The ‘natural’ look

Hey Loves!

So makeup is NOT my forte… but I love it. I love to experiment with makeup, and make myself look different. I have learnt a LOT of tricks over the years as a wardrobe stylist, from my lovely makeup artist friends.

Although I am not as fabulous as them and never will be, I wanted to start documenting some of my makeup looks and start to experiment with you.

Look 1… I am going El Natural… basically because I have NO clue what I am doing.

Here are the products I used:

BASE:

Hello Loves!

This week I have been rocking and LOVING the Ciaté London Mini Manor colour ‘Talent Scout’.

Not only do I love the name…It is this amazing purple that really seems to change its intensity in different lights… it can be really bright or deep purple… weird!

Anyway I love it!

However I have found that with the flat colours (none sparkle) they are very streaky, and I will list the colours I didn’t like in a future blog post… rant over… enjoy the pics.

They can be ordered here: http://www.zara.com/ca/en/sale/woman/shoes/glitter-booties-c541568p2381517.html

TIPS:

– Comfort level 8

– The glitter stays on

– No grip on sole so can be slippy

– They had sold out of most sizes, I am a small 7 but ordered a 6 1/2, they fit perfectly

Happy shopping

Polishaholic

I was lucky enough to receive the Ciaté London Mini Manor 2014 calendar as a Christmas present… it’s a NAIL POLISH ADVENT CALENDAR!!!

What’s included? 24 GOSH DARN AMAZING NAIL POLISHES!

Processed with VSCOcam with m3 preset

I love the Ciaté calendars as it’s a way to try different nail polishes without forking out an absolute fortune.

However just a note they do usually retail in Canada for about $75… which cheaper than buying all the colours. But is still an expense … so here’s a hint … if you wait until after Christmas, this set is dramatically reduced, you can get them as cheap as $25!!!

Anyway I have decided that every Friday I am going to do a swatch… I am going to paint my nails my fav colour of the week.

This week its:

ESPADRILLES, it’s a stunning ruby red. Perfect for the snowy time… it makes me feel all wintery and Dorothy like. We’re not in Kansas anymore!

Belly Baring

Belly Baring

Attention all my belly baring divas!

The crop top is still relevant this summer.

Your wearing them… your seeing them in every store, on every celebrity… everywhere!

There is no escaping the crop top again this summer, and why would you?

There are so many different styles of crop tops to get your hands on this season, from showing it all off, to giving just a hint.

Dressing it up with a slim fit skirt, or wearing it everyday with a pair of shorts. It is easy to mix crop tops into your summer wardrobe.

Be confident!
