Eye Shadow Palette Challenge

Look Book; Eye shadow palettes


I love eyeshadow palettes and as you can see mine are pretty well used. You also may notice that there are some colours I’ve not even touched. So to make up for the lack of Look Book posts (posts about makeup looks and tutorials) I’m issuing myself a challenge and I need your help. I want you guys to pick one of these palettes and I’m going to make not one, but five looks from it and post tutorials up for them.

So check out the pictures below to get a closer look at each palette and then comment with your choice! The one with the most votes wins 🙂

This years nails [so far]

Nails so far 2016

As March draws to a close I’ve been struggling to come up with something for this months Look Book so I apologise for this months one being somewhat duller than planned. March has been a difficult month and the last few weeks have been filled with assignment deadlines so I’m doing something very simple; showcasing my nails so far. I’ve been working my way through the 48 nail polishes I got at Christmas which are showcased here.

The last one was a break away from the set of nail polishes because I got this absolutely gorgeous polish (and another one in green) for Easter 😀 I am so in love with it, I cannot stop looking at my nails. I’ll be trying the green one soon so don’t forget to follow me on instagram to see the results and any other nail colours I try next!

What one do you like best?


48 colours of the rainbow

48 Colours of the rainbow

I love nail varnish, and I love having different colours. However, to have every colour of the rainbow costs a bomb. After a bit of research I came across a selection of 48 individual shades for a very decent price (£12!) and some good reviews. They arrived the other day and ooh so many shiny fun colours to try!






Dark Pinks and Reds:


Oranges and Browns:



Yellows and Golds:





Greens and Turquoises:





The only colours I’m unlikely to use much are the neon green and neon pink. I am going to be trying them all out and showing the results on my instagram. So if you’re not already following me and want to see how some of these come out then do so! I’m also taking requests on what ones to try out and when, so feel free to comment on any photos or this entry to request one 🙂 (It helps me narrow down my next choice too!).

I’m a little disappointed that most of the purples are more pinkish than purple, and I think the blues and greens are what I’m most excited about. This selection also appealed to me because I wanted some more feminine interview/work friendly shades like pale pinks and pale browns.
