A few days ago I wrote about Style Boutique and there Grand Opening (click here). The store was so adorable and cute and they had so many FABULOUS things, I was one of the lucky ones to have received free things! 😀
I even mentioned that I would share my makeup look that I wore that day. I like to call this look a VAMPY look just because of the harsh winged eyeliner with dark berry lips. First I will show you how I achieved my makeup look then I will go on and show you all the GLAMROUS things I was given. Below you’ll find the pictures so keep on reading…
The Vampy Makeup Look:
To get this look I used two eye-shadow pallets, the first one was the Too Faced “Matte Eye Shadow Collection” and the second one is the “Naked 2” Urban Decay pallet. I will go to explain the colours that I used and which brushed I used to apply them. First let me show you the pallets…
The colours from top to bottom (left to right):
- Tufted Suede (used it)
- Chinchilla (used it)
- Coffee Bean
- Velveteen Bunny (used it)
- London Fog
- Fresh Linen
- Vintage Violet
The “Naked 2” pallet from Urban Decay has 12 colours, and out of those 12 I’ve used 3 colours for this look. In the picture bellow you will be able to see the swatch colours.
The swatches from left to right:
- Half baked
For this look I used one of my favorite lipsticks that I tend to use for special or GLAMROUS occasions, and the Grand Opening of Style Boutique is a GLAMROUS EVENT. That is why I had to take out my secret weapon MAC lipstick “What Joy!” satin finish. Sadly this colour was part of their Winter2012 limited edition line, luckily if you like this colour MAC had a lipstick called “Diva” that in their permit line that is close to it.
I just love the berryness (I know that isn’t a word) of this lipstick and it goes great with all skin tones!
I only applied bronzer to my face using MAC “Raizin” blush in matte finish. I didn’t use any pinks or peaches on the apples of my cheeks because the lipstick did the job and brought the colours out of my cheeks.
How to apply this makeup look:
- From the Too Faced pallet apply the colour Chinchilla all over your eyelids til your crease using the Sephora “all over shadow brush
- Just to the crease apply Coffee Bean from the Too Faced pallete and blend it out wards and lower lashes using the MAC 224 brush
- Using the MAC brush 217 apply Velveteen Bunny from the Too Faced pallet on to your brow bones
- Where the eye-shadows Chinchilla and Coffee Bean blend in Snakebite with the MAC 217 brush
- Right under your eyebrows apply Foxy from the Naked 2 pallet using the MAC 219 pencial brush
- With the same brush apply Half Baked to the inner corners of the eyes
- Then I applied my foundation, conceler and presspowder
- After that I applied the MAC blush Raizin to my cheek bones and softly blended it into the apples of my cheeks and forehead using Mikyajy Blusher Brush
- Lastly I applied the lipstick What Joy! on to my lips
Now lets us go to my second part of this blog post, the FABULOUS things that I got from Style Boutique. They are lovely and to die for, plus you have to go and check out their collection or you’ll be missing what’s new in fashion that’s FUN-FRESH and EDGY.
I LOVE this top and the details that is on the bottom. It’s so CUTE you can either dress it up or dress it down. Here I decided I was going to dress down because it was the morning and I was off to university. I wanted to keep it fun with and edgy which results it to be FUNKY! This is something totally new for me, but hey I am young I can do fashion “mistakes” and get away with it. 😀
The so AMAZING shopping on top and just the the FABULOUS items on the botoom! ❤

Valentine’s Day came and I wanted to wear something different. I didn’t want to wear any reds, pinks or whites I wanted to go on a different track. That is when I felt the need to go and be FABULOUS for this LOVE day and have fun and dress in the way that I love. After all I am a fashion lover so more than any other day I HAD TO show it on this day. How better to show my love for fashion than wearing this GLAMROUS gold and black blazer that was long at the back that has black chiffon. It was perfect! To check out more about my V-Day click here.

I had to go early into school because I had some things to do before I went into my class that morning. I just had so much to print out. The problem was that I didn’t have time to pick out what I wanted to wear the night before! So when I woke up that morning I was all over the place trying to get ready, I knew I wanted to wear my flats from Style Boutique but I wasn’t sure with what. Then I told myself my safest bet would be that I wear jeans because they mostly go with everything. At this point I would like to believe that I was right. 😀
