So I am back from my holidays. I spent almost 2 weeks camping around France in Thunder and Lightening Storms, needless to say, there was very little make-up applied during my time away. I feel like I need to explain this so you will understand why I just went a bit bonkers for my makeup of the day today! I needed a Makeup overload.
As the end of the World Cup is drawing close, I just thought I would throw something together a little Brazil inspired! I reckon you should maybe pop on your sunshades before scrolling down 🙂
Products used to create the look are:
- Collection 2000 Colour Pop Palette
- Inglot Yellow Eyeshadow
- Collection 2000 Pencils in Green and Blue
- Barry M Gold Dust
- MAC Cosmetics Chromaline in Black
- Katie Perry Eyelashes (Punk Princess)
- Illamasqua Sealing Gel
Here you go! Here is my MOTD.

My Makeup of the Day is not for the faint-hearted. I was pretty disappointed in how the poor the photos were to be honest. What you can’t see is that the darkest parts of my brow is actually a dark purple glitter gel, so it sparkled when I moved. Anyhooooo, this isn’t my actual makeup I decided to wear today, more of a mess about this morning. I had wanted to try and get some matching Ombre lips done too but ran out of time in between clients.
My brows are a Pink to Purple Ombre and I seriously think I would consider rocking it on a regular day…. so get your sunglasses on Belfast as you may just see me out and about with some neon brows 🙂
To create this whole look I used two products:
Sleek Makeup i-Devine Eyeshadow Palette – Ultra Matte – £7.99
Illamasqua – Sealing Gel – £7.00

I love Valentines Day’s! There, I’ve admitted it. I love the whole Romancing Fairytale feel to it. However, as a Makeup Artist, I also love it for a different reason. Cosmetic Brands always bring out the most gorgeous Valentines Edition sets. One brand who never fails us is Illamasqua.
Aptly named ‘I’m the One’ – The name drew me in as well as I am very much on the understanding that you are the most important person in your life and it should always be that way. If you don’t love yourself, you cannot fully love anyone else. So when this collection was named ‘I’m the One’ as opposed your ‘You’re the One’ – I was sold!
I want to show you the Illamasqua image for this collection. I love it, its so edgy, pretty and dramatic. It’s very typical in the amazing and unique images Illamasqua continue to produce for each of their collections.
I love that they have not only used the red pencil on the lips, but also the brows. I think they look amazing!
There are four items included in this collection:
1. Intense Lipgloss in ‘Touch‘ – (RRP £14.50)
2. Lip Colouring Pencil in ‘Feisty’– (RRP £14.00)
3. Nail Varnish – ‘Throb’ – (RRP £14.50)
4. Lipstick – ‘Maneater’ – (RRP £16.50)
If you were to buy these items separately it would cost you £59.50. However for a limited period, Illamasqua are offering these together as the ‘I’m the One’ collection for only £50.00 so you get a very please £9.50 off and you get to look sexy, sultry and generally AMAZING!

Try not to be too jealous, but I just spent the morning in Make-up heaven with Illamasqua in Belfast following the recent release of their newest Autumn / Winter 2012 Collection, ‘Generation Q’.
I love so many of the new products in this collection. The pigment in all of the products, including their Lipstick, Gloss, Eye-Shadow Palette, Liquid Liner and Blusher is perfection! There is no need to have to layer up on products to get a noticeable colour, with these products you get it first time. The new Generation Q productsare well worth a try
