Fifty Shades Of Grey; The Make Up Vision

Leave a Comment

Oh yes, you read it right - i've created a make-up tutorial inspired by the fifty shades of grey book series and movie! Although Anastasia barely wears any make-up at all, my look is more based of the whole fifty shades of grey deal in general. I wanted to create something which in my eyes was super simple, but yet striking, seductive and most importantly of all - sexy.

I was originally planning on doing a bold cut crease with some red's or purple's or even both, but it just didn't fit as well in my mind as this look, the cat wing eyeliner, luscious lashes and a grey smokey eye to tie it all together appropriately.
Red lips always state 'sex' but I didn't want to pair it with a red lip that could well... eh hem... smudge everywhere, so I found this Bourjois lip-stain in my collection that suited perfectly. It's long- lasting and completely smudge proof - I guess I'll let you guys be the judgement of that ;)

Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection - The 301 Flat Contour

Leave a Comment

I don't think I've ever genuinely said out loud to my computer screen 'I need you in my life' when I saw the pixiwoo girls chatting about their new collection of brushes. I'm on a strict budget at the moment due to swapping jobs at the wrong time/moving out etc, so I could only limit myself to one brush as they are in the high end price range.
I've been watching the girls talk about each individual brush on the real techniques youtube channel, and the whole concept of this collection was a luxury brush collection as their original line went so well. 
I haven't had a chance to try any of the other brushes in the line, but this one I have which is the 301 Flat Contour Brush, feels luxurious to the extent that even though I was itching to use it - I almost didn't want to because of how perfect it was? Clean, rose gold handles.. I mean come on! I'm going to describe this brush as that amazing birthday cake that's so amazing that you almost don't want to eat it...

I'll spare the tease and give you a quick and snappy verdict - i'm addicted. This brush is so perfect for cream contouring and powder contouring, it's dense - but fluffy? The bristles which are high grade luxury synthetic bristles blend cream and powder products beautifully. The handle is rose gold so obviously it's a straight up winner. The brush is weighted slightly at the end which makes it feel more comfortable in the hand which is good as I never want to take it out of my hands...


This brush was priced at £22 on boots.

Till next time...

Please let me know if you've tried any other brushes from the line!

New Years Eve Make-Up


NYE is the one time a year when a girl can dress like a total slut cover herself in glitter and sparkles and no other girls can say anything about it... Why the hell not drown your eyeballs in glitter, your lips too if you're feeling extra fancy?! 
I feel like this look that i've come up with her is really photogenic because of the lashes and the semi cut-crease and the bold lips! I really didn't want to scrub this off at the end of the day...
