Party Makeup

Whenever I have a party or big event to go to I know it's time to pull out the big guns of my makeup drawers.  The true tried and tested products that I know won't let me down.  My go-to staple products for the perfect party look that will last all night, not smudge or crease on me and most importantly look good in photos!

I got this recently and already it's become my number 1 primer and I wonder why it took me so long to purchase it.  It gives such a glow to the skin under makeup and definitely rivals some of the high end brands.

This has been hyped up everywhere and for good reason.  It has a great buildable coverage, amazing colour range and looks good in photos.

This product has good coverage, is very brightening which I like for a party look and I also really like the consistency compared to a lot of my concealers.

I bought the smaller under eye version whilst in America as I only really set my undereyes.  It works great and stops my concealer from creasing.

This is another cult product that has been around for a while.  I love this bronzer because I can use it as a contour and all over bronzer which also makes it perfect for travelling.

I really like Bare Minerals as a brand because they're products aren't as harsh on the skin.  I really like the blushes because they're in a loose powder foam which means you can control how much is applied to the skin.

To be honest, any of the brow products by ABH are winners in my eyes but I like this for a more dramatic look and the brow wiz for more natural days.

As you can tell, this is my favourite brand.  Her products can literally do no wrong and this eye shadow palette is the perfect mix of colours meaning so many looks can be created and it's great for travelling.  The shades are super pigmented too.

I've raved about this mascara before because it's just so good.  My lashes are long but thin and this thickens them right up.  I've just purchased the L'Oreal lash sculpt though and I'm intrigued to see what the fuss is about.

Becca x Jaclyn Hill highlighter in Champagen Pop

This highlighter is everything and really lives up to it's name.  Not to mention Jaclyn Hill is the QUEEN of highlighter.  It's everything you could want from a product!

I couldn't pick a favourite lip product but I do love a liquid lip for parties as they just add a bit more something and if you get a good quality one it will last a long time too.  Reds are my current favourite to wear to parties.

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 . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

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
