Hey Everyone!

December has come around and it’s finally time to lug out the Christmas tree from it’s year long hibernation, bring out the wreathes and dusty Christmas carol books and bring in the Christmas joy. A few months ago, I came across the blog and youtube channel of Say, from youtube.com/saytiocoartillero and www.saytiocoartillero.blogspot.com and I fell in love with Say’s personality and blog!

Hi Roseanne’s readers!

While many of you in the Southern hemisphere are about to enjoy the rays and the beaches, us up north are preparing to wrap ourselves in wool in as many forms as possible! I do miss the summer, so Roseanne’s let me invade her space to bring you a summer look – very nostalgic ;)

I don’t really want to call this a cliche “bronze goddess” look – but it is!

Hey Everyone,

I know it’s still early November but it’s never a shame to start preparing for the Holidays early and I’m not talking just Christmas either, Thanksgiving, Fall and Autumn leaves are just as good a reason to celebrate. Whenever I think of the Holidays, I think of hot cocoa next to a warm fire with silent night playing in the background.

Hey Everyone!

The Urban Decay Naked Palette is one of the most talked about palettes that has ever hit online makeup shores. And, it’s to no suprise. If you’re like me, let’s face it. No matter how many tutorials there are telling you how to apply those intense and ultra funky colors of the rainbow on your lids, the only thing that’s going to see you during the day time with ultra colorful eyes is your own vanity mirror.

Hey Everyone!

I’ve never had really dark under-eye circles fortunately, but unfortunately I receive many questions on how you can eliminate these often annoying flaws. The truth is, I’m not an expert. I’m not an expert because I don’t get them often so when I woke up one day and looked into the mirror to see them flashing back at me, I yelled in excitement for this was an opportunity to well, “eliminate” them.

Hey Everyone,

I honestly think we need some epic music right about now. The time has come to depott my primer potion. I’ve seen blog posts and I’ve seen videos in the past so with basically nothing coming out on the wand of my UDPP and no retail counter to purchase my beloved primer at, I took out a cutting board, a sharp knife and looked at the bottle with kind eyes, ready to say “Goodbye”.

Hey Everyone!

I’ve only recently had one of those days. You’ve just finished a full day of uni, you’re dead tired, your hair is flopped down and your make-up is pretty much non-existant. As you’re waiting to cross the street, the man of your dreams comes walking towards you, you peer into the glass pane behind you to see how you look and probably one word comes to your mind, “S***”.

Hey Everyone,

I remember when I Iearnt to contour, highlight and apply my blush, I knew that it would be a step I never wanted to miss. Contouring and applying that bronzer adds a certain warmth to your look while being able to slim down your features without the surgery, blush gives a healthy radiance while the highlight attracts a muted glow to the areas you want shining in the spotlight.

Oh and a few days ago, Urban Decay sent me the following things :) that sparked me to do a review on the Urban Decay eyeshadows. I think though the best way to demonstrate eyeshadows was to do a tutorial and its up there :) Urban Decay Eyeshadows are so pigmented and highly blendable because they have minimal amounts of binders and fillers that equates to pigmented and vivid colors.
