Autumnal Makeup | Collab.

Autumnal Makeup.jpg

Back in spring I did a beauty collaboration with Chanelle from Chanelle Hayley. Because Chanelle lives in New Zealand, she created an autumnal makeup look and I created a spring look, so now that it’s autumn here in the UK, we decided to do the reverse.

For my autumnal look I have gone for a matte neutral brown eye with matte berry lips and to achieve this look I used the newly released Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics eyeshadow palette. I haven’t had the opportunity to experiment with it a whole lot since receiving it, but thus far I am loving it.

The final blogger I have collaborated with is Michelle Berry and today we are focussing on beauty by going through our favourite products for this time of year, Spring. Michelle’s favourites will be in a separate post on her own blog so make sure you head on over there too.

“Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing.” – Kenneth Grahame.

Day two of Collab Week (which you can hear more about here) features fellow beauty blogger Chanelle. Chanelle lives in New Zealand and I live in the UK which means that we are currently experiencing different seasons. While for me it is Spring, for Chanelle it is Autumn, so we decided to work together on each creating a Spring and Autumnal makeup look respectively. As a result, no matter which side of the world you’re on there is hopefully something to suit your current season.

Five Books You Must Read.jpg

“It is with the reading of books the same as with looking at pictures; one must, without doubt, without hesitations, with assurance, admire what is beautiful.” – Vincent van Gogh.

I know normal protocol for a Monday is a book review, but we’re switching things up a little this week. Here on driftinglexi it is Collab Week which means that each week day there will be a new post in which I will have worked with a different blogger. This means that this week I will be introducing you to five amazing bloggers to discuss some of my favourite topics: books, beauty and nails.

Valentine’s Day Makeup.

“Wherever and whenever possible, give your love to everyone and every being and see every day as the Day of Valentine, the Day of Love for all beings!” – Mehmet Murat ildan.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this week’s Tutorial Tuesday theme just had to be a Valentine’s Day Makeup look. However, it is Shrove Tuesday today, so happy Pancake Day everyone! Unsurprisingly, a pancake tutorial was not an option for me (as much as I love them, I’m sure you can find a billion other better recipes than what I could ever supply you with).
