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!

Kylie Jenner inspired make up tutorial!

Hi everyone! I’ve been stuck in a bit of a blogging rut as of late and I feel like everything I write is super boring and not me. So after a lovely holiday and time to relax I have really thought about what I need to do and how. Hopefully it works this time..
So anyway, yeah, tutorial!

DSC_0452

For my foundation I just mixed my new Giorgio Armani foundation with a darker bourjois one because believe it or not- I’m actually tanned! I also added some of the Benefit High Beam for a beautiful glow.

DSC_0453

To conceal and highlight I just used my favourite MAC pro longwear concealer in NC15 and plonked it pretty much everywhere, as you can see in the picture above..hopefully.

DSC_0454

For the rest of my face makeup I contoured with the bronzer from the urban decay flushed pallete in “native”, used the sleek rose gold blush to add a bit of colour and then a make up revolution highlighter with more gold tones in it to give me a warmer highlighted look.

DSC_0456

…like that.

DSC_0457
DSC_0459

For my eyes I started with MAC “cork” and a little bit of “patina” to start to create some shadows and definition.

DSC_0460

Next I used “faint” to darken this up and “naked 2” to blend it out more, I also put this underneath my bottom lash line to make sure my eyes didn’t look too top heavy. I then added “foxy” to my lid and lined my upper lash line and added a teeny tiny wing as Kylie doesn’t appear to wear cat eye looks.

DSC_0461

I then added some of the Benefit rollerlash mascara…

DSC_0462

before adding falsies and filling my brows in with the anastasia dip brow pomade in “dark brown”.

DSC_0463

For those classic Kylie Jenner lips I just (over)lined my lips using my favourite “mahogany” lip liner by The Body Shop and my make up revolution ‘happy lips’ lip stick in “love nude”.

I just finished off my spritzing my face with some fix+ et voila!

Natural…ish make up look!

Hi everyone- again, sorry for the delay in posts, everything has been so chaotic, I feel like the days are just flying by! But I will have TWO posts up for you today and hopefully a make up, hair and outfit post up on Wednesday! Anyway, let’s crack on!

DSC_0292

Sooo here is my face (and bog eye) before touching it, take it in, like it, love it, hate it, whatever, just enjoy it (comment if you know where that’s from!!).

After putting on my usual moisturiser I applied the MAC strobe cream on where I would…willl highlight to give me the “glowing from within” thing that people are supposed to want, I don’t know.

As I primer I used the Nivea men’s post shave balm because Nikki told me to and oh my Jesus.. it’s the best discovery EVER! Your foundation will literally stick to your face and will not go anywhere.

I then used both the Illamasqua skin base and the L’oreal true match foundation in the lightest shades (surprising, I know) with a beauty blender to give me that medium-full coverage. Next I went in with my Bourjois foundation in “Dark beige” to contour and MAC pro longwear concealer in NC15 to highlight, like so…

DSC_0294

I just blended it in using my beauty blender et voila.

DSC_0295

Even though it’s a lot of product, it still looks natural (in my opinion). Also my nose is hideous from the side, but my cheekbone looks gooood, and that’s my bad one.

I just went over that with the bronzer, a peachy/pink blush and highlighter from the make up revolution blush palette in “sugar and spice”.

DSC_0296

As you can see there are still no harsh lines but it just has a bit more ‘oomph’!

DSC_0297

For my eyes I started with “drama” from the make up revolution iconic pro 1 palette and put that on my lid and the bit of my ‘eye sag’ that is hidden.

DSC_0298

I then added “afflicted” really sloppily in my ‘crease’ and what I wish was my crease.

DSC_0299

I then blended that out and upwards to create a nice gradient affect. And added more until I was satisfied. To balance it out I just added “afflicted” to my lower lash line too.

DSC_0300

This is me trying to show you the hidden bit of my eye sag, I’m very professional like that.

DSC_0301

I then used the NYC liquid eyeliner that is like a felt tip to create a thin line along my lash line to make my lashes look more voluminous and so that you know I have make up on, I want to look natural but so that you can tell I made an effort.

DSC_0302

To finish my eyes just filled my eye brows in a bit and added the Benefit they’re real! mascara on both top and bottom lashed to make my eyes look a little bigger.

DSC_0303

I added a mix of nude/pink and brown lip products to give me a “your lips but better” kind of colour!

TA DAAA

DSC_0306

Also, do you reckon I changed my hair a bit?! I was really hating my hair and close to just shaving it off and buying a wig so I went into work on Monday with a photo of a girl’s hair a liked and let Paige do what she wanted! I know that you’re definitely not reading this but if you are Paige, you are a hair God and thank you SO much.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Goodbye for now little buns!
