Famous Baked Bronzer - HAWAII
How amazing is this colour?! Its a bright rustic copper with beautiful shimmer and it looks stunning in the pan as well as on the skin! I would recommend this colour for dark skin tones as the copper tone could have a tendency to make lighter skins appear orange. I would also say this colour would make an amazing eyeshadow! Applied all over the eye lid and blended into the socket line...
Famous Baked Bronzer - MIAMI
This shade would be great as a highlighter to add a bit of warmth to paler skin and also lighten mid toned skin colours. I would describe it as a pale yellowy/gold beige with a golden shimmer and is more of a natural tone to use. I would say this shade is the most muted of all the baked bronzers that Famous offer and it is a gorgeous colour. Available at selected Superdrug stores and...
Famous Baked Bronzers
THE BASICS- Price- £6.49 Quantity- 9g Shades in range- 4 PACKAGING So recently Famous have rebranded and dropped the ‘by Sue Moxley’ to become just the one word. I think this is a smart move as most of the country (myself included!) have no idea who Sue Moxley is.. Anyway the bronzers come in little black pots with large mirrored screw on lids decorated in a...
Famous Baked Bronzer - BALI
This is the last of the baked bronzers in the Famous range and is a lovely shade of coppery bronze with a golden shimmer. Again this shade is great for warming up skin tones and is slightly darker than the Tahiti bronzer with more of a copper tone to it. This shade would be good to use slightly under the cheekbones to define and contour naturally. If using this to contour it needs to be...
Famous Baked Bronzer - TAHITI
I love this shade of golden bronze and this is the most typical ‘bronzer’ colour out of the Famous range. It has a lovely golden shimmer and would work well to warm up the skin if used lightly on the face and body where the sun would naturally kiss. Not to mention it looks so pretty swirling in the pan. Available at selected Superdrug stores and...
So with the Olympics kicking off this weekend with a fab opening ceremony directed by none other than the talented Danny Boyle, how can one not feel slightly patriotic? I created this look by using Sleek’s Pout Paint In Cloud 9, Pin Up and Peek-a-bloo. These are great products and you only need the tiniest amount for great colour and coverage! They are available from Superdrug stores...

Following the success of their Heaven and Earth palette and to the delight of many MUA fans (myself included!) Make-up Academy have released their brand new Undressed Palette. This palette has caused a major buzz in the beauty blogging industry and the words ‘naked’ and ‘palette’ has been thrown around a fair amount. Well, a secret source has confirmed to me that the...
