Encounter

So this is today’s FOTD! Having to give my eyes a rest so I thought I’d go for some bold lips today – you can never go wrong with some red lipstick. :)

Face Of The Day – Encounter

Face: Garnier BB Cream 02 Light, Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation 07 (used as concealer), Natural Collection Foundation Powder in Medium, MAC Powder Blush in Peachy Keen

Eyes: Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake in Stark, Illamasqua Masquara

Lips: Illamasqua Lipstick in Encounter

OPI Holland Collection – Thanks A Windmillion

This is the last of the OPI Holland Collection varnishes I bought a while back – Thanks A Windmillion. It’s a lovely minty green colour that’s a bit darker than some of the others out there, like Essie’s Mint Candy Apple, which are more pastel-y.

I was going to do a Spring/Summer ’12 tutorial but my eyes just aren’t agreeing with my contacts today – all you lens wearers out there will know the feeling!

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! :)

Review – Garnier BB Cream

After being bombarded my several different adverts for BB Creams in the past few weeks, I thought it was about time I gave one a try. I’ve tried lighter foundations before – like MAC Mineralize Skin Finish – and just not gotten on with them so I was a bit apprehensive this time around!

Garnier Miracle Perfector BB Cream

It probably helps to understand a bit more about BB Creams, there’s a bit more to them than just being tinted moisturiser!

Lime Crime Chinadoll Palette Tutorial

Today’s been another lazy Sunday, a great opportunity for a better mess around with the Chinadoll Palette by Lime Crime. :)

I thought I’d keep it pretty simple creating a sort of smokey eye look focusing on the colour Fly Dragon Fly from the Chinadoll Palette.

The main colour I’m going to be using for this look is Fly Dragon Fly – the fiery red – so it’s a perfect look for those of you with green eyes as the reddy / orangey tones will really make your eye colour stand out!
