I want to apologise to why I havn’t been writing on my blog. I am getting ready to go back to Dublin for Christmas!! I am so excited cant wait to see everyone.

Toronto in winter is beautiful! I love the snow! Yes it is freezing, -17 (feels -26) but its bearable when you have the right clothes and the snow makes it look so pretty so its not that bad. But where I am going I need to prepare myself…snow boots is on the list and maybe a balaclava (what I have been told) I am excited that i’ll be living in a new city but so nervous as how will I bare the cold but look its an experience ha!!

I am going to miss Toronto but can’t wait for whats in store for us. I am thankfull for my time here. I have met so many people who will be in my life forever. I am going to miss Teavana and the people I work with. This city will always be in my heart and I hope to come back here one day. You never know I might be back sooner than I expect. Toronto it has been a pleasure but there’s no place like home…especially for christmas 🙂

Autumn/Winter 2013 Make up

image

This year the maroon “wine stained” lips are back. I love this winter look.  I love dark lips I think there very classy, old hollywood kind of look except more edgy. Theres plenty more shades out there to suit people that dont want to go this dark. A nice rose petal shade would be nice just make sure you stay in the burgundy/wine shade and not head into the browns. The wine stained lips are also making an appearance on the runway.

If you want to pull this look off you can do a smokey eye, classic eyeliner or maybe a touch of gold dust. Dont go to crazy on the rest of the make up. A naked eye would be perfect for it as its such a bold statement. If this doesnt appeal to you dont worry theres a look for everyone… “Pretty Pink” is going to be a trend which is just simple and pale-like make up. Its a real natural look which is so refreshing.

If you like a bit more going on its also all about your eye make up this year.

Stament lines are big this winter. Dont be afraid to do something different and creative. Black, metalic, bold colour eyeliners are all the range. Theres a reason why they are called statement lines..your suppose to make a statement. You obviously dont have to go for a bright pink eyeliner. Try something that will suit you and what you will be comfortable with wearing. A nice metalic navy or gold with maybe a smokey eye?! Play around with it. Have fun!

As for eyebrows…big brows is the new trend and its not going anywhere anytime soon. Its here to stay for a while so stop plucking start growing. Some people are even back combing there eyebrows. Remember to still keep them tamed and trimmed but to get that nice shape purchase a good brow gel. Just make sure you have a bit of control over your eyebrows. If you have blonde hair like me go 1-2 shades darker for that fashion edgy style.

To finish of this look apply a maroon/burgundy shade nail polish. It just completes your whole look. Gives it an elegant finish. I cant wait to purchase a new shade of lipstick. I am excited about this trend hope you are too.
