Never Fading Jade

Hello my Lovelies I'm back again with another look. Ok so lets get into it!

On my outer upper crease I've blended out Mac spiced chocolate from the Spiced Chocolate quad I got this from the Mac Cult  of Cherry line which was a limited edition. Its a really beautiful chocolate brown with a warm reddish undertone to it.To the upper eyelids I packed on Ben Nye Jade from the Grande Lumiere Palette, to the lower lids I applied  Jade once again then I've used a slightly different shade of green which is another eyeshadow by Ben Nye in Chartreuse slightly lighter shade of green I used this to blend out the outer edges to the bottom lids.

Ben Nye Grande Lumiere Palette is intensely pigmented and better than many colourful MAC shadows and pigments that I own. a very good investment if you like bright intense colours. I love using this palette on my brides it gives a bright stunning appearance and it adheres very well.

On the face I got on which I have on most days is the Ex1 foundation in 200 I really am in love with this foundation it gives brilliant coverage without feeling too heavy on the face and pores I usually purchase once I run out from they do free delivery so you cant go wrong!
Concealer L.A Pro girl concealer.

For contour Hoola Bronzer and Dallas by Benefit. As highlight I have on whisper of guilt MSF. On the lips I have on my absolute fave Lime Crime Salem!

Neutral Eyes with Lime Crime Salem

Salem is quite an interesting colour, I wasn't too sure about a chocolate brown colour for the lips, but when I tried this one I completely fell in love this really suits people with medium or golden yellow undertones if you're a desi girl you definitely need this one in your kit seriously an amazing colour, super pigmented matte liquid lipstick you can't go wrong with this one!

On my face I have on Mac Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation with L.A Pro girl concealer, 
to my set my foundation I have on Chanel loose powder in natural I've been using this for 5 years can't live without it! .I have left the lids completely bare. On the brows I have on Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Ebony, I used Benefit hoola to contour with and MAC Whisper of Gilt Extra Dimension Highlighter to finish off the look. I haven't been wearing any blush I prefer this pale kind of look this season especially with dark lipsticks thanks for reading x

Daytime 2 Evening Eyes

For daytime I like to normally stick with a neutral e/s and lip stain if i'm wearing bold colours I'm wearing Mac Morange I lightly dabbed off the excess on a tissue. On the lids I've got got Urban Decay Blunt.

I recently discovered Eye Kandy Glitter Sprinkles and was blown away by how amazing this product is! 
The color selection is phenomenal, I chose to go for  JellyBean & PeachFizz. I used Mac BlackTrack a fluid liner instead of a sugar adhesive. I smudged Mac BlackTrack all over the upper lids I then with a fluffy brush in circular motion I applied Mac Wedge the to finish it off I then applied JellyBean Glitter to the top I'm happy that it stayed in place.  

These glitters are very fine lightweight and easy to use I'm glad the glitters were not chunky normally I get a mild watery eye due to the glitters falling into my eyes from the lids but these gltters were just fine I didn't get no fallouts into my eyes. I'm completely hooked! Eye Kandy makes it easy to go from a day-time, low-key look to an all-out glam evening look that gets you noticed. Definitely will be purchasing more glitters from them in the future.

Here Comes the Sun

Sharing some snaps I took of Farhad at the park. After we finished with some spring cleaning around the house we headed to the park to soak up on some sun that we were missing out on whilst being stuck indoors due to the unpredictable windy rainy weather so finally we were off to spend the whole afternoon (in hopes of wearing my toddler down for a mega million nap!..;)

He's been down due to his teeth coming through we got four teeth at the top and two at the bottom so we should have another two at the bottom very soon. Tough times but we'll pull through. How are you spending your week?..

I always used to  think I would have a little quiet girl who sat down and read books and played barbies so quietly. Instead I got blessed with the coolest boy who is loud, full of life and naturally so cool. HONESTLY this is so much better! 

Birds Eye view ;)

Farhad running wild.. freedom! 
Not being in the pram is like a whole new different world

Pink Kisses with Lime Crime Geradium

I am declaring this a Lime Crime Month!

I reviewed some current Velvetines in my previous post but up until now I had not experienced with the quality of the opaque lipsticks from Lime Crime. I read some conflicting reviews online and saw some amazing swatches and some terrible ones. But the more and more swatches I saw sealed the deal for me

Curiosity got the better of me and I decided to purchased Geradium and Coquette I will review Coquette in another post.

Geradium is one of Lime Crime's newer colours, its a coral pink perfect for summer. It has excellent formulation not quite so thick so can be worn toned down if preferred. I am so glad I got this one! it is a beautiful shade, It's a very vibrant medium pink,but not to the point that is has that tacky brightness about it!

I find when wearing this outdoors it looks quite light on the lips whilst indoors it looks a tad bit dark just slightly not too much.I love this for a daytime look and find it very flattering teamed with a peachy neutral eye. This is definitely a perfect pink for the warmer months ahead,

I think this is a shade which would flatter any skin tone.

LIME CRIME The Clueless Witch Wicked Review

Hi lovelies! 

When I found out about the new Lime Crime Velvetine Collection. Dubbed the Clueless Witch Collection I couldn't decide between the three shades, so I finally I got the Wicked shade.  I am in love with this shade it's a deep rose  burgundy colour, goes on liquid and dries completely matte, its touch-proof, transfer-proof, long-wearing.

I've previously reviewed other Lime Crime Velvetines shades here and here if you want to have a look. It's a really different collection for Lime Crime. The previous shades were fairly bright but these are vampy and dark. With a black, a deep red rose burgundy and a warm brown. 

The formula and wear time of this lipstick is generally good. 
At the end of the day  I coat my lips with Almond oil and then wipe away with a damp cotton pad. 

I think I will definitely getting the most wear out of Wicked it is super intense and definitely my favourite lipstick of this Month!
