WHY 

Okay so I was having a fab time when I found a “beauty outlet” shop with Stila products that were practically half price, I grabbed a ton of it and just before paying texted my mum to check if it was vegan. 

But no, they decide to rub make up in little bunnies eyes to make sure we can slap it on our face. When did our vanity become more important than an animals quality of life? It pisses me right off. 

But anyway I got some B. face wipes which I ran out of decades ago so my face will thank me for that. 

I’m thinking of doing a giveaway at 250 followers, what kind of things would you be interested in? Let me know! 

Goodbye for now little buns!

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-

DSC_0464

– makeup look, keep reading!

DSC_0446

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.

DSC_0448

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

DSC_0449

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

DSC_0450

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.

DSC_0456

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.

DSC_0457

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.

DSC_0453

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.

DSC_0458

Like so!

DSC_0459
DSC_0460
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!

DSC_0462

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

DSC_0463

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”.

DSC_0464
DSC_0466

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

Make up, Hair and Outfit! | Graduation

Hi everyone! And no, it’s not my graduation, I’m not that smart. So anyways, this is my make up, hair and outift post from my brothers graduation yesterday..as you probably guessed by the title.

DSC_0315

As per usual, here’s my before face. I moisturised and used my MAC strobe cream all over to give me that dewy look.

DSC_0316

After applying my Illamasqua skin base with a smidgen of my bourjois foundation as I tanned a little the day before, I just went in with my MAC pro longwear concealer in NC15 to highlight because I’m not completely predictable at all.

DSC_0317

I then used a teeny tiny bit of bronzer to contour my cheekbones, a light dusting of a dark pink blush to give me some colour and then applied both Benefits high beam and my usual make up revolution powder highlight using the ‘strobing’ method.

DSC_0318

After priming my eyes with the Nars smudge proof eyeshadow primer I put “Backdoor” out of the Urban Decay Smoked palette in my outer corner and crease.

DSC_0319

I then blended that out to remove any harsh lines and added more if I felt it was necessary

DSC_0321

Next I used “Barlust” for my outer lid colour and “mushroom” as I got closer to my inner corners.

DSC_0322

I then placed “backdoor” on my lower lash line and blended that out. To finish I lined my eyes with the Avon extend felt tip liner and then used both my MAC falsh lashes extreme black mascara and then my maybelline the rocket waterproof mascara to make sure it didn’t run down my face. I also filled in my eyebrows with the anastasia dip brow pomade in “dark brown” and set them with the maybelline brow drama.

DSC_0324

I just popped on my go to lip colour and was done with my make up!

DSC_0326

For my hair I just curled it using the Babyliss diamond curls wand and tied back the front pieces of my hair so that my head didn’t look too massive!

DSC_0332

For my outfit I wore this black, long sleeved midi(?) dress from next that was on sale for £9, my new look denim jacket, a silver necklace from Matalan that was on sale for £4, a black clutch that was gifted to me, a black hat from next that was also on sale for £10 and I actually had two different pairs of black heeled boots that I switched between!

DSC_0348

You can kind of get the jist a bit in this picture! It ended up being a little too windy for the hat.

So I hope that you liked this post and got a few ideas for any up and coming events! Until next time, goodbye for now little buns!

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!

Prom makeup 2015

Hey everyone! I’ve just done my cousin and her friend’s make up and I thought I would briefly go through it! 

  
For Alice’s makeup she wanted it a bit more full on so I went with a gold smokey eye with a navy accent to match her dress.

  
Excuse the glasses mark! To get a nice crisp line I just aligned some cellotape with where her eyebrow would end because I didn’t want to angle it too far upwards.

On her lips I used a plumb lipstick and gloss to complement her dress and not be too over the top with her eye makeup.

For Becky’s make up it was more natural looking so I used the smashbox liquid halo foundation to give a light coverage & kept everything pretty light apart from the lipstick. I just filled her brows in lightly and didn’t really alter the shape of them so that she didn’t feel too done up.

  
I hope you enjoyed this quick post and got a little inspiration! Good bye for now little buns!

Get Ready With Me | Beach day!

Hi Guys! With the weather (hopefully) getting warmer as the days go by, I thought I would show you my hair, make up and outfit for the beach! Little fact- I hate the beach, so if you’re like me and are trying to be really enthusiastic even though you don’t want to go, worry no further, I have you covered.

DSC_0286

I started with my usual B.Ready moisturiser which has SPF 15 in it to protect my skin from any sun damage. I also used my MAC strobe cream on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, chin, cupids bow and the middle of my forehead. Pretty much anywhere where you would apply a highlighter.

DSC_0287

For my base I didn’t want anything too heavy so I used a little bit of my L’Oreal True Match foundation in “Rose Ivory” which also has SPF 17 for added protection. I then went in with some Revlon Colour Stay concealer to hide my (designer…I wish) bags. For a little extra coverage I used my busted MUA powder in shade 3- I think, just to give me a bit of colour!

DSC_0288

For bronzer, blusher and highlighter I used my Urban Decay Flushed palette in “Native”, it is so quick and easy and super pigmented! The bronzer is quite warm so as I contour my cheekbones I just make sure to blend it upwards so that it doesn’t look muddy and gives me that perfect sun kissed look!

DSC_0289

For my eyes I started with the Nars smudge proof eye shadow primer so that my eye shadow doesn’t disappear! I then FORGOT TO TAKE PICTURES (well done me) but used the Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 1 palette and started with the colours “Fade” and “Must” in my crease and under my eyes. Then I popped “Luna” on my lid to brighten my eyes and used the George white eye liner in my waterline to also make me appear more awake than I actually am! To give my lashes more volume I used the NYC High Definition liquid eye liner and just made a thin line along my top lash line. Next I curled my lashes as per usual and coated them with the Benefit They’re Real mascara.

DSC_0290

I followed that with my normal brow routine but used a lot less product than usual because I didn’t want to look too ‘made up’ to go to the beach (ha, get it??).

DSC_0291

To finish my make up I used my NIvea Lip butter in caramel cream, I swear I could eat this, my Lacura lip liner (surprise, surprise) to neaten the perimeter of my lips and then my Tanya Burr lip gloss in “Picnic in the park”. Et voila!

DSC_0284

For my hair I kept it SUPER simple and just chucked it up in a bun because who wants sandy, tatty, wind swept hair? Not me.

DSC_0285

I also laughed far too much at how stripey my hair is.

For my outfit I used wore an old dress with a denim jacket because summer is not my thing and this is the only thing I own that is relatively summery. I also wore my cream high top converse and actually wore tan tights because I there is nothing that drives me more insane than sand sticking to your legs. And it meant I didn’t have to tan.

DSC_0283

And for anyone who is interested my nails are colour trend “scene” from Avon (and also very messy) with the diamond shatter top coat on my ring finger.

DSC_0282

DSC_0281

I hope you enjoyed this post and I helped you out in some way! I’m off to have a prom make up rehearsal for my cousin and her friend (wish me luck!) so I will see you on the other side! Goodbye for now little buns!
