7 days of christmas MOTD. Day 1 Jordana Grape

Afternoon beautiful ladies!

It’s only 7 days till christmas day so I will be doing 7 different makeup looks to give you some ideas and inspire some looks for your festive season. These will include looks for both the Northern and Southern hemisphere as not everyone gets to enjoy this amazing weather we have here in NZ right now (and if you follow me you will know i’m a sucker for bold, darker tones)

As you know I like to feature both “drug store” and higher end products as not everyone has the bank balance to afford products such a MAC, Benefit, YSL etc and cheaper brands can look just as good. Continuing on from my latest Jordana post I went and purchased Jordana”Grape” (yes another dark lippy :P) but I couldn’t resist, and $4 NZD for a lippy is insane! It smells incredible! I feel like actually eating my lips right now. It is not the Matte Jordana lipstick but on my lips it certainly feels like it without the dryness. It has a very smooth application and is a purple tone compared to the red cherry tones I normally go for. 

Other products used. Jordana Grape lipstick, Elf Brow Kit Medium, The Balm Marylou Manizer highligher, Revlon Colourstay Foundation, The Balm Cabana Boy, Dior Mascara, Jordana Liquid Eyeliner, NYX HD photo ready primer, Maybelline Dream Terra Bronzer, Sleek Au Naturel Palette.

Summer Pink Ft. Too Faced Lip Colour Bomb

Hey ladies (& gents if any lovely boys read this :p)

Sorry for the delay in posts, I have now finished my Criminology degree hehe! Bring on summer tans, cocktails and festivals. Watch this space as I will be doing a few xmas, festival and NYR looks for you all. !

I purchased the Too Faced Lip Colour Bomb in “Never enough nude” (the lighest shade they produce)- link below, as I saw it on Shaaanxo and had to have it! I love a full, lucious lip and this certainly does the trick! For the first 5-10 there is a slight spicy burning sensation, but nothing you couldn’t handle. You can literally see your lips plump up before your eyes. I chose the nude colour because you can wear it over any other lip colour while having those juicy Angelina Jolie lips which any women wants, lets face it. 

For this makeup look I wanted to pair the lip with a soft pinky/gold tinge eyeshadow with a pink warm blush (Mac Melba) and highlight ( The Balm Marylou Manizer) For summer I personally love this look, especially for the day time but still has a slight bit of glam to it.
