pretty green eyes, so full of sparkle and such light..

Songs which inspire you...
just a quickie post here! i was listening to my old music and i rediscovered the TUNE 'pretty green eyes' and was inspired to create this look..
i think it's lovely and works well with my blue eyes! I used mainly ELF products with the exception of my collection 2000 mascara ''big fake'' which i LOVE.

here's the song incase you've never heard it :)
Pretty Green Eyes


this is YELLOW by Barry M. such a beautiful vibrant colour, this only took two coats. it's more of an orange based yellow compared with ciate: big yellow taxi and i feel it should have been named big yellow taxi itself, as the ciate polish seems more green based compared with the orange tones to this yellow. that being said, i can honestly say i love this colour! so beautiful and summery. i don't like some of barry m's formulas but this one seems great!

in other news - got my ears re-pierced today to find that they don't re-pierce old holes.. meaning i will have random holes in my ears, AND it hurt like a bitch. but the good news is i got some gorgeous earings for free which are rainbow coloured diamonds. can't complain.

(i also created this leapord print design, tutorial to come soon!)

what have i learnt today?


ah. the art of contouring. it has taken me several months to work out exactly how to make my cheek bones stand out and i've realised, this is the way! also, the more you contour, the better your black and white photos come out. this will be so useful for me in the near future as i'm filming a trailer as part of my A-level coursework and will be doing my actor/actress' makeup myself. awesome!

2. GCSE RESULTS need I say any more? petrified.. ( i am only a few weeks from being 17, i'm an oldy in my year group)
3. haven't actually been inspired to write anything but now i'm back!

also, go follow Jessica .. she's a lovely girl, I won the bourjois chocolate bronzer from her competition and recieved it within a few days..and there was a lovely note :) she often has competions but not to forget the content on her blog is really informative and helpful and she's very honest!

foxy locks extensions!

oh my gosh, i recieved my extensions this morning and i love them so much!
i got the 120g in the colour #60. they almost match my hair perfectly, i may dye them as they are 100% REMY human hair, although I might just leave them.. i like the two colours together! they are the perfect length. i'm so impressed, they cost £56 and shipping only took 1 day. amazing.

what do you think? :)

MAC shale e/s review

i really felt like I had to do a decent review on Shale. At first, I had no idea what to do with it, it made my eyes look bruised as an all over colour, it just looked plain bad when I put it in the crease.. but i've finally worked out how to use it and it's lovely!!

I put it just in the outer corner and used some white eyeshadow in the inner corner.. I have to say i love it. it's so simple and beautiful. The actual product itself (in the container) is strange, it doesn't seem to make ANY powdery bits when you swirl your brush around in it so i'm thinking it will last me quite a while, which is good because i'm really liking this colour at the moment :)
