Beauty wise, there’s nothing I love more than freshly painted nails. It completes your look and allows me to experiment with a wide variety of colours I’d be too shy to wear on my face. For some reason, I’ve found that pink shades can be problematic in their application so it’s hard to find the right one to do the job well. I’ve been testing out the JACAVA London polish in Blackberry Fool and here’s how I’ve got on.
I’ve always been a bit scared to wear darker lipstick shades. Perhaps it’s due to my pale complexion or the fact that I don’t want to appear as if I’ve stepped out of the 90s grunge scene. It wasn’t until my recent foray into sheer lipsticks that the pale pinks of MAC Angel and Topshops Innocent have been cast aside for a slightly darker, sheerer alternative. Chantecaille has always been a brand on my wishlist to try but with a wide variety of products to choose from it can be a little overwhelming at first. With any high end purchase, in my opinion the lipsticks are always a great place to start.
Purminerals Beautiful Creatures Palette*
Like any other self confessed beauty addict, the sight of a new eyeshadow palette leaves me weak at the knees! Especially when that palette is as beautiful as this limited edition offering from purminerals. Inspired by the film Beautiful Creatures this set of shadows aims to target lovers of sweet neutral looks and those who like something a little more daring, and with eight shades to chose from I’d say it caters for everyone. It also comes with a little mini lip gloss and a pencil eye liner.
I remember when I first started wearing lipstick that I thought sheer lipsticks were a bit of a waste of money. I couldn’t understand why people were paying for a lipstick which doesn’t have a full colour payoff until I discovered these beauties. Sheer lipsticks are the perfect excuse to pull off darker, more daring shades without looking overdone. I don’t think I could pull off a full red lip during the day but I have no problem with a slightly sheerer alternative.
