change with the change of season, so does our style.  I recently wore this outfit. I wanted to dress simple, comfortable and weather appropriate, so I decided on skinny  jeans and a loose top.  I’m often accused of wearing a lot of black, so I added this coral coloured number. The top has ‘cut outs’ on the inner sleeve, but it was difficult to capture in the photos.

Have a great day….

xoxo
