Illamasqua Monogamous

Illamasqua Monogamous is a rubber effect nude nail varnish, it’s perfect for creating “mannequin hands”!

I love the rubber effect, it looks so soft, tactile and unusual ^_^ I used Illamasqua Matte top coat to protect it and it didn’t affect the rubber look and helped the colour last.

I found the varnish lasted well for a week with minimal tip wear and no chips!

Have you tried the mannequin hands look?

My Hallowe’en effort!

This year we had a little party for my 3 nephews for Hallowe’en. My elder sister came down with her boys and we all went to my younger sister’s house, it was so much fun to have everyone together!

My youngest nephew, aged 3, (eventually) dressed up in a Dracula costume from Asda. It had a mask and was so cute!

My middle nephew, aged 9, dressed up as a Zombie Gavroche from Les Mis (he is obessed with that film!)!

My eldest nephew, aged 12, has never liked dressing up so he just wore his normal clothes :’-D

My sisters both dressed up as witches and both had neon and black stripey tights! Ha ha! My mum dressed up as a queen witch!

I bought a skeleton onesie from Primark and skeleton socks and gloves from Asda.

For my face I used a mix of Illamasqua Rich Foundation in 115 and Dainty Doll foundation in the lightest shade. For my eyes, nose and cheekbones I used Boots Natural Collection eyeshadow, which worked better than I expected! For my lips/tooth lines I used Barry M in black.

On my nails I used OPI crackle in black over the top of Sleek in meringue. Both of which I picked up at the pound shop!

We had a spooktacular time!

Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush Cherub

Sorry about the photo quality, should have taken it in daylight :-/

So, yesterday I tried out this blusher in Flush and loved it! Today I’ve applied the same base (Illamasqua Hydra Veil, Illamasqua Skin Base 2 & No 7 translucent loose powder), and applied Cherub to my apples with my fingers ^_^

I love Cherub just as much as I love Flush! Cherub is softer and more of an everyday colour compared to Flush, which is more striking. Today I felt delicate and feminine °^_^°

Flush is a definite pink, Cherub is a little warmer with slightly coral tones – not too much tho and not orange!

Here’s my face after another long day at work! Here I am wearing Pixi Tint in no 3 Craving Coral on my lips. My top is Primark and my head scarf is by Gobbolino 😀
