Coral is the Colour

If you know me you will know I adore coral makeup...If you don't, I adore coral makeup!!!

I am like a magpie if it has the word coral in it I will more than likely buy it!!!
Coral is such a versatile colour and used correctly will suit any skin tone given you find the right shade. I am lucky in that being a pale English rose most coral tones suit me so I don't have to be so careful in my choosing!!!

Here are a couple of my cute coral collection

Let me introduce me in to my favorite ever nail polish...elf fire coral
elf Fire Coral Nail Polish
With a medium consistency, and a perfectly sized applicator for the 3 stroke method (one down the middle and one down either side) this is perfect even for those of us with a not so steady hand when applying polish. It is highly pigmented and defiantly not for the faint hearted, in one coat you can get a really good coverage with no streaks, I love that if I'm in a rush I can do this however for staying power I recommend two coats and a top coat, also due to the pigmentation a base coat is essential if you don't want yellow nails when you remove it (who does!!!). I always use OPI start to finish for my base and top coat and my nails pretty much always last a week which is fantastic as I dislike the boring task of removing polish!!!

A new coral favorite of mine is an eyeshadow by Models Own it, This company is a new find of mine thanks to another makeup addicted friend. I have brought some nail polishes (five!!!) which I will be talking about in the future but for now back to the eyeshadow which is Metallic Coral

This comes in a glass pot and is full to the brim with gorgeously pigmented eyeshadow!!! unfortunately it doesn't come with a sifter so I purchased some separately from ebay...Cheap as chips, this isn't necessary but I know I can be messy so I decided I would save my carpet and get some!!!

I used this the other day in a coral inspired look and it was perfect, supper pigmented and really easy to blend, I actually preferred to use my fingers for this product to pack it on. would you like a tutorial on this easy coral look??? Let me know.

Date Face

Lately I have been on a few dates...Dipping my toe back in the pool after a long time single and very happy but everyone loves a good date and if something comes of it then great

When on a date it can be hard to find a look that isn't too over the top but at the same time you want to look like you made an effort right...No use turning up looking like a barbie doll!!!

I went on a second date at the weekend, a daytime date at the bowling alley and a bite to eat...Not my first choice but it was raining!!!

Here was my date look
for me this is a really simple pretty look which I feel is key when dating...I don't like to be too bold and scare them away!!!

Its been a while...

I feel really guilty that I haven't posted in such a long time!!!

I've had a few things going on, I wont go in to detail....But it's also me being lazy...

So anyway Ive decided that my top 10 changes far too often for me to continue on this path...I think sometimes it can take some time to find your blogging style, my subject is clear my style is still unknown to me so I will be trying out a few different styles, reviews maybe a tutorial here and there...A real mixture until I find the one thing that suits me best!!!

I hope you all are well and will read and support whilst I experiment with my writing style!!!
