Chanel Ombre Première Eyeshadows

thumbnail_IMG_2130

I recently visited the Chanel counter in Boots and was lucky enough to try out the new Ombre Premiere Eyeshadow Collection. The collection features two new textures, cream and powder, both with a long lasting effect. There are 24 shades in the collection, with multiple finishes, including matte, metalic and satiny.

When I arrived at the counter, the regional makeup artist for Chanel greeted me and introduced me to the new range. She then began matching up the colours best suited to my skin tone and eye colour. As I have greeny/blue eyes, she was looking to match me with a colour that would make my eye colour pop and brighten my eyes.

 

We decided to use both textures using a layering effect in order to create a soft smoky eye. The shades she picked were Sable 28 and Desert Rouge 36 in the powder range, along with Pourpre Profond 810 and Scintillance 804 in the cream range.

I was amazed at how pigmented the shadows were and I love the way the cream and powder eyeshadows blended perfectly.

The look was completed with the Le Gel Sourcils Eyebrow Gel in Transparent 350 and the Imitable Intense Mascara in Noir 10.

I am in love with the new range and I was so impressed with my finished look. The product did not budge all day, so I was happy to invest in this amazing range.

It didn’t take long to apply these products and I would feel comfortable in this look in both the day and night.

The shades are incredible and I would definitely recommend you try out these products.

Lace in Fashion -Fashion Museum Bath

Last week I was lucky enough to attend a sneak preview of the Lace in Fashion exhibition at The Fashion Museum in Bath. The exhibition runs from February 4th 2017 until the January 1st 2018.

“Drawing on the riches of the Fashion Museum’s collection, as well as generous loans from contemporary fashion designers, the exhibition showcases 50 exquisite pieces, showing how lace has been used in fashion from the 1500s to the present day.”

On arrival we were welcomed with refreshments and had a chance to admire the collection whilst waiting for everyone to arrive. We were then given an amazing tour of the collections, enabling us to revisit the history behind each piece.

It was interesting to see how lace had began as a hand made art, taking hours to complete and only to be worn by the wealthiest of people. Many of the pieces we visited included collars and cuffs, carefully designed and perfected by delicate hand made lace.

It was amazing to see how far lace had come in terms of both technology and fashion. Lace can now be easily found on both the high street and catwalk, which makes it interesting to see how it has transformed throughout the years.

There are many collections to see, featuring some interesting and inspiring work.  Glamorous pieces come into play throughout the exhibition and there are some beautiful dresses which definitely caught my eye.

Cheap Ass Sunglasses – Hollywood Review

Yesterday I was delighted to come home and find that my delivery from Cheap Ass Sunglasses had arrived! I had ordered a pair of Hollywood sunglasses, which I fell in love with straight away. I was so pleased with my purchase that I couldn’t wait to try them out!

As it was a lovely day, a friend and I decided to spend the afternoon at Cardiff Bay in the sun. These sunglasses arrived at the perfect time as the weather in Cardiff is starting to heat up, which means that I will be able to make the most out of these stylish sunglasses.

Not only are they the perfect addition to a fabulous outfit, but these sunglasses are 100% UV Protected and were under £10! The delivery service of these glasses were excellent and I will definitely be purchasing another pair from their website.

If you’re looking to try out a new pair of sunglasses for a summer holiday or just everyday use, I would definitely recommend that you take a look on their website and try out a pair for yourself – you won’t be dissappointed!
