OOTD: Emerald Lace & MOTD Peachy Nude

Hello Everyone,  Today's outfit of the day is one of my all time favourites! I love how it fits me and feels on, It's so comfortable to wear and yet still stylish.  The whole outfit is from Target with the belt coming from Forever21, It's amazing the great clothes you'll find at Target these days, it's fashionable as well as affordable. Thank goodness they became more fashion savvy in the last few years too! Come cheaper fashion that still looks good to great to amazing to wear, got to love that. :-) This is a whole set "outfit" and I brought it a few months back when Emerald and Army Green was the "rage" in the color department, not a real fan of the Army Green color, but the Emerald is a favourite color I like to wear, and thought out the years have done so. I remember it all started with an Emerald green jumper I brought for the winter, 8 years back!! ahhh I loved that thing, but that's getting off topic!

I was cleaning up my makeup collection the other day and re-found my MAC Paint Pots. Now once upon a time these were my Holy Grail (HG) eye colour bases and sort of Eye Primers I would use close to everyday if not everyday at one point in time for me.
Then Maybelline came out with the Color Tattoo's and for some reason the MAC Paint Pots found there way in the forget basket. 
Upon rediscovering these a few days back, I started using these again this week, I must say I really missed some of the amazing colors that come in the MAC collection of Paint Pots. Just the beauty of Rubenesque with it's gold, peachy almost coral look and satin finish on the eyes when applied and then toped with a matching eyeshadow, there sometimes is nothing better then just matching colors of the same colour family for your eye makeup, Pe…

TUTORIAL: LADY ZORRO Inspired Makeup Look - Halloween 2013

Hello Everyone.
Here's my 1st Halloween Makeup look of the year! I was inspired to do this look! As a child I love the Zorro Movies and was very interested in making a female version of this classic look. This is very much a more edgy 1940's \1950's look and I find that it works perfectly for this female fatal (Lady) Zorro Makeup!
