Avon True colour eyeliner review

Avon True colour eyeliner review

Recently on my make up routine post that i posted a few days ago i told you all about the eyeliner that i’ve been using. And I thought because I love it so much i would do a review blog post on it. So if you enjoyed this post give it a like and comment and if you haven’t already follow the blog!

So i got this eyeliner for Christmas and i’ve already run out. Well actually I think i run out a week or two ago but oh well. I have ordered another one from avon actually thought so hopefully i’ll get that in a few weeks. It’s half price at the minuet so i think that it’s £3, meant to be £6. I get mine in the shade jet black. Honestly without a doubt i can say that this is the best eyeliner I’ve ever owned. Personally i’m not great at applying eyeliner but i can apply this one really easily. Its not quiet a pen but its also not a pencil, it’s in the middle so i don’t know lets just say thats it’s like a crayon i guess. So i would defiantly recommend this to someone who 1. Isn’t great at applying eye liner (like myself) or 2. someone who wants just a good quality eyeliner.                                                                                It’s one of them ones where you have to wind it up from the bottom to get more of it out. The only problem i find with this is that i kept on snapping it, but then again i’m clumsy so what can i expect really. Below i’ve attached some pictures so that you can see the shade and whatever, and the applicant part. (that sounds so posh and i didn’t mean for it to be).

If you want to buy this eyeliner then i’ll leave a link here for you all.   I think that this is the right one!

Embarrassing stories..

Embarrassing stories..

I thought that today i would tell you all some embarrassing stories! Tell me in the comments some of your embarrassing stories and give this post a like if you enjoyed it.

I went skiing in December and it was my first time. I’m quiet a clumsy person as well so I was surprised i didn’t end up in hospital or anything like that. So anyway because it was my first time me (and the people i went with) went to ski school. Now I thought that i found it really easy. This was probably because i only learnt the easy stuff.  So the next day I went up to the top of the chair lift with my mum, to go down the blue run. Got to the the top of the ski lift and long story short couldn’t get off. Therefore they had to stop the whole entire ski lift just so that i could get off. Once i was off i slipped on a tiny patch of ice and boom. Down the hill i went. My skis came of, i lost my poles. And i just tumbled all the way down the hill. In the end i just gave up trying to stop myself and i just let myself roll. Luckily though i didn’t hurt my self but still it was pretty embarrassing!

The next one isn’t really embarrassing but i thought that i would share it with you anyway. When i was in reception the ‘thing’ then was at lunchtime, to go back into the classroom and cut your hair. I feel like everyone gave themselves a hair cut when they were younger. Anyway i went into the classroom with my friend and we hid under the table and just cut our hair. Then I remember coming out of school and my mum was like what have you done!? Then i like half cried, half laughed. For the rest of that month i had to wear a headband to cover it up.

When i was something like 2 years old, i used to be obsessed with the nursery rhyme humpty dumpty. So one day while my mum was in the shower i decided to grab her red lipstick and draw humpty dumpty on her white bathroom wall. Which can i just say i thought that actually that was quiet clever because you know i drew humpty dumpty on the wall. Literally. My mum didn’t think it was that clever though..

If you liked this post give it a like. And if you want i could do another post like this because trust me i have got loads of embarrassing stories to tell all of you!

My Updated Skin Care Routine

My Updated Skin Care Routine

So as promised here is my updated skin care routine. Don’t forget to give it a like if you enjoyed reading!

Now I’m no expert in skincare and in fact I’m pretty rubbish. I try and wash my face properly twice a day and remove all my make up of an evening but I hardly ever do. It’s just so much work to do all of that. However at the moment I’m currently enjoying doing my skin care routine.I mean there are still the odd days where i don’t do it but other than that I’m pretty good. Ive noticed a difference in my skin but it happened over time not over night though.

The first thing i do is dampen my face with cold water. I just use my hands to do this because i can’t be bothered to fuss around with a flannel. To be honest most of this routine is basically putting a bunch of products on my face and washing them off my with my hands. But oh well…

I use to have this really good triple action face wash which i completely loved, i think that it was by simple. But now, i’ve looked in every shop for it (well maybe not every shop) and i can’t find it anywhere. So i got this double action face wash which is a moisturising one which is from simple. I like to put this on and leave it for around 5 minuets so it soaks into my skin. While its soaking into my skin i usually brush my teeth or something like that.img_7031

Like I said I wash that off with cold water and my hands. Thats probably why my skin is all clogged up, because i wash it off with my hands, which are most likely covered in germs. Once thats al washed off I putt on my facial scrub. Its got tiny little bits of i don’t really know what they are but i think the purpose of them is to exfoliate the skin. I actually find this really relaxing so I would defiantly recommend. Again this is from simple.img_7032

I feel like everything mentioned in this post if from simple. It’s because when I brought it all there was some sort of offer on so i just grabbed pretty much everything. Also i have sensitive skin so simples good for that.

Anyway, i obviously wash that off with my hands and water. Because you know I’m so good at this whole skincare malarky. And I dry my face with a towel. Not any special towel just the bog standard hand towel.

When my face is completely dry and bright red because i would have pressed down on the towel really hard in hope that my face would dry quicker, i put on my facial toner. Again this is from simple. Apparently when you apply this you have to do it in a upwards motion. I don’t really understand why but you gotta do what you gotta do. I use a cotton bud to apply this. The only trouble with using a cotton bud is that the liquid makes the little fibres come out and go all over your face. Which is great.img_7033

Lastly i moisturise my face. And guess what?! My moisturiser isn’t from simple, its a tea tree product. I would attach a picture of this moisturiser but i’ve lost it so I’m not using that at the minuet…

So there was my skincare routine, which i barely ever do but have the products for it…

Everyday make up Routine

Everyday make up Routine

Hello everyone,

Like I promised here is my make up routine. Give this post a like if you liked it!

The first thing that i like to do is to put some primer on my face. The current primer I’m using is the number 7 air brush away primer. I got this in my number 7 beauty advent calendar. Its really good and i would defiantly recommend it!img_7008

Sometimes I put on my benefit Oxygen wow foundation but sometimes I don’t. I feel like this foundation makes my skin come out in little spots and it also adds a little bit of colour. So i don’t always use that foundation.img_6729

I use this 10 hour coverage concealer from super drug. I really like this one because i find that i covers up any blemishes really well. So yeah i would recommend this as well.img_6732

To set my foundation/concealer I use my benefit powder. I really like using powder because i find that it provides a good light coverage. So concealer and powder together make a good base I find.img_6728

Then to add a little bit of colour to my face I use a highlight and bronzer. I’ve got to pallets which I like to use for this. My face the day pallet, which I have done a review on that so go check that out or my lipsy London pallet. I really like both of these and they work well so i would recommend that.

Sometimes I put on my contour and highlight using my wonder stick. I got this for Christmas and it’s so useful. But sometimes the contour makes my skin go all blemishes and spotty so thats not too good. And it can feel a little bit cakey so you have to blend it really well and not use loads.

Then depending on how I’m feeling i will add a little bit of blush. I like to use either the number 7 blusher, the one in my face the day pallet or the one in my lipsey pallet. They are all really good however i would probably say that the number 7 one is my favourite!

So when I have got a little bit of colour on my face I fill in my brows. My brows are a really awkward shape to fill so i just have to kind of follow the hairs. I use the benefit brow pencil to do this. I find this really good for people who aren’t that great at filling in their brows (like me) or if you are looking for more of a natural look. It comes with a brow brush on the end so that you can sort of brush the colour through i guess.img_6730

Now i go onto my eyes. I have a lot of eye shadow so I don’t really have a favourite one as such. Although i rather do like the avon pallet that i got for Christmas. The ones in that pallet are pretty much my most used shades so i would probably say that one. Sometimes I do a smokey eye sometimes I don’t and i just go for one colour it all depends. 😉img_7009

Then i like to go onto my eye liner. The eye liner that i’am completely loving at the moment is the avon one which is amazing and I need to get another one because i haven’t got much left! Its super easy to apply which makes it the best. It’s not quite a pencil but it’s not a liquid pen, it’s in the middle.img_7010

I have a few mascaras that I like to use. The first one is from Avon and the reason i like the one is because it has a little dial on the bottom for the intensity i think. And the other one is the rimmel London mascara. It gives your lashes loads of volume and makes them pop out. I would defiantly recommend either of these.

The last thing i do is my lips. Now i don’t line my lips because i find that near enough impossible. So i just go onto lipstick or lipgloss. My favourite lipstick at the moment is the number 7 bright red one. I love red lipstick so thats defiantly a winner. And my favourite lip gloss if this natural colour one from autograph.

So there is my slightly updated makeup routine. I really like writing these so let me know if you would like more. Also if you haven’t already don’t forget to follow, we are so close to 100!

Bye for now

My favourite places

My favourite places

Hello everyone,

I decided to write up a post on all my favourite places to go for a holiday or long weekend. Let me know in the comments your favourite places to go! And if you enjoyed this post give it a like.

  1. So my favourite place to go on a holiday is Jamaica. We went their for our summer holiday about 2 years ago and it was amazing! The hotel was so nice. It was on the beach and had loads of pools and a nice spa. We went on day trips to the waterfalls and to a national park. It’s a really nice country and because its small (er than other countries) we hired a driver to take us to some of the best places. Around the corner from our hotel there where some locals who had some little gift shops so that was fun to go to.
  2. Every year I go camping in Cornwall. I really like Cornwall. The beaches are lovely and  the scenery is just so pretty. Theres this pub that we go to which is over a cliff and on the beach. Thats a really good place to watch the sunsets. I like going shopping down the little streets by the beach. We always get the bus from our campsite to the shops and then go to the beach and get the bus back.
  3. Pretty much every year we go to Dubai. Dubai is really good for the site seeing and activities. Theres a water park and this jeep thing where you go over the sand dunes in jeeps. At night you can see all the lights from all of the sky scrapers, its so pretty.
  4. A few years ago we went to Florida to Disney and it was my absolute favourite holiday ever. I like the set of holidays where you get to do activities and stuff like that. Universal Studios was defiantly my favourite park.
  5. Another place that i really like to go to is Brighton. The shopping is great down the lanes and the pier is so fun! I feel like its such a pretty place.

Tell me in the comments your favourite holiday/place to go.

My cup cake recipe!

My cup cake recipe!

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I made some little cupcakes so  I thought that i would share my recipe with you. If you like this post don’t forget to give it a like!

Before you start you need to pre heat your oven at 180 degrees, or gas mark 4 and line a 12 hole muffin tray with some cupcake cases.

Ingredients:

  • 175g of butter at room temperature
  • 175g of self raising flour
  • 175g of caster sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1-4 tbsp of milk.

For the icing

  • 175g of butter
  • 350g of icing sugar
  • some sort of sprinkles type thing.
  • Maybe a drop of milk depending what you want your icing to be like
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  1. Once you’ve preheated your oven you need to mix all your cake ingredients in a bowl. When i made my cakes i literally just chucked everything in at once and whisked it with my electric whisk. Because i don’t have the patience to do it all one by one.
  2. When everything is all mixed up you need to put your mixture in cupcakes cases. Now to do this i like to do a ice cream scoop because then everything is getting the same amount of mixture if you know what i mean.
  3. Now you need to cook them for 20 minuets or until they are brown on top. You could also stick a skewer in the middle of a few of them to make sure it comes out clean.
  4. When your cakes are all cooked leave them to cool for a good 40 minuets or something. I learned this the hard way because i left them to cool for like 20 minuets and when i put the icing on them it just melted.
  5. While your cakes are cooling you can make up your icing. To do this you literally just put your icing sugar and butter in a bowl and mix it up. I find i helps to do it with a folk first them use a whisk so that the icing sugar doesn’t go everywhere.
  6. If you want to you could add a colour to your icing but i couldn’t be bothered to do that so i just left mine the natural buttercream icing colour.
  7. Now you can put the icing on your cakes. You could do this however you like. I just used a large nozzle on my piping bag and piped it but my piping just failed apart.
  8. I like to just put a few sprinkles of it to finish the look of. I used some little sugar stars.

Okay so that was my vanilla cup cake recipe. Don’t forget to keep checking back for another post.

Lots of love
