Christmas party makeup


2013-12-22 19.01.40 (1)

 Only three more sleeps until Christmas day, but four more until Stephen’s night…..

We all know how busy the nightclubs can get on the 26th so of course you’d want to look your best.  I’ll admit I’ve never been out on St.Stephen’s night (I know shame on me…. but I’m all about New Years!)

But for you party animals out there who want to look glam for the nights to come, here’s a simple look I’ve recreated with only three products:

Calvin Klein Tempting Glitter 21308 Sage Shimmer
Gold and black eye shadow by Fuschia
Black gel liner by Maybelline

  • After prepping the eyes, start by putting bronze eye shadow on your lids and slightly over your crease (not too high, we don’t want it ruining the eyebrows now do we…..)
  • Apply black gel liner on the lid ONLY – this will set a good base for the eye shadow and make it more prominent, (especially if your black eye shadow isn’t great)
  • Apply black eye shadow over the lid and blend  inside your crease
  • Use the gold eye shadow on your lower lash line – going three quarters of the way only- and then use the black on the outer lash line
  • Apply gel liner (or eye liner of your choice) on the water line

And there you are, five simple steps to achieve this glamorous look! I’m not a fan of false lashes, but when you wear black eye shadow, your real lashes will more than likely disappear,so a pair of falsies would be a perfect way of completing this look!

Maybelline GREAT LASH vs BareMinerals LASH DOMINATION

Beauty/ product review


If you read my first post on mascara (or eye lash growth for that matter), you would know that I’m big into thick and long eye lashes. So When I popped into BareMinerals to pick up a free sample of their LASH DOMINATION mascara I was chuffed, even though I had bought Maybelline mascara a few weeks beforehand!

I guess you can never had enough mascara in your makeup bag


I must admit, it was good thing I did pick up a sample of BareMinerals LASH DOMINATION,because if I hadn’t, I would be left with not so lengthening mascara.

Maybeline’s GREAT LASH mascara claims to have a precise lash building brush, but I honestly think that it really doesn’t give the same effect as the ”PROTWIST” 180 wand on LASH DOMINATION.

After only two coats of BareMinerals LASH DOMINATION I managed to get the desired effect.

   Bare Minerals LASH DOMINATIONAs you can see, BareMinerals LASH DOMINATION really    does add a lot of volume and colors to my eye lash here.    With only two coats, they looked fuller, darker and            longer and at only 20e, BareMineral LASH DOMINATION    offers a 10-in-1 lash benefits:

    1. Volume              6. Length

    2. Thickness        7.Mineral fortified

    3. Seperation           8. Smudge- free

    4. Lifts                       9. Clump-free

    5. All-day wear       10. Flake- free

Maybeline’s GREAT LASH on the other hand, does not  offer the same benefits!

In fact it doesn’t offer half of what LASH DOMINATION offers. I’m happy that I got a 30% discount on the day so it only came up to about  7 euros, but other than that this mascara only works for a daytime look, it just isn’t dramatic enough!

It’s not negative now, it does a great job at separating the lashes and making them look nice and healthy, but in terms of volume and thickness? This mascara was a miss for me!

Have you tried any of these two mascaras? If so feel free to share your thoughts below!
