Changing up my style and look is something that occurs pretty frequently. If If I’m not dying my hair, I’m cutting it all of, wearing it in curls or poker straight. I’m actually in shock at just how much it has grown in the last 12 months and it’s sitting quite long past my shoulders. It’s also pink and purple right now. I’ve had a little play around with a new wig recently, and I’ve headed back to my babes at Hot Hair who have sorted me out with a new style. Hot Hair have been around for many years and cater for all. From hair extensions, half and full wigs and hair pieces with prices ranging from £15 to the incredible Black label wigs at an incredible £1300, there really is a huge amount of choice.
After spotting the Mint To Be Wig by Hairdo, I just couldn’t resist the gorgeous colour. I did have my eye on it for such a long time before taking the plunge, and at the moment, it’s currently in the sale for £82.50. Although it is a synthetic piece, you can use heated products on it, however it had a wonderfully flippy, volumised style to start with.
I have taken the scissors to my wig ever so slightly to cut the fringe in a little more, and I’ve also give more of a side part than it sitting in the centre. I do love the freedom that you have with a wig in that you are changing your look but you can still tailor it to your preference. I also feel that my next cut may have to incorporate a full fringe because it looks so cute.
Being bold with my hair colour has meant that being bold with my makeup is a no brainer. It was time for strong brows, using Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Dark Brown, a flawless base using Too Faced Born This Way foundation and concealer before letting the eyes and lips do the talking. I’ve started to introduce bright colours back in on my lips and although I love the nude shades, I feel that I have come full circle again have headed back to the brights that I once was so well known for. The lipstick that I’ve used is an old favourite of mine, the Kat Von D Beauty Everlasting Lipstick in Berlin. I have written up my thoughts before now which you can find in my Kat Von D Berlin post, with swatches.
I had a lot of fun creating this eye look and it was actually really simple to do. Going to back to one of trusty palettes, the Urban Decay Full Spectrum, I am a bit gutted that you cannot get this anymore. Compared to other bright palettes that are available, I find that Full Spectrum gives a pop of colour but isn’t that in your face kind of colour shadows. Bearing in mind that not everyone wants Instagram eye makeup, but still want colour and variation. I have just got another brights palette in the form of Carnival by bPerfect and Stacey Marie MUA which is on another level of colour. The Urban Decay Full Spectrum to me is one of my go to’s for colours, quality and buttery smooth formulation that blends easily and is really easy to create looks that may be out of your comfort zone. I’ve used pinks and oranges for this look, with a slight touch of purple to deepen the crease, with shimmery orange tones to buff out.
On the lid, I used my NARS Soft Matte Concealer to cut out my crease and to give a flat smooth base, before laying on the absolutely beautiful Pixi Fairy Lights in Crystalline. In a way, they are somewhat like the Stila Magnificent Metals which I am so fond of, but I find the formulation of Pixi a little different. I am going to go into a bit further in a post coming up so keep an eye out! As always, I have used the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner which gives an intense black and super sharp wing with ease. For lashes, I have used the new Kiss Lashes Triple Push Ups in Bustier, which are a three layer lash with ultimate volume, length and curl. I adore them – they’re massive and perfect for my eye shape and I actually don’t feel like I have ginormous lashes on. To finish of my face, a quick dusting of the Benefit Gold Rush blusher before adding a few drops of the new Stila Magnificent Metals Highlighter in Monarch. Just like the Glitter and Glow shadows, the formulation give multi dimensional glitter and it a real wow factor. Don’t be scared of it, a little does go a long way for maximum drama and impact!
I do love creating these makeup looks and showing how the product looks on rather than just on a swatch so if there is anything that you would like to see, let me know! I’m so excited to share the new bPerfect palette with you soon!This post may contain PR samples that have been sent to me for consideration for review however all my opinions will be my own.
