Gaming Gals Make-up Musts!

Hi Everyone! :) Today I wanted to try something a little different, combining my two passions; video games and cosmetics!

Outside the adventures and/or being rescued, these girls in video games always know their own style and how to look good. I wanted to think about what the girls would wear if they lived in the “real world”, what brands would they choose and what would be their holy grail item? What polish would they wear? What perfume? Well these are what I think they are! Remember it’s just a bit of fun :)

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo, Chanel: Coco Mademoiselle, Yves Saint Laurent Everlong Waterproof Mascara, MAC: Viva Glam Gaga

For the Princess that has everything, Princess Peach likes to keep her golden locks bright and her smile a soft bubblegum pink. It’s all important to keep her flirty lashes long and luscious to make sure she’s rescued (and kidnapped again! ;)). Holy Grail item: MAC lipstick in Viva Glam Gaga.

Vera Wang: Princess, Mac Lustreglass in Love Nectar, Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner: Blank Ink, MAC Eyeshadow: Naked Lunch

For the smart, sophisticated Princess Zelda, she uses subtle lips and nude eyes twinned with classic black kitten flick. Her perfume is floral which is enchanting, playful and sexy. Holy Grail item: Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner.

Kenzo: Flower by Kenzo, Revlon Matte Lipstick: Pink Pout, OPI: Hopelessly In Love, Benefit: Girl Meets Pearl

Aeris is free-spirited and positively glows when she smiles. With subtle nails, a soft pink lip and a glowing complexion she charms everyone she meets. Holy Grail item: Benefit Girl Meets Pearl.

Anna Sui: Secret Wish, John Frieda Frizz Ease: Straight Ahead Style Activating Shampoo, LUSH: Helping Hands hand cream, Max Factor: False Lash Effect Mascara, Estée Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick: Crystal Baby

Tifa is a strong independent girl who works hard but is shy with her real feelings. Secret Wish is her fragrance with fruity notes and which is feminine and carefree. Tifa’s lovely locks falls to her waist and she keeps it in tip top condition. Tifa’s fighting style is with close-combat and so keeps her hands nice and soft with Lush’s Helping Hands. Holy Grail item: John Frieda Frizz Ease: Straight Ahead Style Activating Shampoo.

Dior: Hypnotic Poison, Illamasqua lipstick: Diablo, Illamasqua Cream Pigment: Mould, Illamasqua: S.O.P.H.I.E. Pencil, OPI: Ink

Lulu’s distinct style is sexy and mysterious. Her style shouts black mage crossed with a fashion model. Her perfume is magical and bold and twinned with her mysterious deep dark eyes and smoky black liner gives Lulu her smouldering look. Holy Grail item: Illamasqua Cream Pigment: Mould.

Dior: Dune, Urban Decay: Naked Palette, Bobbi Brown: Everything Lip Kit, NARS: Blush Bronzer Trio, OPI: Nail Envy

For the girl on the go, Lara knows exactly what she needs to take with her when she travels the world with a collection of handy palettes. She may be getting her hands dirty but she still looks after her nails with OPI’s Nail Envy. Holy Grail item: Urban Decay: Naked Palette.

Ed Hardy: Original Women, WELLA SP Colour Save Shampoo, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick: Boy, MAC eyeshadow: Satin Taupe

Lightning is head-strong and fierce. soft taupe eyes and gentle Chanel Boy on the lips show off her softer side. To keep her gorgeous pink hair looking great, Lightning uses WELLA SP Colour Save Shampoo. Her fragrance is fruity and floral including wild strawberries.  Holy Grail item: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick: Boy.

Who’s your favourite gaming gal and what do you think would she keep in her make up bag? Let me know in the comments below! :)

Until next time, have fun! :D

Mario’s Magic Mushrooms

Hi Everyone! :)

I had a meeting for work yesterday with a certain video games company and wanted to do some themed nails and came across these mario mushroom nails from cute polish and thought they’d be perfect! :D I thought i’d try the red mushrooms instead as I don’t have a great green colour like her (guess i’ll have to get one!).

  • OPI: Alpine Snow
  • Nails Inc: Eccleston Mews
  • Seche Vite Top Coat

Do check out Cute Polish’s tutorial for these nails below! :)

Until next time, have fun! :D

Black Pearl Chic

Hi Everyone! :) The world didn’t end, yay!

As we get to live another day, I thought I’d play with glitter. I decided on a rock-chic look and reached for my bottle of Chanel Black Pearl and my Lancome glitter topcoat from the spring collection. I added a few gems to both thumbs for good measure.

  • Chanel: Black Pearl
  • Lancome: Disco Silver (Spring ’11)
  • Silver nail art gems

Have you created any “its not the end of the world” manis? If so then I’d love to see them! Let me know in the comments below :D

A Crackled Peach

Hi Everyone! :) Hope you are all well and enjoying the month of May (my birthday month, yay!)

I keep reaching for my bottle of Illamasqua Purity but I wanted to try something a bit different and thought I’d give it a bit of a twist with crackle polish and black french.

  • Illamasqua: Purity
  • Barry M: Black shatter polish
  • George: Deceit (Black)

I’m really tempted to pick up the other Barry M crackle polishes, especially the pink and blue, i’ll have to take advantage of the Superdrug 2 for £5 on Barry M polishes atm!

Talking of Superdrug, don’t forget to pick up the new beauty card, it’s like the boots advantage card where you collect a points from your purchases and you can even get 10 points per pound online.

Girly Glitter Type

Hi Everyone! :)

I really can’t believe it’s May already, this year has flown by!! After a lovely 11 days off with the bank holidays its back to work. I absolutely can not believe I went a whole week without painting my nails!! Well its back to it!

I picked up the M.A.C Little Girl Type polish from the quite cute collection and received the quite cute limited edition badges with my purchase! :D While stock lasts and the Quite Cute collection is available on the M.A.C site, any purchase from this collection gets you these little beauties. :)

The colour is a lovely soft lilac and I thought I would work it up with some Nails Inc Park Lane for a french.

  • MAC: Little Girl Type
  • Nails Inc: Park Lane
  • Andrea Fulerton: Gemstone Overcoat

Until next time, have fun! :D
