Sunday Swatches: Foundation Files - Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk

Sunday 20 November 2016

For my third post in this series of Foundation Files posts, I've chosen to review the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation as I've long heard amazing things about it. This is a requested post by my Twitter poll too, so hope you guys enjoy!

The shade range is pretty great (a good 24 shades in total!) but also hella confusing as it doesn't seem to be in number order.

I'll be swatching three of the shades (6, 6.5 and 7) on my face as they are the closest to my skintone, however I do have shades 8 and 8.5 that I have swatched below for comparison too, so read on to see what I think of the foundations and who I'd recommend it for.

Saf's Gift Guide: 10 Rose Gold Beauty Gifts!

Thursday 17 November 2016

So it's that time of year again and this year I am feeling pretty overwhelmed with the amount of cosmetic gifts that are available so I decided to do this Rose Gold one as it's one I've been mentally planning for months! 
The lines are slightly blurred when it comes to the "Rose Gold" tone as some products are marketed "Copper" but are the same tone as other "rose gold" products; either way they both look beaut.
If I get time to write another post before Christmas I will do so, but for now feast your eyes on these pics of rose gold yumminess and read on for more info!

Tuesday Takeover: Halima Fashionicide

Tuesday 15 November 2016

It's been a while since I've had a Tuesday takeover (mostly because I've been so busy with my own blogging to do list, I've not had the chance to ask for them!), but over the last couple weeks I acquired a few products that I believed would be better housed in a new home with the fabulous Halima of Fashionicide, so I put together a little package and sent them off to her and she ever so kindly came up with this amaaazing post.

If you've been following my blog for a while you may have seen her fabulous self on a previous Tuesday Takeover post (here). I have to say I am obsessed with her iridescent IG feed right now, I urge you to check it out!!

Read on for her review of the Urban Decay Razorsharp Eyeliner included in this look she created and in my last make up look post here <3

FF: Blue-Green Glitter Ombre Eyeliner Tutorial Make Up Look

Friday 11 November 2016

I put out another Twitter poll (I clearly have a lot of material to blog about at the mo, woohoo) and this Ombre Eyeliner tutorial won, with the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette tutorial as a close second so I decided to incorporate both in this look and hope you like!
For my YouTube, I'm trying to keep it as simple and easy to follow as possible as I personally have never really been one to spend more than 10 minutes on a YouTube video and find it quite off-putting if a video is (sorry if you do!). I just don't have the time personally so if and when I do watch a YouTube video, I find myself skipping to the parts I'm interested in if the video is more than 10 minutes long.
Basically, I hope to cut all my videos to under 10 minutes as much as possible.. so that it's all high quality content and not me jabbering on about things irrelevant to what the video is about.
So this is the look I created with the new Urban Decay Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliners, read on for the full list of products and the corresponding video tutorial!

FF: Soft Glitter Cut Crease Make Up Look + Tutorial

Friday 4 November 2016

In case you haven't noticed, I've been pretty consistent with my blogging this year; I feel like I have my blogging mojo back and feel inspired with my consistent posts so if you're a fan of these or find them helpful, please do comment below and let me know what you'd like to see more of!

This week's makeup look is a fairly simpler/less harsh version of a glitter cut crease that I created back in 2013 (blog post here, check out my marker pen brows though!)

Anyways, here's the final look and I decided to create a corresponding YouTube tutorial with it below (yay!), so let me know if you recreate it and if you found it easy enough to follow!
