LOTD Dark Berry Lips - Lord & Berry Lipstick

The trend on alot of celebrities and models at the moment is the dark berry lip.
I love this look so much. My inner rocker was dying to break out, so when ASOS had 20% off makeup I invested in my first Lord & Berry lipstick called Vogue Black Red.

It's got a matte finish and I absolutely adore the colour. It's rich and pigmented, although a little drying, but this is often the case with matte lipsticks anyway.

I wore it to work one friday and although noone said anything I did get a few double takes, but that's never really bothered me as long as it's for having out there makeup rather than it being smeared all over my face.
I just stuck to a plain black flick on the eye, with a little bit of Mac Young Punk over the top to set it and add a little sparkle.

This lipstick would look fab with a dark smokey eye on a night out. Probably not so work friendly though!

FOTD - Turquoise and Orange

This look was inspired by one of the hundreds of makeup pictures I have saved on my iPad.
I was looking for something a bit different that I could do using one of my new Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eyeshadows, that I just posted about.

To create this look, I took Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Forever Turquoise and placed it in the inner third of my eye, in the outer third I used Make Up Forever eyeshadow in number 5 and in the middle I used Mac eyeshadow in Dazzlelight.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo Cream Eyeshadows

I am a massive fan of Mac Paint Points, I use them most days as a base for other eye shadows. The only thing they lack are colours. Occasionally we get some colours released as part of a limited edition collection but the permanent ones are all very neutral.

So when I saw the Maybelline 24 Hr Colour Tattoos came in some bright colours I knew I had to check them out.

I grabbed a couple from my local Boots store when they were 3 for 2.

The two that caught my eye were Endless Purple and Turquoise Forever.
The colour payoff is great. Endless Purple needs a couple of layers to really pack on the colour but Forever Turquoise is intense in one swipe.

I certainly haven't worn them for 24 hours but I have worn them both alone and with eye shadows on top for around 12 hours with no creasing or fading. These are fab.

If you're a fan of Mac Paint Pots but not the price tag then you should definitely check these out as they are only £4.99 each and currently on offer at Boots where you will get 3 for 2. Bargain.
