70s Styling

Following the call of the disco ball this weekend, we went back to the 70s and created some retro looks with fantastic clothing and accessories from The Closet – Vintage Aberdeen.


Look Number 1 was a huge tan suede poncho teamed with some Levi’s denim hot pants, cowboy boots and a gorgeous turquoise necklace. 

The models hair (I had major hair envy!) was kept super sleek and to compliment the colours of the clothes and accessories, I went for neutral eyes and some MAC purple lipstick to give a bit of colour.


We kept the hair and makeup the same for a quick outfit change to this AMAZING tan jacket (a definite favourite of mine from the shoot) and a striped blue shirt with the Levi shorts.


Look Number 3 involved some high waisted and seriously flared Levi jeans, with a green & red paisley patterned shirt, topped with a beautiful green felt hat – pheasant feather included!! 😍

With the hairstylist adding some loose waves to her hair, I changed her make up to include some green shadow to compliment the colour of the shirt.  Starting the look with a nude lipstick, I changed it after a couple of pictures to a pillar box red, which tied in better with the styling.



On to Look 4 which was a silk maxi dress with a beach scene print.  Holding my hands up, I wasn’t sure on this dress when I saw it on the hanger but holy smooooookers, this looked good on.

Styling wise I chose a pink lippie to match a key colour on the dress.  Using an Estée Lauder  fuschia Lipstick, I added a Benefit gloss over the top and darkened the eyes slightly. Hair took it up another notch, adding in a ridiculously cute bow in a pink colour (keeping with the theme here! 😉) and adding a bit of volume.


Look 5 was lots of fun to do and with a black and gold 70s disco jumpsuit (tying at the back of the neck) hair and make up were able to go to town!

Sticking with the colours, I used MACs Paint Pot and applied over her lid before adding some loose gold glitter pigment (MAC again!) and darkening up the outer corners of the top lid and lower lashline with Bobbi Brown’s Paris Pallete (review on this coming soon).

Hair went for a Bridget Bardot inspired look, but unfortunately as we were running short on time, I don’t have a behind the scenes shot of this one – you will just have to make sure you follow me on Twitter or Instagram to see the final pics when the come out!

Till then, here’s one more pic…. 😉😘

Nip+Fab – Dragon’s Blood Fix – Review

I’ve heard lots of good things about Nip+Fab’s range, so when a colleague mentioned that Superdrug are currently offering half price on their products, I couldn’t resist trying some out!

Ordering online, I went for Nip+Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Mask 50ml as well as adding Nip+Fab Dragons Blood Fix Cleansing Pads x60 to my basket.

DiamondTome Facial 

My skin had been looking a little on the dull side, so when I saw a half price offer on itison for a DiamondTome Facial at Tiffany Hair and Beauty (Aberdeen), I quickly snapped it up.

The DiamondTome facial is a skin resurfacing system and the latest technology in microdermabrasion.  It uses a diamond encrusted wand to vacuum and exfoliate the skin, reducing or eliminating signs of ageing, such as discolouration, fine lines and texture.

Denim Smoky Eyes 👀

You might have seen my earlier post on Mixology @ Paramount – Aberdeen (if you haven’t you should def go check it out 😜), but I thought I’d also do a quick post on my makeup from the evening.


To do this denim smokey eye, I used a mixture of shades and eyeshadow textures…

Applying MAC’s Cream Colour Base (Pearl Frost) as a Primer, I built up the colour with a neutral shade (Combust) from Urban Decay’s NAKED Smoky Palette.  Using ‘Password‘ and ‘Dagger‘ (also from the Smoky Palette) to build up the colour and depth in the crease, I then used a flat brush to apply Chanel’s Apparition Illusion d’ombre eyeshadow across the lid – before finishing with MAC’s ‘Grey’ Glitter pigment.


Adding a thin line of liquid liner across the top last line and using a denim eyeliner and ‘Dagger‘ shadow along the bottom lashes, the look is then finished off by applying some false lashes 😀
