Top tip for soft, kissable lips!

I'm sure nearly every one suffers from dry lips in the winter... so a here's a top tip for keeping lips soft, kissable and sexy:

1)Get ur favorite lip balm, (u can also alternatively use simple vaseline for this too.)
My fave lip balm is definately carmex mint

Put a pea size amount into ur palm

2)Get just under half a teaspoon of sugar, this can be ordinary granulated sugar that u put in ur tea, coffee etc and put into the pea size amount of carmex in ur palm.

3) Now give the carmex and sugar a good mix, with ur finger or the spoon.... and there u have it... home made lip exfoliant!!

4) So now what u would do is simply apply on the the lips with finger and really give a good massage. The sugar will exfoliate all the nasty dry skin whilst the carmex will moisturise the lips as u are doing so. 

                          Sweet minty lips..... Have a try guys and let me know what you think

Classic smoky

I'm wanting to do freelancing work in makeup so I recently did a photoshoot for my work and this was one of the looks i did, ( along with gold/purple smoky and dirty green and blacked out in my earlier posts). These looks will be used for advertising on my leaflets/business cards... hope u like it! (this look was done on my sister in law btw)

P.s this was done using the elf pallete that was given as a freebie during christmas when a £10 shopping was done
