Mac Wash And Dry Collection.

Hello Friends,

So last week I was scrolling through my email's and I received one from Mac about their new collection, The Wash and Dry collection. Naturally I clicked on the link to have a nosey and see if I could get my hands on any piece of this gorgeous collection, as well as spending money I don't have on more makeup!

I fell in love instantly and I knew I had to get something. Online Crème d'nude was sold out, so I phoned up Debenhams and asked if they had any and they did!  I was so excited that I rushed over there immediately. I much prefer seeing the collection in person and swatching everything, instead of buying online just for the sake of it and then it arriving and being a major disappointment. (Something I frequently find when shopping online at Mac).

I didn't like any of the blushers and the highlighter just didn't seem that great so I decided to pick up one of the Studio Sculpt Defining bronzers in the shade Golden Rinse. This bronzer is very sheer and has a slight glow to it. I've really been loving Sheer bronzers with a subtle glow lately, especially with a tan.

Then obviously I picked up Crème d'nude as it is the most wearable out of all of the shades but I really wanted Morange too but I will probably just pick that up in the original packaging. All of the lipsticks are sold out online now, but if you did want the collection then you should try your local Mac Store.

Did you manage to get your hands on this collection?

Warm Brown Eye Look.

Hello friends,
Today I'm going to try and write something a little different. So lately I've been so, so obsessed with really warm eyeshadow shades like burnt oranges, warm browns, rich coppers and deep reds. I really love the way they all blend together and as I have dark brown eyes I find that these are the shades that are the most flattering for my colouring.

To create this look I started by priming my eyes with my Mac paint pot in the shade Bare Study. This shade was limited edition so I don't think it's available now, but it's a tiny bit darker than Painterly. Next I used Makeup Geek's Peach Smoothie as my transition shade, I then built the colour up in my crease with Mac's Saddle. For my lid colour I placed Mac's Amber Lights all over my eye lid and blended a tiny bit of it into the crease. To deepen the look up I then put MUG Cocoa Bear, in the outer corner of my eye. For my highlight and inner corner I used Venus by Urban Decay from my Naked Basic's palette. Under my eyes I went in with Saddle and Cocoa Bear just to tie it all in together.
To line my eyes I used the Collection 2000 felt tip liner in black. Lashes I used a sample of a Dolce and Gabbana's Passion Eyes mascara. (Really bomb mascara!) Then I placed some natural falsies on top. I lined my water line with my YSL Crayon Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner.
I hope you enjoyed reading this. I really love this look and if you want me to try out any other looks then please let me know :-)

Lime Crime Coquette.

Hello friends, 

At the beginning of March I decided to try out the brand Lime Crime. I'd heard so many good things about their lipsticks from other bloggers so I thought I'd give one a try! I got the lipstick in the shade Coquette. It's one of there more wearable shades of the range! 
They are a bit cheaper than Mac at around £12.50 (still not cheap) and the packaging is really bomb! ;-)
Lime Crime prides themselves on the premise that their products are cruelty free and vegan friendly. They have a wild variety of shades from bright yellow to black lip shades! They also do other makeup products like eyeshadow and pigments.

I'm not the type of person that can pull off wacky shades so i do tend to stick to my comfort zones when it comes to lips! (Nude, nude, nude
Even a red can look too OUT there on me sometimes! 

In the tube it appears quite orange but on the lips its more of a muted coraly nude and it's gorgeous!! The formula is very thick and opaque, definitely a matte/satin finish and can look quite drying if you've got dry lips so exfoliating is key!

I really love this lipstick and I'm so glad I bought it! I can't wait to collect more of them! 
I bought it from a website called Love makeup and this guy was hard to get hold of! 

What shade should I try next?
