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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

Day time spring make up look! | Collaboration with BeautifulBreakable

Hey Everyone! Today I have a pretty exciting (well, for me anyway!) collab for you guys! Along with the amazing Jess from Beautiful, Breakable I have created a spring make up look. I chose to create the day look and Jess chose to create the night look, so go over to her blog to check it out!

So, let’s begin!

DSC_0229

For my base I used my regular moisturiser from B and mixed that with my MAC strobe cream to ensure a dewy finish. I then mixed my L’oreal True Match foundation and my Illamasqua skin base together to make the perfect full coverage foundation that will stay on all day! To conceal and highlight I used my MAC pro longwear concealer in NC15.

DSC_0232

To set that all in place I used my colour correcting peals from Avon, they will also help you give you the perfect dewy finish!

DSC_0230

To give some colour to my skin and contour I used the second shade down on the right of the palette. I just popped this underneath my cheekbones, lightly down either side of my nose, along the top of my forehead, under my lip and under my jaw line. So pretty much everywhere. I also used the peach blush from this make up revolution palette to give me that healthy complexion.

DSC_0231

For my highlighter I used this gold looking baked highligher from make up revolution. I placed this on my cheekbones, chin, brow bone, cupids bow, a little on the bridge of my nose and also used it as my inner corner highlight on my eyes. It gives a beautiful sheen and is more subtle and therefore suitable for day time.

DSC_0233

To create my simple eye look I used the maybelline colour tattoo in “on and on bronze” and slightly blended that out. Then I lined my upper lash line with the Barry M ‘Blink’ waterproof eyeliner. Next I used the maybelline chromatics eye liner in “turn on the teal” for my waterline and blended that out slightly using a small detailed brush with a bit of my sleek “sahara” blush on it (not pictured…oops!). To finish I curled my lashed and used my Maybelline The Rocket waterproof eye liner. I really didn’t plan for my eyes to be nearly all maybelline but they know what they are doing on the eye-front!

DSC_0234

For my brows I used my Anastasia dip brow in “dark brown” and my Maybelline brow drama in “medium brown”.

DSC_0235

To finish the look off I just used my Tanya Burr lipgloss in “picnic in the park”. Et voila!

DSC_0227

I hope you enjoyed this post and have some ideas for your perfect spring make up, don’t forget to hop over to Jess’ blog and check out her make up look!  You can also see my dress for my birthday party in the background… and a splodge of hairspray on my glasses. Well done me. But anyway- until next time..Goodbye for now little buns!

Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation Rmeview

Hey guys! Today I am going to be reviewing Maybelline’s new foundation that has a name that is far too long. Before I start, the kind woman at boots just gave me this to dry out, I didn’t get sent this or anything so my opinions are all genuine blah blah blah let’s start.

DSC_0231

So here is my face with nothing on it, apart from my new nose stud, HELLO! Yeah I got it done yesterday and I’m still super excited about it!

I didn’t use a primer or add a facial oil to the foundation which I have been doing for a while now because I really wanted to push this to the limits as my skin has been really dry at the minute. It looks a little better than usual as I have changed my skin care routine (Would you like to see an updated post on it?) however the winter weather is still drying it out.

The actual foundation is very thin, similar to the L’oreal eau de teint foundation which I really loved but unfortunately was too dark for me, like most foundations. Including this one. However the thin consistency made it super easy to blend out meaning that the colour matched me more with the less I actually used.

It is super lightweight and feels like you have nothing on (I just stroked my face to double check).

I would say that it is a light to medium coverage and is definitely buildable. It is very matt so if you have dry skin like me, don’t use a powder over top!

DSC_0233

As you can see it looks like powder on the skin so be very careful you don’t get cake face. Don’t mind the corner of my lip there, it’s kinda inflamed, sob.

Also, my camera battery died so my after picture is also a picture from about 5 hours later (I went to get my nails done and cleaned the house), but it still looks exactly the same!

DSC_0232

I also wore this foundation all day yesterday and it didn’t settle into any fine lines or dry spots by the time I’d took my make up off at around 10pm! I was super impressed with that! Out of 10 I would give this foundation an 8 just because I typically prefer a more dewy foundation and it is slightly orange toned.  *My nose stud just fell out as I pushed my glasses up and I just had to “repierce” it myself and I fainted and had to take a 20 minute break, just thought I’d let you know*
DSC_0237
I also got both an iphone 4s to replace my samsung brick and my nails done because hell it’s valentines day and if I don’t spoil myself then who’s going to?!
Anyway I’m going to go for a nap now because I can’t feel my legs. Goodbye for now little buns!

beauty, motd

MOTD: Pub Quiz!

Hey guys! So every week we go to the pub quiz on a Wednesday and since I’m off today I thought I would shake it up a lil bit with my make up!

DSC_0205

So yeah here is my face and here is a list of what is on it:

FACE
B. Ready day cream
Smashbox liquid halo foundation & L’oreal True Match Foundation
Collection lasting perfection concealer
Rimmel Clear complexion face powder
Bourjois chocolate bronzer (that’s not the real name but lets be honest it should have been)
Estee Lauder “plush petal” blush
MAC mineralised skin finish in “lightscapade

EYES
Naked basics palette- ”venus” on inner corners and browbone
– ”walk of shame” on lid
– ”naked 2” and ”faint” in crease and underneath my bottom lashline
Maybelline chromatics khol eyeliner in “turquoise vibe”
Maybelline the rocket mascara
Benefit Brow zings

LIPS
Bourjois rouge edition velvet lipgloss, stick, thing in “01 personne ne rouge!”

I just wanna say that the bourjois lip thing is amazing. I hardly wear it because it is so red but it feels amazing on the lips and the colour pay off is unreal. It also dries matt which is lovely!

I hope you enjoyed this little post and before I go, I am going to do a giveaway at 200 followers which I am planning well in advance so that I can buy things little by little (cause obviously I want to be able to send you loads of stuff!) and I was wondering what you guys would like to win? I have a couple ideas in mind but its obviously going to go to one of you so what would you want? It needs to be something that can be sent worldwide cause obviously I don’t want to miss anyone out!

So that’s all for today- Good bye for now little buns!

Quick & easy Christmas Make up look 2014!

I said I’d get this post up today and I have. WOOHOO GO ME! Better late than never, eh? So anyway, make up. I know I said I’d have two looks but I wasn’t very happy with the second one so I’ll just skim over that bit quickly…

DSC_0153

For my base I started with my Nivea moisturiser just to shake things up a bit and then slapped on my new MAC BB cream with my fingers because I really wanted to test it. Then I used my usual collection concealer to conceal (duh) and highlight and then used a darker concealer from my no name concealer palette to contour.

After all that faffing I moved onto my powder make up things… I used my sleek blush in “flushed”, my bourjois chocolate bronzer and my MAC mineralised skin finish in “lightscapade” to finish off my face make up, I didn’t wear a face powder because my skin always gets really dry in the winter so I don’t really need one.

Moving onto eyes…

DSC_0128

I started by using my nars smudgeproof eye shadow primer and then packed on my two L’oreal gold single eye shadows, not forgetting to put some on my inner corner too. I then used “darkhorse from my mini Urban Decay palette and blended that in my outer corners, crease and underneath my bottom lash line along with the gold colours. Next I created a cute lil wing with my maybelline black gel liner. Then I used my Maybelline great lash and my clinique bottom lash mascara to top it all off. Simples!

I then did my usual eyebrow routine with my Benefit Brow Zings and Maybelline Brow Drama and popped on The Body Shop “crazy sexy crimson” lipstick and et voila! I also tried this look out with my MAC “sultana” patent polish lip pencil and my Max Factor “mulberry” lipstick and I love how that came out too.

DSC_0132

I’m so sorry about the bags under my eyes by the way, my job has taken away every ounce of energy I had.

And just for the lols here is the other make up look that turned out to be a w f u l but hey, I tried. The eye shadow doesn’t look red at all and my lipstick is far too brown for my liking. I wasn’t quite sure how I could salvage the eye shadow, I think I got a little bit too excited.

DSC_0163

And since this posted ended up being shorter than I imagined, here is some stuff I just bought- YAY!

DSC_0165

I will be testing out the Real Techniques “beauty blender” style sponge and using the maybelline The Rocket mascara and collection Glam eyes glitter liner in my New Years Eve look. I’m no longer off on New Years Eve though so that post will probably be up on the Sunday after Christmas. I plan to post on Christmas day but if something gets in the way (aka I nap longer than usual) I hope you all have an amazing Christmas and stay safe! Oooh whilst I’m here, I also applied for X Factor…GOODBYE FOR NOW LITTLE BUNS! ❤

How to make an effort without making an effort

Okay so, I don’t know about you (BUT I’M FEELING TWENTY TWOOO) but some days I really don’t want to do anything apart from sleep and eat…okay most days. However sometimes we have to look presentable and unfortunately leave our beds and ice cream behind. So, to make an effort without making an effort I like to do this quick and easy “no make up” make up look! We first want to moisturise our skin because you never know if someone will stroke it. Well, that’s not the real reason but you would be surprised how many people randomly stoke my face. I used both Nivea’s “Rich moisturising day cream” for dry and sensitive skin and Simple’s “illuminating radiance cream”. Then I used Collection’s “lasting perfection” concealer in “1- fair” to cover any bad boy blemishes and my crazy red nose and under eye circles. Then I used MUA’s face powder in shade “3” to give me some colour and a slight bit of coverage. Following that I curled my lashes and applied Benefit’s “they’re real!” mascara. For my brows I used Rimmel’s “professional eyebrow pencil” in “001- dark brown” veeeery carefully because this can go pear shaped far too easily. I just used the brush on the lid to comb them through and then applied Carmex’s “moisture plus” lip balm. Et voila!! Super quick, super affordable, and super simple! I hoped this helped by fellow lazy friends, good bye for now little buns!
