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.

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!

indian nail art finished look

{Indian summer inspiration}

I never pegged myself a nail artist and in all honesty up until last year I could barely paint my nails. “Be patient and start with the hand you find hardest to paint,” Leeanne of Tips Nail Bar told me. Well her genius advice worked and now I’m finding myself doing a lot more than just two coats. If I can do it so can you!

This look was inspired by the textures and colours of an Indian sari and my eyes wearing orange nail polish is the kick off to summer beauty. I wanted to keep it a little on trend by including a new nude (Dior’s Yacht) as the base.

{Minimal but bright}

Oh the colour of the year! Dior nailed it with Mirage. Complemented wonderfully with Essie’s Urban Jungle. My favourite nude of the year so far. This look is so easy to do with Sephora’s Complete Art At Your Fingertips Nail Kit.

This is easily the hottest nail polish to be swooned over in the blogosphere. Cobalt blue is all the rage in the luxe summer collections and Lancome’s Nuit D’Azur for their Summer 2014 collection.
