All about Adele!

Well it was all about Adele at last nights Grammy Awards.  Nabbing 6 awards she walked away with Song of th Year, Album of the Year, Short Video of the Year, Performance of the Year, and Pop Vocal Album.   I think she looked amazing donning a sexy red lip and her usual feature of think full lashes and  of course her beautiful Armani gown.

I was also a fan of Carrie Underwood look, and absolutely loved her makeup.  Loving the full lashes x

 

 

Globe Beauty – Charlize Theron

For me by far the most beautiful lady that rocked the red carpet at the Golden Globes was Charlize Theron.  She looked like an absolute goddess!  From her hair ( nor to forget her Cartier hairband!!) to her makeup to her Dior gown, I thought that it looked absolutely stunning and effortless!  Her makeup look was natural looking, radiant and she just glowed! Perfect for any Bride to Be!!

Her Makeup artist was Shane Paish for Dior and he used the following:

  • Skin: Dior L’Or de Vie La Creme, Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation.
  • Eyes: Dior 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow in Garden Roses #841, Diorshow Extase Mascara.
  • Lips: Rouge Dior Lipcolor in Tulip Pink #448, Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Beige Tweed #227.
  • Cheeks: Diorblush in Pink in Love #889.

To achieve the look with your own foundation you could also use:

Lips – Blankety by MAC

Eyes: All that Glitters by MAC, Great lash mascara by Maybelline

Cheek – Nude peach by Bobbi Brown

And good full shaped brows.

Birdcages II

I know I blog a lot about headpieces and birdcages, but I love them and I love how they look. I just wanted to post some more of my Brides that I have had that went for this look.  Maire and Aislings cage veil were fastened to a hairband whereas Eileen and Gillian below’s pieces are both birdcages and are made by the ever so talented Rebekah Patterson in Kilkenny, who I also got to make a piece for my own wedding. I cannot sing her praises enough.

I LOVE: Birdcage Veils

And I have come across this site and I literally am obsessed with it.  No lie!!

http://www.tigerlillyjewelry.com/  they are US based, but they ship worldwide.  Some of their items are pretty pricey, but others are very reasonable.  They have vintage and traditional pieces and come in all shapes and forms.  Some of my fave ones from the site below.

They also have a wide range of clips, combs and headbands as well as jewellery.  Definately worth having a look if you are looking for something a little different!

PS. I am also loving the red lippy in the pics, again bringing through the vintage look!

Happy Browsing 🙂
