Real Housewives of Cheshire #RHOCheshire

Who has been tuning into Real Housewives of Cheshire on ITVBe? I have had the pleasure of looking after Stacey Forsey for the series.

Stacey and I came up with her signature look together. After doing Staceys makeup on many occasions I knew exactly what she would like.

We keep skin looking like skin, fresh and dewy with a little contour. A classic bronze smokey eye followed by a pop of peach on the cheeks and a nude lip colour.

This is Staceys go to look, for more information on what products are used or lessons in how to achieve this look email info@gillianrafferty.com

New find NYX Cosmetics

I've noticed NYX lip products appearing in my news feed on a more regular basis lately especially since they have become available from boots so I thought I'd see what the fuss is about. I've been testing NYX Soft Matt Lip Cream. I've always been more into lipstick than gloss because it lasts longer, looks more polished and your hair doesn't get stuck in it. My ultimate nude lipstick is Marc Jacobs Moody Margot. I bought three shades of NYX London(nude) Cannes(rose) and Athens (peach). The smell is like a sweet toffee and the pigment is brilliant. They have a great price point too £5:50 However on using them I was left a little disappointed. I'd expect a Matt lipstick to last a while on my lips and this didn't happen, I had to reapply before lunch time. But more annoyingly with every reapplication my lips became really dry. I do use other liquid lipstick and this doesn't happen. Stila stay all day liquid lipstick and Laura Mercier paint wash liquid lip colour are my favourites plus they have a great selection of colours too. So after buying 3 of these I could have bought one really nice one instead....
