“Are you going to keep your blog going,” asked my girlfriend, Roop. My immediate response was simply that I didn’t know. Moving across the world is a little exhausting and there are so many things to consider – then you’re bombarded with the copious number of things that creep up on you unexpectedly.

chocoalte eyes beauty look too faced

My 2014 beauty mantra has been all about experimenting with bold lip colours. This year I ventured in to the world of unusual (for me) shades like deep purples, blackened plums and a shade I once said I would never wear on my lips- reddish browns.

This year will see a lot of changes for me — I’m moving back to England! So excited to be in London again and with that comes an awesome promotion with the company I love and the chance to see my friends again. WHO’S EXCITED?!

With this new found excitement and life change, I’ve been experimenting a bit more about what I consider my “signature beauty look”. Hit ‘read more’ to see which products are helping me get this look!

nude smokey look

For someone who’s a bit of a beauty hoarder I don’t really mix up my beauty looks as much as I should. Awful, I know! I have been trying a new look lately but there will be more on that later. For now, check out the products I’m using for these two beauty looks when I’m strapped for time.

{The six stars}

These are the products you’ll need for both looks. Gotta love multi-taskers, non? The base for both looks involves Givenchy Foundation for a matte but glowing base and Dior’s Iconic Overcurl Mascara for volume and curl.

1. Givenchy – Teint Couture Foundation

2. Shu Uemura – Tint in Gelato in Cassis Delight

3. Benefit – they’re Real! Push-Up Liner

4. Diorshow – Iconic OverCurl Mascara

5. Dior – Addict Extreme Lipstick in Mirage

6. Lancome – Blush Subtil Palette

The first look is as easy as pie. Base as above with Shu Uemura’s Tint in Gelato in Cassis Delight on the lips and a cheeks. It’s my favourite lip and cheek product by far. Keep this badboy in your purse for beauty emergencies.

This look is all about the eyes. Using Benefit’s they’re Real! Push Up Liner I apply it to the lower and upper lash line, as well as the waterline.

For the cheeks I use Lancome’s Blush Subtil palette in Nectar Lace — bronzer, blush and a little highlighter for good measure.

For the lip I have pretty much one go-to nude lippie for a balm-like finish. Dior’s Addict Extreme Lipstick in Mirage is perfect for olive-toned ladies like myself. It has just enough caramel and pink in it to look natural but healthy.

Which is your fave? Ya’ll know I’m a red-lip aficionado but recently I’m all about the nude-lip, lined up combo!

burberry beauty look final

burberry beauty fall 2014

Recent events have had my pining for my homeland that is Britain. I’m missing the food, the side streets, the rude people and even the rain a little too much to handle. Naturally I’m gravitating towards anything with a British background and my recent opportunity to explore the Burberry beauty collection felt just like home.

I’ll admit I sometimes roll my eyes when I hear of luxury brands trying to tap in to beauty market at this point in time. “It’s going to be all about the packaging, I just know it,” is what I usually think about such a thing — Take Louboutin doing sixty something dollar nail polish. Please.

I digress.

Burberry’s beauty line surprised and delighted me. The quality of complexion, the unique shades and textures. So much luxury in one place without the sacrifice of quality. You’ll want to read more
