Tulisa 'I need you' video look


This is my take on the look Tulisa wore in Ndubz new video 'I need you'. It's a fantastic 40's inspired look with a modern twist. I used Rimmel 1000 kisses lip pencil and lipstick in red for the lips and 'woodwinked' eyeshadow blended in the crease over a 'brulee' eyeshadow base for the eyes. This look has dramatic eyelashes so I layered up on the MAC mascara X and then put on 2true lashes. I love this look and with a little practise I can put these lashes on with ease. Have a go at recreating this look and let me know your thoughts.

The style black collection

I was not sure about the SB collection. I was not too fussed from the swatches on temptalia and here in the Uk we are behind in collections so I did not race to my local MAC on the day of release like some other collections recently....

However, I did pop in to the Cambridge branch to have a peek. I LOVE IT!

I bought three of the four mineralized eyshadows. I bought cinderfella, gilt by association and . They are great. I have used them dry or wet, on a base or on it's own and they have been fab. I have found that using my UDPP and fix + on top seals it in. I use them with a little carbon in the outer v for definition. I also bought the 'holy grail' Volcanic ash exfoliator which I have used a few times.... not too sure if I am ready to ditch my St Ives apricot exfoliator but I will let you know.

I am off to London with the hubby tomorrow so maybe I will add to my collection. Stay tuned peeps...

Pixie Lott 'Boys and girls' music video inspired make up video


Hey guys!

I have posted a new video tutorial based on this look. It is an awesome dramatic look concentrating on emphasizing the eye.
To get this look I used Rimmel recover foundation, Macs studio sculpt concealer in NW20, Primark brow gel, Mac's blackground paint pot, Urban decay 24/7 eyeliner in zero and Macs mineralized eyeshadow in cinderfella from the style black collection. I used Rimmel sexy curves mascara with 2true flase eyelashes to get a dramatic eye. For the lips I used ambre rose maybelline colour sensational lipstick and on the cheeks I used Maybelline colour mouse in pink.
This is a great look that is great on light skintone and blonde hair. Keep the lips nude to focus on the eyes. Let me know what you think!
