Urban Decay recently launched their Naked Heat collection, including an eyeshadow palette, three Vice lipsticks and a 24/7 eyeliner. I picked up two of the lipsticks (Heat and Fuel) and the eyeliner (Torch) as I loved these particular shades. I don’t have anything else like Fuel in my make-up collection and Heat is just such a beautiful, burnished coppery-red shade. Wonderful additions to my make-up collection!

I used the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette (click here to read more about this product) to create this quick and easy golden peach combination. I wanted to create something which looked fresh and bright on the eyes, compared to the smokey, sultry blue combination featured in my first Saint and Sinner look post here. I used only one brush (the MAC 239) to create this look as well, keeping things nice and simple.

Kiko recently launched their Holiday 2017 Collection, titled ‘Arctic Holiday’ and includes three baked blushes. I couldn’t resist picking up two of the blushes as they were soooo pretty. The products themselves, the packaging and the outer box are so beautifully presented and look lovely. I think these blushes would make wonderful gifts for any make-up lover or as a special treat for yourself.
I recently purchased the new Kat Von D Saint and Sinners Eyeshadow Palette (click here to read about this product, see photos and view swatches) and just couldn’t resist trying out Ministry on the lid. For this look, I combined it with Stigmata, Crucifix and Relic to create a smokey yet colourful look.

Back in July 2016, I wrote a post featuring the Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer (click here to read the post). I really loved this product (and still do!) and it made me curious about the other Sweethearts products. My cousin’s wife mentioned to me that she had purchased the Sweethearts blush in ‘Peach Beach’ and so I thought it would be fun to check out the range.
After swatching (and re-swatching) each of the blushes, I settled on ‘Sparkling Bellini’. This particular blush has now become one of my favourites whenever I want to add a peachy-pink glow to my cheeks. The blush is made up of three complementary shades (more on that below), meaning you can get four different blush effects on your cheeks. Versatile, glowy and peachy-pink cheeks – I love it!
I felt like doing something different with my eye make-up yesterday and came up with this combination. I added in a slick of pale blue liquid liner along the upper lashline to add an unexpected flash of colour to a peachy-pink, orange and brown eyeshadow look.
Tip: If the blue liner is too much for you, you can just leave it out and stick with the eyeshadow look. I really liked how the eyeshadow combination looked on its own as well.
I have been looking for ideas for new posts and found this make-up tag on a beauty and lifestyle blog I came across recently (everythingmeli.com). I really enjoy reading this type of posts on other sites so I thought ‘why not post something like this here’? So here are my answers to the ‘Just for fun’ make-up tag questions. Hope you enjoy reading the post!
I’ve pasted the questions at the end of the post, so feel free to let me know your answers in the comments section below. I always love finding out about other people’s favourite products :o).
