                                                                       Purple and Green eyes!

Hi everyone so I got a little bored today so I though I would do another look for you! I used the Urban decay Vice palette to do make it so here you go... :)

Sorry that the pic is quite small I tried to make it bigger but it blurred and... I really do smile normally ha :)

Revlon Photoready Foundation
Bourjois Health Mix Concealer
Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Bobbi Brown Blush in Nectar
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

I applied the foundation with a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush I like this foundation as it gives good coverage and it gives a nice glow to the skin, I then used the concealer under my eyes and blended it in. I chose a matte finish for this look so lightly brushed the pressed powder all over the face. I then did a little contouring with the Benefit bronzer then applied my blush. to finish I added a touch of the highlight on the tops of the cheekbones.


Urban Decay Primer Potion
Urban Decay Vice Palette colours - Vice, Anonymous, Rapture, Provocateur, Unhinged, Junkie.
L'Oreal Gel Intenza Eyeliner
Avon Pro Kohl eyeliner in Black
Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara
Benefit Brow Zings

So first I primed all of my lid all the way up to the brow, I then applied Rapture all over the lid. I then added Vice into the crease and blended up, I applied I small amount of Junkie on top of the Vice and blended up towards the brow. I used Anonymous o highlight under my brow and to smoke out where the eye shadow ends so there are no harsh lines. I finally patted Provocateur just to the centre of the eyelid to add more sparkle, and finished with the gel liner going into a flick in the outer corner.

For the under eye I used an angle brush to strongly line it with Unhinged and Junkie together, starting with the inner corner all the way to underlining the flick from the eyeliner. I then used Rapture and Provocateur just a little in the inner corner blending into the green. I then finished by lining the water line with a pencil and applying mascara to top and bottom lashes.

                                                                        Get this look!!

Hi everyone!! I thought today id show you one of my makeup look and what I used to get it :) I went out a couple of weeks ago and actually had enough time to get ready and do my makeup so I thought id share it with you !!!

Sorry for the miserable face!! ha im not normally so serious lol.

The picture quality is not amazing :(... but I am new to this blogging thing :D

So I wanted the eyes to stand out so I did them really dark with a nude lip and this is what I used:

Smashbox Photofinish primer
Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation
Maybelline The Eraser Eye concealer
No7 Translucent loose powder
Benefit Hoola bronzer
Bobbi brown blush in Nectar
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in soft and gentle
Benefit Brow Zings

First I primed my face and then used my beauty blender to blend in the foundation, I then applied concealer under my eyes down my nose and to the centre of my forehead. Next I applied only a little sweep of loose powder to set everything, I then slightly contoured my face with the matte bronzer just under my cheekbones and the sides of the forehead. I then added my blush in the cheekbones and blended up. I finished with the highlighter above the blush on the top of the cheekbones and filling in my brows. 

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Mac Paint Pot in blackground
Urban Decay Naked Pallet colour creep
Urban Decay Naked Pallet colour half baked
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner
Avon Professional Kohl Pencil
Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara

First I primed all of the eye, then applied the paint pot just on top of the lid, I then blended this out. Next I used the black eye shadow and applied this on top of the paint pot and into the crease, I then blended this out until there was no harsh lines. On top of the socket bone I ran through a little bit of the bronzer to blend out where the black finished so it wasn't too harsh, I then highlighted the brow bone with the MAC highlighter. For the under eye I firstly lined the eye with the pencil stopping halfway before the inner corner, I then smoked this out with the black eyeshadow, then form the inner corner I lined it with the gold eyeshadow and blended it into the black, this really made the eye pop!! I finished the eyes with a couple of coats of mascara and false lashes.

No7 High Shine lip gloss in whisper

This gave me the nude lip I wanted but with a bit of sparkle to match the gold eyeshadow.

And:   Just in case you wanted to know, my top was from Mango and My Necklace from Topshop.

So that is my look guys and I hope you liked it, thank you for reading, and ill be back soon :) xx

                                                                    My Mini Makeup Hall !!

Hey guys! so I thought id make my first ever blog post about my shopping trip last week. I was a little stressed as I had my first pro makeup job for a wedding so I went to get a few things (and came home with everything!!) :) .

I went to Clinique and Urban Decay which are two of my favourite brands and got a little carried away! So here goes....

First I got these Clinique Chubby Stick (£17.00)
the colours I chose where: woppin' watermelon, mega melon and heaping hazelnut. As soon as I tried these I loved them! they are quite sheer as they are not a lipstick they are a lip balm. The slightly glossy finish is beautiful and they are so moisturising, and they wear off really nicely. :)

Sorry for the swatches they are not the best think I need some practice! so at the top is mega melon which is a lovely deep coral colour, next down is woppin' watermelon which is a nice light pink and at the bottom is heaping hazelnut that is a lovely nude colour. There are so many colours to choose from so make sure you try them out!

From Clinique, I also brought two concealers.

These are the Clinique Airbrush Concealer (£18.00), I got two lighter shades, the lightest in Fair and Neutral Fair! I'm not a massive fan of pens like these but I really like the concealer as its for all skin types and, with having very sensitive eyes I like to use products I no wont make my eyes stream and that's why I chose this brand. The concealer really does brighten the eyes and I also use it to illuminate down the nose and forehead slightly. And best of all it does not sit in any lines :)

So at the top is the shade Fair, this is very pink toned and suitable for fair skinned, the bottom shade is neutral fair that would be suited to most skin tones. They blend in really nicely with a damp sponge which is my favourite method! 

Now on to Urban Decay!

First I got these three 24/7 glide on lip pencil (£13.00)
in Native, Streak and Naked. I was so excited to try these and they definitely did NOT fail to amaze me, the colours to choose from are all amazing! they a creamy but easy to control, and they stay on FOREVER!!

So at the top we have Streak, this is a beautiful pink coral with a shimmer to it, in the middle is Naked, this is a really nice nude, it looks great with the chubby stick in heaping hazelnut on top. Finally at the bottom is Native a lovely nude pink its just beautiful!!

Finally my last purchase I'm going to tell you about is the 24/7 glide on eye pencil (£14.00)
I can now understand all the hype about these eyeliner, they do not come off without a fight!! There are so many colours to chose from I was mesmerised at the counter, my hand was multi coloured by the time I left! I chose first to get a black and brown so I got Perversion and Demolition. Most of the colours did have glitter in they but I wanted matte colours so there wasn't as much choice.

At the top is Demolition it was the only matte brown, but it is very nice and matte, the only downside is it does set a little dark for me however it is a good alternative to black as its still dark but will make your eye makeup look more softer. The bottom is Perversion, probably THE BEST eye pencil I've ever owned, this baby is very matte and black its striking! You can also smudge this out before it sets too which looks great for a Smokey eye!

There you go, my first ever post hope you liked it and thank you for reading it, make sure you come back for more :)
