Just a quickie to whet your appetite whilst I’m busy. Six of my favourite NYX trios. All are pearl except TS13 – the two pinks and the blue. Purple/Deep Purple/Prune is possibly my absolute favourite – it does fantastic smokey purple eyes.

It’s summer (at last!) and the shops are full of brightly coloured clothes and accessories. From bright neons to crayon-box colours and pretty pastels, colour is most definitely where it’s at this season, as this selection from New Look proves.

The question is, would you take these colours as far as your beauty regime, and in particular your nails? (more…)

Spring/summer catwalks were filled with brightly coloured make-up looks. My personal favourite collection was John Galliano’s, with a variety of looks I like to call ‘Marie Antoinette meets Miss Haversham’. (Check out the looks on Style.com – http://www.style.com/fashionshows/collections/S2008RTW/detail/thumb/JNGALLNO )

In honour of Galliano’s collection I have created the Cupcake Princess look.

A bit theatrical for everyday wear perhaps 🙂 but it could be easily toned down for both daytime and a night out, especially with the wig out of the equation…! Here’s how to get the look:

*I try to mention a selection of products that are available in both the US and the UK so you can always find an alternative to use. Although a UK resident myself I do buy a lot of cosmetics from the US – check out my links to see where I shop*

The key to the look is a flawless, pale face. Skin was thoroughly cleansed and moisturised beforehand and the moisturiser allowed to sink in for 15 minutes before any more makeup was applied. I used MEMEME Perfecting Base Primer which has a slight iridescence to it, but there are loads on the market. Particularly oily
skin or skin with enlarged pores might want to try Benefit’s Dr Feelgood or Pure Luxe Cometics’ Eraser. If you already have great skin, a moisturiser with a slight shimmer like Superdrug’s Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream or Oil Of Olay have several whose names don’t spring to mind right now!
