These pictures are from looks I've rocked in the past.

Thick brows with bright orange lipstick to go with my massive bow turban.

Smokey green eyes

and finally, my classic red lip with a touch of class.

PS: no products listed because can't quite remember exactly what I used but will try and figure it out and post it later.

Firstly, I outlined my eyebrow shape using Rimmel eyebrow pencil in black brown (004) and then filled in the brows with NYX eyebrow kit in Dark brown/brown. I used MAC's select coverup concealer (NC45) to further outline the brows. I do this first so I can blend out the concealer using my foundation.

Face: I am wearing Sleek's Foundation in Terracotta and used Mary Kay's powder as a setting powder. I used same concealer as above under my eyes to cover dark circles and also brighten my face. I also used Sleek's contour kit in Dark to contour and highlight the cheeks and nose.

Eyes: I am wearing Rimmel's Glam'eyes liquid eyeliner on my upper lids, a black pencil on the upper and lower lashline and a black waterproof mascara on my lashes.

I am wearing BarryM's blush no5 on the apples of my cheeks.

Lips: Lined my lips using MAC's lip pencil (chestnut) and topped of with a natural collection lipgloss from Boots (no name on it).

Hope you like this look as much as I do.

Hey guys. Hope you are all enjoying the beautiful sunny weather this weekend?
On today's post, I will be sharing some of my favorite beauty tricks that I use daily.
  1. Make my own tinted lip gloss by mixing some lip gloss with any lip balm.
  2. Mix a matte orange lip stick with my concealer in order to cancel out darkness under my eye. PS: if you have a concealer palette with orange corrector then save your lip stick for your lips.
  3. Make my own tinted moisturizer by mixing my foundation with face moisturizer.
  4. To make the whites of my eyes look wider, I use light blue eye pencil under the eye and this can also be achieved by using white pencil on the water line.
  5. Always wait at least 5 minutes after applying face moisturizer.
That's all I can think of for now but this will be updated with more tips and tricks in the future.

Let me know what your beauty tricks and tips are.

As we are fast approaching autumn, these are the fabulous make-up trends hitting the runways that I love. Trends include:

Draw The Line
Thinly or thickly drawn liners have always been my thing so very excited to see this on the catwalks.

Since I am not much of a false lashes wearer, I will be investing in a very good volumising mascara.

It was all about the muted metals and smoky silvers on the catwalks but I will be swapping these will gold shades as that what I prefer.

The look that has no season or reason to be worn. I love a bit of red lip and I wear it whenever I feel like showing a bit of classic glamour.

Hope you all enjoyed my two cents?
What is your favorite makeup look for this autumn?

Love & Light
