Hope you all had a great weekend? Mine was busy with the twins, work and being a Stepford wife. The juggle is real!
In relation to the post I previously wrote on Spring 2016 trends; lets get on the topic of one of the hottest trends – the bright blue eye shadows, cobalt, navy, cerulean, teal…the list goes on! There is so much more theory when it comes to colours, so I will try to keep this post short, sweet and as informative as possible.
The key thing about this trend is finding the right blue for your skin tone and eye colour. Blue is a cool colour so this will compliment different undertones quite well. The colours we see depend on the colour of the light source, also considering different ingredients used in eye shadows have filters that can reflect a different colour in the light. Have you ever noticed when you get your foundation done at a make up counter in a department store it always looks different in day light?!! Well, natural daylight will give off a bluish tone and artificial lighting will give off a yellowish tone and fluorescent light gives off a green tone. This is why I always do my makeup in daylight it reflects my true skin tone/undertone. Also remember that when you buy a colour with the same name from different manufactures, the colour will never be the same.
Putting a brighter colour in the inner corner of the eye opens the eye out, making it seem larger. Where as darker colours close a space in. So lets avoid the darker blues around the inner corners of the eye. I’ve made up a list of the good Blues out there!
- Motives Pressed Eye Shadow – Dreamy £11.95
- Nars Dual- Intensity Eye Shadow in Cressida £21, available on the 15th of January 2016
- H&M Eye Shadow Peacock £4.99
- Dior 5 Colour Eye shadow Palette – Carre Blue £42
- Cle De Peau Powder Eye Colour Solo £33, available on February 2016
I hope you found this post informative and helpful, I always enjoy trying out trends and adapting it to my features because you should never just follow trends but rather make them suite you.
P.S. Stay beautiful inside and out! X.
Hi Beauties 😃
Winter is coming so protecting yourself from the cold is a standard procedure! I’ve noticed that my lips get dryer than usual during the winter, causing them to ‘chap’ and my lipstick or gloss makes it worse!!! And sometimes using lip blam before applying your favourite matte lipstick causes it to shine! Or it feels greasy with your normal lipstick! This season I’ve decided to ditch my lipstick and opt for lip liner and gloss! I use vitamin E or C lip treatment before applying lip liner and then finish it off with my non sticky lip gloss from Motives cosmetics! Yes NOT Sticky lip gloss…I stand by it as many customers who know the brand would back me up on this! The vitamin E or C keeps them moisturised without the greasy feeling, in fact Motives Cosmetics has a range of lip treatments to suit ones need! So keeping your lips luscious this season is an essential!
Motives Retro Red Lip Liner £12.50
Motives Vitamin C lip treatment £14.00
Motives Vitamins E lip treatment £14.00
Motives Pucker Up lip plumper- diamond £13.50
I hope you dolls keep your lips luscious this season! Stay beautiful inside out. 😘

Hi Guys and Dolls, 🙂
I’m sorry that I have been MIA lately, still trying to find a balance and making time for my blog, beauty training and launching my Unfranchiased business. The beauty school (LCBT) has 15 units to cover that have taken most of time studying/practice; I really love it! So far I’ve covered day, night and occasion make up, body art, French plait, fish plait and facial techniques, which I’m pretty confident in, plus practice, makes perfect! There still so much more to learn and I cannot wait, also I do not want to bore you with all the terms so will show you the stuff that I’ve covered so far. I will make sure to carry on posting as often as I used to and hope you beauties are still enjoying my blog!
Khloe Kardashian inspired this occasion make up I did for Ana she was going to a wedding! Keeping the Smokey eye very minimal, using browns and 3 different shades of gold, with eyeliner top and bottom, double lashes and bright red lipstick, cheek contour and blush to finish off the look. Hair Styled using Halo Extensions, her hair is in a bob! So I went for half up hairstyle with loose curls.
Body Art Hand Animals, zebras and a swan guess which ones mine…The Toucan. Body Art Robot Leg, that was my first attempt!
My professional facial set up! Also my first attempt doing a fish plait, first I practice on the doll and then plaited on Katie.
There will be a lot more posts in greater detail on how to and I’m so thankful for my lovely followers that have joined me on this wonderful journey, also I hope to gain many more new followers. Please do feel free to comment or ask questions, always happy to hear from all you Guys and Dolls ;-). X
