Rushing out for Rush-Hour

I was wearing one of my long-time hero Benefit Cosmetics products today which I hadnt worn it a while. I dont know why I keep forgetting about it because everytime I wear it, I fall in love with it all over again. So I was going to use it in a MOTD post until I went onto the Benefit website to get the link and price for you when I realised that it has been discontinued! I’m finding out recently that lots of my favourite products are on their way out! I’m totally gutted. I’m extremely sad to see Rush Hour be discontinued. So I checked online and there are a few places have left over stock, which you know I will have to panic buy now!
It’s so disappointing when this happens to products you love! Has it happened to you with certain products? I’d love to hear the products you miss the most.

In the meantime, here is a little tribute shot of me wearing Rush Hour, you can totally see the sadness and disappointment on my face haha.

Make-up of the Day (14/6/2014)

Sorry Ive not posted the past few days, I’m away on holidays next week (yippeeee) and I’ve had so much to catch up on before I go (booooooo).

So since I have two minutes to spare I thought first actually apply some makeup which is alway helpful for a MOTD and then I could pop up a quick MOTD post for you 🙂 Todays look was a nice and bright summer look with flawless skin and soft contouring.

Make-up of the Day (05-06-14)

Oh I LOVE playing with new Palettes. This is the second of the two new palettes I bought from the Makeup Pro Store in Belfast. It is my Make-up Atelier Paris and is so versatile.

I woke feeling a little under the weather today so I’m feeling the need to smoke it out a bit. I didn’t sculpt my brows too much today as I am in and out of business meetings all day and don’t want to frighten anyone when up close and personal haha.

I actually used the Eyeshadow Palette to shade my brows a little so they are well matched. I just applied a bit of clear brow gel to my brows first and then used a thin angle brush to shade.

Here is my Make-up of the Day – As per usual, larger images are at the bottom.

Makeup of the Day – ‘Same Palette, Different Day’ (04-6-14)

I wanted to show the versatility of make-up and how you can create different looks with the one product. So for today’s MOTD, I used exactly the same make-up products as I did in my last MOTD post, but I used them in a slightly different way to create a more dramatic look.

The only thing I changed was the amount of the different colours in the eye-shadow palette and how I packed it on to create more depth of colour in the pigment. I also used a black eyeliner pencil as opposed to the white pencil in the last one.

Here you go, here is my look of the day. Let me know what you think ♥ (Larger photos below the product details).
