I had such a clear idea of how this would look in my head that the way it picked up on camera means I HATE IT.
Instead of scrapping the photos and making that hour and a half a total waste, I’m still posting it to show not all my looks turn out how I imagined. And maybe you’ll still get some inspiration from it.
In real life my face was the same colour as my neck, but under my box lights it was showing up very pink

Sometimes I think to myself I’m playing it too safe, I’m being too fucking boring with Phee’s Makeup Shop.
The Luxe Highlighters are so much more majestic and fabulous that they deserve to be called something much more epic. And so the Unicorn Highlighter was born.
I want Phee’s Makeup Shop to be better than it is right now – more FUN – because at the minute I feel like it’s a bit, bare. All the looks you create with the products are so amazing and so varied that I want the website to reflect all the different things you can do with the products on there.
So I’m ending 2016 and starting 2017 as I mean to go on. Majestic and fabulous as fuck. Have a wonderful and SAFE (Mum in me is coming out) New Year!
My skin is far from perfect, but this new range of products that I’ve been using has really improved the texture and tone of my skin more than anything. I still get blemishes (hormonal and when I eat too much sugar) but I’m loving how my skin looks overall more than ever.
Even though I don’t have a photo of it as I don’t have it on me, to take off my makeup I use the Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm. You only need the tiniest amount to melt off all your makeup and it smells gorgeous. Whenever I don’t have it to hand I’ll use Coconut Oil to do the same job.
Use a damp flannel to take everything off and you’re good to go with your cleanser.
I’ve been itching to try glitter lips ever since my Lit order came in and I finally had a few minutes spare to give it a go on Christmas Eve.
Some words of wisdom if you plan on wearing them over party season:
– Some glitter WILL come off on whatever your drinking from/eating
– It will feel heavy on your lips, especially with product on your lips
– Remove with an oil based remover (coconut oil, saves the day every time)

This was a welcome one through my letterbox! I was running low on my original Primer Potion and was about to pick up another.
Enigma Primer Potion is a product with a difference though. Enigma is part of Urban Decay’s Ultra Violet Edge initiative with proceeds from each Enigma Primer Potion going to Crisis, a charity which helps homeless people across the UK.
For each Enigma Primer Potion bought and the money Urban Decay donates, Crisis will be able to provide one person with:
– A warm welcome and company
– Three nutritious hot meals including a Christmas Dinner
– A chance to shower and get clean clothes
– Advice on housing and employment
– Expert help with mental health and addiction problems
– (Probably the most important) An introduction to Crisis’ year-round services for training and support for the future
As this was sent to me, Urban Decay have kindly made the donation on my behalf. So thank you so much Urban Decay for doing so, and for raising awareness of such an important cause.
I think if you head to any city centre you can see how homelessness is an issue, and the most difficult part for charities is to establish that initial contact with someone. Crisis at Christmas helps to do that.
I’ll definitely be buying a back up of Enigma as I love the shade and would love to provide an extra donation.
If you’d like to support the Ultraviolet Initiative and Crisis at Christmas, Enigma is available in Urban Decay freestanding stores and online.
