Monochrome Cool Brown Makeup Look

Today’s post is mostly inspired by the latest addition to my lipstick wardrobe in the form of the new Chanel Matte Lip Crayon in Hazelnut and while I might have originally been drawn to it because well, I love hazelnuts, it quickly became the cool nude I always looked for and could never find.

Testing New Makeup feat. Glossier and Milk

Aside from my current makeup brush obsession, I have finished of a couple of makeup products recently and found myself watching a lot of full face Glossier and Milk makeup looks videos. Now, I tried to keep things contained and frankly not everything in the ranges appeals to me but I’ve been having a bit of a play with the products I got. Continue reading “Testing New Makeup feat.

Pillow Talk Smokey Eye Look

It’s no secret I have a bit of an obsession with red brown eyeshdows and there are certainly a few in my collection starting with Nars Dolomites, pretty much all the eyeshadow palettes and a few singles I own. Now I previously discussed the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eye Palette here and featured more of the pinky beige look but seeing as the palette has now been restocked, I wanted to test if you could create a more smokey look.

The Nars Provocateur Makeup Look

I think it’s pretty safe to say I’ve got my bases covered when it comes to nude makeup and strangely enough I’ve found myself completely mesmerised by the new Nars Provocateur Eye Palette.

It also felt appropriate to pair this with a red lip but the reddest I’ll go these days is a burnt nude. Continue reading “The Nars Provocateur Makeup Look”

Nude Elegant Makeup Look

http://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=469783933&pid=uid724-32101418-7I’ve taken a little break from blogging simply because I’m at the point in my life when a certain someone bashing W.E. has brought me to the point of ditching House of Cards’ Leaving You in favour of Dance For Me Wallis. On the bright side, I just semi-booked a quick trip to Berlin in April so that’s something to look forward to! Makeup wise I did unfortunately break my little promise not to shop. ‘Elegant’ is an incredibly vague term to describe a look but that’s what I think it is. I tend to just reach for red browns but I’ve been trying something more neutral on my eyes recently. Not to say I’m ditching my warm browns but there is something elegant about a simple sculpted yet fairly natural makeup look. Continue reading “Nude Elegant Makeup Look”
