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.

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?!...

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.

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.

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?!).

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.

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?
