Hey guys, it’s been a while since I did a post on makeup so here is a quick update for you.
Before I do, can I just say I had my first experience make-up shopping online. I’m very skeptical about colours on me, I’ve never made a purchase without doing a swatch. I’m that girl who sticks to similar shades of lipstick and hardly wears eyeshadow. However, browsing and selecting colours on Just My Look has opened a new cookie jar in the way I shop for makeup or beauty products. They literally stock most of the leading beauty brands and products at reasonably good prices.
So, beauty favourites from Just My Look, let me introduce you to my favourite new lippie, L.A Girl Matte Gloss in Stunner. I’ve seen and heard so much about matte lip glosses, so I finally decided to give it a go. I am a bit late on it right? But better late than never.

Also, I’ve been playing with highlights a lot lately, thanks to Zena. I recently caught up with her and her highlight game was unreal. I decided to give the L.A Girl Highlighter Contour Stick (below) in Luminous a try. The highlight in the pictures above appears to be quite subtle – more like lowlight huh, but it’s more luminous in the sun. I wanted it to look a little bit more natural since I was going for a strong lip colour.

The setting powder is totally new to me. I’m so 2000andlate right?! With a few youtube videos, I’m sure I’ll know exactly what to do with it. I’m pretty excited to give all these new bits a go.
I’m open to suggestions and beauty tips. All you lovely readers who are pros or know one or two things about makeup, comment or drop me a line on twitter!
