Merry Christmas!

Just a quick note to wish you all a healthy, happy Christmas. If you don't celebrate, I hope you are all well! I have a very packed week or so ahead of me, so I will probably speak to you again in the new year. :)

Best Wishes

FOTD: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Hello! I thought today I would do a bit of a Christmas themed look. I know it's been done a thousand times before, but I love it. Glittery red lips and neutral, 50's style eye makeup.

Sorry my skin is bad and my lips are cracked at the corners. Oh well! Anyway, for this look I used:


e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation in Porcelain
Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer in Light
Fyrinnae Rapunzel Had Extensions (as cheek highlight)
Sleek Blush in Suede
Ulta blush, can't remember the shade


Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Soap & Glory Lid Stuff in What's Nude
Asda George 4 colour eye palette in chestnut
Black mascara


Barry M Lip Liner in shade 3
Nyx Round Lipstick in Snow White
The Body Needs red glitter

Hope you like this look, and you all have a lovely Christmas if you celebrate!

FOTD: Living Dead Dragon

This is a look I wore last weekend when I went out for a friend's Hen party. I wanted to do something slightly 1920s inspired, so I went for a dark eye with green tones, which was darker at the inner eye area.

Sorry I look so miserable in the full face pic, I hate taking them haha! Anyway, here's what I used:


Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean
Spellbound Cosmetics Dragon Scales
Hi Fi Cosmetics Living Dead Girl
MAC White Gold Pigment
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero
Illamasqua Volume Mascara in Harness


e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation in Porcelain
Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Sin


Collection 2000 CreamPuff Moisturising Lip Cream in Angel Delight

Dragon Scales is the main colour in this look, it's a MAC Club-esque brown/green duochrome which, as usual, looks awesome over a black base. For this look, rather than my usual smoky look with this type of colour, I brought more of the dark colours into the inner eye area, quite high up which reminds me of the silent movie stars. I hope you like it!

EOTDs: Rainbow and Cut Crease

Hi everyone, just a quick post with a couple of the looks I've worn over the past week for you. The first one is a rainbow eye I did to wear to a makeup event I went to in Manchester.

It looks kinda faded in the pictures but it was quite bright in person, except for the inner corner. I can't remember exactly what I used, but I used Sleek Curacao palette and Kawaii from Shiro cosmetics for definite :)

The next look I wore last night to go see a production of Top Hat, which was really lovely!

I'm practising cut crease looks as I absolutely love how they look. It's a bit creased since I took these pictures when I got in at the end of the night. For this one I used Nyx jumbo eye pencils in Milk and Black Bean, Spellbound Cosmetics' Enchanted on the lid mixed with Shiro's Lolita. I used black and silver in the crease from a cheap Claire's palette. The waterline is a white pencil with Fyrinnae Omgwtf pressed over the top, and the lashes are Ardell demi 101s.

Hope you like them! I have picked up a fair bit of makeup lately, as I've been to the Clothes Show Live, so hopefully I will get some swatches up for you! I do plan on using a lot of it in my kit though so you might not see it in looks on here.
