A simple 6 step 2-toned eye makeup look!

Step 1. Prime the eyelids and brow bone. 

Step 2. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, apply a highlight/champagne colour all over the lid up into the brow bone and into the inner corners of the eye.

Step 3. Using a tapered brush, apply a matte mid-tone brown above the crease and also take this colour down along the bottom lash line with an angled brush.

Step 4. Using a pencil brush apply a matte black pigment into the outer third of the crease. 

Step 5. Using a matte light brown colour, blend inbetween the crease and brow bone as a transition colour (this will eliminate any harsh lines) 

Step 6. Line the upper eyelids and inner rims with a black gel liner and add two coats of mascara.

- And Voila! A quick but effective eye makeup look!

Supporting Cancer Awareness.

Hey Ladies :)

Today I have been nominated by friends to post a MakeUp-Free photo to help raise Cancer Awareness. Sadly this disease is becoming rapidly common and causes so much pain & heartbreak among many people around the world. I think this small gesture which has gone viral on social media is a great idea to raise awareness and show support for cancer patients.

*(A very cold night's farming, haha!)

Also like many others, I am making a Cash Donation direct to the Irish Cancer Society.

I urge fellow Bloggers & everyone else this to do your bit for Cancer no matter how big or small, every little bit helps and it will be greatly appreciated by the many people affected by it.

Lipstick of the week!

Being a Lipstick fanatic I must own at least 50 colours and Russian Red is most definately my go-to red lip! It's an amazingly pigmented blue-toned red and looks great on almost any skin type. It goes on easily, has great durability and is not too drying on the lips which I find with some other Mac lipsticks.
I've managed to convince a lot of my friends to get this lipstick and they all love it!

What's your favourite Lip colour?
