Results || Bedroom Beauty Challenge


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

How has your week been? Did you read last week's interactive post, 'Bedroom Beauty Challenge'? If you didn't, save yourself the confusion and click HERE to familiarise yourself with the concept and then we're all ready to go go. 'Wake me up, before you go go". Love that song.

The challenge for January was 'Vivacious Vixen' and after seeing some of your creations, I'm impressed!! Feel free to link them below again if you want to.


I have to say, I feel like I let myself down a bit this month. I have had quite a stressful week with a lot more 'life' thrown at me than I thought, so fun beauty time kind of took a bit of a backseat. I had planned to do a red lip and black smokey eyes but alas, this was what I did with limited time. It's the look I wore to a very exciting Illamasqua event last night (more on this later) and I'm really pleased with it.

I think the bronzed brown eyes give the look a very toned down casual effect but the corally orange lips say, 'Hey there ladies and gents, I'm not afraid to wear colour, I'm bold, I'm wild, I live on the edge", (says the lady who blogs with an old lady blanket on her lap in the evening). The bright floral dress and 1960's hair give it a vivacious feel and over all, given the week I've had, I'm happy. I'll give myself a B+ haha. I'll try harder next time.


I've really enjoyed setting this little game, I think we all had a lot of fun. I have all the challenges set out for the next month so I'm looking forward to February and think you'll love it too.

Did you take part? Do you think you will next time? Feel free to give it a go over the weekend and leave your link here for everyone to find you!



Toodlepip!

  4. Aww I like your look :-) It makes me think of those posy magazine adverts for bottles of perfume that make me think "Phwoar if I buy that perfume I'll be all sexy and sultry and what not" when in actual fact I'll just still be me in my leggings and jumpers, but smelling a bit less like Shake 'n' vac and a bit more like lovely perfume.

  41. Gorgeous! I hope I have time over the weekend to give it a go myself. I'm usually so unadventuous with make up it'll be nice to mix it up for a change.

  42. I love the subtle but shimmery-ness of the eyeshadow with the eyeliner, it really makes your eyes stand out. I often wear these types of colours for a day look so I will definitely try this look! It really suits you and looks gorgeous! Thank you!

  43. Hi Louise! just want to say a quick thank you! You're such an amazing inspirational person and watching your videos and reading your blog always makes me smile! You always have a positive out look on things and I just want to thank you for sharing that with the world! Two other quick things: 1. I love the look you've created! I watched Zoe's Vlog where you wore this and you looked gorgeous!! and 2. for one of your videos or blogs I was wondering if you could do something about slightly cheaper but still good quality make up/skin care? I'm from NZ and things in the UK seem to be so much cheaper and I find it hard to find a good mascara without it costing $30! Big love x

    ReplyDelete
  44. Your look turned out beautifully! I actually didn't attempt it this time because I know I would've done horribly (actually, true story, I was lazy...) but hopefully I will find the confidence and energy to try next time, as this seems like a wonderful idea! :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Aww, you look so beautiful Louise! :) I love this look! I had hoped to participate but didn't have the time. But I'm excited to see the next challenge and hopefully I'll be able to do that one!

  54. Hey Louise! x
    You look absolutely stunning I disagree I think you deserve an A I think a black smokey eye would have undermined the power of the red lips. I love the hair and the pearls you look like a heroine out of a 50's movie. Stunning!
