Party Red Lip - Vanessa Williams/Wilhelmina Slater Inspired Look

Hi there lovelies,

Thank you so much for supporting my blog.  I do hope you like the look that I created.  I was inspired by the picture below of Vanessa Williams in her character as Wilhelmina Slater on Ugly Betty. 

I always find myself admiring Vanessa's make-up.  I may not have her striking blue eyes but I'm rather fond of my baby brown ones :-) 

I think Vanessa Williams is one of the lucky few that just gets more beautiful with each passing year. 

Here are some pics of the look that I created:

15% off Bobbi Brown /Dior /Illamasqua /Smashbox /Origins etc

In case you fancied something from one of these brands and have been holding off, now maybe a good time to buy or better yet get someone else to buy it for you :-)

In Debenhams online in the UK they are currently having 15% off beauty products, which includes Estee Lauder, Illamaqua etc which expires 12 December 2010 but excludes Chanel and some concessions may not be participating.  Free standard delivery is availabe until December, not international orders though sorry.

So if you fancy get the Illamasqua liquid metal in Enrapture that I used in my recent party look video click here to view then you can now pick it up for £14.45 instead of £17, and cream blushes are reduced to £13.60 from £16.  This is the look I did using Enrapture:-

And you can pick up Dior products in this offer too, the Diorskin Poudre Shimmer Amber Diamond is now £26.77 reduced from £31.50. 

Debenhams are also offering 30% discount off gifts.  I love Debenhams!

John Lewis are having a price match promotion too! I've spotted they are offering 15% discount on Estee Lauder and Bobbi Brown which is brilliant as Debenhams don't stock Bobbi Brown.  They may well be other brands discounted but I'm afraid you'll have to search around the site to find out.  Standard delivery is free for orders over £30.

Also, don't forget to buy via a cashback website to earn money on the money you spend, I always use Topcashback site it's free and Debenhams currently have a special 5.05% cashback rate, which ends tomorrow so you could get 20% off, although cashback is never guaranteed, I've never had any probs getting paid out from Debenhams.

If you take a look and spot any major bargains you'd like to share with me that would be great to hear.
