Ombre Lipstick | Makeup Tutorial

Hello! I love to experiment with different makeup looks and one that I've been loving lately is the ombre lip look. Two different shades of lip colour blended together to create a pretty gradient effect that also, when done correctly, can make your lips look fuller and more luscious (because even though we may all be over the Kylie Jenner hype/hysteria we can admit that, when it comes to lips, bigger is better!). 


The trick behind this look is that by making the centre of your lips lighter, from a distance it appears that the light is reflecting off that area most suggesting that it is fuller and more pronounced (much like good old face highlighting, clever eh?). Here is a step-by-step on how to create the look. P.S: it's super easy and, as always, I have a few cheats too ;) let's go! -->>

Flashback Friday: My Birthday!

Hey, so last Friday was my 24th birthday - woohoo!! Before I get into the inevitable shopping haul posts (hint: they possibly might perhaps include some Chanel, Mac and Aldo), I just thought I'd give you a rundown of the day as it was so enjoyable.


The evening before my birthday my mum came round to drop off my birthday card and gift along with these amazing '24' helium balloons (I will NEVER be too old for helium balloons! Well... ask me again in a few years, but for now - love them!!) and a million double chocolate muffins topped with, get this, gold leaf! Gold leaf and gold sprinkles. They were honestly so pretty in person they almost looked too good to eat. Almost... So I woke on the morning of my birthday, after a much appreciated lie-in to find that my beautiful boyfriend had arranged all of my cards and gifts on a table in the middle of the living room along with a gorgeous pink GIANT CUPCAKE madeira cake (and we all know from this post how much I like cake) and an extra gift bag (wink wink).
