Lace Eyes

I have been planing this one for so long so I’m over the moon that I’ve finally uploaded it! :D

I got the idea for this one around the end of August (last year) so I’m pretty happy to finally have it off the paper and into a tutorial :)

As you can see I’ve made some slight changes to the original design I had. I found that if I added the lace on the bottom lid all the way into the inner corner from a distance it looked too much like a dark circle or just a black eye.

(For those of you wondering the design on the right was the design idea I originally had for the valentines day look I uploaded a few weeks ago)

There isn’t really a tone of logic in showing this look in different eye colours seeing as it will suit any eye colour but seeing as I’ll probably still get people asking me to do it I will.

There are a few ways you can make this look less plain if simple rhinestones and liner isn’t glam enough for you.

How about using different kinds of rhinestones? Different colours or even studded rhinestones if you want a “lace and studs” look.

There’s no reason why you have to use black eyeliner.

If your skin is very dark an absolutely stunning alternative to using black eyeliner is any kind of metallic eye liner, especially gold!

And my final suggestion would be why not use some kind of colour on the water line? I know I partly lined the out corner of the waterline but there is no reason why the rest cant be filled.

Green, blue, turquoise eyeliner? Gold? The options are endless :)

Enjoy the tutorial!

Review: Lush Sound Bath

Any of you that are familiar with Lush will know that they recently released a new treatment at their spas called the Sound Bath.

This would be my second time having a facial (not a Lush one), even thought the Sound Bath isn’t technically a facial so I should really say a spa treatment. The first facial/spa treatment I had was a bit traumatic, as at the time I had severe acne and all the therapist kept taking about was how she couldn’t believe how many spots I had.

Needless to say that didn’t leave me with a very good impression and I left feeling even move stressed out and insecure than when I had entered.

Anyway back on track, I’ve arrived about an hour early at the Lush spa in Kingston so I’m going to tell you a little bit more about the treatment while I wait.

Basics:

  • 1 hour treatment

  • £65

The best way I can describe it is almost a bit of a spa therapy treatment designed to relax and re-energize you, I’ll be quite interested to see how this turns out as it’s not the cheapest of treatments and I’m stressed out of my mind right now.

So Lush…let’s see how this goes…impress me :)

I haven’t been this relaxed in ages! My skin feels amazing! The only negative thing I can really say is I wish it had been longer.

“Wow…that is all that was on my

mind really after that. Just wow!”

I’ve already linked the video above to let you more about the actual treatment, you don’t really need me blabbing on about it when you can just watch the video so I’m going to tell you a few thing about the treatment that the video doesn’t tell you.

Things I noticed in the treatment:

  • The bed/treatment thing was heated. Ugh, I want that for my bed! Soooo nice!
  • The smells were just sublime. I know a lot of people are scared of “that” lush smell but there was nothing overpowering about thing. Lovely natural subtle smell. During the treatment I felt like I was lying down on hot moss in the middle of a magical forest (as cliche and sappy as that sounds).
  • There is no rush. I didn’t at any point during the treatment feel like I had to take what was given and then rush off. After the treatment they let you sit down with a nice cup of handmade herbal tea (and I’m not a fan of herbal tea but I liked this one) and relax a bit more till you’re ready to leave.
  • After the treatment I couldn’t stop touching my face. It felt relaxed, firm and healthy.
  • I almost expected to leave and then get stressed all over again after a few hours. So far, (and I’m writing this on the train back home) I don’t feel stressed at all.

Thing to note:

-As random as this sounds do try and go to the loo before you have this treatment, even if you feel like you don’t have to (they do have toilets there). Trust me, unless you haven’t drunk water all day, after an hour on a warm bed with the sound of water all around you WILL need the loo.

Pros:

  • 7th heaven of relaxation…ok maybe that’s a bit over the top but really, super relaxing.

Cons:

  • Not a cheap treatment but in that case I thinks it’s worth it (or at least as a one off treat).
  • There are not many of them in the UK (and at the moment they are only in the UK). So far there are 4 of them (I went to the one in Kingston as I didn’t really want to travel to the one right in the middle of London. With all the dirt and pollution in the air and the stress of coming back I felt it would be a bit counter productive). Hopefully in the future they’ll be opening up more spas in England and in other stores around the world.

Conclusion

I don’t really have much else to say other than I love this treatment. I haven’t tried any of the others, but I will soon hopefully ;) Which one do you think I should try out next?
Love, love, love.

Effie Trinket Makeup Tutorial

I think it was around 4 months ago I finally got around to reading the Hunger Games and as much as I love Katniss until the movie comes the first look I will be doing is for Effie Trinket. I just HAD to do a tutorial for her! :D

There are a few photos of her so far, the main two are the ones shown below.

The one on the left is the one I decided to recreate, even though I did make a few changes of my own to the makeup, and the one on the right was the promotional image for China Glazes’ collection based on The Hunger Games.

I wanted to collaborate with SimpleLittlePleasues for this look as I’d seen her art when she posted a response to my Acid Leopard look.

As for the nails I wore in the video I’ll be uploading a tutorial on those in a few weeks, for the moment you got all of Colette’s (aka SimpleLittlePleasues) video’s to see!

Anyway…enough blabbing! Enjoy the video! :)
