Birthday Haul 2019!

Hello you lovely lot! Earlier in the month it was my birthday, this year rather than get myself loads of treats I bought myself a holiday to Amsterdam, which is where I am right now! Of course there were a few things I had my eye on and decided to treat myself to, couldn’t say no to using my birthday as the excuse to pick them up!

Cloud Inspired Makeup Look

Hello everyone, with the weather becoming somewhat colder and the skies greyer it inspired me to do this smokey eye I saw Desi Perkins do on her channel. It reminded me of the cloudy skies we’ve been having here in the UK.

Starting with the smokey eyes using a charcoal grey and black on the outer corner, smoking it out to a cat eye before adding on a shimmering grey on the lid of the eye. Blending out the charcoal grey and black on the lower lash line too. I then added lashes and black liner on water line. I then did the rest of my makeup, keeping the lips neutral to focus the look on the eyes.

Summer Empties 2018

Hello everyone! I can’t believe how cold it’s been here in the UK, as a result I have been suffering from a cold over the last week. It needs to hurry up and go! Anyway onto todays post I have all the makeup and skincare I’ve used up over the last 3 months! This year I have been doing empties every three months instead of every two like I did last year, making this one the penultimate one before the end of the year. Which is mad to think about as there is so much of the year left!

Sun Inspired Makeup

Hello everyone, I hope you are well! The UK had a gorgeous few months and it inspired me to start a weather inspired makeup series here on my blog. I have never done a series on my blog before and so thought that I would give it a go! In this series I will be creating wearable looks that are inspired by the seasons and the weather!

So to kick off this new series I thought what better way than with a sun inspired makeup look! It has been sunny over the past few weekends still here in the UK, so I thought I’d make the most of the sunny weather before it starts to get colder and greyer! I enjoyed wearing this look, it made me feel super happy and basically like a slice of sunshine, haha!

July & August Haul 2018

Over the last few months I have unintentionally bought quite a few new bits of makeup and so thought I would share what I have accumulated over the last few months! I did a haul in June and since then I have been away a few times and treated myself to a few goodies I have been eyeing up for a while.

At the beginning of July I went to Edinburgh and it was such an amazing time, you can check out Day One Day Two, Day Three and Day Four if you want to see what we got up to! During that trip away I bought a few things and was gifted a few for doing well in my HNC. I picked up the Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer in Porcelain from Space NK. I don’t live near a Space NK and had been looking for a new concealer for a while. I had seen a few good reviews on this concealer and it was a good shade for my skin tone.

Products I Regret Buying

I have been thinking about writing this for a little while as I enjoy reading these types of posts. I have a few products in my collection that really didn’t live up to the hype or didn’t work for me. Whilst this is part of buying makeup and finding things that work for you, it can still be annoying especially if it was high end.
