Orange and Purple Sunset Eyes

How fun and colourful is today's look?! I absolutely love it. I very rarely wear colourful looks, but I'll make an exception for these sunset eyes. I bought some e.l.f eyeshadows a few weeks back (Sunset & Amethyst) and I've been dying to use them but just didn't know what to do, so I just sat down to film with them and a comment a subscriber left on one of my videos popped into my head; 'You should do a sunset look!' Boom. Inspired. (See, your comments do matter!)

Champagne Eyes with a Bold Lip

Can you tell I didn't know what to call this? Hahah.
This look is basically the look I was wearing in my April Favourites video. A tutorial was heavily requested so here it is!

Stahma Tarr Inspired Look

Recently I've been loving the TV show Defiance. Ever since watching the first episode Stahma Tarr has been my favourite character and I love love love how she looks, so I've been dying to do a video on the makeup. I decided to go for more of an inspired look because her makeup changes a little bit from week to week, but I'm sure if you wanted to cosplay her this kind of makeup would help make it really obvious who you are supposed to be. I hope you like it! And if you're not watching Defiance I would really recommend it!

Smokey Blue Galaxy Eyes

Last week I decided to buy a bunch of MUA makeup and I instantly fell in love with their Dusk til Dawn Palette. Like most palettes and makeup collections, there are hits and misses, but I'll post some swatches a some mini-reviews up on here when I'm back home from London. I hope you like the look I created! I decided to just wing it and I was really happy with the result.

Daenerys Targaryen / Khaleesi Makeup Tutorial

I finally gave in to the pressure and started watching Game of Thrones! Naturally I wanted to play dress up afterwards. It's a very no-makeup makeup look, so it's difficult to actually resemble her unless you're similar looking to her anyway, but that doesn't mean to can't try the makeup!

Benjabelle Brush Trees

I mentioned Brush Trees in my April Favourites video, and I really wanted to do a blog post on them because I think they're a genius idea! 
I'd seen them before in a few YouTube videos and really wanted to get my hands on them, so when Jan from Benjabelle got in touch with me and asked me if I wanted to try them out, I couldn't have been more excited!

April Favourites

I filmed my first 'Favourites' video! Hopefully I'll be uploading more of these in the future. Like I said in the video, I don't buy enough things to be able to film them every month, so I'll probably just upload them every few months or so. All the products are listed and linked up in the description on the video page, but if you click 'Read more' below this post I'll list them there, too. I hope you enjoy the video and thanks for taking the time to watch!
