Autumn walks make up look!

Hello my lovelies! I hope you’re all having a great day, today I am going to show you how I got this-

– makeup look, keep reading!

Here’s my wonderful “before face”, moisturised, primed and ready to rumble. I also applied a bit of the benefit high beam to all of the high points of my face to give that ‘glowing from within’ look.

I then mixed together the Georgio Armani and Illamasqua foundations to give me the right amount of coverage without completely covering every imperfection.

Next I concealed and highlighted with my MAC pro longwear concealer in NC15 and set that with my Rimmel clear complexion powder.

To contour I used the Bourjois ‘chocolate bronzer’ and applied that quite generously to the hollows of my cheekbones, forehead, under my lip and under my jawline. For blush I just used the Estee Lauder ‘plush petal’ and applied it mainly towards the back of my cheeks to keep my face looking lifted. I then highlighted using the makeup revolution vivid baked highlighter in ‘golden lights’ to fake that I am a golden goddess.

I then built up the two matte brown colours in my crease and outer corner of my eyes to make them look more smokey and sultry.

I then added the darker toned pink shimmery colour to the outer side of my lids and the lighter pink shimmery colour on the inner third.

Then I placed the matte brown colours underneath my eye, added a white eyeliner on my water line, and thin black liner on my top lash line and also some small dots in my bottom lash line to make my lashes look thicker.

Like so!

I then filled in my brows with the anastasia dip brow pomade in ‘dark brown’ and applied both the Benefit roller lash and the maybelline ‘the rocket’ waterproof mascara and moved on to lips!

I first chucked on the body shop ‘mahogany’ lip liner- shocker! But it makes my lips look huge so it’s okay

Then for a bit of gloss for those ‘kissable’ lips I added the Elizabeth Arden lip gloss in ‘latte’.

Then after spending forever messing with my hair (it ended up in a braid, since we actually went the beach..in October) I was ready to go!

I hope you enjoyed this post and I look forward to speaking to you again soon! Goodbye for now little buns!

how to

How to: be sick, wait what?

Hello! I’m ill. As you probably guessed, but I’m gonna tell you how to be ill and be okay with it. This also works for when its THAT time of the month. You’re welcome.

First things first, treat yourself. And more importantly, your skin. I like to start with a face mask to give my skin a little boost and to make me feel all pampered. While this is on I like to do something productive like wash my make up brushes or something so that I feel a little bit better about myself.

Then I like to have a lush bath because the scent is amazing and makes my skin feel lovely jubbly! I like to use the Daddy-O shampoo to make my hair less brassy and the Happy Hippy shower gel which smells like lemons, yum!

I then use a bath bomb to treat my skin and make my bath a little bit more interesting! This is “the experimenter” and kind of smells like smoke, but in a good way! There is a video on my instagram if you are interested!

I then like to use a deep moisturiser to help my skin out, it always gets super dry when I’m sick. I couldn’t recommend this moisturiser enough! It is pretty pricey but boy is it worth the money! Keep a look out for it if you go on holiday because they have some fab sales in duty free!

Then its time for “netflix and chill”.. I always like to stick  film on while I am again doing something productive and enjoyable like editing a youtube video or something. Oh and also eating, that is great. Be sure to stay hydrated, if you have a sore throat don’t have too much dairy (even though it feels temporarily soothing) and try hot water mixed with some honey and lemon juice!

And last but certainly not least- NAP TIME! Naps are the best when you are sick, and because you’ve already been kind of productive, it is completely justified.

I haven’t done the last step yet so I better be on my way! Goodbye for now little buns!
