Backstage at London Fashion Week With Maybelline A/W 16

Fyodor Golan 

The makeup look backstage at Fyodor Golan was focused around green glitter. The look was meant to capture the essence of lived in makeup, with a wet look lid and transferred mascara. Having the concentration of the colour under the bottom lash line gave it a very grunge look. To re-create the look at home you could use Maybelline’s Master Drama liner in Turquoise generously under the eye and black close to the lash line to add depth. The glossy lid was created using a clear baby lips, after mascara was applied and allowed to be transferred onto the lid. I thought this looked really interesting and is something that’s so quick and easy to do.

Marks Lupfer 

At Markus Lupfer the look emulated the worn in end of a night out look, with large chunks of gold glitter and gold leaf. The base was kept fresh with just a hint of a pinky peachy lip created using the new baby lips balm & blush. The texture of this product is beautiful and catches the light really nicely. Maybelline colour tattoo in Eternal Gold was used in the centre of the lid, and the various sized gold glitter chunks were added to different areas around the eye, each model was slightly different.
The hair really complimented the makeup look, with its rough textures and being placed all over the face.
Overall I really loved this look and thought the eyes especially would be great to re-create for a night out or special event.

Thanks so much to Maybelline for letting me go backstage at LFW! I had such a great time, hope you guys enjoyed reading.

Street Hairstyle Spotting With Got2b

Effortless Messy Video  Effortless messy is so easy to create. The twist action I used when blow drying is a quick way to add loose waves and dry your hair at the same time. The Made for mess texturising spray and hairspray add real texture making your hair look matte with a rough, easy breezy look.

Playful Pony Video (coming to my channel tomorrow!)
I’ve been wearing this hairstyle a lot and have had many compliments on it. The braid takes a bit of practice if your not used to doing dutch braids, but if you’re used to braiding your hair, it’s super fast.  The braid also give you a mini face lift, which is always a good thing!
I went out Street style spotting with Go2bUk to find some cool hairstyles that could spark some inspiration for you all! Here is what I found:

Effortless Messy
This style is fast and great for every day wear. The twist blow dry technique enables you to achieve natural looking waves, and the Made for mess range helps add extra texture. My favourite product from this range is the made for mess texturising hairspray. It holds your hair in place and makes it look ‘worn in’ which I really like.

Just For the Curls 
This hairstyle really caught my eye, I loved the sleekness of her curls! To recreate the look you could follow the step by step video on the got2b channel ‘Just For The Curls’ using the 2 sexy product range. By adding the got2b 2 sexy big volume push up mousse in your roots it adds a load of lift.
This look would be great for a girls night out or a special party/event.

Top Knots
More and more I am seeing the half top knot look around, and I love it! Of course the classic top knot will never go out of fashion. As with the Just for curls look, the 2 sexy range will help add in volume and hold so you top knots can last all day.
To spice up your bun a bit try adding in a braid. You can find the ‘high n’ mighty’ tutorial on the got2b channel showing you exactly how to achieve it.

Playful Pony
This is one of my recent faves, as shown in my video above. The playful pony is a great way to add interest to your hair and is really practical for school.
Having the braid slightly on one side means your not going way overboard with braiding. Try hiding the band with a section of your hair to make the hairstyle look more polished.
When I create this hairstyle I like to use the got2b beach matt salt spray to add texture to my hair. To create volume at the crown I like to add a little of the powderful volumising powder to the roots.

Whilst street style spotting in London I found a number of really cool braided hair looks, which I think is going to be a big trend this year.
Dutch and french braids were very popular and look really cool. If you have short hair, try dutch/ french braiding back your hair with a centre part and crossing over the ends at the back, secured with pins. Medium length hair can continue the braid down past the neck. Those lucky enough to have long long luscious locks can create beautiful milkmaid braids, such as this one above which is actually a twist braid. Twist braids always look very different but like all braids once you get the hang of it, I would say it’s the easiest to do.
I hope you got some inspiration from this post! Let me know if you re-create any of the above using the hashtag #got2binspire and don't forget to check out the got2b channel for more hair tutorials (I will link it below).

Thanks for reading,

Miss Sporty Valentines Look and Product Reviews

The Insta Glow foundation and primer are new to the Miss Sporty product range. The primer is a really nice consistency and goes onto the skin well. It adds a lot of radiance to the skin and feels breathable, unlike a lot of other primers I have tried. The foundation is nice and  is a light - medium coverage. I was really impressed with the shade range, and the palest shade was even too pale for my natural skin! That’s a first! 

I’m very picky when it comes to bronzers. Miss Sporty Insta glow bronzer has a little bit of glitter in which adds even more radiance to the skin making you look nice and sun kissed. To create my Valentines look I used the Insta Glow blush in the shade ‘Flushed Pink’. The blush applied evenly and was a good level of pigmentation. 

To create the ‘slightly sultry’ smokey eye I used the Quattro eyeshadow palette in Smokey Rose. I find pinky toned eyeshadows really suit my complexion and go well with my hair colour. 

I’ve left the best till last! The BFF lipsticks have to be my favourite thing from the whole Miss Sporty range. They have such a nice finish whilst being moisturising at the same time. For longer lasting colour, I suggest blotting the lipstick and applying twice. My favourite shade form the BFF lipsticks at the moment is ‘My Cheeky Cherry’. 

Thanks for reading!
