How To : Applying False Eyelashes!

We all wear or have worn false lashes at some point in time however are they always worth the fuss? Personally I love false lashes, I think they look great with full glam makeup look and more natural ones worn on their own look so pretty for day time. However it has taken me a long time to perfect my application of the false lash, I have known them ruin the start of a nights out when they just don't want to co-operate.

Current Strobing Duo!

The Makeup world has gone crazy about strobing this summer. Stobing is basically extreme highlighting and even though I love a little bit of contouring, I am really enjoying this super glowing look!

Todays look - All Matte Everything!

Todays makeup look is something I have never done before. It is an all matte look from base to the eyes, which is more out of my comfort zone but I was really happy with how it turned out!

Batiste Dry Shampoo!

Batiste Dry Shampoo

If you have read my blog for a while you will know I don't talk about hair products very often, this isn't for any particular reason, I am just personally very low maintenance with my hair as I find it very hard to find products which don't irritate my scalp. Which is why I get so excited when I find a new hair product to add to my collection.

My Outfit Of The Day - #UltimateVegasOutfit

Hey everyone today is going to be a bit of a different post so I hope you like it! I recently found out that is searching for the #UltimateVegasOutfit, which got me thinking about what I would wear if I were to check in to one of the Las Vegas Hotels and spend the day in Sin City! When I first thought of the endless possibilities of outfit choices my brain nearly exploded... until I actually looked into my wardrobe! I personally am not a party dress kind of girl therefore I wanted to pick an outfit I would feel comfortable and myself in but also feel I looked dressed up enough to spend the day in Vegas.

Instagram Lately!

Hey everyone, the past couple of weeks I feel I have been spending a lot of time on Instagram... I think I may be a little addicted. I recently hit 1,000 followers which has been a little goal for me for a while so thank you to any of you that follow me! A link to my profile is here.

As I have started to take my instagram photos in advance it is so much easier.  I have been finding I am much more active in posting and interacting with you.

July Beauty Favourites!

Welcome back everyone, it is time for another monthly favourites. Over this past few weeks I have done quite a bit of shopping so I felt that I had so many producys to include. So I don't make this so long winded I have only included the products I have used the most of all. 

First off is the Clinique Take The Day Off Balm £22.00. I have searched for so long to find the perfect cleanser for me and I have finally found it. This balm removes all my makeup effortlessly and glides over the skin so gently there is no scrubbing or pulling at all. It is fragrance free which is perfect for my sensitive skin and it makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. As I am now cleansing my face properly with this I have definitely noticed an improvement in my skin, I am so happy this is part of my skincare routine.  

Next is another skincare product from Clinique and it is the Mild Clarifying Lotion £16.50. To be honest I have owned this for a very long time, however as I had not been happy with my skin I started to use this along with the cleanser. This is an alcohol and fragrance free exfoliator and this one is for more sensitive skins like mine. You simply use a cotton pad to sweep over the face and neck morning and night and I really like how gentle is it. After incorporating this into my skincare routine the whole appearance of my skin looks and feels so much healthier.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade £15.00 has been on my wish list for a while now. I purchased this in my last shopping haul which you read here, and have been using it all the time. I went through a little trial and error to begin with to find my routine, and would now be reluctant to use anything else on my brows. Using an angled brush I apply a small amount to the back of my hand then simple fill in my brows. What I love about this is that you can create a really defined sculpted brow or just use the tiniest amount across the hairs for a little more thickness and definition. Either way when this sets, it will not budge and becomes waterproof... what more could you want. It is amazing how little of the product you need I think it is great value for money!

A foundation I have been using quite a bit lately is the Vichy Dermablend Foundation £18.00. This is an extremely pigmented foundation mainly used for corrective makeup such as covering achne, scars, birthmarks and even tattoos. Now I don't need anything survere covering up, I just like to use this as a normal everyday foundation. I dont need half as much product as when using other foundations and the coverage is great. It is really nice and comfortable on the skin, plus it is very long lasting too. 

Last but not least is the Zoeva Cat Eye Pen £5.50 which I also brought in my latest haul. I have been looking for a liquid eyeliner to help with precision and this really ticks all the boxes for me. The tip of the pen is so pointy you can draw very precise eyeliner with this. I will either use this for all the liner or just use it to draw my shape first then fill it in with another product. 

So they are my July favourites, I hope you like them!

Barry M Nail Paint!

Barry M Nail Paint in Green Berry and Ballerina

I have used Barry M for a very long time, it is one of the first brands I went to when I first started to wear makeup. I really like the quality of their products and they are so suitable for everyone being in the drug store. The packaging is bright and fun also and over the summer I have been wearing the Barry M Nails Paints constantly. 

I really like these in particular as they are so long wearing. I find it really hard to find a good quality nail polish which does not chip after a a day or two. They apply really evenly and are very pigmented, I usually apply two coats and you can not see any sheer spots or brush strokes when it dries. They dry really quickly and I can get straight on with my day and not worry about knocking them. 

The two shades I have been wearing a lot over this summer is Green Berry and Ballerina, There is a rainbow of shades and different finishes to choose from there is definitely something for everyone, they are perfect for summer.

Todays Look: Indie Chick!

Hey everyone and welcome back, today I thought I would do a bit of a different makeup look today. I have gone quite indie with this look and I think it would be perfect for any festival or gig you are going too.

VICHY DermaBlend Foundation
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
Anastasia Beverly Hills contour Kit
Benefit hoola Bronzer
L'Oreal Blush in Sandalwood Pink
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

I first applied the foundation all over with a Beauty Blender then concealed my under eyes. I set the concealer with the two lightest shades from my contour kit then mixed two of the darker shades to contour. I applied a bit of bronzer to blend the contour and to warm up the face then finished with my blush and highlight.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Aurburn
Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Teddy Eye Pencil
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
Zoeva Cat Eye Pen
Eylure False Lashes in the style Nadine

First off I mixed Substitute For Love and Freshly Toasted into the crease and then blended. I used a little bit of Delicate Acidity deeper into the crease to darken it slightly. I lined the top lash line with the cat eye pen ending in a small wing. I mixed together Beans Are White and Delicate Acidity and used this along the lower lash line, I also carried this outwards to extend the wing from the liquid liner. To finish I lined the water line with the Teddy eye pencil then applied lots of mascara and false lashes.  

MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil
MAC Rebel Lipstick
I lined and filled in the lips with the pencil then went over the top with the lipstick.

I hope you like this Indie Chick look and I will be back soon!
