If you’ve been subscribed to Rave Review since the beginning you would have learnt two things about me. One, I absolutely love the colour pink; and two, makeup makes the world go round. Makeup for me is one of those wonderful commodities the world has to offer. I just adore it. My favourite brand is undoubtedly CHANEL, the history behind it, and what it represents today is as strong as it was the day that it began. 

Coco Chanel said it best when she said ‘“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.” 


So what is it about makeup that led to such an obsession so to speak? It’s the way makeup can make you feel as a woman thats so special. It’s the magic it creates, the flaws you can hide and the features you can enhance. I’m a firm believer that makeup will enhance your natural beauty, and play-with your favourite features. 

My collection is very special to me. I have spent years building up exactly what I love and what I know works best for my own personal style. I love buying different foundations at a time! A good foundation creates the perfect canvas on which to paint. My absolute favourites at the moment is very old school. Its the MAC Face and Body Foundation. I use shades C1 and C3, mixed together to create my favourite shade. I am also loving the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation, Chanel Vitamlumiere Aqua and Matte Velvet, plus the DIOR Airflash is flawlessness in an aerosol form.  

When it comes to eyes, I love them all. Liners, mascara’s, eyeshaodow singles and tons versatile palettes. There’s nothing better than a neural day look, and a little bit of black in the outer vee adding that bit of glam going into a night look. Another thing I love to do with makeup is bronzing, highlighting and contouring. Every woman needs to know how to do this. You can slim your face down and naturally bronze where the sun would hit your face, and then highlight your central features so it looks like you are glowing from within. My favourite tools to do this? Concealer sticks that are darker than your foundation works best as a contour. I love the LA Girl High Definition Concealers in Natural and Bronzed. They’re affordable and make a statement. I am a highlighting queen; honestly honeys I love dripping in champagne gold. The glowier the better.  


So with all this makeup where is a girl meant to keep it all? Thanks to the stunning ladies at GlamCubes, makeup storage is now a wish and an order away. We are obsessed with these designer Makeup Organisers, and they are a worthy winner for todays Rave Review. The black organisers and bling bling handles are to die for!

You can even have one designed to fit your own needs and personalised. They are super strong, stable and won’t break so you can fit so much in them.
