Makeup of the day

Monday MOTD: Stoplight Eye ❤

Hi beauties. 🌞

So I’ve been super super busy this week,  where has it gone? Time just seems to fly these days!!! I hope you are all well & haven’t missed me too much 😉

Due to my lack of posts I’m going to make sure I get back into the routine & create a blogging schedule. Don’t worry I’m still here. 🙂

Anyway, since it’s Monday I’ll be doing a Monday Makeup of the day (this is going to be a weekly thing!) ❤

So the other night I had a couple of hours free, so I decided to create a makeup look of the ‘Spotlight Eye’ trend. I really liked how it turned out;  so here it is…

Eyes
I started off by cleansing my skin, Iused a new product, Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Face Mask (review coming on Friday!). I then moisturised my face. To let that sink into the skin I decided to do my eyes before skin. 🙂

To even the skin tone on my eyes I used a bit of concealer. To set that in place I used the lightest shade in my Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette (all shadows used are from this palette!). To create a transition through my crease I used a medium toned brown as my transition shade!!

image

To add more definition I just kept building the intensity of the medium toned brown all throughout the crease, even the inner part of the eye. Just make sure you leave the centre of the lid nice and bright! Hence the name, spotlight eye. 🙂

I decided I wanted to deepen the look further, so using the darkest matte shade in the palette I blended this through the crease from inner corner to outer corner.
Remember. Blend blend blend!!!!
To brighten the centre I reapplied the lightest shade and a small amount of the lightest shimmery shade. Keep this in the very centre for that strong focus on the eye!

Nails

Ruby Ribbon!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

This is going to be a quick post, I’m currently writing more posts to be scheduled for when I’m on holiday (a holiday update will be up on the day I go, 04/08/14!).

I’m one of those people who really doesn’t like feet, so mine seem to get neglected. Earlier I realised how horrible my toe nails have started to look! I just haven’t done much to them, eek! You know the look of faded, cracked, old nail polish, right? Well my toe nails have been suffering for a while, so I decided to give them a treat & paint them again.

As it is very hot & sunny here in the UK I went with a very bright pink & a sparkly polish over-top on my big toe!

The nail polishes I used were Revlon’s Ruby Ribbon & a Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine in Grapefruit. I LOOOOOOOOOOVE these two colours, the Ruby Ribbon looks surprisingly good over Grapefruit too 🙂

Que the horrible foot picture. Although I can say feet, well mine, look more appealing when the toe nails are painted!

There you go beauties, I hope you can get a decent idea of how these colours look. They are such gorgeous colours on the finger nails too, it’s just I can’t wear polish for my job so I tend not to bother!

Let me know if you like to know what I have on my toe/finger nails. Also Comment below what you have on your toe/finger nails 🙂

Thanks for reading beauties xo

Lots of Love Natasha ❤

Hair

Review: La Riche Directions!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

When I had pink dip-dyed hair I got comments on saying how nice it was & how much you beauties like it. So today I thought I’d share with you what I used & how I got pink dip-dyed hair! 🙂

wpid-20140701_170304.jpg

Before I get into this post I just want to say that the colour intensity obviously depends on the colour of your hair already. As I dye my hair a lighter blonde anyway I had a good light base for the colour to go on to. However, if you have darker hair you may have to bleach it before hand to get an intense colour pay-off!

La Riche Directions Hair Colour is a semi-perminant hair dye, it comes in 34 shades which can also be mixed, so there’s a colour to suit EVERYONE 😀 The hair colour I chose was ‘Carnation Pink’, it is a muted pink colour, which does fade well as it becomes more of a candyfloss pink.

Although this is a semi-perminant hair colour it did last very well in my hair, it probably stayed quite an intense colour for a couple of weeks before fading. Saying this though, I only was my hair 2-3 times a week. So if you’re someone who washes their hair everyday it’s obviously going to fade a lot quicker.

How to apply

I hold my hands up, the first time I had it done was by my twin sister’s friend at uni. So when I re-dyed my hair a month or so later with the same pink I just followed her method of doing it. This is how she achieved the dip-dyed look…

  1. Brush through the hair well so there’s no knots.
  2. Seperate the hair into two down the centre & tie a bobble at the point you want your dip-dye to start. Make sure the bobbles are even as this is the guide to wear you’ll apply the colour.
  3. Ensure the loose bits of hair are knot free & liberally apply the hair dye so each & every piece of the loose hair (below the bobble) is covered in dye.
  4. Then leave the colour on the hair for about 30 minutes. This ensures enough time for the product to adhere to the hair, the colour I used sort of stained my hair as it still hasn’t fully come out after a few months.
  5. Once 30 mins is up wash out the colour. I found it best to rinse the majority of the colour out by sticking the pigtail under the tap. Once the majority of the colour is out hop into the shower & rinse until the colour in the water becomes less & less. It may not become totally clear but that’s because its semi-perminant so you’ll most likely see a bit of colour in the water the next few times you wash your hair.
  6. Lastly, dry your hair (blow-dry or air dry totally up to you) & enjoy your new style 🙂

This was after I had dyed my hair first time. As you can see it’s very bright, but how cool did it look? I LOVED IT 🙂

By the way, I didn’t purchase my hair dye from the website as you have to buy it by the box & I only wanted one tub. I bought mine from eBay, just type ‘La Riche Directions hair colour’ into the search bar & a ton of different colours will appear – also it is so much cheaper from eBay.

I hope this post has helped to shed a bit of light on how I got my pink dip-dyed hair. If you have any further questions please ask, I’ll try answer them as best as I can 🙂

Have a lovely day beauties xo

Makeup of the day

MOTD: Orange Lips Trend!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

Aren’t you a lucky bunch today? Two posts in one day…
I really liked how my makeup came out today so I thought I’d share it with you all 🙂

image

I’ve really been LOVING the orange lip trend, here I’m pictured wearing the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Audacious. It’s such a beautiful colour & compliments this eye look beautifully 🙂

For the eyes I used Maybellines Diamond Glow Quad in Coral Drama!! Don’t you just love these colours? I used the peachy orange shade all over the lids & the pink in the crease for definition 🙂
