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.

A Few Of My Favourite Things From ELF

I have bought several items from ELF – Eyes Lips Face, an online makeup store, but my three favourite items that I think are really worth shouting about are: ELF Eyelid Primer (€1.70),  ELF High Definition Face Powder (€6.80), and ELF Professional Shine Eraser Sheets (€1.70).

ELF Eyelid Primer

ELF Eyelid primer costs €1.70, that’s right only €1.70 for 5ml which lasts for ages.  I got this by mistake, thinking I had ordered the ELF Mineral Eye Shadow Primer which is meant for use prior to applying mineral eye shadow but I liked the fact that the mineral Eye Shadow Primer has no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.  The mineral eyeshadow primer is €3.50. Having used both, I can say that they are just as effective as each other. Read the rest of this entry »

Shiny Happy People?

So I suffer a bit with some shine control issues (I’m always harping on about it!!!) and apparantly even the lovely Gwyneth Paltrow is not immune as she was photographed in New York in April this year at Good Housekeeping’s ‘Shine On’ awards – hilarious!!. There’s really no excuse, the majority of brands carry blotting sheets e.g. Bobbi Brown, MAC, Estee Lauder, Clinique etc.. and they range in price from about €4 to €8 or there abouts. I’m loving ELF (eyes lips face) professional shine eraser sheets, 50 sheets for €1.70, but stock up on other products as the delivery fee is about €4.50.  have some nice mineral blushers and their Hi-Def finishing powder is worth a look, a dupe for Makeup Forever Hi-Def powder – but that’s a different story!

So there you are on a night out and you’ve been dancing your booty off, flirting wildly thinking you look the bomb and Read the rest of this entry »
