Ok, so we were pressed for time… Nevertheless I hope you enjoy our Halloween offering. One day, when Megan has a boyfriend…I will make sure I show him all of her clips. If you ask me, the wig is quite Kim Kardashian? I remember the first time I saw The Ring, one of those late night films on Channel 4 – scared the living crap out of me. I can’t believed she xxx out of […]

Curses to those who sell me wobbly lipsticks! The lipstick in question is my MAQUillage Glossy Lipstick (can’t remember the exact name, MAQUillage always give their lipsticks still names like Perfect Gloss Rogue, Nuance Perfect Rouge, Gloss Nuance Rouge, Shine Perfect Nuance Rouge etc. etc.): I LOVE this lipstick. The texture, the colour (RS304 – cool toned pink-mauve) is DIVINE. One of my top 5 lipsticks. My issue is this: 1. The lipstick is not […]

Hopefully you will find some tips to help you get better pictures for your blog or personal use! Ya ready? Then let’s learn the things Richard Avedon would never have taught you. 1. Do the dour duckface Every self respecting beauty blogger needs to perfect the dour […]
Halp! So I am thinking this year I really will take the plunge and put a video together, but I have no idea what to do first. I am guessing this takes a while to put together properly, so before I start, I’d like to ask what kind of video you’d like to see…. Merci!
Happy Halloween! Did you have a good one? I’m afraid I completely avoided the glow in the dark fangs and plastic pumpkin buckets this year, as I was, for once in my life, not babysitting – readers, I was ditched by a 9 year old. She had other plans. That said, who needs a snotty, nit-infested brat to have fun on ghoul night anyway? (bitter? moi?). Here is the look I did on Halloween which […]
There was some Twitter Talk the other week about a cleansing bar called Sweet Japanese Girl by Lush and how great it is for blackheads. I needed to try it! Perfume Headaches I’ll be honest and say whilst I love the look and principles of the Lush brand, I can’t walk into the shop without getting a migraine from the pungent fragrances. Anyway, word of mouth recommendation is strong, so I decided to get one […]
Here is the video of how to make lip balm. The next lesson will show you how to make a blackhead busting face cleanser (like Lush’s discontinued Sweet Japanese Girl Bar). Stay tuned!:

I am dabbling in the areas of tutorials – I am no professional but like a lot of girls who love make up, I get ideas from magazines and learn through practice. Everyone has to adapt things to suit their own eye shape but hopefully any of you can use this guide. All of the colours and tools I used are dupable but I have tried to use brands that can be bought from around […]
Hallo Ladies! Just a quickie to keep you all entertained. I adored Kate Moss’s look at the Met Gala – silver turban and everything! I printed out a picture of her and took it to my Illamasqua girl, where my lady Leena did a look for me. I should have got there with an hour to go but the cats – I blame the cats – held me up so there was only a paltry […]
I don’t do this very often but I just loovvvvveeeeeddddddddddd this eye look that Nars did for the Marc Jacobs show: This is obviously not an everyday look, it isn’t an understated look, its very much in yer face and dramatic, so save your YOU LOOK LIKE FRANKENSTEIN!* comments. *I am aware that Frankenstein isn’t the monster. Frankenstein is the professor, the monster is just called monster. Ok? So, apparently this look was achieved with […]
