The Makeup Change Up

Recently I have been doing my makeup a little differently. I have been using a new blush that I´m obsessed with, the Mac Mineralize Blush in Love Joy,its a bronzey shade with gold shimmer.It´s beautiful it just adds a bronzey glow to your skin, sometimes I wear it on top of bronzer and others by it self. For me it´s a change from my peach blushes, and since I bought I can´t stop using it!
Another recent addition to my collection is the Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Isola Bella, it´s a peachy nude, which I normally stay away from, but after seeing Tijan using it on a video I was sold and bought it even thought I was afraid that I wasn´t going to be able to pull it off, but when I first put in on my lips Surprise Surprise I actually liked it and have been using it quite often.
Sometimes is good to have a makeup change up,to every once in awhile to try something a little different but don´t expect to see me in a green eyeshadow anytime soon....

Bobbi Brown Mini Haul

Every time I go to Spain, one of counters I always get excited to check is Bobbi Brown. I always find impossible to leave without purchasing anything.
I have had my eye on the Eye Blender brush for a while now, and this time I bought it, and boy I´m I glad I did! It just makes your eyeshadow look flawless, its just so fuss free.
And yes I bought another palette the Smokey Nudes Eye Palette, I know I have a problem!I think we established that by now! I blame Tijan, when I saw her using this palette in a video I knew it had to be mine. Also a Tijan inspired purchase is the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow in Beach Bronze 16.
Iam definitely having a Bobbi Brown moment and I already have a few more things in my Wish List....

September Favourites

I know it´s late for September Favourites and I only have a few, but I though I would share them with you anyway.
I still use a lot of the same things mentioned in previous months, but I have a few new products that I have been enjoying using. Enter the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette, review here, I used it everyday since the day I got it! I Love it!
In September I started using blush again, and I have been loving Mac Gingerly, it´s just such a lovely  peach colour. And finally for lips I have been lining my lips with Mac Dervish Lip Liner and for  lipstick I have been using Burberry Lip Cover in Blush No.09, because it´s a much darker pink then I´m used to I put it on and then blend it in, it just gives a natural your lips but better colour.

What did you love in the month of September?

SS15 Beauty Edit


Emilio Pucci

Dolce & Gabbana
Dolce & Gabbana

For SS15 Beauty, the skin was kept very natural, dewy and beautifully highlighted. There wasn´t a lot going on in the eyes. The makeup was fairly natural, but what what changed from show to show were the lips. Some opted for a natural lip, while other went for a bold one. There were some berry and red lips going on! Which is a change from what we are used to see for Summer, I definitely don´t wear a berry or dark red lip in the Summer, but it looked amazing!
These were my favourite looks, but my top 2 were from Burberry and Dolce & Gabbana.

The only show I actually know what was used was the Burberry show. Here´s the details!
They started with the Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Golden Radiance No.02 to give a glow to the skin.
For the base they used a mix of the Burberry Glow BB Cream and the Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation. The concealer used was the Burberry Sheer Concealer.
For blush the Burberry Light Glow Blusher in Earthly No.07, which it was used also as a sheer wash of colour on the eyes as eyeshadow. One of the particularities of this look, was that they didn't used any mascara, to keep the look more modern. I love mascara, so don´t know if I´m going to embrace this look, we´ll see.
To keep the eyebrows in place it was used the Burberry Effortless Eyebrow Definer.
And finally the focus point of makeup, the lips, the lipstick used was the Burberry Lip Cover in Ruby No.18.

What were your favourite Beauty looks? Will you embrace the no mascara look?

Fashion week has ended, and as usual I always post my favourites looks and shows.
I was quite surprised to see a a lot of dark colours, a lot of black. In some shows I though are these the AW collections? No these are Spring/Summer collections! But I wear black all year round so theres not much I can say about that. 
My favourite shows, If I had to pick a Top 3 definitely would be: Dolce & Gabbana, there´s no surprised there, I love it! It´s feminine, sexy, it always reminds of the italian screen sirens, what can I say I love Dolce & Gabbana!  Etro, love the boho vibe it had and Elie Saab it was so feminine.
