The Royal Wedding 2011

So today at 11am was the wedding of Prince William and Catherine (Kate) Middleton took place at Westminster Abbey, William first met Kate in 2001, while both were students at the University of St Andrews. Their engagement, which began on 20 October 2010, was announced on 16 November 2010.
How cute are these two, she is so classically beautiful and seems so elegant, I LOVED her dress it was designed by English designer Sarah Burton (at Alexander McQueen). It featured a lace applique bodice and skirt, and veil. Middleton wore her hair down, with a tiara. The lace, detailing a rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock, was hand-made by the Royal School of Needlework, based at Hampton Court Palace.
I also adore the face instead of asking for wedding gifts they set up ''The Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton Charitable Gift Fund'' which focuses on assisting charities such as 'The New Zealand Christchurch Earthquake Appeal', 'The Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary', 'The Royal Flying Doctor Service', and 'The Zoological Society of London'

Lastly how stuunning was her sister and that simple but classic bridesmaids dress she wore! The whole event was perfection
 I wish them a happy and successful marriage

Collaboration......Impulse Body Spray with Barry M lipgloss packs

So from May until June, Barry M and Impulse have teamed up to launch a duo of an Impulse body spray and a Barry M lipgloss - for just £3!!! Yes the lipgloss alone costs more than that usually (according to the advertisement I saw in a magazine it's worth £6 for both products seperatley)

There is 3 different packs 'Into Glamour' which comes with a clear vanilla lipgloss, 'Very Pink' which comes with a strawberry flavoured pale pink lipgloss & 'Tease' which comes with a caramel lipgloss. Get your hands on yours from today ONLY at Boots, Superdrug and Tesco.

I think the Impulse body sprays smell FAB and I love Barry M's lipglosses they look, smell and TASTE amazing I wish they were giving away my favourite which is the bright pink bubblegum flavour one but oh well.....I want to try refrain from picking up them all and I don't really get excited about clear lipglosses so think my fave will probabaly  be a toss up of 'Very Pink' and 'Tease'

My Shopping Trip/Khaki Liner FOTD....

So today I went shopping to leeds with my mum and I got some fab stuff in H&M and Primark....I'll blog about them soon or maybe video somethings as I STILL haven't used my new camcorder im so bad! So I decided to wear my thick chunky knit jumper dress (with leggings) and thought I would do a similar colour on my eye I didn't want necessarily a full eye of khaki shadow SO after seeing quite a few bloggers mention coloured liners alatley (and im my Green eyes blog a while back I mentioned Leona Lewis wearing green liner....you can check that here) I decided anyway to do a 'khaki liner' look, now im sure you have heard before that for a softer alternative to liquid or gel liner I sometimes use a black eyeshadow applied with an angled brush....well as the only coloured liners I have are bronze, blue and turqouise I improvised by using a khaki eyeshadow from my Manly 120 pallette....I kept a pretty bare eye and just used a primer and abit of natural colour beige shadow first then applied the khaki shadow and some black shadow on the waterline.

Above is the full finished look, I wanted to stay pretty natural on the lips (although how fab would a coral colour have looked) I just used a brown/nude lipstick ('Birthday Suit' by Rimmel) and added bronzed cheeks, The mascara I AM LOVING! It seriously is my new love......and it is 'Clinique High Impact' I think it's the same one they gave away with Glamour magazine a few month back but I got mine as a sample from my friend who worked at clinique ages ago I just never used it until I found it the other day in with some other old make up, and it seriously puts my old favourite 'l'oreal telescopic to shame, I used telescopic the other day after I found this again and my eyes felt naked! I think this is around £15 full price and I definatley will be purchasing it I just wish I had bought Glamour mag now!

I teamed my khaki jumper with one of my fave pairs of flats (Primark bargains aaaaaaaaaaages ago) and my all time fave handbag which is this beige Fiorelli studded one this is a couple of years old now but I still love it, it's so versatile and not too big not too small LOL

And also not forgetting my big blingy earrings these feel so lightweight unlike alot of big earrings and bigger the better in earrings haha, my nail polish is Barry M 'Mint' which A) Doesn't look like turqouise in real life like it does in the pic & B) So doesn't go with this outfit but oh well crap happens ha ha!

I had a fab day theres no-one I love shopping with more than my mum,  The boy gets too bored looking at girlie things haha but my mum is perfect for it! Im very tired now waiting for the only way is essex to come on TV and I think I am going to write up a post to schedule for tomorrow....

Hope you have all had great weekends/bank holidays :)

Help Save Childrens Heart Surgery Unit (http://www.chsf.org.uk)

 So on Saturday me and Ash went to Leeds to promote his CD and there was this big adorable bear......ok I lie big scary bear as I HATE things in costumes but sure it was a nice guy under the suit really LOL anyway it was trying to entice people to sign a petition to keep the Childrens heart surgery Unit at the Yorkshire Heart Centre in Leeds open as it is at risk of closure so of course we signed it and then Ash FORCED me to have the pic taken! So I thought i'd share it on my blog as thought some of my lovely followers would like to help a good cause

The unit provides specialist surgery and care to children and if it closed, hundreds of children who require life-saving surgery each year would have to travel long distances, possibly hundreds of miles to another facility. This could put their lives in greater jeopardy.

It would also cause severe distress for the patients and their families, and would see the end of a great team of spcialist surgeons and experienced nurses, who have worked so hard to provide unrivalled service and care.

The Childrens Heart Surgery Unit MUST remain open.

If you agree, please sign this petition HERE or visit the CHSF (Childrens Heart Surgery Fund) website (http://www.chsf.org.uk) for more information

Here's a video I also found

New stuff :) Rimmel Red Lipstick and W7 Gel Liner Review.....and a miracle spot cure?!

So this post is mainly about 2 products my PERFECT red lipstick and my first gel eyeliner I picked up,

I'll start off with the lipstick, it's Rimmel Moisture Renew in 'Rose Passion (80)' and this is the first moisture renew lipstick I have tried from Rimmel but in general I love Rimmel as a company and for products, I love this one also because it comes in a purple metallic casing which is so pretty,
Excuse my chipped nail polish in the pics it was just before I changed it LOL (yes it really was haha).....anyway this applies so creamy and soft and it really is moistourising not only that but the main plus is its LONG WEARING! It does slightly stain the lips when you try to remove it but I can't express what a bright colour it is, it is a vibrant (orange toned) red and I do mean v-i-b-r-a-n-t LOL I did find it abit overpowering to wear at first but if you team it with neutral eyes it looks very eyecatching and pretty here's a swatch:
I would highly recommend these im not sure if these are no discountinued as I got mine in a discount shop but I have had a look online and plenty of sites have this available so if you are a similar colourings to me and looking for that perfect red I strongly recommend this, I took some snaps of me wearing it too.....

So next up is the gel eyeliner it's 'W7 Paint the Line' that I got I have never tried gel liner always wanted to get the maybelline one EVERYOOOOOONE raves about buy every time i'm in my superdrug I do not see it LOL so I spotted this yesterday and as it was only a couple of pounds I picked it up, when I got home I realised it was probably cheaper than usual as it was 'black/glitter' not just 'black' but when on and swatched it actually isn't glittery which is a good thing for me but a bad thing for people that bought it and may have wanted the glitter :-s

Now with it you get a brush, the brush actually isn't terrible but it isn't the best or great, the gel itself I found not to be very pigmented, I often apply black eyeshadow as liner using an angled brush for a softer look than liquid and when you put this gel liner over that it looks quite good (im wearing it in the above pic of me wearing the Rimmel lipstick) but that is just an added hassle, I wouldn't really recommend it for people wanting a good quality every day decent gel eyeliner but it was great for a newbie to gel eyeliners like me to make sure I could apply it decently and get a feel for it, so I now am definatley going to buy a better gel liner BUT one thing I can say about this (when worn over the eye shadow like I mentioned) is it LASTS, I had a 6hr shoot yesterday I put it on around midday and I didn't get home until like 11pm and had been in a absoloutley boiling room full of heavy studio lights and it didn't run or really budge so I do give it a big thumbs up for that,
You can even see from the top swatch it isn't strongly pigmented and I would have preferred an angled brush as thats so much easier for creating cat-eye eyeliner flicks, but who am I to complain LOL

Whilst I was in town I picked up a new pink polka dot make up bag just for my handbag as my other one was abit grubby looking and I was bored of it and also got some Sudocrem (nappy rash cream LOL) as I read Cheryl Cole uses this as a spot miracle cure and then I saw an interview with some of the girls from 'The only way is essex' (TV show) and they also said they were using it and slathering it on their faces before bed and apparentley you wake up with fantastic skin but to be honest I have been trying this for a few days and the first day I had no spots to start with and when I woke up had a few very little ones so thats not good but I am going to persevere and see what happens, I shall keep you updated :)

On another note I FINALLY got my new camcorder today im so exicted I can finally make proper youtube make up vids and stuff instead of using my webcam and been really constricted to what I could film.....so expect some new vids over the weekend, I have done a few before but there's only a few (do subscribe to my channel though on www.youtube.com/vikkigabrielle then you will get my updates I hope to have some done over the weekend)

FOTD purple smokey eye and nude lips

So today I did a purple quite dark look for such a warm day LOL but I wanted to wear my new SLEEK True Colour 'baby doll' lipstick I mentioned in my last post and thought the nude colour would look great with dark eyes (obviously the gorge signature look of Kim kardashian although this is NOT a kim kardashian inspired post or anything!) anyway the purple I used was an MUA eye dust in shade 4 (a pigment) the intensity of this is fab its a very charcoaly dark purple and abit on the grey side so different to the usual smokey black colours, This was the look I ended up creating (more finished snaps at the end of the post)

I basically used the pigment all across my eyelid and used a silver eyeshadow which is very shimmery and more like a highlighter on my brow  bone
You can see here the inital colour and before I blended it and after, the eyeshadow is N.Y.C cube in shade 'Tony' I wouldn't use it alone as an eyeshadow but it is great for highlighting and awakening the eyes

Then added liquid liner for more defintion, it's the 2true liquid liner and put on mascara

This is 'Babydoll' in case you didn't catch my post on this check it here, I still need to do a FOTD with the fuchsia it looked fab on my night out on Saturday

Finished off with some beige and lilac feather earrings (primark £1.50 i think) to match my lilac tube top and purple eyecolor :)

If you want to know any other specific products I used let me know in the comments, I normally list them all but I used pretty much the same things (foundation/concealer/mascara/etc) as always so thought I wouldn't repeat myself again LOL just look back at a few of my more recent FOTD posts and it will most likely be them same products just the different pigment and lipstick

AND heres a few pics to finish off with of my finished look, my face melted off by the end of the day haha it has been so warm and all I have done is moan as the boy has been dragging me around all day to look at Macbooks, CDs, etc LOL (the joys of being a DJ's partner haha btw if you are into urban/rnb music you can download his FREE mixCD here http://soundcloud.com/dj-sniper-d-remix-kid/urban-assault-vol-2-2011-mixed it is insanely good I have it on repeat and im not just saying that cos hes mine lol )

Until next time Vikki xoxoxo

Sleek True Colour Lipsticks

These are new out from Sleek and they come in 20 beautiful shades,

They have lovely black packaging quite plain but simple, similar to barry m's lipsticks just more round instead of square, half the range is 'Sheen' and half is 'Matte' the 2 shades I got are 'Fuchsia' and 'Baby Doll'

These are both part of the sheen half I was torn between 'fuchsia' and a matte one which was very very similar just the matte finish instead (which is shade 'Amped') and after half an hour of swatching them both over and over I felt the matte one slightly dragged on my hand and I do think you would need to wear lipbalm under these as they seemed abit drying but the sheen one was really silky so obviously would be more moistourising so chose that, THEN I was torn between 'Baby Doll' a gorgeous nude and 'Pink Freeze' a lovely pinky watermelon colour similar to MACs impassioned, (I decided on Baby Doll as I don't have a really good nude and I think I am going to buy MACs impassioned next time I visit MAC) you can see all the shades here there is orange, berry colours, some sizzling reds and many more you really need to swatch them to understand how beautiful they are! They are priced at £3.99 but in SUPERDRUG are on offer for 2 for £5.99

I am going to wear 'Fuchsia' when I go out tonight, the pigmentation is amazing, I have been dying for a lip colour like this for ages and was going to get 'Candy Yum Yum' at MAC until it sold out on me, although this isn't a dupe of that it is right up my street and  it is a perfect summer bright pink with purple undertones and it is pretty much opaque they may be called sheen but really like I said there is nothing sheer about them, I cannot wait unil Sleek bring out there Lip Tars, the lipsticks go on so easily and last a few hours they just feel 'nice' on too not heavy and they don't dry your lips at all, Babydoll is the perfect nude as it on the baby pink side so you don't get that dreaded 'Concealer looking lipstick' LOL

I took a few pics wearing 'Fuchsia' - {click any pic to enlarge}

The brightness really doesn't show on my camera but it is super bright......but wearable

And then I took some pics of me wearing 'Baby Doll'

If you are a Sleek fan or even a lipstick fan you need at least 2 of these in your life!

Who else has these and what shades are you liking?

Anyone on TUMBLR?!

I have just made a tumblr! My reasons for this is i find my blog (this blog that is LOL) more for detailed posts and like beauty/make up stuff whereas a tumblr I wanted to do more random postings on and very short posts or even just images.....(e.g links to maybe posts here, pic of the days like new modelling pics for example, funny pictures, videos I liked, random quotes, etc) so its going to be less beauty/make up and more life and 'unisex' LOL

Anyway it's very small at the moment as I just got into it tonight any fellow tumblr's follow me its http://vikki-gabrielleworld.tumblr.com/ so basically the same name as this one just replace the blogspot with a tumblr then its easy to remember!

And this won't affect my posts on here at all this will always be my main blog it's like my baby I am slowly building it up and really happy with the amount of people that show me love and follow me on here (hugs to all 220 of you hehe) and I have some great ideas for posts coming up so look out for those :)

I'll follow everyone back who follows it just let me know

So if you follow me on twitter (@vikki_model) you will know im abit of a quote/philosopy obsessive I think theres so many quotes or saying that can always relate to what you're going through whether it be love, heartbreak, friend troubles etc and alot of quotes make you think deeper into life and think about your actions more,one of my favourites its 'Beauty/Popularity fades but morals, values and soul will always be the most important beautiful part of a woman' and I think this is sooo true because theres so many pretty/rich/popular people out there that are just 'that' you know what I mean? Like absoloutley no substance to them, Im not a perfect person in ANY way shape or form, but I know deep down im a good person and regardless of race, age, gender, sexuality or anything if you're nice to me I'll be nice to you, Im a total girls girl (I treat my girls with love whether we're close friends or not I would never be one of them girls who got caught stealing someones man for example! LOL) I hate 2 faced, backstabbing people, Im only young but because of certain things I have been through I think im wiser than my years anyone in this world has the power to hurt us but as I have grown up I have realised DONT LET OTHER PEOPLES MISTAKES HURT YOU....I know this is easier than said but why get upset because someone has treated YOU wrong.....cos thats shame on THEM not YOU so THEY should feel bad, Karma is my favourite word in the world......anyway I thought i'd share a few of my fave quotes....Enjoy :)
  • When you realise whats truly important in life and it makes the thought of the future so exciting 
  • You don't have to argue what you know, and don't debate what you don't know.
  • Everything comes full circle. Be careful what you send out because it's coming back around.
  • Women are sensitive, they over think every little thing and they care way more than they should, but thats what makes their love so strong.
  • You are the victim of your choices.. Change your choices and it will change your life.
  • .When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life
  • There is a big difference between who a man will sleep with and who he will Marry. Make sure you're the latter
  • You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have
  • The TRUTH is a hard pill to swallow, but it's the only one with positive side effects.......sets you free.
  • When you are responsible for your own smile you don't have to worry about anybody taking it away
  • A woman can be your best friend, worst enemy, the girl of your dreams or the bitch you’re scared of. It all depends on how you treat her
  • A REAL Man only wants 1 WOMAN cos to that one he gives his all.....A grown boy wants "WOMEN" because gives all of NOTHING!
  • Picture this: if you're hanging onto someone that's trying to let you go, you're only getting dragged thru the dirt!
  • Fellas if you don't love her right somebody else will and then it'll be too late for you to get it right.
  • It's ok 2 be inspired by someone but be bold enough 2 be yourself! God makes originals not copies.
  • Don't chase the money, chase the dream; and if you're dreaming of only money that's a nightmare
  • Without pain, there would be no suffering, without suffering we would never learn from over mistakes. To make it right, pain and suffering is the key to all windows, without it, there is no way of life 
  • Don't limit yourself to the expectations of others who have never been where you wanna go
    I think I'll leave you with this one from Marilyn Monroe:
    ''The truth is I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me and I just wouldn't argue with them'' I think this is significant to Marilyn Monroe as she was a more complex person than people realised, and comes across as mysterious, people just assumed what she would be like and she just let them think that as she couldn't be bothered to argue with people that didn't bother finding out who she really was and what she was really like, Underneath the move star and glamorous sex kitten persona she was just a small town girl trying to find someone to love her and treat her well and anyway as I was saying I like this quote as if you think about it we judge people on a daily basis or get judged soI think alot of us can relate to this or have an understanding of it and think its quite a deep, beautiful quote. ANYWAY normal posting will be back tomorrow I have had a pretty tough/rough (same thing LOL) week but im soldiering on and will have some beauty related stuff for over the weekend for all of you :)

    Pretty in Pink......Pink eyeshadow FOTD with a Turquoise NOTD

    So I decided to randomly do a pink look for when I ventured out this weekend, Because I was wearing quite a simple outfit (Black dress) I wouldn't normally wear bright and I don't think I have ever worn pink eyeshadow LOL,

    I picked up a few Products in Superdrug one was a lovely fuschia lipstick from the MUA range (shade 3) this is me the night before before I went bowling just trying it out (here it was teamed with the Lilac eyes I had been wearing all day) {Click pics to enlarge}

    It is much more pinker in person so anyway here is the finished product of my 'Pink Look' using this lipstick these 2 pics were with flash and the rest are just in natural lighting if it looks slightly different....

    I started by doing all the usual steps (foundation, concealer, eyebrows) I will post all the products at the end, and then used a medium pink first (all Manly 120 pallette but any pinks work) just over my lid and slightly shaded out, I then used a deep purple on my waterline with an angled brush even though you can't see that colour really well
    Then I wanted a brighter pop of colour so used a really bright pink which as you can see from the brush is nearly neon I blended this in the outer corner 'V'

    I did also use a very light shimmery pink on my browbone, to highlight and added a top line of liquid eyeliner and black mascara 
    For the lips I used the fuschia MUA lipstick I mentioned before and a Sleek Pout Polish in 'Pink Cadillac' which adds abit of gloss and conditions lips as this particular shade of MUA lipstick I found wasn't as creamy as a few others I have
    I HAD to team it with these fantastic feather earrings I have I love these my mum bought them me at the end of last year,
    I used no bronzing powder as I thought it would be too OTT and just a girly pink blush to finish
    I tried to get some pics of the night so I could do an outfit post too.....BUUUUT it was one of them nights were I couldn't get a nice photo of me and Ash and he made me stop after a few failed attempts LOL

    My nails were Sleek NAILED 'Turqouise' thats not me on the night it was a pic I had from when I had it on last weekend and thought it showed how bright it was as thats in a pretty dark club......yesterday I added some felt tip marker pen dots which I alwaaaays used to love doing to my nails when I was bored at school LOL it really didn't last as soon as I washed my hands a few times but it was fun to do and looked kinda cute!

    Heres the full list of products I used:
    • Rimmel 25hr foundation (shade 201)
    • Benefit IT stick
    • Bourjois Little Blush Pot (rose d'or)

    • Manly 120 pallette for main colours
    • Benefit Lemon Aid eye primer
    • Rimmel professional eyebrow pencil
    • Barry M black mascara
    • Collection 2000 felt tip liner
    • Maybelline mono shadow 'Delicate rose' to highlight
    • MUA shade 3
    • Sleek Pout polish 'Pink Cadillac'

    Hope everyone has had a fab weekend
    Vikki xoxo
