Arabian Dusk

I had a lot of fun with this look mainly because I got to collaborate with one of my favorite You Tube Gurus, Asahi Sasak (channel name SasakiAsahi), she is hands down one of the most talented makeup artist on You Tube!

Some of you might remember her by her old channel which was/is called ManWomanFilm, if you haven’t checked her out please do, I’m sure you’ll love her!

So now for the eye changes…

Grey Eyes

For Grey eyes I’d be tempted to go for more of the redish brown to contrast with the cool tones of the grey.

Green Eyes

Green eyes? Personally I wouldn’t change a thing, I think this looks great with green eyes.

Hazel Eyes

Again, I can’t really recommend any changes for Hazel eyes, I love it just how it is :)

Blue Eyes

The only thing I would really change for blue eyes is the waterline eyeliner, blue and blue just looks a bit boring, one thing you could do is use the purple on the waterline and the blue in the inner corner or, if you’re feeling really daring, go for an orange colour on the waterline.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial :)



Valentines Day Makeup

So today I’m going quite a girly look (I know…shocker!) I figured it wouldn’t hurt to do at least one girly look for St. Valentines day :)

I didn’t want it to be boring though so it’s still a little bit quirky with the heart and the rhinestone but if you’re not keen on these features you can just skip them.

Because of the pink this is quite an interesting look on any eye colour, though with some eye colours such as green and blue it’s particularly striking.

Grey Eyes

Personally I love this look on ANY eye colour but if you feel like the pink overpowers your eyes go for a lighter shade of pink.

Green Eyes

For this eye colour I’d almost be tempted to go greener on the lower lashline, Something like a lovely mossy green or even a dark holly green

Hazel Eyes

Honestly…I have no suggestions for how to adapt this look for this particular eye colour. I love it!

Blue Eyes

Hehe…I’d almost be tempted to use more of a redish shade for this eye colour. The contrast wold be stunning!

And here is the tutorial :) Enjoy!

S.O.P.A suporting makeup companies

I’m sure a lot of you have heard of S.O.P.A or P.I.P.A, if you haven’t then I’m sure the video bellow will explain it better than I could.

But this is not going to be just a blog post about S.O.P.A this is going to be a blog post about the many MAKEUP companies supporting then, something which personally infuriates me as they are effectively declaring war on the the bloggers, vloggers, You Tubers and consumers who buy and promote their products.

In enssence what this bill would do if passed is formally declare war on freedom of speech and the internet.

I will be listing all the makeup companies that I know of who are PRO s.o.p.a. and p.i.p.a.

Why am I doing that? I’m doing it in the hopes that people will UNFOLLOW and BOYCOTE these companies

The companies are:

-Estée Lauder Companies

(I’m assuming this includes M.A.C, clinique, and origins as they are owned by Estée Lauder )



So I would like to propose a “bloggers and consumers against S.O.P.A movement”. If you are a blogger or a reader please:

  1. UNFOLLOW the companies mentioned above on Twitter and Facebook and tell them why you are unfollowing.
  2. Write a blog post on this topic and help raise awareness on this topic (also name-and-shame) the companies mentioned)
  3. Boycotte the brands. Don’t blog about them (except to shame them) and don’t buy their products.
  4. Finally sign the petition linked bellow and help stop these acts going through

Review: 88 Colour Earth Tones Eyeshadow Palette

DISCLAIMER: All items were purchased by myself, the links bellow are affiliate links :)

I’m sure most of you have seen this palette at some point, these palettes are EVERYWHERE.

Costal Sents do them, you can get them off e-bay (though you do run the risk of getting a bad quality version if you do) but the ones I’ll be reviewing today are from Blush Professional.

I came across Blush Professional after they contacted me asking if I would be interested in reviewing their palettes,  I knew I liked these palettes as I had the matte pallet and the 120 palette around 2 years ago (they died after falling off my desk and smashing *sniff*) but I didn’t feel it was quite right to let them sent me the paletts and then say “oh you can get these everywhere”.

They (Blush Professional) had a bundle deal so I bough those to review, that way I can mention things like, that you can get these everywhere, without being unfair to the company.

Anyway, about the actual palettes

and the packaging….

One of the reasons I ended up going with Blush Professional and not other companies like Costal Scents is because they’re based in England and the were very well priced.

The downside of ordering products from America is that there’s a 50/50 chance you’ll get hit with a nasty import tax bill. For all 3 palettes that I bought it cost me £25 (including postage) which I thought was fantastic.

Obviously if you’re from America though it would be better for you to order from Costal Scents :)

The parcel arrived in 3 days which was shockingly good, unfortunatly one of the mirrors on the first palette (the one I’m reviewing today) was smashed but on looking at it further I don’t think that was Blush Professionals fault as they had packaged it extremely well.

I suspect that was happened is that a mirror was too large for the space it was meant to fit and was forced to fit and snapped in transit, because when I tried to fit the piece together the mirror was still just too big and the actual eyeshadows were fine. Not a scratch on them :)

As you can see the packaging was fantastic, easily the best packaging I’ve seen in a while. Not that I’m really crying over the mirror being broken, I never use those mirrors anyway, but that might be a concern for some of you if you were thinking of getting one of these palettes.

And now for the makeup…

These are the kinds of palettes that I recommend again and again to anyone starting out with makeup and wanting to experiment. It’s affordable and the eyeshadow is good quality.

This particular pallet I would recommend to someone who likes matte eyeshadow, wearable looks and the occasional shimmery highlight or just plain shimmer :)

There is a good mix of matte and shimmery eyeshaodw in this one, a few metalics, pretty much all of the colours being browns, beiges, whites and dark brown/black eyeshadows.


  • Velvety texture
  • Most eyeshadows are well pigmented
  • Very afforable
  • Cruelty free! :D
  • Huge range of colours

(Note that the swatches bellow are WITHOUT a primer:)


  • If you use up an eyeshadow you can’t just buy a replacement
  • Simple packaging
  • Not all of the eye shadows are well pigmented, lighter colours like the white (below) have quite poor pigment.

There is no way I could swatch all of them so I just watched a few of them, as you can see the white is pretty much transparent but colours like the black, red and browns are very well pigmented.

Where did you buy it?

I got the bundle deal from Blush Professional, you can get it here.

If you just want this particular palette you can get it here.

Hope you liked the review :)

Acid Leopard

I got the idea for this look after going through my Sleek pallets and saw the acid pallet.

I hadn’t really done anything with it since I did my Tron inspired look so I decided to do a leopard inspired look using the lovely neon colours in the acid pallet.

How would this look on my my eyes?

Because of the crazy colour combination this look is more whether you think you’re daring enough to sport it rather than if it matches your eyes.

Blue Eyes

If you’re not too keen on the whole look there are a few ways you can tone it down a bit while still being daring.

Green Eyes

The black eyeliner on the lower lid, you can just skip that step completely if you feel it’s a little to “emo” looking.

Hazel Eyes

The bright neon colours? Well you could just keep those on the lid and less winged out to keep it more subtle, just make sure you blend the edges out thoroughly if you do.

I hope you like the tutorial :)
