Not really a FOTD

but more a face of last night and more because I love how my eyes turned out.  I found my dior make up brushes yesterday & so was able to properly have a stab at decent eye makeup. Stealing a few techniques I learned whilst watching the gorgeous Bex Bryson work her magic at a fashion shoot on sunday. 
So here it goes.

Face:
Benefit Play Sticks Foundation in Spin The Bottle
Benefit Lying Eyes Concealer in Shade 2
Urban Decay Bronzing Powder (obviously not very much lol)
Benefit Thrrrob Blush

Eyes:
17 pale pink all over lid
Barry M Dazzle Dust in Yellow Gold below crease on upper lid and framing lower lid
Barry M Dazzle Dust (possibly Lime I'm not sure as the label has worn) above crease on upper lid.
Avon Super Shock Gel Eye Liner in Black (donated by Bex from Once Bitten Twice Shy)
Urban Decay Skyscraper Eyeliner in Black

Lips:
Barbara Daly Lipstick in Icon

I used Urban Decay All Nighter to set my makeup as well as an accidental spritz of hairspray lol. oh well!
I think I've done this right. As you can see I'm still very basic with my makeup but it can only get better... I hope! 
Bex

I think I’m turning Gluten Free

If you didn't sing the title of this blog to the tune of 80's classic "I think i'm turning Japanese" by The Vapours, then we can't be friends. I'm joking. Mostly.
Gluten Free is a pretty big buzz word these days and, having grown up with a Coeliac mum, and two aunts and various extended family members, from a young age, I’ve always been keenly aware of the impending possibility that some day I may get the dreaded news. Well that day has come.

As if I didn’t have enough issues trying to cope with IBD and various other issues already I now have to be one of those people who reads labels, double checks menus, and asks restaurant staff “exactly how is that prepared?” To try and avoid cross contamination.  One of the things I vowed during these early stages of my transition in to living a gluten free life, I am not going to be a complete nazi about things. Yes I’ll avoid binging on donuts and huge amounts of pasta and bread - I made that mistake once - but I gave…

Creamy Delights and Disapointing Discoveries

It's been almost a year since I was privileged to spend the afternoon in Pamela Smyth's makeup studio and in that time not only has she won, yet more, awards for her work but I have taken her words to heart. One of the pieces of advice she gave us was to match product types when trying to achieve a natural look. Cream on cream. Powder on powder.

It's so simple when you think about it. Sticking with similar product types reduces the risk of your make up caking and allows for a more perfect blend, all allowing for that perfect 'no makeup' makeup.

With my skin leaning towards the drier side, although recently I have notice that changing as age and diet changes kick in, I stick to using cream products but I've struggled to find the perfect shades of cream blush. Yes, there are plenty of premium cream blushes out there, but not that many high street options. I do have an excellent palette from Make Up Revolution, but none of the shades give me the 'barely there&…

Lush Belfast Gets a Glowup!

Stop everything you're doing right now. Lush Belfast have opened their new store in castle lane and it is everything and more and you need to go to it now. Ok maybe not now - it's quite late at night while I'm writing this - but you know what I mean. 




To give you an idea of size, the new giant sized shop is split in to 5 main sections - face, body, bath, scent, hair - each of which could have taken up the old shop on their own; gone are the days of claustrophobia whilst queuing for a sniff of the latest product, now you can take a seat and relax while you try them out. Speaking of products there are a tonne of new ones to choose from, with quite a few having previously been Oxford street exclusives. Now, I'm a die hard fan of the bubble bars and bath bombs but I think my new favourite section is the wall of bath oils. Designed to looks like tiny hand made chocolates, you may want to keep an eye on the kids if you're bring them with you, according to my source (ha!) …
