Tease

I love Dragon Scales by Lime Crime so much, I wanted to incorporate it into a more everyday look so I toned it down with Tease by Urban Decay.

This is also a little preview of a new Spring/Summer Tutorial! :)

Lime Crime My Beautiful Rocket – My Favourite Red Alternative!

Today I was rocking some leopard print and I was thinking – what better to go with leopard print than a classic red lipstick? Red is my go to colour when I fancy something other than nude lips but this time I thought I’d mix it up with some orange with the lovely My Beautiful Rocket Opaque Lipstick from Lime Crime!

I chose My Beautiful Rocket because it’s a really flattering orange shade. When I bought it originally I was a bit worried how it would look in contrast to my hair with it being red, but it’s proving to be a big hit! It looks great with blue/green eyes too because it makes them really stand out. As with all Lime Crime Lipsticks it’s a lipstick/lipstain so it stays put for a long time. My Beautiful Rocket also goes on really evenly too looking opaque with pretty much the first application.

I left the rest of my makeup pretty neutral, just with a bit of pink blusher and winged eyeliner – a very simple, quick day look when you want a splash of colour on the go! :)

Face: Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation 07, Illamasqua Concealer 130, Illamasqua Cream Blush in Promise, The Body Shop Bronzer 01.

Eyes: Illamasqua Eye Liner Cake in Mislead, Illamasqua Sealing Gel, Ilamasqua Masquara in Raven, Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake in Stark.

Subtle Gold Look Using Lime Crime’s Nymph

I was in the mood for experimenting the other day, so I came up with this very subtle gold look! I usually just go for a neutral smokey eye then black eyeliner to finish, play it safe, but I thought I best make use of all the make up I’ve acquired over Christmas. I picked a product at random to base the look on, so here it is, my eye look based on Nymph!

Nymph by Lime Crime is a loose powder eyeshadow,  it’s very easy to layer and blend to achieve the look you want. It’s a creamy ivory colour with a gold shine to it – lovely on it’s own or with other colours. I decided to use different gold tones to make this eye look, but with Nymph as the main colour all over the lid and towards the brow bone.
