New Video: Warm Gold Halo Makeup Tutorial

Hi loves, let me start off with updating you on my life. I feel like a really bad blogger at the moment as I simply have not been able to upload as much content as I would have liked in the last month. It is currently the month of Ramadhan, meaning that things have been quite hectic for myself and all of those who fast. Combine that with a full time job and it becomes really crazy! However I do have something for you today, I filmed a tutorial of a makeup look that I just love wearing, a warm halo makeup look.

Anything with strong warm tones and that burnt orange shade, is just right up my street. Throw in a little bit of glitter and shimmer, and you might as well just name the look after me. I actually really enjoyed filming this tutorial, I think I am starting to get the hang of it a little so I am feeling optimistically excited to film another makeup look. Next time I think I will go for something a little more neutral as those looks tend to be more wearable for a range of skin tones. Let me know if you have any suggestions as they really help in deciding what to film!

Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Makeup Look

Hi loves, today I wanted to bring you a makeup look post, as it seems like forever since I last done a makeup look on here. As you might know from my Urban Decay Alice Palette post, I recently got hold of the new UD palette and I just cannot get enough of it. I decided to play it a little safe and create a wearable looking using the palette. Read on to find out more about my Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass makeup look.

I am not going to ramble too much in this post and instead get straight onto what I used to create this look. Although I have to just say, I love love love the peachy orange shades in this palette, they’re right up my street so of course they had to be incorporated into this look. I also am such a fan of a good red lipstick, and Urban Decay Iracebeth was just that. I love how highly pigmented it is, how comfortable it on the lips and just how pretty it looks against my skin. Okay, I’m starting to waffle, let’s get onto the product lists.

Eye Products Used:

I have a really bad habit of using as many eye shadows as I can, that is why I love palettes and try and steer away from single eye shadows, do you have any idea how much it cost me to create a look I’d like? I’d need a whole range of single shadows! Okay let us talk face makeup, for the face I wanted something not too heavy but flawless as well, a slightly sculpted finish with a TON of glow. I think I did pretty well on the glow front!

 I like how this is look turned out to be very wearable, but still incorporating some colour in it. I also am loving my faux glow, I just cannot get enough of highlighter at the moment. I just picked up the new Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit and I am so excited to practically bathe myself in it. If you like the look of the Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass palette, make sure you pop to your local UD counter to see if you can pick it up as it is sold out online.

I hope you guys liked this Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass makeup look if you’d like me to do more, please do let me know. Speak soon, Tanzina x

New Video: Ethnicity Tag

Hi loves, I’ve been wanting to do more ‘get to know me’ videos, because I think one of the beauties of videos are that it’s a really good way to find out people’s personalities and also the person behind the writing (if they have a blog). Today I have just uploaded an Ethnicity Tag video, which delves a little into my background, where I am from and just a few facts about me.

Ethnicity Tag

I don’t want to waffle too much here, as I do a bit of talking in the video, but I really do hope you enjoy watching and you get to know me a little better.

You can watch the video here: link

Please please do let me know what kind of videos you guys would like me to film, I really need to get in the habit of filming but sometimes I’ll admit, I do struggle to get ideas of what to film! If you haven’t subscribed to my channel yet please do, and don’t forget to like and comment. I shall speak to you soon, Tanzina x

Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Collection

Hi loves, today I am really excited to share with you a collection I have been drooling over for what feels like the longest time. I’m going to keep this post quite short and sweet for you as I have a makeup looking coming up but I needed to share it with you this collection as soon as possible. As you can probably tell by the title, this beautiful colour collection is the Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Collection which I just can’t get enough of. I want to do a quick overview of the palette and lipsticks as they’re way too pretty to not talk about.

Let’s start with the main attraction, the Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass eyeshadow palette. I am very fortunate as I already have the previous Alice palette from Urban Decay (Book of Shadows 3) so I knew that this one had to be a part of my collection too. I still use the previous one till this day, which says a lot about the palette and it’s quality as it came out SIX years ago! Let’s quickly talk packaging, just how stunning is the outer box? I don’t usually keep packing (anymore) as I am trying to stop being a hoarder, but I might have to keep this one as it is a beauty. The actual palettes packaging is the same as the outer box, and the rest of it is a little excess in a very beautiful way. You lift the lid up to expose a delicate butterfly, very Alice-esque, and a slide out drawer holds the 20 eyeshadow pans.

The colours in the palette are a true mix of some brights and some very wearable shades. I love that there is a really good selection, there are 20 shadows in total, all of which are brand new. I hate it when I get a palette and I already have like six of the shades, luckily no chance of that happening here. I love that the colours lean towards the warm side, which is my favourite as it suits me best. The third row especially as me drooling! Some of the shadows aren’t as pigmented as others but overall the palette is a keeper. I love the hot pink Cake shade, just looking at it gets my creative juices flowing. I am trying to create more content at the moment for my Instagram page (cheeky plug: @makeupatoz) and I feel like this palate will give me tons of inspiration. This palette seems to be out of stock online, but try popping into a Urban Decay counter where you might get lucky and pick this up for £43.

The collection also comes with 5 gorgeous lipsticks, some a little wacky and some more wearable. Urban Decay say: ‘Inspired by the new fantasy-adventure film release of Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, these five limited-edition shades of Lipstick pay tribute to our favorite characters: Alice, Mad Hatter, Mirana (the White Queen), Iracebeth (the Red Queen) and Time, a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.’ 

My favourite is definitely the matte red, Iracebeth, which is a bright pinky red matte which looks AMAZING on the lips. Crazily, this is my first time trying Urban Decay lipsticks (don’t worry, this will be remedied very soon with the new Vice lipstick release), and I cannot believe just how beautifully and easily this lipstick applies. It goes on like butter, no kidding here, it just glides on. It is so rich, so pigmented, clearly I have been missing out! The finish is called a ‘Comfort Matte’ and I get why! It is so comfortable on the lips, I’m currently taking this everywhere with me. I also really like Mirana, which is is described as a ‘matte berry with tonal shimmer.’

I hope you guys liked the quick overview of the new Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass collection, I cannot believe just how quickly it sold out online! I’ve already created a look with this palette so I’ll get that up for you as soon as possible. Make sure you pop to your nearest Urban Decay counter to see if these products are available, as they’re going like hotcakes for a reason! Speak soon, Tanzina x

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Rose

I’ve been wearing Juicy Couture perfumes for years and years and years. One of my all time favourite perfumes is from Juicy Couture (Juicy Couture Eau De Parfum), so when I heard that they had added another perfume to their collection, I knew I had to have it. Some of you may know that I gravitate towards floral scents, so it was no surprise that the Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Rose piqued my interest. I wanted to do a quick overview for you today of the latest addition to my perfume collection, just in case you too were on the market for a new scent.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Rosé comes housed in a gorgeous glittery ombre bottle. I will be honest with you, I am quite superficial and do tend you lust a product more if the packaging is beautiful. But you don’t understand, this looks so pretty on my perfume shelf. I love the hot pink bow accent and the mini charm, sigh, it’s definitely my kind of perfume bottle. I believe it is inspired by champagne and rose, hence the sparkling finish.

This perfume is a perfect spring/summer addition to the line, It is described as ‘ an irresistible bouquet of honey-like pink blossoms, which pops with fizzy citrus perfection and is kissed by the glow of sensual amber.’ – a rather fancy description! I would describe it as a floral scent, with a fruity element to it which makes this perfume quite fun and alluring. It doesn’t carry a really heavy heady floral scent to it, which is actually a lot more appealing for day time wear as it sits on the skin nicer and isn’t overwhelming when you spritz it. It hasn’t got that heavy powdery quality that some rose perfumes have, which is a definite no no for me. Instead it has the balance just right.

Here are the notes in the perfume:

The scent opens with the fresh fruity notes of Italian Mandarin and William Pear, intertwining with soft, dewy Jasmine Petals. At the heart there is Rose Centifolia next to White Peony and Jasmine Sambac, drying down with decadent Ambrox ,sensual Orris Absolu and warm Benzoin.

I always feel like ‘I knew it’ when I see notes of Jasmine, as more often than not when I like a perfume it usually has Jasmine in it somewhere. I’ve been really enjoying this perfume as of late, I wear it to work every day, and I even had someone comment on it. That’s when you know you’re wearing something nice. I also love seeing this bottle next to my other Juicy Couture perfumes, look how pretty they all look together like a little family!

 I can’t get enough of Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Rose as of late and I highly recommend to hunt it down when you are next near a perfume counter, if only just to admire the gorgeous sparkly bottle. You can pick this up here for £36.50.
