It was perfect for this as the look was very feminine, sexy, soft and elegant.

Second Skin Cheek Colour in Fresh Peach = Perfect soft dusty peach
(All shades, except African Violet and Black Plum, are exclusive to this palette)
All really satin soft, not powdery at all. Great colours and really versatile, as you can see these were used on quite a pale model and looked amazing, they look great on medium skin tones and most of them (apart from the pale pink) would be gorgeous on darker skin also.
I also used Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation for that slight vintage feeling matte skin, along with Laura Mercier Secret Finish down the nose and on tops of the cheek bones.
Let me know if you have any questions on the palette or any other Laura Mercier products!
A couple of years ago Moroccanoil really took off and everyones been talking about it since.
Moroccanoil® has now become a haircare industry sensation and is embraced by celebrities and runway stylists. Their formulas not only leave hair naturally smooth and shiny, but also improve it's actual condition to make the hair stronger.
I've been using the Restorative Hair Mask for about 3 months now and it's really helped with the condition of my dry damaged hair.
The mask is full of protein to really feed and nourish the hair, it also smells amazing and I love the massive 250ml, bright plastic pot in comes in!
To get the best out of a hair mask you should apply the product to shampooed towel dried hair - if the hair is soaking wet the hair shaft will be full of water therefore the product has no where to go, it cant penetrate the hair properly.
Apply quite a bit of product and always comb through with a wide toothed comb.
This particular mask says to leave on for 10 minutes, I'd say leave it on for as long as you can - it's not gonna harm it.
Rinse and condition as normal.
Most people will benefit from a hair mask once a week, it really will make a difference to your hair, mine because much easier to brush too.
My hair is naturally pretty thick and wavy so I add a squirt of the Treatment Oilto the mask, for added shine and elasticity.
TheTreatment Oil can, of course, be used as a styling tool also. A few pumps on damp hair before drying is great or once the hair is dry, to add shine and seal the hair.
Start with a small amount, you can always add more. It absorbs instantly to fill gaps in the hair created by heat, styling and environmental damage.
It repairs as it replenishes lost proteins for strength; fatty acids, omega-3 oils, vitamins for shine and antioxidants for protection.
I'm pretty sure you can only buy Moroccanoil in salons so check their website for stockists and other product information.
Love your hair, get it in really great condition before the summer and you'll be a step ahead of the damaging sun!
I find that all of my other eye liner pencils are fine for editorial work, shows etc but sometimes I need a little more staying power - like for a music video, when the day is much longer, there might be much more sweat from dancer, lots more chance of movement....so in times like these I need waterproof long lasting pencils.
Urban Decay do a great selection of colours and they really do stay put.
They also carry a whole line of waterproof liquid liners which, again are great, a wide variety of colours with great staying power.
It's basically an extraction tool to help remove blemishes, quickly, easily and without all the marks (germs and damage) that fingers and nails leave.
It has two different loops, one on each end. One side is designed for whiteheads and the other for blackheads. You literally place the loop round the blemish and slide - the loop applies the pressure in the right place and boom it's out.
Clean it with alcohol after every use!
Such a great tool, a much cleaner way to remove blemishes.
