Orange Eyes for Spring

Despite these occasional storms it's really starting to feel like Spring and I couldn't be more ready for it. I'm definitely a summer lover, I'd happily trade in the other three seasons. One colour that always gets me thinking about Spring whether it's on lips, cheeks or eyes is orange, I love seeing a pop of orange in someone's makeup it's such a happy colour.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in Le Rouge

I'm sorry if you're well and truly bored of looking at lipsticks after the three Anastasia Beverly Hills posts of late but I HAD to share this with you guys immediately. I won this lipstick on Twitter from one of Dave Lackie's generous giveaways and finally got round to trying it. I'd RT all the time and never expect to actually win something myself, so exciting!

I won a YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in shade 01 Le Rouge and was so thrilled, I don't own a lot of YSL makeup so it always feels super fancy and winning this was such a treat.

Glitter Charcoal Face Mask

Face masks aren't something I've really talked about on here before even though they're something I use regularly. I reckon a lot of you will agree that slapping on a face mask is one of the easiest ways to feel pampered with minimum effort.

It was my birthday last weekend and this mask was one of my gifts, it came at the perfect time as I was just about to stock up on peel-off masks after discovering to my horror I'd run out. It's like they knew!!

REVIEW // Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette: Part 3

I can't believe it's the final part of this review at last. Having so many shades to share in each part has made this feel a lot more of a slog than it really was. If you haven't checked out part 1 and part 2 yet go have a peek first. This last part is slightly different than the other two because the majority of these six shades are mixing colours.

Blue on blue eyes

For as long as I can remember I've heard people say not to wear blue eyeshadow if you have blue eyes. To be quite honest I think I'd struggle to brave blue eyeshadow whatever my eye colour, yet I saw someone talking about this the other day in reference to the new Colorpop x Zoella eyeshadow palette and thought I'd have a play around.

I don't own that palette I'm afraid so I had to delve into my kit in search of a striking blue with the aim to do two quite different looks, one big and bold and the other slightly more wearable.

REVIEW // Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette: Part 2

Happy day of Pancakes, beauts! How many has everyone eaten?? I'm not going to be able to have any but I'm definitely not above making myself incredibly jealous and have been oogling everyone elses on Instagram.

If you haven't yet checked out part 1 of this series have a peek and see what I thought of the first six lipsticks in the Anastasia Beverly Hills palette. Today I have the middle row to share with you so here we go.

Berry Eyes Reloaded

I said I'd be back soon to share a new berry eye when the last one didn't come out the way I expected and today is the day. I've been giving you some time to get over the disappointment of how underwhelming the last one was and hopefully you'll enjoy today's look which is a little more striking and a stronger pop of colour.
