I went to dinner on Wednesday night with the girls it was such a great night and as always filled with lots of laughs, Muhsine has posted some pictures on her blog. I have to admit my favourite part of meeting with Yinka, Tali and Muhsine is after dinner when we all pull out our make up bags and see what each of us beauty junkies is using and carrying around.
I have to be honest I am known to be a complete lipstick whore, I carry a minimum of about four lipsticks with me - I know I'm awful. It wasn't until the girls took them all out and lined them up I realised they are all the same shade of a BLAHH brown/pinky nude. WHAT'S HAPPENED TO ME! I used to LIVE for colour on my lips, I was known for my hot pink lips and now I'm all about the same smokey eye, peach cheeks and nude lips.
These were the lipsticks in my makeup bag on Wednesday night! Tut Tut.
Prior to dinner we had popped to MAC, I mean how could we not - I was very well behaved and didn't purchase anything! Those who follow me on Twitter will know I am on a make up ban for this month, I just have way too much right now! Anyways in MAC Muhsine picked up 'Impassioned' lipstick now this used to be such a firm favourite of mine, I used to rock it all the time. So I decided I would wear it the next day.. I really needed to inject that bit of colour back into my make up. Muhsine has posted it on her and it looks gorgeous on her but I really think this colour looks different on everybodys skin tone.
So yesterday as agreed we both wore it! I have to say I loved it, it felt weird at first but I felt so much more alive. It really is such a gorgeous shade it's almost a neon coral but quite a pink one!
As I put myself on a spending ban I have been digging out old favourites. I have noticed quite a lot of people talking about the Jemma Kid Dewy Glow, it's being compared to MAC's cream colour base. This shade is called 'Iced Gold' and it is such a pretty champagne/pearly colour what I like about it, is that the product is creamy in texture but not sticky and thick it almost has a powder like finish.
I used this product in this look, I applied it just under the arch of my brow, along my cheek bones a little on the nose and a tad above the cupids bow of my lips. It just gives such a pretty shimmer.
I have also been rocking such a neon Barbie pink colour on my nails. This one is called 'Funboy' by Rococo at first I was unsure about it but now I totally LOVE it! All the girls at work call me Barbie and well these nails definetley add to that look haha. It is a matte nail polish so I applied a glossy topcoat over it, my hands are still quite tanned and I think this colour works well with it. I can imagine it looking great on the toes on holiday.
