Is Sunday glam a thing? Call me lazy but these are not the days I go the extra mile with my make up looks. Saying that, impromptu dates to the village pub after taking Akira for long walks in the woods has me wanting to make a bit of an effort
🙂 🙂 🙂
I’ve recently added a few new additions to my make up routine in general – pieces from NARS, Becca and Tarte. I have say, addicted to it all already. Shape Tape has a whole lotta hype around it but i totally get it – it’s a glorious under-eye concealer for me that makes it look like I’ve had more sleep than I have. Hand down the best for coverage.
This beauty look uses ten products to get an effortless sultry eye with a nude lip that is low maintenance when out for a casual day. Don’t let anyone ever tell you it’s unacceptable to smudge your eyeliner with your finger and call it a day. Words I live by!
I’ve always had a fear of reddish brown make up. Latent memories of multiple aunts in gaudy dresses and obscene layers of makeup were all concluded with a few sweeps of the ’90s brown lip. A shade that’s still hugely popular in the Arab beauty world you know.
Fast forward to 2015 and I’m all like “hey girl, loving your marsala lip” (pronounced Mah-sal-la if you grew up with an Indian family like I did).
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!
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.
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…
