My Favourite Lipsticks

Here is a few of my favourite lipsticks I am loving at the moment...


Most of my favourite lipsticks are actually by MAC.  I think they just have such a good choice of colours and finishes with something to suit everyone.  They are about £15 to buy in the UK which I don't think is too bad for a good 'high-end' lipstick.

My first favourite is the colour 'Impassioned'.  This is a bright pink colour and is part of the amplified collection which means it is a very vibrant colour.  I particularly like this colour on blue eyes as it looks really nice when I have my blue contacts in.

The next colour I'm loving from MAC is called 'Morange'.  This again is from the amplified collection so a very bright vibrant colour.  It's a vivid orange with a slight reddy tone. This is a good statement lipstick if you just wanted to have a bold lip and nature eyes.

The next colour I love from MAC is very aptly named 'Snob' (he-he).  This is a pale pink colour and has a satin finish.  Its very girly and goes quite nice with a black smokey eye.  I took this colour to Ibiza bcos I couldn't take too many lipsticks and I knew this would go with a lot.

My last favourite colour from MAC (for the time being anyway!) is called 'Rebel'.  This is a very popular colour and I struggled to buy it at first.  It's like a dark pinky plum colour and is perfect for winter.  Obviously it looks nice in summer too and in fact this was another one I took to Ibiza.  It's a good bold lipstick and goes well with a nature eye.


The other brand of lipsticks that I love is the drug-store brand Make-Up Academy.  Their lipsticks cost just £1 and come in a variety of colours.  When I first purchased these lipsticks I was originally wanting to buy Costa Chic by MAC but it was sold out.  So I thought I would try to find a similar coral colour and for a £1 I didn't think I could go wrong, and I didn't!  These are the two corals that I found...

Firstly there was the colour Juicy.  This is a more pinky coral and perfect for a daytime look.  The other colour is called Nectar and this is a slightly more brighter coral with an orangey tone to it.  So I couldn't choose between the two and for a £1 I thought 'Heck, I'll just get them both!'  I really really love these colours.  They're quite glossy and give a really nice finish.  They do last a couple of hours too so I was dead impressed with these and will definitely be purchasing a few more!

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
