Better Late than Never?

Hello lovelies,

I hope you have all had a very enjoyable Christmas and New Year! I have been utterly rubbish at updating my blog/YouTube recently and I must apologise. I am currently moving house and it has all been quite hectic, but once I am settled (the big move is on the 13th) I promise I will get back to regular broadcasting :).

Since I have decided to take a little break from packing and trying to slimline my wardrobe (Oxfam won't know what's hit it) I though I would post my makeup and outfit from NYE.

I know you all love the roller photos ;)

Makeup is nothing too flashy-
Maybelline superstay silky foundation is my absolute favourite for going out. Yes, it is pretty heavy in coverage, but it is a breeze to apply, you don't need any concealer when using it, and it really lasts, even through some heavy beats ;)! As awful as it is, sometimes after a long night I do flop into bed without taking my makeup off *holds wrists out for immediate arrest by the skin police*. This is the only foundation that is still there in the morning and that doesn't clog my pores. However, I wouldn't recommend it for every day use, unless you need a lot of coverage.

Face: MAC msf natural to set
NARS laguna to contour
NARS Angelika blush

Eyes: UDPP
Chanel quatre ombres (silver), MAC dark night, carbon, vapour e/s
Bourjois silver pencil on lower lashline
L'oreal Liquid liner
L'oreal Voluminous mascara
MAC lashes

Lips: MAC creme cup, which I lost that night :(

The bf kindly cooked me dinner (thank goodness he is good at/ enjoys cooking as I don't) and after too many yummy salmon fishcakes I had to scrap my initial choice of outfit for the party we were heading to and go for something with a little more space in the..umm.. stomach region ;). I'm sure I have posted this one before, it's a super glitzy sequin dress from Karen Millen from a couple of seasons ago. I just love the fact it has long sweeping sleeves and a drape at the back as usually sequin dresses leave very little to the imagination in terms of their cut, this one, even though it is very short, is a little more interesting.

I hope you all had a fantastic NYE!! In Russia we celebrate New Year much more so than Christmas and it was strange for me to be away from my family for the first time. However, I received a fantastic present from all of you when I logged in on the 1st of January 2010 to see that I had 20(0)10 subscribers on YouTube!!! Thank you so much!! I am so so thankful to each an every one of you who watch and read all my little rambles. I shall be having a contest very soon to celebrate so please keep an eye out.

Love lots xxx


  1. Hi natalya great makeup!

    I was wondering if those are hot rollers on your hair? If so are they the babyliss ones? And do you recommend them? (I am looking to get some?)


  2. @priya- yes they are and yes I highly recommend them. They heat up fairly fast, come with clips that are easy to use and give you beautiful bouncy curls with no fuss or burnt fingers :) xxx
