My Top Five Beauty Essentials

April 10, 2017

All girls love make-up, and most of us have a vast collection- but do you have everything that you need? Here are my top five beauty essentials.

 

MAC lipstick in shade ‘Velvet Teddy’

Velvet Teddy is one of the most popular shades of lipstick by MAC, owned by almost every girl, probably because of how pretty the colour is. A beautiful dusky pink shade, this lipstick matches most makeup looks but looks particularly sweet with a nice smoky eye! The formula of the lipstick means it is long lasting and stays on even throughout food and drink. Everyone needs this Mac lipstick in their life.

 

Paco Rabanne ‘Lady Million’ perfume

This perfume has a one in a million scent (pardon the pun) that will stay on your skin for hours. It’s honestly indescribable, but it’s a scent that will keep you coming back for more. With a glamorous, golden bottle, everything about the Lady Million perfume screams luxury. It’s a little on the pricey side but definitely worth the investment. You can even buy a version for men too, so you and your boyfriend can double up and smell great together! 

 

Makeup Revolution Strobe Cream

This strobe cream is unlike anything you will have put on your face before and it will leave you sparkling like a gem all day. The best thing about this is that you can put it all over your face like foundation or just in the select areas you want highlighting, like your cheekbones. It can be worn on top of foundation, underneath it or both, depending on how shimmery you want to be! 

 

Urban Decay eyeshadows

It doesn’t matter which palette you go for; all Urban Decay palettes are total necessities- Naked palettes are some of the most popular, though, although if you can get your hands on a limited edition palette, you should definitely try to do so! The shades in each palette are incomparable and include a variety of both shimmers and mattes, allowing you to use them to create almost any kind of look. 

 

KYLIE Lip Kits

Some people think they’re overrated, but KYLIE Lip Kits by Kylie Jenner are definitely a beauty essential. The colour is long lasting, and the liquid lipstick glides onto lips with ease. What’s handy about the lip kits is that they come with a lip liner and a lipstick- gone are the days of trying to find a pair that match, Kylie has done all the hard work for you!

8 Outfit Ideas for a Trip to the Casino

October 5, 2016

The most important thing to do before visiting a casino is to find out what the dress code is so that you can dress accordingly. However, no matter what the dress code, there is some rules women should keep in mind. Firstly, never have a plunging neckline that shows too much of your chest. Secondly, no dresses/skirts should be higher than the knee. If you break these ‘rules’, you may not be taken seriously in the casino. So here are some things you can wear…

 

A maxi dress

Styled with flats, a patterned maxi dress looks chic and classy. If you opt for a patterned dress, keep accessories to a minimum. If you opt for a plain coloured dress, use accessories, such as large, statement earrings, to give the outfit some pizzazz.

 

Jumpsuit

A full-length jumpsuit can show that you wear the trousers at the table while still maintaining that feminine touch. Opt for a bold colour such as black or red and then use accessories such as a wide fitting belt, a statement necklace or some drop earrings to really glitz up the outfit. 

 

Cocktail dress

Paired with some elegant heels and a coordinating clutch bag, a cocktail dress looks very sophisticated at a casino. It shows that you’re happy to be on a gentleman’s arm as a lucky charm, but also that you know how to play yourself. 

 

A Line Dress

Dresses that cinch in at the waist and have kicking out skirts are very flattering to your figure. Lots of these dresses come with layered skirts so try not to go too overboard with this. Instead, opt for something simple, such as a plain coloured skirt with a lace overlay. 

 

Bodycon dresses

As long as they aren’t too short, bodycon dresses look very sophisticated on women, especially when paired with some classic stiletto heels and some eye-catching jewellery. Bodycon dresses come with long sleeves sometimes, so experiment with which kind of dress looks more impressive. 

 

Pencil skirt

If you aren’t a fan of dresses, pencil skirts make excellent outfits for casinos, particularly when paired with a beautiful blouse or bodysuit. Why not glam the outfit up with a faux fur shrug, or similar? 

 

Tuxedo

For men, a tuxedo is pretty much the only option available. Opt for the classic black or white look or go for a beautiful, light blue colour for something that is a little more casual yet still has some oomph about it. 

 

Shirt and chinos

If the tuxedo isn’t for you, a simple shirt and chino look can look sophisticated enough, as long as you wear the right shoes and the shirt is the right cut and style. Sophistication is key here, and your outfit needs to scream “wealthy”.

James Bond – a man infamous for guns, girls, vodka martinis and suits. It comes as no surprise that when asked what would Bond wear to a casino, the simple and straightforward answer would be “a suit”. But there is no such thing as just “a suit”. There are so many more things to take into consideration, not just about the suit itself but right down to the smaller details, including shoes, cuff links and other finer accessories.
