Pay Day Wishlist!

Hello loves! 🙂

I know payday has only just come and gone, but I’m so bad, I’m already thinking up my beauty wishlist for next payday!
Here’s what I can’t stop thinking about so far!

L’oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara £10.99

I’ve seen so many YouTube videos and beauty bloggers raving about this recently that I just have to get it and see if it’s really worth all the fuss!

Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre £18.50

I’ve tried a couple of products before from this gorgeous French skincare brand which I’ve loved but I really want to get my hands on this skin-plumping, hydrating moisturiser that also doubles up as a primer!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Brow Palette £33.87

As a working Make-Up Artist, this looks like a must have in my kit!

Obssessive Compulsive Cosmetics LipTar Matte £11.09

My most wanted shade is Digitalis, a pale pinky-lavender and 100% vegan and cruelty free, what’s not to love?!

Sugarpill ‘Saint’ False Lashes £4.31

The perfect lashes for that doe-eyed, flirty look, just gorgeous!

What do you think ladies, have you tried any of these products? Let me know, I always like to read your comments and get some feedback 🙂

Halloween at Illamasqua

It’s almost that time of year again! This is my favourite holiday because every make-up artist I know goes crazy (including myself!) uploading pictures of their creative faces, it’s the ideal time to play with make up and there are endless looks to create.

Again this year, Illamasqua have brought us an amazing Halloween collection along with some face charts to give that extra little bit of inspiration! Check it out..

I can’t wait to get my hands on those Bat Lashes, they look AMAZING! You can also pick up the Bat Lash Duo, which contains the lashes and the gorgeous new nail varnish in Swarm, for a bargain of £25!

Here are the stunning face charts..

Ruby Snow
Madame Prudence
Lady Raven
Zerlindah

Who will you be this Halloween?

Mini Haul!

Hello lovelies! 🙂

So, it’s nearing the end of the month as pay day still seems SO far away and I was having some major beauty cravings so I just decided to be naughty and I spent my very last few dolla on some beauty goodies!
Here’s what I got..

20130926-161651.jpg
First up there’s some lashes from Collection. I do love a good pair of falsies so I picked the Luscious Lashes in Glam Volume (£2.99, Superdrug).

20130926-161854.jpg
I also picked up a black kohl liner from MUA which was only something like £1.50, I hate spending ridiculous money on stuff like that because the cheap ones are usually just as good. I really like this one because it’s lovely and creamy, and it comes with a handy little sharpener on the lid!

20130926-162214.jpg
I also picked up a little pair of press on nails from Primark, I really like these because they’re super handy just to wear for a couple of days, especially if you have an event or night out!

20130926-162416.jpg
Now, this is my favourite purchase of the day! I’m super excited to get playing with it, it’s one of the three new Shadow & Blush Palettes from Barry M!
I got the Smokin’ Hot version but you can also get the Natural Glow version, which reminds me of the Naked palette a bit, all neutral colours with a lovely light pink blush, and the Glamour Puss palette which has a STUNNING hot pink blush and is definitely next on my Wishlist!

I’m really excited to play with this and get creating some gorgeous smokey eye looks, greys and blacks are some of my favourite colours to bring some drama into a look and they never, ever go out of style. The shadows and blush have a lovely, velvety texture to them and I was really pleasantly surprised at the pigmentation, they have some amazing colour to them! Check them out below 🙂 (unfortunately it doesn’t state the names of the colours on the case, which is disappointing as I like to know the shade if I ever need to replace it but that is my only complaint so far!)
Hope you like..

Let me know what you think, have you tried any of these palettes yet?

The Saturday Haul!

Hello my lovelies!

I was a little bad today and went to do some shopping.. And I just thought I’d share what I got with all of you 🙂
20130831-161020.jpg
First up, I bought the MakeUp is Art book by the Academy of Freelance Makeup. I’ve had my eye on this book for a while now, there’s some stunning work in it by some of my favourite artists (ill do a more in depth post on it after I’ve had a chance to read it!) and some great tips if your looking into starting a career in the industry. Inside the cover its priced at £25 but I picked it up I’m Urban Outfitters for £15, bargain! 🙂

I also picked up a few goodies out of Sally’s Salon Services that I needed as I’m heading out this evening 🙂
I got some of the Little Mix press on nails, now as a qualified nail tech, I rarely wear stick on nails, but I thought these looked quite cute and I didn’t have time to do a full set myself so I thought I’d give them a go 🙂 I picked up Jesy’s set as I thought they were quite edgy and very me! They’re covered in spikes and studs and are just gorgeous, Ill post a pic later when I have them on!
I also got some Kirby hair grips, as I’m FOREVER losing these, you can literally never have enough of these babies. A Spornette back combing brush which I’ve been needing for AGES, and this one is called the Little Wonder #735115, and finally some Salon System lashes. I love these lashes as they have great staying power and they really last if you look after them. I usually go for the more natural look but I thought I’d go for something different and try the full volume BohoLash!

Love & Lipsick,
Tammy xoxo
