Wishing you a very happy New Year!

Good afternoon to you all! 

I'm sitting on the sofa in my living room watching my brother play Little Big Planet 2 on his new PS3 that he got for Christmas and I'm wondering where this year just disappeared to. This time last year I was in India spending time with my family over there, and talking to them about how 2012 is gonna be a busy year for London because of the Olympics n'all. 

It's just so amazing how fast years go by - and they seem to go by faster and faster as you get older. I can't believe that this time tomorrow we - everybody around the world - will officially be into the new year... some, like New Zealand and  Australia, have probably already wished their loved ones a happy and prosperous new year, while we patiently wait and look forward to any celebrations that we may have planned for tonight!

So! This is simply just a blog to wish all my subscribers and blog readers a very very happy new year and I'm sure that no matter what you're doing, tonight will be great - and so, to start as you mean to go on, celebrate in style, be happy, stay safe and keep hoping and dreaming - 2012 will do the rest for you ;)

Wishing everyone a happy, warm, safe new year! Hope 2012 is everything you hope it to be! =D

Youtube Tutorial: New Years Smokey Eye


So, firstly, let me answer the what, where and why. I got tons of messages (to my surprise) asking WHAT happened to me, WHERE I disappeared to and WHY?!? Basically, the last time I post a video on youtube was on May 1st 2011 and since then I was really busy with work and honestly, I lost motivation to do any sort of youtube videos. BUT I recently found that I missed it so much, so I went onto my channel to check it out and I realised I had loads of messages asking me what had happened to me and I had loads of requests as well.

So I figured, since I missed youtube, and since you guys missed me, I decided this was a good time to come back... and here's my tutorial!

As I mentioned in the video, I got quite a few requests for party/glam looks and with New Years right round the corner I figured it would be a good time to upload a look that fit those requests. 


- Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion
- MAC Paint Pot Bare Study
- Urban Decay Naked Palette - Gunmetal, Creep
- MAC Eyeshadow - Carbon, Contrast, Espresso, Bisque
- MAC Fluidline - Blacktrack
- MAC Eye Kohl - Blooz
- Eylure Naturalites False Eyelashes #100

(for eyebrows I used MAC Fluidline - Dipdown)

- Nivea Face Moisturiser
- MAC Studio Fix Fooundation SPF15 - NC42
- MAC Blush - Darkly My Dear (Limited edition)

- Nivea Lip Balm - Pure and Simple Milk and Honey
- MAC Lip Pencil - Burgundy
- Urban Decay Pocket Rocket - Eric (red)
  *As mentioned in the video, most lip colours will suit this look since the eye look is your standard smokey eye. Just remember to keep your cheeks natural ;)
