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!

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…

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

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”.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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!

How to: Clean your room!

Hello everyone! Today I am going to give you some tips on cleaning your room, mainly because I needed to clean it and I’ve had a bit of a mental block and can’t think of what I want to post!

Here’s what my room looked like before (brace yourself)…

So as you can see, I had a lot of work to do! You can also see that none of my room matches because I was waiting to get it redone after 7 years so I didn’t really mind about it not matching for a “few weeks” which turned into 6 months… SOME DAY

Before doing anything, I lit a candle and stuck some tunes on to keep me going. And when I say “some tunes” I mean the same few songs on repeat for an hour and a half because I am obsessed.

I started off by making my bed as that is in the centre (and takes up most of) my room so I’ll feel like I have made progress and won’t give up after 20 minutes.
So that I didn’t get too overwhelmed with it all and again give up after 20 minutes I decided to make a mental note of which order I was going to clean up in.
I started with the two tall drawers next to my wardrobe and binned things I didn’t need but for some reason I had kept, like Costa receipts, plastic bags and little notes. I then put away my sheet music, placed my jewellery on the other side of my room to deal with later and arranged everything in a nicer fashion. I then cleaned it with some tissue and polish because ew dust.
Then I moved onto my dressing table. It was in a pretty bad way. I started by putting away groups of things, for example my make up, then hair related things, then random things like a towel and Goat Simulator, and also two mirrors because for some reason I had three on my dresser as well as the big mirrors right in front of my face, why I don’t know. I then dedusted it (I’m making that a word..dedusted. So aggressive) and moved on to my chest of drawers next to my bed.
Fun fact, I used to think “a chest of drawers” were called “chester drawers”.
I started by putting away the various hand creams I had sprawled across it and moved the teddies back onto my bed. Then I sorted out my jewellery which I had just left in front of my 6 billion year old jewellery box rather than putting it in it and binned any of the gift boxes they had come in because they are lovely but I’m never going to need a cardboard box the size of half a fish finger. I then stuck some candles in front of my extension lead because although I need it out I don’t wanna see it! And obviously dedusted that too.
THEN I moved onto the floor. Not as in I just sat on the floor like “yep, that’s enough”, I just made that my last thing to do because I couldn’t see it as much as I could see all my ‘surfaces’.
I’m not sure if this is a common thing or not but when I’m putting away my washing I like to go through it and split it up into different, smaller piles that are easier to tackle than one big mound that’s been building up for weeks. For example, I split it up into underwear, socks and tights, T-shirts, leggings, pyjamas and then things that need hanging up. Then I can pick up the little piles and put them away in one go! Then I hoovered and changed my bin et voila! DONE

After…

So then obviously I got myself a banana and some peanut butter to eat whilst I wrote this, it was nice. Also, for those who are interested in my progress since my last post, I have lost 4lbs! 😀

And for those interested in one of the songs I am obsessed with, it is “Get loney with me” by George Ezra who the lovely Fiona introduced me to. You should all check out her blog by the way, that’s another thing I’m obsessed with!! So that’s all for today, Goodbye for now little buns!
