SPRING 2013 beauty has gone back to the future with space age metallic lids, as seen on the catwalks of Giorgio Armani, Gucci and Versace. The make-up may seem reminiscent of Alien vs. Predator, but who can’t turn down a shimmering silver smokey eye?

If you can’t resist looking like It girl of the moment Cara Delevingne, then The Live Scene’s version of Chanel’s ultra-modern trend will make sure you’ll reach Top Model status in no time.

Apply 17’s BB cream for flawless skin – the added SPF 15 will also give you protection against the sun (or lack of it)! Now onto the brows! This season strong eyebrows are the go-to, with celebs such as Lily Collins, Camille Belle and The Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev all leading the bushy brow brigade. Fill in your brows with Benefit’s Brow zing to get clean, smooth brows – but don’t go overboard, we don’t want to look like the cast of Desperate Scousewives!

Once you’re all browed out, sweep Daniel Sandler’s silver eye shadow across your lids, and up to the base of your eyebrows. Build up the colour until it turns into a dark metallic tone. To make yourself look more awake, try placing the shadow on the inner corners of your eyes. Then line them with Rimmel’s soft kohl pencil in Jet Black to make your peepers stand out. Finish your futuristic eyes off with two coats of Rimmel’s Volume Flash Scandal’Eyes mascara.

Even though it’s Spring, the cold weather can wreak havoc on your lips. Banish dry, chapped lips with Lancôme’s Juicy Tubes in Fraise. Check out my Lancôme juicy tube review here.

Will you be joining the space-age tribe this season?

SO you’re probably wondering where the hell has Sarah been? Well here’s a little catch up on the life of a third year journo!

These past three months have been so hectic! Most of you will probably know or have an idea about what it’s like being a third year at uni, and I can definitely say that it’s hard work! Aside from the assignments, it’s hard to find the balance between uni, other commitments, having a social life and of course blogging! So here are a few things that I have been up to!

  February issue of PR1, Our B2B magazine project, The Baking Sheet!, Benga at M.E.N Arena

For our magazine assignment we had to create a B2B magazine, so our group chose to do a bakery one! After a month of blood, sweat and tears (okay, maybe not the blood bit) I present to you The Baking Sheet (pictured above)! As well as making the magazine, I have also been a busy bee working on the Style section of PR1, our uni’s magazine. Our February theme was all things Spring, and what better person to feature on our beauty page, than my ultimate girl crush Cara Delevingne?! Of course, it can’t be all work and no play, so me and Ali went to see Benga and Example at the Manchester Evening News arena as a cheeky celebration for getting our uni work done!

Campaigning with Ali, Delicious hot choc & cupcake, March Issue of PR1

Ali applied to be Media Officer at our university, so we got our friends together and all went out campaigning for him! By this time our consumer magazine project, Guilty Pleasures was in full swing, and the March edition of PR1 was done and dusted, so I decided to go to Sheffield to see my two best friends. If you’re ever in Sheffield, stop by Fancies on Ecclesall Road – this place makes the best cupcakes and a decent hot chocolate too!

Guilty Pleasures!, End of term Mad Hatter tea party, First try at leopard print nails

After printing troubles, and with 10 minutes to spare until the deadline, here is Guilty Pleasures (pictured above)! To celebrate the end of term and finishing our magazine projects, we went to an End of term Mad Hatter tea party, I of course went as a Mad Hatter! It was a nice send off for Easter, and it suddenly dawned on me today that we only have two months left of uni! Cue more work, exam stress, and trying to balance everything!
