How to get: Big Bouncy Curls!

Today I thought I would share a hair style post with you!

This is how I typically like to wear my hair on a night out and I always get so many compliments on it and, usually have my friends asking me to do their hair like it. So here it is:

All I did was section off my hair starting from the underneath -using pretty chunky sections, used my enrapture totem curler on setting 1,2,3 (I'll be honesty I usually never change the setting!) did this all over my head, except when I got to the top parts of my head I pulled it tighter into the scalp to give it more 'oomph'! then I curled my fringe bits in smaller chunks in order to get the more dramatic curl. I left it to cool then ran my fingers through to curls to sort of 'clump them together' and loosen them. Some hair spray (this is my all-time favourite! Lasts SO long -incredible for the price.) Some shine spray and we're done! I didn't even have to back-comb my hair :)

What do you think of my big, bouncy hair?
Also any thoughts on the enrapture totem curler?

Thanks for stopping by!

Love, Bonney xo

Face of the Day: Rose Gold Eyes!

Welcome back!

Today's look is a little different for me as I'm not one to branch away from gold/brown eye shadow shades... or at least I wasn't until I met the naked 3 palette! In case you hadn't guessed, I am OBSESSED with the latest addition to the UD naked family. I'm still experimenting so hence all of my looks lately have been achieved using this palette.

I felt as it's now spring it was time I used some different colours and copper/rose gold is never usually one I reach for but I actually love this look, it really works well for those who have green eyes and my eyes are mainly green and I did notice that these colours really made them pop and stand out :) (once again I had trouble getting pictures that really did the eye look justice, sowwy guys) here are some pictures of my creation:

the eyes were actually a lot more metallic and sparkly but the photo's didn't really pick that up, so lets just use our imaginations for now ;) it still looks super pretty in the pictures though so it's a start!

what I used:
Urban decay naked 3 palette
transition shade: limit
all over shade: burnout 
on top: trick (had to use fix+ as this shade is VERY chunky and gives loads of fall out)
crease: nooner
outer corner and crease to add depth: mugshot
inner corner and brow highlight: emite makeup in NECT (I think, it's not very clear on the packaging) then over top- shroom by MAC! 
Autograph gel eye liner
l'oreal telescopic mascara
lips: mac prep and prime, hue & creme cup over top
bronzer: mac refined golden
blush: benefit cosmetics coralista
highlight: MAC in for a treat (LE)

I decided to use a nude shaded lipstick in this look to make sure all attention was on the eyes, hue is a very yellow/orange based nude so I just swiped a bit of creme cup over the top in order to add a little more colour to my lips.
I also used a coral blush in order to tie it into the orange-y-shades theme! :)

What did you think of this look? Tell me in the comments below! Thanks for reading<3

Manicure monday: Candy strips

It's Easter Monday, and this week I have been sporting this cute manicure in these lovely spring/summer colours.

Candy stripes, nail art, sinful colors, nail polish, strips, cute, seche vite, Easter nails, Pastel nails, pink nails, green nails, orange nails, yellow nails, models own nail art pen,

With all this lovely sunny weather we have been having, I felt like something bright and cheery on my nails, so I picked 5 bright pastel colours from my sinful color nail polish, and then used my models own white nail art pen to paint stripes on them. 

I had lots of lovely compliments on this manicure which is nice, I like it when people notice you have made a effort.

And topped it all off with a good coat of seche vite - my favourite topcoat.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend with your families and friends.
Why not let  us know what you have been up to in the comments...

The bodyshop - shimmer cube: Hot pink. (part one)

This is the BodyShop's Shimmer cube palette 26 "hot pink" from their spring collection.

01 garden rose
02 deep fuchsia
03 light coral
04 champagne pink

Their website says:

 "A palette of four subtle iridescent shades to mix and match. Crease-resistant and suitable for contact-lens wearers.
  • Iridescent finish
  • Crease-resistant
  • Dermatologically tested
  • Ophthalmologically tested

As you can see here, each of the four eye shadow cubes come out of the main cube  separately and has it's own lid, which is both awesome and a pain all at the same time. It does mean that if you have several of these you can mix and match your own palette if you want, or just take one colour with you in your make-up bag.

I really like these bodyshop shimmer cube, I have another one in green too.
The colours come out well, but not too bright, so they are good for a
variety of purposes. At the moment this shimmer cube is the front runner for my wedding day eye shadow, although there is still time to change my mind! 

At £16 each they aren't the cheapest eye shadow palette on the market, but there is a lot of product in each of the four cubes, and the quality of the body shop make-up to me is worth it.

I don't have any looks to show you guys yet, but as soon as I have a will post a part two so you can see how they look on.
