Last night I went out with my girlies. In all honesty, I didn’t leave much time to spruce myself up. I had no time to wash my hair so sat and thought what the heck i could do with it in it’s current (not so fresh) state. I went for a somewhat Pixie Lott/Cheryl Cole do; Backcombing it and simply putting it up in a pony tail with a center parting. Very quick and very easy!

It was the Cheryl Cole hair inspiration which brought me onto the makeup. Cheryl is known for her bright pink lip, and as i own the Mac Lipstick Show Orchid (which I haven’t shown some love for in a while) I decided to opt for that. Obviously having a bright lip means dulling down on the eye makeup, so i kept that fairly neutral.

♥ Mac Studio Fix Fluid & Mac Strobe Liquid mixed together (essential for a glow in the winter)
♥ Mac Moisture Cover concealer
♥ Benefit Erase Paste in no 1 under eyes/inner corners
♥ Bare Escentuals Foundation in Medium Beige lightly dusted to set
♥ Mac MSF in So Ceylon on cheeks/cheek bones
♥ Mac E/S in Nano Gold all over lid
♥ Mac E/S in Espresso in crease
♥ L’oreal Superliner in Carbon Gloss
♥ Maybelline False Lash Effect Mascara
♥ Mac Show Orchid Lipstick (pro product)

And here are a few poopy webcam shots so you can see my hair a bit better! :)

    This hairstyle is lovely! Very simple and chic.

    I always find, when I do a hairstyle like this, I start off with a nice big backcombed 'bump' like yours but as the night goes on, it just drops down and goes all flat! Even when I use hairspray and grips to hold it in place. Any tips? x

  17. Omg you look stunning! x

  18. Monika

    That lipstick looks lovely on you! xo

  19. Love the hair, don't know if its just the light or the fact you've ombred the bottom, but it looks darker on top. Really very pretty & you rock a pony tale well. GORGEOUS lips

    I love everything about this look! I wouldn't dare try braver, brighter shades because my lips are relatively small and I'm scared I'm look ridiculous so I'm really envious that you can pull it off so well :-) Your hair is absolutely gorgeous, love how you've put it up!
