Make Up

Make Up is so personal, it’s sometimes difficult to give advice. I personally love bright colours for summer even though I am blond, the brighter the better as its a pick me up during the beautiful warm weather.

Here are just a few examples of lip products that are perfect. Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquer in shades 60 Tease for a lovely natural look, Shade 64 Unreal for that caramel look & then shade 68 Sassy for that fabulous evening wear when you want to dazzle. I like the curved lip applicator made it so easy to apply. Its not sticky which is nice & found that the product is long lasting however fades slightly after a good few hours.


Loreal Lip Paint Matt, love that its matt in shades 202 King Pink a bright pink, shade 204 Red Actually & shade 205 Apocalypse Red. Usually matt lip products feel very dry, I find this product comfortable & at the same time long lasting. I find that the the shades are bold, although I did have to re-apply after eating. The colour selection is good & I found the product to be comfortable to wear.

Maybelline Master Blush is a wonderful palette of 4 shades, 3 blush colours & 1 highlighter, this is great for travelling & I like the packaging. I can only describe the product as weightless which blends easily. What I like is that you can build the colour & mix & max the shades. I really enjoy that the kit has a highlighter, its long lasting & is reasonable at the same time.

There is also a Master Bronze again in 4 shades 1 of which is a highlighter.  I almost feel like using this palette on my eyes as well, very tempting. Both kits has very good instructions on the back.

Iman is an amazing brand & so exciting that’s its available at selected Red Square’s now. Although Iman is most famous for their great selection of foundations, I love the Iman Eye-Con Collection it has 4 x trio eye shadows which are all wearable & I use all 4, a Brow Pencil in shade Blackish Brown & their fabulous Eye Pencil in shade Jet Black with a pencil sharpener on the lid. The collection has a great instruction card on exactly how to apply each eye trio palette.

Iman also do a nice Luxury Lip Shimmer, Moisturising Lipstick & an Amplify Mascara all in all an interesting brand to look at. The best is that they cater for all skin shades which so many brand don’t do & I suggest the you look at the foundation types & shades.
