CAVE GIRL HAIR AND MAKEUP!

So, just before I broke up for Easter I had a cave girl social with my dance squad. Unfortunately I haven’t got any pictures of my outfit, but I will talk you through how I went about achieving a rugged yet still sexy cave girl esque look!

Makeup

  1. I started off by applying my usual MAC foundation, powered and bronzer (I will talk more about this at another point)
  2. I decided that I wanted my eye brows to be pretty wild, but not too wild, so I used my benefit brow zings and slightly spiked my eyebrows up where you would normally blend them in and make them completely natural. But were living in the wild eh?
  3. I then went on with the eyes, and wanted the shadow to be pretty neutral to resemble earth colours, so I used Rimmel London Colour Rush trio in the neutral shades to create a natural undefined smokey eye.
  4. i then went on with black liquid eye liner, and lined the top lashes quite thickly.
  5. Next I applied KISS eyelashes (review coming) to add a dramatic fluttery look.
  6. I then continued to line my eyes and wack on a load of mascara.
  7. I decided to add a pink blush just to set things off
  8. And to finish it up a nude lip gloss.

Hair

Its pretty standard that any cave girl look, the bigger the hair the better, although I did slightly feel like a drag queen!
  1. I started off by teasing the roots of my hair to give it some instant lift and volume.
  2. I then went on to curl my hair using my GHD hair straighteners. I curled in a pretty haphazard nature, there was no particular logic to it.
  3. And then I went crazy! I back combed the heck out of my hair (poor hair)
  4. I finished it off by sparing it with Treseme extra hold hair spray to make sure it stayed put all night-which it did.

DUSTY GIRLS PINK LADIES MINERAL BLUSHER

MooGoo is a brand I have previously talked about on my blog after receiving a sample from a blogger event that I attended. Whilst at the event I was also privileged enough to be one of the first people in the UK to see a new line of mineral makeup, Dusty Girls, the sister company of MooGoo. The lovely people at Dusty Girls sent me a sample of their pink ladies blusher to give a trial run. Here are my thoughts…


I am always a bit dubious of pink cheek colours. Given I\\’m mixed race, they often look too barbie like on me for some reason so I was a bit apprehensive to try this colour. I was however pleasantly surprised as the colour is a soft pink with an iridescent sparkle to it, its subtle enough to give you a natural glow.

The thing that is special about Dusty Girls is the fact that it is natural mineral makeup with no added chemicals or other nastiness. The older I get the more I am becoming aware of what I put on my skin, so the idea of mineral makeup just appeals to me. The blusher wasn\\’t dusty or powdery despite it being a mineral product, which again was a pleasant surprise. It seems to sit on my skin just perfectly. It also doesn\\’t seep into all your smile lines or another imperfections on your skin, seemingly guiding straight over. The blusher itself retails at £15.00, so it definitely in the mid to high end bracket, however I do believe its worth spending more on what you put on your face. I am looking forward to trying some more products from the Dusty Girls range and watching the brand expand as it establishes itself in the UK.
