I didn't plan on doing a drag look but half way through 'playing' I decided too.....but even after all the crazy contouring etc I don't look drag enough! Next time maybe.....
ALSO it has been crazy hot and humid in Newcastle and it doesn't help that my bedroom currently has NO windows........ it's wrong that I'm sweating in my own room (sorry if it is TMI but it's currently hell) :(((((
1920's vibe? I got lazy with covering brows so I just drew a fine shape above my existing eyebrows
KEY PRODUCTS USED:
L'OREAL COLOUR INFALLIBLE - ALL NIGHT BLUE
MAC MIXING MEDIUM
FINE GOLD GLITTER
Hey guys, so my A/W make-up series begins. I've wanted to show you guys L'oreal's colour infallible eye shadow in- all night blue eye shadow since I got it.
I've only used A.N.B eyeshadow in this look and using the colour again I pressed it onto the lips. Then using MAC's mixing medium I created a paste with fine gold glitter and pressed it into the inner corners of the eyes. REMEMBER it's not about being precise, I kind like some of the particles spread all over.
I think this was my second day at my new 'home' and the funny arm position is to show my freshers pass which I'm still struggling to gain back my £55 worth of fun - everyone just eff's of to town anyway!
I HAD TO GET IT. It's around £17* but it's like a beetle on acid
More postcards to my collection because I'm sad....
I swear Newcastle WHSmith's is well better than the Leeds one. I've never seen them stock different Vogue's.. I think anyway. I'm kind of 'into' collecting just September Vogue's just because they have the most advertisements - which most people hate but I love. Not only does the Italian one have 3 magazines inside it was somehow £4 cheaper when I got to the till..... Obviously I didn't say anything haha
I forgot to bring my pillow, trainers and towels with me :(((( I bought these Vans Chukka boots to fill that comfy feet void
Hey guys, so I've officially moved to Newcastle! It's only been 5 days but It's almost like I've been here forever. Settled in and started my course on Monday. Already piled up with work to do but hopefully in the weekend I'll do more exploring besides stalking the city centre with my student discount card.
My first ever Chanel purchase.... I feel so grown up haha. Anyway I HAD to get one of these babies after stalking Temptalia's review/swatches of these. I've heard a lot of people describe them as gels but the box says cream-powder... a firm cream texture? I was undecided between Illusoire and Eptant but I'm such a fan of grunge-y colours I went with Illusoire. These retail at £22.50 but I think they are really worth it as the quality is amazing and they are FOOLPROOF! Glide on and blend easily.... EASY. I actually got mine for £15.50 as Debenhams was having a 10% offer and my beauty club card had £5.00 on....SCORE.
Anyway after my little make-up rave, I thought I'd do a little ramble since I've always documented any important changes in my life.
As you probably know I'm off to university very soon (16th)! I don't think it's quite dawned on me that I'm moving away yet as I've still got loads of packing to do!
I'm kind of excited but also quite chilled about it....since either way I'm stuck with my flat mates for a year and course-wise 3 years! I also don't think I share the same freshers mentality as most people as I'm not a massive-all-week-party-goer kind of girl. Yes. I said it. STUDENT SHAME! I don't know if any of you guys also feel the same but I feel spending A LOT of money on alcohol is such a waste!
Course wise which is obviously the main reason I'm moving up North *coff* I'm really excited about because I think I'll get one step closer to realising my dreams of getting a 'proper' job in a field I love. I hope I don't fall out of love with my subject area (I hear most people do) but we'll have to see!
Make-up wise.... L.F MAKE-UP will still be going on. I obviously can't bring everything I have to my new home and I'll have to see how my living arrangements are regarding lighting etc.
I'm hoping to make better contacts during my time at uni' and hopefully collaborate and participate in more projects- I need some models to play with!
As always my 'real life' world takes more of a priority over my 'side hobby' so I'm going to *try* and maintain a new post every week but I don't know what my timetable will be like.
Also depending on how my studies goes I *might* actually try and go for a make-up counter job but again I'll have to see if I think I can balance the two.
Anyway I'm going to wrap this ramble up! My friend S.K (and a really lovely supporter of the work I do) is coming this Wednesday as model, so you will get to see her transformation this week :)
ALSO random note but they are cousins to a famous X Factor winner!

Hey guys, so on Tuesday (3/09/11) I did E.H's make-up for her first wedding reception. I did the second one yesterday but will have to wait till after her honeymoon to recieve them. I am REALLY pleased with the results and like most things I seem to 'nail' things on the day rather then the trials... Which is a good thing haha. So I had no dilemas or anything on the day. I really enjoyed the experience and can say I've ticked doing wedding make-up off my list now.
