So just incase ye've all been hidden under a rock for over the past month, Pantone the 'Powers That Be' who control all things 'Colour' named Marsala as this year's colour of the year. This will basically influence what we see on the runways in regards to fashion as well as whet makeup brands release in terms of colour and shade selection.
Marsala, named after a wine & a somewhat browned red colour, is described as a 'subtly seductive shade'. It is one of those truly versatile colours that works both as a neutral or as a pop of contrasting colour depending on what it's paired with.
I don't know about you guys but my own skin can change drastically from how it is during the summer to the winter and I absolutely have to change up my skin and foundation routine to adapt to these changes and to try & have it look it's best despite various skin concerns.
My no.1 skin concern at the moment is dehydration which not only can exaggerate fine lines and skin texture but can also leave your foundation looking patchy and powdery after a few hours.
In this video I share how I prep my skin and share what products I'm currently using to achieve a healthy and relative flawless looking base.

Hey Guys :)
I picked some of my favourite bits from my latest 'Shiv's Stash' collective haul and created this pretty, warm makeup look, as a way of distancing myself a little from the bolder, darker looks I had been knocking out over the Christmas period.
I love a gold eye but they can often look very same-y same-y, which is where this beautiful Inglot #68 Body Sparkle comes into play to add a little interest and uniqueness!
