Park Bom inspired look



Hello everyone, the next video up is going to be a Park Bom inspired look and I hope you guys will enjoy it.  I have loved Park Bom since 'We Belong Together' came out and I've remained a big fan since.  Her purple lenses are absolutely adorable, the ones I'm wearing are BS201 (bella special purples) and you can get them from: 

I think I'm going to get some bangs cut into my hair just like Bom's, what do you think?

Covering Away a Bad Skin Day

One of the biggest learning curves in make-up application and in every girl's life is learning the art of covering imperfections on our faces'.  We all have blemishes and dark circles and I am not exaggerating when I say that I've been looking for my perfect concealer since I even knew what make-up was.

So here are two products I am excited to show you that help cover up my flaws and imperfections and give me the confidence to walk out the door.  But first, a before and after picture is much needed:

Perfectly Covered


So I think the two concealing products that have to be mentioned are these:


Missha Perfect Concealer [Natural Beige]

A small pot of wonder!  I bought this in Hong Kong and it's fantastic at covering dark under eye circles.  I find that it's easy to apply and light-weight enough to wear even when you are looking to wear a little less make-up.  It has great coverage and best of all it looks completely natural to the skin.  I find this works best with a brush as a gentle touch with this product produces better results.  When using this, always remember to pat and never to swipe and then set with a loose powder on top. 


Vichy Dermablend Make-Up


I really like this foundation as it has really top-notch coverage.  It is light enough as a foundation but can also be used a concealer.  It may be expensive and not in a particularly large bottle but this product will last you quite a long time as a little goes a long way.  I find it is best for covering redness and it's been helping to cover my blotchy, dry and red skin well.  You can pick this up at big Boots stores or find it online.  I used the shade no. 25.


I hope you all like it, watch the video to see how well this works!

Peace, Cherry x

Tea in my hair

When I was in Hong Kong I picked up a foam hair dye by Liese and it was in the colour 'Milk tea brown'. 

DSC07144Inside came with everything I needed, including perfect instructions (in three different languages), gloves (good quality ones) and a sachet hair treatment (not so good).DSC07146

Mixing the hair dye wasn't particularly difficult and when you get to grips with it it's actually quite simple. 

My hair has always looked different colour in different lights so I must show you!  Here are some photos of my hair colour before:

I know it's kind of strange.

When applying the hair dye, I found it quite tiring to keep massaging in the mixture to produce the foam in my hair.  Eventually I got there and when there was foam, it made covering all of my hair easy.  For once, I was sure I got every single strand.

And below is my new hair colour.  I really didn't expect it to be as dark as it is.  I thought it was going to come out as a rich, bright blonde (see picture above) but it really has come out a light brown instead.  Overall I'm pleased with the colour though as it's a nice change!
