Paint it Purple

Barry M are very well known for the amazing nail paints they make and recently I've been loving their creamy pastel colours. I picked up number 308 in 'Berry Ice Cream' from boots last week and I am in LOVE with it!
After just one coat it is pretty damn purple, but after two - oh boy!
I think it's just replaced 'Blue Moon' as my new favourite colour.

My 'No make-up' make-up

I recently watched a Lisa Eldridge tutorial on how to do 'no make-up' make-up, she showed how to keep the skin looking dewy and fresh but still being able to cover up any blemishes. I loved the natural look of the make-up so decided to give it a go myself.
And this is what I came up with:

Products I used:

 Swatches: Blush, concealor, foundation, lipstick

Eyes: Collection 2000 Extreme coloured lengthening mascara (Black 1)
Face: Toner - Dermalogica soothing protection spray
         Moisturiser- Bobbi Brown Oil control lotion spf 15
         Foundation - Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation spf 15 (Warm Ivory 1)
         Concealer - Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch Light diffusing concealer (Natural 2)
         Blush - Natural Collection Cream Blusher (apricot blush)
         Highlight - Sleek Makeup Face & body  highlighter (peach shimmer)
Lips: Lipstick - M.A.C. Cremesheen (shy girl)
        Lipgloss - Balance Me Cool brightening lemon & spearmint salve

This look is perfect for everyday as you can have confidence in your skin looking flawless without worrying it's looking cakey or like you've made too much effort ;)
