Embellie Gellie Giveaway Announcement

Sorry for the lateness of my reply! Time got away from me and then I couldn't find time to make this little video! But anyway, as with my previous giveaway used a random number generator to get the winning comment. So here it is…

The random number generator game me this result.

And it matches up to this comment.

Ms. Blitz has changed her name to LADY BLITZ but the comment still matches her youtube account.

Enjoy your Embellie Gellie!

For the rest of you, if you want to get some of your own check out the Scraperfect website.

This was a sponsored giveaway thanks to Amy at Scraperfect, but only as far as the prize. My opinions and usage of Embellie Gellie should be pretty obvious if you've seen any of my videos with rhinestones and other sparkles!

Gold Leaf Cheetah Lip Art ft Born Pretty, Coloured Raine & Eye Kandy

I bought some gold leaf from born pretty store and I was thinking of a way to play around with it and I came up with a lip art that kind of reminds me of a cheetah print pattern. I added a purple and blue base of lipstick to the gold leaf to add a cool contrast to the warm gold and also created a gold glitter outline around the lips for added interest.

Enjoy!

GRWM Rolling Stones Gig Makeup ft Sugarpill & Urban Decay

I'm heading out to the Rolling Stones gig tonight and created this make up look inspired by the red, white and black colours that their famous lips and tongue logo sports. I used my favourite shadow from the Urban Decay pallet called Slowburn and a mixed that with Love+ from Sugarpill and a bit of shimmer on the lid too. I went heavy on the lower lashline with some black and didn't go for the winged liner one would usually expect, to change it up and focus on the rounded crease shape.


Enjoy!
