Matte liquid lipstick is one of my favourite beauty things ever when it comes to make up. I love wearing bright, weird coloured lipstick but hate having to reapply or struggle with transferring lip colours when eating, drinking or smooching. My first matte lip colour love was Illamasqua’s Encounter (my first ever Illamasqua purchase too) and then my first liquid matte lip was Lime Crime Velvetines, but since I fell out of love with Lime Crime due to their drama, I’ve been searching for a replacement and I’ve found it!
So I’ve done a Poison Ivy costume before a couple of years ago for my birthday and it was pretty much perfect, really was pleased with that one so please check it out! That time it was inspired by the Uma Thurman film version, this time I was messing around with some new products and decided to do my own inspired by. I wanted to do the Hush version of Poison Ivy as I’ve recently read the comic, but with the lack of green face paint I thought this would be nice instead.
Last week I made a flying visit to London and to my old home area of Shoreditch to finally step foot in Ace Hotel despite living in a building attached to it for over 6 months! Anyway, the 2 hour round trip to London is always worth it when it means Illamasqua and most importantly getting to spend some time with the amazing and inspiring Alex Box. The team introduced us to the new Earth collection which is available now and I’ve got two of the products to show you.
So yea, I’ve seen a couple of make up looks on Instagram lately where the eye make up is intentionally not matching and I really liked the idea, so I thought I would give it a go and see what I thought. Since it was my first try, I’ve gone for a subtle look. Read on to find out what products I used for this make up creation. Also, check out my accidental elf ears!
It’s that time of the month when I get my little pouf of blog inspiration back and get my ass into gear and back to making content for myself and whoever is reading. Hooray! Today is a little look I wore a few weeks ago and the first time of trying some of these new products.
So this morning on Twitter, the beauty loving world are getting their knickers in a twist over the MAC Cinderella collection, after being devastated that they can’t spend their well earnt cash on a bland collection of MAC shades (that you could get at pretty much anytime) packaged up in pretty pastel packaging to mark the launch of the Disney’s Cinderella. Well, calm down dears, it’s not the end of the world, here’s some alternatives for you.
I’ve been on a mission of trying to use up all the foundations I own lately, I have too many and none of them are quite right. My base of choice lately has been Sleek Make Up BB Cream with Smashbox BB Cream Concealer. This week I’ve been testing the Smashbox CC Cream to go along with their fab concealer.
