Girly Gothic

Wearing black has never been my style. I’m a cupcake and pink flower girl. But experimenting with colour comes with the makeup territory and since venturing into the unknown black region I find myself falling in love with this colour. Combine black with an inner gothic diva spirit and bamm, this look emerged! 
Don’t worry it is super simple really.
Step one; don’t comb your hair! Or if you have hair like me that just wants to fall straight down, then add some volume with some mousse and just makes it messy.
Step two; start with a clean base; sheer foundation and powder. That all folks!
Step three; black gel eyeliner with a slight winged out top lash line and bottom waterline for me. Of course you can try the dramatic cat eyes with some false eyelashes. 
Step four; fix your pout! I used black eyeliner to slightly outline the shape of the lips and then blended the liner inwards. Finish the lip with a black lipstick. I used NYX Round lipstick in Penelope. Although it’s a black lipstick, the colour is not super black on first swipe, so that’s why the lips look a bit sheer in the middle. Pack it on if you rather have a super black lip.
Step five; Comb the brows upwards for a messy look and add black eye-shadow or pencil liner! All done now! Easy right? 
Overall I find this look gothic but with a girly edge. I will go full on gothic one day! Hope you enjoyed anyway!
Happy Girly Gothic!
XOXO
Naomi

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you. I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on. But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
