Seriously the weeks just keep flying by and its almost the end of April with my 39th birthday around the corner. As always each week I pack in all my highlights into one post to share with you:
1) For the first time I did a fashion post early this week. Its something I have been meaning to do for a while and now its official each week I will share a look from my wardrobe just to add a little something extra to my blog. Niquita Bento photographer and blogger took my pics and will be shooting me each week so I hope you enjoy.
2) This week I went on a road trip with the Elle magazine girls to Knysna and we shot an incredible fashion story with the incredible Nykor a Sudanese model. The look I created was a wintery one so that it would match the clothes and the surroundings. For the eyes I used Mac fluidline black track on the lids, groomed brows with Clarins be long mascara, for the skin I prepped with Dermalogica skincare and then applied Mac matchmaster in no 10. I contoured using Bobbi Brown espresso eyeshadow, a added a hint of berry to the cheeks and for the lips I used Mac matt smoked purple lipstick.
3) I love makeup drops and I love being a blogger as it allows me to get my hands on amazing makeup that I can use on shoots and really put them to the test. This week Smashbox dropped some of their new products hitting counters next month like the matt lipsticks, an amazing bronzer and cheek and lip tints watch this space for my full reviews.
4) This weeks video I wanted to share was from UK beauty blog getthegloss.com and its celebrity makeup artist Liz Pugh showing us how to create a soft smokey eye using the Naked 3 palette which will be on ruby box soon. Its a pretty easy to create smokey eye perfect for a night out or even a look for work. Love
Hope you all had an amazing look.
