What I want for Christmas!!!

This perfume is my all time favourite. It’s for night time, but if I have it I wear it all the time. It's composed of  rose, patchouli and amber.

I've never had GHD straighteners and I always wanted them. Anyone I know tells me how good they are and that they only use this straighteners. My hair is wavy and hard to get it poker straight, but when the hairdressers tried GHD on my hair it looked just perfect. This new limited edition set looks gorgeous and I want it bad!
Yes, holiday please! I’ve not had one for ages. It would be nice to go somewhere hot and exotic like, Thailand, Jamaica or Mexico.






Let me know about your Christmas wishes.
Thanks

Shopping in Liverpool!!!

On Wednesday of this week I had a great day shopping! My boyfriend was so lovely he took me to Cheshire Oaks in Liverpool (http://www.cheshireoaksdesigneroutlet.com/ ). I’ve never been there before, but I really liked it. It’s like outdoor shopping village where you have designer brands like Burberry, Lacoste, Levi’s and much more. I normally don’t shop at designer shops, because they are so expensive, but at this place you get up to 60% off in every shop.  I even found store where they had discounted MAC, Bobbi Brown and other cool make up and skin products. I would advise anyone who leaves nearby to check this place out. It’s ideal for buying Christmas presents! :)



My boyfriend treated me to a very nice leather boots from Dune. Their original price was £140 and now they are £98. I have been looking for these everywhere.



For this day I have created bronze, sun kissed, sophisticated look. On the eyes I used Urban Decay "NAKED" palette (Virgin and Sin) on a brow bone and for inner corner of the eye lid, No 7 from Boots (not sure about the colour because label is rubbed off) for eye lid and Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil (Zero on top and for the water line and Ransom for underneath the water line). For the eye brows I used Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil called Oil slick (it’s black and sparkly).


It was windy that day so I have decided to put my hair in a bun.


Let me know what you think in the comments below.
Thank you.

The Glamour Doll look!




I always moisturise my face before I apply my makeup. My face skin gets dry especially in the cold English winters. I decided to try Neutrogena Multi-Defence Daily Moisturiser SPF15. It claims to protect your skin from: cold, wind, heat, pollution and sun (I will write a review about this cream at a later date).  Afterwards, I have applied Christian Dior Nude Glow Complexion Enhancer which works as a primer for the face. To be honest I don’t see any difference on me using this product. Next, I have applied Christian Dior Nude Foundation 032 onto my face with my fingers. Normally I would apply my foundation with a brush or a sponge. However, I found that to apply this product with a brush or a sponge is a nightmare. It does not spread evenly on your face. The good quality of this foundation is that your skin feels foundation free. I think this is a quite an important factor in foundation if you wear it all day every day. I’ve powdered my face with a bronzer “ Suddenly Sun – face and body bronze powder” to give it a bit of sun kissed look (don’t forget to apply a bit of bronzer onto the neck and the chest so that you don’t have orange face and a white neck) and contoured under my cheek bones and applied above temples the “ Too Faced Candy Bar Eye Shadow & Shimmer Bar.”





Next I primed the eyelid with Urban Decay eye primer potion to enhance the eye shadow colours and prolong their wear. The eye shadows I used from “Urban Decay NAKED Palette” are : “Virgin”, “Sin” on the lid and brow bone; “Naked” , “Buck”, “Smog” in the crease of the eye and  in the outer corner  of the  eye – “Gunmetal” to give a winged effect. On top of the eye lid I applied “Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil Zero” that I got in the NAKED palette. I only applied my “Christian Dior Diorshow Extase Mascara Black” on top lashes followed by “Eylure Double Lashes”  and white eye pencil on the water line to create this wide eye effect with the emphasis on the upper lashes.
On the lips I applied MAC “Subculture” Lipliner and glide on MAC “HoneyLove” Lipstick and finally to lift the lips with Gosh “Light’n Shine” Lip Glaze.
