Glitter looks-Summer 2016.

Summer is here, and that means it’s time for festivals, holidays, pool parties, for the jumpers to go into hibernation and for the short-shorts to show off butt cheeks once again.

This summer has already been so much fun!

IBIZA>PRIDE IN LONDON > BEYONCE>LOVEBOX FESTIVAL.

It’s been opportunity after opportunity after opportunity to cover my face in the glitter collection i have accumulated.

So here are just some of my favourite Glitter looks i have created this year…

First Up:

Ibiza provided the perfect party palace for me to cover myself (and Scott) in all the glitter our little faces could handle.

First up is this purple hazed look i created for Amnesia.

 After spending all day at the HOLI festival of colour we decided why not stop the party and head out to Amnesia. Opting to be completely different from the bright neon powders we had just finished throwing all over each other and the little silver stars i had previously used on the outside of my eyes here:

I went for a deep purple and bronzed look.
I used the Chunky purple holographic hexagon glitter pots and lightly dotted around the outer edge of my eyes, i used a little of the same glitter in gold when going closer to the centre of the eye. This paired with the dark purple Mac Viva Glam Ariana Grande lipstick made the perfect night time sparkle.

Next up it was time to head out to Space to our Elrow Bollywood themed night.this immediately set us up for the perfect reason to go to town with all the glitter we could find.

So we did, just that. I took the Chunky Hexagon silver glitter pot and using the stargazer face glue i created a boomerang from above the arch of my brow to the top of my cheek bone.I also added some of the NYX cosmetics face and body glitter to fill in the gaps, and a mix of the two along the parting in my hair. To finish this look we used stick on gems to create exaggerated shapes on the centre of our foreheads for the extra sparkle.Side note: Pay attention to Scotts eyebrows for all your glitter needs.

(Incase you were wondering the gems did not last the night but the glitter was strong and stayed on until the morning came around)

Next up: Pride in London.

It’s like this summer gave me nothing but good excuses to paint glitter wherever i could. PRIDE, was another reason for this. For this look i used NYX cosmetics face and body glitter to recreate the same boomerang shape, as a foundation. This time with it being pride i decided to use my own interpretation on the LGBTQ rainbow and Mylar Ice Flakes in multicolour. Starting closest to the ear i took a lot of the flakes and spread them out towards both ends of the glitter base.


Beyonce.


The Formation world tour, or as i would describe it, the day the Queen SLAYED. For this concert i used the chunky gold hexagon glitter pot i had and placed a rectangular strip across the sides of both eyes to try and re-create a BeeHive in honour of Beyonce’s BeyHive. This may be the most simple look i have done this summer but i truly enjoyed what it represents.

LOVEBOX FESTIVAL.

London’s very own Lovebox festival provided me with what i actually think is my favourite look this summer.

This time i used A LOT OF HAIR GEL and more of the NYX cosmetics face and body glitter to cover the partings in my hair and frame the braids of my hairstyles. Up next i used small stargazer spectrum silver stars to create a galaxy in my hair and topped it off with some simple stars from those packs you can get at a card shop to use as confetti. I thought that because i went incredibly OTT with the glitter in my hair i had better tone it down with my face, well, that was the plan. I did however keep adding to it.

I started off by creating the line using stick on gems from Claire’s Accessories. I then used 2mm hexagon mylar ice in white iridescent to pad out the line and make it shine, for that final sparkle i added just a few of the stars along the line. I think this created the perfect amount of face to hair glitter ratio!

BONUS LOOK:

This one i like to call the Alien.


So what was this look for i hear you ask?
Well, this look was for absolutely nothing.
Yep, nothing.
This was the result of my boredom and i think, i may just love it.

Let me know in the comments which look is your favourite ūüėė

What’s top of the playlist this month?

Hello everyone, It’s back, it’s been quite a while now since i last did this kind of post because admittedly i’ve been listening to more podcasts than Spotify but i thought i’d give you a quick update of what’s on my latest playlist.

1. SIA.
Again, like every other playlist post i do, i will start with Sia.
Taken from her This is Acting album is my new favourite; Cheap Thrills.
Favourite Lyric; ‘baby i don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight’
I just love this song. It’s guranteed to make you dance, as with all Sia songs i instantly fell in love with the lyrics, her voice, EVERYTHING. Sia never fails to make incredible music i’m always obsessed with at least one/two/three songs on her new albums and this time, it’s Cheap Thrills.

2.DIE ANTWOORD.
I’m here again obsessed with the weird and wonderful sounds from Die Antwoord.
in particular; I Fink U Freeky / Baby’s on Fire.
Favourite Lyric:I fink u freeky and I like you a lot /Don’t worry ’bout it, just blow a kiss to me.¬†I like danger, romance and mystery.¬†I’m a lucky ducky, get mad shit for free.¬†I rock more bling than Mr. T.
There is something about these two songs that make me want to go to the nearest party available and dance. It’s the kind of music you can release your inner bitch out of, get weird and let go.

3.ELLIE GOULDING.
Ok so quite the opposite to my other choices this one is
Devotion – Acoustic Version.
Favourite Lyric:Cause this is devotion, I am lost,¬†You’re the only one I see,¬†Our bodies in motion, I am caught,¬†Floating in your gravity
I recently saw Ellie Goulding in concert and was blown away by the acoustic version of this that she performed. It’s incredibly beautiful and 1000%better than the version released on her Delirium album. Such an honest raw and emotional song with beautiful lyrics.

4.ARIANA GRANDE
Ariana is back and this is a killer song.
Dangerous Woman.
Favourite Lyric: Somethin’ ’bout you makes me feel like a dangerous woman.
Somethin’ ’bout, somethin’ ’bout, somethin’ ’bout you.
Ariana i love this song. Now correct me if i’m wrong but doesn’t it make you feel empowered when you listen to this. Ready to conquer the world? It definitely does for me. It has the same vibe as what Bad Blood gives off, only with Ariana’s insane vocals. That girl can saaaaaaaang.

5.ZARA LARSSON.
This may just be my new getting ready song, it’s so damn catchy.
Lush Life.
Favourite lyric:Yeah Imma dance my heart out ’til the dawn,¬†But I won’t be done when morning comes,¬†Doin’ it all night, all summer,¬†Gonna spend it like no other
Ok so it’s not the most genius of songs, but it’s got the perfect summer vibe to it, it’s so catchy and i just love this girls voice. It makes me want to grab a bag and pop off on holiday. Yes Please.

6. BEYONC√Č / LEMONADE.

Now let’s be real there is no way this album wasn’t going to be on here! It’s beyond incredible. I don’t think I can pick just one favourite song never mind one line of lyrics.
Also a video…A VIDEO. SLAY BEYONCE SLAYYYYYYYYY.
