Sundays EOTD

We have been experiencing some great weather in Belfast this weekend. In an attempt to spend as much time as possible outside in the sun I chose a very basic eye combo that was not time consuming.

Today I'm wearing Mulch all over my lid with Print in the crease, Blacktrack fluidline for liner
and for mascara, Cover Girl Lash Blast.

I hope the sun was out for you where ever you live :)

Wedding EOTD

My bf's aunt got married yesterday, so I spent the whole day away at the wedding.

The ceremony was lovely and overall it was a great day which everyone enjoyed. The night was filled with drunken dancing and shots with my Mother in Law, now thats what weddings are all about :)

For my makeup, I wanted something subtle and not too over the top.  After much consideration I opted for MAC's smokey eyes holiday 2008 palette.

Scant was applied all over the lid with satin taupe in the crease. For mascara I used Maxfactor's 2000 Calorie followed by Ardell 110 false lashes (cut in half).

For the rest of my face I used:

- Revlon Colorstay foundation in Sand Beige
- MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark
- MAC Well Dressed Blush
- Chanel Bronze Universal
- MAC Hue lipstick
- Covergirl Wetslicks gloss in Guava Splash

The majority of the wedding photos were taken on my bf's dads camera but I did find one on mine of the flower girl (bf's little sister). I will upload more photo's once I get copies.

Enjoy you bank holiday weekend everyone x

Wedding Outfit!

I gave you a brief preview of the dress and shoes i'm wearing to a wedding next in my latest You Tube video.

Here is the outfit on:

Dress: Warehouse
Shoes: Dune

It was a toss up between this dress and a French Connection which I had blogged about previously. I just think this is more suitable for a wedding.

Here are closer pics of the shoes and dress:

Youtube Channel!

I've just uploaded my first video to YouTube. I don't know how the guru's can do this on a daily basis, it is nerve wrecking (hence my mumbling).

So if your bored this evening feel free to watch my pathetic attempt at a hair tutorial :)

Saturday, 9 May 2009


12 o' clock today marked the start of my weekend and also a change in nail colour. This is usually the point of my week when I can wear wacky colours which are not office appropriate.

Lollipop26 had mentioned OPI's Mod About You on Twitter which reminded me that I have yet to wear mine. I picked this colour up after watching a video from LisaLisaD1 (if your not a subscriber got check her out!) and this is what she had on her nails.

Without flash:

With flash:

It looks a lot more toned own in the first photo but in person it is a bright baby pink with lilac undertones. Depending on how I feel on monday I may wear it into work if not i'll revert back to my new favourite, China Glaze's Evening Seduction :)

My new blazer

It's finally reached that time of year where a winter coat is no longer required, therefore mine has been retired to my second wardrobe in amongst the rest of my clothes which I don't really wear anymore.

Despite not needing to wear a heavy coat some covering up is still required, mainly in the form of blazers and spring jackets.

I already own a black blazer but I find that it can be a bit blah and have been constantly looking for the perfect grey one.

Introducing my Topshop find:

This is exactly what i've been looking for.  It's not too light nor too dark and I especially love the lining on the sleeves. It looks fab with skinny jeans and heels or with dresses, this is how I will wear mine.

New foundation brush

Do you love the airbrush finish the 109 provides but hate the way it sheds?

If the answer to this question is yes then you need the LY34 from Louise Young.

It is the round version of the 190 brush which is my second favorite for applying my base. The hair is extremely soft although it is denser than the 109 and cannot be maneuvered just as easily around the face as the head is more domed than flat. Just like the 109 it can get into all the small crevasses of the face and speeds up the foundation process nor do you have to worry about streaks.

My 109 is now restricted for use with my Chanel Bronze Universel only, although I'm not sure how long it will hold up due to it's copious amount of hair loss.

I haven't heard a lot about the makeup artist Louise Young or her cosmetics line. I first came across the range because Pixiwoo uses the foundation brushes in a few of their tutorials.

Has anyone else tried any of the brushes by Louise Young? What are your opinions?
