RuCreate The Look | Episode 7

For this week’s RuCreate The Look post I was inspired by not a runway look, but a makeup look from the main challenge! The queens were tasked with acting out an episode from 9021H0, and I became obsessed with Valentina’s Monna Dartin look. From the nude lip to the light blue eyeshadow to the overall styling, her look screamed 90’s perfection and I just had to feature it! Keep reading to see what products I’d use to rucreate something similar, and to also read my thoughts about this weeks episode!

April Favourites

April turned out to be one of my busiest months yet! In the last few weeks I discovered a bunch of new beauty favourites, celebrated a 21st, two weddings and Easter, hurled over too many university assignments, cried a bit too much over Harry Styles’ solo debut, visited my sister up north and hit a huge blogging milestone! *catches breath* Here are my April Favourites!

Met Gala 2017 | Top 10 Best Dressed

It’s the first Monday in May which means it’s time for the 2017 Met Gala, the annual fundraising benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City! The event signifies the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibition, which this year is honouring Comme des Garçon designer Rei Kawakubo with an exhibition entitled “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.” Contrary to previous Met Gala’s, this years selection of looks seems a little paired down. With a dress code of avant-garde black tie I was expecting to see some more unusual looks, but nevertheless, there were some sure stunners I just had to write about! Here are my top 10 best dressed from the 2017 Met Gala that graced the 150-foot-long red carpet! Keep reading to find out who made the cut and if you enjoy this post please give it a “like” so I know!

RuCreate The Look | Episodes 5 & 6

I’m back with not one but two instalments in my RuCreate The Look series! I missed my last one because I was in between travelling and university got so hectic that I just couldn’t make blogging a priority. So, today I’m combining my thoughts from episode 5 and 6 into one post while celebrating Shea’s incredible neon look from episode 5’s faux fur runway! I hope you enjoy this post and if you do, please give it a “like” so I know and let’s jump into it, we’ve got a lot to cover!

The Autumnal Eyeshadow Edit

Since the weather has recently gone cold, it finally feels like Autumn has arrived! While I’ve already started rugging up in tights, coats and turtlenecks, I’ve also been whipping out the Autumn themed makeup for the cool change too! Since I love my seasonal makeup round ups so much, I’ve decided to cut my usual Autumn Makeup Picks post in half for double the beauty! So, without further ado, here are some of the burgundy toned palettes and shadows I’ve been reaching for recently to achieve the perfect, Autumnal eye!

RuCreate The Look | Episode 4

I told myself I’d take a break from blogging this week, as uni is really ramping up, unless the new episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race was interesting enough to write about – well, here we are! I freaking loved this episode, no surprise, and just couldn’t help myself once I watched it. Even though this weeks runway was so fast it almost gave me whiplash, I loved so many looks, especially Farrah Moan’s. So, this week’s RuCreate The Look is dedicated to her! Let’s get into it and if you enjoy this post, please give it a “like” so I know!

Easter Makeup Picks

I couldn’t let Easter pass us by and not post about it! Whether it’s because they’re chocolate scented, have cute candy themed names, or they’re shaped like a freaking egg, here are some Easter themed makeup products I think are perfect for the upcoming holiday! I love changing up my makeup to suit a certain theme, so check out some of my previous makeup edits such as my Valentine’s Day Makeup Picks and my Summer Makeup Picks to read more of these posts!

The Bird Cage | RuCreate The Look

I’m back with the third instalment of my RuCreate The Look series! If you haven’t read my posts about episode one and two, in this series I take my favourite look from each week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, gather up the makeup items I’d use to ‘rucreate’ it, plus provide some solid commentary on all the drama, fashion and shade of the episode! This week the queens were tasked with a sewing challenge and had to create an original princess with an interesting backstory and sidekick to go with it. I absolutely loved Sasha Velour’s princess backstory of someone caged by self doubt and weakness who overcame darkness by showing love – excuse me while I weep. Even though Sasha gets about 4 seconds of screen time each episode, something I touch on later, every second we get of her is pure art! So, here’s how I’d rucreate her makeup look from this weeks runway! If you enjoy this post, please give it a “like” so I know, and let’s crack on with it!

March Favourites

Sandwiched between a very exciting birthday month and an April that’s set to be super eventful, March ended up being a month that both dragged on yet passed in the blink of an eye! March saw me get fully into the swing of university and work, but in between juggling everything I was still able to dabble in some new beauty products, see one of my favourite artists perform live with 60,000 others, meet one of my ultimate blogging/girl boss/life inspirations, get completely absorbed in a bunch of new tv shows and welcome back my queens to the silver screen for a chance to fight it out for the crown. Here are my March Favourites!

Blushin’ Bride | RuCreate The Look

I’m back back back back, back again (someone please get the reference) with another instalment of my new RuCreate The Look series! Last week I celebrated the premiere of my favourite show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, coming back for a ninth season by launching a new blog series where I gather up the beauty bits I own that I’d use to recreate my favourite look from each week’s runway, plus give a quick recap of the episode! Last week was Feelin’ Peachy, which was inspired by Nina’s peach look, and this week is inspired by none other than my current favourite queen, Valentina! Her Spanish bridal look complete with gold cross earrings and orchids in her hair, which was inspired after her parents’ wedding day, gave me chills. I thought she looked absolutely phenomenal and it instantly became one of my favourite looks to ever walk the Drag Race runway. SO it was only logical to dedicate this weeks rucreation to Valentina!
