I am still enjoying the Anita Grant Eyeshadows I received – Thanks Anita! And thought I would share another little step by step of a look I wore recently.

I am sure my readers know me well enough by now to know that I cannot walk past a makeup shop without splurging on a Lipstick, or 12.

I used last weekends galaxy nailart as a base for this design. Using last weeks mani is a great way to save your favourite look for a little longer by breathing new life into…
