Today I was very excited to receive an email from Illamasqua advertising their new summer collection. The collection is called Summer 2014 and includes matte lip liquids and blushers. The colours are of course very summery.

I've recently become a Keeping Up with the Kardashians follower. At first I was ashamed, but now I'm a proud fan. As a bit of a social media nerd, I obviously follow them all on Twitter/Instagram etc. and a few weeks ago I saw it. Kylie Jenners new hair. And from that moment onwards I knew I needed that hair.
And okay, I'm fully aware that no I do not look anything like Kylie Jenner, nor does my hair - even after I had it cut. But the the big trend we are focusing on here is the 'long bob'. As the owner of a rather large face I can't really go shorter than a long bob and although it did take a lot of getting used to I do love it!

Monday was the night of the MTV Movie Awards, to me the awards are just another excuse to admire celeb make up and beauty looks. As always they were looking beautiful. This year we got a lucky look at Zac Efron topless too, just as an added bonus - well done Rita Ora.
Here is a quick pick of my favourite looks…

So yesterday you saw my two favourite cosmetics places in Amsterdam, but don't worry - there was plenty more! One very interesting shop we visited was DA. They had LOADS of make up for sale. It was very much like their version of Boots or Superdrug and there were loads of offers on.

This week I took an exciting trip to the capital of the Netherlands - Amsterdam. I have to admit I was a bit naive of what to expect. In my head I thought it was going to be a small 'pretty' city with a few boring shops, a lot of drugs and the odd prostitute. On my return I realise I couldn't be more wrong and it has now become one of my absolute favourite places. I set out on a mission to discover the cosmetics available in Amsterdam and was completely surprised, not only can you get most of the big brands over there that we get over in England, there is SO MANY cosmetics shops.
One of my first spots was a MAC shop (I can spot them a mile off!) and it was even a MAC PRO store...

So I got another lipstick. It's like a souvenir to me, every time I go to London I buy a mac lipstick. My lack of organisational skills is causing me to keep finding them everywhere. On my most recent trip I got this lovely shade of pink. I wanted a shade that was suitable to casual everyday wear. I already have a few pinks - angel and snob but I they arn't my favourites. This one is called Bombshell and has gone up in my top 3 mac lipsticks.

It's Spring - YAY! Thats means its time for a whole new wardrobe of course. And if you are getting new clothes obviously you need new make up too!
So here is a little post of the top make up trends this summer. And unlike every summer post you ever see mine is set in an autumnal looking park - whoops!

So I vanished for a week, I do apologise. I have a good reason though, this week I had a great time doing the make up for a friends film. I spent the week up in the forest near Portsmouth. About a million insect bites and a few fake bullet wounds later and I am back.
Here is a little look at one of the bullet wounds I created.
