Golden Days Now Autumns Here! Simple Eye Shadow Looks Using Gold

I’m really loving gold recently so much so I feel like standing up and saying ‘Hi, I’m Fiona, and I have a gold make up problem’.  I buy it, and look at it like Golum and his infamous ring, feeling it’s too precious to use or I won’t have the occasion to wear it.

So in response to Aine who took part in my MAC Golden Gaze give away, and asked me to do some gold eyeshadow looks using Golden Gaze, I thought I would show some looks using others golds instead, just in case you don’t get your hands on the lovely Golden Gaze.

Gold to me is usually an occasion colour but I really wanted to do a day time look with them, something really simple, quick to do, and easy to wear.  I’d love to have had a young model to work on to do these, as the quality of my eyelid skin is not great for shimmery eyeshadows, that’s age for you!!  I did a Gold and Green and a Gold and Pink eye shadow look.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley

I’m absolutely wild verging on becoming obsessed about the berry red lipstick that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley had on at the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards in LA on 4th June 2011.  It’s so beautiful, I’d love, no change that to need to know what it is?

In my nosing around the internet to see if anyone knew what lippie Rosie was sporting, I happened across Clinique colour surge butter shine lipstick.  Is that what Rosie was wearing?  Well – No!  But I was fascinated by these lipsticks as they are part of a range of lipsticks from Clinique that are supposed to make your teeth look whiter – nice!  Take a look at the video on the Clinique website, it’s a really interesting concept and you know it’s got to be far better for your teeth than using teeth whitening products.  Cliniques colour surge lipsticks retail in Ireland for €19. I will have to get me some, was thinking Berry Blush might be a close match to Rosies?

Any suggestions or ideas on what lippie the lovely Rosie was wearing??

New Maybelline Gel Eyeliner Review

From the outset I have to say that I was really impressed with this product.  I usually use Clinique’s gel eyeliner and I found that Maybelline’s gel eyeliner compares very well to it.  In fact I’d say it’s a tiny bit better!  (opps can’t believe I just said that!!)

Aisling from on TV3’s Xposé compared it to Bobbi Brown’s gel eyeliner and was impressed by this product, so that’s gotta be a good thing!

In my opinion Maybelline’s gel eyeliner is a great little product at a great price of €11.99 and comes with a really nice little brush that is full sized (unlike Clinique that give you a dolly sized brush!)  So how does it compare to my usual fav Clinique?  Read the rest of this entry »
