this year's girl ♥

Hi girls, hope you've had a good week. Can you believe I'm still trying to turn the dining room into my bedroom?! I went to Ikea last night (purely for the 50p hot dogs of course) and I bought a rail and quite a few candles - hopefully it will make my room look more girly. Because of me being a poor student, I couldn't afford to go on holiday this year :( but my best friend is so I won't see her for a week - so instead of going out tonight, I'm going to spend my evening watching Twilight films and The Departed. I know it's a weird combination but I've been wanting to watch these all week - how odd?! Anyway, I just want to tell you about an article that the lovely Kathleen sent to me. It's basically everything we need to know about health and safety for the beauty products we use. Apparently there is a limit to how long you can keep sun cream - what?! I never knew this! Bad Jade... Anyway, here is the link  - I think it's really helpful to everyone and with the amount of money we spend on cosmetics, its good that we know when to throw bits out! It's about time I mentioned an article like this - I don't fancy us all getting bacteria all over our make-up...

Now for today's blog post, I wanted to focus on the 2012 Autumn/Winter looks from the runway. I've picked my favourite looks and I think I've got quite a few different styles. My favourite has got to be the dark burgundy red lips - I can't believe how much the Burberry lipstick looks like the models lips?! Pretty good match I'd say ;) I really want to try this look, I love the glossy twist to it and the peach eyeshadow - definitely getting added to my wish list! The top look is a lovely update of the smokey eye, I could picture myself wearing this with giant hair and false lashes. It really is perfect for a night out, I'm getting tired of my evening make-up at the moment so I think this will add a new twist to it. Now the second look is quite tricky (well for me anyway), I do struggle getting the perfect line but I find using cotton buds and concealer a perfect weapon against uneven strokes. Practise does make perfect after all ;) What look do you think is the best one? Are you looking forward to the new season make-up trends? I'm going to start watching Eclipse (knowing me though I'll end up watching Criminal Minds again...) so I hope you have a good weekend girls, let me know if you try the Burberry lipstick! Also - has anyone noticed where I'm getting my post titles from lately? ;) ♥
