Hollywood Glamour Inspired Look!

Hello lovelies,

Happy hump day! Which not only means that the weekend is two days away, but also, that it's time for the weekly makeup tag!

I'm back with a Hollywood Glamour inspired look as part of the weekly makeup tag over at Aqeela's blog. If you're new to my blog (welcome! I hope you'll stay a while and keep coming back!), a few of us get together every week and come up with looks to match a specific theme.

This week's theme is 'Hollywood Glamour'and the first thing that came to mind was red lips, glamorous waves/curls and black liner. So I went crazy with my straightening iron, kept my eye makeup looking subtle with a couple of different shadows I blended together, and went for a pinkish red lipstick. I also added a pair of blingy earrings to go with the theme. I probably should have added false lashes but I got lazy, sorry. :P

Unfortunately, I had a bit of trouble getting decent photos of the look, so I had to experiment both with flash and without flash. The colour is a bit more accurate with flash but I do hate the glare you get on your skin. Here's what I came up with!

Without flash.

I also thought I'd try a sideways do, it was very easy to do and I think curls look fantastic with anything!


Last but not least, a black and white photo, because you can't have Hollywood Glamour without black and white!


I hope you enjoyed that, lovelies! Don't forget to hop on over to Aqeela's blog to see what the other gorgeous ladies came up with!

I must say it has been a very busy week for me, what with the birthday on the weekend, and then I went to the Coldplay concert yesterday! It was absolutely fantastic and I loved it! It was such a fiesta of extravagance, and I just might do a quick post on it because it was too wonderful a concert not to post photos!

I haven't forgotten the post I promised on my birthday makeup/outfit, I'm just waiting for my friends to send me some photographs from the night.

Have a fantastic week, lovelies!

Much love,
MM.

    1. Thanks so much, Trish!

      Unfortunately there is a lot of spam on the blog, Blogspot catches most of it but the odd one or two slip though.

      Hope you are doing well!
