So last summer, I shot with my friend Jos, in the Queen of Roses shoot. This shoot was heavily inspired by Dolce & Gabanna's Golden Heart collection for Fashion week 2015. When I did this shoot, I felt like I was in an editorial, like a spread in Vogue. I have high ambitions, so I will have a spread in Vogue one day, watch this space. Anyway, I posted a throwback to the head shots from this shoot, and you all literally went gaga, and for that I thank you. Now, being a secret makeup lover, I decided to do a make up post, because why not? I keep promising them don't I?

I wanted to  create a spring/summery pink  look, that was suitable for darker skin tones. Making sure I had a great base, slayed eyebrows, and golden eyes; was imperative to creating the Queen of Roses look. I mean, if I was going to look like a Queen, I'd have to feel like one, right? To do this, I used my A la carte cosmetics, skin tint foundation which was customised for my skin tone. Followed by concelear which was used under the eye, and on my forehead to add a glow. Blending that in, I finished off my base using the A la Carte cosmetics silk touch powder, in Bronze.
With a slayed base, I realised that my brows, eyes and lips needed to follow suit. Using the Sleek Make up, Eyebrow stylist in Dark, I created sculpted brows that my bestie and beauty editor for FBL Bloggers, Humayra would be proud of. I love you girl! I had a bit of a play round with lip combos, first using the NYX Jumbo lip pencil in Burgundy  and using Gosh Velvet touch lipstick in Twilight.

For my eyes, I used the Sleek Au Naturel palette & Vintage Romance palette to create a golden smokey eye. Winging the eye with my trusty, Barry M liquid eyeliner, I created a regal eye look, finishing the eyes off with the Maybelline Colossal Volume mascara to add drama to my lashes. To finsh off the look, I added the Sleek Make Up blush, in pink sprint on my cheeks.

So what do you think? I really enjoyed shooting this and playing with my make up, and creating conceptual looks. If you want me to do more looks like this, let me know.
