craving: wedge trainers

26 June 2013

Since the wedge heeled trainers were launched into the high street shops I have seen them as something of a garish shoe that I would never love or even want, but it's been a kind of love hate relationship really. The pvc and metallics to me are quite grotesque - i'm not going to lie, you will not see me sporting those. However, Ash do some lovely simple pairs and I really like the neon trim wedge trainers from zalando. So it's time to face a fear I think .. help me pick a pair?

my must haves: benefit big beautiful eyes

14 June 2013

During my first Benefit makeover the artist used this big beautiful eyes palette and I bought it there and then. I'm not really sure why I haven't shouted about it on here yet because we're talking a good few years ago that I first purchased this palette and i've repurchased it twice since. The big beautiful eyes palette has a light pink eyeshadow for highlight, light brown eyeshadow base and darker brown eyeshadow for liner or outer corners, some boing concealer, a mini double end eyeshadow / liner brush and a mini concealer brush. I keep this compact little travel palette in my handbag most of the time and use it to refresh my eye makeup through out the day. Even when I haven't used these eye shadows in my original look they all blend well with my favourite shades from urban decay naked 2 and sleek natural palette - but much easier to carry around than those two.
