Well it might be Gail force 1 , but we’ve changed the clocks,  there for its actually spring.

image

Currently the weather is proving to be difficult,  but I’m aiming to be positive and thought let’s talk,
Spring clean make up.

Now I don’t mean throwing out Tut.
It’s adding a clean fresh look to you’re routine,  a few must have items to freshen your look up, a few of my favourites, that are Easy and give great results.

The quickest way to bring colour / life to the skin , is a lip colour
Whether it be a Lippie,  gloss or hybrid.

Bourjois recently launched
#aqualaque
And I’ve worn it daily, alone or over a lipstick.
The product has several shades to pick from, and is hydrating with great colour pay off

Some times a very simple eye look can be super chic and fresh,  using a lash curler and a growth serum such as
Lilash
Helps to condition the lashes,  there for they grow,  longer and fuller.
Then a amazing mascara and your good to go

My high street budget one is
W7

Eye brighting is important,  as it’s youthful and adds life to tired eyes.
I’m fully obsessed by
Pixi by Petra
” eye zone brightener”

Pearlescent look awakens the eye area, I also use down the centre of nose , and the top of cheek bones.

It gives a subtle highlight and healthy glow,  works on many skin tones,  awesome for us Pale Pals, as not a heavy gold.

Blush it
Now we’re not all lucky enough to be told a filthy joke, just before a Selfie or Pap pic.
So cheat a flush,  with a fantastic oil balm
From Bare minerals
Ok forgive me
( not launched till June,  so worth the wait)

image

3 shades will be available,  this Papaya passion.
I think will work with a great mix in of skin colours.

Coraly build- able tone, adds a flush of Oil balm
Lasts well and is easy to blend.

I will be writing more about whom attended for my coloumn in Scoope Magazine , so be sure to check it out


So those who know me, will understand my obsession with lips, when i was younger i would always draw them,  and eyebrows but that’s another story.

I’ve had lip fillers on occasion, i have videoed and written about that.

But this about the new launches of lip ranges, from lipsticks to glosses to the new hybrids.

Yesterday I attended with bestie Lydia Lucy  (X-factor) a few amazing beauty events, I’m also going to add in a few of my favourite lip products.

PREP
super important to have your lips in good condition,  so love the Lush Cosmetics lip scrub,  gentle but removes the dry/chapped effect, leaving the lips ready for a Lip balm. I personally love to use the Rodial stem -cell lipbalm.
@rodial

Once that’s settled in, your ready for colour.
i like to line my lips (Mostly the top,To add volume) i Pretty Much use the NO7 Nude lippencil(available at Boots . It’s natural and i can faux a fuller lip, even with using darker colours it works, unless blood red or very deep, then i would use the Gosh red to match the lipstick.

The super star beatles,  are known all over the world for their music, lifestyles and amazing history.

I was very excited too attend
The  “let it be” musical
#tweetandshout
@letitbeliveuk

http://letitbelive.com

Held at the garrick theatre
On arrival the 4piece (very good lookalikes) were ramming on the balcony,  having the street at a stand still,  while people stopped to watch, and some even dance.

Papped as i was going in, the very charming PR handed Olivia and i ,our tickets.
Now i really must say thank you,  i kid you not, Thee best seats, central to the stage,  so we had a fantastic view,  room for my legs and no neckache,for 2hours or so, good to be comfortable.
But during we were up dancing and singing away.

What i found super fun,  was the fact  the audience could, instagram, tweet and be socially active,  not normally done at the theatre,  i thought it was a fabulous idea,i had mu social feeds full, and it got a great buzz going in the theatre and twitter.
see the Hashtag Above and Check Out What Happened.
I fully recommend attending, there is no way , you’ll leave without the songs running through your brain and a huge smile on your face.

My insanely amazing view of the stage, using vintage style TV’s and a radio, to show /play actual footage of the band,their trips and news footage.

The story over years, played very cleverly,  the stage fittings complimented the story so well.
The boys were so amazing, superb voices and very factual of the characteristics of the 4 actual band members.
