Spring Bloom | Peach Toned Eyes and Bubblegum Pink Lips


Hey lovelies!

Spring is almost upon us and I wanted to channel a look that was new and fresh! Pinks and peaches are a must for this time of year as they help to mark the beautiful transition to even brighter colours once Summer rolls around.

The inspiration behind the makeup featured in this post came from the recent London Fashion Week that featured light base makeup and cotton candy tones on the eyes. Thankfully I love both of these things and felt that I could do it justice with my own interpretation so that you too can get inspired for the Spring/Summer months!

If you're wondering whether or not I'm wearing brown eyeliner, the truth is it's actually black eyeliner that was muted and altered to look brown by the peach eyeshadow that I used. This was in no way my intention but I loved the overall effect and thought it went perfectly with the rest of the look. The bubblegum pink lips were the cherry on top of the cake as I felt that the glossy texture gave off that common yet slightly irritating glossy lip you get from lollipops, therefore tying in with the candy aspect without too much stickiness!

If you love this look as much as I do then be sure to leave a comment in the section down below so that we can chat all things Spring and makeup - two of my favourite things!

XOXO

Classic Date Night Combo - The Red Lip & Eyeliner


Hey lovelies!

Date nights may often be viewed as tricky things to prepare for when getting ready and whether you've been together with your partner for your definition of "ages" or are newly starting out, you want to look as good as you can - unless of course it's a couch date which in that case feel free to chuck your hair in a bun and wear your pj's!

There are so many different types of date night looks out there but I have always been in awe of the classic Old Hollywood red lip and black eyeliner combo. I find that it is such an easy look to create and if you've decided to go bare faced throughout the day, you can still have that no makeup feeling in the evening without having to add too much to your face.

The fact that this look consists of just two features means that there is always room to incorporate your own personal preferences for your base makeup, your brows and naturally the rest of your look, including that killer outfit that ties everything together!

Dates are always romantic and so it helps to have a makeup look that complements your smile, and is in tune with how you're feeling when you're with someone. Personally having cat-like eyes and a red lip reflects the romance that I feel when on a dinner date for example but that's definitely not to say that on dates that take place during the day, I choose the same look but rather something more fresh and glowy - it changes all the time!

Feel free to check out the end of this post for the full product description and leave me a message in the comment section down below letting me know what your go-to date night makeup looks like!

XOXO

It's A Mood: Deep Smokey Eyes

Hey lovelies!

Walking into the new year with smokey eyes like nothing is going to get me down! Okay but truthfully though, having this sort of makeup up on makes me feel like a badass woman and I feel like I've just entered a Bond movie, where are all my sidekicks and my James Bond?!

Smokey eyes, to me at least, are the definition of what makes the eyes super sexy and sensual often without having to even try! I love the fact that no matter what it is, the smokey eye has the power to adapt itself to any occasion it desires. In need of a subtle smokey eye for the day, choose lighter brown eyeshadows like I did here or if you're venturing out for a night on the town then look no further for a smokey eye suited to that kind of event!

I've got to admit, when my sister and makeup artist Elena Pylarinos MUA came to me with the idea of wanting to create this look, I was excited but unsure as to how it would look on me. Needless to say I don't think that I look like a raccoon but  the moment I saw my eyes I did immediately start singing a Pretty Reckless song and if you're not sure who that is then just think early Taylor Momsen when there wasn't an excessive amount of eyeliner and black eyeshadow hiding her gorgeous blue eyes!

More importantly, I want to hear your thoughts on the smokey eye; are you a fan of the sultry mysterious look or are you too worried that if you'll try it out then you'll just look like the eyeliner meme? Trust me, we've all been there so feel free to share your horror stories in the comment section down below! Speak soon hopefully!
XOXO
