Psst! MAC to launch a beauty blogger makeup line!

The folks over at BellaSugar have the lowdown on something very exciting- a beauty blogger/ MAC makeup mashup. The Beauty blogging world goes kerazzy over MAC stuff, so it’s only fair they now get to share just why they love it so. A super secret trip saw 10 elite bloggers (Temptalia, obv) head over to MAC HQ for testing and trialling and a range of limited edition loveliness will be coming our way soon.

Five celebrities that I wish had makeup ranges

Dita Von Teese
Yes, she has a perfume (OK, collab with Agent Provocateur) but a mini collection with a trusty red lipstcik, black ultimate eyeliner and white face powder would be great. I’ve heard she’s in discussion with some big brands so fingers crossed we FINALLY get this.

Jordan/ Katie Price
The lady likes to live to excess, so why shouldn’t her makeup line? Key products; The Ultimate fake tan, Fake lashes and a lip plumping gloss. OK, they might be overblown and tacky, but that has been a proven success formula for her and aspiring glamour girls.

Kim Cattrall
If I looked that good at 30 I’d be happy and she’s 54!. Key products; Age defying foundation, face primer and a one size fits all blush. Add a skincare line and I’d be first in the queue. Continue reading

Beauty is a very cyclical world and many trends resurface years later. We’ve seen seventies glamour, doe eyed style and now the china doll look (as featured on the Anna Sui catwalk) is making a comeback. Eylure have released special top and bottom lash sets to allow you to get the look, and I’m in love with their old school false lash adverts. Here are a few I snapped- aren’t they adorable?

Alexa Chung bright blue Coachella festival nail look

Alexa Chung is known for being fashion forward, and when I spotted the bright blue nail varnish adorning her nails as she attended Coachella, I had to do a get the look. I love bright shades, they’re playful and pretty and when it’s sunny they make you look so fresh. I don’t know what shade she used, but here are three ‘get the look’ nail shades.

Check out:

OPI No Room for the Blues

Barry M Blueberry Nail paint

Nails Inc Special Effects (for a funky alternate look). Continue reading

Luminaire Highlighting Concealer from Sleek MakeUP

As a massive fan of Sleek MakeUp I jump on any new release with glee and love the sound of their new Luminaire Highlighting Concealer. It’s designed along the YSL Touche Eclat style, but rather than purely highlighting cheekbones, it’s also designed to conceal circles, reduce lines and plump up skintone. Love that it’s budget friendly (as always with Sleek MakeUP) and look forward to trying it!

Out on May 11th for £6.49 from Sleek MakeUP Continue reading
