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 – […]

Makeover: Sarah C – The Return

It’s Sunday, and, as always, that means it’s a makeover day Chez Lippie. Remember Sarah C? She had a pretty dramatic Theda Bara-style makeover last time, but she also wanted to learn how to use bright colours in a simple, and  subtle way.  We had a look through my entire eye-shadow collection – which took quite some time – and Sarah decided on MAC’s Humid, […]

NARS Skorpios and Pop Life Pencils

Mainly thanks to the gorgeous Lipstick Rules  I bought NARS Pop Life Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Liberty yesterday, and while I was there I very graciously allowed the Sales Assistant to convince me to hand over some hard earned cash for the Skorpios Soft Touch Shadow Pencil too … just kidding, the sales assistant was adorable, and very sweetly left me to my own […]

Makeover: Anna

Another Sunday, another makeover … please meet Anna: Anna came to me a couple of weeks ago, wanting to look more polished, and also to see how to create a smokey eye that would suit her beautiful grey-green eyes.  We decided on a neutral brown palette from Pixi to create the look around – I can’t read the name on the packaging anymore, sorry – […]

Makeover: Gillian

It’s Sunday, and that means it’s makeover day here at Get Lippie!  Meet Gillian: Gillian came to me a couple of weeks ago, wanting to look like a sexy 50’s bombshell.   Now, this is a look I happen to love, as it’s actually pretty simple and quick to put together.  First things first though, the classic bombshell look is dependent on flawless porcelain skin for […]

Makeover: Louise

This is Louise: Louise came to me wanting a classic “English Rose” look, as she wanted to look glowing, natural, and make the most of her beautiful blue eyes.  She has a make up bag full of steely greys, but after a chat, we thought something more apricot, and shimmery would be an excellent contrast. Louise has lovely skin – no pores! – and we […]

Makeover: Sarah C

Something a little different this week.  Meet Sarah: Today we’re replicating a makeup we designed for Sarah a couple of months ago for a fancy dress party, and my inspiration for the look was Theda Bara. As always, we start with the base: We’ve used a mixture of foundations to match Sarah’s skin tone, then powdered it down with a smattering of Benefit Bluffdust.  Then […]

Makeover: Sarah

I love doing makeovers, I love seeing the transformation you can make in someone’s deportment and demeanour just by giving them a little colour, even with a relatively simple transformation like this week’s: Meet Sarah: Sarah’s gorgeous.  I love her cheeky freckles, and she has beautiful grey-blue eyes.  Talking to Sarah before her makeover, she wanted a quick, simple, easy, and above all GLAM look […]

Holdover Makeover and Foundation Review

Okay, it’s a couple of days late, I apologise, but here’s the latest pics of the FotW I promised you on Thursday. First of all, the obligatory shot of me without makeup. I’m shiny, and my pores are ENORMOUS: It is also 6.30 in the morning, hence the simplicity of this make up, and my dopey expression. First things first, this complexion needs foundation, and […]

Face of the Week

I’m a very lazy person, and i appear to be addicted to routine at the moment, so whatever makeup I find myself wearing on a Monday is what I tend to find myself wearing for the next few days! Here’s the products I’ve been wearing this week, it’s very plain and simple, but quick, and pretty. Organic Surge Blissful Daily Moisturiser (which I’m trialling for a […]

Eye of the Day – Updated!

So, I decided that yesterday’s picture of my eyemakeup wasn’t the clearest, so I’ve redone it: And here it is with the Urban Decay eyeliner in Ecstasy more clearly visible: A cheery look for a Friday me thinks. Products used: MAC Paint – Untitled (as base) MAC Dovefeather in the inner corner by Terry Black Grape in the outer corner Urban Decay liquid liner in […]

The first […]
