Emmy Fashion Hits!

Hi all!

So the Emmys happened yesterday and of course my eyes were on the fashion! As usual there were some real stand out stars and those that stood out for the wrong reasons! I wanted to share my favourite looks from the red carpet....enjoy!

Tina Fey

Tina wore a gorgeous purple Vivienne Westwood gown with Fred Leighton jewellery. I adore this colour and the detail on the bust, it really looks amazing on her. Well done!

Emily VanCamp

Emily VanCamp wore this chic tulle J Mendel gown with Van Cleef and Arpels jewellery. I love it, the way the fabric drapes is so pretty and I love the detail on the gown. She kept the hair simple which I think was the right idea, and though its not an 'in your face' colour it looks great! P.s if you don't know who Emily is she's on the amazing show called current obsession. I would highly recommend you check it out! lol

 Zoey Deschanel

Zoey looked like Cinderella in her powder blue Reem Acra princess gown. Its just so pretty, I adore the full skirt of the dress and....well I cant say any more! lol

January Jones

January Jones brought the drama at the Emmys red carpet in her Zac Posen dress. Its so gothic and chic she really stood out from the others, most of whom had opted for bright girly outfits. January pulled her hair back and went for smoky eyes to add to the look. She looks like a catwalk model!

Heidi Klum

Supermodel Heidi wore a stunning sea green Alexandre Vauthier gown, showing a lot of skin! But she is Heidi Klum after all so you can't expect anything less (or more!) from her. lol. 

Hayden Panettiere

Hayden wore a blue and gold Marchesa gown. I really like this. She looks great and the dress is so different and so intricate, I love the draping and the colours. Everything about this screams beautiful!

 So there you have it my lovely people, my top looks from the Emmys. Let me know what you think, and which do you like the best??

Whats Chic this Week...

Hi all!

It's been a long and tiring week and I've found I've been oversleeping in the mornings! Which means I don't have a lot of time to put my make-up on. That's why I've been reaching for my chic product of the week, which is....

Mac Face and Body foundation!!

This is honestly the easiest foundation to apply, probably because its quite light and there's no need to spend ages blending! Now I don't have the best skin at all but i still like this foundation. I've been preferring the light look recently as my skin has been playing up and I don't like covering it with a thick foundation.

A great product and I would highly recommend it if you want something quick, easy, light and natural!

Have you used Face and Body, if so what do you make of it?

Fashion Inspiration

Hi all!

I feel so bad for neglecting my blog for so long, sorry guys. I've recently started a new job and its pretty intense which means less time to research and blog about make-up and beauty! :-(

But I'm back today with a little post about some AMAZING clothes I've seen. Lately I've been seeing Erdem everywhere! The clothes have been on loads of celebs and they are beautiful. Here are some pics, and I'm sure you'll agree.

Here's Emma Watson at a premiere

Kate Middleton on tour

Michelle Williams (this is a few months old but great nonetheless)

The floral theme in the Spring Erdem collection is so pretty, i really think they look so girly but chic and fun. A fab collection.

What do you think?

August Nail of the Month - Glitter Marbles

Hi all!

This month I have come across such amazing nail art techniques which give a professional effect on nails. There is one in particular I think looks fantastic and so different and its become my fav look of the month. Here it is....

Soo cute right! I love this look! This is known as the marble/watercolour nail mine may not be as good as others out there but I'm really happy with how they look especially as I'm not the best at nail art! lol Also this was soo easy to achieve, and the fact that it doesn't have to be neat is great...i have trouble staying inside the lines and being neat! ;-)

1. Boots 17 - 'Forever' 2. Rimmel - 'Pop Rose' 3. No.7 - 'Lucky Lilac' 4. MUA - 'Shade 5'

Step 1 -
Apply a nude base colour, for this I used 1. (see above) but you could use any nude colour or white if you'd prefer.

Step 2 -
Once the base has completely dried take any 3 colours you'd like to use for the look, I used 2, 3 and 4 (see above). Then just dap blobs of all 3 colours roughly onto your nails, you don't have to be neat.

Step 3 -
Take cling film or a plastic bag cut up, then place on top on the nail and press gently so that the colours mix together, then remove. Do this with all nails.

5. No.7 Top Coat 6. Chit Chat - 'Gold'

Step 4 - optional
Apply a glitter top coat for added sparkle I used 6 (see above).

Step 5 -
Put on your favourite top coat, I used 5 (see above). Then of course you'll need to do a lot of cleaning up around the nails!

And that's it! You should have fabulous nails which will get a lot of attention, mine did and I loved that people were so intrigued, it was so easy and I got a great result. :-)

Will you be trying this look out?
