Wedding make-up on myself.

Wedding make-up.

I had the pleasure of attending my niece's wedding yesterday and on myself I decided to opt for a smoky eye look and nude lips.  I was wearing a Topshop green dress and so wanted something a little dramatic to compliment it.I had prepped and had a bit of a tan with my beloved Sisley fake tan, I then covered any imperfections with my Nars tinted moisturiser and Bobbi Brown foundation stick, I don't tend to use powder as [...]

Black winged eyeliner look

Black winged eyeliner…

Today's blustery weather calls for a bit of drama I think - its all about the winged eyeliner today! I used Embryolisse moisturiser first and then used Cover FX compact foundation to even out my skin tone, Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer serum under my eyes, and then Anastasia Beverley Hills dip brow pomade on my brows.  To create the eyeliner look, use Urban decay eye primer first, then apply vanilla cream eyeshadow stick by Bobbi Brown all over [...]
