Video: Tulisa from Ndubz inspired make up 'Morning Star'

 Hey guys,

 I was researching new make up inspiration when I found the new Ndubz video 'Morning star'. it's my favourite song on the album so I was over the moon to see this video. I feel in love with the stand out blue eyeshadow look and could not wait to re-create it for my subs. However I could not find the perfect blue- I found a shimmer one in my kit but not a matt dupe. In the meantime my lovely subscribers Jo and Annabellatina had requested this look. I found the perfect blue in my Sleek Circus palette so i hope you like the look and video.

 The products I used were:

Vichy dermablend foundation in 15
MAC studio sculpt concealer in NW20
Sleek brow pencil in brown
Sleek circus palette
L'oreal super liner in carbon gloss
Avon supershock gel liner in black
Collection 2000 big fake mascara in black
Eylure girls aloud lashes 'Nadine'
MAC's viva glam gaga lipstick or Barry M dolly pink listick
MAC's pink swoon blusher or Sleek blush in 'Flamingo'
Barbara Daly for Tesco powder highlighter 'Light and easy'

Hope you like and as always let me know what you think!

 Big hugs

January 2011- The review

Hey gorgeous peeps!

New year for me brings lots of promise-A new me, a new body, a chance to right the wrongs from 2010...  
 I was doing so well until the lead from my camera broke on day 23. I was in the recording groove and had loads of ideas left to do but I couldn't do them-aaarrrrggghhhh!

 I immediately ordered a new lead and 5 days later it arrived and the race was on the finish my 31 days of videos. I completed it today with my Jan faves video

 My faves are:

 Mac strobe cream
 Mac Boy bait cremesheen gloss
 Rimmel stay matte powder translucent
 Sleek pout polish in Scandal
 NYX false lashes no. 129

My undecided: The eraser foundation by Maybelline in Ivory

My worst: Divine lip tar by OCC. Just for the colour mind....!

 My highlight of Jan 2011: Talking with Eve Pearl at IMATS

 My low of Jan 2011: Breaking my camera cable!

 My monthly resolution for Feb 2011: Research new skincare regime as I'm breaking out every where!

I hope you liked my January review and stay tuned to my blog for loads more coming up.

Big hugs

Jessie J 'Price tag' inspired video

For my new  VIDEO I was inspired by another of Jessie J's looks. She is fast becoming my new style icon. I love how she is more refined than lady gaga and just as experimental. This is the look I chose to recreate.

 I used Eve Pearl HD foundation, MAC's studio sculpt concealer in NW20, Sleek make up's safari palette, l'oreal super liner in carbon gloss, Max factor false lash effect mascara, Eyelure natralites eyelashes and duo glue, MAC's strobe cream and MAC's boy bait cremesheen gloss.

 I like that it's pretty but glam. This is my pic of it.

Hope you like it!

Big hugs
