Black Denial-B Sandals Betts

I have been lusting after theses heavy duty sandals for months and I have shoe envy whenever I pass any Betts or pass someone wearing them.

They are a statement shoe and I had ‘will they suit me’ doubts so I could not justify the $89.99 price tag
However that all changed when they went into the end of season sale for $19.99 that is roughly £14
I mean thats on par with Primark prices so I snapped them up.
Yes they may not be everyone’s cup of Chai latte but I adore them
They are super comfy and add something different to the simplest of outfits
The buckle and strap tip are gun metal grey so these can be worn with silver or gold jewellery and hardware

The Jeans are a staple and the jacket I’ve had for years. It’s a lightweight alternative to my leather biker.

When M.U.A’s Play…

DSC00955

I’m a big fan of natural makeup, but sometimes it’s nice to glam things up, just because it’s a Thursday
– or just because you went to see Rihanna and now feel every bit the empowered siren!
It’s so easy to get stuck in a makeup rut, wearing the same shades and tones,
(I am a naked basics girl 90% of the time)
However I thought I would share this look that a M.U.A friend of mine did for me.

@ came round and we had a fab girly day
Involving hot chocolate, online shopping, more coffee than should really be consumed and make overs
The resulting look a beautiful, but more importantly wearable orange eye and flawless skin.

Starting with M.A.C Paint Pot in Painterly as a base all over the lid
then going straight in with a vibrant orange from Sleek I-DIVINE EYESHADOW PALETTE IN ULTRA MATTES V1 over the top, patting, blending, repeat until the colour popped
The same shade was taken under the lid for balance
The rest of the eye is exactly the same as I usually wear
A warm toned brown above the crease, I love my M.A.C Bronzing Powder in Matte Bronze for this
M.A.C Pro Long wear Eyeshadow in Make Your Mark in the crease as well as the outer corners
Then finished with a liquid liner and black mascara
My base is Chanel Vitalumiere
With M.A.C Select Coverup Concealer under my eyes, blended well
To contour Shauna used M.A.C Select Cover-up concealer 2 shades darker than my skin tone which gave such a subtle blend-able contour that looks incredibly natural
Finishing off with M.A.C Mineralise Skin Finish in Light under eye and through the T zone and then M.A.C Mineralise Skin Finish in Medium Plus over the contour and around the perimeters of the face.
I absolutely love the finished look and think the orange works wonders with my blue eyes.
