Pink Eyeshadow ~ Girly Barbie Doll Look

One of my favourite make-up looks has always been vivid, neon eyeshadow.  Bright blues, pinks, yellows and greens are a must have in my make-up bag, but unfortunately these aren't daily 'looks'.  If you're having a girly moment, here is how to wear pink eyeshadow in a super girly make-up look, but for every day.
Your must-haves are these eyeshadows by Barry M
Three wonderful shades of pink in (starting from the top) 85, 58 and 3.
  • Firstly, start off by sweeping Barry M Dazzle Dust in no.3 over your eyelids.  This is a very light pinky brown shade and will act well as the base colour.
  • Sweep Barry M Dazzle Dust in no.58 into the crease.  With its slightly more pigmented colour, this will add definition into the pink.
  • Finally, blot Barry M Dazzle Dust in no.85 at the outer corners of your eyes, as well into the crease.  This last pink shade is incredibly bright, so if you want a more intense look, go over your eyes once more.
I decided to go for a sublte pink, which can be worn day to day.
Extra tools you might need -
  • Mac lipstick in Viva Glam Nicki
  • Bobbi Brown Blusher in Peony
  • Benefit Highlighter in High Beam
  • Nars Tinted Moisturiser in Finland
  • Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara

Lipstick Queen - Dancing Queen Set

School is out.  Well, work is out, and to celebrate the new found freedom for the next week and a half, I took my weekly trip to Space NK for a look around at their festive treats.  Like most of us, I've more than spent my Christmas budget, so wasn't too excited when I saw the new Lipstick Queen set sparkling like the ultimate Christmas treat right in front of me.  There's nothing to get you down like the empty pocket feeling on the most excisting time of the year.
Lucky for me, my boyfriend stepped in, and a true knight in shining armour, he even let me have this before Christmas Day. 
The trio definitely live up to their expectations.  Like most lipstick lovers would know, Lipstick Queen has established a great base with stunning lipsticks with personality.  The Dancing Queens are exactly that.  A delicious threesome of seduction, playfulness and tempation.  It truly must be party season.
You have:
Cha Cha ~ glossy, sparkly wine
Electric Slide ~ glistening, sultry red
The Hustle ~ glimmering, understated nude
If you're thinking of spending any money, make sure it's on this.  It's every lipstick lover's ideal party date.
