Valentine’s Day is next weekend and some of you girls will have a cute date lined up where as some of us girls will just be chilling and marking it as another day of the year. I’ll be going to Bluewater shopping centre this V Day as it’s also my sister’s birthday which I’m really happy about as I need to get an outfit for London Fashion Weekend.

OOTN: NYE 

Happy 2016! I hope this year brings you blessings, success and happiness. I’ve always loved the feeling of starting fresh. Every year I write a list of goals I want to achieve in the next 365, (this year 366) days. 

As I recently turned 18, I spent my night at a club in Brighton with some of the girls. One thing that’s really surprised me is that no matter how far you venture out you always bump into people you know, so I got to spend some time with old friends too. 

 

Jumpsuit: Missguided, Heels and Cuff: Primark, Rings: Topshop


It’s a common fact that I’m obsessed with black clothes; it mixes and matches with so many other colours! I decided to paint my nails a dark berry red and add some sparkly accessories to make it stand out. 
For the glam, I opted for my trademark smokey eye and nude lips. My makeup collection has grown rapidly, so I’ll post some reviews soon. 

Makeup Details:

Base: Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup mixed with L’Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation

Contour and Highlight: Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour Cream Kit and Pro Series Contour (powder) Kit 

Strobing: Benefit Watt’s Up! highlighter

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

Eyes: Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, Benefit They’re Real! Push-Up Liner on the lashline and waterline, Eylure Volume 101 with  L’Oréal False Lash Telescopic mascara. 

Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

   

 

Molicia Mondays: Strobing Like A Star For Less 🌟

  
Evening all. I recently discovered the gems that Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic uses for her flawless strobing. 

It comes to no surprise that the star uses the ultimate high-end products to achieve ultimate glam. She starts with Benefit Watts Up highlighter for a creamy base and follows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator for solid shine. 

I’m not claiming to be any sort of expert BUT after some experimentation I found a way to achieve a similar glow for a lot less! 

 

Urban Decay Naked 2 palette

 
As Kim does, I use the Benefit Watts Up highlighter on my nose and above my cheek bones in a C formation that starts above the arch of the brow and finishes above the cheekbones. 

I then use Half Baked, a golden shade from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette and trace over the C shape. 

All to do next is to dust off the excess product and voila! You have a simple substitute to the ABH Illuminator that you probably never realised you had. Of course, you can do this with any gold eyeshadow you have.

  

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

OOTD: As Dark As My Eyes

2015/01/img_1219.png

College is so so exhausting. The cold weather doesn’t help either. I’ve always struggled with what to wear during winter, but you can pretty much wear anything as long as you wear a huge fluffy coat!

Today, I opted for all black (as usual). Teaming my Alexander Wang x H&M cropped jumper with a black midi skirt. I didn’t wear the coat in the picture because I hate how it dilutes the detail from my top!

What better way to match a dark outfit with dark makeup and a dark mood. As number 1 fan of the smokey, I’d be totally lost without the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2. This look was achieved by using Foxy on the brow bone, Tease and Snakebite on the lid, Busted on the crease and lower lid, Bootycall on the tear duct and YDK on the lower lash line.

After that, I applied the Benefit Push Up Liner to create a wing, followed by a Rimmel London kohl pencil on my water line. Finished off with a pair of my holy grail Eyelure lashes in 107.

It seems like such an effort to make just to go to college, but doing this makes me feel so much better about myself! And even if you have a pretty shitty day like I did, at least you know you looked good through it!

I hope your day was better than mine and let me know what you think today’s glam ✨

Unwrapped: The Naked 2

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b4c/76193782/files/2014/12/img_0710.png

Since I started watching make up tutorials via YouTube a few years ago, I noticed EVERY makeup guru had a golden palette that is the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I dreamed of the day that I would eventually own one and thanks to my amazing best friend, my fantasies have finally come true.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b4c/76193782/files/2014/12/img_0716.jpg

I’ve already spent sooooo much time experimenting with this! Today, I thought my second trail run was good enough to share with you guys.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b4c/76193782/files/2014/12/img_0712.jpg

I apply: Foxy to my brow bone to highlight, bootycall all over my lid, tease under my lower lash line and over my crease, snake bite and chopper in the middle of my lid. Along with the finishing touches of L’oreal Paris the blackbuster eyeliner and Eyelure lashes in 107.

My only criticism of this gorgeous and sultry eye shadow palette is that to really make your look perfect, you should buy a suitable eyeshadow primer for creaseless staying power. Included in with the pallette was 4 samples of Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion which I haven’t used yet.

Hope you’ve had a fab Christmas!
