January Favourites ( YSL, Asos Petite, Oasis, Mac, Glassons, MarcJacobs)

Untitled #40

Hello Lovlies 
Here is this months January Favourites

Perfumes  - In the summer & spring months i really love perfumes that are very florally smelling i have been so inlove with Vera Wang "Pink Princess" if you love the normall "Princess" i would suggest you go grab this one too it smells so girly and fresh. Daisy by Marc Jacobs is also one of  my other perfumes that i gravitate towards more in Summer & Spring the fresh smell of Daisys are so beautiful i always get compliments when i wear this perfume.

 
Lipsticks - The YSL Rogue Pure Couture in shade 58 is the perfect light pink berry tone also the constancy of these Lipsticks are so soft and creamy. 
Twig by Mac is one of the new lipsticks in my collection its in a Satin finish and its becoming one of my go to lipsticks for work days as its a nice nudish pink toned colour.  
Here are two of my makeup looks the left one is YSL shade 58 & The right one is Mac Twig.






Fashion - Oasis have got the most gorgeous Kimono jackets and i just had to purchase the Berry Lace Kimono i thought it would be the perfect stable in my wardrobe seeing that i don't have any in my lookbooks the colour is gorgeous and i love teaming it with basic tees and skinny jeans or my next fashion favourite of the month the "Peg Leg Trouser" i had a massive obsession with the peg leg trouser back in 2013 they were my go to trousers i teamed them with collared jumpers to oversized tops and they fit perfectly for any shape and size they also look very traliored and chic


Skinny Jeans 
I also have been getting back into my Skinny Jeans and I am still on the ripped jeans trend so I have been styling my Glassons ripped black skinny jeans this month with oversized tees from Topshop this is the perfect look for chilled out days. 
Into The Woods - Me and my sister went to the movies to see this i really loved the movie the actors and actresses in it portray their roles perfectly i also love how all of the vocals in the movie blended well with one another the costumes where gorgeous i personally loved Meryl Streep's blue chiffon ball gown dress she wore it was so full of texture and glamour also the fact that Chris Pine tore open his shirt when singing Agony was  just really funny.

Girly Coffee Dates & OOTD (Kmart & Topshop)


Hello Lovlies 
Today I went for a lovely coffee & lunch date at the Caffe Chery Beans with my Mumma & Sister 
They also have really nice creamy strong coffee
                              Beautiful Coffee Art 

Their full breakfast are  filled with Bacon Eggs and Mushrooms pretty much the lot it's so full of flavour and the texture of the chorizo sausage with the bacon & asparagus and poached eggs and beans is so amazing this is one of the best breakfast's that I've ever had.

The OOTD 
I have been watching my fair share of Full House lately so I got my fashion inspiration from DJ im seriously Inlove with the show I just love the 80's & 90's style so I teamed my Floral dress from Kmart with my Topshop Chambary Shirt and my boots and my rose gold watch.


Cheeky Kmart Treats 
We also went shopping into a bookstore and Kmart I finally got the new edition of ELLE & UK Cosmopolitain which I have been looking all around for and i also am getting back into reading again so I got If I Stay. As for fashion I got a lovely chic Houndstooth midi skirt and top and I also got a darker floral dress and I got the movie Never Let Me Go so I can't wait to watch that as I love Andrew Garfield. 

                                 Have a lovely Friday

Hello Lovlies 
As you can tell from the top of the title this Makeup post is all about Mollie King from The Saturdays if you haven't heard of the girls go and check them out .
I've been a Team Sats fan since the girls started and I was watching some music videos the other night and I really loved Mollies makeup in Not Giving Up I loved her gold bronze eye look with a bit of Bronzer and a Red Lip to me that's a classic makeup look so I got some inspiration with this look.

For my base  used Rimmel London Match Perfection in Fair Ivory and Revlon Colorstay Pressed Powder in Translucent I used I applied my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze for my base look i then added the gold shade from Revlon Coffeebean quad and a little bit of all that glitters  in my inner eye to brighten it up and i added Twinks in the outer corner to darken it up a tiny bit. Add some Mascara and line your waterline with some black eyeliner.
I added some of my Bronzer in Cookie Crumble to add some contouring and colour to my face. 
For my Lipstick i used Mac Viva Glam 1 its a classic Red colour that goes perfect for Mollie's Look in the video.

Haunted Beyoncé Inspired Makeup Look (Mac Objects Of Affection & Rebel)


Hello Lovlies I have been so addicted to Beyoncé Haunted lately the song is amazing and her look for her video is so dark and beautiful so I made an inspired makeup look with my Mac Objects Of Affection Silver & Blues Pigements Set
For my base i used the Revlon Colorstay Foundation in the shade Ivory & my Revlon Colorstay Translucent Pressed Powder to set it all in place i then added a tiny bit of my Blusher in Cookie Crumble. I always fill in my Brows with CoffeeBean quad by Revlon its the last dark shade in the quad.


 
The base I used for my eye look was Maybelline 24Hour Tattoo in Audacious Asphalt and then I used a wet eyeshadow brush and I dipped it into the Blue Noir Mac pigement I added Satin Taupe in my outer eye and crease to smoke it up. 

Dark Berry Pink Lips
Her lipstick was fairly matte and darkish there was a glossy look to her lips so I used my Mac Lipstick in Rebel and I added some gloss to create the lip look.

                       Hope you enjoyed this makeup look

Mac Rebel & Satin Taupe


Hello Lovlies 
I am so addicted to Rebel by Mac it's become one of my favourite lipsticks by them the shade is a darkish purple tone with a tiny bit of a pink undertone this will be one of my go to lipsticks for the colder months that's for sure. 
For my eye look I just used Bad to the Bronze for my base & Satin Taupe by Mac in my outer eye I wanted a smokey but not too heavy eye look today.
Satin Taupe has become one of my favourite Mac eyeshadows I love the Frost finish and the brownish gold colour if you have started collecting Mac eyeshadows I would recommend getting this one it's perfect for every eye look you can make it more neutral or smokey.

                     Whats your favourite Mac Lipsticks or Eyeshadows ?
