Nails | Models Own Icing Collection.

The latest collection from Models Own is the Icing Collection* and is all about sweet-treat inspired beautiful pastel springs. Perfect timing! I love my candy colours, and I think they have hit the nail on the head with these 5 shades - from nude to bright green. They come in a limited edition frosted bottle for that 'icing' effect.

March Birchbox in collaboration with Habitat.

This month's Birchbox* is a special collaboration with Habitat to bring you 'DO TRY THIS AT HOME'. It's all about refreshing, de-cluttering, at-home pampering and D.I.Y beauty and decor. It's time for that spring clean , and changing the little things can make a big impact on your life. This box is an interesting one and has beauty & lifestyle products that cover a wide base of interests and tastes, I also love the way Birchbox are now doing a little teaser about what is in next month's box now. So WHAT'S INSIDE?!...

Makeup Crush Monday #12 | Makeup Forever HD Powder.

First up : Makeup Forever is FINALLY coming to the high street and will be launching into Debenhams this May in the UK : yayyyy! It is available in a few makeup specialist shops, but I think it is great news that it will now be easier to get hold of for everyone as they really have some fabulous products : The HD foundation, the aqua rouge lip colours and THIS, one of my favourite products from them, the HD High Definition Powder.

Makeup Look | Too Faced Smokey Eye & Red Lip.

I'm still working out what makeup is suited best to my new pink hair, and this was the first time I had tried a red lip, and I quite like the contrast. I used all of my favourite Too Faced products* for this look and the beautiful melted lipstick (makeup lover must-have!). I'm feeling a little rough-faced this week... I've been getting a bit lazy with the old PM cleanse and have been using wipes a bit too much and my skin is a little meh and under the weather. I think this weekend is going to be a pamper one for me, I definately need to indulge myself with some kind of candle-lit bath and at-home facial.

My new look | Pastel Pink Hair.

Last week I was looking on Pinterest (are you on it?! follow me along with the 20 others here!) and I was lusting over pastel pink, lilacs and all the pretty hair. Fast forward 2 hours later and I was over my sink bleaching the shit out of my hair to take my ombre dark blonde/brown hair into the lightest possible shade I could get. You need to be very blonde, almost white to take on pastel hair colours. Yeah, I have no idea what spurred me to do it myself but I just sometimes have these impulsive/crazy/stupid moments. I have quite a good selection of peroxide, bleach powders, toners, colours and have done quite a bit of at-home-experimenation with my hair before so I had everything needed within reach (I'm not sure if this was a good or a bad thing?!).

London Fashion Week | Makeup Kit Essentials.

Working backstage at fashion shows requires a makeup artist to work within a really small space, so packing just the essentials is necessary as there is not much room for un-needed items and indulgent packing. Here are my trusty tried & tested items that are always in my backstage fashion week makeup kit : I literally packed this up last night for shows today.

Makeup Crush Monday #11 | Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel

This weeks' Makeup crush is all about the brows and a new product from Illamasqua. The Precision brow gel* is a coloured cream/gel formula that is water-resistant and perfect for creating a natural and defined brow. I haven't used the Anastasia dipbrow but perhaps this is similar?
