Hi guys! Well it's Eurovision tonight and I'm sure like myself you're all getting settled down to sit and take in the uh... wonders.
So to celebrate the occasion and because i'm a little bit bored of looking at my new plain short nails I've done a wee Eurovision inspired mani. Using M&S Autograph Purple & Purple Rain and Bundle Monster stamping plates I've created a very simple homage to the butterfly logo.
Something I haven't done in a very long time is sit and play with my makeup. If you look through my old Bebo & MySpace albums you'll see an embarrassing amount of "selfies" taken during my university insomniac days!
This practice has lessened over the years but hasn't completely gone away. Luckily blogging has given me the excuse to play and label it as a Face Of The Day. So here's how I spent my Bank Holiday Monday. How'd you spend yours?
Bourgeois Healthy Mix Serum 52
Benefit Fake Up 01
Barry M Dazzle Dust 29 Yellow Gold
Barry M Dazzle Dust 75 Lime
Inglot Liquid Eyeliner 34
Gosh Velvet Touch Eyeliner Green Devil
Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet Mascara
Rimmel Apocalips 303 Apocaliptic
Last night I got to check out some of the new S/S Favourites from NYC, Rimmel & Sally Hansen courtesy of the lovely Fiona from CODY PR & Paddy from Makeup Pro Store. They introduced us to some new products and reintroduced some old faves and Paddy, who is one of Belfast's most well known make up artists, gave a short lecture on the new trends in makeup (such as blending different shades of foundation for contouring instead of using powders to keep your make up looking dewy)
I had a great time and have madly fallen for both Apocalips & Appelcious. You can see below I'm wearing Appelicious in Big Apple Red in my FOTD/NOTD. I'm also wearing NYC Big Bold Curl Mascara and Quick Drying Nail Polish in High Line Green (those of you who watch the voice may have noticed Jessie J wearing a similar green for the live auditions. Or is that just my obsession that made me zone in on them?)
Not bad if I do say so myself. Especially when you can spend less than a tenner for the lot!
Soooooo some of you may have seen the teaser for our next video and been like "Dayum, get that uploaded already".
Well, I can tell you that the video has been edited and lovingly prepared to be sent out into the world of YouTube.... Until I deleted the main files on my ipad and can no longer export the video anywhere. So, I thought no problem because I know for a fact that I just backed up my ipad because I know technology likes to play tricks on me. Plugged her into iTunes and its like "oh hey you got a new ipad! :D"
So, I've been looking for other solutions and the best I can work out is to record the video while its playing in imovie (because the video itself can be played directly from there). Or find an app for that.
If anyone knows of any way I can salvage it from imovie please let me know!
In the mean time why not have a wee watch of the teaser again :) http://youtu.be/1m7tfPbcgKw
We've been nervously holding on to this bad boy for a couple of weeks now but the time has come to introduce ourselves verbally. We decided to do this by joining in on the "What's in my bag?" tag on YouTube.
