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.

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.

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.

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!

MOTD: Shopping!

Once again, I didn’t get a post up when I said I would, but let’s be honest, when does that ever happen? I was planning on a nail tutorial as my second post on Thursday but it all went t*ts up so here I am on Sunday instead. Hi. I bought that white T-shirt today and it makes me feel like a bad*ss.

I got my first ever pay check so shopping was 100% necessary, but because I have posted haul after haul, I won’t do another one because quite frankly, it gets a bit boring. And I will probably have more interesting hauls in the near future. So instead, why don’t we have a look at my makeup from today?

DSC_0091

I tried to make my eyes look A) Not hooded and B) Not puffy as I was out on the lash last night but it didn’t exactly work… oh well. I look very surprised at something on the floor, God knows what. I also never realised how weirdly shaped my nose is…

DSC_0096

For my base I used The Body Shop foundation in shade 2 with the obvious choice of the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in “01- fair” under my eyes (and blended outwards towards my ears), down the bridge of my nose, in between my eyebrows, on my cupids bow and finally, on my chinny chin. Then I set this with the Rimmel Clear Complexion translucent powder. I also sprayed my face with a tiny bit of water before moving on because Wayne Goss (the absolute babe) said to use rose water to make your makeup look less cakey but I don’t have that and water is working perfectly fine for me!

DSC_0097

Then I used Benefits high beam on my cheekbones and cupids bow and the dandelion blush on my cheeks (duhh).

DSC_0098

I followed that up with my favourite bronzer- Bourjois Delice de Poudre in shade number 51. I put this in the hollows of my cheeks to make me look thinner, on the top of my forehead to make it look smaller, under my bottom lip to make it look more plump, down the sides of my nose to make it appear more narrow and finally under my jawline to make it look like I don’t in fact have a double chin. I really do love my bronzer.

DSC_0099

As per usual I started off my eyes with my nars smudge proof eyeshadow base. If you have particularly oily eyelids and/or hooded eyes like myself, this is an absolute life saver. I then used the light brown colour from this mini Urban Decay palette on the inner corner of my eyes and blended out as a sort of ‘wash’ of colour. Then I put the darkest colour on the outer corners, in the crease I wish I had and underneath my eyes. I also put a teeny tiny bit of the light champagney colour in my inner corners. I then lined my waterline with my trusty George white eye liner and my top lash line with my BarryM Blink waterproof eye liner. I finished my eyes off with the Benefit They’re Real mascara et voila!

DSC_0100

Chloe is the name, brows are the game. I firstly use Benefits brow zings in “medium” and then blend a bit of that dark brown colour from a little ‘palette’ I’ve had for a billion years because my hair is so super dark now. I then top it off with the Maybelline brow drama in “medium brown” which I have grown to love.

DSC_0101

For my lips I just slapped on this Nivea cherry lip balm and a Revlon lip butter in “berry smoothie”.

DSC_0102

I am the best at back grounds, aren’t I…? Let’s just ignore my room. And the reflection on my glasses. I have finished the post but I don’t think I’m quite ready to stop talking to you guys so I’ll tell you a little bit about last night.

I went to a friends 18th who I went to school with but haven’t spoken to them in like a year and it was so nice to catch up! I knew half the people there from my old school and then made friends with his college friends and it was so lovely because everyone go along so well! We also did shots with his Mum, it was great. At one point I got my hands on the remote for the music, so as soon as everyone started screaming the songs at the top of their voices, I would pause it, and as soon as they pressed play, I would pause it again. I am so evil but my word it was funny. I made friends when people realised I was doing it so I guess everyone has a little evil streak in them. That’s all I can properly remember of the night, apart from somehow destroying my jeans, I think I might have tried to do the splits. But yeah, that’s it for today, goodbye for now little buns!

Empties!

Okay so before I even started my blog I had a little space in my drawer for products that I have used up, I suppose that I thought I would have the balls to start a youtube channel by now but it appears not. I have just been piling these things up so I thought I would show you what I have used and give you a cheeky little review of each product. 

DSC_0091

I’ll start with the first product I used up, the Revlon Colorstay concealer, in, no surprise, “01-fair”. I would say that it is a light-medium coverage, especially for dark circles. The smell isn’t all that noticeable and it doesn’t crease that much under my eyes. I would be tempted to repurchase this but I would use it more to cover up redness like the scar on my nose. From what I can remember it was around £8 which is reasonable but I would like a better coverage.

DSC_0092

Next is another concealer. As you can see this is well loved and has almost no label left on the product. I feel like everyone and their dog has used this product, and in case you hadn’t guessed, it is the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in, you guessed it, “1-fair”. This is also not full coverage however it covers enough for me to be happy with, I haven’t found any concealer that can fully cover my dark under eyes so for the time being this will do me. It does smell a little funky but to be honest I haven’t noticed a smell until I just took a sniff. For just under £4 you can’t really complain. I am on my third tube of this so I probably would, and will, repurchase this.

DSC_0090

I have a special place in my heart for lip balm and with my love of Palmer’s cocoa butter I was super happy when I got this a while back. However I wasn’t overly impressed. It does smell amazing but its fairly thin and slippy, like those sweet scented ones that you can get in a pack of 4 for £1, you know? I also bought this when my lips were really quite chapped and there was no difference in my lips at all after using the whole thing. It does have SPF 15 which I was happy about when I was in and out of the sun and didn’t burn my lips, which I have done before and it is not fun. It was only £2 so I would be tempted to try it again but maybe the lip butter rather than the lip balms because I can imagine that to be thicker.

DSC_0093

I can’t get enough of this stuff. As you can see this is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. It lasted me about 3-4 months which I thought was great as I was using it every night and most mornings. There is no fragrance whatsoever and it doesn’t sting my face at all which I was chuffed with. I have had no trouble getting every last bit of make up off with this magical water. I have repurchased this already and I will probably continue to do so, especially at around £4 a bottle. 

DSC_0094

 There is no way I have normal skin but this cream is blue and I was like WOAH BLUE CREAM and bought it. It claims to provide “long lasting moisture” and for your skin to “appear more radiant and youthful”. Being a ‘youth’ I didn’t really notice a difference in that respect but my skin was definitely more hydrated and this soaks into your skin so quick which was great when I had to be out the house by 7:45am. I can’t remember how much this was but it was from Aldi so as you can probably imagine it was super cheap.

DSC_0096

This is a weird one but I do use deodorant so why not stick it in here. Its also from the same brand as the moisturiser and I wanted to keep the theme going. I remember picking this up when I had no money and, of course, no deodorant. Normally my under arms can be quite sensitive and I was surprised that this didn’t actually sting, even after shaving! It also didn’t choke me which my current Garnier one is doing at the moment. I definitely would repurchase this and again, as it’s from Aldi, it’s super cheap.

DSC_0095

So, I also don’t have oily skin but my skin goes crazy when I am stressed (all the time) and before that time of the month and I get a little scared when using an oil based moisturiser when my skin is having a little tantrum. This kept my skin moisturised without giving me extra spots or worsening the ones I had, win! I do have the “dry and sensitive skin” version of this and I like them both. The only problem is that I can’t use either of them if my face is having an extra sensitive day because both of them sting. They are around the £3 mark, give or take, so I would consider repurchasing them but they aren’t top of my list.

DSC_0097

Last but not least, my little stash of Simple products. In my time I have had many simple products, the three above which are the “eye make-up remover”, the “soothing facial toner” and the “hydrating light moisturiser”. I have also had the “foamy facial cleanser” (I think that’s what it’s called) and my current favourite “illuminating radiance cream”. I do love all of the Simple products as they aren’t pricey so are good for those on a budget, *cough cough* me, and they have never irritated my skin. Personally I am not a fan of the cleansers and will stick to my magic water and my soap&glory “peaches and clean” but I adore the other products. I have repurchased the toner 3 times, the moisturiser twice (I do need another though) and the eye make up remover twice. I have a feeling I will always go back to some Simple products, no matter what else I find. And no this isn’t sponsored in any way, shape, or form, I just really like Simple.

So that’s it for today folks! I am planning two Autumn/Winter make up looks for you guys so be on the look out for them! Hope you have a great day, goodbye for now little buns!

Club Tropicana!

(drinks are freeee) Hey guys! I know I lied when I said in my last post that this would be up tomorrow, but it’s me, what did you expect? 😉 Today I have a “Club Tropicana” look for you which you can make wearable or just laugh at me because I had to answer the door three times with blue and purple eyebrows, your choice, really.

DSC_0241

After prepping my skin and whatnot I started by applying Benefits POREfessional primer…which isn’t in this picture. Oops. Then I mixed a small amount of the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in “010- Light Porcelain” with the L’Oreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint foundation (which is basically water, its cool) in “100- Porcelain” because, believe it or not, I actually tried to tan a bit… It’s not very noticeable. I applied this using a fake beauty blender which is really bad and I should just get the real one, when I have money that is! I then followed that up with Collections Lasting Perfection concealer in “1- Fair” under my eyes with my ring finger.

DSC_0243

For the powdery things on my face I used Bourjois Delice De Poudre bronzer in number “51”, I’m not even going to try and guess what the actual name of the shade is. I applied this with my Real Techniques blush brush in the hollows of my cheeks, on my temples, under my jaw, down the sides of my nose and just under my bottom lip, I dont really know why I do this, it just seems like a good idea. Following that I applied Sleeks blush in “Life’s a Peach” so that I don’t look dead. Then I used some of benefits “High Beam” across my cheekbones, down my nose, on my cupids bow and on my chin.

Moving on to eyes, I applied my Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base and then George’s Satin Soft Khol Pencil in “02- White” all over my lids, on my brow bones, in my inner corners, on my water line and underneath my eyes, blending it in with my finger. To set it and make eyeshadows easier to blend I just used a matt white from the palette I will get onto in a minute buuuut once again I forgot to photograph it, nice one Chloe. Oh by the way, the white makes the colours look brighter, I don’t think I mentioned that.

DSC_0245

To start I used this matt brown colour from the MUA “Heaven and Earth” palette (if you don’t have an MUA palette I would highly recommend getting one, they are £4 for 12 very pigmented eyeshadows, yay!) and blended it above my crease and underneath the white that I had placed under my eyes.

DSC_0246

Then I used this yellow colour from my no name palette (that I have oh so conveniently pointed out there), that I can no longer find anywhere BUT looks remarkably similar to this palette- http://www.bhcosmetics.com/products/120-color-eyeshadow-palette-1st-edition, and placed it in my inner corners and on the first third of my eyes.

DSC_0250

Then I used this neon(ish) pink colour on the middle portion of my eyes and packed that on quite heavily. I didn’t blend it at this point because Im all for the easy life.

DSC_0253

Then I used this really cute blue in the outer corners of my eyes aaaand yeah that’s all I did with that.

DSC_0252

Then I blended the yellow and pink together with this bright orange colour and chose a purple, aka the one you will see in a minute, to blend the pink and blue together. For underneath my eyes I just repeated this process.

DSC_0255

I used this blue and purple for my eyebrows because I thought I was being super swanky, and I really like that blue. And yes, that’s the purple I was talking about like 2 seconds ago. Okay, maybe not two seconds, I can’t type THAT fast. “THAT”…okay wait I can type “THAT” pretty fast. You can stop reading if you are done with my jokes, I don’t blame you.

DSC_0256

Okay so then I put this super bright green in my pretend crease because I have hooded eyes (sob). Oh and by the way, this whole time I used the same regular eyeshadow brush and just wet it and wiped it every time, I find brighter colours work better with a damp brush. See, if you would have left before, you wouldn’t know that now, would you?

DSC_0257

We’re nearly done, I promise. I lined my eyes very thinly with Maybellines Lasting Drama gel eyeliner in “01- Black” using an angled brush that I got free with a W7 “brow kit” that I bought and gave away ages ago, but the brush is really handy.

DSC_0258

Next I curled my lashes with these 99p curlers (I’m a big spender, I know) and applied the Miss Sporty Studio Lash mascara in “1- black” and over top Avons Super Shock mascara in “black”. For my bottom lashes I used this Opia Lash Lengthening mascara in “Green” because I thought I wasn’t quite colourful enough.

DSC_0259

Last, but most definitely not least, lips. I already had on some Nivea lip butter (the caramel cream one, so good, so very good) so then I used the Revlon lip butter in “Sweet Tart” and then for some unknown reason went over that with Rimmels Colour Rush ‘long lasting intense colour balm’ (not quite sure what I was meant to call that, there’s a lot of writing on it) in “110- Make Me Blush”. Cute name.

AND WE ARE DONE. WE FINISHED. WE MADE IT THROUGH THIS TOGETHER. This took me longer to write than to actually do the makeup, I get far too sidetracked. And I also write like I speak; cramming far too much into one sentence. So, that’s all for now! If you have any suggestions or anything just leave a comment aaaaand yeah- goodbye for now little buns!
