FOTD: Birthday Tea! Featuring Christian Dior and Project Pan!

C: I recently went out for tea with some friends for a late birthday tea (nothing like spreading out the celebrations!) and really liked my make up, so decided to share it all with you!

Products used:

Garnier Primer

L’oreal 24 Hour Infallible Matte Foundation

Soap & Glory Kick Ass Powder

ELF Eyebrow Kit

Benefit Hoola Bronzer

The Balms Mary Lou Manizer

Mac Blusher in Petal

Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Liner

Christian Dior Lifting Grey Palette

Benefit They’re Real Mascara

Model Co Party Proof Lipstick in Kitty

So apparently I used a lot of products to create this look! Overall, I think this is a really nice make up look for tea out and I chose to use my Model Co lipstick in Kitty from our Project Pan! This is the perfect choice to eating out as it is so long lasting but fades evenly, meaning you don’t have to panic about having lipstick half way round your face/ just looking like crazy lady lip liner! I also used my bronzer/highlighter/blusher choice combo to create a slight contour (pregnancy = no cheekbones) and my Dior palette which i reviewed AGES ago here, to create a smokey look! Hope you like it! #twolittleowls

FOTD: Ladies who Brunch Feat. Kiko Cosmetics and Project Pan!

C: a quick FOTD for you all today! I went out for a late breakfast with Annie (and the boys, but we try to ignore them as best as we can) the other day and quite liked my make up so decided to share it with you! I was also wearing my S&G lipgloss from our Project Pan (you can see the post all about it here) so thought it would be a good way to update you on how said project is going!

Please do excuse my eyebrows… I am prepping them for a nice wax ha! Other than the monstrous brows (which I used ELFS brow kit to tame as much as possible), I decided to keep my make up quite low key, especially with my base. I have delightfully hormonal skin at the moment so kept my base quite light with my GOSH BB Cream and my ELF translucent powder. Although I have several blemishes on my chin, I decided against a heavy duty concealer as Annie isn’t bothered by my horrid face and I would rather not clog up my skin any more than necessary! Special occasions for posh make up only! To warm up my skin a little I used Benefits Hoola bronzer and a little Mary Lou Manizer to highlight – being preggo means I no longer actually have cheekbones so this just contoured my face slightly so I looked like the normal me!

For my eyes I used Benefits Stay Don’t Stray primer, as it was hot weather and I knew I was going to be out all day and then lined under my eyes with a Rimmel black liner which I smudged out slightly with a brush. I then used my Kiko Eyeshadow stick in 04 Golden Chocolate all over my lid which I blended out with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. I then reapplied some more in the crease to darken it slightly and add some definition. I love these beauties for easy make up that looks like you have spent ages creating a smokey eye – I reviewed this separately here if you are interested.

I then used a black eyeshadow from W7 along my upper lashes to add some definition and finished with a couple of coats of Benefits They’re Real Eyeliner! All in all I spent about 10 minutes at the most doing my make up, but was really pleased with how it came out! Lastly I applied my S&G Sexy Motherpucker lipgloss that I am trying so hard to use up for our Project Pan, but it is lasting forever! I have used it so much and it still looks brand new… may have picked the wrong product here but congrats on such a value for money product S&G!

So anyway what do you think of my low maintenance, low-key look? It lasted all day and is simple enough for any make up beginner! #twolittleowls

Project Pan: Rimmel Lasting Finish in Birthday Suit

A: Chloe and I have decided to give Project Pan a go this Summer (click here to see our full post), and I’ve been loving using one of my lipsticks featured so I thought I’d share this look with you.



This is the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Birthday Suit, a beautiful nude with a gold shimmer.

I did my usual base with Model Co BB cream, Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder and I then added a gold shimmer eyeshadow from my Bellapierre Get The Look kit (review coming soon!), and my go to winged liner and mascara.


I really think this lipstick works well with a subtle eye for an everyday look, but I’m also super excited to team it with a smokey eye for an evening look too! The texture is lovely and creamy, and keeps my lips hydrated all day. It’s not really long lasting, but a nude is easy to apply throughout the day so I don’t mind too much!

What do you think to this look? #twolittleowls

Project Pan! 

A & C: hi guys and welcome to our new feature: project pan! We may be a little late to the party on this one as we have seen so many project pan videos/posts and think it is an amazing idea! As beauty bloggers we end up with so many amazing products that just get pushed to the back of our stashes and never get used. Well we have decided that that is clearly a waste and we need some motivation to use up items in our stashes rather than just move on to the next new thing.

I know this is a Summer project for most people, and we are gonna stick with the lipstick theme for this Summer like everyone else, but every couple of months we are going to set ourselves a new target for project pan and keep you guys updated! If you would like to join us then let us know in the comments, and we can include links to your blogs etc. all we ask in return is a link back to this post when you set your project pan targets!

We shall be posting updates/FOTDs featuring our chosen lipsticks, and have decided (as we are as late to this as everything else) that we have until the end of September to use these bad boys up!

Chloe’s picks: 

Clinique Chubby Stick in Watermelon – I love this beauty so much, that I have almost finished it and have been saving the last bit for some sort of special occasion that will never happen! I have loads of other chubby sticks waiting to be opened so that is why I chose this! It is also super easy to wear every day so think using it up is achievable!

Model Co Party Proof Lipstick in Kitty – One of my favourite Birchbox discoveries was this beauty. I loved it so much that I bought the set of 3… meaning I have two of these! Hence why I have chosen to use it up! It doesn’t break my heart too much to say goodbye when I know I already have another!

Soap and Glory Sexy Motherpucker Lipgloss – I reviewed this here, and apparently lip glosses don’t have an excellent use by date once opened so thought I would choose this. I also feel like a chubby stick, lipstick and lip gloss are three very different options so I have something for every occasion – meaning I won’t get too bored of using these up!

Annies Picks:

  
Avon Colour Trend in Coral Wisp – I love a good Avon bargain as much as the next beauty blogger, and this is a beauty. It has a gorgeous pale coral colour which is super buildable and ideal for summer. Plus it smells amazing! 

Model Co Party Proof in Kitty – I’m totally with Chloe on the one, it’s one of my faves. But don’t worry – I have another in my lipstick stock so I won’t mind using it either! It’s really wearable and goes with pretty much any look – day or night! 

Rimmerl Lasting Finish in Birthday Suit – this is a true oldie, I can’t even remember when I got it and I forgot how lovely it is. It’s a for fours nude with a gold shimmer, so another summer perfect lip product. I’m really looking forward to getting back into this – but I have a feeling I might be sad when it’s all gone! 

So what do you guys think of project pan?! Let us know if you want to get involved and if so what you think our theme should be for the end of September! We can’t wait to get started designing some make up looks with these badboys! #twolittleowls
