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!

It’s been a long time since I felt like it was okay to wear a bold lip with a smokey eye. Thanks to Yoncé this happened. When I first laid eyes on her epic videos the first thing I thought (being such a beauty nerd an’ all) was that the make up looks were sensational. I wonder if Francesca Tolot had anything to do with it. I haven’t done my research I’ll admit.

I did a tutorial on this look for StyleList.ca which you can have a peek at here if you’re eager to copy it.

The killer combo for this lip look was Nars’ Dragon Girl topped with Dior’s Gloss in Poppy.

So good it’s sinful.

Matte skin was never something I particularly desired. Even through my teenage years and oily t-zone’s I was trying to find a balance between dewy without looking greasy. A Clarisonic and multiple toners later that former pimple-faced teen has finally found the answers to a luminescent finish.

Chanel the '90s Model

{’90s Make Up Style}

This week’s Fashionmagazine.com challenge was all about ’90s make up. To me 1990s beauty is all about Sarah Michelle Gellar à la Buffy The Vampire Slayerand Cindy Crawford (who still, by the way, looks exactly the same). When I think of these women I think of the way they used natural shades to emphasize what they already have. For this look, I started my base with my newest obsession: Revlon’s Nearly Naked foundation. I love the old school powdery finish it leaves on my face even though it’s a liquid, yet it still has that modern day touch of a brightening effect for a healthy glow.
