Bold Brow Routine

Brow can make you or break you.
You need to find what shape, colour and style that compliments you best and once you've got that down your good to go.

I'm going to talk through my bold strong brow routine which i tend to do on nights out whereas during the day my brows are much lighter and more natural.


My routine isn't special but i finally found a way that works for me and gets me a result that i like every time. 

Maintaining my brows is defiantly the hardest. I pluck my brows myself and shape them. I like doing my own as i have complete control and only have myself to blame if i mess them up.
I trim the front of my brows only, brushing the hairs up and carefully cutting any that are too long. This gives a much tidier appearance all together and a better shape.

First i brush all my hairs up with a spoolie brush and follow the hair growth. Then i draw a light line under the brow so i get a guideline of the shape and i work my way up from there. 

Second i use light hair like strokes to fill in working my way bottom to top and get heavier at the tail and where i need more colour. I have quite shaped brows so i usually follow them and arch them more. At this point i have a pretty strong brow and i will usually leave it here, but if I'm going all out ill carve it out more and highlight the brow bone.

I use a yellow tone concealer or a concealer lighter than my skin tone and sharpen up the original line i made at the beginning and perfecting the shape i want. Then take the remaining concealer on the outer tail on top to sharpen them just a tad more and cleaning up any mistakes i may of made.
Lastly i blend out all the concealer carefully and i get a strong bold brow with a highlighted brow bone and then ill continue with the rest of eye makeup.





 My holy grail products are the famous Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Brunette which is true brown with warm under tones. It works for me as my hair is warm but i will probably opt for the soft or ash brown in future. A recent discovery for me is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel and i can't live without it now. Its glues your brows in place all day without feeling heavy or crispy. Both of these products are defiantly worth the investment.

Lush Haul


Its a Lush Haul but not just any Lush haul, its a Oxford Street Lush Haul with loads of exclusives products

Twilight Bath Bomb: I can't have a Lush haul without my favourite bath bomb, twilight is the sweetest smelling, colourful bomb there is.

Sunnyside Bubble Bar: Sometimes i want to be covered in gold glitter and bubbles and smell really fruity and fresh and this is defiantly the bubble bar for that.
Karma Bubble Bar: (Exclusive) This is a fruity fresh smell that i can't put my finger on and will fill your bath with purple bubbly good karma.
Sex Bomb: This is a floral pretty smell and i find it really relaxing. Especially when you find a little rose in the bottom of your tub. It really is the cupid of the baths.
Cyanide Pill: (Exclusive) This is a laid back scent, it smells woody and earthy but amazing and i think this will be really beautiful to watch fizz away.
Shimmy Shimmy: (Exclusive) I've never tried the massage bars but after getting an amazing arm massage using this i had to buy it, its defiantly one when you want to be glowing all night. Think Edward Cullen in sunlight.
Furze: (Exclusive) I knew i had to pick up some bath oils and not only was these the coolest looking, it claims to smell of England and the gorse bushes but i pick up coconut scents with this oil as well.
Dragons Egg Bath Bomb: Ending it on a fruity note with this bomb, it's perfect for the summer with the lemony fruity scent and popping candy!

I seriously recommend you visiting the Lush next time your in London! It's 3 floors of heaven and honestly not overwhelming!
The exclusives was all beautiful although i've got to admit i wasn't overly pleased with the scents otherwise i would of picked up more because they all looked amazing.

Get The Most Out Of Pigments

Recently I've been dipping my toe into the pigment side of the pool.
I've been constantly testing out whats the best base for my pigments and getting the hang of them.

[L to R, No base Light Layer, No base Heavy Layer Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and on Bronze, Mac Fix +]

The pigment I'm using is MAC Copper which is my obsession for the evening time.

Light Layer: Pigments are intense so when wearing them during the day you may want to tone it down i found that applying a thin layer is really pretty and not too in your face.

Heavy Layer: This one is with no base, its still intense but it looks more like a pressed pigment so adding that base really makes it pop. I found it lasts much longer with a creamy base under! 

Cream Shadow Base: I used the Color Tattoo in On and on Bronze and found that it made the pigment more shimmery than all the others i tested.

MAC Fix +: If your after a foiled intense lid colour than wet your brush with Fix + and you'll get it.

My favourite method to apply it is with a flat shader brush and applying a creamy base. Pigments are so stunning as a all over lid colour and really creates a dramatic eye!

Zoeva Rose Gold Eye Brushes


Being a fan of all things rose golden and all things brushes when i saw this eye set i knew that they would be coming home with me.

Zoeva are an amazing company and so affordable for the quality. My favourite out the bunch is the 228 crease brush, its highly comparable to the famous MAC 217 but with the rose gold detail and under half the price i think the 228 takes the cake!

These brushes are all over the internet so i know you've seen countless blog posts but i couldn't help but mention them! This set is perfect for starting out or just expanding your eye brush kit. They have every brush you'll ever need. The density is perfect and they haven't shredded during multiple washes.
I'm blown away with the Zoeva brushes and now i can't wait to get my hands on more, i have my eye on the Rose Golden 2 Face Brushes especially that beautiful contour brush in there!

How I Juggle Work, College and Blogging


I opted for a bit of a different post but something i wanted to talk about on my blog.
Like pretty much everyone my plate is full. What with the final month of college, making enough money for living and fitting it around a blog schedule which i want to make the best of my abilities it gets stressful.

Let me fill you in a little bit, I'm in my final weeks of Fashion Promotion course. I'm working 4/5 days at Miss Selfridge and I'm blogging once a week which I'm hoping to increase to 2.

Tips

Prioritise: What's most important to you?
Don't spread yourself thin: Miss a week of blogging, say no to that extra shift. You come first!
Organise: Write down your rota, plan out your days, make to-do lists.
Weekly Planners: Set your days. I don't like to do a post in a day, i like to take a photo on a Monday, edit it on a Tuesday, write it on a Wednesday, i find it more fun and less last minute and stressful.
Everyone needs a day off: Even you! Allow a pamper day with Netflix and a face mask. It'll do wonders to your stress levels.
Socialise: When I'm busy i often forget about socialising and i feel so much better when i have a little chat with one my friends.
Have fun: If you don't like it, don't do it. Obvious one really but do things for you not because someone asked you to.
Don't forget to sleep: Being busy you have late nights but please try and fit at least 6 hours sleep in and don't substitute it with caffeine!



I hope you bare these tips in mind. They help me to balance things out and keep my stress to a minimum. You can't be in 10 places at once and you need to remember that.

Any other helpful tips?

May Favourites




Monthly favourites are always my favourite to write and read.
And can i just say what everyone is thinking, how the hell is it June tomorrow?!

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day: I'm not big on hair care at all and I'm so lazy so when i saw a 5 in 1 product i had to give it a try and now i can't not use it, it literally is perfect hair in a bottle. It gives me volume and really smooths my frizz!

Urban Decay Naked Basics: This is my most used palette, i find it hard to create a eye look without using at least one shade. They are such wearable colours and all matte besides a beautiful highlight shade. Couldn't live without it.

Mac Ripe Peach Blush: I'm being a tease putting a limited edition product in my favourites but its been on my cheeks for the last two months, its lovely on fair and light skin and a really natural blush.

Nyx Liquid Liner: I'm being adventurous branching out from my eyeliner pens and although applying this takes more time, it gives a sharp flick, i just wish this was completely matte.

Rimmel Sandal Eyes Nude Liner: Another must have. It really brightens and opens up your eyes and make you look awake and i need that in my life.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum: Lately I've just not been feeling the full coverage foundations so i decided this was a good option, its super light and moisturising with a decent amount of coverage and would be perfect for the hot months ahead!

Too Faced Hangover Primer: I love a moisturising primer for when i want to use a more drying foundation such as Studio Fix and this is perfect to refresh my skin and lays under makeup well and prevents foundation clinging to dry patches.

Pretty Little Liars: I know I'm so late on the band wagon but oh my gosh, its amazing, I've binge watched the first 4 series and although at times I'm like come on girls get it over with find out who A is, i still find it gripping and i'd be lying if i haven't dreamt about it several times

I could of wrote a book on how many favourites i had since i haven't done a favourites since January!

5 Must Have Brushes

[L to R] Morphe M431, Zoeva 228, Real Techniques Contour Brush, Body Shop Blush Brush, Flat Top Kabuki


I am so surprised that i've never done a post just on brushes baring in mind how in love i am with them. So i thought i'd share my 5 must have can't live without brushes.

Morphe M431: This is a slighter larger pencil brush than usual and i find that it is perfect for specific crease work and putting colour under the eye. Ever since i picked one of these up, i can't put it down.

Zoeva 228: A dupe for the MAC 217 what isn't to love. Perfect for crease work and blending and light application. I could own 20 of these brushes and i still wouldn't have enough and especially in rose gold.

Real Techiques Contour Brush: A multi purpose brush, perfect for contour, highlight, blend out concealer and setting the under eye. This brush does it all.

Body Shop Blush Brush: I put this old gem in because i love the cut of the bristles and so soft. I also think this brush could be multi purpose but I'm yet to try, so ill get back to you on that.

Flat Top Kabuki: Any brand of this brush will work, the one in the image above being Coastal Scents. I wont be able to use anything but this and a beauty blender to apply foundation, it works a charm.

Sorry for not posting in the last two weeks! I've been so run down with my college deadline and to top it off i was ill and then my internet completely died on me for 5 days.

Contour Favourites


With Summer round the corner you want to have those chiseled cheekbones nailed.
So i thought i'd share with you some of my contour essentials.

First a very well known contour palette, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in Light/ Medium. Mostly known for the Banana powder, which I'm going to put out here, if you're fair doesn't highlight very much. Fawn is the powder i get most use out of as it's a grey toned shade which is perfect for contouring!

I thought i'd include a couple of cream products such as the Soleil Tan De Chanel. This is a warm shade which is perfect for the summer that makes a natural looking contour and can even be applied all over the face for a overall bronzed look and i've barely made a dent in it.

The next cream product is Benefits Watts Up. A champagne highlight that really gives a beautiful shimmer to the cheekbones without being too much perfect for day or night.

Benefit Hoola was my first contour product and is still a favourite, it is a shade that will suit any skin tone. It has the perfect mixture that isn't too grey nor too warm.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quarts is a intense pink highlight that really makes your cheeks pop. The shades can also be used eyeshadows as well. All the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks are beautiful and find the one that suits you best and it'll be your go-to highlight for evenings for sure.

The brushes i use are Real Techniques Contour Brush which is perfect for getting a strong contour. The Real Techniques setting brush is perfect for highlighting.

Drugstore Haul



3 for 2 sales. Need i say more?

L'oreal Miss Manga Mascara: I love a voluming mascara for evening and decided to give this a whack, i haven't tried it yet but I'm sure it'll pop up in a favourites if i do!

Rimmel Extra 3D Lash Mascara: I heard Lily Pebbles mention this and i had to try, lengthening mascaras are defiantly a must for me. I found this has quickly become my favourite bottom lash mascara as well!

L'oreal Infallible 24 Hour Foundation: I wanted to be different and try this one out. Big mistake, it separates so bad on my skin and honestly, i hate everything about it and i will be trying the matte version.

Essence Lip Liner 05: After Casey Holmes mentioned a Kat Von D Lolita dupe with this liner i had to get my hands on it, paired with Nyx Matte Lip Cream in London. It's so creamy and i love it.

Essence Lip Liner 08: I just needed a basic red liner and this does the job and for £1 as well. Whats not to love?

Sleek Blush By 3 Pink Lemonade: I'm on a bit of a blush hype at the moment. These blushes are beautiful and pigmented and if they had a coral blush by 3, i'll be even more in love.

Collection Eyes Uncovered Nude Grey: I'm trying to get more into cool tones and i thought this palette was a little push. Amazing quality for the price, only downside wish they had a couple of mattes in there.


So thats what I've picked up lately from the drugstore and i must say i'm really loving Boots and Superdrug at the moment.
I have a high end haul coming up for you that includes a couple of things from Sephora so stay tuned for that!

What else should i try from the drugstore?

5 Things I'd Tell My Younger Self


Firstly i'd like to apologise for the awful picture quality and the fact i still wear my hair like that.



As i was going through my photos trying to select some for this post i went through more than 5 tips i'd give myself. First starting with those 3D glasses with the lens popped out.



1: Be yourself: Yes, you've heard it all before and i know my younger self would be eye rolling. Its scary being a young girl and it was important to being liked but real friends will love you for you.

2: Go school: I hated school, it wasn't that i was bullied or anything bad, i just didn't like it, i find it very hard to concentrate and when i didn't know one little thing i would shut off. But looking back on it i wish i did try harder.

3: Make the most out everything: I always took my family for granted.No-one close to me has physically died thankfully, but people get sick and i regret not spending more time with them.

4: Tumblr was not your friend: Ok hipster, looking back on it i never realised how bad tumblr was, its okay now but it was full of drugs, sex, alcohol and self harming. It was a dark place for young kids to be and worst of all, i wanted to be like them.

5: Boys aren't worth it: I wish i knew this sooner. The amount of tears i wasted. And honestly looking back on old photos, i don't think it was very healthy to stalk boys social media daily (Im talking celebrities and 'twitter famous')


What tips would you give?

Make up Geek Shadows

I recently purchased some make up geek shadows.
With the hype around these, i couldn't resist.

[L to R] Shimma Shimma, Beaches and Cream, Creme Brûlée, Coco Bear, Grandstand, Moondust, Corrupt

I'm seriously impressed with the quality of these, especially for $6, they are extremely buttery.

I swatched the shadows so you can see how pigmented they are in just one swipe. The picture doesn't do the shimmers justice, especially Grandstand which is part of their beautiful foiled collection.

[L to R] Shimma Shimma, Beaches and Cream, Creme Brûlée, Coco Bear, Grandstand, Moondust, Corrupt


Shimma Shimma: This is probably my favourite shade, it looks beautiful all over the lid and really opens up your eyes.
Beaches and Cream: This shadow is a bit too light for my liking, it makes a good transition shade on fair skin, but wouldn't recommend it anyone past light skin.
Creme Brûlée: This is another transition shade which would be ideal for anyone, it makes applying any colours beautiful and blend like a dream.
Coco Bear: I love this shade for warming up the eye and popping in the crease to deepen a look. Its really a must have in your collection.
Grandstand: My first foiled shadow and i am blown away with one light touch it packs some much colour with no fall out what so ever, you will not need your Fix+ for this beauty.
Moondust: Interrupting the warm theme i had going on, this is beautiful for a grey smokey eye and looks lovely all over the lid.
Corrupt: The most pigmented blackest black around. Do not doubt this shadow, a dip of a brush and you're set. Also blends beautifully for a black.



I created this eye by popping Beaches and Cream as a transition shade, then adding Creme Brûlée for more depth and blended it up to my brow bone, the last shade i used in my crease was Coco Bear and focused this more in the crease and slightly on the outer corner. I placed Shimma Shimma all over my lid as this shadow is life and for my bottom lash line i put Coco Bear for a bit of depth. 
I gave liner a miss this day as i wanted to keep the eyes quite soft. I used my Rimmel Lash Accelerator for lengthy looking lashes.

Spring Lips


With Spring round the corner i thought i'd share which lipsticks are going to be my go-to shades for Spring and probably Summer.
I'm sad i have to put my dark colours away for a few months, but i've been looking forward to playing with some orange and brighter colours and going to try to get away from my comfort of nudes.




[left to right] MAC Pure Zen, MAC Kinda Sexy, KIKO 02, Rimmel 110

These are four lipsticks I'm going to get a lot of use out of during the warmer months.

Mac Pure Zen is a must have in your collection, its a sheer pinky peach shade and i wear this all year round, it's a lipstick you can put on top of any colour if you want a bit of shine, and i find that when i do this it makes my lips look just that bit more bigger.

Mac Kinda Sexy is a beautiful matte pinky peach, its a really wearable colour and you can probably tell that I'm really digging peach nudes at the moment, they just bring a little Spring twist to the table.

Kiko 02 is a cool toned pink, and i'm really not a bold pink type of girl. But with this pink, its in the middle of a bold and a natural, so to me it seems wearable, it still makes a statement but unlike a fuchsia it doesn't take all the attention.

Rimmel 110 is a beautiful red with some orange undertones, it looks very red in the swatch, but if you look in store you will see it pulls orange, i think this is very similar to MAC lady danger but this is half the price.


I quickly swatched the lipsticks for you without any liner because i wanted to get the true colour across, I'm a bit disappointed that the Rimmel 110 didn't come out very well, so bare in mind its more orange.

What are your Spring shades?

Everyday Makeup


My current every day makeup, i will be changing it up when we come more into Spring but for the last month or so I've been loving these products and think its a light introduction into the warmer weather.

Rimmel Lashing Finish 25 hour Foundation: It took me a while to warm up to this foundation but i am loving it, its full coverage but the comfort serum really does it for me. Even Ivory is a tad too dark for me. Shameful i know.

MUA Undress Your Skin: I brought this and never really gave it a chance but i think this is perfect for a everyday highlight because sometimes a shimmer brick is just a bit too much for early morning hours.

Rimmel Stay Matte in Transparent: Of course this would be in my everyday makeup, its cheap and cheerful and sets my makeup in place.

S&G Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist: I'm lazy i can't deal with the liner, lipstick and gloss. I just pop some of this on and it gives a really nice shine with a nice darker nude colour and makes your lips look big. Bonus.

Nars Laguna Bronzer: This bronzer is great for warming up the face and as its coming into Spring, i thought this would make a appearance again.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Creamy Beige: A really nice everyday colour, i think this would compliment a lot of people and so quick to apply, no brushes needed.

Bourjois Blush in Rose Ambre: As we are coming into Spring i thought a nice pink blush would be suitable and look at the cute packaging.

Urban Decay Perversion: My HG mascara, although i consider this a night time mascara i find it quick to put on and I'm happy with the results from one layer for day time.

Anastasia Brow Wiz in Dark Brown: Another HG product, i cannot live without this. During the day i use this with a light hand to get a more natural brow.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly: This concealer is suitable for under the eyes and blemishes, although its not very yellow i still like to pop this under the eyes just for a little lift.

Empties #1


Over the past few months of blogging, I've been meaning to do a empties, then i realised I'm so awful at empties because i throw everything away, but after 6 months, I've done it and a very small pathetic one of that.


Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (sample sized):
 I brought the Cleanse and Polish and got this little sample. I love this, i wish it hadn't took me so long to give in. I don't find it drying and my skin hasn't reacted badly to it.

Clinque Liquid Facial Soap Oily (sample sized):
 I always got the Clinque 3 step, and i did love it, but I'm so glad I've finished because now i can dive into more cleansers, i also used the moisturiser which was my favourite but i kind of cut it up to get the most out of it. I think the 3 step is really great if your new to skincare.

Lee Stafford Treatment For Hair That Never Grows Past A Certain Length: 
I loved this, the smell was like a lush bomb, but having a few weeks away from it, I've realised it didn't really do much to my hair, although i might buy another one for pampering nights.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water: 
I go through this like water. I love this for my eye makeup and i usually take this across my face to get most of my face makeup off then use my Cleanse and Polish.

Duac:
 This is over night treatment i got for my blemish marks, and it helped a lot, i would defiantly recommend going to your doctors to get this, the only downside is that you can't use a moisturiser with this.

Rimmel Stay Matte in Ivory: 
This is a old foundation (can you tell?) but i found this and it was my holy grail foundation a year back, when looking at pictures, i remember this being cakey and drying.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge:
I wont go into detail with this, you know the drill, i love using this damp for my concealer, but recently I've been using it for foundation and i just love it guys, i really do.

Collection Concealer in Light:
Again, you know the drill. No matter what concealer i use, this one always ends up back in my hand, its amazing at working its magic on concealing blemishes, and can go under the eyes as long as you set it with a powder.

Soap and Glory Archery in Brownie Points:
I feel bad because brow wiz overtook this little one, i still have a brand new one that is just waiting for my brow wiz to run out. I love the felt tip and the crayon, i also want to get my hands on the new brow crayon with a spooly.

The Disney Tag

Tag time!
I love a good tag, and a Disney one, bonus!



A scene in any Disney movie you wish you could experience?
This was a hard tie between flying with peter or flying on a magic carpet, i would probably have to say flying with Alladin on a magic carpet while singing 'A Whole New World'


An unforgettable experience moment you've had at the Park?
I went to Disney Land Paris, and the most unforgettable moment was seeing the castle up close, i can just remember thinking how much smaller it looks on tv, although it was a bit disappointing when its just stops inside..

What Non-Disney song(s) that reminds you or brings back memories of Disney and or the Parks?
I don't know why, but the song 'Popular' from Wicked comes to mind, if the princesses was a little bit more sassy, i feel like this could be Disney.

When was the first time you went to a Disney Park?
I was 10 or 11 when i first went with my family, but i went again when i was 14 for the best school trip ever.

If you could choose any of the characters to be your best friend who would you choose?
I thought so long on this question and it would be Alice. I feel like she gets left out since she's not a princess and rumour may have it she liked a magic mushroom or two, but hey ho.

Who are you favourite Disney Princesses?
Ariel, Rapunzel (Tangled) and Anna.
Honestly i never really loved the princesses too much because i was usually jealous.

Name a scene/moment in any Disney movie that never fails to make your cry?
Dumbo! When the mother has a broken heart and gets locked up and she cradles Dumbo and 'Baby Mine' plays, I'm not ashamed to say i watched it the other day and cried like a sucker.

Whats the first Disney movie you remember seeing?
The Jungle Book!

What is your favourite Disney Movie?
Peter Pan, not sure why, but I've always fancied him, the original, the remake with Jeremy Sumpter like yaaaas and at the theatre. Just something about him.

I tag everyone!
Come on people its Disney!

Hope you enjoyed this tag

Skin Confidence





I have combined sensitive skin with blemishes and oil only focusing around my chin. 
Also extremely dry and sensitive eyes.

I'm still not 100% confident with my skin, but here are some little tips that helped me improve on it.

Find a skin routine that works for you: I know trying out products can be scary, especially if you have such troubled skin like me. I only got a skincare routine last year which i regret so bad. Because not only does it improve your skin, i get a bit of reassurance and confidence from it.

Stop caring so much: Easier said than done. Realise that people aren't looking at your skin, i know when you have a spot and you are stressing out, that odds are people wont even look at it.

Boys don't care either: Girl, don't get me wrong, i know the horror of staying round a boys and completely freaking out, topping up your concealer every hour. Boys don't give it a second thought. They know you aren't perfect. Boys actually prefer you without.

Baby steps: Don't jump into the deep end. You aren't going to wake up and decide todays the day. I started with wearing lighter coverage foundations, BB creams and just concealer on blemishes. Small journeys like walking the dog, or going to the supermarket don't require a full face of makeup

Accept the skin your in: This is something i struggled with, no matter how hard you wish you can't change your skin, you can look after it, improve it but its still your skin. Learn to accept it and work with it, and you will see a difference in no time.

Face Masks: This is a bit of a weird one and it could be only me but whenever i use a face mask i just feel better about myself and my skin. Defiantly check out the lush ones!

You don't need bitches in your life: This applies to everything really. I know school/college and even work, you get bitches. You probably wont see it, but its the sort of 'friends' who make digs at you 'that makes you look fat' 'is that a spot' 'your hair looks greasy' those people are the people you need to drop right now, doesn't matter if they are having a laugh, or tell you to take a joke. No. You cut that person out. You will not let another person put you down ok.

I know these aren't like top secret tips or anything, but i thought it could help you a little if you are feeling a little down and just know you're not the only one.


Have you got any tips?

Wish List: The Topshop Edit





I haven't done a wish list in ages. And i thought to do a fashion one as i want to involve fashion more into my blog.
Topshop is my favourite high street shop, its always up with the tread and my favourite part is that its fairly colourless, and that just wins me over.

I know monochrome has been a trend lately, but i don't see myself coming out of it anytime soon.
A bonus for me is that when you're wearing greys, whites and blacks, it means you can make your makeup as colourful as you want.

I really love the kimono cardigan, its not usually thinks i opt for but something about this one is simply gorgeous and would go with anything and if i see it in my topshop, i don't think i could resist.

Also i'm so close to 100 followers on bloglovin and i think a little giveaway might be needed.

January Favourites



January was quite a disappointing favourite month for me as i thought id be having to get makeup to battle for a space, but i had a lot of problems with my skin, breakouts, dry patches and my eyes are driving me insane, swollen, dry, watery, itchy, flakey, you name it my eyes had it.
If any of you have any suggestions please tell me, i beg.

Into the favourites then shall we?


Naked On The Run: I wrote a whole post on this beauty here so wont go on too much. Not only is it handy to travel with the eyeshadow shades are to die for.

Mac Velvet Teddy: A shade that has been making a appearance in a lot of bloggers world, its a beautiful matte dark nude, think Kylie Jenner.

Mac Studio Fix Fluid NW15: Although the shade is totally off for me when not tanned, i love it, i would say its a medium coverage but buildable. I defiantly going to get one in pale shade, but i love mixing this with Rimmel Wake me up

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quarts: This highlight is insane, i brought it as a few youtubers raved about it and i can see why, its the most pretty intense but not too intense highlight (get me?) and yaaaas.

Anastasia Brow Wiz: Brow Wiz gives me life, like guys, I've never had so many compliments on my brows and its surprisingly quick to do, like i don't even want to try any more brow products now i have this in my life.

Burts Bees Ultra- Conditioning Lip Balm: Its cold, like heck its even snowing, my lips need so TLC, from the cold wind outside to the heating inside, i have this on my lips 24/7.

Why Men Love Bitches: A bit of a different favourite but i couldn't fail to mention it, i haven't been able to put this book down, not only is Sherry Argov hilarious, the things she says are completely true and i've defiantly picked up a couple or hundred tips.

I feel like my favourites was really small, but i didn't want to put in a product i don't 100% love.

Spring Inspiration

I am without a doubt the last person to get a pintrest and i'd be lying if i wasn't slightly addicted.
I don't know about you's, but its snowing where i live and i just can't get Spring and warmer weather off my mind.
So i've been looking for some makeup inspiration for Spring.

You will probably notice a pattern in the pictures above that its very about the minimal makeup or winged eyeliner and orange toned lips.

I'm head over heels with pairing cat eyes with a bold lip and yes it looks lovely in the winter with a dark lip, but the orange lips are defiantly something i look forward too and i love a orange on darker skin tones, i think it just looks beautiful.

But who would i be without a classic nude lip? so naturally i had to throw a few in.

I hope this helped you get just a bit more excited for Spring because now i can't wait!

Whats your inspiration?
