Growing up in London i’ve always sported a short edgy crop. I would dye my hair a variety of different colours every other month. Some days I might wake up and have an uncontrolled urge to go pink or blue or just for the heck of it, green. However, the more I started travelling back to Nigeria I became very aware of hair. It was everywhere, long luscious bouncy hair. I stuck to my crop as long as I could until one day I decided to venture down the path of.. a weave on!! *gasp*
This week our video tutorial is by an amazing makeup artist Carly (aka @Glitterdollz7). She is currently a contributing editor for FaceOn Magazine. If you’ve never heard of this publication that’s because it’s still quite new but it’s a must have in any avid makeup artist’s collection. It’s a simple concept, a magazine that has been created by makeup artists for makeup artists. You can check out their website on www.faceonmagazine.co.uk
But let’s get back on track… Last week we had crystal lips and this week we’ve gone with a Cheryl Cole inspired look as seen in her “Parachute” video. It’s a great editorial look, quite simple to achieve as long as you have the patience. Of course you can feel free to tweak the colours and make it your own, as once you’ve seen this look, you’ll be hard pressed to keep recreating it for other shoots.
The lashes featured in the tutorial are similar to “Mandy” or “Zelda” available from the http://www.SacredLashes.com range. For a more unique take on the look, you could try using “Cookie” or “Tiffany”. They all come with a complementary vial of glue, however we also sell Duo glue for those of you who intend to use ALOT of rhinestones. Lol
Last week we were amazed by the newest M.A.C collection (It sure put me in a makeup coma) so this week, lets look at something closer to home…….. drum roll please………. seriously drum roll……. THE SLEEK PRIMER PALETTE.
This primer palette is a which was created due to customers requests on facebook and is a permanent product in the sleek makeup line.
MAC has teamed up with every girl’s favourite (and some boy’s) super heroine, wonderwoman to create a knockout line of limited edition supersized collection for spring 2011. Wonder wonder… wonder wonder womaaaaan (You know you love her really!)
The collection which was scheduled to be released on 10th of Feburary in the US/canada and March internationally includes: mineralize skinfinishes, nail laquer, mascaras, eyeshadow quads and in true Wonder Woman’s love of astonishing accessories, brushes, mirrors and bags.. sorry no gold cuffs or lassos on sale.. but you may want to go buy some just for old times sake!
Why are some people plagued with really dry skin while others get away with soft supple silky skin?
Some people are just naturally born with a tendency towards dry skin but environmental influences play a major role in most cases of dry, flaky skin. Healing dry skin on the face can be far trickier than it seems.
A L♥√ع for Blushes
I never understood the beauty of blushers up until last year when I bought my little ’box of tricks’ by w7 (approx £7.00).
I only bought it initially for the eye shadows but I somehow cheated on them when I found myself falling in love with another item..I’ve never regretted the affair since *shy face*.
I still use and totally adore the rose petal powder blush because it gives a rosy tinge to my cheeks and brightens my entire complexion.

The season of love is here. You can smell it all around you. The hair is done, the body exfoliated and pampered to perfection and you think, “What look I’m I going to go for this year?” Are you going to be the Romantic Date or the Seductive Heartbreaker this year?
Even if you don’t have that special someone, you should still look fabulous on V-Day! Ideally, you want to look confident and alluring without looking too overdone. Valentine’s Day makeup should be sensuous, soft, sexy, and most of all, look effortless.
There’s always been a debate about the true colour for Valentine’s Day, whether its a soft girlie Pink or a Sensual Red; Well to us.. Red symbolizes love and passion so take this day to ignite some passion and fiery love by wearing the red lip. Yes the red lip!
