If you didn't catch the look from this years Prada SS16 show Pat Macgrath legend of all legend makeup artists created this cool lip using her amazing Gold 001 a gold pigment from her hotly anticipated new makeup line that will be launching later in 2016. I was busy researching yesterday on Vogue.co.uk and came across the launch of the pigment but only 1000 would be sold this year at $40 so of course I had to get my hands on mine. Luckily I was successful so I will have to wait to get it but for all you makeup artists and makeup lovers you will be so excited to see what Gold 001 is all about.
I am obsessed with moisturiser and always have been because like my mum I have the Finnish dry legs that if I don't constantly apply look awful and there is nothing worse than dry legs. I have tried lots of fancy ones but I always come back to the budget brands like Nivea and Dove because they just do the trick. If you haven't tried the Nivea body cream range then you are seriously missing out.
I am always in a rush trying to get out in the week for a quick dinner with the hubbie or friends so I am always looking for easy ways to apply makeup and products that just work some magic. I love a smokey eye but unless its a Friday or Saturday night where I can take my time at my vanity table I need one product to create the smokey. If you haven't gotten your hands on the Clarins Ombre matt cream to powder eyeshadow then this really is the business for a quick smokey eye.
Since I hit my late thirties (almost 40) I have been obsessed with oils for my complexion firstly to put some hydration back into my skin and plump it up by the time I wake in the morning but also some life to my tired looking skin. Being a makeup artist, blogger and mum takes its toll on my skin and a lot of the time I need a lot of love. So when I first caught wind of the Kiehl's daily reviving concentrate at a launch a while back I have been paitently waiting to get my hands on one.
I am definitely a lover of all things fashion and the great thing with my job is that I get to do hair and makeup and be surrounded by fashion all day long. I recently did the hair and makeup for Thalia Strates look book shoot and I fell in love with her hand made hand bags on the spot. Thalia has brought out her latest collection of super cool bags that you can order to how you want and mix and match.
Its been a while since I have done a weekend post sharing what's new, my highlights and basically what I have been loving in the week. So here are 4 things from fashion to beauty that I love:
I can't quite get my head around that Christmas is around the corner and that 2016 isn't that far away and because next year I turn the big 40. As always Chanel bring us some gorgeous goodies for christmas to either spoil ourselves with or get someone else to spoil us. I got my hands on a couple items from the holiday collection Rouge Noir Absolutment to play around with plus a mini version of their cult perfume Chanel no 5.
This week I decided I desperatly needed to update my sportswear, I am not a fan of spending my cash on sports wear I am much more a shop till you drop on clothes kind of girl. However with H&M opening and their great prices I decided to spend some of my cash on some sport clothes.
Last year L'Oreal bought us the limited edition red lipsticks and this year its all about the pinks the L'Oreal La Vie en Rose collection for all complexions with the most beautiful brand ambassadors each with their own tailor made shade making it easier for us to choose the shade that will suit our complexion the best.
