Get The Look...

Day to night

You Will Need...
1. Dainty Doll Lashes in Something Wonderful
2. Giorgio Armani Waterproof Silk Eye Pencil in 2
3. Maybelline Color 24hr Tattoo in Permanent Taupe
4. Nars Duo Eye Shadow in Vent Glace

1. Apply Maybelline Color 24hr Tattoo in Permanent Taupe, over your lid to form the perfect base for powders that'll last all day and night.

2. Pat the darker shade from Nars Duo Eye Shadow in Vent Glace, around your socket line, and the lighter shade on the top of your lid.

3. Finish by smudging Giorgio Armani Waterproof Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in 2, around the eye. Blend in using the sponge end and apply brown mascara for the day time, then add a set of false eyelashes like Dainty Doll Lashes in Something Wonderful, for the night.

Flapper Red Lips

Flapper Red Lips

Red lips are the only ones to wear this winter.
Go deep, sultry and dark like a '20s flapper girl.

1. Line your lips with an almost blackberry coloured lip liner. 
Blend the colour in towards the centre of your lips, 
but leave the middle blank.

2. Apply your deep red lipstick to the centre of your lips. 
Blot a few times between layers.

3. Finish with a lipgloss  just in the centre. Shape your lips into an "O" shape, pop your finger in the middle and pull it out to remove any excess lipstick to avoid getting it on your teeth.

In the navy

In the navy

Give boring black a much needed rest and call out the navy...
Classic, Cool & Elegant.

Brighten up your navy look with vibrant red lips, fuchsia pouts and juicy manis.

With the new year come new make-overs...
If you are bored of your long locks, but are not ready for the chop?
Here is a easy cheat to create a new style without even going near a pair of scissors....

This style will look best on layered hair so that you can leave the hair to fall naturally around the face.

How To Do It...
1. After blow drying your hair with volumising mousse or 
lotion, split your hair into two sections:
 the underneath and the top section.

2. Clip the top section away and then messily plait or braid the underneath section of the hair, pinning it flat against your head. This creates a base in which you can loosely pin the rest of your hair.

3. Take one inch sections of the top section and curl the hair with medium sized irons, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends. Spray each section with medium hold hairspray.

4. Once all the hair has been tonged, take down section by section and loosely pin the ends under and into your plaited foundation, teasing out the hair.

5. Finish with a firm but flexible hairspray for hold.

The Monochrome Trend


It's the classic colour combo you just can't get wrong...

Be sure to break up the black and white trend by 
baring some skin...

If like me and are not a fan of flashing your pins you can 
always work a shirt slightly unbuttoned.

Nail Trend

Nail Trend by chloejay1988 featuring a gray nail polish

Less jarring than black, metallic grey is a great way to add edge to a look in an understated way, and its super versatile too.

Looks great with hot pink, top to toe black or molten metallics for a totally smokin' look.
