Soaked

Sometimes going simple is best. I wear all my makeup looks out of the house, but here’s one that you could call more wearable – a bright lip, sharp brows and a strong highlight.

We need to talk about my love for the Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick formula. I wear Rosepout nearly every day, and Soaked lasts incredibly well to say it isn’t a matte finish. I did put a lip pencil under it just to make sure, but it lasted a whole load of cuppas and snacking.

If Illamasqua’s matte formula is too dry for you, give these a go. The Glamore range expanded last year to include a few more shades other than the nudes.

Blown Out

After that winged liner, I’m back in my comfort zone with something completely blended and blown out with no harsh lines.

Because I’m developing the Marbled Glow Highlighters at the minute (find out when they’re launched by signing up!) I’ve been trying more looks where I layer the original five shades. It’s so hard to decide on which combinations to go for, but I think I’ve got them down!

Wings

I feel like I’ve got a backlog of reviews right now because I need to get round to taking the photos for them. Instead I do something totally unhelpful – put on a load of makeup and write about that instead. Well done Phee.

This look was inspired by the look Lady GaGa wore to the Golden Globes 2016. It was classic Hollywood glam with winged liner and a bright white waterline that made her eyes look super bright and open. The rest of the makeup was pretty nude.

Not sure if I like this on me? Buy hey, if you want to know what I used, it’s all listed below.

Odd

I’ve been seeing a load of looks on Instagram like this and thought I’d try it out for myself the other day. It felt like I’d been lacking colour in my posts, so it was an excuse to throw on all the colours.

Have you ever tried this sort of look?

Alternative Festive Makeup

I’d been doing loads of ‘instaglam’ style winged liner, neutral palette looks lately and thought it would be good to go grungey again. So, this is a grunge take on a festive makeup. I hope you like it!

Christmas on Phee’s Makeup Shop

Seeing as though it’s the first of December I feel like I’m allowed to finally post about the Christmas gift sets on Phee’s Makeup Shop. For Christmas I’m doing different pressed product bundles as well as palettes, pressed products with palettes and two new eyeshadow shades! I feel like one of Santa’s elves over here.

Pressed Product Bundles

Grab the full Pressed Glow Highlight Powder collection, Phee’s Mineral Shadow collection or both together. Each pressed product comes in its own protective clamshell packaging so you can split them if you want to and each bundle saves you money.

PALETTES!

You were all asking for empty palettes to put your shadows and highlighters in, so I went and got me some palettes to stock on the shop! They’re faux leather, in a kind of antique gold that’s darker than it appears in the image. You can buy bundles with pressed products or just the palette on it’s own which is £13.

They’re finally here, so they’re no longer on pre-order. You can order them and I will post them straight to you – YAY. I was seriously having kittens over these damn things not arriving in time.

If you like these then they will be making a comeback after Christmas in small and large sizes too.

Limited Edition Phee’s Mineral Shadows

I wanted to add a gold eyeshadow to the collection and somehow ended up with two. But now there’s something for everyone in the gold shadow department.

Pyrite is an antique gold that’s pretty subtle – the dark base looks pretty neutral then BAM you catch the light and the gold reflect comes out.

Moreish is a foiled true gold. Super bright, super in your face and looks just like gold leaf.
