Cher Lloyd Fragrance

I was invited a while back to attend the Cher Lloyd Fragrance launch which i couldn't attend but the loves over at FBbeauty sent me a bottle of the fragrance to try out!

Well as a thirty year old I'm not quite sure if its ok to say this but that I actually quite like it!! I have to say I had my reservations that it was another pop star launching a perfume and it would probably appeal to the teeny boppers....well I can now eat my words or class myself as a teen bopper (I don't mind either!)

The fragrance is bottled in a Diamond shaped fushia pink bottle (now we all know I love pink so I was sold pretty much straight away!)
The fragrance is sweet but not over the top, its combination of cassis, exotic Kiwi, white chocolate and vanilla to name just a few give a sweet, light and lasting scent.

At £15.00 for 30mls this is a great gift idea with Christmas on its way!

Have any of you tried Cher's fragrance? What did you think?

Stay Gorgeous

Make Up Monday - Halloween Make Up look

This past weekend saw lots of Halloween celebrations and I was amongst them!

I was doing Halloween Makeup at the Big Chill Bar in Bristol for a charity event they were running....not only were we making other people look positively ghoulish but it meant we had to dress up too! I wanted to go for something that was still pretty but a bit more out there so I donned a long red wig and vamped up my make up to match!

To go with my make up I added a scar that ran along my throat and down my chest for a bit of added Halloween effect! To get this effect I used a product called Rigid Collodion which make the skin tighten and indent creating a scar like area.

Here are my two Halloween make up video tutorials.....

Halloween Make Up Part 2 (Finished looked and scar effect)

You can also take a look at some of the make up I did at the event here

I hope you celebrated in style!

Fang - Tastic!!

As we all know Halloween celebrations will be at an all time high this weekend and many costumes will need some Fangs to complete the look!

I have some individual fangs that I used last year which is great but the glues has all dried up and I need them to stay put all night! Well some clever little sausage gave me a tip to use Fix-o-dent!
Yes, I know its for popping your dentures in but this is kind of the same?!

You can get fix-o-dent or a similar product from your local chemist for around £3.00 and it will keep you fangs in place for hours!

Fang-tastic eh?!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween Nails - Mummy Nails!

Here is my second Halloween Nail art design......its a Mummy design!

STEP ONE - Paint the nails with a white nail colour, I have used Alpine Snow from OPI but you can use any white varnish that you have.

 STEP TWO - Using a black nail art paint and striper brush paint the bandage detail, make sure you make one thicker line for where you will put the eyes.
 STEP THREE - Add the eyes! I have made bigger dots with white and then a smaller dot inside with red.

Thats its for this years Halloween Nails but there are more designs from last year for you to look at for more inspiration!

Happy Halloween.

Stay Gorgeous

Halloween Nails - Frankenstein!

As Halloween is a week away I thought I would do a couple of nail designs!

The first one is Frankenstein! And they are really cute....even if I do say so myself!

 Meet Frank!!
 STEP ONE - Paint your nails with a green nail colour, I have used one from OPI but any green will do.
 STEP TWO - Use a black varnish or nail art paint to create the hair along the tip of the nail.
 STEP THREE - Use a dotting tool to create the eyes, add a big dot of white and a smaller dot of black for the pupil.

STEP FOUR - Use a black nail art paint and a stripper brush to add the details of the mouth and eye brows!

This design is quite child like but its so cute that you could get away with it!! What do you think?

Stay Gorgeous

Bristol Fashion Week A/W 2012

Last Friday I was invited to attend Bristol Fashion Week. I have been to the show for the last couple of years and was part of the make up team for the spring summer show earlier this year!

I can be honest and say it was actually really nice just to be watching the show this time, and getting to watch some tasty male models strut their stuff on the catwalk is not really a hard job!!

As always the show was full of style musts and fashion essentials for autumn winter, and all the outfits and accessories had been picked from the huge choice of stores with in the Mall, Cribbs Causeway, so you could literally run from front row to the shops in a matter of seconds.....that is after you have collected your goodie bag of course!

Here are a few of my favourite pics from the show....
 Bucks Fizz and Mini Muffins....don't mind if I do!
 The beautiful south west bloggers!
 Mark Heyes and Andrew Barton entertained the crowd
 Heritage chic is a hot trend this winter
A Glam finale!

For  more pics check out my Facebook Page.

BFW is always a good event and a great way to spend a few girlie hours shopping and sipping bubbly! There is also a pamper zone for you to try out and get in a little me time!

Did you go? What was your favourite part?

Stay Gorgeous
