Mii make-up.... LOVE LOVE LOVE

Sorry I haven't been writing recently, been extremely busy with uni work....booooo! I have decided to let you all know about a make-up brand that I have only just come across but am very impressed with!!! This brand is 'Mii Make-up' and it's by Gerrard International. But why Mii?
A make-up... 'that combines the finest
ingredients, effortless application
and unrivalled expertise to bring
out your natural beauty.
There's also a unique minerals
range which works in harmony
with your skin, to give you a glow
both inside and out.'

First of all....I love the packaging!...a little 'Benefit' like.
I have always found it hard to find a nice foundation that stays on all day and that blends properly..... but now I have only gone and found one! Mii's flawless face base is so nice and use it in conjunction with the miracle base brush, you will actually have an airbrushed look! (and trust me I have tried the whole airbrushing foundation :)) The Miracle base brush, which I now call the magic brush. Wonderfully blends the foundation, but doesn't collect any product.....see... it's magic! You literally just wack it on your face and the using the magic brush in circular motions, blend it all in. It looks amazing!

Unfortunately I haven't got any more pictures because it's oh so new but when I get some i'll pop them on here! You'll be able to get it online but any girls in LB, you can get it from 'Expressions' my sisters beauty salon in town!

I much prefer my body when its a lot of girls! So usually I use what I think is the best...'Fake bake original' This is a great tanning gel that when you apply to the skin it is already tinted, giving you a dirty tan look but a perfect guide for applying, just so you don't get those dredded streaks! In the box you get the tanning gel/lotion, gloves and a mini tube of body conditioning, which you put on elbows and knee...any harder skined areas that might need smoothing before the tanning process.

 This Fake bake is usually around £23 but if you look online shopping, you can probably get it for £17. If this is still a bit over your budget, I have found a wonderful alternative......Soltan beautiful bronze gel. This is only around £6 and has been on offer a lot recently. It does have a slight tinted guide when applying, which helps but do be careful to get everywhere! I have found it really good and am sure that I will definitely be buying it again!
To apply the soltan I used a mitt which is good because it is re-usable onces washed but disposable plastic gloves are also good and will do the job.
Hope thats helped anyone :)

BarryM'S Crack......

 Well..... I know what you were all thinking, but it's nail varnish! This new BarryM nail varnish is pretty cool. Above are my nails at the moment. I have just tried it out and am very impressed!
 The new 'crackle effect' nail varnish goes on like a normal black nail varnish would, then dries leaving a cracked effect.
Underneath this crackle nail varnish I decided to use this collection 2000 aztech gold and it looks wicked. I must warn you all ..... buy it if you see it as it seems to be selling out everywhere!!

1940's make-up...

 Here is what I did on my friend. However, instead of the eyeliner flicks, I decided to use a bit of eye shadow, either grey or brown would have been the colours used in the 40's. Finally I completed the look by creating a 'victory roll' This was done using heated rollers and then pins to hold in place.
 Dita Von Teese is a perfect example to how the make-up should be worn! The shaped eyebrows- usually done using brow pencils or if you haven't got one of them then eye shadow does the trick perfectly, eyeliner flicks- using liquid eyeliner...and my favourite brand would be bobbi brown but if you want a cheaper alternative the collection 2000 is great. Finally bright red lips and for this...I love benefit!
1940's make-up is very clean and very fashionable even now. I love wearing 1940's make-up because I get to wear red lipstick......anything to make my skinny lips fuller!
