Christmas Countdown – Bits and bobs

Continuing my Christmas gift guide, here are some other bits and bobs that I thought might make great gifts for people (including me!). First of all, one of the more prettily packaged palettes I’ve seen this season: Dior Minaudiere I actually bought one of these for my mum last week, having seen it on a variety of US blogs recently, but if you follow me […]

Elf High Definition Powder vs Urban Decay Razor Sharp Ultra Definition Finishing Powder

You can’t move at the moment for High Definition cosmetics. I’m not – entirely – convinced that for day-to-day wear you need cosmetics that provide coverage designed for such a specific purpose (essentially a High Definition cosmetic is one designed not to look dreadful for digital photography), but some of them do have their uses.

Anyway, this is Rebecca refusing to give me her best “Prisoner Cell Block H” […]

Meet Kerry: Kerry is really very pretty already, with enormous green eyes.  Sometimes Kerry thinks she looks a bit young (never an issue as far as I’m concerned!) so was looking […]

Makeover: Jane C

Another Sunday, and another makeover (or two) today!  Please meet Jane: Jane’s great, and I think she’s one of the most naturally gorgeous people I’ve ever met, so having her volunteer for a makeover was a lovely surprise!  Jane was interested in finding out a simple look suitable for daytime, and trying out a more dramatic look too.  Here’s what we came up with – […]
