Body Party

I’m not usually the greatest at picking up new music, and I’m definitely a stick-with-my-classic-faves kinda person, but Ciara is one of those artists whose albums I bought on CD (anyone remember those?) and I was a big fan so I am so glad to see she’s back making music.

Ciara is looking amazing in this video and I’m definitely inspired by her two makeup looks, her ombré hair (I don’t want this trend to end, it suits everyone) and her 90s inspired track pants and vest combo.

The vampy lip she’s sporting in the house party scenes of the video were all the rage on NY Fashion Week catwalks, ranging from ruthless reds and passionate plums to hues as deep as aubergine.



Rihanna has also been seen rocking a similar plum toned lip, notably at her Rihanna for River Island launch.

I’m yet to find my perfect plum but recently during my Instagram #5daymakeupchallenge I came up with a dupe using Nightmoth lipliner and everyone’s favourite red, Ruby Woo.


I definitely want to give the shimmery grey shadow look a try, I’m sure that combined with a nude lip the way Ciara wears it in this video, that it’s a look that could work for anyone.


Body Party is a pretty sensual tune with luscious lyrics, wicked video imagery from the legendary Director X, as well as some pretty steamy choreography.

I’m loving it already so hopefully this will be a start to some success for the singer, who has been struggling to keep any attention in recent years. Ciara’s upcoming album, self titled Ciara is due to drop on the 9th of July.

    I’ve found my perfect plum! It’s by Mavala and I think it’s called Dahlia. It looks like a shimmery rebel (MAC) but when you put it on its more plum and less pink like the MAC.

    Now Ciara! Oooh child! She be werkin it boo!

      Ooh, I’ve never heard of Mavala! I’ll have to look into it, though I’m not a massive fan of shimmery lip products usually.

    Hey! This will seem totally random – bear with me,

    Saw your comment on another blog about Elemis products and how you used to work at a salon that used Elemis…. I wanted to know if the salon size version of elemis products has the same expiration point as the smaller/regular sized one? I’m getting a really good deal on salon size version of their purifying lavender mask, and know that the regular version has a ‘use by 6 months from dt of opening’ expiration …but cant find any such info for the salon size version online. Dont think using up 250 ML of a mask is doable in 6 months unless you actually do run a salon:P …but all the other ‘supersize’ versions (of say Bliss) usually have a 24 month use-by date….

    can you recall anything at all? any help greatly appreciated. gypsy696 at gmail dot com
