bless her, she's really young and sweet and orange.


I know, I know, I am ridiculously behind on this one....but I have recently become obsessed with the British TV show, The Only Way Is Essex. In my defense - I'm Canadian! I'd heard so much about this show for ages, so when I visited England last October, I picked up some of the DVDs.

I've been so insanely busy with work, work, and more work, that I hadn't had a chance to watch them. When I came down with a brutal cold a few weeks ago, I was forced to take it easy. So, I started watching TOWIE episodes.


I love love love the drama and the different people on the show. Their life is so totally different than my own, and it is just so glamorous and fascinating. I wish I was just half as glamorous as any of the girls on that show!

Out of everyone thus far, (I am only on Series 2!) my favourite person on the show is Amy Childs. I know that she isn't on for very long, but oh my gosh, her over-the-top, dramatic makeup is so fun! I love crazy glamorous makeup, so I always find her looks really fantastic.


Since I am loving TOWIE so much, I really wanted to channel my obsession into an Amy Childs inspired makeup look! So, here is my TOWIE inspired makeup:




Do you watch The Only Way Is Essex? What do you think of the over-the-top makeup?

  6. In the first picture honestly the eyes make up it's a little bit too much, looks artificial.. it;s just my opinion.

    Great job on the make up!

  27. She's like the UK version of the Jersey Shore.Athough, I think she would be naturally pretty without all of the make up. The over the top makeup kind of makes her look like a porn star....I've had to wear over the top make up for stage performances before..but dang!
    At least you made it look GOOD!! gorgeous love!

  31. I don't watch the show so It's difficult for me to judge. This make-up looks great on you but it's definitely not an "office" make-up version;)

    1. I bought the British versions of the DVD and played them in my computer using VLC media player. It plays anything, regardless of region!
