Love & Cocoa is a beautifully rich, metallic chocolate brown shade from the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette).  I couldn’t resist trying it out on the lid alongside Holla For a Dolla in the crease and Famous on the inner lid.

Here is some new make-up news for this week:

Fenty Beauty will be touring around the UK in July 2018 with pop-up stores featuring the new Moroccan Spice collection and the whole range of products.  There will be pop-up stores in London (5-8 July), Glasgow (14-15 July), Nottingham (21-22 July) and Belfast (28-29 July).  I’ve never seen Fenty Beauty products in person so I’m really excited to visit one of the pop-up stores.  You can read more on the pop-up stores and find location information on Harvey Nichol’s official website here.

Too Faced co-founder Jerrod Blandino has released sneak peek photos on Instagram of the upcoming ‘Tutti Frutti’ collection.  The collection looks pretty big and like it includes an eyeshadow palette, blushers, highlighters, lip glosses and face sprays.  I love the Sweet Peach products and so I’m really excited to see what this new collection is like! You can see the sneak peeks on Jerrod Blandino’s Instagram page here.

Kat Von D has a range of new palettes coming out for Holiday 2018, including a blusher/highlighter palette and an eyeshadow palette.  You can see more on ‘trendmood1’ on Instagram here.

Charlotte Tilbury has just launched the new ‘Bar of Gold Trio Highlighter Palette’ on charlottetilbury.com.  The palette costs £49 and contains the Original Gold bar highlighter, Rose Gold (a light pinky-rose) and Gold Bullion (a medium sun-kissed bronze).  You can see the palette here.

Hourglass will be launching an Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 4 palette for Holiday 2018.  The palette contains two finishing powders, one strobe powder, a strobe blusher, blusher and bronzer.  You can see more on ‘trendmood1’ here and on Instagram here.

Quick and Easy Neutral Eye (Using Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette) to create this quick and easy go-with-anything neutral eye combination.  I wore this look with a red lipstick but it would go just as well with nudes, pinks, corals or deeper shades.

Lime Ministry (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really love the bright blue (Ministry) and the lime shade (Exodus) from the Kat Von D Saint and Sinners Eyeshadow Palette (click here to read about this product, see photos and view swatches) and wanted to see what they looked like together.  I like how the lime green pops out from the middle of the lid when the eyes are closed.

To complement the look: I used Benefit Galifornia (click here to read more about this product) on the cheeks, Makeup Revolution Highlighter in Golden Lights (bright light white-gold) to highlight the tops of my cheekbones and MAC Shanghai Spice (creamy peachy-nude) on the lips.

Iwanted to create a colourful, smokey look using the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette) and came up with this combination.  I really liked how using New Money (a metallic medium fuschia-pink) in the crease added some brightness to the look.

To complement the look: I used Kiko Marmoreal Biscuit Baked Blush on the cheeks (click here to read more about this product), Laura Gellar Baked Brulee Highlighter in Toasted Coconut to highlight the cheekbones and MAC Bombshell lipstick on the lips.

Purple Emerald (Using Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My last couple of looks with the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette) have been fairly subtle and so I really wanted to experiment with a bolder look.  This look combines together deep metallic forest green and purple eyeshadows to create a strong, defined effect on the lids.

To complement the look: I used The Balm Balm Springs Blush on the cheeks, The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer (click here to read more about this product) to highlight the tops of the cheekbones and Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paint in 610 Stripped Down (click here to read more about this product) on the lips.

Here is my second look using the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette).  Holla For A Dolla is a really beautiful, metallic olive green and I couldn’t wait to try it out with some of the golds and chocolate browns in the palette.

My Favourite Make-Up For Long and Busy Days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In January, I was doing some intensive lecturing work and as part of that, I wanted my make-up to last well across the day.  I found some products within my existing make-up collection – and some new products – to be extremely long wearing.  Some of them also enabled me to skip parts of my usual make-up routine.  I thought it would be fun to put together a post on these products.  I might also try and do some more detailed posts on each product as well so let me know if that is something you would like to see!

Pink Plumage

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really wanted to do something different with my eye make-up and came up with this bright pink and green colour combination.  The deep teal in the outer part of the lid adds extra depth to the eyes and also helps bring the pink and green shadows together.

To complement the look:  I used Kiko 3D Hydra Lipgloss in Shade 26 Sparkling Hibiscus Pink on the lips (see photos of this product and read more here), Too Faced Sweet Heart Blusher in ‘I Will Always Love You’ on the cheeks and Anastasia Glow Powder in Starburst (pale metallic pearly-pink) to highlight my cheekbones.
