Decided to play around with my new Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Color pigment that I received from the wonderful David Klasfeld. Everyone talks about OCC’s liptars but y’all should not sleep on their loose pigments!!! They have a lot of unique shimmers that are finely milled, smooth and highly pigmented and they have quite a few matte pigments. The colour of the day is Wasabi – a midtone yellow-green with gold shimmer. This looks just like wasabi, just like it!

Here’s my final installment of ‘So you want to wear makeup…‘, your basic, beginner’s guide to makeup. Lip products are probably the first makeup items that young girls begin wearing. Easy to use, inexpensive and you feel like you are wearing something, even if it’s a colourless product.
I was inspired by beetle’s wings and decided to do a blue iridescent look. It’s a little bright, with the light, shimmery teal and a little smokey. Good for a summer night out, and black mascara completes the look!!!
Another installment of my series. Today’s focus is on the cheeks.

I must admit that this is an area that I have only recently gotten into. I’m all about the eyes but I have come to realize that the right cheek colour and application could take a look to another level!!!
Again, there are many different formulations for cheek colours and these include:
Powder (the most popular)
Creams (my new favourite!)
So there is something there for everyone, you just need to find something that suits you.
There are a few things to take into consideration when selecting your cheek colour and formula:
So eyes are my favourite part of my face to make up. There are so many possibilities, colour combinations, textures etc. But for those that are beginners, or those who don’t have a lot of time, just a few simple steps could give you a polished look.
Before I get into eyes, I have to speak of the eyebrows. Your eyebrows are absolutely important as they frame the eyes and the face. It’s one of the first places that people see. Many people have their brows shaped via threading, waxing or tweezing but really and truly, combing your eyebrows will make them look groomed. This is where a spoolie or eyebrow comb comes in handy. I think the metal brow combs are the way to go! The plastic ones break every 5 mins! Also get a shape that suits the way the hair grows, eye shape etc. Overly plucked brows are a no-no!
