I am in absolute love with The Boys. They complement me so well. I always feel my very best when I am with them. And there is a certain Mama with whom I feel quite sexy. Before you go and think I have lost my …. umm well you know, let me just say I am talking about my blushes from The Balm which have quite sassy names. Continue reading
Black symbolizes sexy, smouldering, bold attitude. A black smokey eye look changes the whole attitude of others towards you. Suddenly others perceive you a vixen, a don’t-mess-with-me lady, a rockstar, a complete kick ass female. Carrying a black smokey look is a challenge, it’s not for everyone and definitely not a every day look.
Green and purple are one of my favorite combinations, when it comes to dresses, jewelery and especially when it comes to eye makeup.

And to prove that, I will be doing a series of tutorials demonstrating various smokey looks that have been created from this palette alone. Continue reading

I have already raved about my love for Urban Decay eyeliners and how they convinced me to try eyeliners myself. Nyx Slide On eyeliners are cheaper then UD ones but nearly just as good with pigmentation and staying power ( check out the Nyx eyeliners review here ). They have 18 gorgeous shades and 4 just didn’t satisfy my greed. So I promised myself that I would get more shades from this range. I took advantage of the Lifestyle promotion last month and got myself more eyeliners. Continue reading
