Tuesday Takeover: The Blushing Giraffe

Tuesday, 29 September 2015

Hi my lovelies,

Sorry for the lack of posts of late, I've been uber busy now that my little one is on the move walking but I will be back with posts very soon!

In the mean time I have a great post from one of my favourite bloggers: Iqra of The Blushing Giraffe.




Tuesday Takeover: Truly Madly Beauty

Tuesday, 15 September 2015

Today I've got a mani post from the lovely Aysha of Truly Madly Beauty who is my go to blogger to ask mani related questions; she suggested CND Airdry to me last for fast drying nails that don't smudge and I haven't looked back since!

Hope you enjoy her post below:

Two Tone Geometric Nails

Thank you Safiyah for asking me back to do a wee Takeover Tuesday post on her lovely blog for you! I've been a long term fan of this lady with her seriously impressive makeup skills & I'm looking forward to the day when she finally teaches me how to contour right! I came to the conclusion that I may have been doing it wrong all this time after my mother inquired if I'd been in a fist fight on account of the "bruising" on my face...hmm. O_o *cough*

Anyways, I digressed majorly there didn't I? If you're familiar with my blog at all you'll know that nail art is my passion. Today I have for you lovelies a quick & simple two tone geometric design using two polishes from Loreal's Color Riche range.


Sunday Swatches: Urban Decay Naked Smoky

Sunday, 6 September 2015

Following my last Smoky makeup look post, it's only fitting to follow up with the review and swatches of the new Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette!

As a previous Urbanette (someone who applied makeup for Urban Decay on a counter), you could say I have ample experience with the brand and am still a hardcore UD fan as many of my friends, family and readers will know.
I've loved seeing the brand grow from strength to strength, you can read my Urban Story and Naked History for some background info on my experiences!

I've had the pleasure of reviewing and creating makeup looks for all three previous Naked Palettes on this very blog, and came up with my own guide to which Naked Palette is for your skintone here.

However, this Naked Smoky palette is something slightly different; I have to say I was a huge fan of the Smoked palette and still dip into it now and then, but now the Naked Smoky palette is on the market with 12 shades of matte, satin and sparkle, it may well be the palette I reach for more when I need a quick smoky look.

The Naked Smoky palette consists of warm bronzes, cool bluey greys and matte neutral browns too.
It comes with a double ended brush with one end great for blending (or smoking out) and the other end for smudging.
