So here are my answers to the ‘Just for fun’ make-up tag questions.  Hope you enjoy reading the post!

It’s been a while since I wrote a post (work and life have been very busy recently) and so I wanted to kick-start my writing again with a bold and colourful look.  I used the new UD Full Spectrum Palette, which contains a rainbow array of colourful eyeshadows.

Tip: Lining the eyes with black liner and using lashings of black mascara really helps define the eye when using such bright eyeshadow colours.

Note: I’ll try to write a post on the UD Full Spectrum Palette soon, along with swatches, to give you an idea of what shades the palette contains.  Think bright and colourful, ranging from white, yellow, orange, coral, copper, purple, cranberry, green, blue and black!

Here’s how to re-create this look:

MAC has released new iridescent highlighters as part of their ‘In The Spotlight Collection’ for Holiday 2016.  There are six shades of Strobing Cream (liquid formulation) and four shades of Extra Dimension Skinfinish (powder formulation) to choose from.  If you like highlighters which are glowy and bright, then you might like this collection.  You can see more here on the MAC USA pages and here on the MAC UK pages.  I purchased one of the Extra Dimension Skinfinishes in the shade ‘Beaming Blush and have a ‘sneak peek’ photo in my Instagram feed on my site (click here to see the photo on Instagram).

I mentioned in my recent post on the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints (you can see the post here) that they are very comparable to the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks.  I thought it would be helpful to write a post comparing these two products to help you choose which might best fit your needs.

Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints

Maybelline recently released the Color Drama Intense Lip Paints in the UK (aka Color Jolt Intense Lip Paints in the USA) and they have quickly become a favourite of mine.  The lip paints are smooth, pigmented and feel so light on the lips.  I think they are a good dupe for the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks – just as pigmented but at a fraction of the price.  Click here to read my post comparing the Maybelline and Too Faced products.

#1 Make-up Organisation and Storage: Lips and Cheeks

One of my readers (shout out to Julie!) said that she would love to see how I organise and store my make-up collection.  I really enjoy reading this type of post on other sites so I thought, ‘why not put something together on my own site’?

It’s always fun to see how other people store and organise their make-up.  It’s also fun to look at pictures of other people’s make-up and see what they have in their personal collection!

Note: I’ve separated my make-up organisation and storage into articles based around different parts of my make-up collection.  Once I started writing, I realised that keeping it as one post was going to be too long and a bit overwhelming.  This first post is based around how I store my lip and cheek products.  If you want to know more about any of the products in the photos here, let me know.

My Holiday Make-up Bag

When I’m on holiday, I like my make-up to be effortless and easy.  I like to look polished and nicely presented but I don’t want to have to spend much time getting ready.  When I’m visiting warmer climates, I also like my make-up to be very light and fresh; I prefer not to have much on my face at all.  Over the years, I’ve managed to whittle down my holiday make-up bag to those products that I know I will use.

I thought it would be fun to do a post featuring those products, as I know how hard it can be to leave products behind when you are a make-up lover! This post features my favourite face, eye and lip products for taking on holiday.

This look is a slightly brighter version of the ‘Twist of Colour’ look I posted recently.  For this look, I used a bright, shimmery silver on the lid, cork brown in the crease and a ‘pop’ of bright blue in the outer  v part of the lid.

Tip: The beauty of this look is that you can adapt it using any other colour in the outer v.  Try pink, purple, olive green, charcoal and black for a twist on the same look.

Note: You can use any brand of eyeshadow you like which has similar shades to re-create this look (if you don’t have the Vice 2 palette).

Here’s how to re-create this look:
