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

{Night in New Year’s Eve Look}

I’m a little too excited for New Year’s tonight and I’m not even going out. Instead I’ll be enjoying a feast of Chinese food (cheat meal!) with my main man some awesome friends. Could you really ask for much else on a cold winter’s night?

Seeing as I’ll be home I decided to take some inspiration from  Christina Aguilera’s beauty look and opt for something a little seasonally inappropriate.

{The Inspiration}

I saw this beauty look on Christina and majorly swooned. So gorgeous right? I took her orange hues and made them a tad more pink. Coral if you will! I so wish my hair was this blonde though…

eccentrico palette

{Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Palette Holiday 2014}

Armani’s Limited edition palette is a bit of a splurge at $90 odd so I’d fully only recommend it for the true beauty collectors out there. That being said the product is sensational.

{Eccentrico without the overspray}

I was totally not expecting this awesome BAM of colour on the palette. At first I was disappointed that the shimmer was just an overspray and then this happened. I mean, it’s like make up graffiti I LOVE it. It’s just enough shimmer to ring in the New Year I think.

{Lancome Vernis in Love – 520 Étincelle de Neige}

This nail polish drives me wild and is my mani of choice for our night in celebrations. I Love how it looks like hardened, glittery snow on your fingertips.
