Dress Your Face

My first look at the brand new Tamanna palette - an exciting collaboration between Anastasia Beverly Hills and stunning MUA artist +DressYourFace!

It's finally officially Autumn (even though here in England we're clinging onto the last bit of Summer for as long as we can) and this palette has some perfect shades that drop right into the current popular Fall trends and I couldn't resist putting a few of them to good use today.




EYES:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion in 'Eden'
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Bengal' eyeshadow (from the 'Tamanna: Dress Your Face' palette) blended into crease
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Chocolate' eyeshadow (from the 'Tamanna: Dress Your Face' palette) to deepen crease
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Sangria' eyeshadow (from the 'Tamanna: Dress Your Face' palette) all over lid and lower lash line
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'China Rose' eyeshadow (from the 'Tamanna: Dress Your Face' palette) around tear duct
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Fresh' eyeshadow (from the 'Tamanna: Dress Your Face' palette) to slightly highlight brow bone
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color in 'Azure' along lower waterline
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Venezia' eyeshadow (from the 'Tamanna: Dress Your Face' palette) to set waterline

Neon Orange

Simple neon orange look using the amazing 'Saffron' loose pigment by ColourChase Cosmetics. I applied the pigment wet on top of a primer to achieve maximum colour payoff and slightly blended out any harsh lines. Easy peasy! 

Applied a graphic-style liner to give the look a little bit of something else as it was so straight-forward with very few products needing to used. Also strayed away from false lashes this time just to make sure the liner was fully visible. Sometimes less is more!




EYES:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden
  • ColourChase Cosmetics Ultra Rich Pigment in 'Saffron' all over lid
  • Eyeko Visual Eyes Liquid Eyeliner in 'Ebony' to plot out eyeliner
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color in 'Jet' placed over liquid liner to create matte effect and to line upper waterline
  • Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara 

BROWS:
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in 'Auburn'
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in 'Auburn'
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in 'Auburn'

Smokey Peach And Vivid Blues

Weeeee, I'm excited to finally back blogging again after taking a stupidly long unexpected hiatus and I have some great new things to post about!

First off is a brand that was new and unheard of to me until I was contacted by them a few weeks ago. Lila'lli is a cosmetic brand based right here in the UK who specialise in creating high-quality products that are both multi-functional and multi-tasking. Featured below is an example of their Line.Define.Fill. product - a new generation of pencil that is available in a range of shades and colours that can be used either on the eyes, lips and brows. 

Lila'lli also provide Lip Collision; a handy lipstick/lipgloss combination, Pigment Infusion; a pressed powder to be used to highlight, contour and colour various areas of the face such as eyes, lips and cheeks and also a selection of false lashes. Well worth checking out if you're on a tight budget and need products that can be used for just about anything.

Secondly, I'm really excited to play around with the gorgeous Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Maya Mia' palette and their brand new Waterproof Creme Color - both used in the look below - which is a smudge and crease proof cream product that can be used as an intense eyeshadow base or alone as an eyeliner as I did here.

What do you think? Do you like the look of these new products? I'm very impressed with them so far!
