FOTD: 20.01.10

My Mom and Dad are having a party on the 30th January for all my family, so obviously I'm thinking about how I should do my makeup. After watching Tiffany's latest video, I decided to give it a go. This was my practice run but I really love how it turned out. Its actually much brighter in the flesh, my camera and lighting doesn't do it any justice. Let me know what you think, Perfect party look???

Makeup Organisation: My MAC Pallets

Now that we are all over the Chrismas Period and in to the New Year its time to get organised. So over the next few post, i’m going to be sharing with you all my makeup organisation and any tips I have that are useful for those of us with large makeup collections. First up it the turn of my MAC eyeshadow pallets. I reorganise them all the time, but in the end I always come back to the way they are now. Its my tried and trusted setup.
I keep them all in a 15-pan pallets and each colour has its own pallet. I label them so its easy to find what I’m looking for. You’ll see that I tend to go in order of light to dark and I also try to keep warm colours together and cool colours together wherever possible.

In and Out - January 2010

This is my first Ins and Outs post, but its what I love reading on other peoples blogs, so I'm adding it to mine!

In This Month

Number One: The Weather


England was hit with a snow storm yesterday, which for the snow-loving souls like me, is BRILLIANT. I adore snow, I love having to wrap up with tons of layers, I love walking with snowflakes catching on my eyelashes and most of all I love waking up in the morning to the blanket of white outside my window. Everything just looks so much prettier in the snow.


Number Two: Lush Baths

In this cold wintery weather there is nothing nicer than a hot, steaming bubble bath and there is no product out there in the whole world that can top a long soak in the tub with Lush's The Comforter Bubble Bar and a really good book. Pure bliss!


Number Three: My Yaby Eyeshadow Pallet


I have the Dramatically Neutral pallet, which for me has a much better colour selection than the one pictured above, as I tend to do a lot more neutral looks. I got this at IMATS for $71 and I've used this almost everyday since. The colours have amazing staying power, very pigmented and there is a really good selection of neutral colours in the set. Well worth the money. Its also the perfect pallet to travel with.

Out This Month

Number One: Going Back To Work

Yes, for me going back to work after my 2 weeks off for Christmas is the only bad thing in this months ins and outs.  I've really enjoyed being able to stay in bed later and just generally relaxing. I've been back at work for 3 days and I'm already ready for another holiday. Oh how I wish I was a lady of leisure!
