Winged Eyeliner ?

So many people wear the winged eyeliner look which I think looks amazing, however it isn't something I do myself. However today I went through my makeup bag and found my Topshop liquid eyeliner and thought why not try the winged eye look. So here it is....

I do like the look, however i need to practice doing it a few times. The Topshop eyeliner was really easy to work with and doesn't smudge. 

Let me know what you think

Tag - How Much Is Your Face Worth ?

I recently saw this tag on 'see it love it swatch it' blog, and I thought it was really interesting so decided to do the tag myself.  If you haven't seen the tag before it is basically where you add up all of the makeup products that you use when you are doing your makeup and work out how much it costs.
So here it is ..... 

Face - 
Rimmel lasting finish 25 hour foundation - £6.99
Collection 2000 lasting finish concealer - £4.19
Max Factor Pan stick - £6.99
Rimmel Clear Complexion clarifying powder - £3.99

Cheeks - 
Mac mineralize skin finish (bronzer) - £21.00
Mac blusher (pinch of peach) - £18.00

Eyebrows - 
Gosh brow gel - £4.99

Eyes - 
Urban decay Naked palette - £36.00
Maybelline colossal volume express mascara - £7.19

Lips - 
Revlon lipstick - 460 Blushing Mauve  - £7.49
Elf conditioning lip balm -  £2.99

Finish -
Elf mist and set spray - £3.00

Total - £122.82

The total isn't as bad as I thought it would be, I use a few expensive products but then I balance it out by using some cheaper products. Let me know what you think, and if you have done this tag link it below:)

Nicki Minaj is one of those stars who isn't afraid to wear what they want. Her style is so different but that is what in my opinion makes her so interesting. I was flicking through my October issue of Elle and saw this advertisement. 

I was so excited to see Nicki Minaj has a little collection at Mac, I have yet to try out a Mac lipstick however this new shade from her collection definitely makes me want to go and buy one. 

 I think the shade is gorgeous and would be great for a day time look. Has anyone else tried this or any other Mac lipsticks ?

Fashion Drawings...

On my course at university we do a lot of drawing, my drawings aren't amazing and I am still practicing the basics and getting my proportions right. I love looking at fashion illustrations and seeing how the style of each illustration varies. I am still finding my own style and for now my drawings will remain in my sketchbook, but I thought it might interesting to do a few blog posts about some of my favourite fashion illustrators.

For now here a couple of doodles from my scrap book.

Do any of you have a favourite illustrators or create your own fashion illustrations ?

TREND ALERT! - The Cutout Boot

I was browsing through Topshops website today when I came across these amazing boots!

I think they are great for winter, I would style them with a simple dress and tights because I think the boots would make the outfit a bit more edgy. 

These will definitely be on my wishlist

What do you think, how would you style them ?

Product Review - Estee Lauder Spotlight

I'm not one to purchase expensive skincare products, I stay away from the high end brands and head down to Superdrug or Boots instead. However when my nan kindly gave me this Estee Lauder spotlight cream I was more than happy to try it out. I used it on top of my moisturizer and hated it. I felt like it didn't benefit my skin at all, however it does have a illuminating quality to it so I decided to try it again, but this time I mixed it with my foundation. Ever since then this has been my go to product. I only use it on my cheeks but it makes my skin glow and gives the skin a nice dewy finish which I think looks really beautiful. 

At around £27.00 a bottle it isn't exactly cheap, but I do think if you have the money and want to refresh your makeup look then I would definitely recommend this. 

Has anyone else tried this or something similar ?

Henry Holland has always been one of my favourite designers. I love how bold his designs are, and he creates so many unique outfits. Although I don't own any of his clothes, I love seeing his new collections.

These are my favourite pieces from the collection, I think the way they have been styled is great. It really suits autumn/winter yet still has the signature bold colours that House Of Holland is known for. 

These iPhone cases are really cool, I think they are great for someone who wants to have a piece of the House Of Holland style but is on a budget.

Henry Holland also has a collection available in Debenhams which is called H! By Henry Holland. This is more accessible for people wanting the style but at a high street price. I think these satchels are amazing. They would brighten up any outfit and satchels are a big trend at the moment. 

Does anyone else love Henry Hollands collections ?
