Alex Box by Rankin

How much do i luv this Alex Box image from the Rankin Book, takes you right
back to Artistry, the colours, textures, layering, completely detached from
make up, its no longer make up its a work of Art!!!

This book is a must have look and read (Miminal words) if your looking for a whole new perspective and take on make up where Cosmetics and Art combine to truly give you inspiration to take your style into a new and exciting direction i definately recommend this!!

Models Co

Models Co Heated lash curlers are my new best friend, well used along with my trusted Shu Umera 1/2 lash curlers!
I like to curl the outer corners of the lashes with the shu umera lash curlers these are a great size to lift and curl the eyes and then top up with Models Co heated lash curlers to ensure i have a soft, smooth, upward lift with no harsh edge (that some lash curlers can create!).
The heated lash curlers heat up in seconds and to a great temperature to ensure maximum lift, i like to think they are like GHD'S for lashes!
Then load it up with Mascara, i am definately a lash/mascara girl!
Happy lashes!

To Phiff, or not to Phiff?!?!?!

Well my answer definately to Phiff!
After a recent trip to Mac's Soho store i have now found my fav lipgloss which yes is definately taken over from my old fav nice buzz by mac!
Phiff! is a new dazzleglass recently launches by Mac, this is a beautiful peach nude gloss with masses of tiny reflective particles which look amazing on the lips when the light hits it.
I like to use a lighter texture and colours on the lips especially when doing bridal make up as its less hassle for the bride to top up and easy enough to throw on quickly later on in the evening.
I also sometimes like to use this type of gloss on the centre of the lips with a darker gloss or lipstick to create the illusion of fullness, the old shading and highlighting trick again!
Phiff! smells lush and is sticky enough to be long lasting but not so that your sticks!
Dazzle glass in Phiff! £12.50 Mac - Good times!!!

Wedding Day Must have!!!

Cecilia Birthwell mattifying face papers have now launched exclusively at boots and i cant wait to stock up for my 2010 weddings.
The mattifying papers are great to absord and soak up any excess oil without producing build up you would normally get with powders, even the finest of powders will create a build up eventually so for oily to normal skin use face mattifying papers first then lightly blot with loose powder for maximum effect.
And you just have to love the quirky cecilia birthwell design, very chic for a wedding day clutch, also check out the price, a bonus @ £3.50!!!
