I’m Back…..

Well Guys, I am back in sunny, eh I mean, very wet and cold Scotland! My first bit of traveling is finished and I already miss America, especially New York. If you want to know more about my American and Canadian travels you can visit my travel blog here. I leave for Africa on the 14th February and arrive in CapeTown first!!! So excited but also really, really nervous…….anyone want to join me?

So now that I am back I can’t wait to get a few more photoshoots organised with the immensely talented creatives that are here in Edinburgh!! Make sure you check back for behind the scenes from these shoots………

Recently (well just before christmas) I got a lovely mention on a wonderful blog- ‘How to be Fancy’ you can check it out here. I love this blog written by the awesome Heather, it always has great beauty inspiration. 

Tomorrow I will post all the makeup goodies that I got for my christmas…….. super, super exciting!



Winter beauty ‘must haves’!

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way…….

I am already super DUPER excited about christmas and am preparing to put up my tree and decorations on the 1st December! I love this time of year where you can wrap up in so many layers you look like the abominable snowman and get away with it. Its also a great season to experiment with cooler makeup colours such as whites, blues and silvers. Here are my favourite beauty products that are going to make this winter AWESOME.

‘Fever’ MAC Blusher is my favourite colour for flushed winter cheeks. This is a very pigmented blush so go easy when applying. You can see this blusher in my ‘November makeup products’ tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxTQsFukRrg

MAC Snowglobe Christmas Collection 2011 are amazing! I love the packaging and my favourite one is the blue palette. For $45 you get 6 gorgeous and highly pigmented eyeshadows in great winter colours- sparkly white, silvers, greys, blues and purples. Great for experimenting with those cooler colours.

`Honey-Love`Matt lipstick by MAC is my nude lipstick of choice this season. You can team it with a nude eye or any colour that you wish to use as eyeshadow. Such a versatile lippy is a `must have`for this season of cold winter days and evening christmas parties.

Inglot eyeshadow in 395 the perfect shimmery colour that can also be used as a highlighter.

Benefit ‘They’re Real’ mascara is great to achieve false lashes without the hassle of glue and a fiddly strip lash. Great for fluttering your lashes at all the christmas parties you will be attending.

MAC cream highlighter in ‘Pearl’ is my all time favourite highlighter/illuminator. Blend above cheek bones and under brow bones for an instant party glow.

Make sure that your lips are juicy red and kissable this holiday season! I love GOSH Red Lipgloss.

Have fun and be merry……
