THE OLSEN TWINS - GIRL CRUSH ALERT

Known for their amazing sense of style, it comes as no big shock that they also inspire when it comes to makeup looks as both Ashley and Mary Kate always seem to have the whole effortless chic thing down to a Tee! I love that despite being twins they both have such an individual sense of style what with Ashley (on the right) doing the golden goddess look perfectly and Mary Kate (left) has the more grunge slept in liner with a 90’s style red lip. They started their own fashion line THE ROW back in 2006 which ‘reflects on a sense of relaxed and timeless elegance’ which is pretty much how I would describe their makeup looks too! They strike me as the kind of gals who dress for themselves and love experimenting.

HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT LIP STAIN

I like to wear a red to dark red/berry stain so for my lip stain I use the Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Plum and MAC Cherry Lip Pencil - Simply follow these steps….
1)Exfoliate your lips for a nice smooth base, I really love Ole Henricksen African Red Tea Exfoliating Lip Salvation
2)Make sure your lips aren’t too dry to begin with, so if you need to add a little lip balm into your lips and leave it to absorb or blot the excess off with a tissue.
3)Using your finger, dab the Clinique Matte Plum Lipstick onto your lips and work it in with your finger all over the lips keeping it quite sheer
4)Repeat step 3 for another layer concentrating the pigment left on your finger in the middle of your lips so the edges blend out much more transparent and without a definite lip line.
5)Take the MAC Cherry Lip Pencil and close your lips. Roll the pencil in-between your lips whilst closed concentrating on the centre of the lip and then pat over it with your finger so it blends into the rest of the lip, but this will leave a stronger concentration of pigment in the centre bleeding out to a softer finish and voila…..you will look like you’ve been eating cherries!!!!

NEW MASCARA REVIEW - FAIRYDROPS TOKYO SCANDAL QUEEN MASCARA

This was a recent purchase from BeautyMart. I picked this up after hearing a fair few other beauty bloggers raving about it. The wand is built up of three little rounded bauble shapes and the USP of this is how well it holds a curl. It’s a glossy black mascara and it is water resistant (however they do make a waterproof version also). Mascara is something I really struggle with on my own eyes, as so many end up leaving me with panda eyes especially when i’m on a set with hot lights all day. The Fairydrops Mascara gets a huge thumbs up from me! Not only does it hold a curl really well, but it drys quickly so you don’t get any imprint on the eyelid. It’s both volumising and lengthening without any panda eyes! 

The waterproof version was out of stock so I picked up the original but I think this being water resistant is perfect for everyday, and whilst it lasts really well it still comes off easily when you want to remove it.

CETAPHIL GENTLE SKIN CLEANSER

So this was another recent purchase as it’s a well loved cleanser by many of the beauty elite and I have heard a lot of good press about it so thought i’d get round to trying it, especially as my skin has been a little problematic recently. Cetaphil is a gentle cleanser that’s aimed at sensitive and dry skin. It’s soap free, fragrance free and can be used with cotton pads for a quick cleanse or with water and muslin cloth to remove makeup and cleanse. 

It’s a liquid/gel texture that foams really nicely so it does feel quite conditioning.

Have you tried this cleanser?

THE GREEN SMOOTHIE

The juice craze has been going strong now for as long as I can remember but when it comes to a healthy dose of all things great for your skin, for me I much prefer a smoothie! A smoothie contains the dietary fibre in both the fruit and the veg and I find these much more filling and tend to make them a couple of times a week.  

For my smoothie above, I added the below to a blender, I use The Breville Blend Active 

- 1 Small Banana (High in potassium, low in salt, great for energy, high levels of B vitamins)

- Half a handful of cucumber chunks (High in Vitamins A, C, K, high in antioxidants, and a good source of potassium)

- Small handful of frozen mango (Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and rich in pre-biotic dietary fibre, also adding some frozen fruit will make the smoothie nice and chilled and keep it less pricy to make at home)

- 2 handfuls of fresh spinach (Full to the brim with vitamins and minerals, high in iron and makes your skin radiant)

- 1 cup of coconut water (Full of natural electrolytes and very hydrating)

Obviously there’s so many ways to make a delicious green smoothie and mix up the ingredients till you find your perfect flavour combination. I really enjoy them as a great way to add nutrients to my body when I have a busy day ahead of me.

-B B Stunning Vibrant Eye Shimmer in Bittersweet (Very annoyingly since I have filmed this video it seems they have stopped making this colour so it’s harder to find, but to recreate the same look you could use Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in Burgundy as it’s close in price or Rimmel Scandaleyes in Bad Gal Bronze)

NEW BEAUTY SHOOT FOR WONDERLAND MAGAZINE

For this shoot it was really fun to play with the idea of the changing light as  we move closer to Autumn Winter. Our starting point for this shoot was the artist Anthony Gormley’s exhibition ‘White Light’. Within the makeup I chose to experiment with different textures and play further with the idea of light changing. You can see the full story and full credits on Wonderland’s website
